Don’t get too attached

Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.

It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.

So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.

<insert rant about season 1 heroes still being included>

Portal seems to be very similar to season 4. Same odds. 3 featured heroes.

Not much to say since it’s just a standard portal.

It does seem like we could subtract 1% from classic rare heroes with each new season. Even if it just puts it into the seasonl rare percentages, it would be a small step that I could point to some progress.

But I’ve also accepted the odds and don’t see them changing it dramatcially.

Is there already any information about how the gem promotions will be? Day 1 will sell a promo with 3000 gems? Or promo with 300 gems and season coins? Or some other promo other than seasons 2, 3, 4? Thanksss!

We will see it just only when it arrives to the game.
I am expecting similar offers what we have for Underwild.

Will there be a house Harkonnen family bonus?

FYI- I just filled an ice chest 30 min ago and it still had Underwild coins. So while dune coins are in-game the transition over is not complete.

Doesn’t look like all the beta tested 5 stars will be live in this first instance of the portal- just one of each color. From SGG announcement:

Do you personally like any of those 5*?

So actually I can completely predict what’s going to happen. I have absolutely no interest in that red hero. That will be the one I get

Horus is probably the one I’m most keen to get personally. Would round out my yellow stack very nicely.

He is a future yellow tank in high elo :slight_smile:

Also Khonsu could be tank even though he is a sniper, but at very fast speed giving 24% mana ailment for 3 turns and 70% dmg is a great tank option.

S5 is all about overpowered passives which probably arent blocked by taunters, thats why SG is releasing a taunter HOTM :wink:
