Congratulations on your new 5* hero!
Before you race off: dump off-colored feeders and 4* ascension materials
Make your unstoppable defense.
Then later be crowned #1 and given a parade.
Let me assure you, that’s not going to happen…
If you’re reading this, then you probably know that. Which is why your here looking for the skinny on your sweet new pull!
Well that’s another challenge…
There’s legitimate, non-biased information from folks that have seen a thing or two.
There’s others… who dove head first into the shallow end of the pool.
And even though they’re forehead is gushing blood, they will relentlessly and fervently defend what an amazing and rewarding decision they just made.
- Meta’s come and go
- 4* mats don’t
The primary recommendation is…
Take your time!
Play with what you have, but don’t get in a hurry.
If you lack patience, then you’ll undoubtedly experience regret in one form or another…
Your time here will be regulated by only you!
And most serious players have been at this for multiple years! There’s no need to rush.
After you reach 3.70 - I recommend a 2 month period before pulling the trigger and wiping out those materials.
During the first month, many whales will show off their bank accounts and have fully leveled/blemmed heroes a day after release. During this time, the upper echelon get to judge the strength and value of these new toys in a population sample that beta can not replicate.
Consider this time period as: Beta-Live
After a month passes, so will judgement. By allowing beta-live to run its course you will be able to gather clear intel and not just…
This time period/information may save you some heartburn over precious 4* materials later on!
By allowing another month to pass after beta-live you get to sample your hero at 3.7 against prevailing metas.
Other opinions, whether they’re face is gushing blood or not, is still predicated on that person’s position in the game. Which… unquestionably will NOT be relative to your position in the game! Meaning how many other 5* heroes they/you have. What type of defenses they/you regularly see. How much money they/you spend…
so take your time, and get to know your new hero. Get a feel for it!
This time period will also give your roster a chance to grow. While test driving your new toy. Who’s to say RnGeesus won’t bless you with another bun in the oven?
Just remember, even if you are playing with 4*'s for an extended period of time:
This game is an endurance contest, Not A Race!
It’s ok to emblem 3 and 4* heroes. Though, that might be another topic, I only blem my 5’s.
But… you can get emblems back!
You can’t get your mats back…
It’s also important to note: your position in the game will also change relative to next year.
Your Roster Will Change…!
along with your perception of value.
So judging the value of ascension will eventually include your needs. For example: your alliance has a chosen tank color. Now consider how many tanks do you need? Because on offense, there is no tank…
And those tank-like heroes tend to benefit less from ascension as their utility/sniper counter parts.
Meaning, all heroes gain survive ability. But also gaining added skill damage or added skill utility. Increases the value of your trade for rare 4* mats.
Give yourself an extended test drive. And a chance to grow. You won’t be disappointed later, when you have the resources for a strong foothold in the #1 position. The only disappointment you may experience is wondering about that parade.
