Paladins Gameplay

Paladins is a combination of a multiplayer shooter with a card game distributed by "free-to-play" model. Players begin with a primary weapon, a standard mount and a set of skills for combat and movement. You can also use improvement cards as the character gets new levels.

The gameplay is based on a competition of two teams. Representatives of each group manage their hero with a unique set of skills. The game provides several traditional classes of heroes: Dagame (characters that deal incredibly severe damage), Flank (characters that defend allies and prevent the enemy from attacks), Front Line (characters that primarily consume the damage because they have high protection), Support (heroes with several useful skills such as treatment, debuffs on enemies, etc.).

The creators also emphasized the development and customization of characters, and it's possible to develop them using the card system. Each champion there is a specific set of cards, allowing players to modify their skills and talents. Heroes can buy them at the beginning of the round or after death. The right combination of cards can radically change the balance of forces and specialization of the hero. Even similar heroes of your opponents can be very different from each other.

The personal cards available from the very beginning and improve the characteristics of the heroes, and the players can choose which of them to use. For example, with their help, you can further increase the health of the character or slightly improve the damage absorption. Even during the battle, you can buy bonuses for your hero.

Paladins have several game modes and a large selection of locations. The list of game-modes includes Siege, Onslaught, and Deathmatch. Of course, there are also PvE modes, where you can train against bots or just run around the map experimenting with tactics and getting used to the characters.

An important fact: the game has rating battles, and it is on them I want to focus your attention. To play in the ranking, you need to buy 14 characters for in-game money or premium currency. Before choosing the heroes, each team blocks two paladins; it's also impossible to select similar heroes in the squad. The four heroes immediately leave the character pool; it means that you should try playing for all roles because it's impossible to predict the combination of heroes. Despite all the difficulties, the ranking mode has the most immersive battles. Experienced players spend most of their time here and train their skills in regular matches. It's also possible to receive prizes for the progress in the rating game mode.

Paladins have a system of daily and special quests. Every day players receive several missions, which give experience and gold. There is also a prize for the daily entry into the game. Therefore, you can easily earn some gold every day. In addition to this, if you take away every day, the reward for the daily visit to your piggy bank will fall additionally 50 diamonds (premium currency).

The game has a battle pass, which costs 1200 crystals. It gives you access to a lot of cosmetic items. If you buy a pass once and don't spend the diamonds from reaching new levels and other events, you will have enough diamonds for another season pass.
