Fun to start , sad overall


After a year + of playing I am thinking of giving this up. I love hockey I love and breath hockey. However, when I save 500 k of coins waiting for one card or one team card to come out then 95% of the time don’t get it.... it starts to get frustrating. You rarely get cards you want , even if you save up. You can pay to get a better chance but it gets costly fast. Oh there are also diamond only packs (pay only) to get them.

I rather pay initially for this app and get to enjoy it more , or have a 5 dollar a month thing even to make it both affordable, fun, and still supports a company . You will feel like you get something to start form the game then it just stops. No more progression without real money and even then you may not get what you want.

After so much time invested until they allow you to expand your collection with a chance of getting things some more , then I will not be investing in this app anymore ... I am sorry I gave it over a year ...

Need more coins


Not going to lie I absolutely love this app and from the moment I downloaded I have been obsessed with it. But with the new update there isn’t any good offers to complete so it is near impossible to get more coins. Either there needs to be more offers that are able to be completed AND work or implement a rewards system for people that continuously go on the app daily instead of just 10,000 a day maybe more and more each day the user goes on the app. Overall it is a good app there just needs to be an option where users can get more coins.

Possibly the worst app of all-time.


More bugs than you can count! Unimaginative designs that looked rushed to make money quickly instead of being well thought out. Confusing 2 currency system that seems to favor only Topps bank account. To get the best cards you need to spend 100s or even 1000s and even then these cards aren’t worth it for a physical version, and yet these are just digital cards! Support requests often take weeks! Bugs that existed in the beginning still exist but instead of fixing them like everyone asks for, they redesign the look of the app. No rhyme or reason to card releases. They zig when everyone else is zagging, and not in the good way! To sum it all up, it’s just plain awful!
