Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Playing by Appointment reported on Aug 18, 2022
the reset time for asia server is 3 am, and there are in-game tasks that require waiting time (such as resource requisition to gain either in-game currency or level-up materials). i feel as though if i don't do all my tasks the second the time resets, i will waste time by not playing the game efficiently.
Daily Rewards reported on Aug 18, 2022
yes, there are also login bonuses. it's alright to just log in for the bonuses, but there's a compulsion that follows suit where i might as well finish my other tasks on the game while i'm there, and it makes me waste a lot more time than i wanted.
Recurring Fee reported on Aug 18, 2022
there's something akin to genshin's welkin moon in the game -- you can get a monthly subscription where you log in every day and get a certain amount of schips.
Pay Wall reported on Aug 18, 2022
yes for events such for gaining MR cards -- it's timegated and impossible to finish in a reasonable window without spending in-game currency and grinding.
Wait To Play reported on May 24, 2022
there is a energy bar that takes time to recharge, and many (but not all) game activities require energy.
Pay to Skip reported on May 24, 2022
you can do this indirectly, with rare items that are available to purchase
Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on May 24, 2022
one of the main mechanics is gacha, but its not that hard to get the items you need for a pull. you can still spend money on that tho
