Ratings and Reviews
Challenging, but still fun
Stormbound is a very well-made game that mixes board game and deck-building strategies to create a balanced and exciting online strategy game. A wide selection of cards enables a player to build a deck based upon their personal playing styles, and the limit on how many cards can be in you deck forces you to choose wisely.
No system is perfect, however. Slight problems in the balancing of the game do exist. Some people complain that the marching system is unfair and that some people use “money decks” to cheat their way to the top. I personally think that Ironclad and Dragon decks need to be a little less powerful. However, the developers are very good about dealing with these issues. “Money decks” are hard to assemble, because nearly all card acquisition is randomized. Frequent card-balancing patches are made. Players are divided into ranks depending on their standings in pvp, so you aren’t likely to face many people that are out of your league (when you do, it’s probably just because someone didn’t play for a long time and hasn’t recovered from the rank reset yet).
There are going to be games you lose horribly, but that’s no reason to quit or decide not to download this game. If you lose all the time, revise your deck. Despite what other reviews will tell you, I have found that a well put together deck and a good strategy can win even the toughest of battles.
This is a simplistic but yet deep, thrilling, and beautiful game. It’s easy to pickup and understand, with a starting deck for you so you don’t feel overwhelmed from the beginning. This game has a culmination of very unique cards from each of the 4 different factions, as well as the neutral faction. You’re allowed to make a deck with neutral cards, and from one specific faction. I love this because it helps to balance out each faction so you can’t have too many great cards. And ugh the art in this game is outstanding! Beautifully designed cards and animations for every unit, and sounds effects. Also different faction stages that have their own sound effects! At times there may seem to be different cards that may be a little over/under powered, but with more playing time you learn and master how to use certain cards and decks which make this game all the better. A couple things that I would like added into this game bluntly would be tournaments that you can set and bid different in game currencies, guilds/clans possibly to help you get some friends and just simply talk about Stormbound, and more ways to earn in game currency. Overall, I highly recommend this game as it is very fun and you can play with friends, and it is constantly being updated with balances and additions to keep the game fresh and fun!
(BROKEN) Broken Earth Drakes
Been playing for 2 years now and I must say this game is my favorite card game of all time. Even better than Magic the Gathering and Clash Royale and I’ve played both for much longer than this one. I appreciate all the balances and updates made to this game it keeps it fresh, appealing, and still fun. But over the past few months I’ve had to deal with a literal beast that I cannot get over and that is the Broken Earth Drakes card introduced sometime last year. The card is placed in a deck that already specializes in board wipes and mana ramp so to put such a cheap destructive creature that has no weaknesses or downsides within the Pact is mind-boggeling. I find it to be extremely overwhelming when dealing with Winter Pact as is, because of the slow monotonous play style that it wields, adding a card that wipes the entire enemy board for little to no mana in this mana heavy deck is pretty frustrating. Partnering it with a dragon-centric deck is pretty much game over for the opponent and I believe more than half of my opposition has already figured that out. I hope you take into consideration my comments on this card and look into better balances for it later on but until then I’ll try my best to work around it. Anyways there’s my two cents thank you for this phenomenal game, keep up the good work.
