Avengers Academy: Best of 2017 Retrospective Mini-Event

Best of 2017

With 2017 having come to a close, the guys over at Tiny Co want to take a look back at all the events of the year and give the players who missed out on these limited characters. They did something like this for 2016 but this year is a bit different. The Best of 2017 retrospective pretty much has every unlockable character/costume behind the premium wall we all have come to know over the years that this game has been active. If I am being honest, last year’s method worked way better. There are two characters who are not behind that wall and one of the outfits is a craftable outfit but more on that later. Now onto the event!
