Before you try to start playing WarOnline, it is best advised to read this brief Getting Started guide, and to also check out the great Tutorials provided by our very own players.
There are THREE types of games :
Battles : Faster turn-based combat-only games. There is no micromanagement. Troops are selected (either by scenario or manually), and two players take turns in out-maneuvering their opponents in tactical combat.
Duels : Medium two player turn-based strategy games. Kingdom management including researching techs, buildings, learning and deploying different troops, and an overall focus on strategy.
Campaigns : Longer multi-player tick-based strategy games. Kingdom management and politics are the name of the game. With many other players in the game sometimes a friendly word can go further than a massive army. These games usually only tick at about 1-2 turns per day, often lasting 2-3 months.
