I made a huge stink about good characters being reduced. Boldtusk is going to be reduced from 32% to 27% max skill.
I learned all of these reasons why to do so. SOme of it makes sense. The issue might be that players are not replacing their boldtusks with 5s. Developers would like it if players purchased 5 replacements. Boldtusk being so great, there is little insentive to get 5*'s. I get that. You know what else is an insentive to get 5s ACTUALLY GETTING ONE!!! There is no guarantee that by paying money you will be gifted with the 5 of YOUR CHOICE! None what’s so ever.
I do agree that if there was a way to buy a 5* character, then yeah people should be motivated to buy one. That is pay money for a special coin that will give you a 5* and only 5*. Doesn’t exist though.
But lets say that was the case. Then why not make better 5s worth buying? How about a Female Boldtusk like character that has 50% healing with the defense and add to that cure all poisons and curses? Leave BoldTusk alone and make a better 5.
However before we can get to that, in order to motivate players to BUY SOMETHING specific like a 5*, you need to guarantee that money spent gets you a 5*, or all of this is a moot point.
The bottom line is this. Whether Blodtusk is a 4* or secret 5* it does not change the fact that you still have to roll for him, you still have to hope to get him. There are no guarantees in this game whether you spend money or not that you will get a super 4* star or if you land a great 5*. The game is the same and if people want him, they will spend the money to roll for him, just like any other 5*.
