I’ve been playing over 2.5 years. I have 21 five-star heros maxed with 34 five-star heros waiting. 5 of them are at 3/70.
I know many players are always short of an ascension item, always short of a strong shield or on rings or telescopes and that means it takes a lot longer to max out a 5-star of that color, but I’m always short Tomb of Tactics. This means I can not max ANY five-star heros! LOL!
I would think the game would want to throttle players so they don’t get too strong too fast and I’m ok with that. I do feel however that not being able to max ANY five-star hero is really hurting my game and possible putting me behind other players development.
I’m a cheap-to-play player, I buy gems when they are on sale. However, I’ve pretty much don’t buy gems anymore as there is no point to it. I don’t try to get the HOTM, I don’t try to get event or seasonal heros because I know, I won’t be able to max them. It’s starting to get me a little down on the game.
So, is this just in my head or should I be able to max out more of my five-star heros? 21 done in 2.5 years, really cool, but 34 are waiting and it’s been several months since I’ve last had a tomb of tactics…
I know some might say, hey, go get the alchemy lab, but I feel that is a crap answer. The alchemy lab is a gamble and I feel I shouldn’t have to spend resources and gamble to get what I need when I play every single day, I hit the Titan every day, I play in every War, I pay for POV, I do the Goblin Balloon when I feel it’s a good deal. I put in the time, I participate in the events, even if I don’t buy gems as much, I still do the VIP, POV and sometimes the Goblin Balloon.
What do you guys think? Am I on par with everyone and this slow ascension of five-stars is just in my head or am I really being throttled in my five-star development? (I don’t mean my five-stars are purposely being restricted, I have the opinion the game mechanics randomly chooses which ascension item to have a player short on and I think mine was randomly chosen to be Tomb of Tactics).
Thanks for your responses
