Con May feel pay to win
Collecting cards in the game can be difficult as no single card can be purchases, you can only get cards in packs that either cost real money or earned in game currency, which takes time and grinding to earn. This is exasperated by the fact that there is no secondary market where people can sell cards.
Con Few players
Very few play this game.
Con Developer has given up
Almost shut down 3 months ago, now the guy running the community is the only one doing anything
Con Relies too much on a luck based system
The mechanics of the game rely too much on luck for card draws both in the communal deck and personal.
Con Card art lacks polish
A lot of the card art is poorly designed with some of it even looking unfinished.
