Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 17.5% chance of summoning Marcel.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 69 times out of 100, you’ll get Marcel by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Marcel by pull 156 (46,800 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Marcel by pull 240 (62,400 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 31 out of every 100 people won’t get Marcel by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 309,196 of those players wouldn’t get Marcel
  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Marcel by the 156th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero: times, 56,280 of those players wouldn’t get Marcel
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Marcel by the 240th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four::zero: times, 10,013 of those players wouldn’t get Marcel

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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:

he gets buffed? now hits %300. one of the hardest hitter of 4*'s. also def down is so amazing. a must have hero.

He seems like an upgrade to Buddy as a titan defense dropper. Good for those of us who don’t have Frigg.

Is Marcel worth giving Paladin Emblems to?

*cough*

I will definitely be giving Sorcerer emblems to him.

Marcel works well with Almur. He’s worth it

Well I have 3 Almur all Max up but with Marcel i have no idea what is his position in the team and where he belongs??

I would guess flank, definitely not a tank. Unless someone can give maybe why he might make a good tank.

Yes most definitely. I used to run Buddy on titans for his defense down but those minions really slow things down, plus 3 turns just isn’t enough, and Buddy’s tile damage is, for lack of a better phrase, pathetic.

I got two Marcel. I plan to level both of them. In my opinion, he is an offensive version of Buddy.
Without considering his defense down and situational attack up, the fully emblemed Marcel (attack, health, defense path) will offer 747 attack, 680 defense, 1483 health, which is getting close to Killhare status (741, 756, 1382). He is the best offensive green 4* star hero!!!

By using two of them, you can also enjoy his family bonus.

See this:

So unfortunately, you won’t be benefitting from the family bonus without someone else, like D’Andre, around

Hansel disagrees with 20 characters.

I have Hansel maxed and fully emblemed. He is great and I used him a lot. I agree He probably has slight edge over Marcel in War raids. But Marcel is definitely more useful for event and weekly tournament. None of them is really good for Titian or on defense. So I would say that it is a tie. IMO, weekly tournament and event is more rewarding in terms of loots and emblems. I would like to have powerful hero for those events. For war, the single hero has much less impact on the overall performance.

Marcel is no doubt a winner and slightly better than the pulverizer trio (though the defense downs sticks for only half the turns). The situational bonus +50% attack puts him over the top IMO. I’d still crown Hansel as overall raid/war winner for 4* greens however. His special at fast mana speed is one of the best.

Strongly disagree. Unless you have Frigg, Marcel is the closest thing to a green ramming pulverizer and almost a must for titans. Yes there is Buddy but his attack stat is just plain pathetic, and the minions also slow you down during titan hits so he’s actually not the best to drag to titans if you have better defense down alternatives.

You are right. Marcel is better than Hansel for titian. My point is Marcel is better than Hansel. Do you agree?

For event and tournament, mana speed is not that critical. I agree Hansel is better suited for raid/war. But there are so many heroes that you can use for war.

Apples and oranges really.

If you need a mana controller then Hansel can’t be replaced; if you need a green defense dropper to enhance the power of your green stack you take Marcel. Marcel+Almur/Evelyn/Fogg will make snipers one shot just about everything, but Hansel will stop dangerous heroes from wrecking your whole team. They do very different things and have very different roles and I don’t think you can say one is “better” than the other.
