Cool, I'll definitely check it out. It's by the same people who made Valiant Force, which seems to have a decent following around here.

yeah from what i know of FunPlus, they tend to nickel and dime you a lot less than similar games from other companies, which is always a plus. Also, i tested 3 different accounts and all 3 pulled the same SR(knight) and UR(archer) from the free 10pull you get within 5 mins of the game, so if you get the same ones, no point in rerolling i guess (save some time)

Yep, those are what I got too. Gonna be awhile before I save up for another pull.

Overall, gameplay seems pretty similar to a variety of other 2D auto-battle games. I have no clue which one was the original, but Girls X Battle is my reference point for the genre. The player's main interaction is timing the release of special attacks.

Somewhat uniquely, there's a bonding-system where all units are in sets of three. Based on the level (both evolution-based star level and actual experience-based level) of these units, they provide each other a stat bonus and have a chance to jump into battle and replace their fallen comrade. This has the potential to make a lower rarity unit more valuable than a higher rarity unit if the bond-mates of the lower rarity unit have been raised/evolved to the point where they can be significant contributors or can be counted on to replace the fallen unit.
