As much as this would absolutely post a valid way for me to use my iron, I would much rather prefer the option I have posted.
Further complicating the roster stats kind of ruins it for me, not because I don’t like the general mechanics of strategy and all of the game which is obviously the reason I got hooked in the first place, but much more so because I think that would be turning around in circles, reassessing the odds of reassessed heroes who previously needed a reassessment because the game was reassessed all of these after the first reassessment which was the talent grid.
All right that sounds horrible, but my point is that I’d thank a fresh approach to some of the issues of the game rather than further complicating what it already has.
I have, no overestimation here; HUNDREDS of troops lying around waiting to be fed to other troops, and I finally had wrapped my mind around the idea of training troops (mines are levels 18/19/20/12 (12 for the colors I double down on my team) and I fear I’ll never get the ham I need to train them.
If there was a way to trade iron for food I’d be able to train different types of troops for different battles and purposes, and that would look to me like a more fitting use of that iron and a valid tweak to the strategical part of the game.
After all, crystal shards I have 5000 of those and nearly 1000 dragon bones… mind you: I barely use time stops because I have hel and I rarely use revive scrolls because I have Alberich.
So in my humble opinion the sole purpose of iron for me other than the talent grid would be… getting food.
LOL. Long gone are the days when I didn’t have iron to level all the buildings but had too much food in my hands; the tides turned.
