While I am still waiting for my first random drop from a match, I am seeing a few maxed out ones already.
I think the vibe from this thread is 5/5/3 but I am seeing a lot of 5/3/5's. What do people think?
Does it make sense for me to keep him in my roster?
I have OBW,Storm,Ares,Wolverine,Thor max covered and levelled. I also have a MNMags with all covers but not levelled at all (65k Iso, eh?).
Torch would be the 4th RG user. My best covered 3 Star is a 9 Cover Patch so I am probably stuck in ** Land for a while.
Should I collect Torch covers? How about levelling MNMags? I have a 8 Cover cMags already so I don't know how useful that is. It's mainly about Roster slots at this point.
I'm still in 2* land and I just got my Torch to 5/4/3 and I am wondering where does he fit on an all-2* roster? OBW + Daken + Torch looks fearsome on paper, but at max level Torch will be tanking Red and Green, OBW will be on Purple and Blue, Daken Black and no one on Yellow. You can make Daken tank Purple for OBW but that defeats the purpose of running this team in my opinion. On offence you are going to get hurt a ton because of the awkward tanking and on defence the AI is awful at using a ton of the skills, triggering Aggressive Recon and Anti-Gravity too early and using Flame Jet and Chemical Reaction wrong. Not the mention that all 3 characters have low HP.
Ares + Torch + OBW seems better but if I am going Ares,OBW + 1 I'd rather have Daken for the strike tile interaction and to tank Black in case you need for a sustainable character to tank an AI ability.
When it comes to Season events, it looks pretty grim too. Torch and Daken have some synergy with Flame Jet/Inferno and strike tiles and Daken can feed some Green to Torch, but Ares + OBW, Daken + OBW, Wolvie + Daken are much superior pairs. Sure if one of the partners gets downed and you're out of health packs you can sub in Torch, but is that really worth an extra roster slot?
Daken and Torch are really good friends, not so much since Daken doesn't tank green, but he does tank black now. I would maybe run Daken/Torch/Ares. Ares will tank green, Daken Black, so HT only exposed on red, or you can run him with Thor and only expose him on green. Either way, Ares gets scary at low health because of Rampage, so you can use him to gather green. OBW doesn't really work well with Torchling because he tanks black and not her, thus the one advantage she could help him with she can't do, which would be steal black.
Thor and Torch are pretty bad together though - Inferno does not play well with high-costing skills like Thor's yellow and green, while Thor's yellow board-shakeup has a chance to destroy the attack tiles generated by Inferno.
Him, Daken and new 2* Ms. Marvel should make a good team. Is the best build 3 green and 5 others?
