On March 24th, as part of Patch 2.3, the wartable Marvel Avengers Will be redesigned to simplify tasks and improve the overall user experience.
The onboarding process for new players has also been reworked, which includes bringing Nick Fury back to the Helicarrier as a guide.
The first big change you’ll notice when interacting with the Battle Table on March 24th is that missions no longer change every 15 minutes. Instead, the drop zone and threat zone will always appear on the battle table, and once you reach an energy level commensurate with the range of the area it’s in, HIVES will appear.
Each region now has a minimum power level and a recommended maximum power level, and moving on at the recommended maximum power level, you will tour from region to region as your power increases.
The villain sector will now also be visible on the battle table, so you don’t need to get the quest chain from the faction quest provider. The normal villain department task chain rotates every day and receives it as usual, and the elite villain department rotates once a week.
At the battle table, the Vault is now always visible, and the Elite Vault rotates weekly.
Individual hero HARM rooms have a minimum energy level of 1, and Challenge IV will be part of the HARM priority rotation and will no longer be visible when completed.
With the update, the flashback missions that ended with a boss fight have been replaced by the Wasteland and Wakanda Threat Zone. This means that any flashback missions won’t end with the villain’s division boss fight. Rise and Shine will require you to complete a quest in Quickmatch, while the Hero Quest Chain, formerly known as the Iconic Quest Chain, will only be displayed on a per-hero basis.
The team at Crystal Dynamics will also be adding new missions to the battle table on March 24, including a new Vault and a villain division.
When Nick Fury returns to the Helicarrier, he will replace Jarvis and Maria Hill in a new tutorial video and narration in some missions at the beginning of the Avengers. While this is primarily for new players, existing players can go through the process with Nick Fury to catch up with him.
Finally, the team is making changes to patch 2.3 to provide clarity and properly explain systems, missions, and how to start the Avengers program’s journey. According to the developers, a series of quests or chains of quests that lead players through multiple quest types have been found to be confusing due to the minimal amount of direction.
