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.

I would rather wank with a rusty cheese grater than play this again.

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.

The paywall in this game is more subtle than most Pay-to-Win games, but it's there, and it's absolutely impenetrable. Don't bother unless you feel like tossing $50+ into what is basically a glorified smartphone game.
