    Ubisoft's card game demands lots of thinking, detailed planning and constant changes in tactics. The developer is strongly supporting the game (new decks, add-ons and balance fixes), what makes it a great tournament game. Perhaps it's not the best product for gamers avoiding long time engagement, but even they should consider it. Duel of Champions is a great game for a thinking player.

    Accessible, challenging and endlessly strategic with a great community. [March 2013, p.89]

    Might & Magic: Duel of Champions is the natural evolution of the trading card game in the revolutionary era of digital entertaining, a perfect free-to-play game that combines fun with collecting.

    Ubisoft are to be applauded for grasping, as Hi-Rez Studios did with Tribes Ascend, that the secret to a successful free-to-play title is building a healthy player base first and foremost and watching the income flow from that, rather than nickel and diming gamers for even basic content. It also helps if your core game is any good to begin with, and Might & Magic Duel of Champions is most certainly that. In fact, I'd heartily recommend it to fans of the Might & Magic series or online trading card games in general even if it had a price tag attached.

    there are always things to do.

    The gameplay is much more interesting than hearthstone, with more cards in the deck and your hand which gives you a more options and more skilled based game play, and with the strategic 2x4 battle field gives you a great and different tube of card game, and no battle feels the same.

    I'm very addicted to this game. It has some bugs and fixes come slowly, but it's one of the funniest games I have played recently and has a lot of potential because of its good game conceptual design.
    Artwork is also at a high level.

    The game itself is fun! It has really nice strategy and gives plenty of options to make card combos.
    But I will list some major problems:


    1. Problem is the money system: if you don't play 4-6 hours a day (which is boring) you will never be able to compete with people who invested money.

    2. Problem: the "wildcard" currency. With this special currency you can buy specific cards that you need, which is good. The problem is, that you can barely get this currency, unless you invest some real money. When you "burn" cards, that you don't need you will just get the basic "gold" currency and not a "wildcard" currency.

    3. You can only buy specific cards of an expansion with wildcards if you already have 200 cards of that expansion.

    4. You can not use a card that you own in two different decks! Oh no, if you want to use your epic spell in two decks, you better own the spell twice! This is super ridiculous. Yes in real life you would need to manually take the card from one deck and put it in your other deck. But this is a digital game, with tons of drawbacks already, it could at least give us this benefit...

    Basically the whole game is screaming at you: INVEST REAL MONEY! (or you need to play for a year until you have enough cards to make different deck combos)

    This game has some promise but they ruin it with a pay to win wall, you'll start out and do fairly well for a bit and then hit the wall and get smashed over and over by people who have dumped money into the game. Even single player plays this way, the first couple missions are ridiculously easy and then there's no way yo progress without luck or dropping a ton of money. Save yourself the time, money and frustration and steer clear. Expand

    Designed from the bottom up to be pay-to-win. Unless you plan on sinking a TON of cash into this game you'll stand no chance. Even to progress in the single player campaign requires a bought for deck. The devs made sure you have no option but to hand them cash. Stay away from this one. Expand

    A truly terrible game. Rarely are games balanced, and certain decks which people have paid a lot of money for will always win. I would not recommend this game to anyone and would advise against this game in favor of others. Expand
