That’s great! Not everyone did. Personally, I don’t always use Benedicts as fodder, they’re far too valuable for leveling other toons when my roster’s overflowing with 5*s that will never get the gear to upgrade them. The gear is far too valuable to use for a 5* - get 'em to T3MAX and fodder.
There’s a theory in gaming that a player shouldn’t need a crystal ball to play the game. Example of bad game design: 10 minutes into a game, a player has to choose from one of three items, a key, a weapon or a piece of armor. After sinking hundreds of hours into the game, the player finds out they had to somehow know the key was going to be required in order to win. That’s just stupid design. Similarly, it would be extraordinarily bad design at this point for Scopely to go: HAHA, forget all that focus we put on 6* characters for the past 16 months, you have to use 5* to win this next tourney.
