Great Lakes Goon Squad = Best Squad.

Need some help sperging on team planning.

Right now I'm running with Drax, Gams, Yondu, NN, and Quake as sort of an all purpose, do-everything team. XBONE gets subbed in for Blitz and Arena. My priorities right now are:

Keep improving raid team
Need to up my villain team. I start stalling in the middle of 5 and can barely clear 5-9.
Merc team (for payday)
Blaster team (for catalyst challenge)

(Named)Villains I have available now (in order of power):
Yondu, Xbones, Thanos, Elektra, Bullseye, Nebula, and Ronan. MY top 5 in overall power are the first three named plus Hand Archer and Merc Riot Guard.

So I guess my two big questions: OTher than gearing/leveling, is there any switches I can make to make a more effective Raid TEam?

What are my shard priorities otherwise? I'm working on getting Korath and Merc LT. That should help some as my blaster team is Thor, Hand ARcher, Punisher, Shield Assault and Bullseye. I guess building up Archer and Bullseye would solve some of my issues most effectively.


Any thoughts or recommendations?

The most effective thing you can do for your raid team is to three-star Heroes 6-9 so you can unlock Cap. His block and high armor make him much more effective heal target than Drax, not to mention he's much more useful on Arena Offense/Defense. Drop Shield Assault when you get Korath.

Thanks. I have in fact unlocked Heroes 6-9 and have been diligently farming Cap shards. Is it worth using cores to refresh the node, say, once a day?

I did refresh that node until the refreshes starting costing 100 cores since I had a lot of cores saved up by then. I figured it was worth it since by most whales and powerspergs opinion, Cap is the best tank in the game.

Having had him for about a month or two now, I'm inclined to agree.

I still can't believe the absolutely bonkers value system this game/the devs have. There's currently an offer of $40 for 45 Yondu Shards and 2000 Gold Orb fragments.

FOURTY DOLLARS. That's a night out to the movies with concessions. Or four burritos. Or a sorta recent video game release. An actual, whole, start-to-finish video game that dozens of people spent developing.

If I spent $40 on one character I'd expect it to be a full 7 star, lvl 60+ and have all his abilities maxed, and also a scheduled surgery appointment to fix my brokebrain.

Just got into this and started bumbling around. Is there a Good Alliance to join?

Jesus though, those offers are dumb. $60 for Night Nurse? I used to spend real money on Avengers Alliance, since there was stuff I could buy cheap. But the cheapest offer I've seen is $15 for a Ravager guy.

Discord for alliances : https://discordapp.com/invite/tneWgZy

New players used to be able to get either Captain America or Black Widow for $10, if they still have those, they are by far the best value for your money

explosivo posted:

I think the craziest thing about the offers in this game is that you can play this game without spending anything (or, very little in my case) and be competitive with players who have spent hundreds of dollars. It takes a long fuckin' time but as long as you start out with a clear goal of ONE main team to focus on you'll get there. It makes it sting a little less when they decide one day to nerf something you've worked so hard to get. At least it's just shittons of time wasted, not time and money

That said, I would gobble up a decently priced BW bundle, as if that would ever happen. They clearly seem to be paying attention to what people want and pricing accordingly. The fact that they released a ridiculously overpriced NN bundle knowing full well she's basically required for raids is pretty hosed up IMO. People must be buying these despite the vocal outrage about the prices because they keep doubling down.

Yeah I do appreicate that of the 'top tier' characters, the only ones you can't really grind for is Black Widow and Deadpool. Deadpool being an event character that most people were able to unlock. Everyone else is realistically obtainable in a couple months of playing.

Don't buy orbs. I use cores on refreshes and selected characters shards in the store (black widow mostly)

This is what I do too. If you're completing all your daily objectives you can afford to refresh your campaign energy until it costs 100 cores for a refresh and still come out ahead on cores if you're making at least top 500 in Arena.

MSF has made $25 million since launch.

How active? Catmans has been pretty consistent getting 80%+ on the highest Ultimus raid, even with a couple freeloaders(pubbies?) out of 20-21 raiders

What did they change? I don't remember his kit before other than people saying he was bad

So what you're saying is, stay the gently caress away from Nick Fury nodes from now on?

Pretty much, the right side of the Ultimus 50 raid is noticeably tougher. They're pretty much constantly buffing and healing each other.

I swear they're loving around with Arena constantly.

I'll go 2 days in a row without dropping position and then all of a sudden find myself almost falling out of top 250. Climbing up means facing teams of 14k+ power

2 days after that I'm in the top 100 and surrounded by people in the 12-13k power range.

My Arena Defense team hasn't been powered at all during this time, as everything's been going towards my Vision and Mystic team

Venom seems really good but I find it hard to justify leveling up yet another character when I'm still trying to level up my cosmic and mystic teams AND trying to get enough ravager shards to get Starlord.

I predict Venom dominating Arena in a few months, he hits all the marks, especially with a bit of synergy with another amazing arena character (spidey)

It's retaining states for saved teams between modes. You can take storm into a normal mission, build charge, and drop a 10 stack ult on turn 1 in arena and blitz lol

And all while half the playerbase can't even play.

What a shitshow.

Yeah but you'll get plenty of orbs from the juggernaut event too one would assume. I mean, I'd really love to give them my money since I've waited all this time for more mutants and they're really delivering now, but I spent $60 on RDR2 and when I compare that game to this it's like... shouldn't they be paying ME to play this thing?

The best suggestion I've heard about this game is that the payday event should be every two weeks, like how you get paid at most hourly wage jobs.

Efficiency tip: always dogpile spider-hyphen-man first so you know whether or not you lose after the first round of blitz.

I leave him for last and act surprised when he dodges 6 attacks in a row and wins 1v3

God drat i hate the Magneto event is only available if you have 5 mutants, but because almost all the mutants are paywalled, you're SOL.

To no one's complete surprise, the only ones getting magneto any time soon are whales
