As a SWGOH player, this looks ... pretty good.

It's really fun - MOBA style.
You control a hero, and develop a "deck" which are your spawns (creeps). These get spawned from the hero so they are always where you need them.
Great idea

I had a problem with lag but I assume it will be fixed

Played one game so far and its pretty neat. Small moba style battleground and you control your leader and the deck spawns troops for backup. Will get into it more later.

It seems leaders have unique cards that can only be used in their decks. Like Emperor has his royal guards, so you can only use that card if Emperor is your leader. I played a Han and I think Chewie was his unique card.

The ship cards act as "spells" kind of and just do a fly by and blast the area, while the troops spawn X guys and fight alongside you.

i'm afraid if the game is not profitable enough, the developers might shut it down, just like star wars uprising T_T

The game has potential, but a little basic at the moment. I do have faith that they will continue to improve the game; with network stability and content. Its netmarble and they consistently add contact and improve Marvel Future Fight so I am very optimistic. And....it's Star Wars so it really needs to be bad for me not to play and invest in it.
