Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Playing by Appointment reported on Oct 21, 2022
Has "action points" that refill over time and at certain times of day you can get extra if you open the app
Power Creep reported on Oct 21, 2022
Many cards become less rare or don't have as much power as you progress to harder levels, even if the card is a fully upgraded UR+
Infinite Treadmill reported on Oct 21, 2022
Levels are basically infinite and there's new events every week with even more levels
Wait To Play reported on Sep 6, 2022
To recharge your AP (points required to play)
Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on Sep 6, 2022
It's a gacha
Pay to Skip reported on Sep 6, 2022
Pay to replenish AP (points required to play)
Competition reported on May 30, 2022
Event points ranking/leaderboard complete with tiered trophies and bundles of rewards (that ironically are largely superfluous--if you got enough points to break top 10, you already got enough points to max each of the event reward cards...)
Aesthetic Manipulations reported on May 30, 2022
The characters AND the voice actors portraying them are sincerely adorable and everybody loves them and wants them to succeed (as they should), but keeping up with the content for our beloved blorbos is SO expensive!
Variable Rewards reported on May 30, 2022
Notorious for being too difficult to grind enough materials for unlocking card upgrades and cosmetics
Artificial Scarcity reported on May 30, 2022
CONSTANTLY, LITERALLY CONSTANTLY, there are extremely rarely 12~36 hour gaps between limited time offers and events
