    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.

    Pro:
    the most strategic card game actually . it change from usual might & magic game but it s a good change the battlefield control and
    other subtlety make it an addicting game.
    You don't have to pay to win.
    fun and the art are beautiful.

    Con:
    Really confusing at start. Many things are not specified in the tutorial like you only as access to specified magic type on the hero card... (that sound obvious put like this but at first it s not) .
    Require to get some experience through painful game discovering new spell / aptitude :D to really enjoy the game.

    First of all, this game is now neither pay to win, nor unbalanced: reviews which say so are usually pre-Griffin Bane expansion, which immediately gives new referred players all six starter decks, plus tons of gold to buy cards upon completing the introductory campaigns, and brings back all Factions to competitive levels.

    More complex, varied and ultimately satisfactory than Hearthstone, this game has very nice mechanics, with the board consisting of four rows and two columns (shooter and melee) for each player, spells which can affect single creatures, specific areas (squares, rows, columns) or even the entire board, and fortunes which usually manipulate cards and decks.
    Creatures can be basic or have a lot of useful abilities (immune to retaliation, stackable, outmaneuver, etc.), including "enter the board" effects.

    Simply put, this is the best CCG I've ever played.

    P.s. Since I love the game, I'm glad to help new players to understand it, so feel free to ask for help and/or for my referral code, should you have no friends who play the game.

    I tried this game for 3 days now.
    I like the easy to understand mechanic and the sort of ability a "planewalker" have.
    I believed it would
    have been another type of Magic the gathering but it have its own playing style and "mana pool"
    Its very easy to get caught into the game, however it lack the starting point of gaining cards unless you use the marks you gained from the start to buy the card box (which i recommend to at least buy 1 to give you good option)

    i think that this game is genuinely good and is a good addition to free to play online trading card game. only wish there was an actual way to trade cards.

    Gameplay is pretty fun and there are some few tactics to use but sadly its so very unbalanced so if you dont have the lost of money to spend just stay away.

    There are many gamebreaking cards and many mechanics that force you to either spend money or get ripped to pieces.

    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
