We are planning to make a small adjustment to the way we calculate Hero Powers. As you may know, we give a small bonus in the power based on the rarity of the hero. We do this to reflect the fact that the specials of the rarer heroes tend to be more powerful.
In version 15.1, we are planning to lower this bonus slightly. For example, the power of Epic heroes would decrease by 30 and the power of Legendary heroes would decrease by 43. In practice, this means that the Hero Power of a fully upgraded Legendary could, for example, decrease from 777 to 734.
Please note that this change would only affect the numerical values of Hero Power. The actual effectiveness of the heroes would be completely unaffected.
The motivation for this change is to make the Hero Power reflect the actual power of the heroes more closely, especially when dealing with heroes that have not been levelled up yet. We hope this change would make it easier to gauge the power of your potential opponent, as well as improve the matchmaking for Alliance Wars.
It is worth noting that the change would affect Team Power too. In practice, the Team Power of one of the top players could, for example, drop from 4200 to 3985. Again, the actual strength of the team would be unaffected.

- Make sense! Let’s do it.
- Please don’t do it.
- I don’t care.
