In the past, cp tokens were given as rewards. However, players wanted more flexibility. So, the dev convert it to cps. Here it is:Demiurge Quote:"With the introduction of Classic Legends packs, we heard that players wanted greater flexibility in what Legendary packs they were able to redeem. Starting in the next few days, we will be changing rewards from Legendary Tokens to Command Points in a few areas. Here are the details:So, it won't work. Look at the history of bonus heroes, shards, players don't want to be "locked" and want flexibility.
I've been all-in on Latest to stay current, and then using my 5* and 4* shards to play catch up on older characters. It seems like a long road either way, I'm not sure what the right move is for me from here. I feel like I've got what I'm doing down pretty cleanly, but I also feel like going to Classic would perhaps ironically be a faster way to grow my roster out the other direction too.
It's not just about shards. 4* champions are extremely significant reward factories that kick out a large amount of CP and tokens. Over many years and thousands of pulls, a 20% increase in 4* pulls has allowed me to build a 4* dupe farm that spits out enough tokens to champion all the latest guys before they leave the latest pool.This whole discussion is just bizarre to me. Every time I bring up what I do people are like "oh nobody could ever do that it's impossible" and I'm like "no I actually did this, here's how" and they're like "impossible, nobody can do this, nobody has ever done it, terrible idea."Well, I did it! It actually happened! There is evidence!You can look up my roster in the alliance Clochards to see what it looks like when you only spend CP on classics for 5 or more years. I've spent money over the years, but it's probably about 10% of what you think I've spent. I don't think I've ever qualified as a whale. I've had 5* covers expire, when that was still a thing. I've traded in 3 saved covers to get a guy championed plenty of times. I've had guys where the covers fell like 13/0/5. I've pulled lots of Banner and Wasp and Cable covers. I didn't die! My phone didn't explode!
