Join our Team! Hiring Moderators

As you might know, we are going Free-to-Play with Kingdom Wars later this month, and all of us hope, and expect our player base to skyrocket. As it was from the start - our goal is to continue answering every question from our players - in-game, forums, or email. It won`t be easy - but we hope that with our expanded team of Moderators - we`ll be able to face this challenge.

So as you might have guessed - we are expanding our staff to hire a dozen of new moderators. We'll be recruiting from our loyal player base, and these veterans will be able to help our newest players settle in, as well as to have direct commutation with developers, and help improve and shape the game in the future.

Our greatly expanding team is highly organized, with core team of 3 leads and 8 head moderators who`ll help you get started and turn this part-time work into an enjoyable and memorable experience. We believe that being a moderator is not a tedious, routine job, but a fun, and important role to play in the game`s community.

-Have spent at least 30 hours in-game. Preference will be given to players with 50+ hours.
-Available to Moderate in-game or in the forums for 16-25 hours per week
-Availability to attend Moderators team meetings at 3pm EST, at least twice a month

-Spend “working” time inside the game`s chat. Helping new players get started, answering questions about features and potential bugs.
-Keep an eye out on players losing units and or resources and refund them accordingly.
-Monitor trouble makers and applying chat bans. Reporting more serious offenders to Head Moderators for a permanent ban
-Recording your weekly activity - players helped, amount of compensation resources sent, and submitting a small weekly check list to Lead Moderators
-Install Developers build of the game, and occasionally work directly with Dev Team on testing new content before it`s released to the public
-Moderators are not allowed to join or host alliances. If you are promoted to a Head Moderator, you will also loose ability to PvP
-Be patient with plyers. Understand not all players know everything in game, and for many English is not their first language. Or some players might still be just a few years old, and can`t be expected to follow instructions well
-Finally - try to log into the game at least every other game, and have fun! Even though this is a job, we wan't you to enjoy your time, and help shape the community.

-Moderators who have good performance for at least 1 month, will be given in-game credit
-Each month few best moderators will receive $ bonus, around $300
-Strong possibility of promotion to Head or Lead moderators, monthly salaried position. Typical time for promotion - 2 months of good service
-Access to developers build - try new content months before it`s available
-Access to all the game has to offer - keep in mind though, that we restrict the mods can interact with other players - no alliances for regular mods, no pvp for head mods e.t.c
-Weekly communication with the development team, and after a month personal Skype access to development team. We`ll listen to your feedback, suggestions e.t.c. This is your chance to shape the game
-Half of our current employees have originally joined the team as volunteer moderators. If you have skills, talents, and want to pursue career with Reverie - this is the best way to get your foot in the door, to move in to take over Game Designer, QA, Sound Designer, Art positions in the company.

How to Apply:
If your Application is chosen you will be contacted and interviewed via Skype. Only successful candidates will be contacted. We expect to finish recruitment by October 16th

Kingdom Wars goes Free-To-Play!

Finally, the long awaited announcement! Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars is going FREE-TO-PLAY this October!

Thousands of new players will build their empires and battle online without having to pay anything. We are also taking good care of our current players with a huge update - transforming the game with a lot of new content, new features, and massive changes to gameplay and balance.

And the best news - we are keeping Kingdom Wars as a game of skill, not bigger wallets. Kingdom Wars will NOT become a Pay to Win game, with micro-transactions only adding cosmetic items and decorations.

With just a few weeks left before the f2p launch, we wanted to extend a great "pre-order" offer of sorts to the new players, offering the game on sale for $4.99. This is a great chance to get a head-start on thousands of players to follow, as well as to get over $20 of content, that the new f2p players will have to unlock.

What's in it for our current players?
Very soon we'll have a game world alive with more players than ever before, with thousands of new players to fight and coop, as well as continuous updates for Kingdom Wars. All that comes with expanding our player population that's only possible with free-to-play business model.

Our loyal players, who paid for the game in the past, will not have any regrets about buying the game. Our players will get:

- All your town progress carried over, and start as elite in the new f2p game world. But it wont be long before new players to catch up
- The majority of micro-transaction content unlocked. Content that f2p players would need to spend over $20 to get
- A premium account, so that you can earn crowns from combat and quests twice as fast

What`s New?
We are planning to release all the new content in a patch later in August, before our free-to-play release in October.

Some of the new content and changes includes:
-Login using Steam Login and play using Steam client
-Gameplay and balance reworked from the ground up
-Countless bug fixes, and performance improvements
-Greatly expanded mod support team available around the clock
-More City Slots so you can play as more races/regions
-Removed the old Crown item shop, all elite units like Dragons are accessible from buildings like regular units
-Several new buildings for each race, including Market buildings for Orcs and Elves
-Select the colour of your soldiers armour
-Customize your Hero's armour, face and heraldry
-Design your army banner with colours, patterns and heraldry
-Decorate your buildings and battalions with your banner and flag
-Customize your town with different building materials
-Utilize one time use booster packs to give your town a kickstart
-Utilize Premium Account to temporarily boost quest and pvp rewards

NOT Pay-To-Win
With Kingdom Wars going free-to-play our primary goal is not to make hoards of gold, but to create a large player community that know about our games and hopefully like them enough to maybe spend a few dollars here and there to help support us.

We have considered different options for monetization, taking into consideration player suggestions and trying to avoid the common pay2win traps, and we think we have come up with a good model. Even now, things are not set in stone, as we will continue consulting with our players over the next month to come up with the system that makes everyone happy.

We hope you are all as excited as we are about this and we look forward to seeing you all in-game soon.

Free Empire Expansion

Our biggest expansion - Empire completely re-invents the gameplay - changing Kingdom Wars from a local city building game, into massive empire building simulation and greatly expanding the scope and length of the game. In Empire, players get to literally take over the world - commanding a huge military, political and economic empire that covers the entire game world - from the human Southmount Mountains to the desolate deserts of Brakental.

And, as has become our tradition, this expansion is once again absolutely free!

Free Arcana Expansion

The Arcana expansion introduces a new dimension to gameplay, adding magic to Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars and the world of Mythador. Arcana brings with it powerful wizards to recruit, earth-shattering spells to research and cast, towering Wizard Guild buildings to construct and much more.

The free Arcana expansion is just the latest addition to an ever growing game and is a way for the development team to give back to the community that has supported us over the years.

Free Siegeworks Expansion

This massive expansion greatly enhances the gameplay experience by putting a strong emphasis on expanding the game world twice over - adding sixteen new siege ready towns and variety of new units. In addition, Siegeworks introduces new Guild Alliances feature, completely redesigned combat and pathfinding control system.

And the best part this expansion is absolutely free! This is a way for us to give back to the community that has supported us over the years.

About This Game

Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars is the first full 3D MMORTS with real-time siege combat. Offering an evolving online environment, in which you will be gathering resources, constructing buildings and walls, directing your citizens, completing quests in the service of mighty nobles and fiendish rogues, and managing your economy - all within an online realm that grows, works, lives, and breathes even when you log off. All this is glorious 3d world with stunning level of detail and epic scale - with vibrant towns and thousand strong armies. And of-course let’s not forget the glorious siege battles all in real-time! Developed by Reverie World Studios, Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars is the result of several years of hard work by a new Toronto based studio, with members all over the world contributing in their spare time.


Innovative MMORTS Approach
  • Wage war with neighboring regions or complete countless hours of quests as you unveil the dark secrets of Terria while managing a persistent kingdom and economy with thousands of other players. Socialize, trade, forge alliances and - best of all - battle against other players across the world, defeat their armies, and burn their towns!
Multiple Games Modes
  • Two additional singleplayer modes - including open-ended World Conquest mode - Kingdom Wars, and content-packed single-player Skirmish mode with both Lay Siege and Castle Defense maps - guaranteed to satisfy players of various tastes and gameplay styles.
Stunning Siege Combat
  • User-friendly Siege-oriented gameplay adds a whole new dimension to the battlefield as you ram the enemy gate, scale the walls, and place automated defensive systems, such as: stone tippers, boiling oil, and wall-mounted catapults.
Three Distinct Races & Styles of Gameplay
  • Dawn of Fantasy features three distinct civilizations: Elves, Orcs and Men, presenting a unique approach to these iconic races with three distinct styles of gameplay. Each race is complete with its own lore, language, world region and terrain, dozens of distinct units and buildings, hundreds of unique technologies, and each even has a different approach to economy and building style.
Fully 3D Dynamic World Map
  • Travel the MMORTS world using a beautifully-designed 3D World Map featuring scale replicas of all the NPC strongholds, quest areas, and the player's homeland.
Original Base Building Approach
  • Each player’s Stronghold features hundreds of buildings that look and behave like a City-Simulation game, but without any micro-management, giving the player more time to spend on the battlefield. In addition each race offers a different approach to building strongholds.
Complex Economic Model with Corpse Looting
  • Combines the complexity of nearly a dozen gathering possibilities, different for each race, with automated simplicity, allowing players the options to micromanage their economy, or leave it to run itself in times of war.
Realistic Weather and Season Change
  • The gaming world comes alive as you build and battle during winter or summer months, as you push your armies through heavy rain or snow storms. Your economy significantly changes from summer to winter, when different strategic options are available during different times of day and severe weather makes certain units useless.

Very well done game. I seen youtube videos and these guys have been around for years updating this game and it's only been getting better and better as I have seen. It's very worth the money and building a kingdom in this one is very fun seeing there's lots of quest that keep ya busy and crowns you have to gain or buy with money you make from cattle or chopping trees and gold and stone mines. I like the experience and upgrading units. I've been on many hours since I started and there's so much more for me to go. Just now got a powerfull dragon and have been burning up lots of enemies.

I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't know if my kingdom(shack with some smaller shacks next to it) is good nor do I know the lore but I'm loving every minute I play of this game.

What the page doesn't actually tell you, something that I was stung by, is the presence of a real life cash shop in the game (where you can buy one of the strongest units in the game, dragons for instance, as well as various "pay-to-win" instances)

As such I would recommend some further research into this game before purchasing.

Edit: This may no longer be true as per my post on the comments section of this original post.
