The Sunsear!

Hey Touch Arcade people! We've added another new Champ to the game today, a deadly nuker/buffer - part of the Sun Elf race - the Sunsear!



Check out her wiki page for more information, and pick her up now in the in-game store!

Oh, and if you want to get a few more details on the Sunsear, watch this highlight from our Twitch TV stream last week.

They're saying on their streams that Europe release is soon, but no dates yet. So hey, almost there!

Anyway, with Bard nerfs and release of my new favorite unit Abomination, Champs is looking as good as ever. I just hope more worldwide release goes out successfully so that there are plenty of opponents to face.

With the move and basic attack buttons not on the overhead action menu, the two special attack buttons could be increased in size. This would all increase the speed and fluidity of game play. This is greatly needed, imo.

This game deserves a lot of praise, but the controls and matchmaking are just getting in he way of that praise.
I just started playing, not sure if I missed the hype.

While I sort of like the game, to me it has 2 noticeable flaws:

1 - controls (as mentioned) seem to have been designed to make playing harder rather than fast & beautiful. A game that could have been Star Wars Chess instead is 'select this / select this / select this' non-stop and constant panic, without really being able to watch the gameplay or amazing graphics.

2 - no real customization. Don't get me wrong on this one, I hate the "select the nose / move the chin up or down" super-customization screens in mainstream games. BUT allowing players to give their minions names, to show gear (in this case fairly generic 'artifact stones'), to have different outfits, etc. Not sure about other players, but when I go to battle, I have a hard time differentiating my team b/c they all look generically the same.
I can't even designate a leader (give them a different 'glow' or ?), or somehow make one Level 4 initiate look different a Lvl 1 initiate. Maybe this changes?

The game idea is tops. The implementation is ... so so.
