If you are thinking to begin to play this game I suggest read what I wrote.
>>>Before the recent update (heart of nightmares)

<Short Game Review>
Card game evaluation from 1 to 5

Mechanics 4/5
It has a grid on the field that is quite distinctive it has melee lane and shooter lane, gives 3 main types of creatures (shooters, melee and flyers along with hybrids) other than creatures there are fortunes and spells each have the ability to change the flow of the game. There are factions that all heroes of might and magic fans should be familiar with. Each faction has distinctive characteristics. There are also differnet spell schools which do determine your limits and openents battlefield tactics for example if you know they have fire spells you can assume they have fireball so you would avoid have any creatures near eachother. Mana is produced constantly by +1 each turn. It has heroes what is expected from might and magic. Life points that each hero has differs which makes it more ineteresting as it represents the idea that everything has a cost and to master the game you need to master your ability of making your deck efficient, which limits you in way since all decks will have a weakness, so you have to decide whether you want to invest more in rushing to victory or playing a steady slow game. Another thing that was intresting is that you can redraw your cards at the beginning, with consiquence which is weird to me, but I am staying neutral with it. I gave it a four because I feel like they could of added another lane, made it at least 5x5 instead of 4x4, so then it would five enough space to make it more strategic. What I mean by that there would be a middle row on both sides which would be harder to dominate since the center would be the most dangerious spot on the field. By making a small difference such as that it would increase the variaty of formations possible, not sticking to them would bring additional dangers to the player.

Flow/Economics 4.25/5
I was really happy with this game. Economics of it was most appreciated, since there was a daily reward that grows for 7 days and then is collected on the 7th day along with being awarded 10000 gold and 100 seals per level. There were also some achievements that rewarded in seals. Prices seemed reasonable to me except the fact that five towers set packs were not available for gold, which didn't make sense to me. If you look pass that then everything else is accessible each level as you go on (except the fice towers they are only accesible later when you have enough seals) cards in the game at a reasonable pace. I liked the fact that they have a sacrafice pit to recycle cards in a way but you need a lot to do that. Another thing that it makes it flow more is that there are such things as wild cards which you can use for getting specific cards in the altar of wishes, but first you hace to unlock them though by buying packs. It's a 4.25 because I think each set of cards should be accessible with gold and only the boxes should be priced with seals as they are now. Only when the set is really new it should be priced with seals for a month and then it should change to the ordinary price as the other packs.

Aestetics 4.25/5
It's organized each faction has it's own field look, quality pictures on the cards, nice log in menu background. There are also alternate art for some cards. The flying creatures move up and down, there is some other animation. I cannot give it a five though, because that would mean there is no room for improovements to be made. The aim of each card game should be to become more lively and more animated, so there would be movement and with it comes character of each creature. Everyone wants to see their creatures come to life and all spells become animated. I think even basic animations would be a start like one for each type of spell I guess. When thinking about makes you think about the ability to change the whole field and that change gives certain effects.

Story 1/5
I think there is something written on those 13 quests. I think it needs some story each hero at least to add more depth to the game. More quests some short animations or at least pcitures with writing on it or descriptions on cards.

Total: 14/20 I would recomment this game to all people that like card games and strategy.
<<<After the update

Mechanics 4/5
Nothing changed that would have a huge impact.

Flow/Economics 1/5
There seems to be no more daily rewards just some daily quests and no award for leveling, it almost seems that they don't want to reward their players really for playing the game. All prices changed to seals which disguisted me. I think it is also not fair as other people that are further ahead get the advantage as they had the ability to earn more seals. If you start just now you will never go ahead of other people. I was really disappointed by their choices that they made in this area as they also removed the achievements that awarded seals. I mean how will you feel knowing that there is no way to catch up with people unless you empty your wallets. Before it was player friendly now it's not. From play to win to pay to win.

Aestetics 4.5/5
They added some spell animation for each type and menu looks cool. Event animaiton different.

Story 1.5/5
They added more quests. There were description on every one of them.

Total: 12/20 I would not recommend this game anymore after the update.

Final remark: They ruined the game after the update. Changed it from play to win into pay to win. If you want to play you will have to pay. Before the update I liked the game so much that I chose to support it by buying some seals as a sign of my appreciation, but now I began to regret doing so. I am very disappointed.

-Thank you for taking the time to read.

When you first boot up this game for the first time your instantly impressed, the cards are full of beautiful art, the gameplay is fun and you really feel its a well made game. You also get a nice bundle of free in game currency to buy "Packs"....atleast YOU will think its alot...its only once you add a few new cards to your starter deck or throw out your cheap shop deck against players online that you see this is a heavy pay to win game. Your freebie or cheap cards will be torn to pieces against someone who threw money into the game shop and bought all the decks/packs to get those OP cards. Some of the pay factions not optional for the freeble's are so much more powerful too and you will sadly see yourself looking at the shop and tempted to spend just to level the playing field. All in all its a ok game, but due to the heavy pay to win theme I cant recommed it.

The game mechanics themselves are enjoyable, but the paywall is much too high. After playing for a few hours, I've come to the conclusion that it is not possible to actually play the game without paying for it. If you want to run a successful pay to win game like this one, the game has to at least be fun and fast paced enough in the beginning to lure people into paying for things later. This game fails to do that as you are immediately faced with a paywall or easily over 20 hours of grinding with the same starter deck to even unlock even the most basic features common in modern 'free to play' card games. I stopped at about hour three. (Note that I started playing this game outside of steam, which is why I only have an hour logged playing on steam.)

It's not that the game mechanics are bad, in fact they are quite interesting. Each deck being bound to certain factions and schools of magic is a promising feature that unfortunately does not come out prominently in the beginning as you are forced to play with the same intro deck (you can make some slight modifications to it with your starting cardpool if you wish) over and over again. The tactical mechanic of positioning your creatures and having area of effect features is also quite enjoyable. This is the meat of the game's structure and it is well executed. The main problem is with the way the paywalls are set up.

There is a simple conundrum in these pay to win games. If you don't want to pay, you have to spend countless hours grinding, which is boring, but at least you are playing the game. If you are willing to pay, you have to realize that you are in effect paying the game company to NOT play their game. It is quite an achievement for game developers to create a game so boring that people are willing to pay to NOT play it. So then what's the point? This is the pit that many of these games fall in.

So what would make this game better? More variation. The game should give every player access to all the starter decks. This way as they continue to grind through the game they are encouraged to try new things which will keep them playing, rather than get bored repetitively grinding with the same low power decks. Also removing the level requirement for the card trade in system is a must. This will allow players to more greatly customize whatever starter deck they like the most which will also encourage them to keep playing and trying new things. As is, the lack of customization available in deck construction to the new player really dampens the exploration of the game. It should be set up so that playing the game intrigues the player into wanting to try new things and then maybe pay to help that along instead of making them have to pay before even the creative spark fires, not knowing what they really want to do. This puts out the fire of imagination before it even starts.

To sum up, this game does not offer the non paying user any encouragement to want to play the game - let alone pay for it. Furthermore, the first few hours of gameplay do not adequately sell the game's features to the user, leading to the user to doubt that the game would be fun even if they put in a few dollars.

For interesting mechanics despite a horrible paywall system and an unfun experience, this game has a lot of potential if a few minor tweaks were made. It shall therefore earn a 1/5 rating. I will not be spending any more time playing this game.
