There’s so many things I want to address in this post… I’m not exactly sure how to organize all my thoughts and so i’ll do the best I can.
The Problem I’m Having
Unfortunately, my 5* heroes that are fully ascended are mostly average and slow (i.e. Azlar, Atomos, QoH, Hatter, etc…) That’s not to say I don’t have some fast ones too (i.e. Lianna, Magni, Seshat, Poseidon and Joon).
My observation in war is that between all the fast+ snipers on defense, combined with the war support, I just can’t win with the exception of really good boards. I’ve resorted to running full mono as that seems to be my only chance of winning. However, even with that, it seems like every mono team I pick, I have very few tiles of that color. By the time I clear enough tiles to bring in the ones I need, half my team is already dead.
- Guin sucked any mana I’ve gained
- GMs dot combined with slashes took a large of amount of health
- Drake’s blind causes my specials to miss
…you get the idea.
The Problem with the Game
I really feel like slow heroes are too weak. They are almost pointless. They don’t do any more damage than a fast sniper does and they are just as squishy. For example, Azlar just has no chance on your war attack team when you’re going up against Sartana, Joon, Alasi, etc. And even if by some miracle he fires, his damage isn’t going to make a significant difference because of Field Aid and healers (i.e. Alby, Guin, etc.).
I watch tons of videos of everyone showing off their war hits (i.e. ucla pack, anchor, etc.) but they have rosters full of fast hitters.
Personally, I think slow heroes need to have their health and defense greatly increased – especially if they are damage dealers (i.e. Azlar, Atomos, etc.) and don’t bring a meaningful secondary ability to their attack (blind, hot, attack/defense boost, etc). The game has become so disproportionately tilted towards fast and very fast heroes that average and definitely slow are worthless. I’m not talking about on your defense team (i.e. Kunchen or Aegir tanks). I’m talking about offensively.

- How do you make slow heroes viable in wars?
