Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Wait To Play reported on May 24, 2022
You have a limited amount of Energy to spend on missions every day, but you also get free tokens that let you do missions without expending it with every first login of the day. So-so?
Competition reported on May 24, 2022
There are several PvP modes, which pit you against other players (and the money they spent on premium loot boxes) to gain ratings and gear.
Fear of Missing Out reported on May 24, 2022
You won't skip major story arcs but the seasonal events contain bits of story you won't be able to replay and gear you won't be able to get unless a loot box gives it to you.
Anchoring Tricks reported on May 24, 2022
Lots of bundles of items on sale, and you get loot box tickets with bigger purchases too.
Waste Aversion reported on May 24, 2022
You have a cap on inventory size, but it can be expanded by normal gameplay and unless you are a crazy hoarder you are not very likely to hit the cap by catching up to the rate it expands at.
Complete the Collection reported on May 24, 2022
As of a not so recebt update, it also gives you stat bonuses for each set you collect, both to that set specifically and to everything you own too.
Badges / Endowed Progress reported on May 24, 2022
For better or worse, each achievement also gives you gear, resources or tickets for loot boxes.
Power Creep reported on May 24, 2022
More of a "the items you purchase keep getting outstripped by newer items you gotta purchase to keep up with the ratings"
Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on May 24, 2022
All gear that isn't exclusive to being bought directly for money comes from loot boxes, which also come in a bunch of varieties. Of course the best sort only can be bought for premium currency.
Pay to Skip reported on May 24, 2022
Need more energy? Buy it!
