    Wasted ISO and milestone shards due to this debacle. This is really unacceptable and seems intentional, especially as it is the 2nd time they have misled on retros in a short period of time (Dr Doom being the other one recently). Very anti-user and disrespectful to your player base. I know Hanlon's Razor and all, but this seems like we were intentionally misled so we'd waste resources.

    I don't believe they intended to mislead, however, it's regrettable that this sort of mistake happens. I did not level up Spider-Man: India, but I feel bad for the players who did. Hopefully, we'll hear back from the powers that be on what reparations, if any, will be provided to players who spent Iso on the wrong character.

    Sorry folks. I'm not sure where the mix up happened when I was given the info, but the actual feeder charge is above as you've observed already.

    OK, you can throw rocks at me but trying to look on the bright side:

    1.) Spider-Man India is pretty good. I would level him up anyway.
    2.) You will have got him higher so if/when he becomes a feeder you can benefit.

    OK, so there are no more Spider characters in 2024 but, uhm...OK maybe I didn't think the second point out that well.

    Yea, of course it's not the end of the world or anything. And it's not like Anti-Venom already fed someone and so I lost out on those covers (cough cough, Invisible Woman and 5Doom). And yes, India is a strong character anyway.

    With that said, I am a min-maxer and resource optimizer at heart and (for whatever you or others may think about that) it's actually one of the 'joys' that I get out of this game. If that wasn't an aspect of the long-game of MPQ, I'd probably not be as invested as I am. To be bamboozled twice in three months reduces an aspect of the game that I enjoy and makes me lose a ton of trust in a game that generally brings comfort.

    It was Agatha all along!

    If I had to guess, they messed up where they were supposed to add Kaine to the "Roster" lists. I couldn't find him this morning, and had to favorite him after I drew him from a Mighty. Not a big deal, to be honest, but at least now I had an explanation - they promoted the wrong character to the Roster list.

    I guess we know the next 3/5, eh? Dat yellow is interesting

    That yellow is going to be crazy good with someone like SC who want to keep matching. Or, really, anyone.

    I got my one cover overnight for the Kaine feeder being Spider-Man India, I should certainly get more if it's Anti-Venom, who I have ascended level 451. I submitted a ticket, so we shall see

    Does someone have a screenshot of 5anti-venom rewards tree for the first few levels? The above table is useful, but I would like to see what it says in game.

    You apparently missed the various posts recently about retro rewards for ascended characters.

    Ascending max/min will absolutely screw you for retro covers. You need a 290 before ascending to avoid this. You got what the game says you should get for the Anti-Venom.

    Previously people have widely reported being ignored by CS on this issue. Hope you have better luck.

    dang, oh well, that's on me. thanks

    Not really, they said you could do it without fear of loss, then changed their minds. I have a few in the same boat as you and just waiting to be caught out. 290 is the way from now on.

    I guess the argument would be that this system makes it up to you eventually (unless the 5* characters are supposed to get reset to default rewards? I noticed Doom hasn’t been.)

    I have Anti-Venom at 450, exactly the worst position for this.

    That’s weird. Spider-Woman is back to a normal ascension/5* reward schedule.

    Well, nobody is really talking about Kayne Parker, is he good?, what is your opinion about him?

    Can someone please explain this table to me? I keep getting the feeling that there's a way to better do things in this game that I am not yet privvy to.

    tldr

    Alot of these charts are short term optimized so that you get specific rewards before you would have gotten them naturally (via max-max) the drawback is that you give up the most lucrative part of the farm.

    There are plenty of valid reasons to do this vs max-max but I'll leave you with this guide post.

    High level PVP is usually played in the 600+ realm. So its rare that any char in the sub 500 range is actually important in placements battles.

    From that viewpoint, max-max (i.e. maxing farm value) will always give better resources and sustainability.

    What’s weird is @Dayraven saying Doom is still showing the special table….

    Yeah, I knew about the 1 week duration.
