New MOBA Golden Rush Is All About The Bling
Stop us if you've heard this before, but there's a new MOBA in town! This one is called Golden Rush, and it's from Elyland, makers of browser sim game MyLand.
So what's special about Golden Rush? It looks like standard MOBA fare, but it does support four-team free-for-alls, and the goal isn't to meander down lanes fighting minions the whole time in a slow, inexorable march toward the opposing team's base. Instead, you're supposed to kill stuff to grab loot, make your character more powerful, lather, rinse, and repeat. There are six basic classes, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, and monthly tournaments to feed your competitive vibes.
Golden Rush is currently available on Steam as an early access title, which you can play for free. You can also get a year's worth of premium access for $31.99 ($39.99 after Sept. 30), which grants you +50% gold and prestige, and +25% chance of finding an artifact -- which, if the object of the game is to collect gold, sounds like quite the deal, no?

STOP THE FUXXING PRESS, RIGHT NOW.
As for the actual game: It's good mechanically, and fun, but be prepared to get stomped by wallet warriors. (An example of this is my Magic Bow gives me 37ish damage per attack, whereas a Legendary Bow will give you 90ish damage per attack... and it costs $16 to buy in the shop.)
You can grind real money currency, at a Korean grinder pace, but from what I've heard, you still need about $5's worth of cash currency if a Legendary item drops in-game to keep it past the 24 hour timer that's attached (either you grind that $5 in 24 hours... good luck btw, or you pay $5 cash.)
Also, it's not new, Russian servers have been up since March, but the developers lied and said it was a brand new game, and I quote "we couldn't possibly have foreseen how the paid DLC items would have affected the game." (You could spend $40 on Day 1 to get all Legendary items for a given character.)
Recommendation: Pass until P2W is fixed.
