Unethical Game Developers & Money Grabbing Game

This is a game that you PAY to win - which personally, I don't have a problem. But after spending nearly $10,000 on this game but being treated with indifference, with a "I-don't-give-a-dam" to their customer service and their copy/paste responses when you ask for a refund - I have decided to write this feedback. BIGGEST REASON? They have unethical methods and means of cheating you of your money by having 'secret' tiers where they advertise (misleading) that you can get a particular artifact or power or upgrade. However AFTER you spend 1, 2, 3, 4, levels higher (which the cost keeps increasing) to reach that elusive prize or upgrade you are made to realize you have to spend $$$ 4 to 5 times on something YOU DO NOT WANT OR NEED compulsorily. And ONLY and ONLY after you purchase this unwanted purchase which they make you buy 3 to 5 times - then and only then you get the final purchase. Misleading game & unethical sales practices with one of the most indifferent & "I-don't-care" responses. This game & developer should seriously shut down and I hope some competitor comes out soon to drive them to bankruptcy. LM

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

For fans of this type of game, the graphics and historical elements might be enough to satisfy, but the pay-or-wait model is frustrating to many. If you can work around frustration over either having to spend money or wait patiently for structures to be built and soldiers trained, this is an immersive gaming experience that pulls elements from the best of similar titles, has spectacular visual appeal, and has enough variation to keep age-appropriate players invested for a long time. However, it's critical to talk to your teen about whether or not purchases are OK and whether they're allowed to play in a league, using the chat feature.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
