It’s addicting in a bad way
by UNDEFEATD on 2017/11/22 06:43
I’ve played this game for 1 week and it’s frustrating to play with out having to use money.SO IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF MONEY THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU! I rate this game as 0 stars but it won’t let me input that
Starts out fun and games
by Nanhawk on 2017/11/22 05:25
Then things change so much if you miss a day it R two, you are totally lost. Not a fun game with all of the constant changes.
Money grabbing game
by DestroyMCOC on 2017/11/21 14:08
I’m at stronghold 21 and this game tells me I have to pay real money to for my stronghold to go higher levels and more money for my hero to go past level 60. I seen people with a stronghold level of 300 I’m guessing they spent hundreds of dollars which is something I will never do for any game. If I have to pay money to progress further and keep up with most then the game isn’t worth my time at all
Not the same
by INTWTF on 2017/11/21 12:48
Game always reboots. Always have to spend to get better. Just not the same. Think after 3 years time to quit the game.
Not free to play at all
by Skandragon on 2017/11/21 03:34
Sure, you can download the game and start it for free. However, to play in any reasonable way, you either spend over three billion days (not an exaggeration) to build buildings near level 37, or you buy speed ups. The makers of this game are just money grabbing. The inflation is so insane the numbers are difficult to imagine: one thousand trillion trillion. Don’t even start.
Not fun anymore
by Anitabelle on 2017/11/21 02:10
About 4 years ago when I first began playing I gave this game 5 stars AND a rave review. It was fun meeting new people. Growing and collaborating with fellow members to grow and have fun together. MZ only cares about the mighty dollar now and not the player. I have lost many friends and good players because of the insanely stupid upgrades some occurring daily. Do not even start this game unless you are willing to throw down $100.00 Every other day. Major disappointment.
Lost In Upgrades
by F!nnley0 on 2017/11/21 01:45
What happened!
Deceptive Advertising practices
by frontera jazz quartet on 2017/11/20 23:08
Great Game and tons of fun to play. Sometimes and it’s been happening to a lot of us lately aren’t getting what we pay for in these packs they sell. The purchased Pack could say it includes instant multiple researches so you buy the pack only to find out that it’s not working or wasn’t added to your account. The number and amount of upgrading is also getting out of hand. MZ does not give you the time to enjoy those upgrades you spent 100s of dollars on because they hit you with more 1 day later. Not saying it shouldn’t happen but slowing a bit down would make it more enjoyable. The upgrades are coming so fast now every is shielded half the time and so there’s no action. So about 80% you’re spending money and researching or upgrading. IMHO MZ developers are the biggest thieves. ReyChorizon.

by Tibmex on 2017/11/20 04:24
2-3 years ago this game was fun, very cool with nice people from all over the world. Then it started being all about money and this game went from best game to worst game I ever played. If you are ready to spend $99/month or more then this is your game, if not, pass your way.
Failure to communicate
by 😈 Lady ™ 😈 on 2017/11/20 03:46
Out of every game I've toiled with in my life I have to say this is the worst at communicating with a player. Machine Zone is a greedy corporation. I have a receipt from Apple showing I purchased a pack series. MZ states I only paid for the first pack of 19.99. Yet my receipt clearly shows all in the series purchased on the same day within the time allotment. I filed a grievance with Apple and my Credit card company since MZ will not honor their word.
$$$$$$$$$
by AliensRreal on 2017/11/20 03:31
The game is dumb and things don't work. If you have an ego and lots and lots of money, the game is for you, if you can get over things not working 85% of the time.
Don’t download

Waste of time and money. Lots of money. Your HARD earned money.
Worst support ever
by Thelinks on 2017/11/20 02:23
Game broke on me at start of year. Tried 10 times to get them to correct the issue. Each time they treated me as if I were a new player.....hello I had played for over four years. I know or at last thought I knew how to play. They treat their players like imbeciles unless that see hundreds of dollars spent on the account...
Money pit
by Square and compass :. on 2017/11/19 02:53
This game is designed to drain you of money. If you do not spend money there is no way you can compete or enjoy the game itself. And even if you spend $5 thousand dollars (no exaggeration players spend this kind of money) to upgrade your account, you can be attacked and wiped out in 5 mins and you have to start all over. Go play Clash Royale.
Exorbitant
by ebrophy on 2017/11/19 02:03
Impossible to play without dropping $100 each time there's a new update. Your time invested is irrelevant, your money you spent is irrelevant unless it was the most recent pack. They structure things so every new update is an order of magnitude higher than the last. MZ thinks they're smart and that their advertising will save them from these horrendous business practices. They're wrong. Update: still the same. Crap company that needs to be shut down.

by knowerofallthings on 2017/11/19 00:22
This game was an awesome game but Machine Zone has destroyed the game with all the updates that they roll out everyday. You need to constantly spend big dollars and even then you need to stay shielded. There is no strategy to the game anymore it’s who ever spends the most wins and that takes thousands and thousands of dollars. It’s no longer a war game. it’s a gives us your money and push buttons. Take my advise and stay away from the game.
Kinda stinks now
by janemarks on 2017/11/18 21:48
I’ve been playing for two years, at first it was fun and competitive. The problem is they add to the game to frequently, you never catch up and it becomes expensive. This is not a game for children to join. Adults have problems with all the percentages involved and the numbers get to be in the trillions. It has gotten way out of the reach of fun. If you join an alliance you make great friends but since the game has gotten so bad many friends are leaving.
$$$$$
by Multijoys on 2017/11/18 18:00
It’s all about the money you spend, and some people spend hundreds on this game. There are so many variables now, you need a checklist to make sure you have everything set before you can play. I used to be addicted. The rate of updates(translates into requirement to spend money to get what’s needed to stay competitive) killed my addiction, so thanks for that. I spent two years playing to play, not spend all my time upgrading and upgrading.... and upgrading. In short, the game can be challenging, if you have the time after upgrading to play for a few days before you have to spend for the next big thing.
SCAM GAME
by Deadendgamepass123 on 2017/11/18 15:35
You will NEVER be able to compete in this game unless you drop hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Buyer beware. Strictly a money machine with YOU as the LOSER. Don't know why the attorney general has not gone after these guys as their website ..I.e. Chests, perks, rewards are FIXED. There are no random wins. You lose regardless what you choose. You'll understand if you decide to play. Tons of dead accounts and players begging suckers to buy their accounts.
WARNING - Game is being shut down!
by JGB5280670 on 2017/11/18 14:35
The Pay 2B Loser scams MZ are running are coming to an abrupt halt very soon! Don't invest time and you would be even more foolish to spend any money.
Quite the Game (used to be)
by Cyclops on 2017/11/18 12:57
My bud and I were heavily addicted to the game, it captivated my mind even when I was doing other things. I was good, but not awesome, but then wifey kept my credit card receipts for a few months in disgust she threw them down on the table and asked (screamed) For WHAT??? and I saw the ramp up in money spent and time never to be refunded. My bud and I quit the game. Was quite the ride. But... if you can’t see all the warning from almost explayers that are only unhappy due to pay to win - not for being good at something have fun, getting lost here is quite the trip, or at least used to be. Cyclops

Very expensive game in order to enjoy
by pure pain in the wallet on 2017/11/17 01:32
There are people spending several $1,000’s to keep up and be competitive. If not willing it’s horrible to play because you can not compete or defend yourself. Don’t start playing it’s terrible if you don’t want to spend big!
Dead Game
by DarthCouchPotato on 2017/11/16 21:46

Used to be!
by Minnyjr on 2017/11/16 20:32
Used to be able to buy a pack a month and stay competitive! Used to be able to depend on that and fellow alliance members to work together. Now it’s all about buying packs and hitting people when they fall asleep. Not any skill involved. Shame the game was going somewhere until it decided to focus on being a money grab. Sad thing is. If they woulda took it slower. Woulda worked. Now there power levels with gazillion. No lie. A friggin gazillion. Lol. Go ahead spend a grand over time like me. I would highly not recommend game.

I played this game years ago. Put over $400 in it to have it glitch up and lose everything. Packs are too expensive and it’s not worth the money. Glad that’s all I lost.
Scammers
by Mr massacre855578 on 2017/11/15 06:11
Mz will scam you out of your money. They put out offers of buy a flash sale and unlock free packs but they don’t tell you that you have to buy multiple flash sales to unlock the free packs. They are very manipulative and dishonest about what you are getting when you spend money. Too bad because it is a fun game. You have loyal paying customers so why do you have to be so cloak and dagger about your sales?? Hope this review helps someone not get screwed by mz like I have. Make sure it explains exactly what you are getting if you spend money otherwise don’t do it.
Cute but
by Froganator on 2017/11/14 20:10
Cute game nice graphics but like most established games new people are just good to be fed on by larger established players and alliances. That makes for a less then fun gaming experience. I have recently stopped playing. If you are smaller player all you can do is stay shielded popping you head out to grab some resources. You are always one crash or failure of the Internet away from total destruction. That's what happened to me my net died and cell was dead. So in the 15 minutes it took to reconnect my city was torched and hero captured and will most be likely killed. So I deleted the game and give up.

But it wasn’t always that way. It’s now a game that forces you to spend money to grow.
Absolute garbage
by Jo_MFKn on 2017/11/12 16:47
This game is absolutely garbage! I'd recommend to everyone to stay away from this game. RUN! The greed involved in this game by the developers is totally insane. Daily updates that cost $100, and that's not all, because it will cost at least, at minimum $1K to fully complete the new releases. This game is a joke, DO NOT download this game, no matter how much money you have to spare, it will mean nothing the very next day. Spend $500 today and tomorrow it will literally be worth nothing. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Machine zone destroyed this game. Pathetic!
Rampant
by Icecoldone! on 2017/11/12 13:34
Time consuming endless pit. Plays great but lacks the construction for a smoother mobile device considering getting booted, screen freezes and lagging. Game growth too fast, which has forced many to vacate game, as well as price to maintain. There definitely plenty to do to grow but almost next to no time to complete tasks when learning new stages. Nothing’s for free. Play at your own risk. Ram eater!!!

MZ/GOW is just a greed game now. No skill to it!
by NeverUseWishApp on 2017/11/11 18:04
They advertise packs with headlines to get you to buy, guaranteeing you hero levels, building levels, etc but sometimes there is not enough in the pack to get you to what the headline says. They false advertise. The game is all about greed for MZ now. There is no longer any skill to it. It’s just how much you can buy. They come up with an update a day, taking the fun away from the game. If you’re off three days, expect to be tapping buttons all day to catch up, rather than fighting. I started playing nearly four years ago and it’s a joke now. The only reason I stick around is because of other players. The game itself is a joke and ain’t worth your time or money.
The good ole days
by Cewmommy on 2017/11/11 15:44
I played this game actively for years spending money but last 6 months+ the game creators have taken the fun out of playing unless you are willingly to spend paychecks on them. I have seem active players just quit. I would recommend finding a different game to play. This game glitches so much it is even difficult to get basic plays completed.
Great game- costs lots
by Mas_non on 2017/11/11 07:14
This game is lots of fun but has micro transactions that will get you to put in $1,000+ per month as the packages get better each week or daily. The game was fun back in the day but now it’s Trillion Trillion Trillion Trillion days to create troops and to get that done instantly you have to put lots of money into the game. The amount of money needed to play the game with a fighting chance is outrageously high.
trash
by Keith Von on 2017/11/11 05:49
Used to be really fun but now its terrible its now a pay to win game and its no longer strategy. Keep updating every 48 hours and its ruining the game 👎🏽 atleast wait for a couple of months
If you’re into wasting money..get this app
by trons on 2017/11/11 01:37
Three years ago this was a great game. Well past it’s prime as the game is only towards getting as much money out if you as possible. Lag times of 7+sec; poorly executing scripts; bogged servers and app close outs are the norm. Constant ads to buy!! It’s no longer about skill or fun.
Money grab
by Baked8670 on 2017/11/11 01:35
First, the game looks nothing like the supposed screen shots they show. It used to be you could grow and max out fairly well then they would add a new item. Now, it’s additions everyday. Have to spend to keep up. If you don’t spend, you can’t get in on the action. As others have said, used to be a strategy game. Now it’s a game to see who can spend the most. Not worth your time or money.
Miss the old days
by Wyodaddy76 on 2017/11/10 22:28
Back when we first started GOW it was awesome always wondering what would happen during the day or night. But in the last year MZ (machine zone) has put out have baked updates that barely work or throw the game into glitches that degrade the quality of the game. Also updates used to be one or two a month now a days it’s 4-5 a week all of them costing you a good portion of your hard earned checks just to save the work you had put into this game for all these years when we loved it, and when you complain to MZ about it they use a algorithm to respond to you and refuse to refund money that was wasted.

WASTE OF MONEY
by JD13Cassis on 2017/11/05 14:05
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!!! New Edit: Even when you purchase packs that contained "high roller" for their "casino" it can be revoked and removed. I spent the money to play this game, bought the high roller almost two years ago, and now they claim that I never purchased that pack. Glad I kept my records because I'll be joining any lawsuits against them once one gains steam. FALSE ADVERTISING. NO player-oriented focus. Unless you have thousands of dollars to spend monthly, AVOID THIS GAME. Original: This couldn't be a bigger waste of time and money.... unless you include your effort wasted too. Advice: use any money you'd use towards this game towards ANYTHING but this game. Only play this if you intend on spending massive amounts of money that you probably don't even have.
Disappointed
by Cori0378 on 2017/11/05 00:41

The golden goose
by LizardCal on 2017/11/04 23:09
Is this even a game anymore? Mz completely ruined this. Doesn't rely on strategy at all unless you count how deep your pockets go. Horrible glitches, they don't care about the players.. just the cash. Daily updates, there's literally no way to get around the paywall without shelling out $100 every time they release stuff. They had it going well, but they got greedy and killed their golden goose. Don't download this.
Game is awful
by Sacato on 2017/11/04 21:14
This game used to be fun and you could be entertained with attainable goals and modest spending. The cost to play after level 22 becomes ridiculous with quantities needed to level up and the time it takes to level up are on a scale that makes more sense. Today, I decided to add some soldiers and the lowest amount that can be created is 10m, after scrounging enough resources from the last purchased package, it will no take 3,999 days to complete. What?! Horrible now :(
Fake reviews
by Drewfus87 on 2017/11/04 14:20

It is a lost cause
by _captain__rex_ on 2017/11/04 11:35
I have had this game FOREVER, and I'm telling you, don't get it. It use to be amazing and you were able to have great battles, but now, it's like our economy, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. What I mean by that is when you start out with a fresh account, you will never make it, so then you have to buy gear, then you level up to 21. But now you need more, it's an endless cycle. But the people like me, we have had this game for years. We've seen the changes, we know what's wrong. There are WAY TOO MANY KINDS OF SOLDIERS. Like come on, the one guy in the bottom of the strategic column can to take a million of the normal solders. There are like 200 different kinds. It's insane. But the people who buy all there gear, there the rulers, and they are a**holes.
Sad
by XxBelatrixX on 2017/11/04 04:21
I've been playing for about a year and I was so into this game for so long... And then upgrade after upgrade started dropping almost daily. Who can keep up with the much money spent every single day? Just ctesse... If you message then you get a generic response even if you've spent thousands of dollars. Let's go back to giving a few months in-between troops and all this crazy stuff. The sad thing is I still want to play. You meet some pretty great people and it's challenging. This game could easily be 5 stars if they catered to the gamers that have invested in this game for so long.
Game of War - Fire Age
by death to game of war on 2017/11/03 19:45
Do not under any condition get this game. The in-app purchases are outrageously expensive for what they give. The customer support is (it’s your fault, you must be doing something wrong, we are never at fault). The game should be called Game of Wallets and your real enemy are the game designers. You have no realistic hope of survival in this game and at the end of the day will have spent thousands of dollars per month with nothing to show for it.
Absolutely ridiculous!
by TripnFel on 2017/11/03 11:42
I have been playing this game since K2 and recently decided to build a new SH in 1122, 3 weeks ago we had an event called the Champion Wonder. I bought 7 packs for the ports to be able to compete with another alliance. Due to MZs mistakes 50% of the people who purchased were not able to port in. I have emailed MZ 19 times to resolve this and the best they will say is “sorry for the inconvenience” if you don’t want to get ripped off and get sent predrafted emails from a company who doesn’t care at all about your gaming experience then GoW is the game for you!

I played the game for 4-5 months and spent more than I’d like to admit. To play and have fun you absolutely have spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Once that money is spent you have to spend more to stay relevant due the game’s updates. Stay away!
Used to be a great game
by MusicMan/ on 2017/10/31 15:26
Old Review: I've been playing this for years and it keeps getting better and better. New review: I've been playing this game for over 4 years. Back when it first came out it was a really fun game where people would build up their empire to compete, and whoever spent time in the game would become powerful. Now it's not about spending time in the game it's about spending money. Any new player could come on, spend a couple hundred bucks and become more powerful than me, even though I have years more of experience. Mz is trying to grow too fast by putting new troops and new ranks in the game every week, and they try to make money by making so the only way you can have these new things is to spend money.
Glitches and lag not worth it.
by BeTrixi on 2017/10/31 14:25
Don’t start this game. It was fun but the greed of developers has surpassed all of the game quality. Everyone that plays this game now has issues and errors and the developers put up expensive upgrades without fixing errors and glitches. I played for 1 hour this morning was kicked form game 9 times and can’t access part of the game dashboard. The enjoyment is not equal to the mass frustration. If you like a good challenging game that runs well, buy a PlayStation or Xbox, or play another non machine zone game. I don’t normally write bad reviews... this is first in years. Take my advise don’t load it.
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.

Mz steals your money
by nursepeppy on 2017/10/30 20:32
MZ does not care about actual customer service! All they care about is the money and not the customer or app issues. They used to have releases weekly which was financially stable, but now they have new releases once or twice in a day which is about $100 each update. And if the app kicks you in the middle of purchasing release packs..you still pay them money and don’t receive the packs. And they then still refuse to help. Alberto was the worst at assisting! Still has not returned my further response to my emails showing proof that I did send them money. Has totally stopped correspondence even when requested to talk to his supervisor on a phone call.

The game is different now, but still fun except for the pak ads every time you tap Athena gifts. They were responsive to my complaints and rectified what Needed to be done. The players are mostly friendly except for the bullies who spend more just to be bullies
Don't bother
by 6DeuceSS on 2017/10/30 04:40
Been playing for a few years. But don't bother. It's a pay to play. Or get zeroed in one hit
Avoid, do not play
by Lord Raahhh on 2017/10/30 04:00
Poor customer service. Only cares about money. The game is rigged to force you to pay tens of thousands of dollars and punishes you if you don't. I like to play a game and earn rewards based on my skill, not cheat and buy my way through.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Used to be fun
by CBKBGB on 2017/10/29 22:21
This game WAS fun and exciting till about 8months ago when the game developers decided to remove all strategic gameplay and make it all about how much and how fast you can spend. ‘Free to play’ is long gone, just a different version of FarmVille. Actual gameplay requires weekly, if not daily, in-app purchases. I’ve been back and forth with MZ customer service, which is a joke, and they pretty much confirmed this. Big shame, was an exciting fun game. Logging in these days is just to reload shields to protect the investment I already made into this game. I’ll have to let it go at some point since MZ doesn’t care about their loyal players that helped get them to where they are now with their game platform. Stay away from this game unless you have extra money that you really don’t want because 1 pack purchase will only last 48hours max. Should also note, images listed here are nothing like the actual game graphics
Won't even load
by Showerbeast on 2017/10/29 20:29
I used to love this game when I first started playing, but now it's become a purely pay-to-play game. You can't do anything anymore without paying for it. Every update gets worse, too. And now the game won't even load. I messaged support and was told to update my device. No hun, your game is just crashing. I have worked on this game for years, but it's really not even worth it anymore.
Don’t start
by Robertfto on 2017/10/29 19:20
Cost too much to play now. Too many updates too fast. If you don’t spend $ everyday then you get left behind. The packs you buy today for $100 will be available next day or so for $10. Not worth it.
There is no end to what MZ will do to get $$$
by PonieTail on 2017/10/29 12:56
New players beware, there is no loyalty too players in this game. I have played 3 years and put thousands of $$$ and worked hard to build a glorious empire. I know stupid me! But who knew a new player can buy just 1 $100.00 pack and out build you versus a player that built for years. Destroying you with one hit, not even a rally, and all your power, money, and time you put into building is gone. Oh yes, they put a lot in even a small pack, but they are just baiting you. There is always one item missing you need to become stronger than your enemy. So it’s just a matter of time when you realize it’s an endless cycle and all you paid for is worth nothing. Run do not pay MZ for just a day or week of fun because a newer player that has no clue just spent less than you did and spent less time than you did AND Beat You.😳 MZ’s rating are dropping every month because players are realizing it’s a trap. Go put your money into a game you can keep what you build, you loose all your troops, speed ups and power to just one hit to a player that is now MTTT strong. Once I thought a trillion was powerful. What is MTTT power anyways, and how can one player get that strong in just a day? Really😡
Good game to waste time
by KensW0rld on 2017/10/29 04:41
Used to be a great game, but most original players have left. They re-allocated a lot of server space to other games so the game crashes a lot
Is all about money
by Disturbingfist on 2017/10/28 18:48
In order too succeed in this game you have to spend thousands of dollars. Not worth it
Problematic
by Dump Mz Apple on 2017/10/28 11:30
This game is so full of flaws anymore it’s not even funny. Mz caters to the people who can afford to drop $500-$600 a day but can’t even fix simple reoccurring glitches. When you do complain to them you get very lackluster responses which have been proven to be just copy and paste replies that 99.9% of the time place blame on you the consumer and your devices. Updates are now getting to be twice a day with new drops and seems like even those are not even tested in beta due to the high amount of glitches that come with each one. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!!!!! Apple needs to do the same as google and put Machine Zone under review for the massive amounts of complaints.
Fix random crashes
by Johnryann on 2017/10/28 08:23
I love the game, but am getting really sic of the crashes, fix this please
Money Hungry!!
by LoganF24 on 2017/10/28 01:52
Fun game at first, then you hit a certain point where you have to spend money to grow so you buy a few packs to keep up but unless your spending $20-100 constantly you will never keep up and once you fall behind you can’t un-shield or you will get zeroed. The only good thing is when you find a cool alliance, they become like family when you talk to them. I’ve been in my same alliance for almost a year and the people are super cool but MZ is always wanting more money.
Ridiculousness
by MonkeyMom2dd on 2017/10/27 18:45
MZ has completely destroyed this game. Upgrades come out every couple of days without allowing players to familiarize themselves with all the aspects of the new features. Additionally, they don’t seem to be actually quality controlling the releases. The game is glitchy and will constantly drop even when playing on a very high speed, high quality connection. Half the features don’t work. MZ constantly double bills for their in app purchases, so that is always a fight. Most of the time the packs are missing pieces. MZ takes a huge amount of time to respond and then they don’t fix the issue. There are issues that MZ hasn’t been able to resolve for 5 months now. This is a horrible game. The only good thing has been our group chat. I have met a great bunch of people who are fun to converse with after a long day.
Amazing game
by Ncgamom on 2017/10/27 11:08
I really like this game I haven’t been able to take my fave out of it for the last 6 hours
Bitely6
by Bitely on 2017/10/27 09:04
I used to enjoy the game until MZ turned it into a money pit. Alot of my friends no longer play. One cannot advance without buying a plethora of packs and spending hundreds of dollars. However ; even after doing so One doesn't get ahead. It's gotten very complicated. MZ doesn't care about making the players happy. They are interested in getting money from you. It's at the point where one can't advance their research or strong hold without buying a pack. The game has also gotten very complicated. I don't blame my friends for leaving. I just stay to check in and collect gifts and what not. Other than that I don't recommend this game to anyone. Don't waste your time and money.
Horrible Customer Support
by MZareCROOKS on 2017/10/26 00:44
Been waiting over 1 Month to be able to use Items I have Purchased to Play The Game. I'm Still waiting. Heard there was a Class Action Civil Suit about to be Filed against this Company. Fraudulently taking Money and Not giving customers what they pay for. If you haven't already spent Money on this App I Would Highly Recommend that you DONT.
Get rid of the only been able to train 10 mill troops at the least
by Isaac Douglass on 2017/10/26 00:05
I love this gave and the realism but I hate the tttm m mmm stuff no one actually has the much money in the game. And no one in real back then had that much money. Plus quit with the stupid buy gold adds
Good game gone extremely wrong!
by Seadung on 2017/10/25 23:13
A couple years ago This was a very cool game!! Now it's all about Money🤔. If you don't spend a hundred dollars a week you can do nothing but chat and stay shielded. I suggest Facebook or some other social media that doesn't cost u your house and a bad credit score 🙈😂😂. Anyways I give this game 👎👎 even if I was a millionaire I would rather spend it on pokeyballs 😝😝😝. Everyone. needs to quit it👎🍻
Totally ruined with everyday updates
by Imalahat on 2017/10/25 13:25
Just don't play , totally ruined with daily updates , to be able to play need to spend big money, don’t get confused with starter packs , need at least spend $100 a week to be able to play , if you not spending money you will be shielded 24/7 and just socialize in the chats ,
Getting tired of it
by BLACK ARIA on 2017/10/25 03:12
I get kicked off the game every five minutes trying to boost. The upgrades are coming to fast. I imagine out of greed and the lag is getting worse by the day.
Waste of time and money
by supermancwl on 2017/10/24 17:57
This game is the biggest rip off in the app store. Play for free is a scam. It takes hundreds to thousands of dollars per week to keep up with the insane amount of releases they put out.
Terrible game. Not even a game anymore
by Dawg1966 on 2017/10/24 11:02
This app is no longer a game. It is impossible to grow your account through gameplay. The only way to increase strength is through upgrade $$$ packs. Spending money is not a game. There is no skill required. MZ-the publisher of GOW has really screwed up the entire experience of the app. Stay away from this game. Buy an Xbox and a 50” tv. That will be much much cheaper. And don’t kid yourself that you won’t end up spending $$$ on this game. To be competitive or even participate you have to drop $400-$600 a month.
Bad deal
by Ted 420 on 2017/10/24 04:14
The game was fun when slow and cheap in the beginning 1-2 years ago, but now there are daily and weekly updates. If you don’t buy updates you will not be able to compete.
Avoid
by Dis appoint Ed on 2017/10/24 03:42
I started game of war (GOW) three years ago. It was entertaining and I enjoyed the alliance with people all over the world. But for the past year and a half the only strategy is to spend lots of money to stay competitive. There is no room for thrifty gamers in GOW.
Dont recommend
by disappointed in Epic War on 2017/10/23 19:05
I started playing approximately 4 yrs ago when I first started the game was fun and worked well, now there are so many issue that mz is aware of and responds with their typical form letter of “force close the app, blah blah blah”. When the biggest player in the game is zeroed multiple times I think there is an issue, you are forced to spend or leave the game no in between unfortunately. We as an alliance kinda started to keep track we all get booted at the same time and it is multiple times in an hr, this game is pretty much unplayable anymore. It is sad I have made so many friends had some awesome laughs and great times. Farewell GOW its been real.
Updates to excessive
by gmanmatt on 2017/10/23 14:26
I played probably 6-8months and honestly it was fun the first 2-3 months the upgrade rate was prob 3-4 weeks and towards the end it had to be every week. It was to excessive you couldn’t compete anymore being a middle class player. They jumped to tier 4 troops and gem boosts and ruins and potions and banners and more, I jus said enough was enough and quit paying cuz that was what I was doing not playing, save your time and money cuz I regret the time and money I spent. If ur currently playing good luck loosing your retirement trying to stay competitive.
Disappointing return for me
by RikyB on 2017/10/23 13:33
Social aspect - 4.0 Stars Game play - 0.2 Stars Developer support - 1.0 Stars Started playing GOW quite awhile ago. It was fun, kind of addicting and the social aspect rivaled by none (at least in my opinion). When they introduced cores I really didn't have the time to invest in learning how to use them so I quit playing. Recently I downloaded the game again and major disappointment ensued. It has become a horrendous click fest and money grab by MZ. The lags / delays in pulling up the troop list for marches got exponentially worse with the higher tiers of troops and there appears no end in sight as to the level the developer will take them. This makes any investment today worthless within a week (sometimes less) and the incessant tap, tap, tap to access items / training that aren't covered by use all or similar option is actually quite annoying.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Ok, but...
by Bev BV on 2017/10/22 06:53
It’s a visually stunning and complex game, I’ll give Machine Zone that. Still, you cannot play this game and make any real progress without paying a LOT of money. There is no end to the amount of spending you will have to do in order to keep up with the game as the engineers continually add more things that you will feel compelled to obtain/achieve to maintain relevance and a sense of accomplishment. This is how they hook you. The constant gaming evolution would otherwise be a gamer’s dream-come-true, save for the fact that these things are NOT attainable for free or by “waiting it out.” You MUST spend money. And not just $20 here or there... I’m talking about hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To top of it all off, despite the exorbitant amount of revenue this game generates, there is still an inexcusable amount of glitches and lag within the game, as well as slow & incompetent customer service when problems arise. Bottom line, DON’T download this game unless you are prepared to drop loads of cash to “enjoy yourself.” Otherwise, don’t even bother. Take it from me; I have played this game for several years now, and I can attest to all of this from very personal (and financial) experience.
Just Nasty
by Fun... But... 😔 on 2017/10/22 21:20
MZ, just stop. Your advertisements are annoying, especially when you make us not only watch a video, but actually play the "game". The game you show does not even have good graphics, and it was probably copied from a primitive tower defense game. Needless to say, this "video" advertisement is nothing like GOW at all. However, I would argue that this tower defense game is more fun than the sht MZ gives us. I haven't even gotten into the real gameplay yet! We have people here, downloading the game because they like tower defense games, only to find that it is a game like Goodgame Empires. This is not okay. And the biggest problem is is that you might want to spend your life savings on this game, but not only do the packs come late (sometimes a week later), one hit from another player and boom! Your SH is gone. This game is an absolute disgrace and is only fun if you spend thousands (trust me, people have). This game was ruined by greedy developers. Edit: If I could, I would rate it 0 stars. I thought it was bad in December of 2016 but I was wrong. MZ comes out with new updates every day and you literally have to spend hundreds of dollars a week to catch up to not even the top players, but just the medium sized players. I am just done, and I am quitting forever.
Glitchy money pit
by LadyAnna1 on 2017/10/13 16:43
The game used to be fun. I've played since it was released! The good old days. In July 2017 a stronghold 40 was max... now it at 305. In line with the speed of all new releases... at troop level 18 now from t4 . You HAVE to buy to play this game... you cannot play without buying a minimum of $500 a month at minimum. But if you the money it's fine right? WRONG.. for a software company the have horrible programmers that can't keep the game functioning as intended😆. For a YEAR now the game has been plagued with glitches so bad your purchases cannot even be used! Ticket after ticket to MZ support and no fix in sight. They don't care about their players or the gaming experience at all... it's all about making money and customer service is nonexistent. This company should be sued for their false advertisements and not providing the game capabilities PURCHASEd by players... myself included. Today I quit because I realize the game will never work properly and the company doesn't care,., as long as people keep buying they keep profiting
The Rich prey on the Weak
by MCAS77 on 2017/09/29 05:31
I've been playing for 4 months now. I feel it's time to leave a proper review. Please. Don't. Stop... do not download this app. 1) it's addictive... fun right? No! Like an illegal drug you will spend money, wanting to advance to become the biggest and baddest kingdom in the land. Well... packages to upgrade start at $4.99. You buy one thinking oh that's not bad. From there they hit you with $19, $59, $79 and oh yes, $99 packages to upgrade! Don't be like me and think oh I'll just buy the $19 packages... it adds up! At a certain level, you HAVE to pay to upgrade!!!! There are players in this game that PAY $100's of dollars to become level 125! Only the RICH can do it! Plus, to upgrade buildings, it takes multiple days sometimes it takes a billion trillion trillion days!!! I AM NOT LYING. They give you speed up Day tokens, you have to pay for them of course. So many have stopped playing. A lot of castles sitting around without peace shields. They can't afford it and neither can I! Shame on you MZ!!😡
Once upon 3 years ago..
by D3w4eva on 2017/09/28 04:35
3 years ago I played game of war religiously. I loved the game, my alliance was fun to talk to and we became a second family of sorts. The gameplay was simple, play wisely to unlock higher level troops to participate in a fun kingdom kill event each month. As the game grew it turned into kingdom vs kingdom which was pretty neat. Then something changed. It became a complete pay to win and almost pay to play with 100$ purchases thrown at you to make you one of the big boys. Now after a 2 year break it has gotten worse. The 20$ packs are just for show, you still easily throw down 100$ a month on this game because new content that you HAVE to buy— no possible way to earn it in game— comes out almost literally daily. It’s ridiculous. The kingdoms are full of dead accounts of people who have long since given up trying to catch up and I’m on the verge of the same... again. Was a great game hence 3 stars. But be warned, it is pay to play now.
MZ has gone insane
by Decadave on 2017/08/08 20:18
I started playing GoW a while ago, and the developer used to have updates every week or two. You had time to get caught up on all of the new research/building levels/troops between updates. Additionally, the updates were modest in how much improvement they gave to a player. If you didn't purchase a new pack, it wouldn't mean that you were irrelevant...it just meant that you weren't going to win the big battles. Over the last month, MZ has literally been offering new releases every day. If you want to be a strong player, you have to spend money daily. These new releases make players stronger by an order of magnitude. You can go from being the ruler of your kingdom, to a player that has all of his troops killed by a single attack two days later, if you don't buy new packs. MZ is running people out of this game at an incredible pace, because they can't afford to pay. It was a fun game, but now it just costs too much.
Extreme spending required to play
by NTJedi on 2017/08/09 04:40
A growing greed is the only focus of these developers. There's literally "zero" creativity with game updates and features... as every single one requires big spending and only adds increased attack types or defense types to your stats. Lots of dead features like forging items, treasure maps and killing monsters give old worthless rewards... VERY BORING. Game events also are old worthless rewards. You literally have all troops die with a single enemy attack even if you've spent hundreds in the game! Advertisements to buy packs spam your game mail too! LOTS of players spreading the news to avoid any games from Machine Zone such as Final Fantasy because the developers don't bring new ways of gaming fun, they only add higher stats costing more money. The only people still playing are the ones who spent lots of money in the game... and MZ pushing them away with the constant new updates needing more money from gamers.
Used to be fun

Think twice
by MZ needs professional help on 2017/08/28 07:44
Before installing Game of War. Once a fun game, it's now nothing more then a ticking time bomb. The summer of 2017 has brought about endless updates, that are almost daily.(Once monthly, then biweekly then weekly in the days of yore.) Miss even one and you won't enjoy the results. Unless you just won the lottery to spend ridiculous amounts of money, you won't be able to play for long. MZ has lost their mind and decided to see just how much cash they can squeeze from this cow before it becomes their next burger combo. The thing about daily updates are all the bugs introduced that often go unfixed. This includes the game packs you can purchase. Don't believe what the pack offer reads, it's a crap(50/50) shoot if you'll actually get what's advertised. Forget about customer service, its automated and they seem to delight in ignoring you every way possible. Except your money, they'll gladly take all of that.

by MakivilGOST on 2017/10/23 03:42
I’ve been playing this game for over 3 years. It was an excellent game at first. I took 3 years to build my city and troops, and witching less than 10 seconds it was all wiped away because I refuse to spend on another $20-$99 for another pack. Now I only log on to say hello to friends from my alliance to say hello. Besides, you can spend $99 today and tomorrow you can get a similar pack for $20 but the pack is now ancient after they update the game regularly and when they do they add another feature that forces you to spend more money or become obsolete as a player. I actually do not mind spending a few dollars for packs but this is becoming ridiculous. I’m too far in to quit but I rather become obsolete than give MZ another dime. I’ll probably spend $20 every six months to stay obsolete but I will never spend $20-$40 a week to stay current. I hope MZ is reading this because you just lost another loyal customer.
Best to Worst
by ahalia on 2017/08/10 09:21
BGame was so good i played for years and had many accounts and loved the game. sadly now it's all about how fast they can take your money. Be ready to be convinced and justify spending money$$$$ . $300 a month will not even close to get you into the fun if there is any left. Not even ppl spending $5000 a week are having fun anymore. You need a lot of time to prepare and click eternally here and there all to be zeroed in one hit. Graphics are bad. This game was the best game ever but between the scams, the lies, the Mz math, the terrible customer service and that you get ripped off on your own purchases and no refunds it's just not a good game to choose to play. I stay on for my friends, just chat and kill monsters. Not spending any more money here. Mz if you reading this you must know that if you did a game with less updates(greed) you'd have more people. I'm guessing Mz prefers to have few high spending idiots than lots of gamers.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Don’t waste your time
by Sosa916 on 2017/09/28 20:06
I started playing this game 5 years ago with my son and was fun he social aspect. The battles. And slow growth. It took them 3.5 years too give us T5’s Troops and now we have T13’s with different gear dropping daily and no time to even learn new troops, new gear. It is all about greed now more then letting your loyal gamers have fun and battle. Everything has gotten out of hand so much do that you can a ridiculous amount of troops which take money and resources to build gone in just 1 attack. It’s sad to say after I was zeroed my son told me it’s time to quit. And as hard as it is I must say I have to agree with him. It has become To expensive to enjoy or even try.. I miss the good old days. So with a heavy heart of saying goodbye to dear friends it’s time to walk away.. and messaging machine Sind dies nothing as they don’t care and give generic responses.. signing off ArcanumLove
GoW-the biggest $$$$$ trap ever

I played GoW for 2 years, grew with the game, took over a clan as leader... now I avoid this game like the plague it is. To keep from having others attack you and take everything from your supplies to your hero, you'll need to stay shielded. To stay shielded you'll need shields, and they cost. You can earn some, but not enough to stay safe. If you don't and just get zeroed, you'll likely be talked to by your leader about not bringing the attention to the hive, or kicked out of the clan to survive alone. It's all about the money. Money in exchange for the latest research and skills ladder they build (expect these regularly), money for shields, money for... everything. One of my players racked up $10,000 in debt in one year on this game, and he was a modest spender. If you're not rich, this isn't the game for you. I had to go cold turkey and just walk away.
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.

I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
Might as well just flush $$$$$$$ down the toilet…….
by Dirtè on 2017/08/06 19:29
Unless you do nothing but spend money in this game, you are destined to lose. Sometimes MZ (the developers) will drop your shield while you’re sleeping, and in turn lose all your troops/power. Played for a year, spent around $1200……last night they must’ve dropped my shield…..woke up completely dead (yet somehow my shield was still active; Hmmmm - money making scheme?) Basically, last night I lost $1200 with nothing to show. With heavy hitters spending $50k+++++ on it, just expect to spend money and be killed. If I’d known this from the start, never would have downloaded it (don’t even get me started on the CONSTANT updates they do, so you’re forced to spend more money to keep up). Sooooo, DO NOT DOWNLOAD/PLAY this game…..you will hate yourself for it later on, and will have a much lower figure on your bank statement.
Always was pay to win
by hate family guy on 2017/09/09 18:05
To all the people saying it used to be play to win...it's always been pay to win. If you've been playing long enough you'd know that back in the day (at least when I first spent money) it would cost at least $1,000 to get tier 4 troops and good gear. The cost hasn't changed other than if you wait a week you can max out your account for like $30. The people in your alliance make it fun. Want to destroy people? Spend $1,000 or more a month, want to trap, spend $200 a month. Research isn't as important anymore as good gear and a ton of troops are. It used to be that with the right research you would ruin the day for the biggest spenders. Now you have to max research, current gear and more troops than the galaxy has particles
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.
Don't download...
by Basiaczek on 2017/09/13 13:27
I'm an uber rational, careful spender. Peaceful woman. New mother. Serial budgeter (with a fat account, still, frugal...). Seriously. If somebody told me the amount of money I'd spend on GOW a year ago, I would never believe. In two months I had spent four figures and then - in a split second of rational thinking - I asked MZ to kill my account rather than sell it or give it away. That game is super fun, terribly addictive and unbelievably expensive. You'll likely meet great people who you'll fall in love with. You will think about this game ALL THE TIME. You will check every hour if there's a rally going on to join in and have fun... And you'll spend your kids college fund... I left in May and I still have an urge to log in and start a new account just to check on my alliance mates and see where they are. Anyone here from Calandria? Any updates? Sheesh...
Constant charge issues!
by IrritatedConsumer on 2017/08/13 07:28
I enjoy playing the game but yes MZ is constantly coming up with high dollar packs required to progress through the game then when you buy packs you better watch your charges very closely. Itunes or MZ seems to wait days before charging your account and other times it's charged immediately! So when you buy a pack suddenly you'll find charges for 2 packs and if you don't watch your account closely you won't notice it..even after contacting support and giving them the dates and charges to my account they continue to tell me it's a delay charge for up to 10 days! Sometimes it is delayed but I watched every charge closely and I was being double charged on certain instances. I say watch your account closely. Good luck!
Money pit
by Jblair41 on 2017/08/10 13:09
Gow is a great game, or at least it used to be before it turned into a money pit. To stay competitive and up to date, takes at least $100 a week. You used to be able to play at a decent level without having to spend at all, but now in order to do almost anything worth your time, you have to be completely up to date. If you have not started playing, DON'T. If you haven't spent money yet, Delete the app now before you are lured into MZ's trap. There are far to many variations of this game from other developers to warrant spending anything on this game, unless you are already hooked and invested in this game, as many of us who have been playing for a very long time are.
From extreme fun to very expensive, monotonous and impossible
by chazbzmom on 2017/08/24 00:43
This game was super fun, allows for real time war & rallies etc. I loved it! but it really was expensive. That was 6 weeks ago. Now it seems that the upgrades are too fast and furious & making competition much more difficult & astronomical spending just to keep competitive. The game was already 3 years old when I started, I started 3 months ago. Lvl 35 was the max. Now lvl 70 is the max. It's no longer fun & strategy, it is obsessive tapping to research skills, train troops, upgrade bldgs. I spend literally hours a day and hundreds in the last month & I can still barely battle another player. 3 mos ago, it was competitive & I could play on less than 50 usd a month, be competitive and it was super fun, an escape from real life. Now it is harder than real life. Just don't bother.
This game is a scam
by Bahzad123456 on 2017/10/19 15:54
This game is a complete scam, other than taking your money they will not care about anything. The only good thing is the friends you make in this game. My advice is, don’t download this game, but if you do, don’t ever buy anything they offer, just stay in there and make friends. Logical issues: 1 - while this game is a money hole for mz, don’t expect to just pay a one time fee, you are expected to spend an average of $500 per day just to be able to play. 2- packs that are being sold don’t even make sense, you would have everything in a pack and just as in bedazzled you will be missing something all the time too. 3 - as soon as you touch that buy button your money is gone, no refunds and mz won’t care. 4 - what would be sold for $1000 in any given day, it will be $10 the next day. Technical issues: 1 - game crashes, freezes all the time 2 - chat freezes all the time 3 - game is slow as hell 4 - game does crazy things for no reason 5 - there is no technical support, whatever you tell them, they will still give you no answer. Who am I? I have played this game for over a year, one of the top and was famous in the game, my game name is deepimp4ct, you can ask around.
Deceptive Advertising practices
by frontera jazz quartet on 2017/11/20 23:08
Great Game and tons of fun to play. Sometimes and it’s been happening to a lot of us lately aren’t getting what we pay for in these packs they sell. The purchased Pack could say it includes instant multiple researches so you buy the pack only to find out that it’s not working or wasn’t added to your account. The number and amount of upgrading is also getting out of hand. MZ does not give you the time to enjoy those upgrades you spent 100s of dollars on because they hit you with more 1 day later. Not saying it shouldn’t happen but slowing a bit down would make it more enjoyable. The upgrades are coming so fast now every is shielded half the time and so there’s no action. So about 80% you’re spending money and researching or upgrading. IMHO MZ developers are the biggest thieves. ReyChorizon.
DO NOT PLAY
by 38:'k&/!2 on 2017/08/08 19:36
I started the game near its beginning. It was the first of its kind, it was such a fun game to play. It's always been pay to play, but in the beginning you could become powerful without paying... just took time. Now, the game has made a complete 180. Resource tiles are useless now because the requirements to upgrade buildings or do research and train troops are outrageous. For example, a tile may have a few million resources on it, but to train a good amount of troops, you will need at least 5TT resources... 5 Trillion Trillion resources... And now, they have new research that cannot be completed without buying... IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ADVANCE IN THESE NEW RESEARCHES FOR TROOPS WITHOUT BUYING BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENTS ARE ONLY FOUND IN PACKS. People spend 1,000s of dollars per week to be good. People have dropped 100k's and even a million dollars to be the best. That is unbelievable. The statistics are insane now, with people having gear that gives them BT% attack... unbelievable. And not to mention terrible graphics and game lag. The only thing good about the game is the social aspect. Have made some great friends throughout my time playing . My advice... unless you want to spend your hard-earned money on a digital game, DO NOT DOWNLOAD
Money Pit! AVOID!
by David in Pittsburgh on 2017/09/03 05:33
This is NOT a free game. It is now at the point where you must buy to progress. I have friends who have spent thousands of dollars a month on this game and for nothing. MZ has complete new releases every week making all the money spent on prior upgrades worthless. It is very common practice in strategy games like these for players to "max" their accounts. And in this one it costs so much money - due to all of the upgrades to stay current that MZ is now dropping each week. Major upgrades that cost quadrillion's of resources and upgrade days where a year ago it was on a normal scale of hundreds to billions. How do you keep track of 12 BTTTT? I mean what number is that? It's a joke. And it's time as a game has come to a close. Avoid this game as well as Mobile Strike and Final Fantasy as they too, are run by Machine Zone (MZ)!!!!
Warning- it's expensive to play
by jcreativemonster on 2017/09/28 13:59
Although I enjoy the game, it's designed so that you have to put money into it or be attacked continually because you can't get strong enough to protect yourself or advance. There should be more opportunities to earn larger quantities of gold rather than purchasing bundles, especially for the newer players. I've recommended the game to many players who gave up due to lack of funds. Overall the game reminds me of World of Warcraft with alliances and potion making and quests but on a smaller scale. As an update, the rating has gone down due to the requirement of purchasing a pack in order to advance. My friends and I have each gotten to a point that we cannot advance without purchasing packs- which we refuse to do. This is ridiculous. I highly recommend you do not play.
Used to be a great game
by MusicMan/ on 2017/10/31 15:26
Old Review: I've been playing this for years and it keeps getting better and better. New review: I've been playing this game for over 4 years. Back when it first came out it was a really fun game where people would build up their empire to compete, and whoever spent time in the game would become powerful. Now it's not about spending time in the game it's about spending money. Any new player could come on, spend a couple hundred bucks and become more powerful than me, even though I have years more of experience. Mz is trying to grow too fast by putting new troops and new ranks in the game every week, and they try to make money by making so the only way you can have these new things is to spend money.
Money?
by annonymoustrex225791 on 2017/09/12 13:53
This game is great things are locked to money though. Remember this game does not have ads at all. It only puts tiny ads to advertise itself on the screen. So of course they have some expensive and some cheap stuff. They need the money to run. It will never be free because it needs a revenue. I'm just happy that when I bought two packs the first was 10 dollars then the next was 20. I was worried that the price would increase to 30 dollars but they keep things at 19 dollars and also have more expensive stuff. I'm glad they considered people's price range.
I love the game but...
by BillyJack68 on 2017/08/14 18:12
Due to recent greed by the developers of this game a lot of people including myself have decided to step away. Many have completely quit. I love the game, but the constant expensive updates with no time in between to allow normal people to catch up has made the game no longer fun! Many times I've gone from a maxed account and in 2 days I'm so far behind that it's insane. New gear, research, gems, and other boosts and add ons are coming at such an alarming rate that only wealthy players can compete. The game has been "dumbed down" so now all you need is money to win. No skill or strategy required! The developers have also refused to repair any of the problems with the game. Constant glitches, freeze ups and being kicked from the game at the most inopportune times.
Pay to Win
by Tithquintarian on 2017/08/03 01:24
This is advertised to be a free game. It is a pay to win immediately game. That is not a typo. You want to win? Grab a BIG credit card. Or find an Alliance that caters to helping those that want to play for free and be ready for a very very long game. Also, there are no restrictions on Chat at all. NC17 does not begin to cover it. Most days it is utterly offensive and I am not easy to offend. Can it be fun? Yes, you just need to find a group of like minded people. Can you play for free? Yes, it takes months and possibly years. Are there issues? Yes, but tell me what game does not have issues. You get out of it what you put into it. Pure and simple. This game is as much fun as any other I have played. Just be prepared for the ups and the downs. Find a group that matches your play style. And be warned, there are hyper competitive people with really deep pockets spending thousands to not care about anyone else. Play, but play your way.
Don't go down this road
by JDOMagic on 2017/09/30 04:03
This was once a fun and exciting game. Now it is a game where someone who has spent thousands and thousands on it can be made completely irrelevant and useless over night by nightly releases that you need to spend about 300 dollars on per night to remain active or able to play at all. They are clearly killing the game on purpose but it is hard for many including myself to let go of something they have spent thousands on and years plaything. Unfortunately, all that money and time is disrespected and made worthless every night by MZ. The creators of this game should be ashamed of themselves. This is the first public complaint against anything I have made in my whole life and I was once one of the biggest spender/players in the game.
It's okay
by Sis12321 on 2017/08/09 13:53
Not much goes on unless you advance fast. The game does ask you to spend money because it will help you reach top levels. So far I haven't since my alliance is very helpful but I have thought about it. It does not help that each time you log in there is a advertisement for $4.99 offering goodies you can't resist. I enjoy the game but equally hate it. I think many should join and try it out if you don't want to spend money then be patient but if you do its your choice. I do recommend the game to people that want to communicate with others and achieve.
Bitely6
by Bitely on 2017/10/27 09:04
I used to enjoy the game until MZ turned it into a money pit. Alot of my friends no longer play. One cannot advance without buying a plethora of packs and spending hundreds of dollars. However ; even after doing so One doesn't get ahead. It's gotten very complicated. MZ doesn't care about making the players happy. They are interested in getting money from you. It's at the point where one can't advance their research or strong hold without buying a pack. The game has also gotten very complicated. I don't blame my friends for leaving. I just stay to check in and collect gifts and what not. Other than that I don't recommend this game to anyone. Don't waste your time and money.
Don't even bother
by *Beckita* on 2017/08/12 14:06
The game is not bad even though the graphics aren't the best, is the greedy developers of MZ, updates every single day, and we are talking about packages of 100 usd, at the beginning it offers you a package of 4.99 usd, that is the hook, you won't be a strong player if you don't invest daily and if you aren't a strong player you can't play at burning other players. They have add insane amounts of updates making the game ridiculous, without spending money here you can only use the chat. Not worth it, believe the reviews, the game is a must spend daily and not that good at all. You will regret if you download this game, i was in the game for 6 months and i invested the amount of a new car, and it was never enough.
This company feeds on people's addiction
by MattTheHulk on 2017/08/31 04:47
I stop playing gow bc I have spent lots of money over times just to catch up and try to be apart of an team then you get few players sometimes even one big players that will spend 1000's and day at time and could kill an entire teams my then self just bc there super rich ppl this game is only for the super rich to enjoy bc it based on who has money most to blow in an game and still put food in the table. This game is no different than gambling but you could never win your money back. It an big addiction to many ppl. That some at willing to loss it all just to play it crazy. I think in lots of case ppl need rehab bc it like crack and herion to many ppl with no end in sight
All about money
by HFakter on 2017/09/12 14:46
When I started playing the game it was about strategy, building and then achieving rewards for growth & success. And yes you had to invest money in the game even then. But now to unlock your growth opportunities you must buy nearly everything. More and more growth & advancement is tied to how much money you spend. My account has been stagnant for nearly a year because I refuse to continue to pump money into this game. It has become less appealing to login daily and play the game. It would be so much better if the mix of money & play were more balanced. Eventually my interest in this game will be lost not because of "the game" but because of "the money".
MZ/GOW is just a greed game now. No skill to it!
by NeverUseWishApp on 2017/11/11 18:04
They advertise packs with headlines to get you to buy, guaranteeing you hero levels, building levels, etc but sometimes there is not enough in the pack to get you to what the headline says. They false advertise. The game is all about greed for MZ now. There is no longer any skill to it. It’s just how much you can buy. They come up with an update a day, taking the fun away from the game. If you’re off three days, expect to be tapping buttons all day to catch up, rather than fighting. I started playing nearly four years ago and it’s a joke now. The only reason I stick around is because of other players. The game itself is a joke and ain’t worth your time or money.
Only caters to big spenders
by OMNISUPREME! on 2017/08/07 10:23
Literally! I have messaged MZ many times asking why I get such terrible offerings in the packs. My friends are on totally different levels spending just $100USD. I spent $15 and now I have the same things offered for over a year. I got to a point where the $20 pack would not advance me but two more researches, the VIP points and hero xp wouldn't budge me even one level up...... MZ chose to stop accepting my money. The special chest they send me a message about on a daily basis is the "Jumping June rewards chest".... it's August! Oh well. At least they get away with mismanaging their business and getting massive profits at the same time. I am and have been done for a while. I just log in to say hi to friends.
Scam artists
by HeIIRyder on 2017/08/31 03:02
I've played the game for years and it was a lot of fun in the beginning. You used to have to have skill to win like stayalive had when he was playing but now all you need to have is deep pockets to buy packs with. Back when it was based on skill you had to craft cores in order to attack with and that made a difference between who won and who didn't. Now all you have to do is buy buy buy and you can have regular attack gear just like everyone else. No skill at all needed. Only thing you need is at least $500 a week just to keep up. And I may be lowballing that. If your reading this and thinking of playing this game DONT. It's a waste of money and a lot of it. !!!NOT FREE TO PLAY!!!
Sad
by CaptainJerry on 2017/10/05 22:05
I have been playing for about 2 and a half years now. It started off as fun and if you were in a good alliance, you could really grow without spending a lot of money. Now, in order to get halfway to the top, you will need to spend THOUSANDS...I'm not kidding. Over the course of the time I have played, I had probably spent a total of $900 and I am at the bottom of the ranking list as far as most powerful players is concerned. It's not uncommon for people to spend $10,000+ on this game and be wiped out. It's like going to a casino, but impossible to win. This game is about who has the most money to spend...and bragging rights. Who wants to spend $10,000 on little dots on a computer screen??
Warning Very Expensive to Play
by Avery92 on 2017/10/14 16:35
This game may start out as a free to play but you will find out fairly quick that once they get you hooked it can be very expensive unless you want to be an unwilling farm for a big city. If your willing to buy numerous $99 packs somewhere around $1000 or more at least to be able to somewhat protect yourself enough from the +1billion plus players then this is the game for you. In many cases l, a change or 2 to the game to drive more revenue for Mz will completely nerf your city and your substantial investment. I personally found that MZ is completely driven by driving more and more revenue as most of the best skills and equipment costs numerous packs to acquire. Be warned!
Mz steals your money
by nursepeppy on 2017/10/30 20:32
MZ does not care about actual customer service! All they care about is the money and not the customer or app issues. They used to have releases weekly which was financially stable, but now they have new releases once or twice in a day which is about $100 each update. And if the app kicks you in the middle of purchasing release packs..you still pay them money and don’t receive the packs. And they then still refuse to help. Alberto was the worst at assisting! Still has not returned my further response to my emails showing proof that I did send them money. Has totally stopped correspondence even when requested to talk to his supervisor on a phone call.
Dont recommend
by disappointed in Epic War on 2017/10/23 19:05
I started playing approximately 4 yrs ago when I first started the game was fun and worked well, now there are so many issue that mz is aware of and responds with their typical form letter of “force close the app, blah blah blah”. When the biggest player in the game is zeroed multiple times I think there is an issue, you are forced to spend or leave the game no in between unfortunately. We as an alliance kinda started to keep track we all get booted at the same time and it is multiple times in an hr, this game is pretty much unplayable anymore. It is sad I have made so many friends had some awesome laughs and great times. Farewell GOW its been real.
Don't download
by Yomomanemz on 2017/08/09 00:53
I played this game for almost 2 years. Yes, all the bad reviews are true. MZ is a cash hungry monster that doesn't care enough to beef up servers for KvK events, but only to deepen their pockets. I've seen big big big players in my kingdom quit the game because it was destroying their credit due to the massive influx of updates on gear to stay alive and resources to train and research to stay a reliable player. When I started playing the gear updates were nowhere near as frequent as they are today. I left due to the greed of MZ and the lack of tech support they offered for their waste of time. I will say this one last time....DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME UNLESS YOU MAKE 6 FIGURES A YEAR!!!!!! You've been warned.
So Sad
by Dncrone on 2017/09/10 06:05
I feel your pain. I started from the beginning and enjoyed maintaining several accounts, but in the last few months, I noticed the shift in playing. I have money to burn, but the game play is out of control, literally! I've been kicked out during attacks, glitches abound to the point where I don't even get into the KVK events because of lag, or kicked out of the game. It used to be fun, but really, 35 years of speed ups to build a building? I remember when 365 days to get to SH21 was the norm. No, I'm walking away. Got better things to spend money on. I'll need to find something to enjoy my evenings with. Thanks for the memories MZ, but of course, you don't care anyway.
Addictive, expensive if you have no self control, immensely enjoyable
by Candy9361212 on 2017/08/14 13:42
I absolutely LUV this..... Lifestyle. If you can manage your spending, you can have an incredible time here !!!! I am having a problem with my account, but the support team does seem to care, and even though my issues have not been resolved after 1 week, MZ has been in contact with me. I have removed 1 star until my issues have been addressed, after which I am sure that I can add that 5th star back on !!

It’s addicting in a bad way
by UNDEFEATD on 2017/11/22 06:43
I’ve played this game for 1 week and it’s frustrating to play with out having to use money.SO IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF MONEY THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU! I rate this game as 0 stars but it won’t let me input that
Starts out fun and games
by Nanhawk on 2017/11/22 05:25
Then things change so much if you miss a day it R two, you are totally lost. Not a fun game with all of the constant changes.
Money grabbing game
by DestroyMCOC on 2017/11/21 14:08
I’m at stronghold 21 and this game tells me I have to pay real money to for my stronghold to go higher levels and more money for my hero to go past level 60. I seen people with a stronghold level of 300 I’m guessing they spent hundreds of dollars which is something I will never do for any game. If I have to pay money to progress further and keep up with most then the game isn’t worth my time at all
Not the same
by INTWTF on 2017/11/21 12:48
Game always reboots. Always have to spend to get better. Just not the same. Think after 3 years time to quit the game.
Not free to play at all
by Skandragon on 2017/11/21 03:34
Sure, you can download the game and start it for free. However, to play in any reasonable way, you either spend over three billion days (not an exaggeration) to build buildings near level 37, or you buy speed ups. The makers of this game are just money grabbing. The inflation is so insane the numbers are difficult to imagine: one thousand trillion trillion. Don’t even start.
Not fun anymore
by Anitabelle on 2017/11/21 02:10
About 4 years ago when I first began playing I gave this game 5 stars AND a rave review. It was fun meeting new people. Growing and collaborating with fellow members to grow and have fun together. MZ only cares about the mighty dollar now and not the player. I have lost many friends and good players because of the insanely stupid upgrades some occurring daily. Do not even start this game unless you are willing to throw down $100.00 Every other day. Major disappointment.
Lost In Upgrades

What happened!
Deceptive Advertising practices
by frontera jazz quartet on 2017/11/20 23:08
Great Game and tons of fun to play. Sometimes and it’s been happening to a lot of us lately aren’t getting what we pay for in these packs they sell. The purchased Pack could say it includes instant multiple researches so you buy the pack only to find out that it’s not working or wasn’t added to your account. The number and amount of upgrading is also getting out of hand. MZ does not give you the time to enjoy those upgrades you spent 100s of dollars on because they hit you with more 1 day later. Not saying it shouldn’t happen but slowing a bit down would make it more enjoyable. The upgrades are coming so fast now every is shielded half the time and so there’s no action. So about 80% you’re spending money and researching or upgrading. IMHO MZ developers are the biggest thieves. ReyChorizon.

by Tibmex on 2017/11/20 04:24
2-3 years ago this game was fun, very cool with nice people from all over the world. Then it started being all about money and this game went from best game to worst game I ever played. If you are ready to spend $99/month or more then this is your game, if not, pass your way.
Failure to communicate
by 😈 Lady ™ 😈 on 2017/11/20 03:46
Out of every game I've toiled with in my life I have to say this is the worst at communicating with a player. Machine Zone is a greedy corporation. I have a receipt from Apple showing I purchased a pack series. MZ states I only paid for the first pack of 19.99. Yet my receipt clearly shows all in the series purchased on the same day within the time allotment. I filed a grievance with Apple and my Credit card company since MZ will not honor their word.
$$$$$$$$$
by AliensRreal on 2017/11/20 03:31
The game is dumb and things don't work. If you have an ego and lots and lots of money, the game is for you, if you can get over things not working 85% of the time.

Worst support ever
by Thelinks on 2017/11/20 02:23
Game broke on me at start of year. Tried 10 times to get them to correct the issue. Each time they treated me as if I were a new player.....hello I had played for over four years. I know or at last thought I knew how to play. They treat their players like imbeciles unless that see hundreds of dollars spent on the account...
Money pit
by Square and compass :. on 2017/11/19 02:53
This game is designed to drain you of money. If you do not spend money there is no way you can compete or enjoy the game itself. And even if you spend $5 thousand dollars (no exaggeration players spend this kind of money) to upgrade your account, you can be attacked and wiped out in 5 mins and you have to start all over. Go play Clash Royale.
Exorbitant
by ebrophy on 2017/11/19 02:03
Impossible to play without dropping $100 each time there's a new update. Your time invested is irrelevant, your money you spent is irrelevant unless it was the most recent pack. They structure things so every new update is an order of magnitude higher than the last. MZ thinks they're smart and that their advertising will save them from these horrendous business practices. They're wrong. Update: still the same. Crap company that needs to be shut down.
Garyowen
by knowerofallthings on 2017/11/19 00:22
This game was an awesome game but Machine Zone has destroyed the game with all the updates that they roll out everyday. You need to constantly spend big dollars and even then you need to stay shielded. There is no strategy to the game anymore it’s who ever spends the most wins and that takes thousands and thousands of dollars. It’s no longer a war game. it’s a gives us your money and push buttons. Take my advise and stay away from the game.
Kinda stinks now
by janemarks on 2017/11/18 21:48
I’ve been playing for two years, at first it was fun and competitive. The problem is they add to the game to frequently, you never catch up and it becomes expensive. This is not a game for children to join. Adults have problems with all the percentages involved and the numbers get to be in the trillions. It has gotten way out of the reach of fun. If you join an alliance you make great friends but since the game has gotten so bad many friends are leaving.
$$$$$
by Multijoys on 2017/11/18 18:00
It’s all about the money you spend, and some people spend hundreds on this game. There are so many variables now, you need a checklist to make sure you have everything set before you can play. I used to be addicted. The rate of updates(translates into requirement to spend money to get what’s needed to stay competitive) killed my addiction, so thanks for that. I spent two years playing to play, not spend all my time upgrading and upgrading.... and upgrading. In short, the game can be challenging, if you have the time after upgrading to play for a few days before you have to spend for the next big thing.
SCAM GAME
by Deadendgamepass123 on 2017/11/18 15:35
You will NEVER be able to compete in this game unless you drop hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Buyer beware. Strictly a money machine with YOU as the LOSER. Don't know why the attorney general has not gone after these guys as their website ..I.e. Chests, perks, rewards are FIXED. There are no random wins. You lose regardless what you choose. You'll understand if you decide to play. Tons of dead accounts and players begging suckers to buy their accounts.
WARNING - Game is being shut down!
by JGB5280670 on 2017/11/18 14:35

Quite the Game (used to be)
by Cyclops on 2017/11/18 12:57
My bud and I were heavily addicted to the game, it captivated my mind even when I was doing other things. I was good, but not awesome, but then wifey kept my credit card receipts for a few months in disgust she threw them down on the table and asked (screamed) For WHAT??? and I saw the ramp up in money spent and time never to be refunded. My bud and I quit the game. Was quite the ride. But... if you can’t see all the warning from almost explayers that are only unhappy due to pay to win - not for being good at something have fun, getting lost here is quite the trip, or at least used to be. Cyclops

Very expensive game in order to enjoy
by pure pain in the wallet on 2017/11/17 01:32
There are people spending several $1,000’s to keep up and be competitive. If not willing it’s horrible to play because you can not compete or defend yourself. Don’t start playing it’s terrible if you don’t want to spend big!
Dead Game
by DarthCouchPotato on 2017/11/16 21:46

Used to be!
by Minnyjr on 2017/11/16 20:32
Used to be able to buy a pack a month and stay competitive! Used to be able to depend on that and fellow alliance members to work together. Now it’s all about buying packs and hitting people when they fall asleep. Not any skill involved. Shame the game was going somewhere until it decided to focus on being a money grab. Sad thing is. If they woulda took it slower. Woulda worked. Now there power levels with gazillion. No lie. A friggin gazillion. Lol. Go ahead spend a grand over time like me. I would highly not recommend game.

Scammers
by Mr massacre855578 on 2017/11/15 06:11
Mz will scam you out of your money. They put out offers of buy a flash sale and unlock free packs but they don’t tell you that you have to buy multiple flash sales to unlock the free packs. They are very manipulative and dishonest about what you are getting when you spend money. Too bad because it is a fun game. You have loyal paying customers so why do you have to be so cloak and dagger about your sales?? Hope this review helps someone not get screwed by mz like I have. Make sure it explains exactly what you are getting if you spend money otherwise don’t do it.
Cute but
by Froganator on 2017/11/14 20:10
Cute game nice graphics but like most established games new people are just good to be fed on by larger established players and alliances. That makes for a less then fun gaming experience. I have recently stopped playing. If you are smaller player all you can do is stay shielded popping you head out to grab some resources. You are always one crash or failure of the Internet away from total destruction. That's what happened to me my net died and cell was dead. So in the 15 minutes it took to reconnect my city was torched and hero captured and will most be likely killed. So I deleted the game and give up.

Absolute garbage
by Jo_MFKn on 2017/11/12 16:47
This game is absolutely garbage! I'd recommend to everyone to stay away from this game. RUN! The greed involved in this game by the developers is totally insane. Daily updates that cost $100, and that's not all, because it will cost at least, at minimum $1K to fully complete the new releases. This game is a joke, DO NOT download this game, no matter how much money you have to spare, it will mean nothing the very next day. Spend $500 today and tomorrow it will literally be worth nothing. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Machine zone destroyed this game. Pathetic!
Rampant
by Icecoldone! on 2017/11/12 13:34
Time consuming endless pit. Plays great but lacks the construction for a smoother mobile device considering getting booted, screen freezes and lagging. Game growth too fast, which has forced many to vacate game, as well as price to maintain. There definitely plenty to do to grow but almost next to no time to complete tasks when learning new stages. Nothing’s for free. Play at your own risk. Ram eater!!!

MZ/GOW is just a greed game now. No skill to it!
by NeverUseWishApp on 2017/11/11 18:04
They advertise packs with headlines to get you to buy, guaranteeing you hero levels, building levels, etc but sometimes there is not enough in the pack to get you to what the headline says. They false advertise. The game is all about greed for MZ now. There is no longer any skill to it. It’s just how much you can buy. They come up with an update a day, taking the fun away from the game. If you’re off three days, expect to be tapping buttons all day to catch up, rather than fighting. I started playing nearly four years ago and it’s a joke now. The only reason I stick around is because of other players. The game itself is a joke and ain’t worth your time or money.
The good ole days
by Cewmommy on 2017/11/11 15:44
I played this game actively for years spending money but last 6 months+ the game creators have taken the fun out of playing unless you are willingly to spend paychecks on them. I have seem active players just quit. I would recommend finding a different game to play. This game glitches so much it is even difficult to get basic plays completed.
Great game- costs lots
by Mas_non on 2017/11/11 07:14
This game is lots of fun but has micro transactions that will get you to put in $1,000+ per month as the packages get better each week or daily. The game was fun back in the day but now it’s Trillion Trillion Trillion Trillion days to create troops and to get that done instantly you have to put lots of money into the game. The amount of money needed to play the game with a fighting chance is outrageously high.
trash
by Keith Von on 2017/11/11 05:49
Used to be really fun but now its terrible its now a pay to win game and its no longer strategy. Keep updating every 48 hours and its ruining the game 👎🏽 atleast wait for a couple of months
If you’re into wasting money..get this app
by trons on 2017/11/11 01:37
Three years ago this was a great game. Well past it’s prime as the game is only towards getting as much money out if you as possible. Lag times of 7+sec; poorly executing scripts; bogged servers and app close outs are the norm. Constant ads to buy!! It’s no longer about skill or fun.
Money grab
by Baked8670 on 2017/11/11 01:35
First, the game looks nothing like the supposed screen shots they show. It used to be you could grow and max out fairly well then they would add a new item. Now, it’s additions everyday. Have to spend to keep up. If you don’t spend, you can’t get in on the action. As others have said, used to be a strategy game. Now it’s a game to see who can spend the most. Not worth your time or money.
Miss the old days
by Wyodaddy76 on 2017/11/10 22:28
Back when we first started GOW it was awesome always wondering what would happen during the day or night. But in the last year MZ (machine zone) has put out have baked updates that barely work or throw the game into glitches that degrade the quality of the game. Also updates used to be one or two a month now a days it’s 4-5 a week all of them costing you a good portion of your hard earned checks just to save the work you had put into this game for all these years when we loved it, and when you complain to MZ about it they use a algorithm to respond to you and refuse to refund money that was wasted.

WASTE OF MONEY
by JD13Cassis on 2017/11/05 14:05
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!!! New Edit: Even when you purchase packs that contained "high roller" for their "casino" it can be revoked and removed. I spent the money to play this game, bought the high roller almost two years ago, and now they claim that I never purchased that pack. Glad I kept my records because I'll be joining any lawsuits against them once one gains steam. FALSE ADVERTISING. NO player-oriented focus. Unless you have thousands of dollars to spend monthly, AVOID THIS GAME. Original: This couldn't be a bigger waste of time and money.... unless you include your effort wasted too. Advice: use any money you'd use towards this game towards ANYTHING but this game. Only play this if you intend on spending massive amounts of money that you probably don't even have.
Disappointed

The golden goose
by LizardCal on 2017/11/04 23:09
Is this even a game anymore? Mz completely ruined this. Doesn't rely on strategy at all unless you count how deep your pockets go. Horrible glitches, they don't care about the players.. just the cash. Daily updates, there's literally no way to get around the paywall without shelling out $100 every time they release stuff. They had it going well, but they got greedy and killed their golden goose. Don't download this.
Game is awful
by Sacato on 2017/11/04 21:14
This game used to be fun and you could be entertained with attainable goals and modest spending. The cost to play after level 22 becomes ridiculous with quantities needed to level up and the time it takes to level up are on a scale that makes more sense. Today, I decided to add some soldiers and the lowest amount that can be created is 10m, after scrounging enough resources from the last purchased package, it will no take 3,999 days to complete. What?! Horrible now :(
Fake reviews

It is a lost cause
by _captain__rex_ on 2017/11/04 11:35
I have had this game FOREVER, and I'm telling you, don't get it. It use to be amazing and you were able to have great battles, but now, it's like our economy, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. What I mean by that is when you start out with a fresh account, you will never make it, so then you have to buy gear, then you level up to 21. But now you need more, it's an endless cycle. But the people like me, we have had this game for years. We've seen the changes, we know what's wrong. There are WAY TOO MANY KINDS OF SOLDIERS. Like come on, the one guy in the bottom of the strategic column can to take a million of the normal solders. There are like 200 different kinds. It's insane. But the people who buy all there gear, there the rulers, and they are a**holes.
Sad
by XxBelatrixX on 2017/11/04 04:21
I've been playing for about a year and I was so into this game for so long... And then upgrade after upgrade started dropping almost daily. Who can keep up with the much money spent every single day? Just ctesse... If you message then you get a generic response even if you've spent thousands of dollars. Let's go back to giving a few months in-between troops and all this crazy stuff. The sad thing is I still want to play. You meet some pretty great people and it's challenging. This game could easily be 5 stars if they catered to the gamers that have invested in this game for so long.
Game of War - Fire Age
by death to game of war on 2017/11/03 19:45
Do not under any condition get this game. The in-app purchases are outrageously expensive for what they give. The customer support is (it’s your fault, you must be doing something wrong, we are never at fault). The game should be called Game of Wallets and your real enemy are the game designers. You have no realistic hope of survival in this game and at the end of the day will have spent thousands of dollars per month with nothing to show for it.
Absolutely ridiculous!
by TripnFel on 2017/11/03 11:42
I have been playing this game since K2 and recently decided to build a new SH in 1122, 3 weeks ago we had an event called the Champion Wonder. I bought 7 packs for the ports to be able to compete with another alliance. Due to MZs mistakes 50% of the people who purchased were not able to port in. I have emailed MZ 19 times to resolve this and the best they will say is “sorry for the inconvenience” if you don’t want to get ripped off and get sent predrafted emails from a company who doesn’t care at all about your gaming experience then GoW is the game for you!

I played the game for 4-5 months and spent more than I’d like to admit. To play and have fun you absolutely have spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Once that money is spent you have to spend more to stay relevant due the game’s updates. Stay away!
Used to be a great game
by MusicMan/ on 2017/10/31 15:26
Old Review: I've been playing this for years and it keeps getting better and better. New review: I've been playing this game for over 4 years. Back when it first came out it was a really fun game where people would build up their empire to compete, and whoever spent time in the game would become powerful. Now it's not about spending time in the game it's about spending money. Any new player could come on, spend a couple hundred bucks and become more powerful than me, even though I have years more of experience. Mz is trying to grow too fast by putting new troops and new ranks in the game every week, and they try to make money by making so the only way you can have these new things is to spend money.
Glitches and lag not worth it.
by BeTrixi on 2017/10/31 14:25
Don’t start this game. It was fun but the greed of developers has surpassed all of the game quality. Everyone that plays this game now has issues and errors and the developers put up expensive upgrades without fixing errors and glitches. I played for 1 hour this morning was kicked form game 9 times and can’t access part of the game dashboard. The enjoyment is not equal to the mass frustration. If you like a good challenging game that runs well, buy a PlayStation or Xbox, or play another non machine zone game. I don’t normally write bad reviews... this is first in years. Take my advise don’t load it.
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.

Mz steals your money
by nursepeppy on 2017/10/30 20:32
MZ does not care about actual customer service! All they care about is the money and not the customer or app issues. They used to have releases weekly which was financially stable, but now they have new releases once or twice in a day which is about $100 each update. And if the app kicks you in the middle of purchasing release packs..you still pay them money and don’t receive the packs. And they then still refuse to help. Alberto was the worst at assisting! Still has not returned my further response to my emails showing proof that I did send them money. Has totally stopped correspondence even when requested to talk to his supervisor on a phone call.

The game is different now, but still fun except for the pak ads every time you tap Athena gifts. They were responsive to my complaints and rectified what Needed to be done. The players are mostly friendly except for the bullies who spend more just to be bullies
Don't bother
by 6DeuceSS on 2017/10/30 04:40
Been playing for a few years. But don't bother. It's a pay to play. Or get zeroed in one hit
Avoid, do not play
by Lord Raahhh on 2017/10/30 04:00
Poor customer service. Only cares about money. The game is rigged to force you to pay tens of thousands of dollars and punishes you if you don't. I like to play a game and earn rewards based on my skill, not cheat and buy my way through.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Used to be fun
by CBKBGB on 2017/10/29 22:21
This game WAS fun and exciting till about 8months ago when the game developers decided to remove all strategic gameplay and make it all about how much and how fast you can spend. ‘Free to play’ is long gone, just a different version of FarmVille. Actual gameplay requires weekly, if not daily, in-app purchases. I’ve been back and forth with MZ customer service, which is a joke, and they pretty much confirmed this. Big shame, was an exciting fun game. Logging in these days is just to reload shields to protect the investment I already made into this game. I’ll have to let it go at some point since MZ doesn’t care about their loyal players that helped get them to where they are now with their game platform. Stay away from this game unless you have extra money that you really don’t want because 1 pack purchase will only last 48hours max. Should also note, images listed here are nothing like the actual game graphics
Won't even load
by Showerbeast on 2017/10/29 20:29
I used to love this game when I first started playing, but now it's become a purely pay-to-play game. You can't do anything anymore without paying for it. Every update gets worse, too. And now the game won't even load. I messaged support and was told to update my device. No hun, your game is just crashing. I have worked on this game for years, but it's really not even worth it anymore.
Don’t start
by Robertfto on 2017/10/29 19:20
Cost too much to play now. Too many updates too fast. If you don’t spend $ everyday then you get left behind. The packs you buy today for $100 will be available next day or so for $10. Not worth it.
There is no end to what MZ will do to get $$$
by PonieTail on 2017/10/29 12:56
New players beware, there is no loyalty too players in this game. I have played 3 years and put thousands of $$$ and worked hard to build a glorious empire. I know stupid me! But who knew a new player can buy just 1 $100.00 pack and out build you versus a player that built for years. Destroying you with one hit, not even a rally, and all your power, money, and time you put into building is gone. Oh yes, they put a lot in even a small pack, but they are just baiting you. There is always one item missing you need to become stronger than your enemy. So it’s just a matter of time when you realize it’s an endless cycle and all you paid for is worth nothing. Run do not pay MZ for just a day or week of fun because a newer player that has no clue just spent less than you did and spent less time than you did AND Beat You.😳 MZ’s rating are dropping every month because players are realizing it’s a trap. Go put your money into a game you can keep what you build, you loose all your troops, speed ups and power to just one hit to a player that is now MTTT strong. Once I thought a trillion was powerful. What is MTTT power anyways, and how can one player get that strong in just a day? Really😡
Good game to waste time
by KensW0rld on 2017/10/29 04:41
Used to be a great game, but most original players have left. They re-allocated a lot of server space to other games so the game crashes a lot
Is all about money
by Disturbingfist on 2017/10/28 18:48
In order too succeed in this game you have to spend thousands of dollars. Not worth it
Problematic
by Dump Mz Apple on 2017/10/28 11:30
This game is so full of flaws anymore it’s not even funny. Mz caters to the people who can afford to drop $500-$600 a day but can’t even fix simple reoccurring glitches. When you do complain to them you get very lackluster responses which have been proven to be just copy and paste replies that 99.9% of the time place blame on you the consumer and your devices. Updates are now getting to be twice a day with new drops and seems like even those are not even tested in beta due to the high amount of glitches that come with each one. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME!!!!! Apple needs to do the same as google and put Machine Zone under review for the massive amounts of complaints.
Fix random crashes
by Johnryann on 2017/10/28 08:23
I love the game, but am getting really sic of the crashes, fix this please
Money Hungry!!
by LoganF24 on 2017/10/28 01:52
Fun game at first, then you hit a certain point where you have to spend money to grow so you buy a few packs to keep up but unless your spending $20-100 constantly you will never keep up and once you fall behind you can’t un-shield or you will get zeroed. The only good thing is when you find a cool alliance, they become like family when you talk to them. I’ve been in my same alliance for almost a year and the people are super cool but MZ is always wanting more money.
Ridiculousness
by MonkeyMom2dd on 2017/10/27 18:45
MZ has completely destroyed this game. Upgrades come out every couple of days without allowing players to familiarize themselves with all the aspects of the new features. Additionally, they don’t seem to be actually quality controlling the releases. The game is glitchy and will constantly drop even when playing on a very high speed, high quality connection. Half the features don’t work. MZ constantly double bills for their in app purchases, so that is always a fight. Most of the time the packs are missing pieces. MZ takes a huge amount of time to respond and then they don’t fix the issue. There are issues that MZ hasn’t been able to resolve for 5 months now. This is a horrible game. The only good thing has been our group chat. I have met a great bunch of people who are fun to converse with after a long day.
Amazing game
by Ncgamom on 2017/10/27 11:08
I really like this game I haven’t been able to take my fave out of it for the last 6 hours
Bitely6
by Bitely on 2017/10/27 09:04
I used to enjoy the game until MZ turned it into a money pit. Alot of my friends no longer play. One cannot advance without buying a plethora of packs and spending hundreds of dollars. However ; even after doing so One doesn't get ahead. It's gotten very complicated. MZ doesn't care about making the players happy. They are interested in getting money from you. It's at the point where one can't advance their research or strong hold without buying a pack. The game has also gotten very complicated. I don't blame my friends for leaving. I just stay to check in and collect gifts and what not. Other than that I don't recommend this game to anyone. Don't waste your time and money.
Horrible Customer Support
by MZareCROOKS on 2017/10/26 00:44
Been waiting over 1 Month to be able to use Items I have Purchased to Play The Game. I'm Still waiting. Heard there was a Class Action Civil Suit about to be Filed against this Company. Fraudulently taking Money and Not giving customers what they pay for. If you haven't already spent Money on this App I Would Highly Recommend that you DONT.
Get rid of the only been able to train 10 mill troops at the least
by Isaac Douglass on 2017/10/26 00:05
I love this gave and the realism but I hate the tttm m mmm stuff no one actually has the much money in the game. And no one in real back then had that much money. Plus quit with the stupid buy gold adds
Good game gone extremely wrong!
by Seadung on 2017/10/25 23:13
A couple years ago This was a very cool game!! Now it's all about Money🤔. If you don't spend a hundred dollars a week you can do nothing but chat and stay shielded. I suggest Facebook or some other social media that doesn't cost u your house and a bad credit score 🙈😂😂. Anyways I give this game 👎👎 even if I was a millionaire I would rather spend it on pokeyballs 😝😝😝. Everyone. needs to quit it👎🍻
Totally ruined with everyday updates
by Imalahat on 2017/10/25 13:25
Just don't play , totally ruined with daily updates , to be able to play need to spend big money, don’t get confused with starter packs , need at least spend $100 a week to be able to play , if you not spending money you will be shielded 24/7 and just socialize in the chats ,
Getting tired of it
by BLACK ARIA on 2017/10/25 03:12
I get kicked off the game every five minutes trying to boost. The upgrades are coming to fast. I imagine out of greed and the lag is getting worse by the day.
Waste of time and money
by supermancwl on 2017/10/24 17:57
This game is the biggest rip off in the app store. Play for free is a scam. It takes hundreds to thousands of dollars per week to keep up with the insane amount of releases they put out.
Terrible game. Not even a game anymore
by Dawg1966 on 2017/10/24 11:02
This app is no longer a game. It is impossible to grow your account through gameplay. The only way to increase strength is through upgrade $$$ packs. Spending money is not a game. There is no skill required. MZ-the publisher of GOW has really screwed up the entire experience of the app. Stay away from this game. Buy an Xbox and a 50” tv. That will be much much cheaper. And don’t kid yourself that you won’t end up spending $$$ on this game. To be competitive or even participate you have to drop $400-$600 a month.
Bad deal
by Ted 420 on 2017/10/24 04:14
The game was fun when slow and cheap in the beginning 1-2 years ago, but now there are daily and weekly updates. If you don’t buy updates you will not be able to compete.
Avoid
by Dis appoint Ed on 2017/10/24 03:42
I started game of war (GOW) three years ago. It was entertaining and I enjoyed the alliance with people all over the world. But for the past year and a half the only strategy is to spend lots of money to stay competitive. There is no room for thrifty gamers in GOW.
Dont recommend
by disappointed in Epic War on 2017/10/23 19:05
I started playing approximately 4 yrs ago when I first started the game was fun and worked well, now there are so many issue that mz is aware of and responds with their typical form letter of “force close the app, blah blah blah”. When the biggest player in the game is zeroed multiple times I think there is an issue, you are forced to spend or leave the game no in between unfortunately. We as an alliance kinda started to keep track we all get booted at the same time and it is multiple times in an hr, this game is pretty much unplayable anymore. It is sad I have made so many friends had some awesome laughs and great times. Farewell GOW its been real.
Updates to excessive
by gmanmatt on 2017/10/23 14:26
I played probably 6-8months and honestly it was fun the first 2-3 months the upgrade rate was prob 3-4 weeks and towards the end it had to be every week. It was to excessive you couldn’t compete anymore being a middle class player. They jumped to tier 4 troops and gem boosts and ruins and potions and banners and more, I jus said enough was enough and quit paying cuz that was what I was doing not playing, save your time and money cuz I regret the time and money I spent. If ur currently playing good luck loosing your retirement trying to stay competitive.
Disappointing return for me
by RikyB on 2017/10/23 13:33
Social aspect - 4.0 Stars Game play - 0.2 Stars Developer support - 1.0 Stars Started playing GOW quite awhile ago. It was fun, kind of addicting and the social aspect rivaled by none (at least in my opinion). When they introduced cores I really didn't have the time to invest in learning how to use them so I quit playing. Recently I downloaded the game again and major disappointment ensued. It has become a horrendous click fest and money grab by MZ. The lags / delays in pulling up the troop list for marches got exponentially worse with the higher tiers of troops and there appears no end in sight as to the level the developer will take them. This makes any investment today worthless within a week (sometimes less) and the incessant tap, tap, tap to access items / training that aren't covered by use all or similar option is actually quite annoying.
Meh😒
by NaSims1 on 2017/09/02 02:29
Few years ago when I started playing the game, it was fun and exciting. The game gave you a purpose for logging on and staying up late. No matter what your power level was or your alliance ranking, you wanted to log on so you can build, grow and train your army to trod the battlefield field, attack your enemies and watch them Burn. Now, it's all about money. It is no longer a strategic game. It more about who can spend the most money to upgrade their "Stronghold" then brag about it. When you joined a good alliance you were able to work together and grow. NOW, the game forces you and the alliance to spend money to upgrade and the packages are expensive. Sometimes it give you nice discount on the packages, but who wants to spend their waking moments chasing down a deal for upgrades. While I do understand that you have to spend a little money and I was aware of that when I decided to play the game, but come on guys it's getting a little excessive. I find that more people are deciding to leave the game some of which are the founding members of there alliance and this is sad. Even though we write about the issues we have with the game, it seems that it will never change. Game of Wars will continue to do what is best for them and not their loyal gamers. It's sad to say but If you are new to the game and are thinking about starting to play, I would recommend spending your money on something else
game ruined by daily updates & MZ greed
by saltfork squatch on 2017/08/27 14:22
this used to be an incredibly fun game, but has taken a serious turn for the worse in the last few months...it is not a "FREE" game...sure, you can download it for free, but don't expect to be able to play...the math used makes absolutely zero sense...they don't even use real numbers to calculate anything...what exactly is 1KTT...lol...they use these unreal numbers to complete fuse and bait people to spend money...they put stuff in their packs, and never deliver the goods...it's always "bait & switch"...advertising things in packs that you never receive...I have been playing for almost 4 years and remember when they had their "GUARANTEED last VIP level ever at VIP 20"...that was a huge lie & marketing ploy...you can now obtain VIP 200...there have to be several laws that this company is violating by fraudulent advertising...the better business bureau & fair trade commission should be contacted by anyone who ever spent money, because MZ has robbed us all & continue to lie in their advertising...also, if you have an issue, don't expect any customer service to help...they do t actually have customer service...everything is an automated response & they never address the issues brought to their attention...I used to tell everyone to play this game, but now, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...stay away from this game & anything else MachineZone has their name on
Ok, but...
by Bev BV on 2017/10/22 06:53
It’s a visually stunning and complex game, I’ll give Machine Zone that. Still, you cannot play this game and make any real progress without paying a LOT of money. There is no end to the amount of spending you will have to do in order to keep up with the game as the engineers continually add more things that you will feel compelled to obtain/achieve to maintain relevance and a sense of accomplishment. This is how they hook you. The constant gaming evolution would otherwise be a gamer’s dream-come-true, save for the fact that these things are NOT attainable for free or by “waiting it out.” You MUST spend money. And not just $20 here or there... I’m talking about hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To top of it all off, despite the exorbitant amount of revenue this game generates, there is still an inexcusable amount of glitches and lag within the game, as well as slow & incompetent customer service when problems arise. Bottom line, DON’T download this game unless you are prepared to drop loads of cash to “enjoy yourself.” Otherwise, don’t even bother. Take it from me; I have played this game for several years now, and I can attest to all of this from very personal (and financial) experience.
Just Nasty
by Fun... But... 😔 on 2017/10/22 21:20
MZ, just stop. Your advertisements are annoying, especially when you make us not only watch a video, but actually play the "game". The game you show does not even have good graphics, and it was probably copied from a primitive tower defense game. Needless to say, this "video" advertisement is nothing like GOW at all. However, I would argue that this tower defense game is more fun than the sht MZ gives us. I haven't even gotten into the real gameplay yet! We have people here, downloading the game because they like tower defense games, only to find that it is a game like Goodgame Empires. This is not okay. And the biggest problem is is that you might want to spend your life savings on this game, but not only do the packs come late (sometimes a week later), one hit from another player and boom! Your SH is gone. This game is an absolute disgrace and is only fun if you spend thousands (trust me, people have). This game was ruined by greedy developers. Edit: If I could, I would rate it 0 stars. I thought it was bad in December of 2016 but I was wrong. MZ comes out with new updates every day and you literally have to spend hundreds of dollars a week to catch up to not even the top players, but just the medium sized players. I am just done, and I am quitting forever.
Glitchy money pit
by LadyAnna1 on 2017/10/13 16:43
The game used to be fun. I've played since it was released! The good old days. In July 2017 a stronghold 40 was max... now it at 305. In line with the speed of all new releases... at troop level 18 now from t4 . You HAVE to buy to play this game... you cannot play without buying a minimum of $500 a month at minimum. But if you the money it's fine right? WRONG.. for a software company the have horrible programmers that can't keep the game functioning as intended😆. For a YEAR now the game has been plagued with glitches so bad your purchases cannot even be used! Ticket after ticket to MZ support and no fix in sight. They don't care about their players or the gaming experience at all... it's all about making money and customer service is nonexistent. This company should be sued for their false advertisements and not providing the game capabilities PURCHASEd by players... myself included. Today I quit because I realize the game will never work properly and the company doesn't care,., as long as people keep buying they keep profiting
The Rich prey on the Weak
by MCAS77 on 2017/09/29 05:31
I've been playing for 4 months now. I feel it's time to leave a proper review. Please. Don't. Stop... do not download this app. 1) it's addictive... fun right? No! Like an illegal drug you will spend money, wanting to advance to become the biggest and baddest kingdom in the land. Well... packages to upgrade start at $4.99. You buy one thinking oh that's not bad. From there they hit you with $19, $59, $79 and oh yes, $99 packages to upgrade! Don't be like me and think oh I'll just buy the $19 packages... it adds up! At a certain level, you HAVE to pay to upgrade!!!! There are players in this game that PAY $100's of dollars to become level 125! Only the RICH can do it! Plus, to upgrade buildings, it takes multiple days sometimes it takes a billion trillion trillion days!!! I AM NOT LYING. They give you speed up Day tokens, you have to pay for them of course. So many have stopped playing. A lot of castles sitting around without peace shields. They can't afford it and neither can I! Shame on you MZ!!😡
Once upon 3 years ago..
by D3w4eva on 2017/09/28 04:35
3 years ago I played game of war religiously. I loved the game, my alliance was fun to talk to and we became a second family of sorts. The gameplay was simple, play wisely to unlock higher level troops to participate in a fun kingdom kill event each month. As the game grew it turned into kingdom vs kingdom which was pretty neat. Then something changed. It became a complete pay to win and almost pay to play with 100$ purchases thrown at you to make you one of the big boys. Now after a 2 year break it has gotten worse. The 20$ packs are just for show, you still easily throw down 100$ a month on this game because new content that you HAVE to buy— no possible way to earn it in game— comes out almost literally daily. It’s ridiculous. The kingdoms are full of dead accounts of people who have long since given up trying to catch up and I’m on the verge of the same... again. Was a great game hence 3 stars. But be warned, it is pay to play now.
MZ has gone insane
by Decadave on 2017/08/08 20:18
I started playing GoW a while ago, and the developer used to have updates every week or two. You had time to get caught up on all of the new research/building levels/troops between updates. Additionally, the updates were modest in how much improvement they gave to a player. If you didn't purchase a new pack, it wouldn't mean that you were irrelevant...it just meant that you weren't going to win the big battles. Over the last month, MZ has literally been offering new releases every day. If you want to be a strong player, you have to spend money daily. These new releases make players stronger by an order of magnitude. You can go from being the ruler of your kingdom, to a player that has all of his troops killed by a single attack two days later, if you don't buy new packs. MZ is running people out of this game at an incredible pace, because they can't afford to pay. It was a fun game, but now it just costs too much.
Extreme spending required to play
by NTJedi on 2017/08/09 04:40
A growing greed is the only focus of these developers. There's literally "zero" creativity with game updates and features... as every single one requires big spending and only adds increased attack types or defense types to your stats. Lots of dead features like forging items, treasure maps and killing monsters give old worthless rewards... VERY BORING. Game events also are old worthless rewards. You literally have all troops die with a single enemy attack even if you've spent hundreds in the game! Advertisements to buy packs spam your game mail too! LOTS of players spreading the news to avoid any games from Machine Zone such as Final Fantasy because the developers don't bring new ways of gaming fun, they only add higher stats costing more money. The only people still playing are the ones who spent lots of money in the game... and MZ pushing them away with the constant new updates needing more money from gamers.
Used to be fun

Think twice
by MZ needs professional help on 2017/08/28 07:44
Before installing Game of War. Once a fun game, it's now nothing more then a ticking time bomb. The summer of 2017 has brought about endless updates, that are almost daily.(Once monthly, then biweekly then weekly in the days of yore.) Miss even one and you won't enjoy the results. Unless you just won the lottery to spend ridiculous amounts of money, you won't be able to play for long. MZ has lost their mind and decided to see just how much cash they can squeeze from this cow before it becomes their next burger combo. The thing about daily updates are all the bugs introduced that often go unfixed. This includes the game packs you can purchase. Don't believe what the pack offer reads, it's a crap(50/50) shoot if you'll actually get what's advertised. Forget about customer service, its automated and they seem to delight in ignoring you every way possible. Except your money, they'll gladly take all of that.

by MakivilGOST on 2017/10/23 03:42
I’ve been playing this game for over 3 years. It was an excellent game at first. I took 3 years to build my city and troops, and witching less than 10 seconds it was all wiped away because I refuse to spend on another $20-$99 for another pack. Now I only log on to say hello to friends from my alliance to say hello. Besides, you can spend $99 today and tomorrow you can get a similar pack for $20 but the pack is now ancient after they update the game regularly and when they do they add another feature that forces you to spend more money or become obsolete as a player. I actually do not mind spending a few dollars for packs but this is becoming ridiculous. I’m too far in to quit but I rather become obsolete than give MZ another dime. I’ll probably spend $20 every six months to stay obsolete but I will never spend $20-$40 a week to stay current. I hope MZ is reading this because you just lost another loyal customer.
Best to Worst
by ahalia on 2017/08/10 09:21
BGame was so good i played for years and had many accounts and loved the game. sadly now it's all about how fast they can take your money. Be ready to be convinced and justify spending money$$$$ . $300 a month will not even close to get you into the fun if there is any left. Not even ppl spending $5000 a week are having fun anymore. You need a lot of time to prepare and click eternally here and there all to be zeroed in one hit. Graphics are bad. This game was the best game ever but between the scams, the lies, the Mz math, the terrible customer service and that you get ripped off on your own purchases and no refunds it's just not a good game to choose to play. I stay on for my friends, just chat and kill monsters. Not spending any more money here. Mz if you reading this you must know that if you did a game with less updates(greed) you'd have more people. I'm guessing Mz prefers to have few high spending idiots than lots of gamers.
Not free anymore
by Jennifer P 1979 on 2017/10/29 23:25
I have been playing for 3 years and in the last few months MZ has been dropping new releases almost on a daily basis. Our kvks are barely once a month. They tend to bring a new release prior to a kvk without the ability to utilize the release. I was a rally leader and have a trap. As of April 28, 2017, hero 81-85 was released along with 4 new gem sets, new core and a defense gear. All within days of each other. We barely had the chance to adjust with t6s and the new VIP and now pretty much everyone is quitting and soon I will be one of them. I just wish MZ would stop with the releases and bring back the weekly kvks and give everyone time to adjust. We don't need any more releases for at least a year. Since August the hero and VIP has more than doubled along with the buildings. You need to be able to afford this game to play now as you need to be maxed just to play. It is no longer fun anymore. Do not download the game.
Don’t waste your time
by Sosa916 on 2017/09/28 20:06
I started playing this game 5 years ago with my son and was fun he social aspect. The battles. And slow growth. It took them 3.5 years too give us T5’s Troops and now we have T13’s with different gear dropping daily and no time to even learn new troops, new gear. It is all about greed now more then letting your loyal gamers have fun and battle. Everything has gotten out of hand so much do that you can a ridiculous amount of troops which take money and resources to build gone in just 1 attack. It’s sad to say after I was zeroed my son told me it’s time to quit. And as hard as it is I must say I have to agree with him. It has become To expensive to enjoy or even try.. I miss the good old days. So with a heavy heart of saying goodbye to dear friends it’s time to walk away.. and messaging machine Sind dies nothing as they don’t care and give generic responses.. signing off ArcanumLove
GoW-the biggest $$$$$ trap ever

I played GoW for 2 years, grew with the game, took over a clan as leader... now I avoid this game like the plague it is. To keep from having others attack you and take everything from your supplies to your hero, you'll need to stay shielded. To stay shielded you'll need shields, and they cost. You can earn some, but not enough to stay safe. If you don't and just get zeroed, you'll likely be talked to by your leader about not bringing the attention to the hive, or kicked out of the clan to survive alone. It's all about the money. Money in exchange for the latest research and skills ladder they build (expect these regularly), money for shields, money for... everything. One of my players racked up $10,000 in debt in one year on this game, and he was a modest spender. If you're not rich, this isn't the game for you. I had to go cold turkey and just walk away.
Can't succeed at this game without going broke.

I used to play years ago and did great and belong to a top team. I was a level four and enjoyed playing. Than my IPad broke. I recently got a new one and downloaded the game and my profile. I had thousands of chests and upgrades from my city just hanging out. Everything was gone so I put up a week long shield and used all the stuff that had accumulated to build and upgrade for the week. Right when my shield expired I was attacked, destroyed and my hero taken. There are just to many massive players who spend tons of money, to accomplish anything in this game. You work all hard at it and ultimately become a farm for bigger fish. There should be some kind of levels or something, how do you defend when you're a level 18 city and a level 80 comes along and wipes the floor with you? No fun, not worth the time...
Might as well just flush $$$$$$$ down the toilet…….
by Dirtè on 2017/08/06 19:29
Unless you do nothing but spend money in this game, you are destined to lose. Sometimes MZ (the developers) will drop your shield while you’re sleeping, and in turn lose all your troops/power. Played for a year, spent around $1200……last night they must’ve dropped my shield…..woke up completely dead (yet somehow my shield was still active; Hmmmm - money making scheme?) Basically, last night I lost $1200 with nothing to show. With heavy hitters spending $50k+++++ on it, just expect to spend money and be killed. If I’d known this from the start, never would have downloaded it (don’t even get me started on the CONSTANT updates they do, so you’re forced to spend more money to keep up). Sooooo, DO NOT DOWNLOAD/PLAY this game…..you will hate yourself for it later on, and will have a much lower figure on your bank statement.
Always was pay to win
by hate family guy on 2017/09/09 18:05
To all the people saying it used to be play to win...it's always been pay to win. If you've been playing long enough you'd know that back in the day (at least when I first spent money) it would cost at least $1,000 to get tier 4 troops and good gear. The cost hasn't changed other than if you wait a week you can max out your account for like $30. The people in your alliance make it fun. Want to destroy people? Spend $1,000 or more a month, want to trap, spend $200 a month. Research isn't as important anymore as good gear and a ton of troops are. It used to be that with the right research you would ruin the day for the biggest spenders. Now you have to max research, current gear and more troops than the galaxy has particles
Extremely frustrating
by Fhzdjncxxh on 2017/10/31 03:04
I started this game back when a level 21 stronghold was the best anyone had, and that's when this game was the most fun. You didn't have to spend a ton of money to actually make progress. Now it's 2017 the day before Halloween and the stronghold level is 300 and the game has lost everything that made it fun. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to spend a little money here and there but it's absolutely ridiculous at this point, don't even bother with this game. Also almost everyone is afraid to drop their shield because they'll get zeroed by someone who spent more money then they did, and no one wants to lose their investments hence the shielding. MZ if your reading this which I doubt, just stop now no more update designed to take people's money, we cant stand it anymore.
Don't download...
by Basiaczek on 2017/09/13 13:27
I'm an uber rational, careful spender. Peaceful woman. New mother. Serial budgeter (with a fat account, still, frugal...). Seriously. If somebody told me the amount of money I'd spend on GOW a year ago, I would never believe. In two months I had spent four figures and then - in a split second of rational thinking - I asked MZ to kill my account rather than sell it or give it away. That game is super fun, terribly addictive and unbelievably expensive. You'll likely meet great people who you'll fall in love with. You will think about this game ALL THE TIME. You will check every hour if there's a rally going on to join in and have fun... And you'll spend your kids college fund... I left in May and I still have an urge to log in and start a new account just to check on my alliance mates and see where they are. Anyone here from Calandria? Any updates? Sheesh...
Constant charge issues!
by IrritatedConsumer on 2017/08/13 07:28
I enjoy playing the game but yes MZ is constantly coming up with high dollar packs required to progress through the game then when you buy packs you better watch your charges very closely. Itunes or MZ seems to wait days before charging your account and other times it's charged immediately! So when you buy a pack suddenly you'll find charges for 2 packs and if you don't watch your account closely you won't notice it..even after contacting support and giving them the dates and charges to my account they continue to tell me it's a delay charge for up to 10 days! Sometimes it is delayed but I watched every charge closely and I was being double charged on certain instances. I say watch your account closely. Good luck!
Money pit
by Jblair41 on 2017/08/10 13:09
Gow is a great game, or at least it used to be before it turned into a money pit. To stay competitive and up to date, takes at least $100 a week. You used to be able to play at a decent level without having to spend at all, but now in order to do almost anything worth your time, you have to be completely up to date. If you have not started playing, DON'T. If you haven't spent money yet, Delete the app now before you are lured into MZ's trap. There are far to many variations of this game from other developers to warrant spending anything on this game, unless you are already hooked and invested in this game, as many of us who have been playing for a very long time are.
From extreme fun to very expensive, monotonous and impossible
by chazbzmom on 2017/08/24 00:43
This game was super fun, allows for real time war & rallies etc. I loved it! but it really was expensive. That was 6 weeks ago. Now it seems that the upgrades are too fast and furious & making competition much more difficult & astronomical spending just to keep competitive. The game was already 3 years old when I started, I started 3 months ago. Lvl 35 was the max. Now lvl 70 is the max. It's no longer fun & strategy, it is obsessive tapping to research skills, train troops, upgrade bldgs. I spend literally hours a day and hundreds in the last month & I can still barely battle another player. 3 mos ago, it was competitive & I could play on less than 50 usd a month, be competitive and it was super fun, an escape from real life. Now it is harder than real life. Just don't bother.
This game is a scam
by Bahzad123456 on 2017/10/19 15:54
This game is a complete scam, other than taking your money they will not care about anything. The only good thing is the friends you make in this game. My advice is, don’t download this game, but if you do, don’t ever buy anything they offer, just stay in there and make friends. Logical issues: 1 - while this game is a money hole for mz, don’t expect to just pay a one time fee, you are expected to spend an average of $500 per day just to be able to play. 2- packs that are being sold don’t even make sense, you would have everything in a pack and just as in bedazzled you will be missing something all the time too. 3 - as soon as you touch that buy button your money is gone, no refunds and mz won’t care. 4 - what would be sold for $1000 in any given day, it will be $10 the next day. Technical issues: 1 - game crashes, freezes all the time 2 - chat freezes all the time 3 - game is slow as hell 4 - game does crazy things for no reason 5 - there is no technical support, whatever you tell them, they will still give you no answer. Who am I? I have played this game for over a year, one of the top and was famous in the game, my game name is deepimp4ct, you can ask around.
Deceptive Advertising practices
by frontera jazz quartet on 2017/11/20 23:08
Great Game and tons of fun to play. Sometimes and it’s been happening to a lot of us lately aren’t getting what we pay for in these packs they sell. The purchased Pack could say it includes instant multiple researches so you buy the pack only to find out that it’s not working or wasn’t added to your account. The number and amount of upgrading is also getting out of hand. MZ does not give you the time to enjoy those upgrades you spent 100s of dollars on because they hit you with more 1 day later. Not saying it shouldn’t happen but slowing a bit down would make it more enjoyable. The upgrades are coming so fast now every is shielded half the time and so there’s no action. So about 80% you’re spending money and researching or upgrading. IMHO MZ developers are the biggest thieves. ReyChorizon.
DO NOT PLAY
by 38:'k&/!2 on 2017/08/08 19:36
I started the game near its beginning. It was the first of its kind, it was such a fun game to play. It's always been pay to play, but in the beginning you could become powerful without paying... just took time. Now, the game has made a complete 180. Resource tiles are useless now because the requirements to upgrade buildings or do research and train troops are outrageous. For example, a tile may have a few million resources on it, but to train a good amount of troops, you will need at least 5TT resources... 5 Trillion Trillion resources... And now, they have new research that cannot be completed without buying... IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ADVANCE IN THESE NEW RESEARCHES FOR TROOPS WITHOUT BUYING BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENTS ARE ONLY FOUND IN PACKS. People spend 1,000s of dollars per week to be good. People have dropped 100k's and even a million dollars to be the best. That is unbelievable. The statistics are insane now, with people having gear that gives them BT% attack... unbelievable. And not to mention terrible graphics and game lag. The only thing good about the game is the social aspect. Have made some great friends throughout my time playing . My advice... unless you want to spend your hard-earned money on a digital game, DO NOT DOWNLOAD
Money Pit! AVOID!
by David in Pittsburgh on 2017/09/03 05:33
This is NOT a free game. It is now at the point where you must buy to progress. I have friends who have spent thousands of dollars a month on this game and for nothing. MZ has complete new releases every week making all the money spent on prior upgrades worthless. It is very common practice in strategy games like these for players to "max" their accounts. And in this one it costs so much money - due to all of the upgrades to stay current that MZ is now dropping each week. Major upgrades that cost quadrillion's of resources and upgrade days where a year ago it was on a normal scale of hundreds to billions. How do you keep track of 12 BTTTT? I mean what number is that? It's a joke. And it's time as a game has come to a close. Avoid this game as well as Mobile Strike and Final Fantasy as they too, are run by Machine Zone (MZ)!!!!
Warning- it's expensive to play
by jcreativemonster on 2017/09/28 13:59
Although I enjoy the game, it's designed so that you have to put money into it or be attacked continually because you can't get strong enough to protect yourself or advance. There should be more opportunities to earn larger quantities of gold rather than purchasing bundles, especially for the newer players. I've recommended the game to many players who gave up due to lack of funds. Overall the game reminds me of World of Warcraft with alliances and potion making and quests but on a smaller scale. As an update, the rating has gone down due to the requirement of purchasing a pack in order to advance. My friends and I have each gotten to a point that we cannot advance without purchasing packs- which we refuse to do. This is ridiculous. I highly recommend you do not play.
Used to be a great game
by MusicMan/ on 2017/10/31 15:26
Old Review: I've been playing this for years and it keeps getting better and better. New review: I've been playing this game for over 4 years. Back when it first came out it was a really fun game where people would build up their empire to compete, and whoever spent time in the game would become powerful. Now it's not about spending time in the game it's about spending money. Any new player could come on, spend a couple hundred bucks and become more powerful than me, even though I have years more of experience. Mz is trying to grow too fast by putting new troops and new ranks in the game every week, and they try to make money by making so the only way you can have these new things is to spend money.
Money?
by annonymoustrex225791 on 2017/09/12 13:53
This game is great things are locked to money though. Remember this game does not have ads at all. It only puts tiny ads to advertise itself on the screen. So of course they have some expensive and some cheap stuff. They need the money to run. It will never be free because it needs a revenue. I'm just happy that when I bought two packs the first was 10 dollars then the next was 20. I was worried that the price would increase to 30 dollars but they keep things at 19 dollars and also have more expensive stuff. I'm glad they considered people's price range.
I love the game but...
by BillyJack68 on 2017/08/14 18:12
Due to recent greed by the developers of this game a lot of people including myself have decided to step away. Many have completely quit. I love the game, but the constant expensive updates with no time in between to allow normal people to catch up has made the game no longer fun! Many times I've gone from a maxed account and in 2 days I'm so far behind that it's insane. New gear, research, gems, and other boosts and add ons are coming at such an alarming rate that only wealthy players can compete. The game has been "dumbed down" so now all you need is money to win. No skill or strategy required! The developers have also refused to repair any of the problems with the game. Constant glitches, freeze ups and being kicked from the game at the most inopportune times.
Pay to Win
by Tithquintarian on 2017/08/03 01:24
This is advertised to be a free game. It is a pay to win immediately game. That is not a typo. You want to win? Grab a BIG credit card. Or find an Alliance that caters to helping those that want to play for free and be ready for a very very long game. Also, there are no restrictions on Chat at all. NC17 does not begin to cover it. Most days it is utterly offensive and I am not easy to offend. Can it be fun? Yes, you just need to find a group of like minded people. Can you play for free? Yes, it takes months and possibly years. Are there issues? Yes, but tell me what game does not have issues. You get out of it what you put into it. Pure and simple. This game is as much fun as any other I have played. Just be prepared for the ups and the downs. Find a group that matches your play style. And be warned, there are hyper competitive people with really deep pockets spending thousands to not care about anyone else. Play, but play your way.
Don't go down this road
by JDOMagic on 2017/09/30 04:03
This was once a fun and exciting game. Now it is a game where someone who has spent thousands and thousands on it can be made completely irrelevant and useless over night by nightly releases that you need to spend about 300 dollars on per night to remain active or able to play at all. They are clearly killing the game on purpose but it is hard for many including myself to let go of something they have spent thousands on and years plaything. Unfortunately, all that money and time is disrespected and made worthless every night by MZ. The creators of this game should be ashamed of themselves. This is the first public complaint against anything I have made in my whole life and I was once one of the biggest spender/players in the game.
It's okay
by Sis12321 on 2017/08/09 13:53
Not much goes on unless you advance fast. The game does ask you to spend money because it will help you reach top levels. So far I haven't since my alliance is very helpful but I have thought about it. It does not help that each time you log in there is a advertisement for $4.99 offering goodies you can't resist. I enjoy the game but equally hate it. I think many should join and try it out if you don't want to spend money then be patient but if you do its your choice. I do recommend the game to people that want to communicate with others and achieve.
Bitely6
by Bitely on 2017/10/27 09:04
I used to enjoy the game until MZ turned it into a money pit. Alot of my friends no longer play. One cannot advance without buying a plethora of packs and spending hundreds of dollars. However ; even after doing so One doesn't get ahead. It's gotten very complicated. MZ doesn't care about making the players happy. They are interested in getting money from you. It's at the point where one can't advance their research or strong hold without buying a pack. The game has also gotten very complicated. I don't blame my friends for leaving. I just stay to check in and collect gifts and what not. Other than that I don't recommend this game to anyone. Don't waste your time and money.
Don't even bother
by *Beckita* on 2017/08/12 14:06
The game is not bad even though the graphics aren't the best, is the greedy developers of MZ, updates every single day, and we are talking about packages of 100 usd, at the beginning it offers you a package of 4.99 usd, that is the hook, you won't be a strong player if you don't invest daily and if you aren't a strong player you can't play at burning other players. They have add insane amounts of updates making the game ridiculous, without spending money here you can only use the chat. Not worth it, believe the reviews, the game is a must spend daily and not that good at all. You will regret if you download this game, i was in the game for 6 months and i invested the amount of a new car, and it was never enough.
This company feeds on people's addiction
by MattTheHulk on 2017/08/31 04:47
I stop playing gow bc I have spent lots of money over times just to catch up and try to be apart of an team then you get few players sometimes even one big players that will spend 1000's and day at time and could kill an entire teams my then self just bc there super rich ppl this game is only for the super rich to enjoy bc it based on who has money most to blow in an game and still put food in the table. This game is no different than gambling but you could never win your money back. It an big addiction to many ppl. That some at willing to loss it all just to play it crazy. I think in lots of case ppl need rehab bc it like crack and herion to many ppl with no end in sight
All about money
by HFakter on 2017/09/12 14:46
When I started playing the game it was about strategy, building and then achieving rewards for growth & success. And yes you had to invest money in the game even then. But now to unlock your growth opportunities you must buy nearly everything. More and more growth & advancement is tied to how much money you spend. My account has been stagnant for nearly a year because I refuse to continue to pump money into this game. It has become less appealing to login daily and play the game. It would be so much better if the mix of money & play were more balanced. Eventually my interest in this game will be lost not because of "the game" but because of "the money".
MZ/GOW is just a greed game now. No skill to it!
by NeverUseWishApp on 2017/11/11 18:04
They advertise packs with headlines to get you to buy, guaranteeing you hero levels, building levels, etc but sometimes there is not enough in the pack to get you to what the headline says. They false advertise. The game is all about greed for MZ now. There is no longer any skill to it. It’s just how much you can buy. They come up with an update a day, taking the fun away from the game. If you’re off three days, expect to be tapping buttons all day to catch up, rather than fighting. I started playing nearly four years ago and it’s a joke now. The only reason I stick around is because of other players. The game itself is a joke and ain’t worth your time or money.
Only caters to big spenders
by OMNISUPREME! on 2017/08/07 10:23
Literally! I have messaged MZ many times asking why I get such terrible offerings in the packs. My friends are on totally different levels spending just $100USD. I spent $15 and now I have the same things offered for over a year. I got to a point where the $20 pack would not advance me but two more researches, the VIP points and hero xp wouldn't budge me even one level up...... MZ chose to stop accepting my money. The special chest they send me a message about on a daily basis is the "Jumping June rewards chest".... it's August! Oh well. At least they get away with mismanaging their business and getting massive profits at the same time. I am and have been done for a while. I just log in to say hi to friends.
Scam artists
by HeIIRyder on 2017/08/31 03:02
I've played the game for years and it was a lot of fun in the beginning. You used to have to have skill to win like stayalive had when he was playing but now all you need to have is deep pockets to buy packs with. Back when it was based on skill you had to craft cores in order to attack with and that made a difference between who won and who didn't. Now all you have to do is buy buy buy and you can have regular attack gear just like everyone else. No skill at all needed. Only thing you need is at least $500 a week just to keep up. And I may be lowballing that. If your reading this and thinking of playing this game DONT. It's a waste of money and a lot of it. !!!NOT FREE TO PLAY!!!
Sad
by CaptainJerry on 2017/10/05 22:05
I have been playing for about 2 and a half years now. It started off as fun and if you were in a good alliance, you could really grow without spending a lot of money. Now, in order to get halfway to the top, you will need to spend THOUSANDS...I'm not kidding. Over the course of the time I have played, I had probably spent a total of $900 and I am at the bottom of the ranking list as far as most powerful players is concerned. It's not uncommon for people to spend $10,000+ on this game and be wiped out. It's like going to a casino, but impossible to win. This game is about who has the most money to spend...and bragging rights. Who wants to spend $10,000 on little dots on a computer screen??
Warning Very Expensive to Play
by Avery92 on 2017/10/14 16:35
This game may start out as a free to play but you will find out fairly quick that once they get you hooked it can be very expensive unless you want to be an unwilling farm for a big city. If your willing to buy numerous $99 packs somewhere around $1000 or more at least to be able to somewhat protect yourself enough from the +1billion plus players then this is the game for you. In many cases l, a change or 2 to the game to drive more revenue for Mz will completely nerf your city and your substantial investment. I personally found that MZ is completely driven by driving more and more revenue as most of the best skills and equipment costs numerous packs to acquire. Be warned!
Mz steals your money
by nursepeppy on 2017/10/30 20:32
MZ does not care about actual customer service! All they care about is the money and not the customer or app issues. They used to have releases weekly which was financially stable, but now they have new releases once or twice in a day which is about $100 each update. And if the app kicks you in the middle of purchasing release packs..you still pay them money and don’t receive the packs. And they then still refuse to help. Alberto was the worst at assisting! Still has not returned my further response to my emails showing proof that I did send them money. Has totally stopped correspondence even when requested to talk to his supervisor on a phone call.
Dont recommend
by disappointed in Epic War on 2017/10/23 19:05
I started playing approximately 4 yrs ago when I first started the game was fun and worked well, now there are so many issue that mz is aware of and responds with their typical form letter of “force close the app, blah blah blah”. When the biggest player in the game is zeroed multiple times I think there is an issue, you are forced to spend or leave the game no in between unfortunately. We as an alliance kinda started to keep track we all get booted at the same time and it is multiple times in an hr, this game is pretty much unplayable anymore. It is sad I have made so many friends had some awesome laughs and great times. Farewell GOW its been real.
Don't download
by Yomomanemz on 2017/08/09 00:53
I played this game for almost 2 years. Yes, all the bad reviews are true. MZ is a cash hungry monster that doesn't care enough to beef up servers for KvK events, but only to deepen their pockets. I've seen big big big players in my kingdom quit the game because it was destroying their credit due to the massive influx of updates on gear to stay alive and resources to train and research to stay a reliable player. When I started playing the gear updates were nowhere near as frequent as they are today. I left due to the greed of MZ and the lack of tech support they offered for their waste of time. I will say this one last time....DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME UNLESS YOU MAKE 6 FIGURES A YEAR!!!!!! You've been warned.
So Sad
by Dncrone on 2017/09/10 06:05
I feel your pain. I started from the beginning and enjoyed maintaining several accounts, but in the last few months, I noticed the shift in playing. I have money to burn, but the game play is out of control, literally! I've been kicked out during attacks, glitches abound to the point where I don't even get into the KVK events because of lag, or kicked out of the game. It used to be fun, but really, 35 years of speed ups to build a building? I remember when 365 days to get to SH21 was the norm. No, I'm walking away. Got better things to spend money on. I'll need to find something to enjoy my evenings with. Thanks for the memories MZ, but of course, you don't care anyway.
Addictive, expensive if you have no self control, immensely enjoyable
by Candy9361212 on 2017/08/14 13:42
I absolutely LUV this..... Lifestyle. If you can manage your spending, you can have an incredible time here !!!! I am having a problem with my account, but the support team does seem to care, and even though my issues have not been resolved after 1 week, MZ has been in contact with me. I have removed 1 star until my issues have been addressed, after which I am sure that I can add that 5th star back on !!
