Avengers Alliance Updates
I came into the game past Special Ops 1 which unlocked Mockingbird, so I missed her. Special Ops 2 was way too intense for a low level free player to complete, so I also missed Emma Frost. However, I am three steps away from getting Magick, but there's a slight problem. The scarcity of Command Points. You see, to get her, you have to unlock and defeat the Epic Bosses. Doing so requires three 90CP characters. That's absurd. It's not if you pay for gold with real money, but I'm not about to do that. I have a plan to maybe pull this off, but I don't know if I will be able to. We shall see. I'll keep you guys updated.
MARVEL.COM. Speaking of new characters, Quicksilver was released this week and he's pretty awesome so far. He's a scrapper, which I only had two of and is relatively cheap at 48 points. Compared to Black Panther, Rogue, and Gambit(who you need without gold to complete SO3) at 90, this was a bargain.
The last major update came last week with the revamped PVP Tournament Season. There are now leagues and prizes based upon your rank and number of battles you participate in. This would be wonderful if it wasn't a case of "Who can spend the most money and buy the most crap to destroy everyone that's a similar level." The PVP system is so unbalanced and broken that there needs to be a separation between players dropping buckets of real cash for gold and items and players who will occasionally spend a little here and there. It's really annoying when I go into a battle with another level 57 player who has 9,000 offense and defense. The prize for this first season is a first crack at Deadpool. I'm kind of sick of Deadpool so it's no biggie . The gold league would be a nice win for me, though. I'm just not down for paying a ton of money for what should be 50 cent a piece DLC.
