War and Order Gameplay – Beyond the Basics
In the previous War and Order review I introduced you to the mobile strategy game. There I discussed getting started and what there is to do in the game. This post will be about War and Order gameplay. I will discuss what the game is like at a higher level and what makes it so interesting.
War and Order Gameplay – Beyond Level 10
When I started out it was on a new realm and I had no idea what I was doing. I was enjoying the gameplay though, and that alone was enough to keep my interest. After joining a small alliance and learning the basics I knew I could do better. I started my own alliance and within a week I had a solid team of players that I was leveling with.
I told you that story because again, the social aspect in War and Order gameplay is what makes this game so much fun. When you are part of a solid team you end up with what I would compare to as a virtual family. You watch each others backs and help each other out.
It is after reaching a castle level of 10 that the game really starts to pick up the pace and get more interesting.
What happens in War and Order after level 10?
Upon reaching castle level 10 you are able to start recruiting a defensive troop from your castle wall known as Defense Golems. These golems help aid in defending your castle and they add a great deal to your power level. They look pretty cool too.
Stone Collection and Production
Another thing you can do after level 10 is stone collection. You won’t need a ton of stone to begin with at level 10 in War and Order. You will need it in great numbers at even higher levels, so you will want to use it sparingly. Stone collection also helps you get points during gather events which will reward you with boosts and gems as you rank.
You also get to build stone mines inside your castle walls which lets you produce stone on a regular basis.
You unlock a stronger set of troops at level 10. This set of troops will be your first group of heavy fighting troops. The troops below this number are ok for fighting small or empty castles. When you decide to start attacking bigger targets and going to war you want better troops. The War and Order gameplay strategies for battle will always favor the stronger troops (as in most any game).
If you combine your new troops with those of your alliance and do stack attacks or timed attacks you will become a real force to be reckoned with. You can even take out level 11, 12, or 13 castles. It depends on your troop count and type versus the enemy.
My Thoughts on the Game
I have explained War and Order gameplay without really critiquing anything. I want to give you my thoughts on the good and bad of the game now.
There are to many good things about this game to list, I could write for hours about it all. I could tell you stories of my own adventures. I will leave you with a quick list of some of the bigger highlights of War and Order.
- Social atmosphere
- Lots of stuff to do
- Easy to recover losses until level 22
- Special currency (Gems) easy to obtain without spending real money
- Lots of troop types make for unique battles
- Massive wars (up to 10 million troop battles or more)
- They update the game with new content on a regular basis
- You can have multiple accounts on the same or different realms.
War and Order is a great game overall. There are still a few little bugs that I feel need work. One of the bugs in the chat system. It gets lags on several different devices. It is not enough to ruin the game, but can be annoying at times.
There are times when you will get attacked and lose some troops. It can be very frustrating, but should not discourage you from the game. It is part of War and Order gameplay to favor the defending side versus the attacker. With that in mind, you cannot lose your entire army if you are attacked. You can lose your entire army if you are the attacker. With some smart and strategic gameplay you can take measures to minimize all losses.
A guide is being written on the subject of minimizing troop losses and how to hide your troops in War and Order. Sign up for our newsletter and be the first to know when it is out.
This article is designed to explain War and Order gameplay and help you decide if this game is for you. I recommend that you try it and get past level 10. It is after level 10 that you will really start seeing the new things the game has to offer.
I know if you give it an honest try you will enjoy it. You get to enter into a world with other players that all have one common goal in mind. That goal is to survive and grow. Each alliance has its own goal and those goals help shape the direction that your realm goes. The shape of the environment and realm is up to the players. That is what makes the War and Order gameplay so interesting and unique.
