    So out of the 240 item vault, are 200 of them 2 star covers?
    Yes, there are 2-star covers. No, it is nowhere near 200.
    +-50%?

    2nd vote on easier way to see which supports attached to which character. Placement? Yay?

    Great job team. Having access to a part of the game that we haven’t had for months without bundles is great news and I for one am glad supports are still coming out.

    Thanks for the communication @Brigby and @IceIX. Much appreciated!

    With supports becoming more readily available, I'm among those hoping for a change that makes it easier to see which supports are equipped to which characters.

    With the circuit PVE be like current PVE where you need to clear each node 4 times before the timer goes down and 6 times total to get green check marks so basically he way a PVE sub works now?  Also will their be slices like PVE or just 24 hours like DPDQ?

    Regarding this statement:
    Like any Stockpiled tokens, players can still redeem unopened Vault tokens after the 4 week period ends, but those tokens will not carry over to the next Support Circuit vault.

    Can you clarify if it means unopened Vault tokens will be forfeited when the next Support Circuit vault opens or they will remain in your pile forever (just not carried over)? IOW, you could have unopened Vault tokens hoarded for Support Circuit vault 1, 2, 3, etc.

    For the 24 hour PVE

    Will there be time slices?  Clearance levels?

    Will any stored tokens change in any way in the foreseeable future?  To reward a rank 4 Support from the Beginner tokens I have saved?  Or will they be exactly the same except for the lower riso from dupes?
    It says those tokens will remain attached to the current limited store rather than upgraded to the new store.  So it is probably best to open any stockpiled  tokens before the duplicate sell-back prices drop.

    Interesting questions.  Would be nice to have seven slices so you could choose whether to stagger or stack with regular PVE.

    New Event - Support Circuit

    Will the enemy teams have Supports attached to them?

    New Supports-Focused Vault

    30/240 items are Supports or Support Tokens. This represents a 100% increase in support availability in the vault. 1/8 represents 12.5%.  :D

    Adjusting Supports Store Odds 

    Master Support received a nerf. It was a guaranteed Rank 4 and now it's a guaranteed Rank 3 or better. The interesting thing are the odds. What are those odds?

    Will the normal pve vaults still have Beginner tokens in them?  And will those tokens pull from the standard 18, the Focused 16, or all 42 Supports?

    The good news is build more events that cater to the quirks in supports.  Supports have weird modifiers that are over powered and inappropriate for pvp style play.  So it makes sense to have a new game "circuit" that caters to those differences.  I hope that these support events have a "STRONGER" puzzle focus vs  speed over defeat overwhelming health.

    Its in these "support" events that we should encounter snowball CDs and geyser Cds etc...

    Something needs to be done about existing support token hoards.  People have built up sizable hoards of tokens, for the simple fact they already have the underlying support.  Are you really just saying those tokens are gonna be orphaned and converted to RISO?  I suppose it is what it is, an honest translation of current worth, but it doesn't seem very player friendly at all.

    With all the recently released supports, a rank 4 is essentially just a rank 3 with a 33% higher level cap. So it isn't quite as big a difference as for e.g. character ranks.
    It'll be interesting to see what the overall chance of receiving rank 5 supports is with all the changes: both increased availability of advanced and master tokens, combined with the reduced odds from master tokens.

    Well this is what what people have been asking for (sort of): more and better ways to get supports.   For that, I'm happy, really.  The new 'support circuit' sounds interesting, and rotating stores and vaults that are always available seem good too.  
    The one that made me go "hmmmmm...."   is this bit:
    "New Supports Circuit Vault". While this Vault does contain covers and Iso-8, it is primarily focused on Supports, with 6 Supports and 24 Support Tokens for players to earn [...]
    • 240 Item Vault, Resettable

    So, the vault that is "primarily focused on supports" only consists of 1.25% supports.   That's.... less exciting.

    Edit:  actually 12.5%!    Derp.   Thanks for checking my math Spatenfloot.

    So I have 42 support tokens, 3 wakanda supports tokens, and 5 was gauntlet support tokens the only difference between pulling now and later would be the dupe red iso proces, is that correct

    Been asked already by someone else but what will the times be for this PVE ?

     I am assuming it will be like most PVE with clearance levels?
