My Marvel Heroes Diary for 5-1-14: Eternity Splinter Hero #3

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 5-1-14: Eternity Splinter Hero #3

Talk about taking forever!  This stint of gathering Splinters seemed to take an …eternity?  If it wasn’t for the Big 10 Week Promo then I wouldn’t have got my 400 until sometime next week or so.  Mainly because I’ve been leveling heroes and going from levels 1 through 30 doesn’t always guarantee a good SIF % which means a drop in Eternity Splinters rate.

In the time it took me to save up 400 ES I had leveled Thor up to level 30 and Cable up to level 29.  (soon to be 30).  Today upon getting my free gifts for logging in I got 25 ES (being only 1 short) and I was free to buy Wolverine.

I purchased and…

Wolverine is Hero Number 21!!!

If you didn’t already know I was focused on getting Wolverine because I had received a Wolverine costume in March.  You can’t have a costume without having the character right?  So, I didn’t have much of a choice but to earn Wolvie.  The purchased characters don’t have the “punch” of excitement as the random hero does I do admit.  It makes for a very boring blog entry too.  I apologize.  I was going to go for Team Up character or Taskmaster but, I think for sake of “excitement” I need to go for the Random Hero Box this time.  If I get a duplicate then I can go the Taskmaster route. (He’s only 200 ES)  BTW my next hero to level is Hulk.  He should be a blast to play.  Cable wasn’t that exciting I do have to say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and I finally get to show off my

Wolverine: Days of Future Past Costume

that I pulled from a Mark I fortune card on March 18th.

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 4-26-14: Random Hero Box #9

It’s the Big 10 Week and it’s probably the best time to be playing Marvel Heroes.  Biggest event so far actually.  Big 10 means that it is Marvel Heroes is 10 months old and they are throwing together 10 of the most popular events that we’ve had so far this year.

It doesn’t stop their folks!  on the start date of this event 9 codes were dropped to make our lives easier.  The big one’s to take away from this are the Free Random Hero and the Free Random Costume.  It’s truly random.  The last time I got a free Random Hero box (#8) was for the Marvel Madness appreciation they did last month.  I got a duplicate Scarlet Witch.  Just for the record #7 was a dupe too and it was Thor.

Here are a list of the codes.  Enjoy!  Actually, if you would like to bookmark this website —-> Orcz.com  They are really good on keeping this stuff up to date.

So, before I opened up my Random Hero Box, I cleared everything else up like getting my free cube shards together just so I could get some Rarity/XP boosts.  I can’t complain I guess, last month gave me the Wolverine DOFP costume.  So….  Here I am ready to open ‘er up and wait!  If I get a dupe I didn’t want one for Cable yet so, I went to ole trusty.  Iron Man so, that if I did get a dupe I got an upgrade for his ultimate power.  Scarlet Witch definitely doesn’t need another, she’s got 3 thus far.

I opened up and…

Captain America is Hero Number 20!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After that gem of Awesomness, I continued and opened the Random Costume box and Got…

Cable: Original Costume

Not my favorite costume, but what can I say… when you get a costume in this game you don’t complain.  You rejoice.

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 3-18-14: Mission is Deadpool Unmasked

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 3-18-14: Mission is Deadpool Unmasked

Way back in late October…

I decided to myself and made it a personal mission to “focus” on obtaining Deadpool costume “Unmasked”.  You can see a picture of it here.

The Deadpool unmasked costume is ONE of FIVE costumes that is in a Mark I Fortune Card.  Amongst many other things that you do not really need.  At this time I had already had the Iron Man & Thor Mark I fortune card costumes and it only made sense to go for the Deadpool one since that was the only character I had with what characters had costumes in this card.  Make sense?

The Five Mark I costumes

 1.  Iron Man:  Stealth Armor Costume

2.  Thor:  Destroyer Costume

3.  Deadpool:  Unmasked Costume

4.  Captain America: The Captain Costume

5.  Wolverine: Days of Future Past Costume

After opening 46 Mark I Fortune Cards and only getting disappointment I finally got a costume.  Not the one I was striving for but ya know what?  After opening 46 cards and being conditioned to feel that it was going to be crap, it was a nice change of pace to get this costume.  Wait, I should preface that by saying that I had opened may cards up prior to October 23rd.  I just started keeping track on that day.

Wolverine: Days of Future Past Costume. (as seen in the first pic)

Now, I wish I could show it off to you but all you get right now is a small ICON of the costume.  Sorry, I do not have Wolverine yet.  But I will say that it helped me make a decision.  Instead of gambling on a Random Hero Box this time around (which is were I was headed) I will now instead save up the 400 Eternity Splinters and get ole Wolvie.  I’m actually pretty excited about that.  I played Wolverine in the Beta long ago and he was pretty fun to play.  Although the word around the game is that he is one of the worst characters to play.  I do not care I will cherish my play time with him.

I haven’t given up on the search for the Deadpool Unmasked costume either.  I’m just afraid that they are going to “do away with” the Mark I fortune cards before I can get the remaining 2 costumes.  Here’s to a BUNCH of luck.

As you can see I have been playing with Spider-Man.  He is quite “Squishy”.  There are times that he can kick a lot of butt but then there are times that his health bar goes really fast.  I’m hoping he toughens up once I get into the higher levels.  Currently I am level 26 getting ready to fight Malekith and then onwards to Die a “Gazillion” times fighting Loki.  (ya see what I did there?)

Well, running around Norway I found myself posing with some snow-men so, who am I to deny a photo opp?  All right, I will see you in about 2-3 weeks when I finally have enough ES to get Wolverine.  See you then!

I also thought I would post my Mark I findings since October 23rd.  The patterns are interesting.

Fantastic Rumor, Fantastic Four, Fantastic Flop

Fantastic Four is coming… again.

With the amount of rumors and speculation that has followed this movie it’s really hard to actually tell where this movie is going.  Just recently news hit the web about the 4 main characters being cast.  Even then it seemed like rumor but the actors that were implicated have more or less said it’s for real so I guess there’s no turning back.  Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic & Jamie Bell as “The Thing”?  yeah, ok.  I have yet to see anything from Fox Studios in the way of a confirmation

It is a broad range of what can happen with this movie.  It can either go straight to the toilet or possibly a really great comic book movie.  And I say that with a mysterious look on my face because we really know nothing about this movie.  Anything concrete anyway.  Fantastic Four has so much potential to be really great and for me it all starts with the casting.  That was a major point of disappointment during the last two tries from Tim Story.  I won’t get too much into that but besides Michael Chiklis & Chris Evans everyone else was horribly cast.

So, I wanted to go through all of these supposed rumors of everything that we supposedly have heard around the web.  Josh Trank has debunked most of these via his Twitter account but he has said that one of them is true.  Let’s list these by order of importance to me.  I won’t mention the old rumors we had way back about Bruce Willis as The Thing or more reports of The Thing being all CGI.

  1. Michael B. Jordon as Johnny Storm:  I love Michael B. Jordon.  I’ve been a fan of his since Friday Night Lights and really thought he should have gotten an Oscar nomination for his work in Fruitvale Station.  But I have to plead with everything that is sane.  Do not cast him as Johnny Storm.  Secondary roles can have a color blind casting and it wouldn’t matter as much.  Johnny Storm is a main character.  I firmly believe that if it is a white character than a white character needs to be cast.  If it is a black character then it needs to have a black actor.  British or American does not matter; it is the look is all that I’m concerned with.  Johnny Storm is white.  I expect to see a blonde headed white guy in there catching fire.  I am not racist in any way shape or form.  These are basic needs that are needed to have a good Fantastic Four movie.  Then everyone brings up the whole Joker / Heath Ledger casting.  Really?  Yeah, it was a good casting but honestly he didn’t rep the source material that well.  His portrayal made everyone forget that they totally deviated from the source material of The Joker.  The whole series was in left field but he made that series watchable.  Because if it wasn’t for Heath then the whole Nolan-Bat vision wouldn’t have worked out so well.  Only because it honored very little to the source material.  But for every Heath Ledger you have a Jennifer Garner as Elektra.  Or Jessica Alba as Invisible Woman or even Tom Hardy as Bane.  These are examples of horrible character casting and the movies have failed because of it.  One thing that all of these have in common is that they tried to change who the character’s race.  Elektra should have been Greek or at least looked the part.  Invisible Woman should have been a white chick.  Bane should have been of Mexican/Spanish decent.  Back to the matter of hand.  Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm would not only be a bad decision for the character it sets the movie up poorly as well.  Because then it would have to start messing with origin stories.  Changing those up just isn’t a good idea.  If you want to make a movie about 4 individuals that get special powers than go make your own movie like that.  You can cast whoever you want.  Just leave the Fantastic Four alone.  Michael was recently quoted as saying “Nah, they’ll go see it anyway” which is probably true.  Not because of his casting but because it’s a Fantastic Four movie.  He has also said that people with my disposition are “narrow-minded”.  To that I say you are narrow minded sir.  You see this as a HUGE paycheck and why would you think otherwise?  Money is money and its green.  Basically anyone that is standing up for this ridiculous casting is trying their best not to step on toes and accidentally be labeled as racist.  It drives me crazy hearing people say “ah well, I don’t have a problem with it, Michael is a great actor”.  True is a great actor but this is not his part.  Hollywood trying to break ground.  Well, Hollywood If I decided to make a Walt Disney movie and cast Jackie Chan as Walt what would you say then?  Well, Jackie is a great actor?  Or would you say it was ridiculous?  People want a Fantastic Four movie any way they can get it.  This casting is keeping it from being great.  …and a few other things too I guess.
  2. Casting younger characters such as Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic:  Ok, going younger has been a recent trend as Spider-Man just went younger a couple years ago.  Hollywood thinks, well we need to reboot so, lets go younger to hit a wider demographic.  I don’t like that Idea because it messes with the characters once again.  How am I suppose to believe that Reed Richards is one of the 8 smartest people on the planet if he looks like he needs a hall pass to be in the library right now.  Seriously.  Reed = 30’s.  Sue = late 20’s early 30’s.  Ben = 30’s.  Johnny = 20’s.  That’s how it should be not Reed, Sue, Ben & Johnny = Teens.  As for the “true” rumor that Trank debunked.  It is probably the one that Miles tested for the part of Mr. Fantastic that didn’t at the time but then eventually did.
  3. There was a supposed synopsis leaked online that was said to be the synopsis of the movie.  It was something like Ben & Reed get powers on and somehow get owned by the government and used as weapons.  They later on meet up with Sue & Johnny that also have powers.  Well, the only thing I have to say about that is that you can’t mess with the original origin story for The Fantastic Four.  It can stay very vague as well.  It doesn’t have to be exact.  4 (correctly cast) individuals go up into space and are hit with cosmic rays giving them special powers.  When they arrive back on earth they learn that they have these powers and decide that they need to use them to save lives.  Easy as that.  They could face a mole man or see some skrull’s I wouldn’t be mad about that.
  4. Josh Gad as Ben Grimm (Thing):  I actually don’t have problems with this rumor.  This confirms past stories that Thing will be CGI which is great in my book because having him possess so much strength in such a small body just didn’t make sense to me.  If Josh Gad can do a raspy Jersey man than sure.  I’m down.
  5. Is Doom a girl?:  Ok, I don’t even want to speak to that rumor.  That’s stupid.  If Dr Doom was a girl I would write letters to have this movie boycotted.
  6. Filming begins in March?  Ok, so it’s late February now and casting has supposedly just been announced but they are going to start filming in March?  Doesn’t make sense.  I’m guessing that the actors have already been cast.  Why else would you wait so long to cast your parts.  Unless you plan on postponing your movie because you want to show that it’s in a pre-production stage?  (to hold on to rights)

With ALL of that said… like I said it’s really hard to say how this movie will turn out.  I’m not a “hater” on M.B. Jordan I just want a good casting.  I’ve seen too many bad CB movies to think studios really know best.  Other actors will always support each other so, you won’t hear any truth coming from them.  When it comes from the public it’s “fanboy” talk and quickly ignored.  So, here’s to an actual good Fantastic Four movie coming in 2015.  Good Luck!

Let’s hope it’s better than this piece of “unreleased” garbage.

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 2-26-14: Eternity Splinter Hero #2

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 2-26-14: Eternity Splinter Hero #2

*road to The Punisher*

It has been almost ONE Month since my last post.  Not too much has happened but let me give you a run down anyway.  During this time I took Luke Cage and Leveled him to level 30 and about halfway through leveling him I got this wild hair to get Iron Man to level 60.  He was level 50 at the time but I was really wanting to know what it felt like to have a hero at level 60.  It’s nice actually but no rest for the weary. (unleveled).  Pretty much after I got Iron Man to level 60 I started back to work on Luke Cage.  I got him were I wanted him and I still had like 30 some E. Splinters to get before I could get The Punisher (400 es)  I decided to work on leveling Deadpool towards 60 during that time.  Might as well right?  You get that extra SIF bonus.

It’s been really fun as of late with all of the holiday special stuff like Australian Day where we got Koala & Australian flag tokens to use at our crafters.  As well as Chinese holiday were we got a Chinese Lantern  & dragon statues to use at the crafter as well.  We also had Runewords and an Enchanter Crafter added to add even more LOOT depth to this game.  The extra items helped level mine up to 13 already.  But Runes are pretty rare.  The only place they really drop for me is in X-Defense.  (if you’re having problems finding any…)

Finally today I was able to accumulate 400 Eternity Splinters and purchase The Punisher.  In the title says “#2″, well if you remember Black Widow was my first Splinter hero purchase.

The Punisher is Hero # 19

Finally I get to show off my Punisher – Marvel Now! Costume too!

Now, I believe I will take the short route this next time and go for the Random Hero Box.  (175 es) If I get a dupe then I get a dupe.  I need that immediate satisfaction.  Waiting a month is torture.  Then after I dupe that one maybe I’ll save up for the next one.  Who that will be is still up in the air.  During that time I will attempt to level Spider-Man to level 30.  I would like to have his Dodge Synergy bonus.

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 1-27-14: Random Hero Box #7

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 1-27-14: Random Hero Box #7

*road to the box*

To get there I leveled Ms. Marvel up to level 30 and started work on The Human Torch.  Although getting Eternity Splinters was a main focus I had recently just got my Crafter to level 20 (max) and I could finally trade in some of those Duplicate costumes (3) I had for 1 random costume.  But the hard part was having to save up to 200,000 credits.  That took a fair amount of time to do.  But once I did I used the crafter to get me that random costume.  I was excited.  Although there was that possibility that I could by chance get one of the costumes that I’m using in the crafter.  I wouldn’t have been suprised if it was Iron Man – silver centurion armor.  but still I was excited to do this.  I haven’t seen a new costume since… well, since Christmas but before that was September 25th when I won Emma Frost in that Geeks With Wives giveaway.  Thanks again guys.  Good times.  so, on 1-15-14 I thew my 3 random costumes in the mix (2 – Iron Man Silver Centurion’s & Iron Man Stealth armor) and a few elements along with 2 Unstable Molecules.  I got plenty.  and what did I get?

Punisher – Marvel Now! Costume

I would show it off to you but unfortunately I do not have The Punisher.  Once I do you can count on me showing it here though.  I can’t say that I was disappointed.  I will have Frank Castle soon.  I know it.  With him I will have this new awesome costume to sport so, I feel pretty good about it.  Since I had received this costume It should have given me added incentive to save up the 400 Eternity Splinters instead of the Random Hero Box.  The temptation was too great to go for the cheaper solution.

I have 18 out of 28 characters and I’m sitting here going for a Random Hero Box.  The odds are stacked against me and I knew that going in.  I don’t know why I chose the RHB.  My formula said NO WAY!  But, at that moment I felt that even if I did get a dupe it would be cheaper than buying a dupe for raising an ultimate power.  So, on 1-16-14 I made the gamble.  I took my 175 splinters and gave them to Adam Warlock.  What did I receive in return?

Thor Duplicate Hero Token.  Random Hero Box #7 was a duplicate.  (followed by a duhhhhh!)

I let my gambling side take over.  I can’t say that I will win over next time either but I think I’m going to try and save up the 400 ES’s for The Punisher this next time.  Currently I have about 71 ES so, it will be a little while.  That is why I just decided to post this now instead of waiting longer.  Because I may take me another month to get 400 ES.  Who knows.

I just got The Human Torch to Level 28 so, I will finish him out for the time being to level 30 and I’ve already began work on Luke Cage.  I think he’s gonna be a fun one to play.  I can’t wait.  Also, I finally got my Dad on this game and he’s having a blast too.  This game spans generations.  Oh, and by the way Happy Australia Day!  Did you get your Koala’s and Australian flag’s?

My Marvel Heroes Diary for 12-30-13: A Hulk X-Mas and A Black Widow New Year

A Hulk X-Mas & A Black Widow New Year

As you may or may not know Gazillion was nice enough to give everyone gifts this year if you are playing the game.  In your email you should have received a code to Redeem that gave you a FREE “Holiday Hulk Costume”.  If you don’t have Hulk then you are just one costume richer.  But if you do have Hulk then Happy Holidays to you because you can now prance around Avengers Tower wearing your favorite Santa cap, complete with ripped red pants of course.

Another one of the gifts was a hat trick of goodies but you had to do something special to receive them.  Everyday that you logged in from the 22nd until the end of the year you can get these prizes.  But wait, it must be on the 2nd login of the day.  So, easy fix.  Log out and then log right back in and you get 10 Odin Marks, 10 Eternity Splinters, & 5 Cube Shards.  These are gifts that make me giddy!  Odin Marks will be useful one of these days.  I was able to use my cube shards and get even more Rarity & XP Bonus Boosts.  :/  with the Eternity Splinters I have decided to…wait I’m getting ahead of myself.

Let me back up to just after Christmas.  So, one of my fabulous gifts was a $20.00 Gift Card for Marvel Heroes.  They were having a 25% off Hero Bonus going on so the time was nigh to strike the iron.  My main focus was to pick up Hulk because of the X-Mas Costume that I had received.  (See Gazillion, good strategy there.  Give a costume away and people will buy the hero.  Not so much the other way around.)

Hulk!  He makes the count go up to 17 characters obtained.  17 out of 28

After the Hulk purchase I wanted to also make sure that I had my Hero Stash Tabs too.  I got everyone’s tab except for Cable.  Sorry Nate!  You’ll have to wait!  I wanted to get another General Tab but “G” restrictions did not allow me to.

.

So, as I was saying before I got ahead of myself.  I was able to accumulate more Splinters obviously by them giving out like 10 a day so, sitting at 17 out of 28 I knew my odds are very well against me getting a new hero with the Random Hero Box, so I waited the extra day and decided to save for 200 Eternity Splinters to buy the cheapest Hero remaining.  Black Widow sits at 200 eternity splinters and it only makes sense for me to get her now, because that will make my average price per remaining hero go up.  I have a formula that I use to help me decide whether I should go Random hero box or NOT.  I can give it to ya.

My Heroes divided by the total amount of heroes:

17 /28 = 0.6071

Then ONE minus that number:

1 – 0.6071 = 0.3929

Then ONE divided by that number:

1 / 0.3929 = 2.5452

That number multiplied by the cost of the Random Hero Box (175):

2.5452 X 175 = 445 (C)

We will call this number (C) and come back to this number.  Now get the average E. Splinter cost of the heroes that you have remaining.  Black Panther (400), Captain America (400), Colossus (400), Gambit (400), Ghost Rider (600), Loki (400), Punisher (400), Rocket Raccoon (400), Squirrel Girl (400), Wolverine (400)

Average = 420 and we will call this number (A)

If the number you came up with above (C) is less than the average E. Splinter cost of the heroes that you have remaining then you get the Random Hero Box.  If NOT then you should save up for the hero you want.

Example:

If C is < than A = Random Hero Box

If C is > than A = Save up

445 is > than 420 = I saved up and got Black Widow to enter 2014.

 Black Widow!  She makes the count go up to 18 characters obtained.  18 out of 28
