Marvel Avengers Alliance: Gold Gear: Traumatic Post

Traumatic Post

Playdom-Disney (P-D) has bottled Emma Frost up in the Traumatic Post – minus all her sexy, sass and brilliance. Oh Playdom! [sigh]

Now you can bench Emma. Really?

If you didn’t get Emma in Spec Ops 2., now you can buy a piece of the sky pie and leave your regrets behind. Maybe.

Is it worth 64 Gold?

Beyond the nice play on words – post and trauma, players are rightfully concerned that if Mental Anguish does Mental Scarring, this is one of the worst limited edition offers for P-D to push out via the store.

Unlike Emma, the Traumatic Post’s version of Mental Anguish does not penetrate the Force Cage. Though it does reach beyond Captain America’s Shield Guard.

Considering that the damage of the Traumatic Post is underwhelming – the Traumatic Post should lay out a Migraine with the Mental Anguish.

Hero School Valuation:
12 (Twelve) Gold

Unless P-D adds Migraine (or Blindness – think brilliance) to the Traumatic Post, the Hero School must valuate the Traumatic Post at 12 Gold. No more and, quite possible, much less.

Marvel Avengers Alliance: Future Foundation: Spiderman

Spiderman Uniform: Future Foundation

The white, Future Foundation uniforms are cause for much brow-brau lifting. Now Spidey has one too. He’s ready to join the striking yet ambiguous sexual orientations of the future. Or Berlin’s red light district.

Whichever excites you the most.

Makes you wonder about the office parties at Playdom-Disney. Don’t it?!

If Stan Lee is hanging with Woody Allen, everything kinda makes sense.

Is it worth 66 cp?

After team up with Spiderman, Gambit threatened to quit SHIELD due to his alleged “discomfort” with tingling sensations. “It just ain’t right or funny!” Gambit was quoted saying to Nick Fury.

Going from the black suit to the white suit is a big let down. That’s what Peter Parker reportedly said. In fact, SHIELD research shows a dramatic drop in damage output since Spidey got the tingles.

If P-D added Dizzy or Slowed as a passive add-on to some of Spiderman’s attacks (hey now – Spidey can strut and pole dance with the best of ’em), the “Bitte, baby” uniform would make sense. Or if a team had five heros – not just three.

Hero School Valuation:
48 (Forty-eight) cp

Unless P-D adds Dizzy or Slowed as a passive improvement of Spidey”s feeble attacks, the Hero School must valuate Spiderman’s Future Foundation uniform at 48 cp. No more and, quite possible, much less.

Marvel Avengers Alliance: Gambit: Special Powers: Ragin Cajun

Gambit

Monster trucks, gumbo, and Gambit go together like Apple Pie a la mode with a slice of processed, cheddary-like cheese melted over top.

All of which may explain why Gambit makes some monumentally huge bad decisions. Or not.

Beyond Remy’s lack of common sense and abstract logic, it must be said that Gambit is a beast.

Is Gambit worth 90 cp?

The analysis is here.

Hero School Valuation:
90 (Ninety) cp

Honestly, leveling Gambit up to 12 has not been an exasperating chore. It’s even been fun at times.

Assuming Playdom-Disney does not nerf Gambit like they did to Emma, Black Panther, and others AND they make it so that Royal Flush does, infact, debuff the targets, Gambit is worth every cp in the 90 cp price tag.

However, player be warned. P-D tends to nerf new heroes within days to weeks of release.

    • Stan Faryna says:

      Traumatic Post might be a cute PVP trick and 20k+ bonuses will boost the damage. How badly do you need a cute trick? [grin]
