Preface this whole post with this previso:
I personally do not agree with this as a business practice; Its not ethical IMO & should really be changed…
I looked at the pictures you uploaded & also went & double checked in game.
I Believe the text you are referring to is found in the Tooltip (“legends details button”)
The Legends Summons features past heroes of the month.
The Legends Summon has an increased chance for Legendary Heroes
Past Heroes of the Month are included in Legends Summon when 12 months have passed since their original release
I agree that it is really misleading & should probably be changed but in terms of “sueing” I believe their legal loop hole is that they don’t stipulate what the specifics are of the “increased odds”… Not what they are specifically comparing nor what they are comparing it to…
If you compare the straight total 5* hero odds, the Legends Portal does rank wayyyy down the bottom:
- Atlantis = 3.8%
- Valhalla = 3.8%
- Challenge Event = 3.8%
- Seasonals = 3.8%
- Elemental Portal = 3.8%
- Normal “Epic Hero Summons” = 2.8%
- Legends Portal = 2.6%
BUT if you compare the “chance of getting an old Hero of the Month” there isn’t actually ANY other spot where you can summon them anymore… Heroes like Hel or Gravemaker cannot be summoned anymore… So at a guess I would say that would be their ■■■■■■ cheap-■■■ legal loop-hole they would use…
In terms of probability @FrenziedEye, it lines up with the odds; so at lower odds there is lower probability. Higher odds = higher probability.
The only other place that compares for “getting old heroes of the month” is HA10 which has a 5% chance for any non-S1 5* hero. Available in that pool are 25x Old HotM & 25x S2 or Event Heroes which brings it down to a 2.5% chance for an Old HotM; which IS higher odds than the Legends Portal… but isn’t a summons portal so not sure that it could be compared in a legal standing.
