  1. The matchmaking in this is still so incredibly bugged. I finally get into a 4 person group doing quick action, but the game fails to actually load a mission from any of the other three people. I try again, one person joins in the lobby, but there’s weird visual corruption over where the mission name should be and eventually he leaves. I try again, one person joins, then suddenly we’re joined by two AI companions in the lobby, and I can’t start a game and neither can the other person. I go in again, I’m immediately joined by three AI companions, and can’t do anything despite it saying it’s tryi
  2. This is still a total shitshow. Menus still don’t work, sometimes the comics don’t appear, and the sound still stops working in them randomly. You still see your team at the start of the mission on the ground for a second before the mission cutscene kicks in. I just did a one player mission as Cap with Ironman, Thor, Ms Marvel and...ironman. Which is a new bug I haven’t seen before. Annnd, the big one, matchmatching is still screwed. Even choosing the quick match option, you won’t get more than 2 other people joining you, tops. How is something so intrinsic to the game
  3. Just managed to finally get one through AO, so if anyone is trying and the site keeps falling down, be persistent. Strangely, they tell me they'll get it to me tomorrow- obviously their website isn't set up for preorders properly lol
  4. Thanks, I'll just have to be patient and wait then, especially since I'd rather order through Amazon- I missed the announcement last night and didn't think the pre-orders would be coming out so soon.
  5. What are the chances of retailers like Amazon getting more stock allocated? Is it likely that they're totally sold out for launch now and won't get any more?
  6. There’s no way it’s going to come close to fixing all the bugs though- there are literally hundreds. Every time I play the game, I notice new ones. It’s going to take ages for them to fix them all, let alone any optimisation that sorely needs doing (if they even can do anything to fix the performance issues). And the matchmaking issues remained from the beta, so I’m not sure that’ll be fixed any time soon. Today I had the sound cutting out in the menus, noticed that when you get the notification about a hero dying it usually mentions the wrong one, enemies I had to kill on the unde
  7. Haha really?? You can’t replay campaign missions to get the intel you missed?? Yeah you get additional comics from chests and also from mission rewards (the ones that you can repeat), which obviously then allow you to get multiple copies to increase the bonus. Did you know that the different statuses you can infect enemies with are grouped into two different categories? And that once an enemy becomes infected with one type, if you hit him with the other type, he’ll take increased damage? I’m not sure it tells you that anywhere in the game.
  8. Priority faction missions aren’t locked behind faction rank though are they? Or at least the only ones I’ve seen aren’t. And artifacts are the only items which aren’t looked behind rank either. So really there seems to be no real benefit to do it other than the level up rewards, which seem pretty minor (apart from the odd pattern). Surely they must have been meant to do more than this originally? Or maybe they’ll be adding something later, but again it just smacks of how half-baked the game is.
  9. Like the shield mission chains? Yeah they have specific rewards (usually patterns or rare resources), but levelling up the factions themselves seems to offer no purpose other than being able to buy more stuff. I know you get the benefit of each faction specialising in certain stats, but that’s such a small thing that it can’t have been all they were originally supposed to do. Even the main menu options of the campaign or the avengers initiative (multiplayer) are odd- when you’ve completed the campaign, clicking on either one gives you exactly the same options, so why have they been
  10. Well, tbh pretty much everything about the game is broken so it’s not surprising. I’ve discovered that if you cancel matchmaking (say because you get matched with super high level people), and then match make again, the other three slots vanish so presumably you’ll never find anyone. You have to reload like the carrier or ant farm and then try it again. You also get text overlapping text in the loading screen of the quinjet, and when you finish a mission, if you complete more than one objective by having done that mission, any audio just plays over the top of itself. It’s basically jus
  11. I do exactly this (it’s on the Starz channel), it’s well worth the £5 per season I’ve basically paid to watch it.
  12. Hahaha I did that mission tonight, and whilst I didn’t have that bug, for me he gave the whole speech without opening his mouth lol
  13. It’s so weird because some aspects of it are great- as Thor, you can throw Mjolnir and actually pin enemies to the wall or floor, and have control over when you recall it. As cap, you can kick your shield as it returns to you to bounce it off more enemies. I almost feel sorry for the people who put stuff like that in the game because there must be team members who genuinely want to provide a great superhero experience. But even if you put aside the GAAS elements, and even the shockingly terrible frame rate, there are SO MANY BUGS. Even the menu doesn’t work properly- so
  14. I can’t my head around why a game built on skins has so few of them- most of them are just pallet swaps, and some of them are terrible. There’s one for Thor where is looks like a pound shop costume where the wig comes stuck to the helmet.
  15. It’s definitely fun in bursts, especially if you have an attachment to the superheroes. But only really if they sort out the frame rate. I just can’t see how there’s any long tail game here though. The missions are so incredibly samey, as are the level assets. And with the gear pieces, there doesn’t seem any way to change the type of random stat bonus on them, and those can be pretty important to your style of play. So it’s going to be very frustrating at higher levels waiting til you get a powerful piece which actually has the right stats for you. And although there are maybe a co
