I don’t really see an issue with it right now, especially as the level cap continues to be increased. It’s going to take more and more xp per level and when you have 45-50 heroes to level having a bunch stocked up isn’t to bad. From my perspective, I have all my heroes at the highest level right now so I am stockpiling but I was even doing this when the cap was 55, I still didn’t have enough to get everyone I had to level 60, can’t imaging what it’s going to be like for people at 50 right now trying to get to 65 In the next patch.
I don’t mind getting them in gold crates cause you know, it’s literally free stuff. As far as pvp crates, I’m okay with getting them every now and then, 5 wins is not a lot when you have a bunch of heroes and and it’s a trade off for other items you can get in the crates. Plus the drop rate for each crate is pretty low. Gold crate is meant to help you level up your heroes, best way to do that is through xp so naturally that’s going to be one of the more prominent items you can get. Pvp crate is less with a combined 17% which is just a little bit higher then getting gold. At least at level 60 the worst you can get is 20 silver xp at a 11%chance.
What I wouldn’t mind is a trade in system for green, bronze, and silver xp to consolidate them into the higher tiered ones. Past level 30 it gets tedious to use green xp and after 55 it’s about 40-50 bronze for the next level. If we could trade in a lower teir for the higher tier ones with a little fee involved I think it would work out great.
