Cencored Words - Outstanding but a little improvement wouldn’t hurt
I like this game and how it surprised me with it’s work. The game and it’s concept were unexpected. I admire that the developers added a feature to choose your own civilization to start with, and how the commander’s language correspond with their culture. I really find this feature extremely unique because I don’t see this type of detail in other games. Something that’s sad to me was that when you choose your civilization to start with, I noticed I didn’t see the Mongols. Although I’m not complaining about not seeing the Mongol Empire as a civilization option, I was named after Genghis Khan and I would love to see him in action within this outstanding game. Since the Mongol Empire were mostly nomadic, it would be just straight up amazing if the developers added that instead of a kingdom to start with, you start with a tribe of which you can travel. Tribes can conquer other kingdoms as a placement of theirs. To be on the fair side, I would understand if this is implemented into the game, it would be considered as a hard difficulty. In conclusion, this game is amazing, but there’s some stuff that could’ve made it better and more realistic.
Ryan_dm - Great Game but.....
Honestly probably the most well developed free game I have ever played only thing about it is it is very easy for players to put to win. I’ve been playing the game for about a year or so. So there is a lot to do and plenty of content and events but if your alliance doesn’t have what is known as a whale or two you’re pretty much screwed. So players that appreciate the game and how it has been developed really get screwed over. I understand the need for in game purchases as it is a free to play game but when the whole game is based around a competitive multiplayer world where everyone is racing to get troop tier five anyone who is able to drop hundreds to thousands of dollars on the game are able to dominate the servers and can switch between them. God forbid that one alliance consists of all of the whales in the server that entire server would become unplayable. And for those of you still confused as to what a whale is it’s someone who pays to be months ahead of everyone else so that way they can essentially one hit you or dominate the world without fear. If the developers would just slowly but surely shift the purchases to purely cosmetic the game would be 100x better. Or even make the vip system account based as opposed to character based. Understand the game is very dynamic and ever changing just be wary of the pay to win system
GrubbyGrapes - Could be a great game but too much p2w
Addendum: I am dropping my rating another star. Seems the devs made some error in rewards during Osiris and gave out more coins then they intended. They took back items purchased or unused coins so many of us now have negative stars/statues/keys. It’s a shame that this company chose to punish their customers for their mistake. I will most likely quit the game because of this; I’m just too discouraged by the setback and disregard of the company for their players.
I have been playing several hours a day, every day, for 8 months and, with about $75 invested, am CH25 but still only at 22mil power on this account. Significant , but not really that competitive over all. I am being held back by the need for gems that require real money to make any significant difference. Meanwhile, as others note, there are players who spend thousands of dollars and therefore have the ability, and sometimes the temperament, to flatten any in their way. I had quit an earlier game because of one such player and have had 3 teammates quit just this week in current kingdom because of this. Some of the events, like mighty governor, are always won by the high dollar p2w. It is no longer competitive nor fun so I no longer even try to earn a spot; I just cower in my city during KE. There needs to be a threshold for the p2w folks. For example, once you spend over, say, $500 or reach 50 million power, you must migrate to kingdoms set aside for those players.
DJWicki - Really great game, but not complete
Ok, so let me start out that I absolutely love the game. The game mechanics are amazing, I love the fog of war idea, and the fact that each commander speaks their native language and not English. And as a Roman and Byzantium history nerd, I love the fact that the Latin in the game is quite decent compared to other games (it isn’t perfect, but that is what you get from a dead language that doesn’t translate well into other languages).
Now, I feel like the nations to choose from is very limiting. From a game about the ancient and medieval ages, Africa and the Middle East were left out, and they have some of the richest history during that time, from the African Empires that rose to power all the way to the Persian empire and the crusades.
Specifically, I would like to see three more nations added: Ethiopia, Egypt, and Persia. Ethiopia rose to power after the fall of the Roman Empire and remained a powerful nation until after WW2. Persia created a very advanced civilization that grew strong and powerful and became one of the largest empires until the greeks conquered it. Then the Persian Empire reformed itself as the Sassanian Empire and conquered the remaining Romans and Byzantines to form the Ottoman Empire. I do not know much on the history of Egypt, but as one of the first powerful civilizations in human history, it should be obvious why they should be added into the game.
cmccauley43 - If I had one wish
To start off. I want to say that I have mixed feelings about this app. I’ll start with that this game is really well built. The graphics, the idea, and the system in game is set up good. I like a lot about it. But, if I could change one thing or even have a compromise. My one wish that I wish I could see is the game to release pure f2p kingdoms but you must pay to get in (something like $5-$10 for entry) and once you are in. There is no p2w elements. No micro transactions. Everyone is on fair playing grounds at the start. If that could be added to the game. I feel like that this game will take over the genre and be over the top because to players, that won’t seem like much money to enter and they can test the game out on the kingdom servers we have now to see if they actually like the game itself and from these reviews. People really like the game but not the p2w aspect. The p2w aspect is bringing it down heavily and players are leaving because of it. I myself am not returning to the game till something changes to where there is no p2w aspects or there is an option to what I proposed with the f2p kingdoms being available, but with a entry fee. I feel like that is a fair compromise where the players get what they want and the company still makes a lot of money. I will happily come back and play and waste all of my hours on this game if that proposal gets accepted.
atishiss - Be FOREWARNED: NEW PLAYERS
I have been playing every day since January—and things are starting to change. I never had problems like this when I started (I like the game itself). I put my devoted energy into building a strong city, and I was a head of a small alliance, but now, especially in the last weeks, other players have begun to blatantly break the rules, and they are now randomly attacking smaller players and alliances.
They justify this by their own rules. The leader of the main alliance sent me messages ordering me to disband our alliance (we’ve all been working together to build this, of course). His is just a plot to snatch the weaker territories. They send renegades who join our alliance, attack others at free will, then leave quickly. We get blamed, and then just yesterday, my city was attacked, I lost all my newest troops. Last week a stalker teleported on the border of our territory, and attacked all of our farmers, he sent a message “it was fun feeding off you”. This stuff is only allowed during certain events in the game.
So yesterday I quit. I disbanded, and I don’t think I want to play the game anymore. If you don’t want frustrations and heartache over lost troops (for no reason), then don’t start playing this game. It will take you a long time to build a strong city, so you should look way ahead before you give up and feeling like you’ve wasted a lot of time (and money! I have spent a lot).
👊👌✌ - Release kvk already
This game is fun at first when the server you’re on is starting out, making alliances and allies as you go for the same goal of taking the lost temple. But once you’re invested about 6+ months into the game, it comes down to nothing but same events that has trash reward pay offs. When compensation comes around for mt it’s always the same maybe 300 gems and a golden key if lucky, but nothing new for free to play events to compete against the few guys that have dropped atleast 50,000 bucks to reach over 100m power with 5 million minimum T5s when most are still rocking only T4s, you need to balance the game out to make it more f2p as we wait for kvk to happen but you keep pushing it back and losing more players on older kingdoms, that are farming low amounts for higher resource cost. Start making more Ark of Osiris for us to atleast enjoy waiting for an endless time for kvk to happen. Plus the fact some kingdoms get bonuses on their tiles of a 3.5x bonus amount to farm makes me believe the devs play on those kingdoms hence why they farm for an lvl 6 farm for 1.8m at a time while we all farm for only 504k on a lvl 6. Unlock merging kingdoms already atleast, so the ones wanting to join the kingdom I’m on with 2 of the Top 5 overall highest power players can give us something to work into play over just lame kill event
gravitydefied - Addiction
This game is the best I’ve played. Not because of graphics or small things that surely will be improved in the future. Because of the base of active players and how serious this game is taken. It takes you to another level, you will find friendship and camaraderie, it involves high levels of strategy, and truly gives a place for leaders to be born. It is a whole other world that Will envelope you and your time. If you don’t have several hours a day to dedicate to the teamwork involved, you will likely not succeed and become part of the bigger picture. I love the game mechanics, however I would say there are some downfalls. Things are so expensive that, the ones with big pockets are the ones that succeed best. You will see a mix of power players, those who are not wise and strategic who only succeed from the money spent, and those who dedicate completely to the game and put effort and hard work in rather than their wallets. I wish that we would get more for the money when making purchases. I also wish that members can share items and gems with other members, maybe make it only so leaders and officers can share, this way the leadership of the alliance truly picks the members up.
WAFP ALLIANCE MEMBER❤️ - Addictive!
This is one of the most addicting games I’ve ever played. I literally spend about 8 hours a day playing this. 😂 there’s so much you can do, from rearranging your city the way you want it, sending scouts to explore, farming recourses, scouting enemies, rallying attacks on other kingdoms/alliances, and lets not forget all of the rewards you get for completing daily challenges! They bring new things to the game all the time so you’ll never be bored! Right now they have a ‘Wheel Of Fortune’, where you can win legendary items, training speed ups for your troops, commander XP... ect. The only time you’ll ever feel bored while playing this game, is when you’re upgrading your buildings and have sent all of your troops/scouts out and there’s nothing left to do. 😂 Now, if you’re reading my review and you’re still unsure of if you want to download ‘RISE OF KINGDOMS’ because you saw someone give it one or two stars along with a bad review, just remember that no one will ever be completely happy with any game. You’ll always have people ‘b!tching’ about things they hate about the game or how it needs ‘FIXED’ 😂 but you won’t know until you see for yourself. So download this game, and come join us on ‘R.O.K.’ 🙂🤷🏻♀️
Ammon7 - Fun with no performance issues
Well, I haven’t been playing this game for longer than a week, so it’s difficult to express how my game play experience will be when my kingdom reaches more competitive levels. However, I can tell you that this game, for me, competes with the best of them out there. Other games I play include Clash of Clans, Forge of Empires, and Last Shelter: Survival. What I like most about RoK is that it gives you a variety of ways to effectively grow your kingdom, so that you’re not forced to “gem” your way up the levels. Other games don’t do that, and have a very funneled approach to the entire experience. I delete those games after the second week of installing them. I’ve experienced no bug issues, and am now enjoying the benefits of joining an alliance. This truly is one of the best strategy games I’ve played. The only other game I like better is Star Wars Battle Grounds, but that was a super long time ago, and I haven’t seen it back out. That one lets you literally drag the fight into the ground!
AnywayZ, awesome game, and I greatly appreciate the effort these guys/gals put into it. Good stuff...
[Wellie] - F2P Players Beware!!!
Good game but the difference of power between free to play players and pay to win players is ridiculously huge. In most events, it’s mostly p2w players who come out on top and as a result get better commanders and equipment. Basically, the stronger get stronger and the weaker stay weak. This game does nothing to help f2p players stand against p2w players. A p2w player can just buy his way into training hundreds of thousands of troops while it takes a whole day for a f2p to train two thousand. Worst thing is you only start to realize that this game is p2w later on in the game when you’ve already invested so much. I’m done with this game, I can’t play a game where it takes f2p players many months just to max one commander while it just takes a week for a pay to win player to max one out. It’s insane how huge of an advantage p2w players get over f2p players. This isn’t going to change anytime soon either, Lilith is receiving too much money from big spenders to change the game for a more level and fair playing field for all players. FREE TO PLAY PLAYERS, BEWARE.
P.S : I’m aware that the developers have a family to feed and bills to pay but it’s not that hard to put limits on how much money one person can spend in a week, like seriously, there are people who’ve spent over $200,000 dollars in this game since the game’s release which was in September of last year. That’s around $500 dollars per day.
Kade677 - Not nearly good enough!
I love many aspects of the game but what makes it nearly unplayable is the pay to win aspects. I feel many changes need to be made to this game, mainly the pay to win part. This game would dominate the market of the genre and be so awesome if only people who spend thousands didnt control the servers and make it unplayable. At its current state its unplayable unless you spend money. Its not even hiding the fact that you need to pay money to win, ive seen several bundles that cost alot of money for a mobile game. I could buy several good steam games for the price of the bundles that only give you alittle buff above the rest. This game definitely needs improvements if it doesnt want to pander to the highest bitter, this is a major problem for all of their games. Lets face it, they make too much money of the idiots with big wallet. I would never recommend any of their games to anyone. They are never gonna change their practices and they dont have to. Just dont download this game, you will either get sucked in (and waste money) or waste your time. Well this and this review was a waste of time, no one will read this and if they reply they will send some automated message about how their working to change the game. Stay away from this game and others they own, this is a company that uses great ideas and genres to infect with p2w aspects that utterly ruin the game. Screw this company.
CS/EE Ph.D. - Unfair Game! DONT PLAY Unless U Want to Waste Tons of Your Money!
I have play lots of game, but this is my first time to write down the game comments. I have to write down this and let more people see it.
This game is UNFAIR and full of the bullies and threatens! If you only want to give this game one thousand dollars, just forget about this because you even can not play or against the real 'WEALTHY' people.
Only around one week, several large unions of these people who already paid tons of money will begin to take over most places. They can get around 5,000,000 fighting power, wasting an unknown amount of money. If you have your small union, can You live? No...they will send emails to threaten you to leave the town. If you play without the union on your own, can u collect outside resources? No! If this resource is covered or near these bad guys’ places, they will destroy your town. Can u just join their unions? No! Unless u pay at least several hundred dollars within one week to get the enough fighting point, so they think u r useful and let u in. These people just warn and threaten players who may prevent them from expanding their territories. It is a totally unfair game and what this game does is to steal your money.
This game presents the dark side of many people. If they get money, they will try to destroy your cities and plunder your towns again and again, and even threaten you. Don’t play this game!
Joey1122323136262 - Fun but cheaters prosper
So this game is super fun. Have been playing a full year and have made great friends, however the developers of this game allow cheaters to propers. Our server has gave the 1300 server in back to back KIngdom vs Kingdom events and each time 1300 has been allowed to use unfair exploits and botting programs to cheat. They have been reported multiple times and yet nothing is done to correct the issue. Worse than that, the service team actually had the audacity to reply to our complaints with a lie. Told the many of us who have complained, who have literally sent them screen shots of the cheaters, that everything had been fixed when in fact nothing had been fixed. So wonderful game until someone starts cheating, openly and blatantly cheating without any negative consequences. And the kicker is the gall of the service team to actually lie to us like we are idiots and wouldn’t notice that the cheating is still happening. Play fun for here but don’t spend any money on this game please. This company doesn’t deserve it when they treat their players with such disregard. If anyone wants to check out this awful cheating who is currently playing just check Lost Kingdom server 35. If you know the game look at the pass level 9 between server 1273 and 1300. It’s a real riot how first they claimed no cheating was taking place and then afterwards lied to us and said it was fixed.
SETH 7 - Pay to win& Greedy company
This game is ALL Pay to win- F2P have no chance Against Paying players, There’s Commanders, City skins, And Equipment that you can only get by paying 💰 They make Training troops, Upgrading Buildings, And ESPECIALLY healing troops Take an INSANE amount of time, In order to Obviously Push you to pay 💰 to speed it up, Troops die when the hospital is full, And they don’t give us NEARLY enough Space for wounded troops, they flash Ads for speed ups When our city gets attacked, Which is how paying players have the advantage: They get attacked, and just buy packs to heal their troops, Giving F2P NO CHANCE AT ALL to compete! also, they force us to complete “Verification tests” to prove we’re not Bots ( so far no proof there EVEN IS bots) the verification Is Annoying and it interrupts gameplay During important times (like getting attacked) And it pops up ALOT, Plus there’s a crazy amount of lag in this game, The main discord for this game won’t take criticism and won’t listen to the players unless they can monetize the idea) new commanders usually can only be unlocked by Competing against other players, Which is impossible ( unless you pay 💰) To be honest it’s fun, But the Wall between free to play and pay to play is WAY To big, Alot of my Alliance has Quit the game because of this) Stay Away, unless you plan on paying $$$, otherwise Lilith will give you NO CHANCE AT ALL to progress in this game
patriot1185 - Great game, however play for the long game
I’ve played this game since it was rise of civilization, roughly a few weeks after its launch. It’s a great game. However, you really have to play for the long game if you really want to get nice buffs. While the VIP system is unique and a great feature, it really does require free to play players to grind out the lengthy VIP levels. While I didn’t always collect vip points everyday, I’ve collected them for over 200 days and I’ve only gone up 1 or two VIP levels. Of course you can always spend gems on VIP points but let’s be honest, harvesting 10 gems isn’t worth it, and the daily 100 gems could be used for so much more. For all the free to play players you do technically have everything the pay to win players have. You just have to be patient
Also!!! If you’re coming to this game from one of the advertisements you see from another game or instagram. THIS GAME ISNT LIKE THE ADVERTISEMENTS. It’s a great game, it genuinely is, I just think a lot of players are discouraged when they come to a game and realized that marketing has led them astray. Whoever is in charge of the advertisement needs to show the game for how it’s really played, people would really respect you for it.
Hashbrown85 - Surprisingly addictive
I normally hate this type of game. They all seem to be the same. However, I find this one is incredibly addictive. It’s fun to play and you can get lost playing for a long time while you balance out all of the things you’re doing at once. What makes this game different is the easy access to boosters. Normally in games like these you’re stuck waiting for hours for one building to finish. This game actually makes it really easy to earn the boosters that help them along. At least it does at first (I haven’t played this game for very long yet). The one thing that bothers me is that your generals can only gain XP by battling people. I feel like any action they do outside the city should add XP. Gathering is a great example. If your general earned a lower amount of XP for gathering, but still got some, this game would be much better. The leveling system for the generals/heroes is extremely difficult. If they worked on that a bit, the game would improve immensely. There are also appear to be some translation errors. I’m not sure where the developers are from, but there are some broken English sentences every now and then. Overall though, very well done and addictive game.
ValynCorradel - Great, but not perfect
You know what makes a game great? If it gives you that feeling that you’re escaping the outside world. Because, I mean, isn’t that what you’re trying to do? This game of course accomplished that tenfold. However, there are a few things I think could make this game even better (seriously good game if you enjoyed KoC, Hobbit KME, etc.). Such as ; if rallied army capacity is reached, the mobilization staged should be immediately cut off and begin waiting/marching. That is probably the most annoying thing, and it isn’t big at all so that shows how great this game is. Secondly, I think you should be able to allow another alliance to be able to use your pass. It would help out with allies and such. Thirdly, some of the amounts of resources you need for upgrades are insane. Like I get that it’s because you’re supposed to invest time in it, but in all reality it just makes you spend money. Yes I know that that’s what the developers what, however for a more user-friendly experience I’d employ lower resources needed for upgrades. Other than that I mean, y’all got it on lock. I love the game. Can’t wait for the new Civs to drop!!
Bloody Toe - Amazing game but...
This game is great, it has elements of other games I enjoy playing but feels almost original. I’m really only writing a review to give a suggestion on what should be put in the game. I think you should add some sort of indicator that tells us when someone is online and offline. I know it’s a small detail and we don’t necessarily need it, but it would definitely be helpful when developing our alliances. This is just my opinion and I hope you keep up the good work. 😁👍
Side note: The pay to win crap that everyone is spewing is ridiculous. Sure, you can buy stuff that helps you grow at a faster rate than others but you can easily get there too if you make the right choices. I’m already a level 8 City Hall and I have only been playing for a few days, and guess what, I have not spent a single penny. What I did do, though, is join an alliance with experienced players who, by the way, gave me wonderful tips on how to get where you need to be before you start getting wrecked by stronger players. So developers, again, keep up the good work and don’t let what these guys say bring you down. 😉
Interviewer02 - Why is Everything so Insignificant?
I absolutely hate resource management games such as this one, because of how common they are and the fact that they are all the same game but with a different skin. Mafia City, Rome Fire Age, Vikings, Walking Dead the game, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, etc.. are all pretty much the same game, so is Rise of Civilizations. However it did get me addicted to it. Complaints
Why is everything so insignificant? When I unlock a perk from the skill tree on my hero, the perk is +0.5% to health of all units. This never makes a difference in war. Having an army go from 200 warriors to 201 changes almost nothing.
The gem mines are also insignificant in this game. Gems are essentially the special resource that can be traded for other resources that are useful. The gem mines are rare and have only 10 gems in them and takes 2 minutes to mine each gem. This is ridiculous when you know it takes 3 gems for a minute skip. And takes nearly an hour to buy 10k corn which is lying around everywhere and normally takes 5 minutes for just as much as taking from a farm. Helping players is almost pointless for the same problem; it’s insignificant. Your friend could be on a timer for several and all you could do is reduce that timer be a few minutes.
yOuKnOwNoThInG0013 - This game helped me
I’m not able to explain all the great things I feel about this game. However I do want to say this is the first strategy game that has kept me interested on the same server for over 2 months. I’m over 5 now. And I also want to say this game has helped me through this very challenging time in my life. I have issues with major depressive disorder and the mornings are especially hard. This game has given me something that genuinely makes me happy in the mornings. I’m so excited to get on and see the new events or rewards. This game is amazing. I’ve never seen a game that gets you so interested even without spending money. Now I personally have spent money in game, but even if I didn’t I would have been just fine. This game isn’t like other strategy. You don’t get destroyed for not spending money. And you don’t even have to spend money. Why? Because this game gives away so many gems they actually keep you in the race for power. There is so many things to do. Countless events and new ones nearly everyday. Thank you. This game has taken my mind off some very dark thoughts. Thank you so much
Kurtpat - Great
TBH, this is a great time waster, although it has a few thins I don't like about it, firstly, the space in your city is somewhat small, making it hard to decorate it, unless if your a more ‘competitive’ person then just maximize the space you have. secondly, the chat is kind of funky, unlike other games, it has this ‘iMessage’ kind of feel to it. and lastly, the peace shields are kind of expensive(costs gems, an in-game currency), so much so, I feel more comfortable being vulnerable to attacks rather than spending gems to protect my city for 8 hours. Apart from these, This game is kind of unique, wherein it’s AI pathfinding is better than other games similar to this. It has quite a few factions to choose from, although choose wisely, as you can only pick once for free, if you wish to change your faction, you need to spend 10,000 gems on it. each faction has its own unique style of buildings, E.G. rome: more ‘advanced’ buildings, Japan: wooden. Each faction also has its 1 unique troop, like the roman legionary(called a legion in-game). I recommend that you should build and train regularly, as doing so will allow you to be ahead of some players. All in all, I think its a great game to pass time.
nathan3340 - A great game but I think there needs to be a change to resources
I love the game and the mechanics and the game feels original and fun although I think there is one big problem resources and how they don’t scale . When you get high enough of a level resources get so hard to get and it takes more time to get resources then to upgrade the building and it continuously gets harder I think you could implement a little bit of scaling to resources so the higher level resources should be more abundant so every time you go up a city hall level it should increase overall resource gain like 5 percent or maybe 1 or 2 percent idk really but let’s say your city hall is level 10 and your giving a bonus 2 percent for all resource gain so 20 percent extra so if you get 100 k from stone deposits after you collect get a message that includes 20 k or you can have a extra storage just for city hall bonuses so it can help with it because resources take so much time to get love the game though and will continue to play even though I think it should be changed the game is still great and fun just wish you would look into my suggestion 👍
CaptainCarlos01 - So inclusive and well done.
This game was soooooo good. It’s so much fun to play, and here’s why: from the get-go, the civilizations are amazing, and it’s so cool I command an army lead by Sun Tzu. Although I haven’t bought anything yet, the prices are at amazing deals, and the game isn’t styled to be pay to win. There is an learning aspect to it, as you can learn about historical figures and different civilizations through a handy dandy info button on your commander, or through history and science quizzes that can win you great prizes! But my favorite aspect is the alliance option. Players band together, and take the game head-on together! I created an alliance for my fellow new players named Midnight Sanctum, and it’s so fun to help each other, and interact. Also, the game encourages joining alliances, so people join alliances you create in droves, and there is such an emphasis on teamwork. I love. My only bad thing I have to say about it is that it can take forever to build and upgrade buildings once you run out of skips. Other than that, 10/10 better experience than clash of clans!
Im just here lol - Ok.... what?
Alright, so overall, this game is pretty good. I have only been playing for two or three days, but I already like it very much. But I gave this game four stars for one reason. So I got a notification when I opened the game. It said: Please verify your account to assure a fair gaming environment for all Governors. Now don’t get me wrong, I was cool with that. I was good and I told myself, “Okay I’ll do it later.” So I go offline for a few hours then get back on. The same notification pops up again, but this time the timer at the bottom is all zeroes, saying I’ve run out of time. So I click the verify button, and a loading screen pops up. Eventually, the loading screen disappears, but it still says I have to verify my account. So I press it again. The same thing happens. I press the verify button repeatedly, but nothing happens. I try to clock away from it, but a notification pops up saying, “Please complete verification to continue playing.” I’m incredibly frustrated by this and close out the app and try again. Once again, it doesn’t work. I’m going to delete the app and reinstall it to see if this is fixed, but I hope this glitch is fixed.
William B... - Waste of time (literally)
This game was fun at first, but the developer caters more towards P2W people. In order to get the good commanders you basically need to pay for them! If you want to level them up be prepared to spends years trying to get statues to level them up or just spend hundreds of dollars with their current system. Like so many other reviews here, if you aren’t willing to buy your way to the top, playing this game is literally a waste of time. Kingdom vs Kingdom is literally which kingdom can outspend the other. Endless war is expensive and it takes millions if not billions of resources to fight, heal, and restore your troops. (On top of that it can literally take 5- 8 real life days before your troops are healed!!!) I get the point of making games is to make money, but they should advertise that and not make it seem like F2P players have a chance at being anything but the bottom of the food chain. The developer responses are generic and they honestly can care less about fixing the game or making it more balanced for people who aren’t willing to spend thousands of dollars to compete (I’m so serious about the $$$). If you are looking for a game where you have an endless bank account you will have a lot of fun here, but for the casual F2P players, it is a total waste of time! Avoid the stress and find something more time worthy.
Barta clan - P2W or be Destroyed
Let me start off by saying that I have loved my time playing this game. I started early on and found a clan and continued with them over the course of 2 months in 2 different kingdoms. Myself and those I have come to know through the game enjoy playing the game and the strategy and tactics that are involved. It is a great macro strategy game.
This big issue with this game that I see is how P2W it is. In both kingdoms I have been involved in there has been a massive alliance full of players that pay ridiculous amounts of money to increase their power faster. I’m not talking about players who spend a few dollars here and there to boost themselves up a bit. This game is dominated by “Whales” who spend thousand of dollars to make sure no one has a chance of touching them.
In my most recent kingdom I had been keeping a fast pace, playing the game smart, and doing significantly better than before. By the time I had grinder my way to 1m power, there were players with 35m power, together in an alliance, destroying everyone who got in their way. It’s just not fun anymore. I’m tired of playing a game just weeks on end just so someone who spends money can render me useless and stop me from playing the game anymore.
Bobin147 - Love the games but have some concerns
I love the game the starting for me was amazing it doesn’t feel as pay to win and it’s great. My issues and problems arouse mainly around when events and updates started rolling out. We had whole days where we couldn’t access mail and if we bought things we couldn’t even receive them. Looking past that I contact customer support they take a day to get back to me tell me to just press buy again it won’t charge you. I do what they say and hey to my complete and utter “surprise” they double charged me then I sent them ss and information about this they didn’t respond for 4 days and then I said enough is enough went to Apple got refund on the double charge but not original purchase. They get back to me today and tell me oh sorry we aren’t able to look through the data unless you give us a Precise time I send them receipt ss and they said those aren’t precise enough it’s hard to shift through data please tell us date,day,time zone and time. I say it’s in the ss they say we can not use that data. Looks like I’m charging back for original purchase I never received. Great game terrible customer support and hopefully it gets better not worse like CoK
Lastsamurai141 - Don’t waste your time or money
After having played the game for over two months I can safely say this game is actually pretty bad. If you are willing to spend $100+ in the game maybe you’ll like it, but as a free-to-play, player the first month is fun if you can find a good alliance, which was my case and is the only reason I’ve kept playing for this long. After that first month though that’s where the fun ends. A majority of the players are extremely toxic in the kingdom chat. The game turns into a farming simulator with all the grinding you do. You will quickly notice who the pay to win players are, and there is nothing you can do to compete against them, unless you spend a stupid amount of money. The game has very little in the way of content or gameplay, and simply cycles the same few events. The one thing about this game that is somewhat redeeming is it looks nice, but everything else about it is lacking and there are other games that do a better job at everything else. There seems to be more player leaving the game than there are coming in, which is saying something. This is just another game where it feels like the developers are trying to milk the one percent of players who will spend as much as they can in order to be the best. Don’t waste your time or money on this game.
they call me willis - feels like a money grab
So I really liked this game in the beginning it was fun it was easy to level up but then I started grinding to get to level 12. I don’t like to buy a lot of packs because I feel like it’s cheating and pay to win. Not a major problem though until someone who is a level 19 with quadruple my power and their 3 Troops teleported right next to me and won’t stop hitting my base. I get all my resources taken from me I was at 2 million in basically everything and now I’m at barely 100k. All the game does is tell me to buy a pack to help but it won’t let me teleport unless I buy a pack and I’m not spending money on this game. You need to change the pay to win aspect. I can drop 100 on a game and do the same thing but I’m not like that there’s no satisfaction from playing that way. That fact that you advertise “buy this to help you!” Is so wrong literally if you fixed the phone to win aspect this would be the best game out there. I used to play mobile strike but the same thing happened. This game listens to its audience and does update often and give free items which I do like but being repeatedly attacked but an overpowered enemy who won’t go away and you can’t do anything except “buy some gems” is wrong of the game.
youngvicsta - Great game bad Customer support.
Might be that the player base is far greater then the customer support. Spend well over $100 to still get a miserable customer support. Overall it’s a F2P game with a platform of pay to win. A Major pay to win with no restrictions. I don’t mind, but the few that started in a new opened kingdom do! I get to push them around left to right. But I openly admit this will run the genera player base away. Besides that, Your making thousands to millions in this game. You have no excuse for bad customer support. Also you need to do something about Players moving cities right next to Cotoes they can attack and instantly issue an attack with no warning for players not currently on phone. When moving cities their should be either a %30 to %60 weakness for an hour before attacking or a just an hour of no attacking. Also Resource gathering in city is pretty absurd. You need to highest increase the amount you can gather within city resources. No one even bothers with those and just goes out and farm. City movement should be restriction of 1 to 2 days. Overall, game has a lot of imbalances and they arnt doing much to fix them prior to favoring pay to win over game quality.
ThorBust2014 - Same old thing...But maybe I learned something
My opinion...So I played this game before the move to the new client. It’s prettier now, same issues though. Long time players bring in lower level players to a alliance to be farmed for rankings and prizes by family alliances. You really don’t have a choice cause if you don’t you’ll be farmed more frequently making me as a fresh returning player helpless, caught in a cycle driven by uninspired events. I brought friends in only for them to get run through the shredder also...embarrassing . Micro transactions appeared to be fun at first reveal truly deep pockets to win. People who want to compete really do need to make alts so they can farm them. Devouring even more of my free time just like a job and feels like a job. Oh and the tactical combat could be improved. The translator is the best feature of this game. Developers need to tear down the Alliance family system some how, moving high ranking connected players out of regular play so they can play out their manipulation schemes at another level of play maybe driving content not smashing low level new players with their steroid accounts. I am also terrified my CC and info has been sent abroad to countries with no protections because of said micro transactions. Apple if you have a soul you’ll let this honest review stand.
Countrygirl032 - Good game
I play this game an though I’m not a real war fanatic, ive played this game since beginning of game. Their are a few things I don’t like about this game, is that the only alliances that actually get anywhere in this game are the P2W, they rest will struggle to level up. The game was created for the money, if your not spending money an you manage to make it to level 25 at the last level you must buy gems or you will never get your t5 troops, an where not talking just a few dollars here or their we’re talking hundreds, because you must have everything at level 25, walls, castle, watch tower which you never get enough books so you must use gems, an watch tower same way, you never get enough of the arrows needed to upgrade! So unless you play to drop about 10 grand in this game in the end your gonna be very frustrated an dissipointed. They cheat you in this game all the way around, I’m talking from experience as I have account at 25 in game an can’t afford to upgrade everything in my city, an very frustrated, I may have given a higher stars except I think it’s wrong of them to force you to either spend money or quit game no way around at this point in game!
creamfilledanish - Not worth playing
I wouldn’t waste your time playing this game. This a rich person’s game. It takes an insane amount of time to get to your higher tier troops, buildings, and research. Two of the best legendary commanders you have to spend money on to get them. Two more of the best legendary commanders are only available in the older kingdoms which they are taking them away to make for a so called, “fair game”. The game isn’t fair because people spend several thousands of dollars a daily and some weekly to maximize all their stuff. Which isn’t fair especially in a new kingdom when you have 10million powered member on day 2 of a new kingdom. Also it is unfair when you have large communities like like the Asian community with 3 million+ video game players that take over several kingdoms. I have meet many cool people all over the world that play the game, but large groups like that only the Chinese and taiwanese to be in their alliance for the sole purpose of crushing everyone that isn’t their race is really bad for the game. Until they fix the game I wouldn’t waste your time or money because you lose to the players who have deep pockets.
GrogroDdelta - I am tired of false hope
A way to make this game a 100 times better is to make transactions non existent then this game would be perfect. I am tired of looking at massive multiplayer games with hope and glee as the developers are creative enough to make good and creative game mechanics that I approve of 100% in this game as YOUR mechanics are so unique as is the map and the buildings and army’s and even commanders everything about this game is great but like all other games that were supposed to be great the game itself was ruined not by the game but the community that IS FIXED on spending more money than the other alliance which gives clans like mine (Prussian federation) (now dissolved due to problems in this review) massive disadvantages as we are outnumbered and out powered by clans that are surprisingly highly organized another thing I like about this game either way I doubt this will be read but bear in mind I know transactions are a valuable income but if you love this game and want it to be TRULY DIFFERENT and a ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GAME then you must find alternative income and remove transactions in this game otherwise it will unfair and above all not fun and that’s what you want in this game... Right?
Luisangel R. - Totally underrated!
I think this game deserves a little more attention than what it has. First thing I love is that it barely takes time to build your building! For example, in Clash of Clans it takes like 4 hours to upgrade your elixir collectors to level 5. Second, the graphics and the way the game is designed is awesome I definitely like the style and you can have a pic of whatever you want for your profile. Last but not least, the commanders, you can earn commanders by getting their statue to summon them. The commanders power can go to 700 to 4,600 without upgrades or any attachments. I can’t fill you in on my experience of purchasing things, I’ve heard rumors and I don’t think you should.... but then again this game is still developing and going through many stages so try waiting. The games instructions is a little complicated and there are many things I haven’t uncovered that they should have filled me in. I always have to ask someone from global or my alliance on what to do. Other than that I think this game is cool, better than CoC if your getting bored or playing it for 5 years lol.
Media-amp - No chance for low spenders
Game is great fun but unless you spend thousands you don’t stand a chance and it’s a complete waste of time. Been on many servers now and always the same story. Huge spenders take over everything and push out all the regular players. I’m sure the devs love this as it makes them ton of money. Best to find a game where if you only spend hundreds you can still have fun and play with the community this is definitely not that. It’s totally catered to the egos of the biggest wallets, which is fine I mean the object of owning a gaming company is to make money of course.
But if your looking for a fun game where you don’t have to spend a ton of money it can still have s defeinately isn’t it. Many players I know have spent a couple hundred dollars only to be completely destroyed and pushed out server after server. There is no longevity in the game for normal spenders. Game caters to the super rich. Last server I was on four hours after the server started there was already an alliance with 275 million power and many of their players had 7-9 million power, I mean seriously what’s the point lol? There really needs to be a better balance between big and low spenders.
Game should be called Battle of the Wallets.
:)$ccC - Awesome, but......
So, I loved this game and it was amazing and I definitely recommend it for other people. I was even into enough that I spend a lot of money on it. It was one of the only games I ever played. Now, if I’m saying all this you’re probably wondering why I gave it a 1 star review. The only reason I hate this game is because something horrible happened It all started on a perfect day on the game when I was playing campaign. After I finished the match I was doing stuff in my when it said I had to verify my account and I wasn’t too worried because you just press the button, until the time limit ended. When that happened couldn’t play the game and it wouldn’t let me verify my account and I pressed the button and over it wouldn’t work and and I’ve been trying to do it for days and days straight, so now all my money I’ve wasted is worthless now. I’m so mad at this stupid, dumb, idiotic, bull crap. If the creators of this game are reading this please please respond to this and tell me how to verify my account
Frisky Buddha - Bullies
This game could be fun but the powerhouses always win! I just started playing and I keep getting attacked by people that are way higher level than I am. Here I am rocking 50k might and I’m getting attacked my people with lights in the millions. They take all my resources and leaves me with nothing to build with. How is that fair for the new guy? Shouldn’t there be a rank limit to how low you can attack someone? I really want to keep playing but what’s the point if I can’t even keep my resources to build my city? I’ve even spent money to increase resources but it was of no use. I don’t want to keep spending money on a game that caters to the powerhouses and screws the little guy. I tried joining alliances but I have to “apply”. Meaning I won’t get accepted if I’m not of certain might. But how can I get that might if I can barely scrap by when the big guys just easily come and take what they want and there’s nothing I can do about it.
If you’re a beginner then don’t bother playing this game. It’ll frustrate you to no end and it’ll be a waste of time. If you have unlimited amount of funds then by all means try the game. I’ll go back to playing and spending money on similar games that is a little more balanced.
MexKid15 - Decent game but.....
Like the title says, it’s honestly a decent game. But it lacks a variety of things. One main thing is it’s nearly impossible to level up commanders or anything unless you are spending a certain bit of money or hoarding everything like a grandma. I am not saying it’s impossible but it takes a longer time and it will result in a very long time.
But my major problem with this game is the BOTS, there is no way to report it personally. Now when you ask “ how do you know it’s a bot” trust me, when they are spamming messaging about purchasing items and such, it’s a bot. But it’s funny how the developer Lilith can just say “oh just block them and ignore them”. It shouldn’t come to the point where these simple problems can’t be fixed. Like I don’t know how these people can’t just do a simple job and ban these accounts on the spot when there is evidence of the player being a bot.
Also if I get a response I will like a actual response not a generic saying we have set up ways for verification for bots not to pass it. Somehow they always do but doesn’t change. A actual honestly review will be greatly appreciate, I would like to wake up one day and not see 10 bot messages in my Chat.
Darkw0rld - Healing changes
I’ve been playing this game for about 200 days, and been loving it. I also spent about $200 so far and I could say I normally don’t spend money on games, however I enjoy this game and the people I’ve meant in this game. But the healing change has me thinking that the devs found out a lot of players use the fast healing to their advantage which it’s a not a bad thing. It means we are on this game for a longer period of time. But now capping the amount of helps for healing is a straight slap in the face to us, they are pretty much saying “hey guys we are lose out on $ for these fast heals, let’s making a change and blame it on bots”. CEO yes that is a great idea, I want to be more rich! Okay so remember ROK only matters because we “ the players” make it matter, we have the power not them. What I’m asking is if everyone could give them a one star and place tickets/complains in game about this we will get their attention. Because there is more of us and with numbers we will win this fight! Isn’t that what ROK is all about, taking control and fight for what you believe! Heck yea! Let’s make some noise! I’m having all my alliance post a review, go kingdom 54, KVK 2 in lost kingdom 70, long live alliance GV54!
katerzmae - Serious and Casual and not boring!
I cannot say enough good things about this game. I have played so many RTS games on my phone and they are all the same thing over and over again. Most end up being pay to play once you reach a certain point and a lot of them get boring. This is a fantastic game for serious and casual players alike. You do not have to attack other players to get ahead. I have a baby and this game is simple enough that I can still play in the one or two free minutes I have, yet there are still a lot of activities to do in the game! It is NOT pay to play. In many games you need gems or diamonds to acquire certain items and it is often hard to obtain these gems. However, the RoC crew has made it pretty easy to participate in different events and earn gems! They are also great at giving back to the players when they have to go down for maintenance. I have actually been playing for over 100 days which is a record for me on any RTS. Definitely going to keep building my civilization!
13344446773 - Will not lose hope
I feel like this game has gotten few negative reviews, and I hate to be the one who writes one of them. I’ve been with this game since it was Rise of Empires. I love everything about this game from the graphics and the in depth gameplay. My complaint is I feel like the bigger alliances are starting to dictate things that happen on the servers. What I mean by that is that on my server #1037 Kingdom of Cassano the bigger alliance 1’s sent out a server wide mail that during Kill Events you can only attack troops that are out in the field and not other governor cities. They said something about happens and it’s reported there would be consequences. So now the server is just basically a big farm I feel like no active wars for territory or governors harassing each other over resources. I have other accounts on 2 different servers but this account I’ve been using NaughtiestMaxum is hall level 21. I also put some money into the game to progress after hitting a few points where I wasn’t progressing. This probably won’t be read but I’m not giving up hope I just don’t want to have to find a new server because I won’t be refunded for what I bought. I’ll stick through it and see what happens.
Anousavaree - Best Game Ever Created!
Love everything about this game. Teamwork/active is the key to success. Free players still have advantages by using tactics and teamwork. Downside about this game newer kingdoms can’t get Richard/ Gye commander; which is kind of annoying for Jumper Account to have slight advantage by getting it in older kingdoms before jumping to newer Kingdoms. All kingdoms should be able to obtains every hero. Adding new commander will be great!!! RoC must allow users to delete accounts or if player quit or inactive for 30 days that base get deleted. Please keep the chapters going in Monument after Lost Temple. Like for example; revenge of the Barbarians after lost temple; like the Barbarians Rally the lost Temple with massive troops to retake it back. Then next chapter after that Regain the Lost Temple and Add Rewards to the recapture of it. Kingdoms vs Kingdoms chapters in Monument will be sweet also. Make so we can build towards other kingdoms. But this must be permanent kingdom vs kingdom for days can’t just be a event. Allow others active players in different kingdoms to play wars with.
Loafer Orange - Please fix this!
I really love this game, honestly I can’t get enough of it. This game is engaging and really addictive. I really love what the you guys have done so far, the art style, gameplay, and everything else is great. The work you guys have done is fantastic and you guys should just pat yourselves on the back. But I do have one problem with the game, the commander skill system. The commanders in this game are great and they are really unique, but the skill system kind of ruins it. When you are upgrading a commander, you have to upgrade it in steps, but the game doesn’t tell you that you have to do that or that you have to do the skills in order. This has been a problem for a while now and I messed up a some crucial commanders because of it like Lohar and Constance. I just wish when you upgraded the skills, it would upgrade in a random order or something. Could you please add an update to fix this like give our sculptures back or create an item to fix this. I really love this game and the work you guys have done is amazing, but please fix this. Thank you so much for your work!!!
EKovach - Highly upset
I have been playing this game since it launched. I love the features and community aspect of this game. I have made a great many friends through it. I have many accounts across many kingdoms from very old to very new. Back when kvk first launched, a group of players and I decided to start fresh in a new kd. Many more from our gaming family said they would migrate and join us after kvk. Kvk just ended for our friends. In 25 days our new kd will reach 90 days old which is suppose to put us in the developed period which allows migration into our kd. But the devs have decided to start kvk in all the new kds on the 90th day of the last kd in each continent. Which means if you are in the last kd of your continent you get no developed period like the rest of the continent. No one can migrate in. Which stacks the deck for the other kds who can have people migrate in. This is what will happen to us in 25 days if the game does not delay kvk. All our hard work developing our alliances and uniting our kingdom will be wasted because of the unfairness of the game. Customer service is terrible. There is no real place to voice our concerns. The game is proving it only cares about making money.
Hammytheman1234657 - Great game
Fun game that keeps you interested unlike some other games set up like this (clash of clans). The barbarian, pvp, and conquest aspect of the game keeps everything interesting along with the level up part of commanders. The quality of in-depth game setup was well thought out and the series of game aspects addict any player who likes games based like this. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because once you get the lost temple, the game kind of seems pointless at that point. I wish there was a way to move your kingdom to new land. There is a possibility to do this but you can’t be over level 8 city. I’m sure updates to come will fix this part of the game and I’m not really worried about getting bored with it... Great game overall!
Ps. Was a great game** now has been taken over by political correctness. My nickname is Hammytheman on my main account I started 2 months ago then I try to start another account and make the name Hammytheman2 and the game says “contains sensitive words”. Everyone is so worried about how “sensitive” everyone is that i cannot even pick a simple nickname for a game I play. Just because there are pussies that support this game. Well I will no longer be supporting it. And also I emailed “tech support” and haven’t heard from them in weeks. Bye.
Oachilis - Boring and Flawed
When I first played this game it was fun and I get to attack other player and stuff but then I went to boot camp and after 2 month I came back I realize I haven’t been attacked even once which is a good thing at that time I was just 5 mil. But now I reach 11-12 mil and I have not ever been attacked for over a year now so I’m kinda getting bored so I decided to teleport to someone and attack them but I realize that it won’t let me teleport to anywhere else literally I can’t teleport to someone else territory and I can’t teleport to a open area without any territory because my alliance isn’t anywhere close by.. like I’m literally stuck here and can’t do anything I’m pretty sure this is the only reason why I haven’t got attacked for years now because stronger player can’t teleport and attack once another. This should be fix. Allowing us to teleport anywhere we want. I’m literally bored right now. What the point in getting stronger when you can’t even use any of the troops. I really wanna experience the same thing when I first played the game I got massacre by 4-5 different people who is a lot stronger then I am
Happybookreader - Amazing but...
I’m leaving a low star with hopes the developers will read it.
This game is super fun and easy to learn the mechanics of it all. That said, after about a month of play reality if the game has set in. The level of real politic that happens in this game is unreal. My alliance was infiltrated by a high level governor from another alliance and made leader because he seemed he knew what he was doing. Long story short, in about a week I found out he is basically working as an operative for another alliance using two account to sow discontent and pull players out of my alliance to a more powerful alliance. So now we have a player who basically threatens all the players in our alliance that his main alliance will destroy us we don’t play ball, not cool. We can’t get rid of him and he basically has complete control now. I have no doubt that this is going on everywhere in the game in every server. I doubt they will, but I would like to hope the developers would find a way to deal with this.
Additionally after you get above 13th level the amount of time goes way up. And those at the top levels and power are likely spending massive amounts of real money to get there. If you are at a lower level, or play casually, this game will quickly become a nightmare.
SupraBren - My First ten hour experience...
Admittedly I don’t rly like these online RTS games. I love AOE and old C&C games plus war craft. But hate any for of micro trans and also online grieving by higher lvl players. So far no griefing. Of course there is different packages you can buy that has certain currency in it. But if you are just semi active, and complete the super easy challenges, that you basically just complete as u play. Stuff the kill 5 bad guys, collect 1000 wood and they reward you well for everything. And they give you 4 free silver chests a day, and a gold every 2. Plus you get free keys for challenges so I don’t think you won’t need to ever pay real money. At least it seems, again only ten hrs in. I had multiple clan invites almost from the sec I logged in. Ppl seem very nice. I never write reviews, let alone one this long, but this game feels like age of empires with a few little touches to make it different. At least give it a try, I think slight RTS exp will help u catch on quicker, but they do a decent job of a talking tutorial.

Kill3r jump shotz - F2P kingdoms.
I have played this game for a while now and just wish that certain kingdoms were developed in a way that only a F2P technique could be used, it would give everyone a chance and would require people to develop strategies in which it would give a true sense of strategy to this game. For example, the amount of commander exp would have to be placed carefully as there is no way to pay for more and sure it would benefit the more experienced players, but newer players would have more of a chance and overall are more likely to continue playing the game as they have a fair chance to upgrade and explore. Now I get that it’s a difficult concept to work with but the use of these kingdoms could be limited by the accessibility of these, for example making only a few servers per week or month. This would give players that wanna pay loads for the game the same gameplay as prior but give a small group of people the chance to have a relatively fair survival chance through the strategies that people would develop in a F2P environment. Personally I believe that it would bring out the best in people’s creativity!
takodamadrid - Rise of kingdoms
It’s my favourite mobile game yet such a good game only one thing I don’t like about it is that you can’t delete characters I made 2 accounts in the same kingdom 1558 just for the time being because I was gonna wait 90 days for the kingdom my main account lvl16 was gonna migrate too so I made 2 new accounts in the kingdom I wanted to migrate too 1558 but then it told me I could only have 2 characters in one kingdom so now when the 90 days is over and I’m able too migrate to the kingdom with all my friends I won’t be able too because 2 is the limits I have 3 accounts one is in a kingdom I don’t want it to be in and 2 are in a kingdom I want my main account to be in and a tried deleting one character that was in the kingdom I wanted my main account to be in so there was enough room for it but I can’t so all I’m saying is that there should be an option to delete a character if wanted and I’ve been dying to move kingdoms I so badly want to but now I’m stuck and can’t move kingdoms because I have the max amount of characters in one kingdom and I can’t delete any of them in order too move my big character in that probably didn’t make any sense but yeah I just want to move to 1558 so badly the migrating part of this game is annoying
Tim Tams123 - Good game but
I love the game I like the alliance system where you can really help my people in your alliance by taping on the help button when ever I help my alliance I fell like I am in a community I like the gathering system instead of attacking everyone to get resources like in other games all u need to do is build an army and go to the gathering spot and wait until its all gathered now my down side is it keeps crashing I can only do 2-4 things before it crashes and often loads slow however my iPad is old but iPads these days are very expensive back to the review also GET new building system I find it's really hard to move stuff around in your city there should be any option where you can remove everything and all your buildings are on the side bar and you can place it all back like dominations that game has a good building system anyway great game good job and have a nice day
biggiechung - Getting there
This is a really good idea unfortunately the execution is lacking. The progression and combat especially need some fine tuning but it’s best to start with the little things. The idea of picking your own empire and grinding away to get it to the top is Cool and fun however not only do you only switch from the default village at like city hall 4 you don’t get troops that actually relate to the civilisation for a long... long time. The best way to improve this is to dive into the history books and find some infantry (archers etc) for each faction. This could be better improved by instead researching to improve troops as opposed to researching to get troops. you could also adopt something similar to clash of clans where you have a barracks and army camp where you can have preset armies and train said armies more to your liking. The combat and map could also use some tweaking like better animations for fights and more tactical options to use instead of just dragging your army to some barbarians and waiting. Please don’t take this awfully long feedback the wrong way I just want to see this game reach it’s potential and become a more enjoyable experience.
Yodathewhitewizard - Great game/bad game
Depends on your style of gaming. It’s a great game, I love it. Like seriously best game strategically I’ve played. I’ve sent a fair few reviews on these types of games and that’s the first time I’ve said that.
However, it’s not the game it’s the people.
There’s “rules” made up by nerds playing in a phone app, usually Rich nerds, in each realm, they want to compete, make their realm great, but instead of unifying they dump good solid people(often more advanced vs time ratio) for server hoppers(from old realms usually f2p that can’t afford to heal after the first battle) chasing kvk prizes who jump as soon as the season is over leaving the realm depleted and worthless... So if you are a solo player with a lot of $$ to blow on server hopping, and with zero integrity this is the game for you, if you want to play with friends... unless every one of you spends at the same(preferably high) rate give it a miss.
And for the f2p whining about spending this game actually works better for you than most, not spending but building for 12 months gets 6 month spender accounts booted from top alliances no worries... biggest issue in this game is the f2p server jumpers in my opinion.
Ciogiizucvovxu - Not starting and crashing!!!
So I have no clue what happened but my game was working fine and I was sorting my alliance out getting ready to attack another alliance and them out of no where the game freezes and stops working so I did what everyone else does and double taps the home button and swipes up right. Then I went back into the game and it started loading but stopped on 74% so I left it for a bit and nothing happened after about 5 minutes and then the game crashed on the loading screen so I was a bit confused. I went back into the game and it just won’t load in it keeps stopping on 74% and won’t load at all I’ve left it for about 20 minutes and nothing happened I reset the iPad turned it on and off and nothing works. I’m pretty disappointed with this I was going so good I was just about to hit 1 million power and then this happens to me. It is a really fun and addictive game I’ve even put a bit of money into it when I’m not going to get back now because of this glitch. All I want is some advice from the developers on how I can get my game to start working again after the loading screen stopping on 74% and crashing. I just want to conquer the kingdom!!!!
uaythot - Has a lot of potential
I love this game I really do. But I find it very hard since the only way to attempt to keep up with other players is to spend. You can’t win any event since player just spend hundreds on this game. This just makes players who don’t spend, feel like all their efforts and time has been wasted. I’ve been in situations where I had to spend a bit of money just to stay in a top alliance. You could go from being the weakest to being one of the strongest in the alliance by spending cash. All I got to say is try making it fair for players that love to put in the time and effort. Why not make a server or kingdom where no players can spend cash and depends entirely on cooperation, teamwork and the effort of each player that joins. I guarantee a lot of people would have more fun since the only one’s that would stand out are the one’s that put in the effort and it does feel good. Not simply spend hundreds on the game. Please hear my words and make some parts of this game fair for non spenders or make a kingdom which depends on no cash but the efforts of players. I hope to see this in the future. Thanks
Chloe 12345:) - Worst P2W Game Ever
Let me start by saying this is the best pvp multiplayer game I’ve ever played but that is where my praise stops. To give you a few facts the best and unbeatable armies are tier 5 troops, impossible to play against unless you have T5. For the average F2P player it will take you 12-18 months to achieve T5, a new server I recently started playing on we have a 62 million player with 500k T5 troops AFTER ONLY 17 DAYS. The Chinese and Koreans spend tens of thousands of dollars on this game and will gladly destroy any progress you make and waste any money you have spent to dominate the server. There is no balance in the game and those that spend the most will dominate others providing your on the winning side, if on the losing side your money is wasted. I have played on 5 different servers spending an average of $500 - $1500 (most I spent) on a server only to be bullied, harassed, & intimidated. Do not play this game unless you are willing to either play for free (and be dominated) or spend $10,000usd to run with the big boys if you spend any less than that you might as well flush your money down the toilet as you will end up having your castle zeroed and quitting in frustration. WORST best game ever but typical of Lilith
Da toddles - Enjoyable and relaxed
Pretty good game. The current setup is suited for both play styles PVE and PVP. You are not forced to PVP for resources, you can simply build troops and farm resources around the map. Alliances and event notices pre-warn you when certain events are about to commence (eg PVP), so you know not to send out your troops for a period of time, if you are not the aggressive type. In saying that, if you like attacking things, but not other players, there are NPC variants which are reasonably balanced but not overpowered. Yes there are micro-transactions, but at the same time it’s not enforced or required. Bare in mind some things require them if you want to go down that path (use a certain commander -for memory only one- and wish to unlock some abilities but need to purchase). Personally I have purchased a couple of things to support the developers because it is an enjoyable experience, especially playing with mates around the world on other operating devices. Toddy
Snocown - Customer service!
This game is amazing and very addicting. You build your kingdom from the ground up and grow your troops. When you join a good alliance youll notice thats where the fun really begins! Keep up the good work guys!
The reason why i did not give this game 5 stars is that there are still little issues here and there. Please fix the alliance chat. It works if im connected to wifi but once im out and using data the chat stops and totally ruins the communication with my alliance. And one last thing is the pay to win aspect is a little too much. I dont mind paying here and there but later in the game i noticed my wallet being squeezed just to earn something. The last event i worked hard to gain these coins. I have enough coins but i have to pay real money to reach VIP 5 for the commander i want? Theres a huge gap between free players and players with deep pockets.
PS. I sent a message to your customer service and i havent heard back. Its been a few days now and its regarding my payment. Please work on your customer service especially to costomers who pay for your services.
Apollo flex - Beautifully addictive but found wanting
First off I have to say that this is the best mmo game I’ve played on a mobile device period. The game play is fluid, the graphics are outstanding, the community thrives and there’s no forced pvp play in order to progress and become such a strong governor that other alliances will actively seek you out to join them and gain even more strength! Teamwork is key in the alliance and it’s great to be part of this game however, this game is marred by two things, one is the alliance power level scaling, one false move against another alliance and you’ll find yourself overpowered and outnumbered before you even know what hit you. It’s depressing to a degree and second is the pay to win (pay to grow) structure. The devs have made the game feel like it’s heavily implied to be a pay to win system when it comes to resources after being attacked, building your city, certain events that run and the cost of resources required to gain rewards and features like cosmetics, golden keys, teleports, chests and more.
Pulse Equaah - My overview and Thoughts of the game :)
I absolutely love this game! Watching the troops march out is great and being able to specialise your commanders to specific units etc! Plenty of rewards and constantly ways to keep playing without getting bored waiting for upgrades. I love the progression as well and nearly everything in general however there are some problems I have encountered so far. The first one is that I haven’t received some boosts and 1500 gems from the o Tannenbaum which was very disappointing after grinding for the decorations :( and the second is when you search for example a lvl 6 food cropland and then right after try to search a stone deposit it will search onto the cropland again. Other than that I’m KEEN to see where this game goes in the future as it has huge potential and I’m excited to be apart of the journey :)
jaccie haycie - Fix pleaseeeee
The city edit mode is quite the work of art, the save button doesn’t even work if we save our progress, it won’t do anything since half of the roads will be going on top of each other and half of the building is stacked with the decorations, the game is fun and have a lot of smart ideas that similar games failed to comply for example taking control of troops and telling them where to go creates a whole new level of strategy. Clans leaders has to worry about expansion because of the bonus resource on the map and you can move buildings according to your taste of decoration and be able create a beautiful scenery of a city in the world. Though this might be quite hard to do but can you add another type of decoration where you can raise and lower the ground? They can create quite a unique style to your castle.
FluffyCloudM1 - Crashes?
Dear All, if you see my other reviews, I would normally rate apps like 4 star or 5 star. None of the apps I wrote a review about had a rating below 4 star, which makes me a bit disappointed to rate this a 3 star. Let me tell you why I rate it 3 star.
One day, I was bored and I decided to find new apps. I was thinking about what game I should download and I realised, rise of Civilizations was probably a great game! It was on ads and other stuff. I quickly downloaded it and discovered it was an amazing game! I played it for a long time until a bad thing happened to it. IT CRASHED. I tried reloading it like 5 times but it still wouldn’t let me get on without giving me a crash! Now I just stop playing it. I hope you fix this immediately or I might even delete it! Sorry if that’s a bit rude I just got too annoyed by the crashes. Sorry for the long review as well. Hope you fix this! -Governor FluffyCloudM1
Codhisattva1 - Great Idea and concept poor execution.
The idea of this game is great and it is a lot of fun to play, but the more I play the more I realise this game is made for pay to play players, if you don’t pay you can’t really enjoy the game properly, the reward structure is poor and your activity in the game is based on action points that you don’t get many of and cost real money to replenish, on top of that there are many “bugs” in the game that are massively negative for the player and when you speak to the customer service about compensation for a supposed “glitch”they just say sorry and that they can’t give you compensation, when you have already spent a few hundred dollars it’s not fair to have to pay more money because of their bugs, which is what you will have to do to replace what you lost because of the “bug”. I would avoid this game and play a more honest and trustworthy strategy game that isnt based on profit and doesn’t just drain your real money and time.
Sezzoz - Some Game improvements that would be very nice
In the alliance system you should add a last activity logger so the leaders of the Alliances can kick people out who are not active. Also you guys should add training que slots. Where you can que up multiple slots of training soldiers. For example I que up 5 lots of infantry and it will be done in 5 hours instead of coming back each hour to collect and train new troops. Apart from what I suggest, this game is really good. You guys care about the visuals of the game and systems, compared to other games that are similar which compared to yours are not even great since all they do it quick cash grab then never improve. Great job for creating a good game!
Greatgoblin - Really good game but bullies ruin it
I’ve been playing this game for over 15 months and it’s been quite enjoyable. It’s a meaty game with plenty to do and it’s nicely balanced. We had ourselves a nice quiet corner and had a good relationship with our neighbours. But this last month we’ve been threatened, attacked and ordered out by an alliance way larger than we are (they’ve already forced out all our neighbours). We’ve tried diplomacy but the translation software is poor and they either don’t understand us (since we don’t understand them) or they just refuse to understand us (which seems probable). We’ve been given the choice of either joining an alliance of their choosing (where we lose all our benefits) or get smashed totally. So we’re left with a choice of being bullied or crushed. So 15 months of daily playing is wasted. It’s a terrible shame since this game had legs. Ultimately I wouldn’t recommend this game unless you like being bullied.
mr riice - Best strategy game
This game is a relaxing and enjoyable game that involves many things in it that you can enjoy. I’ve been playing for 3 months and have spend $300 dollars on the game, might cost a pretty penny but in my opinion it’s worth it. Download the game and at least play for a bit to experience the good stuff. Some people dislike it because it takes a while to get good but at the same time it’s not like it 5 mins your gonna be destroying other players. I love it when I attack others in the game and win, I also like it sometimes when I lose because I know I help others while losing too, so it’s not always awful. Overall I think this game is an amazing game and you try it out.
Ramamamama - Quitting game
I’ve previously rated this game at 5 stars but after being attacked so constantly for the past week, I have to lower it down. Yes this game was created in China and as a result, Chinese players have a big advantage over the game in terms of city power - since many of them have played this game longer.
However, it draws a line when throughout so many kingdoms, Chinese players and alliances are granted a giant monopoly and many players from continents other than Asia are being constantly attacked. I’m not just hatefully bashing them with lies, the top alliances in my kingdom (1566) (mostly Chinese) are filled with people intent on terrorising all the players.
They do actions such as appearing to attack you by having their troops march towards you but then move somewhere else at the last moment, its absolutely terrifying. I’m not even considered a ‘noob,’ I have been playing for nearly two months now consecutively and I had 5M power.
I love this game so much because of how fun and simple it is but the unfair way players from Asia (not even being racist, I’m Chinese myself) are intent on terrorising all the players really makes me angry with this. Unless this problem is somehow improved by having new players an equal chance of rising in power, I’m afraid I won’t be playing this anymore.
SmithyYT - This game is Amazing!
I have been playing other games and I keep seeing this ad that is rise of kingdoms and I saw the ad everyday. I soon got very annoyed so I decided to download the game. Little did I know this is the best game created. Building your own kingdoms, training your troops, levelling up your commanders, going at war with other kingdoms, joining a Alliance and so much more. This game is a blast and I can’t believe it’s free! You should definitely download RiseOfKingdoms its so fun!
P.s (the only downside of this game is the very long waiting time which I think they could change as it causes the player to get bored and I just don’t like needing to wait 24hr for building something.)
JZ06080608 - Awesome game with errors to be fixed.
Brilliant game that calls for perseverance and teamwork. Love how you can strategize with other members of your alliance, build friendships, gain enemies and set goals. However, since the latest update, the game crashes almost every day with it turning a really strong saturated colour before it gets stuck and flips out. Reopening, it loads to 74% and then stops moving, so it has to be deleted and reinstalled. This then causes a loss of chat messages. The other issue is the chat does not work on mobile data and must be hooked to WiFi. Looking online, I’m not the only one who is cut from my alliance when I’m out of WiFi range. This is a terrible bug, especially when you are at war. Please fix what is otherwise a fantastic game.
Rhino576 - Great game but . .....
This is a great game to play and to slowly build your way to the top. But it is very hard to find an alliance with people that will actually help you along the way, I have been with a few alliances now for different reasons but I’m finding more more and people are just toxic in the chat section. Just thirsty sad people using it for a dating site and pretty much having a sext conversation all the time. Does not need to be in these type of games. Overall a great game but the alliance banning should be more on top of it all.
Random Review #1 - Fun at first, but you’re trapped!
This game was super addicting and very fun at first. I was really liking this game, I have had it for about 3 weeks and I am city hall 13. Then my alliance that I was in died and everyone left so I did too. When I tried to join a new alliance I realised I was TRAPPED!
YOU ARE TRAPPED IN YOUR LITTLE KINGDOM SQUARE FOREVER!
I could not get out of my kingdom so there and only a ha full of different alliances I can join.
I researched and apparently once you reach city hall 8 (which happens very fast) then you can’t move to a different kingdom. This has completely ruined the game for me. Now my current alliance is dying too. My alliance gets overrun, I lose all my troops. I send out some troops to gather materials to recover, I lose them as well.
It is a constant cycle now of attempting to gather resources then having everything killed. The cost to retrain troops is astronomically high. After about 3 times being attacked by players WAY higher level then me and a couple times failing to gather resources, I have used up every single amount of my resources I had in my inventory.
You are trapped in a tiny square of land with particular players after city hall 8. Say no to joining a friends alliance or a alliance you want to be in from another kingdom.
Happi Dragneel - RoK Don’t Care About Their Community
After spending 2 weeks of heavily playing this game and making it to 1mil power, my alliance decided to attack another alliance. From here one of their members went from 3mil power to 25mil power in 10mins. Since then he has done nothing but bully weaker players & kill off server population.
I asked the staff to do something like introduce a power cap per week or immigrate him as he had more power than the top 50 players combined.
The only response I got each time was simply “we’ve checked & he’s not cheating”, this is unacceptable. I’ve never met a company who just don’t care about their players as long as they make money.
As of today I’ve had enough & will not spend another dime on this game neither shall my friends as we’ll be looking for a similar game that actually cares about its community & server populations, a game that doesn't allow players to pay their way to win or accept those powerful players bullying new players from the get go & allowing them to send messages like “ I was bored or it’s not my fault you can’t pay for power”.
No more, i’ve already spent 2.5 weeks trying to get the staff to do something about it.
As of today i’m just going to find a better product.
Ryan70707 - Something you could add
Rise of Civilisations is a amazing game which you can never get bored of. I have found that when sending allaince mails many people don’t read or acknowledge them at all. I’m suggesting that you add a feature specific to the R4 and R5 of the alliance to be able to see who is looking at the mails you send. Also you could add a response button so that people actually read the entire thing and don’t just click on it and get out of it to remove the notification. Other than that little improvement this game is incredible with great potential for this game.
hdhdhehehsue - Great game, operational issues.
Gameplay has been amazing and although in terms of themes it shares many characteristics with similar games available feels completed to a better standard than many of the others. Pay2Win still very much present but hasn’t detracted from the enjoyment in early stages of the game.
Strongly supported the concept of verification rewards to ensure players and actually players rather than bots, this is however also the biggest gripe as my account is constantly failing to verify and requests for help are yet to be answered. Bugs and poor customer service unfortunately ruin the game by literally making it impossible for me to play. Other players might not experience these issues as it could be an iOS 11 specific issue.
WantWiFi - Great Game, Worst Support EVER!
The game itself is great, despite the usual Pay-to-Win hassles these games all have. I’d give it a 4.5 rating.
But Lilith have to be THE worst people to deal with I’ve ever encountered. Support just plays canned responses at you and does nothing. And they keep adding bells and whistles which bloat the footprint (9gb+ currently) instead of fixing a laundry list of big and little issues that actually matter.
And then they break stuff, in every single update. Seriously break it. And always in the middle of events when you can’t afford to be out of action. Right now, in the middle of KvK, they pull an update that freezes the game at 6% loading and reports constant network errors. And they post advice that the only fix is to delete and reinstall. And then the download crashes before completion. Over and over.
I’m about to lose a full year’s progress because of this, not to mention all sorts of tasks I was working on. And I’ve pretty much had a gutful. If it doesn’t work in the next few hours, I’ll finally give up on it and find something from a better publisher.
iOverExplain - Great game! Slight tweaking
I have loved this game since I started playing. Definitely one of the better applications amongst it’s genre. Haven’t found any bugs since I started plying however, one thing has been getting on my nerves. The builders hut constantly is suggesting I upgrade buildings I don’t have certain resources for. I recommend that it places preferences for buildings that you have the resources + it’s current preference mechanic. I think both these mechanics combined will make it more convenient for users, which is exactly what the builders hut is for. Convenience. Thanks!
MorganSpooner - Fantastic game
Very fun, been playing for about 10 hours, although one problem I’ve had is with the beginners teleport item, it didn’t work the 2 times I used it, no big deal though.
I do have a request though! I think it would do the game some real good justice if they put more Celtic (Irish and Scottish) commanders in, Celtic history is very thick with a lot of cool things, not many games do the culture justice, but I think this is the game that could introduce the culture to a wide base of people.
Personally I’ve learnt quite a bit from reading the commanders bio’s!
Ameiian - Crashes
Nice game but I can’t even play it for over 2 minutes, this game is horrible with iOS because it keeps crashing and crashing and crashing ever 2 or 3 minutes, a lot of people experience this issue as I’ve spoken with people in kingdom chat and the public discord. The developers say they are gonna fix it but every update it gets worse and worse. And don’t even bother trying to ask the customer support team for help because they just tell you to reinstall which does nothing, they also take a long time to respond and when they do the information isn’t helpful. Instead of fixing the game so people can actually play they just keep pushing out updates and ignoring all of the iOS players who experience these problems.
Bot Tato - Very good game
I enjoy this game a lot I find it a lot more better than other strategy games and it is very rewarding however I would like to suggest to make moving structures easier and maybe increase the amount of space you have in your city because at the moment you can’t really add much decorations and I reckon you should be able to have custom rally times because sometimes 30 minutes is to short and 8 hours is too long however, I still find this game one of the best mobile strategy games.
fvnnyman - Enjoying the game
Good game it takes time but still fun the start of game goes fast pas witch is good then starts to slow down abit still good and if you don’t want to put money into the game it’s far and still fun and when you want to put money in it’s still far it’s up to you haha, big map to play on gets little technical when it comes to alliances but if you like that stuff its a good game haha
Oh and haven’t had any problems so far runs fine I got iPhone 7 if that helps.
Give it a go and enjoy.
Bon576 - Technical Support
At the start the technical support was great however now I keep getting ignored when I asked technical question regarding glitches and problems that were suppose to be fixed. I’m not pleased that such a good game with such potential has such a lazy support team.
I asked how to fix my devices in game chat not linking and I got told to send screenshots or video evidence even though I can’t send a screenshot of something that isn’t there??? I’ve been ignored on other questions and it’s been weeks. I’ve just given up on those issues now. Support team and severe need an upgrade. MAJORLY!
phukyomumma - Love it
Hey guys, love the game and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, for a while now. But there’s something I noticed I wouldn’t mind getting added into the game, while In an expedition challenge fight, on the left side of the screen is the enemy your fighting and there name in a circle with how many troops they have left, but on the right side it has your own character but no troop number, I would love to be able to see how many troops I have left while doing that, thanks heaps! Yours truly ; PhukYoMumma
Zombiemarine27 - Great Game
I really liked playing this game, a friend told me about it and showed me it and we ended up starting an alliance together which was really fun! I like the alliance system, but I don’t exactly like how expensive everything is in the terms of resources and how much you lose when your city is destroyed, but at least alliance members send supplies to help you recover! It’s a fun and easy game which I could probably play hours on end, but there are places that need improvement but it’s an a really well made game!
Setmaka - Could be better
I have been playing this game for over 6 months logging in everyday having fun only thing is it can be a bit unbalanced I had been in an alliance where the pay to win was their way to live with the leader dropping hundreds a week luckily for me I never spent money on it but because of that I ended up behind almost everyone even after playing everyday for over six months one attack I lost 2mil power that was the last straw after healing all my troops I had no resources and lost all enthusiasm for it. give it a go it is fun but if you aren’t dropping money into it you shouldn’t expect too much
Oopzip - A terrible ‘system’ and customer service!
You might regret if you get this game! At first I thought the game was nice, like the art work of characters and play with alliances. However, my account was banned one day with no signs, after I spent my time and money on the game!! Feel so scammed!! Asked customer service, no reply for more than 12 hours, no reply from their Facebook page at all. When customer service actually got back to me, each time I asked them to explain the reason for account ban, there was a different reason and the ‘system’ had detected something different that I didn’t do??!! Total BS, it is terrible! If you play the game might end up like me, regretting it so so much!
Mangomum - Best Game
I think this is the best game of this genre I have played. Yes it maybe P2W but even a F2P can really make it in this game with a more focus. I like the fact that if your first city is not how you want it to be you can easily start another on.
The offering for in game purchase are reasonable and I feel that I don’t have to purchase just to stay in the game. The Devs have got a good balance.
The graphics are great and controls make it easy to play. No lag and good quests.
ssubramanian84 - Addictive and awesome
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I am in love with this game. Looking forward to more updates.
Everything is awesome. My only thing was to do with the graphics when I just started playing it but then soon realised the settings can be changed 😄 I don’t know how to explain but it is simply just awesome and I love the game. A huge thank you to the developers and all the efforts you all put into it. Keep it coming. 👍
Ryukahi - Japanese language support?
I saw that you say that Japanese is supported. But in game when I look to change the language, I’m unable to find the option for it. I did find it in the language for your alliance, but couldn’t find it for the overall game interface, and would I be able to name my character in Japanese characters as well? As I have seen kanji being used, but hiragana/katakana not accepted I think?
Really enjoying the game so far, but more Japanese would make it amazing!
Thank you for you help!
Crazygaming23 - Please add more units and eras
This is not going to be a long review so I will keep it brief
This game is quite enjoyable and the different civilisations allow me feel more customised to my position anyway let me get to the point
Please and a bunch of new individual civ special units at earlier staged in you empire and please add more eras I would love to see more eras going up to the industrial revolution And colonisation
Anyway that is it
Thus game has got great promise and I hope you make this game into one of the best strategy games on the apps store
Player111111171111 - A good game but...
The game is good but it constantly crash and changing server never seems to work. I tried moving to my friends server followed all the criteria there and it tells me the server is protected even though it says it’s in the nascent period and not the protected period. I’ve tried teleporting with my main account (lvl18) and my second account which level 4, clearly below level 8. I’ve also contacted them asking for help but they didn’t reply at all. Another thing is Korean dominance, the server I’m in hates my alliance for being the only none Korean people in it. Telling us to leave and saying racist stuff.
Jaidch - Great game. Needs bug fix
Absolutely awesome game. Love the graphics and gameplay, it’s a very good game and I’m surprised. However. I’ve run into a bug that is kind of stopping my progression in game, I placed down a road and it became invisable and I couldn’t move it which meant I was unable to move buildings and structures over that area. I also need to place down some new buildings yet can’t because certain areas are technically blocked with the road. Please fix ASAP
C_Apache46 - Very enjoyable just one problem
I enjoy the game a lot been playing a fair bit. But only just recently my game has been crashing every minute or so, I don’t know why it just crashes I go back into it and then it crashes like a minute later and of course this makes my gameplay difficult when I’m working with my alliance members to do certain things in the game. It is really getting annoying and I’m not sure what’s wrong please fix this. Otherwise the game itself is very enjoyable and I have a lot of fun playing it
sq huang - Suggestion
This game is absolutely amazing. Fun, addicting, and not as pay to win as like games. But one thing I absolutely hate about this game is how you lose all the troops that are severely wounded while attacking other villages while they lose none of their troops if their hospitals are not full. I hate attacking people because of this :( please find a solution to this as almost all of the members in my clan find this feature unfair 😡
Casperyu1029 - Excellent game but too much bullying from the Koreans
Really enjoy playing this game. I’m a player in kingdom #1515 with few of my friends and family members. Problem is we often bullied by the Korean players Alliance RKEA. They wiped our old alliance area and now they started hunting us in the new territory. Spoke to other players and checked Facebook RoK user group. We are not the only ones face this bullying issue. They are very well organised for hunting and killing. So if you don’t want to be the next one got killed, don’t play this game!!! You will be bullied by the Koreans sooner or later. There is no fair play in this game.
Darkacer - Easy to start
Only started to play today and so far I am enjoying it. It’s pretty easy to start up and gain power by following in game instructions. Being in a alliance also helps a great deal for beginners, each alliance member has a chance to assist with building times or research times. I do see an element to which player can “pay to win” but so far I have not had to pay a cent.
Good luck all and have fun
:-) ;) :-D - Dont play this game
First, unless you are planing to spend a lot of money, then you wont go far. I have been playing for a year, and didnt even get close to getting the highest level of fighters, the T5s. None of the ones in my territory did either, and they spent some money. Also you will sometimes have to get up in the middle of the night to fight, as the time sones are different. I used to play up to 16 hours a day, and didnt get far. It is not worht it, and people who do get far in the game, is loosing interest after a while. This is one of the worst games out there. You will have to spend $1000s and loads of time.
Bad management as well.
Amelia Seaspn - AMAZING GAME!!!
Ok for anyone who is a fan of clash of clans of other RTS games this is for you!!! Good graphics, helpful staff team and over all fun!!! It’s pretty easy to get gems without buying them and there’s not much need for them anyway because from playing it you get so much stuff!!! I’ve been playing for 3 days now and I’m around 1,500 gems just from playing so I you’re worried about spending money no need ;)
SLS2504 - Okay..but no support and some glitches
Overall good game but you won’t progress far without spending some money. You can play without, but most people will surpass you quickly. Also no tech support at all and occasional glitches! Today I spent some money on gems to assist with a celebration event in the game, and when I used them the app didn’t register I had and I lost my gems. Never spending another cent. I couldn’t find any way of contacting the developers/app support at all, nothing in the app and the link to ‘contact us’ doesn’t work on their website.

Spezza 18 - Great Game
The game is fun, with a strong social component.
A little buggy at times, getting kicked out of the game. But worth the trouble most of the time
xxxxagnes - Love this game
Animations, graphics and day and night cycles are quite impressive. Recommend rise of civilization to my friends.
Vic245354543 - Great game, no annoying ads!
This is a well balanced game with plenty of great elements.
Andrewk2210 - Ad is misleading.
It’s a great game, played for almost a year now, haven’t missed one day. But this, like many other mobile games, has a COMPLETELY UNRELATED ad to show gameplay. There are no dragons, there is no feeding dragons to level them up, there’s nothing even CLOSE to that in game. CLICKBAIT ads to lure new players in. Games need to stop this, show ACTUAL gameplay for once.
Supitstrav - Misleading
Was duped into trying this game from an ad that showed gameplay that doesn’t exist. Will avoid this dev because of that dishonest practice
truelyjust - Pay to win free to lose.
A great game if you want to pay to win for a digital ego. Otherwise pure horse crap.
Cosmicsz - Come to 1310
For those people who are getting bullied by p2w come to our server we zero anyone who steps out of line
This is a great game once you find the right people and server to play on and with
lmy1116 - 根本停不下来！
The Michox - Excellent customer abuse system
This is not your take-your-money-and-run skim. Lilith was able to craft a master piece is sociable fun and program bugs. Where the magic starts is in their Customer Abuse System. In a fine core of lack of vision and bug riddle programming, they have top a slow response system, simmering to perfection the insult of forcing you to demonstrate the problem. We have bugs and we have you money. What are you going todo about it? The true master craft shows in the slow, erratic response - almost schizophrenic- to the point of absurdity. Put your money in and let the abuse start!
Perplexed🤨 - Crooks!
They take away player’s inventory and when you inquire or request for it to be returned or the issue to be repaired their response is for me to “purchase” to replace it! RoK has been a fun game but to be pressured to buy because they take away your items...
**Advise: Do Not play this game.
CohenH yorkton - I hate the game
Every time I go off for 2 days I get teleported and end up far from my alliance fix this please.
FullLock - Captivating
Super fun animations and I love the back story on all of the commanders that get unlocked. It makes them feel more real and less generic.
Dman187-420 - Great game
Like it so far reminds me of a lord of the rings game I played
HGHghjhfse - P2W
Great game but open migration ruins it. Players who have spent tens of thousands will jump to your world (or your kvk) and ruin it. It is a shame when the game has such potential...
AnthonyYPC - Bad experience
Negative game experience caused by Alliance AR&G in Kingdom #1325
M-A Quessy - Pay to lose, sponsored teams
I’ve been at this game for over a month now. It’s fun until you realise that it’s rigged.
Yeah yeah everyone know it’s a pay to win game and I spent a bit and had some fun. But when I started to look at hoe the teams (aliances) are structured you quickly find out that the game is rigged.
If your alliance hit the 50 000 000 power mark, you’re in for a surprise! On the server I was on they call themselves League of this or League of that witch consists of sponsored players either by ROC or a third party.
It’s like clockwork, they let the smaller guys fatten up to this level only to gang up and burn you to the ground. 1st time ok that’s life, second time is not fun but hey, stuff happens! Third time, you start to ask yourself what did you do wrong? If you have half a brain you look at the behavior on a large scale and find out it’s happening all over the server.
When you see players that are soooo high in power you figure out either they sunk 10k$ in the game in a short amount of time or something is a miss.
Pay to win is a pain but pay to lose is just highway robbery.
fix the game. (game owners) - I always have to refresh this game completely crashes....
Can’t even enjoy the game. I will play for like 5 minutes the crashes I don’t get it what a disappointment
adgshfhfhdjnrg - Good
33;#)# - Adds For the game.
I just wanted to say.IM SICK OF SEING THIS ADD. I DOWNLOADED IT.NOTHING FUN.
Slashhammer139 - Fake Ads
I saw an ad on YouTube but when I downloaded the app the game looked or played nothing like the ad
Punchboxer - Do not download
Pretty fun game in my opinion. Unfortunately greedy devs ruining the game by limiting the number of heals each player can receive daily for free, forcing active players to either buy additional speedups or be active in wars. Very limiting and frustrating for free to play and low spenders
Coolkidxd00 - I LOvE IT bUT
It crashes every 1 min before it was every 2 mins MAKe THIs gO AWAY PLZ
Ipfagund - BOTS
Kingdoms 1675 and 1656 using cheat and not get ban. Thousands of bots there.
Heehee198 - Healing patch update
The game changed 1000 limited healing helps to having lag time after 1000 helps. The thing they didn’t mention is the lag time is 3 minutes.. so it’ll take you 90 mins to heal when it could’ve been 30 mins. This update fooled a lot of players since the game didn’t specify how long the lag time is haha
Lot of people will quit after finding out the lag time :) don’t play this game. Waste of your time
Gamer24680 - Last healing update was a pure cash grab
Healing update removed a crucial part of gameplay, it is purely cash a cash grab of epic proportions. The major part of pvp in this game involves lots of healing, it is now limited, so therefore only paying players can heal. I’m not spending anymore money on the game until this has been fixed.
iLikeTurtles87 - Just a money grab
For a game that is dependent on community and communication you’d think the developers will actually listen to their player base and fix their chat system and not look for every opportunity to make the players spend more money.
With every “patch” the games chat system gets worst. They even made a patch specifically to fix the chat but it broke it even more...show the competence of the devs.
If that wasn’t enough to show how incompetent Lilith games are maybe this will help. They removed game mechanics where in the name of “game improvement against bots” just so they can force people to spend more in the game.
Do not download this game and support this money grabbing incompetence developer.
alaingomez - No recommandation
JadedPanda - Pure pay to play
1000 help limit for healing troops totally just took this to the next level of busted and not fair game mechanics. Overall quality is poor too with kingdom vs kingdom events causing lag and your troops to disappear from the screen during major battles. Good luck to anyone not willing to spend thousands. They’re not willing to ban spenders using bots.
YamatoVIII - 1000 helps per day is not enough
You have the verification system which can’t even do its job to detect bots. Now, you reduce helps to 1000 per day which will affect all players not just people who pay to play. At this rate, sooner or later your company will be screwed over. Before any update, do a survey to understand majority’s opinions. 1 Star
Johnny'C - New healing update
Please listen to community feedback on reverting this new limited healing update it will harm f2p to low spenders very heavily leading to less people playing.
p3arce - Ups and downs
I love the idea and concept of the game. But the developers prioritize money over fun. every time I play this game I start out in a new kingdom and work my way up, playing hours and hours each day. There are so many people spending great amounts of money to be the “best” and it’s very unfair for those who don’t have thousands to spend on the game. There should be a limit to how much people should be able to spend because it takes the fun out of the game for everyone else, the game would be so much more fun if every player had to put time into the game instead of money.
wsndtjw - Garbage game
Spend thousands of dollars on this game and have a bad experience on it!
(Daddio) - Misleading
The gameplay in the advertisement I saw isn’t found in the game.
The response to this review is not accurate because of the fact that 4 men dancing holding a coffin is not in the game.
gyhhhbbfrrffdsg - The game is for paid players
Free players are slaughtered like sheep by paid players. You need spend at least $5,000 to be a top player. Don’t waste your time and money.
Frost_Quake - Broken
Todays update just broke the game, cant even get past the loading screen now. It just sits at 6% until it times out and the app crashes.
Update: After talking to other alliance members on discord, a lot of players are unable to log on.

The Chat update still horrible. Actually even worse...

SkilledAce - Only credit card players have fun
I have been playing this game over a year, with multiple accounts. I have done jumper accounts and farm accounts, I have migrated 4 times to new kingdoms in search for some decent people to play with... all I have found is racist and sexist bullies of the asian dissent, I was zeroed 3 times for not agreeing with them and their dictatorship way of running the kingdom. They were bullying this one player and I stood up to them and got kicked out of every alliance in my current kingdom. I have already put thousands of dollars and my time playing this game to be bullied and zeroed for doing what’s right.... that’s ridiculous! The culture of the game was much better when this game first came out ! I’d just like to save anyone like myself that really enjoys this style of game from getting screwed over! My recommendation is the fatter the wallet the more fun you will have, but remember that there is always someone else with a bigger wallet than yourself! Those whale account players will zero you for fun when they are bored ! Just a heads up now !!
P.S developers my suggestion would be to keep kingdoms dedicated to certain hemispheres of the world (example uk and Americans together, asian continents together, all of Europe together, South America) just an idea to fix the bullying!
Hemorrhoidz - Garbage
Don’t bother wasting your time here, people spend 2k and go around and ruin the game for FTP. The free players have 1mil power and pay players 20+mil there’s no point in competing in that unless you’re rich.
Blee_jk - Another pay to win game
It’s fun and peaceful til other paid users kill off all your farmers and runs
Submiting this review is fun - Fun but concerned
I was having fun with this game and I decided to buy 2 bundle packs and a gem pack, no big deal they’re only $6.99 each or so I thought. The concern came when I got billed charges of $18.94 and $15.80 and $9.47. I don’t understand why there’s a set price and then I get charged a totally different price at the end, if I knew it would come out that way I would never have purchased the packs in the first place. Can someone please get back to me on this, if it’s some error on your end or me just not understanding how it all works, I would like some clarification.
Eugene1234567nbvcfh - No customer service support. Get ready to spend
Great game if you are willing to play at least a couple of months. You will need to spend to build your commander skill level. Resources is not a problem as you can make alt on the same server. Lots of bugs still. Very frequent and the game provider does not compensate for your lost opportunity if an event ended early due to their error. Do not expect to get customer service support. Maybe for the top spenders they might. And I mean those who spend $1000 a month. They send gift packs to those top spenders as additional incentive to keep them happy. The f2p and low spenders have a huge disadvantage. Great game and great fight system. Real time combat as you can drag the army around on the map up to 5 marches. They keep coming out with new heroes so you will have to keep spending to keep up.
Theworldsbestarmy - Toxic community
When I first played it, it was a great game and I enjoyed it. I made lots of friends on there but the guilds there are just toxic. I come back to the game to see that my guild is disbanded because we accidentally attacked their flag that could be easily repaired (they were the most powerful guild there) and they started attacking us individually....we tried to communicate and see if this could be solved because they, as the king of the kingdom, stated in the rules (that they made) that we aren’t allowed to attack other people cities however they did it...all of my friends quit because of how unequal people in this game are. People in this game actually thinks that they are better than other people and even if they are, do you think that dragging other people down is the right way to make other people enjoy?
Hopefully you will read this rating and make a report tool or something so that people will get banned and people like me won’t be verbally bullied in the kingdom chat but until this feature is released, I don’t think I can manage to read all the hate comments posted onto the kingdom chat.
NorthAtlanticTreatyOrgansation - Nice(Sike)
Only playing because it contains the Ottoman and Arabia civilizations.
Never mind, it’s not a good game. After a couple minutes got pretty boring and is like clash of clans(I also don’t like clash of clans)
Up to you if you want to download.
12),)&&$ - Pay to win, terrible customer service
Really great community of players and some fun events, but if you want to have a chance of competing with other players you will have to spend a lot of money. Their customer service is terrible too, so don’t even bother trying to get a refund if you buy something expensive accidentally. They are fine with giving YouTube creators tons of freebies to make them the strongest players, but won’t even consider giving one of their customers a small refund. Stay away!

deadbuty - Rise of Kingdoms
This is the second time I have ever given a game a five star review, that means you guys are doing some thing right, I have nothing bad to say about this game, and I have played a lot of similar games like this one, like king of Avalon for instants, That game is 70%Pay to win, and if you’re that 30% you’re going to be very very fortunate if you can climb your way up to the top or even get up to a reasonable power and stuff like that because me and my stepdad, we had that game for an entire year eachAnd every chance we got we would go farming collect Wood, stoneAnd all the other resources but me and him both could not get above 5 million power each we always got raided and got attacked by a alliance called RUSIt was a Russian alliance and they I won hundred percent guarantee this paid their way up to the top, I absolutely hate people that pay to go all the way to the top just to attack super low level guys that are just trying to play the game normally. Sorry I just had to rant, (p.s your game is very good)
WrathOfTheShaft - Nice
This game is pretty great, I’ve played a few like it that are fun an just as addicting but this game has some great mechanics, a lot to take on so joining an alliance is very helpful. Members can help you build your upgrades and you get to have commander characters that give great boosts. Others like this game should be taking pointers from them there is a real benefit from joining an alliance, some of thes games give really bad gifts and don’t allow you to help members with each upgrade. Haven’t played long enough to know how much money will need spent, but it is obviously going to take cash and lots of it but that’s not a issue it is a business and these guys give you a lot of the speed ups and character trophies that you need to progress. Spending on a game helps you get ahead for sure, but this game doesn’t punish you for not spending. At least I haven’t noticed it yet if it does lol. Thank you Lilith games for giving me hope in a good war game! Keep up the great work.
Zach0091 - Tragedy, unfairly pay to win like every other
Great game, innovating mechanics and atmosphere, however at the end of the day, no matter how much free stuff or rents the game runs, its pay to win, and very much so. I’m writing this as my clan, the largest in the kingdom by total power is currently being constantly defeated by one player who is rumored to be an employee/dev, as it’s crazy to think that one man could spend the 10s of thousands of dollars this man has to reach his level of power. (He’s spent at least 30-50,000 USD) And it’s impossible to compete with him. His armies are far to strong and vast, his technology too superior, there’s no cunning or strategy in this game, it’s just him having too deep of a wallet. And it’s ruined the whole kingdom as the game has no strategy in it. So beware before putting in cash, and make sure there’s no huge wallet warriors like this (everyone spends money but this is absurd) as it will make this game no better than any other game. The battle system also makes it virtually impossible to dent this guy’s armies as they’re so big and top tier they crush armies of similar sizes due to his tech and unit tier. Great game, tragedy it’s just another pay to win at the end of the day.
redfirebat - One star game.
I saw ads where you had lots of freedom, make rivers create mountains choose start location, have decisions on money spending like between getting drunk vs. buying land. Truth is, it's fake advertising, you can do barely anything the ad tells you can do and really is just an very grindy version of clash of clans. Even there are so many fake stories: look at this I exscaped my first fort and now started another one on an island, FAKE nope, in the game you cant do anything from the ad the map has no trace of ialands or anything big the map is really bad for juat looking like 4 year old made it. Even they are so lazy on the ads, they just copied thw ad except got a paid voice actor to fake playing the game. Just look at the other games they made that have ads, anyone can clearly tell that they are exadurated of for example getting millions of xp in 3 seconds. Paid actors where you can see their phones turned off or holding their phone the wrong way the game should be played, showing very intense feeling for a mobile game. Game belongs in the dumpster where it would be incinerated and all traces of it would be forgotten. Ez one star never play again. I have been tricked by ads to download this boring game.
anon174947 - Great FTP Game, But It Keeps Crashing.
This game is amazing for a free-to-play game, it’s like Clash of Clans but better. I’ve had a wonderful experience choosing my faction, upgrading everything, challenging the story mode, joining an alliance, becoming an officer of said alliance, and soon we’ll have a center fortress to compliment our alliance! All of these factors make it a good game, but the terrible thing about it is that it keeps crashing on me. For the first couple times I was ok with it, ignoring and just getting back on progress, but when it kept happening so frequently it made the game hard to play without being mad. I’ve tried almost everything to make this game not crash, closing other apps, turning the graphics and fps down, maintaining the best connection to wifi, making another governor, and when I tried to search in the search bar of the faq in game, my screen would just freeze and I would have to close the app and reopen it again. It’s been bothersome to keep playing this game, if you have any solutions please do tell.
Theo randomly - Very fun game with room for improvement
So I’ve been playing the game for about a month and It is very fun, addicting and has a lot to offer. I find myself enjoying It the more I play. It’s not rediculous when It comes to leveling up and such, seems reasonable to me. I only have a couple issues with It, one being that there isn’t much reward to attack other cities. Your troops die when the person being attacked just goes to hospital. Both should lose troops in my opinion, also there’s barely any plundering of resources. I wish if I attacked a city with 5 million resources I could take more from them than just 300k. Doesn’t seem like the reward of killing my men is worth attacking anyone. And lastly I wish there was a server for different regions of the world. Every single server is full of korean players who all pay insane amounts of money to be top dogs and ruin the game for everyone else. I’m considering quitting because of this. Please consider making a server for NA only players, a server for Europe, a server for Asia, and a cross server possibly? I’m sure I am not the only one that feels this way.
Dididieick - TERRIBLE development team
I have been playing this game for 10 months. The overall game play is great, it’s the management that is the HUGE problem. Firstly, they gave all of their YouRubs sponsored creators a TON of free gifts which resulted in a ton of death of cities for many players. FREE TO PLAY players included. First they banned the YouTube’s account (as if it was their fault the developers gave them free stuff?!?!) but then gave them all negative items for what they received. Fine, that’s fair considering the circumstances. NOW they have taken it too far. They released a new game mode and had major bugs in it. Nobody knew. Free to play players, pay to win, nobody knew at all. Ark of Osiris came, and they accidentally distributed a lot of coins to buy in a shop from that. Nobody knew why so we bought the goodies. Now WE are being punished for their lack of bug management. This is just two examples but their lack of customer support and just overall crap management team is just a short list of MANY things wrong with them. Unfortunately many people have paid a lot of money and won’t quit. But I want to say a big EFF you to Lilith and it’s teams. I hope you all get what you deserve and your company goes under.
zextex - P2W
You’re either a 5 mil power player or you spent thousands and became a 80 mil power player. No balance for anyone who has spent less than $100. I was with the strongest alliance in my kingdom currently alliance is 2.5 billion power and I was with them since they started. before they (my alliance and many other alliances)made it mandatory for everyone to be at 20 mil power then anyone under 20 mil was kicked out and burned. ( I was at 12 mil power and got burned down to 3 mil). You guys made the game for people who will spend money and I get it. The problem is everything cost a fortune with little or no return. When you get burned they will send you specials for like $20 that won’t even cover a quarter of what you lost. And ever since history of kingdom ended it’s been nonstop boring. Osiris won’t keep up with demand. Wish I could delete my characters and cut my losses. Also the way you earn power by upgrading buildings and research and cooking troops should be fixed to where you could at least gain a little more power from upgrading that takes several days instead of hours. This game was really great in the first 3 months then it became more about how much money you spent than anything else.
Barenone - Pay to win
So here I am enjoying the game with my clan, we are doing pretty well, one of the strongest around. We have had friendly rivalries and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves..... until. In walks some group from china. Dumped at least a couple thousand i to the game. Maced out on level, troops, in the power area of 25 million while most of the higher players have a couple million. No one can beat them, they just roll over everyone. They haven't collected resources or anything they are purely dumping money in. Now I can understand throwing some money into the game, i have myself. But it is ridiculous that everyone else can be overpowered by someone who does nothing but throw money at it. So what does this accomplish for the company? Sure they get a lot of money short term but it kills the fun of the game for the other players who will leave for more balanced games. So all that is left are the overpowered money dumpers who have no one left to kill so they quit out of boredom. Long term loss for a short term gain. I expect this game will just fall behind like most then the company will probably throw a new skin on it and re release it, rinse and repeat.
XD Jeff - Good game but seriously needs improvement
I have only played this game for about 3 months and I’m 2.5mil pwr
I joined my kingdom when it was 10 hours old. So you think that everyone would be bad right? Wrong! On the first day there was as powerful as I am now. I like the format of it but it’s just too pay to win. In clash of clans sure you could buy I whole bunch of gems, but you still needed strategy to attack. In rok you don’t need strategy so you could spends 1000s of dollars just making an unbeatable army. In my kingdom the king has said you cannot participate in kvk in you’re 4mil pwr and t4 troops. You have to spend money to t4 that fast. The game has started to get boring as there are so many people who spend money on this game.
Sure I get the devs need money, but this is overkill.
I started a new account, and a guy joined my alliance in the first day, then left. Now when I look at rankings he’s the second highest in the kindgom with like 5mil power 2 weeks after the server started! That’s absurd and needs to get fixed.
Gamer 1638374838283 - This game is easy to play
What makes this game different form Koc, GoW, and GoT is that they add civilizations with three different buffs, and a special unit that you of course have to unlock/research, along with an alliance research that you have to help do. These are futures that have never been introduced before. That’s what makes it worth getting!
Now, the alliance system on its own is VERY interesting. I like it a lot better than most because you can now see who is actually putting in the time and growing as donating resources to your alliance tree. Most games similar to this you have to lay out the rules but the developers did a good job doing it for us.
The map: The map for this game is HUGE. To scout the entire map is the only problem I have, but it’s part of the experience of being a new pioneer. I’m also really excited to what other historical figures they add to this game, along with other civilizations as well. All in all the developers did a great job.
Sonic99999 - Needs a lot of changes
If you plan on spending hours upon hours and lots of real money this game is for you. It’s a shame bc this game could be awesome with some changes. I tried it for a week without paying $$ and here’s what I found. You can be placed in a kingdom that is already developed by others and you are at a distinct disadvantage. In addition you can be placed in a kingdom with mostly others from foreign countries and that’s bad but only bc of the time differences and language differences. The in game translator is crap. Mainly bc most ppl don’t write formally and all the text abbreviations and short cuts leave foreigners confused.
Another problem, you can spend countless hours building your city and someone stronger can easily destroy most of your work. This can happen even if you’re in a good alliance. Fix it by capping how many troops you can build at each stage and eliminate having to heal troops manually. If you’re afk or sleeping your troops will die from most attacks. Institute automatic shields after someone has been attacked so that their city doesn’t burn to the ground. Also way too many boosts and best game items are $$$ only.
Fyzle - Fun at first, but it is pay to play
I started in kingdom and was having fun. Played every day for at least several hours. Joined a decent alliance who was looking to control a shrine and or gate and then came IVY (1 through 8), who had a bunch of members who paid to level up and they just took over everything. No way to compete with players who get 5-10 million power in a 10-14 days. Because they control the passes and resource points there was no way to ever catch up no matter how long you played.
Moved to a brand new server and started the moment it opened with some of our alliance members. Though we quickly grew to 50 members and I even spent some money to level up early, was still falling behind the paying players and their alliances. After about a week, I I could see where it was headed and choose to find another game where you could at least somewhat keep up with those that paid money by grinding out over time.
Again, fun mechanics and good events, but no point when people are dropping hundreds of dollars to dominate everyone.
Kristinfitness - Ultimate battle game! Best game ever!
I’ve been playing this game for a little under a year and I truly love it. Very addictive. I downloaded it just to play while I was bored, for example standing in line at a store but it quickly grew into the kind of game you every day, through out the whole day lol And on a even more personal note; I met my fiancé on here. I met him after a few weeks of playing the game. And even though he is in a different state than me (he has flown me out there every month so we can be together); it was love at first attack.
I was a newbie and I didnt understand it then but he was/is what the gamers call a whale. He killed my troops during kill event and I got made so I attacked him with all of my troops and they died too. He sent and apologize email and helped me regain the troops I lost. We’ve spoken with each other every single day since then ❤️
The game was called rise of civilization when we met. Him and I are all about that RC life lol
KickedtotheKirb - Too much Pay to Win
First i would like to say this is the best mobile strategy game i have ever played. I put in a great deal of time on numerous kingdoms. Playing with one alliance for weeks, making friends, and having tons of fun. As you grow stronger you become amazed and wonder how far can this really go?
Being on one server with 100’s of other players in incredible and the translator engine makes communicating more possible. I once played weeks with an alliance where the membership was mainly from a country across the world speaking a totally different language. Being able to communicate and make progress amazed me.
BUT, i just deleted the game from my phone, and honestly it saddened me to do so. But the pay to win has gotten so out of hand it takes all strategy and fun out of it. I Put in roughly 30 days on a server, reached 2.5 mil in power and went to war with an alliance who had a whale at 13 mil whom bought their way there. There was absolutely nothing we could do. I dont believe in games where you can buy your way victory without an ounce of strategy.
PLEASE, make servers with zero in app purchases. Until then i will not waste my time to just run into the “server ruining whales” that spend 1000’s and ruin it for everyone else.
The daily questions, seasonal challenges, and overall gameplay is so so good. But ruined with p2w.
Lilith you will see many many more leaving this game for the same reason. Make the app 5 dollars to purchase and remove p2w.
T_Hunt19 - Why do I need the verification?
I was playing this game for a while day(literally a WHOLE day) and I got to level 8 or town level 8 and then this stupid verification thing came up. I kept on clicking verify, but it would never work. Now I can’t even play because of this varification. Totally wasted me day. OK now it stopped for a day and I grinder the WHOLE time. I got to city hall level 10, and it happened again!!! IM SOO MAD. To be specific, I click verify, it shows a white screen with a blue guy in the middle. He spins a couple times, then it just goes away. Like what the heck?!?! Now I can’t play again. Come on devs. Ok. Now this is my third time. The first time it stopped so I played and got to town level 10 and it did the verify. It stopped again so then I got to 11. BUT NOW ITS DOING IT AGAIN. COME ON. No , I’m not going to go to your Facebook, I don’t have it. So like, can you fix this or are you going to just have people stop playing. I’ve seen other reviews on this as well. LIKE COME ON AND FIX YOUR GAME. I LOVED TO PLAY IT, BUT NOW ITS JUST ANNOYING. Um you still said to send something to your Facebook. Did you even read it??????
RMN MPR - You have to be quick
I’ve been playing this game for a month now and let me tell you, you fall behind, and it’s near impossible to catch back up, just because things move so quickly. In the first month of playing, I’ve had my alliance fall once, have the alliance I joined merge with another, make two allies, made peace with the big guys in the kingdom, wiped another alliance off the face of the kingdom, have said alliance survive a fight with the #2 alliance in the kingdom, seen 7 different fellow officers come and go (currently only have four), and have been asked to join numerous different alliances, all within the span of one month, and these are just the big things that happened. I have since become one of the more powerful players in the kingdom, and I’m still not within the top 100. This game is lots of fun, but fall behind just a little bit, you’re almost better off restarting from the beginning.
A trashcan man - Somewhat flawed but amazing nonetheless
This game has had me hooked since day one. And I’m still here playing religiously over 400 days later since downloading. If you’re looking for a great long-term mobile game this is certainly that. While spending money will boost you nicely free to play players can survive and thrive with relatively generous gems and speed ups given for doing your daily missions and events. The build your city style is nice but far from what this game is all about. The animation and open field battles really will get you hyped and make for an amazing experience with the people you meet in your kingdom and alliance. There are some bugs and overall mishaps made by Lilith but they are understaffed and rather new to this sort of success. That being said they’ve done a wonderful job with what they have and generally fix any issues quickly and give players compensation. 10/10 would recommend.
Hdhdhfhfhcj - Simply appealing
Its a game that requires your investment of time and energy (and money if you feel necessary). This is the aspect of many games that keeps you intrigued to further your progress. I’ve met great people and formulated even greater relationships through its online compatibility so its appreciated. Good gameplay if you can find the right people to actually play with and excel with. A few visual glitches and such but glitches and bugs arent a reasoning behind the number of stars given. I gave it 4 stars because its a good game and captures my attention. I didnt give it 5 stars because things can always improve and personally, I dont want to have to invest as much time into this game to be relevant in the server. That interests certain people and that used to be me but recently ive wanted to have more relaxed gameplay to fit my lifestyle. Ive played this game for months per account so theres some credibility established. Thanks for listening and more so for continuing to develop a great game :)
Parkerekrap - Would’ve been fun
So I just started playing Rise of Civilizations about a week ago, and in my server where all my friends are in my alliance, already don’t want to play anymore. That’s because there are 6 clans that are all talking with each other, who all joined our server when it was first made, and spend money and talk on discord. There are about 300 people who are all talking on discord and trying to take over my server, and I think it ruins the fun and experience of this game. I was looking forward to having a center fortress and expanding, but some of them with already over a million kills came down and are attacking us before we even have 20 people. I think they shouldn’t be allowed to team up in the same server, and have 300+ people be able to control a whole server. A lot of us are already inactive, and the game is no longer fun knowing how fast they are growing and killing anyone else who won’t join. Also, yes there is proof that they are all working together, but it doesn’t matter because I’m sure there’s nothing anyone will do about it. So, as amazing and fun as this game is, I’m not playing it unless they can be removed.
RickyS.🇺🇸 - Amazing but a few problems and suggestions
First off this game is absolutely amazing and gotta admit I thought it would be one of those game companies that would create an ad for their game and the ad look nothing like the game. But I gave it the benefit of the doubt, tried it out, and sure enough I love it. I’m absolutely obsessed with it and even play it for hours when I’m bored, especially during these time of being quarantined. But a problem that I keep coming across with is a high pitched ringing noise while playing the game. I’ve even asked people that I know play the game and they said the same thing. After a couple minutes of the game you can hear a faint high pitched ringing noise, now it might sound like a tiny problem but once you point it out you can’t unhear it and sometimes even will give me a headache. But other than that I absolutely love the game. Thank you for making it!
Luis_ Portillo - Great game but quite unfair
Okay so let me just start this off by saying that this overall is a great game and definitely worth a try it has many great features and super fun but it is quite ridiculous how I spend two months trading troops just to get attacked and lose everything by someone who spends thousands on the game and you absolutely can’t do anything against them , it is quite annoying and they just ruin the fun of the game because you don’t have any chance , I honestly think the game is fun if you spend money but if you just wanna free to play then just don’t you will regret it when you start getting stronger and hit by all those pay to win players you can’t do anything against and you will look st the game and just realize what a waste of time. I do believe that this can be fixed with a power gap that will prevent much higher players from hitting players with much lower power until then I won’t be playing anymore , thanks for who ever took the time to read this and hope you take it into consideration.
Si Monkey - Very good game so far
able to level to rank 8 quickly, graphics are as good as what was shown on the adverts, interesting commanders, simple mechanics, easy alliance system, wonderful free to play dynamic. i can see myself playing this for quite some time and ive been through plenty of knockoff games...honestly the best thing about this game is the narrative goddess woman you meet at the start she actually talks you through it instead of making you read as if its a book with the weird human mmf urrgh ah cartoon noises. also i cant wait to start pulverizing other civilizations!! oh 2 more things...the ages is such a great way to rank up you get to watch as your city thrives from being a village to a monumental history themepark :3 and the fact they busted about 13 million fake/hacking users is the best kinda environmental keeping ive seen since "thatgamecompany"'s "Sky: Children of the Light", their bug team is legit :3
Shaunmc11 - Horrible customer service
Overall a fun game, not perfect but I’m giving 1 star for the horrible customer service and lack of humanity. I recently contacted customer service because I lost 90k gems and wanted to find out where they went. They first said I spend them all on decorations. Only after I provided proof that I do not have any gem decorations in my city or inventory they tell me I spent 90k gems on food, and only food. All of these supposed transactions happened in the extremely early hours which everyone in my house was asleep. My account is secure and no unauthorized access has been made. Their initial explanation was a complete lie which they refused to explain or acknowledge. They constantly ignored my direct questions causing me to ask over and over. The average response took over a day each time and the responses were robotic, scripted, short and uncaring. They obviously don’t care about their customer base and will ignore you and blow you off until you give up.
PS I contacted customer service through their website and did not get ANY response at all after the automated, we have received your request, email.
Seppuku420. k52. - Reason.
The reason why I am giving this game 2 stars, is not because it is not an entertaining game. The game itself is amazing and very fun to play. It’s really what the title says. A game of war and strategy. With that being said. The two stars is mostly because I have been playing the game for a little over 200 days now and have invested some money into it on trying to build up legendary commanders, but yet the rewards you get are not what is expected. Something that you could get for free on Free 2 play you get for a purchase. Legendary commanders are insanely difficult to build up and the only way to do so is by investing massive amount of money. Which is ridiculous if you ask me. It’s a bit unfair that those who sponsor the game will get free rewards and Golden sculptures, rss etc for free while other have to invest. Which, I understand that they are sponsors of the game. But they are no so different from one who isn’t. Not only that, but the amount of time it takes for a building to finish is also ridiculous. It’s got it’s up and it’s down. Other than that the game is fun to play.
Andy12222223636 - Good game
So I have been playing this game for a while now and it’s a great game my only problem is that is you are a free to play person this game can take up to 10 years plus if you casually play it without pay to win there are upgrades that can take up to 100 Plus days to upgrade and 100 days is small there is a lot more than that I get there is speed ups and stuff but that will not help you because you don’t get that much for free unless you pay to get gems and get the 30 day speed ups I feel like there should be a way to help the free to play players and not treat them like the pay to win players there should also be a system for getting better commanders and stuff the only reason I say that is you are limited to the free to play commander and there is much more powerful commander you have to pay in game event to win them and get there sculptures please hit me back with some feed back to any developer thank you 🙏🏻
fortnite player 24601 - Amazing Game!..Would Love to Have More Kingdoms
I love this game. I played it a few years ago, then I got a new phone and just forgot to reinstall it. But a few months ago I started playing it again, and it is even better than I remember. I love that it is a strategy game, but you can reconfigure your base and decorate it, something that is lacking in most other games of its kind. I could rave on and on about the qualities of this game, but there many other reviews that go into much better detail than I, so I’ll get straight to the point. I want more kingdoms. I am very happy with the current selection of kingdoms, but I feel like there could be more added, such as the Mongolian empire, Russian empire, or the Carthaginian empire, or even perhaps a Mayan, or Aztec empire, the list of new potential civilizations goes on and on. So please add at least one or two more empires, it would the game even better!
ms-not-to-please-you - Multiple issues and poor customer support
I have been playing since December 2018. Unfortunately, the developer, Lilith, has been unable to keep up with game maintenance, over these years. For example, the chat system has been bugged since 2018 (ie significant issues with updating and syncing), and now chats work even worse then before. The game is frequently lagging, causing the loss of control over troops and cities. The promised updates in regard to commanders, which lasted not expected 3 but over 5 hours, did not work, creating significant gaps in playing abilities for both p2p and f2p during a KvK. Regrettably, Lilith’s customer service offers with generic, computer-generated responses and, in general, disregards players concerns despite timely communication and supportive documentation (ie screenshots). No adequate compensation has ever been offered or received. If you are a player who values your time and financial investments counted in thousands of dollars, find another game, despite your attraction to ROK. I don’t think an American company would have been able to survive as long as the Chinese-based Lilith. What a shame, truly. This game promised so much.
killjoy2155 - This Game is Amazing !
The game is amazing let’s just get that out of the way first. From how the game is easy to work your way around and learn down to the layout and all it’s good. I come from a game called March of empires which is similar but way too much going on in March of empires compared to this game. The one issue I have is the way the troops are trained. I would prefer to have academy’s to train troops rather than one for each. So I have four training stations one for each type of troop, I would rather be able to select swordsman for all four if I wanted to train four sets of swordsman instead of training one set at the one camp only. We should be able to select which troop we want to train and train as many as we can/want instead of only having one camp per fighting class. So if I wanted a whole Calvary unit trained I should be able to do so but training them in all four camps and so on and so forth. All around game is great and the people are great so far.
Murad954 - Rise of Kingdoms Review
I do enjoy the game, but it was not exactly what I had hoped to play when I first heard about it. I thought that I was going to rule my city, be able to conquer other people, and be an absolute tyrant. I wanted more action. I do not have borders. Borders make it seem more entertaining by highlighting what does not belong to you and which direction you can expand in. Alliance territories are the only borders there, but what separates one city from another. I do not have much freedom. I want to do more than fight barbarians and collect resources. You can attack other cities, but it is too expensive. I want to erect an empire and establish a regime loyal to me. It feels like a collecting game where you get richer and richer and you buy things that look cool, and it happens to be a kingdom-themed game. If you could create your own borders, loyal to your alliance that can be switched to be your own kingdom’s borders, that would be great. If conquering other kingdoms would be less expensive, that would be great. If the game encourages you to conquer and paves a path for fighting, that would be satisfying.
mbugic - Do not buy in this game/unfair gameplay
I don’t even know where to begin. This game was fun only because there was some great people I met. Aside from that my server got messed up really quick. 1389 Kingdom of Fram and I am sure many others are filled with nothing but “whales” members spending their 401k’s to attack and get rid of anyone playing for free or not paying as much. Complete cheating.. the immigration rules make no sense. 60-75 pages for new servers when 1 passport is 5$ and the 2 passport bundle is 10$.. aside from that, making credits through the alliance shop to achieve 800k is nearly impossible since it’s for 1 passport only. If you migrate you’re stuck for 30 days, you can only immigrate backwards and not forwards. You have kings in other servers attacking and wiping out free to play players. So what? You guys are basically promoting people to spend money and even so it’s basically a war as to who has more money. No fun, nothing left in this game. Utter chaos and complete trash. Waste of time, money or any care. If you are going to play, play for free and not for long because you want last long in any server anyways..
Dracoas - Good game but needs improvements
I think these games are good, and this one is not to bad. Ofcourse the pay rate for Americans to the Asian countries different completely. And most of the worlds (servers) are either Chinese based or Korean based. So ofcourse then spending 20 dollars is a lot less to Americans spending 20 dollars. Let’s alone us free to play player tend to truly be outnumbered. I wish you would make a world (server) that is more English speaking based. I seem to notice that most of the English speakers don’t stay long even the ones who do pay to win also cause the translation tool is not always that accurate and very confusing when trying to speak to to each other. 1 big improvement is please make a English based server or organize us by the IP address. To say that you can’t do it means you choose not to cause many games do it with simple ease. Thank you for a good game and hoping that you can help us English speaking gamers out also.
Isaiah Bautista - One of the best games on Mobile
Let’s see here. You probably downloaded this game expecting it to be Age of Empires.
Well, think of it more as a hybrid of Game of War and Age of Empires.
Much like Monster Super League, it takes an already addictive concept and turns it over its head with some amazing gameplay.
The gist is that you are set in a kingdom with other players, and as the kingdom progresses, you are given challenges that let you grow your city faster.
These challenges are fun, and you are often encouraged to interact with other players in the form of alliances. If your thing is diplomacy, this game is top notch.
Even if things get tough, you can always restart with a new city and try again in a newer, fresher kingdom. There are new kingdoms weekly, and you are not limited to how many cities you can create [though you can only possess two per kingdom].
It can be difficult, but not frustratingly so. You can grow at whatever pace you want, but competing with other players and overcoming some of the challenges can be daunting. I wouldn’t go into this expecting a casual experience. It’ll take one or two cities before you get the hang of things.
Overall, it’s a great game. Well designed and still growing. You can’t go wrong with giving it a try, but it is a mobile RTS. Don’t expect Age of Empires levels of gameplay.
A fan of the old app - Great game, needs new platform (macOS)
I’ve played this game for over a year now and play it everyday. Chatting with other people, building your city level and research is a blast, until you finish building/researching and then it’s fun battling other players LOL. There are many commanders and skill trees that has an infinite amount of combinations that will fit your play style. They have a discord and a very helpful customer service especially if you reach the vip customer service level. Five stars for gameplay (other than a few hiccups here and there)
I left this review at 4 stars only because if you start an account on an IOS device you’re stuck in IOS with that account. I’ve tried blue stacks and other emulators to play this game on my MacBook and/or my PC; it’s not possible. If this is updated to allow you to use an account on both an iPhone and a MacBook/PC I would leave a rating at Five stars. I hope this is updated in the near future
NathanHalo11 - Decent game
Early off this is an amazing game with great possibilities but the more you play the more divided the players become eventually the strong 1% of players will take over after about a month and then there is nothing the other players can do but hope they are not attacked by the strong money spending players that control most of the lands. I would love it if there was a ranking system where perhaps different ranked players would go to different maps so you would always be close to your level or give shields after attacks and make bigger maps because there is not nearly enough space so the small alliances are taken out quickly because of the need for the bigger ones growth. The first month of the game is amazing though lots of fun and the vip system I like even though it is a little bit pay to win keeping the vip level is worth it! Would be 5 star if there was practically any player ranking so the smaller players were not demolished constantly for space and resources
AingealWroth - Playground bullies rule...
Even if you manage to get into an Alliance of decent strength, even if you make allies with another Alliance, unless you're willing to sell your soul to one of the tyrant Alliances who are unwilling to let any smaller Alliances posses resources or territory... you can't play. After being forced to move two times, shoved out of the territory we'd rightfully claimed and should have had room to grow in, we were then systematically burned out of our CF. Despite blowing every gem, resource, speedup and troop I had built up in the last month, I couldn't stall them for more than a day. This game is balanced towards two or three large conglomerates ruling each sector, especially if they're willing to spend more time or money than you.
The history is nearly factual, the cultures varied, and the concepts well developed. Unfortunately... What "civ build" there is to this game cannot save it from being a dogfight, ruled by people who need the validation of knocking down Alliances 1/10th their strength.
Don't bother getting invested. To save yourself the ulcers of constant "attacked" or "destroyed" notifications, just don't download it.
Samtheman5515 - Good game kept me entertained for a while
This game is a good game. Most games of this category got me bored quickly but this game (probably because it was easier to get power which gave me more satisfaction) kept me entertained for a while. Also pay to win is present but it’s not that big of an issue. Unlike most games where I just stopped advancing after reaching a certain level I kept advancing. I did get bored after a while and deleted it but it will entertain you for a while. However the English is very bad and there are grammar mistakes everywhere (plus it sounds unprofessional the way it’s typed.) In the description for one commander it just cut off abruptly in the middle of his description but other then that it’s a great game. 5 stars for great gameplay -1 star for bad grammar and getting boring after a few months. (Note: I deleted this game at the beginning of December 2018 so I don’t know if anything changed that would affect my rating.)
livnster - Migration
So I know Lilith just has some puppet answering these reviews with a premade message. But in the small chance you guys actually take in game feedback, the migration system is ruining the game. It needs to be tweaked, I recently started a new account on a new kingdom, just for fun while I wait for my second kvk. Are you guys aware that if anyone gets in an argument or dispute they just migrate away from the kingdom? There’s no war anymore, there’s no fighting anymore. If someone is afraid they’ll get attacked or burned for talking trash, they just migrate away. Seriously? You guys understand the repercussions are any new players to the game aren’t going to experience any of the war or battle until their first kvk. Fix your system. The top alliance in our kingdom asked the whole kingdom to let them capture LT for first capture, we said no and we wanted to fight for it. Their whole alliance migrated LOL. You guys serious? Do you guys think about stuff before you implement it or do you just use the real game as your test server?
quitesix - P2w at its worst
I love the game and the game play it a perfect game but then you have people that just buy there way to the end game first day the sever opens you have people close to 1million power this would take a regular player at least 3 weeks if you play 24/7 like I do 3 days in and there are people with near maxed city’s that just raid everyone but the second strongest witch they join and will win and all the players will quit and there you have it a dead sever please someone make a game that you pay monthly to pay with no in app purchases other than cosmetics I hope when runescape comes out they don’t pull this crap i hope everyone just stops playing games with in app purchase what’s the point if you buy a game that starts at the end p2w is killing online games I wish I could give this no star same as all the strategy game on the App Store don’t was your time
SamiQson - Really addictive!
I was searching for a game like “age of empires” for mobile, but all the strategic games in mobile are like “clash of clans”!!!
This Game that I’m addicted to it, is something between the old school strategic games like age of empires or lord of the rings, and new games like clash of clans, BUT this game has unlimited maps! when you wanna fight, it’s not about chance, You know where is your location, and your enemy’s location, you can help to your allies by “sending troops” or “sending resources”!!!
in this game, alliances are enjoyable, because you have many many jobs and upgrades to do!
forexample some alliances upgrade their research jobs and everyone in their alliance can research things faster! but some alliances upgrade their fighting strategies and everyone in their alliance can have bigger army, but you can gathering resources on wild maps and trade with others lonely, IT DEPENDS ON YOU & YOUR STRATEGY!
AirCon999 - Customer service
The game play is very good but the customer service is terrible. I had a couple of issues that I needed customer service help with so I reached out. I never heard back. I am still waiting at least for some type of answer from an issue a month ago. I also have an issue migrating even tho I met all the requirements and all of my friends migrated but it will not let me migrate. Now I’m stuck and all my friends are not there anymore. I tried customer service chat but got no response, I tried to email but got no response, and I tried to message on their Facebook and still got no response. I’ve invested a lot into this game and assumed that I would at least get a response from them but I got nothing. I am really upset about the fact that it shows you’d you that there is customer service but in reality there isn’t one. If you plan on investing anything into this game, make sure your prepared not to get customer service assistance if you run into a problem because there isn’t any customer service. You will not get any assistance from them. Absolutely none.
IdeasHelga - Glitchy Software combined with poor support :(
So it pains me to write this review because the game could be great. It’s engaging and kendo’s you busy. Sadly though the downsides overtake the good. The game is pay to play in the extreme. Unlike other games where spending money will result in speed ups and bypassing cumbersome steps, spending money in RofC equals winning. You can literally spend you way to winning, with no skill or dedication required. It’s a model that obviously works for them at the moment but inside of a couple months it has me looking for another game. The next problem are the bugs. You are eligible fore rewards if you do certain things, pathetically the system makes lots of mistakes so that more than once I have worked to achieve something and then the rewards don’t happen. The final strike is customer service. It’s available very limited hours and they don’t really help. I am continually disappointed in the lame responses I get to legitimate concerns problems and requests. After a couple months I am feeling very done with them.
Mason_42 - Amazing
This game is amazing and everybody should get it. That’s that. However I have a few suggestions. When you are in an alliance (which not being in one is stupid, as you become an easy target, don’t get any bonuses resources or support, and miss out on Great opportunities and being a part of a family. But I digress, so when you are in an alliance, there isn’t much to fight besides barbarians, which pose no threat, or people, but you are attacking for often times no reason and it’s frowned upon by many alliances. There should be more encouragement to fight each other and kill barbarians, maybe by offering better reward and barbarians being able to attack your city (which could be countered by destroying there forts and stopping there spawning). There just needs to be more things to attack so you can try out your new units or your rapidly growing army. Thanks for your time
MrRangard - K H Ã N
RoK is a very enjoyable game that I have put many hour into but feel their customer support is lacking causing me to give them a 3/5 review. I have spent over $2000 USD on this game but have recently been getting an issue where I can’t purchase more than one or two bundles and have to wait a whole day to been able to again purchase I or two bundles that I want to max in order to gain the benefits.
The message I keep receiving is “issue connecting to iTunes server” where as I have no issue purchasing anything on the iTunes and App Store as I’ve made multiple purchase to check whether that was the issue.
Please improve your customer services and respond at least within a day to a query as a heavy spender on this game the poor customer service is what is causing me to quit which is in no way a loss to me but to RoK as I was willing to spend the same amount or more. If there’s a way to contact someone directly to solve this issue or guide me I would be grateful.
MattRob1126 - A fun and rewarding experience, only to be ruined by P2W
Let me start of by saying that this game is incredible at its core. The overall gameplay and player-to-player interactions are very well done. The game rewards you handsomely for participating in basic events, and it doesn’t feel like you have to spend any money at all.
The strategy aspect of this game would be a 5/5, but due to P2W players, it doesn’t matter. You could have the best communication in your alliance, veteran players, and very good battle coordination, but if the other players spend 100s of dollars they will have more powerful troops and be able to take you out easily.
-Decent graphics for a mobile game
-Alliance interactions are the best in any mobile game I have played
-Huge server with events always in effect
-Translation feature is extremely helpful!
-Unfair gameplay vs P2W players, impossible to win.
-The grind for commander Exp can be ridiculous the higher you go.
-More PVE interactions, perhaps with events or new enemies.
I love this game, met some great people who also love this game. We all agree that there has to be something done with the P2W players. So we suggest you consider releasing a server with an even playing field. For example, a server without boosts or pay to win mechanics. Let the players be on a level playing field, so if you win, it’s because of skill, communication, and coordination, not because you spent 1000s or dollars.
blugrsvt - Addicting would give it 5 but...player lvl power cap needed!
A fun game. You don’t “need” money, but it probably helps a lot at times. I myself have not used a penny, but I wish I could, just not in a position to. I’m a pc gamer, so to enjoy a tablet game so much...means it’s good. Definitely revolves around team work and making sure you’re with the right alliance. The regular kill events are my biggest issue. You end up getting attacked by players much much higher in level than you often, which forces you to use the assets found in game & once those run out (ohhh after 3 of these “kill events”) you’re then constantly rebuilding, gathering more resources etc. This is my biggest issue with the game. The devs should really place a cap on attacking lower tiers. A lvl 10 player should not have to get bullied & beaten up because s lvl 30 player sees easy an meal in a lower lvl player...that is my biggest gripe. Put a cap on player vs player battles.
ayewayway - It has depth but needs bug fixes
I’ve been playing for almost 4 months now and it’s fun when you understand the concept and develop a good relationship with a clan. Not my first experience in this type of game but so far it has elements like an MMO yet it’s simple to execute.
A lot of people complain about whaling or spenders creating a disadvantages for free 2 play. Yes that is true but that is when you need to identify these people and befriend them. Whales are who go to the front lines the most during wars, I seen it first hand in KvK. But they need F2P to fill rallies, hit help, build buildings. Just like how in real society there are rich CEOs and blue collar workers. Need to find a harmony and work together.
I made some good friends on here while being socially isolated in real life due to pandemic. Def hope to see bug fixes on events, variety of commanders, more ways to obtain sculptures and commanders for free to play. Thanks for reading.
Connor Wasmer - The game is poorly designed
I had a lot of fun when I first started the game. But now I constantly get raided over and over again by the same people, every time they raid me I loose crops wood and stone. I lose 70k wood crops and stone every time I get spam raided over and over again. They do it more than 10 times a day and I’m powerless to stop them my characters are too weak and in order to level up I need resources. But I can’t do that if they keep taking it from me. When I turned level 8 I had 3.4 million crops 3.1 million wood and 2 million stone, this was before my peace shield ran out. I now have 100k wood 120k crops 80k stones. I’ve lost all motivation to play now. I even had my friends join me and play the game as a alliance. But all 3 of us can’t stop them from the constant raiding. It’s a endless cycle of gaining and losing with no reward. I am at level 10 now but I can’t make any progress, simply because they have destroyed my wall down to a 1000 health and I can’t repair it because there is a wait timer for some awful reason. I got hooked on this game and now I can’t even play it 😐
Forgotten4ever - Fun game, but needs more commanders and help players
This a very engaging game that I’ve played in a while. However, my one main issue is that I wish the civilizations came with their own commanders. I know that each one has their own starting commander, but I think that the immersion would be better if players could only get commanders that originate from the player’s chosen civilization. I chose Rome, so I assumed that I would be getting famous Roman generals and emperors as my commanders.
Edit: After playing for a few months, my enjoyment is slowly waning because of it’s hard to get resources when dealing with other players who just wanna bully others. It’s one thing to fight for resources. It’s a whole different story when attacking a player’s Tripp’s and don’t even bother getting the resource. All it does is have players repeatedly check on their troops for attacks, and then constantly dwindle their own resources to heal troops.
dennisllc - Why I Give it 2 stars
The game is good all in all and i like the overall aspect about it. Just the very basis of choosing your own country of origin and developing it to represent your pride and power has already caught on to me when i started playing the game. I’ve progressed pretty well in the game and I have been enjoying ever since. But the only problem i find with the game is all the bugs from it. I can’t enjoy the game to the fullest extent everytime the game crashes and refreshes in order for me to play again. I don’t think that the issue if my device because I’ve played games that takes far more memory than this game and it never crashes. I would give it 5 stars all in all the game is good,only if I find that problem to be fixed.
Update: Why I give it 1 star
Just an hour later and the crashes have been worsening i cant even play regularly without it crashing every 2 mins. I regret giving it a review thats even lower because of how good the game is. The crashes have been so ridiculous up till the point where I feel as if I should go lower than 1 star.

Defund the #TrumpCrimeFamily
@itoldusodummy @RandyRRQuaid It is God, the One with all power, who will have the final say. God is the one allows the rise & fall of kingdoms. If Trump is given a second term, he will be the president. If Joe is sworn in instead, he will be my president.
True Christians’ faith should rest in God, not man.
@gshah30 @SherryK38825038 @_Aliways @timesofindia Islamic invaders..lolol..it only makes me laugh..people have always longed to expand their kingdoms in hope for a better quality of life and control more land..its just a way of life..rather it is you crying over your past..kingdoms rise and fall..learn to move on..

@JohanNohr y'all ever awaken a foul thing from the slumbering ages, watching it rise and lay wastes to the kingdoms of men but for the efforts of one angel on a rocky bridge, a lone maiar against a forgotten servant of melkor?
