GEN 1 - 3 UNITS WITHOUT HEROES:

Sentinels:  Acolyte, Overseer, Annihilator

Survivors:  Lancer, Detonator, Excavator

Corpus:     Manticore, Hades, Hermes, Ogre


My guess is:  Acolyte, Detonator and Hades.   I really want a Hades hero.

    can narrow it down to 2 per faction based on release order (as heroes have been released in the same order as units in gen 3 so far with gen 1 seeming random)

    Survivors Detonator/Lancer  

    Corpus: Hades/Manticore 

    Sentinels: Acolytes/Annihalators 


    If i were to guess it would be

    Lancer-Manticore-Acolyte

    the release theme being infantry, in the case of corpus anti-infantry (plus the pegasus was released not too long ago so they would have gotten 3 anti air units [not even including the fact that ares can hit high altitude] in the time the other factions have gotten 1)

    would also set them up for a relatively easy balance for the next waves of heroes aswell with

    Excavator-Hades/Hermes-Annihalator 

    the theme being tanks, but hard to tell what corpus would do in that case, may have to see what the event antagonist is.

    There has now been a new hero for what is it 3 events now. You usually see them in one time use units, but that seemed to have stopped. It appears the new thing now is diamond tech for the unique units

      Kix Braden said on Discord that the next Hero will be a Survivor Hero.  And that only 1 Hero will be released.

    all the heroes are outdated now and not used so pointless. kix bring out far too many units making units obselete far too quickly so why have heroes when still only able put 1/2 in toon and most not even used now, heroes need changed and unlimited in a toon.

    only heroes i use are nick n mikey.... braden sometimes for pve but rest irrelevant. why even bother..... stop rapid unit production and bring out heroes relevant in game.... i.e. controller....dev...would love to see a leg hover hero lol

    I guess I can forgive so many inaccuracies in a first time post.

    So either a Detonator, Lancer, Excavator, or Ace hero.    Last two are much less likely.   I'd take the Lancer hero over the Detonator.

    Unless the Detonator hero has a 20 second shield, an OJug size blast, and a 15 second repair time.

    detonator should be free repair if hes alone in the platoon either way, standard detonators are.

    So looks like this will be the new way. We would usually get 1 time use hereos per event and then the permanent after 3 months. The good thing with only one we will only have to deal with 1 and then getting the hero tech for it. Will have to wait and see what it is.
