    I totally understand that they're in beta testing phase... but they are taking people's money and so I think everyone expects the game, at the least, to be fair.

    But it's very clear to many people playing that unless you're an old friend of Gordy's, who (surprise, surprise) looks after the game server databases, then you don't have a chance of competing. I don't know whether he's deliberately rigging the game for his pals or else that he's not punishing them for using hidden exploits, but it stinks either way, and makes the game pointless for the rest of us.

    cotg could honestly have been alright. I mean it looks pretty terrible (come back 1998, your lowrez gifs are forgiven!) and it's frustratingly buggy (don't take my word for it, see the cotg forums for details of random security certificate errors, disconnects, login issues, and if I hear the devs/mods say "clear your cookies" or my personal favorite "turn off hardware acceleration in chrome" one more time, I'll scream)... but it still had a flavor (although a pretty mild one, at best) of LoU.

    However, the fastest way to wreck your own game is letting the developers cheat/help their friends while taking cash from the general public - there's no way to fix that reputation once it takes hold.

    Before anyone suggests I'm saying this because I'm a "bitter loser"... I started playing more than halfway through the fixed-length W01, so I knew I had no way to compete anyway, and didn't even try. I was just there to see how it compared to LoU, and whether it would be worth playing fresh after the next reset. I ran into a number of other dissatisfied players who had been there from the moment the server opened who were happy to shed some light on all the "strange" goings-on that I was seeing with my own eyes.

    Maybe they'll fix it, maybe they won't. It's been months now, and it's it's been totally ruined by cheats.

    Don't take my word for it, read their own forums.

    A pity 🙁

      Bitter loser, oh yeah, just that, nothing more. The game is great, and is really free unlike the many other "freemium games"
      No cheating just skill, my man.

      The game is terrible. It is unfair, no matter what they claim. They do not ban cheaters. They give small penalties that mean nothing to the alliance. Emma knows what she is talking about. I played LoU for years. This game is terrible.

    BTW - The graphics on this COTG review at mmos.com are way out of date. The graphics are a lot more sophisticated now. I have to say this game has been the most addicting experience in my life. Thank you to the creators at Gaming Addict Studios for an intense 2 years of development.

    COTG is much better than LOU ever was. The game inspires passion which is why you get so many varied viewpoints. Currently you can try the game for free and you never need to spend a dime to do it. The strategy is so deep it takes 10 years to master this game, but like chess it’s easy to learn.
    Play as hard or as easy as you want.
