Wow this game is pretty good, but the lag omg.

Where is the server ?

Please give us an oceanic server or something.

I stoped playing vainglory for the same reason.

Looks very similar to the character designs in Wildstar.

I played during the soft launch in Canada. I really wanted to like this game but it felt somewhat clunky compared to other mobas. Even for there being no gold or creep score, moving and using abilities was somewhat 'off' sometimes, even with a great connection.

Most of my matches the main strategy was to just teamfight in lane until you get the advantage, people rarely used the jungle and jungle buffs didn't seem to make a major difference. I know the game just came out but hero diversity was pretty bad because unlocking other heros besides the 3 starters cost a lot of in game currency.

That being said I will continue to follow the game, perhaps my experience was because not enough people were playing it.

This game breaks my heart. I'm loving the gameplay so far, and I might actually prefer this to Vainglory, which just doesn't work as well on the phone when compared to tablet play. But the moment you look at the store, the gem costs, the ability to power up characters...Why? The game is so good, what I want is there. But the prices are incredibly unreasonable, even for a modern day free to play game. On top of this we have yet another game that offers multi-tier subscriptions, the next hottest thing to take over the hilariously amoral freemium scene since Clash Royale's app store consuming "cards in games that aren't actually card games at all solely as an excuse to sell you bullcrap RNG based booster packs/chests."

You were the one for me Planet of Heroes. But you can't take my money at these prices. I absolutely want to give you money, I'm fine with the model you chose for this type of genre. I, like many, have given hundreds to League of Legends. You're not League of Legends, I wish you wouldn't try to pull this stuff out the gate. I'll keep an eye on the app from time to time to see how things shake down, because I'm really feeling the missed opportunity for a greater community for this game that clearly had a lot of love and time spent on it. I feel like this moba deserved a little better.

I still recommend that everybody check this out regardless, to see how they personally feel about the game. There's definitely good stuff in there.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the kind words about our game so far! We really hope to hit a nerve here with designing a Moba that is only simplified enough for playing it on the go or in between your PC Mobas (or solely if you don't have time for those anymore).

I'd like to address to address our Oceania friend first: Our matchmaking works based on distance to different battle servers around the globe. We have a meta server that does all the fancy routing calculation and issues rewards and manages your friend list, that is based in Amsterdam. You see that ping thereto in the main menu, which some players confuse with the gameplay ping.

And for the gameplay itself, we have battle servers in Amsterdam, Virginia, San Jose, Sao Paolo, Seoul and Singapore - and newly since this week we added Mumbai, Hong Kong, Beijing and look to open another one in the Arab region, possibly near the Cairo interchange (MEX). So that being said, you will be preferably matched on the Singapore server (for New Zealanders) and if there are not enough players currently searching, you're transferred to one of the other regions. That scenario can result in higher ping of course, but hopefully should be a non-issue very soon due to player influx.

Another topic is the pricing. As you see, in the item mall we are only selling stuff which you either can obtain by just playing without paying anything, or its pure vanity - skins. For example, the most expensive hero which is always the newest (all others are reduced after a while) takes about 3 weeks to obtain while only doing the daily quests and nothing else - no additional matches, no PVE campaign play. Everything beyond that would short the time, that is already only 1 week for the cheaper heroes.

In addition, since we are not believers in the mobile trend of Pay2Win by adding stats to vanity that some of our competitors seem to be fond of, we don't "exert" any real buying pressure for competing successfully in the arena. The first 3 heroes are free, you can try any hero in the practice mode, and we had events every week where you can win skins, heroes, Insignia for high level runes. In addition to that, we will have sales events of course, and the starter kit gives another hero plus skin and more shop currency at 90% discount, for a fiver (exchange rates might put it a little higher or lower).

So all of this considered, we hope to strike a chord not only with you and the rest of the community gameplay wise, but also as transparent and fair regarding the monetization. Happy to answer any questions you might have!

PS: We're working on further heroes of course. 2 are almost finished in production and the 3rd is in concept phase. Follow us on Facebook to get some more info and teasers (and event info!)
