So we know there are 10 classes.
You can choose a few ways to go about using your emblems.
You can do what I do and focus purely on 5*. That gives you a good 10 heroes for war, assuming you have the right heroes and assuming you don’t spread your emblems out to more than 10 heroes.(A)
Or you could spread them out lower, from 3* to 4* which is cheaper and more affordable. (B)
Or you could do a mixture of both and spread them everywhere (C )
Given that War involves fielding 5 heroes x 6 teams = 30 heroes at the very least (more if you want variety), if you take strategy A, I’m of the view that your leftover 20 (30-10) unemblemed heroes (even 5* heroes at that) aren’t really a match for all these +10 or +11 defence teams. And the gap will continue to increase.
And if you take strategy B or C, if in high level war, it’s even unlikelier that your heroes could make a dent to your opponents. With a few exceptions possibly (Eg. Hansel at the moment)
I think this is part of the reason @algeco left or took a break. Our dupe heroes (particularly 4*) can’t match the power of these +11 war teams so there’s not too much point in ascending them.
I think I would actually prefer it if emblems were removed because that would render my 5* roster useful all round in war because there’d then be no large disparity in power levels. All heroes on my team could make an impact.
On the other hand I get that it is kind of nice to make your favourite heroes even stronger, if you have them. I also get that it gives weaker players an opportunity to field stronger 4* teams.
But I think the gap at the top end of war is too large.
Do you think this is an unreasonable point of view? I’m sure this was discussed in Beta and perhaps previously on here but I can’t find it.
