Currently, you are only allowed to hire other mercenaries that are your team level or lower. I don’t really get this. It defeats the whole point of hiring a mercenary.
If one were to go out in real life (hypothetical obviously) and hire a mercenary, you wouldn’t want one that’s roughly the same strength as you. You would want to hire the best one you could find.
Same situation applies to Portal Heroes. While I understand not allowing a level 50 player to recruit a level 70 player’s hero, I don’t understand not allowing a level 50 player to recruit a level 51 player’s hero.
The current system screws over the lowest level players in the guild and the highest level players. Low level players can’t recruit anyone, and high level players will never have their heroes recruited (because as the highest in the guild, no one can recruit them with the current system).
So I personally think there should be a buffer of something like 5 levels. A level 50 player should be able to recruit a level 55 player’s hero. I think this would improve the incentive to recruit a mercenary from a teammate and allow higher level player’s heroes to be recruited.
