Warrior's Way is essentially a series of meet-and-greet moments punctuated by occasional battles. Your progression rate will depend on the type of people you tend to meet via StreetPass. If you don't often run into other people who play Warrior's Way, you won't have many opportunities to build your army quickly via battles, meaning it may well take years (literally years) to build your army and defeat all the countries necessary to win the game. If this turns out to be your situation, Warrior's Way may be the dullest of all the StreetPass games yet released -- especially since its simplistic battles are based more on numbers and luck than any real skill.

But if you happen to have a circle of friends who play Warrior's Way and can swap StreetPass data with them regularly (or tend to frequent places such as game shops and Nintendo Zones, where StreetPass connections are more likely to happen), you can build your army much faster, speeding up progress and making the campaign a little more exciting. Still, building an army in Warrior's Way sometimes feels like a chore rather than a truly entertaining interactive experience.
