I like this event, but then I was already a mild fan of the Kalevala epic. I can also use my EHT’s and I feel that the heroes are largely balanced, so no fear of them being nerfed like Kalo or the Christmas clan.
Like any portal there are ideal heroes and less-than ones. The artwork is generally true to the epic and true to antiquated suomalainen dress, so I can understand a lot of people being underwhelmed by it.
I agree though, we have so many new heroes that it has become ridiculous. Despite raiding in mid to high Diamond a lot, I rarely see most of these newer heroes on anyone’s team.
I hate that this event restricts hero usage like the monthly challenges. Whenever I play seasonal stages, for example for easy, I will always build a new 1:1 5 star heroes to match the difficulty. Same with medium and hard stages. So now I can’t play the event my way
I understand why they do this, it’s so that people don’t breeze through the easy stages with their 5k tp teams. Or they ignore the easy stages and only focus on hard. But for people like me who do match the difficulty of the stages, it’s honestly irritating.
Now that I think about it, I think what you said perfectly describes my problem with this new Quest. I have been trying for the past year or two to get Small Giant to make better and newer uses for the obsolete season 1 Heroes and instead keeps pumping out newer and newer Heroes.
Firstly, I don’t find anything wrong with the current seasonal event.
About the point of SG trying to make S1 heroes relevant = that is again not true.
I am not using S1 thee star heroes, but a mix of many seasons, mostly, S 3-4 & 5
I am enjoying the play with non- fully emblemed 5* team with my L29 troops, which would roll thru till 55 stage in Seasonal events.
I have said earlier and repeat that this change in the format is fun and should be applied to other 3 active Seasonal events too.
This is a game and SG is doing their thing, which might not make 100% of player base excited, all the time….
if one hs chosen to associate with this game, in whatever way, then it is equally a player’s responsibility too…. To find ways within the game offering to make it fun for him / her.
