The way this game is paced is honestly so screwed up lol. Like, you can get a 1, 2, 3, or 4 star hero very easily, but a 5 star hero? 5 star heroes are the most ellusive things in the game, which isn't a bad thing; however, I think that they are too ellusive. I've had a 4 star hero forever, I got my Wight when I was what..? Level 48-ish? I'm level 68 now, and am still not even close to getting a 5 star hero. I'm a tenth of the way to getting my Captivator, but it's going to take a very long time until I actually get her.
Personally, I think that they should do one of two things: make 5 star hero shards in the tournament mall cheaper, or make it so you can get more of them at a time. 2 chards is way too little, especially for 4k credits. It takes me a few days to save up 4k credits, so I need to wait half a week so I can get just two shards for her. Which is insane. If you're going to make me save up for days so I can get some shards for her, make it worth while. Give me 4 shards instead. 1k per shard sounds reasonable enough. But, IGG doesn't even play their own fucking game, so I wouldn't expect them to understand my struggle.
