Found a fast wing 5* Tahir with no mana bonus in my watchtower to fight and also had set up two fast 4*, Heifeng Guai and Scarlett without any mana bonuses.
- 1 tile of mana per turn and 8 tiles in total, so all 3 charge in 8 turns
- my new hypothesis: 4* charge in 9 turns or under, 5* in 10 turns or under, so 4* charge in 9 turns, 5* in 10 turns
- my previous hypothesis: all fast heroes charge with 9.08 turns, so all 3 of them charge in 10 turns
defending team 1:
defending team 2:
5* Tahir charged in 10 turns
4* Scarlett charged in 9 turns
4* Heifeng Guai charged in 9 turns
During turn 10 Tahir got the mana generation buff from Odin, but at this point it doesn’t matter anymore because Tahir wasn’t charged in 9 turns (and was nearly full so he would have charged in turn 10 anyway).
Heifeng Guai charging
=> For me this looks like sufficient evidence that there is more to the new hypothesis that 4* charge faster than 5* (I like that this presents an possible explanation for the outliers, but I’m not a fan of the necessary investigative work to find out the details)
=> it can be expected that other mana speeds are also effected, which also would require more investigation
If it is not about 4* and 5* (and possibly 3* charge also differently), what alternative explanation is there for this different charging behaviour on defense for these fast heroes?
Are there other fast 4* and 5* heroes that are special and really should be investigated as well to see how fast they charge on defense?
