Bucket Analysis

Your concern is totally understandable and I agree with you full-heartedly, this should NOT be the new norm and I think it would be detrimental to the game if it were.

With that being said, I don’t think it will be. I’m not sure about your account’s age, but this is not the first time they’ve introduced a hero that was solely obtainable through cash-money.
As I reminded everyone in the original post, Galante could only be gotten through cash when he was first introduced and that was a whooping 11 months ago in the March 2018 Update.

  • Scenario 1: New hero only obtainable by cash for every single update…
  • Scenario 2: New hero only obtainable by cash 1 update out of the year…

I think Scenario 2 is more like the trend thats happening here, and is understandable from a business POV, but also somewhat frustrating from a consumer’s POV.
However, Scenario 2 is certainly a lot more tolerable than Scenario 1 would be.
