There are some toons in this game, that quite frankly, are too weak to be worth the amount spent. No one in their right mind would spend for these following characters over people like Erika, Alpha, Hershel, Maggie, etc. I recommend that they be added to the ascendance pool, become a war prize, or are in a future nugget event.
If they really want to keep the nugget events up, these should really be offered as the ascendable recruits. They won’t compete with P2W 6*s, but will at least give the free to play people a reason to stay around.
