Can't do it in real life so I beat the crap out of anyone I run into. But don't get me wrong. It requires players to use different tactics and strategies!

    DID YOU KNOW

    Playing turn-based strategy games stimulates cerebral activities. It is no wonder that the advent of video game technology can be attributed to the growing number of turn-based games available on different platforms such as PCs and smartphones. In fact, in the United States alone, the value of video game market hit 17.69 billion US dollars in 2016 and among all the genres of games, statistics show that fast-paced games seem to be the most popular one among gamers. In consonance with this, major differences of fast-paced real-time games and turn-based strategy games are interesting to take into account. According to Jon Shaper, a game designer and the owner and CEO of Conifer Games, the thin line dividing real-time and turn-based strategy games lies in the matter in which time passes. While this thought-provoking topic has paved the way for intelligent debates in the realm of games, only a few studies have essentially grasped the real differences between the two. One major difference is their approachability. Real-time games offer experiences that resemble everyday life because the players are somewhat put under pressure and are encouraged to act promptly while turn-based games give players the liberty and luxury of time to think and weigh all the possibilities laid in front of them. For the turn-based players, positioning is the key, and prioritization follows. Turn-based games may not have the natural pacing but the “downtime” can be considered as its greatest strength—giving players the full control to decide what is important and what is not.

You can't find friends in game without connecting through Facebook, the pvp system is unbalanced, and if you disconnect while loading a duel, which you WILL, you are fined for fleeing, which means throwing away hard earned game currency. Don;t waste time on this, find a better game."

While you can purchase items with real money, you don't need them to win. All you gotta do is grind it out and eventually, you'll start winning against the good players. Yes, even against those who bought their way to the top."

The main issue with the game is that it is a port and that it crashes a bunch and you can't save to the Cloud which is frustrating. Because it is a port, the animation can be glitchy and slow so there are better games out there for Android."

The game allows players to be creative, using different tactics and strategies to outfox their opponents. I would say 60 percent of its players are good and the rest are just bad players that makes me look good! Hahahahaha"
