Between this and the arbitrary reason of having new players have the ‘enjoyment of getting a 5 star’, I wonder whether decisions made were driven more by profit or ‘enjoyment’
Also worth noting is that while there are many 5 stars heroes for new players to unlock, there is at most only 1, if not 2 event heroes that affects the meta for that whole month (including bounty). Most players playing this game for the first time would have known that many other 5 stars are not even that hard to unlock, you get the odachi offer for 750 gold which is popular amongst new players. And in case you decide to leave for vacation, you get a FREE 5 star heckler/ heimlock as your 2nd welcome back reward. Just to give a few examples…
The Brogan lesson was a painful one, hate to see that our complains just months back were so quickly forgotten. After all, actions speak louder than words.
