This is a touchy subject for some, because many feel the special animations obscure the board and are little more than an annoyance. However, if everything was just straight-up damage calculations, it wouldn’t be fun and the 5* specials wouldn’t seem QUITE as cool or devastating. A previous post I replied to gave me the idea, because two newer hero animations really stood out:
Zimkitha – I like her “dawn strike” rising sun-style animation… was my favorite… until I tried out Onatel.
For me? Onatel’s special animation is THE coolest.
What about you?
