    Updated Google Doc - It should be pretty close on order and projections, although Okoye and Cap seemed to have switched.

    Yeah, looks like the pattern was broken. Guess we'll see how predictable it will be down the road.

    Need to do a lot more classics. 1 or 2 is not enough. Should at least be 3 classics before going back to latest.

    Also included a list of how many times a 5 Star was essential and when last used.

    With the Classic cycle reset again, I figured it would be interesting to take a look at when the various Classic fivestars were last featured as Essentials.

    Deadpool Vs. MPQ (3/18/18) - 5-Star: Silver Surfer  

    Simulator (3/22/18) - 5-Star: Doctor Octopus (Classic)

    Thick as Thieves (3/25/18) - 5-Star: Thor (Gladiator)   

    Meet Rocket & Groot - 4 Day Variant (4/8/18) - 5-Star: Black Bolt   

    Fight for Wakanda (4/12/18) - 5-Star: Green Goblin

    Webbed Wonder (4/22/18) - 5-Star: Archangel

    Honor Among Thieves 4-Day Variant (4/29/18) - 5-Star: Star-Lord (Awesome Mix Volume 2)

    Strange Sights (5/3/18) - 5-Star: Iron Man (Mark XLVI)   

    Fight for Wakanda (5/13/18) - 5-Star: Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)

    Venom Bomb (5/20/18) - 5-Star: Spider-Man (Peter Parker)   

    Meet Rocket & Groot (5/24/18) - 5-Star: Hawkeye (Clint Barton)   

    Hearts of Darkness (6/10/18) - 5-Star: Spider-Man (Back in Black)   

    Strange Sights (7/5/18) - 5-Star: The Hulk (Bruce Banner)

    Venom Bomb (7/8/18) - 5-Star: Daredevil (Matt Murdock)   

    Meet Rocket & Groot (7/15/18) - 5-Star: Jessica Jones

    The Hunt (7/26/18) - 3 Day Variant - 5-Star: Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme)   

    Thick as Thieves (8/12/18) - 5-Star: Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff)

    Webbed Wonder (8/20/18) - 5-Star: Captain America (Infinity War)   

    The Hunt - 4 Day Variant (8/26/18) - 5-Star: Wolverine (Old Man Logan)

    Meet Rocket & Groot - 4 Day Variant (9/2/18) - 5-Star: Captain America (First Avenger)   

    Unstable ISO-8 - 3 Day Variant (9/23/18) - 5-star: Gambit

    Thick as Thieves (9/27/18) - 5-star: Black Panther

    Webbed Wonder - 4 day variant (10/7/18) - 5-star: Okoye

    Places of Power (10/11/18) - 5-star: Thanos


    Silver Surfer was already reprised, so the next two up should be Doc Ock and Thor, next two after that should be Black Bolt and Green Goblin and so on.

    It's Worth noticing that Black Widow was featured twice in this period, once in regular rotation and once as part of the MCU 10th anniversary celebrations. I am assuming she will be featured in the next cycle too (Star-Lord has been featured Three times too and wasn't skipped last cycle). She could pop up earlier than listed based on her first appearance rather than the out-of-turn one though.

    So we've recently had Classics:

    Doc Ock - Meet R&G - Nov 1

    Thor - Sim - Nov 5

    BB - EotS - Nov 22

    GG - DPvMPQ - Dec 2

    Doc Ock - Sinister 600 - Dec 13 - added in due to rework

    Thor - HoD - Dec 20

    Looks like they perhaps messed up re-featuring Thor again so early, like they reset the list to Doc Ock, instead of just inserting him.  Should in theory be Archangel based upon prior post listing.  Not that I complain too much about Thor being featured, but got a 13 cover Angel to champ when he's featured.

    Probably like with anniversary, they abbandoned the list for holiday season?

    Isn't an Angel (arch or not) more Christmassy than Thor?  I guess Thor is the son of a God...

    Other option would be the Holy Ghost Rider

    Only the Devs know for sure. And possibly The Shadow, altho I'm pretty sure that the evil in the hearts of men is easier to learn than Demiurge's future plans.

    My list above is a decent Place to start. The order is that they do the Three fivestars that are available in Latest Legends (currently Kitty Pryde, Cable and Kingpin - they are the 500 CP ones), and then two that are available in Classic Legends (the 250 CP ones). The Classics seem to be in order after when they were most recently run, so future runs should have:

    Iron Man (Mark XLVI)   

    Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)

     

    Spider-Man (Peter Parker)   

    Hawkeye (Clint Barton)   


    Spider-Man (Back in Black)   

    The Hulk (Bruce Banner)

     

    Daredevil (Matt Murdock)   

    Jessica Jones

     

    Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme)   

    Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff)

     

    Captain America (Infinity War)   

    Wolverine (Old Man Logan)

     

    Captain America (First Avenger)   

    Gambit


    Black Panther

    Okoye


    Thanos

    Silver Surfer


    Sometimes they do a fivestar essential that breaks the pattern though. This is just an educated Death.

    Thank you so much

    @Quebbster has your expected pattern been holding up?  I've been collating the history of these, but I keep getting thrown off by them breaking the pattern (eg for marvel 10 years, reworks, costumes etc).

    Do you have a feel for whether these set a new pattern, or whether it reverts to the old pattern for the next cycle?

    If I felt like a gamblin' man, I would share my best guess (assuming there is a "regular" cycle that gets temporarily disrupted, and LL characters get slotted in as per their last appearance in LL):
     

    Silver Surfer
    Wasp
    Doctor Octopus
    Thor
    Black Bolt
    Green Goblin
    Loki
    Archangel
    Star Lord
    Iron Man XLVI
    Ghost Rider
    Kitty Pryde
    Spider-Man Peter Parker
    Hawkeye
    Okoye ???
    Spider-Man Back In Black
    Daredevil
    Cable
    Black Widow
    The Hulk
    Kingpin
    Doctor Strange
    Jean Grey
    Captain America (Infinity War)
    Doctor Doom
    Wolverine
    Jessica Jones
    Captain Marvel
    Captain America (First Avenger)
    Gambit
    Black Panther
    Okoye ???
    Thanos
