    I hope I'm reading that wrong and survival isn't just a new kind of node that will be included in same-old-same-old story events. Gotta love how they didn't even answer the question directly in their own PR article...
  • That actually sounds pretty cool. Daken, xforce, and obw will be crucial due to healing.

    Wait, do the enemies get tougher over time? If so, isn't the obvious strategy to sandbag and collect a ton of AP on the first weak opponent then spam your powers to victory?
  • It looks as if the player will not have any version of Wolverine, if are "against" him and the Hand. and his claws. and haircut.

    Based on the Progression rewards and previous PvE rewards for Prodigal Sun; I'm betting on the following powered-up characters
    :elektra: star.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png
    icon_daredevil.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png
    icon_storm.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png
    icon_hawkeye.pngstar.pngstar.png
    icon_captainamerica.pngstar.pngstar.png
    icon_caroldanvers.pngstar.pngstar.png

    :electra: will of course be the required character for most if not all required nodes.

    Well, something weird happened as I sniped My 1st (EDIT: ever) TRIPLE star.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png cover reward ( icon_mrgreen.gificon_e_ugeek.gificon_mrgreen.gif ); the game reloaded at the 30 min. remaining mark, and when it returned, all of the icon_wolverine.png arts have changed (2, 3, and 4 star.png versions.) and they all look....fear inducing icon_e_sad.gif .

    Also, rewards are Patch ( icon_wolverine.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png ) covers, in greenflag.pngyellowflag.pngredflag.png order.

    Top Prog is a greenflag.pngicon_storm.png cover. Yay?
  • Anyone transitioning from star.pngstar.png to star.pngstar.pngstar.png should LEAP on this one. Patch is about a million times better for a transitioning player than some elektra covers. 2 yellows are the only covers I ever bought with real money in the game, and god damn was that money well spent.
  • I'm actually very excited about the Red Ms. Marvel. Aside from that- with the holidays, and travel, and the Elektra grind - I'm happy to take it relatively easy in this one.

    I could use a icon_wolverine.pngyellowflag.png like crazy, and one of each color wouldn't go to waste, but top 20 in a long event? Ugh. If I had my old job, probably. With everyone off for the holiday I have a feeling those top spots will be populated with kiddies on Xmas vacay. Can't hurt to try, but man I'll be bummed when I fall short.

    Buffed list kinda meaningless since 110 Mostorm buffed to whatever is going to go down too quick for more than 1-2 nodes. 5/1/1 DD might be nice in removing special tiles on some nodes, but without patch... expecting reduced usefulness. They really couldn't buff a third 3*? Lame

    Need Patch badly. Got him to 2/2/2 my first month playing... then he was vaulted
  • I need 2 greenflag.png for my Patch to be optimal and I have proven to be terrible at placing high in PVE. Still curious how this'll work out. Not too thrilled with the top progression reward being Mohawk.
  • Yes finally patch rewards! I'm going all out this event i will not get below top 150 no matter what! Also, yay storm reward because she's nearly playable (6 covers) for me and her build is 0/4/2 so i need that green bad. We should be grateful as patch is a great character and green storm is her best cover (some might argue that black is her best)
  • The new icon_wolverine.png art is pretty nice.

    Also, turned this into an event thread and added the following to the OP.

  • Call me crazy but why do we need so many week long PVEs?
  • Vhailorx

    No, week long PVE's are much too long. 3-4 days is ideal, with two running every week.

    And more directly on topic, it would be great if anyone who has already joined the event could post information about the format. Is it a standard pve with recharging nodes and 2:24/3hr timer, or is it something different?

    Yup survival is just a new node. just with more than 3 enemies

    And for the first post
    Sub duration: 36 hours
    Split Essentials: Mohawk/Elektra

    Two every week? wat. You want us to grind even MORE? Subs would last a day under your scheme.

    The new animations and survival mode is pretty laggy for me. Luckily I don't give a damn about this PVE.
  • Vhailorx
    Vhailorx Posts: 5,568 Chairperson of the Boards
    I fear that survival mode is nothing more than a slightly different (and longer) kind of node buried in a same-old same-old story event.

    Ugh.

    And for kensterr, that sucks about laggy play time. . .but . . . GOOD!!! ignore this pve entirely and get your stinking paws off [my patch covers] you damn, dirty. . . etc.

    Not a good start on Android.

    Select first slice, which has already started, push "enter".

    Go into event, please select a slice. I've already done that, I want the first one, as that's always the buggy easy one. Select again, push "enter".

    Go into event, please select a slice. Godsdammit.

    On Steam, I selected a slice this morning with no problems and it starts in 7 hours 40 minutes. probably.

    Edit: killing MPQ and restarting got me into the event. Rassen frassen.
