I dislike 1* tournaments, but it’s not a big deal. It’s currently 1 per cycle. 5* are used for everything if you have them, so fewer there is good IMO.
I think the 2* (and to an extent the 3*) are where it gives the best chance for average/new players. One of the people in my alliance finished in the top 1% last 2* tourney. Made me eat my words on having a +20 2* healer that I’d laughed about the week before!
Of course, eventually the whales will level up a cadre of 2* and 3* heroes if it’s a set rotation.
Leave out the 1* and I’d be quite happy with it. Not that I particularly like 2* tourneys but once in a month would be okay so that beginners have an opportunity to compete with everyone. 1* heroes simply have too little variation in special skills to be fun.
Although I’d prefer to just have more 3* tournaments instead of 1* and 2*.
I think it 1* and 2* shouldn’t be there in the first place. The game is clearly divided between 3*, 4*, and 5* categories and it is noticed in the challenge events.
1* and 2* to go by temporarily till you get full 3* team (which is easily achievable from tc 12 if you didn’t get lucky with daily and silver tokens)
It would ba a 10 slot waste to have maxed 2* and 1* solely for tournaments. Plus, if it was to be added permanently, it is really fast and easy for older players to prepare and max a 1*/2* team. And the competition level will be as high.
For me 4* tourneys just seem like the best all around. You get a good balance of interesting hero options and accessibility to many players.
1*-2* is just poo flinging.
3* tourneys are ok, but ultimately there’s a lack of strategic heroes (even though recent additions and costumes have improved that). It always feels like sniper-on-sniper violence where whoever gets more mana wins, hardly anyone can stand more than a few hits.
5* bloody battle and buff booster are ok, but tough on thinner rosters, especially when color restricted.
5* rush attack is just ridiculous. Teams with heroes like Alberich and Kunchen are practically unbeatable if you don’t have a deep 5* team.
4* is best in all formats because there is so much variety on most rosters for experience players, even if F2P.
But i still believe there is a better way to give “less fortunate”(idk what else to use, hopefully it’s not offensive, if it is well just another day at the office i guess) a way to compete with one with another for 1% loot without imposing 1/2* tourneys that punish more people than they help
