How long you've been playing Heroes?

Recommended Posts

Since release day and checked in pretty much every day. My first 5 star was Lucina and I remember I got Lyn soon after. I used them both for a long time until Ike was released. For CYL1 I picked Ike and didn't get Lyn until a few months later. Still don't have Lucina or Roy. For CYL2 I picked Ephraim and haven't pulled any others. My favourite event is Tempest Trials for all the orbs and free characters, and my least favourite was Voting Gauntlet until I stopped taking it seriously, now it's Forging bonds or whatever the supporting event is called. Overall I'd say the game has improved a lot since the start, and the developers have done a great job listening to feedback and rotating through games for banners. At this point most of my favourites are in the game even if I haven't pulled all of them yet, but it's been great to see old favourites with new art and often voiced for the first time.

I have been playing since day one.  My first pulled 5* was Roy who I still have and use sometimes, the first unit I 5*ed was Cherche.  I am mostly F2P and will stay F2P since buying orbs is to pricey for me right now.

I still remember how changing skills was meant to use stamina. Thank goodness this never went live.

Also, apparently the Training Tower stamina costs were considered a half-cost discount on the planned long-term costs. At a time when it was the most efficient training location, and stamina capped at 50.

And there was no cap on the cost of story missions, so if you were far enough in the story (or running higher difficulties), you could do only 2 missions before running out of stamina.

I started playing when it released but I took a bit of a break during last fall due to school and me always having this back and forth between focusing on Pokemon Go and Heroes. I came back around March-ish and been playing pretty regularly since~

Played since launch day. I got Hector [+Def, -HP] as my first 5* within the first week, so I immediately spent money trying to get more units.

I've been playing since release, but I've been a bit detached from Heroes since October of last year. The Ayra fiasco as well as the 2nd generation of BST rubbed me the wrong way and sapped my enthusiasm for FEH. I used to theorycraft and constantly check the natures of my units. I spent $80, $40 on Deep Devotion and $40 on Blazing Shadows (my purchases gave me nothing). These days I just roll with whatever I get and do not plan on spending any more money on Heroes.

Shoutout to my +SPD, -ATK Ryoma who carried me through most of the game, especially Book I. Ryoma, alongside Ephraim and Nino, was my mainstay team for taking on content and the Arena. Currently I either run Armor Emblem (Black Knight, Brave!Hector, Brave!Ephraim, M!Grima) or some of my favorite units (Marisa, Cherche, F!Morgan, F!Grima // Summer!Cordelia, Bride!Cordelia, Summer!Robin, PA!Azura). While I should play Arena regularly for the rewards, it just doesn't interest me anymore.

For old time's sake, here are my first 100 pulls when I was regularly active.

I started on launch day, I've only missed 1 or 2 daily login bonuses. I'll still get my stuff even if I don't plan on playing that day.

My first 5 star unit was Camilla, followed by Marth and Ryoma in the same pool.

Been playing since launch, although now I'm on and off with it depending on whether there's something that interests me…

 

Played daily for a very long time, before taking a break for a few months and now I go on and off… I don't do a lot of the hard-core stuff, so there's not as much for me to do as some players… Also knowing that took me a while to understand gacha mechanics, so I got frustrated a lot in the early days…

 

I also don't buy orb at other than the monthly promotions, and the one time I stupidly spent five orbs trying to get Myrrh… The orb prices just seem atrocious otherwise, and I have a ton of other regular games that I do spend money on…

I started around roughly one week after launch, aka the time when I was inexperienced enough that I did dumb things like promoting a -Spd Tharja.

Been playing since launch day. I still remember the horror of 50 max stamina and story missions costing ~23 stamina. I also remember the absolute pain in the rear the first TT was. Almost managed to get Quickened Pulse, but my roommate convinced me to go with him on a walk and that meant I didn't have enough time left. First 5* units were Lucina, then Merric, both in one set from Lucina's banner. They carried me quite a ways alongside a 4* Femui and 4* Clarine. Unfortunately for Merric he's been phased out by Julia, chosen of Naga, but Lucina remains one of my main swords (despite me having a glorious +8 Masked Marth) and Femui still sees some action when I need tough blue melee. Stayed F2P throughout, although I seriously considered breaking it for Morgan. In the end she came home on the Stance banner, so it turned out alright.

Can't say I'm quite as enamored with the game as I used to be, but IS keeps putting out good content despite the powercreep, so I keep at it.

Since release, I think. I dropped the game for a month or two because my old phone couldn't handle the game but I came back around the end of the first Spring banner and have been playing almost every day since then. The game's been feeling a bit stale outside of GHB/BHB/LHB but I have so many good units that I won't quit until the servers go down. After all I'm still waiting for a Seasonal/Legendary/Brave Eirika. Or a SS remake, that would be nice too.

This many people play Heroes from the beginning? IS should clearly give more credits to our opinion. Well, except maybe mine. =)

I've been playing since May 2018. I am tier 18.5 in arena but still can't do 7 arena assault matches in a row. Infernal content is doable for me but haven't bothered with abyssal just yet.

I've been around since launch week, and have been consistently on ever since. I didn't have a tablet at the time, so I could only play on emulators. I had pretty terrible luck at the beginning, with no 5* units. Even grabbing a 4* unit was something of a rarity. Really, I should've rerolled, but meh, I didn't. Est was a star unit for me for awhile, since I had no 5* units. Roy was my first 5* unit, and I still have him, although I don't really use him so often. Est, however, has blossomed into a 5*+10. What's even better is that the first one I pulled (+Spd/-Def) serves as the base!

I also remember the Emulator Apocalypse with, if I remember correctly, the 1.8 ver. update. Suddenly, none of the emulators worked anymore. Fortunately for me, someone discovered a version of Bluestacks that still could run it!

From launch week, but not necessarily launch day. Or more accurately, I did try playing on launch day, but didn't have a satisfactory solution for accessing the game, so I'm pretty sure my account now is not from that day. I didn't have a smartphone back then, and the first few days were mostly occupied trying various emulators, and it'd have been a new account every time. Leapdroid (now discontinued) worked, sort of, and eventually managed to get through and link an account before being hit by the dreaded 803-3001 error. For the first few months I pretty much had to live with it, using an additional app to reset the config whenever the error happened.

The only 5* unit I got was an off-focus Maria. Obviously knowing what I do now, I would have re-rolled, but I didn't really understand the game back then so I just rolled with it.

Ah, yes, I remember the 803-3001 days... Glad I don't have to deal with that anymore!

I've played since the day after launch and I don't think I missed a single day. Could have been day 1, but it took me a while rerolling until I got a Camilla to start with. Didn't know how hard it would be to get 5* units, so I wasn't chancing playing the game without her. Knowledge of IVs wasn't widespread right at the start either, so I was lucky to find she was +spd -res later on.

While SI has been a good thing, I remember the simplicity of the pre-SI days were pretty interesting. Hector and Takumi dominating the arena, Kagero being really good to counter Takumi, Ryoma being the best red in the game, etc. Fury boosting your arena score due to how stats and score calculated was pretty funny too. I sure DON'T miss the 50 stamina limit or the huge stamina costs on story maps. And to think they stated that celebrating the launch meant all stamina costs were cut in half, meaning they intended to double them. And they wanted to make switching skills cost stamina too. Good thing they monitored feedback and dropped those ideas.

I also kind of miss the feeling of roughing it early on in the game. Camilla was my only 5* besides a 5* Fae I rolled soon after starting (but she was another green, so I didn't use her), so she kind of carried me. The rest of my team was a 4* Selena, 4* Peri and 4* Virion I got within my first 2 summoning sessions. That was my team for a good while, and they held things down surprisingly well. Nowadays you get a handful of free 5*s to start off and way more orbs and feathers, so I guess using 4* units doesn't happen much anymore besides maybe the emblem quests super early on.

I didn't spend any money on the game until the first bride banner, as I expected to skip it so I didn't save up orbs, but then they had Cordelia on it. I just could not miss her. I spent a few hundred bucks total by the end of last year, but pretty much none of it ever got anything worthwhile. So so since December I've been mainly F2P again besides a couple monthly orb deals and the BK pack.

Have been playing regularly since day 1, it was a fun diversion from Pokémon GO during boring times at work heh. My first 5* was Fae which I still use a lot to this day.
