I'm curious: which former Blizzard and Riot employees constitute Super Evil Megacorp? What were your positions at said companies?

(I was surprised to see questionable grammar and praise without attribution in the introduction of such a high-profile product. Since I assume former Riot and Blizzard devs know the value of presentation and transparent marketing, might someone less suitable be in charge of the App Store text and screenshots?)

Downloaded and have played a few 3v3 matches so I'll leave a brief review:

First off, this game is VERY polished and slick. From the menus and interface to the in game UI and characters \ scenery! it's gorgeous. No wonder it's ipad only, and it's worth the trade off.
For such an early release, and me being in the US, I experienced little to no lag, and the game systems were responsive and easy to grasp.
The game play is REALLY fun, and I could get quite addicted. There's enough twists on the MOBA concept to make it unique, and it's really well suited to the iPad.

There's only one lane, with towers. The jungle is huge however, and well layed out. Lots of room for tactics. You capture gold and crystal mines that level up your teams minions, (creeps) and increase your gold intake. After a while the gold mine spawns a giant beast. If your team can defeat and tame the beast, it will start marching towards the enemies base soaking up damage and attacking everything it finds. Great time to rally your team and push ! Super fun.

Of course there's the item shop for strategy as well. A MOBA staple, but even this feels slick and slimmed down a bit for the mobile style. There's still plenty of options and room for builds, but there's no bloat it seems, it hits a nice sweetspot giving you a number of options without being overwhelming. For those worried about English translation, the game is fully in English and there is no hint that it was ever designed for anything else.

All in all, this is a top notch game, and I can see it going very far with a global release and updates with heroes etc.

Oh one more thing, no IAP so far. Maybe because it's a soft launch? Maybe it's planned for later? Idk.

5/5 !! We have a future hit on our hands.
