Just pulled a blue Yelena cover from a Standard Token and the limited banner has gone.

    Well she is still limited as her powers cost 576 AP but now we can enjoy the slow steady climb to activate them on a more regular basis!

    That really sucks. I liked the idea of her being a trophy character you slowly had to earn. Please don’t do that with Bag-Man too!

    They probably have to keep Bagman limited, else the LT will disappear from his rewards.

    Didn't they hint last year that all limited characters might be going? I hope so. Seems a waste to design a character that gets so limited growth or use.

    If you think it’s a waste, you really don’t understand the purpose/meaning behind the character. If he was actually good, then yeah, I would be upset at him being limited. But, he sucks, and his sole purpose is to be a joke, while being the rarest character in the game. He is a legitimate trophy, and nothing more. I always loved that.

    I wouldn't be opposed to them unlimiting Dino/Howard/Taskmaster/Spider-Ham as it seems about time for most of them to join the rest of the MPQ Zoo but Bagman should stay limited. If they did un-limit Dino, etc then I don't mind a future 4 release to replace him/them.

    Awesome character policy change. Let hope bag man gets the same treatment.

    Her best point is her blue now, those traps hit like trucks at 2*. I've been using a Dark Avengers team of her, Ares and Daken on the 2* dailies to much more success than I expected at first.

    Neat! I've always thought Howard and Taskmaster were just number tweaks away from being Good Actually, or at least Interesting. But I do think it would be nice if limited characters had better reward trees.

    Yelena only got Limited because she was so terrible that new players were complaining about pulling her covers, and they didn't want to waste time buffing a 1*. Since they decided to give her a third power and buff her ascended versions, she's not terrible anymore, so there's no reason to keep her Limited.

    I sort of doubt they'll ever buff Bagman, but who knows. Dino/Howard/Spider-Ham should absolutely get the same treatment as Yelena eventually. The game doesn't need multiple joke characters.

    Spider-Ham needs a scrap and rebuild if anyone is expected to play him.

    Yelena's blue is pretty decent, I only have her at 1* still, lvl 50, but it does like 390 dmg on match. Pretty huge in the 1 star land for a passive power.

    Her black is really good too if the enemy uses SAP or counters. And cheap.

    Just got the purple cover I needed to ascend her. Happy days.

    I wonder if she will enter the rotation to be boosted also.

    I've always wanted them to get rid of Limited characters. You shouldn't have to "Limit" characters because they're so terrible that players are upset when they pull covers for them - you should just fix the broken characters! And if that's the rationale, then Rescue, Mysterio, Northstar, and Vision should be Limited too...

    The rare / special / collectible argument never really made sense to me either - there's 147 different 4★ characters in the game, but four of them (Devil Dinosaur, Spider-Ham, Taskmaster, Howard the Duck) are special? How? Is anyone using these characters when they're not required?

    If I want to favorite or max champ or ascend Taskmaster, why shouldn't I be allowed to?

    Nothing wrong with Northstar.

    Now Red Guardian on the other hand...

    He feeds best girl Yelena.
    That's his one redeeming quality.
