The Diary of the FTP who finished 53rd in legendary

Also, a big thank you from a frustrated player. I am going back to the VIP pass only. I paid for some gems last month and did a decent pull, but at ten months of play, no 5*. I am also frustrated by lack of mats to level up my 4*'s, so I am backing off a bit on expectations and re-reading your post. I find it inspirational.
I was considering quitting, so you “saved me”, LOL. Thanks again my gaming friend.

Great post, great achievements, great (FTP) roster. All amazing and you man got my respect. I do respect every single FTP people because i am FTP as well and i know how hard things are for us. It’s easy to spend money and get everything you want and then say “I am great”. Yes, but only that they are NOT. The real “Greats” are people who can achieve it all without spending a single cent on a game :wink: It’s my 13th month in this game, i made a forum post on my 1 year anniversary, improved my roster a bit in a month and have also achieved some personal records such as Global rank 1 and top places in challenge events. Still a long way till i can match your 5* hero numbers but a lot of time difference as well.
You have done some really nice job there, again my congratulations and don’t give up :slight_smile:

Brilliant post, thank you! I’ve also been playing two years and dont spend money but it;s a very different story for me I’m afraid. In all that time I’ve only managed to get 7 5* heroes and only one of those is fully ascended. Frustrating but I love the game so I plod on. However I realise now that I’ve missed out on not using L20 training. I’ve only got one training camp up to L20 and only used that about 5 times - in all cases pulling 3+s, so I just gave up. Reading your stats has made me realised that was a mistake so I’ll now go off and get that going!

Excellent post. Great encouragement for the little-to-no spenders in the game like myself.

@miteddy get TC20 going asap. I’ve been running one for well over a year now and have managed to pull around 20 5* from it. There have been a couple long stretches in there with nothing (one was 5 months), and one stretch of two weeks where I pulled 3 (all red), including 2 in a row.

I agree with @nevarmaor. You should now run at least 3 or 4 TC20s all the time to catch up with 5* heroes, depending on whether you have other urgent project to work on. My worst streak was getting 17 3* heroes in a row but I’ve also got 3 5* heroes in 4 days.

I’ve been keeping record of all my TC20 pulls since the very beginning. If you’re interested, I can post it here.

By the way, you said you have maxed only one 5* hero. Which 5* heroes do you have? And do you have the mats for them?

I’m, going to! Got one going now and have started on getting my other training camps up to 20. Thanks for the tip!

I’d definitely be interested to see that thanks. At present I’ve got nothing else pressing so have taken the advice and have 1 L20 running and have set about getting my other two training camps to 20.
I’ve maxed Domitia and the rest are currently:
Gregorion, Sartana and Drakefong all waiting on mats - so frustrating. I also have Master Lepus who I did have mats for and I’ve currently got him to L63. I have Margaret and I did start levelling her up but I honestly don’t get what she contributes at all -I’f I’ve got that wrong I’d love to hear your take.
All in all they are not the most inspiring bunch really so if I can pull some good ones from L20 it would be great!

A lot of people here are less than enamoured of Margaret. I don’t have her but I don’t really have any problems facing her as long as I ignore her until last. Charge my specials and wait until her dodge is finished.

All of these are decent heroes. I have Margaret maxed and she is fantastic against sniper teams and ok against blue titans, but pretty underwhelming everywhere else. I wouldn’t recommend ascending her as your first 5* green. Have you been completing the rare quests, you get one of each 4* mat every 70 days so you should get a set of mats for a 5* hero for 1 year and 2 months just from there. It’s the best way to get 4* items.

Here is a TC20 thread:

@Rook, I think you may be interested in that. This is my TC20 data:

Thanks for that - I’ll get Gregorion finished first then and get back to Margaret later now I know she has a use! Yes I always do the rare quests - but always seem to not get the mats I’m waiting for! How it goes I guess - I’ve had Sartana for a year and still not got what I need, whereas I already had the mats for Lepus from the day I got him.
