Ratings and Reviews
Great for F2P/C2P. Ads are optional!
The review by Slawguhy is true (game is not ptw). He said it's a slow crawl and meant to be an adventure you play for months/years. This is absolutely true. I've been playing for about 4.5 years now. And while i have spent money here and there, it's not necessary. One thing I've learned over the years is that spending is a gamble similar to winning the lottery (you have a 1.3% chance of pulling legendary heroes in almost every event and theme). But there is a building you get much later in the game that can produce these heroes for free (albeit, also a low chance of getting what you want or need). The benefit of this is that it offers A LOT of variety in PvP and PvE play. If everyone got so the good heroes all the time, everyone would have the same teams. One AMAZING thing about this game that i can't say about many other games is that the ads are completely optional. There are two areas that give ads. One gives random loot and the other gives random low level heroes and troops in exchange for watching. So they're not just optional, they're not necessary for gameplay. You can literally play this game for years without having to pay a dime or watch a single ad! I've never played a mobile game as long as i have played this one. The graphics are great, bugs are infrequent (almost never encounter), it's a lot of fun! Definitely give it a try and see for yourself.
The reviews on here that state you have to “pay to win” and “never guaranteed you do win when you spend x amount” are Bogus claims. Playing this game is a marathon, not a dAsh to the finish. It’s team building; material farming adventure that takes months to get every character and item your so desperately wanting. The Months it takes to lever characters, upgrade buildings, play through the story and quests takes time and patience. You can spend money to get the things your so desperately wanting now with odd/chances against you OR you can just play the game and wait for the quest and tournaments to give you the items your wanting(takes time)
What your goals in the gameplay can also differ. So any reviews telling you about bad character/teams or not getting them. Those people know they spend money with odd slim and change with every season. and spending money is no guarantee to any item due to the lottery/change type of buying. They tell you the % of chance to get certain items/
If your looking for a game you can dig into, put in the time needed to make it the team and build it have patience because they give you gem to spend, they give you many items to build you characters. Give this game the your time it deserves before giving it a review.
Used to be a solid game
This game has progressively gotten worse and worse. I one point I would had said you can play the game and be pretty successful without paying. Anymore , however, they have dialed way back on mats so if you’re lucky enough to get five star hero’s you won’t get the mats to lvl them. I have multiple five stars that I’ve had for YEARS and can’t get enough mats to lvl them all the way up. Of coarse you can pay $30+ bucks to be able to get the mats to do 1 hero if you have the other mats to do so, spoiler, you won’t unless you neglect every other hero until you pay for your mats. Now I couldn’t always say this , they wouldn’t keep up exactly , but you could get through a few five star hero’s. If you stayed active on the game. I would reward them by buying gems to get hero’s at 30 bucks a pop, for a ten pull, and didn’t flinch, now unless you buy everything you will not be successful at this game. The tile drops have gotten to be crap too. You have a team that is solid…. Well they just won’t give you the tiles to win, so all you end up doing is charging up the other teams hero’s and get frustrated as you see them pick one hero off after another. One week your entire alliance does well (in wars) with descent boards, the next nothing but poo. They claim it’s random drops I STRONGLY disagree. This game has done nothing but become a money pit and a frustration. Always figured games were to be fun and relaxing this one breaks that mold 10 fold.
