OK, I finished. Of course I’m not feeling as negative as I did at the start.
My score isn’t great (outside the top 10k), I put that down to Oni tile stress, terrible times per level.
It occurred to me that half the stress is not knowing what’s coming further on. For the other challenges this amazing user community has made maps, at L1 you know who you’re going to face at the end.
As a result I had quite a few great purple heroes left over while my other teams were depleted. I was able to finish with my semi-cursed(dark) A-team, a relief.
Yes, I’ll do it again, I’ll do it differently, I’ve learnt something. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
On hindsight I could’ve used 4* s and 3/70 5* s for much longer. My superstar teams peaked too early, got cursed, so I had to fight higher levels with lesser heroes.
50 levels though… man, that’s a grind. And I still don’t like how they force me to craft endless items. On the other hand I enjoyed the item restrictions as you climbed higher.
Also wanted to add my voice to the aesthetics are crap crowd. I mean, seriously! Heroes and the tower itself are the worst/most boring and perfunctory designs I’ve seen in this game! I’m appalled ! There is no excuse!
It does smell like a hurriedly released prototype to my nose…
What I do really like about this is the sense of community I’m feeling in this thread alone, it feels “live”, and that’s awesome!
