A Look Back: Tier 4 troops – Classic Game of War

What we now call Demigod Dimension, I obtained tier 4 troops August 1, 2014. Below is what I reported that day. This is one of the first blog posts I wrote for Game of War Tips.

I’ve obtained tier 4 troops and have begun the training of each type. For 5,000 troops it requires 5 m of two of the rss type and 2.5 m silver. Not cheap, but hopefully worth it. I’m finishing research of war elephants tonight and will likely try to start onagers next. The plan is to do T4 walls next.

Fantastic Game of War artifact. I’m not sure how this compares to Dragon Dimension Tier 4, but my writing has improved quite a bit since 2014 I believe.

Dragon Dimension in Game of War is a return to classic Game of War. The days of KTTTT% are over. It’s much easier to manage your upgrades and to identify/calculate your upgrade increase.

 

 

Gathering kingdom event

So, today I log in to see a new kingdom event. 20,000 gold and various other speed ups for gathering and killing monsters. I was initially excited, but as I post this an “outlander” is attacking one of my farms.

The walls that protect the kingdom from others will be dropped during kingdom events now. At first I did not let this deter me. I need 40,000,000 points to obtain the top prize. 

So, I set out to farm some food because it will provide 2 points per resource. Not long after I settle in, I’m scouted by an outlander and then a march is sent. I’m using anti scout, so he has no idea what I have there, but I leave anyway.

Basically, this event is not so appealing. I can farm for points and risk losing troop power, or just sit in my stronghold and wait it out all weekend, or go to their kingdom and farm their strongholds… Either way there will be no farming of resources. Dumb event if you ask me.

Game of War Story: Make them an offer they can’t refuse…

Our Game of War Story

While many of our friends and old alliance mates have moved on to other things, it’s nice to reminisce about old battles and kingdom narratives.

“Game of War Story” project provides a place for players to reflect on the past 3 or 4 years experiences and friendships.

What’s your Game of War Story?

Enjoy this Game of War Story from October 20, 2014

The latest news in Dahae kingdom is a continuation of the DF (Dahae Fighters) vs. D (Dreaded Legion) saga.  DF, in a surprise move, has decided to offer new kingdom rules to all alliances.

This coming from the alliance that since its inception has fought against rules of the ruling alliance, creating chaos and fear, forcing many to quit Game of War completely.

Game of War Kingdom Rules: Dahaefighter

The spirit of these new rules are said to strengthen the kingdom for kvk events.  They are basically 1) no tile hitting outside of kill event 2) no holding heroes 3) no rallying.

The most comical part of the whole scenario was they created a room for the leaders of alliances to join and discuss the rules.  But you can imagine how that went.

Keep in mind DF has been terrorizing it’s own kingdom for months now.  Zeroing people, farming them, executing heroes.

Initially they stated it was to toughen and strengthen the weak for kvk.  Now they argue Dahae needs rules of non aggression to grow.

R5 Kingdom Discussions

The discussion was pleasantly taking place until one member of DF became agitated and began cursing everyone in the room out.

This ultimately led to most of the top alliances to reject the rules.

DF has since announced war against them.

The smaller alliances who accepted the rules have already experienced DF breaking them by being tiled by them.

True Intentions of Kingdom Rules

So, what are the true intentions behind these new rules?

Mostly posturing to appear to rule the kingdom?  DF can’t even control the wonder.  Last night they got their butt’s handed to them by PK.

In my mind they continue to be a band of misfits and thieves attempting to establish themselves as an honorable and legitimate alliance with Dahae’s best interests at heart.

Sounds like the lie Michael Corleone from The Godather tells his wife over and over.  “We will soon be 100% legitimate.”

More Anvil Fun!

Another kvk kill event over the weekend and once again I caught some big fish with my sh 14.

I nearly won this battle against tier 4. Had I a few thousand more troops or a bit better gear I think I could have pulled it off.

Here is the breakdown:

In the end I won the event!

I’ll be pushing troop count, rebuilding a few thousand traps, and crafting better gear for the next kill event.

How To Fix GoW Lag, Latency, Connection, Internet Problems

An option in Game of War was added that most have overlooked.  Full Screen Toggle is meant to improve the clutter of your screen while in intense combat situations such as the Super Wonder, but it also helps with lag!

Full Screen Toggle allows the player to hide Alliance Tag and the Kingdom number of empires. This will make it easier to find players in a large cluster such as the Super Wonder.  It costs nothing but a few taps.

How does Full Screen Toggle Work?

First you must activate the toggle under options.  Navigate to “More” then “Options”.  Next, scroll down Full Screen Toggle and select the features you wish to activate.  Now, test the feature by finding a hive or cluster of empires.  This feature works only like in Full Screen.  To toggle full screen use the top right square with four arrows and view Game of War Full Screen.  You will now notice Alliance Tags and/or Kingdom numbers are absent from Empire names.

This feature will be a considerable help at Super Wonder where its difficult to find Empire names in all the confusion of hundreds of marches and long empire names when they have the Kingdom number and Alliance Tag.  Now, if only the lag at Super Wonder could be toggled off. Surprisingly, this full screen toggle feature does help with the lag.  Players are reporting at Super Wonder that when using full screen toggle mode their lag was completely removed.

I like to use the “inverse setting” so the tags are removed while in normal view.  Then, when I need to check an alliance or kingdom tag I toggle full screen to check.

Try it out and let me know your results!

More Lag Fixes

I’ve been using Nox App Player on my PC or Notebook computer to combat lag issues.  Game of War started as a mobile device app but has grown into a full application requiring much system resources and CPU power.  Nox allows you to increase the amount of system resources being used for increased efficiency.  I experience minimal lag while in coliseum, much less than with my iPad Air anyway.  My iPhone 5 I won’t even attempt to fight with it.  Its used as second device for eyes only.

Nox also allows players to download Amazon apps and use Amazon Coins for cheaper Game of War packs.  Since I had all Apple devices before I was unable to purchase and use Amazon Coins which allows players in the United States to get $100/packs for $75.  If you purchase a lot of packs using Amazon Coins could save you hundreds or thousands.  When you follow our link you support our site.  Thanks!
