    Why have the 5* weekly boost lists been on the exact same cycle since anniversary and are there plans to mix them up more?

    Are you going to create new PVE’s based on classic/modern comic stories such as Days of Future Past or AVX?

    It feels like many of the 5* since Omega Red have been lackluster. Is there any chance you guys are going to redo the power budget for 5s? Many 4* kits are much more interesting and we'd love them on a 5 without taking months/years to ascend.

    You have many variants of the same character, each with its own star value. How do you determine its star value: by costume, abilities, cover source? In other words, what makes a variant a 1-star vs. 5-star, possibly an alternate costume?

    With the iso-8 desert expanding for many players due to ascension and the 3/5-4 release schedule, what solutions or adjustments to the game economy has the team considered? Maybe expanding LRs to at least M-F & more frequent 2x iso?.

    Is there a reason why some PVE events have been run multiple times in quick succession over the last couple of months? E.g. Cosmic Chaos. Since the return of the 7 days PVE, they have only been ran once? Will this formula be mixed up soon? Thanks :)

    When I select fights in PvP I cannot see the stats of these new boosted ascended characters so going into a match is a complete unknown. Can you fix this so I can view how hard I’m going to be hit before starting the match?

    With the ascended character now making loads of new 4s and 5s the SCL system could do with updating. Are there plans to change this soon SCL 10 must be getting overloaded now as it’s been years since a new SCL was introduced

    Can we have a feature to lock essential character? Like when I want to use loaner I pick it and it stays every fight till I change it manually.

    Implanted Bomb is a really cool and interesting support.
    How many times has it downed the villain it is equipped to since its release?

    ** I can't fill out the google for so can someone post the question for me?

    Can you consider reducing the cooldown timers for team-up by at least 50%?

    Can we get more ascended character offers and in vaults (like 2 and 3 stars ascended to 4 stars) like when you released each batch of ascendable characters?

    When will the Phoenix Five be completed with the release of 5* Namor?

    Are there immediate plans to update the rewards for both the S.H.I.E.L.D. Simulator and Season rewards. At the moment, I can finish in the 11th percentile of a 28 day session and get 3 tokens and 45HP and some R/Iso. Sim rewards also not comparable.

    Have you considered doing weekly character boosts by affiliation, or some other method that might provide better synergy between boosted characters?

    Ascension destroyed the sanctity the game. A 1* character is now more powerful than a 5* character. Will we stop getting overly comlplicated powerset 5* characters that requires a bible to translate? Will you now consider lowering the boost levels?

    To be fair. If you're using a bible to translate stuff then I'd imagine everything is overly complicated.

  • ThisisClemFandango

    Bibles are notoriously hard to translate and are also easily misunderstood.

    Can you set the default 3-characters before starting a battle to be event-specific? For instance, when I go into PVP, I don't want to see the 3 characters I just used in DDQ or PVE. I want to see the 3 characters I last used in PVP.

    You could even take it a step further, and keep the defaults separate for each individual event (Simulator vs PVP1 vs PVP2). I can't tell you the number of times I started a battle in Simulator, with the required PVP character in the center by mistake.
