I’ve been saving Gold for months hoping that HHG would sell one of the heroes I still need (Artemis, Prophet).
When they announced a new 7* Mech Hero I figured they would have to offer him for gold at some point and I would finally see a reason to spend the 10,000 gold I had saved. If I couldn’t get Artemis or Prophet, at least I might get Brogan right?
Well the Brogan crate is finally out. Let’s take a look at the drop rates:
Each of the crates past tier 2 offers a whopping ~25 Brogan fragments on average - for a hero that takes 585 fragments to unlock, it’s an absolute joke. Even if you got crazy luck and got the 0.1% chance of 100 frags in each tier, you still wouldn’t have the frags to unlock him!
So that leave’s the “Hero Drop” itself as the only way to actually get Brogan. The first 3 crates have a 0.2%, 0.4% and 0.6% chance for him to drop, the later crates have a 1% chance. I did the math and even if you unlock ALL EIGHT TIERS, at a cost of 13,769 Gold ($250 USD) - you still have only a 5.09% chance of getting Brogan!
That means about only 1 OUT OF 20 people who buy all 8 tiers will actually get Brogan, meaning that HHG designed this crate so that it would only reward 1 Brogan for every 275,000 Gold that gets spent - in USD (at the $100 = 5,600 Gold price) that means HHG is trying to milk its players for $4,900 dollars for each Brogan drop.
This is the last straw for me. I will not continue to give my money to a company that acts with such blatant greed.
