    Question on "charges and destroys the entire row, dealing massive damage and gaining triple AP."

    Charged tiles already yield 3xap, does this ability triple that for 9xap/tile?

    Nova is a great choice for progression rewards, definitely more enticing than Antman. And very happy to finish off my hawk guy with that purple cover. 

    Overall, oolong forward to this event.

    "Weekly 5* boosted"?!?

    Glad to see the whales weren't benefited enough elsewhere.

    How many turns is the purple countdown tile active?

    5* boosted weekly?  Is this new?  Will this continue?  Will this be for PVP as well if 5* are boosted or just this event?  To top it off OML is boosted....

    Very important question - will Boss Thanos be fixed levels or scaled to your team?

    Right, because scaling isn't bad enough?

    I'm betting the "weekly" in that section is erroneous.  Those aren't even the weekly boosts for this week or next week.  It should say "event" and they just copy/pasted the weekly list for formatting and forgot to replace that word.

    Yes I think those are going to be some of the required characters for the pins,  Most of the Spider-men are there and the Wolverines, just missing 3star Hawkguy, so maybe this is listing that you can use whatever version you have (including the 5 star version) for certain character pins, but I agree I found it a little unclear.

    Can Thanos be sent airborne?

    So Antman is a boosted weekly 4* and he's boosted for the event?

    What's the point in double dipping like that?

    Instead, cant we get a 4* that isnt already boosted for the week?
  • matthattermatthatter Posts: 151 Tile Toppler
    Gotta say, that Gauntlet tile is a bit intimidating. Kinda hard to get match 4s lined up perfectly. However those infinity gems on the other hand look to more than make up for the massive damage. Which one is the purple one?

    The weekly boosted characters aren't boosted for boss events, the event has it's own boost list.  Anyone not listed above is not going to be boosted.

    Soul Gem: Destroy all Green tiles, dealing damage but not generating AP

    Besides the fact that Mohawk is conveniently boosted this event, this Gem ensures that we cannot utilize the Hulk/Mohawk strategy for this boss.

    @Brigby Can you confirm it's the 2* Hawkeye (modern) at 395,500 and not the 3* hawk guy cover? It seems like a typo at 395,500. I can't see why it would be with almost double the points of the 2* for another 2*.

    Thanks!

    Powered-Up Event Characters
    • Featured: Ant Man (Scott Lang), Storm (Mohawk), Captain Marvel (Ms. Marvel)
    • New Character: Star-Lord (Awesome Mix Volume 2), Cloak & Dagger (Classic), Star-Lord (Peter Quill)
    • Weekly:
      • 5-Star - Hawkeye (Clint Barton), Spider-Man (Back in Black), Wolverine (Old Man Logan)
      • 4-Star - Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Drax (The Destroyer), Star-Lord (Legendary Outlaw), Wolverine (X-Force)
      • 3-Star - Gamora (Guardians of the Galaxy), Rocket & Groot (Most Wanted), Spider-Man (Classic), Wolverine (Patch),
      • 2-Star - Hawkeye (Modern), Spider-Man (Bag-Man), Wolverine (Astonishing X-Men)
      • 1-Star - Hawkeye (Classic), Hawkeye (Original)
    First, you've got Hawkeye twice in the 1-star area.

    Second, the "Weekly" list needs to be renamed. The WEEKLY boosted list is:
    • 4-Star: Iceman, Invisible Woman, Iron Fist (Danny Rand), Iron Man (Hulkbuster), The Punisher (MAX)
    • 3-Star: Beast, Black Panther (T'Challa), Bullseye (Classic), Sam Wilson (Falcon), Kamala Khan
    • Hawkeye (Modern), Moonstone
    • Black Widow (Modern), Storm (Modern)
    If Boss Events are subject to the Weekly boosted list, why aren't these characters on it? If Boss events are not subject to the Weekly boosted list, then something should change. You can't say Hawkeye (Clint Barton) is "Weekly" boosted for Thanos's boss event, but not for the rest of the Story/PVP events of the week. (it's equally as frustrating to say "Hulkbuster is boosted this Week, except for the Boss event that will be the most significant thing going on)

    Both of them say "Weekly", but neither of them are accurate descriptions, because one is Boss-only, and one is excluded from the Boss list for... seemingly no reason. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the existing Guardians are boosted for the Thanos event, but if Boss events aren't going to obey Weekly boosted rules, it should be spelled out more clearly. Just a note that says "Boss Events feature unique groups of Powered-Up characters that don't follow traditional weekly lists" and renaming the Boss "Weekly" group to something like "Event Special" or something.
