People downvoting it because of p2w content , do not either know how to play , or have not played the game at all , i am 12 hours in , and this game is fantastic !! Theres a bit of a grind , but the loot is satisfying , also the cash part of the in game currency that has to be bought with real money is entirely optional , its used for unbinding xp ( will be removed in next november update ) and buying booster packs( completely optional , and in game progression is balanced , so unless you want it too easy you dont NEED those packs ) . Character points used to buy new characters , takes time to accumulate , but it will take a while for you to reach level 20 ( highest ATM ) with your starter character anyways . Gear points , used to buy missing parts and consumables comes in tons , each game will net you about 1k-2k points easily .
There are 3 types of modes as of right now :-
1) Scout , the solo horde mode
2) Horde mode , the co-op vs AI mode
3) Scavenger , the Team PvP game
Scavenger games are kinda tough to find , takes 10-15 minutes sometimes , but horde games are usually found within 2-3 minutes .
Movement is not mouse based like DOTA , but WASD , mouse is only used for attacking . This game is kind of like if DOTA and Diablo had a child :P . The skills are all balanced , and the gameplay feels fresh , plus theres zombies ... you can never get bored from killing zombies XD !!!
Graphics wise , its good looking and optimization is good as well so it should be playable on low end rigs as well .
The maps IMO are too less atm , but since its in early access beta right now , im sure they will add in more maps later on
Really looking forward to the november upgrade !!
Definetely recommend this free little gem to anyone who like MOBA's .
---------------------AFTER PATCH EDIT-------------------------------
Horde mode has been completely replaced by Crossroads now , and scout missions have been replaced by a sort of singleplayer tutorial ..
Crossroads games take place in a big map(like scavenger maps) , and every time you are assigned different randomly generated missions , and your performance is graded by Gold/Silver/Bronze stars .
You can also fail these missions , which will result in less score and supplies , therefore giving less loot at the end .
Well the new crossroads mode certainly adds more replayability to a certain degree , however i think its too unbalanced ..
Sometimes its too easy , but sometimes it too difficult !!
And by too difficult i mean 3 mega rams charging at you while spitters throw their venom around !!
The rewards have been bumped up by quite a lot as well , although im still finding less variety in blueprint drops ...
Also , i cannot find a single Scavenger game anymore , both in the EU as well as the NA region , i do not know whether this is happening to everyone or is mainly affecting SEA users .
Hope they fix these issues up real soon !! :(
And Horde mode should be back as well , Crossroads should instead replace the Heroic Horde mode.
Also I dont know whether the devs read these reviews , but a sort of arena mode would be kinda cool , where you face endless waves of zombies , and how long you survive decides the rewards you recieve .
