Game Impressions

So I have been playing this game for about an hour. It is enjoyable, but definitely won't be for everyone with all the freemium elements. Think of it as a more basic version of the classic, Civilization, with huge timers and F2P elements, including a premium currency (duh). Another turn off for some people will be the facebook integration. Those with a facebook, and the willingness to connect it to this game will get a huge influx of Power Points, the premium currency. By allowing the game to post (privately) to your wall, you can gain tons of Power Points. I have earned about $50 worth of Power Points from the facebook integration which will give those facebook users a huge boost to their game. For example, I can earn 50 Power Points for sharing an achievement instead of the normal 3, by connecting facebook.

Not sure if anyone else here has played the game, but it's been in soft launch for a year. I just downloaded it today, but I think it has potential. I am not very far into the game so I don't know if it has any real social interactions to it.

Cheers.

I don't mind freemium, but I can't stand facebook elements. I'm sure I'll download and give it a try though.

Anyone know how to attack in this game? lol I go to war but i can't do anything. My troops wont attack the other nation. This game does have potential but I wish the support page was in English...sigh.

Nevermind, it is working for me now. Just a little bug I guess.

Ok so I constantly poke fun at television commercials for those games that are clearly freemium traps. I swear every one of them starts their advertisement with the phrase "Build your empire" or something similar. Apparently it's a phrase that triggers something in us to play their timer based "pay only 99 cents to make this build faster" games.

I can't help but look at this and think that all illusions were dropped, it looks like they may as well have named it "in app purchase circus."

Am I wrong?

This game is just another pay trap. I have played it the last couple days and it "was" fun. But as I upgraded stuff like -% of beggar respawn they only seem to spawn faster which caused me to run out of supplies.

I have three nations on my borders that loses diplomacy every 2 hrs. So if I had them maxed out at +5 they would be at war with me in 10hrs. To raise +1 you need one to two copper bars that take 20 min each. If I was able to play non stop I could work it but at only a few hrs a day there is no way to advance without hitting a huge pay wall.

I understand these people make better money but really? There is more of a chance I would spend 99 cents for a day of fun but not just so I can make 1 of the 3 nations not attack me for the few hrs I can not play.

Shame too. I was ha icing fun last couple days with this one.
