Ezio is being release not because of community's wish to release him but because he is no longer capable of serving as the 99$ hero since his competition is with sylphi and Goram and the likes of them he is looking pretty average earlier on 7* Ezio was a big threat that reputation he is no longer capable of maintaning it.
they tried their best they released his awakening they started giving diamonds with him but it seems there Profit have Gone down so they are replacing him with another OP hero that will fit in the current Meta
Personally my mouth is even more bitter now
I would love to have Thor as a hero but i would not like to buy him ofcourse.
Hmm what? By "released" he meant "implemented in the game", not available in game shops.
Also Ezio *is* currently one of the best heroes in the game.
