I like the new events & think they are a step in the right direction. That being said, alot of us don't get the full experience from them due to us being 85, because we can just autobattle them.
A great solution would be providing a preset/pregeared squad tailored to the event. This would still let everyone have access while letting them experience other toons they may not own. It may require more balance testing than the current system, but it would allow us to get more out of these events that you spend the time to develop. You could even provide a small pool to choose from for some events.
Is this something you would consider looking into @CG_CapGaSP @CG_TopHat
