The Constant Struggle For Power

In a battle where each individual fights for himself, there is a high chance of a strong hierarchy to come into existence as the strongest individual stays on top of the chain. However, the dynamics of power change drastically when equally strong teams oppose each other specially when there are more than two of them. If you have read Lord of the Rings, watched Game of Thrones, you might have a fair idea about the constant struggle for power.

It is often said that man’s greatest lust is power. It is unfortunate that power is not a tangible asset that one could keep as desired. It is not something that you once acquire; you don’t have to work for it anymore. Instead, power demands constant struggle. This struggle requires physical resources as well as intellectual and strategic expertise. The party that makes the best use of all their resources is most likely to succeed but as soon as they let their guard down, someone else will snatch the throne.

Such is the scenario in the war strategy game ‘5-Empires’. While there are many online multiplayer strategy games, the battle scenarios portrayed in this game were previously found on gaming consoles only. Moreover, there is only so much that one can program. This means that in all the single player free online mmorpg no download that you might have played, there might have been many constants and a few variables. The pattern of those variables is pre-defined so you could predict the outcome of every step. In this war strategy game, the variables are infinite and they are as spontaneous and random as they could be. This is because online multiplayer games are simultaneously played by numerous users across the globe. The actions of each player make a difference to the overall outcome in the game.

In ‘5-Empires’, you could be part of any of the five but only one will be the hold true power. Since, the game is played between more than two opponents, you can allies as well as enemies. Even though if you make an ally, they would eventually turn into an enemy as the ultimate goal for everyone is to get to the highest level of power. The struggle naturally stays constant as there might be two or more enemies against you. When you get to the top of the chain, every empire would want power for itself. The players that you play with would actually try to deceive you. This is as real as it gets. Once you start playing this free game, your struggle starts and continues.
