Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Playing by Appointment reported on Nov 10, 2020
Daily rewards, tasks barely match real life.
Daily Rewards reported on Nov 10, 2020
Everyday you get free items, but only the 6th or 7th day has worthwhile rewards (a tenth of a ticket vs full ticket). Events require daily logins to unlock a dress by the 7th day.
Grinding reported on Nov 10, 2020
Talking, daily likes and chatting take too much time, it caps at 100 every day/small stamina bar, with litte experience per single action.
Infinite Treadmill reported on Nov 10, 2020
Dresses are released often, it's impossible to keep up with gachas even as a paid user. Leveling up has fans setting up automatic clickers for daily grinds. Levels don't scale up that well for unlocks.
Premium Currency reported on Nov 10, 2020
Free in-game currency only buys a small part of items.
Pay to Win reported on Nov 10, 2020
Specific items refresh stamina bars, free players barely get the same items. Users stach them for months before attempting a single event.
Social Pyramid Scheme reported on Nov 10, 2020
It requires 10 persons to join and play to a certain level for little to no rewards, just one dress set.
Social Obligation / Guilds reported on Nov 10, 2020
The biggests groups require users to stay active at least once a week, if not daily.
