The graphics are cute, if you don't mind "cartoonish". The characters are each unique in personality.
Hackers/cheaters are relatively rare.
The music by Sonic Picnic is exquisite. If you are going to buy anything from this, you should buy the soundtrack.
Unfortunately, this is where the fun ends.
Matchmaking is terrible, peer2peer technology which means that lag is abound. For some reason the matchmaker is still stuck in 1998 whereas it only offers you to search games by ever-reducing selection (worldwide, continent, local) instead of pairing you with others on the basis of latency/packetloss compatibilities and tolerance.
Moreover, the pairing of opponents based upon rank is seemingly non-existent whereas you may face a team of extreme aces with a couple of complete novices for teammates and vice versa, or mixed and so on.
Additionally, the game allows late joins. You may be one such lucky 'winner' as to be selected to join a game in progress, for the past twenty minutes, whereas all the players on the team you got tossed onto have quit the game and the opponents been pummeling on bots and becoming superiorly strong for the entire time.
You may even rake in the jackpot and join a game that a player has quite precisely five seconds before the base is destroyed and the game is over with a defeat for you (which you WILL take a dive in ranking for).
Think of many such fun small joyful defects the game is rife with.
Oh, and it is worth of mentioning to note that the community is chokeful with acidic terribly-behaved children (at least mentally). Which, of course, the developers pander to happily.
To top it all off, there is no semblence of balance. The disparity becoming fast evident and very wide in scale.
With some characters being exquisitely over the top whereas others are scrapping at the bottom. Some of them featuring extremely "cheesy" or "lame" easy methods of combining certain abilities/power-ups to either kill any opponent within mere seconds regardless of their strength/health/abilities or to escape out of any situation essentially becoming unkillable.
Some of the strongest characters are also locked behind a DLC pay-wall, effectively turning the game somewhat onto "pay2win" situation.
Watching plays as a spectator on youtube is also not very enjoyable, barring the game from any possible future as an e-sports entirely.
