Marvel Avengers Alliance: Havok Changes Patch Notes

Havok recently got a "re-factor" and overall buff in Marvel Avengers Alliance. The biggest change is he now has a passive chance to gain an extra turn when an ally attacks!

It's especially good because his second and potentially most powerful attack, Plasma Wave, now gets paragon exploiter but also "Kicks like a Mule." So you can KO an enemy with a massive attack and still have a chance to not lose a turn.

Of course, there's also a bug fix that wasn't. Blackheart's summons for his bruiser form were supposed to have stopped healing, but I guess they never got the memo.

Here are the full patch notes:

Marvel Avengers Alliance: Spec Ops 11 Launches! Daimon Hellstrom Up for Grabs!

Marvel Avengers Alliance Spec Ops 11 just launched today and the hero to be recruited this time around is Daimon Hellstrom, a Blaster who gets bonuses when's he's debuffed... mostly by his own attacks.

You might want to hurry through the initial quests to unlock the group boss, Blackheart, because Daimon's sister, Satana, is the lockbox hero/anti-hero this time around. The faster you unlock the more spawns you can squeeze out.

Marvel Avengers Alliance: Hero Changes! Patch Notes - 7/05/2013

In a bit of poor timing, Playdom recently patched Marvel Avengers Alliance with some hero changes... about a week before the PVP Season is slated to finish.

Here're the highlights:

The changes effect some high-usage heroes like Rescue, Magneto, and Thor.

Specifically, Thor and Phoenix get a buff in that their respective group buffs are now quick actions that really wasn't needed (say hello to "Inspire Bravery" and "Thunder" in one go).

Magneto and Rescue on the other hand got hit with the nerf bat. Magneto's shield now has a duration and he does slightly less damage on his main attack. Rescue now only has a chance to remove buffs (70%) on each hero's turn and got an all around nerf on Reconstruction Matrix (it doesn't remove DoTs and heals/shields for less).

Also the Warbringer Axe is now better and worse (but mostly better), the buff now applies after the very first action rather than on the Agents turn (which means an attack buff straight away), but goes away once the Agent is defeated.

Here's the full patch notes:

Marvel Avengers Alliance: New Sponsored Covert Tasks

It looks like Playdom is trying something new for Marvel Avengers Alliance and adding sponsored tasks ("Sponsored Covert Tasks"). The new side task looks like it's sponsored by UL, whose certification you might recognize on some of your electronics and what not.

The tasks are pretty easy to do and you get a nifty device called a Charge Dissipator out of it that gives you a nice defensive passive buff (and 5% attack bonus) or a decent PVP bonus if you decide to slot it in your armory.

Here's the short task list:
