tl;dr 7/10 it's lots of fun and needs no tutorial to get into it and has no microtransactions, but suffers from lack of progression. The best autochess game out of the lot to get into if you are new to the genre hands down.

I have tried dota 2 autochess and League of legends autochess and the one thing that turned me off from those games is the personal level with how few players there were in a match and how long it takes to go through a match as well as the hefty complexity and learning curve. Losing sucks in those games, you just get pounded repeatedly for 10 minutes with no leeway if you suck or are just starting. You have to consult online guides and do research to even stand a chance.
In chess royale, there's a 100 people and you're bound to be better than most of them. If you have any kind of familiarity with autochess this game needs no tutorial and has lots of quality of life features that make the gameplay flow easily, like showing openly and easily what synergies with what and alerting you clearly what units you already have on the buy menu so you can buy them for later combining.
On the downside there's little or no progression in this game, you can unlock avatars, autochat phrases, and avatar borders and that's it... Nothing else really to work towards besides being number 1 in each match or getting involved with the leaderboards which appear to have no baring on skill but rather how much you play.
The games go quick, with an early loss being around 5-10minutes and at 10 minutes being when 50 players are normally left and with 15+ minutes if you manage to get in the top 5.
My favorite thing about this game is the fact that you can play and learn as you go, a huge turn off for me is when you have to do research to play a game, a little hypocritical since i play dwarf fortress, but most people don't have time or want to spend time learning how to play a game.
Being able to learn the game and create your own meta as you go along the way is a truly special thing in online games that you see rarely nowadays and only if you are one of the first players. Normally hours after a game has released the perfect meta and way you should play the game has already been figured out by other players and you just feel like a chump not playing the meta. In other words, due to there being 100 players even in your first few matches you have a great chance of getting in the top 50 where as in other autochess games the other 7 or so players will just scrub the floor with you mercilessly.
Anyways 7/10 I'd give this a 8/10 but it is on the Uplay launcher and im not dissing the Uplay launcher just cause it's not steam, I'm dissing it because the playerbase will be smaller because they won't bring it to steam. From what i've seen though it is on mobile so hopefully that will sustain it.
All in all lots of fun.… Expand
