I’m ready to spend 13000 gems to get Xmas hero's didn't found epic or legendary

You aren’t guaranteed to get the HOTM, you get a chance to get it - 1.3% chance.

I’ve seen some people pull the HOTM with tokens, 1 pull, 10x summons. It’s all random. Don’t feel too badly.

Please read this thread before spending:

Hey, don’t feel bad. I did 2x 10 rolls right when the portal opened and have 0 holiday heroes or HOTM to show for it.

Alternatively, my boyfriend did 1x 10 roll and got 1 rudolph, 1 buddy, and 2 HOTM. Lol!

Not gonna stop be from doing 3 more 10 rolls :stuck_out_tongue: I think I will also draw my line at 5x 10 rolls

My main goals were Evelyn and Mother North. After 10 tokens and 3 10x pulls, I got Santa, Buddy, Rudolph and Evelyn. I called it quits after the 3rd pull because I wanted to start to save for the next event.

Bottom line, you’re not guaranteed squat. I understand it’s frustrating, but it’s the way the game is, and it’s now VERY clear what your odds are of getting something. The last time I went “all out” to try to get a hero, I spent WAY too much money and didn’t get the hero I wanted. My advice to you is have a budget and once that budget is gone, understand that you won’t be getting that hero (at least until next Christmas if the same heros are released).

Spend 13000 more so you double the chances :smiley:
The gems are cheap if you live in America, because you can buy 10k gems with 0.5% of your monthly salary. (My cousin lives in America and makes 20k $ / month with minimal wage paying job).
But if you live in any middle eastern EU country, let’s say Bulgaria where I am from, you’d probably have to pay 50%-150% of your monthly salary! (Minimal wage is 510BGN = 295.50 dollars per month for 8h workday or 255BGN=148$$/month for 4h workday. Depends if you are a student and work 4h/day or have a full time job).
1 USD = 1.72183 BGN today
But in the game 10k gem pack costs 99.99$ or 219.99BGN, for some GREEDY reason, instead of 172BGN. In other words, it’s better to buy packs in $$$, not national currency. In fact it’s way cheaper - because the overprice itself(50 BGN) is actually 30% of some student’s monthly salary or the pack costs 86% of the total monthly income if you have 4h job. (The 10k gems pack costs 43% of the monthly salary if you have full time job on minimal wage.)

So yeah, the difference is somewhere between 100 times and you complain you’ve wasted your gems/money? Man up and face reality, at least you had a CHANCE to get the heroes, consider yourself LUCKY, Narada82!

do not invest money! and the problem is solved, if the chance to get something was real, I would be the first to write everywhere that the game is worth paying the money :grin: if the random support service that is responsible for all questions is working, then the chance to get the heroes without paying money is high enough, if it does not work, you will not get it for money :grin:

To put this into perspective, an alliance mate spent over 400 dollars US on season 2 to try and get Inari / Mitsuko or both. Got neither.’
That same person spent 300 dollars US trying to get Guinevere last go round. Nope.
700 dollars US laughs at you 130 dollars US. :slight_smile:

Okay, if it’s just one person I can see you squeaking. A different alliance mate spent 300 dollars trying for Victor in Halloween event. Nope. more than double your gems.

More money does NOT equal results.

Save your money. Be happier. become C2P (cheap-to-play) or F2P (free-to-play).
Fewer expectations, heavier wallet, happier surprises.

Ahem!

Please read Forum Rules so I don’t have to edit or delete posts.

(I deeply suspect the $20k/mo post was to wind up the OP. Again, trolling is against Forum Rules.) :slight_smile:

Sorry blush

How about 20k a year is minimum wage?
You spend money in this game hoping to actually get the desired outcome. But really you are just gambling for non tangible outcomes. Only go in with how much you are willing to lose.

I spend within my entertainment budget. If I am willing (for example) to drop $30-40 on a movie, popcorn, drink and candy for two, I am fine with spending that here.

Other people may have larger or smaller budget than me. Your mileage may vary. Naturally, don’t exceed your budget on an ephemeral product like a big-screen movie watching or in-game app. :wink:

Even though you get a 3* guaranteed, you are gambling for a chance to get 4*/5* heroes of your dreams.

You are absolutely correct when you repeat the gambling principle of “if you can’t afford to lose it, don’t gamble with it.”

This is exactly how hubby and I look at it. We’ve gotten away from spending $40 for a movie and popcorn for 2. Instead we do Empires and Puzzles with a Redbox rental chaser. The seats are more comfortable and my Carmel popcorn is better than anything at the theater :grin:
