Let me start by saying that I enjoy this game and even still plan to spend some money on it, but I learned a lesson this event.
The odds of pulling a 5* event hero are so low that it’s not worth trying very very hard.
Now if you’re willing to drop $1000 to practically (but not definitely guarantee you get a specific hero) then by all means proceed. If you’re a multimillionaire, it’s worth it to spend a small percentage of your free cash for something you enjoy. I respect that, I think it’s cool, it helps fund the game, and I would love to be there some time in the future.
If you’re not in that boat I would say that you probably shouldn’t try too hard. Set aside a small amount of fun gambling money. Realize the odds are not in your favor. Be ready to get a lot of 3*, some 4* feeder heroes or duplicates for war, and if you get something awesome that’s great… but don’t try all that hard since if you do, it still very well might not happen.
I read in another post that the average number of rolls to get a specific event hero is 246. That’s around $639.60 depending on what you pay for gems. Some will take more and some less. The average to get a HOTM is 82 rolls. These are very low odds. Theoretically it could take over 1,000 pulls before you get the hero that you want.
I’m looking forward to Season 2 and the other monthly events. I’m even looking forward to Knights of Avalon coming back since there’s still one hero that I would like to get from it. I just know not to take it so seriously and look at funds spent as a low chance gamble and not really something to try hard for. I’m a little bummed out that the odds for the returning HOTM will also probably be similar so even though I would LOVE an Alby, Ares, Athena, Zeline, Hel, etc… It’s not worth going all out due to the very high odds of not succeeding in getting a specific one.
Best of luck to all of you in your future rolls. I hope you wish me the same.
All the best,
