Police Assault In Progress

These drops for shards feel abysmal even compared to Galaxy of Heroes but they gave me my boys Punisher and Wolferine fairly early so I'm in for the long haul

If you think of them as hard nodes (which they are) the drop rate is fairly decent. The fact that you get 2 instead of 1 when it procs is nice.

This is free2play 101 on launch. The rates on everything are always hosed.

This game will own super hard after about 3-6 months. Even now, Iím loving it. But yeah, be prepared for changes in coming patches.

I mean I just unlocked Quake and got JJones to 2* already and I can't do most content anymore due to being stuck at 99% so I can't complain

Of course getting them higher is going to loving suck, how many shards is Max Starz

For those of you who have been playing since soft launch can you give us new players a run down of who we should be aiming for in each shop/ campaign?

This is only opinion and what seems to be general pubby consensus

Blitz feels like Gamora is the one to shoot for first, she has 2 moves that proc a free turn on kill, I'm gearing her now and I feel she may replace Daredevil on the A team.

Arena is Quake, she's apparently v. good due to massive AOE damage and buffs or something I'm like 6 shards away.

Alliance store is Thor though raid tickets are harder to come by until higher levels.

Captain America: best tank right now who gives Defense+ and Energy+
Drax: 2nd best tank with counterattacks, heals, and you'll need him later for the Cosmic campaign
Crossbones: if he survives to his 3rd turn he'll most likely kill everyone with his explosion

Gamora: can get multiple turns in a row if you plan her attacks out well
Winter Soldier: the better assassin over Elektra since he can do his ultimate 1st turn
Yondu: very good AOE and summons minions

Quake: absolutely amazing Slow debuff and AOE damage with Offense-
Kingpin: decent for Villain teams early on, I find him not that great for offense though, just good for his buffs and Taunting minions
Punisher: just there for his 1st turn AOE damage, stack a team with fast AOEs and you can finish off most enemies fast if you also run Gamora

A lot of Arena/Blitz teams right now run 2-3 tanks hoping to keep Crossbones alive long enough to blow up. As long as you can kill/delay him you should be fine, which is why Quake's Slow is amazing. She'll make sure your Crossbones goes before the enemy's.

I guess I have to work on Capt. w/o the bundle bonus. I wasn't offered the Captain America bundle like I've seen on the forums. I also wasn't offered a similar bundle in place of it either. I did see the Kingpin offer, but I've seen people get the Kingpin offer, and the Captain offer at the same time.

It really does! It could be RNG, but my villains team is so much more interesting than my hero one. Between Crossbones blowing up and Yandu doing his thing there is a lot to like!

I just got my Wolverine and good lord he scales up so quickly. Now that he and Iron Fist are fighting fit I'm absolutely wrecking.

Right now, my go-to mixed team is Captain America, Yondu, Wolverine, Iron Fist, and Daredevil. I do really like Spiderman but right now Daredevil is edging him out. Poor Luke Cage and Crossbones are getting left behind..

I like Spider-Man, but he dies so quickly that I'm going to replace him on my hero team as soon as I get someone else who deals suitable damage. He's already out in every mode that allows villains.

What's a war hero got to do to get some lubrication around here?

My problem with Crossbones is he keeps killing himself with his bomb (well, having so low health after using it he dies) which otherwise would have gotten be 3* on missions. But I finally unlocked the Bucky node so I can farm him.

Well the idea is most enemies would be dead or at least near dead once the bomb goes off, and Deathproof should help him stay alive at low health.

Daredevil is a good brawler but he should probably be replaced by Gamora when you unlock her. There's no way to star up DD right now and Gamora hits harder once she gets going.

Almost everyone who has applied to the Grest Lakes Goon Squad has been accepted! There was one goon who mentioned they applied but I never received an in-game confirmation of that, so if you are waiting for an acceptance please hit me up again! Also, GLGS finally has enough people in it to start raiding - exciting!

Blitz tickets are somewhat more numerous thanks to milestone payouts instead of just the daily objective and daily payout, but he's right there if you want him.

She's got an interesting kit but I feel like she's not doing enough damage to make her worth putting more resources into.

Which reminds me... how's this game with balance updates? Is this going to end up like that DC game where characters would drop or raise several tiers of power every week or so?

Always gotta pay it forward.

Wanna join a guild but haven't hit level 20. I've run into a bit of a wall at 3/9. Any advice on rushing to 20 so I can join a guild? I don't have any new heroes outside of the ones the game gives you so it's Luke Cage, DD, Punisher, Spidey, and the stupid medic for now.
