After few days i can share my experience about this game :)
I really enjoy my time playing here, the community is good and friendly, but with low player base its normal, later when this game will be free to play and more people will join, it will be the same as every other game. But atm the community is really good, Developers are active, and playing with us too. Will talk about low player base later.
- The fight mechanics are similar to league of legends, but here you can't auto attack with A + left click, but besides that the spells and movement works the same.
EDIT: you can make attack move by pressing T. Thanks Ekko Tek :p
- Editing hero: its similar to LoL again, you can costumize your hero attributes, and make your own item build and use gear items to gain more good stats. It's like the mastery system in LoL, you gain +1 attribute point each time your player levels up. You will get some gear items from the chests you gain when you start, and later you have a chance to get other gear items as reward for first win of the day, or maybe you can get them for playing games too, not sure about that sofar i only got materials and Recibe for skin :)
I like the hero editing here, better than the mastery system in LoL.
-Crafting: you can craft skins, gear items, Lores from materials, you can get materials from daily first win of the day, and rewards after match.
EDIT 2015.01.03.: You can get random items by leveling up your "Virtue level", even have a chance to get Skins, recipies and the other cool stuffs :) This kinda an inspiration to be nice to others ( which should be a common thing ofc ), and play nicely :) But at this moment the community is nice and helpful anyway :)
Means you can get free skins and good stuffs without paying anything, but needs time :)
This is similar to Dota 2 stuff, but there you dont need to craft :) They are tradeable, so you can sell them on steam market, and get the ones you like :) They have different rarity: trash, common, uncommon, rare.
-Glyphs: these are like summoner spells in LoL, BUT you can choose them ingame, and they are different. They got 3 levels, and you can build one Glyph 2 different way :) This is a very good feature that i really like, more variety. And you can have 2 different Glyph spells.
-Itemization: there are a lot of items you can choose, all of them fine. Many situational items and basic ones you need.
-Ingame Quests: there are many ingame quests that gives your team money reward or other special buffs. They have very random sequence each match. They are very challenging especially when you play vs players :)
So teamwork is very important, just like in every other moba game :p
-Matchmaking: you can search for 2 matches at same time! this is a really cool feature, especially when the game will grow later :) finding a match will be very easy. At this moment it's not really effective, due to low player base, but it will be fine.
EDIT 2014.12.31.::::: Also new players don't have to worry about "veterans" will have advantage vs them, because they are higher level ( means more attribute points to spend ). When you get matched with a lower level, everyone gets reduced their attribute points to the same level as the lowest player have. This helps to make the game more balanced on stats :)
EDIT 2015.01.182:::: Since last patch the matchmaking has changed. Now you can search more than
2 matches at same time :)
So overall the game is really good as it's only beta / early access, only need some fixes, and increase the player base :)
Problem with low player base is, that we find matches a bit slowly. Many people searching for 5 v 5 games as primary, and 5 vs AI as secondary. And than there are few player who search for 1 v 1 and 2 v 2. So basicly this is the reason for long queues. I would suggest everyone just go search for 5 vs AI especially because there are many new players, they still need to learn ( me too ). And it would be much faster to get 5 players for a match, than 10. But oh well.. everyone got their freewill to do whatever they want :)
I am trying to make parties to go a fast 5 vs AI, so if you feel like to practicing like that, add me on steam and we can play together.
EDIT 2015.01.03: Player base growing slowly, so im able to get in 5 v 5s matches kinda faster than before. So worth going 5 v 5 as primary, and secondary 5 vs AI or whatever you like to :)
But still recommending the vs AI game mode for beginners to practice some matches :)
I would recommend this game to every moba lovers, Dota 2, LoL doesn't matter both player can feel comfortable here.
There are many key giveaways for this game on different sites, just search for it, and try this game out. Or if you feel like to donate go for it, the game is not that expensive anyway, and i would say it's worth :)
If any newcomer want's to try and got questions, add me on steam and i will try to help if i can. And we can play together practice against AI.
I am also streaming the game when i got time ( because im working ) and playing it. You can find me at http://www.twitch.tv/azta1212
EDIT 2015.01.07.: The player base has doubled since i started to play, so finding matches are way faster now :)
Got some keys to giveaway, if you want to try the game. Add me as friend, and i will help you as much as i can :)
EDIT::: On January of 13 there was a new patch. Here you can read the patch notes:http://steamcommunity.com/app/251970/discussions/7/616198900649117977/
