    Having Kitty and Nico boosted at the same time feels almost like cheating. I think my record so far is something like 54k worth of Strike tiles before everyone on the other side falls over, but it's probably higher, because there have been a lot of matches ended by the Milano countdown or Circuit Breaker, so I didn't get to check after the last round of buffing.
    Got up to 80k by the end of the Wave node on final scaling.
    But my true best moment was the return of the holiday loading screen. The yearbook thing was getting old, and I love the snow falling on the holiday one.

    Thanks to shards, I have all of the 4* characters (aside from the three limited, Rahne and M.O.D.O.K.) now at 13 covers. Yes, all of them. Including Talos. My Talos build when I chased him with shards was a 4/3/4, so I just put the 400 shards into that middle slot, and boom - 4/4/4. Drew a Talos in covers the day after I had that 4/4/4 build, so he now has 13 covers. He may be the last character I ever decide to champ in the 4-star realm, but at this moment, he can be champed...

    I had a nice little token chain today. Two heroics from a lightning round got me a couple 2*s, then one of those got me another heroic which was a 4* Blade which gave a legendary and then with that I got a 5* Prof X. I usually get t25 in lightning rounds but was a bit bummed to get pushed out in the final minutes. But, hey, can't complain for getting two 2*s, a 4* and a 5* from t50 in a lightning round.

    I'm only playing for Progression in Sim, so I took my time and did the 5E with Hawkeye, HammerCap, and Coulson. Not fast, but that is a pretty fun team, even with my Hawkeye just a 3/1/1.

    I never post in here.  I just dont think to do it.  But here we go.

    In Shield Sim, i just got done beating a champed Gritty-Juggs team...
    ...using only 4*s...
    ...and no Whales team up...
    ...and not a single character died on my team.

    Bishop, Quake, Nightcrawler
    (Bishop yellow at 3, Quake green at 3, Nightcrawler blue at 3)

    Bishop takes the hit as always... But NC takes nothing from any Juggs hit, and quake makes it so that its almost void the first two rounds.  Bishop is mainly only taking match damage for a couple turns.

    Each turn, use Quake blue to eliminate the color that has the most enemy strikes on it.  Try to avoid targetting purples if you can.

    After 2 or 3 turns of this, use any quake blue if necessary to make sure the board is purple heavy.

    By this point, youve shouldve gained a bit of purple from cascades or matches.  Enough at least for one Bamf.  And now its win-finite time!

    Use quake blue here and there in order to trim other colors down if need be, but in the end, its just Bamf for days, throwing out a NC red here and there for fun.

    Maybe it was luck... But i couldnt help but try my hand at an idea once the gears started turning.

    This team single-handedly got me to the 4* cover in Simulator over the weekend!
    It worked so well I couldn't stop until I reached the end. I played 9 consecutive battles executing them exactly the way you prescribed it and it worked flawlessly. I was 9-0 in those battles, earned over 400 points (some of those JugGritty teams have juicy points values!) and jumped from my float point to 2,000. I even only had to use 6 health-packs (all on Bishop, of course) along the way.

    Afterwards, I threw out a Grittydusa team to put a better team out for defense/scarecrow, but at that point I didn't really care, my placement was already pretty much set.

    Thank you for sharing this team! It was not "just luck", it's "just genius". 

    PS: One slight addition to the strategy, once you've successfully flipped the board to massive amounts of purple and are simply win-finite Bamfing their brains out, eventually (usually through match-4s) you will get enough blue to fire Bishop's stun. Stun Juggs and the Bamfing will be much more effective against him since it negates his passive match damage reduction.

    Very cool to hear that it worked so well for someone else!

    And yes, that Bishop stun on Juggs does the job.  Although i'll admit, i used the Quake greens to hit him, since i knew the board wouldnt make matches after the shuffle, and my BAMF color would be preserved.

    Just reading that this worked for others is my new  "moment of the day".  :)

    I got ten five star covers from the Champion Rewards Update, which meant I was able to champ Storm and Banner. For a player who has only ever spent £23 on the game, I now have seven five star champions, which I think is pretty decent :-)

    Had enough CP for 9 pulls in the Valiant 5* release store. While I usually only pull Classics, I decided to go for it - why not?
    9 Pulls = Five 4*s + 2 Helas, 1 Thor (green, nonetheless), and 1 BRB!
    Had 20 CP left over... that sounds like a Classic to me, feeling lucky...
    ... 5torm!
    10 pulls yielded Five 5* covers!
    That hereby consumes all of my RNG good luck for quite some time.

    PS: One of those 4*s also got me the exact cover I needed to champ Domino (who I have been wanting to finish for quite some time), meaning I can now skip her on my shargetting list and move straight to Wolfsbane next.

    I managed to pull another Iceman yellow. Even if I don't pull another before he leaves, 7 more levels on his 4* will be the first time I've managed to champ a full set of Latest.

    Got the new 5* from a single LT. That's luck, right?

    I got 673 rewards today which allowed me to champion Professor X and Bruce Banner.  :)

    This isn't so much "best" moment as "enjoyable thing that happened" moment. So, I'm currently just fooling around in Sim with teams like Miles + lvl 209 Infinity Spidey + lvl 70 1/3/2 Mysterio. Or C&D + lvl 209 Mordo + lvl 100 3/4/4 Domino.
    Synergy and already a lot of fun to run even with parts of the teams unchamped/underleveled, but obviously not meta or very difficult to kill for 4* top tiers.
    Obviously, people hit me back. Sometimes it's Kittys or GRocket variants (or the new Gritty/Juggs) or C4rol or Medusa teams, sometimes it's 3* players with Strange, Iron Fist and such.
    But. Today I've had a War Machine/Nick Fury/Luke C4ge retal. I checked the roster, saw that they had a champed C4rol and realised that person must be doing what I'm doing-- specifically taking the opportunity to run non-meta characters. Couldn't go super low tier because most of my teams like that are spam-y in nature which is obviously a bad idea against C4ge. But I responded with Quake/Ghost/Yondu and hope we might get a spontanous retal party going here, haha. Thanks for playing non-meta off-the-wall teams with me, Person-whose-ingame-name-I-forgot-to-check.

    First ever shield training I've got the 4* within an hour.

    Managed to take D3adpool from 0->300 shards in a single day after selling a max champ yesterday with no backfill. Got that 2cp from the burrito lol

    I love that stuff. Usually doesn't last long for me though because then the other person goes back to running their more powerful meta team to get an easy win.

     First taco token of the day got me 1,000 hp. :)
