Just downloaded and loving it.
Any ideas on what a good race to buy would be if I were to choose one? Or should I go through Challenge mode and see what I like from there?

Edit: Nvm, just realised that someone asked this question above...
Anyway, are the classes very different to each other or are there only minor changes between them? Are they balanced or does one have a big advantage? Although I guess that depends on playstyle.

theTeam fortress 2 team will not be iap, as it is an exclusive to the steam version, valve wants it to be only available if you purchase it on their platform, since the team is like advertising.

Wow this is a pretty fantastic game I wish I had of tried it before. I saw it on sale on steam ($4 for all the DLC) and thought I'd give the base game a try on my iPad before I bought it. Best $4 I've spent in a long time. Already sunk a ton of time into playing (8 games at once lol).

I have 400 something wins, good for somewhere between 150-200th place on the leaderboards. So yeah, a lot of people have put a lot of time in!

I'm not a big fan of Triniti style knock-offs, but the new Epic Arena, while a rip-off of Hero Academy, adds a lot of nice tweaks and touches that make the game feel fresh. (Not actually a Triniti product just using them as an example).

Right not, its only a facebook game. I know, right? But its actually a pretty harmless way to play a game.

If your a fan of Hero Academy, its worth checking out. Unless you have a moral opposition to Triniti-style knock offs anyway

I got it right at the beginning, but I'm still playing it regularly over a year later. I hope more teams are still coming
