Okay, I get why glory troops have 4 weeks where they aren’t in chests. You can get them pretty easily just by spending glory, and it encourages people to spend their glory.
The direct-to-event-chests legendaries, however, are another story. Some people don’t even get these. What’s the logic behind making these unavailable in chests for 4 weeks following release? You’re already going to have people spending their event keys trying to get it, maybe even up to mythic. Last week I spent over 200 event keys (some having to be purchased with gems) trying to get a single copy of Tesla. With another event key exclusive and virtually no event keys saved up, it’s going to be a nightmare to obtain Sekhma. To add insult to injury, those of us who don’t obtain one have to wait 4 weeks for a chance at one. Why?
I think the straight to event chests troops should be immediately put into chests the following week. I see no reason why there needs to be a waiting period.
