Short Stories: Kingdom Mismanagement

Short Story: Kingdom Mismanagement


I am in a relatively young Kingdom that is ruled by an alliance that really, truly cares nothing about winning KvK KE. There is little to no preparation or coordination work done before any event and that is just the beginning of the problem…

While it’s a common theme to have a purge before a Kill Event our king, almost to spite other aspiring Alliances, will declare Free For All (FFA) battle one day prior to an event and run it right into the KvK KE. The king’s alliance will attack anyone and everyone except his allied alliances that will submit to doing the same… even attacking other strong players and alliances that could be quite integral to a victory in a kill event.

On our last KvK KE one week ago we’d had peace for longer than I’d known it in our kingdom and I believed things had begun to change. I was a 1.6B Power Rally Trap that scores fairly well in our KvKs so I wasn’t overly concerned with needing to be shielded… Suffice it to say I left the game for a time only to come back to find a kings allied Alliance that I had never once attacked and have had good dealings with had wasted around 17M T4 trying to zero my account… I have to say I was quite pissed off but I probably should have shielded… I was also a little proud as I carried an amount of meat shield that never allowed them to reach my T4, take my Hero and in fact took their Heroes several times on Rallies. At the very least I stayed in Colossus gear before leaving the game with no shield. I was heavily damaged and spent most of the event trying to do a quick thrown together rebuild to participate, and I did, but it didn’t go as well for me personally as I’m accustomed.

Overall I can’t be too mad at anyone but myself but still… FFA leading up to and running into KvK KE is absurd to me.

I would like to hear your absurd kingdom mismanagement stories in the comments section.

    cartierlovejesduas True, that’s what my JW aunt told me when I called her in the phone years back. She said the whole congregation is willing to lie, falsely testify and take note “do whatever it takes” to protect the organization’s reputation. They actually think that by harassing the old woman who served as my witness in court, that they are doing job a great favor but we know better and we know that soon Jehovah God would soon set matters straight and only terror will make them understand. I cannot count how many times they tried to cheat in court, harass and force the poor old woman against her will. It is terrifying to think about the things that our so called brothers and sisters are willing to do to protect the abusive elders from facing justice. My own JW relatives who personally witnessed the abuse done to me testified against me in court! Just awesome! I think they forgot that their God is supposed to be Jehovah and not some group of criminal men!

    My Kingdom used to have a kingdom wide nap except during purges right before KVK.  And we won ALOT of KVK events because of it.  Then we merged with a kingdom that has a real asshole alliance which attacks everyone and as a result our KVK performances suffered.  It’s stupid for alliances to constantly zero their own kingdom when together they could be dominating all the other kingdoms.

    I’m in 136, we absorbed 38. Unfortunately. We had a very good kingdom before that did awesome in KVK KE’s. Most from 38 are pretty good, except for the one main alliance, FUN. They’re terrible. If you are cleaning your farms out, they will port in and hit you. I’m OK with tile popping anyone unshielded but they won’t even let anyone gather gold.  They care only about Super Wonder and zeroing people.  Which wouldn’t be so bad if they were any good at KVK KE but they’re absolutely terrible. They love to hit traps and give out more points than they gain. No surprise they haven’t managed to dethrone StayAlive in the SW, they don’t even know how to fight in a KVK KE.

    Check out K370 sometime. We’ve had an ongoing feud with $$ in this kingdom. On several occasions we have tried to come to an agreement on a kingdom wide ceasefire for kvk but they will not agree to it. They have actually teamed up with the other alliance and double rallied us, given titles to Outlanders, etc, etc. Best part of it is that we as an alliance have become stronger, more powerful and regularly kick their ***** at the wonder.

    BTW, we had the best time when MZ included killing troops within your own alliance during a kvk ke a couple months ago.

    Nice try…

    Thinking this over it’s not the fact that you have a FFA but the fact that you develop tactics to win. You are used to zeroing billions and that requires a good knowledge of cores and battle statistics. You want to zero the person by losing the least amount of troops. You also get good at defending. So wonder holding is easier as well. The kingdoms in FFA have set ups for zeroing and attacking. They can coordinate themselves efficiently to do the most damage to their enemy. That’s the only fact. This usually turns out to more points and giving less. You don’t have those people who have troops laying around or their hero for that matter. But this depends on how smart the people in the kingdom are. This only applies if the kingdom does not waste troops needlessly. But there are many other tactics to use. I’m trying out one in my next KVK. Might work, might not. Don’t know if I will post it if it works cause then people will look out for it. But in theory, the person will be destroyed. Their power or troop count will not affect this unless they are like Stayalive. Cause he’s not getting zeroed anytime soon.

    When there are no kvk kes is when power alliances get bored and start demolishing anyone they can get their hands on in the kingdom. What else are u going to do with a hundred million troops? It’s time for MZ to end this protected kingdom BS and make kvk kE a 24/7 affair or at least have many more kvk kes, not just the one a week that seems to be the pattern now. Alliances in a kingdom would have to work together for self-preservation and there would always be plenty of targets to hit in all the other kingdoms. This is game of war, people want to fight so until there are more chances to “kill outlanders” kingdoms will continue to burn themselves since those are the only people you can fight 95% of the time.

      That would be something cool.  Have the coliseum open 24/7 with a kill event bonus everyday so if people want to fight they can port there.  At least have it open there is not a KVK KE.

    “But as this is Game of War, I suppose that it is by design supposed to mimic and act as a microcosm of real life.”

    You don’t know how right you are.

    Just as in real life, there will always be those who can only define “fun” in their own terms, and that expect that everybody ELSE needs to conform to their expectations to maximize their own experiences. Those that don’t get given some really horrible labels (troll, psychopath, douchebag, etc).

    I’ve spent a fair bit of time in a kingdom with a constant NAP, and in one with a constant FFA (by mutual agreement of the top alliances). I settled, and chose to spend my money, in the latter. Rather than pounding my head against everybody else, trying to get them to play the way *I* wanted them to, I deliberately chose a place where I’d have more fun. Imagine that…taking charge of my own entertainment.

    This might shock some of you, but in-kingdom fights and rivalries can be FUN. I’m not a huge fan of KvK KE’s, personally….everything becomes about points, and you’re dealing with total strangers, instead of with the people I talk to every day, form rivalries with, and alternately love and hate. We do just fine in KEs, and we also enjoy ourselves quite a bit in-between the KEs. We’re not psychopaths, that’s simply how we’ve chosen to play. Don’t like it? Well, our kingdom may not be the right place for you…there are plenty that have what you’re looking for.

    In my experience, all a kingdom-wide NAP works out to be is an endless drama-fest. Who broke the NAP? Who has proof? Who’s going to recriminate and deny and chastise in KC? What are people going to do with it? Hell with all that…to me, that level of drama is actively ANTI-fun. I knew I wasn’t going to be happy in that kingdom within the first few days, and I left.

    KEs are only the “main event” because MZ spends a lot of time telling us they are And why shouldn’t they? They generate revenue….they stimulate pack purchases, get people to use up their troops and their cores; KEs are an awesome deal for MZ.

    If you prefer a peaceful kingdom and a more structured KE, ok, cool…that’s certainly a valid preference and a valid playstyle. Find a kingdom that does that, and have fun…having fun IS why you’re here, after all. But try to remember that some people prefer a more constant state of war, prefer experiencing it with neighbors, rather than strangers, and are playing GoW because that’s pretty much what it says on the tin.

    Their style isn’t any more wrong than yours, and it most certainly isn’t psychopathic by default.

    Although respectively as follows
    Protect your investments by all means neccesary whether your Spender or Non-Spender. Whether you choose to shield or “Defend” your Sh is entirely up to you. How you go about doing it is also entirely up to you. You are solely responsible for your own belongings. If found unshielded I myself will attempt and most likely “0” you and kill the hero. If it’s a friendly I will attempt to get them online by all means neccesary i.e Fake Rallies, Trades, Scout Bombs. If they fail to respond they will be zeroed and hero taken and returned when the player returns. Rss = Continued growth & Strength either for me or my enemy. Tile hitting is banned kingdom wide unless it’s in preparation for kve (purge).

    I am in one of the oldest kingdoms in the game…K8.  There has not been peace in this kingdom since the merge.  Was in K6 before that and there had not been peace for a year or more.  There are around 10 alliances in K8 that are capable of zeroing anyone under 5B power and will if they catch someone unshielded.  tbh I think it helps us in KVK because everyone in K8 understands - shield or die.  We have been dominant in KVK events since the merge.  Once there is enough power in the kingdom it makes sense to be constantly at war…it weeds out all of the weak players who forget to shield and it gets rid of the easy points in kvk kill events.

    You know, Leadfoot makes an excellent point.  Just like his, our kingdom is basically on burn mode at all times, and we just won a 4-way kill event, won the kill event before that one, and before that, we placed 3rd in a 10-way against a lot of strong kingdoms.  We used to be all about a kingdom NAP and we NEVER won a kill event.  We lost so many kill events early on, many in our kingdom just expected to lose.  We came up against a dead kingdom with maybe 20 multi-billion accounts and EVERYONE else zeroed.  It was depressing to see a dead kingdom like that.  We won most of our rallies, held both wonders the entire kill event and expected to get our first KE win.  It didn’t happen.  Why?  We had mass targets that gave up points, they had almost zero.

      I think as an earlier kingdom not even in KVKs yet, NAP is very effective when it comes to growing power and training members. If your in an older kingdom, FFA 24/7 is the way to go. By then many players should know to shield and have the ability to do so. But in the beginning there are not many gold temples, not even close enough for the small non-spenders to be able to shield 24/7. My view is that unless you are an older kingdom don’t have 24/7 killing sprees. Until you get to KVKs you should allow the small players to amass gold and troops to be effective. Players may be encouraged to buy packs since they know they are not guaranteed to lose everything. After KVKs start, remind them to shield, and start FFA. This will remove players that don’t spend enough time on to continue or the ones who refuse to listen. In my kingdom people don’t get enough gold to shield. Once KVKs start though they have easier access to gold. I think this could make a difference in kvk effectiveness. But I guess we can’t hold our blood lust for that long.

    All good points. Our Kingdom (218), just went through the merge, and the top 5 alliances still battle constantly, either to take and hold the wonder, or they simply find “excuses” to go to war.
    As one player pointed out, KVK KE is the ONLY event where we are REWARDED for doing battle.
    IMAGINE….if a kingdom actually worked on developing ALL players, even small ones, to be effective in battle events. I’d love to hear from players that are in kingdoms that they feel are run properly, and hear how they manage the kingdom.

      I’d love to as well, but they just don’t exist.  Even mine where we’ve had one single alliance hold wonder, it’s still crazy. Partly because they just hit anyone not a friend at any time, and then post it’s time to purge.  So they win our KVKs, but do nothing to help anyone else.  That’s not good leadership, it’s selfish.

        K70 (Orion) was like that before the merge. We rotated the top 5 or 6 alliances for holding the wonder, and there was a universally followed top 10 alliance NAP, and no tiling whatsoever, period. I could drop 6 matches on lvl 6 gold tiles and go to sleep and they’d come home every single time.

        We had a purge pre-kill event, but each alliance was responsible for purging their own members. Alliances outside the top 10 weren’t trusted to do it, so a top 10 one they were friendly with did it for them. It worked for us for a very long time. I think we lost 2 kill events in the last calendar year? A big part of that was that it was friendly and very few players were American, like I am. Aussies and kiwis are apparently much more rational than Americans, and they made up the majority of players in Orion. May sound like an unfair blanket assumption, but it held as accurate for like 18 months. My other kingdom hadn’t gotten peace together until the last 4 months before our merge after 2+ years of fighting for no reason. So it can be done. It just takes enough willing, rational, and friendly players that don’t get off on ruining other people’s fun.

  • In Tasselis we are a mess. I forget the Kingdom number off the top of my head. Either way I started an account in there because my research was taking forever on my other two accounts in Yaron. When I started in Tasselis the two top Alliances were already in a war but had a Kingdom wide NAP. There was one player that did not care and just hit everyone anyways but it was just really him. He always released the hero and did not try to zero any player. But things soon dissolved. At some point my alliance fell apart
    . I joined a new one and was an R4 due to my experience. We had a pretty active alliance going even though it was small. Now I was not a kingdom chatter at all, but that soon changed. I also had access to the kingdom rules chat. Apparently there were more people breaking the NAP then I though. So the ruling alliance got rid of it. Pretty sure there was a no tile hitting rule though. But things still worked at the moment. We merged with a bigger alliance and I was still R4. At this time I was a huge kingdom chatter and did everything to help my alliance. I was 1 million power, half in troops. I was never hit and usually shielded when I could. Made a farm the abandoned it at that time. Then things got really bad.
    The top 10 alliances started hitting anyone not shielded. Though only stronghold 10 and up. Now we started having problems. I usually got the hero’s back but when I took a look around I saw so many big empires deserted. 100 million powers gone this was in the first two months. We have lost so many Potential people that could help in the KVKs. Even Billions are not safe. One person told me they lost 20 million T4 troops. WHAT!!! The amount of money spent in my kingdom on troops could easily let us win the KVKs. If we did not hit each other. There are so many inactive its not even funny. Tile hitting is common now too. Only way to survive is to pay or be in a really good alliance. My alliance $~D has a few buyers but they are still new to the game. We are close nit though. I come and go as I please since I have 2 accounts in the alliance, one farm and one bank, Along with another account in a different alliance. My main account is officially part of $~D but I visit join many alliances. I can gain access to any alliance. I help when I can. So I have 4 accounts in that kingdom alone.
    Now things have leveled off in a chaotic way. It’s still a giant free for all but in a nice way. Kingdom chat can be fun with the right people but some people who come on are bad. Usually starts a 3 hour arguement. Actually once, when they were arguing how no one hits them or they don’t have the ba!!s to rally. I came in yelling in all caps that no one will hit them cause they are all set to eat a rally and take the hero. I quote “The reason you won’t hit them is the same reason why they won’t hit you. The reason why no one will rally you is because you’re all set to eat a rally and take the hero. God.” Something like that. Needless to say they all laughed at it and shut up.
    I think I detracted from the main point of my comment. Anyways it’s a free for all, we lost way too many troops, and I’m pretty sure if you were a trap you would not be safe. It kind of sucks. But it’s fun. If you want to try your luck here come on by. Either shield 24/7 or give up on troop training. Reply if you want to give a go.
    Wow I don’t think the end of my comment was what I planned at the beginning. Oh well.

    It’s boredom.  Expect more of it as troops get cheaper and cheaper.  Expect more fighting between big alliances, too.  If you have 2 billion T4 between 5 accounts, who cares about losing 3mil in a rally? 

    And if you’re 3bil and under, getting zeroed isn’t a huge deal like it used to be.  1 pack will probably rebuild everything lost, plus lots of cores for payback.  This was something MZ was going for the whole time.  Something they probably weren’t going for was spenders like me who quit spending because of the rampant inflation, but that’s another story.

    Like King of IT, our kingdom, #414, has not had any type of NAP.  To the contrary, it’s shield or be zeroed in our kingdom.  We also typically dominate KVKs (when the SW isn’t open at least)—for instance the last tournament we were 16-0 at one point.  I don’t think these two items are independent—our players stay shielded during KVK because they have been conditioned during the week to shield or be zeroed.  NAPs only reinforce lazy behavior, in my opinion, and the proof is in our kingdom’s performance in KvK.

      You guys are the exception then, not the rule.

      Kingdoms that work together and keep it friendly and fun are more successful in my experiences in multiple kingdoms. Kingdoms that behave like yours, mine, and the storyteller’s (OP didn’t seem quite accurate lol) burn bridges and turn a friendly game into actual hatred for certain players or alliances. Real-time games like this elicit real emotion and real physiological responses, just like a sport or serious hobby (taking a rally causes a release of very real adrenaline for example. Obviously sports/hobbies tend to require more physical skill/hand-eye coordination, etc.)

      In my kingdom that we recently joined as a result of losing our merge event, there was already an alliance full of trolls and sociopaths, so the troll/sociopath alliance from out kingdom allied with the existing one to go against the rest of us. I’m in the most powerful alliance, so they’re really an annoyance, but I don’t hate them any less because of it. And we’ll happily burn them during a kill event, because they’ve used all of our goodwill up running their mouths.

      My point is: don’t be a douche just for the sake of being a douche. You may get off on someone else’s misery, but there’s likely going to be a point where you’ve made so many real enemies that hate you so much they’ll rally you anytime you’re unshielded, no matter what they lose, and with like half a dozen exceptions that live in the middle east, there’s always someone who will spend more than you.

        Perhaps we are the exception to the rule, perhaps we are not.

        When I ask around during KvK, and when I talk to other players in other kingdoms, it seems to me that KvK performance is directly proportional to the amount of aggression shown in the kingdom during the week.  And while NAP might be helpful during the growing stages of the kingdom, it quickly becomes a crutch to learning how to hit and be hit in this game (where the real learning is), or stay shielded to protect your troop power.

        But it’s more than simply learning to shield or die.  Take me, for example.  I’m a rally trap, and trust me when I say none of you want to try to rally this 2b player.  How did I become so confident in my abilities?  I learned by eating rally after rally after rally during the week, and burning (and learning) more than a few times in the process.

        That said, I agree with you, Andy, to a certain extent—don’t be a douche just to be a douche.  In our kingdom, we are aggressive, but we don’t really troll each other—just a mutual respect for the kill-or-be-killed credo our kingdom has had for almost a year now.  Those same enemies during the week coordinate their efforts during KvK—and that’s the key.  But we go into it with all that experience that NAP kingdoms don’t have, and our results show it.

        Said a bit differently, you’ll never learn to be good at GoW behind a shield or on a tile—you have to fight to learn, and NAPs get in the way of this process and retard your growth as a kingdom when it comes to KvK.

    The alliance I am in has no NAPs and no allays so basically we attack anyone and get attacked by anyone.
    If you are under 6/7bilion power stay shielded if you are not online!
    If you are under 1,5b stay shielded period!
    After we adopted this FFA24/7 we started to win KVK kill events, but hope you guys won’t do that, more for us to kill in kvk!

    Ive been in #350 Camia for over a year. We are a mature and medium population kingdom. Since the beginning of Camia, the kingdom has been dominated (or tried to be dominated) by one alliance. This particular alliance is headed up by two very high spending players that have some internal need for self aggrandizement and because of this they cannot see the forest for the trees. And thus the opportunity for teamwork and camaraderie is lost.

      It seems obvious that if a kingdom works together, they should be able to do well in kvk ke events and we seem to hold our own. But we fall way short of what I think we are capable of due to this overriding internal struggle for control by this one main alliance. We spend way too much money and time defending and fighting this alliance and our smaller players suffer the most. Where we could be growing and teaching smaller players how to trap cheaply and effectively and building more solid rally teams, our kingdom often devolves into kingdom chat fights and solid rally leaders getting damaged in internal Camia battles or worse, zeroed.

      It is to the point where many Camians are almost hoping to be merged with a larger kingdom in hopes that this bad apple alliance will either be tamed or crushed.

      But as this is Game of War, I suppose that it is by design supposed to mimic and act as a microcosm of real life.

    I am so sick of hearing “it’s a game of WAR” as an excuse for people being stupid. KVK KE is the MAIN EVENT in this game. To do well in it you need a Kingdom that works together to win, and wasting a ridiculous amount of troops attempting to zero an account that would bring a TON of points in KVK KE is beyond absurd. 17M T4 would have been worth 1.7BILLION!!!! points during a points per kill KVK or 612Million points on a power destroyed (with no multiplier). But yeah, go ahead and keep destroying your Kingdom so you are one of the ones swallowed up in a Kingdom Merge event down the road.

    Have you ever heard of NAP in Clash of Clans? Game of War was intended to be just that—a game of war. There are far too many complaints about ruling alliances and their tactics. Even with the game of war “How to Play” section, you will find evidence that tile hitting and dig site attacks are fair game…please try to have more fun. Protect yourself at all times and ENJOY the WAR!

      I’m tired of people leaning on the, ‘It’s called ‘Game of War’ for a reason….’  Meh, if they’re taking that stance, it should renamed ‘Game of Spenders.’ In truth, it’s only that in name and in 1 portion of gameplay. I spent a very little amount and am enjoying myself not hitting tiny accounts or tile hitting.  Tile hitting may be “Fair game,” but it’s still a douchy move, and that’s the hard truth.

      Our kingdom always does well in KVK.  We have purge and all that, but honestly, MZ has f’d up in balancing this game.  They’re making hand-over-fist so they don’t give a $h1t about non-spenders.  From biz side, why should they?  There’s a lot MZ needs to fix before majority or players can even think about KVK.

    I don’t find it surprising that a young kingdom would find little value in preparing for KE. MZ has continued to place more value on the research/train events along with the super wonder.  In fact several recent KEs have actually been coliseum events and limited to only those who could afford gold packs.  The lack of transparency in the tournament process and overall scoring system adds to the lack of focus. 

    MZ attenpted to add another element of interest to the KE with the addition of wonder scoring but the new research restrictions for passing the kingship limited the participation to a select few. 

    MZ continues introduce new features and emphasize the “strategy” of KE preparation but still gives the smallest KVK prize for KE and refuses to base leaderboards on points earned.  In fact often the leaderboard contains at least one player that fell asleep in research gear and was zeroed.  Not much preparation required for that.

    In my opinion, MZ needs to refocus on improving the KE experience for all players.  Beginning with basing victory on power destroyed not troops killed (Flames should mean something).  Base leaderboards on points earned (I want to know who the best player really is).

      I completely agree with you K98 Lady.  You shouldn’t’ be rewarded for falling asleep and racking up points.  There should be a KVKKE once a week.  Going 3-4 weeks without one is absurd and frustrating especially for a player like myself that really only plays for Kill Events.  MZ is truly about the $$ but people keep buying so who’s to blame ? 

      Also, has anyone noticed how bad the prizes have become for infernos and Kingdom events lately.  The points you need have tripled or quadrupled and the rewards have become rediculously horrible.

      MZ need a player leadership board that communicates directly with them on specific Kingdom issues and concerns with those conversations being transparent so all players can see what transpires.

      Thanks,

    In K324 there is an alliance called V$  they only want spenders in the kingdom and there is someone event on LINE app kingdom chat that said that.  If you have lower power even 1 Bill is lower power to them you get talked down in kingdom chat and if you don’t spend.  Also in KE if you take time off to be with family or have a real life you get talked down to because even if you don’t score 100 mil points in kingdom KE only get to tier 1 or 2 you are consider worthless to the kingdom like you didn’t participate.  But yet in V$ eyes they do no wrong.
