I was thinking about a way that could help people get 5* heroes. As i heard Anchor suggest a “pity meter” on pulls before. Which is an idea i really like. So if you pull a certain amount of heroes (say 50) and dont get a single 5* then you would be guaranteed one the next pull. And anytime you do pull a 5* the pity meter would reset back down to 0. So you would at least be guaranteed a 5* every 50 pulls (or whatever number they decide. 100 probably makes more sense). But i was thinking this doesnt really benefit F2P and C2P players because it would take them months or years to do that many pulls. Although if people knew they would get a 5* at a certain point maybe more people would be willing to spend money. I dont think it would put paying players at a huge advantage over F2P and C2P players.
Another idea i thought of though when i was thinking how to help out everybody to get 5s is to introduce a Legendary Hero token. Just like an Epic Hero Token but it would be a guaranteed 5. Id like to see it be able to produce past HotMs, Season 2 and Event 5s as well but at a much lower drop rate. You could put these as very, very rare rewards. Maybe even only for completing certain things. Like they dont have the possibility to drop when you get loot. You could only get them from reaching certain milestones in the game. Like when you reach a certain xp level like 30-40 or killing 200 titans or once you max a 4 of each color. Could be other reasons to get them but make it so you wouldnt get one until you have been playing for a decent amount of time. And make it so people would only recieve them like 2-3 a year.
It would solve the problem of people playing for 6 months or more and not having any 5s. It wouldnt give anybody an advantage because everyone would be able to get the same amount. It might help C2P and F2P close the advantage gap with P2W players. I dont know. I just feel horrible when i hear these stories of people doing 100 pulls and getting no 5s. At the same time though, i do want the game to shift to where you have to pay to stay competitive. I really admire the game for not giving P2W a huge advantage or at least still making them grind it out like everybody. The fact F2P and C2P player can compete is a testament to how well it was designed.
Im sure there flaws with my idea of a Legendary Hero Token but i also Know Small Giant reads the forums so maybe this topic could be a catalyst to something that gets more people 5*s.
Let me know what you guys think. Maybe you can add to or modify my idea and it could become something plausible or useful. I hate seeing so many complaints in the forum. I hope SG implements some stuff to make the players happier.
