Game can b fun at times u do really have to spend cash on the bucks and gold. Each time u get a player hurt price to fix goes up 100. U only gain a max of 150 per fight. After ur 3rd injury to same player ur up to 300 gold to heal. Thats not bad right? Wrong ur gold increase is horrible. By 5th time hurt ull need 4 matches to heal him. Problem is u can get multiple hurt at same time. U will run out of gold quick this is how this game tries to make u buy stuff. In ur quest to earn more gold n heal ur players u get even more injured making u have to switch out players n killing team rating while playing against ppl who well overmatch u. U will also lose to horrible teams. My team is 86 overall its not the best but i cant count how many times my team loses to a 20-30 rated team n i dont even mean close loss i mean a blow out. There are alot this app needs to fix like dropping healing prices n not putting u against 105 rated teams 8/10 times. Losses ull gain 1 gold per kill n thats it which maxes at 40. Put this all together its a horrible app. Only reason i give it 2 star n not a 1 is the watch battle n the when not extremely over matched in tourneys u can win good bucks to by cards but only top 3. I dont recommend spending cuz ull lose obvious wins but u will enjoy watching the battles although the troops are stupid in stopping random times for no reason.

Very Good Game

Its epic, im not gonna lie. It is really good game once you become a strong player, however from the images i downloaded it thinking it was an fps like call of duty or battlefield. It is however very entraining to watch your squad play, even though it is animated and not you actually playing. The thing that makes me angry is that if I was actually playing as my squad, I would use way different techniques than what my team uses. Making it fps would make the player feel more into it because you dont only manage your squad which is great to choose your team, but you also get the chance to control them and use your own methods of fighting. Since I always end up screaming at the screen things like "go there you idiot" or "shoot!!".

So if you want to improve it you can have a system like you choose a player at the beginning of a match, and for the rest of the match you get to play as the character you chose, while the rest of your team is AI.

Great Game, Needs Improvements

The game is awesome, I'm not gonna lie. You can watch your squad battle others (fun to do up until the point you start screaming at your squad to go towards the objective), use tactics to improve your effectiveness, and there's a lot of cards to collect to improve you're squad.

HOWEVER, the main quarrel I have with this games is the matchmaking. They aren't really matching you as the name implies, they're just putting you up against a random person within a broad range of ratings. You will face people 20+ above you and 20+ below you. To win calculate wins and losses, they just go by a probability calculation. You can have a 95% chance of victory and still lose horribly. And if you're unfortunate enough like I was, you're going to get paired with an all-elite team while you only have a few bronze and silver soldiers.
