Amazing game worth millions
This game is the best and most addicting mobile game I’ve ever played but sadly this game was made around P2W which really does break my heart I maybe put in around 60$ into the game to speed up some buildings and stuff but of course the more you play the more you see how it’s P2W like the best hero items for war you have to spend 100$ to get a bundle that comes with a couple of chest to hope the RNG gods will give you the right items and even if you were to get the best RNG you have to still buy like 10 more since you have to upgrade the item like 4 times and each time it takes more items to do it so if you want a chill 75 day game this one will win you over but after those 75 days are over your kingdom becomes unprotected and you have all the P2W players joining your fresh new kingdom to try and rule it and it becomes game over for people who haven’t spent around 1k$ in bundles like i said I spent around 60$ and played for more then 75 days and I’m only at 14mil might you have people who are in the billions in might which I’m telling you is impossible unless you spend around 5k$ especially seeing the items the billions and some millions got it’s mind blowing that they make all this money but yet still can’t make a monster that drops the items at like a 1% chance to at least be able to obtain the items for free instead of putting a message saying that these items can only be obtained in the shop bundles just mind blowing logic
Prepare to pay
I played this game for a few months, pretty consistently. I didn't spend any money in all that time although I could have thrown the developers a few bucks since I did get a lot of entertainment out of it. There's a lot here to do, but you really are going to be a nobody in this game unless you spend a ton of money, which is one reason why I never spent anything, it wasn't really going to do anything to spend a little bit of money when everyone else is spending thousands. If you do want to spend that kind of money, just buy yourself a PS4 or a PC. Like most games, it gets repetitive after a while and there really is no end to the research and building, although after a year or so you might be able to max out all of your buildings. The big issue in this game is the conflict is almost always one sided, with the really powerful players just going after weak players. Getting attacked isn't so bad, but it does get annoying. It'd be more fun if the kingdoms we're organized in a way that players of a similar might were together but that would probably discourage spending money so it's unlikely that'll ever happen. So if you want to spend thousands of dollars on a game for your phone, this is probably a good investment, otherwise, save yourself some time and find a different game.
Good luck competing with players that spend thousands
The key here is you pay to win this game. Just like all the MMO war games, this one engages in microtransactions and special one off buys (in realm of over 100$) which create a wide gap between somebody who would pay a single 50$ for a similar console game and would work through getting all the perks. This creates a huge number of whales that spend big money (probably more than $1000 and by some estimates must be more than $5000) tns completely edge you out. Good luck having fun when your time and some money get completely wrecked by somebody who apparently has nothing better to do but spend $1000s of dollars. So totally unfair and not fun. **In response to developers: no you don’t take advice because if you did you wouldn’t have buyable heroes that give not enough medals to get to higher levels. I have to spend over two hundred dollars to get buy-only heroes over blue rating. Probably over 500 dollars to get to purple. And probably another thousand to get over yellow. This is insane. You are shamelessly making it fun only for people with massive bank accounts. AVOID THIS GAME IF YOU DONT MIND HAVING YOUR KINGDOM RAZED BY A BILLION PLUS PLAYER EVERY OTHER DAY. Yes. It’s that bad.
Only for big spenders now
By Country Chick 15
This game was really fun when my husband and I started playing a year ago. There was always something to construct, research, forge, and train. As we got higher, wait times got longer. Which isn’t that big of a deal if you’re even a little bit social because of the amazing people you meet on the game. There’s days that the only reason you log on is because of them as you have 100+ days left before your research finishes. A few months ago, however, the developers began to get greedy. They decided offering buyable heroes that takes $11,000 to max is a good idea. It went downhill fast from there. They are slowly edging out the free to play and moderate pay to play spenders (like myself) in favor of only having the ones that can spend more than a house costs. This is evidenced by their latest update coming in a few hours. The shields that protect our troops when we’re not able to be online (you know when we’re working for the money to spend on the game, or sleeping cause we aren’t bots), will no longer be effective against attacks. They have received countless complaints about this, but it seems they no longer care to listen to even the ones that do pay. I will lose so many of my guild mates if they implement this, which will cause me to quit as well. So they will successful in only wanting to have $$$ spenders. So if you can spend upwards of $50,000, then this game is for you!
There is no way to be competitive in this game without spending literally thousands of dollars. Overpowered guilds will regularly destroy your troops and steal your resources. It’s a completely unfair system of play that seeks to optimize cash flow for the developer and doesn’t take into consideration the average customer. Additionally, even if you’re willing to invest large amounts of money in the game, the developers do nothing to support you as a player. As a former guild leader in game managing one of the more powerful guilds, I spent over $7,000 on this game, all without receiving anything but a “thanks” from the developer. And even after spending that amount of money building up my troops and defenses, I was destroyed by someone with millions more might than me, which implies that that individual must have spent well over $20,000 on this game. In short, unless you’re a millionaire who likes giving away tens of thousands of dollars, do NOT download this game.
Also, after reading through other users’ comments, it’s funny to see how little IGG cares; they can’t even take the time to answer and acknowledge our complaints, but only use a cookie-cutter response that tries to get you to email them directly so they don’t have to air their dirty laundry. I have emailed IGG, twice, and they do not respond. Companies like this are ruining the mobile gaming marketplace.
Good game but could use some work
Starting off here, I think this game has some potential. It's really easy so probably not for hard gamers, but it's a great way to pass some time, and when I first got it, I thought to myself, "eh, when I get tired of it in a couple hours I'll just delete it." Well now I've been playing for a few days. I also love the idea that people that are in the same guild as you can help speed up your building time. I also like the idea of getting free builds by attacking (I think at least haha). Now, like most other games, this one could use some extra work. The screen looks very cluttered and messy, and is very confusing. There is just so much going on that it's a bit hard on the eyes. You can build an army that can last a long time and can choose who attacks and who defends, but I feel like I need more control over battles. For example, attacking other kingdoms, you can choose how many and who attacks, but other than that you can really only just watch the battle. I hope the devs read this, and if they are thanks! Also for those who are thinking about getting the game, it's not quite perfect yet, I personally think it deserves a try!
Scam! Scam! Scam!
Wish there was a zero star option for scammers who steal your money!!!
I was really enjoying this game as it was a good distraction while getting my walking/treadmill time in. It was very interactive and made the miles go by much faster. I was going to leave a good review to that end... HOWEVER, I decided to make an in-app purchase for a game package in order to play more while I waited on upgrades that take progressively longer (DAYS - which is also ridiculous!) I made the purchase, yet never received the game items. I followed up with their customer support and provided a screen shot with proof of the purchase showing on my Apple account and that still wasn’t enough to either credit the items to my account or cancel my purchase. After going round and round,(about a stupid in-app purchase) I was told repeatedly that it was not their problem, that I would have to chase the Apple store down about it. So now, my money is tied up somewhere in cyberspace, but the app that accepted my money has no clue where it is and no access to the order? Yet IT WAS PURCHASED THROUGH THEIR APP!!! Still no resolution as of this time, but entirely too much trouble for something so small. But I don’t like getting ripped off and my money taken for something I don’t receive. SCAM! SCAM! SCAM!!!
Lots of potential
First off I will say I have since deleted the app. There is just too much going on for the laid back gamer who is just looking to waste a little bit of time between other activities or just relaxing. You have to appease your guild, which I was kicked out a number of times because I wasn’t growing fast enough, everyone wanted over 100k, in game would be called might, everyday. Then you have to research, construct, attack others, grow your leaders, and train an army. There is just too much to worry about and one attack from another person will set you back a weeks worth of time and effort. Then after like the first couple of constructs or research it takes days at a time to be able to have the other one available to you. It’s just a lot to worry about, too much, especially if you can’t get into a strong guild to help you. Oh and you have this coliseum thing to worry about, see almost forgot something, which involves your leaders you have to find time to train to be successful. This game will be too complicated for most to handle.
Greed and Self Destruction
I have been playing this game for six months, and spent a lot of money (upwards of 8k). The design of the game is very much to get you to spend, that’s fine, there is an entertainment value there that I can justify. It’s overpriced for sure, but I can choose not to spend.
This new update though... allowing familiars to attack through shields. This will completely destroy the game. I don’t know what this developer is thinking, but my guess is they must believe it will lead to more sales by churning troops for even those that sit shielded daily. The reality of it may be that they have just hit the self destruct button. I like to lose my troops the old fashion way, by sending them into battle. Now while I sleep shielded (or even through my busy work day) I’m at risk of losing what I have invested, time and money.
This is a terrible decision, and if not reversed before it costs me my army will mean quitting for me. I don’t have the time to play 24/7, and even if I did, what defense do I have against a player with this? I mean, even randoming around the maps they can still find me. Good job IGG for ruining what was fun, albeit greedy, but fun game! Poor management (or inmates are running the asylum)
Shelter bug admin refuses to acknowledge
I am a avid gamer, but this time this game is not worth it to play. I have been at this game for months now but no longer due to a bug that admin and GM refuse to fix or acknowledge exists. When you put troops into shelter for 12hr increments they should be safe but NO after a couple hrs of shelter get hit by players and all troops are gone and so is your shelter time. Also apparently GM keep track of all shelter and shield times on players igg accounts but when told about the issue happening they go by the report instead of actual time stamped pics of entering shelter mode for 12 hrs to being attack 2-3 hrs later and lose everything within the shelter like it doesn’t exist. You lose rss besides a leader and troops every time. To me that’s a waste of time and effort to not only lose rss but to have to use up what’s left of rss that didn’t get taken to heal troops that should have been protected in The first place. Let alone money if you use cc to pay for more rss to do it.
I say again I advise new players to not get this game or coming back players to hold off from getting the app until this issue is resolved.
Entertaining but expensive.
By Jesus JR.🎏
I love this game, it's a blast to play, although I am rating 2 starts in protest of an issue that is going to destroy this game if not fixed. This game is way to expensive, I have spent about 70$ as that doesn't seem much but it's worth a full AA game on the computer or Xbox and I still am overshadowed by players who pay THOUSANDS of dollars and it becomes a war between p2p and f2p just become farms for the high might players.
The greed of this game will cause many players to quit which will = less income and less players and if there's no f2p players then there's no game, many people are probably okay with paying a few hundred or maybe even a thousand or 2 but it seems as there's a line that has been long crossed, for example it will take thousands and hundred of dollars to even train a hero to gold-legendary grade, thousands of dollars into building and researching T4 troops, I myself am a 5mil might player, although have heard many experiences like this and would hope that this issue is fixed.
I will continue to play but I am warning you that if you want to be good in this game you need to be rich.
Of all the apps out there, this game is definitely one of them
Hi! I’m the lead singer of the popular band “Bastille”. I saw your ad playing on my music video and thought I’d give your game a try. The actors in your ads are great by the way, where’d you find them, Craigslist? Anyway, once I downloaded the game, I was astounded by the breathtaking gameplay. It felt as though I had a huge impact on what was happening in game. Also, the menus and map were not cluttered at all, and very easy to navigate. It’s almost as if you took clash of clans and removed everything remotely fun about it. That’s what I love in a game. I love upgrading buildings just so they can give me the ability to upgrade more buildings. I can’t wait to get to the point in the game where I can pwn a total scrub. Also, the idea of having like 5 different types of currency in the game is genius. Anyway, greatest game out there, also check out my very new song “Pompeii” it’s pretty good.
Love the game
By Doctor fish shah
I was a long time CoC player that hated the idea of title of clan actually having very little to do with the game so I tried this game and since 6 months ago it’s been a match made in heaven I love this game and I love the service it’s creators provide I have suggestions but since it’s no longer on news I hoped you would see this my main one that I wanted to say is I would love to see a booster for Energy to hunt monsters with just how their is resource boosters it would bring much more hunting to the game making it easier to kill higher lvl monsters but still a challenge 25% boost sounds perfect to me only able to win through guild events or gems it would help lower f2p players grow and gives back to the f2p community making more desire to get hunting research done so it will be that much faster besides that great game that’s needs little tweaking but even the Titanic was impenetrable good luck ty for the game
For Titan Whales only
I am quitting my 290M might account this week after 680 days of play. While new players may enjoy the early stages of building and research and hero development, they will quickly be smashed by all the (mostly East Asian) titans. A lot of them have 1B night accounts and wear Gold level champion gear which requires $160k US roughly. The gold gear more than offsets skill and numbers which we discovered when our full fort was destroyed by a half filled rally led by a gold champ gear titan. The latest mechanism - Familiars - allows p2p players to rush familiars that can attack through shields. The whole familiar system itself is miserably expensive in RSS and time for tiny little bonuses and its usability is crap. Everything new in the game - especially the new heroes that require $99 per pack - is aimed at sucking money from rich players.
In short, if you like pouring money into a black hole of greedy micro-transactions to kill weaker players, his game is for you! For everyone else who like the genre, I recommend finding a newer game where you have a chance of developing enough strength to survive the big spenders and then to quit once the game has too many titans to be fun.
I have been playing now for over a year and I’m doing pretty good but I do think you need free to play kingdoms as well it takes away the fun when you start a new game and after a few days people are 20 million might and just burning everyone!!! You should make an option when you start for the ftp or pay to play if someone chooses free to play make it to wear they can buy stuff obviously because I know you don’t want to lose money and take all of the characters and stuff away but make sure people can’t spend more then 20$ a month or something or if they want a 100$ pack then that’s all they get for the month so that people that just want to play can buy things but just boost to run a kingdom it makes people quit and a lot of dead castles it’s causing new people to the game not like it trust me I know I just created a new account it’s causing a lot of problems
I tried this game. Got all the way to max castle and building levels. Joined countless Guilds. The result.. it does not matter what strategy you think you have, for it is ONLY about who is willing to spend the most real world money into the game. Those who spend real money (in app purchases) are the ones who dominate the game. The amount of time it takes to build and especially research without spending money is absurd.. you will take months/years to get your research items to max level. Spend money on gems tho, you will cut those times way down. There are tier 1 to tier 4 troop types. It doesn't matter how many tier 1 to tier 3 troop types. Those who spend extremes amount of money to complete both tier 4 troop type research and recruitment of myriads of tier 4 troops dominate the game. Think being in a guild helps? If the guild you are in is a bunch of pay-2-play members you will do okay, otherwise be prepared to get stomped on routinely unless you spend money for shields (you don't earn them frequently enough). In all it isn't really a game but a money pit, with those who spend the most money in the so-called-game dominating everyone else.
Pay to play, sleep deprived for safety, and costumer services
By "unsatisfied customer"
I have been playing lords mobile for about 610 days now and when ever I get attacked it’s by some big spender who dumps thousands, yes Thousands, into this game. Then just to top it off the game devs have “maintenances” where they don’t let you log on for a hour or more, and when these “maintenances” end you probably would have been forced to stay up all night to save all your stuff. They don’t give you protection after the maintenance ends or tell you that it is about to start before it starts. Then After when you get “zeroed” (lose everything you spent months building up) they won’t help you recover because of the thing that they forced upon you so your back to the grind of rebuilding. This problem has occurred many times and I’ve tried many different solutions and sent recommendations to IGG and all I ever get back is some automated message basically saying “hey sorry we ruined your gaming experience but go away now spend money on us and we might care”
Overall unless your willing to dump loads of money into this game I wouldn’t start it anymore.
Way better than Clash of Clans
I like this game a lot, and am very surprised by how much free gems (premium game currency) that you can get playing this game. I just wish it were possible to buy premium hero medals with gems. Even if you have to buy the first pack of medals to unlock it, it would be nice if you could buy more with gems instead of money. I loved that you gave us all thousands of gems during the Christmas event though! And they reward us with gems after maintenance too. You can get very far with FTP though, and it’s waaaay less PTP than a lot of other mobile games. I especially like that you don’t use up stamina when you lose a hero stage. That was an unexpected surprise.
In closing, I downloaded this game to get coins from tapjoy. I planned to uninstall it, but after playing, I got hooked! Love it! Can’t wait to see what exciting events lie in store. I’m a relatively new player, so I’m still learning the ropes! ;)
Fun and quite addicting buuuuut...
Hi hi, Lords mobile is quite a fun addictive game that is great for pass time and making new friends. Different gear, perks and strategy along with strengths and weaknesses. A player can focus on archers and combat Calvary but have a tough time against infantry and I enjoy that. Even the leaders, or Heroes, have their specific bonuses that you have to choose which to spend more time developing in order to achieve their bonuses, which can boost your military and growth greatly.
However, it heavily depends how deep your pockets go. Pay to win. At the end of the day it depends who spends the most money to boost their speed of development. I admit, I put forth some money myself trying to keep up with some people, or even just burn a castle attacking my guild. But those who spend a couple thousand win over those who spend a couple hundred. Perhaps pulling back on buying options would help this matter.
But overall enjoy the game! Keep up the updates!
Don’t install for crowns
By domination palagar
If you came from another app to get bonus crowns like I did with domination don’t bother ironsrc doesn’t pay out... bad company sent a support ticket and they did not approve it sent them image proof of my completion in accordance of the pay wall as advertise but no dice
Playing domination app installed and run the bonus app lord mobile completed the mission to get 2k bonus crowns by destroying a lvl 2 monster. Never got the crowns promised and in the missing crowns tab is not showing been 2 days so far contacted dominations support they gave me information to put a ticket in for ironsrc they removed their customer support tab in domination so googling them was harder to find.... sketchy sketchy don’t support sketchy companies
Update for developer response idk I was pretty sure my description may have covered your a and b so let’s just answer them just in case.. a) clicked on your offer 100 percent and reading other source of your reviews seems like I’m not the only one b) contacted my provider which directed me to your provider now you want me to contact them again?
The Ultimate Pay to Play
Do you have thousands of dollars laying around? If so, Lords Mobile, the ultimate pay to play (P2P) or pay to win (P2W) experience. Want good leaders? Buy them! Want good gear? Buy it! Want to be shielded so you don’t get attacked by people with better leaders and gear? Buy a shield! Don’t want to get attacked while shielded? Well, you are out of luck there. Yes, there are some things that money just can’t buy.
While this game IS free, in actuality the game offers very little for the free to play person. Drop rates for good crafting items are insanely low and research time for endgame skills are literally years long. App Store prices in other regions create an unfair advantage for many in the Asian market. All new content added (heroes, high end gear, castles, etc) is targeted specifically for those who opt to pay. Even the contests are aimed for those willing to drop $100 or more per entry.
This game has the ability to be fun, but micro transactions are the driving force.
First off, if you have the cash to blow through you will have fun. Dev’s should offer a free to play server for those who want to play the game to its best without the worry of some big spender taking over.
The area most lacking is in the clan management area. There is not a good way to manage your members activity besides good old pen and paper. Please consider adding the following.
1) weekly helps- this allows us to track on a weekly basis how many helps new and existing members are providing each week.
2) weekly Dark Nest help- Allows is to see who’s participating in darknests.
2) weekly monster kills by level.- allows us to see who is contributing to killing monsters by level.
3) in game alarm- similar to we gamers, we would like to be able to sound an alarm in game.
4) Alliance Chat- in addition to clan chat and kingdom chat, we would like to be able to set up in game alliance chat to quickly notify our alliances of incoming attacks or defenses.
5) Rally Improvements- Allow players to remove their own reinforcements and not have to rely on the rally leader. Include the troop composition when viewing rally troops deployed. Currently we can’t see the total troop types in the rally, we can only see the troops sent individually which makes understanding the troop comp difficult.
Thanks for reviewing!
Best game ever
About a year ago I downloaded this game to find out it was everything I wanted. Then I deleted it because it was not as fun. But I redownloaded and it was even better then before even though we still have some pretty mean people who say stuff in chat it’s great 10/10. It has skirmish’s to get more land in your kingdom. I have only spent about 15$ on the game and that’s because I wanted to buy some exclusive hero’s and that stuff. I have been playing this game for ages since I redownloaded it and I won’t stop playing because I’m in a really good guild. But please make the treasure trove accessible at lvl 15 and also pls make holy stars cost less because I’m paying 2,200 gems for 1,000 holy stars. 1k holy stars is enough to kill only 1 monster. Only 1. But other than that it’s best game I’ve played ever!!!!!!!!👍🏻👍🏻😀😀👍🏻👍🏻😄😄
Needs to be FTP kingdoms
By Matt Fellner
This game is fun and a great time killer, but there should be an option for the free to play people to go on/migrate to their own kingdoms so that it's a fair play game. Being in a kingdom with people that have over a billion might is simply unfair. If this game had an option to be in a free players only kingdoms, it would be a 5 star game no doubt, there are so many things to do and with updates it keeps growing. But the billion/hundreds of millions in night players just make me wanna stop playing the majority of the time. Please take this into consideration, although I know you guys make profit on the players that wanna be most dominant, you gotta remember the little guys like me. So what if the free to play people can't fight for baron, but at least there would be an even playing field for millions of players. I garuntee this is why I see so many unguilded and zeroes players just sitting empty. Other than that it's a pretty great game.
