New player here, so I apologize beforehand if I’m overlooking something or this has been posted already, but I thought the devs might want this feedback:
The $4.99 new player bundle includes some gems and a handful of goodies, including an epic summon coin (the big prize). I’ve been playing for a couple of days and found the game enjoyable, so I bought the bundle and used the coin. I summoned Dawa, a 3-star yellow offense hero.
As everybody knows, the game provides every new player with Bane, who is… a 3-star yellow offense hero. Though I’m new, I quickly learned that having two of the same colored hero is, generally speaking, a major disadvantage because it makes the outlier gem color virtually worthless.
Let me say outright that I’ve played plenty of games with the accursed “gacha” system; I know it’s luck of the draw, and my luck obviously sucked. However, the whole scenario left me wondering - why is it even possible to draw a redundant, fairly useless hero in this one-time bundle? I don’t think this is being greedy; I would’ve been fine with literally ANY other color hero (or even a yellow of greater rarity).
For somebody just starting, I feel like the game welcomed me, took my money, and basically extended a middle finger right off the bat. It has certainly made me think twice about spending another dime on the game.
My salt aside, I would really encourage the devs to exclude 3-star yellows from this bundle if they don’t want to run off paying players who are just getting into the game.
