Our next update is very big and exciting in many ways! In addition to the PvP Overhaul, we’re improving the overall balance in the game. Here’s some important changes coming to the Heroes and how you obtain them after the 0.8 update.
The first important change is that the majority of our Heroes will have their starting Star Rating adjusted and reduced. This change will only affect new Heroes you obtain and will not affect your current Heroes.
Prophet 9★ -> 6★
Odachi 8★ - > 5★
Heckler 7★ -> 5★
Steele 7★ -> 3★
Pris 3★ - > 2★
Keel 1★ -> 2★
The primary reason for this change is to reduce the barrier to entry of Heroes and create a more balanced gameplay experience for everyone. This change creates a consistent, valid grind path towards a competitive experience for all players.
Hero Crates will also see a change and will no longer provide Elemental Fragments when earning a duplicate Hero. We have been closely monitoring our data and discovered that this wasn’t an effective method of earning these fragments. Earning fragments through duplicates did not provide our players with enough notable advantages to improve their team. Don’t worry, these fragments won’t be leaving the game entirely! These valuable items will make for very attractive event rewards that every Hunter can earn.
Not everything is getting reduced, however. Gold will be receiving an increase! After the next update, you’ll notice that Gold Packages in the store will be giving out more Gold!
Stack of Gold: 400 -> 450
Briefcase of Gold: 850 -> 1,000
Chest of Gold: 2,200 -> 2,600
Crate of Gold: 4,600 -> 5,600
These changes will make the experience in Hero Hunters more fair and fun for everyone.
