I have recently started playing an MMO (basically, an online game) called Tribal Wars. InnoGames is the company that made this online game. They are also the developer behind another online game called The West, I tried. It’s not the best game ever. By the looks of their web page they are a German company, but also have an English version of their games.
The goal of Tribal Wars is to get loads of troops, get loads of points or be the best in your World. A world is a server, at the moment there are 31 worlds. From that, I can deduct that it’s a popular game. You can get points by building buildings in your village.
You start the game with: Village Headquarters; which is where you control the construction and level of all your buildings in your village, Warehouse; this is where you store your resources: wood, clay and iron. The bigger your warehouse the more resources you can hold.
There are also a timber camp, clay pit and iron mine where you get your resources; the higher level you upgrade them to, the more resources you get an hour.
As you get more wood, clay and iron you can upgrade your buildings and then build new buildings such as a Smithy where you can research new types of troops. When you build buildings you get some points from it, the more points you get the higher rank you are on the leader boards.
At the moment I am still 20th in my continent. A continent is an area in a server which is about 20-60 squares by 20-60 squares. Each square contains around 11 villages. When you have a great village you can build an academy which produces Nobles which can conquer other player villages and take their village as your own. Then you have 2 villages, and start again, but keep your 1st village.
In the Barracks you can build troops which you can send out to other villages to ask to borrow their resources…
No. You steal them and use them for yourself. However if someone else tries to nick your resources while you have troops in your village, your troops will fight their troops and maybe even wipe a couple out, resulting in the enemy not being able to take as many resources.
You can also join a tribe, which is a group of players with similar interests. A tribe builds relations with other tribes and make Allies and Enemies. Hence the name Tribal Wars. So far I haven’t been involved in a “tribe war,” but I’m looking forward to one.
Overall I think Tribal Wars is a great game. All that could be improved is the interface which is a bit messy. So I hope they organize it soon. That doesn’t put me off though. I play it every day.
