To get everything max in Rise of Kingdoms you will need to have patience and time.
So if you are beginner you have to know few tips and tricks.
Check this guide on how to get tier 5 faster. It’s for more advanced players but make sure to check it out. It will help you drastically, you can learn a lot of new things that you do not know.
Yes, Rise Of Kingdoms is pay to win game like every mobile game. People are spending an insane amount of money in Rise of Kingdoms. They will have a big advantage over you. BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU SHOULD NOT PLAY RISE OF KINGDOMS.
When Rise of Kingdoms was first released there was no Kingdom vs Kingdom or Arc of Osiris. Every kingdom was in a big mess, a whole alliance would get zeroed overnight by some big spender. Today it’s a different story when we have Kingdom vs Kingdom.
Now all alliances in Kingdom work together to destroy other kingdoms in KVK. Everyone is friendly and you will be able to grow and farm as much you want.
Every kingdom haves a big spender but now that big spender will help and protect every free to play player, he will buy gold chest etc. Big spender can not win KVK alone so they need help from free to play players and smaller spenders.
But the most important reason why you should play Rise of Kingdoms is a community. Everyone is friendly in the kingdom and willing to help you. At any time of day when you log in, there will be someone who is willing to talk.
You will see how Rise of Kingdoms is a community-based game and that you will have a lot of fun.
As a player who played every possible mobile game, Rise of Kingdom has the best balance between pay to win and free to play and only game that listens to community and feedback. Start playing Rise Of Kingdoms you will not regret it.
If you are just starting with the new Rise of Kingdoms account my advice is to start on a new brand kingdom. You will be all on the same level as other people.
New kingdoms have an event called Rise of Kingdoms that is for brand new kingdoms. It will help you a lot.
If You want to have some starting advantage you can make a jumper account. For that, you can check the jumper account guide.
One more thing is that if you do not like the kingdom/server that you are in, you can migrate to another. All you need is to get is passport pages.
The first thing to mention is that civilization will not make a huge difference in the game but it will help you.
I would recommend Spain. Spain is great for new players. With France, you will get Joan Of Arc that is one of the best epic commanders in the game. Also, she is one of the best gathering commanders. Gathering commanders at the start will help you a lot to get your resources.
If you do not like France you can choose Britain or Spain.
You can always change civilization later if you do not like it.
In Rising of Kingdoms it’s hard to say what commander is the best. Every commander has some kind of role. You can check the commander tier list to see what is the best commander but the tier list is only for late game.
Now there is a legendary commander that every free to play can get and that is Aethelflaed. With time you will max here with the expedition.
Do not use universal sculpture in gathering commanders like Cleopatra. It is not worth it.
