    Element: dark... bonus against darks! He’s a cannibal! 🤪😱... even the forum posts have free bugs. So generous I like just can’t event... u2bxckgws12z.jpeg
  • At least if he was actually dark, shade could protect him. As is, looks like he will just be frozen, silenced, and/or killed before ever getting a turn.

    Should probably be "will revenge" as it is now guaranteed (aside from dodge and Leo... )

    So, what other games are people fleeing this to, seeing as Diablo is too far out?

    Let’s start a family fued line channel. Sounds like more fun with less bugs and mistakes they won’t refund us for.

    This is the only passive unique to the legendary? Doesn't seem like that's enough to bring electric or honorbound into the meta. Guess we'll see.
  • Oh, boy, here we go again.

    @bvs72 , maaaaayyyyybe.
    Serve and be happy, citizen. The Computer is your friend!

    How many stars is this hero unlock? 1 star (he's a ten token legendary?) 3 star (100 token unlock)?

    Update: Nevermind, I see him in my hero list. 10 token unlock.

    What does the Storm Power actually do, other than stack and get consumed.
  • Relentless with the money offers. Bunch of ****.

    Btw, insert obligatory Mists of Pandaria reference here.

    Really bums me out all the new heroes that have been coming out are basically locked behind pay-walls... Either calenders or straight-up pay-to-obtain purchases. We can't even have new heroes put in the portal anymore?

    You know what you could do, make another portal that also costs 300 gems (or 2,700 for 10 summons) and just dump the rest of the heroes in there. Like banners on Gacha games. Have the Heroic portal split into 2 or more segments you can choose from. It'll let you put more heroes in the Heroic Portal while actually making it EASIER to get the hero you want.
  • Noice, would love to have him early but I’m broke lmao
  • Well, I got 5 free tokens today for him, so that's kinda funny.

    But yeah, VIP rewards have been continuously diminishing into nothingness.

    VIP10s used to get the hero early for free, now they have to buy them. Before that, we used to have a VIP Portal exclusive heroes. Remember those? Giving people rewards for loyalty/accumulated spending isn't as profitable as enticing a few people (emphasis on few) to pay even more for them, I guess.

    It could be worse, I guess. At least he isn't stepping on Aria's toes as much as my initial impression of his design made me think. Maybe one day they'll buff her up to be a true Legendary hero? But now that people have a massive stockpile of Aether, I don't think they care anymore.
  • Anyone else remember when they promised that the only things locked behind loot passes were going to be cosmetic skins?

    Lol EA. The unholy force that is slowly ruining the gaming industry, from false promises for games on consoles to making literally everything PTP.

    Mark my words, this is a strategy from the higher ups to slowly make us care less about the game / leave, then they're going to announce the sudden shutdown of DB, hoping to just shrink away back to casino games with the money made from whomever is actually purchasing these lame sell out tactics.

    Also, I don't know what program these character models and attacks are made in, but as a student studying 3D Modeling and game development, it blows my mind to see the price points set by the DB higher ups.

    It actually hurts me on the inside.
  • Well, yeah, nah. Really!?!? $31aus, pass!

    *shakeshead*

    From what?

  • So is the new pattern for new heroes 2-3 a month?

    Marvel Strike Force.

    it is also [famously] a shameless cash grab, with a recent mass exodus of several apparently hi-profile Twitchers and Tubers due to their microtransaction practices.

    HOWEVER:
    1) hero sorting/filtering.
    2) saved teams usable anywhere in the game.
    3) the joy of using characters I already know instead of invented Lego bobble-head heroes grunting in Asian accents. (not that I have anything against Asian accents, I've just never figured out why ALL DB heroes sound Asian, even clearly non-asian ones).

    also, I've never laughed out loud so often at a game. if you know the Marvel universe at all, some of the situations and conversations are just gold.

    so it's still a grind, and still a shameless cash grab, as all FTP Mobile games seem to be. but I love it. more than DB. especially for (1) and (2) above.... IMO those are just basic functionality for a game like this, not having them in DB has always been an intolerable headache.

    oh yeah, and did I mention.... DEADPOOL?!?
