I'm really enjoying the game.

Question. Some characters have skills...is there a way to manually activate them or is it random?

Signed up for a mobage login with my email address. Then tried to sign in. Game says that the id is too long (I used my email address). Thought maybe there was a second step to the sign up process, checked my email, do not have anything from mobage.

Tried again to set up mobage account. Same result, game will not let me in.

Deleted app.
Exactly what happened to me, except I didn't get excited by the tutorial :P

If you go into band and look at the monsters stats, you'll see the possibility of him launching a special move

monsters can drop more than one item each, got four pixite and a coins just now :3 and i have a little percentage thingy for the pixite builds: i have made 130 pixites
got 42 ikkupis --> 31% chance maybe
got 72 commons--> i guess 63% chance
got 7 uncommons -->i guess 5% chance
got 1 rare --> 1% chance? or did i just got REALLY lucky?

Anyone knows when they plan on adding gears? as it stands gold is useless.

Otherwise the game is fun and does a good job of being addictive by emulating the Pokemon vibe when it comes to fusing characters together. Fighting friend bands, the story telling and progression system that has you play until you consume your energy bar. IAP anyone?

Like all social games of the sort the energy system is a pain, but I think they dont push it too far like Puzzle and Dragon for exemple, but hey the game is free and quite fun. Technically speaking the game feels a bit slow as it connects to Mobage servers for pretty much any action in the game.

The bottom line. fun little game, missing a couple of features at launch (gear and limited events not implemented yet), constant connection requirement is a pain as it makes the game a bit slow, besides the obvious I-can't-play-offline. Let's now hope they keep adding more content in the next weeks or months.

It's a great energy game. Not a ton of strategy but it is still fun. Also I bought 5 premium and got only rares.

I think that when you lvl up your maximum energy should increase. It would make the game more fun

I have to agree with this suggestion, having spent more time with the game I must admit energy system is really not rewarding at all. One can easily burn through all his stamina in one session.

My concern is over the lack of interest from Mobage in improving any of their games, and this could result in D.O.T stalling forever. To be honest i wish I was so wrong here.

Yea but I guess we can at least expect one big update - gold usage for gears and possibly more interaction with friends.

Fun fact: you can click the x1 on the bottom right to speed up battles. I felt teally dumb that I didnt see this... and maybe someone else didnt see it as well! Haha.

Edit: I was supposed to get a rare from thr log in bonus today but hes no where to be seen. Is it only a chance to get him, or is it a glitch?
