Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great game

Game's great no ads (at least in my region) no Pay to win, you can easily have fun playing without and in app purchases. But there's one problem, the game is extremely addictive I'm glued to the game myself, it's really fun and enjoyable. No cons besides it being addictive beyond belief

Don't let your kids play if you can help it

I've never played this game myself, but my rating is based off the negative effect it has on my 13 yrs old son. My 13 yrs old is a casual mobile game player, he is always calm until he started playing this BS (no pun intended lol). I would hear him yelling and screaming in his room, seemingly at his teammates (again I don't know how the game is played)? Sometimes he would get so frustrated he'd started kicking the furnitures in his room, he even kicked in the drywall in our basement one time and made a hole. After that I lost my shit and banned this BS, via the Family Link app installed on my kids phone. He's been fine since, although he'd ask me to unban the game every now and then. I made myself clear unequivocally that that BS is never going to happen, ever. Bottom line, any game that leads to a gapping hole in the wall is not recommended.
