As a start… I am aware of a previous post (solved) that discussed not being able to continue to level to increase skill when hero is maxed. This is not the same issue, but is similar.
The issue is for the higher star heroes (4* or 5*) that need the madly rare ascension items. This means a hero will get stuck on a given Tier (typically on Tier 3 for 4*) potentially for weeks while you try find the item(s) you need to ascend. In this time, once you’ve reached the max level for that Tier, the level up button becomes disabled again.
Once again, this means you are now stuck/prevented from at least trying to get the special skill improved while you are patiently waiting for those needed ascension items. This compounds the frustration.
I am not asking for any freebies in items here. I’m asking that the ‘level up’ button not be disabled when a hero is stuck on max for the current tier. This allows you to continue to consume hero fodder to try level up that special skill, while obviously not gaining any more in level.
Would appreciate DEVs to take a look and respond.
(P.S… please don’t respond with 'I don’t suffer this because I had the good sense to train with coloured heroes and maxed my specials before this. Fact is it’s random, and entirely possible that you are unlucky enough that you hit the limit in level while still not having maxed special skill. My wife is in that position, and I have the prospect of being in that position on 2 of my heroes. I’ve trained (and maxed) quite a few others, so know what I’m doing. It can, and does happen).
