I finally gave Gods Unchained a try. In this video. I open a few packs I was given for signing up and play a match, then open a couple more packs from the end of the match.
The game takes a lot of inspiration from Hearthstone, so much so it looks like they basically used every bit of it to design the new one.
While the cards have some good graphics, the interface and around the cards art look very unpolished and low resolution. I assume this will change over time but really makes it feel like a cheap knock off.
If you have played Hearthstone, you already know how to play this game. The traits have changed names but most of them are there plus a few new ones. I have noticed a few changes like double attack minions cannot attack the other hero twice in one turn and if you have haste (they call it blitz) you cannot attack the hero either. Some of these changes mean you have to be smarter when creating your deck as I found myself unable to make moves a few times despite having creatures ready to attack.
You are unable to create an account unless you get invited. I am not sure how many invites I have but you can use my beta key to get into the game.
There is an in-game raffle for genesis cards that you can tokens for winning games and for inviting people.
If you want to purchase cards, you will need to link an Ethereum wallet and deposit Ethereum. Keep in mind the transaction fees for Ethereum right now are around $0.38 and would be smarter to buy in larger groups than individual packs.
One limited card sold for 146.271 ETH ($60,000) last month.
