It looks really nice, but I personally do not find auto attack games very fun. The characters also move on their own
to the next area. Maybe later you can turn auto attack off, but I deleted it before I could find out.

In my case I find the autoplay system pointless in a game supposed to be freaking played!

i like gamevil games so will try this one out myself, i see autoplay is the talk of the thread. Like it or hate it autoplay is standard feature in Asia games without it that game would not even get a look in on that market. Its not everyone cup of tea having a game play it self, i can see both the good and bad in having this feature.

Lineage 2 has auto play, i have tried it both manual and auto play and to be honest i preferred it on auto play! I couldn't keep tapping the screen hours at a time had auto play not been put into the game.

I was like Darkfyra i thought auto play was daft feature but now in case of a lot of games that require you to grind and grind i prefer to use it.

I just started and it already feels grindy and boring. The dailies are insipid time wasters that involve no challenge & are merely time sinks to get mats.

I'd stick it out if the combat felt interesting, but it's pretty dull.

So is the poop emoji in the first post with the description a foreshadowing of how this game will be?

Not fully automated as Ive found out trying it,you atleast need to choose your skills but for the rest you dont control directly your characters but it get dull really fast and repetitive really fast.
