Seconding both the above. Played for maybe an hour: uncomplicated fun (I LOVE the option to either auto or manually move, awesome for e.g. smokebreaks vs. "serious gametime") , graphics are okay/good but not on jawdropper level. I played in a 15 vs 15 match and was surprised how smooth that went, no lags or glitches.

Have to see how it turns out when playing longer.

Only nitpicks I have so far are that I can't hide the global chat at the bottom, the UI is a tad cluttered (but otherwise pretty good), and that I can't change my char's appearance (e.g. haircolor) .

I played and deleted this game after a couple hours two times trying to force myself to like it. Im not interested in WoW-lite, WoW came out 13 years ago, let it go. The raids and auto function are fine, but everything else leaves me wanting more and expecting better. Just my opinion, a lot of people seem to love it, so it's for sure worth a try.

I don't know why people complain about autoplay when most of the time it's optional.

I agree with all of this.
Darkfyra give adventurequest 3D a go... it's quite good and close to the feel of a pc mmorpg

I honestly don't understand all of the hatred over auto-combat. It's very simple: DON'T USE IT. However, if you're going to end up farming the same levels for rare gear over and over again, auto-running can be a godsend. Let's be honest, every MMO PC or otherwise eventually devolves to endless grinding, which is also NOT fun. And frankly, what business is it of yours how people choose to interact with games, and how exactly does that affect your enjoyment?

You have to understand that people use mobile devices differently than PCs, and in that respect MMOs will aways make concessions for smaller play sessions in mind. While there will always be a steady stream of premium mobile developers catering to hardcore gamers, you're a niche in the market. Times have changed. Adapt, embrace platforms that cater to your interests, or find another hobby.

TL;DR : For PC and Console gamers, mobile gaming will never satisfy you, and there aren't enough of you to change industry trends.

Just for the record: We already did autocombat (ok, we had to write the scripts ourselves) when I started playing MUDs back in 1990 or so. So it's not exactly a new thing

Other than that:
Folks, if you want to discuss the merits (or not) of autocombat or whatever, move it to a separate thread. And that's an order And if you want to rant (so not looking at you, darkfyra), most definitely do it in a separate thread.

Oh, and I just deleted it again. Too many fetchquests, not enough fighting.

Funny, I felt the same about WoW when I played it to get the Hearthstone hero. I felt like a friggin gopher frat initiate, which is fine at first but gets old fast.

This is such an awesome truth. There are few new ideas in this kind of game, just different levels of execution.

I like auto play to skip boring bits. I like what I see of this so far, There are some truly embarrassing non-English speaking typos (it's "minutes," please), and the GUI is too small for my iPhone 6s, but I'll give it a try.
