    The ascended 4* are getting the +100 level buff that featured 5* SHOULD BE getting, but never have, in boss events. It still makes zero sense that featured 5* get like, +10 levels in these.

    I'm just running a rainbow of ascended guys, and PROPERLY boosted match damage kills him in 5 seconds.

    When did the incoming character on the wave nodes start being placed in the last spot instead of upfront? Noticed it on the noon est. resets and again at the 8pm reset.

    I’m having fun with Torch Jim + Bong + Deathlok

    Need to be more creative with “Boss” events. Spending an entire event fighting three on one battles against an unboosted, trash tier 5* who after several days of play is still only level 300 is about as exciting as watching paint dry.

    They already tried that with Quandary. Shudder

    Not really anything special about the event, other than a different boss...

    But I'm enjoying using Bobbi and Clint (Coulson backing them up) to run through it because I'm a fan of the characters (their graded first appearances are on my living room wall) so I can't complain.

    It's a fairly easy event, but I'm traveling so I appreciate that too.

    If they do a GEDoom event and he's a push over I'll be severely disappointed though.

    As for this one, it's fine for what it is. Some seem to have expected more from Ronan, but I don't understand that expectation.

    Too many nicknames for characters, no clue who bobbi is.

    I agree though Ronan's a bit boring, but it makes for a nice break from pve for some easy prizes. I'd like it if they beefed up these regular boss fights and gave them SOMEthing special though. Have Ronan start with some of his blue CD tiles or something.

    Bobbi Morse is the character name for Mockingbird. She dated and was married to Hawkeye at one time.

    Coulson with Maria Hill is completely insane.

    Cast her black for 6AP, and you get 20k in strikes, plus 5 Coulson CDs that do 20k each. That's 200,000 damage for 6 AP (on a one turn delay).

    The only downside is Coulson potentially reducing Maria's CD tile with his passive -- her CD tile kills her instantly. But that's still kind of flavorful and fun.

    Or Coulson with a Daken team up.
    I... Don't think Coulson is ok.
    He probably needs his CD tiles reduced.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    Seems a really strange change to make. Deliberate or by accident? If deliberate, for what purpose? and so many more deserving areas on which to focus dev effort. So my vote is unintentional.

    Apologies. Clint was Clint in the MCU, while Mockingbird barely got an Easter Egg... And they changed her name.

    Bobbi is Mockingbird. There's no reason I should think people would know who I meant as she's not a mainstream character. I'll just say mockingbird in the future.

    I agree that if they're using existing characters as bosses, they need to be made stronger for the event... But I'm happy to have an easy event this week as well so I'm not complaining.

    Also... Boss events to introduce new villains might be more impactful than using random old ones.

    I'm happy with how straightforward this event is. Not all boss events have to be at Cosmic Chaos or Simulator level of frustration.

    They still start in front, take any immediate damage, and then get rotated to the back after. It’s really strange.

    Made a nice change to have a slightly easier boss event. I don’t think I spent too much game time on this one. Thing, nick fury ascended and enhanced plus Kamala used this team almost entirely throughout

    Take this over quandaries event any day

    No. NO. You keep that nerf the tinykitty away from Coulson. He is perfect!

    I thought Ronan would hit much harder than he did but in the end he was very tame, definitely not even Ant Man levels of terror. When Abigail Brand has the enemy outmatched then you can breathe fairly easy.

    Apologies for the late response you two. I noticed on the final day when the hitman rotated in he stayed in the front after the thugs would go to the back. Wonder if its a bug in a new event, an unannounced change, an announced change I missed, something else? 🤷‍♂️
