i feel a bit dirty for accepting this, but it looks like the flood of costumes for non-S1 will not stop. Oh well.

thanks for continuing to keep us informed!

I think it is possible for every 5*, and even 4* now to eventually get a costume. :face_with_monocle:

Tokens

A “flood” would be releasing tokens/ placeholders for all past HotM

Game balance

But all of this is a missed opportunity to rebalance Free 2 Play, Pay 2 Play and Pay 2 Win

From another discussion:

Costumes

They are coming

My number 1 objection is still how they are handling it limited availability costumes ( see notes )

Personally I think costumes were a huge missed opportunity to rebalance Free 2 Play, Pay 2 Play and Pay 2 Win

Cluck for notes

Rant

After you get Stronghold 13+, the game is less about balance and more about profits so it is deliberately super grindy

Sad but true right. If only they could spice things up a bit with the event itself it wouldnt be such a drag nowadays. With those low odds im not even tempted the try and pull with gems on this portal. The costumes are a nice gimmick but that’s all. I rather try my luck at the new events like Circus and the new upcoming Alliance quest.

There is one reason why I do not pull (with gems) from this portal.

You have 98.1% chance to pull a Season 1 hero from this portal.
This is far the worst compared to any other portals.

I know as per non-season 1 five star this portal has the best chances (1.9 + 1.3 + 0.1), but
I miss some Season 2,3,4, and event 3-4 star heroes.

So from those portals I have much higher chance to get something new, what I want.

Will there be only the 3 costumed heroes highlighted? or are 5 heroes featured? considering two without a costume.

Only the 3 Heroes mentioned in OP with costumes are Featured.

This is the absolute WORST summon portal…
The entire point behind it is a chance to get past HotM, but then odds are so terrible. With no 3* or 4* heroes to aim for, there should be a considerably higher chance of rolling a HotM, especially when you factor into account that when you do roll the very rare 0.9% you have approaching 40 heroes in that of which you will get something random and that number goes up 2 every portal. If you want someone specific the odds are not in your favor.
The last portal event I blew way too many gems trying to get Aegir as he was featured… I got 2 Evelyns and my 2nd Myztero… I won’t disclose how much money I blew on trying to get Aegir but it was hundreds of dollars. Not a single HotM from the 0.9% pool.
Either bring the odds up to something reasonable as you don’t have good odds at getting something you want, or maybe have several “groups” with odds, for example maybe something like a group by year of release or 6 month groupings.
Just my thoughts on the matter.

Pull rate should have been a solid 5% by now. Who cares if someone manages to pull miki, half of these are obsolete hotms by now.
They just want to justify that crap pull rates with the new costumes. But the costumes are barely even variants of the old one. Oh gravemaker can now deal very fast AOE, very threatening. Seshat is now a weaker kage, really impressive :unamused:

As someone with both Alby and Seshat, I’m not happy that they are releasing costumes for both of them. I’m not happy that Vanda is getting a costume too, a hero that was only released last year. Same will apply for Francine and Frank.

However, I feel somewhat better that costumes for seasonal event heroes aren’t super OP (so far anyway). It is unfortunate that they’re continuing to release costumes for non S1 heroes but it will never stop, unless the game ends.

Also, I have never spent gems on this portal. I don’t see myself changing that.

With less then 1 million active players nowadays the devs need to maximise their revenue with the temptation of more costumes through leg ends challenge event. As a F2P player this new version won’t tempt me to spend money on 3 star S1 heroes I can get through daily coins

Are there less than 1 million active players nowadays? What are the official figures?

Based on tournaments figure a month ago, it was 1.25 millions, down 300 thousands from previous year but still above 1 million.

I was ranked as 374,544 in raid tournament last week got top 50% loot my calculations aren’t 100% accurate but best guess. Lot of people not bothering to hit mythical Titan our alliance is ranked around 7400 but we finished as 4498 alliance, Devs are offering a lot of emblems and aethers atm and people are buying them. But the pull ratio seems to have gone down on 5 star heroes. Then you you get the current Morlovia costume heroes who all need a buff, I have 8 EHT but will save them for Christmas seasonal event rather have MN or Santa than what’s on offer now. Question is are Devs fixated on getting as much as they can from the remaining active players and letting it crash and burn or trying to improve the game for newbies to join. I think the clock is ticking and season 4 will be the last???

All this is getting old. Just seems like they are beating a dead dog. New events are not worth playing…they take much more items than what is rewarded. I’m only still playing to be a thorn…thats it. I constantly warn new players not to make the mistakes I did.

There will be a S5 but I’m thinking that’s gonna be the last season.

Anyone have a decent guess when they will release season 5? Any inside info? lol

If SG follows Season 4 pattern then it will start about 1 month after Season 4 ends.
Earlier Staff have written that the first set of Season 5 heroes will arrive to Beta later this year.

Damn… Season 5 beta…

I started this game when Season 3 just started so I was way behind. I finally managed to finish all S3 levels last month (except for hard mode last level) and shifted gears to catch up on S4 progress… Now they tell me Season 5 is coming… :joy: Time to start saving gems.

To be honest, this, coupled with all the new events they launched this year, is just overwhelming.
