Well I got 3 5*s for my 11 pulls, which is actually fitting in with the 1/4 rate...unfortunately, one of them was a OML black, and it sounds like they're only doing cover swaps for gambit >.>

That makes me feel less stupid for rostering the Phoenix I pulled as a dupe instead of asking for a swap.

hodayathink has made a decent case for champing, and thus despite never planning to champ him.

if with double iso I get enough iso to finish off grocket4 and x23 (level 215 and 200) and get the iso to champ devil, I very well might since I will likely have like 8 covers to apply.

plus even though as annoying as it is that they nerfed him... his arms are still funny.

edit:

LOL!
the AI with prof x in the DDQ just managed to do 6 straight 5 matches and kill off hood and then get my champed gwenpool half dead... then took another turn and used the AP with thor to get another 3 straight 5 matches to murderize me.

Eh, I think that case only makes sense if you're going to break the HP bank to clear it out a few times. Personally, I'm going to continue saving for the rare chance one of those 80 item vaults has a 4* cover I actually need

I already have 3 dino covers and will get another from the dino shield sim. so who knows.

I already burnt through most of the hp I had though as I bought 4-5 roster slots (I can't remember how many) and a 10 pack for the anniversary.

I rostered 3 different gambits and a 2* storm for sure lol.

Is OML's optimal build 5/5/3? I have him at 4/5/3 right now but thanks to the bugged pull rates earlier, I can make him either 5/5/3 or 3/5/5. I don't plan on champing him at all though because of scaling concerns and all that.

I think either way would likely be fine would would lean towards 5/5/3.

but i mean it depends on what you want to pair him with.

if it's often someone who uses black then the other way could be better.

Good thing I champed him too-I’ve already pulled 3 covers for Devil!

With all the ISO I championed Sandman-and I got another 5* Spidey. He's 5/1/1 for me. You know that that means! Only worthless dupes of the blue cover from here on out.

Managed to get Peggy most of the way done (I think Lv 253), I get a cover for her in a few days.

Got a Medusa cover from a Fan Favourites token, she's only at Lv 190 so I'll probably spend a few days leveling her.

I'll be out of town for Saturday and most of Sunday, also.

so.... I am guessing that we won't make it to a complete finish, so after we get the last x23 cover I am likely going to stop messing with the boss.

Back of the napkin calculations: If the boss is worth at least 40K, then ignoring side nodes, we'd have to beat him about 150 times as a group. There's 3 refreshes left, so 15 times to go against him, 20 if you haven't done this refresh's clears yet (I haven't). So it's not impossible, but it would take at least 10 of us actively trying to do it.

And looking at the list, it looks like only 9 of us have put much of an effort into it. IMO, save your health packs

things are getting really long to deal with though with little rewards.

I mean if they stopped being stupid and made the unlock nodes stay at a trivial 30 or so instead of 300 it would be one thing...

but the unlock nodes take a while and then the boss takes a while. I mean I could just whale it easily but still....

official forums or reddit.

Gafvengers will likely have one or two openings eventually, but the two people who aren't logging in very well haven't done so for an extended period of time so for now their spots are safe :P

yup. he is the major problem.
he isn't communicating at all, he seems to barely be playing, but yet keeps logging in enough that I can't make a case to CS even if I did want to boot him. I mean in the grand scheme of things I don't care too much. it would be nice to get a full iso bonus each day and have a fully active alliance for alliance events though.

I mean... absolute worst case, and people want to boot him, we could just make another alliance and all move there. It's not like the game tracks alliance history, and last I checked it wasn't that expensive to make an alliance anymore. I think it just costs the initial iso or hp or whatever. I don't think it costs HP per slot like it used to.

not something I have paid attention to though.

but I mean I wouldn't be apposed to increasing alliance requirements to
-Must try to log in each day, if you will miss for a prolonged time you should communicate such things.
- Should participate in alliance events as well as you can. life gets in the way, but a hit or two on a boss per day isn't that hard to do even when busy. The alliance events are good ways for weaker rosters to get some 4 stars, and also decent for those in 4 star land to get covers for a character.

as compared to the current loose rule of
-Try to log in each day, if you miss a bunch in a row you might be booted.

I mean, at no point do I want the alliance to be a serious alliance, as I mean I myself only actively do pvp or pve seriously from time to time. but I figure the alliance events which are focused on alliances are a good time to expect some participation from alliance players.

but I am tired and just throwing out thoughts lol.

I would love feedback from other members.

I mean, I don't actually care that much about missing this token. But given how alliance event levels go up based on time, rather than tier, if you can get more than half the alliance actually going at full blast from the first day, you can finish the whole event before the unlock nodes start getting to an uncomfortable level.

I'm doing a set of clears now, but I'm probably going to skip them tomorrow unless it looks like we actually have a decent chance of finishing (which right now, we don't really)

Yep. Sorry I'm not doing much during this event but I work through the weekends and this grind takes too long for me to really get into it. The enemy nodes haven't been too bad for me, but the bosses first phase is a damn slog. I finish him once and feel like I had my fill of the game for the day, lol.

it's all good.

anyways playing around with gambit his purple and red both are better than they read.

his purple can fire even if there aren't any enemy tiles on the board it just targets them first.

and his red targets charged tiles first and then gives you AP for them.

I feel like a 0/5/5 one could pair nicely with x23, but locking out her purple (and windows purple in the required nodes) kind of sucks

I run 3/5/5

in general the black is more impressive than the blue, but the blue pairs nicely with characters like 4* blade who is boosted.

so I just run 4* blade, and 3* iron man.

blade makes large strike tiles, and then after iron man goes off punisher can usually do a 14k+ aoe thanks to the strike tiles allowing you to down one enemy pretty quickly.

you get to make more strikes with blue you got from iron man, and if there is still something left 2 turns later blade comes back with his fury.
