Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Playing by Appointment reported on Dec 19, 2020
The most egregious example is castle events. In order to progress through each castle level and open chests, the player must collect a type of currency exclusive to the event. To earn said currency, players must complete a set of tasks every 6 hours. In order to have the best chance of winning the prize dragons from the event, players must try to collect as much event currency as possible. This forces players to adjust their real life schedule to be able to play the game every 6 hours.
Daily Rewards reported on Dec 19, 2020
Players receive increasing rewards for logging into the game each day. However, progress is not lost if a day is missed.
Grinding reported on Dec 19, 2020
Many battles must be grinded each day in order to earn scrolls, which are used to upgrade dragon skills.

Ads are forcibly shown to players that have not spent any real money. Ads can be watched in exchange for in-game rewards.
Pay to Win reported on Dec 19, 2020

Social Pyramid Scheme reported on Dec 19, 2020
