I hope you have money to throw at the game otherwise expect to be wiped out often. I have managed to advance without paying but it is a slow process and often set back by players with as much as 5 times my power destroying all my troops. If you can deal with this then it’s a great game, but if you get frustrated don’t bother because you will be targeted often
Spend that money on your friends and family. Not on this BS.
Skip this game. Another “free” game that grossly misrepresents actual gameplay. This game will frustrate you in to spending money to get to next levels. Waste of time.
They make the ads look soooo good. Then you get into the gameplay and you’re like “What happened?!”
This game is not favorable for new players, the level gap and the knowledge gap is huge between new players and seasoned player. Without support and guidance this game is a waste of time since the highest level is allowed to attack the lowest level with no restriction. If they wanted they can keep even the most optimistic players in the ground if they don’t spend money on shields and gold
I enjoy this game, especially once you grow enough to start being involved in the quests. However growth can be a big struggle, especially if you don’t have the money to make in-app purchases. There is no balance during attacks and top tier players are able to attack the lowest tier players. I almost quit the game when that happened to me. Fortunately, my alliance is strong and everyone was very helpful in helping me rebuild. I can only imagine how many players didn’t have that support and we’re basically forced to quit.
This is not a normal pay to win game where you can still thrive if you don’t spend money. You have to spend big and I mean big. I have heard of people who have spent upwards of 5 to 10 thousand U.S. dollars. name of game is stay competitive or get left behind and destroyed by the people who do spend big. Want better armor to give you a chance that’s right you will spend like 400 to 500 dollars getting the demon hunter set which was the best now it is Sun King with the update. My friend spent 3000 dollars to get that set built. If you don’t spend money those who do will make the rules. Here is an example say one guy is a castle level 30 and your a non spending level 20 he will have 100s if not 1000s of percent damage over you and totally wipe out all your troops and take all your resources. You will have to rebuild for weeks. Want to shield to protect yourself well then you have to spend money (5 to 10 U.S. dollars for shield) or hope your in an alliance and have lots of honor like 60k to buy an 8 hour shield which will protect you, you guessed it 8 hours just enough time to at least go to work or sleep but if you get stuck in traffic or sleep to long BAM!! Your back to square one. Customer service is a joke so just hope you don’t get a bug there is no one coming to help. Getting bullied by another player don’t worry probably a friend of the mods and nothing will happen. There is no brackets for player level you can be attacked by any level and don’t believe the ads this is just a castle simulator. I don’t usually write reviews but I just don’t want anybody else getting taken by this developer or game. Well you have heard the warnings. Buyer Beware and have a nice day.
Customer service from these guys is garbage. They sent me an in game mail telling something went wrong with the purchase with “equal value” of goodies. I don’t need or want the goodies, I need the 3k gold I bought. When I opened the ticket, it’s an AI (bad words here). Worst garbage service EVER!!! The game is fun, nothing to do with the ads, that’s a different game, but fun none the less. You can’t get anywhere if you don’t join an alliance, so go make friends. Other than stay away from purchases and opening tickets with the support staff and everything will go well!
This game is the epitome of Pay to Win. It is impossible for any active player to stay competitive without spending a large quantity of money. Customer service does not even attempt to address this issue or even cope with regular players active players who are just trying to enjoy the game. Often Customer Service ignore or don’t respond to any suggestions or issues being reported. This game is only about one thing and one thing only.... MONEY. At any given point, the biggest spender will always have the advantage making the less spenders unable to progress or be stuck forever in the lower tiers or at the bottom of the food chain.
It takes a lot of money to be decent/survive this game. The shield time don’t add up. Once you pop a new shield your remaining time from your old one went away. Annoying and silly.
