The Beta is now live! You can register at SHK's home page. The old Alpha accounts were deleted so even if you were registered before, you'll have to make a new account. But don't let that stop you - the registering process is quick and simple. If you're playing the game you should also visit SHK's official forums. Remember the game is still in Beta, so your feedback will be very helpful for FF. So, who's playing? I'll be joining the party this weekend.

This thread has been made for everyone to discuss the Beta version of the game. I have contacted Darren and he has given us the green light on posting screenies! Time to show off some castles, people!

See you guys in the Kingdom

It has been slow progress compared to Alpha 4 (or it seems that way)

Yeah, I'm taking part again as well. Doing very relaxed and on the side.
slow progress
Indeed FF strectched out the gameplay compared to the Alphas to have Kingdoms a casual game. Higher gold costs (of Decoratives, Bribes, Research Points, perhaps of Banquet buildings), bigger increase of building time.
show off some castle
and villages.

Beta Tag 7

The comprehensive development requires lots of thinking as Research points and resources are limited. I go for Farming this time. But still can serve only 2 food types on the x4 rations level because the productivity of the Pig farms has not been upgraded high enough yet.

To new players, I'd recommend to max Tools and Arts first.

Solutions to the screen above:

- Had captured an inactive village. Made a stand with the tiny castle against a Final attack of the Enemy siege camp.
- Unbuilt walls, guard houses and wooden gate houses help storing materials before converting the village type.


Another must-post from a neighbour player:
You don't know how I can found any user on map? Tonight one user with name Rat was attack my village and I want found him, but strange what not declare name of village this user.
Close observation: Rat does not have a village ...

Here's a video of some battle reports player vs. player.

Much could be said commenting.
RocesGA knows how to use catapults. He aims them onto the same spot.
The castles all have lousy centres. They lack a stone square around the Keep.

He used a lot of swordsmen. It must have cost a lot to hire those armies. Maybe could have had more archers in them?

What do folks think of the Glory screen and points since it has been introduced?

Has it affected how players are playing do you think?

The question being raised long ago stayed in my mind.
Overall, the Glory races (2nd round now) worked as an overall horizon of motivation.
Some neutral, not House-related players in Steward position got under pressure and complained about not being able to play for themselves.
But on the other hand, many lower ranked players unfolded dynamics and took new villages in new territories to take over the parishes.

So, the game obviously has not lost attraction, just the hectic of starting up from scratch is over. Lots of wars are going on.
