A friend and I played it back when it first hit Steam a few months ago... don't even bother. It's unabashedly P2W; you can purchase cards that give you increased resources and military units, army movement speeds, reduced building times, etc. You also get cards by playing but they are random, and to trade in cards for an actually useful one takes a month or two of collecting them. To get simple things like building queues and the ability to relocate buildings (which is mandatory for optimizing resource gathering) you have to pay.

We found that the majority of players were stay at home wives/mothers who had the time and cash to invest in the game. However it was something that I could run in the background and just check on it every few hours to see if my new buildings or castle upgrades had completed (building times increase with each successive building, by the time I stopped playing a single village building was taking 9 real-time hours to contruct, an average sized castle takes several days, an optimal castle can take a month... unless you pay).

Stay away unless you don't mind shelling out cash to be able to compete.

Thanks for the confirmation, I was going to ask how much p2w it was. Aside from the fact its not my cup of tea.
