Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Best graphics in genre
Paragon uses Unreal Engine 4 which makes the game run smoothly even on mediocre PC and look very photo realistic.
Pro Unique card items
During matches, you gain amber, which can be used to purchase cards back at your base. You have 6 slots for cards, four active slots, and two passives, with a twist. The active slots can also be filled with passive cards. This is expanded upon outside of matches because you can personalize your deck using either the default cards, or cards that you purchase using in game currency. There are six types of cards, being Order, Corruption, Fury, Growth, Intelligence, and Universal. Each character uses two types of cards, with universal cards being available to all characters. Using the deck building system, you can make a variety of different decks to suit different roles, like support or attack, and at the beginning of each game, you will have the choice of selecting which deck you would like to use.
Pro Unique third person view
the camera in Paragon is located behind the character, what makes the game process more dynamic. Camera position is fixed, what means the character will be shooting and looking to the point reticle is aiming at. Damage is the same regardless of zone of hit on the enemy.
Pro Takes skill to aim basic attacks like a 3rd-person shooter
All basic attacks require aim, especially ranged heroes.
Pro Wide array of interesting heroes
Paragon offers a number of interesting heroes and abilities. Despite many people calling the character models "basic" you soon realize that with each new character you find new play-styles, abilities, and approaches to the game.
Pro New hero every three weeks
Paragon promises to create and introduce a new hero to the game every three weeks. Each hero is also completely free to play (if you are new, you must unlock higher level heroes). Sometimes, there may be hero reworks as opposed to a new hero, but every three weeks a change to the current hero set is introduced.
Pro Free to play on PC
There are also TONS of ways to unlock in-game content without paying.
Pro 3 dimensional game play and terrain
Adding the Y axis to the game adds more aiming skill to the game compared to all others only using X and Z axes.
The new map monolith has greatly increased action in game. Still 30-60 min games though
Con Steep learning curve
The card use and deck building takes some time to learn and get used to, but has improved since the origin of the game.
Con Still In Beta
Keep in mind Paragon is still in open beta and thus is working on issues with broken or overpowered characters, bugs and glitches, and sometimes just broken game mechanics.
Con Requires high specs
If you want this game to run at a high frame rate and look good on at least a 1080p Monitor, you're going to need a powerful system.
Con No interesting heroes
