Quoted from branlon8:
hey all, not a member yet, but I think soon - can somebody explain the team ups - seems like an interesting addition to the battle modes, but I'm not clear how they work - can you have a team up with several characters at once or only one at a time ? So each team up character has a shot which qualifies them (before the mode), but do you have to keep shooting the team up shot to keep it afloat (maintain their health?) during the battle mode ?
I’ll do my best to explain team ups:
+ you can qualify as many team up characters (Dazzler, Colossus, Wolverine, Domino) as you want prior to starting a battle.
+ any Team ups qualified will be shown with the blue insert lit solid and that characters health bar on the display will be full.
+ the team ups do two things; 1. They add an additional shot to your battle for additional damage and 2. They give you some kind of perk (i.e. Wolverine grants double damage for all lit battle shots making it easier to win a battle).
+ no need to continue to keep shooting the team up shot to keep it afloat.
+ once you start a battle, you will lose any team ups once the battle is complete or if you lose your ball.
+ lastly, it takes 2 shots to one character to qualify them as a team up. This gets progressively harder once you’ve used them in a team up in battle. For example, you can make 2 dazzler shots and 2 domino shots and have dazzler and domino in your first battle. Then, it’ll take 3 shots (I believe) to those characters if you want to qualify them for the next battle; since Collosus or wolverine haven’t been qualified yet, they’ll be 2 shots to qualify still even if it’s on your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc... battle until you use them, then they become harder to be qualified. This plays a lot of strategy into the game as you can try to beat battles early on without team ups at the beginning then use them later qualifying them easier for the 2nd stage battles vs Sauron.
