So currently on S1 there is a Blue Team Invasion with a focus on Jessie, K&S and Jafar. Blue team has the fewest heroes as of 1.17.10 at 31. When you get a Hero Power Up you get a choice of +5 to 3 heroes and a 4th to +1 for all of Blue Team. Essentially a +1 to the team you use assuming you use a team entirely of that color heroes. This may be akin to bad luck of the draw on my end but it is still an issue that I feel may apply to other players and add some inconsistency. Currently I have had 48 power ups used on my team including 2 of the featured heroes versus 56 on the whole team. Perhaps this is an isolated issue but I think this weekly game mode could use some sprucing up and I have a couple ideas as to how.
The first is simply give more choices for the boosts. Even one possibly two slots on this would make such a big difference in the rate of useful focused power ups in comparison to the less useful team power ups. Another option is make one of the slots contain a featured hero everytime. This way players are incentivized to use those 3 heroes as they are guarenteed to be stronger than usual instead of starting with a simple +3 or what have you. The most thematically sound option is too remove the other teams heroes from being targets of a power up. This way you are both limiting the pool of heroes as the game mode seems to intend players to play and you make those heroes on average stronger than its current implementation.
Let me know what people think of these changes. Are these sound ideas, have you had the same unlucky streaks, are players happy with the state of invasion as is? Let’s have a discussion.
