    BCumming reacted to maniakmedic in New Player: Any suggestions tips welcome   
    The biggest suggestion I have is that you need to remember that every hero plays differently. Some may seem similar on first look, but they all have something that is their own, so you can't play one hero one way and expect that to work with everybody.
    Cap is great all-around, and probably one of the easiest of the expansion heroes to figure out.
    Thor kind of looks like Cap, kit-wise, but he requires a lot more set-up to really shine (and he can really shine).
    Black Widow needs a lot of space, because you want all the preparations ready to discard.
    I also really like Hulk. He's just fun and smashy. You do need to get resource generators out early to mitigate his hand size, but he can really throw down damage. That tends to work better in co-op, but I've found that if you can just steamroll the villain in solo, his inability to thwart is not a big deal.

    Maybe Nebula's hero pack will have her own victory condition(s) that necessitate working with the rest of the team on some things and sabotaging others, a la Cylons in the Battlestar Galactica board game, Impostors in Among Us, the Renegade role in Bang!, and so on.  Highly unlikely given Champions' place as the 'quick and easy' co-op game but very fun to speculate on.

    So far the team up cards have only been given to a hero and there signature ally. And not every hero has a team up card with said ally, ie Captain Marvel and Spider Woman. I understand that they don't have to stay within those boundaries, but at the same time I don't want them to over use it. I like where it's at right now.
    Although I think a simpler way to incorporate that, would just to have a team up card with Captain America's shield and Mjolnir, as in a team up card for there upgrades. Which would mean it would also work for future heros with those upgrades, like Thor Jane Foster or Major Victory. Although I doubt they'll do those guys as heros anytime soon(even though I love Major Victory).

    Black Widow & Hawkeye is the one I want to see most, thanks to the MCU, with a Wolverine & Colossus "Fastball Special" after that.  I half-expect one for Star-Lord and Gamora as well.  As for how a Team-Up for existing heroes is released, that's hard to say since both have hero packs already so maybe in a campaign set?  Scarlet Witch and Vision have a lot of history in the comics but SW gets her Team-Up with Quicksilver in her hero pack and I doubt they'd have a second in there for her and Vision.  I suppose a Vision hero pack could contain two copies so you can use the extra with SW.

    I once said I want a team up card for Black Widow and Hawkeye called Budapest. One copy's flavor text says this reminds me of Budapest and the other says you and I remember Budapest very differently.

    I dont think Cap and Thor are particularly vested in a team-up in the comics.
    The ones that are more familiar to me...
    Captain America/The Falcon Captain America/Bucky Barnes Ant-Man/Wasp Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch Scarlet Witch/Vision Beast/Wonder Man Iron-Man/War Machine Luke Cage/Iron Fist* The Original Heroes for Hire Daredevil/Elektra Spider-Man/Everyone* - There was a comic called Marvel Team-Up which was pretty much Spider-Man and somebody else The Thing/Everyone* - a similar concept, Marvel Two-In-One was a comic where the Thing teamed-up with everyone

    No reason given, but the updated release schedule is:
    - January- Wasp
    - February- Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch
    - March - Galaxies Most Wanted
    Presumably it’s just delays as we’ve seen with many many of their other products over the years.

    Lockjaw seems like a good fit for Hulk.  This good boy has the resource type Hulk likes and being playable from the discard pile is nice since Hulk can't cycle his deck as quickly as other heroes.  A decent source of THW is more important to Hulk in solo than group games and might just be handy to have with 2+ heroes around.
    Spider-Man (Miles Morales) is coming out in the Wasp pack.  He's up on Hall of Heroes, don't know where the card was originally previewed or confirmed.

    Hulk is considered by many to be the weakest Hero released so far (an opinion we share), but does that mean that he isn't fun to use? In this article I play 30(!) games with a Hulk Leadership deck, making modifications along the way, in order to try and have some fun using the big green guy.

    Thor is dependent on the amount of minions in a scenario and ranges from fine to great based on that.   He plays better than most people thought from just looking at his cards, and getting engagement-manipulating cards in other aspects will improve his options.
    Hulk missed the mark on a few things so I'd expect more aspect cards designed to prop him up than errata or a complete re-do anytime soon.

    I was hoping for silhouettes too.  Hopefully they're saving those (and more Wasp previews!) for some December content since no new products are releasing then.
    As for which heroes we get, I think we're all in agreement that Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax are practically guaranteed and the 4th pack is up in the air.  Mantis makes some sense with her MCU appearances though she's not quite what I'd call a main character.  Nebula is a possibility but she has more screen time as a villain, plus she's a villain in GMW and I don't think they want to have the conflict of a new character not being usable in one of the most recent scenarios.  This could be a great slot to add in another comic-only character like Adam Warlock, Nova, Phyla-Vell, etc.  Then for aspects in the cycle packs, Leadership and Justice should be in the first two to round out GMW's Aggression and Protection.  After that, it's a gamble, though I hope Justice gets another pack quickly since its card pool is a bit behind the others.  Thus my predictions are:
    First: Star-Lord/Leadership - he's the team leader after all, might have a Team-Up card with Gamora Second: Gamora/Justice - former assassin turned hero lends itself to Justice IMO Third: Drax/Aggression - the brute/muscle of the squad in the movies lends itself well to Aggression Fourth: ???/Justice(?)

    I would bet good money Star Lord, Gamora and Drax are 3 of the next 4 heroes. I would be massively shocked if all 3 aren’t hero packs.

    I like a lot of the ideas they had for Hulk, I just think it really comes down to an issue where it’s a little hard to do anything.
    I think you could keep the theme, but make him a bit better if you gave Hulk immune to stun and draw a card whenever he takes damage (to represent his growing rage) and swapped Banner’s ability for “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry! - Discard a card to search your deck or discard pile for a copy of Limitless Strength and add it to your hand. Shuffle your deck”
    That way you could keep the feeling of a desperate scientist getting by on his wits and an uncontrollable monster, but with the ability to have some more explosive turns...

    I am really excited for this box. The small glimpse we've been given of the two heroes Rocket and Groot has had me super stoked to see more of how they work. Also, the fact that we know all of Groot's events are various forms of "I am Groot" (and one "We are Groot") is a fun detail and I can't wait to see what all of them do. And Rocket looks like he'll be able to team up with Iron Man due to his being tech heavy.
    Can't wait for the live stream tomorrow!

    There are three relatively easy things to do...
    1) Make a new version of the Hero someways down the road that does not replace the current Hero but gives a different option.  They did this with LotR Heroes.  This is perhaps the least likely because they would have to decide if they also want to create alternate signature cards and how they would do that.
    2) Make some aspect/basic cards that are tailored to helping out the more challenging Heroes. They can make cards that play off the keywords.  For example, a 1-cost card card that removes thwart equal to the number of Asgard cards in play would boost Thor trewmendously.    Or perhaps a 0-cost card that draws cards equal to damage dealt to a minion would accelerate Hulk.  Or just making an aggression dual resource cards that can only be used to pay for attacks that cost exactly 3.  Or dual resource cards that can only be played if the number of cards you control is less than your hand size.
    3) Make scenarios where these Heroes shine.  It would be a fairly simple math model.  Just make a scenario that puts out 4 or 5 thwart a turn and pumps out confuse locks so that a thwarting hero just cant keep up, but a high damage hero can.  Alternatively they can make "Battle" scenarios that use ATK instead of THW when thwarting or "Siege" that uses DEF instead of THW.

    His helmet is great, but Army of Ants may be my new favourite card! It feels so great having them all out.
    He’s been so much fun so far. He really should flip at least once per turn, as more if he can.
