That's cool, but Ancient Shards could also double the chances of epics.

Hello guys! I am afraid, we can't make Sacred Shards to be that easily obtained, they would lose their charm that way, but we will consider creating some special offers.


As for Ancient Shards, there will also be a double-chance event for those. It will presuppose increased chances of summoning Epic and Legendary champions. We will let you know about that in advance.

When should we expect the Ancient shard double chance? During this summon event? I hate when I use my shards for events then a day or so after they start you double the chances. Or even not during events i had just used them.

That's basically the point though, so you feel compelled to buy.

New event summons champion each Sacred shard = 500 points you will need 12 Sacred shards to get all the rewards limited special offer 50$ for two Sacred shards that's 300$ to get all rewards that is crazy way too much what the hell are they thinking. 


I will pass but thank you.

Plarium should really try at least one time! just to test it to drop the prices.

I guarantee, if the limited special offer was 20$ for 3 sacred shard they would make so much more money a lot more people will buy it and if they don't get a legendary they will not feel so bad and then hate the game and quit!

no one wants to spend 50$ for 2 sacred shards and just get 2 epics and hate the game I mean come on.

Hello guys! What happened with the event today was that we noticed that quite a lot of players quickly reached the cap of 2,500 points and still had more Shards to open, so we decided to make a swift change and tweak the requirements to help out players and give more rewards. Unfortunately, it happened so that during this gap when the 2,500 limit was still active some of the players opened more Shards, but did not receive the points for that. Just a matter of bad timing. Please contact our support team providing them with all relevant information and they will consider your situation: [email protected]

The double chance for Ancient Shards won't be taking place while the current Summon Rush event is active. We will let you know when it will come around.

Do NOT waste money on sacred shards. This game is rigged.

Plarium needs to change the way players summons champions. 

Each time a player uses a shard the percentage should increase until you get a legendary this way players are not wasting shards just increase the chances of getting a legendary and once you get one it resets back. example 12%-24%-48%- 96% Legendary then rests back to12 %. only rests when you get a legendary.


This should be for all shards Ancient and Void. each time you use an Ancient or Void shard the epic and legendary percentage increase until you get one and if it's a epic champion the percentage of getting an epic again will rest the same if it's a Legendary.

This is smart and reasonnable.


I opened a single shard I was saving for a while and got a 1/5 epic that is literally food, this is so infuriating I wouldn't be surprised people quit the game for things like this.

Plarium needs to realise something.


They are always droning on about how Legendary champs should be ''Hard'' to obtain, due to the legendary status. They are not ''Hard'' to obtain though, they are massively paywalled and there is a distinctive difference between the descriptive terms. 

Due to this players quit left and right after opening a sacred shard that they spent over a month to grind for just to get a Woadpainter, or a Deathless.  And why wouldn't they? The 'Value' of sacred shards is set FAR too high. Plarium values them at £25-£35, I wouldn't value them higher than £10 at the heaviest push personally.  

90% of players spend a month at a time to get 1 sacred shard only to be disappointed and that feeling is something else when you're a low spender, yet still a contributor. 

Legendary heroes are NOT rare. They are BOUGHT. If they were 'Rare' we would all be able to grind our way towards getting them, but instead we rely on the luck of the draw. But that's what entices people - The Luck, the RNG, the 'What If'. It's virtual gambling thus it is addictive and an extremely popular strategy for cash cowing. 


I do think however, Plarium are coming around.. Mods seem to be more active on forums giving more detailed responses and being somewhat more Open to the player base. There's a long way to go of course, but I think things are starting to change. Perhaps in due course, among other things, this Shard system will be redesigned to be more enticing, rewarding and effective for players to stick out the long haul and not just spill their guts on pack offers only to quit after the 'bet regret' kicks in. I mean come on, Look at the video shared earlier in this thread not much else needs saying... It is a HEAVILY flawed system

As for Ancient Shards, there will also be a double-chance event for those. It will presuppose increased chances of summoning Epic and Legendary champions. We will let you know about that in advance.

So basically, Plarium expects us to spend $50 dollars per 2 shards, just to run the risk of either pulling a useless epic, or even a useless legendary? - c'mon plarium! Your mighty sacred shards are extremely overpriced and here are some of the reasons:


1- they don't guarantee that you will get a legendary 


2- Even if you get a legendary, there is a HIGH chance that it's going to be an absolutely useless legendary (Mountain King, Errol)


3- at least 70% of the epic and legendary champs in the game, are useless for endgame content.


With all the above said; Plarium expects us players to spend $50 to:

- gamble at the possibility of getting a legendary and then gamble at the possibility of pulling a GOOD legendary. Same applies to Epic champions!


I know some players are either too stupid to realize how rigged this is, or too rich to even care about the money they spend, but you can be sure as hell that you won't get anything from me!

I find it frustrating that I have given into temptation and bought all kinds of shards and have yet to have received a formidable legendary. Yet I go into the arena and see teams with all solid legendaries and most times teams with 2 disgustingly OP legendaries like Martyr. Meanwhile, I'm trying to take these teams down with Gorgorab, Skullcrusher, Alika and Sikara (who's A2 is still broken (removes counterattack buff and still gets counterattacked). How am I supposed to compete? Even doing pulls, I never get anything that improves my team.
