#49 - Realm Royale (PS4)
6th of 2019
"Your Royal Eggsellence"
"Earn all trophies in the game."
Despite the rather obivous rough edges and well - the fact that the player base isn't exactly booming with the fact they have bots for a major of players with only 32 or so (typically) players on a server of 100 - it isn't really that bad of a game. The microtransactions are complete ass, though. Yes - they're purely optional but the majority of player skins would require the player to buy multiple 1000 crown (the currency) packs. Regardless of the transactions - gameplay is mostly solid with the exception of bugs like getting stuck or the worse bug to have occured to me was the inability to shoot, use abilities or heal/armor up towards the end of a game. The developers seem keen to give this game a fighting chance in the suddenly saturated market of BR games but the likely hood of it reaching any level of popularity akeen to Fortnite or Apex Legends is impossible with the current development/decisions being made by the team behind this not so bad game. It could be better - but the developers aren't going to let it get any better.
Trophies are relatively simple - with the exception of "Absolute Unit" which requires you to win a squad game with all 4 players still standing. This isn't the worse since you can just revive people at the forge if needs be but... the issue is rather getting all 4 players to actually jump together, stay together and well - work together in fights. I managed to do this after many disconnections from games where people just seperated completely or didn't even jump off the damn aircraft. Highly recommend using the boosting/cooperative sessions feature for this trophy alone.
Difficulty - 4/10 (Rather Simple with only 1 tricky trophy that requires competent players)
Enjoyment - 7/10 (Surprisingly fun and solid gameplay - though the microtransactions and development "roadmap" seems a bit off as of currently)
