I am stopped in game
by m123543 on 2020/10/17 13:40
Because sapphires have stopped coming in even after me completing the tasks that get sapphires for past 2 days been playing game for weeks. A developer did respond as I noticed they fixed the sapphires glitch, thanks
Love the game
by Fusilier h on 2020/10/14 20:54
Love the game but when are you going to put the other games where you can get them on your tablet as I miss playing soldiers inc and sparta game as I no longer have a pc or laptop
Can’t login

So basically my phone broke and I got a new one. I went to sign in through Facebook but since I have two Facebook accounts I accidentally hit the wrong account. Now it won’t let me switch my Facebook or login into my other account please tell me how to fix this.

Thought was exciting and different then other mmo war games & The troop training and a different troops and how they work that is different little bit convoluted but there are things that I look for now in war games over the past year I’ve probably played over 60,most don’t make it past week! I just like doing reviews and I got certain rules now that if they are broken within the first week? I’m done with the game! Now game is a snoozer big time! But I can get past that in a way, I mean there is lots to do but that may be the problem but one of the rules I have is that if within the first week I’m running out of resources already whether I’m farming or not, that tells me something and this game is a pure cash grab! Do not let anyone for or let the developers tell you otherwise, and funny thing is, I’m a spender.. I don’t mind spending but this game you can already tell that you would have to spend a small fortune to be relevant! Also the major currency that really is everything in the game sapphires kind of ridiculous to come by! And a little bit that you do when here and there amounts to nothing really and they have a lot of things in place to really advance, you pretty much have to spend some.. now the server I’m on there’s not a lot of action there might be a nap I don’t know if that’s the case and you can find a server with an nap? then you can probably grow, you’ll have to grind a lot and it is easy to move up to level 40 really quick actually... but level 40 sounds big but it’s not there’s this whole separate thing I think you get to once you hit like level 100, it goes to another 50 levels or so.. this game has been out for what five years.. I don’t know, I’m not saying don’t play the game just for me it’s too boring and I already have a couple other games that I spend on and I could tell this game would be a lot of micro transactions especially when it comes to needing sapphires! So it’s a soft pass for me.. Jrock review...
Incorrect statements by developers
by Jarhead975 on 2020/03/07 13:04
I have written a couple of times about my infant ray training issue, having the building at a level to get 3 full days of training on my main. However, I can only trian infantry for up to 2 days and 9 hours, not the full 3 days. Developers never responded or attempted to fix the issue. Also certain items are not rewarded in quest but can ONLY be purchased, making this more about money then entertainment
Still needs a network fix though

It is an interesting game so far

Show them the money!!!!
by Kevinlkaiser on 2019/12/10 23:13
So when almost all of the in game purchases cost $100 USD then you can see the rater below was calling the developer out correctly. This game use to be fun but unless you are an oil Barron then I don’t see how one could afford to play. To respond that you don’t need money is incorrect. You need to buy sketches to progress past a certain point and those cost cash money to make any reasonable/ marginal progress in the game.
The Developers of this game are scammers
by sirbalain on 2019/12/06 14:16
I have spent at least 15000 with this company don’t be fooled like I was. All these they will do is steal and cheat you!!! From hitting your credit card for things you did not order to updates that take away what you have already bought or earned to steal more dollars from you!!! New players beware!!!!!
Still my favorite game
by Richk097 on 2019/12/06 11:14
Contrary to other posts, I have found that you don’t need to spend any money to be competitive here. This is still the only game I play everyday.
Really great

I think this was great I think that there needs to be a faster training time on troops though that’s the only bad thing

Broken
by Tablet Gamer Dood on 2019/09/15 14:33
Updating to two stars. Game works now after major release which is a welcome improvement but still many gameplay issues exist. League chat, champion training, hero equipment modals all cause boot to home screen. Seems like instantiation issue affecting all mini games. Game is also showing stack trace error upon app refresh which is a ux no no. Again... I like the story, the strategy, and the community, but the foundation that brings all those things together, the engineering, needs more work. Will continue to update as things get better... or worse. One point worth making, the support team is very nice, I just wish they did not need to do as much support for their sake and mine!
Turned to crap
by kcwats on 2019/09/10 18:24
They keep releasing updates that have really made effort feel less impactful. And the last update broke the app. It won’t even load. Find something else
2 many upgrades 4 revenue, server connection gets worse
by Kool C. on 2019/09/09 17:35
Over the years, I played Stormfall, Rise of Balur with few accounts. Plarium has updates quite often with too many bugs. Average once a month. Some updates cause more problems than before, and every major updates add new revenue schemes. Worst part of Stormfall is bad connections and request to relogin. Stormfall requires latest hardware with high powered CPU, much memory, and high bandwidth connection. My new iPad 128mb wasn’t good enough for last update. I had to relogin after almost every click. Frustration is an understatement. This is after a new owner and multiple major upgrades. Developer wants detailed failure data but it doesn’t change much afterwards. Even top tier coiners who spend hundreds of dollars per month (thousands in some months)doesn’t always get best customer service either. Another unfair thing about Stormfall is there are lots of Russian federation players who can buy game currency at less than 1/10th of EU or US players. They can buy more troops for cheaps and kill your league easier. Why do I still play? Many good players left but few players I have developed relationships with are good. Otherwise I would have quit too. When my game mates are gone then I’ll be gone too.
LOVED THE GAME AS IT WAS 3-5 YRS AGO
by MoonBaby22 on 2019/09/09 16:26
This game has become exclusively about who is willing to pour money into the game versus the game used to be about work and reward as well as team comradery. The Tower feature is an unnecessary addition and really is not enjoyed by those who play the game. Once again it rolls back to money-anyone who buys their way in/out and around advancement glitches within the game is a happy camper. They are always the strongest and capable of rushing 70-80% of their fellow players. The face that they receive VIP status for both playing/spending just reinforces that the game developers are more worried about financial gain than member retention. I really wish everything in this game -as far as ranking /needs/ and building strength did not revolve around paying for 3/4 of it. At this point over 1/2 of 20 leagues I played with have already abandoned their castles and quit playing all together. For the average person looking for a way to relax and enjoy a game -I wouldn’t recommend SF, but if you are above average economically with a competitive trait and have money to burn-then I would recommend this game. The spenders seem to love it!
Dependable developers
by WintersWhisper on 2019/09/09 15:18
This game is not a waste of time. Yes the game has been almost unplayable lately but the developers have responded. It takes time to get everything just right. Especially in a game like this one that keeps growing and changing. Patience is the key. We want everything right now! Lol It may seem like nothings being done but the devs always come through. At least they have in the few years I’ve been playing. I love this game.
Great way to break up the day...but
by bdmccarthy on 2019/09/07 18:47
I haven’t had a solid connection in weeks. Spent over $70 last week for units and sapphires and couldn’t stay connected long enough (or even at all, like this afternoon) to use them effectively. Cannot contact game support because - oh that’s right - I cannot get into the game. Nice enough game but I’m not spending anymore money, and I don’t recommend anyone else spend money either.
Plarium is a joke
by Jfred36 on 2019/09/07 18:22
This game used to be the best... but now every update/bug fix/lag fix breaks something new. Can’t stay logged in, or do anything in game for weeks now. Constant connection errors/ re-login error messages/ server updates that they just tell you is your internet connection problem not theirs. I highly doubt when everyone in the game has the same problem it’s all their internet connections. Own your issues and fix your game problems Plarium. You make plenty of money from players. There should not be these kinds of problems. Don’t waste your time or money. They won’t get another dime from me.
Constantly broken
by L9fingers on 2019/09/07 17:36
I really enjoy this game and I’m cool with the constant evolution and need for new strategies. Lately the developers are really pushing more of a league level involvement with league brawls and champ tower events. With that said... this game is constantly breaking. Server updates and app updates are almost a daily occurrence and every update breaks the game. If this doesn’t improve I will leave the game. Many players have already moved on. It’s a shame.
Unplayable With Glitches and Crashes
by WhiteWolf2883 on 2019/09/04 12:20
Game has been glitches to the point it is unplayable for over a month. Will crash 10 times in a 15 min period. Programmers don’t seem capable of repairing it. All started when they introduced the latest pay to play feature called the battle pass. Many players have left the game because of the issue in the last 30 days. They just gave up that it would ever be fixed or found other games. It’s really hard to imagine a reputable gaming company that would allow this to go on for so long. They will de-emphasize the issue in the reply to this and say that we need to contact them with specific details and they will fix, but we have all been doing that for a month. They like to act dumb and try to put the burden of repairing the game on the players. They know the game is unplayable and have asked us to “please keep playing” in various in-game messages. I am sorry, Pkarium, I like many before me, can no longer do that.

It’s not really free
by Trekblue98 on 2019/08/25 01:21
This is the most expensive game I have ever seen or played. You keep hearing you can play for free but it’s simply not true. In order to win prizes you need to be on the top teams, which rarely take non spenders. In fact, the odds of the in game winnings are not accurate at all, in favor of the house most of the time. If you don’t spend and upgrade you can not increase levels that quickly. There are beacons in the game that were great for a long time, then they were over produced and tournaments allowed the destruction of them and they have never come back. But you can spends 1000s to temporarily recover them. I still can’t express the cost. They have these things called champions (level 5) and you MUST buy them if you want them. It’s costs $100 to attempt to get one and the odds are extremely low In order to get them all it costs between $5000 to $10000, unless they give you lots of doubles which they do. The company has destroyed the game, and the cost is unbearable, I’ll never complain about buying apple products again. If you are not willing to pay 50 to 100$ a week go find something else to play. I just passed my 5 year anniversary in the game and they gave me about 5$ in troops, that’s their generosity. I do play it and do like it but the fun is wearing out, every month there are more and more items to buy and nothing is reasonable it’s crazy expensive.
Downhill quick.
by kashikhan on 2019/08/24 00:20
This game used to be great. Now it is plagued with pay to win features that make moderate coiners and non coiners irrelevant and horrible updates that glitch out the whole game and make it unplayable for everyone. If you like being kicked from game constantly on any platform or not being able to log in for days and even weeks at a time, this is the game for you.
So many years, so many hourglasses
by Lhlb on 2019/08/23 22:17
I have been playing this game for a really long time, and it is a good time waster. But they seriously have to fix their server side issues, the game freezes at least once every ten minutes and loses connection to the server. Checking the forums, this is a wide spread issue affecting many people across multiple devices and locations. I used to even pay into this game every once and a while, but not since the lag issues started. Unless the hourglasses go away, I might be done soon.
Pay-to-Win: All they care about is $$$
by *Sieglinde* on 2019/08/14 02:53
Do not download this game unless you’re prepared to spend A LOT of money. The only limit on one’s power is the amount of money one is willing to spend — the top players spent $1k/month or more. In exchange for thousands of dollars, Plarium gives “VIP” players a personal customer service representative, thousands of bonus sapphires, and items that make them so powerful that one of these “money players” can easily destroy an ENTIRE LEAGUE of players who spend $30/month or so. This power imbalance has ruined the game. It used to be fun to upgrade beacons and forts, but nobody does that now — the $1K/month crowd will downgrade it as soon as they see it. Plarium has made it clear that they do not care about the non-VIP crowd. They ignore players’ in-game error reports. They are condescending and dismissive in the Plarium forums if someone suggests all is not well. Their Facebook group moderators are as helpful as possible, but they lack power to fix stuff. Plarium’s greed is killing this game, which makes those of us who loved the game very sad. :-( Note to developers: Unless you intend to address the power imbalance, there’s no need to respond to this review.
You can’t use your free boosts.
by Disappointed 100000 on 2019/07/31 01:23
If you attack someone you can no longer get your troops back. I have hundreds of boosts that I could use but palarIiym now requires you to pay for what you already had for free.

Letters and report problem
by Hawaii Jang on 2019/04/26 08:48
When I touch the letter and report, it keep stopping the game. No can do nothing. It has been a problem 1 week. I reported it to the g.m and never receive an answer. I'm getting regret to play. If it does not fix it, that's fine I will stop playing for saving money.
Need original designers back
by f u c k t a r d on 2019/04/23 03:26
I’ve played Stormfall since 2015 or longer and in the last year to year and half I find myself playing less and less!! These updates are horrible I couldn’t imagine be a newbie and try to figure this game out!! If I didn’t have 25 very close friends that play this game it would have been already deleted but each update I’m getting closer to saying F*** it and deleting!! This game is now centered around spending money and not everyone wants to do that and it’s sad they’ve turned an amazing game into the worse!! I wish red knight was still around he’d set someone straight!! I’m going to try to contact King of COA and see if he can help!!
Pay to Win
by godman_89 on 2019/04/23 01:54
I don’t mind if games cost a little up front nor do I mind paying for an occasional ad on. What I don’t like is when you literally have to pay to be the best. You can build a reasonable size army and really dedicate yourself to the game day in and day out. However, once you attack one person who has paid his life savings into the game, you are literally done. You will not win and your army is toast. I’m not exaggerating. When you play, your screen is bombarded with packs you can purchase to build your army faster. I don’t have anything against companies wanting to make money, but holy cow this is murder! Don’t bother trying to hold a fortress because those who spend an ungodly amount of money (and there are many players who do) can take it out in one hit which is stupid insane. If I could rate this game lower, I would. However I can’t deter people from playing. I can only warn you to what you should expect. Either spend or don’t have fun playing.
Cheated, Lies and theft
by Rommer1 on 2019/04/17 11:49
This is my first game review, but I feel I need to warn people. I will start I have been playing this game for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed it. Recently I bought a $99 pack and it was missing items that were in the advertisement. I contacted support and they were useless? Do you have screenshots they said? Well no, no screenshots, NO help. I buy on impulse. Why take screenshots. Well now I learned. So I went back and looked at all the in game purchases for the last year for Stormfall and I feel like been cheated and stolen from. Be very careful when buying from them. Take many screenshots. Best of luck dealing with support!

by NikeWolf777 on 2019/03/09 15:25
Nothing but servers with people who been playing for years and have 50 accounts and it’s so obvious this game is only here to steal your money and empower Russia. These battle reports favor the Russian worse than any game I have played. You can attack level 30 bases and lose more power of their Russian but not of their Russian bigs attack you. Plarium scam artist Jew company
Reliability
by dalton314159 on 2019/02/21 01:21

Going downhill fast
by DonDayla on 2019/02/05 18:23
This game is getting harder to play with every “update”. You can’t do anything without the game freezing. Stop issuing updates that do nothing but make the game harder to play. Champs freeze, daily quests freeze, raiding freeze, stone heart trails freeze. Please fix all the bugs before you have no players left.
Destroyed the game!
by Franklinish on 2018/12/19 23:30
I have been playing this game for about two years and have loved it but am now considering quitting. The developers have gotten greedy they have destroyed the integrity of the game. Many of us have spent considerable time and $ obtaining upgrades and building our league strength, as encouraged by Palarium, all to be now worthless because of their constant upgrades and changes. The input of players is not really listened to except for the ones that spend considerable money. If you are looking for a good war strategy game that remains constant and reliable....not so sure this is the one.
Used to be good
by cberline on 2018/12/08 13:58
After the last update the gameplay has gone down rapidly. We have nothing to look forward to do. This game has just got boring. We use to be able to build toward something. Now forts are gone. Beacons are gone. You have gone from active players to inactive in weeks. You can’t even fix the correct screen sizes, and blinking chat. Millions of dollars for developers to fix easy things. All Stormfall wants and cares about now is $$$.
Latest update endless loop
by Kooskoos on 2018/12/05 15:30
After the latest update, the game thinks it’s not updated, so it sends me again to the App Store to update. This is very frustrating as I HAVE spent money on this game. Please fix this ! It seems I have issues of some sort after each update there is. And it seems more than just me are having this issue. (Tick tock, Christmas is around the corner and iTunes gift cards are always traded, people use these on other games if this one isn’t working) PLEASE FIX
New upgrades
by curs1 on 2018/11/08 13:04
Very poor decision on palrium part playing field is even more uneven. And favors the coiners or huge leagues. Small leagues can’t compete . To even upgrade with the beacon mess that was created awhile ago .
New update / Fortresses
by Bigoscar1968 on 2018/11/08 12:53
In the new update it is now possible to wipe out years of hard work and sweat with a couple of attacks. This is not fair to common and core players. I have spent plenty of money through the years on things in the game but with this update it renders all I have spent to nothing more than if I had not spent a dime. I am not impressed that it has all of the sudden become a money player only game. I love the PC version as well but stopped it a couple of years ago due to the same issues. I hate that it no longer is challenging for the common player. Please do something about it before you lose many good and daily players.
Upgrades
by RyanHane on 2018/11/08 05:56
I’ve been a player for a couple years. In that time I’ve seen many upgrades. It seems to me that this latest one just screws us all out of hard work in last couple years, not to mention the cost of new upgrade.... bad Stormfall
Money grab
by The Drizzt FVW on 2018/11/08 03:02
I am a five year player. The developers add updates that require hundreds of dollars to complete to remain competitive in the game. The latest update destroyed more than a years worth of time and money invested into this game.

Good BUT going downhill rapidly
by Leader12345 on 2018/11/07 01:17
I have previously reviewed about upgrade issues breaking the game by being mandatory but not being available to download. Now they’re simply breaking the game. I have played Stormfall for quite some time. I’m one of those players who developers don’t like - I take the free to play to heart. So I know I need to be patient, make wise decisions and play as team. This suits my playing style and I am very active in a competitive empire. However the developers have decided to radically change the game once again, this time damaging a core concept that of league fortresses. With the latest update even the mightiest fortress can be shredded to nothing in a matter of a few attacks. This isn’t a might happen but already HAS happened and we are less than 2 days after update. Complaints have been made in the game forums but appear to be ignored. If this continues there will be no reason to continue as it is no longer as advertised as a MMO strategy game.
Carrot on a Stick
by Stormfall Bait and Switch on 2018/11/06 12:46
With this newest update, Stormfall finds new ways to get you to spend money. The ratio of in-game rewards and materials needed to upgrade is disproportionate. Do not play.
Great game

Best I can give them...
by RiickyRicardo on 2018/09/08 14:42
Plarium make a decent game with good graphics, which is why I gave them 2 stars. BUT - the only new development they do is to add more “pay for” features. Bugs and requested enhancements are totally ignored. Customer Support is virtually non-existent unless you are a big spender. The big spenders are given extra perks to make them unbeatable, causing the games to be dominated by those that want to spend a lot of money on a game. It’s not fun anymore. By the, it should be noted that none of he graphics shown here are part of the game - they are for marketing only.
Losses

I used to love this game. It was easy to understand. Today there was a new update. A Hunt, which allowed the player to send champions out automatically. Great idea. NOT REALLY. It allows the game to use up your gems and automatic refills unless you click a box. So each time, the game sends your champs out it actually uses up both the gems and your automatic refills. Why would you need the box? Only to scam players like me or others. I now hate this game. Each update makes it harder to progress and to keep advancing. Losing is not fun when you are gaming. Only winning counts. And this game sets you up for failure.
Define Your Own Game
by Niedermeyer on 2018/08/12 12:00
I played this game for years, and spent almost no money except the occasional Christmas or birthday treat. I almost completely finished my castle, met a ton of great league members and “enemies,” and enjoyed the frequent updates. If you want to spend a bunch of money, help yourself, but it isn’t necessary for a rewarding experience. Have fun!
Changes....
by Wyvern's Shadow on 2018/08/10 12:22
I don’t like the changes. Especially when it comes to selecting troops. If you accidentally select a troop you don’t want, they stay in your selection.... I don't like that. The old format was far better. Also, the tower thing is basically useless, as units become “locked” up and can’t be reused. Unless you coin, it’s extremely hard to get scrolls to summon anyone new. So your selection stays way too small. There needs to be an easier way to earn scrolls and the stones to advance. Not everyone that plays has money to burn. I’ve been playing for almost 3 years and am getting discouraged because the game wants my to buy things I need. I don’t have that kind of money. Can ya’ll work on that instead of adding more things that you want me to buy??
Update.
by Vehsia on 2018/08/07 22:05
So not impressed with the latest update. Looking for new game to play. Why is it nobody listens to the little players that don’t have any monies. I understand spending money in game. That’s not the issue. Everybody’s opinions need to be listened too.
A decent game, a few suggestions
by dagg3r09 on 2018/08/06 13:36
To start, I am a very experienced player in this game and would recommend that as many people who are looking to play the game read this as possible. This game is tough. It’s challenging to learn and can lead to failure easily. Perseverance and patience are required to overcome your enemies. Battles fought in a few minutes can set you back for months, where you rebuild using battlegrounds and tournaments. The community of people in this game are some of the best I’ve seen across any gaming platform, many humble and kind; willing to help you learn(there are a few meanies out there but they’re fun to mess with, even if they’re stronger than you ;) ). I would give this game 5 stars, and above is my review to incoming players, but below is a note to the developer. Hello, in one of the recent updates, the Stoneheart trials were added to keep the larger players of the game interested. This concept was genius in a sense, and a little overlooked in another. By boosting the power of players that have spent years on the game, players fighting to rise in power are under a huge setback. A defense of griffons, demons, archers/lost ones, golems and heroes can easily be overpowered by a few Stoneheart trial units. My recommendation to get your money flow from the rising players back (as opposed to relying on the few with enough things unlocked) is to either balance the Stoneheart trial units a little more, or to add a few troops to the regular arsenal that can block/ damper the effects of these massive Stoneheart units. Thank you for your time!
Okay
by E2rone on 2018/08/06 13:20
Solid game. I would recommend buying some more builders as it speeds up the game considerably.
Awesome Game
by BH_21 on 2018/08/01 11:55
One of the best free to plays I have ever played. Why you ask? Simple, this is one of few games where all in game currency can be earned without spending money irl. If you don’t understand the importance of that; then you probably don’t have a full grasp of game design. Kudos Plarium!
Money sink , totally pay to win
by -Maric- on 2018/07/11 05:59
If you can afford to sink $50+ bucks a month to compete in the game you might enjoy this. But if you can’t, you are not going to have a very pleasant time in this game.

Glitch in Shrine of Summoning
by LebruuuuuunJames on 2018/06/08 19:49
Although this game is great and fun to play, this game has a major glitch in the shrine of summoning because I'll send one of my champions out and then they won't get sent out but the game will still end up taking my energy points away even though no champion was used 😡 also the xp points don't accumulate accurately when there is a tournament for champions xp
This is some bullshyt game cheaters & liars !!!!
by Look for a better game on 2018/06/06 13:17
Ppl don’t download this game I would give zero stars Shyty game with mainly all Russian ppl If you find anything wrong instead of solving the problems you will get Block >>APPLE-should remove this game ASAP Thy r cheating left & right Get your self a better game
Waste of time
by DiegoD. on 2018/05/26 04:55
In the beginning, you’ll spend a lot of time trying to build an army and level up but it’s pointless. You’ll end up getting attacked by super high level players over and over again. You’ll destroy your army trying to fight back and you’ll start from square one all over again. The option to buy troops and sapphires becomes the only REAL way to progress in this ruthless PvP game. Do yourself a favor, find a new game, and cut your losses.
Very deep gameplay, fun community, great app!
by thacrazynative on 2018/04/24 09:46
I have played for about a year or two now and its a very fun cellphone or tablet based strategy with PVP elements and lots of rewarding gameplay. Best advice find a good guild right away and don’t waste your resources on frivolous things and be careful how you send your offensive units. Great game!
Ridiculous losses in battle
by FUKITUNES!!! on 2018/04/08 16:27
Troop losses are so out of wack the game is mostly luck and patience, very little strategy. Good community though, but I cannot recommend.
MOST AMAZING GAME OF ALL TIME!!!
by Dromadus on 2018/03/20 01:30
This game is so amazing. This is the game I’ve been playing for the last few years! It does require lots of time and effort or else you will be destroyed! So build up your castle and defense. Took me 2 years to get to level 50 and I would play it like 15 minutes a day!
Upset.
by Blueyedangel60 on 2018/03/05 21:46
I just updated the game and can’t log in. I tried to get help but apparently they are not helping anyone right now. I can’t get through there either :-(,,,

Horrible Game
by Bad game II on 2018/02/13 23:44
I played the game over two years, as time went by the game became a money eating machine, bad updates, horrible new features. If you want to play be ready to spend money if you want to have an opportunity against other players.

Pay to play slowest game ever
by Skip over this one on 2017/12/11 14:15
This game is all about pay to play. All new features are geared toward making money. To get anywhere you have to take risks which are capitalized on by rich high level a-holes who constantly pick on and farm anyone they can, why?.. because the game actually encourages them to pick on new active players over farming the multitude of smarter players who quit the game long ago.
Quick response to problem - fun game
by ThubanOne on 2017/11/28 12:46
This is for the developer: fix this! App just forced me to download the upgrade and could not then log in. OK, fast response (fixed by next day). Overall , very good game (playing for over two years)
Super Game
by Hargate on 2017/11/22 23:05
Lot's of fun to play. Good community of gamers. A little pricey unless you want to advance really slowly. Last upgrade on 11/22 was bad. Sent out one Raid, should have received 50k rss, got 0. Don’t know what Plarium does for QA, but it sure could be better!
Can’t download the new version anyone having issues as well iPhone carrier

Opportunity...
by JennaH82 on 2017/11/22 20:31
It is true that this is a free game and if you’re patient you don’t have to pay the in-app fees to improve your status. These game developers do not earn money by giving their games away without an option to fast track your castle with real money. I am only giving 3 stars because I think they’re overcharging to fast track. It’s a fun game though and I’m not overly competitive. You get more than what you pay for in this game (which is $0 to play) and they always make improvements!
How is game play.
by STRANGER_909 on 2017/11/17 08:48
free to play is a bunch of bull. You have to spend to have fun or keep getting smashed. I have no problem spending, I played game of war for 4 1/2 years but developers got greedy and were coming out with multiple updates every week. You literally had to spend 100’s every month. I finally quit. I’ll spend to keep up with updates and have fun, but how often are they coming out with new things where you ha e to spend?
Very fun
by Bdbeiwkanzbhs on 2017/11/12 16:20
The people who say you need Mony to play it are wrong it helps a lot but I still get bye without it and it's very fun
Game is now stealing from “investors”!

Customer Service

Horrible. They have a generic response for most things.
If I could give this game ZERO stars, I would donkey kong punch that zero.
by Bbytgfred on 2017/11/07 13:28
Don't be fooled by the frequently and loosely used term of "FREE" which is so eloquently strewn about on Stormfall's information page. You will realize relatively soon in the game that you need money to make something of yourself otherwise you're just gonna end up as one of the million farms in the Stormfall graveyard. You will get sucked in, but what keeps you in are the people you meet and play with/against. Plarium has shown and continues to show that it has no ceiling for creating new features (cha-ching cha-ching) to the game to strengthen your army/castle etc. Its a vicious circle of dumping money into the game and to be quite frank, their actions seem to be geared more towards making profits rather than caring about their loyal players. Don't play Stormfall. Buy a time machine, go back in time, buy Stock in Stormfall and sell those shares while Plarium is rolling in dough.
Don't do it!
by Ubiquitus on 2017/11/07 12:46
As a previous reviewer stated, Plarium did a total bait and switch to the players of this game. Baiting them into spending money to build up an aspect of the game, then later, making that aspect useless. Despite pages and pages of complaints on the forums, they refused to reverse their switch and would not even compromise. They only offered vague and nonsensical excuses for their actions and stated that the do not plan to change it. They are dishonest and don't care about the experience of the players. People play these games to be entertained, not robbed.
Worse developers and only care about the money
by oney hungry on 2017/11/04 13:16
I been playing this game for two years and I truly will be boycotting this company and the game developers no more will they see my money and as a game community it is important we all do the same ! Show them we aren’t going to be rob no more!
Fraud
by Sylphi on 2017/11/03 16:48
I have been playing this game for over three years. I am a monster player on server one that has spent a insane amount of money. I never had a problem spending money to get further ahead but what I have a huge problem with is the fraud that they just committed. They came out with an item then a few weeks later they sent out a message game wide increasing it x3. After people spending tens of thousands of dollars game wide. Then they reduced it by 10 folds. That is called bait and switch that is the act of fraud. The game has been dying for quite some time now and this act of fraud that they just committed is going to force people like me not to spend anymore money and the game is going to go even further downhill.
Great game

Good distraction game but terrible code release cycle
by Bigdadnc on 2017/10/12 17:55
Been playing this game over well over two years. Some strategy is required but basically you can sit back and farm or just be an all out warrior. No need to login every 10 mins to checkout your rss unless you want. No gems required but the gem specials will tempt you. Why not throw the developers a few coins? Join a league and build some friendships. Don't be surprised however when they release code and your game stops working for a few days while they figure out what happened to the iOS devices. It's a little frustrating.

Soulstone issue
by Babystego on 2017/09/26 03:00
Fun game, it's one that doesn't take much time when you're in a rush but also need a distraction. Only downside is that soulstones are HORRIBLE trying to get. I'm in an inactive zone so trying to find PvP units is impossible. Update: It’s really annoying when you’re raiding multiple castles and then your game crashes... and then it won’t fully load up before kicking you out. I’m gunna be mad if my castle gets attacked and I lose my offense from the raids or losing all that food I harvested.
DO NOT PLAY/UNFAIR/AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!
by F******* Plarium on 2017/08/26 16:04
8.26.17 Update, this game will glitch and you will lose your troops and they will not do anything to compensate you for their error. They have the worst customer service....EVER! DO NOT EVEN THINK TO DOWNLOAD THIS GAME! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! Plarium does not treat all players equally. They favor Russians. They also do not punish hackers and cheaters hard enough. Currently, if you play on apple devices you will have massive challenges including not being able to log in. This is a team strategy game, with ascending daily log in rewards. I am sure Plarium will never cover the losses of each player from their ineptness. Their customer service is worse than Comcast. All Plarium cares about is taking your money. They once made an error in their customers favor and were extremely fast to remove their mistake. They cited fair play, but it was to have their customers send them more money. They change the parameters of the game so often so that you spend more money to recover. They are money hungry whores. I believe they fund some players and teams to create wars to have their foes pay more. If you are dumb enough after reading this to play, make sure you join a top league to learn quickly. I IMPLORE YOU, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME.
Crap support
by ShadowBear8 on 2017/08/18 17:03
Last pvp tourney I tried to collect my rewards and it tells me I must choose a reward first and even when I do it want let me claim them. I tried contacting support and it wont even recognize my castle coordinates so I can submit a ticket.I will be deleting this game just like all the other platinum games I have deleted!

LOVED THE GAME AS IT WAS 3-5 YRS AGO
by MoonBaby22 on 2019/09/09 16:26
This game has become exclusively about who is willing to pour money into the game versus the game used to be about work and reward as well as team comradery. The Tower feature is an unnecessary addition and really is not enjoyed by those who play the game. Once again it rolls back to money-anyone who buys their way in/out and around advancement glitches within the game is a happy camper. They are always the strongest and capable of rushing 70-80% of their fellow players. The face that they receive VIP status for both playing/spending just reinforces that the game developers are more worried about financial gain than member retention. I really wish everything in this game -as far as ranking /needs/ and building strength did not revolve around paying for 3/4 of it. At this point over 1/2 of 20 leagues I played with have already abandoned their castles and quit playing all together. For the average person looking for a way to relax and enjoy a game -I wouldn’t recommend SF, but if you are above average economically with a competitive trait and have money to burn-then I would recommend this game. The spenders seem to love it!
Unplayable With Glitches and Crashes
by WhiteWolf2883 on 2019/09/04 12:20
Game has been glitches to the point it is unplayable for over a month. Will crash 10 times in a 15 min period. Programmers don’t seem capable of repairing it. All started when they introduced the latest pay to play feature called the battle pass. Many players have left the game because of the issue in the last 30 days. They just gave up that it would ever be fixed or found other games. It’s really hard to imagine a reputable gaming company that would allow this to go on for so long. They will de-emphasize the issue in the reply to this and say that we need to contact them with specific details and they will fix, but we have all been doing that for a month. They like to act dumb and try to put the burden of repairing the game on the players. They know the game is unplayable and have asked us to “please keep playing” in various in-game messages. I am sorry, Pkarium, I like many before me, can no longer do that.
Good BUT going downhill rapidly
by Leader12345 on 2018/11/07 01:17
I have previously reviewed about upgrade issues breaking the game by being mandatory but not being available to download. Now they’re simply breaking the game. I have played Stormfall for quite some time. I’m one of those players who developers don’t like - I take the free to play to heart. So I know I need to be patient, make wise decisions and play as team. This suits my playing style and I am very active in a competitive empire. However the developers have decided to radically change the game once again, this time damaging a core concept that of league fortresses. With the latest update even the mightiest fortress can be shredded to nothing in a matter of a few attacks. This isn’t a might happen but already HAS happened and we are less than 2 days after update. Complaints have been made in the game forums but appear to be ignored. If this continues there will be no reason to continue as it is no longer as advertised as a MMO strategy game.

2 many upgrades 4 revenue, server connection gets worse
by Kool C. on 2019/09/09 17:35
Over the years, I played Stormfall, Rise of Balur with few accounts. Plarium has updates quite often with too many bugs. Average once a month. Some updates cause more problems than before, and every major updates add new revenue schemes. Worst part of Stormfall is bad connections and request to relogin. Stormfall requires latest hardware with high powered CPU, much memory, and high bandwidth connection. My new iPad 128mb wasn’t good enough for last update. I had to relogin after almost every click. Frustration is an understatement. This is after a new owner and multiple major upgrades. Developer wants detailed failure data but it doesn’t change much afterwards. Even top tier coiners who spend hundreds of dollars per month (thousands in some months)doesn’t always get best customer service either. Another unfair thing about Stormfall is there are lots of Russian federation players who can buy game currency at less than 1/10th of EU or US players. They can buy more troops for cheaps and kill your league easier. Why do I still play? Many good players left but few players I have developed relationships with are good. Otherwise I would have quit too. When my game mates are gone then I’ll be gone too.
Pay-to-Win: All they care about is $$$
by *Sieglinde* on 2019/08/14 02:53
Do not download this game unless you’re prepared to spend A LOT of money. The only limit on one’s power is the amount of money one is willing to spend — the top players spent $1k/month or more. In exchange for thousands of dollars, Plarium gives “VIP” players a personal customer service representative, thousands of bonus sapphires, and items that make them so powerful that one of these “money players” can easily destroy an ENTIRE LEAGUE of players who spend $30/month or so. This power imbalance has ruined the game. It used to be fun to upgrade beacons and forts, but nobody does that now — the $1K/month crowd will downgrade it as soon as they see it. Plarium has made it clear that they do not care about the non-VIP crowd. They ignore players’ in-game error reports. They are condescending and dismissive in the Plarium forums if someone suggests all is not well. Their Facebook group moderators are as helpful as possible, but they lack power to fix stuff. Plarium’s greed is killing this game, which makes those of us who loved the game very sad. :-( Note to developers: Unless you intend to address the power imbalance, there’s no need to respond to this review.
Broken
by Tablet Gamer Dood on 2019/09/15 14:33
Updating to two stars. Game works now after major release which is a welcome improvement but still many gameplay issues exist. League chat, champion training, hero equipment modals all cause boot to home screen. Seems like instantiation issue affecting all mini games. Game is also showing stack trace error upon app refresh which is a ux no no. Again... I like the story, the strategy, and the community, but the foundation that brings all those things together, the engineering, needs more work. Will continue to update as things get better... or worse. One point worth making, the support team is very nice, I just wish they did not need to do as much support for their sake and mine!

So many years, so many hourglasses
by Lhlb on 2019/08/23 22:17
I have been playing this game for a really long time, and it is a good time waster. But they seriously have to fix their server side issues, the game freezes at least once every ten minutes and loses connection to the server. Checking the forums, this is a wide spread issue affecting many people across multiple devices and locations. I used to even pay into this game every once and a while, but not since the lag issues started. Unless the hourglasses go away, I might be done soon.
Dependable developers
by WintersWhisper on 2019/09/09 15:18
This game is not a waste of time. Yes the game has been almost unplayable lately but the developers have responded. It takes time to get everything just right. Especially in a game like this one that keeps growing and changing. Patience is the key. We want everything right now! Lol It may seem like nothings being done but the devs always come through. At least they have in the few years I’ve been playing. I love this game.
New update / Fortresses
by Bigoscar1968 on 2018/11/08 12:53
In the new update it is now possible to wipe out years of hard work and sweat with a couple of attacks. This is not fair to common and core players. I have spent plenty of money through the years on things in the game but with this update it renders all I have spent to nothing more than if I had not spent a dime. I am not impressed that it has all of the sudden become a money player only game. I love the PC version as well but stopped it a couple of years ago due to the same issues. I hate that it no longer is challenging for the common player. Please do something about it before you lose many good and daily players.
Pay to Win
by godman_89 on 2019/04/23 01:54
I don’t mind if games cost a little up front nor do I mind paying for an occasional ad on. What I don’t like is when you literally have to pay to be the best. You can build a reasonable size army and really dedicate yourself to the game day in and day out. However, once you attack one person who has paid his life savings into the game, you are literally done. You will not win and your army is toast. I’m not exaggerating. When you play, your screen is bombarded with packs you can purchase to build your army faster. I don’t have anything against companies wanting to make money, but holy cow this is murder! Don’t bother trying to hold a fortress because those who spend an ungodly amount of money (and there are many players who do) can take it out in one hit which is stupid insane. If I could rate this game lower, I would. However I can’t deter people from playing. I can only warn you to what you should expect. Either spend or don’t have fun playing.
Plarium is a joke
by Jfred36 on 2019/09/07 18:22
This game used to be the best... but now every update/bug fix/lag fix breaks something new. Can’t stay logged in, or do anything in game for weeks now. Constant connection errors/ re-login error messages/ server updates that they just tell you is your internet connection problem not theirs. I highly doubt when everyone in the game has the same problem it’s all their internet connections. Own your issues and fix your game problems Plarium. You make plenty of money from players. There should not be these kinds of problems. Don’t waste your time or money. They won’t get another dime from me.
Destroyed the game!
by Franklinish on 2018/12/19 23:30
I have been playing this game for about two years and have loved it but am now considering quitting. The developers have gotten greedy they have destroyed the integrity of the game. Many of us have spent considerable time and $ obtaining upgrades and building our league strength, as encouraged by Palarium, all to be now worthless because of their constant upgrades and changes. The input of players is not really listened to except for the ones that spend considerable money. If you are looking for a good war strategy game that remains constant and reliable....not so sure this is the one.
Awesome Game
by BH_21 on 2018/08/01 11:55
One of the best free to plays I have ever played. Why you ask? Simple, this is one of few games where all in game currency can be earned without spending money irl. If you don’t understand the importance of that; then you probably don’t have a full grasp of game design. Kudos Plarium!
Cheated, Lies and theft
by Rommer1 on 2019/04/17 11:49
This is my first game review, but I feel I need to warn people. I will start I have been playing this game for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed it. Recently I bought a $99 pack and it was missing items that were in the advertisement. I contacted support and they were useless? Do you have screenshots they said? Well no, no screenshots, NO help. I buy on impulse. Why take screenshots. Well now I learned. So I went back and looked at all the in game purchases for the last year for Stormfall and I feel like been cheated and stolen from. Be very careful when buying from them. Take many screenshots. Best of luck dealing with support!
Opportunity...
by JennaH82 on 2017/11/22 20:31
It is true that this is a free game and if you’re patient you don’t have to pay the in-app fees to improve your status. These game developers do not earn money by giving their games away without an option to fast track your castle with real money. I am only giving 3 stars because I think they’re overcharging to fast track. It’s a fun game though and I’m not overly competitive. You get more than what you pay for in this game (which is $0 to play) and they always make improvements!
Best I can give them...
by RiickyRicardo on 2018/09/08 14:42
Plarium make a decent game with good graphics, which is why I gave them 2 stars. BUT - the only new development they do is to add more “pay for” features. Bugs and requested enhancements are totally ignored. Customer Support is virtually non-existent unless you are a big spender. The big spenders are given extra perks to make them unbeatable, causing the games to be dominated by those that want to spend a lot of money on a game. It’s not fun anymore. By the, it should be noted that none of he graphics shown here are part of the game - they are for marketing only.
Losses
by Playerinfinity on 2018/09/01 21:08
I used to love this game. It was easy to understand. Today there was a new update. A Hunt, which allowed the player to send champions out automatically. Great idea. NOT REALLY. It allows the game to use up your gems and automatic refills unless you click a box. So each time, the game sends your champs out it actually uses up both the gems and your automatic refills. Why would you need the box? Only to scam players like me or others. I now hate this game. Each update makes it harder to progress and to keep advancing. Losing is not fun when you are gaming. Only winning counts. And this game sets you up for failure.
Latest update endless loop
by Kooskoos on 2018/12/05 15:30
After the latest update, the game thinks it’s not updated, so it sends me again to the App Store to update. This is very frustrating as I HAVE spent money on this game. Please fix this ! It seems I have issues of some sort after each update there is. And it seems more than just me are having this issue. (Tick tock, Christmas is around the corner and iTunes gift cards are always traded, people use these on other games if this one isn’t working) PLEASE FIX
Define Your Own Game
by Niedermeyer on 2018/08/12 12:00
I played this game for years, and spent almost no money except the occasional Christmas or birthday treat. I almost completely finished my castle, met a ton of great league members and “enemies,” and enjoyed the frequent updates. If you want to spend a bunch of money, help yourself, but it isn’t necessary for a rewarding experience. Have fun!
Great way to break up the day...but
by bdmccarthy on 2019/09/07 18:47
I haven’t had a solid connection in weeks. Spent over $70 last week for units and sapphires and couldn’t stay connected long enough (or even at all, like this afternoon) to use them effectively. Cannot contact game support because - oh that’s right - I cannot get into the game. Nice enough game but I’m not spending anymore money, and I don’t recommend anyone else spend money either.
Can’t login

So basically my phone broke and I got a new one. I went to sign in through Facebook but since I have two Facebook accounts I accidentally hit the wrong account. Now it won’t let me switch my Facebook or login into my other account please tell me how to fix this.
Don't do it!
by Ubiquitus on 2017/11/07 12:46
As a previous reviewer stated, Plarium did a total bait and switch to the players of this game. Baiting them into spending money to build up an aspect of the game, then later, making that aspect useless. Despite pages and pages of complaints on the forums, they refused to reverse their switch and would not even compromise. They only offered vague and nonsensical excuses for their actions and stated that the do not plan to change it. They are dishonest and don't care about the experience of the players. People play these games to be entertained, not robbed.
Incorrect statements by developers
by Jarhead975 on 2020/03/07 13:04
I have written a couple of times about my infant ray training issue, having the building at a level to get 3 full days of training on my main. However, I can only trian infantry for up to 2 days and 9 hours, not the full 3 days. Developers never responded or attempted to fix the issue. Also certain items are not rewarded in quest but can ONLY be purchased, making this more about money then entertainment
MOST AMAZING GAME OF ALL TIME!!!
by Dromadus on 2018/03/20 01:30
This game is so amazing. This is the game I’ve been playing for the last few years! It does require lots of time and effort or else you will be destroyed! So build up your castle and defense. Took me 2 years to get to level 50 and I would play it like 15 minutes a day!
Constantly broken
by L9fingers on 2019/09/07 17:36
I really enjoy this game and I’m cool with the constant evolution and need for new strategies. Lately the developers are really pushing more of a league level involvement with league brawls and champ tower events. With that said... this game is constantly breaking. Server updates and app updates are almost a daily occurrence and every update breaks the game. If this doesn’t improve I will leave the game. Many players have already moved on. It’s a shame.
Very deep gameplay, fun community, great app!
by thacrazynative on 2018/04/24 09:46
I have played for about a year or two now and its a very fun cellphone or tablet based strategy with PVP elements and lots of rewarding gameplay. Best advice find a good guild right away and don’t waste your resources on frivolous things and be careful how you send your offensive units. Great game!
Quick response to problem - fun game
by ThubanOne on 2017/11/28 12:46
This is for the developer: fix this! App just forced me to download the upgrade and could not then log in. OK, fast response (fixed by next day). Overall , very good game (playing for over two years)
Waste of time
by DiegoD. on 2018/05/26 04:55
In the beginning, you’ll spend a lot of time trying to build an army and level up but it’s pointless. You’ll end up getting attacked by super high level players over and over again. You’ll destroy your army trying to fight back and you’ll start from square one all over again. The option to buy troops and sapphires becomes the only REAL way to progress in this ruthless PvP game. Do yourself a favor, find a new game, and cut your losses.
Used to be good
by cberline on 2018/12/08 13:58
After the last update the gameplay has gone down rapidly. We have nothing to look forward to do. This game has just got boring. We use to be able to build toward something. Now forts are gone. Beacons are gone. You have gone from active players to inactive in weeks. You can’t even fix the correct screen sizes, and blinking chat. Millions of dollars for developers to fix easy things. All Stormfall wants and cares about now is $$$.
How is game play.
by STRANGER_909 on 2017/11/17 08:48
free to play is a bunch of bull. You have to spend to have fun or keep getting smashed. I have no problem spending, I played game of war for 4 1/2 years but developers got greedy and were coming out with multiple updates every week. You literally had to spend 100’s every month. I finally quit. I’ll spend to keep up with updates and have fun, but how often are they coming out with new things where you ha e to spend?
Downhill quick.
by kashikhan on 2019/08/24 00:20
This game used to be great. Now it is plagued with pay to win features that make moderate coiners and non coiners irrelevant and horrible updates that glitch out the whole game and make it unplayable for everyone. If you like being kicked from game constantly on any platform or not being able to log in for days and even weeks at a time, this is the game for you.

Show them the money!!!!
by Kevinlkaiser on 2019/12/10 23:13
So when almost all of the in game purchases cost $100 USD then you can see the rater below was calling the developer out correctly. This game use to be fun but unless you are an oil Barron then I don’t see how one could afford to play. To respond that you don’t need money is incorrect. You need to buy sketches to progress past a certain point and those cost cash money to make any reasonable/ marginal progress in the game.
Super Game
by Hargate on 2017/11/22 23:05
Lot's of fun to play. Good community of gamers. A little pricey unless you want to advance really slowly. Last upgrade on 11/22 was bad. Sent out one Raid, should have received 50k rss, got 0. Don’t know what Plarium does for QA, but it sure could be better!
Update.
by Vehsia on 2018/08/07 22:05
So not impressed with the latest update. Looking for new game to play. Why is it nobody listens to the little players that don’t have any monies. I understand spending money in game. That’s not the issue. Everybody’s opinions need to be listened too.
I am stopped in game

Glitch in Shrine of Summoning
by LebruuuuuunJames on 2018/06/08 19:49
Although this game is great and fun to play, this game has a major glitch in the shrine of summoning because I'll send one of my champions out and then they won't get sent out but the game will still end up taking my energy points away even though no champion was used 😡 also the xp points don't accumulate accurately when there is a tournament for champions xp
Really great
by Kyfamily on 2019/12/05 20:16
I think this was great I think that there needs to be a faster training time on troops though that’s the only bad thing
Still a scam
by NikeWolf777 on 2019/03/09 15:25
Nothing but servers with people who been playing for years and have 50 accounts and it’s so obvious this game is only here to steal your money and empower Russia. These battle reports favor the Russian worse than any game I have played. You can attack level 30 bases and lose more power of their Russian but not of their Russian bigs attack you. Plarium scam artist Jew company
Going downhill fast
by DonDayla on 2019/02/05 18:23
This game is getting harder to play with every “update”. You can’t do anything without the game freezing. Stop issuing updates that do nothing but make the game harder to play. Champs freeze, daily quests freeze, raiding freeze, stone heart trails freeze. Please fix all the bugs before you have no players left.

by Joey D 1167 on 2020/07/15 08:54
Thought was exciting and different then other mmo war games & The troop training and a different troops and how they work that is different little bit convoluted but there are things that I look for now in war games over the past year I’ve probably played over 60,most don’t make it past week! I just like doing reviews and I got certain rules now that if they are broken within the first week? I’m done with the game! Now game is a snoozer big time! But I can get past that in a way, I mean there is lots to do but that may be the problem but one of the rules I have is that if within the first week I’m running out of resources already whether I’m farming or not, that tells me something and this game is a pure cash grab! Do not let anyone for or let the developers tell you otherwise, and funny thing is, I’m a spender.. I don’t mind spending but this game you can already tell that you would have to spend a small fortune to be relevant! Also the major currency that really is everything in the game sapphires kind of ridiculous to come by! And a little bit that you do when here and there amounts to nothing really and they have a lot of things in place to really advance, you pretty much have to spend some.. now the server I’m on there’s not a lot of action there might be a nap I don’t know if that’s the case and you can find a server with an nap? then you can probably grow, you’ll have to grind a lot and it is easy to move up to level 40 really quick actually... but level 40 sounds big but it’s not there’s this whole separate thing I think you get to once you hit like level 100, it goes to another 50 levels or so.. this game has been out for what five years.. I don’t know, I’m not saying don’t play the game just for me it’s too boring and I already have a couple other games that I spend on and I could tell this game would be a lot of micro transactions especially when it comes to needing sapphires! So it’s a soft pass for me.. Jrock review...

Broken
by Tablet Gamer Dood on 2019/09/15 14:33
Updating to two stars. Game works now after major release which is a welcome improvement but still many gameplay issues exist. League chat, champion training, hero equipment modals all cause boot to home screen. Seems like instantiation issue affecting all mini games. Game is also showing stack trace error upon app refresh which is a ux no no. Again... I like the story, the strategy, and the community, but the foundation that brings all those things together, the engineering, needs more work. Will continue to update as things get better... or worse. One point worth making, the support team is very nice, I just wish they did not need to do as much support for their sake and mine!

2 many upgrades 4 revenue, server connection gets worse
by Kool C. on 2019/09/09 17:35
Over the years, I played Stormfall, Rise of Balur with few accounts. Plarium has updates quite often with too many bugs. Average once a month. Some updates cause more problems than before, and every major updates add new revenue schemes. Worst part of Stormfall is bad connections and request to relogin. Stormfall requires latest hardware with high powered CPU, much memory, and high bandwidth connection. My new iPad 128mb wasn’t good enough for last update. I had to relogin after almost every click. Frustration is an understatement. This is after a new owner and multiple major upgrades. Developer wants detailed failure data but it doesn’t change much afterwards. Even top tier coiners who spend hundreds of dollars per month (thousands in some months)doesn’t always get best customer service either. Another unfair thing about Stormfall is there are lots of Russian federation players who can buy game currency at less than 1/10th of EU or US players. They can buy more troops for cheaps and kill your league easier. Why do I still play? Many good players left but few players I have developed relationships with are good. Otherwise I would have quit too. When my game mates are gone then I’ll be gone too.
LOVED THE GAME AS IT WAS 3-5 YRS AGO
by MoonBaby22 on 2019/09/09 16:26
This game has become exclusively about who is willing to pour money into the game versus the game used to be about work and reward as well as team comradery. The Tower feature is an unnecessary addition and really is not enjoyed by those who play the game. Once again it rolls back to money-anyone who buys their way in/out and around advancement glitches within the game is a happy camper. They are always the strongest and capable of rushing 70-80% of their fellow players. The face that they receive VIP status for both playing/spending just reinforces that the game developers are more worried about financial gain than member retention. I really wish everything in this game -as far as ranking /needs/ and building strength did not revolve around paying for 3/4 of it. At this point over 1/2 of 20 leagues I played with have already abandoned their castles and quit playing all together. For the average person looking for a way to relax and enjoy a game -I wouldn’t recommend SF, but if you are above average economically with a competitive trait and have money to burn-then I would recommend this game. The spenders seem to love it!
Dependable developers
by WintersWhisper on 2019/09/09 15:18
This game is not a waste of time. Yes the game has been almost unplayable lately but the developers have responded. It takes time to get everything just right. Especially in a game like this one that keeps growing and changing. Patience is the key. We want everything right now! Lol It may seem like nothings being done but the devs always come through. At least they have in the few years I’ve been playing. I love this game.

Plarium is a joke
by Jfred36 on 2019/09/07 18:22
This game used to be the best... but now every update/bug fix/lag fix breaks something new. Can’t stay logged in, or do anything in game for weeks now. Constant connection errors/ re-login error messages/ server updates that they just tell you is your internet connection problem not theirs. I highly doubt when everyone in the game has the same problem it’s all their internet connections. Own your issues and fix your game problems Plarium. You make plenty of money from players. There should not be these kinds of problems. Don’t waste your time or money. They won’t get another dime from me.
Constantly broken

Unplayable With Glitches and Crashes
by WhiteWolf2883 on 2019/09/04 12:20
Game has been glitches to the point it is unplayable for over a month. Will crash 10 times in a 15 min period. Programmers don’t seem capable of repairing it. All started when they introduced the latest pay to play feature called the battle pass. Many players have left the game because of the issue in the last 30 days. They just gave up that it would ever be fixed or found other games. It’s really hard to imagine a reputable gaming company that would allow this to go on for so long. They will de-emphasize the issue in the reply to this and say that we need to contact them with specific details and they will fix, but we have all been doing that for a month. They like to act dumb and try to put the burden of repairing the game on the players. They know the game is unplayable and have asked us to “please keep playing” in various in-game messages. I am sorry, Pkarium, I like many before me, can no longer do that.

It’s not really free
by Trekblue98 on 2019/08/25 01:21
This is the most expensive game I have ever seen or played. You keep hearing you can play for free but it’s simply not true. In order to win prizes you need to be on the top teams, which rarely take non spenders. In fact, the odds of the in game winnings are not accurate at all, in favor of the house most of the time. If you don’t spend and upgrade you can not increase levels that quickly. There are beacons in the game that were great for a long time, then they were over produced and tournaments allowed the destruction of them and they have never come back. But you can spends 1000s to temporarily recover them. I still can’t express the cost. They have these things called champions (level 5) and you MUST buy them if you want them. It’s costs $100 to attempt to get one and the odds are extremely low In order to get them all it costs between $5000 to $10000, unless they give you lots of doubles which they do. The company has destroyed the game, and the cost is unbearable, I’ll never complain about buying apple products again. If you are not willing to pay 50 to 100$ a week go find something else to play. I just passed my 5 year anniversary in the game and they gave me about 5$ in troops, that’s their generosity. I do play it and do like it but the fun is wearing out, every month there are more and more items to buy and nothing is reasonable it’s crazy expensive.
Downhill quick.
by kashikhan on 2019/08/24 00:20
This game used to be great. Now it is plagued with pay to win features that make moderate coiners and non coiners irrelevant and horrible updates that glitch out the whole game and make it unplayable for everyone. If you like being kicked from game constantly on any platform or not being able to log in for days and even weeks at a time, this is the game for you.
So many years, so many hourglasses
by Lhlb on 2019/08/23 22:17
I have been playing this game for a really long time, and it is a good time waster. But they seriously have to fix their server side issues, the game freezes at least once every ten minutes and loses connection to the server. Checking the forums, this is a wide spread issue affecting many people across multiple devices and locations. I used to even pay into this game every once and a while, but not since the lag issues started. Unless the hourglasses go away, I might be done soon.
Pay-to-Win: All they care about is $$$
by *Sieglinde* on 2019/08/14 02:53
Do not download this game unless you’re prepared to spend A LOT of money. The only limit on one’s power is the amount of money one is willing to spend — the top players spent $1k/month or more. In exchange for thousands of dollars, Plarium gives “VIP” players a personal customer service representative, thousands of bonus sapphires, and items that make them so powerful that one of these “money players” can easily destroy an ENTIRE LEAGUE of players who spend $30/month or so. This power imbalance has ruined the game. It used to be fun to upgrade beacons and forts, but nobody does that now — the $1K/month crowd will downgrade it as soon as they see it. Plarium has made it clear that they do not care about the non-VIP crowd. They ignore players’ in-game error reports. They are condescending and dismissive in the Plarium forums if someone suggests all is not well. Their Facebook group moderators are as helpful as possible, but they lack power to fix stuff. Plarium’s greed is killing this game, which makes those of us who loved the game very sad. :-( Note to developers: Unless you intend to address the power imbalance, there’s no need to respond to this review.
You can’t use your free boosts.
by Disappointed 100000 on 2019/07/31 01:23
If you attack someone you can no longer get your troops back. I have hundreds of boosts that I could use but palarIiym now requires you to pay for what you already had for free.
Its a great game
by Abo s3oood k32 on 2019/06/18 17:59
It’s good game and I play it for 4 years But I have some small problems 1- we cant send than 3 cravan and only 20 carvan in one day If you can make it open freely it’s will be good 2- make us give gifts to uor alliance members And thnx

Letters and report problem
by Hawaii Jang on 2019/04/26 08:48
When I touch the letter and report, it keep stopping the game. No can do nothing. It has been a problem 1 week. I reported it to the g.m and never receive an answer. I'm getting regret to play. If it does not fix it, that's fine I will stop playing for saving money.
Need original designers back
by f u c k t a r d on 2019/04/23 03:26
I’ve played Stormfall since 2015 or longer and in the last year to year and half I find myself playing less and less!! These updates are horrible I couldn’t imagine be a newbie and try to figure this game out!! If I didn’t have 25 very close friends that play this game it would have been already deleted but each update I’m getting closer to saying F*** it and deleting!! This game is now centered around spending money and not everyone wants to do that and it’s sad they’ve turned an amazing game into the worse!! I wish red knight was still around he’d set someone straight!! I’m going to try to contact King of COA and see if he can help!!
Pay to Win
by godman_89 on 2019/04/23 01:54
I don’t mind if games cost a little up front nor do I mind paying for an occasional ad on. What I don’t like is when you literally have to pay to be the best. You can build a reasonable size army and really dedicate yourself to the game day in and day out. However, once you attack one person who has paid his life savings into the game, you are literally done. You will not win and your army is toast. I’m not exaggerating. When you play, your screen is bombarded with packs you can purchase to build your army faster. I don’t have anything against companies wanting to make money, but holy cow this is murder! Don’t bother trying to hold a fortress because those who spend an ungodly amount of money (and there are many players who do) can take it out in one hit which is stupid insane. If I could rate this game lower, I would. However I can’t deter people from playing. I can only warn you to what you should expect. Either spend or don’t have fun playing.
Cheated, Lies and theft
by Rommer1 on 2019/04/17 11:49
This is my first game review, but I feel I need to warn people. I will start I have been playing this game for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed it. Recently I bought a $99 pack and it was missing items that were in the advertisement. I contacted support and they were useless? Do you have screenshots they said? Well no, no screenshots, NO help. I buy on impulse. Why take screenshots. Well now I learned. So I went back and looked at all the in game purchases for the last year for Stormfall and I feel like been cheated and stolen from. Be very careful when buying from them. Take many screenshots. Best of luck dealing with support!
Issues with login
by Dungeon Creeper on 2019/03/22 02:01
Plarium charges a lot of money for bundles and everything else. They also like to take your money and take forever to respond to issues that are simple
Great Game!
by Vaughn Kanagy on 2019/03/09 20:48
Fun game to play when your stressed!
Still a scam
by NikeWolf777 on 2019/03/09 15:25
Nothing but servers with people who been playing for years and have 50 accounts and it’s so obvious this game is only here to steal your money and empower Russia. These battle reports favor the Russian worse than any game I have played. You can attack level 30 bases and lose more power of their Russian but not of their Russian bigs attack you. Plarium scam artist Jew company
Reliability
by dalton314159 on 2019/02/21 01:21
The game is now unreliable. I have not been able to log in for hours. Every other app on phone and iPad work fine. Either Plarium security is bad and they have been hacked or they are just plain incompetent.
Fix the game.
by VA 1945 on 2019/02/21 00:56
Not loading. 😩😩😩
Going downhill fast
by DonDayla on 2019/02/05 18:23
This game is getting harder to play with every “update”. You can’t do anything without the game freezing. Stop issuing updates that do nothing but make the game harder to play. Champs freeze, daily quests freeze, raiding freeze, stone heart trails freeze. Please fix all the bugs before you have no players left.
Destroyed the game!
by Franklinish on 2018/12/19 23:30
I have been playing this game for about two years and have loved it but am now considering quitting. The developers have gotten greedy they have destroyed the integrity of the game. Many of us have spent considerable time and $ obtaining upgrades and building our league strength, as encouraged by Palarium, all to be now worthless because of their constant upgrades and changes. The input of players is not really listened to except for the ones that spend considerable money. If you are looking for a good war strategy game that remains constant and reliable....not so sure this is the one.
Used to be good
by cberline on 2018/12/08 13:58
After the last update the gameplay has gone down rapidly. We have nothing to look forward to do. This game has just got boring. We use to be able to build toward something. Now forts are gone. Beacons are gone. You have gone from active players to inactive in weeks. You can’t even fix the correct screen sizes, and blinking chat. Millions of dollars for developers to fix easy things. All Stormfall wants and cares about now is $$$.
Latest update endless loop
by Kooskoos on 2018/12/05 15:30
After the latest update, the game thinks it’s not updated, so it sends me again to the App Store to update. This is very frustrating as I HAVE spent money on this game. Please fix this ! It seems I have issues of some sort after each update there is. And it seems more than just me are having this issue. (Tick tock, Christmas is around the corner and iTunes gift cards are always traded, people use these on other games if this one isn’t working) PLEASE FIX
New upgrades
by curs1 on 2018/11/08 13:04
Very poor decision on palrium part playing field is even more uneven. And favors the coiners or huge leagues. Small leagues can’t compete . To even upgrade with the beacon mess that was created awhile ago .
New update / Fortresses
by Bigoscar1968 on 2018/11/08 12:53
In the new update it is now possible to wipe out years of hard work and sweat with a couple of attacks. This is not fair to common and core players. I have spent plenty of money through the years on things in the game but with this update it renders all I have spent to nothing more than if I had not spent a dime. I am not impressed that it has all of the sudden become a money player only game. I love the PC version as well but stopped it a couple of years ago due to the same issues. I hate that it no longer is challenging for the common player. Please do something about it before you lose many good and daily players.
Upgrades
by RyanHane on 2018/11/08 05:56
I’ve been a player for a couple years. In that time I’ve seen many upgrades. It seems to me that this latest one just screws us all out of hard work in last couple years, not to mention the cost of new upgrade.... bad Stormfall
Money grab
by The Drizzt FVW on 2018/11/08 03:02
I am a five year player. The developers add updates that require hundreds of dollars to complete to remain competitive in the game. The latest update destroyed more than a years worth of time and money invested into this game.
Update
by capla12 on 2018/11/08 00:53

Good BUT going downhill rapidly
by Leader12345 on 2018/11/07 01:17
I have previously reviewed about upgrade issues breaking the game by being mandatory but not being available to download. Now they’re simply breaking the game. I have played Stormfall for quite some time. I’m one of those players who developers don’t like - I take the free to play to heart. So I know I need to be patient, make wise decisions and play as team. This suits my playing style and I am very active in a competitive empire. However the developers have decided to radically change the game once again, this time damaging a core concept that of league fortresses. With the latest update even the mightiest fortress can be shredded to nothing in a matter of a few attacks. This isn’t a might happen but already HAS happened and we are less than 2 days after update. Complaints have been made in the game forums but appear to be ignored. If this continues there will be no reason to continue as it is no longer as advertised as a MMO strategy game.
Carrot on a Stick
by Stormfall Bait and Switch on 2018/11/06 12:46
With this newest update, Stormfall finds new ways to get you to spend money. The ratio of in-game rewards and materials needed to upgrade is disproportionate. Do not play.
Great game
by livin simple life on 2018/11/05 16:03
Love this game and wonderful people in it.
Best I can give them...
by RiickyRicardo on 2018/09/08 14:42
Plarium make a decent game with good graphics, which is why I gave them 2 stars. BUT - the only new development they do is to add more “pay for” features. Bugs and requested enhancements are totally ignored. Customer Support is virtually non-existent unless you are a big spender. The big spenders are given extra perks to make them unbeatable, causing the games to be dominated by those that want to spend a lot of money on a game. It’s not fun anymore. By the, it should be noted that none of he graphics shown here are part of the game - they are for marketing only.
Losses
by Playerinfinity on 2018/09/01 21:08
I used to love this game. It was easy to understand. Today there was a new update. A Hunt, which allowed the player to send champions out automatically. Great idea. NOT REALLY. It allows the game to use up your gems and automatic refills unless you click a box. So each time, the game sends your champs out it actually uses up both the gems and your automatic refills. Why would you need the box? Only to scam players like me or others. I now hate this game. Each update makes it harder to progress and to keep advancing. Losing is not fun when you are gaming. Only winning counts. And this game sets you up for failure.
Define Your Own Game
by Niedermeyer on 2018/08/12 12:00
I played this game for years, and spent almost no money except the occasional Christmas or birthday treat. I almost completely finished my castle, met a ton of great league members and “enemies,” and enjoyed the frequent updates. If you want to spend a bunch of money, help yourself, but it isn’t necessary for a rewarding experience. Have fun!
Changes....
by Wyvern's Shadow on 2018/08/10 12:22
I don’t like the changes. Especially when it comes to selecting troops. If you accidentally select a troop you don’t want, they stay in your selection.... I don't like that. The old format was far better. Also, the tower thing is basically useless, as units become “locked” up and can’t be reused. Unless you coin, it’s extremely hard to get scrolls to summon anyone new. So your selection stays way too small. There needs to be an easier way to earn scrolls and the stones to advance. Not everyone that plays has money to burn. I’ve been playing for almost 3 years and am getting discouraged because the game wants my to buy things I need. I don’t have that kind of money. Can ya’ll work on that instead of adding more things that you want me to buy??
Update.
by Vehsia on 2018/08/07 22:05
So not impressed with the latest update. Looking for new game to play. Why is it nobody listens to the little players that don’t have any monies. I understand spending money in game. That’s not the issue. Everybody’s opinions need to be listened too.
A decent game, a few suggestions
by dagg3r09 on 2018/08/06 13:36
To start, I am a very experienced player in this game and would recommend that as many people who are looking to play the game read this as possible. This game is tough. It’s challenging to learn and can lead to failure easily. Perseverance and patience are required to overcome your enemies. Battles fought in a few minutes can set you back for months, where you rebuild using battlegrounds and tournaments. The community of people in this game are some of the best I’ve seen across any gaming platform, many humble and kind; willing to help you learn(there are a few meanies out there but they’re fun to mess with, even if they’re stronger than you ;) ). I would give this game 5 stars, and above is my review to incoming players, but below is a note to the developer. Hello, in one of the recent updates, the Stoneheart trials were added to keep the larger players of the game interested. This concept was genius in a sense, and a little overlooked in another. By boosting the power of players that have spent years on the game, players fighting to rise in power are under a huge setback. A defense of griffons, demons, archers/lost ones, golems and heroes can easily be overpowered by a few Stoneheart trial units. My recommendation to get your money flow from the rising players back (as opposed to relying on the few with enough things unlocked) is to either balance the Stoneheart trial units a little more, or to add a few troops to the regular arsenal that can block/ damper the effects of these massive Stoneheart units. Thank you for your time!
Okay
by E2rone on 2018/08/06 13:20
Solid game. I would recommend buying some more builders as it speeds up the game considerably.
Awesome Game
by BH_21 on 2018/08/01 11:55
One of the best free to plays I have ever played. Why you ask? Simple, this is one of few games where all in game currency can be earned without spending money irl. If you don’t understand the importance of that; then you probably don’t have a full grasp of game design. Kudos Plarium!
Money sink , totally pay to win
by -Maric- on 2018/07/11 05:59
If you can afford to sink $50+ bucks a month to compete in the game you might enjoy this. But if you can’t, you are not going to have a very pleasant time in this game.

Glitch in Shrine of Summoning
by LebruuuuuunJames on 2018/06/08 19:49
Although this game is great and fun to play, this game has a major glitch in the shrine of summoning because I'll send one of my champions out and then they won't get sent out but the game will still end up taking my energy points away even though no champion was used 😡 also the xp points don't accumulate accurately when there is a tournament for champions xp
This is some bullshyt game cheaters & liars !!!!
by Look for a better game on 2018/06/06 13:17
Ppl don’t download this game I would give zero stars Shyty game with mainly all Russian ppl If you find anything wrong instead of solving the problems you will get Block >>APPLE-should remove this game ASAP Thy r cheating left & right Get your self a better game
Waste of time
by DiegoD. on 2018/05/26 04:55
In the beginning, you’ll spend a lot of time trying to build an army and level up but it’s pointless. You’ll end up getting attacked by super high level players over and over again. You’ll destroy your army trying to fight back and you’ll start from square one all over again. The option to buy troops and sapphires becomes the only REAL way to progress in this ruthless PvP game. Do yourself a favor, find a new game, and cut your losses.
Very deep gameplay, fun community, great app!
by thacrazynative on 2018/04/24 09:46
I have played for about a year or two now and its a very fun cellphone or tablet based strategy with PVP elements and lots of rewarding gameplay. Best advice find a good guild right away and don’t waste your resources on frivolous things and be careful how you send your offensive units. Great game!
Ridiculous losses in battle
by FUKITUNES!!! on 2018/04/08 16:27
Troop losses are so out of wack the game is mostly luck and patience, very little strategy. Good community though, but I cannot recommend.
MOST AMAZING GAME OF ALL TIME!!!
by Dromadus on 2018/03/20 01:30
This game is so amazing. This is the game I’ve been playing for the last few years! It does require lots of time and effort or else you will be destroyed! So build up your castle and defense. Took me 2 years to get to level 50 and I would play it like 15 minutes a day!
Upset.
by Blueyedangel60 on 2018/03/05 21:46

Horrible Game
by Bad game II on 2018/02/13 23:44
I played the game over two years, as time went by the game became a money eating machine, bad updates, horrible new features. If you want to play be ready to spend money if you want to have an opportunity against other players.

Pay to play slowest game ever
by Skip over this one on 2017/12/11 14:15
This game is all about pay to play. All new features are geared toward making money. To get anywhere you have to take risks which are capitalized on by rich high level a-holes who constantly pick on and farm anyone they can, why?.. because the game actually encourages them to pick on new active players over farming the multitude of smarter players who quit the game long ago.
Quick response to problem - fun game
by ThubanOne on 2017/11/28 12:46
This is for the developer: fix this! App just forced me to download the upgrade and could not then log in. OK, fast response (fixed by next day). Overall , very good game (playing for over two years)
Super Game
by Hargate on 2017/11/22 23:05
Lot's of fun to play. Good community of gamers. A little pricey unless you want to advance really slowly. Last upgrade on 11/22 was bad. Sent out one Raid, should have received 50k rss, got 0. Don’t know what Plarium does for QA, but it sure could be better!
Can’t download the new version anyone having issues as well iPhone carrier

Opportunity...
by JennaH82 on 2017/11/22 20:31
It is true that this is a free game and if you’re patient you don’t have to pay the in-app fees to improve your status. These game developers do not earn money by giving their games away without an option to fast track your castle with real money. I am only giving 3 stars because I think they’re overcharging to fast track. It’s a fun game though and I’m not overly competitive. You get more than what you pay for in this game (which is $0 to play) and they always make improvements!
How is game play.
by STRANGER_909 on 2017/11/17 08:48
free to play is a bunch of bull. You have to spend to have fun or keep getting smashed. I have no problem spending, I played game of war for 4 1/2 years but developers got greedy and were coming out with multiple updates every week. You literally had to spend 100’s every month. I finally quit. I’ll spend to keep up with updates and have fun, but how often are they coming out with new things where you ha e to spend?
Very fun
by Bdbeiwkanzbhs on 2017/11/12 16:20
The people who say you need Mony to play it are wrong it helps a lot but I still get bye without it and it's very fun
Game is now stealing from “investors”!

Customer Service

Horrible. They have a generic response for most things.
If I could give this game ZERO stars, I would donkey kong punch that zero.
by Bbytgfred on 2017/11/07 13:28
Don't be fooled by the frequently and loosely used term of "FREE" which is so eloquently strewn about on Stormfall's information page. You will realize relatively soon in the game that you need money to make something of yourself otherwise you're just gonna end up as one of the million farms in the Stormfall graveyard. You will get sucked in, but what keeps you in are the people you meet and play with/against. Plarium has shown and continues to show that it has no ceiling for creating new features (cha-ching cha-ching) to the game to strengthen your army/castle etc. Its a vicious circle of dumping money into the game and to be quite frank, their actions seem to be geared more towards making profits rather than caring about their loyal players. Don't play Stormfall. Buy a time machine, go back in time, buy Stock in Stormfall and sell those shares while Plarium is rolling in dough.
Don't do it!
by Ubiquitus on 2017/11/07 12:46
As a previous reviewer stated, Plarium did a total bait and switch to the players of this game. Baiting them into spending money to build up an aspect of the game, then later, making that aspect useless. Despite pages and pages of complaints on the forums, they refused to reverse their switch and would not even compromise. They only offered vague and nonsensical excuses for their actions and stated that the do not plan to change it. They are dishonest and don't care about the experience of the players. People play these games to be entertained, not robbed.
Worse developers and only care about the money
by oney hungry on 2017/11/04 13:16
I been playing this game for two years and I truly will be boycotting this company and the game developers no more will they see my money and as a game community it is important we all do the same ! Show them we aren’t going to be rob no more!
Fraud
by Sylphi on 2017/11/03 16:48
I have been playing this game for over three years. I am a monster player on server one that has spent a insane amount of money. I never had a problem spending money to get further ahead but what I have a huge problem with is the fraud that they just committed. They came out with an item then a few weeks later they sent out a message game wide increasing it x3. After people spending tens of thousands of dollars game wide. Then they reduced it by 10 folds. That is called bait and switch that is the act of fraud. The game has been dying for quite some time now and this act of fraud that they just committed is going to force people like me not to spend anymore money and the game is going to go even further downhill.
Great game

Good distraction game but terrible code release cycle
by Bigdadnc on 2017/10/12 17:55
Been playing this game over well over two years. Some strategy is required but basically you can sit back and farm or just be an all out warrior. No need to login every 10 mins to checkout your rss unless you want. No gems required but the gem specials will tempt you. Why not throw the developers a few coins? Join a league and build some friendships. Don't be surprised however when they release code and your game stops working for a few days while they figure out what happened to the iOS devices. It's a little frustrating.

by Babystego on 2017/09/26 03:00
Fun game, it's one that doesn't take much time when you're in a rush but also need a distraction. Only downside is that soulstones are HORRIBLE trying to get. I'm in an inactive zone so trying to find PvP units is impossible. Update: It’s really annoying when you’re raiding multiple castles and then your game crashes... and then it won’t fully load up before kicking you out. I’m gunna be mad if my castle gets attacked and I lose my offense from the raids or losing all that food I harvested.
DO NOT PLAY/UNFAIR/AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!
by F******* Plarium on 2017/08/26 16:04
8.26.17 Update, this game will glitch and you will lose your troops and they will not do anything to compensate you for their error. They have the worst customer service....EVER! DO NOT EVEN THINK TO DOWNLOAD THIS GAME! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! Plarium does not treat all players equally. They favor Russians. They also do not punish hackers and cheaters hard enough. Currently, if you play on apple devices you will have massive challenges including not being able to log in. This is a team strategy game, with ascending daily log in rewards. I am sure Plarium will never cover the losses of each player from their ineptness. Their customer service is worse than Comcast. All Plarium cares about is taking your money. They once made an error in their customers favor and were extremely fast to remove their mistake. They cited fair play, but it was to have their customers send them more money. They change the parameters of the game so often so that you spend more money to recover. They are money hungry whores. I believe they fund some players and teams to create wars to have their foes pay more. If you are dumb enough after reading this to play, make sure you join a top league to learn quickly. I IMPLORE YOU, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME.
Crap support
by ShadowBear8 on 2017/08/18 17:03
Last pvp tourney I tried to collect my rewards and it tells me I must choose a reward first and even when I do it want let me claim them. I tried contacting support and it wont even recognize my castle coordinates so I can submit a ticket.I will be deleting this game just like all the other platinum games I have deleted!

LOVED THE GAME AS IT WAS 3-5 YRS AGO
by MoonBaby22 on 2019/09/09 16:26
This game has become exclusively about who is willing to pour money into the game versus the game used to be about work and reward as well as team comradery. The Tower feature is an unnecessary addition and really is not enjoyed by those who play the game. Once again it rolls back to money-anyone who buys their way in/out and around advancement glitches within the game is a happy camper. They are always the strongest and capable of rushing 70-80% of their fellow players. The face that they receive VIP status for both playing/spending just reinforces that the game developers are more worried about financial gain than member retention. I really wish everything in this game -as far as ranking /needs/ and building strength did not revolve around paying for 3/4 of it. At this point over 1/2 of 20 leagues I played with have already abandoned their castles and quit playing all together. For the average person looking for a way to relax and enjoy a game -I wouldn’t recommend SF, but if you are above average economically with a competitive trait and have money to burn-then I would recommend this game. The spenders seem to love it!
Unplayable With Glitches and Crashes
by WhiteWolf2883 on 2019/09/04 12:20
Game has been glitches to the point it is unplayable for over a month. Will crash 10 times in a 15 min period. Programmers don’t seem capable of repairing it. All started when they introduced the latest pay to play feature called the battle pass. Many players have left the game because of the issue in the last 30 days. They just gave up that it would ever be fixed or found other games. It’s really hard to imagine a reputable gaming company that would allow this to go on for so long. They will de-emphasize the issue in the reply to this and say that we need to contact them with specific details and they will fix, but we have all been doing that for a month. They like to act dumb and try to put the burden of repairing the game on the players. They know the game is unplayable and have asked us to “please keep playing” in various in-game messages. I am sorry, Pkarium, I like many before me, can no longer do that.
Good BUT going downhill rapidly
by Leader12345 on 2018/11/07 01:17
I have previously reviewed about upgrade issues breaking the game by being mandatory but not being available to download. Now they’re simply breaking the game. I have played Stormfall for quite some time. I’m one of those players who developers don’t like - I take the free to play to heart. So I know I need to be patient, make wise decisions and play as team. This suits my playing style and I am very active in a competitive empire. However the developers have decided to radically change the game once again, this time damaging a core concept that of league fortresses. With the latest update even the mightiest fortress can be shredded to nothing in a matter of a few attacks. This isn’t a might happen but already HAS happened and we are less than 2 days after update. Complaints have been made in the game forums but appear to be ignored. If this continues there will be no reason to continue as it is no longer as advertised as a MMO strategy game.
If I could give this game ZERO stars, I would donkey kong punch that zero.
by Bbytgfred on 2017/11/07 13:28
Don't be fooled by the frequently and loosely used term of "FREE" which is so eloquently strewn about on Stormfall's information page. You will realize relatively soon in the game that you need money to make something of yourself otherwise you're just gonna end up as one of the million farms in the Stormfall graveyard. You will get sucked in, but what keeps you in are the people you meet and play with/against. Plarium has shown and continues to show that it has no ceiling for creating new features (cha-ching cha-ching) to the game to strengthen your army/castle etc. Its a vicious circle of dumping money into the game and to be quite frank, their actions seem to be geared more towards making profits rather than caring about their loyal players. Don't play Stormfall. Buy a time machine, go back in time, buy Stock in Stormfall and sell those shares while Plarium is rolling in dough.
Changes....
by Wyvern's Shadow on 2018/08/10 12:22
I don’t like the changes. Especially when it comes to selecting troops. If you accidentally select a troop you don’t want, they stay in your selection.... I don't like that. The old format was far better. Also, the tower thing is basically useless, as units become “locked” up and can’t be reused. Unless you coin, it’s extremely hard to get scrolls to summon anyone new. So your selection stays way too small. There needs to be an easier way to earn scrolls and the stones to advance. Not everyone that plays has money to burn. I’ve been playing for almost 3 years and am getting discouraged because the game wants my to buy things I need. I don’t have that kind of money. Can ya’ll work on that instead of adding more things that you want me to buy??
2 many upgrades 4 revenue, server connection gets worse
by Kool C. on 2019/09/09 17:35
Over the years, I played Stormfall, Rise of Balur with few accounts. Plarium has updates quite often with too many bugs. Average once a month. Some updates cause more problems than before, and every major updates add new revenue schemes. Worst part of Stormfall is bad connections and request to relogin. Stormfall requires latest hardware with high powered CPU, much memory, and high bandwidth connection. My new iPad 128mb wasn’t good enough for last update. I had to relogin after almost every click. Frustration is an understatement. This is after a new owner and multiple major upgrades. Developer wants detailed failure data but it doesn’t change much afterwards. Even top tier coiners who spend hundreds of dollars per month (thousands in some months)doesn’t always get best customer service either. Another unfair thing about Stormfall is there are lots of Russian federation players who can buy game currency at less than 1/10th of EU or US players. They can buy more troops for cheaps and kill your league easier. Why do I still play? Many good players left but few players I have developed relationships with are good. Otherwise I would have quit too. When my game mates are gone then I’ll be gone too.
Pay-to-Win: All they care about is $$$
by *Sieglinde* on 2019/08/14 02:53
Do not download this game unless you’re prepared to spend A LOT of money. The only limit on one’s power is the amount of money one is willing to spend — the top players spent $1k/month or more. In exchange for thousands of dollars, Plarium gives “VIP” players a personal customer service representative, thousands of bonus sapphires, and items that make them so powerful that one of these “money players” can easily destroy an ENTIRE LEAGUE of players who spend $30/month or so. This power imbalance has ruined the game. It used to be fun to upgrade beacons and forts, but nobody does that now — the $1K/month crowd will downgrade it as soon as they see it. Plarium has made it clear that they do not care about the non-VIP crowd. They ignore players’ in-game error reports. They are condescending and dismissive in the Plarium forums if someone suggests all is not well. Their Facebook group moderators are as helpful as possible, but they lack power to fix stuff. Plarium’s greed is killing this game, which makes those of us who loved the game very sad. :-( Note to developers: Unless you intend to address the power imbalance, there’s no need to respond to this review.
Broken
by Tablet Gamer Dood on 2019/09/15 14:33
Updating to two stars. Game works now after major release which is a welcome improvement but still many gameplay issues exist. League chat, champion training, hero equipment modals all cause boot to home screen. Seems like instantiation issue affecting all mini games. Game is also showing stack trace error upon app refresh which is a ux no no. Again... I like the story, the strategy, and the community, but the foundation that brings all those things together, the engineering, needs more work. Will continue to update as things get better... or worse. One point worth making, the support team is very nice, I just wish they did not need to do as much support for their sake and mine!
Fraud
by Sylphi on 2017/11/03 16:48
I have been playing this game for over three years. I am a monster player on server one that has spent a insane amount of money. I never had a problem spending money to get further ahead but what I have a huge problem with is the fraud that they just committed. They came out with an item then a few weeks later they sent out a message game wide increasing it x3. After people spending tens of thousands of dollars game wide. Then they reduced it by 10 folds. That is called bait and switch that is the act of fraud. The game has been dying for quite some time now and this act of fraud that they just committed is going to force people like me not to spend anymore money and the game is going to go even further downhill.
So many years, so many hourglasses
by Lhlb on 2019/08/23 22:17
I have been playing this game for a really long time, and it is a good time waster. But they seriously have to fix their server side issues, the game freezes at least once every ten minutes and loses connection to the server. Checking the forums, this is a wide spread issue affecting many people across multiple devices and locations. I used to even pay into this game every once and a while, but not since the lag issues started. Unless the hourglasses go away, I might be done soon.
Dependable developers
by WintersWhisper on 2019/09/09 15:18
This game is not a waste of time. Yes the game has been almost unplayable lately but the developers have responded. It takes time to get everything just right. Especially in a game like this one that keeps growing and changing. Patience is the key. We want everything right now! Lol It may seem like nothings being done but the devs always come through. At least they have in the few years I’ve been playing. I love this game.
New update / Fortresses
by Bigoscar1968 on 2018/11/08 12:53
In the new update it is now possible to wipe out years of hard work and sweat with a couple of attacks. This is not fair to common and core players. I have spent plenty of money through the years on things in the game but with this update it renders all I have spent to nothing more than if I had not spent a dime. I am not impressed that it has all of the sudden become a money player only game. I love the PC version as well but stopped it a couple of years ago due to the same issues. I hate that it no longer is challenging for the common player. Please do something about it before you lose many good and daily players.
Pay to Win
by godman_89 on 2019/04/23 01:54
I don’t mind if games cost a little up front nor do I mind paying for an occasional ad on. What I don’t like is when you literally have to pay to be the best. You can build a reasonable size army and really dedicate yourself to the game day in and day out. However, once you attack one person who has paid his life savings into the game, you are literally done. You will not win and your army is toast. I’m not exaggerating. When you play, your screen is bombarded with packs you can purchase to build your army faster. I don’t have anything against companies wanting to make money, but holy cow this is murder! Don’t bother trying to hold a fortress because those who spend an ungodly amount of money (and there are many players who do) can take it out in one hit which is stupid insane. If I could rate this game lower, I would. However I can’t deter people from playing. I can only warn you to what you should expect. Either spend or don’t have fun playing.
Plarium is a joke
by Jfred36 on 2019/09/07 18:22
This game used to be the best... but now every update/bug fix/lag fix breaks something new. Can’t stay logged in, or do anything in game for weeks now. Constant connection errors/ re-login error messages/ server updates that they just tell you is your internet connection problem not theirs. I highly doubt when everyone in the game has the same problem it’s all their internet connections. Own your issues and fix your game problems Plarium. You make plenty of money from players. There should not be these kinds of problems. Don’t waste your time or money. They won’t get another dime from me.
Destroyed the game!
by Franklinish on 2018/12/19 23:30
I have been playing this game for about two years and have loved it but am now considering quitting. The developers have gotten greedy they have destroyed the integrity of the game. Many of us have spent considerable time and $ obtaining upgrades and building our league strength, as encouraged by Palarium, all to be now worthless because of their constant upgrades and changes. The input of players is not really listened to except for the ones that spend considerable money. If you are looking for a good war strategy game that remains constant and reliable....not so sure this is the one.
Awesome Game
by BH_21 on 2018/08/01 11:55
One of the best free to plays I have ever played. Why you ask? Simple, this is one of few games where all in game currency can be earned without spending money irl. If you don’t understand the importance of that; then you probably don’t have a full grasp of game design. Kudos Plarium!
Cheated, Lies and theft
by Rommer1 on 2019/04/17 11:49
This is my first game review, but I feel I need to warn people. I will start I have been playing this game for almost 2 years now and I have enjoyed it. Recently I bought a $99 pack and it was missing items that were in the advertisement. I contacted support and they were useless? Do you have screenshots they said? Well no, no screenshots, NO help. I buy on impulse. Why take screenshots. Well now I learned. So I went back and looked at all the in game purchases for the last year for Stormfall and I feel like been cheated and stolen from. Be very careful when buying from them. Take many screenshots. Best of luck dealing with support!
Opportunity...
by JennaH82 on 2017/11/22 20:31
It is true that this is a free game and if you’re patient you don’t have to pay the in-app fees to improve your status. These game developers do not earn money by giving their games away without an option to fast track your castle with real money. I am only giving 3 stars because I think they’re overcharging to fast track. It’s a fun game though and I’m not overly competitive. You get more than what you pay for in this game (which is $0 to play) and they always make improvements!
Best I can give them...
by RiickyRicardo on 2018/09/08 14:42
Plarium make a decent game with good graphics, which is why I gave them 2 stars. BUT - the only new development they do is to add more “pay for” features. Bugs and requested enhancements are totally ignored. Customer Support is virtually non-existent unless you are a big spender. The big spenders are given extra perks to make them unbeatable, causing the games to be dominated by those that want to spend a lot of money on a game. It’s not fun anymore. By the, it should be noted that none of he graphics shown here are part of the game - they are for marketing only.
Losses
by Playerinfinity on 2018/09/01 21:08
I used to love this game. It was easy to understand. Today there was a new update. A Hunt, which allowed the player to send champions out automatically. Great idea. NOT REALLY. It allows the game to use up your gems and automatic refills unless you click a box. So each time, the game sends your champs out it actually uses up both the gems and your automatic refills. Why would you need the box? Only to scam players like me or others. I now hate this game. Each update makes it harder to progress and to keep advancing. Losing is not fun when you are gaming. Only winning counts. And this game sets you up for failure.
Latest update endless loop
by Kooskoos on 2018/12/05 15:30
After the latest update, the game thinks it’s not updated, so it sends me again to the App Store to update. This is very frustrating as I HAVE spent money on this game. Please fix this ! It seems I have issues of some sort after each update there is. And it seems more than just me are having this issue. (Tick tock, Christmas is around the corner and iTunes gift cards are always traded, people use these on other games if this one isn’t working) PLEASE FIX
Define Your Own Game
by Niedermeyer on 2018/08/12 12:00
I played this game for years, and spent almost no money except the occasional Christmas or birthday treat. I almost completely finished my castle, met a ton of great league members and “enemies,” and enjoyed the frequent updates. If you want to spend a bunch of money, help yourself, but it isn’t necessary for a rewarding experience. Have fun!
Great way to break up the day...but
by bdmccarthy on 2019/09/07 18:47
I haven’t had a solid connection in weeks. Spent over $70 last week for units and sapphires and couldn’t stay connected long enough (or even at all, like this afternoon) to use them effectively. Cannot contact game support because - oh that’s right - I cannot get into the game. Nice enough game but I’m not spending anymore money, and I don’t recommend anyone else spend money either.
Can’t login
by juju 👉👉 on 2020/08/29 22:20
So basically my phone broke and I got a new one. I went to sign in through Facebook but since I have two Facebook accounts I accidentally hit the wrong account. Now it won’t let me switch my Facebook or login into my other account please tell me how to fix this.
Don't do it!
by Ubiquitus on 2017/11/07 12:46
As a previous reviewer stated, Plarium did a total bait and switch to the players of this game. Baiting them into spending money to build up an aspect of the game, then later, making that aspect useless. Despite pages and pages of complaints on the forums, they refused to reverse their switch and would not even compromise. They only offered vague and nonsensical excuses for their actions and stated that the do not plan to change it. They are dishonest and don't care about the experience of the players. People play these games to be entertained, not robbed.
Incorrect statements by developers
by Jarhead975 on 2020/03/07 13:04
I have written a couple of times about my infant ray training issue, having the building at a level to get 3 full days of training on my main. However, I can only trian infantry for up to 2 days and 9 hours, not the full 3 days. Developers never responded or attempted to fix the issue. Also certain items are not rewarded in quest but can ONLY be purchased, making this more about money then entertainment
MOST AMAZING GAME OF ALL TIME!!!
by Dromadus on 2018/03/20 01:30
This game is so amazing. This is the game I’ve been playing for the last few years! It does require lots of time and effort or else you will be destroyed! So build up your castle and defense. Took me 2 years to get to level 50 and I would play it like 15 minutes a day!
Constantly broken
by L9fingers on 2019/09/07 17:36
I really enjoy this game and I’m cool with the constant evolution and need for new strategies. Lately the developers are really pushing more of a league level involvement with league brawls and champ tower events. With that said... this game is constantly breaking. Server updates and app updates are almost a daily occurrence and every update breaks the game. If this doesn’t improve I will leave the game. Many players have already moved on. It’s a shame.
Very deep gameplay, fun community, great app!
by thacrazynative on 2018/04/24 09:46
I have played for about a year or two now and its a very fun cellphone or tablet based strategy with PVP elements and lots of rewarding gameplay. Best advice find a good guild right away and don’t waste your resources on frivolous things and be careful how you send your offensive units. Great game!
Quick response to problem - fun game
by ThubanOne on 2017/11/28 12:46
This is for the developer: fix this! App just forced me to download the upgrade and could not then log in. OK, fast response (fixed by next day). Overall , very good game (playing for over two years)
Waste of time
by DiegoD. on 2018/05/26 04:55
In the beginning, you’ll spend a lot of time trying to build an army and level up but it’s pointless. You’ll end up getting attacked by super high level players over and over again. You’ll destroy your army trying to fight back and you’ll start from square one all over again. The option to buy troops and sapphires becomes the only REAL way to progress in this ruthless PvP game. Do yourself a favor, find a new game, and cut your losses.
Used to be good
by cberline on 2018/12/08 13:58
After the last update the gameplay has gone down rapidly. We have nothing to look forward to do. This game has just got boring. We use to be able to build toward something. Now forts are gone. Beacons are gone. You have gone from active players to inactive in weeks. You can’t even fix the correct screen sizes, and blinking chat. Millions of dollars for developers to fix easy things. All Stormfall wants and cares about now is $$$.
How is game play.
by STRANGER_909 on 2017/11/17 08:48
free to play is a bunch of bull. You have to spend to have fun or keep getting smashed. I have no problem spending, I played game of war for 4 1/2 years but developers got greedy and were coming out with multiple updates every week. You literally had to spend 100’s every month. I finally quit. I’ll spend to keep up with updates and have fun, but how often are they coming out with new things where you ha e to spend?
Downhill quick.
by kashikhan on 2019/08/24 00:20
This game used to be great. Now it is plagued with pay to win features that make moderate coiners and non coiners irrelevant and horrible updates that glitch out the whole game and make it unplayable for everyone. If you like being kicked from game constantly on any platform or not being able to log in for days and even weeks at a time, this is the game for you.

by bebohkh on 2019/05/27 12:58
I have been playing this game 3 years now i do like the updates but things go fast i cant cop up same speed i think newbies will be so disappointed and leave abandoned castle all times this game is to grow not to start as a new player I suggest to keep it this way for a while thanks for reading... THOR...LYL league
Show them the money!!!!
by Kevinlkaiser on 2019/12/10 23:13
So when almost all of the in game purchases cost $100 USD then you can see the rater below was calling the developer out correctly. This game use to be fun but unless you are an oil Barron then I don’t see how one could afford to play. To respond that you don’t need money is incorrect. You need to buy sketches to progress past a certain point and those cost cash money to make any reasonable/ marginal progress in the game.
Super Game
by Hargate on 2017/11/22 23:05
Lot's of fun to play. Good community of gamers. A little pricey unless you want to advance really slowly. Last upgrade on 11/22 was bad. Sent out one Raid, should have received 50k rss, got 0. Don’t know what Plarium does for QA, but it sure could be better!
Update.
by Vehsia on 2018/08/07 22:05
So not impressed with the latest update. Looking for new game to play. Why is it nobody listens to the little players that don’t have any monies. I understand spending money in game. That’s not the issue. Everybody’s opinions need to be listened too.
I am stopped in game
by m123543 on 2020/10/17 13:40
Because sapphires have stopped coming in even after me completing the tasks that get sapphires for past 2 days been playing game for weeks. A developer did respond as I noticed they fixed the sapphires glitch, thanks

Love the game
by Fusilier h on 2020/10/14 20:54
Love the game but when are you going to put the other games where you can get them on your tablet as I miss playing soldiers inc and sparta game as I no longer have a pc or laptop
Still my favorite game
by Richk097 on 2019/12/06 11:14
Contrary to other posts, I have found that you don’t need to spend any money to be competitive here. This is still the only game I play everyday.
Upset.
by Blueyedangel60 on 2018/03/05 21:46
I just updated the game and can’t log in. I tried to get help but apparently they are not helping anyone right now. I can’t get through there either :-(,,,
Excellent
by barkman 74 on 2017/12/24 01:54
I really enjoy this game I have played this game for about three years now and it never gets boring thanks for making it!!
Glitch in Shrine of Summoning
by LebruuuuuunJames on 2018/06/08 19:49
Although this game is great and fun to play, this game has a major glitch in the shrine of summoning because I'll send one of my champions out and then they won't get sent out but the game will still end up taking my energy points away even though no champion was used 😡 also the xp points don't accumulate accurately when there is a tournament for champions xp
Really great
by Kyfamily on 2019/12/05 20:16
I think this was great I think that there needs to be a faster training time on troops though that’s the only bad thing
Still a scam
by NikeWolf777 on 2019/03/09 15:25
Nothing but servers with people who been playing for years and have 50 accounts and it’s so obvious this game is only here to steal your money and empower Russia. These battle reports favor the Russian worse than any game I have played. You can attack level 30 bases and lose more power of their Russian but not of their Russian bigs attack you. Plarium scam artist Jew company
Going downhill fast
by DonDayla on 2019/02/05 18:23
This game is getting harder to play with every “update”. You can’t do anything without the game freezing. Stop issuing updates that do nothing but make the game harder to play. Champs freeze, daily quests freeze, raiding freeze, stone heart trails freeze. Please fix all the bugs before you have no players left.
