Lords Mobile is a video game developed and published by IGG, and is available to download on Android, iOS, and Steam. The game is free to play and offers in-app purchases. According to App Annie, the game is one of the top grossing apps (strategy) on the App Store (iOS) and Google Play. The official description of the game states that it has more than 200 million players around the world.
In 2016, Lords Mobile won the Google Play Awards for "Best Competitive Game", and in 2017 it was nominated for "Best Multiplayer Game" and called "Android Excellence Game" by Google.
The game combines role-playing, real-time strategy and world-building mechanics. Its gameplay consists of several game modes, the most notable of which are PVP-battles. Players develop their own base and build an army in order to attack enemy bases, destroy them, seize resources and capture enemy leaders. Usually, players can attack only enemies from their own kingdom, but during the Kingdom War (KvK), all servers (excluding new servers) are opened for attacks. Players can attack monsters and other world bosses (Darknests) that periodically appear on the kingdom map in order to claim resources from them. In addition to the usual attacks, players can participate in contests, the purpose of which is to capture a location on the map, earning bonuses either for themselves or the guild that they are a part of.
The game also has several additional gameplay modes:
Attacks and defenses in the game require developed tactical and strategic thinking. The player should not only know which heroes to take into battle, what equipment to wear, but also be able to make quick decisions that are correlated with the current situation. Capturing locations (e.g. Wonders) requires in many respects the coordinated action of several players of one guild.
Players can join or create guilds in order to collaborate with other players regardless of location. Guildmates are able to assist their allies with build time and research time. They can also earn rewards for their allies by defeating world monsters and making in-game purchases. Each guild has a leader (R5) who can assign the ranking and positions of the guild members. Guilds will have R4s whose duties vary depending on the guild, but typically involve deleting guild fest quests and allowing a member's alternative account in and out of the guild.
Guild Fest is a recurring event that takes place shortly after Kingdom versus Kingdom. During the week-long event, players select various quests to complete ranging from gathering resources off from tiles, gaining several 19+ level essences from darknests (this should only be selected if they are a T3 player with no chance of ever being able to actually help win the nest), training troops, and completing Hell Events. During Guild Fest, players are held captive by their guild for fear of failing a quest by leaving the guild. Guilds may also threaten to kick members out of the guild if they do not achieve a certain number of points during the event, sending numerous passive-aggressive guild messages if the guild is not achieving the ranking the guild desires. Ultimately, the guild will be awarded prizes for their participation in Guild Fest. However, the monetary value of these free rewards does not correlate to the amount of money players likely had to spend in order to achieve their minimum required score.
Lords Mobile features over 45 characters known as Heroes. They are divided into three types: Intelligent, Strong, Agile. All Heroes are unique with different skills, attributes, designs, and backgrounds. The strategy of the game assumes the need to improve these characters. Additional Heroes are available through in-game purchase bundles while the game's launch Heroes are all available by completing Hero Stages.
