Arena Of Evolution: Red Tides is a strategy card game developed by HERO Game. The game is now available in both Android and iOS App Store. You can download the Android APK file from HERE and iOS file from HERE. The game concept has been taken from the Dota 2 community game mode called “Auto Chess”. In this game, you have to select heroes, make synergy and deploy them over an 8×8 block field to battle the enemy. It an online multiplayer game, where you have to battle against 8 opponent.
There is a total of 53 heroes in Arena Of Evolution, where each hero belong to a specific class and by deploying same heroes class types, you create a synergy which gives a stats boost to your heroes. This game can be a little complex to those who are new to auto chess games, but we will try our best to simplify for you.
In this guide, we will talk about basic guide of the game, upgrade heroes, list of all heroes, different class and their attributes, and much more.
Arena Of Evolution: Red Tides Guide
At the beginning of the game, you will start with 1 coin for which you can buy 1-star heroes. On the right side of the board, you can see the number of heroes you can deploy on the field. You can increase the capacity by upgrading your commander by spending 5 coins in exchange for 5 EXP. After each fight, you will earn some coins which depend on if you win or lose the battle.
The number of heroes you deploy on the field depends on your commander level. You can also upgrade your heroes if you have 3 same types of it. But only insectoid class heroes can be upgraded with 2 same types of heroes. We will discuss each class later on this post.
Upgrading the heroes will increase their level, stats, and power. You don’t need to remember all the class of the heroes, as after each battle while buying heroes, you can see their classes. Creating the best synergy with your heroes is most important in this game.
While battling with enemy sometimes you will get some items as drop, you can equip those items to your heroes to increase their stats and make them stronger. To collect items, tap on them as soon as they drop. During the battle, you can see the energy your heroes make at the left top corner of the game screen.
If you don’t want a certain low-level hero later in-game, you can sell them by selecting the hero and tapping on the left bin icon. After selling, you will get coins according to the level of that particular hero. If you get a hero while re-rolling but doesn’t have enough coins to buy it, you can lock the re-rolling option so that the next round you get the same choice of heroes. To lock your re-roll, open the hero shop by tapping on the cart icon at the right-bottom corner of the screen and there select the lock icon at the right side of the game screen.
Note- The most important tip of the game is that you always check out your opponent’s field and heroes. If all the players are using the same class or type of heroes, you will not get a lot to upgrade it to level 3. Similarly vice-versa, if most of the players are not using the hero, you can buy them and will get a lot during re-rolling and it will easier to make it level 3. In the picture, you can find the numbers at the top right corner of the hero portrait. There can be only that many time a hero is available to in store for all 8 players.
