just wanted to know for the spawn formula lets say there is 3 heroes and no monsters left on the board and you have to spawn (3 - 0) - 1 = 2? 0?

The formula is different on different cards.

Are you asking how to compute the arithmetic value of (3-0)-1?

(3-0) - 1 = 2

the rules say number of monsters - heroes which just didnt make sense since it be (0 - 3) - 1 = -2

it should be number of heroes - monsters

I think you misread that. The rules say to subtract the enemies from the heroes. So yes, spawn 2.

Yeah, not sure how that got scrambled. The rules are not always super clear about everything, but this one is crystal. It's heroes minus monsters, sometimes minus another one or two. It never says monsters minus heroes.

Just a language thing. It says somewhere "subtract monsters from heroes" - which is heroes minus monsters. But that may not have been obvious to a non-native speaker who is trying to grok a pretty involved system all at once.

On at least some of the cards it seems the more heroes the fewer spawns. This seems counterintuitive.

You are reading the algebra wrong. One of the incrementing variables is heroes.

Given equal board states, the third and fifth hero add 1 spawn each, and the fourth hero adds new shadows. If you kept the formula the same, the fourth hero would add a new spawn, hence it switches to a formula that spawns 1 less.
