Thanks for your thorough analysis!
Sorry to say it is wasted on me. I started playing Faeria, after reading the PT review. I have an iPad air and the game crashed every time during late game, but I still hung in there and was really starting to like it, a lot. But with the new update it crashes even more frequently, so I gave up. It is such a pity, they should have betad a bit longer, I won't be the only one ditching it for something that does work.
But that gave me the opportunity to look into Elder scrolls legends! As it turns out, I like it even better and it runs like clockwork!
Maybe when I tire of that one I will come back to see if Faeria has finally been fixed...
