So I started this game maybe less than a month ago? It’s weird to think how long it’s been, but I’ve loved every minute of it. Personally I’m the type of gamer that gets bored with phone games after a week or so (there are so many games I’ve deleted or are idle now because I got bored) but with this one it’s still very entertaining! Now I have bought the occasional bundle or two, for those moments I can’t quite get past a level but they are worth the real bucks, if you’ve got the allowance to waste- I used birthday cash. I’ve stopped now (which is probably why I’m stuck lol) but it was fun to go through the process of picking which one was best for what I needed at that moment. My favorite part of the game is the story behind every character and the stories of how some of them met one another, I found those fascinating. I’m a writer so personally I found the world building and character development amazing (I’d love to ask them about their world building and brainstorming techniques but I doubt they’d have time for such a thing)! I will say the occasional repeated word throughout the stories bugged me but I’m sure that’ll be fixed if it hasn’t already. Another think is the link your account was weird, like it wasn’t really meant for this game- such a small window that looked like it’d been cropped. I never bother linking mine because of it. Overall a fantastic game, can’t wait to keep playing more and read more stories!!
This game is really fun and has a great system to it. If you want to grind you can to a certain point in this game but if you only have a few minutes to play then this is it too as long as you collect your chest/ 12hr time slot of built up material/xp/gold/etc. The characters are great and the game is always somehow fresh in its own way with a lot of unlocking but fair qualities to it. The developers and artist did an amazing job on this game making it easy to navigate, not cluttered, no ads! And minimal BUY HERE options. They’re so generous with updates and new material, they are amazing! This game is totally worth it. ** I do how ever wish that they’re was some how a way to train your individual characters/ select groups with mini battles or side line stories and I’m talking to besides what’s available in the game like if you have a gold card player and you’re waiting to get another to level them up to two player so you’re stuck on getting cards and need more gems or even gold then you can do a side line quest or battle stages for that single character and it has a higher chance to drop more clothing items meant to help that characters class or even low level to help give the items more level ups.
To be honest, it’s an addictive game when you play it at first glance: great hero fight quality, decent number of heroes and different skills to have. Everything seems perfectly fine at early game. However, there are several problems being displaying when you play more often. First, the summon rate of heroes are kind of low to be honest. The epic hero drop rate is even lower than 5%. Well, you may argue it’s because they are epic and they are rare but the problem is that you need 2700 diamonds to do a 10-card draw which is 50%-50% chance to get epic. It might not seem that bad at first glance but the true problem is that it relays too much on RNG. For epic, you needs an exact same hero to ascend and it’s very very hard in many cases. I now have a epic lucios but my main heroes are at 121 levels. And as a meatshield, it cannot even survive 4s under 2 enemy attacks! It’s ridiculous considering its usage as a frontier. Second, bosses are too strong in some cases and it’s just frustrating to see yourself defeat and defeat again. I am currently at 9-28 and the boss in the front are strong af. Their heath is unbelievably high while their back line is literally op af. Whenever the back line use ultimate, TWO of my heroes just died instantly. I could understand it needs difficulty but it’s just ridiculous when you have some enemies like those. You need to nerf those enemies (bosses).
I actually like this game a lot. It can be fun because it requires less active commitment to play and or grind for exp, weapons, and money. Sadly if you don’t spend real money into the game you have no chance of success. The sheer amount of duplicates needed to Ascend/upgrade your units is staggering. There is a reward system per pull to get a random epic but that is few and far between and isn’t enough to make continual progress as the only things that matter are 4skill epic pulls and they are extremely rare. The tower and campaign are similar but the arcane labyrinth is a demented joke since after you get past the first few days you will probably never beat level 3 without using revival potions and even then the matches are setup to be double or triple power vs any of your troops. And the labyrinth scales against you so if you get stronger your enemies double which is kind of crappy since the game sets quest rewards for completing an event that can’t be defeated by non paying customers. This is a F2P P2W game so it boils down to you will either take it for its content and enjoy it or you won’t . It does have some interesting game mechanics that make it a good time waster without needing a story to drag you through the game. Plus the developer does perform hot fixes when needed and releases updates and content regularly.
I don’t normally write reviews for games, and I’m pretty sure this will get lost somewhere but I just wanted to share my thoughts on this new update where you can rent and hire mercenaries from your friends to help you on your quests. When I first saw this update I was actually really excited, because I was thinking about how they should add a feature where you can use your friends heroes to help you since it’s fairly difficult to get the heroes that you want. I thought adding this feature would be a really nice idea. But then I realized this system needed some work. The fact that you can only use your friends hero for only 1 battle per week is kind of outrageous. Also, once you return your friend’s hero back it doesn’t let anyone else rent it for the entire rest of the week and I think that’s a bit stupid. I think we should be able to rent the hero and actually be able to use them to help us on our quests, and not just for once battle a week. It takes a long time to get through the campaign, and can even take a week or more to get through a stage. This feature would help us to actually play through the game and I think it should be tweaked to make it more enjoyable.
