I’m not trying to argue here, all I’m saying is that the basis of brawls are not for rewards, it’s to pass some time between the events and also to try some new things out they may want to implement (like the last brawl). When they do events like that they also have a crate specific for that hero. For that yanlong event, they had a crate available were you could obtain him(like I stated above) and they have had other multiple crates that have included him too. I never disputed that it wasn’t geared toward veteran players, actually I think it pretty much is. But i feel like this game needs events like these to keep these long term players active. Again, it’s not like it’s an Artemis required event, where even if you played for the past 3 months you would have to have been lucky enough to roll her. People who placed in February tournaments would have him at at least 4 stars, and if they pulled him from one of the 5-6 special chests we have had since then it could be a lot more, AND you can farm 9 shards a day.
I think alienate is not the right word for this situation though. It would be alienating if there were blocking out a group of players while the other group gets something new, but like we have both stated, the rewards mean no one is being overly benefited by playing that brawl and even during the event, someone who just joined had the opportunity to try and get in. This game is very inclusive with its player base with so many opportunities for players to obtain heroes and grind shards for them. Honest question, when Fischer was first introduced in the pvp events, only like 30 people where able to obtain him from that first event. Is that unfair because not everyone was able to get him after it? I mean only 30 players were able to get him before anyone else! That sounds like alienating a lot of people from the game. Should they just do away with that and have everyone who plays a pvp game during the event earn him at the end?
Bottom line, I can see your fustration about not being able to participate in an event because not everyone can meet the requirements. From my take, regardless if i meet the requirements or not, I think in order for this game to continue to hold the interest of players there needs to be more challenging and specific events even though not everyone might be able to do them.
