    Coming in 2021. Gameplay looks very much like Battle Chasers.

    So far it looks like the only change between the two games is moving the turn order bar from the left side of the screen to the bottom middle and changing the UI of the action bar/box.

    Interesting, graphix looks much worse than their last game Darksiders Genesis. Looks like a mobile game. Still, I had a lot of fun with Genesis, keeping an eye on this.

    If it is as good as their control of baseless accusations, like a certain guy whose account name was "Rakys" being accused of using a "racist" name for his account name, then the game will be bottom of the barrel tier trash.

    :hmmm:

    All I remember from Battle Chasers was that it was super fucking easy and thus super fucking boring. For turn-based games you either need to go full-JRPG and have the combat be irrelevant digressions between the inane story about 14 year olds killing god, or you need to go full The Last Remnant and just make your player lose every meaningful fight 10 times in a row. Actually, I think some of those bosses took closer to triple-digits.

    They're really trying to push this world as a big IP. I always felt like lol's "world" was extremely generic and just a mash of random high fantasy tropes that didn't felt cohesive at all. But I guess if you pour enough money, it doesn't really matter.

    That's exactly the problem. Game is full of overpowered characters and high fantasy themes/niches that just don't go together very well.

    I mean Valve tried something similar with Dota IP where it's a similar case of a cavalcade of characters with incoherent styles and single paragraph backstories trying to be made something cohesive. The difference being that Riot is willing to commit shitload of resources to these expanded IP projects because they know that their main product isn't going to be relevant forever. Whereas for Valve they can just throw shit on the wall if they like and see if it sticks, Steam is printing money for them anyway.

    Yes but that's not really any different from Warcraft or Golarion or any other kitchen sink fantasy ip. You can tell a good story in an incoherent world, at least if the story takes place in only one part of it. Arcane is proof of that, although I have doubts Ruined King and all their recently announced games will live up to that.

    I won't lie, the concept of playing LoL without any other users is very enthralling, though if it's as dead easy as Battle Chasers, then it's a hard pass.

    so I have had time to play this for 1.5h and I like it so far. As I hoped it seems to be a faster, updated version of Battlechasers. Also it has a fantasy pirate setting which is pretty rare.
    Though quite a few peopme complain about softlock bugs, but I didn't have any problems so far at least.

    I actually really enjoyed Battle Chasers, thought it was pretty great and it was nice to play and enjoy a JRPG (used to love them in the NES/SNES days). Newer JRPG's are just horseshit stuffed with insane stories and constant forced cutscenes...Battle Chasers seemed to have more western sensibilities in that regard. That being said I didn't realize this game was based on League of Legends which is giving me some reservations about picking it up.

    This is Battle Chasers 2 with setting swapped to League with a higher budget and a couple of new core mechanics:
    1. Lane skill: just skills, but you have 3 states at which you can cast them- slow, normal, fast (affects how far back it puts you on the initiative line and how much dmg/heal/shield the spell applies).
    2. Boons/Hazards: they appear on the initiative line and grand buffs/debuffs to you or enemies if you align with them. Leads to an interesting dynamic of having to push enemies out of it and getting in there yourself by manipulating initiative with line skills and pushes.

    Some Enemies have special conditions that can only be removed by lane skill of certain type and etc.

    I am enjoying the battles in this a lot so far, some trash mobs almost kicked my teeth in. Recommend starting with the hard mode or above tho.

    It has more cutscenes than Battlechasers ( those comic style ones), but not to a degree that can rival Jrpgs.

    Setting is a pirate land/ghost island with kraken god priests, angry captains and alike. Rest is as I described above. The only issue I have so far, is locations being unnecessarily big. Maybe it will drop the ball down the line, but if you like Nighwar, you will probably enjoy this.
