Forces can also be split up between multiple commanders so that you can engage in multiple actions simultaneously.

#Alliance System#
Full set of alliance features allow players to help one another: alliance chat with built-in translation function, officer roles, map indicators to coordinate strategies, and more!

Suggestions and constructive Criticism!

I enjoy playing the game, as it has features like the app “DomiNations.” The concept is fantastic and amazing, and would give my appreciations towards the devs. From the graphics, to easy concepts I enjoy, there are things I would suggest which are fixable; and would make the app a much more fun experience. The app needs a system in which bases can be closer to one another rather than spread out, as that is the key concept in games like these. Teamwork is a essential part so being closer to allies and forming hives is a strategy. Another thing which would improve the game is a to reduce the time periods, as I noticed while playing as a new member that right away the 15 seconds go to hours, and there is even 1 month speeds that can be bought! This shows that money is starting to play a role. Brutal age is a great app which allows players to advance even without the use of speeds bought, which is what this game needs. If these two issues are fixed, I would gladly stay t’ill the end.
-It would also be amazing if new servers are not made as frequent as that will allow servers to die, and less people to be active in older servers. The limit for people per server should be increased, as more people is much more fun.

Hi governor, thanks for your feedback. If you want to be closer to your alliance, there are 2 ways. 1.Targeted Teleport: You need to occupy the pass of the field where you want to move, then you can choose an open area on that file and move. 2.Territory Teleport: You need to find an open area on your alliance territory, then click it and move, if you use it out of your alliance territory, it will change to targeted teleport automatically. And we will continue to optimize our game.

Could be a great game but too much p2w

Addendum: I am dropping my rating another star. Seems the devs made some error in rewards during Osiris and gave out more coins then they intended. They took back items purchased or unused coins so many of us now have negative stars/statues/keys. It’s a shame that this company chose to punish their customers for their mistake. I will most likely quit the game because of this; I’m just too discouraged by the setback and disregard of the company for their players.

I have been playing several hours a day, every day, for 8 months and, with about $75 invested, am CH25 but still only at 22mil power on this account. Significant , but not really that competitive over all. I am being held back by the need for gems that require real money to make any significant difference. Meanwhile, as others note, there are players who spend thousands of dollars and therefore have the ability, and sometimes the temperament, to flatten any in their way. I had quit an earlier game because of one such player and have had 3 teammates quit just this week in current kingdom because of this. Some of the events, like mighty governor, are always won by the high dollar p2w. It is no longer competitive nor fun so I no longer even try to earn a spot; I just cower in my city during KE. There needs to be a threshold for the p2w folks. For example, once you spend over, say, $500 or reach 50 million power, you must migrate to kingdoms set aside for those players.

Developer Response ,

Greetings Governor, after the activity was abnormal, some players obtained a large amount of illegal Osiris coins and used them to exchange the props. In order to maintain fairness in the game, we decided to recycle. we will work harder to optimize the game and bring a better game experience to the players. Thank you for your understanding.

Really great game, but not complete

Ok, so let me start out that I absolutely love the game. The game mechanics are amazing, I love the fog of war idea, and the fact that each commander speaks their native language and not English. And as a Roman and Byzantium history nerd, I love the fact that the Latin in the game is quite decent compared to other games (it isn’t perfect, but that is what you get from a dead language that doesn’t translate well into other languages).

Now, I feel like the nations to choose from is very limiting. From a game about the ancient and medieval ages, Africa and the Middle East were left out, and they have some of the richest history during that time, from the African Empires that rose to power all the way to the Persian empire and the crusades.

Specifically, I would like to see three more nations added: Ethiopia, Egypt, and Persia. Ethiopia rose to power after the fall of the Roman Empire and remained a powerful nation until after WW2. Persia created a very advanced civilization that grew strong and powerful and became one of the largest empires until the greeks conquered it. Then the Persian Empire reformed itself as the Sassanian Empire and conquered the remaining Romans and Byzantines to form the Ottoman Empire. I do not know much on the history of Egypt, but as one of the first powerful civilizations in human history, it should be obvious why they should be added into the game.
