Money pit 1/5
This game is all about money, the packages are way over priced, save your cash, go play cod or fortnight, I’ve been playing since world 5 opened up. Wasted to much money , and I have nothing to show for it !
Was a really fun game 2/3 years ago. It's been dying a slow death since. A bunch of die hards play in the older worlds new worlds and game in general is all about $$$. If you don't spend, a lot, you can't really play. It's been fun, but no more.
Dedicated player 3/5
By Contact Beechy
Game is highly addicting. Meet wonderful people from all over the world. Too bad it freezes up and lags badly. Not worth the time or effort.
Good war game 5/5
This war game is thrilling because when you think you know it all, you still find things you did not know. It is a game that can be played using not only within game skills but personal skills as well; example is patience, wait till your enemy thinks you are gone, then pounce.
Good, Bad & Ugly 1/5
Good- the game is fun and addictive
Bad - the game requires in-app purchased if you want to achieve some sort of success. Also your success builds upon itself and are time limited.
Ugly - Be prepared, this game crashes a lot! Typically during crucial events. The maker of the game VERY RARELY accepts fault. When their server failed, i believe they blamed the maker of the server not their management of the server. When software crashes in the middle of a timed event, its your responsibility to know to log off and log on repeatedly. if the software crashes right after an update has been pushed, again not their fault. If an error causes two months of successes to be, well just below average, its your fault as well.
In the event that there is a crash that they just can't slide past, here is what they do: we will refund a very small amount of "gold" "resources" for what was used in the last 24 hours. but you spent your gold and resources 168 hours ago to get ready for the event.....
get the picture? Fun when it works, You got to spend along the way, it Crashes when you are about to have success.
Even Uglier - Itunes has advised me that in-App purchases are "at your own risk". I have had a couple of refunds. I have also had the documentation to show that it wasnt my fault.
I think Itunes is tired of the Ugly too .....
Not to much different than before. Notice that all the responses from the vendor are the same. Yip. That’s how the game goes. Ugly
Opening screen says Update game to 5.3.5. I click ok and it takes me to App Store, which shows latest version to be 5.3.0. So, I open App Store and don’t see an available update.
Whether it’s Gree or RockYou, the developers and server geeks make this game a joke.
It’s a fun game. I WILL NOT spend my real money for virtual items, so I’m always WAAAAAY behind on comms and upgrades.
Come on RY, get it straight. By the way, I also play Final Fantasy XV. They give AWESOME prizes...including tons of free gold. By the thousands, they give away gold. Gree/RockYou could learn a few things from them.
It’s ok 4/5
By Hillbilly trucker Illinois
This used to be a real fun game. It would be better if they were able to merge some of the worlds to bring more players in. Still fun but have some complaints. Need to Advertise this game more to add more players.
Support and updates destroyed this game 1/5
By Hansuke W40
Support takes days to get back to you, so basically pointless because you lose days of gameplay waiting. Updates never go smoothly and always stop you from logging in after the mandatory update is installed.
Gameplay itself is fun but anyone who pumps money into the game (coiners), ruins it. No way to compete with someone who has spent hundreds of dollars upgrading their account. A basic upgrade is $20-100. This is no where near a fair amount to upgrade an account also.
This is a long term strategy game and play can be intense but unfortunately most do not understand the correct way to play. They throw money at the game instead of using strategy to overcome their opponents.
To sum it up; don’t download unless you plan to spend $100 plus for a game that won’t be around for long if support isn’t better managed.
New Update 1/5
By Mom o'five
Will not let me login, says I need to update. No update available in APP store as I already have latest upgrade. Meanwhile in the hall of injustice, an event rages and and nice I can’t log in my pixels are already likely slaughtered after putting up a brave fight. I could submit a trouble ticket and after 3-15 days I will get a response if we are sorry for the trouble; however, we see nothing wrong. Please submit a trouble ticket ( and waste more of your time) and we will continue to be unable to find any issue.....
Ps I tried to give it a half star rating, 1 star is the lowest acceptable rating.
Endless Update 2/5
The program keeps requiring me to update to v. 5.3. No such update is available from the App Store, so the program never opens.
This game is really bad 1/5
I played it for 2 years. Now the game is nothing but racket, trying to squeeze money out of players. If you do not spend a lot, you have no chance.
Every day is a drag... 3/5
By Spreken the dutche
Your durn servers are terrible... get it together.
Used to be good not anymore 1/5
By Iorn man 77
This game was fun to play not anymore its all about who can spend the most money to get ahead to win everyone else who wont pay to play a free game gets nowhere and constantly loses not to mention the constant attacks farming and wiping out of troops and everything you have by bigger rich paying cheaters and paying is cheating it gives the rich players a very unfair advantage over all other players all players that dont cheat need automatic bubbles when not on the game wake up lazy rock you and protect your players or soon you wont have any one playing but a very few paying cheaters equals no more game for you then maby rock you might have to get real jobs actualy working and not scamming people to pay for playing a free game and by the way its fals advertising if anyone is paying anything to play your game then ITS NOT FREE I would strongly suggest that no one plays this game unless they have milloins of dollars to waste o and this game constantly disconects freezes up and has really bad lag time that they cant ever seem to fix now for several years now not to mention the will ban and stop you from chating with other players if they dont like what you say thats a clear violation of freedom of speech no person or company has the right to violate that no matter who they think they are i would strongly recomend that no one play this comunist owned broken game
ZERO customer support 1/5
By JESUS W40
The game is ok, the game play and server performance is HORRIBLE. lately the game has suffered greatly during events. People like myself have spent money and in return we get ungrateful customer service who won’t return accidental purchases or missing items, or who don’t know how to value paying customers or anyone for that matter. They have reps emailing you but might as well be automated systems. They reply like they’re robots. and they have no clue how the game is played or how it works. You have to explain in full detail countless times till they get your problem and in the end all pointless because they give you a stupid response like “sorry commander, unfortunately, we can’t help you” but please continue playing our game and spending your hard earned money. Same events for years now w the exception of one “global conquest” and it would be a nice event if it actually worked 😂 this company Rock You is a joke! they had a server break down and because of it, I lost my units, and units that I spent resources (resources that I acquired with real money) to be able to keep. Well when I lost those units, I emailed to get them back and they would do it. 10-15 emails later I gave up. Thanks for nothing rock you!
Glitches galore 2/5
Glitches every other week. Destroying game. Got rid of free gold videos making this a game u MUST spend money on if u want to do well at all.
Easy improvements to make with offering better comms for free. Currently offering comms in Ltms that are over a year old and of no use to active players. Fix your chit RY please.
Game is garbage unless you spend money. Doesn’t give the lower level players a chance.
Not worth download 1/5
If I could give a 0 star I would...that’s how horrible this game is becoming
Open up the worlds 1/5
Open up the worlds some worlds are just unplayable most don’t even have active players so your pretty much playing with yourself.😢😡
Can’t Connect as Usual 1/5
Don’t spend your cash on this glitchy game. I’m writing this review while WiFi internet access is working just fine but ongoing connection issues prevail as I write. There are so many things wrong with this game, least of which is I can’t login and play. With all the financial investment made by WoN players with only ROIC expected being access and fun, it’s no less than robbery that RockYou can’t do the fundamentals to keep this game running.
UPDATE ... WoN still having operational issues where players can’t connect. RockYou isn’t rocking any War of Nations players today. My hope is that ITunes just drops this vendor and they’re games out of the iTunes app offerings.
ANOTHER UPDATE ... the game will not connect and run. This isn’t an Apple IOS update issue because my other apps all adjust operation and functionality with Apple updates. This is a RockYou War of Nations issue and the net result is you could spend time and money on this stale and inoperable game and then get frustrated because you can’t connect. I’m writing this review while connected to the internet via WiFi but this game “can’t connect.” DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME PLAYING WoN.
Game crashes 2/5
Game crashes seem to be a regular event now! Almost every other week game is down for hours like now , I’ve spent money on this game and I’m ready to quit like a lot of players.the compensation for such crashes is a useless crate that gives you only a couple things actually useable by most players unless big spenders
Worst support ever! Waste of money and time! 1/5
By gree was better
I like won likes it a lot more years ago when you could actually play and be competitive for free now not so much they even have spend gold missions!
They want you to spend your cold hard earned cash with them on this game but it seems every weekend the game crashes and you can’t even log in and play!
The developer has horrible customer service closing out tickets without doing anything to fix the problem!
Best advise I have for anyone wanting to play this game is move along it’s not worth playing anymore!!
Connectivity issues 3/5
By Make it beter
I've been having immense trouble connecting. I don't know if it's something to do with the servers or something On my end
Poor customer support and game interface 1/5
Takes days for customer support to respond, poor server maintenance causing game to crash on key events, severe delays in game event rewards distribution. MORE UPDATES must be made to make game more stable. Today, I’m trying to reinstall game in my device to hopefully rid of “game reconnection issues”. Playing the game has become more cumbersome.
Never involve this kind game 1/5
By Daydayup daydaycrazy
I have been playing this game years. Keep suffering years from beginning.
Till recently I found it why?
Frankly I spent a lot of money in this game, it is no doubt if it necessary for some kind regular updated, actually I was set up by this game. I spend too much so that I can't quit even.
There are so many sign to show there are kind of group, called insiders, they always stronger than you, as if other players is like transparent for them, once you log in, they start their showtime, they will attack you, whatever, they take all advantage of ways to force you or hint you buy all kind of stuff in game.
The most desperate things is that they can isolated one of player till you can't play anymore.
I am very disappointed this game but it is too late. Basically I spent ton of money for getting nothing. All are setups, fewer real player.
Sorry about these but this is all my bad experience.
Best game ever.! 5/5
Me and my brother are among the oldest players in w21. We have invested lots of money on this game and my brother was a far stronger and active player. But now its been over a year my brother has been chat banned.! He tried everything he can to contact you guys and get it corrected but somehow it hasn’t worked. He can’t even write a review here for some reason.This is a war game where you might have few incidents involving bad chats. Besides anyone can report you out of anger or jealousy . But since he has invested lots of his money here and he wants to play the game still i think you guys need to give this a series consideration. Pls help him. His Id is DnR Pete. Lvl 55 w21. Thanks
Do not waste your time or money 1/5
They can’t keep the servers stable but worry about putting snow on the map. Good job. Game is no longer about skill or even teamwork. It’s just pay to win the same event every week. Also the automated responses here and in “support” are a joke.
They will also chat ban you with no explanation and you have no way to appeal so have fun being constantly banned because sore losers report you all the time.
The game is garbage. Don’t bother with the auto response to this review either, I’ve had enough talks with your “development” teams. Nothing will change.
I play in the top team in world Realtra for the past 5 hours no one in the world can get into there game I hope there is a gift for all of us that have had a problem today please fix this
Several years ago the game was fun. Many players & alliances. Game events were tiered so small players could improve. Now, it's all about who spends the most. Constantly new commanders & same old events repeat. Players leaving rapidly. World 23 is down to a handful & only 4 significant alliances. No way smaller players can gain strength & compete unless you are willing to spend a lot.
Changes and improvements needed 3/5
By HzTs Terror
Here’s the thing, you guys have a good idea but are not perfecting it. There are some things that would enhance gameplay and improve a persons perspective and satisfaction on this game.
I have read through a lot of reviews and most of them are basically saying there all about the money and support is crappy. I haven’t had to use support yet but I do agree on the money part. The game does become reliant on money later on. I know you need money to help this game and others that you are making/improving but the cost for items in the gold store are way to high, it takes most of your starting gold to buy anything useful. Then if you want to make faster or better progress you need to buy more. I would say either give more gold or make the price lower.
Now there are some things that would improve the meaning of alliances and gameplay. For instance, you only have a “Outpost Teleport.” That limits your “Homebase” only and not your “Outposts.” If you could add a “Homebase Teleport” that would help alliances join together and reinforce each other both offensively and defensively. Say you don’t like the area you are in (maybe a player keeps attacking you) or one of your objectives say you need to take out 2-8+ renegade outposts and you need to get closer. That’s where your outpost teleports come in, but once those objectives say you gotta attack higher level outposts. Instead of leaving your outpost unsecured when you teleport (like if it’s a really hard base to beat) and attack with all your troops, that leaves your outpost vulnerable to a nearby player. This has been a problem in a couple games and it’s a great way to lose your resources. Let’s say that you are able to bring your main base to that area. Within a short notice you can send reinforcements to your outpost and defend. This could add an aspect to the game and could provide strategy to your attacks during this period. It could also add an interesting side to alliance wars (not the Global Domination)
Speed ups are early on hard to get once you get through the first rush of objectives and you use all of them. The store over prices them and it doesn’t help that you can only request help from your alliance every six hours. In my opinion, you shouldn’t have a help cool down but I do see the reason why it’s there. The way you do it is that you can send help in the form of a message. If people kept sending help messages it would overwhelm the chat. That’s why you should add a different way to send help and help other alliance members. Like the way the help is in Invasion and Game of War: Fire age. It’s an icon that leads to a screen of things that people need help with and you can press a button to help. This would give you a reason for there not to be a help cool down and would give newer players a chance to grow faster.
You are on the right track but just some things could be changed and added. Please take the time if at all possible to implement any of these features. It would help the game a lot. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
War of Nations Review 1/5
I'm quitting this game! I don't recall how much I've spent money wise. But over time a lot! There are many other games you can play much cheaper. They have attempted to up grade, however by the time you save enough to get the required Commander the items you saved are worthless because the Commander is no more. It also takes to long to get you Commander upgrades. I've enjoyed building friendships with other players but in the end it's just a game! I'll be turning my bases over to those who are willing to spend their fortunes on nothing!
By Cristian yensen
No, descargar, en si ya es una pérdida de tiempo, gráficos horribles, animaciones pobres, no vale la pena
Attack Spam 5/5
This is very short but please consider this idea. Have you ever been attacked over and over again by the same player? My bases keep getting attacked. After a lot of attacks can you automatically put immunity from that player or be immune for 24 hours?
The Fin 2/5
I have played the game a awhile ago and it was fun but the problem was support didn’t help and it turned into a game where you had to use money to get anywhere in the game
Don’t start 2/5
Don’t play until they release a new world.
We need no more commanders and warcoms 1/5
The company spends to much time coming up with new commanders and warcoms. This in turn forces you if you want to be on top to spend, speed and speed. They have not done anything new with alliance base and nothing new with satcom. Along with new commanders come new materials that leave low end players out in the cold. The game should be rolled back to it’s original version. No 99’s and no home base attacking.
Lock out 1/5
Your update just lucked me out. Thanks what bs
When ever I update the app it says to update the app even though I just did
Constant issues 1/5
By Darth Bizzallz
Game constantly lags.. since rock you took over it’s been a down hill experience
Beware - very expensive, often broken 1/5
To be successful in this game, you will need to spend A LOT of money to defend against the top players. It's hardly a game when you can easily purchase your way to the top. The game is simple - the person who spends the most money wins. Customer service & support is terrible.
Today, the game won’t even open, says a new version 5.11 needs update. Follow link to App Store, & I have the current version, there’s no update option; even after reboot. It is impossible to login or update, meanwhile your likely taking a beating from others who may be logged in & you are defenseless. I probably missed an option to pay $ to have reliable access to the game - it’s how they make money. Stay away unless you have lots $ to be competitive!
Can’t upgrade 5/5
By Aha as
The App Store doesn’t give me the option to download the new version. I even turn off and on my phone and still don’t see the upgrade. I really need to get in.
By Frankste the king
Addictive game, but it’s the SAME exact weekly schedule with the same rewards. They won’t change the limited rewards even. There is a HORRIBLE LAG issue. Some days worse than others. Who cares about realistic, they get rid of good events and repeat the boring ones. Sadly this game will not be around too much longer with how everything is managed.
Highly recommend WON! 5/5
I have played WON for a while now. I have made great new friends through this game. I highly recommend this to my friends. But be careful this game can be addictive.
Becoming unplayable 2/5
By SI Jim
I have been playing War of Nations since it was released, and I found it enjoyable; however, within the last few months, I have been unable to play any events except the Campaign. Every base I have gets all of their units wiped out, so I can participate. I have had battles with 3,000 of every type of unit (oil & iron and variety), Defense Grid, and active attack & Defense boosts with a lower level Attack leader, and they wipe me out and I am only able to kill their low end units choppers, tanks, jeeps, etc. Then I have no units to participate in any events. I would not recommend wasting your time,until they are able to balance play and make it more difficult to bottom feed. I think I am going to give them a little more time to fix it before, give it up, and focus on Modern War which is more balanced for novice and experienced players alike. Also if you get attacked you don't receive battle points, and as soon as they added Carbon edition, every base was wiped of units. The people who use gold will be alone if this continues. Even events that I can participate in take a half an hour to find an opponent, which is much to long.
Having server issues in w5 1/5
I can’t submit an server issue because the window to type covers the submit button to even attempt to submit one. I have a picture to show connection error which has been showing for over 5 mins.
WAS the best game-UPDATE 1/5
Now add in the complete and total useless support! Wow open a ticket and the first email back is that they are closing the ticket as resolved--but if they find an issue...I have worked in IT support for countless years and I have never seen such a lack of caring, and Total disregard!!! Move on to others, avoid ROCKYOU, Inc all together!!!!
The game certainly had its day, but the days of strategy and teamwork to get stronger and elicit competition have long since been replaced with how much you can afford to spend. Couple that with the game lag and downtime each time a new world or event is created, it isn't hard to see why the ratings are on the decline...it is really too bad as this was at one time one of the most fun games to hit the App Store.
This app is a money grab 1/5
By Whyte Diddy
Rock you is a clearing house for older games. They have not created any new content, except new commanders. Steer clear of this app. The only people that play are the ones that have invested enormous amounts of money and y new players are just bait for them.
Game is getting much better 5/5
By My review username was taken
Been playing this game for over three years. The game has gotten much better under the new developer. Recommend to get on a top team and u won't have to coin as much as long as everyone is active and competitive. Advice for developer - create periodic player suggestion surveys, the guys I play with have some great ideas.
Account Recovery 4/5
I've played for several years now and had a few accounts. I love the game, but I can't play at the moment because after getting a new phone I can't seem to get my account back. If i could recover my account I would love to continue playing.
Needs more real reviews, so here. 5/5
By Reyls 26
This is the first game I've seen dens respond to feed back. I used to have a high lvl account and I ran a famous guild. I don't know what happened but I lost all of it now I see the unappealing nature to new players. 1st DEVS. Please put off the transactions into a tab. PLEASE. WE NEED NEW PLAYERS. There needs to be a tab with all transactions. So stop shoving it in our faces. 2ND. This game is great. I've never seen anything like it. It truly gets more innovating and exciting every update, more stuff to do every time. Again sometimes it's unappealing to new players. 3RD. NPCs are farming tools and no threat at all. Please make these outposts attack bases and play actively like a player. It keeps newcomers hands full. Thank you for reading. If you want to further discuss this here is my number and PSN. 386-837-6674
My PSN is gojokid24. Thank you and goodnight OH OH AND LET US BUILD MORE OUTPOSTS. LIKE 15 OR 20
