Pure pay to play1000 help limit for healing troops totally just took this to the next level of busted and not fair game mechanics. Overall quality is poor too with kingdom vs kingdom events causing lag and your troops to disappear from the screen during major battles. Good luck to anyone not willing to spend thousands. They’re not willing to ban spenders using bots..Version: 1.0.34.16

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..Version: 1.0.33.17

Give to the rich take from the poorWhen first getting this game I was excited and optimistic. Right up my street. Don’t get me wrong, it is good. I’ve built a few accounts and made numerous friends. Enjoyed a plenty encounter etc. The HUGE downfall in my opinion is the epic gulf in pay to play and free to play. Unless you have hours a day and are somewhere near like a guru you cannot compete with the Whales!! For example. I felt I was experienced enough to start a second account, when my first started getting into the stages where it’s was taking days for upgrades. So I went through the intro etc. Went to join an alliance, only to find there were players already in the multi million power category. The kingdom had been open less than 8hours!! This happens in every kingdom. How can you compete!!?? I’m not condoning it as it’s each to their own. However I wonder why not just make a free to play server so to speak... just to even the playing field a bit...? I cannot see this happening in the near future as ‘money talks’..Version: 1.0.38.07

Garbage gameSpend thousands of dollars on this game and have a bad experience on it!.Version: 1.0.34.14

Fun but cheaters prosperSo 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..Version: 1.0.31.18

Just read below...As pretty much any gamer knows, free MMO games are rarely truly free. Servers and new content cost money to create, and developers aren’t running a charity service. Therefore, they need to monetize their games to pay for those things and to pay for their time. Unfortunately, most games give insurmountable advantages to big money spenders that free players simply cannot achieve. This is pretty frustrating, even gamers willing to spend money, because it means everyone has to pay just to keep up. The ideal system encourages players to spend by providing options to supplement a fun activity, rather than putting that fun activity behind a paywall (commonly referred to as a pay to win or p2w game). This is 100% p2w and there’s a massive wall for free players they will never enjoy the benefits I spent little on this game before I saw the maxed out players who troll you over and over and attack you until you quit there server and have to start the game over losing any real money you spent on the server before and when you join and start a new game you see max players around you i have had enough of it RIP deleted seemed good but so unbalanced they say the release new servers when alot of people join its bull crap ..Version: 1.0.1403

Terrible customer serviceI switched devices and made a purchase twice of the same thing by accident and the rewards didn’t come through. I contacted customer service and I still did not get the contents. Very poor customer service.Version: 1.0.29.17

Rises then fallsPlayed this game a fair bit now, starts of well and good at start of season everything was fine at first, the exploration was actually interesting for a while, raising an army, levelling a champion and gathering resources wasn’t a chore, killing the npc’s was fun and the social part was sensible and normal.. THEN.. the pay walls and the big spending bullies start boxing you in and everything that seemed fair and simple at first becomes a nightmare as times to train and build become days, gains and experience for your champions almost hit a stand still, resource requirement skyrockets meaning your week long build takes longer as it takes days to gather material and even killing the npcs with tv out one of the big spending bullies come and wipes you and your target. Caters greatly to those willing to fork over an unbelievable amount of money as even the mindset of “oh I’ll just spend a little on the pack it’ll help” stop as it won’t help and will barely make a dent in what you want it for. It’s annoying cause I like this game and am in a very good alliance with nice people but it’s plagued with mega spenders that farm and bully..Version: 1.0.29.17

Avoid this trashBeen playing for a year. And I have watch it get worse and worse. The developers are useless and screwing over its players. They help top dogs cheat yet leave its free to play players to rot. They make a mistake which will cost them a bit of money but when it comes to a mistake they make that gives rewards for hard work they either don’t give it or compensate with nothing of value. The developers are trash and only interested in scamming money out of every player they can. I would avoid this game at all costs..Version: 1.0.2513

RokBeen playing this game a long time , during war and the way the help system worked you could heal around 2k troops fast at time and keep doing that til your hospital was clear , now they decide to remove this game mechanic and they only allow you to heal by spending money Shame on you Lilith , you already earn millions of dollars every month.Version: 1.0.34.16

Be careful of this game and other reviewsWith every update the game lags and crashes more often. Now it’s at the point of unplayable for me. After feedbacks, no effort was made to address the problem or playtest but CS assumes it’s my problem when a lot of other players are complaining. Total waste of my time and money. Word of caution to others considering this sham of a game..Version: 1.0.2212

Excellent customer abuse systemThis 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!.Version: 1.0.1824

P2W or be DestroyedLet 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..Version: 1.0.1128

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..Version: 1.0.905

Greed may be their downfallTruth be told, I love this game and have been playing for over 2 years, even spending £150 a month to keep myself somewhat competitive. But it’s getting to the point where that just won’t cut it. Events that benefitted players who put in some grind are slowly disappearing and being replaced by new ones which require spending to really even be able to get much from them. It used to be that a low spender could make up the difference between that and someone spending more by putting in the hours but every basic reward feature from barbarians to marauders have now been nerfed to provide lesser rewards. For a game with a revenue stream such as RoK, the developers are pricing out there own players and frankly I’ve never known so many players to have quit as they have recently in my time playing this. Its a worrying time for the Rise of kingdoms community, I can only hope Lilith realise their constantly moving goalposts and continuous ramming of new bundles down our throats is in fact, beginning to kill the game off. Perhaps that’s their idea, their profit margin is incredible yet they’ve never devoted the time or resources to it that this community deserves..Version: 1.0.41.12

Good but can some settings cheat youThe game is great I have 2 accounts in different kingdoms however some of the settings where the game thinks it’s saving you can actually waste 6 days of waiting. I created an account to jump to a new server using my beginners teleport. I was in a temporary alliance and was going to teleport over to the territory using my territory teleport. I put my castle in an open space and clicked teleport in the territory one. However after I pressed teleport the game automatically changed it to my beginners one so that was used instead. I get the idea of the game trying to save you from using more valuable TP but because beginners TP is only available at start it’s a lot more valuable and I got cheated of it. If the game could swap my territory TP for a beginners one that would be great. I spent 6 days waiting and then the game used it without me wanting it to. Not very fair, otherwise it would be full stars for me..Version: 1.0.31.14

The game is fun butI am giving it 3 starts because even though people say this game is purely P2P, which is true but I play F2P and this game is good enough for me and I do alright. Im giving it 3 stars because of some major flaws in this game, One being the alliance search option when you search for an alliance even if you type everything perfectly it still shows that no alliance can be found. So you cant find or apply to join the alliances of your friends or the second wing of your main alliance. Its as if the search option is just novelty only to show that its there, but when you use it it’s absolutely worthless. Please make it work so that when someone types lets say [ABCD], all the alliances with that name show up and not an empty page saying nothing can be found. Second being the report system, selling resources for real money or using bots is against the rules but when we report players for botting and selling resources for real money we have no option to do so we have to find the option that says we could not find what we’re looking for. Even then your report wont be responded to even if you give screenshots of proof. So basically you have players cheating in this game and when players try to report there’s no system to do so and even if we somehow manage to do it, players reported for cheating will never be caught or took action against. Both these things affect this game’s credibility a lot. I urge game developers to work on this..Version: 1.0.29.17

Will not lose hopeI feel like this game has gotten few negative reviews, and I hate to be the one who writes one of them. I’ve been with this game since it was Rise of Empires. I love everything about this game from the graphics and the in depth gameplay. My complaint is I feel like the bigger alliances are starting to dictate things that happen on the servers. What I mean by that is that on my server #1037 Kingdom of Cassano the bigger alliance 1’s sent out a server wide mail that during Kill Events you can only attack troops that are out in the field and not other governor cities. They said something about happens and it’s reported there would be consequences. So now the server is just basically a big farm I feel like no active wars for territory or governors harassing each other over resources. I have other accounts on 2 different servers but this account I’ve been using NaughtiestMaxum is hall level 21. I also put some money into the game to progress after hitting a few points where I wasn’t progressing. This probably won’t be read but I’m not giving up hope I just don’t want to have to find a new server because I won’t be refunded for what I bought. I’ll stick through it and see what happens..Version: 1.0.1722

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..Version: 1.0.38.10

Really good game but bullies ruin itI’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..Version: 1.0.35.17

BOTSKingdoms 1675 and 1656 using cheat and not get ban. Thousands of bots there..Version: 1.0.35.17

Deleted again after just 2 days.So this is another completely unfair strategy game. I'm just so glad I was waiting to spend money on see what it was like. Like reviews say, it's 110% geared towards the people that spend the most on the game and those that have been on it longer. If your a free or moderately spender you will be farmed by people that are much stronger than you. I've been farmed by people with more than 500k power than me over and over again, literally several times over night by the same people just so they can reduce my armies size. That's the other point, it's easy to lose troops when these people attack you. I lost over 10 thousand troops over one night while I was sleeping, 10 thousand troops is hours upon hours of training. All that time wasted. I know unless I spend a stupid amount of money on the game this is going to keep happening over and over again. I'd rather quit now before i get too far into it..Version: 1.0.1403

Constantly crashing...I love this game, I really do. I have a level 25 city hall and I have around 19 million in power without spending a penny. Yes, like any game spending real money will speed up your progress etc but all of these reviews claiming that you will only be successful if you put your hand in your pocket just simply are not true. There are constant new challenges keeping you interested, plentiful rewards and many different aspects to the game. A few reasons why I like it so much. As far as “free” games go this is right up there.. BUT.. I currently play on an iPad mini 3 and this game CONSTANTLY crashes. I have more than enough free space etc but I’m lucky if I get more than 5 minutes of uninterrupted play. This is particularly annoying if I’m in the middle of a battle as by the time the game reloads I have been defeated, costing me massively in resources as well as the time and effort to recover. I feel I can’t properly engage in the game as I am constantly worried it will crash. Please please please resolve this.. at times it becomes unplayable and I desperately just want to play this game as it should be played. Again, I’ve not spent a penny to get where I am in the game so perhaps it’s a case of “it’s a free game why are you complaining” but with the shoe on the other foot why in my right mind would I spend a penny on a game that crashes more often than not? Please fix!.Version: 1.0.2215

Very expensive gameBeen 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.Version: 1.0.43.13

Major IssueI really loved this game when I started playing. I have been in different alliances and leader of one. However I am becoming more and more disillusioned with each passing day. The game has become a game where smaller alliances and governors are bullied and forced out of the game. They are given dictates like join us and do our bidding or we will keep destroying you. The premise of the game is built round kingdoms which are governed by a select few who have a stranglehold on the game and what everybody else does, this only works if all members of the Kingdom are treated fairly not just the select few. If you want to play a game that develops your skills that you have control over what you are doing and to be treated fairly then this is not the game for you. Although a war game, the concepts of honour, fairness and skills get lost and individuals are forced into being pawns for the few. So if you do not wish this then it is not the game for you. The Developers really do need to address this so that players are not forced and bullied to be pawns in somebody else’s game or to have to be destroyed continuously. Players pay their own money and give their time to play a game they enjoy where they are treated fairly otherwise they will continue to leave or just stop playing. It is a bullying culture that is developing and this is not good in any game. Initially I would have give this game 5 stars but now given my experience this has dropped to 1 star..Version: 1.0.31.19

Free to play(s) stand no chanceI like games like where you use strategy and teamwork in order to succeed. I made such good friends and used to play for hours but now... I uninstalled the game and I don’t think I will play again until this is fixed. Unless you have a fat sum of money laying in your bank and you regularly donate, the chances of your alliance surviving are really small. Me and my friends who just wanted to enjoy the game and put a lot of effort in creating something... got our cities burned down,every time by a bunch of guys who pay money in order to win. This not only happened once but multiple times in different servers. You just stand no chance in front of those who pay money and have a huge advantage over you. It’s a great game but until the developers do something to separate the f2ps from p2ps and make the game fair for everyone, I don’t think it’s worth the time. An advice for the developers that in my opinion will hugely change the game towards the better is to make separate servers for those that just want to enjoy the game for free and separate servers for those that want to spend money in order to compete and win.A great game but frustrating when you lose everything just because you have a huge disadvantage from others. Thank you for your time and hope this will make a change for the better..Version: 1.0.32.25

Excellent game but too much bullying from the KoreansReally enjoy playing this game. I’m a player in kingdom #1515 with few of my friends and family members. Problem is we often bullied by the Korean players Alliance RKEA. They wiped our old alliance area and now they started hunting us in the new territory. Spoke to other players and checked Facebook RoK user group. We are not the only ones face this bullying issue. They are very well organised for hunting and killing. So if you don’t want to be the next one got killed, don’t play this game!!! You will be bullied by the Koreans sooner or later. There is no fair play in this game..Version: 1.0.28.16

CrashesNice 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..Version: 1.0.1613

Terrible update. Ruins game for all players.New update broke the game for every single player. Straw that broke everyone’s back.Version: 1.0.41.12

A Game for wallet warriorsWell where do I start, the game started well and was quite good fun. There are a lot of good features which at the beginning I enjoyed. However, if you want to progress beyond a level fifteen city you have to spend money. Having the ability to gain territory is a great idea in theory, but as soon as the wallet warriors get started the ability to expand your alliance territory greatly reduces. Therefore this inhibits personal growth because if you farm tiles in their territory you get attacked. Now the passes have come in to play, and unless you are part of a wallet warrior alliance you cannot explore other provinces. So because of this and the inability to grow once you get past a certain point without spending thousands and thousands of dollars makes this one of the worst games I have played. This game is even worse than invasion which operates on the same sort of principle. I don’t have a problem with people that spend their own money but you need to cater for both types of player which in games like this will never happen..Version: 1.0.1216

Problem opening gameI have been playing this game for a while now and have paid for the updates but my game will not open now, gets to 75% and then reverts back to home page. I have sent off three requests for advice but have not heard back from anyone. Help!!!.Version: 1.0.30.14

BugHello, I’ve been playing the game for more than 463 days. Till this day I’ve loved playing and enjoying the game. There was no other mobile game that I have played it for this long. However, I’m going to give a bad review because during one of my academy research, for a old reason the game bugged out and it didn’t allow me to ask for help( this means when you’re in a alliance you ask for help from your alliance members which reduces the time it takes for a building or a research to be reduced.) On my way to Tier 5 troops this is very crucial for me because one research without help is about 125days and that’s far too long. When you ask for help this is reduced to about 70days if not less. This is a great way which the game provided to us. However, I cannot utilities this because of a bug and I’ve been getting in contact with customer service to fix this bug and nobody is willing to help. Also to mention, I’ve wasted resources on this which costed me a fair bit, and to mention that this is being going on for about 3 weeks now and they still haven’t been able to help me. I do spend a lot on this game and I don’t regret it either because I have fun. However, currently I’m not enjoying the game..Version: 1.0.41.12

Could be a great game but too much p2wAddendum: 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..Version: 1.0.2215

GAMES CRASHES WHILE LOADINGSince today’s server maintenance i can’t get into the game. It crashes at 15% loading. FIX THIS NOW. You’ll get back your 5 stars after..Version: 1.0.43.10

The game crashI play everyday on iPad Pro and everything’s was perfect until this morning, after the last update (yesterday)the game crash every time I try to open it....... I try to open on a iPad Air 2 and it does the same thing... start to open and crash at 15%.....can someone help?.Version: 1.0.43.10

Love the games but have some concernsI love the game the starting for me was amazing it doesn’t feel as pay to win and it’s great. My issues and problems arouse mainly around when events and updates started rolling out. We had whole days where we couldn’t access mail and if we bought things we couldn’t even receive them. Looking past that I contact customer support they take a day to get back to me tell me to just press buy again it won’t charge you. I do what they say and hey to my complete and utter “surprise” they double charged me then I sent them ss and information about this they didn’t respond for 4 days and then I said enough is enough went to Apple got refund on the double charge but not original purchase. They get back to me today and tell me oh sorry we aren’t able to look through the data unless you give us a Precise time I send them receipt ss and they said those aren’t precise enough it’s hard to shift through data please tell us date,day,time zone and time. I say it’s in the ss they say we can not use that data. Looks like I’m charging back for original purchase I never received. Great game terrible customer support and hopefully it gets better not worse like CoK.Version: 1.0.1017

Money hungryDon’t bother with this game they only care about the people that spend $1000+.Version: 1.0.40.18

Good gameI play this game an though I’m not a real war fanatic, ive played this game since beginning of game. Their are a few things I don’t like about this game, is that the only alliances that actually get anywhere in this game are the P2W, they rest will struggle to level up. The game was created for the money, if your not spending money an you manage to make it to level 25 at the last level you must buy gems or you will never get your t5 troops, an where not talking just a few dollars here or their we’re talking hundreds, because you must have everything at level 25, walls, castle, watch tower which you never get enough books so you must use gems, an watch tower same way, you never get enough of the arrows needed to upgrade! So unless you play to drop about 10 grand in this game in the end your gonna be very frustrated an dissipointed. They cheat you in this game all the way around, I’m talking from experience as I have account at 25 in game an can’t afford to upgrade everything in my city, an very frustrated, I may have given a higher stars except I think it’s wrong of them to force you to either spend money or quit game no way around at this point in game!.Version: 1.0.35.17

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..Version: 1.0.28.11

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..Version: 1.0.1613

Money hungry gameI’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.Version: 1.0.41.12

Technical SupportAt the start the technical support was great however now I keep getting ignored when I asked technical question regarding glitches and problems that were suppose to be fixed. I’m not pleased that such a good game with such potential has such a lazy support team. I asked how to fix my devices in game chat not linking and I got told to send screenshots or video evidence even though I can’t send a screenshot of something that isn’t there??? I’ve been ignored on other questions and it’s been weeks. I’ve just given up on those issues now. Support team and severe need an upgrade. MAJORLY!.Version: 1.0.32.25

Very enjoyable just one problemI enjoy the game a lot been playing a fair bit. But only just recently my game has been crashing every minute or so, I don’t know why it just crashes I go back into it and then it crashes like a minute later and of course this makes my gameplay difficult when I’m working with my alliance members to do certain things in the game. It is really getting annoying and I’m not sure what’s wrong please fix this. Otherwise the game itself is very enjoyable and I have a lot of fun playing it.Version: 1.0.29.17

Same old thing...But maybe I learned somethingMy opinion...So I played this game before the move to the new client. It’s prettier now, same issues though. Long time players bring in lower level players to a alliance to be farmed for rankings and prizes by family alliances. You really don’t have a choice cause if you don’t you’ll be farmed more frequently making me as a fresh returning player helpless, caught in a cycle driven by uninspired events. I brought friends in only for them to get run through the shredder also...embarrassing . Micro transactions appeared to be fun at first reveal truly deep pockets to win. People who want to compete really do need to make alts so they can farm them. Devouring even more of my free time just like a job and feels like a job. Oh and the tactical combat could be improved. The translator is the best feature of this game. Developers need to tear down the Alliance family system some how, moving high ranking connected players out of regular play so they can play out their manipulation schemes at another level of play maybe driving content not smashing low level new players with their steroid accounts. I am also terrified my CC and info has been sent abroad to countries with no protections because of said micro transactions. Apple if you have a soul you’ll let this honest review stand..Version: 1.0.41.12

Feels like a money grabSo I really liked this game in the beginning it was fun it was easy to level up but then I started grinding to get to level 12. I don’t like to buy a lot of packs because I feel like it’s cheating and pay to win. Not a major problem though until someone who is a level 19 with quadruple my power and their 3 Troops teleported right next to me and won’t stop hitting my base. I get all my resources taken from me I was at 2 million in basically everything and now I’m at barely 100k. All the game does is tell me to buy a pack to help but it won’t let me teleport unless I buy a pack and I’m not spending money on this game. You need to change the pay to win aspect. I can drop 100 on a game and do the same thing but I’m not like that there’s no satisfaction from playing that way. That fact that you advertise “buy this to help you!” Is so wrong literally if you fixed the phone to win aspect this would be the best game out there. I used to play mobile strike but the same thing happened. This game listens to its audience and does update often and give free items which I do like but being repeatedly attacked but an overpowered enemy who won’t go away and you can’t do anything except “buy some gems” is wrong of the game..Version: 1.0.35.17

Great game but doesn’t support players that have been hackedThe game is a good strategy game over all, building up your city training troops, building up commanders and research. My one big problem with the game is players who have been hacked the support platform does not support players that have been hacked. I for one was hacked, the hacker deleted all my troops, used up all my speedups and used up all my gems. They will not help to restore my account I’m left in a lurch on wether to continue playing the game and rebuild my account because of something completely out of my control or if I should just quit the game. Hundreds of pounds wasted on a game that I thoroughly enjoyed to have it taken away from me and having to rebuild my account due to security of the game, yet I haven’t got access to my secondary password (the hacker created it) and the will not reset that. Please sort this feature out and protect players accounts better!!.Version: 1.0.46.20

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..Version: 1.0.34.16

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..Version: 1.0.915

Rise of Kingdom - could be goodMy nephew had played this game for a couple of days and nagged me to join him so we could join in an alliance. I did this and played with him on and off for a further two days and during that time, we had both built up our city and alliance having spent money on rubies and special offers (which I normally would not do). Then this player (Sannada Yukimura) attack’s our cities- which I know is the purpose of the game- and defeated us - which is acceptable as part of this game. However, she continued to attack (me 3 times in a row and my nephew 5 times in a row) and left us with very little after all our hours of playing and spending money. This should not be allowed - attacking the same players until they have been left with little is not an honourable way to play and shouldn’t be allowed to happen - especially with a game where the players spend their money to build up their cities. The game needs to be updated to prevent dishonest players like her from being able to do this to other players who will never manage to get the ability to stand up to the likes of this person. Poor rate is due to the way that another player can ruin the game for others..Version: 1.0.34.16

Don’t waste your time or moneyAfter having played the game for over two months I can safely say this game is actually pretty bad. If you are willing to spend $100+ in the game maybe you’ll like it, but as a free-to-play, player the first month is fun if you can find a good alliance, which was my case and is the only reason I’ve kept playing for this long. After that first month though that’s where the fun ends. A majority of the players are extremely toxic in the kingdom chat. The game turns into a farming simulator with all the grinding you do. You will quickly notice who the pay to win players are, and there is nothing you can do to compete against them, unless you spend a stupid amount of money. The game has very little in the way of content or gameplay, and simply cycles the same few events. The one thing about this game that is somewhat redeeming is it looks nice, but everything else about it is lacking and there are other games that do a better job at everything else. There seems to be more player leaving the game than there are coming in, which is saying something. This is just another game where it feels like the developers are trying to milk the one percent of players who will spend as much as they can in order to be the best. Don’t waste your time or money on this game..Version: 1.0.1221

RacismI was watching a video and a ad popped up and this guy went to Africa and said I don’t want to be here and that guy was white.Version: 1.0.40.18

Just exhaustingJust exhausting So I’ve played this game every day for a year now (30 mins at a max), and I’m still feeling like I’m no closer to getting level 5 units. Everything just feels a bit stale, the game is definitely dominated by the high power players who only have that high level by seemingly playing all day every day. For normal people that’s just not achievable. I’m all for making a game challenging but the fact that my watchtower and castle are still only level 19 with no possible chance of that changing any time soon is just exhausting. If you don’t want a game that ultimately leaves you with a sense of underachievement due to the fact that you are a normal person with a normal work-life balance, I’d steer clear if I were you. If you have 23 hours of your day to spend killing barbarians so you just might get enough arrows of resistance to upgrade your watchtower to level 20, good luck with this game and enjoy your jobless life in your mum’s basement..Version: 1.0.44.16

If I had one wishTo 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..Version: 1.0.2014

Greedy devsThis 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..Version: 1.0.41.12

Ups and downsI 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..Version: 1.0.34.15

Getting thereThis 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..Version: 1.0.28.17

The greed of developers is highDont 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.Version: 1.0.41.12

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..Version: 1.0.42.31

Could be betterI have been playing this game for over 6 months logging in everyday having fun only thing is it can be a bit unbalanced I had been in an alliance where the pay to win was their way to live with the leader dropping hundreds a week luckily for me I never spent money on it but because of that I ended up behind almost everyone even after playing everyday for over six months one attack I lost 2mil power that was the last straw after healing all my troops I had no resources and lost all enthusiasm for it. give it a go it is fun but if you aren’t dropping money into it you shouldn’t expect too much.Version: 1.0.28.17

I am tired of false hopeA way to make this game a 100 times better is to make transactions non existent then this game would be perfect. I am tired of looking at massive multiplayer games with hope and glee as the developers are creative enough to make good and creative game mechanics that I approve of 100% in this game as YOUR mechanics are so unique as is the map and the buildings and army’s and even commanders everything about this game is great but like all other games that were supposed to be great the game itself was ruined not by the game but the community that IS FIXED on spending more money than the other alliance which gives clans like mine (Prussian federation) (now dissolved due to problems in this review) massive disadvantages as we are outnumbered and out powered by clans that are surprisingly highly organized another thing I like about this game either way I doubt this will be read but bear in mind I know transactions are a valuable income but if you love this game and want it to be TRULY DIFFERENT and a ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GAME then you must find alternative income and remove transactions in this game otherwise it will unfair and above all not fun and that’s what you want in this game... Right? -khaiser Bismarck.Version: 1.0.1613

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!.Version: 1.0.32.22

Ruined by Rich peopleThe game could be absolutely brilliant but yet again finds itself ruined by people that have loads of money. These players grow exponentially faster than your average players to the point where on our server everyone else was about 2 million power and this one player was 25million. From that point on the game was pointless. We found this player jumping between alliances burning anyone they wanted and ruining the whole game for everyone involved. The developers didn’t want to know and didn’t really care as this player was lining their pockets. Until they create Kingdoms where high spenders automatically get transported too the interest with these games quickly fades. I for one will no longer pay for any packs in game. The rewards from free events are ok, but nothing compared to what a player gets if they spend over $10,000. Shame about developers never caring about their majority fan base..Version: 1.0.1928

Disgusted with this gameI was watching YouTube the other day and an ad came up on my screen as I was waiting for the skip I witnessed this game make fun off rape and suicide in the matter of 5 seconds and I was shocked to have watched it I will never play this game and no one else should. Absolutely disgusted..Version: 1.0.38.10

Pay to win& Greedy companyThis game is ALL Pay to win- F2P have no chance Against Paying players, There’s Commanders, City skins, And Equipment that you can only get by paying 💰 They make Training troops, Upgrading Buildings, And ESPECIALLY healing troops Take an INSANE amount of time, In order to Obviously Push you to pay 💰 to speed it up, Troops die when the hospital is full, And they don’t give us NEARLY enough Space for wounded troops, they flash Ads for speed ups When our city gets attacked, Which is how paying players have the advantage: They get attacked, and just buy packs to heal their troops, Giving F2P NO CHANCE AT ALL to compete! also, they force us to complete “Verification tests” to prove we’re not Bots ( so far no proof there EVEN IS bots) the verification Is Annoying and it interrupts gameplay During important times (like getting attacked) And it pops up ALOT, Plus there’s a crazy amount of lag in this game, The main discord for this game won’t take criticism and won’t listen to the players unless they can monetize the idea) new commanders usually can only be unlocked by Competing against other players, Which is impossible ( unless you pay 💰) To be honest it’s fun, But the Wall between free to play and pay to play is WAY To big, Alot of my Alliance has Quit the game because of this) Stay Away, unless you plan on paying $$$, otherwise Lilith will give you NO CHANCE AT ALL to progress in this game.Version: 1.0.38.10

A good game but...The game is good but it constantly crash and changing server never seems to work. I tried moving to my friends server followed all the criteria there and it tells me the server is protected even though it says it’s in the nascent period and not the protected period. I’ve tried teleporting with my main account (lvl18) and my second account which level 4, clearly below level 8. I’ve also contacted them asking for help but they didn’t reply at all. Another thing is Korean dominance, the server I’m in hates my alliance for being the only none Korean people in it. Telling us to leave and saying racist stuff..Version: 1.0.27.18

Great concept ruined by Pay to Win playersI have played this game for a couple of months now. First city helped me learn a lot but the server I was in was dominated by several huge alliances that told all the others what they could and couldn’t do. No fun at all so I waited for a new server and started again. I was there in the first hour of the new server. Imagine my surprise to see players already with huge power - they are called jumpers. I tried hard again and even spent around £20 to try to catch up. Hopeless, despite playing it basically all day so that no time was wasted for upgrades and I was constantly gathering the resources needed. The game itself is great but make no mistake - you just cannot compete long term without spending a lot of money. It’s fun for a while but ultimately disappointing. As other reviewers have said, you can rise to a decent power level over time but you will never truly be able to compete at the same level. The only way the game will prosper long term in my view is by splitting servers as P2W or F2P. Only in that way would it come close to being fair. If it did I would come back and play for sure but until then it will remain deleted and one of the most disappointing gaming experiences I have had. It has so much potential that is wasted for the reasons above..Version: 1.0.38.07

The equivalence of a potatoI use to enjoy playing rise of kingdoms on a regular , however lately the company as a whole has gone an entirely different direction. What was once a friendly any player oriented game has now been directed toward the wealthy players . Lately the player and customer experience I would state as equivalent to a potato- such that it belongs in the dirt. Would not recommend investing any time ..Version: 1.0.43.13

DANGEROUS GAME! Be warned.How irresponsible and greedy the developers of this game must be. I have many points I would like to address but first and foremost: THIS GAME IS NOT FOR CHILDREN - it is new age gambling, very addictive and full of bullies who are homophobic and offensive 24/7 on a group chat that isn’t monitored in any way shape or form. I find it shocking that these developers seem to only care about getting hundreds of pounds out of their players and don’t care whatsoever about their welfare. Parents be warned - should a player get attacked on the game they are immediately offered a ‘get back on your feet’ package in the price range of £50>£100 to fast track back to health. A couple of quid I can understand but these players are spending THOUSANDS OF POUNDS on this game. It is insane. And more should be done to ensure that the vulnerable people of this world aka children and those with gambling addictions are protected from greedy apps and developers like this. This is my honest opinion. The game may be good but only if you’re willing to go bankrupt to play it. Stay well clear or pay the price. Literally..Version: 1.0.1624

游戏公司各种暗自修改武将技能,道具掉率和装备属性爆率玩了一年多,丽丽莎各种无公告修改让人忍无可忍了,金钥匙为例:以前1-1.5把绝对能出一个武将雕像,现在200把能出60-70个都算好的了。.Version: 1.0.41.12

Beautifully addictive but found wantingFirst 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..Version: 1.0.2517

Highly addictive but not worth itIf your going I got his game wanting to be a free to play player, don’t bother. I enjoy a lot of aspects to the game and got quite addicted for a while but now in late game, I have realised what a waste of time It has been. The game is completely pay to win and even 90 days into playing I can easily get squashed like a bug and looted by a player who decided to get out his mums credit card. It’s just not fun in this respect. It’s not rise of kingdoms, it’s rise of the biggest payer..Version: 1.0.45.16

Release kvk alreadyThis 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.Version: 1.0.1729

MisleadingWas duped into trying this game from an ad that showed gameplay that doesn’t exist. Will avoid this dev because of that dishonest practice.Version: 1.0.2014

Unfair and very biased towards the spenderThe game is a cool concept and it looks very nice. Cartoonishly good graphics. All the rewards you get are nice in regards to exploration and levelling up your base. Speed ups are frequent and various in type. Rally and reinforce are there and large guild sizes. These are it’s good points. The bad points are that unless you are willing to spend money you will become a farm for someone who does. This is very common. People quit over it in multitudes. The server I am on has a 71 million power alliance and this server has been alive for just over a week. And there is more in the various provinces on the map. The game will ask/invite you to buy a pack upon your first big defeat and will continue to do so every time it happens. Good advertising there! The chat seems to be uncensored and unmonitored so you can expect to read and even hear homophobia, racism and sexism. Be warned! You will be laughed at and abused should you even dare to complain about a player who has repeatedly attacked you for 7 hours straight and the attacking will continue. Bullies are commonplace and even encouraged by certain alliances. So do not expect a fair game of skill and tactics. Money rules in this game and it will until it dies. This is my opinion on this game. I hope it helps..Version: 1.0.905

Quite fun to play but the problem is the goalThis game is initially good and fun to play, lots of stuff for F2P players to keep them occupied and lots of opportunity for people who are willing to spend to power up. The problem with this game is the end goal of appointing a ‘King’ - (ignoring the fact that it’s a sexist concept for a second) it leads to the utter domination of thousands of people by a few high spenders. It means you are unable to do anything without their permission and if they decide to get involved in a dispute then you have little to no control over the outcome even if you are in the second most powerful alliance. Once you have been completely destroyed by another alliance it is difficult to recover unless you spend huge sums of money as a result of the deaths/hospital system. In summary unless you are prepared to spend $10,000+ early on within a kingdom or agree to do the bidding of someone who has then this game isn’t for you. If you want a game to play as an escape from your real life of being told what to do all the time then this isn’t for you. I would probably suggest playing FarmVille as an alternative as unless you want to have to start all over again every other day then farming is about all you can do and for 2 days a week you can’t even do that..Version: 1.0.1729

PAY TO WIN!Do like spending $300 a week to even stand a chance in this game? Well this games for you! Honestly developers, stop making this game fun for only pay to win players. Every single one of friends loved this game at the start but a month later we realised we can’t keep up. And we limited to half the games opportunity’s. if you even out the playing field for both players there would be sooo much more players on this game! But nope, this game only supports people who empty their entire life savings into the game. This game has so much potential, the developers are all money hungry I guess🤦‍♂️ you guys are gonna ruin the game if you keep going in this direction. My guess if they don’t stop this pay to win trash this game will be dead in 6 months. Well Anyway, I’m sick of this game, I can’t progress without spending money, so thank you rise of kingdoms for wasting my time👋🏼.Version: 1.0.44.21

Last healing update was a pure cash grabHealing update removed a crucial part of gameplay, it is purely cash a cash grab of epic proportions. The major part of pvp in this game involves lots of healing, it is now limited, so therefore only paying players can heal. I’m not spending anymore money on the game until this has been fixed..Version: 1.0.34.16

Great game/bad gameDepends 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..Version: 1.0.38.07

Pay to win.5 Stars for the game itself. 0-1 Star for gaming experience. I enjoyed this game so much, I can actually say that I love spend time playing this during my spare times. There’s so much to do and well balanced. Me and my friends put a lot of effort into this game and when I say a lot I mean at least 12hours a day or more... but just like any other games out there, Free players has no stand in this game AT ALL, I mean AT ALL. Multiple times we got smashed by other players that is constantly donating to this game, you can tell as they have Commanders that you can only get by paying... and when you ask other players how they power up ridiculously fast obviously the answers is always to donate... Sadly, not just me but also others are feed up of this & decided not to play no more. Hopefully one day, whenever the developers decide to change this, I get back to it. And yes, you do a lot of free events for free but payer players also has access to this events which means it doesn’t matter if theres free events or not they still be on top because they simply pay. I just would like to thanks for creating such a enjoyable game but unfortunately just another pay to win game, It’s a shame the developers don’t see our side or don’t do anything regarding it since I am not the only one who is mentioning this problem..Version: 1.0.32.25

I always have to refresh this game completely crashes....Can’t even enjoy the game. I will play for like 5 minutes the crashes I don’t get it what a disappointment.Version: 1.0.39.22

Be FOREWARNED: NEW PLAYERSI 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)..Version: 1.0.2517

Big alliances and pay to win make this game unbearable :(Love this game, there’s so many different elements to it that keep my playing for hours at a time and the in chat translator makes it easy to chat to people from all over the world! The only issue is as a low spender (as well as my alliance) we are being totally dominated by a play to win group. They attack smaller groups for trying to progress or leave their territory and force everyone to carry similar clan tags at the threat of burning everything they’ve been building if they don’t. There’s no way we could possibly beat them and it has already forced people to quit the game. I don’t know why big spenders would even be in the same server as play for free or low spending players. Surely if they were put in a server with other big spenders they could have a spend off and leave others alone to have fair battles for sanctums and alters etc. Would only recommend if you’re willing to spend a lot of money or join a big alliance that do. Even then they may enforce their ‘rules’ and will turn on you and burn your city for stepping out of line. Big spenders take this game very seriously so beware if you’re looking for some light hearted entertainment..Version: 1.0.32.25

MisleadingThe 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..Version: 1.0.34.14

Healing patch updateThe game changed 1000 limited healing helps to having lag time after 1000 helps. The thing they didn’t mention is the lag time is 3 minutes.. so it’ll take you 90 mins to heal when it could’ve been 30 mins. This update fooled a lot of players since the game didn’t specify how long the lag time is haha Lot of people will quit after finding out the lag time :) don’t play this game. Waste of your time.Version: 1.0.35.17

Fake AdsI saw an ad on YouTube but when I downloaded the app the game looked or played nothing like the ad.Version: 1.0.37.08

Unfair Game - BewareRise 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..Version: 1.0.41.12

Great gameFun game that keeps you interested unlike some other games set up like this (clash of clans). The barbarian, pvp, and conquest aspect of the game keeps everything interesting along with the level up part of commanders. The quality of in-depth game setup was well thought out and the series of game aspects addict any player who likes games based like this. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because once you get the lost temple, the game kind of seems pointless at that point. I wish there was a way to move your kingdom to new land. There is a possibility to do this but you can’t be over level 8 city. I’m sure updates to come will fix this part of the game and I’m not really worried about getting bored with it... Great game overall! Ps. Was a great game** now has been taken over by political correctness. My nickname is Hammytheman on my main account I started 2 months ago then I try to start another account and make the name Hammytheman2 and the game says “contains sensitive words”. Everyone is so worried about how “sensitive” everyone is that i cannot even pick a simple nickname for a game I play. Just because there are pussies that support this game. Well I will no longer be supporting it. And also I emailed “tech support” and haven’t heard from them in weeks. Bye..Version: 1.0.1519

Killing F2PLilith is killing f2p woth the newest patch making speed ups less accessible and promoting gear.Version: 1.0.40.18

RoK Don’t Care About Their CommunityAfter 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..Version: 1.0.1920

New healing updatePlease 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..Version: 1.0.34.16

Do not downloadPretty fun game in my opinion. Unfortunately greedy devs ruining the game by limiting the number of heals each player can receive daily for free, forcing active players to either buy additional speedups or be active in wars. Very limiting and frustrating for free to play and low spenders.Version: 1.0.36.18

Killing F2PThis latest update targeting F2P players is a step in worst direct....killing the game.Version: 1.0.41.12

Great game but short for f2pThis 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..Version: 1.0.41.12

Your ad was disgustingI came across an ad for your game on YouTube in which it shows a woman attacked by a man and holding her tattered clothes together at the end. What kind of idiot on your development team thought that that was ok? Awful! Get rid of that immediately. Absolutely disgusting.Version: 1.0.38.10

.Shame on you Lilith for ruining the game once again. Removing speed ups and gems from barb drop is a terrible idea. On another note I also want to say that I have reported multiple bot users with proof and all you say is “we will send them a warning”. Makes me think you make money from Auto 360 VN too and then you claim you block these bots but you actually don’t cause you’re in bed with them..Version: 1.0.40.18

CrashFor some reason the game crashes almost every 2 minutes and is infuriating having to restart the game again and again and again.Version: 1.0.34.16

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..Version: 1.0.27.18

Amazing but...I’m leaving a low star with hopes the developers will read it. This game is super fun and easy to learn the mechanics of it all. That said, after about a month of play reality if the game has set in. The level of real politic that happens in this game is unreal. My alliance was infiltrated by a high level governor from another alliance and made leader because he seemed he knew what he was doing. Long story short, in about a week I found out he is basically working as an operative for another alliance using two account to sow discontent and pull players out of my alliance to a more powerful alliance. So now we have a player who basically threatens all the players in our alliance that his main alliance will destroy us we don’t play ball, not cool. We can’t get rid of him and he basically has complete control now. I have no doubt that this is going on everywhere in the game in every server. I doubt they will, but I would like to hope the developers would find a way to deal with this. Additionally after you get above 13th level the amount of time goes way up. And those at the top levels and power are likely spending massive amounts of real money to get there. If you are at a lower level, or play casually, this game will quickly become a nightmare..Version: 1.0.1216

No money no play...It was fun at first, but now nothing help us poor people..Version: 1.0.41.12

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..Version: 1.0.34.16

UpdatesHi there I don’t really like the fact that when there is a new update it isn’t immediately available on my apply IPad and phone as I get system messages telling me I’ll be locked out of the game after three days and I still can’t update the game.Version: 1.0.1128

Just a money grabFor a game that is dependent on community and communication you’d think the developers will actually listen to their player base and fix their chat system and not look for every opportunity to make the players spend more money. With every “patch” the games chat system gets worst. They even made a patch specifically to fix the chat but it broke it even more...show the competence of the devs. If that wasn’t enough to show how incompetent Lilith games are maybe this will help. They removed game mechanics where in the name of “game improvement against bots” just so they can force people to spend more in the game. Do not download this game and support this money grabbing incompetence developer..Version: 1.0.34.16

1000 helps per day is not enoughYou have the verification system which can’t even do its job to detect bots. Now, you reduce helps to 1000 per day which will affect all players not just people who pay to play. At this rate, sooner or later your company will be screwed over. Before any update, do a survey to understand majority’s opinions. 1 Star.Version: 1.0.34.16

Adds For the game.I just wanted to say.IM SICK OF SEING THIS ADD. I DOWNLOADED IT.NOTHING FUN..Version: 1.0.37.08

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..Version: 1.0.43.10

Good F2P game. Not great Customer ServiceBeen playing this game on and off for a good 6 months or so now and have to say that if you go in knowing what to expect from this sort of game you won’t be disappointed. Smooth play style even if you’re a free player and good graphics makes this well worth considering I would advise against though if you change devices a lot for whatever reason. Redownloaded a couple of weeks ago and wanted to purchases some gems. I couldn’t as my device wasn’t the “original” one. Spoke to customer services who said to “wait a while”. I gave it a week then spoke again to their team who advised on 24 hours. 5 days later no luck. As i said, as long as you aren’t considering changes devices either because you like to, or because your profession has you using multiple devices and are considering this game then go for it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed..Version: 1.0.2015

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..Version: 1.0.38.07

Worst P2W Game EverLet 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.Version: 1.0.27.18

BulliesThis game could be fun but the powerhouses always win! I just started playing and I keep getting attacked by people that are way higher level than I am. Here I am rocking 50k might and I’m getting attacked my people with lights in the millions. They take all my resources and leaves me with nothing to build with. How is that fair for the new guy? Shouldn’t there be a rank limit to how low you can attack someone? I really want to keep playing but what’s the point if I can’t even keep my resources to build my city? I’ve even spent money to increase resources but it was of no use. I don’t want to keep spending money on a game that caters to the powerhouses and screws the little guy. I tried joining alliances but I have to “apply”. Meaning I won’t get accepted if I’m not of certain might. But how can I get that might if I can barely scrap by when the big guys just easily come and take what they want and there’s nothing I can do about it. If you’re a beginner then don’t bother playing this game. It’ll frustrate you to no end and it’ll be a waste of time. If you have unlimited amount of funds then by all means try the game. I’ll go back to playing and spending money on similar games that is a little more balanced..Version: 1.0.2127

Worst game I ever played on my iPad AirI’ve been playing this game for about a year. In all that time there has been a severe server connection issue with this game. Typically during 30 minutes of game time my connection will be kicked by the game on average about seven times. Sometimes it is much more often than every three minutes. There are elements of the game I cannot play because of being kicked. My WiFi connection averages 33 Mb/s and uses a fibre optic 50 Mb/s to the router. My iPad Air was bought new in 2015. I play many games of this type on it and this is the only game that constantly and incessantly kicks my connection. I can not recommend it to anyone who plans to use an iPad Air to play it. I have contacted Lilith three times in the past about this connection issue and nothing has been done to improve the situation. Review update folks, I’ve found out that this game needs at least 2GB of RAM memory to run smoothly, curtesy of Lilith games. So it would seem that it can’t be played on any iPad with less memory than that, which means nearly all the older iPads. Guess I won’t be playing it much longer. As far as I can determine, the only iPads it will be trouble free on with regard to RAM memory are the iPad Mini and the iPad Pro (3GB & 4GB RAM respectively). Apple Support are now aware of this since I talked directly with them about it..Version: 1.0.2410

I hate the gameEvery time I go off for 2 days I get teleported and end up far from my alliance fix this please..Version: 1.0.27.18

Pay to win free to lose.A great game if you want to pay to win for a digital ego. Otherwise pure horse crap..Version: 1.0.35.17

Quitting gameI’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..Version: 1.0.30.13

Worst update everHard to believe after almost three years of playing, I have to witness this unimaginable update.Version: 1.0.41.12

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.Version: 1.0.1120

Great game! Ruined by small thingsI have played rok for about 1 year now and after all my time I’ve only spent minimum £500 even so I can still see the HUGE difference in f2p and p2p once I was in a server that had very little spenders but this meant that top 10-20 players was 5-6mil while everyone below that was 1-2mil this caused the top 5 alliances dominate ruining the game for the rest of the kingdom stuff like this needs to be handled me and countless others have emailed rok with a suggestion for f2p servers or limited spending servers this could really help f2p close the gap between f2p and p2p I think paying in these types of games is a way to speed up the process of grinding not put you weeks ahead of everyone else I hope you reply because I am interested to know what you think about my suggestion I also play in a lot of Arabic alliances and have come to realise that the translation is very bad some sentences don’t even come close to matching what they actually say I hope this is another thing that can be fixed.Version: 1.0.35.17

Pay 2 Win past a certain pointThere 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..Version: 1.0.43.13

Great game bad Customer support.Might be that the player base is far greater then the customer support. Spend well over $100 to still get a miserable customer support. Overall it’s a F2P game with a platform of pay to win. A Major pay to win with no restrictions. I don’t mind, but the few that started in a new opened kingdom do! I get to push them around left to right. But I openly admit this will run the genera player base away. Besides that, Your making thousands to millions in this game. You have no excuse for bad customer support. Also you need to do something about Players moving cities right next to Cotoes they can attack and instantly issue an attack with no warning for players not currently on phone. When moving cities their should be either a %30 to %60 weakness for an hour before attacking or a just an hour of no attacking. Also Resource gathering in city is pretty absurd. You need to highest increase the amount you can gather within city resources. No one even bothers with those and just goes out and farm. City movement should be restriction of 1 to 2 days. Overall, game has a lot of imbalances and they arnt doing much to fix them prior to favoring pay to win over game quality..Version: 1.0.2417

Greed driven decision2020 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..Version: 1.0.41.12

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. TO SUMMARISE: 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..Version: 1.0.2218

No chance for low spendersGame is great fun but unless you spend thousands you don’t stand a chance and it’s a complete waste of time. Been on many servers now and always the same story. Huge spenders take over everything and push out all the regular players. I’m sure the devs love this as it makes them ton of money. Best to find a game where if you only spend hundreds you can still have fun and play with the community this is definitely not that. It’s totally catered to the egos of the biggest wallets, which is fine I mean the object of owning a gaming company is to make money of course. But if your looking for a fun game where you don’t have to spend a ton of money it can still have s defeinately isn’t it. Many players I know have spent a couple hundred dollars only to be completely destroyed and pushed out server after server. There is no longevity in the game for normal spenders. Game caters to the super rich. Last server I was on four hours after the server started there was already an alliance with 275 million power and many of their players had 7-9 million power, I mean seriously what’s the point lol? There really needs to be a better balance between big and low spenders. Game should be called Battle of the Wallets..Version: 1.0.1403

Enjoyable at first, gets boring later onSo I started playing this game a while ago, I built a fairly powerful alliance and kept expanding. But then I realised, after you’ve built an alliance and ruled the kingdom, there isn’t anything else to do. I wish strategy games didn’t have an ‘end’ and you can develop your city. Another problem I had with this game is that the city area is just too small. You should at least get given more land or buy areas with stone, wood, or gold. Another thing is once an alliance is built and is very, very powerful, you cannot build your own alliance and have fun because the strong alliances crush your alliance, making you miss out on all the fun you have building an alliance and teaming up. Also I wish there was someone who monitors the world chat, it doesn’t really have a use and there is only usually spammers, and people who talk about things completely unrelated to the game. Really enjoyable once you start playing, but gets boring quickly over time, and that’s why I have decided to rate Rise Of Kingdoms with 3 stars..Version: 1.0.1928

A terrible ‘system’ and customer service!You might regret if you get this game! At first I thought the game was nice, like the art work of characters and play with alliances. However, my account was banned one day with no signs, after I spent my time and money on the game!! Feel so scammed!! Asked customer service, no reply for more than 12 hours, no reply from their Facebook page at all. When customer service actually got back to me, each time I asked them to explain the reason for account ban, there was a different reason and the ‘system’ had detected something different that I didn’t do??!! Total BS, it is terrible! If you play the game might end up like me, regretting it so so much!.Version: 1.0.1410

Decent game but.....Like the title says, it’s honestly a decent game. But it lacks a variety of things. One main thing is it’s nearly impossible to level up commanders or anything unless you are spending a certain bit of money or hoarding everything like a grandma. I am not saying it’s impossible but it takes a longer time and it will result in a very long time. But my major problem with this game is the BOTS, there is no way to report it personally. Now when you ask “ how do you know it’s a bot” trust me, when they are spamming messaging about purchasing items and such, it’s a bot. But it’s funny how the developer Lilith can just say “oh just block them and ignore them”. It shouldn’t come to the point where these simple problems can’t be fixed. Like I don’t know how these people can’t just do a simple job and ban these accounts on the spot when there is evidence of the player being a bot. Also if I get a response I will like a actual response not a generic saying we have set up ways for verification for bots not to pass it. Somehow they always do but doesn’t change. A actual honestly review will be greatly appreciate, I would like to wake up one day and not see 10 bot messages in my Chat..Version: 1.0.39.35

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!!!!.Version: 1.0.1025

Money rules supreme hereI’ll start with the good points. It is great game with great system for upgrading your base and troops. Forming rallies within your alliance and attacking other alliance. The expanding territory and the tower system is great. The goals system where people work together to get rewards are great. I really would normally rate this a 5 star game but there’s one major problem. It’s people buying their way into power. I understand that the game has to make money but it’s gotten to the point where it’s not fun to play. There is always one alliance where it’s players that is willing to spend a hell of a lot of money to be the best. (I mean at least a couple 100 pounds easily) My latest alliance that is in the top ten(so not weak) got stomped on by one guy in the top alliance and they had 20 guys that were just as powerful. I wouldn’t be surprised if that alliance could take on most the server by themselves without breaking a swear. If people can buy their way into power to that extreme what’s the point of playing? Also this is my second review as my last view got deleted..Version: 1.0.1128

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..Version: 1.0.1120

Boring and FlawedWhen I first played this game it was fun and I get to attack other player and stuff but then I went to boot camp and after 2 month I came back I realize I haven’t been attacked even once which is a good thing at that time I was just 5 mil. But now I reach 11-12 mil and I have not ever been attacked for over a year now so I’m kinda getting bored so I decided to teleport to someone and attack them but I realize that it won’t let me teleport to anywhere else literally I can’t teleport to someone else territory and I can’t teleport to a open area without any territory because my alliance isn’t anywhere close by.. like I’m literally stuck here and can’t do anything I’m pretty sure this is the only reason why I haven’t got attacked for years now because stronger player can’t teleport and attack once another. This should be fix. Allowing us to teleport anywhere we want. I’m literally bored right now. What the point in getting stronger when you can’t even use any of the troops. I really wanna experience the same thing when I first played the game I got massacre by 4-5 different people who is a lot stronger then I am.Version: 1.0.34.14
