    They are one of the biggest corporations in the world so they have unlimited resources to promote the game. They also can afford the licensing to put DC characters in it. They also own other apps where they can advertise their game and not advertise others. Etc. Basically a Monopoly.

    It actually reminds me of an 80's arcade game. Which was pay to win with quarters.

    Dunno. Everything with virtual Joysticks and buttons on a touchscreen is cringy and looks crappy IMO.

    Go ahead, take a look. Vainglory should be fine, this game is nothing special.

    well, batman wont do them any good, as long as he costs 16,5€ without a way to get him free. you are not making a competitive moba with that.
    i never thought i would say this, but vainglorys hero prices dont seem too bad, if you look at this game.
    the only thing semc could take from it is the free hero you get each day for playing a few games for your first few days.

    This game is just a cheap rip-off of LoL tho. I think their original name "Strike of Kings" got sued so now they changed it entirely lol.
    Idk why anyone would play this game.

    Hate to be that guy but don't judge any game based on this because
    1. It's just cosmetics
    2. This is pretty standard, SEMC is pretty generous when it comes to skins which is one reason I get so annoyed when people complain about drop rates or skin prices

    Ya. I just installed it and theyre giving away a lot of other heroes for free and theyre really easy to get. The graphics look good on my phone but theyre nothing special on a tablet imo

    Same rip off trash games. there are 3 or 4 games in google store just like that.

    the graphics are really boring on a tablet. the only thing that looks good is the river crossing the middle lane.
    allthough gifting new players lots of stuff will get them attached to the game more easily.

    Riot didn't sue strike of kings. That company that made strike of kings literally owns riot. Riot is however sueing Mobile Legends.

    IMO Arena of valor will be a big hit at first simply because they own Riot (League Of Legends) that along gives them a good advantage, however VGs graphics and responsive controls will prevail at the end.

    Yes, Arena of Valour is a very serious contender. However, I am 200% certain that SEMC has been very aware of their presence since November of 2015. More importantly, I am 1000% certain that SEMC has been strategically planning for their NA release for quite some time. Evidence of this can already be seen in the past subsequent months.

    I would never underestimate the ingenuity, resourcefulness, creativity and sheer brilliance of the team down at the lair.

    However, sometimes, you have to put your money where your mouth is; which is why I have gone ahead and dropped a few more "bucks" their way JUST to let them know how much their players are ready and willing to go hand-in-hand to take on Goliath.

    VG has this same exact issue (though perhaps not to the same degree as SoK does).

    At least in VG you have Block but if you get hit with CC in SoK it's a dead end for you because Captains there have no other ways helping you whatsoever.

    But the heroes over there have BIG balancing problems. There was a tank who can deal ridiculous damage if her health goes low enough and she can heal like crazy. A gank of 5 won't even be enough. And they just buffed her even more. What a joke.

    there will always be some heroes stronger than the rest. that is happening in every moba.
    the only question is, how much stronger than the rest will they be?
    i think vg has that part figured out most of the time and they are able to react the next update (if the change makes it through that is).
    with arena of valor, i have to play it a bit more, but not having access to one hero for ever is certainly not going to be a plus for them.
