  • Castle age is rubbish

    I'm sorry I'm sure it took alot of work but compared to UE it doesn't even come close. It's extremely laggy, very slow waiting times, UI looks horrid, chat system sucks ect... Surely this can be improved to the UE standard, as it is now it is barely playable. I don't understand why people like it? ( p.s this post is not meant to offend or troll, please give feedback)

    Jook.. Some of it is hard to correct... Unlike ue castle age has a Facebook version not just a Facebook log in... And that's where the lag and delay comes from... You have to deal with 2 different servers on castle age while here at ue we have 1

    And coupled that with the player base.. 20mill downloads... That's excluding the Facebook only accounts

      it just isn't as good as UE. it is so boring and repetitive, the interface is slightly better but overall it isn't very good. almost every boss you join is a speed kill, an unreal number of dead empires, achievements are weak. blah blah blah
      Yup exactly... Why here in ue we have the random heal in hospital. There are some benefits that castle age has that we don't. It would be nice to see them over here as well

        I hope they come through with this so called "3rd game". Fresh starts are always nice.

          You also have to keep in mind that Castle Age was developed specifically for Social Media websites, the iOS app came much later. I know nothing about development but i can see how that would make for a very difficult transition.
          On the game itself i quit a while back, i played for about 2 years on FB, then quit when it got to the point where it was near impossible to kill a monster without 2 or 3 "hunters". I did start again on the iPhone and was getting more and more involved and then one day i read in chat someone say "hit 5 next" (there are only 4 towers in CA), after i few questions i learned of UE and that was the end of my Castle Age days. I've tried to go back a few times but keeping up with everything is impossible, monsters, conquest, collections, the General/Hero system is confusing, Festival battles, facebook only battles, not to mention all the different battle types (some FB specific) i threw in the towel lol.

            Re: Castle age is rubbish

            I am level 200 on Castle age or so and play it when i can just for the heck of it... it has to be one of the worst games i ever played, very buggy (yes, even more than UE) and even though the theme concept is fine, there is nothing to that game but levelling up meaninglessly...The empire wars in that game sucks... I fear that UE may not get the attention once a new game is released.. I am not sure if that is what happened with Castle Age too..

              Re: Castle age is rubbish

              I have 4 castle age accounts...

              One is level 900

              The other three are about 195 give or take...

              The 900 is built like my ue toon...

              One of the small accounts is pure attack (literally only has 1 defense)
              Another is pure defense
              And the last is pure hp.

              I mention this so that yall are aware and understand exactly what I say. Ogre is right iOS app was an after thought. Castle age is so huge that pa had to/decided to split it up into a second game...

              Castle age:heart of darkness.. If what we said doesn't explain the lag spikes and what not what I say next will... It is pure genius something that I haven't seen done before by anyone

              CA and CA:HOD have a shared "boss" and I don't mean shared as in they both have the same boss available... I mean shared that if I summon this boss in CA I need CA:HOD players to kill it..

              Thanatos - fire and ice...
              He has a fire form which is the CA side of the boss... After fire is killed the CA:HOD players must kill the ice side in a smaller time frame than the boss has left or the boss regenerates...

              That said you're dealing with 3 servers not to mention 2 large player bases and 2 differently coded games (CA:HOD is flash I believe while CA is not) and your internets connection to server.

                Believe it or not Castle Age has flurished even since UE has been released. There have been just as many updates, if not more for that game. Keep in mind that the game has been running strong for 4-6 years and already has a solid foundation. The employees know the game inside an out and are likely the same people that have been working on it through the years. UE is still fresh, probably a lot of new hires working on it as they expanded, it will continue to grow and get better with time. I think Castle Age is a good game if you stick with it but for someone starting out or coming back to it, it is very hard to get into a groove or compete.

                I forgot about Heart of Darkness VJ, i loved it when it was released but nothing changed on it for a while and when i got the iPhone i pretty well abandoned web based games. I may have to go revisit that one.

                  CA: HoD has been abandoned. There's nothing to revisit. Almost 2 years with no updates.

                    the castle age app was fine until the last update. lots of freezing and stuttering, but the game itself is great. there are a lot more features than underworld empire

                      I'd deal with that if their was a facebook verison I could definitely get people to play then.
