I so, U so, we all SCREAM for ISO!
Ok, that was lame…
Welcome back to Marvel Strike Force (MSF) Mondays. Each week we break down one more aspect of the hottest mobile game, Mobile Strike Force!
Well MSF community, was this the greatest update in Mobile Strike Force history, I think so! ISO 8 is ALL the rage. It seems like all the fears of MSF ending up like Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes (SWGOH) was overblown. This mod system is great! And the campaign nodes were fun and I like the mad Scientist Supreme storyline. Just top-notch mobile gaming entertainment!
There is no shortage of ISO 8 videos since it dropped, but here is a nice concise video by McMole and all you SWGOH defectors know McMole well!
There is also a nice little Google Sheet that Remanex has floating around that will help you place the right ISOTOPES on your characters.
We also have a Campaign unlock event coming up for SCREAM!
Here is a good video on the event by Mr. FTP (free to play) on how to maximize this event!
He also touches on a lot of reasons why Campaign events are the best unlocks!
Early Grind, Then Cruise Control
So when the Campaign begins, you will need to assemble your team and power through the nodes. You will have to enter the nodes and hopefully you have a team that can at least auto fight and win. Mr. FTP breaks down the best characters to use and how powerful they should be. But you will need to grind through all the nodes and unlock as many as possible with 3 stars so then you can go in each day and cruise control with auto win for your daily energy!
When you do this, make sure to always go to your furthest progression point and work backwards. As you collect orb shards I recommend to hoard and opening all at once, but I get it, we play a game on our phone cause we are all about the quick fix!
So do what you want with your orbs? MR. FTP says your goal should be 4-star Scream and you could possibly get 5 star with lucky pulls. But don’t be dismayed if you don’t get all Scream orbs, because there are a lot of other characters worth getting through these orbs.
Save on Other In-Game Currency
MR. FTP points out that there are a handful of characters that will save you having to spend valuable in game currency to purchase if you get them through this event:
- Mr. Sinister – War
- Carnage – War Store
- Graviton – War
- Deadpool – Arena
- Human Torch – Arena
- Quake – Arena
- Rocket – Raid
The real high hopes here have to be the War Store gang. War store currency is so valuable and you can get so much good gear if you can gain the character shards elsewhere. You can also invest the War store currency on X – 23!
Here are the characters that you can save on time:
- Ms. Marvel
- Ghost Rider
- Green Goblin
Quake just got added to a node and Green Goblin is now in two nodes. However, if you can get characters shards for them in these events you can farm other hard to get characters like Shocker, Mr. Fantastic, and Vision.
Not to mention if you are pushing for upcoming Legendary events, you can maybe get ahead of your farming time table!
Well I hope this helps you take your Squad from a D+ to a B- Commander!
Blitz: Monday is everyone’s favorite sharpshooter, Bullseye. And we get lucky on Thursday with Domino!
Events: SCREAM. If you didn’t watch the video, you need characters with the Metamorphosis tag. The dream team for this event is the 3 existing Symbiotes: Spidey, Venom and Carnage, along with Emma Frost and anyone with Marvel in her name. Mr. Sinister would be good as well.
