Forge Of Empires (2014) Review

In Real Time Strategy

FForge of Empires is a MMORTS that sends the player on a journey through the early ages of civilization; the player is placed in control of a small Stone Age village and must take it through various eras with the aim of creating a powerful empire. This RTS has another feature that makes it stand out from the other games in the genre; the game has a single player campaign.

Every age in the campaign has specific goal to work towards so that the player can progress further into the game; the player must fill the era requirements to move on to the next one. More of the game will be unlocked as the game progresses and this acts as a long tutorial for the game which is perfect for players who are new to the RTS genre. During the later eras of the game, there will be provinces available which can be conquered.

Research is available later in the game and many items in the game must be research before they can be built; there are also requirements for being able to research new things for the city, these are usually resource or gold based. Each era also has a research requirement that needs to be met before the game will progress any further.

As expected from a RTS game; all actions use wait timers and resources are gained automatically from certain buildings. Resources can also be gained by defeating a neighboring province or other player cities. When conquering a province the player needs to defeat each segment and take the city that controls it.

The PvP in Forge of Empires is much more interactive then most other RTS games; combat is turn-based and uses a hexagon grid system. Each unit type in the game has different statistics and while every era introduces new units, there are early game units that can counter them. This allows for strategic and engaging combat between players. When a city is successfully attacked the player will be able to loot one of the buildings in it for whatever it contained.

Forge of Empires is a unique game in a crowded genre and spreading the game across several times in human civilization makes this game stand out in the crowd; like with all RTS games, there is an element of pay-to-win as there is an option to skip timers. The PvP is very engaging however it is very limited overall.

I still don’t understand how it works but I am getting the impression that we have to pay a lot of florins for what amounts to useless junk.

Tried to plow through the quests and save all florins in an attempt to get a fully upgraded bridge. Waited until the daily chest was offered that has the 20% chance of an upgrade, spent 6000+ florins, opening 10 chests I believe... Zero. Upgrades.

Began feeling like it was going to be hopeless... today I scooped 3 upgrades, a Reno kit and an SOK. Have watched some big scoops slip out of reach on the high-stakes table. In general I find these competitive events highly stressful!

Renaissance Mansion (I want more 😉) Love that it gives lots of population! Grand Bridge + an upgrade. Mass Motivation Kit. Tree of Love (pretty, but wish it was more than just happiness). Wish we didn’t have to wait 24hrs for next event, but besides that - no complaints. 🎉🎉🙌🏻😉😉

Yeah it's a great event, next time don't bother to call it the Carnival though, just call it 'please waste your money and buy diamonds so you can get some more tickets, our Devs are starving'

On one world I got 14,000 medals, and on another a level 2 Grand Bridge, plus saved up over 4000 Florins, so I'm more than happy with the event so far, and looking forward to the rest.

Event is already proving to be badly misrepresented, have spent 36 tickets thus far and no reward. The odds post are not accurate, seems to be another colossal waste of time.

In the future there should be some sort of reason to be the first to play the game after the prize is collected. For example, why would I risk a 95% fail rate to win 100 coins when I can win 10 at 100%. When the prize is at base level there should be an additional reward if you win. This way it makes all games worth playing regardless if the florin pool is high.

Can't open forums at all. Tried several times. Why is it listed if you can't use it. Or do I have to spend mega bucks before you'll let me in?

The newest update sucks. It keeps trying to get me to log in with Facebook ... I don’t have my Facebook account tied to my Forge account, and in fact I have it tied to another forge account I don’t even use, meaning logging in with it will screw up my game so I always close the window... but every freaking time I come into Forge, there’s that Facebook login page popping up again. Enough!

I just opened the big chest on both of my account. Once on my secondary and twice on my primary. And I got 3 Mass Motivation boosts. Since that is the booby prize with a 25% chance, I'm thinking, either someone missed a decimal point somewhere in that program, or I'm just that unlucky. My guess is, it's a programming screw up. Then again, having to go through 14 tickets on the 15% reward and not getting anything once, probably has something to do with bad programming as well. But who knows, maybe it's just my BAD luck.

I had great success winning Watchfires which is the only thing I wanted out of this event and got some. Hopefully they will be offered again later in the game, maybe even as a direct prize. Thank you.

Is there a "Daily Questline" as noted on the Wiki site? I copied the list and noted Feb.22nd to Mar 12th have side quests that need to be done, or they'll stack up, if they're not done, to be completed before this event ends. I can't find any indicator or flag on my play field. Please post a screen shot of what icon indicates this part of the Quest. No way can all of these side quests can be completed in one day! As a side note, the gambling event, gives 3 challenges. The 2nd one is more profitable, for florins, to be collected to buy bigger prizes. However the prices, of the "middle" prize, is/are too high unless you have to spend "real money" to increase your ticket talley over and above the "1 per hour" method that's employed now. Something to think about. I find that I (players) have/will to spend 8 - 12+ tickets, on the middle challenge which elevates the florin count over 110+ before it drops the cup and sends the amount up to the top. A player has to wait 12 hours to get/use a full sleeve, of tickets, to see if this "win" actually happens. Since it's a game of chance, that's 22 tickets for 24 hours. We have 4 weeks to collect over 616 tickets (without buying any "real money" options, anywhere). You're welcome to correct my math and assumption.

I have to infiltrate 2 sectors on the map. I don't have any available sectors on the map. I guess that's the end of the event for me. Tried to open forums and it's telling me my name does not exist.

Has anyone ever suggested to do a 1down kit? I have tons of Champs retreat but I wish they were from earlier ages to use with Traz. Also as a suggestion daily challenges should not require to acquire sectors, since this are limited and getting goods from advanced ages is a blocker.

For people whining about percentages and not winning, wait for your stock of tickets to build up (30+) and wait for someone else in your hood to build up the prize total (at least 300) and then just click like mad. I've found if I have at least 30 tickets and the reward is higher than 300 then I have a good chance to win, it may take all 30 tickets, but this usually works for me. My complaint with this event, all events and daily quests is all these 5 minute productions. This goes completely against how my city is built, wasting the usefulness of the LoA and RAH and it's really not "fun." What's the point of playing a game if it's not fun? As for the percentages, it's similar to a slot machine, so in a slot machine, you can drop 100 quarters into it and never win. Same with this on the max reward, you can spend a hundred tickets and never win. If this bothers you, just do the safe option and get a guaranteed, though much smaller reward.

Only playing this on one of my worlds, but I'm enjoying it so far. Plus I really want that Gondola Dock Market, trying to build my own little version of Venice.
