I was wondering about that. Can't you just bring heroes to choose from in 2nd tide, like first edition? Is there any reason that it wouldn't "just work"?
Yeah, that's what I do. While I did upgrade to Second Tide in everything else, we still play with 5 heroes, 1 of each class, with max 3 active at any time, just like in Season 1. It works just fine with all the other Second Tide changes, and (imo) just adds so much more theme, variety, and fun. I wouldn't want to play any other way.
