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:

Stats were massively increased. Damage slightly dropped but DOT is higher.

All in all, I’d say given the huge amount of damage, this one will likely get nerfed in the future.

Here we go again… these new heroes are overpowered and doing too many things at once. I fail to understand how you can roll out the Big Balance Turd-on-Players but keep releasing these monsters in the meantime.

Does 410% to 3 not seem ridiculously high to anyone else? I suppose we should be grateful it’s not at fast speed, and that it even got reduced from beta…

Not to mention the sheer level of burn damage as an increase from beta (at a trade off to -10% direct damage).

What happened to not relying on special skills?

My final point though …. I can only hope they’re releasing these heroes with a view of not further increasing their stats in the balance update, because so far? Barkley spiked from the top-end average of 1115 total 2LB TP score to 1130… and now Hurricane is tearing that up with 1150 TP??

I had to scratch my eyes reading this card. This is totally opposite of “balance” that SG has been preaching. 410% to 3, at average, plus 620 DOT to 3, and absorb 50% damage as health, on top of it another +20% attack stack against weaker element.

How broken is this?

EDIT: 904 BURN DAMAGE IN GAME, NOT 620!

Dont forget those passives…

The gist of our new direction is that Heroes’ power will now be allocated a bit more to raw stats, and a bit less to Special Skills. In addition, specific hard-cap values and rules have been set for many different types of Special Skills (e.g., “damage-to-all attacks should not go above N%”). As a result, Special Skills do a bit less damage whereas normal attacks (=Troop damage) do a bit more damage.

We believe that placing a reasonable upper limit on the power of Special Skills in this manner will make the game feel more FUN and FAIR, as less battles will be straight-up decided by the very first volley of Special Skills.

From staff SG.

Lol.
launches a new hero at an average speed of 410% damage target n nearbys. and high burn damage.

does this seem too hypocritical?
or EP players are clowns before their eyes.

Cue the whales…

Couple of hundred players will have this guy maxed and blemmed and 2LB and appearing in their defence teams within a couple of hours.

And thats why it keeps happening.

OMG that passive. Perfect broken hero. Quenell looks like a puppy beside hurricane.

They mean all that…

Just with older hero’s.

New stuff will always be OP, then nerfed, because they don’t want you to be content with your roster, even if it was OP at a time.

And i get that. The issue is the turnaround.

OP heros released a few months ago are weak conpared to new OP heros. There is no limit.

We at 1150 power but guess what:

We will see 2k power, very, very, soon.

I have this suspicion that they dont expect the game to last and will just exponential increase hero strength until they shut down service.

@PlayForFun In game it is 904 burn damage!!

I’m laughing and falling off my chair reading that card in game!

Good ol" SG. They couldn’t even wait until after the balance changes went live to do this. Some of the #nospend must have hurt them some to do something this idiotic.

OP hero, I’m waiting his nerf :rofl:

Guys, it is 904 burn DOT damage in game! Not 620 as per this post.

How.ridiculous.is.this.?

@Petri Do you have any comment on how ridiculous this is? After that long post by your end stating SG will be prioritizing stats and not special skills, this is what you came up with?

grateful he is not fast?
his average condition is already ridiculous.
Aramis LB+2 alone has dealt around 900 damage. especially with this hero at 410% damage. maybe it will be up to 1000 damage / hero.

I will give one comparison:
This is Azlar’s C2 skill:
Deals 310% damage to targets and nearby enemies.
The target and nearby enemies receive 400 Burn damage over 4 turns. The caster absorbs 40% of the deal Burn damage as health.
btw C2 Azlar is slow.
