And of course he was the first s3 5* I got, and the only one I got twice. He lurks at 3.70 and comes out for specific jobs like war cleanup and early stages of Ninja Tower. He’s fun, but definitely not the most useful.
As for the trainer change, I’m disappointed that the complaints were given traction. It’s all very well to say that it’s all very well for me, with my 2.5 year old roster, not to need s1 rares, but they still constitute over 50% of all the fillers. Plenty to make new players happy still. Or avoid these (currently) twice a year events and use your gems in other portals, like… well, all of them really. If you still need rares it’s unlikely that you’d be in a position to make optimum use of the more niche heroes - and frankly you’re probably at least as well off with what comes out of Avalon as any of the League of Villains. To be fair the killer clowns are probably going to be better. Not everything in the game needs to suit every player equally. And epic trainer heroes suited me very well. Would have liked more but understand I can’t have 'em, because the game is not built exclusively for me, more’s the pity.
Oh, and just in case it hasn’t been said enough times already: trainers are replacing filler slots, not event heroes. You would be getting a 3* trainer hero only where you would otherwise be getting a s1 3*. They are not in any way robbing you of a chance (pitiful though it already is) of getting the good stuff.
