you couldnt be more wrong.
Ok I'm happy to be wrong but can you please explain how I'm wrong - I thought we all saw the same thing in this vid? He didn't get get a Hero automatically summoned but he got enough to do it manually, right?
Well if you read back on previous pages then it should become clear, however I shall try to explain it again.
CS is garbage because on average you spend 12.000 diamonds to get the hero. If youre lucky you have some extra SS of said hero (useless but extra) You will have some cheeses, and some SS from 2 heroes which are prolly also obtainable for "free".
By the time you can use the CS you're atleast vip5 so thats not really f2p. Most people are vip 10 because that was the previous requirement. So that is even further away from f2p.
Instead of dropping 12k diamonds on to get 1 hero card and a few SS for roughly $100 it is way way way way way better to wait untill the hero appears in the DP event and then spent 100 bucks.
You will end up with a 4 star hero who is 140/150 to level 5 and you will have 160 SS from another hero (hopefully a decent one) and depending on the DP event you might also end up with extra goodies. Although lately they stopped giving awakening potions with DP events. And you also end up with 12.000 diamonds you can use on stamina/awakening/mines/forge/runes.
So if you do have the $ anyway then using the CS means robbing yourself.
The only time I would say that using CS is good if the hero has a HUGE impact on the HoL meta, goram and sylphi for example. All other CS heroes afterwards were "trash" compared to them. EMPHASIS on compared!!!!
