I am a huge fan of aska and use it most of the time. Imo, aska is still the better choice over ceres in most cases.
So, I was very excited to see a pro fox. Hoping to be able to replace aska with a pro pal and gain the pro bonus.
However, janus is a disappointment. Portal? Really?? Who uses portal scroll? I have never seen someone use a portal scroll in my attack summary. Because it’s not really effective compared to summoning. I see people using summoning all the time.
Point being, there is a reason people don’t use portal. Plus, with a constant portal always being generated, it is hard to spawn troops from the tent. Which is still important, to not only protect the tent from enemy units that might have slipped by but also to send ranged troops to choke points as part of strategy.
With aska and pal flute, I am able to battle cry my troops while summoning an additional 80+ moral worth of troops to the front lines of my army (in addition to my moral bar generate troops that are spawned from the tent). These are Extra troops that I normally would not have. Portal only moves the spawn point closer to the hero, you get no additional reinforcements and sometimes having units appear close to the front line is a disadvantage…
So, I hope it’s not too late for janus to be changed. Really, it should be another 15k crystal pal like useless eris. If janus can not be changed I would downgrade it’s value and release a second pro fox that has aska’s summoning plus some kind of secondary pro ability… but not petrification!
Petrification is a whole other rant, that I will not get into. We just got rid of those horrible stone ninjas with their slow movement bug, now we have a pro pal that can cause the same bug, wonderful.
I really really want a pro replacement for aska, Ceres and janus make me sad.
Thank you for letting me vent ?
