Instantly accessible, free for the base game, an active community that's happy to accommodate new players and a combat system that's got plenty of room to grow, Funcom have whacked this one out of the park.
Competitive, addicting, fast and fun! If you're searching for a skill based game then you will fall in love with this game! I started to play this game about 2 years ago and im still stuck! I still love it as I did in the beginning game on!
Love the art and style. Really alot of fun classes to play around with. Easy to install, playing right away, and dont feel like im missing too many features without putting cash in, enjoy the game, and its learning curve.
Bloodline Champions offers fast paced and incredibly entertaining action. Play for free online and battle on many kinds of maps against players from around the world. The game mixes tactics with pure skill and the result is superb.
While this isn't my personal choice for a MOBA, I think it is a great
take on the arena-styled MMO. You may find like me that the matches
should be longer, but it will give you hours of enjoyment and if this
is your game you could find a niche in a clan too. If you enjoy
leveling up and progressing your character this is the wrong game for
you. However, if you like to immediately jump into the thick of the
action and climb a mountain of corpses to reach your victory, then
Bloodline Champions has plenty to love.
Over hundreds of games played, I have never tasted a sweeter slice of pure adrenaline as smooth as Bloodline Champions. Despite currently facing the classic injustice of a apathetic publisher, there is undeniable potential for this game to rule ESports. This game is purely legendary and deserves success.
Okay, 10 hours into the game and I have yet to find an aspect that I do not like. The controls are a bit hectic when first learning but become second nature after a few games. The best part is there is a single player aspect of the game that will let you practice against bots with varying difficulties before you step into the real PvP and make an ass of yourself. Great concept with your character having all skills available up front. It becomes a true strategy game instead of a resource management game. Overall, great fun to be had here and it is free.
One word of warning. If you have trouble following your mouse on the screen or playing extremely fast paced games, this will be very difficult for you to get into.
There updates left the game in so many problems. Not enough characters compared to the player base. Its like facing the same characters over and over again. The game buttons are so confuzing for the game that you have to play for a long time to even master which buttons do what.
Bloodline Champions used to be a fun, different and very interesting team-based arena game that did a lot of things right...
First of all, despite using a skill system similar to an MMORPG, there were no dice rolls involved - you had to aim your sword strikes and fireballs and even barriers, tank for your allies by weakening your foes or just getting in between them and the enemy, and keep an eye on the arena and where everyone's at. Player skill determined which team would win, despite some balance problems that they would try to patch over time, and though there was a cash shop the only substantial thing to buy there was more classes. Even then, those classes could also be unlocked for free just by playing the game. Everything else was purely cosmetic fun stuff like costumes, weapon skins, titles and portraits.
However, recently they released the big patch 2.0 which changed a lot of game mechanics around, including ones that already worked well, and kind of ruined the balance of the game proper.
There are two especially egregious additions, in fact, and both of them were just lazily added on top of the existing game without any regard for how they would affect it, instead of being cleverly interwoven with what was already there.
The first one is a fairly boring but oddly convoluted World of Warcraft-style talent tree that mainly gives a huge amount of tiny stat boosts like increased damage or a bigger health bar. The second one is that the cash shop now sells powerful medallions that give you extra abilities and gems that also increase your stats, and you have to pay again every single time you want to change them around. Even if they were properly balanced they would still take way too long to set up, and it just adds another pointless barrier to entry for new players.
Imagine something like Quake or Counter-Strike receiving an MMO-style levelling system that favours people who play more or pay real money with no way to turn it off. At least Stunlock and Funcom did us the small favour of making it a bit less grindy than it could have been, but the best favour of all would have been to reconsider it and drop it entirely.
Before 2.0 I wholeheartedly recommended this game to my friends, but now it really is just a shadow of its former self. All it really needed was a bigger player base and maybe a price drop, not an ill considered level grind with all the power creep that came with it.
SummaryBloodline Champions is a PVP game with short, intense matches for up to ten players divided into two teams. Chance is not a factor, spells and abilities do a set amount of damage. Random elements such as critical hits and passive abilities do not exist. Every spell is aimed and can be avoided by enemy players, making every ability depend...
