    CG knocking it out of the park as usual. There are very few mobile game devs who dedicate so much effort to their games. Most people see mobile gaming as just pointless clickers. Sure, I wouldn't say HODA competes with the mainline DA games, but it's sure as hell a better experience than an EA branded AAA lootbox vehicle.

      I know you guys at CG have a lot of things on your plate and I know that you guys been doing a splendid job with the game but shouldnt this be a priority? This "bug" basically make it unfair for all other teams that cannot utilize key+ assassination combo. I saw people with team of 3 unbuild/ unfort Carver using 2 speed runes to fight expensive/ heavily built team in PG and just really on just luck and cheap tactics to get some quick banners at PG end time.

        We understand that but this is an engineering thing and we must wait for those resources to be available to us.

            And the Knight Packs too.

            To bear in mind though, the legendary pool for both catalogues is about 50 strong. No-dupe guarantees wouldn't apply if you've already had the Sky Horror once so it could take a VERY long time to get them this way.....

                      Happy that Abelas and Sentinel Spellbinder were revamped, but disappointed Abelas lost his slow immunity for elves. Along with his power gain on any death that was my favourite thing about him. 50% slow resist for elves isn't very effective with all the negative auras around.

                        We wanted to make Abelas more focused on the Sentinel group than on Elves in general. Sentinels thus still have 100% slow resist, but he still provides a use to general Elves as well.

                          Her power is actually high for her class, thus why she didn't get any change to her power.

                            Really? Maybe I'm not filtering by the right class or HODA codex isn't updated, but she has has the 3rd lowest max power for mages. The only ones lower are Bethany, who attacks 3 times, and Keeper Marethari. Maybe I'm not putting enough weight on her second attack on a single hero.

                              Having a second attack will decrease the power potential for a hero, as we take this into account under the current guidelines. This was unfortunately unchecked in the past, and so a hero could be created with extremely high power AND have multiple attacks (I'm looking at you, RJS) which makes it difficult to provide proper balance.

                              By "class" I don't mean "Rogue, Mage, Warrior, Support". Our guideline classes are based on several factors, including star-rating, giant or normal, number of attacks, initiative, and attack type (column/row, single, AOE). The primary attack is what we use for the attack type - the second attack will be adjusted if need be to ensure its effectiveness.

                              It would be difficult to use HoDACodex to determine the guideline class for a hero, as I don't believe they have any way of specifying the number of attacks involved.

                              Based on Merrill's stat class, the average power for her class is roughly 1161 (including self-applicable auras, without fortification). At 1800 power, she exceeds the maximum stat for her class by nearly 50%. Based on her two attacks, she has the potential to deal 11,700 damage (without fortification) in one turn (that's 43,641 with fortification, before additional auras or faction bonus damage).

                                Does that mean the Sentinel group will be getting updated in general, or have a new addition(s)? Oh, the Spirit Champion, is it considered a Sentinel?

Moderators are here to uphold and enforce these rules and the Terms of Service. Freedom to express your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and feedback, does not allow you the freedom of saying anything you want when you agree to the Terms of Service.

                                Flaming includes material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing.

                                As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will. All posts/threads will be deleted.

                                Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.


                                Right to Privacy

                                Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

                                Discussing or posting of another player's spending habits will be deleted.

                                Obvious spam (repetitive nonsense posts) will result in the poster permanently banned and all posts deleted.


                                Porn
                                Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums.

                                Warez

                                Cross-posting
                                Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.


                                Cheating
                                The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                                Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                                Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.


                                Off-Topic Posting
                                Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


                                Political Posting
                                Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.


                                Customer Support Inquiries
                                All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                                Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                                Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                                What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                                What happens if I break the rules?
                                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                                Posting Suggestions
                                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                                EA TOS English
                                EA TOS French
                                EA TOS German
                                EA TOS Russian
                                EA TOS Spanish

                                By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
