Hero tokens aren’t plentiful, so I like using them at the best time. I like these Cupid Family heroes but how do you all think they compare to the others? I have no need to pull at Springvale or the Sand heroes which are coming up.
What are the rest of you planning to do for the portal?
I’ll use what I have and not try too hard. They are good heroes, but the artwork has put me off and none of them are particularly drool worthy. I’m sure we’ll get great ones for the next portals. Springvale will need an overhaul though. New heroes won’t be enough to tempt me with the possibility of the old ones and s1s. Kalevala is probably the next great thing imo.
In general, I tried to aim to get the 4☆ event heroes. But that was before my summon attempt at the Springvale portal last year, where over - I believe it was 30 - Hero Tokens resulted in zero event heroes at all. Now I only spend them, if I am very hooked on the HoTM, because the chance to get anything other than S1 is so small.
I used the few I had. I think Cupido and Himeros would be fun additions. Suddenly that little heal from Milena and Kiril is more helpful. I’m sure Springvale will drop new stuff, and Kalevala/Halloween/Christmas are all stacked (even with m&m nerf, and as always roster dependent). I’d say look at what the heroes do and think about your roster needs- do the heroes offered currently change what you can do? Would they replace a hero on your Titan or war teams? Or alternatively, do you think that new mindless healing would make the game more fun for you? That should be the first thing, honestly.
Artwork doesn’t factor in to my decisions at this point (I’d rock a Teletubby looking character if it brought me more wins. ).
To me, it’s pull if you haven’t gotten the HotM yet, and stop when you do. The chance of getting some hero that you want is so small that it really doesn’t matter which portals you save for. It’s more about the added chance of getting a new 5 star via the 1.3% chance of HotM. There just aren’t enough tokens avalable for you to base use/not use on the rarities in the portal.
The rate of 5* seasonal is significantly lower in this event (1.0%) than it was at Christmas (1.6%), so unless this is the new bad, I’ll hoard my EHT until I have a better chance of maybe getting one new 5*.
—In particular, in my case, it’s not like I have many 5* from existing seasons anyway: Springvale 0, Sand Empire 0, Kalevala 1 (and it’s Ilmarinen, who’s mostly a dud for me), Morlovia 1, Santa 1. So… “the odds are better but you might get a duplicate” isn’t much of an argument against pulling from existing seasons in my case.
For someone who has several existing heroes from a given season, including any heroes (and costumes, where they exist) really desired, it might make more sense to pull at lower-odds seasonal portal with only new heroes.
Also there’s only one new 4* and one new 3* in this portal, so if you really like them then yay, but if not…. welcome to Just More Food and pity counter ticks.
To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up changing Seasonal Portals to 1% odds. I say this because that is what they are in PC. I definitely notice a difference. While I still consider myself lucky with my seasonal summons overall there, it is noticeably lower then here (I’ve pulled fewer seasonal 5* heroes there compared to E&P in relation to total pulls done). It is frustrating, and I really hope they don’t go this route, but when they released the prior portal at such low odds compared to prior Seasonal Portals I had a sinking feeling they were trying to start the process of decreasing Seasonal Portals 5* Event pull rate. To add, they also decreased the HotM rate in PC awhile back as well - that is 1% also. That was a really frustrating move as well. I know this is not what anyone wants to hear, but I figured I’d at least privide the comparison.
