I'm liking it. We did some co-op vs AI last night and every match we had some PC players and it was alright. Some slight hiccups here & there but still alright. Right now one large map with a dozen characters with at least one new one every three weeks. It's a mix & match of characters that resemble ones out of various other games. the newest one coming out today resembles The Reaper out of Diablo. The pace is just a little slow with matches lasting between 25-35 minutes or at least for now . The detail and effects are darn good being Alpha.. being Solo vs AI, co-op vs AI and PvP with PS4 & PC players seems to be a good fit.

I decided to give it a go on PS4 since they dropped the basic founder's pack down to $9.99. It seems fun, but i'm not familiar with MOBAs, so I'm a bit lost

I haven't played it this week since I'm playing (and liking) Alienation. There's not much since this is a on-going Beta but they have said the Alpha will be this summer...not sure what that is all about. I haven't done the PvP part; just the coop vs AI. They have been coming out with a new character every three weeks so that's cool and a new is coming out this week. Understanding what the characters strengths and weakness is key and then figuring out the Card System. It's somewhat like a skill tree but depends on you want offense or defense or a little of both and then seeing what type of enemies you're against; long range, short range, energy or physical.

There are some good sites explain this and Paragon tactics and there is a official forum as well. It's a good place to start. That's a good deal for the basic just to see what it's about and you can pretty much play whenever and as long as you want. I got the second one since any progress you make will be saved and you get a few goodies off the bat.

Thanks.

This isn't my usual type of game, but for ten bucks I figure it's worth a shot.

I don't understand the cards at all I'll have to do some reading

Read up on some strategy. Number one rule: Don't die lol.

Can't seem to get in a co-op match so I just did some solo vs AI. Still pretty fun though.

Doesn't give me PvP as an option.

Surprised you cannot get into a co-op match. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for all five characters to load in. The real big plus is both PS4 & PC players can play together. That wait time can be annoying.

Pick a few characters to play with and try to get them up to get new sets of cards as the rewards. And the more you level up as whole more rewards such as a New Deck....these can be assigned to any character where you fine tune the cards. Here are some links to help you out...
