More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three 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:

Another frightfully overpowered hero. Just another log on the OP forest fire.


Very powerful but he only affects one opponent so he won’t be enough to reap a team in one strike

I want him for my titan team and I can imagine pairing with heroes I already have like C Kage, Khonshu, Nyx and Sergei

I get what you are saying but very fast with all those other skills, it’s just too much man.


This month was the last month I will ever pay for anything in this game. The speed of these new OP-Heroes is just ridiculous and destroys the game balance for non spenders… in the long run I won*t be able to compete in upper diamond anymore but so what… whales gonna whale, us others will still find some fun in here :slight_smile:

Very fast, no mana, >400 damage… sure that! :clown_face:


He’s something like Khonshu who didn’t break the game yet

But I get your point. Soon we’ll see VF heroes doing AoE Defense Down and this might kill the balance

I get your point too. Only overpowered heroes who create a disturbance in the defense game get the nerfs. But this hero is very overpowered attacking for sure


450% damage. :joy::rofl: Kage is crying in a corner now, only does 320%.

Add on mana block and increasing DD. Only need 3 of them in an attack team to paralyse 3. :rofl::joy:


After I had first faced Kage, he became my absolute nightmare… In the meantime, I am happy when I see him, since his hits became so weak compared to the other monsters out there.


Wait till the new ninjas come out 1st charge which is pretty much VF does 290% AOE to all, summons a minions/fiend to all which att/counterattack, again all on 1st charge. Totally broken.


Could SG possibly make it any more obvious that they dont care about anything other than pushing out new OP heroes every day to milk the players dry? Seriously. They know this isnt sustainable. They dont put any effort into improving any aspect of the game. Literally 100% of there effort goes into summons. Game balance? Who gives a crap. QOL improvements that players actually want? Nah. Improve odds of getting items from free sources so players dont have to buy what they need to max the heroes they do have? Nah, lets just make the odds worse (they are absolutely worse), and have several offers every single day. SG has honesty increased doing all the things players hate, and ignore feedback and/or improvements to the game. We all knew this game had a shelf life, but I dont think any of us expected SG to ruin the game at this insanely high rate.


Check out TT financials. It’s published up to 6 months ended 30/9/22. Two consecutive quarters with net losses.

Zynga contributes about 50% to revenue. This game contributes significantly to that 50% of total revenue. It’s listed as one of the 5 contributors. I would peg EP at contributing at least 10% to that 50%. That’s a lot of money.

It’s make or break these last 2 quarters from Oct 22 to Mar 23. Need to make net profit for the last 2 quarters to either report a breakeven or a small net profit for FY ended 31/3/23.

Repayment for TT debt notes starts in 2023. TT used up bulk of their cash reserves plus went into 2B debt to buy out Zynga. Remembered it as 9B cash/cash equivalents and 2B debt. Something like that. It was awhile back in 2nd quarter 2022, April/May.

This flood of new heroes, portals are in line with what I would expect from a Dev that needs to raise money, and fast. Summons are their biggest revenue generator.

Those collectors and whales chasing the latest greater OP heroes, are contributing to the current fundraiser movement, expected to last till end March 2023 at least. Possibly extended for another 3-6 months after that, if both Zynga / TT newly launched games do not take off as expected, or some of the previous Golden Eggs do not regain some of their Lustre.

Until then, the brakes are off. Corporate Survival is key.


But this current strategy is one of the reasons they are in this boat to begin with. SG has done nothing to improve enjoyment for this game. They only keep making decisions that ■■■■ players off and cause them to leave. What is the point in making a profit this quarter or the next, if it is at the expense of losing so many players the game cant continue after another year? The obvious conclusion is that they either think they can get more money from the whales that do happen to stay, or they dont care about making money long term. Imagine how many players they would still have if it wasnt for the power rush, lack of QOL improvements, and nerfs. Just to name a few things.

Damage dealer, def down and mana block at Very Fast speed…jaw dropping! Good luck, SG with big money buff this month :slight_smile:

Immediate need is corporate survival now.

Player QOL has improved. Small touches here and there. Nothing major. Obviously buying time to milk as much as they can for corporate survival.

Beyond that is anybody’s guess.

It’s not like this is the first game that Zynga has ruined.


Which odds are worse? Sorry this is a genuine question as I wasn’t aware of this :thinking:

Odds of receiving desirable heroes, and mainly odds of receiving 4* ascension mats. Although some players have great odds, and they like to come on the forum and claim that means the odds are the same for everyone, and they are great lol. Then they ignore when players like myself inform them of the absurdly low average, and claim we either lie or just have the worlds worst “luck”. As if SG doesnt prove everyday they dont care about the players or ethics. It is a safe assumption some of those players work for SG, and some just like to be keyboard warrior fan boys.


Goretooth had a couple small adjustments upon release, but is still absurdly OP. Fighter class, 2 good passives, an insane attack stat, and a very powerful ability. This powercreep crap is beyond tiresome.

**Edit: All at very fast speed lol

Had 7 coin pulls saved and he dropped, I’d have taken any of the featured tbf but very happy with this guy!
