Well that was a big middle finger to everyone who just bought during the sale. You couldn't have waited a week or two?

Hope this doesn't mean this is going f2p.

According to the TA news, the main difference is that at the start you choose one from the first 3 character classes to play as, and then the other 2 becomes IAP-locked, similar to the other 3 unlockable characters.

The catch is that you only have 1 character class to play with until you unlock the others.

I believe they can still be unlocked using ingame-acquired gems though.

Wait so this is a different app than the original game? I didn't realize that.

From the sound of it, yeah. Havent checked though.

Basically, you get EVERYTHING from the paid version, but 2 of the first 3 classes will become locked like the other 3 new classes.

I'm pretty sure this requires you to work a little harder if you don't want to spend any cash on this free version.
