** The original ''Spider-Man'' event was the third full-size event in a row (and if you count the ''British Invasion'' mini-event, it was the fourth in a row). Players were getting tired of the regular deadlines for event content and still adjusting to the fact that this was going to be the status quo from now on. On top of that, ''Spider-Man'' was double-length - essentially two events one right after the other - which compounded the fatigue.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Quake. She has the least characterization and variation of quotes among all the playable characters, which only emphasize her role as NaiveNewcomer (which got old pretty quick consider the fact you can upgrade her to level 5, and her missions revolve around her growing out of this, but her quotes continue to focus on this). Not even mention that a lot of her quotes are bugged, meaning that she atleast on average will not talk if you click on her 1 out of 5-6 times.
** Taskmaster, to an extend. The game AdaptationalVillainy removed many of his sympathetic aspect caused him to be flattened and lost nuance in quotes and interaction with the other character than he otherwise would have had.

** ''Multiverse'' caught flak because half the characters - essentially anyone not from 2099 - were no-name rehashes of characters that players actually wanted and possibly had already.

* The Under Siege event, which promised to provide players a chance to get a number of characters from past events they might have missed. While they gave a number of them for free, it was made incredibly difficult to unlock the premium characters as they were only available through a special crate that required players to fight the bosses ten times to unlock (said bosses being incredibly overpowered while the playable heroes were limited per boss (Ronan only having three non-premium characters allowed to face him) and severely under-powered (with the method for levelling them up being extremely difficult) in comparison). The crate keys couldn't be bypassed by sharding either, so even if you were willing to pay-to-win, you didn't have the option. Making matters worse, even if you ''did'' get enough keys, you didn't get to choose which hero you unlocked, since it was completely random, which sucked for players who wanted one in particular. A number of players have found this event disappointing as a result, not helped by it being such a short event that you had a tiny window to go about the incredibly difficult unlocking method as it was.

** Crossing into TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot, but a lot of the event and bonus characters tend to have similar arcs-join to help fight the current threat, meet the cast, then grow suspicious of Fury and try to uncover his secrets, and form a team of some-sort for reasons. In a similar fashion the female spy characters all have similar stories of joining, being suspicious of Fury for reasons, try to uncover his secrets then fail, often interacting with other spy characters who either share their suspicions or have accepted he has secrets.

* WTHCastingAgency: Since it was first announced, many of the voice options drew confusion from fans of both the Avengers and the actors cast. Many turned out to be surprisingly good choices, but some have proven to be rather ill-fitting. [[Creator/RoosterTeeth Gus Sorola]] as Hawkeye has been a particularly confusing choice as Gus sounds ''nothing'' like one would expect Hawkeye to sound, and once Hawkeye was finally in the game it was clear he used his natural voice.

** Where's Hawkeye? [[labelnote: Explanation]]Hawkeye was shown in the trailer and the promotional photos for the game, and had a voice actor announced shortly after release. However, aside from a brief cameo in the Beach event, nothing has been seen from him, leading people to wonder where he's supposed to be.[[/labelnote]] Has become an AscendedMeme, as the question is answered in the FAQ.

** Ghost Rider being the first premium character of the Halloween event has had similar reactions to Jessica Jones. With indications that Blade will also be a premium... well the player base is exactly happy.

** The pure chaos of the final week during the Daredevil event. Many were outraged that Punisher, who could only be unlocked by defeating Kingpin 6 times, was going to be near impossible to get for most players due to the incredibly high difficulty of defeating Kingpin 6 times as well as the scarcity of resources needed to fight Kingpin. Players also had to unlock Luke Cage during the same week. With many fans having to accept they'd never unlock Punisher if they didn't pay a load of money into the game, it was a huge problem for the players. Many players announced they were considering quitting the game, while others decided they wouldn't take part in future events if things didn't change. Fans also getting the general feeling the developers didn't care and just want the player's money didn't help.
