Tali:

Taeyang and Tali were the son and daughter of a powerful industry magnate who had founded the Four Stars Trading Company, who joined the INCquisition to bring back order to the chaos that reigned after the AEther wars. Where her brother happily devoted himself to the cause, her free-spirited and chaotic nature riled against the INC's rigid structure and elitist approach. Naturally drawn to the free life of the Air Pirates, she joined them after stealing the latest top-secret prototype weapon from her father's lab - a new device designed to harness Æther residue from sources the device is attuned to. This allows her to empower her attacks, drawing additional strength from her fellow Pirates!

Menus and loading screens are filled with entertaining artwork that adds to the vast steampunk world that Cliffhanger Productions has built, especially each champion’s avatar portrait along with their backstories. [...]offering a different experience to those looking for something that stands out within the growing genre of battle arenas. Ærena: Clash of Champions is definitely worth checking out”

this game is amazing.
i dont like dota (really tried hard to like it, i love graphics and the competition of it, but gameplay never attracted me)

in the other hand i just love chess and few cardgames and in this game i found the perfect balance between them all.
real money is an issue for many people, but this game can be perfectly fun without expend a penny. although devs and game totally deserve any support from player, being by paying or by spreading the word.

but some (young)people really believe games comes out of nothing. they will only realize people have to eat and drink beer, when their momies stop feeding them

really fun game

In Aerena you use a team of 3 characters to destroy the enemy ship in turn based combat. To do so, you can either attack the ship directly or kill the opponents characters which deals damage to the ship as well. When a character dies, the player can either let it respawn or pick a different champion to replace him in battle.
Each chracter has two skills that require some kind of mana to use.

While at first the maps look really small and simple, there are a lot of skills that allow to interact with the map.
Positioning your characters and planning your next move are very important for the game. Losing characters allows you to replace them with others, that work better in that situation. This allows you to come back even if you fall behind early.

Since the game is free to play it obviously got a cash shop. Getting all the characters you want (for free) will take some time. If you plan on reaching the highest ranks in the ladder, you either need to grind up on the daily quests or pay some money. Early on paying players got an advantage over free users, but i would not go as far as saying the game is pay2win. I guess the right therm here is pay2progress, as paying allows you access to everything quuite fast.

So in the end Aerena is a solid strategie game, that offers a lot of fun for free.

I'm finding it very fun to figure out strategies for this game. I enjoy the RNG luck element built into the gameplay. It keeps the game spicy. I also enjoy playing against so many different human opponents at all levels and having reoccuring match ups against the familiar opponents of the leagues (1 server.) It's tough to grind for new champions and ships, but, it can be done in a free-to-play fashion.

An excellent turnbased game, the matches are quick and packed with tons of action. The way leveling up is designed makes you feel like a real manager bringing his team up in a league. Definitley worth the time for any strategy game fan.

To be honest, this isn't really a game I enjoyed but the point of a review it to review it, so I'll do just that.
~~Ærena is a raher steampunk like game but it's does have the futuristic point of view due to such advancements in technology. Besides that, it's gameplay is quite clean as long as you have a respectable Desktop/PC and put the right requirements for it as such. It's pretty fun in the beginning but sometime it does lag and cause a lose of a turn which is quite annyoing but all games have that I suppose. In any case, I think there could be a few more chracters, ships, shells and missions/challenges. This would make the game even more interesting than it is. Also, my first time playing, I accidently bought a character that was already given to me which caused me to lose that amount of money for no reason. I don't know if that's a bug but if it isn't, at least give people that warning. All-in-all, it an interesting game that "I" am not particularly interested in. I would reccomend you at least try it once before judging it based off my opinion.

The game has changed a lot since I first tried it earlier in the year-- so far the changes appear to all be in a good direction. The game is fun for the most part, but I wish I could share the same character on my PC and on Android. (If that is possible it doesn't appear obvious how to do it)

Ærena: Clash of Champions isn't your standard turn-based tactical game. Ærena places you directly into the battle for Æther--there's no slow start--things go BANG and BOOM right from the beginning!

If you can, imagine a system similar to League of Legends, where you earn points and use those points to purchase new champions. This is the system employed by Ærena and it does a good job of keeping players engaged.

Not only is the in-game currency/point system similar to League of Legends, but the champions have a similar feel, which is awesome because in most turn-based tactical games you don't command CHAMPIONS but rather generic units. In Ærena, the champions have beautiful, vibrant rendering and their abilities are dynamic unlike the generic abilities units have in most turn-based tactical games.

Ærena is a 100% PvP game, which I love! You can practice with the AI but that gets old, its human competition that drives this game! Similar to other ELO/RP based PvP games, you can rank up from Bronze to Æther Master. The average match takes about 10-15 minutes so this game will not consume your life unless you choose.

Since I purchased this game (Alpha) I've seen numerous updates. The devs are constantly adding new content and they stay in close contact with the player-base. Recently, players voted on a Top-10 list of 'Wanted Features.' The devs are now working diligently to apply as many of the requested features as possible.

Recently a new patch was released. As with most games, a new patch usually means a couple small problems, from which this game is not immune. However, the devs worked hard and fast to eliminate those problems so the community could once again enjoy the game. In fact, my account glitched out after the last patch and one of the devs personally responded to my request for help. He logged into the game and fixed my problem! Talk about service--this is a FTP game!

I'm not sure what more I can say to entice you to play other than, "If you don't try Ærena: Clash of Champions, you're missing a diamond in the rough" (although this game is beautifully polished).

Come find me in the Ærena. I'm on my way to Æther Master. I'll see you there!

A good addition to the slim turn-based world - if you like it hardcore. Although matches are short and it's pretty easy to get into it's quite a challenge, especially once you hit the more seasoned PvP players.
