Thereís a stupid bug that if you attempt to join an alliance and it doesnít go through for whatever reason, you canít ever join again.

I just changed our name to Hebrons. Try that and see if we pop up. That may be a workaround.

If he's asking about Elektra vs nebula, you can bet he's early in the game. Like, first week or so. Nebula is an early unlock and Elektra event is available at the beginning. Assume his options are the starters plus maybe whatever beginner pack he was offered.

Yeah. Pretty much Spidey, Punisher, Elektra, Nebula, Luke, Gamora and Quake.

I am definitely taking the next few blitzes off. I got 564K last blitz for Quack. Felt good about it.

I canít get out of Tier 1 this blitz. My top team just lost to a 94K team because the spidey dodged every attack. Literally could not die. My team is 132K to put it in perspective.

Matter of fact, this keeps happening and itís crazy weird. Iím losing to a bunch of teams starting this blitz where itís tons of revives, or endless speed boosts from BW.

Iíll step back into Blitz when Cap and BW are maxed.

Between this and the thomas raid rewards, shiiiiiiiiieeetttttt.

Yeah blitzes were already getting exhausting with the 6 hour refresh. It's getting a bit much with the 2 hour. This orb blitz I've just smashed my A-team's face into enemies repeatedly. Just don't have the energy to do the whole, "fight with every team to get your tier up" thing.

Low tiers in blitz are still pretty trivial using 3 mooks at 40-70 power and 2 damage dealers that are a bit higher, as long as you have them powered up via the bottom 2 gear items and their damage dealing skill leveled a bit. Dudes with a cleave/aoe can wipe out entire enemy teams in tiers 1-3 with one or two attacks.

I hit 850k for Quake, top 10%

Blitz is so drat hit and miss. First 3 battles i can snooze through, typically, but that 4th fight...even t1....gotta pay attention.
I've had my A and B team lose which is some bullshit

I'm still not feeling the 2 hour timer. I guess I'm hitting the max milestone everytime now at least but meh?

Wow that sucks. I was about 300k and still hit top 10%. The range is crazy.

YOU DON'T KNOW A DAMN THING ABOUT RACING !

I prefer another Mega-Orb over Groot shards. He's not that great, even with the RR synergy. And I'm not in range of the Starlord requirements, I got a Guardian/Ravager team ready for that event, but I lack two 5* members to unlock him:

7* Gam
5* Drax
5* Yondu
4* Groot
3* Ravager Bruiser 75/80 til 4*
3* RR

Groot and the Bruiser are too far away from 5* to make it this time.

Youíre in the beta blitz shard, sounds like theyíre getting combined this week and the reward brackets are getting tweaked so hopefully itís an improvement.

I had 1.38 million and was rank 270ish on live shard fwiw. Didnít spend charges beyond my 100 daily and still got top 500 easily just through the 2 hour refreshes.

Okay everyone's blitz results seem way far off what I've been doing. I normally get to milestone 8 or sometimes 9, however many points that is, and usually end up around 45-60k in the ranks, which puts me in the 11-25% bracket i think? What milestone do you all normally play to, or do the milestones not directly correlate with points accrued?

Milestones are the same for everyone. Orb blitz has lower milestones since it only lasts a day. Each of the 3 day blitzes that happen every week have a final milestone at 600k. It's very easy to hit 600k when you have multiple teams that get over 25k points per win and you get 3 free fights and 3 25-cost fights every day. I am usually at 600k like 24 hours after the character blitzes start and still have 500 charges because of the challenge and daily.

Now that they lowered the timer to 2 hours it's even more crazy if you are able to log in and get like 6+ free fights a day with your teams.

Bitches love my tool time

How are you getting 25k a win? With multipliers I usually max out at 7k or something but I could be bad or doing it worth. Even if I use lower level teams to boost the multiplier I usually die to the higher teams because I push too high.

RosaParksOfDip
May 11, 2009


Having a higher score team means you face higher score people that give more points. Add that to the tier 8 multiplier and you get 20k+.

Only two contestants left! Here is Doom's chance for revenge...


I have never gotten 20K off a Blitz win. The best I have ever done was about 8K. Now I accept that I could get higher than Tier 6, but that's the best I do.

I normally finish in the 11-25% bracket IN blitz. I have finished in the 1-10% bracket for one or two Blitzes, but that's it.

I do not find Blitz this super easy welfare reward system.

I use two teams to farm in blitz currently. Cap, BW, Quake, Gamora, Hawkeye with a combined power of 115k gets ~31k points per win at 8-4. Yondu, Xbones, Kingpin, Dr. Strange, Thanos with a team power of 100k gets ~28k points. When we get Wasp, I'll probably run a third team that's something like Vision, Antman, Wasp, Iron Man, Merc Lieutenant. Maybe Drax or something instead if I need a tank.

I start out using three 42 point nobodies (one is Fisk) and two ~700 marquee dudes for the first three fights. By the fourth fight it's clear they're gonna get their rear end kicked and I'm sick of blitz after three fights anyway so I just switch to my ~100k A team. Then I just ride that until if I'm lucky I get a 2.5x multiplier right before I make it to milestone 8. Once i'm there, the fourth battle in whatever tier that is kicks my rear end and resets me so I can beat 3 teams until hitting the fourth and resetting. At that point I'm very sick of blitz and it's clear I won't make it to milestone 9 without draining all my blitz doohickeys, which I guess I don't like to drop below 300 because I'm a hoarder and feel incomplete if it's not 500/500?

I've hit a wall with a lot of my characters. I cannot get for example advanced MRI because I'm a full chapter behind unlocking any of those nodes, but i don't have a party strong enough to advance in the story missions.

Love those paywalls.

Tiny Chalupa

You need tier 8 to get 20k+ in a Blitz fight.
You can accomplish that with a great A team and Solid B team
If you can pull a C and D team with a 75%+ win rate, on manual control and picking the right fights, you'll place extremely well

I always get at least top 1 to 10%
My A and B team are rock solid. I'm chugging along with a t8 worthy C team, not a lot of points on a win but it gets the multiplier up, and D team is right behind them with being ready

When the Blitz changes go live, this might get shaken up

I'm stuck in the 70s for my best team's power and I literally don't know where to go from here. I didn't blaze through the story before they made it actually difficult so I'm locked out of autowins for gear mats.

There's about a week where you progress through the stores. Then you get high enough to punch through and farm the stuff yourself. But you still get it from the store cause you need to farm shards.

Fun Shoe

I've come around a little on the 2 hour blitz. On the one hand, it's laughably impossible for me to ever get below 1-10%. On the other hand, it makes it easier to hit all the milestones without juggling cooldowns obsessively. I basically do D-C-B-A teams three or four times a day, one time twice in a row so I can get the 100 tokens from the daily quest and not waste any. Once I'm in the upper tiers the D and C teams drop off.

If I felt the need to get top 100 it would burn me out faster than a gunpowder and gasoline fire but since they moved the goalposts for that from 'vaguely possible' to 'lol' it doesn't sting nearly as much.

Basically, I'm playing more for the milestones than the placement and even then if I miss the top 2 or 3 milestones it's no big deal since the rewards aren't enormous.

My intentions are to re-do the OP and get the new post up tonight just FYI. Itís time for some new blood in here and really, that OP does nothing to attract new players to this game, which is still at the top of charts for downloads and is still fun, despite flaws.

Thereís some good QoL improvements coming soon too, especially for raids, so yeah, letís breathe some life into this. Iíll have a pretty in depth OP going too, as I always do because while I am terrible at actually PLAYING games, I am great at TALKING ABOUT games.

Iíll post the new link ASAP.
