A day late, but that’s the nature of a hobby… it takes its own time.
The multiplicity of events and associated portals are, to me, fantastic. I spend a little, but have never “chased” a Hero, so the specifics of the system have never bothered me at all.
Instead, most weeks, I eagerly anticipate the next event that has a portal attached to it. Most events give me the opportunity to earn one or two free Summons per event. Clearly, I am most often disappointed in the results, but a quick glance at the calendar starts me scheming on the next portal to open. I’m in a constant state of looking forward to the next draw, maneuvering to earn enough Coins/Keys/Zocc Heads/whatever to get just one extra pull. If I’m feeling saucy and the budget allows, I might even *whisper* buy those last couple of coins
I play recreation-level sports of several kinds too, even though I’m about as athletic as your average pet pot-bellied pig.
Without the athleticism, I rarely win anything; but after every loss, I spend a whopping minute moping about it, and then head for the schedule to see who I’m facing next week. I immediately begin plotting their defeat, often over a burger and a beer.
The similarity struck me this week as I registered for this winter’s COVID-safe sport: curling.
I am, frankly, highly anticipating the Ninja Tower rollout, and not just for the new gameplay. The extra summon or two per month will be another day of the week with a little bit of enjoyable suspense for me.
