Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Fear of Missing Out reported on Dec 19, 2023
Seasonal items rotate out every four months. You can purchase them for both premium and free currency after a season passes, however. There is a limited banner that is an exception to the rule, which only allows you to purchase and roll for units exclusively when the banner is active. You cannot purchase the characters/EGO most recently added whenever the banner returns, and must roll for them.
Daily Rewards reported on Dec 19, 2023
Game has a battle pass system, where you are motivated to log in daily and completing missions for daily and weekly progress boosts. Furthermore, purchasable bundles and occasional events incentivize logging in.
Grinding reported on Dec 19, 2023
Daily tasks for EXP and upgrade material. Simple fights for the former, boss fights for the latter. Easy, but repetitive. Game allows you to skip to get most of the rewards for an increase in energy resources.
Reciprocity reported on Dec 19, 2023
Game allows you to use friends' units that they've selected, which may be a character or have EGO (special moves) that you do not own.
Premium Currency reported on Dec 19, 2023
Self-explanatory. Further confuses matters by making the bundles where you can log in daily for premium currency not actually count as the "purchased" version of the currency.
Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on Dec 19, 2023
Game is gacha, meaning you have to spend currency to try and roll for playable characters. Resource crates also supply you with a random amount of the resource. For the latter, the odds are fairly generous, but still something to consider.
Pay to Skip reported on Dec 19, 2023
You can spend premium currency to refill energy to max.
Wait To Play reported on Dec 19, 2023
Game uses an energy system.
Badges / Endowed Progress reported on Dec 12, 2023
the refraction railway
Daily Rewards reported on Dec 11, 2023
There are daily quests.
