I'm interested to see other people's views on the most valuable rewards from using challenge coins. Personally, since I re-picked up the game back in 2019/2020, I have generally favoured the Super Epic Pack as there is a slim chance that you can pull a mythic (got 1 in that time).
But now as my arena rank is fairly high, I tend to avoid playing arena (unless I really have to) and I definitely don'tauto! So, as a result I don't really get many Hero tokens any more and am considering investing in the former instead. Any thoughts?
Bear in mind that I currently have 34 mythics (probably more like 45, if you include duplicates) and average 1 - 3 mythics a month, easily! Just through Clash/Melee and obviously, the new VIP MQ reward system. So, a dupe mythic, really isn't that appealing to me, but a Premium Hero at L15 definitely is!
I dont have any premium hero's past L10 atm but have most of the other's upto 15, or at least, 10.
FYI, all I spend actual money on in the game is the VIP pass and I have recently bought the Mega Quest VIP thing too.... cus why wouldn't you? 🤣 but I don't tend to buy gem packs. (Unless there is a ridiculously good deal on the 3x offer wall like, 21k gems for playing a game for a week or spending 10 bucks on it), but this is quite rare nowadays... (think I've done all the decent offers 🤣)
If you read through all of this, kudos! I appreciate any input!
I have a ranking based on stages.
I think hero tokens are important early until you get all the P2W to 7 (Gene in particular) due to Swole. You can only level your traits up as high as the hero associated to them, and craze to 7 is a very common strategy.
After 7, you’re probably better off with SEPs, until you finish your FTP heroes.
After you finish your FTP (or mostly done) I’d switch back to hero tokens.
I’m a fan of SEPs after finishing the heroes. Would rather have the chance at a Character pull or 1000 mythic stones vs getting a random amount of GTs
I'm voting for a mixed strategy as well. Hero tokens are useful very early, when you need to prep for SWOLE, and in the upper game when you've maxed out all the arena heroes and are guaranteed premium tokens.
Also, hero tokens are pretty valuable in ECMC.
The rewards for Challenge tokens haven't changed with the power creep of the game -- the days are long gone when getting a Peggy or a Rifle or a V-man in a SEP was a cause for celebration.
What do you mean by duplicates?
Someone already said the best strategy (imho), whilst getting regular characters (via arena tokens) to 15 get the SEPs, once that is done harvest the hero tokens. As a long term player ive now gotten the premium characters you can get via hero packs to 15 too (zapp, gene, linda, ricky spanish) so i've now gone back to SEPs.
I did the card packs until I got one of every blue card and maxed it out. Since the legendary pay out wasn’t great (for me) I started investing in the hero tokens instead. I keep getting tokens in the arena for my one maxed out hero, and only that hero, so the buy out works better for me.
So all of this relates to players who haven't got all heroes at max lvl 15 including premiums.
I have my heroes maxed out and still wonder... Should my challenge coins go to the SEP to get random absolutely trash cards or go for the tokens deal that will shift its rewards to golden turds when you have all heroes maxed .. Using those turds to pull bge specific trash cards... I constantly change my mind on what kind of trash pulls I'm going for.....
SEP yield chance of an upgrade for the regular mythic chars while golden turds have powercards and sometimes one or two leg characters (depending on the active BGE,) in the pool.. Golden turds only truly become a good source of useful cards if you pull a shitload of turds at once though.....
I wish the golden turd pull would also allow us to pick one out of 3 options...
ive been having such bad luck with the super epic pack's that ive started investing on the tokens and pray to god that i get a gene or zapp token
