I’m sure these are nearly universal sentiments at this point, but today I’m really feeling it. To give this some context, I’m a C2P player going on about 10 months of solid playing. To date, I’ve pulled six total 5* heroes. Three have come from TC20 (which admittedly I’ve only had up since about March) and the other three via the summon portal.
Unfortunately, all six heroes have been red. TC20 has blessed me with Khagan, Elena and Marjanna, while the portal has given me an additional two Khagan and Anzogh (hooray for a HOTM!). While I’m certainly happy to have those heroes, the RNG system has not been kind at giving me a variety to be able to start rounding out a workable 5* team. To compound the frustration, I have not had particular luck with red non-farmable ascencion mats either. At the moment I have eight blades and 4 rings. Not quite enough to max out a single one of those heroes. To contrast that, I have 12 orbs and 7 darts as well as 18 shields and 6 tonics which are all collecting dust as I wait for heroes to use them on. I already have two full rainbow teams of 4* heroes I’m happy with and I’m ascending others as I have extra mats to ensure I have no regrets when I finally do pull 5*'s of other colors.
I’m excited that options are being explored that will help rectify some of the randomness of the system, and give some control back to those of us who can’t afford to spend big in the virtual slot machines, but as far as I’m concerned these features can’t come soon enough! Anyone else out there in a similar spot?
