Ok this is getting to be stupid.. we had special missions which has been posted several times that everyone hates. Then glory, now back to special missions? 

 

Herocon started off as a new idea that got teams working together to help each other and the team earn points and get a team bonus... now its become the thing everyone groans about.. you cant blame teammates for not getting points in special missions as many are stuck on levels that are nearly impossible until they gain several levels. 

 

Why are we getting the same ones over and over? I know the rotation got messed up when the whole bot thing came up and cheaters brought it to a grinding halt... (which i still say was handled poorly by HZ there should have been no Herocon rather than changed midweek) But we are several weeks past that and we should have cleared the rotation by now. 

 

It looks like the two Herocons that make people spend the most donuts are Special Missions and Glory we dont see the ones that donuts dont help that often (AKA SPEND COINS) because you cant buy coins with donuts. I urge everyone to not spend a single donut on Herocon this week to force their hand and make them stop with the special mission Herocon... And Levelhunter I would love to hear why we are stuck on 2 Herocons rather than a large rotation as it started out if there is a reason other than to make people spend donuts.

I never spend donuts on herocon

I do agree they should fix the rotation because there are a lot of cons we havent been using yet

Might as well just make a 2nd hero con.. If we will keep on getting special missions every week they can just make a 2nd hero con for something more fun..

I agree the rotation is messed up but I don't think it has anything to do with donuts.  What would you even spend donuts on for special missions?  Same with glory.. not worth it to use donuts.   

They definitely need to switch it up though.... people are getting discouraged.

since that type of hair is not part of the "appearance" , and both headgear and glasses are part of "mask", I would say is "one"

Can a male wear that too ? I want to see that.. We are going off topic ?? Naw.. Who said that ? :D lol I wonder how it will look.. :P

 

to keep this in topic.. REMOVE Special missions and Glory for the next weeks. We had enough of them.. Let something else play in the hero con. It's getting boring. We need more of a variety

I don't see why a male couldn't, it's just sunglasses.. I think it might look neat lol  

 

I second that motion.. no more special mission or glory!

Our team is not even attempting this one at the moment. 

Seeing as we just went through this, the level of our team versus the level of the mobs is making it extremely tedious to be competitive. Plus, there is a serious overpowering issue. I was beaten by a mob 8 levels lower and that's just ridiculous. 

 

If we are going to keep seeing this particular herocon we need a serious balance issue addressed. Just prefer not to see it quite so often to be honest. :)

i agree with everyone above, this herocon needs to be retired. i am not even trying anymore. it's ridiculous that i am getting beaten by bad guys 6 to 7 levels below me. then to make matters worse, that bad guy then jumps to 7-8 levels above me! it's a no win situation and i give up. i won't be competing in this herocon or any future herocon that involves special missions.

Nah, HC is good.

But the tasks are killing us.

Lightly saying, it has become quite a bit of pain... How does their rendomiser work??? Are there only 2 choices now??

they allow computer to do it ( or so they say )

 

they should "generally do it"  but certain weeks "impose one"  ( like at minimum, do skill points buy every 8 weeks if not sooner done by computer )

Forget a randomized HeroCon selection. How about give us a given set of herocons for given weeks since there are not enough to really be random? At the very least perhaps we could prepare for them if everyone is on the same page and it wouldn't give an unfair advantage if we ALL know the rotation.Then, start working on new HeroCon tasks for implementation to be added in the cycle so maybe we could get a true randomized effect each week. 

 

Honestly, until some sort of balance is added to the special missions, you really could just take that nightmare out. 6 to 7 levels below beating us then jumping 6 to 7 levels higher? There is something broken in that system.

 

Oh, and here is another scenario that happened to me. 

I was level 119. Beat a level 114 boss at step 2. Clicked step 3.. boss was level 125. In what world is that justified?

You should win 10 levels above you easy, you have sidekick and missiles they don't. Level 5 and 10 are a little harder but you win after a few tries.

I agree Hero Con Special Missions needs to stop  we have seen it far to many times it was disheartening to see it come up again so quickly in the rotation I and may others are not happy
