So here comes the real question related to trainer troops.
How are they going to be released?
Are they going to be available as a bonus in the regular troop summon [or variation of, for example whatever the Black Friday Summon is going to be] for ETTs?
We are approaching Ninja Event. People hoarded ETTs for months since the last one was moved. It’s expected people will zero their ETT balance on that Ninja Troop summon as usual. What if the next week we have a Black Friday Troop summon where the trainer troops are added? Everyone’s already spent their ETTs so only way to get Trainer Troops is to summon them with gems.
Of course it’s just a theorycrafting now, but sadly, SG recently has reputation of holding off on releasing information to ensure people make uneducated decisions instead of hoarding resources (see - Atlantis Costumes added to beta just right after Atlantis, ToL extra chest announcement right after ToL event etc).
As always, I wanted to spend my 70 ETTs right after Ninja Portal is open but this idea has me torn. How about you guys? Are you planning to spend your ETTs on Ninjas, or hoard them just in case Black Friday Summon allows to use them with chance to get trainer troops?
