Biggest rip-off ever!!!! PLEASE READ
By Rob Difo
I played this game for almost a year and spent over $1k to advance my progress. One day the game began to freeze on start screen. I contacted Scopely support who told me to update the game and restart my device. I did this and it didn’t help. Contacted support every other day for 2 weeks and was told to do the same. Eventually they told me to delete and reinstall the game. Never did they say to make sure to copy all my stats (faction name - case sensitive, level, level of my most advanced wrestler and a few others). When I reinstalled the game I had lost everything even though I was signed in to the same gamecenter account!!!!!!!! I contacted Scopely and they told me I needed all the info above to reinstate my account. I didn’t have ALL the info so they wouldn’t help despite the fact that I provided the details and screenshots of over $1k in purchases related to that same account. I also provided the details of the weekly $2.99 premium subscription charges that they continued to process throughout the 6 weeks that this dragged on but they said that wasn’t good enough. I don’t know how iTunes lets this game remain in the App Store when there are so many similar complaints! At the end of the day I still do not have access to the account that is linked to MY Apple ID which I spent a ton of time and money on.
SHAME ON YOU SCOPELY AND SHAME ON YOU APPLE for letting this go on!!!!!!
Just flush your money down the toilet
This game is fun. I’ll give it that much. For that it doesn’t get 1 star, but 2. It’s nice to interact with others if you join a faction. However if you’re not looking to spend money then this game is not for you. It’s impossible to progress quickly without spending money. The prices are insane and there is literally zero value. Getting new superstars is nearly impossible. Been playing for nearly a year still haven’t drawn any of the major advertised superstars. As said in the description. You’d get more value for your money by flushing it down the toilet, at least then you could watch it swirl around. There’s zero reason to continue to spend money on it, and I have stopped as well. You’d think they would give people value and reason to continue to spend money, but they seem to enjoy ripping people off. Game quality is terrible. Do they not have quality control? If I had the quality record these people had I’d have been fired long ago. Constant crashes. Any time they try something new it’s full of bugs. They still can’t get faction feud right. It’s been a year. How is this still broken? No new game modes. New modes are “coming soon” now for about 10 months. Just overall not a great experience, but I “invested” some money into it, so shame on me.
Don't believe the hype!!
Game play is great!! However don't believe you can get Mega Stars!!! They load the mega pull with superstars that they give away for free already. They have events with prizes that are unreachable. They cater to the top 5 factions, teams that spend the most money! They do events with superstars you are supposed to do mega pulls for, however you never, ever, ever get them and can't do the event. Better games like wwe supercard, Jurassic world, wwe mayhem or wwe immortals. If you wanna spend money this is the game for you. Tech support can't fix anything, just tells you they are working on it. After last event, no faction reached the top prize so they just gave to the top 5 teams only!!' What a joke, too bad they have ruined a otherwise great game! They swear it's not rigged and total random yet you keep pulling the same tokens and same superstars. Never anything different or needed. Percentages are so lowwwwwwww on anything decent however you can pull a ton of everything you already have, all random of course. Gave us and event, spend money, pull top tier guys and fued, right sounds easy, but noooooo. Only 2 of my teammates got to play in feud. Scopely said they will hold and event for non feuders to play in since this event sucked sooooo bad. Well that event sucked worse, no prizes and nothing to show for it. Thank god it's over, wtg Scopely for ruining an otherwise great game
Don't waste time or money on this game!
Don't believe the rating, read the reviews. Is this game fun? Yes at first, but then you realize if you want top guys/trainers you have to either spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars or play for at least over a year or more and grind it out every day. I know people that have spend over $1000 to try and get a certain wrestler and not get him! So here is an example; you can spend $100 in real money to "pull" for a top guy, but it's not a guarantee that you will get him or even any new wrestlers, most of the time you get duplicates of wrestlers you already own and do not use. The chances of getting the featured wrestler you want is 0.03%. Take a good look at that number! You have better odds playing the lottery! The game is ALWAYS full of bugs and glitches. When they release new content 100% of the time something does not work right. Also, when you contact support because you spent real money on the game and the game does not work correctly and you lose prizes, their support team just responds with, "Thank you for writing us, we are sorry you had this issue. Rest assured that our team is looking into it." There is no compensation for the money you spent! Terrible customer service. They are making money and do not care what happened to you at all.
Please fix the bugs that already exist instead of adding things that create more
By Alex Holloway
I originally enjoyed this game and rated it hi but I'm now at a point I'm ready to just delete it I keep getting cards to players I already had and should of already been able to evolved them I would spend money on the game but I'm in a faction that I often hear how they never get any of the stuff they spend the money for so why bother it's nice you keep adding things but from those I've noticed that can get them figured out they just glitch on them and freeze up making them have to exit the game and restart it's like you create more problems then you fix I would like to continue to enjoy they game here's some ideas let us choose the cards we get for characters I have several tours I can't finish because I can't get the player needed to continue instead of adding this outfit crap for characters since it seems to be full of bugs fix the bugs that already exists in like the faction feuds make it to where it's to where we can get the things needed to evolve the characters I don't know how many of my characters that need just one thing but I rarely ever see as anything I can win
Month long Event faction
I played and enjoyed this game over a year but we had a recent month long promotion and at the end scopely saw no faction would reach the final milestone. They decide to reward only the top 5 factions( top 1%) the final milestone for free and gave the rest of the playerbase nothing. This should have been an all or nothing situation. Not every faction has 100 p2p members all handing out $1000 a month to play. It’s a balanced game with most players but to give the smallest fraction the best rewards when there are individuals in smaller factions spending or playing just as hard and get nothing is beyond stupidity. Already a dozen members of my faction have quit due to this very poor decision. And more will probably follow as the main item in this event which was a crate saw 0 of a few specific characters pulled in the 1000s of attempts made. This is across the board too. I myself opened 200+ crates and did not pull 6 of the 18 in this Scopely simply put needs to reward all the other factions the same items that were the final milestone since the event ended and adding the points to each faction would be difficult to do This is a simple fix and should be done
Fun but not worth the money
I have played this game for 486 consecutive days. I have spent money on this game here in there to try to improve my roster or to help my faction out. But as soon as I started having trouble seeing offers in the game I wrote into the company thinking they would care or try to fix it but it’s been over six months and still they have not fixed the problem for me. I have missed out on many weekly rewards special prizes and leader board rewards because I was not able to participate. When I write into the company all they can say is we will bring this up to our team thank you. They do nothing to show appreciation for my individual patience or for the difficulties I am encountering. They will come up with a player appreciation event that everyone will benefit. but not everybody had a problem in the game so everyone gets more rewards and because my roster is not as powerful I cannot obtain their awards given out because you have to win a match against wrestlers that are impossible to beat. Because I spent so much money on this game already I have no other option but to play it.
I really enjoyed the game & had 335 days straight playing but when I got a new phone & got the app again I lost all my info. I logged back in with my FB account but it did not sync up & made me start all over again & I lost all my superstars, cash & coins. I contacted tech support & provided them with my user name & ID but they could not find my account, I also gave them my coin & cash amounts & sent pics of my info on my old phone but still no luck finding it. Basically they could fix the problem because they couldn’t find the account no matter how much info I sent them & I will have to start all over, this was frustrating because I had 29 superstars & had built most of them up with MAX moves & Fused some up to the next level. In my disappointment I decided to delete the app instead playing again because if all the hard work I put in can be taken that easily then it is not worth my time to keep playing especially if the tech support did nothing to help fix my problem
I think one of the most annoying parts of this game is when your wrestler automatically pins someone.......I think you should have the choice whether to pin or use another move. I have lost countless matches bc my wrestler pins someone with little points......when I could have used my extra turn as you should get when you turn a five block move. But instead of the extra move.....you pin the opponent and lose that extra turn. Which now it becomes their turn and it turns the tide of the match which should be in your favor but now it's not. You aren't rewarded for getting five blocks in a row but affected negatively which a lot of times loses you the match bc you lose the extra turn you earned. I believe the auto pin should be eliminated and you should give the player the option to pin the opponent or use his/her extra turn accordingly. That is the most frustrating parts of the game to me. I have literally stopped playing bc of that one issue.
Let me start by saying, in theory, this is a fun game. If you like gem matching games and WWE, you'll probably enjoy it.
That was being said, I have never played a game with worse support. If you can actually get a real person to respond to your issue, they will barely address your problem and ultimately brush you off. You will see no resolution. What you will get is automated responses about how since you haven't harassed them everyday, that your issue must have resolved itself.
The dev team constantly tries to introduce new features, but many features that have been in the game since launch still do not work correctly. There are still server issues on a regular basis. I personally have wasted hundreds of health packs reviving characters on my roster to get through character-specific tasks that have a time limit. After weeks of seeking help and compensation, I received neither.
As a F2P player, I can't complain much about the value or this game. If you are considering playing and spending, please save your money. The pull odds are the worst of any mobile game I've ever played. It's the equivalent of playing the lottery. What's worse, this game won't be around in a few years, so you'll have gambled your money away for nothing tangible.
I'm closing, this is a broken game. Addicted players still spend unreasonable amounts of money on it despite the technical issues, so Scopely has no reason to fix a single thing. Please spend your time and money on something better.
By Me to the 9th
This is my first negative review of an app EVER. I l love match three games and I love wrestling. This should be a slam dunk right? Wrong. The game is buggy. It doesn't even follow its own rules. The loading times are super slow. The bag drops are garbage. You have to dump money into this thing to get anywhere. They have this subscription service where you are supposed to get extras, you never get anything that you wouldn't already get. Wait they do give you a triple h character, however, SINCE TRAINERS DON'T WORK with him, you can never use him to his full capability. That means you can't complete his levels, cause the difficulty balancing is flat out ridiculous. Then there's the master of customer service. Not only will they not fix your issue, but they will also be snarky, rude, and apathetic, if they give you a response at all. I really try my hardest to give devs a chance to work out kinks, cause I know this world is fast paced and always in development. But this entire experience has been TRASH. You're making millions. DO BETTER.
Too many bugs, terrible support, lame pull rates
The concept is great, but the execution is dreadful. They say you have a chance for a superstar, but what they don't tell you is that it's less than 1% chance. Stuff that was overpriced to begin with has risen in cost astronomically.
There's WAY too many bugs and errors in this game, costing time and money. And support is no help. They give canned answers, if hey answer at all. No one at scopely gives two craps about any of their user base. They're all incompetent fools. I really wish WWE (and The Walking Dead for that matter) would have sold their license to another reputable company. False advertising, stealing earned rewards, changing major aspects of different characters after people have spent hundreds of dollars on them making them useless, and countless other stupid things that no company should be able to get away with.
Just pass on this game before you make friends and become addicted to the gameplay and the torture with having to deal with scopely.
Good overall but...ITS RIGGED
It is awesome but to spend countless hours playing just to get a premium pack that has a 1 star superstar when my brother (who is a noob) has 3 2 Stars and he always loses! And I do have a 2 star but my one gold star John cena overall 850 has more health than my 2 star bronze overall 1089! I don’t get it. My brother hardly ever plays and when he does he screams at the top of his lungs about the COMs “Hacking” so either he hacks or it’s rigged. It’s impossible to get 3 star characters so don’t get me started on anything above that. And last thing why would anyone spend 100$ on anything in this game almost all of the in-app purchases are above 50 and are Outrageously expensive for some Trading points the same ones you can get 10 by doing so fights. P.S MY OPPONENTS ALWAYS BREAK HALF THE GEMS WHILE I CAN HARDLY GET 3?!?!?
First impressions are...meh? Then it gets worse
The ui and menu system are horrible, very confusing to a new player. Feeling very underpowered starting off compared to other gacha games like dokkan or bbs. Only played a few hours today and completely stuck waiting on health recharges.
Update: now im on day 4 and see that this is a terrible gacha game. Instead of focusing on building up hype on character summons, everything is based around trying to get you to use up health packs. Want those 3 star match to unlock hard mode? Keep using those health packs to stay over 70% hp! Health regens so slow that even over night youll wake up to people still under half health. The recharge timer on health packs are stupidly slow as well. They make the game as annoying as possible in hopes that youll spend on that instead of new characters. Devs need to take notes on how successful games in this genre operate, not this annoying health system.
Addictive and Very Well Designed
By Jonny etc
I've never given a heck about Candy Crush style iOS games, but I downloaded Champions because I loved the character design from the ads. This game is incredibly addictive, very well designed, has tons of features and is exceptionally good at making you spend money. If you're a wrestling fan and are prone to in app purchases, you may want to steer clear of this one because it will cost you.
It has an expansive roster of wrestlers from different eras, the special events are fun, and the game does a better job of paying attention to wrestler move sets than most platform games. If you love wasting time and wrestling, then this is the game for you.
After playing since the game left beta.
So here’s the thing, the game is fun and it’s great if you’re a fan of WWE. The company who makes the game is the problem. They make it a cash grab at any chance they can get. For example, a few months back they held an in game event with milestone rewards to get a 3 Star bronze Papa Shango character for anyone who reached the top milestone. Now, by comparison, 3 Star bronze wasn’t even the top level. Past that was 3 Star silver, then 3 Star gold. The only way to get points in the event was to spend real money. To reach that milestone, you had to spend $400. Yes, you read that right. Four. Hundred. Dollars. And you didn’t even get a 3 Star gold character out of it. I’m sorry, but any company charging the price of a brand new video game system to get a character that isn’t even at the strongest level is absolute crap. Do yourselves a favor and don’t buy into it, no matter how much you love wrestling.
These Guys Prey on the Fans
I love the matching puzzle games and I'm a fan of the WWE, so I thought it a great fit. And while I do enjoy the game for it's nostalgia gameplay, I will admit that they make it incredibly hard to advance your characters without spending real money. And I'm not talking about a few bucks. You LITERALLY have to spend hundreds of dollars to even have a shot in hell at obtaining items you need. Don't even TRY to pull for a special wrestler that becomes available. It is no secret that the odds of pulling a FEATURED superstar are around .03%. That's absurd and predatory. If you don't have a lot of disposable income, this game is not for you. And Scopely is well aware of the anger from the player base. Their response? Utter silence followed by more price hikes and further reduction in the odds percentages.
They are a predatory company, plain and simple. But idiots are born every day... and eventually they come right to this game.
Check out Facebook, Twitter, or Reddit and see for yourself how much it stinks.
Scopely truly stinks. Bugs of various kinds in literally every event they roll out. Faction feuds still don’t function properly. Plus the big cash spending factions win every time. Items for purchase are expensive with poor odds of “getting something good.” Pulling fresh superstars is painfully frustrating. I had a friend who spent $600 trying to pull a Macho Man and didn't get him. It’s unreal what a ripoff the game is. Customer service sends out automated responses or straight up doesn’t care. Incredulous greed displayed by Scopely. It’s a poorly maintained game that takes in players money and gives little in return. I only play because I invested so much time and cash into it. It’s a real shame. The game is fun but the biggest cash grab I’ve ever seen. Good luck.
Fun game, but.....
By Robert Is Awesome !!
I really like this game. The down side is getting a three star to drop. Also, it will take a while before you can level a wrestler up. It is fun for the wrestling fan. I love that the older superstars are in this game as well as the newest ones. There is no woman’s division.
Would be nice if they had Chyna, Trish, Lita, Mickie James, etc....
That is why I gave it four stars. It is fun and can be addictive. Hope they add other wrestlers not in the game like Brutus the barber Beefcake, Ricky Steamboat, a woman’s division and a tag team division. Demolition, the Killer Bees, etc would be really awesome. Maybe adding titles to try to win too or special events like Wrestlemania ! I have a lot more ideas, but time will tell if this game improves......
Loaded with bugs. Terrible customer service.
Seriously, don't waste your time. I started playing this game back in February of this year and I've put up with a lot of crap over the past several months. Servers crashing, not receiving rewards for winning matches, glitches galore and anything you gain off a glitch gets rolled back and taken from your account like its the user's fault that Scopely employs such incompetent and inept software programmers. The way this "company" goes about their day is really laughable when you observe the way they respond and handle issues with the game and player complaints. It was a good ride while it lasted but it's time to hop off this beater. There are many other viable iOS games. I highly recommend staying away from this trash and any other Scopely products if you want to save yourself some anger and disappointment.
Pros & Cons
Good Game... I enjoy it a lot. Play it off and on throughout the day. Love the style of the game and the novelty.
I've encountered 4 bugs... reached out to Customer Service about one that involved buying in game cash... and received no response! Felt like they literally didn't want my $20! Some of the prices of things aren't priced to sell... maybe I should be thankful as I've only spent $15 in game and not $80 because the ROI isn't there and/or CS didn't respond.
I'd give it a 3.5 outta 5 with potential to be a 5 star.
A lot of bugs are fixed... spent $65 trying to get the monthly promotional wrestler... didn't even get any of the promotional ones... it's a Money Pit Game!!! You can get the promotional wrestler you want likely with $100+!!!! Dear Lord, it's a phone game! Shame Shame.... While I am unfortunately still playing it, I wouldn't recommend.
Had one good customer service rep for two issues, Tony. He was awesome. All my other bug reports go unanswered!
Lowered my rating to 2 star!
Best Mobile Game
Fun and addicting. The only mobile game I've ever paid real money for in game cash for upgrades. Getting duplicates of player cards can be annoying, but I feel it's part of the game. I also love that when they do updates to the game itself, it keeps within the spirit of the original game and doesn't completely change gameplay or your strategy. I've never stuck with a mobile game as long as with this one. I'm hooked and I haven't been an avid WWE fan for a decade. The mix of old school and current wrestlers is great. I wish they would have some of the women though!
This game is good and could be way better but it has its problems. I keep getting kicked out and my wrestlers lose all their health when I get back on. I keep getting the error of not enough space even tho I have enough and just finished playing 10 minutes ago. I would like to pin when I want. You save up all this money and tokens and don't get anything good or get the same wrestlers you already have. There is probably more but I'll stop now.
Black and blue gauntlet still not giving rewards, gone through it twice and nothing. Once was after the fix. Missed out on the premium chips that I needed
Inept game developers
Scopely I’m sure you aren’t reading this, just like you don’t read technical support requests. You guys are COMPLETELY inept and incompetent as game developers!
This game has so many bugs that I don’t even know where to start. Rather than squashing bugs and making the game playable, they simply tack on more and more useless “enhancements” to make the bugs multiple and spread. Was once a really fun game to play and was really enjoyable, but you guys have killed that experience and now have a buggy offering where you have forgotten your customers and don’t give a d*mn about the mess you’ve created.
Stop with the new features, slow the h*ll down, fix the bugs and bring this game back to where it should be. Don’t offer me bogus compensation gifts for your incompetence, just fix the glitches and quit with the excuses!
