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.

Ruining my life, addicted

I’ve been trapped playing this game and it’s 100% a scam. I have tried to quit but have serious withdrawals 100 times worse than any drug medication I have got off. I’ve had around 10 maxed accounts if I had to guess on this game and Machine Zone encourages purchases which result in massive amounts of troops to play. The problem is this is a tactic so when they need money they release insane items in packs that destroy a 10,000$ account in one solo attack when the previous day it was unbeatable by the strongest player and emperor in the game. (This has happened in Mobile Strike as well with me). They know their gaming community is addicted and feed off that addiction and use it as a way to lure in the mentally ill such as myself especially those with gaming disorder as they broadcast their game as “the most addicting”. I never agreed to this games terms of service which it took me 3 years after I started playing too stumble across. They basically say they can get away with everything but murder. For example: if they go out of business when I turn 100 years old they can sue me for anything I have ever said on the game and any player/person that has ever had an account. They share/sell my private information to third parties and other countries, this could explain why I had my identity stolen. As a matter of fact they banned one of my accounts that I spent if I had to guess 10,000$ on because I got my identity stolen. I was accused of being a person I wasn’t who was labeled as talking inappropriately with some players child on the game and was harassed and falsely accused and denied in any alliance worth joining and every one said it’s because I was this person I wasn’t. That went on for over a year, I mailed machine zone around 20 times sent close to 100 screen shots and they did nothing, they actually muted me for a week for sticking up for myself. For over the past year I’ve got in a routine of staying up for over 3 days playing non stop then sleeping 8 hours, I even start to see things that aren’t there with my lack of sleep. Last year I lost 12 jobs because I wanted to just go home and play the game. Their in app rules for the game are half out of date and inaccurate. They made a new dimension to the game called the dragon dimension which is THE GAME REDONE THE EXACT WAY as when it came out in 2013, but they added a dragon. Yes, basically all the exact same scam exact everything. I can safely say this game has ruined my life but I am invested, addicted, and not well. Stay away.

Game of war alters accounts to gain profits

This game is all about money by any means to mz, the people who play here have no lifes and your accounts are modified illegally to try cause you to spend, the game is a cheat, there is no meaning to the game except spending 100$ per pack, when you start its 5$ thats available, then 20$, then only 100$ packs, the items you attained are used up in 10 min after a 100$ pack and you still cant play, you have to spend 30k to 40k to be a half size account in a year, they always upgrade, always lie, there is zero thats 0 customer service. Mz claims to be a technology company, its technology used to cheat and steal money by lying, mz also tried to sue employees for telling truth and gamers, google it

This title has:

Too much swearing
