Silly to put Suncrest troop in the vault. Vault drops are rare so the only reason for this is to make sure it’s hard to max it unless you do it with a blue orb. Vault troops should be in the vault and Suncrest troops should drop with event keys during Suncrest event week. On the other hand you could give 6 copies if you buy the pass and I would say no more.
It seems to me It’s another reason not to buy the pass. If you don’t buy pass you need 6 of the troop. If you do buy it then you still need 5. Folks buying the pass do not want to jump through more hoops trying to get the troop maxed. I am only saying this because putting it in the vault makes it even harder to get current troops in vault maxed. It seems like the Devs are doing this because they think the common player is sitting on hundreds of vault keys and nothing can be further from the truth. No reason troops that are not vault troops should be available only in the vault.
The ‘reason’ is because they want people to get them first from Elite campaign rewards, rather than having a very small chance of getting them from Vault rewards at a much later date.
This was established in the first campaign with Heart of Rage. FOMO ftw.
Yeah, there are no rules regarding Vault troops’ rarities now. Particularly 505 Games not having to disclose the chances of getting any troop from there, unlike other chests.
Maybe there is a loophole for whatever reason? I dunno.
I think the drop rates that they do disclose is so if anyone asks they can be like see, we disclose our drop rates. And of course John who’s never played GoW is going to assume that means they disclose all drop rates. But those who actually play the game know that’s not the case.
Ascension orbs exists. Not saying everything’s fine as is, but if you have one copy, then one ascension orb can save you a lot of pain. If you have 0 copies, much pain. Which I think is exactly the reasoning behind putting it in the vault. It’s the “subscribe or suffer” business model.
I do not care about Vault troops because they are not linked to a kingdom progression. Blue orbs can be used as long as they stop making troops that require 8 power orbs. Otherwise all blue Orbs need to go to that.
Can you imagine when there are like 6 of these troops in the vault pool? Imagine you are lucky enough to pull 5 of them, how hard will it be to pull the 1 you DON’T have?
HoR didn’t attract enough subscription purchases because players don’t really care about vault troops as they don’t impact kingdom power… This way these troops are extremely hard to get AND they count for kingdom power. It’s all about the subs.
