Now that you’re up to speed on Incursions, let’s talk about our other brand new event type in Season 2 - Heroic Battles.

It’s well-documented that a lot of people on the MAA team read Marvel Comics. We all have our own favorite characters, stories, and relationships. However, given that we are pursuing a cohesive narrative in the game (and the larger MGU), we don’t always get to explore these relationships.

Heroic Battles

Enter Heroic Battles. A chance for a hero (or three) to break away from the rest of the group and pursue their own personal business. We’re really excited about that. It gives us a chance to get two or more characters we love in a private setting to really focus on how they interact with each other. You’ll notice the icon we used is one that matches the icon for the “Team” page button.

Heroic battles are also more challenging. Not only because the Agent and their items aren’t in these fights, but because we can set and balance the fights to a particular grouping of heroes and make them as tough or as easy as we want. A great example is the Mission 6 Heroic Battle - Cable & Deadpool vs. The U-Foes. All 4 of the U-Foes.

Well you know how it is with Deadpool around. I don’t want to ruin the entire conversation for you, but here’s a taste.

Alright, so then you jump in the battle with Cable & Deadpool against Ironclad, Vector, Vapor, and X-Ray. Punching and slicing and shooting.

With the win I’ve completed my first Heroic Battle of Chapter 1 and with my other accomplishments (such as deploys and tasks) I am 15% finished with Chapter 1 Mastery.

I recommend you level these heroes up if you want to win. If not, you’ll die, but that’s ok. Why? Because there is a ton of awesome unique dialogue written for each battle in the case you lose. So maybe you’ll be like me and you’ll actually want to lose each of these fights once to see all the dialogue.

In Chapter 1 there are 6 Heroic Battles (one in each Mission). If you’ve been paying attention, we’ve revealed a few of them already. They were Cable & Deadpool vs. the U-Foes, Gambit & Rogue vs. Prime Sentinels, and Wolverine vs. Sabretooth. You’ll just have to play Season 2 to see the other 3!

So that’s Heroic Battles in a nutshell. Dialogue-focused, character-rich combat experiences that will make fans of the comics and films ecstatic whether they win or lose.

I guess the reward in display in heroic battle is custom tsunami fist, but I think it will be great if playdom can think about better rewards for some battles and also better rewards in daily roulette..

eg: warbringer axe, savant's spear, scroll of angolob, etc.., which most of us did not get in roulette or at leas you can give these weapons at least to buy...

So you won't be able to participate in these battles if you f=don't have the heroes mentioned right? Tsk. More money for MAA I guess :D
