Hands-on With Servant of Thrones, The SE’s Latest Competitive Card Game
Servant of Thrones, Square Enix’s latest competitive card game, has just entered the first beta test last month in Japan. As a real-time strategy mobile game, Servant of Thrones offers a beautiful combination of strategy and allows you to enjoy a range of Japanese animated characters.
Servant of Thrones is a new head-to-head online strategy battler for iOS and Android, and it’s releasing soon. It’s fair to call it a Clash Royale-like game. Square Enix does give it a few tweaks on developer Supercell’s formula, You can sign up to learn when the game goes live by visiting the official website.
Similar to Clash Royale, in Servant of Thrones, there is a 3-line battleground in which you can summon various minions in your court, and the minion will march toward enemies’ base. Player can create their card deck by 8 cards, and each card has its own mana cost. In addition, there are 5 distinctive classes namely Human, Divine, Demon, Siren and Undead. Whatever class you choose, these decks contain cards from 3 elements: Fire, Water and Wood, and they follow a paper-rock-scissors guideline of advantages and disadvantages compared to other units.
In addition to these features we can see at other competitive card games, Servant of Thrones features a neutral tower system which takes a crucial role during the battle fight. There is a neutral tower in the middle of the court, and players can deploy minions with controlling ability to take the tower. Once you occupied the tower, you can cast the ultimate skills which can give much advantage for your team. However, one player can only use the ultimate skill once in a game.
I am having fun with Servant of Thrones. Hopefully, we can have an English version. Clash Royale is a good game that I had to stop playing because I was thinking more about spending money than enjoying the game. I would imagine this game might get to a similar point, but I’ll enjoy it until I reach that breaking point.
