    The tap on the top middle comment was me, and it seems to work by far most of the time at least for me (Xs Max). Sometimes a card may not fully pop up, but it’s simply a matter of tapping again, very easily done. Honestly, I wouldn’t base your decision on the UI response as it’s functional and now I’m very used to it. Actually, that we have the option of either dragging and dropping cards, or taping to select and taping again to play, this is fairly unique, most games are one or the other, like it or not. So there’s a silver lining.

    I’d say get the game if it’s something you’ve been looking forward to already. I would welcome some UI adjustment, but enjoy it the way it is. Though understand that I’m playing on an Xs Max. It might be a different experience on smaller devices.

    Top game! It’s by far one of the best games out this year, I truly love it.

    It’s weird that I have an iPhone X and have never had an issue with a card popping up halfway where the text is still cut off. Love the game and still happy to have it on the go!

    They all have very different playstyle and can all be extremely powerful with the right cards and relics. If I have to choose, you will rarely go wrong with the silent and the watcher. They have the most consistent sets of cards, and most builds with them are viable

    I personally think the defect being the most stable with the orbs.

    Its hard to say any of them are "the best" because they are all balanced incredibly well. You can argue that each character has the potential to be EXTREMELY powerful. Its all about how you build them. Personally, I like the Ironcland, and the Silent. They are my favorite so far and the ones I have had the most luck with. The Defect, in all honesty, is my favorite character, but I have yet to win with the defect. Ive won with The Ironclad (A2 as of right now) and The Silent, but not the Defect, or the Watcher. The watcher seems like there is potential for some CRAZY POWERFUL BUILDS, but I haven't really done much with that char yet.

    It's funny because I think the exact opposite. I think the easiest and most consistent performers are the Defect and Ironclad. The Defect's orb gameplay gives you everything you need to dominate opponents. Ironclad is very balanced and is like the "standard" well-rounded class.

    I find Silent needs good card set up for utilizing poison or a specially focused deck, otherwise you'll be stuck doing not much damage. Watcher is definitely the hardest and requires the most skill. Timing rage and getting a perfect deck are important. The Watcher also definitely needs good cards drawn and planning way ahead of time. I still can't beat the game with Watcher no matter how many times I've tried. You can also die the fastest using the watcher if you turn on rage early and just get dismantled in the first few battles. Imo I wouldn't call the Watcher's deck the most consistent since it was all over the place and picking the wrong cards will screw you over easily. I wouldn't recommend that class for beginners.

    But it depends on your playstyle so picking what's "best" is subjective.

    Actually my viewpoint is exactly the same with you when I first played the game :D
    The fact that I completely changed opinion when climbing ascension just tells how much diverse this game is. The reason I said the watcher and silent decks are the most consistent is that in higher ascensions, relics are a must. We'll suffer so many debuffs that unless we have a good combination of cards with ironclad, it's nearly impossible to win. He has the brute force and the healing but without a reliable way to stack strength and avoid substantial damage. The watcher, on the other hand, has many options regarding damage output, especially in the first act where you'll want to get as many relics as possible. Again, relics are a must later on.

    ME, last night at 9:00pm - "The wife is asleep, ill play one run before I go to bed too."
    ME, after one run, getting annihilated as the defect - "Man, I think I was close to a good deck on that one, maybe just one more, its not too late."
    ME, at 1:00am, after about 10 "one more runs" - "HOLY SH** IT'S 1:00AM??....maybe just one more run."

    this game is going to end my productivity at work.....

    This is what I’m afraid of and excited about... hahaha! I usually finish doing the dishes and some stuff my med prep for daughter who has some health issues and I play games after she is asleep and usually after my wife heads to bed as well.

    Likely going to get this finally tonight or tomorrow! Not sure what you mean as in a total newbie but 31 hours is a long time to get a victory so I can’t wait as it seems like it’ll be well with the $$$

    The most shocking part is... your wife is asleep at 9:00PM.

    she’d be asleep at 8:00pm if I let her. I swear she’s borderline narcoleptic....

    I just bought it and will pray that it won’t crash and that I can figure out how to pay the game with the potential UI issue reading cards! As a newbie I have waited way to long to play this although I almost bought it on steam today for the MacBook for $12.99 I really like mobile games as I have it with me all the time! Cheers!

    Ok, glad I got it. Starting first run. I have to say I am disappointed with the UI as I have an iPhone 8+ I definitely have a hard time reading even before I embark. To me this is a bit ridiculous and anyone testing this would have made that comment as the first thing they would see. I tested games for the original PlayStation back in college for Sony and as testers we would make comments on UI, gameplay, and crashes.

    It’s obvious that they should have made the font bigger.
