For Asgard!
November 22, 2019

Greetings Commanders,

This week's blog is... for Asgard! Thor, Loki, and Hela have two more members joining their ranks, and we've got the divine ability breakdowns for you. We've also got FOUR Blitzes in the pipeline you don't want to miss, a December calendar to keep your roster frosty, and a sonic tease for our next Legendary character. Now, watch your step, because we're traveling across the Rainbow Bridge to greet our next hero.


Heimdall

Descending into battle next for the Asgardians is Heimdall. Along with being the guardian of the Bifrost (the Rainbow Bridge that connects Asgard with Earth and the other realms), Heimdall is a fierce warrior who possesses senses that allow him to see across all realms. For the Asgardian team, he's a Brawler who smites enemies with heavy attacks, gives Asgardians immunity to Blind, flips enemy Stealth (turns it into Bleed), removes Heal Block, and grants Defense Up to all Asgardians on War Defense.

Strike down thine mortal foes with Heimdall's kit:


Traits: Hero, Cosmic, Mystic, Brawler, Asgardian


Basic - Hofund Slash

  • Attack the primary target for 310% damage
  • Gain an assist from an Asgardian ally

  • Clear Heal Block from self and all Asgardian allies

  • On War Defense, On Spawn, apply Defense Up to all Asgardian allies for 2 turns


Sif

Next up is Sif, the warrior goddess and swordswoman paralleled by few others in Asgard. Sif is the Protector for the Asgardians, and a particularly challenging Protector to deal with. Sif draws enemy fire with a low energy-cost Taunt, allowing you to Taunt nearly every other turn. She also fortifies her Taunts with Block and Deflect, and then makes enemies pay with Counter.

Build a wall around Asgard with Sif:

  • Gain Block Amount
  • Gain Block Chance for each Asgardian ally
  • On Spawn, gain Defense Up + 2 Deflect
  • On Turn, heal self for a percentage of Max Health + a percentage of Max Health per non-minion Asgardian ally

Asgardians & the Next Legendary Event

Heimdall and Sif complete the Asgardian team along with Thor, Loki, and Hela. Together, they ascend to be the gods of Alliance War Defense. But the halls of your Helicarrier aren't the only reason to summon the Asgardians to your roster. You'll also need this Asgardian team to recruit the next Legendary character: Black Bolt!

The King of the Inhumans, Black Bolt will royally change the landscape of MARVEL Strike Force with his new ability mechanic: a counter to Revive. His quasi-sonic voice is so powerful and destructive that enemies eliminated by Black Bolt cannot be Revived -- meaning that Minn-erva and Ultron should be on high alert. Dark Phoenix will be unaffected as she's a summon of Phoenix. We'll have more information on Black Bolt in the future, but until then, start gearing up your gods for his Legendary Event.


Thor & Loki Updates

The two senior members of the Asgardians are getting a slew of upgrades that'll add to their team synergy and balance. Thor and Loki will enjoy the same Passive ability heal that their Asgardian teammates enjoy, in addition to these changes:

Thor

Special - Hammer Throw

  • Increased damage and now chain to 3 adjacent targets for damage.

Ultimate - Lightning Storm

  • Increased damage and increased the chance to apply Stun to all additional targets.

Passive - God of Thunder

  • Added: On turn, heal self for 5% of Max Health + 5% of Max Health per non-minion ASGARDIAN ally.  When an enemy attacks an ASGARDIAN ally: Change Speed Bar by 5%, Gain +1 Charged, up to a maximum of 5.  On maximum Charged: Generate +1 Ability Energy for self, attack all enemies for 260% damage, remove all charged.

Loki

Special - Mind Control

  • Added:  On War Defense, with 4 or more ASGARDIAN allies, apply Taunt to primary target.

Passive - God of Mischief

  • Added:  On Turn, heal self for 5% of Max Health + 5% of Max Health per non-minion ASGARDIAN ally.  When an ASGARDIAN ally drops below 50% Max Health, apply Stealth to that ally.


Upcoming Blitzes

If you're experiencing clone-envy, you'll have two chances to remedy your symptoms with a double dose of Mister Sinister Blitz. Also in the mix for their own Blitz in the next couple of weeks are The Thing and Ronan, so don't let up after mingling with the Master Geneticist.

Snow Globe Calendar

Keep your Roster red-hot with our cool December calendar. Starting December 1st, log in every day for 22 days to earn at least 1 Snow Globe Orb per day, with each orb guaranteeing 3-5 shards of select marquee characters & 60K Gold.

Going Knowhere & Space Ace Legendary Event

The Space Ace Legendary Event is coming in for a landing soon, and to prepare for Star-Lord's arrival, we're having a Guardians of the Galaxy and Ravagers Bonus Event. Pop in your 80s mixtape and rock out while earning double the shards for Guardian and Ravager characters.

Next Update

Due to the American Thanksgiving holiday, we won't have a blog next week on November 29th. Our next update will be on Friday, December 6th, so check back then for all things MARVEL Strike Force.

Until next time…


Good luck, Commanders!
