Not played that - it's a 'free to play' which means fast progress to start, then days/weeks of grinding to progress further, unless you pay lots of money in micro-transactions.

Have played Age of Empires - the PC game that is loosely based off. :)

Kewl~ the kinda thing a little too reminiscent of blackmail or extortion for further play is really kind of not right. I mean, I know they need to make money but that just doesn't seem right. /:

Your tears don't fall, they crash around me
Her conscience calls the guilty to come home
The moments die, I hear no screaming
The visions left inside me are slowly fading
Would she hear me if I called her name?
Would she hold me if she knew my shame?

I may, or may not have fallen for that in a couple of games I used to play on my phone...

That I (mostly) don't play now, because of the need to pay real money to progress. Worked out I spent a few Hundred pounds over a couple of months, as separately a couple of quid here or there seems innocent, but it adds up quickly, when you're doing three or four of those a day, every day...

Yep.

It's a shame, I liked the game, but can't afford to keep wasting money on it, and without doing that it really isn't great to play.

If I could I'd get that Funimation channel but I don't think I'd spend it on a game like that. DLC is different though, I'll spend on that at the drop of a hat. lol

Thing is, DLC is generally one off-purchases, and lots of replayable content.

Free to play micro transactions generally are one of things, and don't give replay value.

Yep. That's why they're so controversial generally. People (myself included) get sucked into the game, and willing to spend that 'little' bit to advance to the next milestone. Which leads to that being needed/ done again, and again. Since typically you'll be close, but without the microtransaction, that 'close' means days/weeks/months depending on the game/ how long you've played, of playing if you don't buy the item(s)

I think I've seen and played a few games like that. Epic 7 and Raid: Shadow Legends. Only used some of a Google Play gift card on the latter though. I can appreciate the level of temptation. ><

Dad was on his way to pick up dinner when I posted that so it didn't make much sense to turn this back on for just a couple minutes when he was about to walk through the front door with our dinner. ^^; Sorry, even though everyone's probably asleep now I'm back now. lol
