“Ideally, all new Heroes would be perfectly balanced before they are released.”
I know this is challenging. Unique skills can cause unforeseen metrics and synergies. Not to mention what happens when the masses sink their teeth in?
“Our aim is always to ensure each Hero provides some utility in the game.”
Excellent! Being mindful of the ecosystem will be met with resistance…by some who thirst for imbalance… But the goal is appreciated.
This is where trouble runs into paradise.
And can upset the ecosystem.
My primary concern is not how long it takes to grind and develop a 5* roster.
I’m ok with that.
But… when you combine that it does take years… to develop a full 5* roster
With "exciting and desirable" pulls.
The amount of time is presenting our roster to eventually…become:
Which eventually begs the question: Why pull at all?
I do understand the goal. And hope that your success is matched by enjoyment of your long term customers!
Rather than a feeling of helplessness.
Exciting and desirable is wonderful.
But, I hope you can achieve this while maintaining the ecosystem!
