Drifting with no goal

After 30 months or so, i’m totally on the opposite situation.

Always had plenty of resources and no interesting heroes to use them on, but lately i had to powerlevel 4 heroes in a row (Guinevre, Grazul, Magni and Kingston) and still having Black knight (waiting for the last ring) and Neith (which i do not powerlevel to not finish her too fast).
2 HotM and stop in more then 2 years, and then 5 limited time in 3 months.

Then i plan to do Atlantis summon, and i can be or very lucky and get what i want immediately (so another legendary) or not lucky and must do a 30x summon and probably get several atlantis heroes i don’t have (Melia, Chochin, eventually a third Namahage, Proteus, Gadeirus, Triton, Danzaburo).

Then i should go after buddy with my last 40 coins.

30 months of playing, and i’m never been so buisy and as short on resources as right now, lol.

I’m in a similar situation and that’s my plan. Upgrading my last TC now.

I feel you @Ian487 - only a new 5* scratches the itch and feels like progress.

Take a week break while your TC’s work

I second this.

I had a spell over the summer where I had no mats, no heroes worth ascending, no energy for the game.

So I opted out of wars, took a little break, and found myself very hungry to play after about 3 weeks.

Maybe it’ll help :woman_shrugging:

Yes, I remember that one. As I said then, summons got me nowhere… I must be around 600 summons with only Sartana to show for that… I tried everything I could think of… individual gem summons, 10x, individual tokens, 30 tokens for the spring event, 20 tokens for Morlovia, every Atlantis coin available, challenge coins lately… it’s like a curse… no 5* are coming my way… I got 13 total, all from TC20… 6 maxed… the rest doubles and triples, unworthy of 4* AM’s… Now even TC20 went silent since about two month ago, maybe even more… I run two of them round the clock, work on the third (17-18). I’m at a stand still… hope it’ll end soon…

@Peazomanco, @Dozer, thanks for the advice, but no can do… I enjoy the game, can’t even think of a break. That’s why I started this thread… to see if there are any in the same boat as me and how they deal with it… we just won war #3, can’t leave my team down.

About 4-5 months ago I was in the same situation. I left my top100 alliance and started a solo one just to chill out and fight wars and fill chests while saving up summons and running 3 tc20s. I filled a war chest in 3 weeks and then left and went to help some beginners for a while and that was fun. Helping them out with little tricks and who to level, and even killing more titans and getting them more loot.

Then after a couple of war chests there, I left again and went back to my solo alliance for another war chest. Some friends visited me to hang out here and there and then I ended up heading to another more novice alliance to help out again in a similar manner as before.

Meanwhile tc20 popped me out 2 five stars I could really make use of, and then saved up summons got me Kingston. All of a sudden I burned through my resource savings leveling and my roster opened up with new teams and different synergies and such.

And that’s where I’m at now. So, I don’t really have a suggestion for you or anything. Just wanted to let you know how it went down for me and how I’ve been continuing on. Good luck :+1:

Well, for what it’s worth, after I wrap Seshat, I’ll have no mats until christmas at least. My plan:

  1. Stock up on a TON of feeder heroes
  2. Work on troops because they’re not at 30 yet
  3. Collect emblems
  4. Participate in wars + titans
  5. Do a set of weight lifting between each raid in the morning, which is how I play lol - motivates me to get strong! Fits right into my day between waking up and going to work.

It might sound silly but I use this game to deliver dopamine while I take rest intervals between weight-lifting sets. Makes it feel like I’m doing something quite productive while playing lol

I’ve been in your shoes (The Diary of the FTP who finished 53rd in legendary). It was 1 year and 9 months for me until I got my first 5* from pulls but it was Hel! Were there any moments during these 21 months when I was discouraged? Yes. But my love for the game and my alliance kept me playing.

You’ve had bad luck with pulls but they are the best way to progress in the game. The mistake I used to do in the past was to use EHT, Atlantis coins and gems right away when I had enough for a pull.

It’s been just two months since challenge coins have been in the game. My advice is to choose an event from which you want the 4* heroes and save the coins for it. I learnt the hard way that trying for every single event but not concentrating on one is a bad idea.

Don’t get discouraged. You’re in a very bad streak but this means that a good streak is coming. Good luck!

Then you can just fight the wars and titans. Enjoy the social part of the game.

I usually do the chores when autoplay. On saturday - Sunday I was at the gym by 2 am and played a little while ended the workout at the bike.

You can leave a solo ally as the one and last without any members left and simply rejoin this empty ally?

Someone once told me if my TC20 kept generating 3* to run it for something else for a bit (say TC2), then return to TC20.

I recently did just this and went from a long string of 3* to Grimm (this morning). I’ll see if I get anything better over the next few days.


I like the “take a quick break” advice. Don’t do anything you don’t want to, of course! :wink:

Maybe go be a Merc for a few days, or join a baby alliance and teach them what you know. Something to break the grind.


@jinbatsu I love your 10 month spreadsheet!

Put focus into bettering your alliance and teammates. Just what i do

My growth hits walls, but alliance growth and teammate growth don’t so always somethin to work on

I made an alt account just to stay there and hold its place so the alliance doesn’t disappear

If raiding is your concern, then variety is obviously the goal. Skittleskull isn’t the best but having more than 2 for wars is overkill. We all develop what heroes we get. When I started, I kept getting multiples of heroes, so I would be leveling those up so that I can actually field 30 decent heroes. As a result, I have 2 ascended Little Johns, and another 2 at 3/60. I just never got any other 4* greens or 5* until relatively recently. Similarly with Boldtusk, Grimm, Rigard, Sabina and Hu Tao. I ended up getting around 4-6 of them before getting other 4* heroes. Luckily, I did start getting other heroes so some of the multiples ended up as feeders, but generally I had at least 1 fully ascended and 1 at 3/60. I don’t feel it as a waste as they can be serviceable war bench strength. Plus, many times we see teams who consolidate on one colored tank. Having 12-18 of the strong color means you can have an effective 6 attacks. I find that there’s always a hero to work on. At one point, I thought I wasn’t progressing, then finally get a few blue heroes which was my main weakness. Yeah, so I get the 5* heroes that people don’t think are good: Thorne, Leonidas, Justice, Elkanen, Quintus, and Obakan, but whatever fills the roster. On the other hand, I recently got Merlin and my second Proteus, so that’s good.

I was starting to feel similar so its not just you. I’m at 17 months now. 16 5* all from tc20 except 2, joon and mitsuko. I am lucky that I have most of the good ones and only magni and justice dupes. At least 1 in each color is max, plus I have all the 4* s1 and all the s2 4s but Wilbur.
Like you said you want 5* and I am at that point. My next green is either horghall or a 4* little John or Skittles or melendor dupe. Same with a few other colors.
There’s no real hope for getting Atlantis coins with all the levels done so maybe 2 pulls a month at best. I get about 3 challenge coin pulls each event and got Peters from pirates but no 5.

I am looking forward to costumes but they seem like a lot of grind for a s1 hero at the end of the day that’s all it is.

Maybe if s3 came out it would help. Maybe the path of valor will change things up a bit. I also left my Alliance and went solo with my alt account.

I am going to play through it hopefully finding a new idea. I’m not quitting but its tough looking at those shiny new heroes and not have a few. I can’t see how it would hurt giving loyalty bonuses to long term players. Like after 12,18,24 months you get a token for a hotm pull where its only then in the pool or something similar. Other games give you heroes even earlier and they are fixed heroes that you know what you’re getting.
Hopefully it passes but I’ve never played a game this long even on consoles or pcs and certainly never mobile games. But stick around maybe they’ll include hotm in the hero academy,

Thanks for your answer, guys. I apreciate you took the time! I’ll find a way most likely, and if I won’t, It’s a game after all… but your support is really apreciated!

That’s interesting. Mine produce a lot of 4*s, but no 5*s yet. 28% so far - more than I can keep up with. I’m not sure if I want to fool around with that. Just got Kelile this morning, so now I’m looking for Tibs, Sabina and Kiril to finish my set. Oops, forgot about Little John. I guess I’m not that close yet!

@Ian487 I guess even at my point, I run into boredom, as well. Raiding is enjoyable, but I accept that I’m stuck at low platinum right now. Farming is the worst for me. I’ve recently started working through S2 hard, which I know you’re done with already. So that’s a more enjoyable use of WE, knowing that I’m also grinding out coins in hopes of new summons. But yeah, after AR this month, I’m tempted to setup two TC20s, two TC11s, and just take a break (aside from rare quests). At the very least, to stop farming chests. Sorry I don’t have any real direction to offer.

About farming… farming is of course dull, but most important. It allows you to get the recruits needed to store ham and the low level mats for titan battle items. You don’t have to farm by hand. I farm while watching a movie, while cooking, on my way to work, at the office, but never by hand, always on auto. Farming for 43 WE doesn’t take that much time and actually even less attention. Back when I was dealing with S2 hard, I only went there during AR, to take advantage of the boosted loot and low energy cost. It took a long time, but it was rewarding in terms of crafting items.
