I beta tested this game. It's a nice mini MOBA with 5 minutes games

Looks polished from the gameplay videos and screenshots. More surprised Spacetime Studios is branching away from their "<name> legends" portfolio. Will try it out!

Small downloadsize, small play sessions possible due to games lasting 5 minutes at max. Interesting! I just played through the tutorial. Game seems fun, but I miss a shop where I can buy items during a match. Maybe that will be introduced later though. Let's see how long this game can hold my interest

I'm very surprised this isn't getting more attention from the community here. I played several games beyond the practice sessions last night on the champions that are available for free. The gameplay itself seems pretty solid.

There are no items and no skill upgrading within each game. You start out at full power and it remains the same throughout the game. This makes sense to me based on what Spacetime is trying to do here: short, action packed games. Queue times were reasonable and ranged from instant to a minute. It seems that you gain experience on each champion similar to how World of Tanks grants experience/gold per game. Once you hit the requirement for the next tier of upgrades you can purchase them for gold and experience, or convert experience to "free experience" to be used on other champs. Obviously that conversion will cost you iap currency.

So far I like it. I'll give it a shot. Honestly the most attractive part to me is short game time. I like just getting after it and teamfighting within the first 30 seconds of the game!

Pay to win? All you do is pay to get more exp and gold. You don't win by throwing money at it. All the heroes are pretty balanced
