Marvel Future Fight: 24 week update

This is my 24 week update.

Version 3.9 was released launching Colossus, Angel, Magik, and Emma Frost. The Colossus event was quite good allowing me to recruit him and get 140 of his bios, which won't be enough to max his gears, but should make him usable with a MRUT. Angel looks to be quite good and is available thru a new dimension rift. Magik is behind the new X-Men bio subscription, and Emma Frost is available for crystals.

The have also launched a month long event giving out 3 x 6* selectors and one Tier 2 selector. Typical restrictions apply.

Sony Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi BDPS3700

As my BDP-BX110 was showing a black screen about a third to half the times a blu-ray was started and with the great black friday deals, I decided it was time to replace it. The question was with what model. I looked at several standard blu-ray players in the $50 range and 4k blu-ray players in $150 range. Considering the price difference of the players and the fact that 4k blu-rays cost more, those players were quickly eliminated. After looking at the online reviews from other users, I decided to go with the Sony BDPS3700.

TLDR: 4/5 stars

Pros

  • Small size and design
  • Remote can turn on TV
  • HDMI-CEC can control player
  • Includes Netflix and Amazon Prime Video

Cons

  • Occasional noise of spinning disc
  • Sometime takes a while to recognize there is a disc in
  • Brick style transformer plug

Design

I was was happily surprised by the fact that this player is smaller than my old one. The player is only about 9 inches wide, 1.5 inches tall, and 7.5 inches deep. I am also pleased that it has a flat top which makes it better for putting the dvd case on top of the player.
However, I was disappointed to find that it now uses a rather large transformer style plug, but at least the wire detaches from the back of the player to allow for cable routing.
The fact that the entire front plate aside from the buttons drops down when the dvd tray pops out is a cool factor. The only thing that would have been slicker would be if it was a slot loading.

Remote

The remote has shrunk quite a bit and the buttons feel a little bit crammed, but at least they fixed the creaking battery cover from the BX110.
BDPS3700 remote on left; BX100 remote on right


Wi-Fi

The wi-fi setup was fast and straight forward. The connection is strong, but I also keep it near the router :-)

Noise

Occasionally, the player makes a large amount of noise when spinning DVDs. It sounds like the disc is not quite balanced. I have not been able to pinpoint the cause. If I find more information, I will update the post.

Marvel Future Fight: 16 week update

This is my 16 week update.

Since my last update, version 3.7.0 had an update bringing new character Luna Snow. However, I was not even able to get her to 3* due to bad luck on the rng of farming her bios.

Also version 3.8.0 was released bring new characters Killmonger (bio sub), Klaue, and Shuri. It also had 3 new uniforms (Black Panther, Killmonger, and Shuri). I am using all my bio selectors on Shuri and should hopefully get her to 6* soon.

Alliance hit level 24 granting the extra Skill Cooldown, which has helped. I was also forunate enough to get a CTP of Transcendence, which I put on Spider-Man to help in ABX and Timeline battle.

Marvel Future Fight: 12 week update

This is my 12 week update.

Since my last update, version 3.7.0 was released bringing new characters X-23 and Adam Warlock. It also had new uniforms for Satana, Falcon, and Punisher.

I am holding onto my Tier 2 ticket for a couple days until I can max out Elsa's gears. My other option would be Hulk or Loki, but both can already clear World Bosses and a Shadowland floor I feel that it would be better used on another character.


Content:

  • Dr Strange: Farming Satana Bios (will use 5* rank up ticket on her, saving 4* ticket for Clea)
  • Wolverine: Quest complete
  • World Boss:
    • Unlocked Quicksilver
    • Recruited Quicksilver and all of the Black Order including Thanos
  • Shadowlands: Clearing 10 floors
  • Alliance Battle:
    • Can clear normal mode on all days except speed
    • ABX:
      • Combat Villian: ~15k
      • None: >100k
      • Universal Hero: ~25k
      • Combat Hero: N/A
      • Blast Male ABX: ~25k
      • Universal Villian: ~25k
      • Speed Hero: ~25k

Characters

Lvl 60 and Tier 2:
  • Sharon Rodgers
  • Iron Fist
  • Spider-Man
  • Thor
  • Wolverine (still needs gear and skill upgrades)
Ready for Tier 2:

  • Hulk
  • Loki
  • Captain America (will use materials)

Cards:

Crafted my first mythic card (Marvel Zombies), which was a nice upgrade. Will be going for a mythic Loki next and hope to get some more attack stats. I am still looking for a Groot or Star Lord 4/5 star upgrade as well. However, rolling the SCD has been challenging.

Marvel Future Fight: A beginners view

I have been playing the mobile game Marvel Future Fight for the last 2 months and wanted to share my impressions and knowledge. It plays very fluidly on my LG G5 with the Snapdragon 820. The game has lots of depth and different play modes.

Accomplishment

After 58 days of playing, I was finally able to clear 5/5 World Bosses, which prompted me to write this blog post. I have 15 x 6★ and 3 Tier 2s.

My Roster is:
TeamCharacterTier 2Rank/MasteryGearUniformRole
1Ancient One★★★★★★15NoneLead
1Sharon Rodgers★★★★★★20Starlight (Rare)DPS
1Crystal☆☆☆☆☆☆17NoneFill
2Iron Fist★★★★★★20Iron Fist (Rare)Lead/DPS

4Kate Bishop☆☆☆☆☆☆5NoneFill
5Spider-Man★★★★★★20Homecoming (Normal)Lead/DPS
5Thor☆☆☆☆☆☆20Ragnarok (Rare)DPS
5Black Bolt☆☆☆☆☆☆15NoneFill

Here is who each team took out
1: Thanos
2: Ebony Maw
3: Proxima
4: Black Dwarf
5: Proxima

My cards are nothing special, but my cards plus level 21 alliance give me 43.2% skill cooldown reduction (SCD), which means that I am slightly below the 50% cap after most characters gears. Ideally, I would like this capped on all characters.

Tips

Here are my tips for a newly starting player:
  1. Sharon Rodgers should be your main. Get her to T2 and get her uniform. Focus on her as she can clear lots of content quite easily.
  2. Start the "Hero's Journey" as soon as possible. There is no longer a "Journey of Growth"
  3. Start both Epic Quests as soon as possible. Save your Norn Stones and other materials for completing the quests.
  4. Get Sharon a good leader to really boost her damage to help you clear additional content. Ancient One and Starlord are 2 good options. You can also use Sharon Carter as support to get ~5% SCD if you are lacking there.
  5. Loki can solo Black Dwarf at T1. I use Ironman as lead to cap his SCD. Just keep your barrier up, stay out of trouble, and keep dropping your clones.
  6. If you get a card with SCD, I would equip it and then work on replacing it with one with better stats later. My top 4 cards are farmable from dimension rifts and can all get SCD.
  7. Get in an Alliance. The skill cooldown is a great boost, and you gain access to additional content like Alliance Battle that can get you some Norn stones and Bios.
  8. SHIELD Lab: Start upgrading the buildings as you have extra gold. Use gold to buy Norn Stones and Dimension debris and maybe some gear kits as you need them.
  9. Buy the "Stark's Stash" for $3.49. You will get VIP Level 1 for doing this. It will over double the gold you can earn from Co-Op play and have your dimension rifts drop more dimension debris.
  10. Run Co-Op play on Quick match, you should get a minimum of 20% for each character you use and don't have to worry about getting kicked by the leader
  11. Increasing the number of 4★ Level 40 characters you own will increase the quality of rewards you can earn in Co-Op. However, it also increases their cost.
    • Stage 1: Don't Remember (Costs 2? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 2: ~160k gold (Costs 4? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 3: ~240k gold (Costs 8 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 4: ~315k gold (Costs 12 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 5: ~400k gold (Costs 14 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 6: ? gold (Costs 16? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
