Earlier this week Clicker Heroes came out with a new patch that added in 9 new heroes. I'd stopped playing recently but having some new things to enter into a spreadsheet was enough to bring me back. More numbers! Must make them bigger!
Unfortunately it doesn't seem like a whole lot of interesting thought went into these new heroes. Each one costs 1x10^15 times as much as the previous one. It does 7.37x10^12 times as much damage as the previous one. They all have the exact same upgrades, with the same cost progression, and all of the upgrades only work on the individual champion.
In short... Not a whole lot to figure out, sadly. Each one is worse than the one before it because the cost escalated more than the damage did. It'll probably shake out the same as Frostleaf did... Overpriced for a while, but eventually you get enough souls to make it trivial to get a bunch of a new hero when you ascend and then you'll want to pile all of your gilds onto that one.
On the plus side they did add in a shortcut where you can pay a little more to guarantee you gild the hero you want with a single click. You expect to spend 66 souls by doing it manually or you can pay 80 souls and get it done in one click instead of 33. That is a price I will _gladly_ pay should I ever decide I want my gilds on someone other than Frostleaf.
Will this update keep me playing? Well, it got me back into the game... And I can't buy some of the new heroes so maybe I want to stick around until I can do that... Or maybe I'll just quit again soon. Time will tell!
