Just a question… but are those of us without 10-star heroes supposed to do as regards the Heronium Store? Look at the Heronium store every day wondering how good it would be to have access to the items?
Just some background… My closest heroes to 10-stars are my Mandrake and Dogface, 9 stars now but approximately 800 frags to go each before reaching 10 stars. My Fortress just reached 8 stars, so around 1600 frags to 10-stars.
For my Mandrake and Dogface, it will take - maybe 2-3 weeks if I am lucky… but for those whose best heroes are 7-star, 6-star or lower, it will take many weeks if months to get any to 10-stars. It will be very discouraging to know that the store exists only for the “elite” (more on that later) and the things that are gated behind Heronium are not accessible to me/us.
Before the July patch, a player who had only 1 10-star could only get frags of that element… If he/she wanted to get a 10-star hero of another element he/she had to do it the hard way, like me, farming fragments of the specific hero of that different element to get that 10-star status.
Now it is different. A player with only 1 10-star can accelerate his acquisition to get a 10-star from another class. With the July update, I’m being punished now for playing the “right way” by buying both Fortress and Mandrake fragments from the PVP store to make a balanced team instead of just buying one, which would have made my progress undoubtedly faster.
I have played so many PVP matches (and grinded so many quick win tickets, lol) but actually I should have been lazier and only bought Mandrake and gotten him to 10 (which I would have done, maybe 2-3 weeks ago).
I like the idea of balancing between the 10-star players, but for those who are new, midway or even close but not yet to 10-star status, the Heronium Store feels like lousy way of saying that we cannot have nice things because we weren’t in the game early enough (my account is 75+ days and I have played this game ALOT to get where I am now) or that our way of playing in a balanced way didn’t work out good for us. It is the second point that feels bad.
It just feels like the effort was not worth it because the line was drawn just beyond me, while now, my friend(s) who have generally weaker teams than me (but happen to have one 10-star hero), will climb right over easily. I don’t feel this is fair and I don’t like it that the non-10-star players like me weren’t considered in the decision making.
I wonder if the devs have any comments.
I also wonder how other players who are far away, or not really close to unlocking Heronium, feel.
