Hero Release Date Timeline

I've been playing this game for roughly a year, and every once in a while I see posts remeniscing about how PVP and old heroes used to be. Would anyone that has played longer than me like to provide a link to or a rough timeline of hero releases since the beginning? Could include which ones were initially released, dates for each later hero, things like that?

    That sounds like a lot of work. Good luck with that.

    I wonder if we have any historians because this would take a bit of effort to figure out all today
  • Maybe Foozle has a spreadsheet. (Didn't tag Foozle because I wouldn't want them to feel like they needed to do even more work!)

    Cruel King Bramble: Summer 2015
    Masuta Kira: August 2015
    Julius/Dhaegon: Upon international release and addition of VIP portal August 2015
    Balog: September 2015
    Zomm: Week of Halloween 2015
    Indigo: Replaced Julius in VIP portal, Julius added to general roster: November 2015
    Pignius Maximus: November 2015 (Later end)
    Augustus: Early December 2015
    Icebloom: Week of Christmas 2015
    Icepick: January 2016 (50th hero)
    Malice: Replaced Indigo in VIP portal January/February 2016
    Leonidus: Added with Challenge mode: February 2016
    The Furnace: First new legendary hero: March 2016 (First notice of power slip)
    Hansuke Undying: Accompanied another release of Zomm: spring 2016
    Kai Makani: Released during Pax east 2016. Poster also hinted at Aria. (First major note of a broken hero.)
    Daeris: Dawn of guild games.
    Aria/Ember: Added with Aether shop (Known as portalgate to some. Note that at the time events were dishing out at maximum 25 tokens per new hero.)
    Cobressa/Viperia: Added in wake of Aether shop to major backlash. Viperia replaced Malice in VIP portal.
    Zen: Released in this period to once again major backlash.
    Shieldmaiden Astrid: In quick succession after the portal changes we had so many heroes released. This was the last one to receive heavy backlash.
    Kozar: Released to VIP shop with first rune war. Rune war received positive acclaim and Kozar was therefor accepted better than previous heroes even though at the time Astrid was the best. Runes added to the game but not yet exploited.
    Hagrim Felhorn: Released during rune war. At this time people were grappling for dwarf synergy so he was well received.
    High King Valkin: Released not long after to relatively positive acclaim. Not as higha s Hagrim however. Dwarf team lacking.
    General Krexx: Released alongside Gorgons again. Runes beginning to cause issues in PVP.
    Shade: Added to counteract the overuse of status conditions. Gamebreaker.
    Grog-Gnog: Praised but also called broken.
    Bauble: Did not help with gamebreaking.
    Koros: meant to counteract shade... Put on team with shade.
    Lily Blossom: I dunno what she does yet. We'll see how she shakes things up.

    As you can tell I kind of stopped keeping track after the portals were changed. So many heroes were released so quickly I just moved on.

    Want me to go back before beta was wiped.

    October 2014: Haxus appears in dungeon boss. He never joined. He was always there, the game was just built around him.
    January 2015: King Blegherblerblerhurrnerf added to game. People would run teams with four of him on it. Also first and only event before beta wipe.
    Alexandros: Spring 2015 (Added as day 100 reward for players. Also was a lady.
    Lady Nim clones added to the game: Spring 2015
    Multiple new hero designs released around this time for preparation of beta wipe. Weird characters you only ever saw other players unlocking. Like hey, I want an angel hero! (BTW I wanted an Archangel Emily since beta an she was literally the last original hero I unlocked. Not even joking.)
    And finally... Sniff... Finally... The Beta Wipe...
