... and still love the game, playing it every day! (Day 1584) Like any game things are easier when you pay. But that’s mainly in the beginning. And that’s only if you want to progress faster or challenge other well-established players and teams. If you just want to play events and collect covers, you can. You can select the difficulty level for an event even one below your current ranking, if that’s what you need. I’m at a point or I can get the 4-star cover progression reward for almost every event. I still can’t effectively challenge the top teams in PVP, I but that’s OK since it’s not necessary for the game (or me). It’s one of the few games that I felt the need less and less to pay to play the longer I played. Of course at first it took patience and perseverance and the need to resist the desire to have to progress to the top so quickly. I’m glad there are events that are pretty easy and those that are very hard, so it’s not too discouraging nor boring. I’m still experimenting with different combinations of players and teams. I will admit that like many it seems like the AI cheats, because he gets so many more combinations of matches than I ever do. (I call the AI “Sir Hacksalot”.) But most of the time I am a way stronger team than his so I can forgive it.
This game is great. It is the only game I’ve ever played that I have actively played daily since launch. During that time I’ve seen a lot of improvements to this game, most positive. I disagree with pay to play. If you put in enough time, and do the right events, you hit a point where the game is giving you enough tokens (in game currency) and covers to keep yourself going. You can win new covers through gameplay or legendary covers that they hand out as you level your character. You get rewarded with new characters for leveling existing characters. Or for $10/month you can go VIP and get daily prizes. The reason I gave it 3 stars is as follows. The game needs to figure out what to do with extra covers. If you have a character that is not championed and you get a 6th cover in any one color, you have to get rid of it. This makes it very frustrating when you do not have enough iso to champion the character, or you have less than 13 covers in that character. I’ve had many circumstances where I’ve had to throw away a 4 or 5 Star card because I couldn’t use it. It’s enraging considering these are rare pulls. The ability to use these duplicate cards towards another color once you’ve hit 5 covers in a single color would be great. There are also times when I have an issue with the game. Getting a generic response from customer service is not the best treatment of customers, especially when it doesn’t solve the issue.
I’ve been playing this game for awhile now, and while I admit that I often find certain things about it frustrating, this game can very easily be played and enjoyed for free with no ads interrupting. Yes, it can be hard getting started but thats part of what makes it fun, it continues to challenge you and come out with new content regularly. I will say that finding the covers you need becomes increasingly difficult with the number of variations on the same characters and the more stars a character has the more difficult it is to get more than one cover for them. I recommend to new players that you stick with the characters your getting covers for in the beginning because those dark avengers covers will advance quickly to powerful characters. Something I did not realize at the time. The game also gives you a ton of ISO which as you advance starts stacking up in a ridiculous way because you cant use it for much of anything. I’m not a huge fan of the new thing you can equip to characters as I don’t find them to be very valuable but truthfully if you just want to enjoy a game and have fun then this is a great game for you.
So the plus side is you dont have to pay for anything to get where you need to go in the game. You play through missions for characters, their covers for skills and to upgrade them, currency to level, etc. But eventually, you hit a cap of just a few characters before you even finish the prologue. At that point, you will ALWAYS be struggling between what characters to keep and what to toss because ALL your gold coins need to be going to extra slots and even then, you will never have enough slots for the amount of characters you get. So plus, always getting characters but also a fail in that the coins you have to grind for and you will never have enough. I HIGHLY recommend dropping money on the VIP (even if just once), it was unplayable for me otherwise. It gives you a bunch of coins that you can dump into slots so you have a good roster to work with. Plus the extra rewards dont hurt. This is also why i give it 3star, because it is HIGHLY difficult without that extra push. But not unplayable. If i had to recommend anything, im surprised we cant save team setups yet and, as a comic book collector myself, it would be nice to have a collection we could see of all the covers we had because you have to throw away a lot that arent as good as others. Maybe rather than throw away, toss in a binder and get a reward for completing the set?
I know developers need to get paid, but in the long run it is not worth it to pay in this game, with one exception. This game is constantly be updated with new content, which sounds good but is not due to the way you level up heroes. As the hero roster increases, it becomes more difficult to level up a character as the chances to get a hero card decreases. Also, they have this horrible leveling system that forces you to sell duplicate hero cards and give you basically nothing in return. And it’s made even worse due to the limited number of heroes you can have at any time and that duplicate heroes, which you may need later, expire. Regardless of how much you pay, you need to grind, a.k.a. Play the game over and over again just for a few rewards. It's not fun to play the same thing 4 times in a row, then time it just right to play 2-3 more times. Then there's the cheating. The AI gets insane chains, especially when it's losing or you are denying it a color it needs. And what’s even worse and where paying is worth it, if you pay a monthly fee, the AI cheats less. So you need to pay for the game to not cheat! If you still plan to play, go to Reddit for tips. And if you aren’t going to pay, remember that you have a long grind ahead of you, so make decisions for the long haul and avoid instant gratification. E.g. do not open any legendary cards until you are in the 3 to 4 star transition.
