Marvel Future Fight: 32 week update

This is my 32 week update

The second part of Infinity War was released as Version 4.1.

They launched new uniforms for War Machine, Hulkbuster, Star-Lord, Rocket, Raccoon, Dr Strange (350 Crystals!), Scarlet Witch, Cull Obsidian (Black Dwarf), and Ebony Maw. They also reduced the cost of several old uniforms to gold instead of crystals.

They launched Tier 3s for Iron Man and Spider-Man. To get the materials required, they opened up World Boss Ultimate for Cull Obsidian (Black Dwarf) and Corvus Glaive.

They revamped the Shield Lab. The deploy missions now give tokens for refreshing the store. The store only displays 6 items at a time and takes 6 hours to refresh. This was the biggest disappointment of the entire update. It makes it harder to get Gear Up Kits and Norn Stones. However, it has increased the ability to get Bios, if you have the gold.





Quicksilver also received a nerf to his 4th skill. It does about half the damage it used to.

The several week long event giving out 6* characters and one Tier 2 ticket continued.

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:

      • Universal Hero: ~25k
      • Combat Hero: N/A
      • Blast Male ABX: ~25k

      • Speed Hero: ~25k

Characters

Lvl 60 and Tier 2:

  • 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.
