More Insights & Reading

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:

Players: You can’t keep releasing such insanely OP heroes!

SG: Hold our beers… How about heroes that start battles with a minion, and +27% attack, and immunity to all status ailments… all undispellable.

Or a hero who starts with full mana which special fills mana of all teammates.

Hahaha doesn’t even needs emblems. Stats are so high that level 80 is enough :rofl::rofl::rofl:

And you guys thought Anne is broken. This is a straight uprade to her, down to the element and class. That said he’s not that much of a upgrade to warrant his chasing.

You mean 13% attack not 27%, I suppose.

This character summons a Mask Minion with 20% health and 13% attack inherited from the character.

What happened to their original passive in beta? They could change element/color?

Happy gaming

Yes, they could change element.
It was almost an instant win against any defense team with only these two new heroes at 4/80 without emblems in an attack team.

Thank you.
So by that, they were super OP, then good that is was changed.
Still a good idea against mono teams.

No. I meant heroes with 27%:

When they come out with heroes and family bonuses that make mockeries of precious nerfs they should reverse those nerfs. The Christmas families bonus related to their minions got nerfed big time then along comes the Masquerade Family less than a year later to make a mockery of the Christmas family bonus. Planned obsolescence is real

Ola galera,eu gostaria muito de ter um print desse heroi novo que sera lançado na black fried,se puderem me manda eu iria agradecer de mais.

Obrigado

Not sure what I’m missing that everyone is freaking out about. Doesn’t seem very op to me. And aren’t there very little masquerade hereos?

I know right! This one is in serious need of a buff. If any match lasts more than 2….maybe 3 turns. Trash, absolute :smirk:

Considering that we have literally only just had Tetisheri release relatively recently, and we’re seeing the jump now from 500% + minor to nearby, turn suddenly into 500% plus minor to all which changes the game once more. In fact, I think this is the first time we’re seeing this. It’s also a lot less punishing if the tank is dead and you’re left with the two wings as you’re not losing damage to one.

It’s worth noting though, that the heal debuff and mana reduction is cleansable, so, overall I can live with this hero… Though, I don’t agree with minor to all, and I would have left it as minor to nearby.

It’s no Fortuna at least!!

How is this possible that this hero doesn’t feel OP to you?

He’s got the same damage as Winifried (Bard) who is at slow speed and has the chain condition. He just throws it at fast and doesn’t look back.

Winifried may have a bit better other part of the special, but Joves effects are also pretty powerful.

How can you compare a chain condition to a hit three, lol.?Should i compare Alucard to healers? This is just a hit three sniper with two extra affects that you need cleanse for. Not a gamechanger by any means. Fast speed makes him good, but not OP.

I swear this is the only place where people whine about improvement. New more powerful cell phone, that’s great! More powerful graphics card… awesome! Bigger TV with higher resolution… what an innovation! New more powerful hero…wah wah my life is obsolete!!

Seriously? Did you even read and understand this heroes card? It hits all and effects all. Too busy insulting peoples concerns to understand what their concerns actually are

It’s the family bonus. Put three of these on a team an those three all START the battle with minions, and indefinite +27% attack, and indefinite immunity to all ailments, can’t be dispelled.

It’s just dumb, over the top, blatant PTW.

For the record, the “minor” damage to all is a “measly” 275%.

275% damage to all…as an afterthought on a fast special.

Yup.
