Using Marvel Heroes as an example, that $25 will get you roughly:
- 4-5 of the game's $5 starter heroes (Thing, Scarlet Witch, Storm, Daredevil or Hawkeye) that are nowhere near as good as the paid-for heroes.
- 2 heroes that probably haven't been nerfed to high heaven yet, most of the "fun" heroes cost $10-15 USD. These heroes can include famous ones like Jean Grey, Cyclops, Cable, Wolverine, Captain America, Colossus, etc.
- ONE of the premium heroes, these heroes cost $20 a piece - Ironman, Spider-man and Deadpool
- Anything left over is converted to premium currency (G's) that can buy anything from booster potions to vanity pets to overpriced costumes ($5-20 for a SINGLE purely-cosmetic costume).
The prices may be outrageous, but this game recently switched over to a LoL-like method of earning heroes - you collect crystals (splinters) that periodically drop at a rate of 1 crystal per 5-15 minutes of normal playing. Then once you collect at least 200 crystals, you can buy one of the starter heroes - 400 crystals can get you one of the mid-priced $10 heroes - and 600 will land you one of the $20 heroes. You can also take a gamble with their RNG "mystery box" and get a random hero of any-tier for 175 crystals.
Just imagine a watered-down version of Diablo 2 (the CEO of the MH company is the creator of D2) milking the use of the Marvel license, that has almost everything monetized against you and that's Marvel Heroes in a nutshell.
