    Gameplay

    In Kings of Chaos, you are in command of an army of either humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, undead or hobbits. The aim of the game is to strengthen your army to attack other players and take their gold, raid other players to kill their soldiers or sabotage other players to destroy their weapons! Players are ranked so you can see how your forces stack up to everyone else.

    To build up your attack and defense strength, you must recruit soldiers and equip them with weapons. You may also hire mercenaries or train your soldiers. To recruit soldiers you must have people click on your unique link (you can find this in your Command Center). Each time you recruit an additional soldier, your attack and defense strength will increase slightly, as will the amount of gold you receive per turn. Also, for every two recruits each of your officers gets, you will receive an additional soldier! The number of officers you can have is unlimited, so the more people who sign up to be your officer the faster you can build your army.

    In addition to those soldiers generated by unique link clicks, you can choose to conscript soldiers - once a day you will recruit a number of soldiers determined by your current 'unit production' value. This value can be upgraded on the Training page.

    Commander Conscription is where you receive 'unit production' based on your commanders unit production. The higher their unit production the more you receive up to 2,560 unit production per 24hrs.

    To train your soldiers, use the Training page. Soldiers can be trained to be specialists in either attack or defense - whichever you choose, they will boost that ranking further, while ceasing to contribute to the other ranking. You can also train soldiers to become spies or sentries, which will be discussed in more detail later. In this case they cease to contribute to your attack/defense strength and the amount of gold you get per turn, as instead they are being kept in readiness for any covert missions you may choose to send them on.

    You can hire mercenaries on the Mercenaries page, but only up to a strength of 33.33% of your total force - so for every 3 normal soldiers you gain, you can hire one more mercenary. Mercenaries contribute to your attack or defense strength, but do not contribute to the amount of gold you gain each turn.

    Weaponry can be purchased (and repaired, sold or scrapped) on the Armory page. For each race there are various weapons available for both attacking and defending, becoming increasingly expensive as they become more effective. The exact strength of each weapon in your armory is dependent upon its state of repair (weapons become damaged during battles and must be repaired to remain fully effective), and also your level of siege technology and fortifications. Higher levels of siege technology and fortifications raise the strength of every single weapon you possess, so they are well worth upgrading. You can upgrade your siege and fortification levels on the Armory page.

    Covert Action is a general term for your Spy and Sentry ratings. Your force of spies becomes more powerful by training soldiers to be spies. Every spy you train increases your spy strength, and therefore helps you move up in spy ranking. Also, if you conduct many espionage missions spies will sometimes get caught, so you will need to replace them. If your spy rating is high, you will be able to see more players' gold on the battlefield without having to spy on them. Your force of sentries becomes more powerful by training soldiers to be sentries. Every sentry you train increases your sentry rating. The higher your sentry rating, the harder it is for other players to see your gold on the battlefield, spy on you or sabotage your weapons. If you invest in spies or sentries you should upgrade your covert skill when you can. Upgrading applies to your entire force of spies and sentries. Upgrading covert skill, training spies and training sentries can all be done one the Training page.

    • You will need 2-1 spy to sentry ratio to see their gold on the battlefield and vice versa for sentry details.
    • You need 1-5 spy to sentry ratio to be able to successfully recon a player.
    • To successfully sabotage a player you will need 1-2 spy to sentry ratio.

    Each race in Kings of Chaos has a particular area in which they excel. These can work to your advantage in gaining higher rankings, so it is worth considering them before choosing your race:

    • Humans earn 15% more gold each turn than the other five races. Since this can be used for just about anything, it is very flexible. Humans also receive 40% Fewer Fucking Casualties to give them less losses.

    • Dwarves are 40% stronger at defending than any other race. This makes it more likely that they will withstand enemy attacks, A 20% spy bonus will help Dwarves see gold in the dark.

    • Elves are 40% better at recon (spying) and sabotage (sabbing) than any other race. Elves also receive 15% Attack bonus. The Spy bonus & attack bonus should allow you to build a strong covert account with a strong attack force.

    • Orcs attack with 40% more strength than the other races. The advantages to this are obvious, giving you a much better chance of defeating other armies in combat. A 20% Defense bonus helps to defend their gold.

    • Undead lose 60% less soldiers when attacked making this a good protective race if you can't spend a lot of time on the game. Undead are also awarded a 25% Sentry bonus since its hard to see the Undead.

    • Hobbits have a 40% Sentry Bonus so they are better at hiding their gold and defending against sabotage with their sentry bonus. Along with a 10% Income bonus gives the Nasty Hobbitses! a chance to keep their precious gold.


    • Current TBG (Turn-based gold) by race for all soldiers and covert troops:
      • Elves, Orcs, Dwarves and Undead: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.8 gold per turn.

      • Hobbits: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2.2 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.88 gold per turn.

      • Humans: Untrained, trained attack, and trained defense soldiers earn 2.3 gold per turn. Soldiers trained into covert troops (spies and sentries) earn 0.92 gold per turn.

    Quick Start Guide

    Overview

    In Kings of Chaos, you are in command of an army of humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, undead or hobbits. To be successful, you must manage your army and defeat your enemies. You must keep your troops in top condition and recover from losses. A powerful army will be strong in all four aspects of the game: attacking, defending, spying, and sentry (counter-intelligence). This makes it important to keep your forces and efforts relatively balanced in all these areas.

    Recruiting

    There are a number of ways to build your army and thus generate more gold and become more powerful:

    • You can get people to click on your Unique Link, giving you 1 additional soldiers each time it is clicked.
      • Logged-in players may click a given Unique Link up to 2 times per 24 hours.
    • If you tell friends about Kings of Chaos, you may recruit them as your officers:
      • For every two soldiers your officers gain from their own Unique Links, you will gain an extra soldier for free!
    • You can also gain morale by clicking on the Recruit page. Each number you click will give you 10x morale which will turn into soldiers.
    • Finally, you may buy mercenaries - soldiers that will fight for you but will not generate extra gold.

    Getting Started (Creating/Activating your account)

    To create an account and establish your presence in the Land of Chaos you must register an account. To do this click the "Register" link in the Menu Bar on the left, or click on one of the Join Humans/ Join Dwarves/ Join Elves/ Join Orcs/ Join Undead/ Join Hobbits button to pick your race. You will then need to enter a username, password, email (not required upon signup although needed to retrieve your login detals if you forget them) then click the recaptcha box to prove you are human and click Sign Up now. Once you've done this, you are ready to log in and command your army. Congratulations! You are now a Player in Kings of Chaos.

    When you have a KOC account and give your Unique Link to someone to click, the clicker will also be given the option to join your army as one of your officers! For every two clicks/soldiers an officer receives, you will receive one soldier. (Without doing anything! Just for being their commander! Sweet.)

    New Players

    As a new player your account is in protection mode. You are not able to attack or be attacked by anyone in the game, you also cannot send or receive ingame messages. The protection is lifted after an hour, this enables you to have a look around the game, spend your start up gold, build your army by clicking on the recruiter (join the forum via the link in the recruiter to access a faster recruiter until we speed the crap out of our own), you can also conquest to gain experience which helps in the game. Get a feel for the game during this protection mode as once the protection on your account is over that is when the fun begins.

    Menu Bar

    The Menu Bar contains most of the important features and tools of Kings of Chaos. Located on the left of the page, it allows you to navigate through different aspects of your army and manage your forces.

    Command Center

    The Command Center is where you can see a broad outline of your forces.

    • Your Recruiting Link is found at the top of the Command Center. This is the primary method many players use to build their armies. Give this link to your friends to recruit them as your officers, which quickly grows your army through signup bonuses and trickle-down from their own clicking. Click here to learn how to recruit soldiers
    • User Info shows your general contact information.
    • Military Overview Shows you general military stats, such as what your siege level is at and what fortifications you have. It also shows you how much gold you have and how much you are generating.
    • Officers that you may have show up under this heading. Officers help build your army, and you may also choose to work with them as close allies.
    • Military Effectiveness shows you your Attack, Defense, Spy, and Sentry ratings, as well as how you are ranked against other KOC players in these categories. This section shows you how well you are doing and how you stack up to other players in each aspect of the game.
    • Personnel shows you how your forces are distributed.
    • Previous Logins gives you the IP addresses and times of the last five logins to your account.
    • Preferences is where you go to modify the setting on your account. Be very careful in this section - many of the changes here cannot be undone.

    Attack

    When you wish to venture out beyond the safety of your fortifications, click the Attack button. Here, you will view the Battlefield, a listing of other players ranked near you. If you have previously reconned a player, you will see an eye in the first column which will link you to your intelligence log when clicked. The amount of gold in a player's treasury will be displayed if your Spy Rating is much larger than the opponent's Sentry Rating. You can page through the battlefield and search for other armies to attack or spy on. Once you click on a player's name you will see their User Stats, where you can see basic info about the player, any officers the player has, and you can recognize the player as friend, neutral, enemy, alliance member, or ignored if you wish to ignore all messages from them. From the User Stats panel you can choose to send a personal message, or conduct an attack, recon, or sabotage mission.

    • Attack Mission - If you attack successfully, you will steal a portion of the enemy's available gold based on the damage you inflicted and the relative sizes of your armies. There is also a chance that you or your opponent will suffer casualties, based on army size and damage inflicted. The actual damages/repairs are shown on your armory page and not in the attack log. The casualties are listed with mercenaries and soldiers under "your losses" and any covert (spy or sentry) losses are shown in the "details" of the attack log.
    • Raid Mission - If you raid someone you receive less gold and use less turns than a normal attack, raiding is used to inflict more damage to an account to kill spies/sentries.
    • Reconnaissance Mission - You can conduct Recon missions to view info about an opponent's fortifications and forces. The chance that the mission is a success is dependant on the overall strength of the spies you send, as well as the enemy's Sentry Rating. If the mission is not a success you will no longer lose a portion of the spies you sent. There are a maximum of 20 recons permitted on a specific target per 24 hours.
    • Sabotage Mission - If your opponent has overwhelming defense or has been relentlessly assaulting you, perhaps you may choose to engage in sabotage. In these missions, when you send a number of spies you specify what type and quantity weapons you want to try to sabotage. If your spies make it past enemy sentries they will attempt to sabotage part of the enemy's armory. If you attempt to sabotage too much of the enemy's armory the sabotage will likely fail, and no sabotage mission is guaranteed to be successful. If you fail in a sabotage mission, you may lose a portion of your spies and even some of the tools they carry. You are allowed a maximum of 6 successful sabotage turns against a player per 24 hours and limited to 25 attempts to achieve this.
    • Personnel and Military Effectiveness - When you are preparing to attack, you are also shown your army stats again so you can make sure you want to go through with the mission, and in the case of covert missions, how many spies you have to dedicate to the task. In general, if your opponent has a larger army TFF (total fighting force) than yours, you will steal more of their gold as a reward.

    Attack Log

    Here you can see details of incoming and outgoing attacks. This can be a very useful way to see how much offensive and defensive damage you do on average, who you need to try to get protection from, or what armies you have had success with in the past. In your attack log you will see Attacks on You and Attacks on Others, and you will be able to page through the attacks if there are too many to fit on one screen.

    Conquest

    To help improve the skills and strength of your soldiers, you may send your soldiers on conquests against various denizens of the Kings of Chaos world.

    • To begin, you quest starts with Wolves, after 15 successful conquests you will open up a new level which may require you to upgrade your Siege level in your armory to be able to attempt the new level.
    • Each level will give you 50 Experience up until you hit 75 attempts, where it will decrease the more conquests you undertake.
    • You will also receive gold for each time you conquest but be warned you will incur damages to your weapons.
    • The valuable Experience you gain can be used to upgrade your economy or technology levels in the training section or use it trade in the trade center.
    • Spectres: The final conquest only gives you experience, you DO NOT receive gold or damages by undertaking Spectres.
    • You may undertake the same conquest multiple times as per your requirements.

    Conquest Levels

    To be successful on all conquests you will need atleast double SA strength to each conquest opponent's strength.

  • Wolves : Siege upgrade needed - None
  • Halflings : Siege upgrade needed - Flaming Arrows
  • Gnomes : Siege upgrade needed - Ballistas
  • Ogres : Siege upgrade needed - Ladders
  • Goblins : Siege upgrade needed - Torjan Horses
  • Wraiths : Siege upgrade needed - Catapults
  • Giants : Siege upgrade needed - War Elephants
  • Wizards : Siege upgrade needed - Siege Towers
  • Fairies : Siege upgrade needed - Trebuchets
  • Spectre : Siege upgrade needed - Black Powder

Armory

Your Armory is where you keep track of your weapons, and keep them in fighting condition.

  • Current Weapon Inventory is where you see the weapons you currently own, as well as their strengths. If your weapons are damaged, it is cheaper to repair them than to buy new ones. You can also sell weapons at a reduced rate for gold.
  • Current Tool Inventory is where you see the tools for sentries and spies that you currently own. You can also sell spy and sentry tools at a reduced rate.
  • Buy Weapons allows you to purchase new weapons for your forces. In general, the more expensive a weapon is, the stronger it is. Some weapons are unique to your race, while others can be bought by anyone.
  • Buy Tools allows you to purchase new tools for your spies and sentries, making them much more effective.
  • Upgrade Fortifications is where you can strengthen your permanent defenses. This makes it much more difficult to be attacked successfully. Fortifications strengthen your defensive units as a whole.
  • Upgrade Siege allows you to purchase new upgrades to increase your attack rating to help overpower your opponents. This strengthens your attacking abilities as a whole.

Alliances

In the Alliance section you can create your own alliance or join another player's alliance.

  • Start an alliance by entering the alliance you would like to use to rule over Kings of Chaos.
  • Once you have created an alliance you can give others your alliance join link which is located at the bottom of your alliance page.
  • Once other players join your alliance by clicking the link you will need to approve them.
  • In the alliance center you can also disband alliance, set various levels of members ie. Owner, unapprove or demote them.
  • Players can now upload an alliance image they would like to use to promote their alliance. The image will appear once approved by game admins at the top of your alliance page. Admins will not approve offensive or sexually explicit images (If you do not think it will be approved then do not upload it).
  • Once an alliance image has been submitted via the owner of the alliance that image will also appear on a players stats page underneath what alliances the player is a part of.
  • Alliance stats are also listed underneath the alliance image.

Training

  • Personnel shows you how many soldiers, mercenaries, spies, sentries, etc you have.
  • Train Your Troops allows you train your untrained soldiers to be attack or defense specialists, or to be skilled in the subterfuge of spies and sentries. Here you can also revert any attack or defense soldiers to regular units.
  • Upgrade Covert Skill/Sentry Skill makes all of your spies and sentries more powerful - it is a very effective way to increase the power of your covert forces.
  • Upgrade Unit Production allows you to conscript soldiers from the local populace - each day this number of soldiers will join your forces.

Intelligence

Your intelligence files are similar to your attack log, but they give you details of covert missions from and against you. Here you see details of Intercepted Intelligence Operations as well as Intelligence Files from missions you have conducted. Not all missions are intercepted and therefore you will not see everyone who has reconned you or sabotaged you. Not all recons or sabotages done by you were intercepted either, this is called "ghosting". When no missions are intercepted, that player has been "ghosted".

Trade

Players can now utilize the Trade section to trade Experience for turns, instant soldiers, commander and race changes. The trade center is subject to change and could even see additional trades added.

Safe

Kings of Chaos now has a SAFE. A percentage of your turn based gold + your economy upgrade is deposited into your SAFE, you can also upgrade to allow more to be deposited into your SAFE. When you have the desired amount you wish to withdraw you can withdraw it to spend on weapons, tools and upgrades. Be aware that many will look to steal your gold when you withdraw it so be quick. There are a lot of theives in Kings of Chaos. Race bonuses are not included in the deposited gold.

Statistics

The statistics page gives players a range of ingame player orientated and alliance orientated stats. You can also view game stats as well. The statistics page is a work in progress and will be finialized ASAP.

Recruit

Recruiting is an effective way for you to build your army's morale, which eventually results in new recruits. When you recruit for another player by completing the CAPTCHA on the recruit page, your army's morale increases and they receive one soldier. When another player recruits for you, your army's morale drops, but you gain a soldier. Recruiting proceeds in this order: you, your friends, other members of your alliance, then finally any other users with positive morale (ordered by greatest morale). This means that the greater your morale, the quicker it will be converted into extra recruits.

Only logged-in players can turn your army's morale into new soldiers. Non-logged-in friends can still increase your army size by clicking your unique link, found in your Command Center. Click here to learn how to use your Unique Link to gain officers

Mercenaries

On this page you can see the details of your current troops, and you can hire mercenaries. Mercenaries can be hired as attack specialists, defence specialists, or all-purpose troops. Once hired, they cannot be retrained. Mercenaries cannot be spies, and do not contribute to the amount of gold you receive each turn, but they do boost your attack and/or defence strength (depending on what type of training they have). Mercenaries become available for hire randomly and their numbers are limited so there are often none available shortly after that. You can only have 33.33% of your army consisting of mercenaries. Mercenaries are added to your total fighting force (TFF) and they have to die to lower your TFF.

Buddy List

The buddy list can be used to keep track of people who you recognize as either neutral, friend, enemy, ignored or alliance members. You can recognize players via the drop down on their stats page. You are allowed a maximum of 180 players per buddy type. (Hopefully that's 180 friends, not 180 enemies!)

Logout

The Logout option on the menu will log you out from Kings of Chaos. This is useful if your computer is used by more than one person, to prevent others from accessing your Kings of Chaos account. If you stop using the site for a length of time, you will be automatically logged out anyway - this is to help reduce the load on the extremely busy KoC webserver.

Messages

The Send Message page is accessed from a user's stats page, by clicking on the Send Message button. You are then presented with a page which has areas for you to enter a subject and a message to be sent to that user.

When someone has sent you a message in this fashion, you will notice the message indicator beneath the main menu will change to show how many new messages you have waiting for you. To read them, simply click on the red number and you will be taken to the Read Messages page. The most recent message will appear at the top of the page, with older messages beneath it in reverse order of receipt. You can use the buttons on the right to Reply to or Delete each message.

Recent Logs

This box indicates when you were last attacked, sabbed, or reconned. Even if a player ghosts you the last sabbed still indicates when someone sabbed you.

Experience per turn

Players can now upgrade their EXP (Experience per turn). You can use the Experience you gain to trade for turns, soldiers, commander and race changes, SAFE upgrades, Econ upgrades and Tech upgrades.

Daily Login/Activity Bonus

Players now receive a daily login/activity bonus. Players will receive this bonus once per day, See below for bonus details.

  • Day 1: 100 Experience + 100 Soldiers
  • Day 2: 200 Experience + 200 Soldiers
  • Day 3: 300 Experience + 300 Soldiers
  • Day 4: 400 Experience + 400 Soldiers
  • Day 5: 500 Experience + 500 Soldiers
  • Day 6: 600 Experience + 600 Soldiers
  • Day 7: 1000 Experience + 1000 Soldiers

    After 7 days the bonus resets to Day 1.

If you fail to login consecutively your bonus resets to Day 1.

Notes

You can now store information about a player for future reference in the Notes Section of a Players Stats page. By simply typing in the notebox, you can store information, multiple notes or remove notes no longer needed. Only the player creating the notes can view/store/delete them so no one else has access to this information. Notes stored on a user will carry over from Era to Era unless you delete them or the player deletes their account.

KoC Upgrades

What happened to all my stuff?
Era 5 has begun! At the beginning of each Era, we reset everyone's weaponry and army size to give everyone a fresh start. Now is the time to rebuild and prove yourself better than those around you!

Why am I losing gold and soldiers?
You are probably being attacked. Check your attack log to see who attacked you, how many soldiers they killed and how much gold they stole from you.

How come I'm not listed in the rankings?
