Here’s your Marvel Contest of Champions news brief for Thursday, August 8, 2019.
Schedule Notes: Sunspot officially joins the contest and is the featured arena champ. Blue Team Cyclops is the 4* basic arena. AQ series ends.
Marvel Insider: Activities for X-Machina are live. This month complete Easy, Normal, and Heroic for points, as well as the 5th chain of the “Win Fights with a Mutant Champ” solo objective. Unfortunately, instead of a 2 or 3 star Warlock or Sunspot as rewards, only X-Men crystal themed bundles are available, so this might be a good month to save your points.
Kabam announced that starting in October, balancing for recently released champs will be announced prior to them hitting the basic pool. There will then be approximately 3 months of testing before the balancing goes live in-game.
Furthermore, Kabam announced both Annihilus and Human Torch will be receiving buffs.
Speaking of the Human Torch buff, you know no one in the community is more excited than Lagacy.
