Best card strategy game
This is my favorite card strategy game for several reasons. There are different maps. All maps follow the same basic format, and the differences are subtle, but they still add a lot of strategy to the game. There are also generals each player can select. This adds a ton of extra strategy. Knowing your opponent's general is key to victory. The game is balanced well. There are top 100 players using semi-rare generals instead of heroic (super rare) generals just because they like the strategy of the more common ones better. New players have access to those. Due to the excellent balance, this game can be played for free and be a lot of fun. Paying will help advance a player faster, but it isn't required. I also love the timer when a match goes into over time. The timer gently damages all towers every few seconds. So if you're ahead when overtime starts, it matters. Also prevents games from dragging out.
Flaws of this game are limited alliance benefits. There is a weekly alliance chest, and that's all. But, it goes by chests opened, so this negates the reason to lower medals and play lower players for crowns, as in other games, which is nice. The game is still fairly new. They need to add another arena for high level players.
Anyway, I'm a top 100 player, and I hope you come to enjoy this game as much as I do.
Rank ~40 in the US’s review
Pay to compete is very apparent once you get high in the ladder. I’m currently around rank 40 in the US and I’m at a point where I ONLY face people above my level. (I’m one of the few level 9s at or near the top and most people I face are level 11) The card level difference makes a great deal, especially when their air support kills your tactical squad and your air support doesn’t kill theirs. And a $100 special offer? Please... just begging for money with that. And many people will buy it too. The game itself is great though. There’s a MAJOR bug in Iwa Jima where if you place a tiger tank (may work with the other tank as well) in a certain area on the left side of the map, it’ll get stuck on the wall. This has cost me a few games so far... There are a few minor bugs as well; nothing else that serious. The game has some great features Clash Royale doesn’t include, such as the sudden death tower self-destruction bit. No more pesky ties where the enemy’s tower was at only 10 hp! Having many generals to choose from is also great. This adds much more diversity and strategy into decks. If you’ve made it this far, I’m surprised you got through my negativity in the beginning. It’s a great game, but it’s pay to win if you want to climb high in the ladder.
Worst Clash Royale Rip-off Ever
By Awesome E dude
This is easily the worst Clash ROYALE rip-off I’ve ever seen. The art, animations, and sounds are good. The game has its own style on what would normally be a gritty topic (WWII & Vietnam), and I love it. The game on paper is great. But the biggest thing this game needs to change is its pay-to-win aspect. Clash Royale is sort-of pay-to-win, but the game is based off of skill for the most part. This game not only lets you pay for gems, coins, and loot boxes, but it also lets you buy a membership that automatically gives the user overpowered perks, like making all of their card levels one more level than they would normally be. How much is this membership you ask? Oh, I don’t know, how about ONE-HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR. An absolutely ridiculous price for a mobile game. I’d like to see someone who hasn’t bought anything try and progress, when everyone else decided to fork over one-hundred dollars for this piece of garbage. If I would want to spend one-hundred dollars on a mobile game, I’d go with Clash Royale over this game any day. Money makes the world go round, but money is also what makes games like these broken and unbalanced. I don’t recommend playing this game for more than the first few arenas if you feel obligated. Past that, you’re only going to run into pay-to-win players. Once more, I do not recommend this game.
The fix is in....
So I started off loving this game and decided to pay for a few upgrades.I was winning (and loosing) the win/ loss ratio wasn’t bad. However I noticed that I started loosing to players with lower level cards than I had. I mean they would cut through my troops like they weren’t even there. I watched replays and I could see the way the other players lower level cards was cutting down my higher level cards. In other games I had played the same card/ combos against those same cards I would have no problem. It seemed at times like I was playing in a game where the other player was already decided the winner from the get go. During these games the other team was spawning better card combos at a faster pace than I was. After 3-5 crushing defeats in a row I would win a few. Then I would play a few and I would dominate crushing people at the same level. Then again I would get destroyed 4 or 5 games in a row sometimes against the same type of deck that I had just dominated. This is when I got rid of the game. It seemed like I was taking 1 step forwards and 2 steps back a lot. I decided the game would be a money pit so I had enough. At least Clash Royale gives out free legendary chests etc.... this game gives you nothing in return except crappy common and a rare card here and there. You need to pay to compete.
So this game is kinda fun early on. The mechanics work pretty well, and it’s a decent concept. Then, after you’ve been playing for a couple months the crap compounds. They haven’t updated the game in at least a year. It takes months to upgrade just 1 of your 8 units. The matchmaking is horrible, due to either poor AI or a lack of players - after seeing the opponent and map you know who will win before the contest even begins. I’m sorry, did you want all the loot from your win? Well, then you’ll have to watch this 30 second ad for a game where you shoot one ball at other balls. And then there is the most annoying thing about the game: the players. For reasons that elude me, the makers decided there shouldn’t be a player-to-player chat, and instead opted for a selection of pre-fab animations that players can use. Often you’ll find yourself in a match where the opponent has you overwhelmed, and they will repeatedly use the laughter or crying animation as fast as they can push it. So while you’re getting destroyed, some knob will make this annoying laughter animation 50+ times in the last 30 seconds, just to be annoying.
If that sounds like a fun time, then go ahead and download this steaming pile of cow dung.
ITS FUN BUT ANNOYING
By Dr evil.
I rarely write reviews, but this game has so much potential, but it gets ruined by the glitches. When you open crates in the game, they sometimes give a reward that says “free gift” and it makes you watch a video for the reward. Sometimes it works, BUT SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T AND THE AD DOESN'T PLAY AND YOU DON’T GET THAT REWARD AND THE OTHER STUFF IN THE CRATE. After waiting three hours for a single crate or 8 or however many, it’s frustrating when this happens. The match making can be a bit messed up too... you can be level 4 and get paired with a level 9 player that has immensely greater units/troops than you (happens to me maaaany times). What happens then is you lose trophies and then you move down the arenas until you get lucky enough to match someone YOUR OWN level. Don’t get me wrong, this game intrigued me more than clash royale for its different style and unique troops that compliment each general and players play-style. It adds more of a strategy essence and more ways matches can play out. I hope developers see this to help the players play their game by fixing some tiny things in this amazing game!!
Love and hate
I love the game yet I hate it because win I’m on a winning streak here comes somebody who beats me doesn’t hurt too much then you play another one and they beat you now you’re starting to get a little angry you play a third one and they beat you now you’re really feeling mad and then you play again and they beat you and you’re like oh my look what and then you play again and they beat you and now you’re so angry and you’re so tired of this losing and you play again and they beat you and you’re like oh my goodness what am I gonna do to win and then you play again and you get beat and you’re like a-ha I can’t play this game anymore I hate it.. then you decide to play one more and you bust through and you win... sweet victory ahwwwwwww! So yeah I love the game but I also hate it I love winning but hate absolutely despise losing...:-)
To start I am tired of the game shutting down when I start the app and the click store, start a war or basically any new page. The war replays haven’t been working for over a week now. I would re-download the game however you don’t make Game Center easy. Lastly who is the freaking genius that thought it was a good idea to have to scroll down to help allies and reset your own. The March ups also need help. The difference in 300 trophies is big change on levels, have more levels or have your match ups stay within 200 trophies. I went 10 straight games with people over that level 12’s while I am a 9. I have to waste my time until a get a more even match up. I now work to stay low at my trophy level so that I have a higher chance of not wasting my time with higher levels. Takes the fun out of the game tie work hard for even matches.
The game is a different take on Clash Royal that is fun and takes strategy and game play to win, I love that. I would give this game a 5 if you fixed and or adjusted the above mentioned.
It’s now weeks after posting the original and still can’t play a war replay and app shuts down clicking on anything randomly anytime.
Hit or Miss
I’ve been playing this game for some time now, it’s fun and helps time pass when I’m bored. I’ve spent money on it a couple of times as well (didn’t make much of a difference) just to get faster upgrades. I will say the Bots are way more powered up than they should be, I get it finding a match with a live person all the time can be difficult but take it easy with the Bots OP levels. I’m currently a level 10 in this game, that means nothing to the Bots lol. If you Face Bots 6 marches in a row be prepared to go 1-5. Once you hit the 1800 badge points make you’ll get access to the final base. It doesn’t go any further than that with new locations. You’ll be knocked down from that level time and time again by Bots, attempting to make you pay more to try and upgrade to get back to that last stage. At this point I play just to waste time, there’s no real goal any longer that I know there’s nothing new past 1800 points. Okay game for passing time but can be a bit frustrating losing 9 out of 10 matches to Bots because there’s no live players available for matches.
Fun game, but not balanced
Fun game to kill time, but once you reach around 2400 medals you cannot progress much more bc you’ll often be matched up with players that have much higher level cards than you. You can lose one match and lose as many medals as it took you to make in 3 wins, and you only get like 10 gold per win where everything takes over 10,000 gold to level cards towards the mid range. I’m pretty sure people will purposely tank their medal standings so they can play against players that have units 3-4 levels under them which kind of ruins it. I’ve been stuck at this for months and it takes so long to accumulate cards and gold to level up that you have to pay crazy amounts of money, $5/week subscription for an iPhone game, to level yourself up to compete or spend years trying to catch up to players. Would be a lot more fun if the cards didn’t have levels and you actually had to use skill to win instead of overcoming bases and units with thousands of more health points than your own.
