          I like the way you're now including rewards in the PVP events.

          And can we have an icon for Riri please.

          Civil war isn't exactly new, it's been run three times before. The most recent run was when they introduced the 'Mystery Boost'.

          I am less than happy with the timing of this Civil War run. The patch preview was a big hint that BP was coming and with it a run of Civil War, but I was really hoping it would start next Thursday at the start of next season (or even delaying the start of the season by a week) as opposed to starting this Thursday with the end of season looming. I know we always complain about these timing things like new releases on holidays, and they always say they can't take those things into account when making the schedule, but this one is completely internal to the game and seems like it could be easily avoided. Just my 2 cents on the matter.

          If not for the timing I would be super excited by this. Boss events are always fun and offer some pretty decent rewards. Throw in a new 5* and it's a winning formula.

          boo for MK, nova, and quake. offseason boosts wastes good talent, and a lot of it this time. I even like drax too - all 4 of them. blade too new.

          Except you can join the boss event, get locked in with that alliance for the event, and then do whatever the hell you want for PVP without having to worry about sub events or anything. Running a Boss event is literally the best thing they can do because it can't possibly interfere with season ending.

          For some people the boss event makes things easier, but for others harder. Later rounds scale up so you're using many health packs every 8 hours. If you also have to climb in shield simulator and the final PvP of the season, this can be very burdensome on your health packs and your time. I'd rather be able to just do a normal PvE where the first 4 clears don't use any health packs (or just 1 or 2) and still leave me plenty of time to do shield sim and PvP, or even ignore it completely if I'm short on time. I don't have that luxury in a Boss event where my whole team is counting on me hitting as many clears as I can over the course of the event to maximize rewards.

          So should we start wildly speculating on 4* rewards for Civil War progression?

          I'd love to see Medusa and Captain Marvel, personally.

          For those alliances doing the double run, timing this with the end of the season is tough as these alliances tend to have a very heavy pvp presence.
          You need everyone playing pretty much perfectly to finish both sides which is really heavy on resources especially towards the end of the event.

          How many alliances finished last time?
          someone necro the thread

          edit: looks like about 20 posted they finished

          I love Civil War Boss event, but the timing again is quite unfortunate. My alliance won't be affected because we won't be able to be top100 this season, but I can see how some other can be quite affected. Devs should be more careful and never overlap Boss events with the end of a Season.

          Regarding prices, I hope Carol is the reward in one of the sides. I guess if we consider CWII, Carol (Cap) and Riri (IM) are probably the best thematic rewards possible.

          I assume Black Panther will be a prize somehow, but if there's room for other fourstar rewards this would be awesome.
          Well, Carol covers would be awesome. Riri would be OK, I guess.
        • carol and riri are both team im but they seem really new for giving rewards. possibly power man or spider woman on team cap side. medusa doesnt fit on either side.

          as to 5* bp were probably just getting token draws.

          Has there been confirmation about Black Panther's rarity? I know people assume he will be a five-star since we are about due for Another fivestar and the MCU heroes tend to get fivestar versions, but on the other hand it seems unlikely we'd get Another Three-star Black Panther. In short, I could just as easily see him as a fourstar as a fivestar. They might save a fivestar version until his Movie is released next year.

          I'd say that the fact that they're using a Boss event to introduce him increases the chance he'll be a 5*, but I wouldn't call it a certainty. They like introducing the 5*s in special events lately, which is cool since we get a chance or two at them before they enter the tokens.

          I agree with that, but I'm not closing the door on the 4* possibility. We'll see in due time.

          If past Boss events for new 5s is an indication (except first CW) we will get a 4 cover for rounds 5, 6, 7 and then an LT for the store of the new 5 in the final round. I expect the same structure reward here.

          And yeah he is a 5, MCU version, presented with Boss event, around 45 days since last 5, etc. everything points to BP being a 5. At this point I am 100% sure.
