As expected, the Youtube community jumped into Back Issues #3 as soon as it was released. Catch up on all the streams from Seatin, Lagacy, and KT1 before you tackle the content for yourself.
If you can’t digest an entire live-stream, Seatin has already broken out all the boss fights into a single video, and also highlights how you can easily defeat the hyper-regenerating Rogue.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t a clean release for Variant 3. RichTheMan covers the bug issues with Sentinel. Rich also released the mid-week episode of MCOC News, tackling the Namor/One Eye Open adjustment, Act 6.3 Beta and more.
Having issues with Uncollected Sunspot? Dorky Dave shows you how to take him down with Venom the Duck, Void, Captain Marvel and, of course, his girl Quake.
