Greetings Commanders,

Red Hulk

Red Hulk is charging toward a battlefield near you soon, and today, we're going to meet the monster leaving a wave of Gamma radiation in his wake. As we mentioned in a recent blog, this raging red giant is Apocalypse's War Horseman and he'll be leading the Gamma team to Alliance War supremacy. We'll have details surrounding the War Scourge Event in the future, for now, it's time to see what happens when Red Hulk gets angry…

General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross spent years pursuing the Hulk, an obsession that eventually led to the death of his daughter, Betty. He allied himself with the supervillains Leader and M.O.D.O.K. in a pact to seek vengeance against the Hulk in exchange for bringing Betty back from the dead. Using the Hulk's body and energy, Ross was transformed into the monstrous Red Hulk – a red-skinned beast with similar size and strength to that of the regular Hulk. Unlike the Hulk, Ross can consciously transform into the Red Hulk, along with possessing the powers to absorb energy and emit fiery Gamma Radiation.

Red Hulk is the Legendary Brawler for the Gamma team and features high Damage and Health stats. He crushes foes with big attacks, clears enemy Revive Once, and applies negative effects, including Trauma and Heal Block. In Alliance War, this red menace grows even more powerful. Along with damage reduction for himself and Gamma allies, Red Hulk also has a powerful Charge Mechanic in War that fills up his Ultimate's Ability Energy. His Ultimate Ability, "Meteor Crash," is where you'll find Red Hulk's devastating Gamma Radiation Battlefield Effect.

Battlefield Effects are a new ability mechanic being introduced with Red Hulk. They're applied to a specific side of the battlefield (enemy side or the player side), last until the end of the match, and each side can only have one active Battlefield Effect.

Red Hulk's Gamma Radiation Battlefield Effect is applied to the enemy side of the battle and causes enemies to be attacked and gain 3 Bleed on their turn.

Update to Event Start Times

Since the launch of MARVEL Strike Force, we've typically had events start at 5:00PM (PDT) Pacific Time. Going forward, we'll be updating the start times of select events to 2:00PM (PDT). 5:00PM (PDT) is typically the end of the work day for most of our team, so we expect that the earlier time will increase the quality of events by giving us more time and resources to address event details and issues that may arise the day they occur. This update, along with several updates to internal processes, is to put a greater focus on game stability and a smooth play experience.

War Updates

We are excited to inform you that there will be a blog on Saturday, August 27th at 1:00PM (PDT), laying out changes that will be coming to war this season which starts at 1:00PM (PDT). There will be an increase to War rewards as well as buffs to some offense teams! Please check back Saturday for the juicy details.

Red Star Availability

Power up Deathlok and Valkyrie with their upcoming move to the Elite Store. Starting on August 30th at 5:00PM (PDT), you'll be able to promote these two characters one Red Star higher than their current rank using Silver and Gold Promotion Credits.

Power up the relentless Ultron with his 6th Red Star, entering the store on August 27th at 5:00PM (PDT) at the cost of 3,500 Dark Promotion Credits.

Character Availability

The Current Raid Season ending on September 4th at 2:00PM (PDT) will be the last season to get Ghost-Spider character shards in the rewards. We intended her and Silver Surfer to be a special reward in the raid season milestones, so going forward we do not plan to put another character in.

On August 30th at 5:00PM (PDT) the Houngan Supreme, Doctor Voodoo, will be replacing Hand Sentry on Mystic Node 1-6. Hand Sentry will go into the Arena Store for 250 Arena Credits.
