Some Heroes Will Never Have Epics.

At the rate the devs are going, a large majority or heroes will never, ever have epics. If there is a new hero every month and a new epic every what, three months, there is a problem. There are two relatively easy ways to fix this.

-There could be two epics made for every new hero, maybe on a scale of a month or two.
-Big Fish could take a break from new heroes for a couple months(2-3) and focus on outputting a ton of epics.

Once you get all the heroes there isn't much to do except get materials for runes and epics. Having more epic choices would make that late game a lot more fun and long-lasting.

Please consider these options @Joel @Joveth

    The universe is expanding faster than the speed of light, meaning there are some parts of it we will never, ever see. I call this the 'Dungeon Boss Content Release Effect'.

  • LOL. It's just losing some of the excitement of new stuff since I got all the heroes... :(

    No, you're right. Heroes being released faster than Epics can be made is a problem. In theory, even if every hero got their Epic, some heroes would still be less powerful than others because older heroes tend to be weaker. They really need to ramp up their game, release more Epics, and re-work older heroes. I'm sure the majority of the playerbase would actually prefer that over new heroes.

  • Although new heroes are still important, it's better to get some of the balance issues out of the way first.

    Also we still need a demon and elf legendary.

    True, but we could also balance things out by reworking older heroes. Making Malice a better Demon leader and making the Demons stronger. Making Valkin have more synergy with the Dwarves. Buffing "garbage" heroes like Abigail, Sifu, Takumi, etc.

    I'm fine with a steady stream of new heroes, but it should be much slower than it is now. They should be prioritizing new content and attending to the older heroes rather than new, flashy heroes who are just blatant cash-grabs.

  • Maybe they could make Malice a demon legendary and have a passive like "On crit, give allies 100% crit and all demons attack a random enemy" or "On crit, apply a random debuff to all enemies. One of these could also be her epic attack. I think Sifu could be upgraded by making him synergise as a dodge healer for the yellow rogue team of Aria, Kira, and BD. Abigail could be a barbarian with Balog and make that a race/family. I think Takumi could be upgraded if he had something like backsplash or dampen.
  • The point is they SHOULD be doing that, but they aren’t. They’re investing the least amount of dollars to keep an audience around for as long as possible. I really don’t think they’re actively developing it anymore — they’re in maintenance mode just drawing out the release of heroes and whatnot to continue to draw dollars into a game that has long since died a slow, quiet death.

    Aww... Kinda reminds me of Lionheart Tactics. It was an amazing game, but due to a huge paywall about 2/3rds of the way through, everyone quit. They never made it easier to beat the paywall levels, instead just ramping out more and more OP heroes (that you had to get in typical casino loot-box fashion). To my knowledge, the game is still playable... Stuck on it's Halloween event from over 2 years ago, never to be updated again...

    Maybe DB should take notes.

    Pretty sure DB knows how to screw up their own game without taking notes

    I don't think that is even true, considering nothing can exceed the speed of light, and if it did, for the object, time would go backwards, but that is for another day. Either way, this is still a problem. DB (correctly) thinks that new heroes can shake up the meta much more than an epic, and with a meta that has remained somewhat stagnant for such a long period of time, DB wants to move on from this meta by releasing new heroes to combat old ones, rather than some shiny new toys that will speed up pve runs and boost some stats a bit.
    Awesome Farfella guy up there was created by jackhallow666^!!!
    Also, go gorgons!

    Ah, but what is the universe expanding into? We can't say, but it's a reasonable assumption that the "space" that our universe is expanding into doesn't have the same laws of physics as ours, and so it can expand faster than light.

  • The stuff in space itself isn't moving, the space BETWEEN that stuff is expanding. And since space is nothing... it can go the speed of light. This got way off topic way fast.

    Depends on what you mean by 'universe'

    Space is defined by room to put things in, but if there's nothing to put in, then does space exist? When defines the 'space' beyond the furthermost photon? strong theory? the potential for the quantum effect where particles suddenly materialize out of nothing?

    In any event, I'd hard the expansion of the universe was slowing, and never heard it was going faster than the speed of light, so I'm skeptical.

    ...oh, epics.
    They started off to fast with epics.
    As it is now, close to half the heroes have epics.
    But yes, these past few months have seen that slow.

  • I'm gonna steer clear of the problem of "space" expanding greater than the speed of light, as opposed to material objects, stay away from quantum entanglement, and stay away from physical laws that might even render the conventional notion of "expanding" as quaint and just say this....

    From Men In Black:

    "...Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow"

    ...and...

    "Unlimited technology from the whole universe, and we cruise 'round in a Ford P.O.S. "

    I think those are pretty epic :)
