Enemy of the state has significant number of subs, although I'm not positive it's a full 7. Be on the lookout for 48-hour subs. (I didn't keep track last time, and the PVE format guide has removed information as it's somewhat outdated.) I'll try to keep this updated as subs progress.

Update after launch: The opening survival wave (Something's Wrong) is repeatable, at least for now.
Update after SHIELD Base sub closes: Something's Wrong is no longer repeatable. The sub which unlocks Avengers Tower is also one-and-done.

Sub 1, SHIELD Base, is 48 hours.

Sub 2, Avengers Tower, is 24 hours. I /think/ the remaining subs will be 24 hours each. (Edit 7/12: no, I misread and it really was 24 hours.)

Sub 3, X- Mansion, is 24 hours.

  • So much for getting a new event for Antman. Just more of the same?

    The new event is running concurrently. See this thread:

    I'm a noob. I thought the Antman cover was Ultron.
  • I'm going to be letting this one slide until the last day or so.

    And are they only releasing 4*s now? I'm getting sick of 4*s. My least-covered 3* at this point has 10 covers, which is ridiculous.

    Couldn't say. I'm not a fan of the spoiler thread, so I tend to avoid it unless somebody gets really snotty about my ignorance of its contents.
  • As a 2* player:

    All three parts of thormneto are boosted? ... Goodbye, reasonable PVE scaling.

    with the vault and movie tie in events, now they're free to make as many 4* as there are 3* *shudder*

    Community scaling is dead, so you should only be affected by your own performance.

    Also, in 2* land, Captain America is one of the kings of survival nodes.

    Was thinking the same thing. Literally any new character is deemed a star.pngstar.pngstar.pngstar.png is pretty ridiculous. No offence to icon_antman.png but I see him as a star.pngstar.pngstar.png character, cuz if/when they release Thanos, it looks fairly odd that he's just as rare as icon_antman.png (argument can be made about icon_elektra.png & icon_kingpin.png too)

    if that is truly their vision, I think it would have a lot more support in the community if they addressed iso shortage/costs more than they have. now it is really simple to get your *** guys up to 120 but my goodness ****s get expensive and I haven't even started mine yet. any/all of these could address the iso issue for ****s:
    * LRs all week
    * slight reduction in leveling costs at the higher levels
    * reduction of raw iso costs for those who purchase iso - more would consider if it didn't cost so dang much
    * double iso event(s)
    * increase of base iso award from 20 to ~50

    any/all of these would help tremendously. it seems their long-term vision is in **** land, but good luck to the noob getting there when leveling a **** to 220 costs a quarter mil.

    I doubt we will be able to play Thanos. Ever. He is so powerful that any version of him as a 4* wouldn't do him justice. My guess is he will be released only as an enemy boss, like Ultron. If they introduce him as a playable character, then he will be the first 5* which will probably be the new star rarity debut. After all, by then, the 3* characters will be the new 2*.

    I'll wait until the last 2 days of the event before I join. It is a risk, but there is no way I am playing 8-hour refreshes for 7 days.

    I'm hoping that we get a playable Apocalypse for next year's X-Men movie. I could see him as a 5*, but would settle for a playable 4*.

    Just a friendly warning, I was of the same mind for the 1st carnage pve (also a 7dayer) and the last fresh bracket was 4 days before the close of the event and in the end I missed out completely.

    great point. i remember that one. still climbed to t50 but it was a chore after joining ~18 hrs after it flipped after i realized that waiting wasn't going to work - they were climbing so slow. still, sitting this one out until Monday. i'll trade 3 days of grinding to risk not getting him. i just can't continuously grind pve any more.

    Same with me, but at this point, I'd rather miss it than grind seven days for a 4*. That's kind of where I've gotten in the game.

    Say it with me - rarity does not equal power level. We can get 15* agent coulson, D3 doesn't give a kitty

    Except that you actually have something called "Level" and 4* start and end at much higher levels than anyone else.

    yet for 4* levels mean almost nothing. It's almost a Buddhist proverb.

    The character's strength in the comics didn't matter from 1* to 2*. It didn't matter from 2* to 3*. So now it is supposed to matter from 3* to 4*?

    At the end of the day it doesn't matter anyways since any character can beat any other character.

    True, kinda like icon_wolverine.png can beat icon_magneto.png
