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

Steam Greenlight

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 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

Kingdom Wars is a free to play 3D MMORTS with real-time siege combat, without the pay to win element so common in the genre. Having evolved from Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars this strategy game offers lively online world, where players gather resources, construct majestic towns, and impregnable strongholds, direct citizens, complete quests in the service of mighty nobles and fiendish rogues, and eventually manage a global empire. All within an online realm that grows, works, lives, and breathes even when you log off. All this in 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, Kingdom Wars is the result of several years of hard work by a new Toronto based studio, with members all over the world.


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!
Not Pay to Win
  • With Kingdom Wars free to play release our goal was to create a game of skill, not bigger wallets. We have followed player suggestions and tried to avoid the common pay2win traps. In Kingdom Wars majority of micro-transaction only effect cosmetic changes or unlock bonus content, that does not effect game progress and player interaction. All the other options are limited to one time use, to prevent anyone gaining unfair advantage.
Multiple Games Modes
  • Two additional singleplayer modes - including open-ended Campaign mode, 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
  • Kingdom Wars 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.

If you want to learn about this game this video is only gameplay footage and will tell/show you everything you need to know about it. It's basically a look at what you'll be playing and takes out all the reviewer fluff that they like to throw in.

Love this Game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 6 hours on record so far but i am loving the game. if you start with thte tutorial and then go to the online mode it is very easy to get the hang of. you do need a solid 2-3 hours to set up and get accustomed but well worth it i cant wait to play more. only thing i can say is that everything does take a while to complete from building houses to soldiers but not to bad.

It's a great concept and the idea of the game is interesting, but don't expect to engange in many PvP battles, more so it's rare when someone tries to attack your castle, which hasn't happened yet.

Your Troops fight in a squad and can actually level up and you get to chose from several different strenghs, such as how hard they hit and how much damange they can take. If you loose a sqaud of high level soilders it's not the end of the world but you feel bad.

The game is almost too slow to start, but after 5-6 hours you start to see the gold coming in. You might have read it's "pay to win". You can spend cash for crowns which buy's you the special units or upgrades, yet after you get established it's easy to build a bank of crowns. Your gold even starts to overflow to the point where a good portion of the time your lugging your troops around from town to town selling goods.

Whatever race you chose to play isn't a total lock, you can still buy units from the other races. One of the key factors is collecting your loot off of dead bodies, I strongly recomand getting Female Wardens from the elf race because you can simply select their duty to collect loot and they do it fast compared to human peasents.

The AI isn't great. They are going to attack is how they are going to attack. Generally they don't engage you till you engage them. If they try to flank it's a pre-determined before the game even starts. The AI doesn't adjust to the battlefield and what is going on. The AI will flank when basically you already broke the line.

Archers and Crossbow men are generally a strong staple of castle RTS'. They aren't effective. When you see 60-80 Archers on a castle ridge after a few times it doesn't make you turn your soilders around.

The big draw back besides the lack of PvP fights, which when they do happen are very laggy is the overall Missions of the game. Basically it's fighting a small group of soilders, or laying into a castle. Most of the missions are putting down rebel armies of peasents.

The developer has been putting out patches, but the game isn't new, so I'm not sure what the future holds in stock. If they make a second one, I think they will get the game right.

I enjoyed my time with the game, but with no real challange and a weak storyline that actually may not have a ending , it's hard to say "Yes" or "No" to the game. However, if your looking to play a RTS game and can't find one I would give it a shot, it did provide me several hours of gaming.
