Lordz.io is an awesome and addicting little RTS game that focuses on strategic tactical gameplay.
As with all the other popular .io games, Lordz runs straight in your browser requiring no downloads or emulators. You can literally jump right into a game within seconds!
The game takes place with you building up an army and controlling them to defeat your opponents. You can forge alliances with other players and work together to defeat your common enemy. It’s not to be taken too seriously because the game does have a touch of humor to it.
Although, even with all the comical nonsense, the game is still very deep in terms of strategy.
You’ll build up a huge group of soldiers (like literal dozens of them) and also build up a civilization. It takes place in medieval times so you’ll be harvesting gold in order to expand your base. You can build houses, mage towers, and even archery towers to defend your base.
The gold mines are your only source of currency and must be built upon gold deposits you find scattered all over the map. The more you have, the faster gold income you get. This means faster army output, which is key to winning the war!
The gold deposits aren’t just lying around though. They’re often occupied by other players already so you need to take over them by using brute force. Establish your army and amass a huge group of soldiers and then attack a gold mine to capture it.
After you take over it, it becomes yours and you need to defend it. Obviously, the more mines you own the faster your income. But you need to then defend all of them and spend soldiers to defend each one.
If you join a game where the mines are already all taken, you can also get income by just collecting the loot scattered around the map and also by killing enemy units!
The gold income is key. Use it to build more units or expand your base. You start off with weak soldiers that are easily killed and are pretty much used as fodder early on.
If you climb the tech tree high enough, you’ll be able to tech to awesome units like dragons (that breathe fire). Each unit has its own pros and cons and it’s up to you to figure out how they work and what to use them for.
Of course, there are already a few fan sites that you can use to get detailed stats on each unit.
Another feature that makes Lordz.io stand out is that each army has a general that commands it. If you happen to kill the general in battle, you can commandeer the entire army. That’s right. You literally steal their units if your own army is big enough. This is why a battle can swing either way.
And then there’s the alliance feature. You’ll want to group up with some other players because it’s very difficult to survive by yourself. You can chat with other plays and find a clan to join so you have some allies who can help you out if you get attacked. This is especially important at the beginning of the game.
You should also choose an underpopulated server for better chances of winning and an even playing ground against other players.
The game usually lends it hat towards giant armies. The players with the biggest armies usually win- whether in a group or solo.
Sure, you could be sneaky with a small group of soldiers, but having a massive army nearly always wins every single time. You need to be strategic with your soldiers though- split pushing and attacking at the right times are key factors to winning the game.
