but the game itself is this hot mess of unbalanced new robots and a general sense of being in hell for anyone who wants to play this as a Free 2 Play.
Don't expect to have a stress-free experience unless you can dump a decent chunk of your wallet into this game, as whenever new content is added, it is so unbelievably broken, and, near unobtainable to Free 2 Play players that the only way to keep up with the meta is to continuously buy new content.
Played it since a couple of years (before the addition of lock-down weapons) and from there, the game has improved graphically, but completely crashed gameplay wise, from the POV of a Free 2 Play.
As soon as F2Ps get their hands on the meta content, through the F2P method of getting it, it is already outdated and not very viable to use (most of the time).
I for one have stopped playing due to the sheer stress that comes with being a F2P War Robots player, it will take a LOT of reworking of the game's balance and meta progression to fix this situation, and it doesn't look like Pixonic really wants to.
You can check the game out for yourself, but be warned: Your joy depends on whether you want to Pay 2 Win or not.
