Price gouging, as well as, bait and switch tactics 1/5
I initially enjoyed this game quite a bit. Unfortunately, the devs are more concerned about making money than they are about their players. To progress in the game you have to by packs. There is no way around it. If that’s not bad enough as soon as you buy a pack the prices immediately go up every time. This results in you paying $100 for a pack that someone else gets for $5. The exact same pack. Then you have to read what is offered on the pack closely. Many times you aren’t getting what you expected. ‘Lifetime’ boosts are only good for a limited time. Also, I bought a pack that specifically stated that it would give me an ‘additional’ 50% off of research and building costs. I never got the additional 50% off building costs and the research reduction lasted 7 days and stopped. This was a ‘lifetime’ booster. When I contacted customer service they tell me that there packs never stack even though it listed it as an additional reduction in costs. Several emails later they still refuse to fix the problem and refuse to answer why it worked temporarily if stacks don’t happen. Again, they are only interested in making as much money as possible. Steer clear of this game.
Should be No Stars 1/5
By Small joy
So if you want an easy rundown of the game...the game or rather the company and people behind the running of the game are crooks. The game is stacked in such a way that only some are allowed to progress while others are not. For example right now there is currently an event. I however cannot take part in the event bc I cannot obtain the acquired materials. I cannot buy the materials with game currency nor can I buy with real world currency. Upon reaching out to the support staff of game their response is telling me to do the event to obtain the materials (see the stupidity here yet?). I have however found not only are my fellow guild mates doing the event they are able to purchase the items for the event with real $$, yet my gold store does not offer what I need. Again support told me to check the gold store. (Again they are capitalizing on stupidity). This is just one instance of many where the stupidity and unfair business practices of Epic Action comes out. I can give you hundreds of times. This is not a good game, or it could be if the persons behind it had a soul, a brain and knew right from wrong. My personal recommendation is to stay away from this game. All it will do is waste your time, creating unnecessary headaches and skew your view on corporations that claim to be about the people but only care about crushing you and stealing your hard earned$$.
Could be a great game but the developers are too greedy 1/5
By Evolution is a fraud
This is a great game, but the developers are so greedy they are ruining it. Lowering my rating again. The game is an engaging game where you rule a kingdom (which is called an empire) within a loose association of kingdoms (called a guild, not an empire). You have to manage your resources, forge alliances and trade with others to get ahead in the game. Or if you have a ton of money you can just skip that and become a god and just be a bully. There are frequent events that cater to the big spenders and the rest are sidelined to wait it out. If you have saved up enough, you can put up a shield to protect yourself during these events, but it takes two weeks of concerted effort to save up and the pay-to-play events happen weekly or sometimes several times a week.
Be very careful if you buy something in this game. Usually you will spend a lot of money to get very little capability. For instance if you buy materials, they do not give you enough to craft anything. If you buy a Monster unlock, you actually get nothing at the first level other than the ability to hatch eggs. You cannot employ the monsters without buying another in app purchase which again gives very little capability. Most purchases that run $100 give you very limited and fleeting capability. You can expect what would cost you $1 in most games will cost $100 in FFXV. Don’t worry if you are a new player, though because your first few purchases are discounted. I believe the price points are $2, $25, $50 and then almost everything will be $100.
Among lots of in-game scams, they also make unauthorized purchases. Over the past few month I have been charged USD$1205 for purchases I never made and that never reflected as in-app purchases in my account. The interpersonal environment is also wildly toxic. Try something else please 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Dark World and Support a nightmare 1/5
Well the game WAS great at first now the Dark world has become a nightmare for everyone including me . If you have millions to drop on the packs you’ll manage just fine. That is if you like paying for something and it dose not get delivered to you and you contact the game maker and they copy and paste a response instead of trying to correct the situation they cast off blame to the player. Also what you buy today or win in any event is obsolete the next week but wait you can always get more in the gold store for 100.00 ! Also be prepared for a glitchy experience, no matter what device you try and play on it will glitch so if your working on trying to be patient with things this is the game for you. And how they have 4 stars is beyond me ! Probably bots or someone paid to give good feedback! Oh well not like they will read this or if they do I will get a copy and paste message. Either way here is the one star you deserve developers and makers of the game known as the pay all to not play !
You won’t go far without $ 1/5
The devs put that they offer things in these packs and when you buy them and they don’t work they just keep arguing with you and refuse to refund you at all.
Also your not going to go far unless you want to drop at least a few thousand.
Fun, but be aware.... 1/5
By Dookie Ballz
This game is a lot of fun don’t get me wrong. My empire is a level 15 blah blah. So I decided to buy one of the micro-transactions because my resources were scarce and the higher you go the more resources you need. You get my drift. Anyways, the first transaction was 4.99 right. I was like okay no problem. So I closed the app. Got back on a few hours later and what do you know. All micro transactions are 19.99, 49.99 and 99.99. What the hell happened to the 4.99 ones. This game is a definite money grabber for sure. Don’t download game if you aren’t willing to pay the price. Other than that it’s a real fun game for when your sitting on the toilet taking a crap.
I am now currently at Citadel Level 77 at 12.5 billion power. This game needs a serious fix. Micro transactions are 100$ bucks a pop. Unbelievable. Do not buy if you planning on starting this game. Telling you now, it’s going to burn your pockets. Great game but the creators are total scam artists.
Not satisfied 1/5
By The wolf 6868
I have payed a pack that I didn’t get what it’s included, I have pictures for everything, so I have to react and complain for iTunes and apple care with a copy of what I said and for what I see it as tricked the customer and stealing money without getting what was paid for , “ you can name it whatever you want “ , in addition to , Realm event is coming soon in hours and I can’t do anything except ( watching) people participating and not doing anything, so , will you try to solve what you did or I will not stop , now I’m still writing to you , it could end up being ask for a refund for all what I have paid until now ! , I’m not satisfied at all about that ,
!!!!AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COSTS!!!! 1/5
ED 10/4/19 This game is dead. The realm l was in was completely destroyed by petty bully gamers who could spend limitless amounts of money on the game and then literally drive all but themselves to quit. Also my account was stolen by my nephew’s friend when they were on my phone. All it takes is to put in a new email and the verification goes ONLY to the new email, without sending an email to the current one. So, l was told since l had ‘shared access’ to the account, the account was banned, l could not and would not receive any money back (l stupidly spent money on this game) and they will not have any further responses or contact regarding the issue. So basically, l was told to bleep off, they don’t care, and all l asked was to have the account email changed back. Nice of them. The development company is the greediest group of ‘developers’ in gaming history and they ignore their customers issues and suggestions. The amounts they want for basically nothing is hysterical. The game is dead, and was snuffed out by the very people who created it. Pathetic. Avoid this game at all costs!!!!!!!!!!
ED 7/25/19 the game is on life support. The developers are ignoring the game, probably working on other things. There are no decent events, and the ones they have now are totally useless. They do not respond positively to contact and most of their server 1 players have quit. Dozens of players on my server have quit and are dead accounts. Don’t waste your time and especially your money on this game.
I have been playing the game a long while and it is pretty much dead, as the developers have seemingly written off half of the players. Their events are pathetic at best, and the rewards for what events there are are useless. Hero characters cannot be advanced past certain levels even though players have billions of EXP points for them. The Noctis character needs Heroic medals to advance past level 100, yet you cannot get them in the game to promote him more. The Prompto hero HAS Heroic medals to promote him more but he cannot be promoted past level 101. ??? It went most two full weeks without any events and people are starting to leave the game. The map l am on is full of dead accounts and lots of us are rapidly losing interest in this game. I have never seen a game that purposely is trying to run off dedicated players. Oh, and packs are ridiculously expensive. $99.99 for a pack and in many of them it does even give you the necessary resources to do one upgrade on one building. Packs at lower prices would sell more of them, making more money, but it seems simple economics is not required to become a mobile app game coder.
Pay to play 1/5
By not to be hustled
This is a pay to play game where only the people with he deepest pockets can win. No skill involved at all, just lots of money to buy expensive packs.
Packs typically run $99.99 USD on iOS. They occasionally run discounted packs and they are cheaper on android devices. But you can easily drop thousands of dollars on this game in no time.
My advice - stay away. Game play is very limited, pretty juvenile and pretty pointless beyond feeding your own ego.
Final fantasy 1/5
The ad for this game keeps popping up on a game that I am currently playing. The ad is defective and nothing has been done about it. I never can get right back into the game that I am playing. It is very annoying. Makers of the game; please fix the error!
Crap game pay to win 1/5
I wish I could give zero stars. Just another pay to win game. I put in my time for some a hole that payed their way to the top to wipe me out in one second. Oh yeah and don’t forget the endless supplies you need that take between 4 and 12 hours to get. Say I need 100,000 gill it takes me 10 hours to get half of it and I mean 10 real life hours. For someone to end it in one March. Two levels higher than me and I can’t even defend myself. Absolutely retarded.
The game used to be fun. Now it’s terrible!!! They say there will be events yet nothing comes. They just want you to spend money like crazy!!! If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars to be stuck and nothing to do DO NOT download and play!!!
The add is everywhere!!! 1/5
By Ben Kavoossi
I see this add ALL THE TIME. That is why I decided to download the game. It’s really boring.
money grab 1/5
$100 packs to unlock new buildings troops monsters about 10 players in a realm spend $1000-$2500 a month to remain in front and keep F2P from growing. Also they all players to have 10-62 yes i know a F2P with 62 accounts so he can spend the trillions in T4 resources per account in research
Drain battery and use lot of cellular data... 1/5
By Xeno 746393
This game drain battery like no other that I’ve experienced... expect your phone to be constant hot when playing this game. It also download a lot of data when playing... this game is best play at home with access to multiple devices (due to battery drain) and access to WiFi (so it does not use up all your cellular data). The game is pay to win, accept that and you should be fine.
Pay to play 2/5
I only give this app a 2 star rating instead of a 1 because I enjoy this game ONLY because of my guild and the friendships I have made there. If it was not for my guild mates I would have stopped playing this game a long time ago. This game is a pay to play. You are expected to have a bottomless credit card to get ahead in the game
And to not be bullied by those who pay to get ahead in the game. Without your guild it would take you years to gather the resources you need to level up your buildings and even then some building take years literally to build. (I’m not exaggerating) the developers only care about one thing and that is to make money. The events are repeated often and makes the game boring to play most of the time. It’s very hard to get and find resources that you actually need. If you don’t want to spend thousands of money on this game or are interested in finding a guild to just make friends and very very very slowly level up your empire I wouldn’t suggest playing this game.
Pay to play SCAM! 1/5
By epic action GFYS
You essentially cannot compete in this game without paying! Then when you do pay they make special troops you can only get by paying more. All the players have lost interest in your greedy cash grab and have warned all players to quit now! This game will be dead within weeks at this rate! It is a trap! Stay away! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! Oh and one more thing about the game. It's a SCAM!
I love that there are people still playing this game. You must be really stupid!
Do people still download this after reading all the most recent reviews? HAHAHAHAHA!
Pack prices are ridiculous 1/5
The prices on the packs when you first start are $4.99 they increase to $19 then from there shoot up to $99 the prices are predatory and the app developers are scumbags. There is absolutely no reason the prices should be this high for this game. It’s not even worth it. If you want to get stuck in a money trap then download. Just know you have been warned.
I would play but 1/5
I would love this game if it was at all like the tower defense ads that are available randomly...
I got this for robux 5/5
By Rainbow girl 24
I found this app on easy robux. Today. Who new I would’ve became addicted
Annoying adds 1/5
I know that almost every game or app has adds but every time I turn around I see the same add and most of the time when I press the “x” on the bottom of the screen it takes FOREVER to go away but I’m not trying to show hate I’m trying to say that this is very Annoying and it might just be my phone but that does not explain the reason why it takes me forever to continue to my activity that I was doing but when I press the download button it doesn’t hesitate on taking one single second to switch to my App Store
Do not play this game. You will be forced to spend $100 every week to keep up since they update the meta of the game every week to make money. I have been playing for a year and every single aspect of this game is pay $100 for every single new feature and then the developers will update the game with new content a week later or maybe even 24 hours later with a $100 pack that makes the $100 pack you just bought obsolete. This is the absolute worst game you can play and waste your money on. Every event is p2p once you get past a few weeks in the game. The developers at first make the game a bit f2p in the beginning and then they take away all f2p aspects of the game as you grow so you are time invested in the game and then they have you. I REPEAT. Do not play this game, get yourself an Xbox or play a real final fantasy game not a re skin cheap money ploy that this game is. RUN FROM THIS GAME.
Stop showing me this ad please 1/5
Stop showing me this ad
Was fun for a while 1/5
Game was fun for a while. Joined a good guild, did some cool things, then it just grew stagnant. Regular events just stopped happening and we seem to be stuck in a loop of mini events. Devs ruined the game by releasing super troops such as undying guardians. At this point the game is just boring. I have no incentive to log in anymore. What about logging in for the guild people? Well, we have a group chat outside the game.
Overheating phone 1/5
Phone overheats when playing . Not a great game app because of that.
Great game the first couple of days, then they offer you a couple of good packs, after that all pay to play thousands if you want to compete. Do not waste your time. Spend some money and buy a real game instead of being dollared and 100$ to death to stay competitive
No New Events Everytime 1/5
Take them 2 months to have new events they try to make this boring than afk games nothing new everyday or everyweek its so boring no progress for months
Please pass on this game 2/5
After over a year of playing and $1200 still a bottom level player hiding in a constant shield.
Literally have not even tried to even defend against an attack in 8 months. let alone try to attack someone.
Game lost its way to pay to win. Will sell $99 packs for gear/items/whatever that will be useless within weeks.
Great game but not worth the time if you play for fun 1/5
This game is very fun and interesting to play, but it seems like only the players that are able to spend $200-$300 per month are able to level up. You should not spend any money at all when you’re playing this game, because as soon as you buy any kind of material slowly clear up, another player that has spent more money than you will steal them all.
If there were two sets of worlds, one for people who pay to play and another for people who are just playing for fun, it might be more fair. I played for three months and spent weeks saving up materials to build. Everything gets wiped out overnight as soon as you hit a level 20. Luckily I’ve only spent $4.99. I would play this game if it didn’t cost so much, but I am only playing for fun so it really isn’t worth it to do this.
Another part that would make this game more fun to play or at least allow lower level people to grow, is prevents people from high levels from attacking people who are a fraction of their level. Level fives can be attacked by people that are level 60. It seems very difficult to level up, because people then playing longer than you take all of your materials. Also within a matter of minutes, the same player can hit you 10 to 20 times. There should be a limit that the same player can only hit you maybe three times in a 24 hour period. Otherwise you take a break for 10 minutes, and the same player has hit you 20 times.
Don’t waste your money on this game! 1/5
Do not waste your money on this game the developers are crooks, they will just steal your money. They offer packs with awesome things for the game but then tell you can’t use them and that it’s their mistake but can’t offer any fixes once the pack has been issued. They keep you running you around in circles saying they are trying to help while they laugh at you in the background saying what an idiot we just got another hundred dollars of out them. You have been warned, they will screw you over any chance they get and then say I’m sorry there’s nothing we can do about it once the sale has gone through, it more like we got your money you idiot stop bugging us.
This game Is good for the people that like to spend money on games
Lies, deceit and just not worth it! 1/5
I have been playing for 7 months now and at first it was great. Now, it seems the devs have abandoned our realm and server. In 7 months we have lost more than 1/2 the players we started with because of how the pay to play set up is. If you spend more, you excel far faster than those that don’t spend. Those big spenders what to put their purchase to use which makes all the smaller, non-spenders a target so any growth from that non or smaller spender is gone. It really is discouraging. It’s a war game but the playing field is completely uneven.
To top it all off though, the devs are blatantly lying to us. They say we will win prizes if we meet a goal then they don’t give us said prizes and lie about not meeting said goal. Currently, I am fighting with them over not being able to use an item out of one of my purchases, being told the feature is not released to my realm yet which is an absolute lie since i have purchased it and use it on my other pack, in the same realm.
I have created a fraud ticket with them to the Apple store. The whole game is a scam! They trick you into buying things and blatantly lie to you about anything they don’t want to deal with. There are several other games out there more worthy of time and money.
I can’t even 1/5
Ok so I downloaded this game because of the ad, where you defend a wall. Yet I opened the game and NOTHING IS THE SAME!! I tried it out because why not but ITS SO FRUSTRATING!!!!! You have to wait for DAYS for your stupid buildings to build!!!! I’m very impatient. 😡😤☕️
With USD$100,000+ to spend on game, you might win 1/5
By G4M3R PR0
The only way to be competitive in the game is by spending tens of thousands of USDs on packs sold in-game. And that won’t guarantee your kingdom won’t be wiped-out by someone who has spent far more money than you on the game. Top players easily spend over USD$100,000– sometimes not even half way through game.
It could have been a great game if they had actually made it a skill-up to win game. As is, it’s pay-to-win, and with other players spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on it, you’ll also need to spend tens of thousands to be competitive.
STOP IT 1/5
I downloaded and deleted this just to make this review. STOP MAKING ADS THAT MAKE ME PLAY YOUR STUPID GAME. It's bad enough that I'm bombarded with ads in every game I play but at least I can just sit there and watch the screen for 30 seconds. But nope, not with yours. I'm playing puzzle games or something and your stupid ad pops up and makes me play this dumb thing and won't go away until I play. So because of your ads I will never in my entire life play this game. I hope everyone else follows and helps eliminate the problem with mobile games and ads
Sadly the poor reviews are correct 1/5
This game started out fun, and even if you’re willing to pay to keep up, or pay much more to get ahead, the developers path, that seems to be driven by pure greed, spoils the game for most.
Support seems to only respond by picking from a list of canned statements and hoping something matches your inquiry. If not repeat. If that doesn’t work blame the sales department and see above. Repeat.
I could go on. But like the title says many of the other poor reviews are correct. If your willing to spend money on a game that entertains try something else you’re feedback is not welcome here.
Be warned by the time you’ve figured this out it will be too late.
STOP Creating Advertisements that won’t let you continue with the game you are playing!!!!! 1/5

Pay to play Terrible Service 1/5
By Terrence Glover
There’s no way this game is rated at a 4, of you look at the first several pages 99% are 1’s. Definitely a pay to play game once you start leveling up. The “packs” they offer you get more expensive the more money you spend, the quality of the $19.99 packs decline significantly, and the $4.99 packs are no where to be found after the initial purchase.
It is tricky to even contact the game makers for assistance, you have to search for contact under “help and support” and no one EVER gets back to you.
The packs are not listed - they showcase 3 to 4 packs and then you have to “search” for them when you click on your gold bar. It’s funny, all of those packs are available for a “limited amount of time”, but when you click on “more” it shows you everything the pack has, and a timer that counts down to ‘0’ and then resets itself as you watch. Nothing unlimited about these $100 packs.
You will never be able to level up on your own- you will have to spend several hundred dollars to stay moderately relevant.
Can No Longer open the game. 1/5
Can No Longer open the game. I’ve been playing this game for over a month. Now, the game crashes every time I try to open it. I’ve contacted the help desk and I’ve received no response. I’ve tried all the usual things: rebooted, erased game and downloaded again Nothing has worked. The game no longer opens on my iPhone.
POOR SERVICE 1/5
Game is all about one thing that’s there bottom line how much cash they can get from you. And if you don’t pay well then don’t play. Even tho there are some events they are far and few between. And the rewards are nothing that you need. Good luck trying to talk to customer service they just pass you off to the next person who sends the same cut and paste email. Or they try to buy your silence with items that you can’t use.
Pay to win pay to play 1/5
I already wrote a review before. Not sure if this one will override the previous one or what.
But its what this reviews title states.
Pay to win pay to play.
I dont get how people can play such a heavy micro transaction game.
Its travian esque is all it has going for it. It constantly bombards your screen with intrusive ads and promotions to buy their junk to play the game better.
By Azure a
Used to be worth playing when they had events on the weekends. Now our server seems to have been forgotten and we have had the same mundane events for months now, and none on the weekends. If you don’t spend thousands of dollars, you won’t get very far. Save yourself some grief and don’t download this game.
Horrible! Can’t give zero stars! 1/5
Lack of content updates for months on end makes the game extremely boring. Defense weighted system makes futile to attack anyone, in a “war” game. They have an event system that is the same events over and over and over, well you get the point. They monetize the game by selling packs, the first one is $5.00, then, $20.00, $50.00 etc, once you get to 100, everything is 100 and I mean everything. The game gets insanely expensive fast. Don’t be suckered into this game! It is not good! It is not fun! It WILL take your money. Did I mention that support in the game is nonexistent and player griefing is common place. Literally picking the extremely little guy is the only thing to do in the game. A lvl 60 attacking a lvl 60 of equal power is pretty much a guaranteed loss for the aggressor.
Wish I could give it 0 stars 1/5
By Pays For It
Bought several packs from $99 and didn’t get the items. Have tried for 3 days to get a hold of them with no success. Stay away unless you would like to have the same experience!!!!
Scam alert!!! Stay Away!!! 1/5
The makers of this game pull you in with a great concept and an ability to grind events. Then they hit you with expensive packs to purchase and events and items that cannot be completed without purchasing said $100 packs in multiple. You don’t purchase packs? No problem. They’ll hit your account with unauthorized charges that you cannot get refunded. This game doesn’t deserve one star.
not good 1/5
terrible game. the worst game. don't play this. it’s a trap. i’m trapped playing bcs i used real money for some things.
Expensive Game $$$$$ 2/5
Unless your willing to pay hundreds of dollars this is not the app for you! Great premise and wonderful game play, but if your not willing to pay hundreds of dollars you don’t stand a chance against other players that do!! Even upgrading is a whole money grab. Some upgrades take up to a year if you don’t spend the cash😱
