I started playing over the weekend. Sorry I didn’t ask any of you to sponsor me or whatever it is that gets us both free stuff. I just jumped in.
It’s an enjoyable game. So far I’m chewing through the single-player stuff and since I’m still learning the game, it’s keeping my attention. I especially like the puzzle missions.
The game does a good job of rewarding players with free cards and gold to buy cards. I can see that if I decide to keep with it I’ll throw some money at it to accelerate my card acquisition (I already spent $10 to get the one-time selection of gems and cosmetics to I could complete a daily quest).
The game reminds me a bit of an old CCG I played that also used a game world and card movement and positioning, Sanctum.
I made the mistake of buying a couple of epic packs of cards with my gems. I didn’t realize that they were just cards with fancy borders. I thought I got some types of cards I couldn’t get otherwise. It now seems like the best use of the gems is to buy mission packs? Or should I just buy a pack of cards with the gems? Am I missing anything? I don’t care about the cosmetic stuff.
