So close to being great.

I love this game and I play everyday. But there are a few tweaks that annoy me enough TJ close the game down. Such as when you get a shot and don’t score, their D get all their health back. But when they shoot on you and you make a save, you still are stuck with minimal health. Also Boosted players. It makes it so difficult to even advance forward when the other team has boosted players, especially those that are cherry pickers and 2x power.

Great game because hockey

Play like Marvel Puzzle Quest with hockey flair. No need to actually spend money on a free game too. That gold is super valuable perhaps more so than the diamonds for leveling players up.

Devs how about a forum a place for us to chat about strategies, tips and tricks, and line combos please? I’ve scoured the Internet for a group or forum of folks that play, but clearly it’s pretty niche title. Thanks for all the cosmetic updates from the original launch and the updated players and the like. Appreciate the new leagues I was stuck playing the same for months and quit playing for quite a few months and just returned back. It’s good to be play again with some progression.

Keep up the work dudes!

Fun: 5, Infrastructure: 1. Good for about 50 games.

The game is incredibly fun until its economy skates headfirst into the boards.

If you play games too quickly, you don’t get ‘lockers’ while they’re still easy to get. You end up not having enough ‘gold’ to upgrade your players.

Subsequently, you encounter prohibitively challenging opponents and need to relegate your play to daily check-ins to grind wait timers.

Watching ads allows you to speed up wait timers... until you run out of ads. There’s a hidden limit on ads, too.

TL;DR brilliant game, nightmarish structure.

Hey, devs/publishers:

LOL @ the idea that you think you can convince me to spend money by actively, knowingly making your game fall short of its potential... IF YOU ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT GAMING AND GAMERS, reduce the wait timers, add more locker slots, etc. Gamers don’t support companies that they perceive to be cynical, prioritizing money over all else.

The game’s a legit 5 if you fix its issues. Right now it’s functionally a 3, all things considered, but I’m rating it a 2 to make a point (and to improve the odds of you reading this review).
