I actually have a decent team for a new-ish/free only player. My top team is 4052 and I have 13 5** heros. My current top 6 teams have all 4** players…except blue. I have been very unlucky on the pull for blue. I recently pulled Sonia, and Boril - Greymane was a place holder on team 6, and knowing I was likely soon to replace him, I built him up a tiny bit and that was it.
For purple I was stuck because Rigard and Tiburtus seem like decently performing 4** purples…but Quintas and Obakan are 5*** so I was at a loss for which was the better move.
For red, Colen was holding 6th team position and I had barely touched him because I pulled Marjana so I was putting all of my red efforts into building her up to a Team 1 or 2 hero. She’s maxed now, so I have time to work elsewhere. Then I pulled Sumitomo…so was trying to decide if Sumi makes the 6th team spot, or Colen.
I currently only carry 5 3* players, and the only reason I do is to play in the raid tournaments when they call for a 3** team. They are all “A” performers and maxed so they just wait patiently on a 7th team for the most part for a chance at the tournament. (except my darned Greymane problem!..Ahhhh Blue!)
Thanks again for your help everyone - your help is very valuable.
