Hero Academy! Can we please have more information?

Do you have a source for this. 1 in 100,000 chance to get a HotM just to have it Nerffed sounds almost as awful as using gems.

I like the idea, but the cost still seems pretty high.
I’ve been playing for over 2 years now, pretty much everyday (Level 58, MOSTLY free player) and I have 27 5☆s total. Most can’t be leveled, as stated earlier, I’ve only gotten enough mats to level 2 of each color except for Red which I have enough for 3. Only 3 of those heroes came from something other than TC20 pulls (2 Heroes of the Month, 1 event Summon). So the 5☆s are a pretty big rarity to me. So dropping 5 seems like a lot. I would think closer to 2 or 3. Or varying cost for season.

Another option… I’m not sure if anyone here has played Magic: The Gathering Puzzle Quest (and I haven’t in about 2 years) but they had a great system. When you got dupes (regardless of rarity), you got a special currency. Obviously you get more for higher rarities. As you built up that currency, you could spend it for cards that you did not have. There was also prices based on what set they were in and rarity.
So for example, a Rare would cost less than an Epic would cost less than a Legendary (obviously). But a Season One Legendary would cost Less than a Season Two Legendary and a HotM could have its own cost as well. And you would get a random hero from the purchased season and rarity that you don’t already have.

But in reality… I don’t expect something like that in this game MGT:PQ is far better to their free players than this game is.


Where did that info come from? The latest I’ve seen says it scheduled for this year.

In Start of the Most Epic Empires Decade Yet - 2020 Sneak Peek! SGG said:

Hero Academy: We know you have been eagerly anticipating this, and we are sorry for the delay. Stronghold levels 24 and 25 as well as the Hero Academy will be added to the game during 2020.

Moreover, it is already confirmed that HA will appear in this round of beta:

This contradicts with

hero academy isnt scheduled for this year,

Moderator’s Note

A reminder that Forum Rules prohibit spreading false information:

Hero Academy is slated for Beta starting in v30 testing and release thereafter, as correctly noted by @Ruskin505 and @koziar993 above.

While speculations about further delays are fine, directly misstating the intended release date as being confirmed by Small Giant as being for 2021 is not allowable within Forum Rules, as it contradicts all statements by Small Giant Staff.


Every 1000 alkashards is a bonus transmute. Giving a 4* ascension item, emblems or 5* battle item I think.
The information is available if you click the Alkashards info.

If it was 1000, that would actually be reasonable. I would be on my way to my 2nd one and I hardly use it… but that’s not what it is, unfortunately… it’s 10,000. You need 10,000 Alkashards to create an epic mat, battle item or class emblems.

And how much do you want to bet that the chances of actually getting a mat are ridiculously low. They give Class Emblems away like candy… b/c why not… you need a bunch of them for them to mean anything… So even with that, the chances of producing a mat are likely very low.

They always are.

I love this game, it is a lot of fun, but the game is not good to free players.

check official post from 2018, HA was teased as the greatest thing coming for 2019, players keeping dupes for almost 2 years

SG spreads false info,not me, and im not talking about beta, they may add it soon in beta but not for us

No worries. I wish it was 1000. I’d use it non-stop!
