    Right! And without forgetting to check the store twice a day haha.
    So that would cost another 5x purchases for 3415 HP, totalling 24,210 HP overall.
    I've your're truly optimal, you should do just 10x from two different store appearances, for 8795 x2 = 17,590 HP.

    Well, I got some heroics from lightning rounds. Slowly grinding away to get a 13th Sabretooth. First heroic gives me shards for 4* Widow. "That's weird. I should only be getting 4* shards for Sabretooth." So I check to see my targeted heroes and the game added Widow even though she's fully covered already. So, yes, wasted shards do exist.
    The game doesn't just automatically add Targeted Heroes. Somehow you must have accidentally clicked on the TH button for Widow. Also, even though she is fully covered those shards are "wasted" since they can be applied to a duplicate Widow (just like pulling a new Widow organically). Once the duplicate is created you can sell it or keep it as a farming character.
    I realize you may not want a second Widow nor want to TH her for the rest of the shard to get a duplicate but the shards still aren't wasted they just aren't of any particular use to you (and no that isn't the same as wasted).
    Well, it did. My account is bugged and did the same thing with bonus heroes so literally before every single time I pulled tokens or used cp I had to make sure that the game didn't add any extra characters. Figured that I wouldn't have to deal with this anymore but I guess that TH is just a reskinned Bonus Heroes.

    Do you use a screen protective layer on your device? Or have a screen crack anywhere?
    If your cover or screen is not prefect sometimes your phone can 'feel' presses on random areas, increasing the likelihood that you get miss-clicks throughout your roster-scrolling screen.
    No one's game is truly 'bugged' this way, it's got to be the device somehow. 
    I had a new alliance mate that thought the only way to add the Favorite Heart was on the single Character info page itself, and didn't realize that you could add a BH heart all through the main roster screen.

    So we got another deal you can buy shards but you will be left with extra or wasted unless you favorite them.  This seems to be the direction we are heading.  
    Just like dilution, it’s a “feature” not a “problem”. I’m so glad I’m at the place I am in this game. I have all the 4s champed except the latest two. I have all the meta and near-meta fives champed minus Hawkeye, whom I have a clear path to. And I have more or less been able to keep up with new releases (in the event one becomes new meta). I feel all these hurdles and moving more toward pay to win only hurts those who haven’t cleared the wall I have and is why I no longer recommend this game to friends like I used to, even though I love and am obsessed with it.

    Nah, take a chance. 
    You've mentioned the ultra conservative route and that works for sure, but Hawkeye will become 'playable' much sooner than waiting to acquire all 13 covers.
    Plus, you've got Kate Bishop who will guarantee even color distribution throughout her champ levels, and will surely gain them faster than you will through TH on Hawkeye directly. 
    I say take the chance and use shards on that purple cover to go 2/2/2, just save shards up after that, and see how fast Kate gets things moving. 
    Are you actively pulling from Classics as you go or saving / hoarding? 
    Actually, that was just an example to illustrate the point. I'm not actually targeting him atm, as I'm trying to complete my 10-cover Thano5. I usually reserve my CP for special legendary stores that seem worth it.

    But I agree that at that point you should probably just buy the cover with shards and not postpone it until (probably MUCH) later.

    No, the screen is fine and I did a test earlier where I quickly scrolled back and forth on my roster and specifically tapped on the TH heart while it was scrolling. The game didn't detect any of those presses on the heart. Even scrolling very slowly and barely hitting the heart the heart will move a little bit but not enough to see it as a full press. Not to mention that when I scroll on my roster my finger is on about the top to middle of a cover on the bottom row of characters so it wouldn't be close to accidentally hitting the heart anyway.

    Can we have an option, when opening packs or somewhere else, that will stop us from using tokens when we’ve collected enough shards for 1 cover? Then we can stop and refocus onto a different character and not waste shards. 

    I’m starting to see how precious these suckers are.

    Despite my concerns, I decided to give it some time to look how the whole thing would fold out, not wanting to be too quick to judge.

    But I gotta say, especially with the new influx of shards through the feeder / champ rewards update... I'm more and more left with the very strong feeling that this whole feature has been implemented in a way that is way too micro-manage-y. And I hate it.

    Why does this feel like one step forward and 10 steps back?

    I was told I would have more targeted progress with this replacement to bonus heroes...

    And here I am staring at a bunch of 5* champs with 200 shards sitting there that I NEVER plan to finish because they’re not a character I chose to target

    Could you just bring back BH already please?

    You mispelled “shargeted” progress i think

    All they had to do was make this a new currency.  Or better yet, just award ISO and/or HP, and open stores where ISO/HP can be spent for specific heroes.  All of the shard stuff was completely unnecessary.
