    Realistically we still have some time before 4.3 actually ships. We have not yet submitted to Android/Apple, and usually that process takes some time, even when they don't complain about anything.

      Important note about 4.3:

      Internally, this is probably the biggest release we've ever had, which is why it has taken so long. Historically we used a middleware layer that handled device-specific things like the app store, notifications, keyboard input, device notches, etc. Unfortunately, that middleware company closed their doors several years ago, and due to constantly evolving iOS/Android requirements, we were no longer able to ship the game any longer with the middleware as part of the game. So we had to rewrite all this code from scratch. So you'll see changes to how the keyboard works on your device, and how we react to rotating your device and how we deal with the notches is a bit different also. I believe most of the historical notification problems will be fixed. Hopefully there will be no visible store changes. All this said, I expect there to be some glitches here and there with specific devices, simply because there are such a crazy number of different devices that we simply can't test them all, and all this new code is very device-specific. On the positive side of things, this will allow us to take advantage of new device features more quickly than we've been able to do in the past, and it should help speed up development time going forward.

          As the only one who can even afford to max ultimates I find them pretty underwhelming for the cost. 10% increase for 5 bln gold each is a bit too much. 3 bln would have been enough. Get rid of the loot penalty at least to make farming a bit less tedious.

            isn't the entire point of the extra level is to make people farm for a while before next time they increase max level?

              I am excited for Theseus. Think it will work very well with my Aphro environment base. Also thanks for the patron balance cuz I really wanted to see that.

                        You guys are making my soul tired, and here i thought i just got done buying and upgrading heroes. Just finished dropping another half billion in upgrades on my hero. Thought “whew would hate to do all that again lol”

                        With that said, yaaay more heroes. AND NOW WE GET THREE, WHERE ARE YOUR GODS NAO!?!

                        My poor lvl 13 towers will just have to wait.

                          My Hercules can already 1v5 the gods and win. If I had Theseus to boost him I wonder what will happen?

                            Does Theseus boost base stat or the state after calculating the boost?

                              Oh quick question when you have time Leroy. will we need to repurchase heroes for the new academies or will they draw from the same pool?
