This Topic might be too much, but After 1 Month of Playing and reading, the Sentence is, Quit and Run!
As a new Player u are excited and want all right now, so u Start play and do whatever is done, u get packs for offers u might buy cause u like the Idea of the Game, then u get new Heroes and u Think YES thats my 5 heroes to go, u check how good ur Heroes are and u read and read and realize, wait…i have all those Heroes and cant use them? Wait i have to wait F2P wise 6-12 Month to even max them?
So again u try play the “slow” way! Build 3* and some 4* u read about they worth. And again, u cant manage make Progress, u have ur low Energy and many Quests or Sidetracks that dont Benefit strenghting ur Heroes, so u wait and wait and do what every one recommend and u dont see the Point.
Why should i only wait, how can i Catch up or be Part of the Game? The Answer is easy, be patiened and wait and Progress as anyone else does (no Catch up) or spend (somewhat catch up). I could do so much more examples why it is so demotivating at the beginning.
I wish i had a Solution, but i dont, atleast make Access to 3* or Ham or Iron for some Steps, like Clear 4:10 (bla bla Achievement unlocked 3* token) 8:10 and so on u get the Idea, doesnt need to be a Hero Token can be Rewards which Help in the beginning. But heroes at Early stages are only through spending available and can be Leading u to Death if it is a 5*, cause it is impossible with Current Ressources to Manage Evolve ur Heroes to max or 3/70.
I come from a Different Game with other Issues, but this is a Nightmare, no long Term goals, no short success. No skill involved (besides playing the board and with the odds) and Last, high requires to get Events or Quests or Mats done (not talking about get 2 minor potion for 4 energy).
SG need step up and make it more beginner friendly and long Term for the Veterans, which is doable in Million Ways, but i cant tell them all.
So have a good one and see you
