Don’t invest your time.. or money!!
By Andurrr Hellurrr
In the beginning, it might seem like fun and a simple exchange of a $100 here and there to stay in league with other players, but it’s obvious that some players have either hacked into the game or used some third party payment service to disrupt the balance because later on in the game all the money you have spent as a player will be for naught.
Like seriously, on my current server on average everyone now has a castle level 40 and around 1800k-1900k power, most heroes reaching level 40 and a few heroes making it to level 45. I mean this is where my friends and I are at and we have been playing for almost a year and a half. I am now currently VIP11 (which means I’ve spent more than $1000) and I have spent hours and spent plenty of money and I would want to spend more time playing even more money if I felt like it would be worth it, but now I no longer feel like this game is worth it except to express my disdain. There are players in my server who have all their heroes maxed out at level 50. This is unreal, because no matter how much you spend, there is no way they should have been able to make ALL of their heroes level 50. Also, the whole dragon thing is fairly new, and my own dragon is on the stronger side at level 35 but these people from China have their dragon up to level 50 as well!! THERE IS NO WAY THAT IS POSSIBLE!! These players also have the alternative skins for their heroes. The event for those skins are costly (to win them by default is almost $800 each event) and they have all of the alternative skins available. But here is the kicker! Rumor has it that the prices for bundles outside of the US, and Europe are at a fraction of the price!! So players in China already have the upper hand no matter what, I guess. But alas I digress. Everyone check out the discussion on what I’m talking about on their Facebook page. You’ll see there are many players who also have the same issue I am having. It’s honestly just a shame. Used to love this game, and I have made so many friends from around the world playing this game but now I feel like there’s no point. Moving on.. good luck to everyone else!

A warning for new players
This game empowers rich bullies and nationalistic racists. Multiple server player here. Playing a long time. Had a really solid group, in a fairly balanced realm, growing together the proper way, even including the pay to win whales on the server. Then the realm transfer feature went active. We had all of the whales, who could not beat the the bigger whales, from the server above ours, transfer in. They were levels above our strongest whales. They quickly took over every kingdom, and set about destroying every house filled with “foreign dogs.” They also decided to destroy and pick on any of their own countrymen that played well with the “foreigners” mercilessly, even destroying walls and troops when they were trying to recover in the capital. The game became no longer fun for many. Many quit, including the two purple framed and one gold framed players that were our kings. A group of fifty of us, the remnants of three houses from three kingdoms decided to leave for the server one beneath ours. We felt we had settled in and the game became fun again. 30 days later, (the “new limit” on transfer) 15 of the of the people who destroyed our first realm, transferred into our new realm. They have already begun to wreak havoc, and have taken over two kingdoms already, and are again upsetting the balance. To make matters worse two of the most bullied players in our group were immediately sought out for attack, again. Many of us changed our names and pictures to protect these two players, and spread rumors that they had already quit playing. This is not something anyone should ever have to do, to play a game. We are now being faced with the decision to stay and be abused by people who have more money than us AGAIN! Or save up enough in game currency to again transfer to another realm so that we can play for another 30 days without fear of having any progress erased. Plus now they are bullying and causing to quit a whole new subset of players from the new realm that took in our 50+ refugees. Contact with the games support team has yielded zero help or results. Just spin about how they were working to fix the problem, and individual ID’s should be reported, but ID’s that have been reported are still there the next day and they just destroyed 15 guard towers while you were sleeping. Bottom line. Unless you are looking to spend close to $2000 on something digital and intangible that you do not own, and could be taken away at any moment by someone willing to spend $3000, then do not play this game. Do not spend money on this game. In fact go find another game where your talent as a player is appreciated, not the contents of your wallet. Until the developers of this game separate the Chinese from the global community, and do something to balance out the transfers and merges of stronger players and realms not suited for their intervention all you will end up being is disappointed, broke, or both. If you do not like having your lineage disparaged from a nationalistic and racist perspective do not play this game. If you don’t like it when the big kid kicks your sand castle at the beach do not play this game. This message will probably be followed by a response, containing more spin, from a China based company that has created a game where rich China based players can abuse everyone else from all over the world. Do not give them a dime.
Latest update doesn’t allow the game to open. Just kicks you to the update app page that says it’s already up to date.
If what you’re after is a dollar store version an I admitted bastard stepchild of wow and command and conquer... look no further. ... if you’re anything but Chinese, this game is not for you... just run away, don’t waste your time or money.
Chinese game with cheaters
Do not play this game if you are not Chinese!
Chinese players use stolen credit cards to buy in game money. And they also use third-party resellers to get really cheap in game money. Lilith published a spreadsheet of some of these cheaters but did not ban them. You will never be able to compete with these people, the servers are full of Chinese people with maxed accounts. There are thousands of these cheaters.
Someone in China even approached me and asked if I wanted to buy resources from him through a Chinese dating app or WeChat.
The technical support in this game is the worst I’ve ever seen. It is horrible. They do not help you, even if they reset you to “new player“ and you lose your game. You are done. Any money that you have spent is lost.
You also need a good system to run this game. They have thrown so much junk into it that it doesn’t even run on iPad 4. And even if you have an iPad Pro, you can’t battle because of server lag. The servers are in China, good luck getting a connection anywhere else. Battles end with an “unstable network” error and you lose without even being able to play. Then you have a four hour penalty where you can’t play.
Racism abounds in this game. My friends in the United States that are Chinese are mortified that we are called “dogs” in this game, even “black dogs” if you’re African-American. The bullying and taunting is rampant.
Horrible. Skip right past this one and choose a better game. You’ll be happier for it. Trust me on that one!
Pay to Win to the extreme
Game is great. Great concept. Great game play. I never mind paying for games.
However, this game has taken it to the next level of trickery and cheating.
They set up developers in each server; have them become way more powerful than the avg player and even the pay to play char. Last I checked on a new server they opened, the top player would've had to pay over $10,000 in the first month. (My friends say it's too conservative of an estimate but that's why I said minimum.)
They've realized that by doing this it will pressure other players to spend more to catch up.
When players realize that they will never be able to catch up, they move onto the next server that is open by the developers only to see this cycle repeat again.
I don't write this in any hopes of the devs changing their schemes. I write this to warn new players. They'll start with the $5/month program to get a little boost that is almost necessary to make the game even playable. Now you're invested. #gotyou
Ban hackers & fix excessive Pay to Play
This game is so awesome, I absolutely love it. The issue is - the game is overwhelmed with hackers and a pay to win economy. It’s a real shame. The language barrier between players makes things very frustrating also.

I enjoy this game! I do wish that there was a way to get Jacques in the hero chests, or be allowed to purchase another hero at 9.99 instead of just one. Maybe only allow it twice, but I know it’s to keep other commanders from being too strong. Other than that, it is a great game to interact with others from all over the globe!
Says game is updated but will not let me update. So I can’t play. Tried app support couldn’t find anything
