  • Summary: Face off in dynamic, alternating combat full of opportunities to adapt and outplay. Make your move, but be ready to react, because your opponent has a plan of their own. It all comes down to this—can you outwit them and win?

    There’s a lot of pleasure to be had in watching your favorite champions do similar tricks to those from League of Legends. It’s a bold mix of themes known from Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone with stuff that’s absolutely unique. [07/2020, p.48]

    The strategically and optically convincing TGC skillfully introduces new ideas into the genre. Very generous and fair Free2Play system!

    One critic earlier mention those below and i agree with him mainly on these points. Game is also very cheap to play without huge p2w mechanicsOne critic earlier mention those below and i agree with him mainly on these points. Game is also very cheap to play without huge p2w mechanics as of this time of saying with that being said however,

    Music and Art is great as with all of Riot Game's work.

    Mana-efficiency of cards is all over the place. Some cards have OP stats with their mana while some other cards have terrible cost. You have for example, a 7 mana 3/7 that draws you miss fortune but gets removed by one culling strike at 3 mana, On the other hand, you get a 2 mana 5/1 that can challenge a 5 mana unit and even some 6 mana ones. Due to this and slightly powercreep cards coupled with game RNG like nab can be a huge deciding factor on who win and lose.

    AFK behavior is basically a punishment for the active player, instead of the other way around.

    Bugs and glitches as far the eye can see. Reporting those bugs and glitches to them only get them to acknowledge it but doesn't fix it.

    Lackluster missions and points for winning matches.

    Even worse: the more you play, the less points you'll get over time. It is the first game I have encountered, that punishes active play. And thats their MMR system very nonsensical.

    Altro gioco di carte online che tenta di rinfrescare il genere, senza il minimo successo.

    The game is frustrating, unplayable, unbalanced, mechanics that should not exist, cards that should not be created at all, bugged, I shouldThe game is frustrating, unplayable, unbalanced, mechanics that should not exist, cards that should not be created at all, bugged, I should write a separate review about this funny matchmaking, always choose the most expensive cards from the deck, no matter that you have a deck filled to the brim with cheap **** always will you choose what you don't need, and your opponent always say, always has what he needs, how the **** do I ask? Errors that often lead to your defeat, and do not write about the mistakes you make, but about those ****ing bugs that make the opponent's unit invisible from the beginning of the game, or the graphics of the unit that you got rid of 5 games ago! the glow that hits your eyes from some cards is so bright that half the screen is invisible, so you can't play unless you get rid of the cards from the hand that is responsible for it. I play from the beta and I think it will stop, I can't stand this carousel of frustration, first Elusive, then Burn Aggro, now Unyielding Spirit, Rito, get down to work and you don't promise a pear on a willow, first fix it and then add content because I'm ****ing it can't be played, I know that I wrote a lot of bad things, probably most of what I wrote here happened only to me, but seriously the **** like me can't win even 1 game per hour what is to be said by a new player who is delighted with the positive reviews will come to LoR and will get after all this, **** up on the farm to collect cucumbers and not the ****ing cards. If you've read it to the end, then good luck on your journey through the dung heap called Legends of Runeterra. Expand
