Ok, so, absolute first impressions, in that I've only had about 80 minutes with the game at this point. Game mechanics, very nicely thought out and easy to learn, well-taught by the tutorial, which does a good job of introducing each concept. There's no real questions left unanswered, at least none that I can think of anyway. The way everything works is interesting and creative, and it seems there's alot of depth here. The card design and variety is excellent so far, even at early levels, and the artwork on them (and art for the game as a whole) is also good. Nice, easy interface. I'm also liking that it looks like this game is going to have plenty of challenge to it. Heck, I did a level 2 adventure, something like a wizard's house I think it was, and the boss golem at the end nearly ate my team, with his constant pummeling and high armor. Won without losing anyone (barely), which was very satisfying. If the game keeps up a high level of challenge like that, then it has my attention, as I generally need a high level of challenge in any game to retain interest. Aint tried multiplayer as I am not far enough yet, so I cant speak on that. And as for the free2play bit, I really have no issues with throwing some money at the game... I still remember an era when you had to BUY each game, you know, with money, and I never hit a point of having that "entitlement" attitude that some have. Most of the time I have no practical spending limit, so if I'm enjoying it I'll likely lob cash at it at random intervals. Bought the starter pack immediately. As a fan of strategy games, and TCGs (including Magic, of course), this is right up my alley. Very glad I found this. Cant wait to see where you go with it from here.
