Injustice Mobile 2.0: Of Zatannas, Atrocitus and Bears, Oh, My!

Yesterday, WASDuk covered an unconfirmed rumor regarding the possibility of Atrocitus making his debut as the second unique Injustice mobile 2.0 card-fighter. However, the article attracted a slurry of responses that prompted WASDuk to issue the following picture with the hashtag #WTFnetherrealms:

Untitled

Evidently, nobody really knows what will happen. As of it being Friday over here in the Asia-division of WASDuk, no new Challenge Stage or update has been offered by NetherRealms. Thus, WTF? Regardless, here is what’s floating around the e-universe.

1) Redson Deathstroke or Wonder Woman 600 Will Repeat

While “newbs” may love this scenario, it also begs the question as to why a Challenge Pack was released. Granted, a number of packs costing 150,000 credits each would have to be purchased to get any Challenge Stage card-fighter to Elite VII, but most grinders and hackers don’t really care, as it gives the game its own unique missions: Challenge Packs until every card-fighter contained is Elite VII.

2) A Slew of New Characters

The most favorable scenario thus far has come from the mysterious user known as Thanos:

Android update will be released alongside with the iOS 2.1 update. With 5 new challenge characters, multiplayer bug fixes, and lose data bug fix. Probably after this Darkseid Challenge. AND, the new Challenges will probably be Ares, a new skin for Shazam, Killer Frost, Zatanna and another skin for Joker or Superman. This information came out on Injustice: iOS Alliance Credits Facebook page, it was posted by a guy who works at NetherRealms. You’ll get your update this month!

Guys from NetherRealms, whoever they may or may not be, is hit and miss at best. Shazam was announced by such an individual months ago, but he never appeared until the mobile 2.0 update. Undoubtedly, such a huge update would feed the salivating non-hackers and fans out there, but whether or not such a huge offering is on the horizon is still unconfirmed. Information from the Facebook page Injustice IOS Alliance Credits has always been reliable, as some of the most skilled Injustice players and theorists on Earth are members. At this point though, we’ll believe it when we see it because NetherRealms have changed their plans at the last second before.

3) Atrocitus!

This is the least likely of the possibilities for the next Challenge Stage. Obviously, adding Atrocitus would send shock-waves of excitement through both the DC Universe and DC’s kingdom of fans. However, at best, we won’t see such a occurance until 2016, which is when the sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us will launch.

Again, WTF, NetherRealms? Ares, Zatanna- Look, just give us something new. Otherwise, the Android users will remain devastated and longing for the new multi-player update, hackers will continue to occupy the online arena with level 2 Gold Cards armed with hacked Gear that gives “x 2,000,000%” to basic damage, and non-hackers who find any rumor better and more interesting than anything NetherRealms can offer may just walk away.

    Great article Chris, we needed something like that, you sum up exactly what we are feeling of all this hit and miss that NR is having, I don’t know if, is because we are near summer, many of those guys went already to take vacation to Island of adventure on Disney World or, best of cases in Vegas, doing shady hangover-stuff like, either case, this dumb bitches need to understand 2 things: 1 if they can’t handle something this big, pass the torch to a developer who can. 2 the mobile version is giving tons and tons of money to developers, if that wouldn’t be the case we wouldn’t be here talking, so, if you’re receiving it on your hand, THEN DO SOMETHING but do it RIGHT. How many times are we going to remain passive for characters that we can’t use? (RS Lantern, Batman, Silver Aquaman, Raven and Hawkgirl) and we know they exist (at least since Nov 2013) instead of remaining loyal to the brand, I really want to erase the game and forget about it, too much frustration because somebody there can’t do their job right, or has the FB as a shield so customers can say whatever they want and vent their frustration without any kind of answer. Fact is this guys doesn’t do anything, not even any article or any kind of interaction with the fan base since May, still they brG about numbers and money, guess what? Those numbers are the same people that you’re stabbing heartlessly, that’s all, thanks again for this awesome article, this is more or less the type of empathization or closure that I needed, and to know that I’m not alone, but we are thousands that have the (almost) same point of view.

  • Thanos

    Look at this images: here you can see that there IS an existing ares card, a killerfrost card, regime shazam and the new red sons. So why netherrealms are always delaying the challenges?! Just give us shazam! Ares!!! WTF netherrealms …

    • Batman

      Its fake smart 1

      • Thanos

        No, it’s not fake, it’s a hack. Just search it on YouTube. Hackers are able to find characters that weren’t released yet. Lot of people have already faced red son batman and green lantern on online battles, and ares and killerfrost are already on the game codes, but if you hack the game and buy them, nothing happens, because they are incomplete…

        • N. A

          looked in the code and they’re all there. Though presumably they’re not complete. I wonder what their stats/passives will be. I’m hoping both Ares and Shazam Regime have epic imba passives haah.

          • Thanos

            Yeah, I’m waiting for ares since last year! He needs an epic passive with stats better than shazam and darkseid!

        • Batman

          that’s weird

  • Jerome

    Been waiting for the android update since it was released for ios.but when may ended i pratically got f*cked up.i thought of buying an itouch just to play it on iOS but too obsessive.i understand what netherrealms is going through but they still need to commit to what they promised

  • Psychobillynerd

    I feel like a junkie, been checking for android update every couple hours since June 19th. This is the only mobile game I care about thats not on a handheld. I’ve supported Ed Boon since MK1, not gonna lie I’ve collectively dropped like $30 on this game. I’ve put in at least 150 hrs of battles and grinding, a much better value than investing in a trendy $65 AAA title & beat it in 10 hrs. I randomly help my son with Injustice online battles on his ipad mini, it only works half the time..so I wouldn’t mind a refined experience on Android but the wait sure is agonizing.

  • Thanos

    It looks like WB are too busy with Lego batman 3 and arkham knight, while netherrealms are busy with the new mortal kombat and they might have just a small group working on the mobile injustice game. They don’t give a F**K about the mobile game! And that’s why android update and the new challenges are getting delayed…

    • Psychobillynerd

      We probably won’t see anything on ios or android until Thursday, which sux considering how any players have made at least one micro transaction. If android does not update by July 4th, I’ll refuse to buy MK: X at launch & buy from EBay when its half price.

      • Thanos

        Yea, netherrealms have like 2 weeks to update… Or they might lose half of their fans. I know that this is just a free mobile game and they are working on something else but, they don’t even listen to their fans! Netherrealms or WB, they never awnser the questions of the fans!!!
        They just said once: “the android update will come out very soon thanks for waiting…” Why not give us a date or something ?

  • George Boulos

    As pain staking as the wait can be, i usually take it as a good sign. Whenever we have to wait this long in the past it usually means that NR is working on an update, an update will most likely introduce new characters or at least new character challenges. Either way, it will be nice to not just get another character repeat challenge, according to a lot of the sources i read online about this game, it might be taking a while cuz NR is still working on fixing their mistakes with the MultiPlayer mode having banned so many legitimate non hacker players and people who lost their accounts to WBID failures, as well as deal with other bug fixes with the multiplayer that people have learned to abuse ( the season rewards trick), and finally continue to still install parameters for the hackers to get kicked out of multiplayer.

    as big as the fanbase for this mobile giant. and as much as its continued to grow, you gotta imagine NR was never prepared to keep this mobile game in constant production and development for this long, and they have to continue developing new blockbuster giants especially since new gaming consoles came out last year and they need to keep their edge in the market, One such major known about project is the new Mortal Kombat, which they are working on as well as a plan for a sequel to injustice by 2015/16 . I have heard from sources that the 2.0 update that introduced a slew of new characters, online mode, and gear, was never the original plan of NR, but was produced to accommodate the large and growing fanbase for this game, which worked in generating even more players and fans of this mobile giant. Also, think about how much money they could possibly make from this mobile game still, hackers have hacked the hell out of it, and if not, there has been a hundred and one little cheats that we have discovered through the corse of the game( Time glitch, challenge glitch, season rewards), and if not that, the majority of the players would still rather grind in the game then ever put up money on an IAP for credits or energy. So they aint really profiting from this game, everything they have done recently has been purely to satisfy the fans. Considering all this, how many people at NR could they possibly have working on this game still, knowing they aint making money, and needing to work on their future projects to keep the company still in market, all while still trying to not let down fans. my bet, is not much, not because they might not want to, but really cuz they cant spare the manpower. SO really, be PATIENT people, the fact that they are still doing anything, is a credit to them and their work towards their fans.

    One final note, and thats that we know ( from hackers) there are definetly more characters in the game that have not been released yet like Ares, killer frost, as well as other versions of existing characters. And what i would like to point out is that these characters have existed in the game well before the large 2.0 update that introduced new character skins, multiplayer and gear ( and we know this cuz hackers have had ares and red son batman and green lantern for 6 months now at least, as well as these characters existing in the console game from the get go) . So the fact that NR didn’t release all these characters with their huge 2.0 update, and decided to put out new characters, is a good sign that they still have some sort of the long term overarching plan for their mobile thriller, and considering all the other facts presented, you gotta respect NR for keeping a mobile game exciting to its fans for going on a year and a half now.

    Sorry to blab too much ( as i usually do ). but again, be patient, it will be worth it.Unless your a hacker, you can always be doing a little grinding in the meantime :)

  • Thanos

    Hey guys new update is out!!! Well at least for ios. And it has killerfrost, new gear, luchadore bane, arkham origins deathstroke, and red son batman as new challenges!

    • Ammunized

      I got the update too! But where are the new characters and/or challenges?

      • Thanos

        They will come soon. Maybe today or tomorrow… I don’t know

      • Thanos

        New gear!

    • Lahing Bikolnun

      Hmm, on this side of the planet I got that “Servers are currently down” notice for the online battle. Are you able to play online or am I to expect the same problem last time?

      • Thanos

        I’m playing online right now and it looks ok, but there are some people on Facebook that are with the same problem as you… It might be the place you are or something.

        • Lahing Bikolnun

          Lucky me… just when in a matter of hours I will collect the prize for the upper 1%. I hope they release a bug fix soon.

  • Thanos

    They added batgirl gear and killerfrost gear to the game, regime superman special 2 is now fixed, zod passive is fixed and doomsday special 2 was deceased. Now, every hacker that has more than 300 gear score will do normal damage instead of the absurd ones. And you can get darkseid, 600wonder woman, boss Grundy and containment doomsday from challenge packs.

    • Alchemy Sol God

      I have gone through roughly 150 Challenge Booster packs and not a single Boss Grundy or Containment Doomsday. Are they that rare?

      • Thanos

        Hmmm… They might be rare, or maybe you didn’t have lucky… But have you got darkseid or 600 Wonder Woman? These ones I’m pretty sure are available in the packs now.

        • Alchemy Sol God

          I bought over 500 packs now. I am 100% sure Doomsday and Grundy are not in it. Darkseid and Wonder Woman are. I thought about contacting support about it but I have been too busy/lazy.

          I saw on other websites people saying they were in the pack. But I can’t see how I would not get either out of opening 500. That is rediculous odds. Until someone says they actually got them I can safely say they aren’t in it. Or if they are, the rate is between .01% and 0.5%.

  • Psychobillynerd

    Once again Android is IGNORED! Know that I think about it…I remember looking into this game before I downloaded it 8 months ago, Nether Realm Studio developed it exclusively for IOS a year prior to that. A much smaller company was given the task to port the ios exclusive across Android devices/platform. It could explain why our Android version is merely a shadow of something familiar in comparison. I assume they didn’t expect the PLAYSTORE version to do well eaither, seems unprofessional to me. If you guys think NR doesn’t make decent bank on the mobile versions and benefit from it greatly in some manner, then that’s just plain ignorant. Nothing is completely free, even if 1 out of every 10 make a single in game micro transaction that’s a minimum of $3-$5. Consider how many people downloaded this across both platforms..do the math!

  • Thanos

    Just got a pic of luchador bane and AO deathstroke. Deathstroke has more health, but bane has more damage. Don’t know his passive… But it looks like this new bane is much better than the normal one!

  • Thanos

    Hey guys, if you want to know the upcoming challenge characters passive sand stats go to the gamefaqs injustice ios board. A hacker posted AO deathstroke and luchador bane passives and stats there. And man, they’re overpowered as hell!!!

    • Lahing Bikolnun

      Heya mate, just an update the “server notice” was corrected when the Killer Frost challenge was activated. And another thing, I just fought online an RS Batman so it looks like the hackers can still use these characters online even after the update.

      • Thanos

        Nice! Finally servers are ok. And after this killerfrost update red son batman and killerfrost are complete. Before the update they were just in the game codes. Now the only characters missing are zattanna and ares. I hope they’re the next challenges after bane, batman and deathstroke! Also, now you can win gears as challenge prizes, that’s pretty cool!

        • Lahing Bikolnun

          Yup, but I did noticed what the other guys on the faq board as saying, the MP became hard. If you’re team has one GC E7 chances are you’ll get paired with somebody with 3 GC E7, sometimes with 300 gears. As per the challenge prizes, I haven’t seen one yet, it’s always the PC.

          • Thanos

            If you complete 5 challenges in standard mode, the prizes are the same: 1 bronze booster pack, 1 silver booster pack, 15k credits and killerfrost. If you complete the expert challenge, you can also win a 2 star gear, and if you complete nightmare challenge you win the specific 3 star gear for killerfrost.
