    Peggy boosted for Gauntlet. Alright!

    Gauntlet being live through the weekend is precisely what I want. I really don't like worrying about timers during the weekend, I love how the Gauntlet is something you can do at your own pace.

    I have a quick question for Brigby. I have only noticed now that Strange Sights will end on 02/15 and that the gauntlet will start on 02/16. So will we have a day without PvE? It could be pleasant to have no PvE for one day.

    With all due respect, I'm afraid you might be mistaken. Strange Sights is supposed to end on 02/16. Looking at the Event right now in-game, I see that the time left says "2d 12h".

    My bad. Mine says 1 d and 17h left and it will end on 02/16 on early morning for you. Thanks.

    With Gauntlet coming up, please please tell us you have adjusted the reward structure to be at least a bit worth it.

    It is by far the very worst event rewards wise. Losing out on thousands and thousands of ISO, hundreds of HP, multiple covers and not to mention, a boat load of CP, is an awful premise for an event.

    (And those that like it because you can play at your own pace for progression, you can already do that in the normal PVE for better rewards at lower difficulty)

    yup.

    no scl, no daily sub awards, no alliance sub awards, no alliance placement awards, no 25 cp in progression. one 4* is the big prize which is likely a champ level for most vets. this event is for 2-3 star transitioners. please update gauntlet awards, its a huge waste of time.

    if the pvp matchmaking event is the 2 vs 2, please understand that the vast majority of the playerbase really REALLY dislikes that event. it concentrates the damage to less characters and by not having a 3, all abilities are strong ones. lots of health packs and somewhat a slow slog.

    I think you're forgetting one major thing. 500 ISO for the first clear of every node.

    It's either Deadpool version + 2 others.

    that is much better. still a very wonky node setup, but better than 2 on 2.

    That's 21k iso over a 3 day event, that's less than 1 day farming a standard pve

    If you actually farmed them like you farm standard PVE, I believe it's either 750 or 850 per node.

    Oh lordy...gauntlet for the Quake cover?

    You guys keep tormenting me. First the last Ghost Rider cover I needed didn't show up as progression because of the Boss Rush event, now I need my final Quake cover and I've got to beat the entire gauntlet to get it!

    Assuming of course you're not even bigger meanie heads and use her blue cover 8I

    Will it be like that? Gauntlet usually gives the character you need for the next event rather than the required Legendary.

    Yes, I am afraid there might not be a Quake cover at all in the Gauntlet.

    How appropriate that I won't have to play much MPQ when Pokemon Go is rumored to be releasing generation 2. I may have some hunting to do this weekend.

    You play Go? But how do you survive the sunlight, muggers, wild animals, and high-speed traffic?

    Also, isn't 500 a node equal to 30k once the 18 essentials are factored in?

    Brigby Can you confirm or deny that the extra CP rewards will stay or go in the next PVP?
