Worst gaming company ever 1/5
Honestly I don’t know how anyone can rate this game higher than a 1, maybe paid reviews from company to boost ratings? I’ve played for over 6 months and paid in close to $1000 to grow my account, and yes it takes that kind of money to even compete at all in this game! For that kind of cash you would think you would get great gameplay and support, but sadly that is not the case. There are constant problems with lag and dropped connections. When you write to support you get pre-written boilerplate responses that say it is the player’s equipment and internet service that is the problem, even when your entire international clan is having the exact same problem. Bottom line, don’t play this game unless you want to spend big money for even bigger disappointment! Shame on Plarium and shame on you if you support them.
Case in point, even the developers response below is a canned reply to several other bad reviews!
Better than clash of clans 5/5
I used to think that nothing was better than clash of clans but
is the best rpg(kindaa??)
Customer support 1/5
I have been playing this game for many years now and the shield drops when they are not proper do not get any help from the support team I’ve emailed back-and-forth multiple times for this occasion I have spent a lot of moneyAnd whenever I contact about an issue I get generic responses and nothing has ever been resolved I am considering ending my gameplay Because of these issues when you have a shield drop and lose all your troops and resources you’re forced to spend more money to rebuild them because their support team does not help
Responses from plarium 4/5
I agree with Joshua. Plariums responses are generic and they always ask you to send a picture showing what the problem is rather than take your word for it, or actually check into the issue. They do lose a lot of players by being lazy and not looking into it. For instance, the first 2 categories in the clan wars - 1. Enemies killed in offense, 2. Enemies killed in defense. The two cancel each other. I really think they didn’t think those 2 through at all. They said they would fix issues by the 1st of this year 2020. I guess that one escaped them. However they don’t hesitate to take your $. All the players ask is for plarium to give us our $’s worth.
I hope everyone playing these games enjoy them, they can be fun, but the big boys do get the favors. Have a great year fans.
Love or Hate It 3/5
I’ve been playing this game for 2+ years. It’s been fun and I have been very lucky to be part of a great clan. I’ve maxed almost everything (buildings, knowledge, etc), but it was very expensive.
What ultimately killed the game for me was a large clan relocating to my kingdom. My clan had fought hard for years to be on top in our kingdom. Suddenly, out of nowhere, this other clan arrives to start bullying and takes over. Apparently, they had been bullied by a larger clan, so they in turn found ours ripe for dominating and ruining the game.
Big spenders are cash cows for developers like Plarium. Those who repeatedly violate their “terms” agreement can get away with absolutely anything over and over. Extreme misogynist? $$$ Go ahead, threaten and degrade! Mega-homophobe? $$$ Have at ‘em, intimidate and threaten!
After two extreme instances like this, with multiple people reporting this big spender, Plarium finally sent me a copy of their “terms.” Apparently, I was being dared to find a violation. Doing so took less than a minute. I highlighting the section which *should* clearly apply to threats to women and gay people. After a couple days, they claimed to have “dealt with it according to our terms.” And yet, that big spender carries on in the game. Presumably, you are allowed “warnings” in a number proportional to your spending. The top ten spenders are probably allowed a couple of actual murders before being banned.
Regardless of what your problem is, Plarium’s “support” is beyond horrible. Almost every question/comment gets a really generic canned responses. Even this review will get a “we understand” reply, but I assure you they don’t understand or care. If you are really, really rude and keep responding to their generic answers, you will eventually receive more appropriate responses. But even those are generally vague and empty promises.
Anyway, it’s been fun, but I’m walking away from my huge and expensive account to go into rehab. I hope to be able to afford to eat and pay my real bills in a few months.
Playing This Game 5/5
This game is really fun and I enjoy it. I suggest for more people to play this game it’s really fun and honestly has good graphics this is on my opinion on how people should play this game more often
Amazing customer service 5/5
I thought the game was just like every other game at first. The difference with this game and the others is great customer service. I had a problem with not being able to participate in an event, I contacted them and they responded generally fast. They didn’t waste any time or drag out the conversation, they solved the problem quick providing me with all of the information I needed. Not just that, they were EXTREMELY well mannered and nice
Good game 5/5
I’ve been playing this game for about 2.5 years. There are lots of similar games I like this one but I like this one.
A few tips for noobs
There is no soloing it. If there was it would not have war of clans in the name.
There is normally one good clan per server. It ends up that way by merges and best for the server type deals.
Its normally a few big players getting most of the points which is why it’s important to be part of the one clan on the server.
Buying a got it’s limits
Build times, training times, learn times get long. You don’t wait for most of them, instead you participate in events use the gold you EARN to keep u safe and the boosters you EARN to finish structure and learning.
I’ve got 2 complaints.
One they have no way to deal with in actives In a server and don’t add new players once it’s full. I was shocked to find my server had over 40k players. There are less than 200 people on the server that play and there’s even less that play regularly. BOOT THE LOW LEVELS AND FILL THE SERVERS YOU HAVE. YOU HAVE ABOUT 800 WHY ARE YOU MAKING MORE.the game barely starts at level 20 kick players and add players to the servers you got. Server population only goes down.and two there’s boats on the pc load screen there’s boats in the ads. Vikings use boats. So why are there NO BOATS. Add naval something, make it an army for a clan. Make towns build boats and send them on raids like you send people into the wasteland in fallout shelter. I don’t care how you add them but this game could definitely use them.
Bugs, lag and horrid support team 1/5
This is a pay to win game and it can be fun when you spend the money. However, I spent a lot of money on the game the last few months, and certain bugs caused me to lose potential rewards and loss of troops which directly correlates to wasted money. My clan mates who been playing for years are dropping like flies due to these issues and the support team inability to address them properly. We only get canned automated responses. I have two tickets open with them, if they don’t provide some kind of resolution or compensation l they’re going to lose another player.
New Building 5/5
I think that you (the developers) should add a building in which you can upgrade to be able to build and upgrade more than one building.
Money driven 1/5
This game can be fun if the Plaruim company can test the new updates out first before releasing it. People spend lots of money in this game to enjoy themselves in this game. When the game is not working properly and we complain about it, the company don’t take responsibility for the mishap.
It’s like going to a movies. You buy hotdog, popcorn and a drink before going to the screen room. The movie starts and 10 minutes into the movies the projector keeps glitching. Plaruim talks to everyone in the movie theater and tell them that it’s a schedule maintenance issue and have to shut down the theater. Once the plaruim resolve the issue, plaruim open its doors again and gives out 3 miniature snicker candies out to people for a schedule maintenance everytime the projector decide not to work.
So do you wait outside the movie theater with your hotdog, popcorn and drink? Or do you a refund or get complementary tickets?
Plaruim takes in hundred thousands of dollars every time they release a new updates, holiday packs. So why can’t you fix the game system and make it properly. Also it’s helpful if Plaruim does the right thing gives back/rewards to their loyal gamers when the system is not working properly. It’s puts ownership on them.. Not no 100-3hr boost, 10- 500 shaman juice and 10-1000 memory points...
good game to chill with during downtime 5/5
It’s a good game that involves strategy and it’s fun to see your kingdom grow over time. Generally, you don’t need to spend real money to win in this game unlike other pay to win games on the App Store.
Poor customer experience 1/5
By Asian Dragon99
Plarium does not care about you or your issues. They only care about figuring out new ways to take your money.
If you have a problem they will send a generic response and never get back to you. Their terms of service is completely one sides and they hide behind it when their issues cause you to lose resources or other things.
The game is set up so you have to increasingly purchase packs to stay competitive. Stay away from this game.
Re-skinned game 1/5
This is the same game this company owns as many others re-skinned cash grab trying to steal money from people will not keep playing this garbage fire
Many Issues 1/5
This game used to be fun but now is just frustrating. Plarium’s response is always the same, “It’s your device!” If it were possible I wouldn’t even give it one star. Unless you like wasting money for a game that is impossible to play, don’t waste your time!
Good and Bad 3/5
By Nakoki 120
There are many good and bad things in this game
Generaly this game is awesome never played a game like this and I love it
But to be honest it has many issues and problems like lags and bugs they are ruining the game and the service in this game is very bad, if you drop your shield and get a blue circle well you will almost always get zeroed and plarium won't do anything about it and not compensate which it should do cuz its their problem and not players'
And its expensive the good packs are very expensive if you wait 2 months without buying anything the best packs are 19.99$ which is still expensive for some people and the ones that cost 4.99$ are not worth even looking at
The game gives more advantage to high level players like in Jutenheim if you are not in Top 10 dont bother relocating their, there should be a throne for each league not only one throne for everyone thats not fair at all
And there are some things in the game you can't play without like Charms,Boosts, Hero and shamn energy and Resources and they are hard to get if you dont buy packs but still obtainable, other thing you need like drakkers, VIP points and Hero keys they are almost impossible to get without packs
At the end the game is very fun but if you don't want to spend on it it will be a very hard one and you will probably quit at some point
Love the game 4/5
I really do enjoy playing the game! I’ve only ran across 2 issues
1. When I play on Android, the typing area in chat is whacked!!!!! Auto correct adds and adds and adds words so you have to constantly backspace to fix words 😩
2. I recently acquired a iPhone iOS 12 and the game constantly crashes 😩
If I can ever play on my iPhone without crashing, I’ll come back and give the game a 5 ⭐️
Recently I’ve been having problem with the game crashing every time I open the map. Other than that it’s a great game. User name Rulfar
Bad Customer Service 1/5
Plarium is the worst I have encountered for customer service. I have had multiple technical issues which have cost me several hundred dollars in recovery costs. All I have ever gotten from Plarium are platitudes and excuses. Never an offer to recover lost costs. Never a solution of any kind. Skip all Plarium games and do something else with your time.
To many issues to list 1/5
By 1 tempest
As long time player (over 3 years) I can not recommend this game to anyone!!! The companies greed has grown out of all proportion to any fun in the game at all. If you are a new player it will cost you $5000.00 just to be competitive. Unless you have an unlimited budget and a high tolerance for crappie support, do your self a favor and give this game a pass!
Delays abundance. 4/5
By Headache Harry
Constant delays and technical difficulties.
They are honestly working to fix issues and communicate with the gamers. A for the effort at least.
Dear Plarium, 5/5
By fred llama
Got nothing wrong with the game just wanna know if you could make the game more 3D
So I haven’t played yet but I live Vikings and this game looks amazing keep up the good work the reviews look good too
Worthless money pit 1/5
This game is ridiculously expensive and not worth playing. You can buy all the gaming consoles and all the games and will still be cheaper than this game. Items take over a year to upgrade is insane!
Lie cheat and steal 1/5
This game is horrid do not, I repeat do not download this game... customer service is non existent
When you purchase stuff you’re not guaranteed to get it, this game is pretty much the equivalent of being ski masked in the middle of day.... as far as gameplay goes I believe some of the Devs play and they cheat as well you would literally have to spend 10 thousand dollars to keep up and that's if you get your stuff, final thought do not download this game
This game gets a 0 on a scale of 0 to 10 from me
Vikings review 4/5
Very good structure love it!
Unstable Money Pit 1/5
This game is fun, it’s addictive in a way...BUT...in the end it’s a money pit. It says you can play for free...that is true for a very short time, but then you can’t really get anywhere without spending money...and lots of ii...we’re talking thousands of you want to be competitive. Updates on building and knowledge will take months if free playing, lol, and who wants to wait around for that? The game is very unstable, servers cannot handle player load during events, shields drop, things disappear and customer service will respond with a generic message every time. My clan could write a book with them...90% of the time saying it’s our devices at fault. It’s not.
Our clan is top in our kingdom so we play all events and win 99% them so we have boosts, gold, etc. Research shows this has been going on all the way back to 2017 with no real improvement.
Do yourself and your wallet a favor and pass on this game. I wish I had.
Login issue 3/5
I linked a account with a iCloud then they changed to only Game Center and Facebook and that mess up my account.
Customer service 1/5
By Un-trimmed slayer
Unless you can physically prove an error existed, do to lag or game interruption.... to a fault of developer your not going to get very far
From the basis of free to play your customer service is automatic messeges that result in “game works fine clear your cache” especally when 200 players in single server saying same thing.... iso, google, or pc... clear your cache works fine
Bugs occur that drop your protection sheild followinf update
Ẽample 8week timer on your sheild applied.... could log in tommrow and be without it because game drops this..
There is no refund aspect.
If your looking at a time killer game avoid it... dont do it...save yourself the headache and run now
it was fun for about 5 years now, and players vary through the game...
I enjoyed this entertainment value for awhile, they arent running a platform for repeated bussiness and im sure itunes traffic regarding their games customer service is in heavy flow
Recap: if you havent started find a differnt game, save yourself the time, headache, and money in this
Its not free to play... its a spend to win game... but even then your at mercy of bad servers, bad customer service, and terriable lags (constant for a month now) where you cant even log into game via wifi, 4g, pc, facebook, or google play...
Wish you all luck!!! But as for this game its not worth it
Beware it’s unplayable once they hook you 1/5
Maybe new players in new kingdoms can play without glitches. But for us seasoned players in older kingdoms, the game has become completely unplayable-continuous blue circles with every button pushed. So this will happen to you too eventually - you will sink money into a game you won’t be able to play.
This company is now taking people’s money and not delivering the service they promised. And guess what - they say it is their right to do this because they forced you to sign their Terms of Service where they say they are allowed to have glitches and errors. So once you invest $$$, you have a choice to either quit and forget about that investment or play the lowest quality game around, period. Save your money and time - choose something else, unless Plarium renews their commitment to make the game playable again.
Game crashes on iphone 5 2/5
This used to be a stable game but after there new updates the game keeps crashing on my iphone 5. Contacted plarium and they told me to get a new phone!!
Game ever 5/5
By funniest gam
This game is so much fun and I just started to play it yesterday and I am level 8J really hope you enjoy it
Losing issues 1/5
By Babies everywhere.
I have not been able to get on the game since about 12 hours ago and yes I know there will be a generic response of I’m sorry you’re having these issues and did you try deleting and reloading the game (to which you will find you have to contact them to get your actual acct back) or yadda yadda about contacting them through email, no thanks, Fox you’re issues and stop adding more money hungry spending ways to keep playing the game you greedy little money suckers
Fun game with a few issues 3/5
4 star’s would be 5 if they didn’t have some unexplainable issues. I recently changed my rating from 1 to 3 bcuz Plarium’s customer support did finally return some missing gold. The game still has some kinks that need to be worked out like what’s causing everyone’s items and gold to disappear. It may be hackers it may be a bug idk but in the end Plarium took care of the issue. Very fun game when everything runs smooth though.
Items go Poof... 2/5
Seriously, just disappear! Items, gold, time boosts. Many times a blue circle will appear and then when you are able to get back online many items will be gone. Time boosts for warring are supposed to last 10 min for the big ones. They will disappear within 8 minutes or less. Don’t bother reporting it to the developers, somehow it will be your fault. They have many reasons it’s your fault, it might be your connection.. (yes, I did say that, it’s amazing that the same “connection” issue seems to happen to people all over the world.. sometimes, at the same time). Your items or gold must disappear because of something YOU did. Maybe you decided to purchase coffers with your gold when you already have over 700k coffers of the same kind. (Makes zero sense, right). It’s almost as if they don’t even read what you are saying and this is if you’re lucky enough to get a real response from an actual person instead of an automated one. As a business owner myself, I would expect better customer service from a place that is literally making enough money off the players to buy their own islands, if they chose too.
Now, to be fair, I have played this game for a few years. I have spent real money and I have been frustrated over the many “hacks or glitch” issues. I have seen shields drop before they are supposed to, items disappear, gold vanish, It’s hard to walk away from a game you’ve put thousands of dollars into, but I may just have to do that. You get pulled in and think you are having fun. Then, another “update” comes out and you have MORE/different materials needed to advance to yet another level. So, you end up dropping more money to keep up with the rest of the game. If Plarium isn’t careful, all they will have left are the people with the 300b plus influence that only have one another to fight,(which they won’t, because they cannot beat one another) but they will have the thousands of abandoned buildings from people that have given up to continue attacking, but at some point even the big accounts will walk away. Maybe then plarium will pay attention to people.
Below, you will see a response from the developers asking for more information or proof, they may even pretend to be concerned. The truth is that they are not concerned and do not care. They may tell me to get with my clan and discuss strategy and other ways to build. The issue is that it’s all smoke and mirrors. The real issues are the game lagging, your items and gold disappearing, the servers not being able to accommodate the many people around the world AND the developers ignoring the people that help them create this game.
I have seen all the reviews and everyone is right. There are issues with the game plarium has bad customer service and sends generic responses and never really addresses your issue. I have had shields drop early and loose everything or I have bought a pack and never got it but still spent the money for it. There are so many things you can complain about and never get a resolution but I’ll say this I do love the game. Just play smart and learn from others. It is what it is so either play or don’t but there are a lot of issues and I’ve seen so many big players quit. From a business perspective I would think you would do things to keep those players, in the end they are the ones that spend money and when they quit that’s less money for plarium. Oh well nothing will ever change unless we are treated like a real person. Any time you spend money with a company and you are not satisfied with service or the product usually that company does the right thing.
It downloaded itself! 1/5
I did not download this game and I did not want to! I opened my phone this morning and it was there! I am deleting it.
Warning, read this 1st 1/5
I was really enjoying the game but for some reason my shield dropped overnight ( had 2 days left in it mind you ), I was ransacked within a 2 minute timespan by the same 2 people. I’m talking hundreds of attacks, took billions of resources. They had less influence than myself and billons of resources taken from other players and I had several hundred thousand troops ( more than it said they produced when you look at their profiles ) at home yet lost every attack. I truly believe there is either a bug or hack floating around and these players know how to exploit it. Don’t play this game and for God’s sake if you do don’t buy anything you are just feeding the exploiters.
Lost interest 1/5
By That Littul girl
I’ve been playing this game for about 2 years. I loved befriending people all around the world and working with them to beat these events. They have updated it so much since I’ve started playing that I’ve lost interest. With all the updates they have done, you can just throw money into the game and win it for your clan, which means, if you got money, you will win every time. When I play a game, I want to ACTUALLY PLAY the game. Many times, my clan would be working their butts off to win this event and then last minute, they would buy all these packs and we would lose. After this happening over and over again, you don’t even wanna try because most of them are spenders. Every time you buy a pack, the packs next time offered become more expensive. In order for people who aren’t well off to spend money in the game to get a really good pack that doesn’t cost a lot, you have to wait for the mega packs (which you can get after not spending anything on the game for 2 MONTHS!!).
Genuinely addicting and engaging 5/5
I can not believe the life this game has. It’s a world of its own. I have made close friends, learned immensely, and kicked Viking tail in the process. I highly recommend this game for those who have a stubborn will and plenty of ferocious energy. I play to escape reality and vanish into a never ending world of excitement and I am so much more crazy in this game than in reality. Don’t tell my clan I said so. 💋❤️. I TRULY love this game and all its intricate layers. Thank you Plarium. (You know me as Lorilikes)
Good game 5/5
By Perez Efrain
Great amazing fantastic terrific all around good game. Thanks
It’s a fun game 5/5
I really like it I’m also level 9 I think and I’m just enjoying it Because of how realistic it looks! 👍👍 10/10
I’d give this game zero stars if I could. It is a pay to play game. If you don’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of $ don’t bother downloading.
My game keeps crashing 1/5
I have not been able to play for two months now so please fix it or I will have to delete the app
Mista GG is the reason I got this game.
It’s alright, pretty fun.
Kinda like more detailed age of mythology without the ages.
Heroin is cheaper 2/5
If you love repetitive, mindless tasks and paying out the butt to do them, then this is the game for you! Much of the game model is a Skinner’s Box (tasks, yielding or producing resources, upgrades). The value of the in-game currencies suffer from ever growing inflation, so you feel like you’re getting a steal each time you pay $20 for imaginary goods. Then suddenly you realize you’ve spent thousands of dollars just to be a small fish next the suckers who’ve spent 10 times more than you. There’s always a bigger fish...
New upgrade is a game changer for worse 1/5
By Guatty poo
Have played for two years and loved the game. New upgrade allows level 4 Strongholds to get attacked by BOTs. CVC & KVK’s are now ruined since BOT attacks decide who wins. Very little player interaction last few events with these changes. Players are upset and many talking about leaving game if things don’t change. Stronghold attacks would be fine - but not by BOTs
