If you want a profound turn based Hex game, go for other games. If you want good mmo experience, go for whatever others.reasons below.
Pros (in sum, its real F2P )
+ can unlock all units and skill without spending a dollar. Real F2P.
+ can unlock all units and skill in 20 hours.
+ Devs are active.(however they can't fix the core problems of the game.)
Cons( in sum: unbalanced, lack of community mechanics, no goal of playing)
units between factions unbalanced, causing players numbers between factions ridiculous unbalanced.game mechanics make player who got first move ALWAYS win in PvP and Devs do nothing to fix it.instead of competeing each other, all players do is Grinding PvE against suck AI.
- Poor community experience.
bad community interface. lack of interaction with player inside or ouside the faction. I joined a battlegroup (guid), then that's all. guild don't have any function, either. Faction Leader and Battlegroup leader can't organize or moblize or lead their members, either can't do nothing to the rogue players. All he can do is text with players.
- No Goal, No Reward. No Purpose.
It has a real world map.The faction I joined wipe out entire enemy faction except one province(due to game rule, you can not wipe out other fatctions totally), then we got nothing. Even you conquer whole world map, it WON'T change your game experience.vice versa. all we can do is wait enemy retake their land and play endless PvE. it DOES have some objective to achieve for each faction in each few days, but reward is tiny.
