    Certain players like myself would love to create new moves for characters. Have you considered doing a contest where fans can submit move ideas for pre-existing or up and coming characters?

    For those on the unaware, this was something that did occur years ago by another game I still play. Contest runners ended up not using the top three winner's proposed moves, but they did receive in-game rewards.

    They literally just did this a month or 2 ago lol, on reddit. But it was an official contest. Sebastian Shaw was one of the people you could suggest a power for, I forget the rest (mine totally should've won!). No clue if they plan on using said power though. I hope not I think it was pretty broken lol, but it got the most votes.

    You guys are doing great work with modernising the UI. Keep it up.

    Right now, we can go through someone's roster and see what supports they have and who they're equipped to.

    Can you make the (character) roster searchable (by others) too? If that's asking too much, can it be done for commanders or people in your alliance?

    Right now, I have 648 roster slots and 557 characters. All the different ascended characters have made going through the roster a bit of a nightmare, but that's OK when it's your own roster because of the search feature. When I'm scrolling through someone else's... it's easy to miss a specific 5 (or 4) I'm looking for because (at least in my case) there's 182 5s and 235 4s.

    Any chance of Cosmic Ghost Rider, Colossus (Juggernaut), Terrax the Tamer, Crimson Dynamo?

    Please make the small hit targets bigger, the boost and top left back button especially.

    The more often a button is clicked the bigger it should be.

    Is it possible to have a toggle to turn off PVE story text before the node starts? I'm sure no one still reads the story every time a PVE cycles round now? Apologies if this has been asked before!

    I didn't know that. Was it advertised here on the forums even though it was a Reddit exclusive?

    The one change I would suggest is that users could submit moves for any character, existing or up and coming. That way, it could double as a prediction. Suppose you make a move for a character that's yet to appear in MPQ, like my pick would be for Silver Sable or Arana/Anya Corazon. Your move for your character doesn't make the winner's circle - BUT - you did properly predict who's next, granting you a secret consolation reward tied to your submission (covers for the new character, hero coins).

    Do you have plans to expand "12 days of Marvel" of new affiliations i.e. Technologists, Excalibur, Geniuses, Illuminati, Non-humanoids etc.?

    Are there thoughts about daily offers for support-shards similar to character-shards?

    Quandary was a really fun twist on the usual gameplay. I hope it returns after ironing out some of the issues with the prior runs of the Event.

    The Original Puzzle Quest has some additional puzzles that simply required clearing the entire board of a set series of tiles. Any consideration of doing something similar next Quandary or for some other puzzley event?

    Any thoughts to finally adding a 5* Node to Deadpool Daily Quest now you guys are selling 450 1? You could make room by combining the two 2 nodes?

    Ascension is great! It’s really added variety to viable PVP and PVE teams. But there are some characters that I would really love to ascend, but won’t because I don’t want to miss out on feeders (eg 4* Rocket and Red Hulk). Plans to address this?

    Any plans to update and add any more events to the campaign tab, as well as resetting it every month?

    On Discord they've already said they have plans to address this but with an unknown timeline on when it will be completed.

    To be fair their response is still open to interpretation. Imo they need to say something like, " Yes, there are plans to address giving out retro rewards for characters that players have ascended. "

    Yeah, I’m looking for a clear “go ahead and ascend Rocket, we’ll give you whatever 5* feeder reward you miss” and I don’t think we’ve gotten that yet.

    In high end PvP, the metagame is basically 100% Mighty Thor now. What do her usage/winrate numbers look like from your side, are you watching her, and/or is she on a list to get rebalanced anytime soon?

    For many, the ISO drought has worsened as we’re no longer selling 1* covers or flipping maxed 2* s. Can you offer a glimmer of hope on WHEN the ISO debt situation will be addressed?

    Edited for unintentional formatting.

    Could a banking type system be introduced into the game?

    Like being able to bank a certain amount of favoured shards which we can allocate to characters of our choice in the future.
