I really feel that Scopely have completely missed the mark with this new choose your side event.
The previous choose your side event featured the excellent Dwight who would kill or cripple 1 enemy, and the revive Jesus.
This time though, we get yet another heavy hitting blue and a mediocre green who fits into no ones team.
The abundance of Lydia teams means that F2P need better greens and they simply do not exist. The best available is Abe, who is only there for his lead skill, and Shiva who is very dated now days. Neither can kill a Lydia without huge buffs or enemy debuffs.
The only F2P decap green is Alpha and you had to be lucky to get her and even then, she still requires a huge buff to be effective.
What should have happened:
I think we can all agree that we do not need more revives. We’ve had a free green, blue and red revive in recent weeks.
A disarm would have been nice also. Michonne is obtainable F2P, with a large amount of luck, but she isn’t amazing vs Lydias. I still see this as a P2P specialist skill so i don’t think we can realistically expect one of these to be given out.
A heavy hitting green, ideally with decap, would have been an amazing choice here.
But lets not look past the main issue with these toons. Their stats!
These are Generation 1 6*s and we are entering the Generation 2 era right now. Their stats fall well behind the recent releases so they’ll be completely redundant within a few weeks.
P2P will have no use for these toons, except as ascendance fodder.
F2P should go for Maggie because she is the better choice but would she be used in place of Ty/Dwight/Laura/Spencer/Other Dwight/Tara/Andrea? Doubtful.
John is a joke of a toon.
Its sad because neither of these toons will have the same effect as Dwight or Jesus did previously. Just more evidence that Scopely is out of touch with the player base.
