I think what you’ve discovered is, you can’t buy 5* heroes you can only buy more opportunities. It’s OK this is only a moment in the game. You will have other moments, better moments. Slow down my friend and create your own opportunities. My best 4* came from training camp lvl 13 and my best 5* came from a hero token. Hit the quests, events and like rook has said, in only God knows how many posts, build up your training camps. Best wishes, I hope a good moment is right around the corner.
Totally agree Rook. I used to be narrow minded on getting 5 star hero’s because others were with lower levels but I fought on and now all I want and need is a 4 star yellow hero. When that happens I will have two 4 star hero’s in every colour which is fantastic against the titans.
I also have a fully maxed team of 3 star hero’s for the events but I totally forgot that the troops had to be 2 star so I was rushing around trying to level up some troops. I managed to get most colour troops to level 5 at least. I won’t make that mistake for the next challenge event. Lol
I agree Alex… their programmers are kinda crap. There’s random, and then there’s greedy, let’s give people •••• so they spend money.
I just the other day wrote support and told them, I have no desire to spend money, when they are actively trying to •••• me with 3* crap.
And I got a form letter back.
I’m probably going to quit this game and stop wasting my time. It’s obviously geared to only benefit heavy spenders.
Oh I dunno. I’ve spent $55 total here over ten months. I didn’t get a 5* till I had the ascension material to level it (took a while!), but I have nineteen 4* heroes and have been having fun for ages.
Depends what you expect from the game I guess. I highly recommend a TC20 if you don’t have one yet.
@rook, I’m grinding toward TC20… still need SH20 =)
You’ll get there soon! When you start making heroes, be sure to post your results here:
P.S. It’s an enormous thread; click on the page numbers at the bottom right to slide down quickly.
RNG is RNG and nothing you can do about it. Use your EARNED gems to shorten timers on the 2 12 hour quests, is a far better investment then buying single rolls or saving forever for a 10 pull. If you want rolls on heroes nickel and dime buy all the good deals that come around about once a week or so and RNG will eventually roll in your favor. I have been playing for about 9 months and have 7 5* heroes 2 are Hotm and a dozen or so 4* heroes and have spent a total of $65 so far nickel and diming my 10 pulls. Ascension items are far more important then have a large stable of heroes all stuck at 60 with very little ascension items to show. Doing the 2 daily quests twice a day will usually net you 2-3 elemental chests a month.
After about 30 boxes, i finally get one special box, killing very fast 150 dark enemies, i hopefully expected that i get a good 4* or maybe a 5* star hero.
So guess what i get this time again?
You’re right, it was again a 3* crap, i already get the fourth time.
Are you kidding me?!
Now i’m really upset, the next time i’ll get again the same 3* crap, i’ll quit this game.
The normal response: How many pulls have you done?
I presume you mean epic tokens from the chests, they do not by any means guarantee you good heroes. The epic pull has something like 70%< chance to produce 3*, so your four in a row is not that unthinkable.
I’d say you have already been lucky in getting that many epic tokens (granted you do not give a time window in which this has happened).
I didn’t get that many epic tokens, the most heros i got, is because of spending money for diamonds.
About the last 15 heros i summoned (with diamonds or epic tokens, it doesn’t matter) , were all 3crap and only one 4 hero.
This is not normal, seeing that other player with lower level have already two, three, four or five 5* heros.
Many players are reporting 3/4/5* heroes for free from a TC20. I personally have received seven 4* in about 30 days.
If I were you, I would be working toward a TC20 (Training Camp 20) to attempt to get these heroes for free, if you are having bad luck on spending. TC13 will give guaranteed 3* with a chance at 4*, but the 5* are found at TC20 (or from a lucky free hero Summon token).
Actually it is quite normal.
Also a players level has nothing to do with how many 4*/5* heros they have. You have no idea how much money they’ve spent. Its all about luck and cash.
The thing that kills me is you can only see their defense team heroes. Say a level 20 player has five 5* heroes at various levels of completion. You cannot see his inventory, whether or not he has the ascension materials to ascend said heroes.
Heroes without mats means a long waiting game.
A level 20 player with a full team of 5* had probably burned quite a few bucks getting there.
More often than not, said players have their 5* at ascension level 2 or maybe 3, because, after their spenditure, they face the same chore as the rest of us: ascension materials.
I’m soon level 40, and have played for a little more than 8 months. During the course, I have spent about 40$. The best I got for this was bigger hero storage :). I am now leveling my first 5*, provided by lvl 20 training camp. And I wouldn’t have been able to max this hero before now (I did get Thorne early on from a random token, but he doesn’t count).
However, I have a broad selection of maxed 3* and 4*, make my way through events and also stand my ground decently against 9* titans. I’m fine and in no rush, but nevertheless I wouldn’t mind ascension items dropping a tad more generously (at least from higher level titans, which have given me nada for “a long while”).
You can’t think that 8 months to get 1 5 star is normal and accepted
Considering that the game is set up to reach Tc20 at best in 6 months or so, it is perfectly normal for this kind of game.
You probably mean is not normal in a more “general” way, but you can’t compare this game to… bof… Tekken?
Games where you have to improves villages/cities or so are long as hell as well.
Actually I’m well on my way to a 4-month TC20.
Just wanted to brag, you point is still good
Duh, without skipping and having resources to do some trainings?
Just curious, pretty sure was 6 months or so.
It is acceptable if you consider how long it takes to build up the ascension materials to max a 5*. Sure, you can snag a 5* early on either by luck or throwing cash into hero rolls, but they’re going to sit at 2/60 for a nice while.
And you think that is ok?
