been gone for ~6 months, what's new?

went on hiatus with baby eminent and moving around early august. Felt like the game was dying a slow and agonizing death with continuously recycled events and some pretty blatant cash grabs, the removal of hero unlocks from portal (in favor of calendar events), and terrible weekly crown tournament that allowed 1 person to f it up for everyone else.

has the game been on an improvement path? Are the dailies / weekly crown “fixed”? is there hero sorting yet? Teams?

life is a bit more back on schedule, and considering reinstalling this, but thought it better to ask about what’s been going on with the game.. 😊

    I would say the game got worse. The blatant cash grabs are now necessary if you want to participate in some events. For others, you cannot earn anything meaningful without paying. Nothing is grind-able anymore. And if you thought the calendar events were bad before, they got worse. No tokens using copper and silver keys. Extra hidden doors after unlocking the 14 x 2. Oh, and of course, bugs galore.

    The crown tournament actually got better. Now you can make up for missing teammates' crowns. You can also buy extra crowns.
  • @oredith Hoo boy where to begin. I'll keep it as brief as possible.

    But also, glad to see you back! IB is still around.

    As a disclaimer, there are now TWO former EA employees who have joined both Big Fish and Boss Fight during Summer - Fall 2018 in VERY highly ranking positions, one of them becoming CEO basically. They basically run things now, which is why everything is Pay to Win. Surely not what you wanted to hear, but its just how it is.

    Things we've lost / things that have deteriorated
    Quick loot keys can only be bought with $$ or from shared heroes. Gems for loot keys is no more because it was too much value for us.
    19.99$ Daily gem offer is gone forever
    Heroic portal events (25x tokens for select hero, or 5x guaranteed full unlocks) are gone forever because they don't earn the devs money.
    You no longer can earn higher than 2 (Very rarely 3) Stars for any new hero via. F2P methods.
    Some skins are considered "ultimate" skins and give the character free passive upgrades
    Lumberjansuke or however you spell it is freeze immune and will 100% parry the first attack
    Slasher Drakk straight up gets a 2x damage multiplier in addition to his pre-existing multiplier at low hp
    Lily starts in Oak Form, same as Agnon Graniteform but she sometimes just goes back into that form after her turn)
    Loot passes are a thing.


    Gameplay related
    Jin IS the meta. If you don't have him, you're basically not PvP competitive anymore.
    His epic gives him and honorbound allies 50% DR, and all others 25% DR.
    Epic weapons only are made for the most OP new released hero.
    Zola, the new hero, can only be ascended when she has enough stars (First ascension 2 Stars, Second 4 Stars) <-- was at first 3 stars, and 5 stars respectively)
    Shieldpiercing runes let heroes basic attack through aegis shield, invincibility, and Unbreakable Heart Runes (Same as icebloom's passive, survive a fatal hit at 1hp)
  • Feedback does not bode well for the game.

    EA exec is certainly bad news. They have basically ruined a solid gold IP of Star Wars. Didn't know anyone could do that, much less repeatedly.

    What else are people playing now? I really liked db because it was "casual friendly" in the sense that I could play, or put it down, and pick it back up and feel no progress lost (once upon a time). Seems like the pay to play model is in full swing now.

  • Looney Tunes World of Mayhem has been gaining some decent traction with the exDB community. Very similar game play, would recommend checking it out.

    Marvel strike force, many PA and LC players there
  • Wow, been reading more of the other current threads... How did things go so wrong? The money grab seems so much worse than before.

    I lol'd at the 1 star unlock of Zola and the event communication. Unreal.

    So, no hero sorting yet?

    Hero sorting is really hero filtering, e.g. based on element (there's a few other options). You can't sort based on most used heroes.
  • The game is still dying, but now BF put it on life support which gets more expensive each week. Four epics were released this month, all of them unavailable unless you paid for "early access". They are supposed to appear on boss island, but I wonder when. Maybe Viperia and Cobressa epics will get there soon(tm), as they are worthless, but they'll milk Jin Lei and Zola epics for sure before releasing them for the public. No more calendar events that could get you new hero to 4 stars without paying.
