    Amazon appstore update changed the icon.  It shows Torch, a new Doom, and Namor.

    Oh. Okay then. Well, I’ll be disappointed if it’s Doom on Thursday instead of Namor. Reasons: having only the 3* version for years, Doom, one of the most dangerous [Earth]. Villains in MCU who has actually had the power of a god really deserves that 5* spot. Human Torch required and should bring in Namor like in comics, as mentioned in prior posts. I kind of got bored with Namor, so I’d prefer him as 4* and not worry about him unless required.
    EDIT: And there’s the iOS update live. So just F4 week and not a new Torch, right?

    That boost list for Stretch Goals...

    Oh, might throw in my Vulture for the week. At almost 340 unboosted, he’s pretty dangerous. Also, placement is Domino for UISO-8? That looks like a release delay, and at the end of a season with a Limited 4 and a 5. Pig in Shield Sim next season, even though he won’t be in tokens? Looking forward to more info please.

    A delay in new character releases = more time for Kitty to stick around in LL tokens. Love it!

    Marvel.com livestream said we're getting PVP events for all four F4 members, guess IW and Torch will be our off-season events. MPQ really didn't have a lot going on in that stream, but we're also like the only game that already had Fantastic Four members, so adding them (and Doom) to other games is a bigger deal, since they're new there, but have been here for years.

    Unstable ISO ending an hour Before the season does? Difficult decisions ahead for top Alliances then.

    @Brigby shouldn’t there be a new release character this week?  The week of Christmas we got spider ham, no character for New Years and now no new character this week but 2 new characters announced.
    if the new character is next week are the devs planning on going back to back weeks of new releases or are they going to go every other week after the next new release?

    Curious to hear about the character releases, since... you know, we should be getting one this Thursday. They sometimes take weeks off, and sometimes do two back to back (usually good for a 5* and a 4*), so it's "every 2 weeks, most of the time." But still, it'd be nice to have something a tiny bit more concrete. Kinda want to see how they plan to juggle the 5/4/4 pattern (that they usually stick to) with the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.
    Due to the holiday season messing with the release schedule a bit, the next character will be released next week, as opposed to this week.

    Otherwise it would have been only 1,5 week in between releases. So as before Porky, we get 2,5 weeks in between releases.. Extra week of Kitty in latest!!!!!

    Is there a pattern to the featured 4* placement to progression cover color? I need a green Domino to finish her up, and I can't tell from the placement rewards in unstable iso-8 what the subsequent event is going to give out

    It's typically the middle placement award, so it should be green.

    Spider-Ham's release event started on the 24th December.  If we had the next new release over this weekend, then it would have been 17 days between releases.  With the new release next weekend, it's a 3.5 week gap.
    [not that I'm complaining: it's given me some time to catch up with champing some of my other characters at 13 covers]

    I was looking at the release schedule.  Kitty was a 9/20 release, entering tokens on 10/8/18.  The normal release schedule (4/4/5) means 6 weeks between 5's, or 18 weeks in Latest.  Feb 11, 2019 will be 18 weeks from Kitty entering tokens.

    So, if a new 5 releases next Thursday, 1/17/19, they would enter tokens 2/4/19 (a week less than most 5's for Kitty that way).  If the 5 comes two weeks later, 1/31/19, then they should enter tokens 2/18/19.  That would mean an extra week for her.  Time will tell.....

    Any way to tell whose PVP is up next between Torch or Sue? Or I guess Doom? Trying to decide where to throw this iso between Sue and Reed (whose PvP is nearly over). I’m betting it won’t be Sue since she isn’t the 4* placement reward from Stretch Goals

    Neither is HT the 3* in placement. Based on the dates Marvel.com provided when they said we were getting all four F4 PVP events, I think there's one before Torch/Sue.

    Wishful thinking, since that Marvel.com article said "For the first time, all four Fantastic Four characters will be able to square off against God Emperor Doom and Victorious." in the MPQ section, maybe an off-season "4-person" PVP event to test the mechanic of letting us have one more character in a fight?
