I’ve made a topic about this before asking people to throw around some ideas for hero rebalancing. This time I want to straight up ask - why won’t someone (as in - devs, not us players derping around on the forums) review all the heroes and make them a fine ascension choice?
I just read that Quintus topic on the front page here. It’s ridiculous that someone has ONE purple 5* and NO real expectations to get another one in the near future, but is STILL raking their mind wondering just how horrible a choice it is to invest the Tabards into his LEGENDARY hero.
He should be GLAD he got that hero. He should only be wondering whether he’s worth ascending if he had another that does the same or if he had two and was wondering which one will work better for his team and playstyle.
Right now too many heroes are in the “garbage” category. “Better than nothing, but maybe not even”.
Small Giant, please do something about this. It’s killing the joy of playing this game sometimes.
a) top-tier teams are so similar to each other, it reduces the fun of making tactics
b) receiving a long-awaited 5* hero can be a bitter disappointment
c) it’s not FUN to have to hold onto your ascension items for gods know how long even though you do finally HAVE a hero who could use them
d) it’s AWFUL to be a player who doesn’t sit with their nose in charts to find out they have ascended a useless hero and have to wait another year for the ascension items
e) it’s dumb to have to resort to using 4* heroes when one has 5*s at hand because they’re that unworthy of using
Why is it not something on the list of things to do? Why not talk to your extra experienced players (no, I don’t mean myself) and fix the shitty heroes to help them match up to the likes of Hel, Athena, Alberich, or Ares?
Wouldn’t it be fun to NOT face Ares in 80% of the battles backed up by Hel and Alberich?
Wouldn’t it be fun to actually want to collect ALL the heroes (for the end-gamey players) and have reasons to use them? To have to plan out various teams and mix and match the best compositions?
It’s not something that requires long hours of coding, it’s not something that will make the community mad (buffs, not nerfs). It’s not something that will make people spend less, or enjoy the game less, or play it less. I don’t understand why the only thing done are some miniscule buffs that don’t really change the balance of power at all.
