Changelog - Tuesday, October 14th

Hotfix, Build #29871

• More AI tweaks.
• Units that were previously breaking the deployment grid (namely the Hover Platform and Supply Drop) now require a double-click in order to deploy. There are some visual issues remaining (particularly with Hover Platform) but the actual functionality should work now.
• Some map tweaks.
• Icons for some units may require a double-click to make them disappear, but they should disappear after the unit starts the animation of the attack.

About This Game

The year is 1947. The world lies ravaged by war. Align yourself with one of six warring factions and fight for global domination in a world where borders rapidly shift as battles are won and lost.

This is March of War. An online turn-based strategy game set in a dieselpunk world where strategy and firepower rule the day. Take command and lead your army into 3D battlefields that allow you to assess the war-zone from every angle. Deploy a wide range of vehicles, infantry and artillery where their specific weapons can be most effective.

Destroy your enemies and capture their territory to advance through the ranks of your faction. Rise high enough and you’ll have the honour of joining your faction’s High Command, or perhaps even be voted Faction Leader. Achieving High Command or Faction Leader status expands the game into an intricate web of political allegiances and betrayals, where your decisions directly influence the course of the war as you strive to lead your faction to global domination.

    Key Features Include

  • Tactical warfare - Play smart and dirty to conquer this war-torn dieselpunk world.
  • Choose what you fight for - The six factions are very distinct. Who will you be loyal to?
  • Multiplayer gameplay - Players are waiting worldwide. Join a co-op or PvP and march on.
  • Start your own fights – Skirmish lets you set up custom battles for a new challenge or just for fun.
  • Realistic 3D battlefields – Watch the fireworks as your forces clash with the enemy across landscapes ranging from jungles to deserts.
  • A mix of classic and exotic units - Will a Sherman tank stand up to a Warbeast?
  • Between battles – Build up your army, form battle groups, and research new weapons and abilities.

Garbage, money hungry bogas games to suck the money out of kids. This game is complete garbage. Pay to win, fun at first but pretty much Just cheSs with gun attached. You could spend up to 1:20 minutes every turn waiting for an oppenet to make a move. If you'rE Winning you better prepare to wait a long time. If this was an RTS it would most likely be worth while but it just not.

Game is noob. When is in beta version and it was good to play but now with the update making npc battles even to difficult. Your start with limited resources while the npc start with double resources and kill you at the 4th turn. The game modes assault,blitz and siege is not much choice. Pvp battles you meet unbalance matchmaking. This game has made a good start when is in beta and then it become bad with every new update. Pros: free game and easy to play. Cons: no anticheat,bugs, votescam on factionleaders, unbalance pvp battle. This game deserve 6/10 and is not worth to play. I see other RTS games which is better then March Of War in gameplay. The positieve reviews are from MOW veterans and friends of the MOW creators to promote this game.

The basic concept is interesting, gameplay is interesting and deep, various factions offer several approach. It would have been a cool take on turn by turn strategy game if...

... the business model wasn't based on you buying every single unit with cash (in game or real) before being able to deploy them.
i.e. If you have access to a new type of tank, you'll have to buy it before being able to field it. And if you bought it once, you'll be able to field it once. So far, no problem. But if that tank gets destroyed, you'll have to "resupply", or buy it again. It takes 4 to 6 games to buy ONE tier 2 units. Meaning that any loss in a fight will prevent you from developping your army for the next 4-10 games (depending on how advanced/expensive the unit was).
Worst, there is a cool idea of "action/strategy card" you can play in that game. Bonuses for you to buy whenever you want with dedicated ressources. Those are limited also, and using them is for good (if you have 3 "Kamikaze charge" and use one, you'll only have 2 left for any following next battle, unless you are lucky when getting your rewards or if you buy it again.
Over time, the grind only serve to make you "build back" what you lose, instead of allowing you to develop something long term.

Cool game, destroyed by a shop that's a bit too aggressive.

This game is terrible. Please don't even download this game. It is hardly a strategy game. Don't even give the developers the pleasure of knowing that someone downloaded this game. There is no strategy and the AI spawns random unites across this map. I would rather stare at poop all day than play this game for 10 minutes. Leave it alone.

I recommend this game only to people who are patient and like to take things slow. Here's why.
Pros:
1) Unique factions with unique units.
2) Simple and easy to play, but learning curve is a bit steep.
3) Helpful and friendly community.
4) Great tutorial, complete with videos and FAQs.
5) Helpful and responsible development team always tending to player needs.

Cons:
1) Has a number of bugs and glitches that sometimes affect matches.
2) Many maps favour the player that has first move. Near impossible to win as 2nd
3) Moderate amount of grind.

This game starts out rough, you need to find the tutorial (Question mark button) and learn the basics slowly. Tactics and other features might need you to ask other players and learn from them ( Highly advised). This part is especially important, when you start out, DO NOT GO TO PVP. Almost none of the low leveled players jump right into pvp, thus most of these low leveled pvpers get matched to higher leveled players. Needless to say, they don't win much. Many players have complained about this and posted negative reviews on this, when it is entirely thier fault. When starting out it is advised to grind pve matches until level 18-20. This game is really bumpy when you start out but once you level up and unlock all the units available, it gets really enjoyable. If you are willing to grind for a bit and like games that get more fun over time, this is a good game for you. Hope this helps, this is after all my first review.

This is my in-depth review after playing with every faction in the game, not only there are 6 factions to choose from, but there is also politics involved, I'll just point out the pros and cons of every faction so people looking at this can just play the game for fun or for political reasons. The opinion about being High command can vary, ranging from being a political patriot to a rogue traitor or spy. I'll write my long story short versions of each faction.


United Republic (North America): This faction, aimed at having good-various kinds of aircraft and artillery while being moderate in most departments.


European Alliance (All of Europe and Australia/New zealand): This faction, has average infantry but in return, very nice tanks and toys. This is also the biggest faction in the game player base wise, making their high command the hardest to get into.


Soviet Union: This faction has below average infantry, in return not only they get great walkers, but also one of the best aircraft in the game. The walkers require no deployment and can fire at the players will/desire, propoganda is also used to boost unit firepower :).


Shogun Empire (All of asia and most of the islands): This faction is one of the two infantry based factions, not only does it have paper tanks (except for the akuma class land battleship), it also specializes in being a fire happy/lover faction.


The Latin Junta (All of South and central America): The 2nd infantry based faction, unlike the shogun empire, junta vehicles are expensive and while some may be paper, other units not so much. This faction also specializes in toxic and chemical warfare, while they have good infantry, drawback is the infantry are frail.


African Warlords (All of africa and middle east): The beast faction, this soley focuses on being a beast specialist and improvised vehicles and weapons, even an improvised aircraft. The biggest thing that stands out here is the warlords "overlord" beast unit. If you like animals, this is the faction to join.


Conclusion: The faction units change (By the unit balancing department by the devs) every month or so. No matter who you join, each faction will have its pros and cons, as well as different communities (and political parties).

Can find me ingame by the name Aceman if you wish to reach me ^^

So, it has pretty good mechanics, balancing and variety of units. All the factions are very different and interesting. That's the good stuff.

On the down side, the combat gets old pretty quick: the PvE is too easy, and not very rewarding, even on the hardest difficulties. The PvP is slow and frustruating as you don't get to see the opponents moves, only the result, meaning your units are dead and you have no idea how or why.

The worst part of this game is the "free to play" model is really pushed hard, micro transations feature prominantly the minute you load up the game and without them the tech tree advancement and unit purchasing take forever.

Take a pass on this one.
