Great game

The reviews on here that state you have to “pay to win” and “never guaranteed you do win when you spend x amount” are Bogus claims. Playing this game is a marathon, not a dAsh to the finish. It’s team building; material farming adventure that takes months to get every character and item your so desperately wanting. The Months it takes to lever characters, upgrade buildings, play through the story and quests takes time and patience. You can spend money to get the things your so desperately wanting now with odd/chances against you OR you can just play the game and wait for the quest and tournaments to give you the items your wanting(takes time)
What your goals in the gameplay can also differ. So any reviews telling you about bad character/teams or not getting them. Those people know they spend money with odd slim and change with every season. and spending money is no guarantee to any item due to the lottery/change type of buying. They tell you the % of chance to get certain items/
If your looking for a game you can dig into, put in the time needed to make it the team and build it have patience because they give you gem to spend, they give you many items to build you characters. Give this game the your time it deserves before giving it a review.

Would you play this game if you are bad luck?

I don’t know. We are a group of 7 people. I must spend some money sometime. However, my friends doesn’t. They are poor, so They save a lot of gems for fortune. Until now they are at level 28, they are still bad luck and didn’t get any 5 heros. Even if you have 5 stars hero. You still need to wait a long time to find the items to update your heros. My clan members just told me... He just got the last ring that he needs since almost 2 years... We lost titan, war by weird matching. I am scared. Today My friends tell me they will quit the game. They told me :” It is so expensive, nonsense, unreasonable waiting for a really good game.” Im sad. I think if they quit, I will quit too. I dont know how to play game alone without my friends. This game used to give a really great memories. Update: I think I did my review for over 5 months until you guys responded. :-/ . The game is getting better than before a lot. After a year playing the game, My group is now only have 2 left. They all give up on the game because of bad luck with summons and collecting items to max training for 5 stars heroes ( 7 members before). They got frustrated and mad then left. I was sad cause all my best friends are left. However the game already got better by adding some good quests before they left. ( still so long but better than nothing). I want to play a game for long term even without my friends. My new friends from my alliance are amazing.

Used to be a solid game

This game has progressively gotten worse and worse. I one point I would had said you can play the game and be pretty successful without paying. Anymore , however, they have dialed way back on mats so if you’re lucky enough to get five star hero’s you won’t get the mats to lvl them. I have multiple five stars that I’ve had for YEARS and can’t get enough mats to lvl them all the way up. Of coarse you can pay $30+ bucks to be able to get the mats to do 1 hero if you have the other mats to do so, spoiler, you won’t unless you neglect every other hero until you pay for your mats. Now I couldn’t always say this , they wouldn’t keep up exactly , but you could get through a few five star hero’s. If you stayed active on the game. I would reward them by buying gems to get hero’s at 30 bucks a pop, for a ten pull, and didn’t flinch, now unless you buy everything you will not be successful at this game. The tile drops have gotten to be crap too. You have a team that is solid…. Well they just won’t give you the tiles to win, so all you end up doing is charging up the other teams hero’s and get frustrated as you see them pick one hero off after another. One week your entire alliance does well (in wars) with descent boards, the next nothing but poo. They claim it’s random drops I STRONGLY disagree. This game has done nothing but become a money pit and a frustration. Always figured games were to be fun and relaxing this one breaks that mold 10 fold.
