🧪 Early Information on Ninja Tower Summon Portal [Part of The Beta Beat V32]

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the new Ninja Tower Summons Portal.

Ninja Tower may NOT be included in the final v32 game release, but is continuing Beta testing during the v32 cycle. Final release is expected in late 2020.


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.

The 1% summoning chance is pathetic when only the red and green legendaries have any game utility at all.

By far, the worst portal yet.

I would say ToL is worse, but they thankfully fixed that. Otherwise it’s exactly the same as for Challenge Events.

Not really. Most of these 5* heroes are extremely powerful. Unlike TOL where many of the legendary heroes aren’t that good.

Isn’t there any viable alternative to filling these portals with s1 heroes?

Jade and Garnet are great off the bat, but the other three need to be at at least 2nd charge (10tiles) to do anything. Since the attack heroes are really only for offense you have to hope for a helpful Initial board given the speed of raid meta.

The epics are a joke unless their charge is maxed. The counterattack bonus is interesting, but it’s tough to picture when you’d run all three on a team.

ToL at least has Gravemaker, Drake, Seshat, Athena, Hel plus the best offer in the game. But, yes, that portal is trash too.

Tired of SG constantly spamming new portals that offer nothing to long-time players but the same dismal odds to get anything useful.

This is perhaps the most anticipated by players

There’s the rub. People say “wahhh I’m bored”, then they complain about summons odds, or it’s too easy or too difficult. I love these forums but frankly, sometimes it’s too much negative.

There’s other threads to discuss the actual exciting aspects of Ninja Tower, namely the event itself.

This, however, is a thread about the summoning portal and there’s nothing good to say about it. It’s the same crap as every other summon. Not to mention it’s more offer spam that’ll come up any time you open the game. I’m already X-ing out four or five things every time I play. Get used to the negativity because this is how a lot of players feel about the way the game is going.

I’m used to it, very good point about this thread being a summor portal thread. I guess I’m way too positive thinking that I can earn free summons. Could get a dawa could get a new ninja legendary…eaether way it was a new challenge.

Does the summon portal feature a bonus ascencion chest for each 10x summons just like Atlantis or Valhalla ?

I didn’t note one.

Can check again later or someone else can verify.

Does anyone really care about summons anymore?

Not being salty — just wondering when the burying a couple good heroes in a sea of don’t care will reach ‘meh’ levels of saturation.

Particularly knowing things can and will change on a dime with little to no acknowledgement— Of that a HotM down the line can blow the doors off a rarer, recurring event hero.

Having said that, the tower it self could be interesting, new playable content is always welcome :slight_smile:

Certainly for FTP, the coined summons make up a significant portion of their Hero intake. I would imagine they hate the constant fodder, but would would face an even slower grind without them.
And, of course, it gives a spot for the whales to dump their cash, and good luck to 'em.

I get what you’re saying, but even without the money attractant aspect, this game has gobs and gobs of fodder baked in right at the core. It’s certainly not the first online game to do so, nor will it be the last. The last time it irked me, I think I was still proudly comparing my C-64 against an 8088.

I get the F2P dilemma —

But we started at summon tokens, migrated to collect 100, then those were removed for different coins

Then collect 10s , keys, goblin chests…

Heh a .99c “special deal” shouldn’t be equal to a junk drawer that takes 2-3 days to assemble.

At somepoint, the instructional manual is going to be a flowchart of all the portals — with much the content that can be summoned inferior to a random new HotM :slight_smile:

I’m just laughing at the “ounce” of gems — it’s one of the most honest offers I’ve seen :slight_smile:

It really does seem like they started from scratch in a lot of ways, doesn’t it? There’s a fair number of ideas that came and went very quickly, like, “Oh that was a bad idea”. Yeah, as the last five years of mobile gaming releases could have told you!

Nevertheless, I like the segregation that having many portals provides. It means that, while you may still be subject to the gasha rules, you can still see inside the bubble and make some meaningful choices about what pool to draw from. In that respect, the HOTM notion is the broken part, even without the Telluria thing. It makes HOTMs (try not to laugh) too common.

This, I like.

Would you please tell us what the offer is exactly? Thank you. :wink:

This has been mentioned repeatedly and ignored repeatedly.

Too many portals and micro transactions. It’s getting a bit out of hand. I suppose we can always #nospend though.
