Always wanted to test your strategic skills against players around the world? Not a problem, but if you want an epic battle, first you need to build an epic army.

There’s no better feeling than crushing other players’ castles; especially when there’s an enormous army that has your back. Craft powerful weapons, train countless different soldiers, fortify castle walls and you’ll always be ready for a good fight.

Proving your strength in real-time strategy games is highly satisfying. But there’s always that one player who’s stronger and you wish you had a more powerful monster at your side or even better; a powerful friend.
