Custom Units - Has anyone...

Has anyone looked at the actual units and figured out how Hasbro calculated the points? I know using common sense makes custom unit pretty easy ..just a thought question

This is a pretty common question. There really is no specific formula for costing units as far as "Special Ability A=X", or "Attack 5=35 points", etc. I believe HS Toolkit has some sort of rough point cost calculator. But the result based on the created unit is overlooked because cost is so skewed.

What the draft cost of a unit comes down to really, as many custom creators will attest, is play testing the custom hero or squad. This, and comments and critiques from others in the community to help hone the custom, and cost him as true as possible according to these factors.

Welcome to the boards, Eric!

On behalf of our highly experienced and thoroughly thoughtful community I extend to you a laurel and a hearty handshake.

I think if you take some time to browse the customs and ask designers specific questions about their creations they would be happy to answer them.
