Yep... Told you he's good

When you get to 5 drones, cranking out 2 at a time, his damage output skyrockets (2nd skill), but only for single target damage.

Yeah he's crazy strong. You can just have him sit back and heal your units too. I've been able to hold off waves with him in the back since his range is rather small. Overall, pretty damn good. If he's this good I can't wait to try the ultimate hero. He better be a weapon to surpass Metal Gear!

Same here. Didnt get the deal either.

Still lacking Ajax, Fate, and X.

The sale was 3 of the highest tier heroes for $5! Whoa. If I bought them all individually it would be around $17? I couldn't pass this up. This is an insane sale.

There was another offer for $4 with Ajax and Mark X plus 1000 upgrade points. Good deal but obviously 3x heroes better. And good thing I bought the 3x heroes because after I did the other offer disappeared. The heroes overlapped so that's probably why but if I bought the cheaper one I'd definitely miss that huge Black Friday-esque sale. I'm so happy. More stuff to do in the game now!
Damn. The Ajax, Mark and 1k upgrade points deal is the better one of my offers. (The other is Shatra, Darwin and 500 UP). Would have easily spent 5 bucks for your three hero package, but since I don't need those UP and am not that interested in Ajax, it'd just be a little discount on Mark here.

I'm really sad / mad right now. Knowing other ppl getting other (and way better) deals doesn't feels good. Seems unfair ...

Ferb, I know what we are gonna do today!

I actually don't think there's a specific time. It seems to be a deal that appears after some random amount of time. I recall people getting deals two weeks ago and I was bummed since I bought Shatra and most people had some real with Shatra. I imagine it builds these deals based on what you purchased and after some random time has passed.

Okay I just tested Darwin. He's alright. He's a melee fighter with some long range ability (like Shatra) but honestly feels a lot closer to Paragon, maybe because his movement is much slower. I definitely think Graaff is way better. Darwin is decent but I feel like even Shatra is better because he's more nimble.

Darwin's first skill puts you in the air and burns enemies, really great for mobs and avoiding damage However, I often got my troops destroyed using this because he no longer tanks and the enemies go straight to your soldiers. His second skill is a attack lowering skill which can also stun enemies when upgraded. Upgraded version is very useful as you can get in a lot of dps within the few seconds the enemy is stunned.

His movement is interesting. He can make a giant leap to an enemy before engaging but can't do it constantly (?). He can also fly to long distance spots making him very maneuverable. His big draw back is he's rather slow in close range movement, being an ape and all. Running small distances, disengaging enemies, changing positions, etc are easy ways to get him killed. Long range retreat is best for him.

Overall, like I mentioned, he's decent. Not bad. But not crazy amazing like I felt with Dr. Graaff. He's probably the best tank in the game however. He makes up for many of Paragon's shortcomings. Random comment but I feel Shatra is an in between of the general classes more than any other character. Long range and close range normal attacks and skills.

Anyhow, next up, the ultimate hero. One that I've been excited to use!

Darwin's pretty fast if you abuse his jetpack movement. Basically, aim at the direction you want to go to, but tap farther. His movespeed is insane at that state, and can be used even in close range if you tap farther, and just stop him or use a skill when he's at your intended spot. Just needs a little micro-ing, as usual.

If you havent noticed yet, Dr. Graaff's weakness is his mobility, and his weak "entry" after you summon him either from death or after you pulled him out.

I'm slowly going through on impossible. Lots of fun! Though beating the last two levels on world 1 were a pain. I had to use Mark X to beat the second to the last one.

Anyhow, I have my own ranking list now for the heroes (obviously personal opinion):

1) Mark X
2) Dr. Graaff
3) Sha'tra
4) Darwin
5) Taggins
6) Fate
7) Kara
8) Paragon

* Ajax is unranked since I don't have him

Paragon is without a doubt my least favorite. I actually am trying to max him out so I don't have to use him again unless I get bored of everyone else. Aside from him looking and sounding cool, he's just not very good and very very micro. Shatra and Darwin was a toss up but eventually I picked Shatra over Darwin just because Shatra has one of the best skills in the entire game and is a good blend of long range and short range. Darwin is still very good but going aerial on his special attack is a hit/miss for me.

Mark X as expected stands above them all. However he's not that "cool" imo. I was hoping he'd be like Metal Gear just from the thumbnail but he ended up just being a tank, bummer. Extremely powerful, fast, tanky, and great specials. Just his animations aren't that cool - shoots from machine guns, small blast from main cannon, tosses gas. The only cool thing I thought was throwing out troops but they're very... weak... Decent power and great for stalling but they die way too quick. Mark X's only downside to me is that he's primarily a long range attacker but his gas skill (very powerful) requires you to run through enemies constantly. On high difficulties you'll lose almost all your health doing so. Shatra has a close range special but since he's a close range fighter it makes sense. Your long range heroes should be kiting or hanging in the back and only tanking when there's a few enemies or when your troops are dying. I don't like running them right into the enemy army personally.
