  • A great game with a skill based focus. Oct 22, 2021

    By MrThe_Biscuit
    Mech Arena is a PvP mech battler that revolves big mechs fighting in a condensed arena. As a War Robots veteran, I was shocked to see the changes. The fast-paced aspect of firing and running around, (or walking with a slower mech) dealing and receiving damage or capturing a control point is undoubtedly more fun than War Robots’s slow aspect. War Robots is going down in popularity because of the issues with over-powered robots, pay-to-wins, and tankers (maxed individual who leaves battles to lower their rank to reap newbies). Mech Arena makes a main stream XP line that puts you with others with a decent matchmaking system. Pay-to-wins still exist, but are not an issue with the XP line. (Same with Tankers) Mech Arena also does not have the fancy Titans (which ultimately ruined the game), modules (no u I’m invincible), drones (hey look I’m healed at max buddy), motherships, (ez death button) etc; just one mech with 2 weapons, with different energy capacities. All mechs have different advantages and disadvantages, like lancer is great at scouting but cannot take a hit. War Robot’s Fafnir is basically “Shield with deletion gun and speed boost and [insert add on here].” War Robots was fun, but Mech Arena was a game changer. My only gripes are the decent matchmaking (though not as bad as War Robots’s matchmaking), AI sometimes getting either retarded or strong, and the pop-ups. Despite these issues, Mech Arena is still a great Mech battler.

    I love this game it is honestly one of my favorite mobile games! There is kind of a play to win aspect in the beginning but once you get to the higher divisions(I’m division 2 and haven’t spent a dime on this game) it balances itself out pretty well because most of the things that you can pay for you can eventually get through leveling up or events. Which there is some events that have pay to win tasks but they are optional, you can get all the rewards from the events by doing all the other tasks. I will say the currency is a little wack, I feel like it’s harder to get credits then it is to get A coins but I kind of like that because this game is still newish and doesn’t have a ton of weapons and mechs yet so the currency imbalance makes it so people can’t binge play and reach top level mechs in just a few days. The team pairing system is a little weird because there is the pay to win aspect so you can have a bunch of brand new players that don’t know what they are doing they just spent $100+ on a powerful Mech and disc launchers so now they are taking the express way to through the divisions but I feel like most of them get stuck at about divisions 5 or 4 because that’s when things even out so once you get past that nonsense I feel like the team match system gets a little better.

    By far the best robot / mech shooter game around. I applaud the fact there are zero ads. The developers have provided in game purchase, but aren't required and the game remains fun and challenging even without. I've never seen a development team so active in listening. Several rebalances of the game have happened. New content, AI opponents for balance and mech with unique skills allow for multiple play styles that can take out even tough opponents. Great work, huge fan.

    This game is very fun to play. The only improvement so far that I can suggest is to make the battles more balanced. I’m new to this game, but I have some pretty strong mechs. They are just not strong enough as those that more veteran players have & use in the battles I get thrown into. Could you even out the experiences of the battle members, so they are a little more equal? Good game though. I just thought of another improvement. Make the game so players can sell back a Mech they no longer want. That would give each player more in-game money that they could use on their other mech(s). As far as I know, that would make this game one of the first, if not the first, games that does that. Think about it. Even more people would be drawn to this game. I have been playing this game for a few months now, & the balancing out of the tournament battles hasn’t got any better. It’s not bad when you can put together a team for tournament or other battles in the game using your Friends List to make a team, since then you know how strong your is. Unfortunately, when you go into battle on your own you can end up on a weak random team vs an incredibly strong random team. That just turns out to be a disaster that you lose big time, sometimes many times in a row. No one can win points that are needed that way. Since this is a game of competition, the top priority for an update should & would be balancing out the of the equality of the radom teams in battle. Please!

    So the main problem I have with the game is that well not many options for robots I also want more unique effect weapons like a poison weapon or an emp weapon that will take effect after several shots just make sure that it’s credits for purchase and maybe more robots one idea I have is to have a flier as a scout one as an attacker that disables it’s weapon for a built in one for the flight and that can after some time cast a low damage poison emp (same as guardians) but also slows enamors by 25% activates what I call a refractor basically in flight it take 40% less damage and 5% of damage is returned to attackers and it also heals 2.5% HP on landing however as for drawbacks vulnerable on the ground with low health and mid energy capacity but great against high health mechs it’s name hawk. As for a new support a robot called raven it can provide air support and again disable it weapon for a built in one that does low damage but lowers damage and raises damage received whilst it heals its allies and itself as for drawbacks low armor and firepower. Need feed back want your opinion also in chat some guy called SYSTEM is trying to scam us with 5000 acoins

    I left robot wars as soon as I found this game it was simple fun balanced and your skills and experience counted for something. Then a funny thing happened, I like to call it the Robot Wars Syndrome , as more people discovered this fun and competitive game the developers immediately started adding more and more powerful bots and weapons that take a boat load of money to purchase. So much like robot wars, i began to come up against people who possessed a lot of money and bought the very expensive and exotic bots and weapons then upgraded them to be pretty much unbeatable. Couple that with the unbalanced match making and well you know the rest. It won’t be long before I get tired of being fodder for these Pay to Win players and move on to another game, all because I don’t spend half my paycheck or have a wealth mommy or daddy to buy bots and weapons for me so I can feel good about myself. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could sell back unused stuff like the overwhelming number of worthless skins you get free but will never use or if you could actually win enough to get some of those out of reach bots and weapons, but like Robot Wars they purposely put the type of coins or credits you need so high and make it nearly impossible to ever win enough of them that if you want to be a “winner” you gotta fork over the dough”. To bad really cause this WAS A GREAT GAME!

    Used to really love this game when I first started playing it and now it seems like two shots in my bot is blown up die way to easy now. Woulda gave it five stars for a while when I first started playing it now since the last update lucky to get three. Need to adjust javelin and other rocket weapons opponent shouldn't be able to lock on to you if they can't see you. Everytime I get blown up by rockets the opponent can't even see me!
  • Make this game not use space to play Apr 21, 2022

    By mfhdjdj
    You need space to download the game but it takes space just to launch and if you have a older iPhone version like the iPhone six s which only has eleven Giga bites and those get used up very fast by needed things on the phone and game data which you can’t get rid of unless you wipe the phone completely it can take up like five giga bites and updates taking up space is fine because there is no way to prevent that and I know that which is why that isn’t so annoying so please change this and what makes it more annoying is you can be playing it with the same storage at like one in the noon but at like five at noon it says you don’t have enough storage space to play this game which makes me want to play a different Mech fighting game but sense I have amazing Mech weapons I don’t want to lose those by getting a new game so please fix this. Besides that it has good game play but there are a lot of pop up ads for mechs, weapons for your Mech, and Mech skins along with a coins so if it is possible people with out money are just taunted with these and it is so annoying so I think you should do one big ad for all of these things so you don’t have to take two to three minutes just to get to the actual game that would be great.

    Great Mech game with 6 star graphics and play and sound!! 3 main Downsides.. , #1 There are only 2 weapons per mech which is not true to mech history!!(and limits customization) #2 And some 5 on 5 combats end too quickly based on some AI algorithm that the game is lost in less then 2 min when you could make a comeback win! (Frustrating). #3 no way to 'trade in' old or used weapons or supplys to upgrade. (Inefficient). Perhaps increase time limits and access to all weapons, Otherwise 5 stars.
  • Fun game, soon to be ruined Apr 2, 2022

    By Dabstatic
    So far I really do enjoy the gameplay 4/5. -could use more game modes & maybe bigger maps with more players. It’s populated, and people seem to be active. The game does make you want to progress through the ranks and upgrade your mechs, pilots and gear. However getting the upgrade feels less than satisfactory. None the less, it still makes you want more. Here is the issue. It starts with 1 or 2 ads for some micro transaction. No problem, this game has to run somehow. Then you get through the tutorial, and it increases to about 5 or 6 ads that pop up back to back, lag the game, and don’t always want to close. Annoying, but still able to deal with. Now here we are, just coming out of the novice rank. 15-20 ads pop up. Back to back. You must close them all one by one before you can do anything. If someone is going to spend money on this game, surely they see they are able to do so with the first few ads. It is absolutely ridiculous to throw 20 ads up as soon as you log in the game, and I expect this prevents other players with lesser quality phones from even playing. Make a tab for all the ongoing sales, and show the new sales once as a pop up. Otherwise, unless players are willling to click through the same 20 ads every log in or restart, this game is lost.

    BY FAR THE WORST PAY WALL IVE EVER SEEN in a game PERIOD. it's insane. There is a progress bar for you to unlock ingame items. Which i thought was cool gives you a chance to unlock all the items with enough time. WRONG. After they are unlocked you have to use one of 2 different types of in game currencies just to be able to use them. It's so bad that to use a simple weapon you spent hours / days / months to unlock only to have it cost you a minimum i repeat minimum of 10 dollars to use it.

    It's a lot of fun until you hit the pay wall. The developers are extremely greedy. $100 isn't enough to buy some of the items in the game. Every time you start the game you are hit with 4-10 pop-up ads for this game before you can play. Paid items are extremely OP. Also the targeting is completely broken. I'll be shooting at someone 10m directly in front of me and suddenly the targeting jumps to someone 60m away, way off to the side and higher/lowerso my shots miss. No, I don't mean stealth.

    By Fozball
    I’ve been playing Mech Arena since October of 2021. I’ve played it for so long cause… when it’s balanced and it works properly… it’s a really fun game to play. Problem is the first 1-2 matches you play any given day are against other players of your level. After that, you are constantly pitted against other mechs that are practically maxed out (The higher tier mechs are around $75 USD and the weapons they are using are around $45 USD. Afterwards, they spend WAY more than that maxing them out). You can unload your entire magazine on these mechs and only take away 10-20% of their health (if they spit on you, you’re dead). Plarium does this intentionally so you’ll get mad enough and buy the mech upgrades so you can compete against the people who already did buy the upgrades. Also, the bugs in this game are enough to drive you nuts. I have fallen through the floor, shot lower star mechs and they took zero damage, constantly run into invisible walls, and randomly the controls become unresponsive for a few seconds (but you can still fire or use your special move). The best one is where you target someone (using the javelin rack for example) and as soon as you tap fire, it targets a different mech you’re not even looking at. Lastly, I have gigabit internet and the lag can get REALLY bad. You’ll watch mechs start floating through the air or teleporting around. Plarium needs to fix their game and massively cut back on the pay to win mechanics.

    Rampant cheating ruins a great game. Is a solid 4 star game with lots of free to play value (bought the season pass after playing for 2 weeks, didn't feel it was required). Money will upgrade mechs faster but just gets tougher opponents faster. In 500 battles, I've only seen about 10 pay to win opponents that ruined matches. Daily and weekly missions plus tourney offer free premium currency.This is a great game that is ruined by cheats, especially shooting thru obstacles with sniper weapons.
  • Was fun but now it’s horrible Apr 22, 2022

    By Beth0r
    I loved this game for such a long time and got multiple people playing it I’ve spent a lot of money on this game and I’ve encouraged others to do so as well. The game is in such a sorry state I feel the new name should be Mech bots. Because let’s face it I just played about 12 games and every single time my team was full of bots I think I saw one real person on my team. the developers are out to make money they had a game that was extremely fun and a lot of people enjoyed it and now everyone is saying the same thing avoid this game like the plague. For everyone who has not hit that wall yet enjoy your time because once that wall comes it comes hard fast and it slaps you in the face saying thank you for wasting your time how can we take more money from you. I had such a great win ratio until the past couple months now it seems like for every 10 games I play I might be lucky if I win three of them. I have seven more matches to play to finish my battle pass. I am dreading every single game the only reason I’m finishing my battle pass is because I already paid for it and At least want to get those last seven matches under my belt so I can say I completed my second battle pass the unfortunate part is you’ll never get another dime from me.

    Sad to see how the game is changing. Plarium has decided to make AI opponents stronger to encourage people to spend more money. They also increased the $ cost of resources, and are destroying the balance by over-buffing items and constantly adding new ways for whales to dominate. Mech arena was exactly what I wanted when I started playing. Fun, fluid, fair, and simple. Its been like losing a friend watching it change. Idk how much longer I'll be sticking around.

    It's a great game with a lot of depth and focus on building smart configurations. The only ads are for in game items, and only when you open the app and no interruptions afterward which is great. Level design is superb, there just needs to be more of them. There are paid items but I never needed them to progress, skill is more important. Just expect getting things to take longer, which is fine with me.
  • A great Mech battler Dec 18, 2020

    By shadowcat1009
    I’ve played my share of Mech games, from the original Mech warrior to war robots (or as it was originally called, walking war robots before it became p2w lol) to Mech battle and battle of titans (BOT). But this is slightly different cause it’s more of an Esports Mech shooter, similar to hawken. It’s fast paced and the controls are tight. You can also customize the layout of your hud and whether to use and/or change between two different aim assist options. And the game has a radar! Not many Mobil Mech games have that so use it lol. My only complaint is it gets harder to save up in game currency. But as long as you’re a good player, you’ll do fine if you’re willing to play the game often enough. Ive played it almost everyday for the past month or two and haven’t lost any interest in it. Also, I’d like to reassure that the balancing on the mechs is very good, because they can only carry two weapons lol. But go ahead and give this game a try, and hopefully you’ll get to play with the shadowcat sometime :)

    It's like any other mech/robot game...except it's actually good! There is so many small details that make this game good. Every mech has a unique ability, every weapon has at least some value, and there is even a feature where you can run faster for a few seconds! I really wish there were more game modes though, there is only control point, 5v5 and 2v2. There is a lot of potential!

    Very cool game to play on your spare time. Cool futures like what have ben said above this link. I also want to include in improving customisation in the Mecha development. Such as allowing us to change the color of the skins, and putting new maps where Mech can be on the beach battling it out. That would be cool to see. Beside what I just said. This is an amazing game to play, and enjoy

    By Jeremy Kidd
    Like literally the best game. the whole game just has a cool concept. You have a wide range of customization like painting mechs putting weapons on them and arranging your pilots. The only thing I do not like is when you first get on the game you get a couple of like the deals n stuff but other than that it's a great game! Good job Plarium games!!!!

    This game is awesome! The only real thing that I find annoying is that the game will sometimes auto-target someone that you dont want. I could be in the middle of shooting an enemy and the game will be like...nah we are gonna make you target someone else. If there was a way to turn that off then that would be amazing 🙏
  • Make this game not use space to play Apr 21, 2022

    By mfhdjdj
    You need space to download the game but it takes space just to launch and if you have a older iPhone version like the iPhone six s which only has eleven Giga bites and those get used up very fast by needed things on the phone and game data which you can’t get rid of unless you wipe the phone completely it can take up like five giga bites and updates taking up space is fine because there is no way to prevent that and I know that which is why that isn’t so annoying so please change this and what makes it more annoying is you can be playing it with the same storage at like one in the noon but at like five at noon it says you don’t have enough storage space to play this game which makes me want to play a different Mech fighting game but sense I have amazing Mech weapons I don’t want to lose those by getting a new game so please fix this. Besides that it has good game play but there are a lot of pop up ads for mechs, weapons for your Mech, and Mech skins along with a coins so if it is possible people with out money are just taunted with these and it is so annoying so I think you should do one big ad for all of these things so you don’t have to take two to three minutes just to get to the actual game that would be great.

    Great Mech game with 6 star graphics and play and sound!! 3 main Downsides.. , #1 There are only 2 weapons per mech which is not true to mech history!!(and limits customization) #2 And some 5 on 5 combats end too quickly based on some AI algorithm that the game is lost in less then 2 min when you could make a comeback win! (Frustrating). #3 no way to 'trade in' old or used weapons or supplys to upgrade. (Inefficient). Perhaps increase time limits and access to all weapons, Otherwise 5 stars.
  • Good Game but Needs Tweaking Sep 17, 2021

    By Ashton Martinez (Trance)
    After playing Mech arena for a few weeks, close to a month. I can honestly say this is one of my favorite mobile games but just because it is one of my favorites doesn’t mean I’m gonna say it doesn’t have flaws. Let’s start off with the good though, for starters it gives you a really good tutorial and some great mechs to start off with. While paragon might not be the best he is common and easy to upgrade. Juggernaut has the highest HP of any tank Mech when fully maxed out and as you progress you’ll be able to get there. Panther has one of the greatest universal shields and Killshot can deal a lot of damage early to late game. However, most people buy the packs for more expensive mechs like Guardian, Ares, Zephyr, and etc. this makes it really easy for them to overpower you in the early to mid game. But unless you have boatloads of cash to spend you do hit a wall. Tournament will allow free to play players who grind smarter not harder to earn a coins and credits to catch up to these whales. And some of the Mech abilities last way to long Zephyr mostly. With a few tweaks to some mechs, or even overhauling paragon to have a better ability I think that this game can be a fun experience for everyone.
  • A step in a better direction Feb 11, 2022

    By Corporal_Heath45
    From making mech combat more efficient, simpler, and faster-paced, Plarium has not only cleverly merged the best of Games like Valorant and War Robots, but have successfully made it feel almost realistic. If that’s not enough, creativity here is often a lot more open than just slapping the biggest and baddest looking guns on the biggest and fastest and toughest mech. That said, the game isn’t perfect. There is no good means of communicating with teammates, even though this game is structured like tactical strategic games. Perhaps this is a premium benefit, but then the game would only be tactical for premium members. Finally, some weapons are incredibly overpowered, the Arc Torrent being a prime example. Others seem too underpowered in the later game to have any noteworthy effect on the battles. So while I have firmly converted from War Robots to Mech Arena, these two things keep me from giving this the review I believe it otherwise deserves. This game is truly a people’s game. You will win by skill and knowing your mechs and your maps, not bu cash whaling. So despite the four stars, it’s still definitely worth playing it. Excellence is rewarded, not lining the developers’ pockets.

    I have really enjoyed the game play and flow of combat with this game. The mech limits feels like it keeps it fairly balanced and the mat he's seem to last just long enough. My only issue with the game is the Micro transactions. The prices on them are severely disproportionate, there are too many diffrent currencies and real world money cost for certain things are absolutely abysmal. I would love to spend money to support this game as I really enjoy it but I won't at those prices.
  • Balanced??? Dec 25, 2021

    By CaptainCorsair
    I like these kinda games as much as the next guy. I’ll even put some money down occasionally. But I respect a game that maintains it’s free to play as well as pay to win boundaries. I see a lot of frustration from players who’ve been loyal for a long time and are struggling to keep up with players who dump loads of money into the game only to overtake everything. The balance seems to be moving towards the pay to win aspect. It’s almost impossible to simply grind to level up one weapon or Mech at the cost of 2,500+ A-coins. Like, I even expected some sort of giveaway with the holidays. There were some decent deals, but that’s about it. What’s the point of tons of blueprints if you can’t keep up the currency to pay for all of it? Hopefully the developers see this and find a way to balance it to where those who don’t dump hundreds of dollars a month into the game can grind enough to at least enjoy the game. I know I would appreciate it. In any case, love the game. I switched over from Pixonic’s game because of it, but I don’t want it to fallow their lead, cause you just end up losing an important fan base.

    By Binary Recoil
    I wish to re-review. I am not unsatisfied by the game despite the rather extreme difficulty curve spikes. I am enjoying the in game events. Also, I am sad that I didn't get to take advantage of The Quartering deal (I just heard about it yesterday) but only the custom skin & chance to back up Jeremy were the appealing part to me. It was just a rookie mech skin.
  • Great game, some sandbox problems Mar 25, 2022

    By Chase kerrrrrrr
    Many of you I’m guessing came from war robots. I played that game for years and came to love it, but with unbalanced sandboxes that made it impossible for you to compete or do anything and extremely bad ptw/matchmaking problems. I quickly fell out of love with the game. Then I saw this game, its fast paced which allows for a lot of fun engagements and has a progress path that keeps things much more balanced, except for a few things. Best example are the lock-on weapons and mostly the javelins. I’m around 1300 power so I don’t know if it changes as you get higher but as of now the lock on weapons are extremely unbalanced. You can sit in the back of the map or behind walls and consistently one shot people without them being able to do anything. This extremely frustrating to play against and without any cover or shields. Is almost impossible to dodge. Besides these problems the game feels great and the sandbox is great. But a nerf to the javelins and lock on weapons is heavily needed
  • Uneven battles Dec 31, 2021

    By 1Tomek1
    This game is very fun to play. The only improvement so far that I can suggest is to make the battles more balanced. I’m new to this game, but I have some pretty strong mechs. They are just not strong enough as those that more veteran players have & use in the battles I get thrown into. Could you even out the experiences of the battle members, so they are a little more equal? Good game though. I just thought of another improvement. Make the game so players can sell back a Mech they no longer want. That would give each player more in-game money that they could use on their other mech(s). As far as I know, that would make this game one of the first, if not the first, games that does that. Think about it. Even more people would be drawn to this game. I have been playing this game for a few months now, & the balancing out of the tournament battles hasn’t got any better. It’s not bad when you can put together a team for tournament or other battles in the game using your Friends List to make a team, since then you know how strong your is. Unfortunately, when you go into battle on your own you can end up on a weak random team vs an incredibly strong random team. That just turns out to be a disaster that you lose big time, sometimes many times in a row. No one can win points that are needed that way. Since this is a game of competition, the top priority for an update should & would be balancing out the of the equality of the radom teams in battle. Please!
  • WAS a great game Nov 26, 2021

    By ziggy1960
    I left robot wars as soon as I found this game it was simple fun balanced and your skills and experience counted for something. Then a funny thing happened, I like to call it the Robot Wars Syndrome , as more people discovered this fun and competitive game the developers immediately started adding more and more powerful bots and weapons that take a boat load of money to purchase. So much like robot wars, i began to come up against people who possessed a lot of money and bought the very expensive and exotic bots and weapons then upgraded them to be pretty much unbeatable. Couple that with the unbalanced match making and well you know the rest. It won’t be long before I get tired of being fodder for these Pay to Win players and move on to another game, all because I don’t spend half my paycheck or have a wealth mommy or daddy to buy bots and weapons for me so I can feel good about myself. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could sell back unused stuff like the overwhelming number of worthless skins you get free but will never use or if you could actually win enough to get some of those out of reach bots and weapons, but like Robot Wars they purposely put the type of coins or credits you need so high and make it nearly impossible to ever win enough of them that if you want to be a “winner” you gotta fork over the dough”. To bad really cause this WAS A GREAT GAME!

    Used to really love this game when I first started playing it and now it seems like two shots in my bot is blown up die way to easy now. Woulda gave it five stars for a while when I first started playing it now since the last update lucky to get three. Need to adjust javelin and other rocket weapons opponent shouldn't be able to lock on to you if they can't see you. Everytime I get blown up by rockets the opponent can't even see me!
  • Fun game, soon to be ruined Apr 2, 2022

    By Dabstatic
    So far I really do enjoy the gameplay 4/5. -could use more game modes & maybe bigger maps with more players. It’s populated, and people seem to be active. The game does make you want to progress through the ranks and upgrade your mechs, pilots and gear. However getting the upgrade feels less than satisfactory. None the less, it still makes you want more. Here is the issue. It starts with 1 or 2 ads for some micro transaction. No problem, this game has to run somehow. Then you get through the tutorial, and it increases to about 5 or 6 ads that pop up back to back, lag the game, and don’t always want to close. Annoying, but still able to deal with. Now here we are, just coming out of the novice rank. 15-20 ads pop up. Back to back. You must close them all one by one before you can do anything. If someone is going to spend money on this game, surely they see they are able to do so with the first few ads. It is absolutely ridiculous to throw 20 ads up as soon as you log in the game, and I expect this prevents other players with lesser quality phones from even playing. Make a tab for all the ongoing sales, and show the new sales once as a pop up. Otherwise, unless players are willling to click through the same 20 ads every log in or restart, this game is lost.

    It was much more fun before Christmas of 2021. That's when they started making the focus on pay to win. Before that. You could pay for things but if you couldn't afford the extras. You could at least play for longer and grind hard for the things other people could buy. Now they hardly give anything to free to play players. They have made almost every new weapon and every newly introduced mechs, only for paying players. The way they balance the game is heavily weighted for paying players.
  • May 6, 2022

    By Brian B
    A fun game, but the 3-point Control Point maps stink, and they tend to favor them, as they add more of them than the 5-point. Once a team has the center point, it's over. All they have to do is defend it from cover with ranged weapons. Matchmaking isn't great and be prepared to spend a lot of money just to contend. I regularly get my rear-end handed to me and I have spent a lot of $$. Like I said, it's fun, but also very frustrating and feels like a money grab a lot of the time. They will say that all you have to do is play to rank up, but I play this much more than any other game and it still takes a long time to get anywhere.
  • Legendary mechs/weapons too overpowered, way too many ads, and not enough credits per day Oct 5, 2021

    By ShawnY8407
    Right off the bat when you load the game you are BOMBARDED with 4 to 6 ads. That is way to overwhelming. Move the ads to if you hit store/shop or tone them WAY down. Second you can’t earn enough credits per day to do to much when you max out your team and you get to higher levels. Definitely boost those numbers. Lastly legendary mechs/weapons are very unbalanced. Most of these are really for pay to win players and out of reach for the standard player. The weapons dish out much to much damage and many times restrict your movement or just blast through you ,even at higher levels. Rebalance this please. Then touch on any Mech that has an ability that can literally shut you down after spawning. These players camp the spawn points. The ability has such a short cool down that many times these players kill you within just a few seconds and then by the time you respawn the ability is ready again. This not only just turns the tide of battle, but can effectively shut you down. Rebalance or have the system match pay to win versus pay to win only.
  • It is well though out but… Sep 11, 2021

    By H00fster
    Some of these mechanics are pretty broken. Killshot’s area of effect for his special can hit far above where he actually is but conversely doesn’t effect below him. Zephyr, though he doesn’t have that much health, the range and length of time that he can lockdown mechs is probably a third longer than it should be. Pending on the weapon Zephyr can reload before his special is up. Additionally the pay to win is hefty with this game. For example, it takes 8,275 a-coins in order to purchase the Carbine 8 after you played enough to unlock it. Been playing a little over a month now and in total I haven’t been able to acquire that amount of a-coins through daily’s. A-coins are also needed to upgrade weapons and mechs as well as purchase other mechs and weapons, so to save up enough you set yourself way back from the competition in the game. Lack of being able to upgrade in order to save up can’t be off-set by player ability the higher up you go. Definitely some balancing is needed in future patches. But for now the game is a blast and most folks who dump cash into it aren’t that good.
  • Good game but… Feb 7, 2022

    By spend28
    First off, this game became of interest to me after spending lots of time and money playing that other robot game (you know the one). There are numerous differences between the two, and each stands up as a decent game on their own. However, I’ve been playing Mech Arena for enough time now to know where it’s headed and I’m not pleased. What will likely bring my departure from the game is it’s current trajectory. The new pilot and implant features have brought with them two new currencies to the game. It was the same thing with the other game. Pilots, drones, chips, titans, motherships. All that junk nobody asked for yet is going to be needed to succeed and progress effectively is ushered in with new ways to acquire them. Namely new coins and currency. There will be more down the pipeline I’m sure. Which at some point soon will be leaving this game too. I get that they have to generate revenue. I’m not adverse to dropping some coin for something I like. But because it appears as if they are going the same route as that other game (gratuitous costs incurred), my days are probably numbered here. For what it’s worth, it is still a fun time

    Almost pay to play. totally P2W, also there's like 10 pop-ups everytime you go back to the main screen!! WHY?! Remove pop-ups, add a feature to revert upgrades on mech/weapons to regain resources (a simple show of kindness for F2P) and I'd still be playing. There aren't enough good mech games anywhere these days. Too bad this one has too many shortcomings to be a great mech game.

    By Michael H
    It's a lot of fun until you hit the pay wall. The developers are extremely greedy. $100 isn't enough to buy some of the items in the game. Every time you start the game you are hit with 4-10 pop-up ads for this game before you can play. Paid items are extremely OP. Also the targeting is completely broken. I'll be shooting at someone 10m directly in front of me and suddenly the targeting jumps to someone 60m away, way off to the side and higher/lowerso my shots miss. No, I don't mean stealth.

    By Mike Meyer
    BY FAR THE WORST PAY WALL IVE EVER SEEN in a game PERIOD. it's insane. There is a progress bar for you to unlock ingame items. Which i thought was cool gives you a chance to unlock all the items with enough time. WRONG. After they are unlocked you have to use one of 2 different types of in game currencies just to be able to use them. It's so bad that to use a simple weapon you spent hours / days / months to unlock only to have it cost you a minimum i repeat minimum of 10 dollars to use it.
  • Pay to win Jan 13, 2022

    By Fozball
    I’ve been playing Mech Arena since October of 2021. I’ve played it for so long cause… when it’s balanced and it works properly… it’s a really fun game to play. Problem is the first 1-2 matches you play any given day are against other players of your level. After that, you are constantly pitted against other mechs that are practically maxed out (The higher tier mechs are around $75 USD and the weapons they are using are around $45 USD. Afterwards, they spend WAY more than that maxing them out). You can unload your entire magazine on these mechs and only take away 10-20% of their health (if they spit on you, you’re dead). Plarium does this intentionally so you’ll get mad enough and buy the mech upgrades so you can compete against the people who already did buy the upgrades. Also, the bugs in this game are enough to drive you nuts. I have fallen through the floor, shot lower star mechs and they took zero damage, constantly run into invisible walls, and randomly the controls become unresponsive for a few seconds (but you can still fire or use your special move). The best one is where you target someone (using the javelin rack for example) and as soon as you tap fire, it targets a different mech you’re not even looking at. Lastly, I have gigabit internet and the lag can get REALLY bad. You’ll watch mechs start floating through the air or teleporting around. Plarium needs to fix their game and massively cut back on the pay to win mechanics.

    Rampant cheating ruins a great game. Is a solid 4 star game with lots of free to play value (bought the season pass after playing for 2 weeks, didn't feel it was required). Money will upgrade mechs faster but just gets tougher opponents faster. In 500 battles, I've only seen about 10 pay to win opponents that ruined matches. Daily and weekly missions plus tourney offer free premium currency.This is a great game that is ruined by cheats, especially shooting thru obstacles with sniper weapons.
  • Was fun but now it’s horrible Apr 22, 2022

    By Beth0r
    I loved this game for such a long time and got multiple people playing it I’ve spent a lot of money on this game and I’ve encouraged others to do so as well. The game is in such a sorry state I feel the new name should be Mech bots. Because let’s face it I just played about 12 games and every single time my team was full of bots I think I saw one real person on my team. the developers are out to make money they had a game that was extremely fun and a lot of people enjoyed it and now everyone is saying the same thing avoid this game like the plague. For everyone who has not hit that wall yet enjoy your time because once that wall comes it comes hard fast and it slaps you in the face saying thank you for wasting your time how can we take more money from you. I had such a great win ratio until the past couple months now it seems like for every 10 games I play I might be lucky if I win three of them. I have seven more matches to play to finish my battle pass. I am dreading every single game the only reason I’m finishing my battle pass is because I already paid for it and At least want to get those last seven matches under my belt so I can say I completed my second battle pass the unfortunate part is you’ll never get another dime from me.

    Sad to see how the game is changing. Plarium has decided to make AI opponents stronger to encourage people to spend more money. They also increased the $ cost of resources, and are destroying the balance by over-buffing items and constantly adding new ways for whales to dominate. Mech arena was exactly what I wanted when I started playing. Fun, fluid, fair, and simple. Its been like losing a friend watching it change. Idk how much longer I'll be sticking around.
