VIDEO GAMES: Havok & Magneto Are New Playable Characters In Marvel AVENGERS ALLIANCE

I may be a week late but I wanted to finish the Spec Ops 6 & then throw some tips & pointers your way! Hit the jump to see how you can get Havok AND Mags in your hero roster, and check out some images too.

So Spec Ops 6: Cry Havok is well underway & I'm sure you guys are now wholly engrossed in it. Now what's unique about the SO6 is that not just one but two characters are up for grabs. The second one is not even a hero, but reformed villain Magneto! Cyclops' younger bro Havok, is of course the hero you'll receive at the completion of the 25 tasks.

This time around a new concept of Collections has been introduced whereby you need to collect magnetic lockboxes. These boxes contain comic covers along with other goodies. Collect 8 of these unique covers while completing 6 other separate tasks (that in turn, help you get more boxes) & add Magneto in your roster!

I've packed in LOADS of tips & images in my post at my blog which you can check out by clicking the link at the end of this article. All the best with the Spec Ops!


Hey, check out the Avengers poster & the The Wolverine minimalist poster I created!

He's not Cyclops guys. He's Havok! Cyclops' younger bro! :)

I really like that costume for Havok. It's like a cross between his classic suit, and his 90's one, pretty sweet.

I'm a MASSIVE fan of this game. I play it daily. Was a nice touch to have side missions this time around (despite constantly getting duplicates of comics). Havoc looks pretty crap but all these passives only add to how intricate the game has become since it started a year ago.

I've got most characters and hitting Diamond League (just about). PVP can be a bitch! But Tigra is cracking at the moment. It's just difficult to know which weapons to use and which heroes compliment each other.

It's addictive as hell.
njferns - 2/5/2013, 4:35 AM
If you guys wanna add me y'all can. I'm at level 209.

And yeah CraptainAmerica! It IS addictive! And PVP IS a biatch! I finished silver if you can believe it...At the very end (before it showed the usual technical difficulties crap) I was top 30%. How I went from there to below 35% in a matter of a min gawd only knows...
njferns - 2/5/2013, 4:35 AM
Sorry forgot my FB link. :P

To be fair I was at 15.3% two hours before it finished. I decided to gamble and go for another couple of fights. I got to 12.5% but that only meant that I could lose two fights before I was back to Gold League. I came back half an hour later and the AI had won another. I thought "sod it" and went for one more win. I managed it. So I shut off with one hour before it finished. Over night I lost two but won one, so I finished at around 13.8%.

It just amazes me how I struggle to get near a 1000 rating, but once there I win a lot easier. The key is to do as many fights as possible throughout the PVP season.

I use Tigra at Level 11 and a heroes and weapons that keep her alive and make her stronger. She annihilates an entires team. Even a team you think can't be beaten. She's been this season what Quicksilver was last season.

What's your set-up?

P.S. I'll add you went I get to a computer mate

Oh man I've changed my pvp team so many times as I change my clothes! pvp has been VERY crappy for me this season. no pair or strat seemed to work or if it did it wouldn't stick for long...

My P5 tac emma frost has been a constant. i started with mockingbird & her. but then found i was losing ALL def fights. so i used ghostrider n with him i only lost half the def fights. but then i started losing online fights! So then on the last pvp day itself i bought doc strange's tac modern costume. Started off good, then it went downhill.

I've decided I won't be aiming for any league higher than gold from next season on. just gonna aim for gold thats it. aiming for the higher leagues has just become a waste of time n energy.

OH! my weaps setup has sorta been constant towards the 2nd half of pvp too- das boot, QJ, dark sigil & scroll of melsalam.

Add me when u can bro, no rush... :)
njferns - 2/5/2013, 6:31 AM
PS i meant i've done these many changes in my pvp team ONLY in this season. up until now emma n mb have worked ok for me- managed to get in diamond easy.
CraptainAmerica - 2/5/2013, 8:38 AM
To be fair, I changed SO many times this season. I think you had both right. Most people have an attacking team for when they play and swap it for a defensive team when they are away.

I read a good article about how you should use a buffer/debugger, protector and an attacker. I have P5 Emma Frost as my debuffer (although her attacks aren't to be sniffed at) because of her 'cosmic power' and 'unlock potential' and my agent protecting, giving extra goes, countering and shielding. Tigra is my tank. Even against a scrapper she's crazy-awesome.

I use MFG (shield and extra goes), QJ (extra goes), Nanite gun (shield and counter) and The Knight (protect and counter). Extra goes seems to be the key. I sadly never got Dark Sigil but my 'scroll of angolob' didn't stay in long. They buff remover helps against Mod Dr Strange, who's about a lot, but I found it easier to get someone, like Tigra, who gets almost enraged before demolishing an entire team and getting more goes at, sometimes, 10000 a pop!

I don't feel bad giving away my team as Psylocke and Punisher are going to change this game completely in the coming months. I'll grab them when they're out and see what will happen. I'll need to play more often and see what the class of choice is amongst other players during the next season.

I'll add you soon enough.

@njferns...Sent you a friend request on FB...could definitely use more allies...this game is like crack...LOL
TheIconicMan - 2/5/2013, 11:15 AM
Oh come on! I don't even play this game anymore..
njferns - 2/5/2013, 11:29 AM
Guys if y'all are adding me it would be cool if y'all cud holler n lemme know y'all have come from CBM...thx. will be adding all requests so y'all can add away...

I play the game daily too, right now I am at the 188th level. What I find disgusting is how Magneto is won. Yo find lockboxes for a chance of a comic book cover or you open 10 at the same time to get a guaranteed cover. Everything normal until you find you can receive a repeated cover! I don't spend my energies and save lockboxes to get a duplicate, I feel cheated. Let's see if I don't have to spend much gold to have him on my team...
njferns - 2/5/2013, 3:08 PM
I know that sucks Merinator. But when you open the 10x's you always have a chance to get other goodies too- ISOs, currently unavailable weaps (a friend of mine got the Spec Ops 3 Cosmic Flare epic weap), weaps that are high in PVP bonus. Plus I've got 1 CP each in 2 10x's...So it's not all bad. The other crap can be sold for silver...
Bam - 2/5/2013, 3:38 PM
I play daily too, not too big on pvp though, my team is usually invisible woman and black pnther, she usually evades and sets up the instant forcefields, while Black Panther can attack a blaster up to 4 times with his panther stance, nothing but death all around
Merinator - 2/6/2013, 3:48 AM
Well, another 20 lockboxes, two repeted covers. With 83 gold I don't see how I will recruit him in time. If at least he is available fir command points later...
