    I’m really hoping her Yellow still costing 9 AP in-game is an error, and we’ll get a data push to correct it to 7AP. If not…that’s a notable nerf to her hitherto best power.

    Don’t worry folks. These mistakes have no bearing on how supports in PvP will go.

    Why the heck is the costume for the 3* version?! What a rip. I thought it was for the 5*, since she got the rebalance.

    So the rebalance is for 5* but the costume is for 3*? Kinda disappointing.

    Fixed a few issues.

    1. Storm's yellow is still 9AP and not 7AP so that's an error in our dev notes. The 7 was inadvertently mentioned cause of the +2AP gained from firing it, but the cost should've stayed at 9AP.

    2. The Hellfire Gala costume is for 3-Star Storm (Mohawk) and NOT for 5-Star Storm (Ororo Munroe)

    She'll be usable when boosted, only because she now has adequate health and match damage.

    That's the standard they're aiming for. The problem is that a few characters far exceed that standard, and make everyone else look awful in comparison.

    Yeah, I've had Sinister favorited since his rework, this one now makes me very sad since I wanted her to be good. Can't have Storm running amok with that 7ap yellow though... :disappointed:

    What’s the point of these announcement posts if there are such big errors in them? I understand you’re just the messenger, and I am sure this is frustrating for you as well, but please try to do better as a whole. This is disappointing.

    Y’all might as well have put her Green at 7 AP too. Very disappointing.

    I do appreciate the numbers buff, and it probably means she’s generally just that bit better than 1asc5 Storm, ceteris paribus. But yes, in a time where Jane shakes the board passively every turn (please fellow forumites don’t turn this into yet another Jane thread), Shang can go winfinite by himself, Omega does passive AoE every turn that’s unaffected by stuns, and many other great mechanics (especially now with ascended 4s), this rework is a bit of a letdown. There have been numerous good reworks that didn’t break the character; see Kingpin, FirstCap, Sinister, Strange, Magneto, Magik, Yellowjacket, Moon Knight. Reducing the cost of Storm’s Green and Yellow to 7 or even 6 AP wouldn’t have broken her at all.

    So wait...3* Storm (Mohawk) is getting a costume overlay where she doesn't have a mohawk? Isn't that sort of like giving Alligator Loki a costume except now they are a hamster?

    Could just be me.

    I mean of all places I could see you having an eyepatch it would be the Hellfire Club, it could have been all sparkly!

    Mind you as Patch never really NEEDED his patch they could have just called him Wolverine (Nobody is fooled).

    Would you want to tell the immortal with unbreakable bones, claws, and a legendary temper that his costume wasn't fooling anyone? I wouldn't!

    But!…. This rebalance is really what a LOT of the older characters DESPERATELY need. Just a rebalance like this to Spider Man BiB, Cable, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Knull would GREATLY up their usage in my roster.

    I agree completely with your list of 5* who should be priorities for a rebalance. For me, Jessica Jones is the top of the list. Years ago when I started playing, she felt like such a powerhouse, but she's been left in the dust. But I do love the bonkers-ness of her powers, like when she downs Galactus by throwing him through a window, or when she downs a robot by taking embarrassing photos of it.

    Just came here to say if that costume was for the 5* version of Storm I would have bought it in a second. Since I don't use 3* it's a bit of a bummer.

    Visualize along with me please:
    A saddened, very hungry Ororo Munroe, sits outside of a restaurant in the rain, gazing in at MThor and Omega Red as they gorge. A sign in the window "all you can eat 9ap!", Storm has but 7ap. The one true Goddess of the clouds (MThor) sees this, "I thought we told you, your kind doesn't belong here!" as she uses Munroes own sad black passive against her. Munroe, is nomororo.
