    Has the event Venom Bomb been retired for good? I don't think I've seen it in ages... the absence of Wakanda pve is nice but we have Infinte pursuit. Again.... surely there are other pve events that we've not had in a while? Can only think of VB, but there must be others....

    The following PvEs haven't been seen recently:
    2024.01.18 = Honor Among Thieves (4D)
    2024.01.08 = Webbed Wonder (3D)
    2024.01.01 = Operation Spider Silk (3D)
    2023.12.28 = Venom Bomb (4D)
    2023.12.21 = Cosmic Chaos (4D)
    2023.12.03 = Hearts of Darkness (4D)
    2023.10.30 = Honor Among Thieves (3D)
    2023.09.07 = Webbed Wonder (4D)
    2023.08.03 = Iso-8 Brotherhood 7D)
    2023.06.15 = Operation Spider Silk (4D)
    2023.02.27 = Enemy of the State (7D)
    2019.12.26 = Prodigal Sun (7D)
    2019.03.21 = Hulk (7D)

    I really, really, really don't care if Honor Among Thieves is never seen again.

    Mindless Ones or Symbiotic enemies everywhere. Banners and attack tiles slowing things down.

    Waves. I hate waves, especially of Mindless Ones and symbiotes. Even more banners and attack tiles slowing things down.

    Nova for some reason hanging out with Symbiotes.

    And of course, the same rewards you get from any other event after spending more time on it.

    Darkveil is showing in buff list next week as a 5*?

    Also, is there only 1x1* Boosted next week?

    All fixed and thank you for the tag!

    Boosted P5 collosus and Wanda at the same time and supports added to them. I'm sure everyone will have great time during that boost week. I've already got a rank 5 fantasticar on my 550 colossus, just need to find a good one for 550 Wanda.... I'm sure everyone will appreciate facing that.

    **** now I got to find 2 supports for them

    Updated the calendar image to reflect that tomorrow's 2* doesn't shift our normal character release schedule, which will continue as follows:

    07/04: "MPQ Veteran... " 2 Star
    07/11: 4 Star
    07/25: 3 Star / 5 Star

    2* Nick Fury (Howling Commando)? A 2* Captain America variant? I mean I assume is 4th July related hence the slot in?

    Nah, it's absolutely Iron Patriot who was released in the Console Version in 2017 (hence MPQ Veteran) and players have been asking about for years. Plus this gives the game a 2 star Iron Man so there will be one at every tier.

    What we are all waiting for is what the power set will look like. The Console version has an incredible power set (albeit expensive by todays standards)

    Imagining a 550 ascended version with that Purple dropping 6 Crits on Turn 0 with supports or the Black blowing up 4 columns :)

    I'm wondering what Support to put on Wanda for her boost week? She doesn't really need held with generating purple so maybe one that adds damage to her repeater?

    I use Quantum Realm so I dont have to match purple at all and select a color on the first turn.

    Otherwise an AP gen for the target AP of her partner.

    Her partner will be Colossus but I think the black AP generator Supports are mostly villain based? I would have to look at properly.

    Fantasticar is maybe the best support on any match damage character. It gives a stacking match damage boost on your first 4 matches + a shot at a cascade for each of them.

    That is what I stuck on one of them, can't remember which off hand and no access to MPQ right now. Good to see it was a good choice.

    I put the fantasticar on collosus and the leapfrog on Wanda. At rank 3 it can reduce a big shot of damage and then make an invisibility tile, to make them even more defensive.

    Any PVE with 2day subs should be retired. PERIOD. (Looking at you, DP PVE) Really hate the 2day subs for messing up the'rhythm'... :D

    As for buff list, personally i dun think the dev really bothered with our feedbacks but we can try... :p

    They usually use them to match up days in a week. I'm sure it's a lot easier to optimize 1 3 day and 1 4 day event then just 3 days.

    There are not many 4 sub events, so we get stuck with MPQ v Deadpool which isn't run very often or other events with 2 day subs.

    Hopefully they starting adding in full featured events again soon though.

    They pulled out the 4-day version of Operation Spider Silk and that came and went without any complaints. I believe Cosmic Chaos and Fight For Wakanda also has 4-day versions.

    Point is if you need to fill the calendar I would rather you repeat these events over 48-hour subs. Waiting for a timer to refresh and constantly having to remind alliance mates not to overclear is not fun.

    Considering only a hand full of PVE available, i totally understand why the dev wants to keep both 3day and 4day versions around. Just need to be aware of it so i dun 'over-clear'... :p

    As for the simulator, i just think of it as an effective way the dev trolls us players with certain team combos since there's no story needed to mash them up...

    Is the new 4* release still on track for tomorrow? Usually, we get the information earlier in the week but I haven't seen anything. Not on the forums or their social media sites :/
