  • CP and GCP pack madness

    Why must that be so complex, just bring out a new hero and sell it for a fixed amount of gems. easy, is it not? well in the past we called that new released hero pack
    seriously what is this madness now. Do I have to be a master mathematician, keep as spreadsheet of what I can exspect before, just to get a new hero.

    having a full catalogue, do you honestly thing that I first want 10, one star dupes before getting a new released hero.
    since there are so many question about this topic on the forum something must be wrong, with a mechanic that is unnecessary complex.

    well here is my screen shot let me know when I get the new hero guarantee

    Well, I had the same issue yesterday, I was 2 GCP from 2/3 guarantee , 1st, nothing new, 2nd got 1 HV. I was only missing him and another not fetured this week.

    There is s chance u might get him on next buy if u have all blighted and of course dupe on other to get higher odds (I think)...it S*** tushy

      I would say that you would get the new hero on the first pack. The no dupe means you get the three-star from that pull not a two star since it can pull a 2 or 3 star and the only one you don't have it the 3-star new hero.
      That is my thought let me know what happens

        No. The pack mechanics have changed, and it now separates between 2* & 3* for no-dupe, so a chance on the first pack and a guarantee on the second pack (if it wasn't received on the first).

          At worst, you would require 2 packs to get the hero, by triggering the 3* guarantee. With a little bit of luck, you could get it on the first pack if you roll a 3* as part of the 2*/3* Guarantee.

            I do not like the new pack mechanics it is insane that with a full catalog I may have to buy up to 6 packs to get the new champion. This reminds me of how it was when the game first started. I like a lot of the changes that have been made to the game but I am feeling it is time for me to retire all my accounts and move on. I had the 2-3 star guarantee going and got Felix so that means I have to buy 6 more packs for the guarantees so a total of 7 packs for this hero so potentially 1855 gems for one hero I think that is a bit too much to ask for

              he would have to buy 3, not 2, the first one to trigger the 2/3 guarantee and if it does not drop, he has to buy 2 more to trigger the 3* guarantee

                That’s wrong, the screenshot clearly says 3-stars hero in 2 packs

                  You may also wait and get him in a “black faction pack” or “pack-a-palooza” for less than a GCP cost, like I’m doing. If you want to get him the first day, it has a higher cost

                    His screenshot says 2, he would get it in 2.

                      sry, my bad, i dont know why but i thought that its on pair...i mean, in my case i had 2 until 2/3 and 4 until 3, now mine says 2 until 2/3 and 3 (4 for gear). just a little confusion jeje

                      on that note, if i buy 2 GCP, triggering 2*/3* and 3* guarantee, how at my chances (low, med, high) to get a dupe HV (since its the only non dupe blight i have)

                        The two guarantees work independently of each other, as they always have. Tap on your store icon in game to see when the guarantees will trigger. With the 3* guarantee coming every 6 packs, you will never have to go 7 packs to trigger it. It would only ever be 6 packs. You absolutely can trigger both guarantees in the same pack, as well.

                        Additionally, the guarantees don't reset if you happen to pull a 2* or 3* hero outside of the guarantee.

                        Check the guarantees again. Remember, 2*/3* Guarantee is now every 2nd pack, and 3* Guarantee is every 6th. You may be remembering the old guarantees.

                        When the game first started there was no concept of guarantees, and even when guarantees were introduced, it still took a while before no-dupe came into play. You could easily go thousands of gems or hundreds of dollars without getting the new hero, even if you had everything else.

                        There wasn't even a guarantee to get anything other than Rares in the GCP when the game first started, plus they cost more, and gems were significantly harder to come by.

                        This current mechanism strikes a balance between healthy for the game and affordable for players, between all the things you get in the pack and all the gems that can be earned in game. There is now a direct 3* guarantee that didn't exist before, making it easier to acquire duplicates of 3* heroes once you have the whole catalog. You are now guaranteed at least a 2* hero every other pack, even if your catalog is full, where before you could keep getting only dupe 1* for many packs while chasing duplicate 2 or 3* heroes. We've cut back on the wisps provided and increased the number of guaranteed legendaries per pack. We've reduced the pack contents to just a featured group so you know what to expect very clearly, and can use each featured group to chase desirables, or to pass entirely if the group doesn't appeal to you without feeling like you're missing out on a chance for something not in that group.

                        Putting not a lot of effort into PVP and Proving Grounds events will yield a very tidy sum of gems on a regular basis. With the reduced number of heroes being released, you have several weeks to save up if all you want to do is buy a new hero when it is released.

                        I assure you, having been around since the game launched and having been a player long before becoming staff, this is far and away light years better than when the game first started.

                          If you've already got one, chances are pretty high on the 3* guarantee to receive a second, since there's only 2 non-LC 3* Blighted, and the LCs won't duplicate.

                          Low chance on getting 2 in the same pack though, since you are more likely to receive a 2* than 3* on that guarantee. But it could still happen.

                            I understand and accept most of what is going on with the packs however, for me it is not a good situation. Apart from latest hero I have them all and I do not use dupes. To get a 3* hero I need to buy 6 packs and it is a lot of gems. I know I will get dupe hero which I do not need and wisps which I do need and not all will be Legendary or Mythic, along the way but still, I prefer to buy the NRP. When purchasing NRP I knew that I will get a new hero with a new gear.

                            My luck is not good for getting new and/or desired hero. If a new 2* hero will be relist and if I will purchase the guaranteed 2*/3*, with my luck I will probably roll a 3* dupe which I do not need.

                            Now that the 2* and 3* are separated, I would like to propose to add a 2* guaranteed to the same pack of the 2*/3* guaranteed pack and, reduce the number of guaranteed 3* to 3 or 4 packs. As for NRP, I would not mind paying a little more, 300+ or 400 gems, to buy them.

                            But for now, I will wait for the Flash Packs to get the not so new heroes with a very small chance to get the latest new gear. This is a disappointment for me but I will have to accept it for now.

                              I agree with this. I hate this new pack design, especially in regards to new heros. 780 Gems spent on dupes and no new hero. FML

                              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:
