This game rocks, not for the cheap player if ya wanna do well. But if you do, it's pretty damn fun if you think a RTF (real time fighting) CCG is a good layout.

Rts + ccg sounds great. But it's a mobage game. I have to admit I have a morbid curiosity as to how they have levered iap into this game. I assume you can buy packs to level up your cards?

It means Collectible Card Game. In real life it refers to games like magic the gathering. There are a number of ccg type games on ios and they comprise both collecting and deck building type games. These games have a somewhat nefarious reputation for encouraging players to spend their money collecting cards. At least in real life you can sell your rare cards to recoup some of your losses
