My game is bugged

I do not get credit for any of the achievements. I asked the community at large if they are having similar issues and they said no. I deleted and reloaded the game, played on a second device and even started a new account after 2 weeks of playing. Nothing that I did had any effect. I sent many emails over a 30 day period and customer service did not respond once.

The epic battles take 30 minutes to an hour to find a match even with a friend sitting next to me also waiting. I can’t sit around all day waiting for this, so that is a function a rarely use. If you keep current with your mine upgrades you will produce enough resources that you’ll rarely have to wait for them to replenish. Especially with later upgrades taking so long to finish. With me not getting credit for plundering I have no motivation to use that function. This leaves me with 2/3 the game being useless.

These thing make me sad. This game had such potential to be great if only they would respond to emails, fix bugs and make minor changes to how they match people in epic battles. The idea of live real time pvp against a human and not a stupid AI sounded very exciting.

I’m glad I did not spend money on this game. Hopefully if you choose to play you will have a better experience.


Best Egypt game of our time

This game is no less of brilliant it is one of my favorite apps and my entire family plays it its so cute and fun and a game that finally honors the ancient Egyptians my favorite ancient civilization it also has funny remarks and isn’t just another city builder it’s like plants vs zombies and a empire builder with full scale online multiplayer PLZ check it out you would be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t at least try this wonderful masterpiece

Love This Game

This is an amazing game. I like that you have to change how you play depending on the level, it’s not just about maxing everything out. My only issues with the game are that it takes several times to get the game to work, and that I don’t ever get an opponent for Epic Battle Matches, I can wait forever and I’m never matched with an opponent. Still, I love playing the game anyway.
