coop is a must in this game if you want to progress like a normal person but the waiting time for your room to fill up is pretty ass. you can make a room while taking a shit and your toilet will fill up faster than your room
and soloing to grind is not exatcly an option because the AI in this game have a similar intelligence to a rock, you probably will have a better winning chance playing with a 4 year old instead because the AI just keep killing themselves like jihad squad
music is good indeed but only like 1 or 2 piece of them the rest are basically the same track with the same tune just with a different instrument or pacing
all in all, play this game only if you have friends to play this with. at least you can share the pain together. or really just play something else.
As grindy as this game but it only when people rush their thing. I actually like how grindy this game while its not really grindy at all (see granblue with their never ending grind). It can be enjoyed forever.
The story not really having it muse. But it decent for generic fantasy. I mean its only realesed and can't complain about story yet.
As for gameplay i enjoyed it so far. With bug there and therw is to be expected with new game. Actually they responsive and try to fix it asap.
For music its Daoko for you. up to everyones taste.
The graphic is a mix for portrait character being nintendo and wyrmprind for cygames. I dont know why they saying the art suck for not being cygames, while the nintendo art itself good.
I didn't have to reroll for this game, as I got "one of the best" 5* Character and 5* Dragon currently available in the game. It would be a waste if I didn't give it a shot, so I played it for three days.
The soundtrack is amazing, I'll still listen to it even though I've dropped this game. The UI is quirky good, like probably one of the best UI I've seen in a mobage. The graphics are okay, and the story is actually pretty compelling.
What went wrong? The gacha and the gameplay.
The gacha is god-awful, like even though I'm pretty set with my account, I just have to say it. 0.5% for a 5* Character/Dragon, which are the most optimal characters? Nahhh, don't do it. The gameplay is co-op, which isn't even a problem in and of itself, but you know how it goes. Bad teammates lead to bad gameplay, which makes playing the game just frustrating. Plus it's super grindy co-op.
I dropped this game, but I recommend you give it a try.
Drawing from the gacha is the only way of getting characters currently, aside from the few story and event freebies. The gacha itself has okay rates, but wyrmprints and dragons (think equipment) is all in the same pool with the characters, which can get frustrating. Still, you're quaranteed a 4* with every 10-pull (out of 5 stars) and even some 3* will carry you all the way through the story and endgame. The game is more about skill than stats and random chance.
And the music is fricking fantastic!
The devs are very receptive and they frequently inform players on what's ahead for the game. There was once where I reported a bug and I received a reply in less than a day! They also give out tenfold tickets for every new update.
While true it can be grindy but there's no pvp aspect so you can play at your own pace. 3* and 4* units/dragons in this game are actually viable if you decide to invest in them a bit. Heck, some of these units have broken skills that makes them more useful than some 5* or even allows budget team builds. For example, Melody (3* unit) in High Mercury trial.
Also, they are going to revamp the gacha system on April 25. Wyrmprints will not be in the pool anymore! Instead, you can obtain any wyrmprint you like by trading with Eldwater. They will also compensate any dupe adventurers you've obtained, so check the news for more info.
This update is absolutely insane and if this doesn't prove that Dragalia is the most generous game ever I don't know what is.
(edit : wow , 10 likes , thank you )
the gacha is awful, you need all 3 the dragon, the character and the card, and you need multiple copies of the card, also has an stamina system, the rates are way too low and the low star characters will get you no far, evetually you need 5 star characters or you get stuck,
so, in a nutshell, this is white cat project but with all that stuff you hate from mobile games
Controls? A little stiff, targetting can be a bit of a pain sometimes but you end up getting used to it
Grind? If you pace it, it helps the game last you way more than just going hard a few days to then say "this game sucks" (smh all these reviews)
Gacha? Rates aren't AS bad as people makes you believe, and you can honestly make do with some 4* characters and wyrmprints (having a 5* something doesn't guarantee you'll do good, the amount of times I have had to carry people with full 5* gear is...more than it should)
Story? Nothing new here, but I appreciate the lil Cygames touch in the character/dragon/castle stories
Soundtrack? Gr8, not much else to say here
Summary, better than the average. Also, quality options are a plus for someone with a potato tablet
After a couple hours i had no interesting things to do . White cat project is 100 times better . Greedy compagny , low rate , no event , wow !
Nintendo , Ubisoft , Gameloft , Nexon , Netmarble , EA , avoid these compagnies at all cost !
Also, the coop is pretty good, the main problem is that it is región free, so the lag might be an issue.
