Okay sooo i quited at 84lvl. I really enjoyed the game in the past BUT now at these levels when i`ve ranked up all buildings to the max and most of fortifications(didnt spend a cent btw) there's nothing to do than spending money to upgrade units in the command bunker which costs 4.000.000 or maybe a lot more + 20 days(?!?!!) of wait time??? Also its IMPOSSIBLE to gather that much when at around 500.000 i get attacked and lose money. Only camo will do the trick, but still not worth spending gold bars for it. It's embarrassing when you almost fully fortified your buildings and every attacker STILL destroys your base at 95%+++. Like really??I`ve made it this far to get stomped like that? Even units glitch most of the time when they cant reach the specific target and they start to run around which results in a huge fail/loss. Nonoooo... i won`t recommend it for sure. First it was somewhat cool but now its only a waste of time.

PS: Those 4 charges of Artillery Strikes in the communication center building is a disgrace. GG enemy base

This is basically the same thing as Clash of Clans except for the fact that this has a WWII time zone with different types of characters in it.

It can be enjoyable for a few first weeks, but sooner or later you simply hit the line where you can't gather enough resources for upgrading before being attacked by another player.
Lately, there have been some updates, which actually worsened gameplay a lot for me. Random disconnecting being even more frequent, for example. Oh and I got an alliance application bug, so now I can't enter or leave any. The window just tells me to wait.
I am going to wait, then. Elsewhere.

Cons:
- pay to win, of course
- terrible controls; obviously an adapted touchscreen game. Clicking the buttons with mouse is incredibly frustrating.
- lots of bugs. The game often disconnects.
- inequality of the players. The ability to fight each other is only limited by rating ("dog tags"), not by your levels. This allows a lvl 80 player attack a lvl 20 player.

Now you can play Clash of Clans on your PC - with different skins - and less to do.

or, say, anything else on Steam that's better.

It teaches the best lesson about war: You will fight others only for resources. If you have no resources left you will seek for a new enemy and fight again. Isn't that what war is all about?

Oh, and you can invest tons of your earned cash to be superior.

I actually uninstalled this game witin half an hour of playing it. This is basically a PC rip off of Boom Beach designed for iPhone. It is boring, uninspirational and if you were to enjoy it in the slightest of ways, then you would need to be using their premium currency.

This game is kind of fun and have spent hours playing it. Ultimately though it is a giant time sink with insane times to upgrade and ultimately will require money to get anywhere. It's a lot like Boom Beach but with way less balance and is ultimately ruined once you reach higher levels. Also the top 100 board is almost all bots. This is completely ignored by the creators and the more time goes on the more I think the bots belong to the people who actually made the game in an attempt to make it artificially competitive though they will never aknowledge many of the top 100 alliances are bots. You can look at individual players and one alliance has twice the listed dog tags (victory points) than all the players added togther. It's one thing to have the game be set up so that it ultimately requires money, it's another to try to absolutely deceive the player about the game to obtain it.

More Cons: The game is ultimately broken on so many levels. One major flaw that they have never fixed is the fact that when your troops land they very often will get stuck in spots and run in circles or just stop moving all together. You can't control the troops after they land (unlike Boom Beach) so there is nothing you can do. You also can be raided by any level and most high level people will because it's a very cheap and efficient way to build vicotory points to raise your ranking. When teams start to figure out which alliances are bots that are artificially propped up the admins just add additional dog tags to them as a team total (that doesn't match the individual player totals) and the cycle continues.

Recap: The game is super bugged. MUST spend money after a certain point. The developers deceive the players with tons of fake accounts (they seem to be almost half of all players), the game constantly crashes. If you check it out and like the concept, play the game this rips off and download Boom Beach on iOS or other platform for a fair and balanced free to play game.

just waste of time... played it for about 40 minutes and noticed that the computer controlled soldiers were dumb as hell. in my experience the forces faced their opponents like they were sentenced to death - not even a chance to micro them correctly. and the thing with the resources is that you have to pay for it when its depleted or wait loads of time until it has recovered. what a surprise... was the last time i tried a f2p game: never ever again.
