Exhibit Your Power In A Graphical Battle Ground

If you are into war strategy games or battle strategy games, then 5 empires is definitely one to try out. It is a free online mmorpg, no download required. Being free browser based game, not only is it free but very captivating.  It accommodates multi-player capability and has its own lore and set of creatures that will keep you addicted to it.

The game centers around the fact that when the realm of the game was created, the absolute power was divided amongst five regions of the empire. It was the use or abuse of power which led to the shaping of the essence of these creatures. Some became wise, some aggressive, some strong while some became sentient and nomadic.

The five regions are governed by one out of five spirits each. These spirits are called ‘influences’ in the game. They are named Ignis, Terra, Aqua, Umbra and Lucis. The spirits need to co-exist but there is a constant tug-of-war for power, and that is what the game 5 empires is all about. Allegiances are made and broken; wars are fought and empires rise or fall, all based on the capability of the player.

The graphical simulation in the game is pretty impressive. Each region has its own graphic personality which binds the player to the game.

Let us now look at the influences. Terra is the only sister of the five. She is kind and cherishes growth, but is very hot-headed and may claim what’s hers by force. She is favored by Lucis and Ignis, while rivaled by Aqua and Umbra. Her creatures are predatory and powerful.

Ignis, the youngest is made of fire, making him very passionate but mostly just angry. He is impulsive and unpredictable, thereby promoting freedom and emotion. Creatures born in this region are dangerous and war-crazy. Favored by Terra and Umbra, Ignis is rivaled by Aqua and Lucis.

Umbra is the offspring of the dark. He reeks of evil, pessimism, suffering and even death. He will go to any and all bounds to defend what’s his. Its offspring are nefarious under the guise of darkness.

Aqua is destructively intelligent. His power is knowledge and is very swift with his thinking. Its creatures are swift, shrewd and deceptive.

Lucis, the eldest, is the protector of all. He maintains order and justice, and will do anything to punish any wrong-doer.

Video Games- A Passion Or A Pass Time?

People spend their lives playing video games, with their moms rattling the bedroom door, urging they go outside for some fresh air. But nobody wants to kick around a ball and get in line to become the toughest kid on the block. No, it is much saner to spend hours in front of the screen flicking away on the controller and screaming at Solid Snake to stop aging so fast.

Tired Of Playing The Same Thing Again And Again

A lot of gamers say that the most common thing they are asked is when they’d finally get over the same sort of games. Here is the thing, sequels to games are more of the same thing but nobody’s demanding innovation. It’s what hooks gamers in the first place. Nobody wants a hack and slash first person game play to turn into a role playing stealth game.

A Waste Of Time

For many gaming is a constructive spending of the time. If you ask them they will dish out a list of all its productive benefits in between game levels. It is surprising thing but there are certain rare former gamers who now think of gaming as a waste of time. As if there was such a thing. A separate breed for sure, adulthood does strange things to people; their fear stems from the fact that once they activate a gaming console they shall turn towards the dark side, and the tempting gaming world will leave them hunched and neglectful towards everyday duties like laundry, spouse, children, food, job!

Gaming Is A Passion

Back to the gamers who love gaming and the many aspects that it offers. For a lot of gamers, gaming has this power to quench the thirst of exploration; for some it’s the everyday amusement gained from competition that goes for them; then there is the challenge that drives the gamers to the vestiges of their battle strategy intelligence and come out of it victorious; online multiplayer strategy games like the battle strategy games have their own patented high for the gamers, where you can become someone you are not in real life and experience their challenges and work to achieve an entirely different set of exciting goals that are never present in real life.  

Playing video games is a passion for some people and quality past time for others. Different people enjoy it in different ways. For some it’s a way to kill time on a rainy day, for others it’s a great way to catch up with an old friend but for the most of us it is the best form of entertainment anything can offer.

Build An Empire, Summon An Army, And Begin A Conquest For Power

I played the war strategy game 5 empires and came out of the experience somewhat rattled. At first I thought it would be like any other war strategy game and was prepared with the same knowledge that I have based on older online pc games.

5 empires is not like the other video games. I felt it fair to warn you. This relatively new game is starting off from fairly decent stages in its game play. Makes you think how it will go on to develop once it experiences intense internet traffic like some other war strategy games online. There are four primary resources that every gamer is provided: Gold, Mana, Turns and the taxpayers in your kingdom. The utilization in the game is fairly simple.

•    Gold maintains your war creatures and buildings and is the only way you can buy heroes.

•    Your Mana reserve lets you accumulate more income and upkeep your heroes’ armory. It strangely collects from the prayers of your monks.

•    The Taxpayers in your kingdom will provide with another source of gold. The more people decide to join your kingdom the more tax you will get to create buildings.

•    Turns are generated every 5 minutes you are active in the game. This allows you to not waste your moves.

In the beginning of your gaming journey you start out by exploring a few buildings. The best thing that I found to do was going around a couple of Turns do that the game gives you some free land to start building your kingdom on. I recommend doing this before you go on to learn a couple of spells you can battle with. The fun begins when you use your magic to summon up creatures and heroes to fight your battles.

One thing that might initially strike many gamers as a glitch in the game is the limited hero rule. Gamers cannot summon up a bunch of the same kind of heroes from the 5 elemental realms. Namely Terra, Ignis, Umbra, Aqua and Lucis. That is why the game requires that you fill all 5 units before engaging in battle. Moreover you get to raid other kingdoms only twice during your 24 hours into the game. Don’t get this wrong, every war is designed along the rules of a best 3 out of 5 battles. 

Though at first the game experienced certain play glitches in the system, 5 empires is the strangely addictive and amusing role playing game. Allegedly soon releasing an improved game play, it is no less than the hack and slash one expects out of a good war strategy game.
