To be honest, I was going to start a thread about this some time ago as well…
It soon will be half a year from the “acknowledgment of issue” that we believed HA will address but it didn’t. I didn’t join the hatetrain at v30 as I kinda liked the AL and HA as they were, but that was at the promise that the dupes are indeed going to be addressed sooner rather than later.
We keep getting new ways to get the dupes, but not really the way to deal with the ones we had.
That especially applies to non-S1 dupes. I am kinda OK with how HA allows to deal with the surplus of S1 legends by allowing to eventually change them into rarer hero. I get that real value of those legendaries is much lower than others, so exchanging Khagan into guaranted Gravemaker is never going to happen. I don’t like that if I put in my second useless Ranvir that hopped out of portal instead of someone I find more useful, he eventually becomes a 5th Khagan or 7th Quintus.
And if I am ever at a spot where I have like all but one heroes from let’s say Avalon events, am I really assumed to keep throwing money at the portal to get through the wall of Arthurs, Guins, Morgans duplicates chasing that Black Knight? Because that’s so not going to happen ever lol no matter how I like and want the hero. I was at that point when I wanted Panther and had to swallow 3 Owls and 2 Kongs before her, and that was at times when there were only 3 5 star heroes in that portal, and Kong with Owl were so bad.
And I mean… while ideally we would want to take all those heroes we don’t want and turn them into a hero we want, if we can at least melt the dupes into like 200 emblems, or extra 20 pulls for the portal they jumped out of, or epic ascension mat etc… I would really be fine with it. Anything but having to cope with that dire pinch in your heart when you went in over the budget again doing another 30x pull and out of 4 featured heroes you only get the 3rd copy of the one you already own, and you know you are not going to use them ever but it was just too expensive to use them as a feeder. So they just stay there in your roster forever, only making it difficult to scroll through it.
