Champions of Olympia Guide in ROK

Champions of Olympia Guide in ROK

Champions of Olympia is a new team-based strategy game mode where two teams will fight to occupy towers and hold them, which will grant them points. Each team has 5 players that can use 3 sets of troops and has 4 skills. Each game is 10 min long and to win you must get as many points as you can in that time.

If you do not see this event it will come in a few days. Currently, Champions of Olympia is available on few kingdoms for testing and polishing.

Champions of Olympia Matchmaking 

You can join a random team or you can invite your friends and alliance members. Currently, there is no ranking system and matching based on power and commanders but probably it will come in the future. 

Commanders and troops 

You can use only Commanders that you have. So choose the best commanders that you have. Also, troops that you get with commanders are chosen by the game. If you pick Richard you will get infantry, El Cid you will get archers, Boudica you will get siege units, etc. 

Amount troops that you will get are based on talent tree, your VIP level, level of your city hall 

Skills

There is a nice amount of different skills that you can choose and much more is coming. From the pool of skills, you can choose 4 that you will use in the Champions of Olympia match. Now what skills are the best depends on what troops are you using and playstyle. 

Currently, there is a bravery branch and Wisdom Swiftness and Shadow is coming soon. 

In the bravery branch we have

Champions of Olympia Map

Each team has its own base where they will spawn. On the map, there are 5 flags that players can occupy. One flag is in front red base, one is in a front blue base. We have left and right flags and one is in the middle. Also, there will be a circle if you occupy the flag where you will be able to heal your troops.

Rewards Champions of Olympia

To win all rewards you have to win 3 matches. In total, you can get 6 purple materials and 1 day of speedups. Overall not bad rewards.

My opinion

Champions of Olympia is a great game mode in Rise Of kingdoms and finally, we have something different. There is a lot of room for players to choose their playstyle, develop strategy, what commanders and skills they will use, etc.

It is fun especially if you play with your friends. it is not time-consuming and that is great.

Few things need to be fixed as soon as possible and that is bad matchmaking. You will get matched with random people that have random commanders so the enemy team can be too powerful. They need to implement a ranking system to make things more interesting.

Also, they have to add a penalty for people who leave matches. Champions of Olympia have a lot of potentials to be great and to make it on the e-sports scene but they need to work on it hard.
