Amosc: Tmalone30 - Fun
Hey devs and other people viewing this. This is a fun game I’ve met people etc, and there’s very fun things that I love about this game, I’ve maybe have been playing about a 3-4 weeks. But there’s one thing that I absolutely hate and recommend that you get rid of is (immigration) My kingdom that i just started in I’m around 1 mil has been flooded with people from different kingdoms. Yes it brings fun and etc but when three different alliances do it , it messes up a lot of things. A lot of my friends and people I’ve met off this game quit because these alliances decimated new beginning one and other alliances from the same kingdom. Today passes open and only one of the original alliances got a pass. This concept can really ruin a lot of players fun for the game. Especially alliance hopping and etc it just ruins a lot of things for people who are still learning about the game. You should really consider fixing the immigration system and maybe trying something else new or just throw it out the window. Like I mean the second our kingdom opened up to immigration it was taken over. All aside from that this game is decent. It’s fun addicting but you can ruin a lot of people fun by doing that. Or putting newer players into kingdoms that have already started and are almost finished. It’s disappointing honestly how the rewarding system honors cheap play. Good day to you devs I’m not mad and I’ll still play I’m just disappointed.
Clxudy_rose - I love this game
So I don’t usually write a review but I needed to write one so I love this game I play 2-3 hours a day or all day and my family think it’s weird of me playing for that long and I usually play for 25 minutes each day but I play more than that on this game I have had it for a year now and it’s amazing and I love everything but there are a few things that I don’t like but it’s not a big deal so number 1. When you train your troops it also takes away your wood and food and I really don’t like that but like I said before it’s not a big deal. Number 2. I don’t like how you have to wait a lot on updating your castle like you have to wait at least 30 days or more and went your going to level 11 on your castle you have to wait a day for that like I don’t think you have to wait that long just to upgrade. Number 3. I know for a fact that a lot of people will agree with this and it’s editing your space so I know people like doing that but like once you are done like it won’t let you because you have to finish your lay out let’s just call it like that and it has happened a lot I would really appreciate it if you would fix that. Number 4. I really don’t like how you have to be at level 8 and up to attack I really think you should be at level 7 and up but rather than that I think you should download this game it’s really fun and I love playing it thank you for reading my review have a nice day ❤️
Rowan22787 - Super fun game (two problems)
OK I have played this game for about a year now and I love it there’s always something to do. You’re never bored, there’s always new events always something to upgrade. Unlike other games in this genre, however the kingdom that I’m in or pretty much any kingdom there’s always a bully alliance. For instance the one that I am in the bully alliance is 94RG. They try and control everything including KVK, and if somebody doesn’t listen to them, then they go ahead and kill everyone and ruin the game experience for everybody. It’s totally not fun and I feel like once you reach the top you should only be allowed to stay there for a certain amount of time and then get knocked back down. Second problem, everything costs money, if you want to upgrade or get a good commander it’s money, if you want to upgrade something and not wait a month it’s money and so on… But other than that this game is incredibly good and I literally have 375 consecutive login days. I’m part of one of the top alliances. Definitely one of the best games I’ve ever played and I’m going to continue playing it for a very long time. And for anyone debating on whether to get this game or not, and if it’s going to be like all the others. It’s way better in my personal opinion and I would definitely recommend getting it. Hope this helps keep on going guys
Every name is taken17481846194 - I genuinely think this is the best game overall
So you might read the title of this review and think I’m crazy, but just hear me out. Rok has educational content that is fun and engaging. You most people think this game is only for people that like or know about history but it doesn’t have to be. My friend who doesn’t know ANYTHING about history or difeerent civilizations started playing ROK with me. We made alliances, different accounts, and it didn’t keep us inside all day. We went outside and after hours we started playing ROK. Then after that we went back outside. There is leveling up and upgrading your base for players like me and many others. There are educational videos and paragraphs you can read about ancient commanders and rulers. You can meet new people like I have. It’s so easy to make new friends in this game! Also, you can go to the notice board in the game and talk to people or post pictures just like social media. Even the ads got better! Instead of misleading animations, they now help players learn how to progress in the game. What I’m saying is there is something for everyone, it doesn’t matter if your 6 or 70, live in Europe or South America. Don’t forget the team working on this game just for us, and it’s COMPLETELY FREE TO PLAY. This is definitely the best game in the world overall. Don’t hate on this game because everyone else is. Thanks ROK team!
Jackson24168 - This game is special…
I usually don’t write reviews but I had to for this game,I usually hate games like sim city where you upgrade your city, but this game separates itself from the rest. First off there is the “pick your own civilization” thing where you pick your first general and it gives a special boost to a special attribute which I thought was awesome. Second, there is the the alliance system where you can help people in your alliance and it speeds Theo build process up, which I figured would take up some of your recourse or you could only do a certain amount a day, but no there is no harm to do it so people are constantly helping with your building times. Lastly and this is my favorite thing, is how many boosts you get completely free just for playing. I’ve played for about 2 hours a day for three days and I have like 150 1 minute build speed ups (which lets you cut the build time by however much the boost is, 1 minute will cut by 1 mi hte 5 minute will cut by 5 minutes etc) and I have like 50 5 minute build speed ups. I haven’t really noticed any long builds, mostly just long upgrades but it is nice to not have t wait for three hours for your workers to build something you need to progress. I would honestly give 5 stars if the game reduced the update time a little bit but overall a great game
Octiveon - Dear Lilith Games…
You produce advertisements that reflect on game content and to promote said content, this is what I’ve read in every review criticizing your adverts. This is not true, the content is typically poorly produced and does not reflect the new in-game content. You form the adds in a way that gives off the illusion that some kingdoms are far superior than others, leading to less diversity in the game because every new player wants to be the best. Now, you do reflect how the basics of how the game works in the adds, so that is something I will credit you for. Although, the content viewed is extremely repetitive, showing nothing new. And the BIGGEST problem, is the amount of advertising for this game. You haven’t shown new content in them, you haven’t shown any reasons this game is better than others, the quality is abominable (lip syncing, animating almost everything so there is limited actual gameplay, stupid situations, repetitive gameplay, and generally irritating “storylines”) If I’ve gotten nearly 80 Rise of Kingdoms advertisements in a week, I probably wouldn’t want to download it. I used to play AFK Arena, but after seeing your new advertisements for the game, I’m deleting it, for I’m frankly embarrassed that I even put any time in the game. Fix your problems, and maybe I’ll consider you a quality game producer, instead of a uninteresting, money hungry developer. -Hoping for change, and awaiting something new. This review was made by a active “gamer”.
Dont know21 - It’s good but can be really unfair
I’ve had to come back 3 times to edit this because I found new stuff. First I spent $15 in this game, It’s a good and interesting game that I play a lot throughout the day but somehow people go up to 2.8 million power after almost 4 weeks, I’m only at 1.5 million and I started on the first day the kingdom went up. Then there’s all these big alliances kinda forcing you to be an academy or merge with them that are at 60 million power? Can anyone explain any of this? I also practically made my alliance on the first day but it got up to 14 million and then got wiped out because I wouldn’t merge that’s just not fair they need to put more rules in against bullying little alliances. Also there’s individual people with 16 million power or more in a 27 day kingdom. Also I just saw someone leave an alliance in the kingdom chat saying to his old 61 million power alliance that he’s sorry I’m not into attacking little alliances that are at only 3 million one person from his old alliance said we never did that but then he joins another alliance because I saw his alliance tag change then a few minutes later after saying that he lost his new alliance tag and said I could send him an invite into my new alliance because he doesn’t have one so what I’m saying is if the big powered alliances are really friendly then you saying just one thing and that isn’t that big of a deal and leaving that alliance will cut off youre ties with the other big alliances.
Bakerstwo - New players beware: Rigged for paying players - developers don’t care
I had liked the game because you get to build and fight barbarians sometimes other players but the problem is that the big paying players are so big they crush you and don’t let you expand or play. You work long and hard to grow your city or alliance and the big ones team together to destroy smaller ones. They sometimes join a weaker alliance to attack another weak alliance and after destroying them they go back to their big alliance. Other times they just attack a smaller alliance directly. So what’s the point! You think they would just fight each other - big to big instead of big to small. Instead these big alliances support each other. In fact some blantantly ask for your credit card or cash to join their alliance and all the developers say is oh we recommend don’t share personal data. The developers don’t tell those alliances that they shouldn’t ask for people’s cash or credit card information to join! So again it’s rigged for big paying customers.
I’m not opposed to spending a little if you want to speed up a few things but here it does nothing for you because they want you to spend a lot of money. Oh well, that’s fine since they want to earn a ton of money but at least people should know. It was fun for a while but it’s pointless if you don’t balance out the game a bit.
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
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.
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.
Milkman_karlson - The ads are absolutely nothing like the game
The game play itself isn’t the best but it definitely is not terrible. The one thing that makes me (and everyone I know) hate this game are the ads, the ads are awful and whatever you call clickbait for games. They are the most clickbait, awful, scummy, annoying ads. I can’t express enough how clickbait these ads are and I’m warning everyone who plays this IT IS NOTHING LIKE THE GAME! The ads started out fine saying you start with a kingdom and work your way up to be among the best of the kingdoms, but now they say stuff like “oH nO mY kInGdOm Is UnDeR aTtAcK i’M gOnNa HaVe To FlEe” which is another thing you can’t do in this game you can’t do anything it says you can in the ads. It is the most scummy thing I’ve ever seen, it gets little kids to think they’re gonna play a really cool kingdom game where you play as a king roaming around the kingdom, but when they get it they just get a mediocre game that you only really play once and has very little game mechanics. I know that the developers won’t respond because they are a bunch of low life scum bag cowards, so here is a message to the developer- Reply to me like a man and I don’t want some robot auto response I want a real human response and demand to change the ads so they are not clickbait, otherwise you will be a coward for not responding to me and a scum bag for scamming kids. I bet that makes you feel good, scamming kids.
Markminn - Fun but game not balanced
I’ve played RiseOfKingdoms for about 14 days now. The game is easy to learn to a degree. It teaches you how to play while you play. The game seems pretty stable at least on the server-side. But my client crashes about once a day. The game implements mechanics for civilization development and warfare. It can be fun to play for hours and hours. You don’t have to pay to play but doing so is highly encouraged by the game itself. I tend to dump about five dollars a day into the game, but it has packages that you can buy that cost 10 times or even 50 times more! My number one criticism of the game is that it can be extremely unbalanced from a gameplay perspective. For example there can be a character or a player that is 50 times as powerful as 99% of the other players! The game has PVE & PVP play. Unfortunately you can’t get away from PVP in most situations. In my 14 days of play I have encountered Goku, Who is a player that is 50 times as powerful as me. He moves through the land and decimates everything takes all the loot moves to the next area and repeats. I thought meeting GOKU was like getting struck by lightning the first time, but I’ve already encountered him twice. I encourage you to give it a try!
IamHalfprice - Great game but short for f2p
This is an amazing game and honestly I don’t have many negative opinions towards it. The problem comes when you are f2p. Upon entering a new server you will have approximately a month before you are essentially pushed out of a lot of end game content because you are viewed as being “too weak” compared to the players that have bought their way to having very high power. They will eventually all group together and keep you from being able to join a lot of the later content. As a F2P player you have you find yourself being content with the constant threats of being kicked out of stronger alliances because of low power since you can’t keep up with spenders and eventually being kicked out or being content with just farming and doing the same round of events every few weeks. Kingdom vs Kingdom won’t happen in most cases because you won’t be allowed. I’ve started in many many different servers over the past 2 years and it always happens the same way. If you can afford to pour money into this game, then I totally recommend it. If your like me and can’t afford to spend tons of money on a mobile game then go in understanding that after around a month, maybe a little longer, your going to be seen as useless because you won’t be able to keep up with the spenders.
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.
Frhfdfg - Bug Fixes and new suggestions!!
Hi Dev Team of RoK! As you might have thought that there were not any bugs, there’s one I wanna share with you. So you know when you press the alliance button it goes to your alliance right? (if you have one) Well when you press shop in your alliance and try to restock something, And if you tap something at the top and scroll down to the bottom and tap something else, then that something at the top will still have that white border and will allow you to tap on multiple stuff. I had fun with the bug but then got annoyed quickly. Please fix this. Ok about the new mode. How about a bowling mode that allows you to bowl for prizes using currency such as items or such short. A new feature on the world map would be bushes!! A player can hide from someone if they are in a bush but it costs 1k coins to check a bush and that’s how you can reveal the player. If the player notices this then he gets a warning (you know, the red things on the side!) and can make a run for it while being invisible for 3 seconds! Now how about that! Please add these features!! I put a lot of time in this review and I love this game and adding these would make it better!!
One of Many 999 - Excellent game but one huge downside
I love this game and really love to play it. Now there is one huge downside in this game and there is a easy way to fix it. Probably the most asked question: is this a pay to win game and the awnser is no, but you will never become great in this game and will be over looked unless you play 10 hours a day which for some people is the way to go. An easy way to fix this is to make free to play kingdoms where for example only people who have spent less than 40 dollars are allowed to enter. This would fix everything because it gives us a chance to really become great in this game and show what we are made of. Without it we just are the lowest players and achieve nothing or feel like that, because there are people that gain the might that you have in 200 days in less than a week. This game has done a great job of giving the chance to free to play players but it needs to go further to really give us the real feel of game play. Also the kingdom needs players who are very strong and that’s why I introduced that people who have spent a little money can still be seen as free to play which is essential for the game developers and players.
PghIgirl - Good Game, Bad Culture
Hmmm…my original review was deleted, I guess I hit a nerve with the developer. I’ll try again.
I’ve only played RoK a few days and so far it seems like the best game in this genre, unfortunately there is one game-breaking exception: jumpers. The game enables players to change servers indefinitely as long as their city hall doesn’t surpass level 7. It’s created a weird culture in the game where every new kingdom is flooded with people who have strong accounts and create a significant imbalance from the get-go. There is an event during the first week with rewards based on the most powerful, etc.—the jumpers go to the new kingdom, get all the top rewards, bully people then leave to do it again in the next kingdom. Sometimes some of the jumpers decide to stay and since they’ve already been building their accounts for months, they automatically dominate the kingdom. It’s also difficult to find an active alliance as a new player because of all the jumper alliance requirements. Either you spend or you end up in a dead alliance.
RoK could easily level the playing field by capping the number of days new accounts are able to jump. Only allowing someone to move to a new server during the first 3 days of an account would eliminate the problem. It doesn’t seem likely the developer will ever do that though since “jumping” seems to be the vast majority of the player base.
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).
Myth143 - I ENJOY PLAYING THIS GAME MORE THAN I ENJOY MAKING MY PARTNER HAPPY!!
I truly love this game. Now I am NOT “a gamer” and neither is my man. So when I say I play A LOT it’s not what you think. But still he gets jealous even if he isn’t in the same room as me and my phone dies, hence I enjoy playing this game more than making him happy.
This game is ALWAYS exciting, never gets old with all the new events to play almost everyday and always every week! Things to discover, commanders to adjust to perfections. Side games, new goals, alliance strength and honestly made some great online friends on hère.
Most Leaders and almost ALL R4 will help and we have some of the BEST to helps noobs or those who are trying it to improve with new tips and tricks! I send out mknthkh to bimonthly Codes for Freebies Flm You can join 16GI Gold International presently I have been given the opportunity to be the Leader and. Oh do. I have some surprise in store, our very own side games and quizzes JUST for our alliance! My motto is you do you, chill or kill just help fulfill! By that I mean make your donations to the alliance research, and partake in Rally’s in your on. So much more to come of 16GI Gold international you gotta stay to play in a whole NEW way!
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.
BewareBeforeDownloading - Unfair Game - Beware
Rise of Kingdoms is a game where you cannot make fully maxed legendary heroes even after you play it for 2 years. If you don't spend 1000 dollars a month for the game, forget the competition. You will lose the war. You will lose the achievements. You will never get the city rewards because you have to be in top 10 for every event. Big spenders will always take away your rewards and you will always have to wait and grind.
With this last update, you cannot even grind. If you want to play a free game, choose a different game. I suggest you can play Black desert or Metin2. Because Rise of kingdoms brought up this crystal material to upgrade your technology and you cannot make fully crystal technology unless you spend 2235 dollars. You have to pay two thousand dollars to be competitive player. Because without crystals you cannot have the bonusses to fight at all. You will just be a punching bag for the whales. AND this game will reset and take away your crystal every month to make sure you have to buy it again for the next fight.
Also, the game will always match your kingdom with bigger and stronger kingdoms that are paying less than you, and they still get the same amounts of material just because their currency and country is different.
The customer service is also the worst in the world. They will never respond to you properly. They will always ignore you.
👊👌✌ - 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.
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!
Se7hw1ns - If you’re thinking about playing read this first
I played this game for a maybe 5 months, so I’m not just making this up, if you’re a free to play player you’re screwed. Plain and simple this game is not made for you, sure you can have a lot of fun and play with your friends but even if you put in 30 bucks a month on gems or anything like that you are no match for the whales your server will have. Don’t get me wrong this game was great and I enjoyed playing it, but once a clan has more than one or two players that are well over at least 30,000,000 than the closest players you’re pretty much not going to stand a chance against them. At that point the game is no longer fun because these whales will absolutely smash you and your whole clan in less than an hour, they aren’t scared to spend hundreds of more dollars to train troops or heal them to use to beat you down.
With all this said, don’t play this game unless you’re okay with getting absolutely manhandled after building up your own clan and base for a few months. I agree with what another reviewer put and don’t think I would return to this game unless they implemented a free to play friendly server.
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.’ 🙂🤷🏻♀️
Amongusbb - Good game
This is actually good but just to say that the ads about it seem to be nothing compared to the game but some ads show like ways to improve in the game, which I like. I’ve been playing for some time and it’s pretty cool… But some ads show some people with millions of power, I understand the progress. But, getting resources is key because it will help you with the tech tree more because being bankrupt in resources means that you have to get all your way back to your place. Other things I liked to talk about the civilizations. The game with having all these civilizations but I chose Rome because ads suggested me about its ability, but I realized that Spain is pretty better because giving a way higher change in resources, I’ve been trying to change my civilization to Spain but the main thing is that you'll need to grind a-lot! Some ways I’ve gotten gems where by a survey, but to be real, I think overall this game is good but I hope the devs don’t continue these fake versions of the real game because you see these hate vids making jokes about ad vr reality and really wish for more updates soon too the game. Now, Byeeee!
Eddie1234567890987654321 - Great game…but a few problems
RoK is a great game and I spend hours a day on it. There is always something you can do so I am never bored. There are so many great things about this game that I love… 1. Great way to meet new people 2. All the various events like the mightiest governor and warpath are fun to accomplish 3. Having you and your allies send armies to take out shrine guardians and barbarian camps. 4. Wars…fighting other governors is so much fun (and can be stressful waiting to see if they will strike back) and taking down other alliances There are a few issues though… 1. Sometimes the game crashes when I try to switch between chats 2. It is super unfair when a really strong person joins another alliance you are in a war against and attacks all your alliances cities and resource points and then goes back to their original alliance 3. Troop training time is WAY TOO LONG. Please make it shorter because I hate waiting about 12 hours for 900 lvl 3 units. Thanks for the great game!
So I am forced to drop my rating a star because the customer service is poor and is SUPER UNHELPFUL. Also it says the game is for people 9+, but it is not true. I would not let your kids play this game until they put a content moderation thing in the chat because a lot of it is not kid friendly.
[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.
Chase Koger - I was skeptical..
That this would be another boring CoC type game. And while it is, it’s far from boring. I find myself actually having fun gathering several items on the large playable map all while leveling up my commanders and having fun with my friends in my alliance. I would highly recommend it. The only issue that I see is late game players with very high power moving to new kingdoms, and destroying lower level people who have just began. If there were a Power Cap to when you can teleport, or a time limit depending on how long you’ve stayed in the server, this would help that issue. But other than that, this game is still rather fun.
EDIT: Many months later. I believe there’s a limit to teleporting now, which is good. But the only thing I really have to add since i’ve gotten back into the game is that the ads are obnoxious and don’t really capture the essence of the game, but it still IS a GOOD game nonetheless, ads aside. Note: I stopped playing months back simply because I was burnt out over time, not because it was frustrating or anything like that. I like Vikings so coming back with a new kingdom is pretty fun this time around once again.
Elijah Schade - Game needs serious management fixes
The server my friends and I were put in is full of Asian whale accounts that spend thousands of dollars on the game and make several Alliances that are all under their “family.” This is oppressive and makes it impossible to do anything meaningful with my friends. At first when the server started, it was good, but they’ve blown up and own well over half the map. Can’t even transfer to other servers because this game’s requirements are so strict.
The game is a lot of fun but it has absolutely no filter for people that make it impossible for new players. When these alliances just trade their City Hall 21 accounts between each other and stomp everyone that is five or more city hall levels below them, it’s impossible to do anything. I wish that the developers actually cared about providing a fun and fair challenge to this game instead of letting these abusive players walk all over them.
That being said, if you’re planning on playing anyway, do NOT come to server #2310. It is a nightmare here and there is nowhere on the map that is safe. You can’t even harvest resources without players that are millions of power above you sending their armies to annihilate your gatherers. I hope other servers are better than this because it’s not even remotely fair.
Charles Ah Kuoi - Customers mean nothing
This game is exactly what it looks. Grab and bait. I’ve played this game for 3 years. Let me break it down of how Lilith ruined this game. First year when this game came out, this game was fun and enjoyable. Players received a lot of rewards from events, drop rates of gems from barbarians were amazing and etc. Lilith decided to add an update that “prevented” boting but in reality hindered fighters from helps and making players have to use a lot speeds to heal or buy bundles for speeds. Later, Lilith decided to nuke rewards and introduce SOC and crystal tech. As if this game was bad enough as it was for being P2W. Now you must buy crystal bundles to max tech in order to compete against whales in the field. Such a rip off. As I decided to quit the game and update was added to give players the quit button for Apple users. I asked Lilith to delete my account and erase my personal information. Guess what? Lilith has once again made it extremely impossible to do something simple. They have asked me so much information and once I have provided that info, they said no and that my account was a VIP account. I warn everyone, beware of this rip off company. They DO NOT care about their community that gives them money, always finding ways to squeeze money out of players and will do whatever it takes to make your life difficult.
Locker9899 - Full of Bullying
Just stop lying! This game is just a pay-to-win game. And the early player takes all. If you are a beginner, none of the powerful alliance will let you join. So, in the beginning, you don’t have any of gaming experiences. You will be just like a farmer, farm, build, and upgrade yourselves. The funny thing is: this stupid game’s event follows Asian time zone. I’m in the U.S., and their events start in the late evening or early morning. Excuse me? It is just a game, not real life! Why should I suffer for rest less to play a game? Moreover, you will see thousands of crazy gamers here playing over days and nights. They will blame you for not contributing yourselves if you are not playing like them. Even in the kvk event, 90% of the fights start in the midnight or early morning. Well, if your power is under $25 Million, and you don’t have gold/orange commanders with gold/orange equipments, you are just giving killing points to the enemies. You will spend millions of resources and hundreds of days to treat or rebuild your troops. This game is good at killing your money by making every useful item chargeable. And, this game has many millionaires and billionaires. They seem like they can spend $100k or more every week or month to this game, and you will never be able to catch them. So, save your money and mood, don’t play this game. It is a fraud, no fairness.
AntAnt619 - Rigged scam
First and foremost don’t get scammed into paying for any aspect of this game. All servers are controlled and ran by a Lilith team with their crew holding king and top alliances. They won’t admit to this kind of shady business but you will figure it out yourself. Most Chinese server games work like this where there will be a manager that profits off the sales. Second thing is once they’re done with you or don’t see you spending money they’ll want you gone. There is a black market where people sell accounts. Lilith doesn’t lose if you sell an account you pumped 20-80k in since the new user will end up purchasing fate changer packages and force other to do the same. You’re literally burning money when you go to war in this game. Third and final thing is if do you end up joining a new server and whaling expect to be beaten by a Lilith crew member who won’t lose actual dollars. It costs over 30k+ just to jump to t5 before kvk1. If you don’t quit they will pressure you during kvk wanting more out of you which you guessed it will cost you thousands of dollars…
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.
-GERMANY- - Crashing every 10 seconds, since last August
Hello. I’ve been playing Rise Of Kingdoms since January of 2019, predominantly as the German civilization. From January 2019 - July of this year, I’ve virtually had no problem in playing the game in any aspect (especially farming barbarians) . Ever since late August though, I’ve been having severe crashing issues with the game, where it would crash literally every 10 - 15 seconds. It has put a severe damper on barbarian massacres, as well as everything else I use to daily do in that game and onto my kingdom. Also, if it matters, I have an iPhone 6 Plus, so if that matters at all as to why it’s been crashing way more than usual - than fine. Even though I got this iPhone like, literally a few days - to half a week before I first installed this game. So...i don’t really know, if you all see this, i’m hoping you could put in some other kind of update to officially fix the crashing issue. Overall though, this is a really fun game, it’s just that the crashing issue has (as I said earlier) put a very severe damper on my general enjoyment of the game as a whole.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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. 😉
Macorroni150 - Things you should add
This game is really good I love it it’s so addicting and overall and great player experience; and when you play you can learn about history and feel like your in history. Except me because nobody likes me anyway, here are some things the game should add
1. in the game it can be really bland when fighting someone with your army overtime so the game should have different ways of fighting like for example in those little caves you can find not those treasure caves this revive thing that are in certain places on the kingdom. It would be cool to set army’s in there than you can sneak attack your enemies. Or you can battles where your bowmen and sieges on mountains and shoot projectiles at your enemies or like bowmen on top of the tips of trees to snipe enemies.
2. There should be more places you can roam around on. What I mean is there should be a mechanic to go on mountains, cliffs and go into a sea or something there could also be more biomes like a tundra or sea maybe even a flower field because it can change battle tactics and create new ways to play the game making old players come back and more players to come.
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 👍
Billybobbiejoey12345 - Love game but a few suggestions
I love this game my alliance finally thrives as I spend my time trying to stay ahead in power. I have 2.3 million power and our alliance will soon capture our first holy site😎. Not like I haven’t though. This is my second account and my first was made when Rome was a “new” civilization. But I’m disappointed 😔 that a Greek civilization hasn’t been added yet. But I’m sure it is hard to do and I think that the alliance officers could do more. I think there should be a Merchant and they can mess with the alliance store prices. I think it is dumb that a one minute speed up is about 8,000 silver. And I think you should be able to overthrow your leader. And I think barbarians aren’t strong enough. Rome fell to barbarians and they just walk around our land like we’re their friends I think they should be able to attack things like fortresses. I mean if you don’t have a defense in your fort then there is something wrong with you. But other than those minor suggestions I LOVE THE GAME. Thank you for putting all the hard work into the game.
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.
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...
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.
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
Sophia Whittmore - Pretty good
Been playing for a while now and the game hasn’t disappointed, you get to choose you your kingdom turns out and you choose what you develop.
However there are a few little things that bother me, 1 we get so many commanders and the most we can dispatch is 5 marches so you get 10 commanders total, it would be nice if that limit was increased a little.
2 you can have scouts at the start of the game to explore fog caves and other cities but afterwards they become kinda useless, it would be nice to have another role for them where they are more useful.
3 alliance loads are useful if you want to gather on the map without the fear of being attacked and when gathering you have few limits as to how much you can take ( depending on how much you commanders and troops can carry) however it is difficult in higher alliances because people are powerful and can take much more so you end up with a smaller amount, I think this limits people’s potential so I think the limit should be raised by further developing more alliance technology specifically for gathering.
4 upgrading the castle and towers take forever to upgrade because you need special items to upgrade them, books and arrows of resistance however these can be really difficult to get because there a few ways to get them and you don’t get a lot I would like more ways to obtain these through events or increase the amount people can obtain.
Myusernames - Pretty good game
This game has had loads of updates, improvements and new ideas coming to the game just around the corner. I love the simplicity of the game and that it’s not too hard to play. I also like the graphics of the game and that it runs smoothly on just about any device. It’s really fun rallying forts, attacking cities and playing with your friends. I love how the game isn’t boring and that there are elite barbarians in special events that you attack with your alliance. It good to see that there are different civilisations you can choose from too with its special unit. If i could change one thing about the game it would be people that are pay 2 win. People that pay money are going to have a huge advantage as they will be powering up way faster than someone who has paid nothing. Only if the game was less pay to win i would rate it 5 stars.

Bon576 - Terrible developers
I’ve been playing this game for over a year now and I have to say I’m disappointed in how little the developers actually listen to the audience of their game. There are many key features that still need tweaking and changing to improve gameplay and despite multiple people putting these ideas forward they’re still not addressing them. Migration is still WAYYYY to expensive - developers haven’t done a thing Late game kvks require you to spend a lot in order to be relevant in tech - they’re looking into it but have continued it on after the first KvK Equipment loadouts were not thought through at all - shouldn’t of been released as it was Overall the development of kvks and other features are not thought out before releasing. Everyone wants a KvK where you can do bastions and forts to contribute to A COALITION OR CAMP related tech. NOT INDIVIDUAL TECHS! It’s not hard to listen to your audience yet rok developers find it so hard to just take ideas on.
Spoke to customer support and asked about a talent perk function and 3 different people gave me 3 different equations and answers and still can’t tell me straight forward how this talent works. Useless, absolutely useless. They telling me you have to break the functions of the game for a talent to work which renders the talent useless. I can’t believe a multiethnic million dollar company can’t even afford decent support who can tell someone one answer as to how a simple talent works. This game needs help
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
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.
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.
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!!!!
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
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
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 :)
Liam de Greef - I cannot believe my eyes!
I have been an avid gamer for 30 years and this game you would play just for the graphics! These images you see above are actual game play images! I also love the voices of the champions, especially the Arab (?) guy. I can’t understand him, but he sounds amazing. And otherwise the game is just perfect. Retiring has never been so good. 😊
Just one small criticism: there is a background sound that I think resembles a bustling city, which is fine. However, every 20 seconds or so, a guy calls out “Hey hooo” in the background. Every 20 seconds, is 120 times in an hour, which gets VERY annoying. I have now switched off the game sounds to avoid that, but that also turns off all other game sounds, which is a shame.
Otherwise, you’ve got yourselves a winner, my friends!
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.
Mitch1234567890 - Good game
I mean what's there to say, it's a well made game, the gems aren't a thing that you have to spend real money on and there are perks that don't take 200 hours to get. They put thought into the game and how to keep an audience and it worked! There's always something to do, I find myself coming back everyday to claim my VIP points so I can level up and receive more perks. The idea of civilisations and being able to change them every so often is nice. It's just a really well made enjoyable game, I'd say it's better than hayday and clash of clans and all those other games we all grew up with. I also like how you get rewards for doing simple stuff and you can use the gems to get speed ups for building things and in the risky chests as well, really useful.
9/10 because you'll never know if there'll be anything better
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
Glaiebrbci - Please add or fix
Ok so first of all I love this game it’s soo much fun and Grindy perfect game to kill some time on ur break at work or ur day off.
But I’ll get to the point so iv 100% explored the fog without collecting any rewards from villagers and caves thinking I could just knock it all out when I’m done exploring. But iv gone through my mail to collect it only collected some then there was no more to collect in the mail so I zoomed out of the map and I see so many I havnt even collected so now I have to individually collect the rewards witch is very annoying and makes me just not wanna do it coz how many there are so if u could please fix this or maybe add a collect all button for the villagers or caves would be such a time saver or even make the mail stay no matter what till u collect them. Thank you :)
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!
Sikanderyar - Plz read this !
This is by far the best game I have ever played ! This game I just amazing with no flaws I just want to encourage you guys and pleas keep this game going I hope this game never stops I will definitely help you amazing developers out I will surly invest money in this game As I said this game has no flaws literally ! If there’s one thing I want it would be to add the Mongol civilisation If you could do that I will be more than thankful Keep going ! 👍👍 COME AND CONQUER 😎 Just an edit I can give you ideas for mongol civilisation Firstly architecture could be like nomad tents or modern Mongolian architecture For troops you could have Mongolian troops which would be cavalry And starting commander could be ether Noyan, Togay , or Genghis Khans son or sons Thanks hope you read this 😃
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.
Imthemoesta - Zero customer service
First problem is it’s pay to win only, if you don’t part with hundreds of dollars you get smashed! Second problem is the customer service, I’ve had issues with the champions of Olympia event, as usual the developers have changed the format like they do with everything on a regular basis and now it’s impossible for me to play. Champions of Olympia is the only event worth playing and your able to win gold statues for upgrading your commanders with are very very hard to get unless you pay through the nose for them. When I try to play I get the message “repeat AFK behaviour” and it won’t allow me to play it’s done this for 3 straight weeks, I have contacted customer service and it takes days to get a reply and when I do get a reply it’s they tell me absolutely nothing. Very disappointed!
I spent 3 weeks talking to customer service and got nowhere. I won’t be wasting anymore time talking to customer service
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.
Mobile ads are cringe. - Absolute garbage.
Rise of Kingdoms is one of those ‘strategy’ games. It’s sort of realistic yet expensive as hell. In order to switch civilisations you have to pay 10,000 freaking gems! This means they force you to be stuck with your civilisation forever until you get enough gems. And strategy is not required either. In spite of the ads, the only way to beat rise of kingdoms is with brute force. You cannot beat anything without high level troops and thousands of them. Lilith games can be much better than this. And to add all of this together, you have to connect an account to get higher than level 10?! I don’t even own one! This is simply OUTRAGEOUS! This is why I am writing this review. Don’t listen to these ads. In conclusion, Rise of Kingdoms is way too expensive and greedy with their in-game currencies, and the advertisements are lies. One last thing to add is this game is pay-2-win. It’s not even owned by EA.
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.
F2P 2021 - Money hungry game
I’ve been playing this game for a year and all I’ve seen is how this game just looks for ways to make money. Every single update is getting worse where I barely get as much gold heads as I use too. You make it extremely hard for low spenders and people that just want to play for fun with their friends to get anywhere on this game. When you hold discussions on how to make this game better do you just look at the option that racks in more money. I’ve been on your discord where you basically ignore the cry out for change from your own gaming community. I recommend no one download and waste their time on this game because in the future it’s just going to be a stepping stone and fade into dead game. That one star goes out to all the hard working F2P players and people that are wasting their money on this game who are being neglected. Have nice day you greedy ****s
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.
Caught_out - Great game, community building
I have played this game for a while, one of the best features has to be the community and atmosphere, you can create and build a community of comrades and friends from all around the world, to play and enjoy the game with. The rotating events schedule is also a great feature as you have constantly changing but familiar events occurring ( adding a few new ones every now and then as well). I love the historical component Calvary, archers infantry and historical commanders to discover and develop, newer strategy games tend to be about equipment and tech but here strategy and diplomacy are the key requirements.
Tas07 - Worst game ever
First the ads. They are cringy, misleading and annoying is there really a restaurant for rise of kingdom players, and do nearly everyone in the world play rise of kingdoms and do people really bully people for being low power and and do people really get like 5 million power in like 3 days? Again ads with the Viking ads they say people are farming and I am attacking city’s well you have to have a certain level to attack city’s and to get levels you need to upgrade and if you want to upgrade you need coins and if you want coins you need recourses yeah misleading. Plus they put fake promo codes in ads to. The gameplay is bad to and it has a limited amount of civilisations unlike what the ads say. Anyway read before you get the game oh and when you make a review it comes up with a template saying best game ever
Card lvls - Superb and enjoyable
At first i thought this game wasn't even that good before i downloaded it, then i decided i will try it out and see how it is. I am glad i did it is definitely 1 of the best games i have played on mobile.
The tutorial is excellent it teaches you how to play in a way that allows you to know just about all there is to know about the game, it isnt a very difficult game and you dint have to pay money for stuff like VIP which in other games you normally do, the system is simple yet brilliant.
Overall i am really enjoying this game and would highly recommend this game.
Bobingon gleech - A really great game but...
The game is one of the best build your own civilisation games on the App Store, the battles are fun and the exploring is exciting, the game is extremely good for a free game on the AppStore, but there are 2 problems, one doesn’t really matter but the other can cause lots of balance by issues, the first not so severe issue is the graphics during the battles, it’s really hard for someone to get immersed because of the low quality of the troops, I know this is a free game but have high quality troops will make the game a whole lot better, now for the main problem, the game is a P2W, buying things could cause a massive difference in powers, overall the game is really good, it’s just got a few adjustable issue.
Xhgggbg - Good game but some problems
The game (rise of kingdoms) is a really interesting and fun game to play but there are some problems I am having to play it when I get in the game and load in and all that give or take 5 minutes it crashes I am playing on iPhone 6 it can be a bit annoying which is a shame because I really enjoy the game I am a bit confused so if anyone could give me some suggestions or help in any way I would appreciate it mainly the developers again I really like the game and I would like to get a proper experience from it thank you and goodbye
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.
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.
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!
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.
Cul8ralligator - Best ever for history!
This game is the best for historical players who enjoy grinding and history because this game is just that! I do have a few suggestions: 1. Can u remove add leader in two days it’s just annoying for sharing leadership 2. Can you add instant train and collect food and logs ect because then you could have your troops train for a set trainings so you don’t have to log on just to train your troops. 3. What about a phase we’re Australia is found soon? That’s all love the game totally recommend!,
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!
Obscure name 65^_^ - Very brief review of rok.
Rise of Kingdoms, for me, has been a very enjoyable experience for me. The game is addictive and has a variety of things to do. The game is never laggy, never crashes and always performs smoothly.
The game is strategical and you choose from many kingdoms, each giving its own unique buffs and quirks, as well as commander/s. You gather resources, upgrade buildings and fight battles as you advance your kingdom. So far, I have found no flaws in the game, and is overall addictive and worth playing.
Prronn - Greed driven decision
2020 has been a rough year globally and many people have turned to games for comfort during these times.
For many of us, Rise of kingdoms was that game and it was a great game, although it was definitely pay to win, there were ways to keep up if you played it smart.
As of recent, there is no longer any chance of competing against players that are spending in this game.
1. They nerfed help amounts you can get for healing and gave more ways for spenders to buy healing speed ups, allowing them to be back on the field quicker.
2. They released a completely pay to win, month long event called heroic anthem as a response to complaints of lack of content.
3. They both changed and nerfed the drop rates for speed ups and gems during PVE content that allowed low spenders / free to play players to keep up with paying players.
They have completely gutted any and all ways for those of us who aren’t willing to spend thousands of $$$ on a mobile game and have the audacity to act like they’re doing it to help their own community.
They aren’t. They are doing it for greed.
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.
GroundCabbage12 - This is a mint game
Hello I started playing this about 2 weeks ago I’m 500k power I really enjoy the alliance’s and chat and overall the game is amazing but I only have one problem it says a strategy game but I don’t know If I can but Idk how to change positioning in my troops for better attack they just go in a group I can’t make them in a triangle or have them in lines I just don’t know and it gets annoying but other then that it’s a amazing game please reply for feedback thank you
Tbh i like roblox - R.O.K is good
R.O.K is an amazing game sometimes things might be tuff but when you keep grinding resources and upgrade your structures the game becomes super fun my favourite thing is the fighting watching wall and villages crumble and burn just has something satisfieing to it and the different commanders are amazing with around 30 of them. Anyway choosing a good civilization is key because they all have different buff from gathering speed to millatary strength. If you like civilisations games i recomend this for you. Bye have a nice day/night
Henry gibbleshnag - I LOVE THIS GAME SOOOO MUCH
This game makes me super emotional and sad but it still gives off good vibes and I love it!!!!. If I could it would be 100 / 5 if i had to. There is nothing wrong with it, it makes me soooo happy that a group of people made such an amazing game like this and now its by far my favourite game I have. This experience I’ve had playing this is amazing and i love to play with my friends. So if your not sure if you want download this then you should definitely get this game. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ 😍 😍 😍 😍 😍
Zobot165 - It’s good but I have a complaint.
To be honest I haven’t even started playing other than choosing my kingdom, but every time I try to load in I get this message telling me that I “have an unstable network connection.” And to “please click confirm to restart the loading proses.” But it just does it again. It’s really annoying and I cannot play the game but other than that it’s really good so far. The animation is really good and I love the voice actors, plus the game looks really well developed! Well that is all I have to say right now. Have a nice day/Easter.

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.
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
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.
Kgt57 - Fake ads are only the beginning
You might have seen the ads on YouTube. They have little to do with the game. Much of the gameplay they describe is not part of the game.
There are no ships. You don’t control your troops in the way the ads show. The graphics are nothing like the ads. Most events are gambling based and the results are based on luck over skill. Most combat is won by those who spend the most money not those with the most skill.
Vikings? Longbowmen? They are not very important to your game at all. The civilizations like Britain or France have slightly different troop characteristics and slightly different graphics, not much else distinguishes them.
What matters in this game is the money you spend. To compete well you’ll need to spend around US$200 a month minimum. And you’ll have to play a lot.
Everything in the game is on some sort of timer. You’ll need to log in throughout the day and spend 15 - 30 minutes at a time getting things done to meet these timers. That isn’t playing time, that is chore time. The game demands you do regular repeated chores multiple times throughout the day or you’ll lose out.
Spending money will help with that but not completely useless you’re one those who spend closer to $1000 or more a month.
Lmy1116 - 根本停不下来！
Justputanynamehere: - Terrible
They make the ads way better then the actual game,false advertising.The quality is terrible and way more pixelated then the ads.
EthanRei - Pay 2 Win past a certain point
There is no reliable nor rewarding way to earn books which are required to upgrade your academy and castle.
This means you eventually reach a bottleneck where you can’t upgrade the Academy/Castle without paying and you cannot upgrade most of your buildings to lvl 25.
I had been paying a bit here and there while playing this game and I’ve managed to reach 24 Million power but realizing I literally cannot progress because of the tens of thousands of books I’m missing, I quit the game.
What a scam, seriously, several months of dedication to this game and this is what I get, a wall of $$$$$$ that I won’t climb.
Sad Bunny 23 - No money no play...
It was fun at first, but now nothing help us poor people.
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...
Not a real name. Tiny - Do not play this game!
This a a pay to play game. It is set up extremely well to lull you into a sense of “I just need a little better....If I buy this one little pack for 7 dollars it will help me.” At the end of the month you look at your Credit Card bill and you have spent $1,000, or with some players, way more. I played for 3 months, spent moderately and played a lot. At the end I have a great deal of buyers remorse. The gameplay is very unbalanced. It takes a very long time to train troops and if you do get into a huge battle your troops are gone very quickly and you have to buy “speed ups” to train more. I cannot stress to anyone reading this enough Do Not Install This Game!!!! I have never played a more unbalanced game in my life.
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.
Yayyeetiscool - Terrible game
The ads are annoying, a farmer loses his wife and in 4sec he turns in a GOD, and how many ads have you seen on YouTube today let me count for me about 10 PER DAY this is insane just stop
Hilma232346 - Very expensive game
Been playing it for almost 2 years . The in-game reward system was great but now they reduced grants to making them irrelevant. The purchasable packs are the most expensive i EVER saw for what you actually get. Real war action can only happen every few MONTHS , and since Korean players vastly dominate this game communication including chat systems are terrible. Do not play this game unless prepared drop huge $ amounts for little fun
Jfowpow - Greedy devs
This game while fun, is enough to get you hooked at the start but the mid to end game progression just gets bogged down to the point you need a monthly dump truck of money to stay relevant.
All of the patches released lately squeeze out what’s needed for progression bit by bit. The devs don’t care about the state of the game, just how much money they can make. Last series of patches speak to this. They release one with nerfs then come back saying oh sorry sorry, we didn’t mean to do that. Here are some table scraps.
JulianA013 - The greed of developers is high
Dont need to download this game unless you can drop thousands of dollars in a month and then too just to disappointed with stupid update and they wont even spend your money to fix lags or any other bugs in game
Monrich 819 - Killing F2P
Lilith is killing f2p woth the newest patch making speed ups less accessible and promoting gear
Februaryxy - M1 MacBook support
Add the game back to Mac AppStore like other developers or this one star rating will keep coming your way.
AresComplex - Why is there a rape trailer?
I was browsing YouTube and an ad came up for rise of kingdoms where a woman is raped, chooses to commit suicide, then celebrates randomly becoming rich?
What the actual f**k is wrong with you people?
Who is the piece of garbage that thought “oh I have a fun idea! Let’s use rape and suicide to sell our fun little micro transactions!” “ we’ll make it ok because she becomes rich after her suicide attempt fails. Because money and power takes away that pain.
Lol gg.” You are less than human.
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.
Fix your bug infested update
Qwcthb - Mise à jour
Depuis la mise à jour incapable de charger le jeu👎👎👎👎
DespairHope - Loading in bug
fix the bug that you are about to enter to play the game
Gobongbab - Won’t open after update
Loading stops at 6% and kicks me out. It’s been like over 12hrs of waiting. Please fix it!
Laladidaaaaa - 1 star
Rating Rok with 1 star. All the lag and sh**t updates you guys do makes the game even more unplayable. Kindly, really fix the issue...
The Chat update still horrible. Actually even worse...
Gtygvghvfgvbnb - Login Issues
After the newest update on May 7th 2020 every time I go to open the app it’s closes itself and I have spent money so a fix would be nice
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.
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.
Dman187-420 - Great game
Like it so far reminds me of a lord of the rings game I played
Scuddie Jack! - 5 stars
This is an amazing game with some grate story line and typically play it everyday in my opinion 5 STARS the only bad things about this game is in the adds there is game play that dosing exist and the game is really addicting so you have to supervise your self but every thing els is awesome it is so so so much fun and it’s so really
Good I cane tell the developers worked so hard I fell in love with this game the first 30 seconds I had it 😍 if you are planing on getting this game DO IT🤪 and it’s so cool there’s so muchQuality
In this game and it’s COMPLETELY FREE and over all that it’s just SO MUCH FUNNN🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩 in my opinion I don’t regret getting this game ONE little bit🥳
Motafota - Pay to Win
Every update keeps getting worse and worse. They don’t listen to their player base at all and will do everything to make this game not worth playing for free to play players that they can. Take it from me as someone who has not put a dollar into this game and save yourself the regret later BY NOT SPENDING ANY MONEY or even downloading and giving this game a chance. I’m 300 days in and every update they remove the aspects that made it somewhat playable for free to play players. It can (and has) only gotten worse from here.

Stop with the ads I can’t take it anymore I want to literally punch all the people that promote this game!!!! I don’t even need to play it and I didn’t I just downloaded and deleted immediately to those saying it’s a pay to win game yeah no s&$@ look where Lilithgameco is from.
Alaingomez - No recommandation
Fovio - Rise of Wallets
Great game, way to expensive if you want to compete.
Iain Murray - Crashing
App keeps crashing at 6%.
Sleepy-sheep - Not a fair game, resource unbalance
If you want to collect resource: food, wood.
For example, if you send 10000 people to collect 380000 resource.
Then your people get attack by others while collecting.
When you log in back, you collect nothing AND you have to spend at least 3 times of resource to cure your people. You progress is soon down to the bottom.
Then the game is asking you to pay and buy their package. This looks like their strategy to sell the game
Cure your people shouldn’t cost so much!!!
really unfair and unbalanced
AnthonyYPC - Bad experience
Negative game experience caused by Alliance AR&G in Kingdom #1325
M-A Quessy - Pay to lose, sponsored teams
I’ve been at this game for over a month now. It’s fun until you realise that it’s rigged.
Yeah yeah everyone know it’s a pay to win game and I spent a bit and had some fun. But when I started to look at hoe the teams (aliances) are structured you quickly find out that the game is rigged.
If your alliance hit the 50 000 000 power mark, you’re in for a surprise! On the server I was on they call themselves League of this or League of that witch consists of sponsored players either by ROC or a third party.
It’s like clockwork, they let the smaller guys fatten up to this level only to gang up and burn you to the ground. 1st time ok that’s life, second time is not fun but hey, stuff happens! Third time, you start to ask yourself what did you do wrong? If you have half a brain you look at the behavior on a large scale and find out it’s happening all over the server.
When you see players that are soooo high in power you figure out either they sunk 10k$ 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.

@TheDon28468885 @WorldsXbox @Under_Ach1ever That was true years ago but. I play mobile games that are hardcore.
Like, Rise of kingdoms. We had clans of 500+ players in that doing server vs servers battel. This was more organize then any mmo I ever play on PC.
As you know, I rarely Tweet but tonight I need to brag. I play Rise of Kingdoms. I just unlocked T5 Royal Guards. It took me two years of daily hard work. I never bought a resource pack. I mined or earned every gem used to buy speedups. Can you relate? #riseofkingdoms
