More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

This means that 3 enemies heals you + you heals one enemy?

Happy gaming

No, it’s just like a mindless attack, but the enemy with full mana instead of attacking one of his teammates will heal one of your heroes (with the least proportion of health blah blah blah). And of course the enemy will lose all of his mana.

Many of us told in beta that the wording of the special needs to be adjusted because it’s totally unclear, but instead they made it even more complex.

Cupido will boost defence longevity in a not so good board. With the right Allies, attacker will have their hands full. Cupido will be perfect if it is boosted health. Even 15%.

I hope it is upgraded to boosted health.

The enemy will heal you when they have this Healing Gift ailment.

Treason!!! Under influence of pixel drugs.

So, no Skill blocking, hit-3 with nearly 300% dmg and mindless attack on 3 (with healing for you instead of dmg for the enemy) in average.

In a seasonal Portal with a long runtime and quite good chances to aquire him.

If you get him, better lvl him fast, because he looks like the next C.Krampus/M&M to me.

Or wait with the summoning for two weeks. If he is in 2/3 of the top 100 defs, then you know who’s gonna get nerfed within the next 2-3 months.

Since the Season of Love won’t be available for another year, they may nerf this guy after bagging the cash, like with M&M & other heroes of that season!
Be warned!!!

Mind you, he was fast in his first iteration. We’ll see how he will end up eventually in the live game. He’s a super good hero to have for all game modes, but the fact that he hits three limits his OPness. Even he, himself, and all of the valentines heroes are resistant to this attack.

Nonetheless, ccQuintus again cries in the corner for being beaten by another hero just after his debut.

While it’s true c2Quintus is slow, I wouldn’t look past the fact that his mindless attack lasts for an extra turn and sometimes that’s the difference between a win and loss. Interesting how similar their skills are though!

Obviously SG has put themselves in a bad situation.

  1. They nerf before releasing as they have done recently. Many players get upset etc.
  2. They nerf afterwards and use this kind of heroes for increasing the short term income e.g. MM. Many players get upset.

They will get badwill anyway. Only way out is to switch management’s mind and acting a bit bit more long term with focus in game experience and balance in the game. The way they act is extremely short term and with a mindset of maximizing this month income. That is why we have the above behaviors, we have high numbers of new heroes, we have known bugs and issues that are not solved etc

Happy gaming

But it still says nothing about the mindless attack he delivers.

If this hero is fast, it will be too OP. Every mother will be trying to get this on defense and offense. Shutting down 3 heroes will decide the match.

I got mine. i was so happy even confuse whats in his skills. :sweat_smile:

Same here, in terms of getting him and not completely sure how he works. I’m assuming/hoping that it’s basically the same as Mindless attack but instead of attacking an enemy hero, it heals one of my heroes.

Also have to figure out how the healing works.

Absolutely! I read it several times and didn’t entirely understand it. :rofl: :face_with_spiral_eyes:
