yes, the friend list is managed through gameloft's network and you can create guild for 2000 emblems. you can also create a party with your friend to search for a game. This is done through an overlay (a small window on the right) and not the full gameloft live clunky thing that i'm used to.

Yuck. Is there not some way to use Game Center friends?

Also on balance. This is going to be key, and only time will tell. Hopefully it's well enough done that most of the 30 heroes will be viable. IMHO, League of Legends has done a fantastic job of that.

Edit: Oh dang. Just browsed through Sanuku's menu video, and saw one little game-breaker... Item runes. The one shows here is the Rune of Revival, which is consumable and lets you respawn instantly. Seen around 2:30

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, FF Record Keeper, PAD

Nope no game center integration at all. Also i was wrong the friend list is game specific here, so you need to add everyone. You can add, blacklist or view recent players.

Those are gained and cannot be bought directly with gems. You can have some with the slot minigame.

Hey at least they're constantly working on it. I've played MMO's and MOBA's that have had broken balance for years.

Seriously? It's all rainbows and sh*t and then we find out there's an IAP gamebreaker? Oh gameloft. O_o

Still... the fact that you can revive with gems. I guess i'll see soon if this breaks game balance.

It's not that straightforward and you can get some for free and with emblems. I already have 27 of them and you can only have three at a time. And seeing the price of those gems... But we'll see!
