This is my last information on this:

Only @Petri can tell when it will be fixed.

I do not know.
We will see if they will include it in the release notes or not.

It would not surprise me if The Wizard of Oz legendarium is being considered for Season 6. There are lots of books and characters galore that could be adapted much like the Grimm fairy tales (Grimforest), Alice in Wonderland (Wonderland) and the Legends of Avalon and Kalevala that they have already done. It would sure make it easier to modify already existing characters and storylines than have to create all new content and, being in the public domain, be easily obtainable and recognizable. There are many characters that have barely been in any movies like Professor H.M. Wogglebug, T.E., The Gump, Jack Pumpkinhead, Ozma, Tik-Tok, Unc Nunkie, Shaggy Man, King Rinkitink and The Glass Cat, to name a few. Would love to see these interpreted a different way than just for children’s stories.

Toto’s name change immediately after his release makes me think WOO only just started development and original toto was an oversight they missed when it came to the naming

It’s also highly likely WOO is season 6, the worldbuilding is already there like the various lands, the yellow brick road, munchkin land etc.

Bad news for those who waited for the costume bonus adjustments for HotM, S2 and S3 costumes:

Today I have seen that the HoTM bonus is still at 3/3/6/1% instead of 5/5/10/5% in Beta.
I have asked Staff for clarification.

Here is their answer.

So no change will happen on them :frowning:

NOOOOOO!!!

Is this final? :open_mouth:

this is absolutely ridiculous and embarrassing. take a look at the new heroes now with crazier status and skills.

Thanks for the update. Sad they aren’t keeping s2 costumes consistent with s1 and s3.

Thank you for pushing through with this topic.

It’s sad that there are inconsistencies.

Zynga/SGG probably have some marketing strategy lined up for S3 heroes. There are more 5* heroes in S3 and all the popular (more marketable) ones will be togged out with a 5% mana CB, that drives up their saleability straight away.

Picture Alfrike with a costume, +5 mana gen
Sorceror +4% mana gen
Throw in Magic 29 = +20% mana gen
13.5 tiles => 10.5 tiles

Xnolphod +10% mana = 1.35 tiles
Only need 9.15 tiles to activate Alfrike.
That definitely increases her normal utility.

I have unofficially taken up the mantle of hero card wiki updater and was wondering if you had any pull with the developers to get a leveled preview card of Myztero and Enigmo I can post there. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I think V54 could possibly give us a sneak peek at Season 6

I think it is highly unlikely.

Season 5 heroes have arrived to Beta in this year’s January.

I am not expecting Season 6 in Beta until February or March in 2023.

Season IV has arrived to Beta in 2020 December.

So my best guess is February as they are seem to be showing the heroes in Beta 1 month later than before.
