Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 2% chance of summoning Finley.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 18 times out of 100, you’ll get Finley by pull 100
  • 63 times out of 100, you’ll get Finley by pull 500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Finley by pull 1500
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Finley by pull 2300

Putting that in Perspective

  • 82 out of every 100 people won’t get Finley by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::zero::zero: times, 820,000 of those players wouldn’t get Finley

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Finley by the 1500th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero::zero: times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Finley

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

I’m surprised no one has mentioned that Finley needs to be nerfed. He is completely broken. It’s like starting Pokémon sun/moon with a lvl 100, modest nature Mew (look it up and you’ll know). Taking Finley on offense is like hitting the easy button. NERF. FINLEY. TODAY! @Petri


They did nerf him…by not giving him to anyone else :joy::joy: haven’t heard of a single pull for him yet, still early I guess. I don’t have a problem with him though…THANK YOU Mitsu!


They just released finely’s counter hero his name is JF, if that’s onw way to nerf.

JF doesn’t counter Finley as well as you’d think. 94% ice defense is not stopping Finley from destroying your team.


It’s not the 94% it’s def counter all target hits by finelt gets +42% instead of -35%

Please…is he a strong hero, sure. I find him less annoying than GM. I have him and only really use him on offense if there is a buff caster…mostly that is Aegir defenses.

Defensively, I really can’t think of a time he was a big problem. Sure, if your team is down in strength and you are buffed he can kill you but I really haven’t ran into that. I raid against him every day and really don’t see him as OP.


As a Mitsuko owner, I bravely take on Finley based defenses. It’s very much entertaining.

But he indeed is the OP side, worst thing is that majority of heroes nowadays give any type of buff to make him jump. The -def on top of that is also a bit much… He would be fine if he worked more like Misandra - either have a chance to chain (maybe more that 40%) or make the jumps do minor dmg. For now it’s just way too obvious that they tried to make people pull for the least popular event by releasing an extremely strong hero to the pool.


But Finley can be countered not only by Mitsuko, but by Elena and Rigard or Vivica (Finley just destroys himself on counterattack).

He’s a handful, no doubt, but nerfing is not the answer. There should always be some hero / obstacles around to make you learn to adjust, and he is a good one. There are many ways to beat him, and a great one is to work on timing of your specials that give buffs to self or allies (either making sure it will run out, or hold off on firing).

Besides, the Pirate crew really needed a better hero to boost interest.
I say, Bring on the 5* Holy pirate, and make it another strong one!

Many of y’all either don’t listen or don’t understand. Finley needs to be nerfed because he’s too strong on OFFENSE. He can win raids for you all by himself practically… That SHOULD NOT be a thing. A single hero should not be able to kill two/three enemies on his own and leave the rest crippled. I’m sorry, but that’s absolutely broken.


Here are my thoughts further explained.

I honestly think the game should highly favor attackers. Because when we play, we are only the attacker; and losing sucks. That’s why you see so many complaints about bad boards and raids being unfair; because when you are the one actively playing, it sucks to lose.

It sucks a lot more than losing on defense, cuz that’s just a statistic, you weren’t actively involved in defending.

So it’s really a smart psychological thing to allow players to “win more” by allowing them to win on offense. Players are happier that way.

I disagree. Sure, Finley will likely die if he fires after Elena’s special has triggered. But first of all that means getting your slow hero to charge before a fast hero. Secondly he is still going to do a ton of damage and lower your defense before he goes down. And thirdly if you use him on attack obviously you wouldn’t fire him while your opponent has a riposte buff active.

You can time Elena’s special to Finley’s, if you are an attacker.
And charge Elena and other hero to counter Finley. But this is more difficult, I agree, but this is a solution for someone who do not have Mitsuko.

Holy ■■■■ I can’t believe I got this bad boy on a single pull with my coins. I was just hoping for Vodnik and here he comes!

the PoV telescope should be my 6th also so I can level him woohoo


Congrats! I also got him on a single coin pull. I was just wondering what were the probability to get him on a single pull when this boy showed up. Good lord!

But I have no scope, I just gave the last 6 I had to Ariel.

/end of bragging

To open the discussion a bit, so it seems Finley is very good in offense. What about in defense? I have seen him in many teams, but I don’t know his synergies.

@Soprano One can easily destroy him by choosing a riposte/counterattack hero, when he is on defense.

Would bore the crap out of crap

Wanna win more, get better. It’s not that hard. Simple game.
