I’ve seen a lot of one star reviews saying that it’s impossible to complete alliances or get three star heroes. The game is fairly easy to pick up and play but takes some time to learn its mechanics like gold economy, shared hero pool, leveling without waste, builds, positioning and item min/maxing. I’ve only put about 40 hours into the game so far, but like most competitive games out there it takes time to learn the strategies and make them work, but with time it becomes easy to build up the alliances you need or bring units to three stars. The game has a great UI (much better than most other auto chess games out there) that really does a good job giving you the important info you need to know quickly while you are trying to buy new units between rounds. It’s also got a nice reward structure that makes it good to keep playing and building up new boards, banners, emotes, and win streak flames. My only couple of gripes are that the meta is in flux all the time (which is understandable because it’s in beta) as they are trying to work on the balance. It also runs at a slower pace with lots of down time between rounds, rather than the quicker stride that some auto chess battlers like Teamfight Tactics has.
Had to delete it, there isn’t enough time in my schedule and it is addicting. Still, I would have loved playing this daily if I had the time so I will live vicariously through you. There is a large learning curve, but it is worth the effort as you will find a complex strategy game with near infinite replay-ability. It is not really possible to exploit combos as you get different hero choices each game/battle and have to roll with it on the fly. For beginners: you can play an untimed tutorial, and after that against AI until you figure things out. The game also lets you watch other players in your game, including after you lose (you can continue to spectate). Tip: pay attention to the hero’s clans (each has 2-3) and the synergy... if you don’t, you won’t have a chance at 1st place, after the first few ranks.
This game is supported by Steam, Valve, and Apple; and yet there is already too many problems with this game. First off the game destroys your battery and the phone heats up every time I play for even half an hour. The game says strategy battler but all I get is an RNG market hoping I get what I want after knowing how the game is even played. Despite going any type of build in this game it’s always dependent on whether or not your market is in your favor. I understand the game is in beta but already in the long run this game isn’t set up correctly to be a “strategy battler”. I have the game kept just in case they do a major change or update, as I would like to see this game blow up and morph into something that’s a different and successful game. Even if everyone is dealing with the same stupid market it’s still just hoping you get what you want. It’s even more RNG than a deck building game. I would recommend not even touching this game unless you want to get raged at bots that somehow always have money and the right units they want in the long run of the game. Game needs too many tweaks and I am disappointed that this is the “new” game from Valve when they hardly do any work on their other games.
After spending some time with the game, I have to say that while it definitely can be fun, the bugs currently there aren’t worth it yet to switch over from the other main Auto Chess mobile game. That game may lack the detail and visuals of this game, and doesn’t have a bot mode, but the controls are easy to use and the UI in general is more friendly to those still learning Auto Chess. Though right now the main gripe I’m having with this game is the fact that anytime it goes out of memory on the phone, it wants you to download a fresh 450MB, and while I’m not certain if it is actually downloading anything(which would be terrible for those with limited data plans and aren’t on WiFi) it takes anywhere from 5-10mins to load, which is a bit frustrating. Pros: - visuals are really good - items are easier to understand and use - bot mode that lets you take your time, which is great when still learning the game Cons: - Loading game takes way too long and by the time it loads I don’t really want to play anymore - UI is a bit complicated and takes time to get used to, even against bots - Touch controls are off, when trying to drag or place, instead of being in the center of the square it wants you to be specifically on the bottom, which causes some inadvertent switching or misplacements. For now I’ll be going back to Auto Chess mobile, but I am looking forward to this game getting many of its bugs worked out and coming to play again.
The game is solid.. Probably the best auto chess out right now. With that being said, after a bit the game becomes dull and frustrating to play. The match ups seem unreasonably ill-proportioned. You’ll start the game off and build your set up without much of a problem until the half way point, then it seems to become impossible to get the characters you need in order to complete alliances. If you do get lucky and manage to complete a few alliances, you’ll find it impossible to make a character more than two stars, while the other players in your match up already have two or three characters that are three stars. The game seems to have some kind of uneven level up mechanics that need serious work. Not a bitter player. The game can be very enjoyable. It’s challenging, which deployed in the right way can make any game a lot of fun, but this game needs to adjust its matches or else it will have a lot of player burn out and not be able to keep anyone’s interest for long.

WHITE SPIRE AWAITS A LEADER...
A vertical metropolis of gambling and grit, just beyond the reach of Stonehall and Revtel; White Spire is known as a smugglers' paradise with loose morals and colorful residents to spare. Despite being overrun with syndicates, gangs, and secret societies, White Spire has never descended into chaos for one reason: Momma Eeb. She was respected… she was loved… and unfortunately, she was murdered last week.
Eeb’s death has sent one question rippling through White Spire’s underworld: who is going to run the city?
