It's fun but expect to pay

Been playing for a few years. Spent a bunch of money initially until I figured out how to do it without buying expensive packs. Great to be in a good alliance but they invariably fall apart when things get personal. Until then, I made good friends (have had one for almost 2 years since I started game). Takes a while to level up so that you don't get trounced but things stay pretty interesting.

Fun game, but PTW...

This is your typical base building, train troops, gather resources and attack/defend. The game is executed pretty decently compared to others in this genre. Shielding is a bit lame, as they stack in this game, but if you want to stay pera-shielded, you have to time them properly; it's more of a pain.
It's pretty simple to learn and not overly complicated.
The major downside to this game is that it is Pay-To-Win (PTW). Don't even expect to play this for more than a month unless you are prepared to pay or have strong friends already in the game. This game is catered to those that spend hundreds/thousands of dollars. Yes, I did say thousands. It is a money pit and if you want to compete, you have to spend. If your expendable cash is low, don't play this game.
This game could be improved by getting away from the PTW style or put brackets in the game that prevents someone who is 10x your size from being able to wipe you out completely.

I’ve played the game for about 4 years. The game was fun at first but you are going to have to spend big bucks in order for you to place in the events that give you the game’s best stuff that you need in order to compete or just stay playing the game or protect what your money buys you in the packs they offer in-game. Ember customer service is horrible. They never get back to you and they never really have a solution for you when they finally get back to you, if they get back to you at all that is. Also they can take your account from you for any reason they want. I spent well over $10,000 and spent countless amounts of hours over the 4 years playing Empire Z and they locked me out of my account and won’t give me a reason as to why and ember won’t answer the 20-30 emails I have sent them since the lockout happened. SAVE YOUR MONEY & TIME!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD or SUPPORT THIS GAME!!!
