Resources resources resources
I’ve been playing the game on and off for about 5 years. Since I haven’t spent much money, I’m only on level 17 out of 19. The game is fun, but requires serious dedication to collecting resources. Unfortunately, most things you need come in chests, so you can’t target any particular item. You just get chests, then a chance to get what you want. The best items always have a low percentage of getting it (7-10%), so you need multiple chests to have any hope of success. You can pay real money for more chests, but still have no guarantee of getting what you want. (Chests cost about $5 each)The biggest problem in the game is the crazy number of different resource items. Every time you try to upgrade a building or troop, you need several different resource items. It gets very frustrating trying to collect all these different things, and because you get things at random, you often end up with lots of stuff you don’t want and can’t get the stuff you do want. Here’s a list of just some of the resource items that you need to collect to build and upgrade things:Gold, rings, diamonds, stones, mithril, mithril shards, astralite, runes, crystals, 6 different kinds of primus, 5 different kinds of gryphon primus, 20 or more different tokens, 5 different extracts, 5 different essences, many different special ingredients, astral stones and gear, boosts, etc...Since all of this stuff comes at random, it’s very hard to progress in any particular direction. Even when you do finally get all the items to make an upgrade, you still need more and different items to apply the upgrade! Then it can turn out that you can’t apply it because one of your buildings isn’t upgraded, which cost even more, and upgrades can take 2-3 weeks to finish. All this stuff is put in your way so you will feel compelled to buy your way through it all. So if you enjoy gathering resources and don’t mind spending money, then this game is for you!
I have been playing this game on and off for years. Now for the past 2 weeks every time I battle I am fighting the same 2 kingdoms... this is so annoying and I can’t find how to contact support for this glitch.
Good game. Too long to upgrade
Great game, no rebuild time BUT you have to spend $$ to get ahead
Great game - If you are wealthy or very disciplined
Very good game where you build defenses on your stronghold and use various ancients that can be upgraded to raid other strongholds. Join a kingdom of up to 50 players and compete against other Kingdoms. Provides a lot of interaction with members of your kingdom. The problem is in order to be a top player you can pay thousands (yes thousands) of dollars. They are currently having a 3 day sale. In order to buy the biggest bundle of diamonds, Mithral and rings it costs $100. They have a limit of 5 per player...yes, they limit it to 5 per player because there are people who would drop a couple grand and overly tip the playing field. One kingdom is top in virtually every event. If you are very disciplined you don’t have to spend any money. You will never compete with the top kingdoms or players but you can still have fun. Join a kingdom and give it a try. Just beware of the money pit.Unfortunately I can’t resist trying to buy upgrades even though after working at it 3 years I will never catch the top players. It is always a struggle to keep my spending modest.
