Marvel Avengers Alliance Developers Note: Introducing Season 2: Chapter 4

Written on Thursday, March 6, 2014

Hi agents! How about season 2 chapter 1 to 3. Playdom is going to release Marvel Avengers Alliance Season 2: Chapter 4 very soon.  Season 2 chapter 2 is coming with some new feature. In this post we are going to exclusive upcoming update of store.

Augmented Iso-8/Level 14

Season 2, Chapter 4 is finally upon us, and with it comes many exciting developments, including Level 14, which introduces a new way to upgrade heroes, Augmented Iso-8. The goal of Augmented Iso-8 is to offer players another vector for customizing heroes. While basic Iso-8 modifies a hero’s stats and Enhanced Iso-8 grant new passive effects, Augmented Iso-8 allow a player to customize a hero’s individual moves.

After two years of studying the effects of Iso-8 in the lab, Hank Pym and Reed Richards have discovered how to engineer Iso-8 that can safely augment heroes’ natural abilities. This Augmented Iso-8, or A-Iso, can be attached to a hero’s move, giving it new properties. Each Augmented Iso-8 can only be equipped to a certain kind of move, however. One might only modify Unarmed attacks, while another might modify only Energy attacks. Certain Augmented Iso-8 can only be used by a specific hero to modify one of their signature moves.

Each of a hero’s four move slots has one slot for an Augmented Iso-8. At level 8, a hero can equip one Augmented Iso-8 onto one of their moves. This can go into any move they have unlocked, but they cannot have more than one move equipped at a time. However, players can safely unequip Augmented Iso-8 from a move at any time, allowing them to equip a different move. At level 14, they can equip all four moves. This gives players a chance to experience Augmented Iso-8 early on, while still creating a powerful incentive to reach max level. See the next image for an example of a Level 9 hero’s Iso-8 tab. As you will notice, it says “0/1 EQUIPPED”. For a Level 14 hero this will say “0/4 EQUIPPED”.

Generic Augmented Iso-8 will be available from deploys across Season 2 and in the store along with a selection of premium Augmented Iso-8. Hero-specific Augmented Iso-8 is dropped from boss battles where the hero is a cameo.

For Chapter 4, the following heroes have Augmented Iso-8:
  • Union Jack
  • Red Hulk
  • Valkyrie
  • Angel / Archangel
  • Thundra
  • Black Panther
  • Spider-Man
  • Thor

While the initial offering of Augmented Iso-8 is limited, each new chapter will add more. We also plan to go back to previous chapters of Season 2 and add Augmented Iso-8 to the boss roulettes for the cameo heroes. This will be in a future patch after the release of Chapter 4.

For heroes that have multiple actions per action slot, an Augmented Iso-8 will affect every action in that spot, assuming that all the moves satisfy the requirements for the equipped Augmented Iso-8. This includes heroes that change classes like Omega Sentinel and Punisher as well as those with Mulit-Function moves. Certain moves such as Omega Sentinel’s and Punisher’s class change moves cannot have Augmented Iso-8 attached.

The Agent does not gain any Augmented Iso-8 slots. We find this a reasonable compromise as the Agent already has unparalleled opportunity to customize their move set with an enormous selection of gear.

Some of the Empowered Iso-8 we released in the past have had similar effects. When possible, we will be phasing these out and replacing them with Augmented Iso-8. To keep their purposes distinct, we want to make sure that Empowered Iso-8 are used to give new passive effects to heroes while Augmented Iso-8 are used to modify a hero’s moves. Examples of Empowered Iso-8 we plan on changing to Augmented Iso-8 are Black Panther’s Flashing Empowered Iso-8 and Phoenix’s Consuming Empowered Iso-8.

Speaking of Empowered Iso-8, here’s a list of characters that are getting new ones with Chapter 4’s release. We’ve listened to community feedback and gone back to old chapters to add Empowered Iso-8 to Heroic Battles that feature lockbox characters as villains.
  • Magneto
  • Emma Frost
  • Hulk
  • Sif
  • Cyclops
  • Colossus
  • Storm
  • Captain Britain
  • Mockingbird
  • Sabretooth
  • Dr. Doom
  • Moonstone

Check back tomorrow for more exciting updates on Season 2: Chapter 4.

Ok instead of doing this crap new iso-8's and what not, I would like better things to happen. 1) Another lvl for the flight deck a.k.a new upgraded to the ships. 2) Better pvp battles, I don't pvp because a lower lvl person with less armory equipment then I have can just cream me with 2 rounds. 3) Better drop rates in the roulette wheel, I know it's a computer but you can sit there and grind it out for day's and not get anything worth while. 4) Cheaper people a.k.a sale's or something to lower command points yea I know they do sale's with gold on some people but come on 23% off for a person that you have to use gold on which is still pretty high considering that the command points for it don't change only gold. I know these aren't gonna happen anytime soon or ever but it get's old real quick by not rewarding the hard work or the time players have put into this game and not to mention the money as well.
