    There's sound in this game?!?!?!
    It's tiresome whenever people rehash this "joke".
    I have never had the sound turned on for this or any other mobile game, and I honestly had the same (100% not a joke) reaction.

    Use Shang-Chi with the sound on at least once. It is delightful.

    It's more tiresome whenever people feel the need to put down someone's comment (which may not have even been a joke, btw) rather than just move along.

    Don't people think you're weird when they hear loud martial arts noises coming out of the bathroom stall you're in?

    I will try to remember to try out that someday. 
    If I played my 2 mobile games with music and sound I would think I was playing 2 brand new games for sure.

    I pulled 2x40s and 1x10 and whatever 1x tokens I have earned.  

    Wheel eludes me still.  :(

    The odds of pulling a five-star in those stores are horrible.

    It seems you can go two distinct routes with BW. Either you pair him with a tank and someone to feed his points or you create a glass cannon. In the glass cannon you have a character like shang chi who's a hybrid damage and board shaker who you can also add in some sort of damage booster character like Chavez. 

    The other way to do this is a glass cannon with two characters focused solely on feeding BW. If you can produce 8-10 speed points a turn for a few turns it'll be an easy win. This doesn't even take into account if you have his accomplices providing some sort shielding or healing allowing you to even outlast stronger defensive teams.

    He's really good.  It's a lot easier to rack up speed points than I thought it would be, even without Shang-Chi doing his thing.  *With* Shang-Chi doing his thing, it's crazy.

    I'm not sure I'd swap him in for either guy in Spin Cycle, but there is a very strong team that's Shang-Chi/Big Wheel/... somebody.  I don't know who the somebody is yet!

    I got things going pretty fast with Valk. Once you make a red match, Shang and Big Wheel both start getting points quickly.
    I was less impressed by 5witch. Quake was okayish, but not dropping points on SC was not too easy.
    Sersi may have a spot here, but I do not have enough powers to even test it out.

    I think the intended third is Sersi though Onslaught and Sighclops should do well too. There are probably others.

    You know what. I logged into my Alt account to do pvp yesterday and saw I had enough CP for a LL pull. Just before I clicked it, I found out I had a few single pull tokens for big wheel handed out from a recently ended event.

    No word of a lie, pulled him on the first single token. I was dumbfounded by the good luck. That same account got 500 5star bonus shards off a LL lastweek and it's INSANE luck right now. 

    1:250 odds for Wheel.

    and IDK what the odds are of getting 500 5star bonus shards, but it must be less than 1%.  @megabee

    The Hulk ME could be a good option with SC and Big Wheel. I got the idea from someone but I can't remember.

    I actually do really like his "spin out" animation. He seems as if he will take a bit of practice to get the best out of him but he is definitely different.
    Also for some reason I now have the wish that we could have a Big Wheel/Wacky Races crossover.
    Obviously you weren't comparing, but it's hard to imagine a character that demands more practice than Shang-Chi.
    But as to BW, I agree -- a lot of practice, and I think there will be specialists using him in PvP. There are interesting synergies with Onslaught and Prof. $. But potentially scary outcomes facing 5witch with that kind of team...

    Oh, the puns. BW is just an overall good time. I like him, but I don't like his Green and Red as much as I thought I would. Nonetheless, he is good. That Blue when he hits 10 speed points is great.

    It got me thinking, though. How many players plan on running Okoye with him? She would make a great meat shield due to her healing. My Okoye is weak so I don't know how good her boost is for BW's powers.

    How many people have an okoye who can actually tank for big wheel? Okoye is not quite as devastating a character when she doesn't tank 4+ colors (hence the number of people who invested in getting her to 500+). Seems like Shang chi, who has modern match damage (pre boost), and synergizes well with big wheel, is a better choice for those who want a true healing tank for the wheel to hide behind.  (for those who have the option to do both).

    After recording and watching closely, BW always rotates 90 ° clockwise.
    On his green power, i.e, if there is this pattern:
    Blue  (x)  Green   Tu
    Red    (x) Yellow    Tu
    Black   (x) Green  Red
    It will change to:

    Black (x) Red  Blue
    Green (x) Yellow   Green
    Red  (x) Tu   Tu
    Where all previous files will become a column, and the opposite.
    His red power is a lot easier to figure it out and it works the same.
    And his blue passive rotates the board in the same way.
