• No Chat •
Why.... oh why, is there no chat. Let me just say that it is completely unreasonable, for a game that requires teemwork, to not have chat.
There will be times when you find yoursefl hitting the "enter" key, even though you know that it doesn't work. This is most evident when one of your teammates walks off alone to fight the enemy by himself. You REALLY want to tell him not to go in, or to wait up, but little can be done.
Alerts? Ain't nobody got time for that.
• Matchmaking •
Quite simply, you pick your preferred character then que up to get matched with two others.
◘ Well whats wrong with that?
- Random people.
◘ Isn't that the point?
-Yes, but they do it without a lobby system.
Typically you get matched with your teammates and opponents. Then you go to the game lobby where you would select your character, masteries and such. M̶a̶y̶b̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶t̶e̶a̶m̶m̶a̶t̶e̶s̶.̶
Then the game would start and you would go from there.
The way they do it in this game is you pick your character first. Then your just throne into a game with whoever. And since you pick you character beforehand, unless your with 2 friends, your team composition can be anything. Your completly at the mercy of the draw.
P1: Wow what a nice team comp.
P2: We got 3 tanks....
P1: No us, the other guys.
Im guessing thats what a conversation would look like, if there was chat. Too bad we'll never know.
• Other •
Other stuff thats not so important, but still notable.
Well know to anyone whos F2P. Gotta get that "Valor" to get them champs. Some say pvp others co-op vs a.i. So I played some games in both and averaged them to see which was better.
The results are as follows:
► PVP - 8 min 37 sec. - 297 valor/xp avg.
►Co-op - 4 min 30 sec - 282 valor/xp avg.
While pvp yeilds higher rewards, co-op get them faster. With a competent team you can get 2-3 min victories.
When I hear "Speed Moba" I think of fast moving/combat gameplay. "The map", cause I've only seen one, is very small. So apparently to make up for this, they made the characters slow. Its like running though water, and if you walk throught the water in game its like walking through mud. Dodging projectiles is somewhat akward, especially with some of the hit detection on some of these attacks.
This may be nit-picky but "Worlds First" Speed moba? Bloodlines Champions has quick games, its a moba too.
▬ Its an ok game, but with no chat or pre-game lobby you probably won't be putting any real time into this. Yeah the games are short but the gameplay is a little too slow to my liking. It does alright considering its used to be a phone game. But if your going from Phone to Computer you gotta make changes.
