Okay game 4/5
It’s kind of disappointing that you have to buy diamonds but overall pretty fun
Trying this game 1/5
By pioneer dude 55t
I liked for a little while but ........
A lot of stuff cost diamonds and when I wanted to get more troops I have to get more building supplies and they don’t give you much diamonds and Diamond cost money to get more too and they only give you like 300 so sometimes you’re stuck in a jam when you can’t get stuff so I hope they change his game and you should think it over before you download it
With shield still plundered 1/5
Doesn’t matter if i have a shield to protect my goods. People still steal goods. Goods I’ve been waiting for 24 hours. After many years of playing I’m done. It’s so Stupid someone can take goods you pay and wait to make.
Great game! 5/5
I have been playing for a few months and my dad got me into this game. The beginning is a bit slow, but as you advance you start to spend hours and hours on it. There is NO need to spend any money and is a great strategy game. The events add something special and I can’t stop. Thank you so much for this great experience. I also love the fact that most guilds are so supportive and there are many friendly people who you can meat everywhere
Not a city building game. 2/5
By Dragon Lover 2,508
This is a war strategy game, not a city building game.
I’ve been playing for over 500 days, have reached the postmodern level and haven’t spent a penny. Although I have enjoyed the game until now, I can say that I think I’m near the end. The problem is the Great Buildings. So many other players, the majority it seems, acquire something called The Arc along with other battle level increasing structures. Then they spend their time plundering you. They have no population. No manufacturing. Just theft and robbery. How do you defeat someone who has a 900% boost in battle. You’re left the bug on their windshield with no recourse. Even a city shield is futile . You can’t acquire more land as all land is controlled by battle or real cash. You can’t barter anymore because all your manufacturing is plundered. The special games the developers run like football are really fun. But the rest of it has stopped being fun because of the blatant theft. This is a great game if you are, or want to teach your kid, to be a bully.
Love it 5/5
By Barry saloon
The game is good the graphics are amazing I never played a game like this one👍
Forge of Empires 1/5
A lot of fun at first but then expanding your city to add buildings to produce supplies that allow you to advance in the game is nearly impossible!! Way too much money needs to be invested and even THEN YOU CAN’T EXPAND YOUR CITY!! Very frustrating!!
Promotes bullying 2/5
Promotes bullying as it allows thieves to steal and attack your city daily for months on end without the ability to block players who spend all of their time targeting other players- developer responded pvp is allowed at all levels of game- being attacked by the same player daily for 3 months and having your city robbed by same isnt pvp - its targeting - 3 Months of targeting by same players is in fact bullying. There are specific areas for pvp in game from map menu but it shouldn't be constant in your own city.- not enough tokens to maintain city shield as the earn rate is low. I used to play daily, not so much anymore because of hostile players. I could understand pvp by people from the same era or lower, but allowing players from higher levels and eras to attack daily for months, reinforces top players to constantly steal from lower level players. That then trains people to harvest from lower levs to progress but makes you hate people you dont even know because they attack you daily. It also prevents lower levels from successfully growing because they are constantly harvested. You cant buy city shields from tavern unless you earn enough credits which is accomplished by getting people to visit your tavern. The rates are high so its not a daily task. I havent explored using diamonds but there have been plenty of reviews on being forced to use diamonds so i wont comment on that since i have spent real cash on diamonds. Bottom line, you will start to dislike people alot because of this game.....i continue to play because I have 2 years invested in this game but it is a frustrating experience.
It Reset me! 1/5
By Justin Fields Trey Sermon
I am so mad right now and tell me how it reset and how to fix and my rating was 5 stars.
THIS GAME IS THE BEST 5/5
All the other civilization building games I play are TERRIBLE, but this one, no, this one made it easier to get the buildings and even does special events! I can’t deny that this one is THE best civilization building game that I have come across.
Best game ever 5/5
By exile elite
You can play at your own time and pace. And develop friendships...always challenges
Long term strategy game 3/5
By Grand High Witch 111
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
Never trust paying this company 1/5
The company put burden of proof on user rather than them checking what they received. Also, you may pay and not receive what you paid for, then again n the burden of proof on the user, not them checking what they’ve collected. It’s a convenient way to cheat users
Vlad the Bloodthirsty 5/5
You can play this game for hours, it is insanely good! I am on 4 years now people. Do I spend money to play? I choose to occasionally. Really this game is worth every penny I chose to spend. Mostly I play for free!! Every thing is easy to learn and I play hours and hours each days. Thanks to the talented designers of FOE.
My favorite game but I need help 5/5
I got this game around may and I am now in the late Middle Ages but my old phone took water damage and now I need help getting my passsword from my old registered acount because I love this game and don’t want to loose all of my progress
Hello I have to say so far it a pretty cool game. I do hope for 2021 players who still play with his push for more content and depth backstory mode.
Loved the game 5/5
I deleted game cause one day I went to play which I was in the end of Iron Age but it started me all over so I sadly deleted the game
Can be fun 4/5
By casual gamer D
A good guild and new friends are the reason to play this game. It is possible for a patient player to never spend a dime and do very well, having fun! Without a good guild, without making new friends and encouragement/help for each other the game grows disappointing fast. Trade is mainly how I play and I have played about 2 years so far. Combat can be fun as well because it is not automatically player vs. player, which I don’t like. When we battle as a guild against other guilds that is often fun. However be warned, this game is populated by real people, and with real people you get nice and jerks.
I like the way they are always seeking to give us new challenges and they do work to correct errors. I don’t like errors and glitches which do plague this game, however they are no worse than most other games I have played.
Too many unnecessary clicks 5/5
The issue described below has been resolved! Thanks so much!
On mobile, you recently introduced ability to collect all bldgs for 5 diamonds. Love it! I would like to see same offered for aiding all friends, guild members, neighborhood. Diamonds paid for each option obviously. If you aid everyone everyday, that’s roughly 200+ daily clicks or taps (assuming max number of friends and guild mates). If you run multiple worlds, that adds up fast. I halve literally quit guilds that require aiding because my hands hurt from all the clicking. I should probably just give up the game, but I love it SO much! Anything you could do to cut down on non strategic clicking would be most appreciated! Even if I have to pay diamonds for it.
Issue described below have been fixed! Thanks!
Another suggestion...tavern visits from Townhall...would be nice if that worked like aiding. Click on a tavern to visit, no pop ups to close, and the icon greys out so you know who’ve you visited that tavern and can’t visit again until eligible. If you really care what that tavern looks like, access from your friends list.
Inside the Townhall, it keeps a list of which players have aided you over the past several days. You can then click a gold star to provide aid to that player in return. Once you have aided a player, Ideally, it should disable the gold star for all future occurrences of that player. But it doesn’t. When you click on the player a second time, it pops up a notification stating that you can’t aid that player right now. You then have to click OK to dismiss the notification. When you do this 50 or 60 times it gets annoying!
Another scenario that arises, you try to aid a player but there’s no Buildings open to be aided. I don’t need to know that I couldn’t aid that player, That player needs to know that I tried. And the game does notify that player that i tried but there was nothing available to be aided. So why bother notifying me and making me dismissed yet another useless notification?
Waste of time 1/5
This game is just a waste of time they everything is a buy or just wait for loooooooonger times just getting rid f this from my system
Good but the game forget my old account for some reason when I wanted to visit it after a long time.
Stupid game. Too slow. 1/5
By Mateo Global
You will be bored immediately.
Worst game ever 1/5
They say free to play but not really. Slow, expensive, and down right bad game.
Good, with one frustration 4/5
It’s a good, chill builder game for long-game enthusiasts. Moves quickly enough that I rarely if ever feel pressured to purchase diamonds (which are used to speed the clock).
One major flaw : Limiting the size/proportion choice for items makes the game unnecessarily frustrating... and may eventually be the single reason to abandon play. (For two reasons)
Reason 1) Not giving players a choice of proportion (ie a 3x5 building isn’t ALSO offered as a 5x3 building) limits creativity, which chips away at ownership of the city being built... which will lead to player abandoning the game early.
Reason 2) The game is dynamic/complex enough that giving the choice (3x5 and 5x3) will only minimally impact the difficulty level of the main game. Further, this minimal impact can also easily be offset by changing some other aspect of the game to keep difficulty where it was in the first place.
Give us the choice. Let us build our cities with a bit more flexibility to make it truly our own... then you’d get 5 stars.
Game play 1/5
By Darrell Radabaugh
This game has nothing to offer. If you don’t wanna spend a crap load of money you won’t get anywhere, even in the early ages.I get emails sent to other players names and shows their email addresses. This game will never be recommended. Worst ever.
Fun game 5/5
By noah likes bees
This game is really fun if you have it keep playing it
Pay to play 2/5
By Booksaremylife 7
The only way to actually advance in game is to pay for diamonds to speed everything up. It takes 3.5 hours to generate 1 troop in the colonial age with the normal troops. If you have a champion retreat or a rogue hideout a full 24 hours. You could use diamonds to speed up, but diamonds are not free. There is absolutely no way to earn them in the game.
To even expand, the land expansions either are rewarded, (you have to pay a large ever increasing amount of gold to get them), using medals to unlock, which increases every time, or good old fashioned diamonds. There is a maximum amount of expansions you can get with medals and rewards.
Without money you don't win 1/5
By Louis Calofornia
It's maddening that you have to be buying diamonds and soldiers in order to advance. I'm very close to leaving and not coming back
I believe this game needs one more thing 4/5
I am always wishing to redo my city but there is never room to move something somewhere else. So I believe there should be something to where if you press on it saves your old city and you are able to make a new city with the same things you had before. If that was on this game then I would love it so much more. Than you for reading.
Same old... 2/5
I don’t care for games that make you sit and wait for resources to build. I
There need to be productive things to do while waiting for resources to build.
I love it so much😍😍😍 5/5
I love it because there is no guns in it and I love war
Great game 5/5
I had a few bugs playing this but so far I’m having loads of fun overall great game
I play this every day it is so FUN!!!!
I can’t find my friends 2/5
By read this ea community
I tried to play with my friends but i can’t finde his name when I search it up pleas fix this so I can friend my friend u could fix this by making it so that I could invite players from other servers into mine
From insult my name
Fun time based game 5/5
Super addictive, be careful!!
Glitches and slow performance 2/5
By Cheeo 3
Simple math boggles the developers minds. I have 21k+ happiness and 15k population. Which one is greater? Obviously it’s the population cause that’s what the game says and it penalizes me for it... idiots
Pure Pay to Play 2/5
By Elder Wyrm
Here’s a cool Christmas Quest, it’s 9 stages and will probably take you 20 days. Cool, you completed it. It will cost you $50 to get the reward.
Here’s a side quest to build a secondary village. You need to develop 8 technologies, and every one will cost you $5 worth of diamonds...
Negotiations 0 effort 2/5
Game is fun but when it comes to having to negotiate a win instead of fighting.. it’s complete randomness. At least make it a puzzle to figure out , seems like there’s no rhyme or reason for it at all except to take your resources
This game ok 4/5
By gaammeer by
This game is overall good it is a little complex but if that’s a problem for anyone than To Bad!
After coming back... no new changes to my phone.. everything is lost. Plus, no special holiday events. Everything takes too much time. Just horrible.
Its fun if you want kill time 5/5
People say their stuff that need fix i havent found any yet 1 when you want buy land u do need dimons unless you attack people and you unlcock them and buy them for coin. Ya its slow when u start but i feel like it gets fatsee more you upgrade because what know i need money and forge to do any thing so i have to just wait
Game is fun but... 3/5
Awesome game I recommend except for the fact that I was offline for thirty days and my city was deleted. Supposedly that system is supposed to keep people from taking names and keeping them but still thirty days! That is way to short and on top of that I tried to get my town back so I submitted a ticket to recover it and they say “We are sorry to hear that. Click here to recover your city” so I clicked it and it brought me back to the submit a ticket tab. I wouldn’t be so mad if I hadn’t spent a year playing this game. Otherwise the game is fun but if you are reading this FoE please recover my city! I worked so hard on it...
Why you should have a his game 5/5
By role v
This is a great game and I hope you like it to it lets you have a city and play hover you want and have your own strategy
Done with it 2/5
By Your kidding right
Played for years. Never spent any money on it. Never will. If you don’t it takes for ever to get any where. Doesn’t matter anyway, you defense is never good enough. Same people just plunder over and over again, never can stop them. My defense is crushed, and maybe half of one of the opponents will get depleted. Not going to spend crazy amounts of money on a game I play on my iPad.
Name change 5/5
I wish the name could be changed at least once
I love this game
Having fun s far.
Banned me after taking my money 1/5
I had been playing this game for some time without issues, and I spent a lot money to buy the in-game currency (diamonds). Then suddenly this morning, I was “banned” for having multiple accounts in the same world! I barely have time to play with one account, what will I do with multiple accounts? I tried appealing, but they refused to reconsider.
This a good game, but I strongly urge you not to spend any money. You don’t know when you will be banned on some made-up excuse. Please consider other games that treat their customers better.
