    Wee aunt may/Emma can one hit kill in pvp now 😂

    Just think of the week when they are boosted

    Why can I play any level in pve but pvp is cap at level 8 (can't go lower)

    Shouldnt pve be cap as well

    I'm happy to have them in pvp but I only ever wanted them on offence not for defence. I'd rather people could punch up faster.

    Anyway I don't think this will go well and I don't care either way as long as they don't nerf supports for pve.

    EB and I agree on this. It is a horrifically bad idea. I do not know why they would want to do this at all. PVP has enough issues and introducing supports does not help any of them.

    Interested to see how this works out.

    At the bleeding edge, I imagine PvP will be like EB says.

    But for a majority of players it probably won't cause turn 1 losses because those players don't have the supports or teams to pull it off.

    On the downside, I expect health pack usage to soar since the AI will be firing a lot more powers.

    Do we specifically know if they will be on defense as well? Did I just overread it?

    Does it clarify if supports are on for defense? Are we just assuming your defensive team includes the supports you had on offence?

    The post shows a picture of them attached to a defensive team.

    The RNG is just plain horrible lately, so NO supports in PVP please... as it is, AI can win in turn 2 already...

    Honestly this would be fine if they'd just killed the free AP supports first.

    What's funny is that they're going to end up doing that anyway, but now we'll have to sit through a few seasons of misery/insanity before they get to it.

    Sounds fun. It will probably cause a lot of chaos next season.

    This! I already run through health packs like my hair is on fire so boo for me. If health pack usage does increase, that'll be the only real effect for me(that I can forsee). Offense, defense or both, having supports in pvp isn't going to change anything for me placement wise. I'm forever going to be looking up at the same two dozen names every season.

    Not a good idea at all, it's bad enough with boosted 5 star characters. and now this 👎 terrible.
