Dragons of Atlantis

Release Date:  2010
Publisher:  Kabam
Developer:  Kabam
Genre:  Strategy
Sponsor:

The continent of Atlantis is submerging into the bottom of the ocean, and its civilization must be passed down continuously. You can be the glorious successor who can shape the future of the civilization. Yet the crown is made of thorns and for the only survivor of the warfare. If you are ready, the door of Atlantis is already open.

Review:

Dragon of Atlantis? Surely there will be dragon’s play in the strategy game. If you decide to give a shot to the game because of the dragons like I did, I have to first make clear that you won’t get them soon enough as you expected.

To start with, we need to choose our destiny to be a Primus, Solerian, Amazon or Zolmec, the four tribes of atlantis that must battle one another to inherit the future of all humankind for survival. According to the lead-in NPC, the key to winning the war is the dragons. Yet where we need to do first is invariably to build a mighty city.

Tutorial stops abruptly after leading us to build couples of structures in City and Field. After that, quests serve as guidance of building queue. Tasks are many but progression is slow, for we are only allowed to build one building at a time, which is compounded by the long time required for each. After several hours’ play, the city still looks empty with large patches of land vacant for later-coming constructions. And unlike lots of strategy games like Empire Rising and The Golden Age, the game doesn’t have a coherent story-driven quest line to move forward the whole building part. Not that we want the monotonous descriptions usually left unread. But the quests in the game are at random. For instance, early at Lv. 2, I was able to upgrade the Dragon’s Keep to have an egg there for no reason, and then simply waited for long before I finally could have it hatched.

As the city grows with buildings stably (though slowly) built and upgraded, the game becomes more engaging with diversified activities to join. We can adjust the tax rate for more gold yet keep it under control so as to avoid the slump of population happiness, and we need to train troops and appoint generals in the Office’s Quarter at the cost of 20-gold’s salary per hour to lead an attack, for instance.

Besides the domestic activities to attend to, exploration of the outside world is a must. Entering the world map, we can seize different regions to get corresponding bonuses, such as 40% more lumber production by occupying the Forest, 35% more food production from conquered Savanna or Lake, and more resources collectable after outposts built on Plains, etc.

Still no dragons, huh? They really come late in the game. The Dragon’s Keep in the city is where the creature is hatched and raised. The higher of the Keep’s level, the stronger of the dragon. Five types of dragon are offered, each bestowed with specific attributes in terms of life, speed, defense, melee and range. And we have to find or buy the four pieces of armor outfitting the basic Great Dragon so as to touch upon its aerial combat training.

Great Dragon is the main defense power for the city as well as the outpost. Since there are also Water Dragon, Stone Dragon, Fire Dragon and Wind Dragon in the game, I am not sure whether they could be taken into frontline as an attacking force as well. And during several days’ play, I kept expectation for more dragon play in mind, but didn’t see much to come. Perhaps I didn’t play long enough, or the game doesn’t give enough play to dragon in fact. Additional dragon eggs and armor pieces are not easily gained that we may chance upon one during attacks, but the surer and quicker way is through purchase from shops. Moreover, it seems that we need to hatch a certain type of dragon eggs so as to unlock more outposts.

In-game shop provides 7 types of items to facilitate the gameplay, covering resource production, population increase, dragon boost and so on. While general designs such as resources, speed-up packages as well as various Nanao (to increase production rate or transport resources from outpost to man city) comprise the basic supplies, there are also quite a lot of dragon-related items, such as different kinds of dragon egg, a full set of dragon armor, purple bones to increase dragons defenses, and Ark of Flames chest containing a fire dragon egg, four pieces of fire armor and three completion grants, etc. To enrich the gamplay, we can also buy various Curses here to impede attackers’ resource production rate by 25% for 24 hours, such as sending locust horde to lower food production or placing infestation of worms to decrease lumber growth.

Dragons of Atlantis would have slided into oblivion due to the similarity of its city-building and strategy elements to most games of this genre had it not lifted itself a little up by its inclusion of Dragon’s play in it. At the core, it plays like Kingdoms of Camelot a lot. Already mark itself with a distinct Dragon feature, why not give it more play so as to finally set itself apart from the fatal resemblance?

Overview:

Dragons of Atlantis published by Kabam (Samurai Dynasty and Global Warfare) for Facebook is a fantasy browser-based MMORPG that blends empire building, real-time strategy and social interaction together. It is set in a mythical background where players need to choose one from four ancient tribes known as the Solerians, Amazons, Zolmecs and Primus. Such a choice, nevertheless, would not influence much on the core gameplay such as which city to destroy or with whom to ally, etc.

With empire building as an important element, this game provides the typical quests system to guide players to collect resources and expand their empires in sequence. As usual, resources include four basic types, namely food, stone, mental and wood, which can be produced in fields outside the city, stored in vaults, and stolen by enemies as well. Resources are accumulated to contribute to the expansion of the empire with different types conducive to specific purposes in varied missions. For instance, stones are in great demands to reinforce the city walls especially above Level 7, while food is of primary importance in supporting armies in frontline. Besides, gold in this game is equally important, since it is useful in conducting researches in Science Center, raising Great Dragon and Paying generals, etc. Similarly, gold can be gained through levying taxes from residents, purchasing at trading post, and robbing enemies. Upon resources and gold, buildings of various kinds can be unlocked to serve their purposes and military units, both realistic and fictional, can be forged to be dispatched into the ultimate war.

As indicated in the title of this game, one of the selling points should be dragon. Indeed, each player can have one dragon to defend his/her own city. However, players must start in the first place from spending resources and gold to hatch eggs in Dragon’s Keeps and upgrade their dragons gradually until maturity. Whereas defense is the major task of dragons, they can also be sent to launch attacks and raids on other players’ cities, which will of course cause vulnerability of their own guarding cities for the time being. Since the great dragon element is the magnet to a great part of players, the newly released addition of Dragon Attack by its developer will definitely make the engaged fans to stay and appeal to rookies to come.

    DoA is the second biggest waste of time in my game search. I spent months doing offers & playing the best I could until I got to 5 million power with 100k+ fts etc…. People started cussing me out in my inbox to get me to quit. I showed proof of this ToS violation to support & they were never blocked. I just had to manually block each of their accounts from contacting me. Constant problems had me in support almost every day. Since it is BETA, I thought they would appreciate the feedback…. Instead, I was wrongfully banned for using scripts or add ons & they expect me to start another account if I want to play again. Whatever! Kabam just got put on my list with Zynga of game networks to avoid due to scams, cheaters & inducing rage spending!

    im just wondering when do i get to take my dragon on battles is there a certain level i need 2 be to do so and if so what is the level

    • DragonBass says:

      u need to have a Great dragon (lvl 8 dragons keep) and u need all the dragon armor for that dragon (attack lvl 9 and 10 Anthropus camps.. the easiest way is to use about 3000 longbowmen and 300 giants)

    • Tammi says:

      you can find the armor very easily in level 5 anthro camps with only about 6000 longbowmen, i always send in a few hundred spies for good measure, it will take ages to get giants and they are very slow

    • mastercraft says:

      You need all the armors, there are four armors for each dragons. and the Great Dragon armors are found in Anthro camp Lv5+. and the elemental armors are found wherever the egg is found.
      -I hope this helped

  5. The Man says:

    This game should be closed down!!!
    Its a SCAM!!! its designed to force people who want to continually play to spend money to compete.
    then after spending money massive game issues arise! troops vanish from accounts and KABAM refuse to refund or return them!!

    Dragons of Atlantis is the biggest waste of money time and investors money ever!!!!!!!!!!

    • DragonBass says:

      u dont need to buy anything… just attack camps and stuff lvl 8-10 and u get wat evers in the shop from time to time.. i have all my dragon armor and more and i didnt spend a penny on that game.

    • Matt says:

      That's why you don't buy rubies. Everything you can get for rubies you can get through the game.

      • Ri.PO.ff says:

        No you can't.
        You cannot get enough Completion Grants.
        You cannot get anywhere near enough Ancestral Seals.

        You can reach a moderately high level with Rubies … but you will never be able to build all the special troops.

        • DOA Master says:

          You can get Completion Grants and Ancestral Seals by winning them in the Vault. If you could get Completion Grants and Ancestral Seals easily, then everything wouold be handed to you and what fun would that be. If you have no patience and want everything, stick to child games.

  8. BLANK says:

    DDDTomcat U SUCK

    • tim t-beaux says:

      i've played for a year and a half. im only at 53m power, but i have really good troops, not a ton of fluff. i agree that kabam hasnt in the past done a good job of getting to things quick, but recently they have gotten better. with the spectral out post anyone can get special troops as long as they have the out post and a level 10 portal. they are making it easier for people who dont pay to get ahead in the game but you have to realize that without money there would be no kabam.

  9. wraith draogn sux says:

  20. Wolve says:

    Seriously, the second I put my wall on fight back, some guy plundered my supplies while he IS cheating. Last time I checked he had a lvl 11 wall, now he has a lvl 3, but with a power of 1,405,056, which is NOT normal. Then, something happens which makes me LOSE 134,000 food per hour, making me unable to upgrade or create anything at all, thus causing me to go on a complete rage towards this game. It SUCKS like hell and Kabam has really got to do something about it.

    • mUrDeReR says:

      Ur such a noob. if u have lots of troops, ur food goes on minus to feed it. I'm lvl 20 wid 6 mill power. You cannot see an opponents wall level in this game. If you lose troops while defending, it is not cheating. I agree that this game is good, but i also agree the prices are outrageous and the game has some Major problems like troop loss and busy realms which frustrate all users. and also, i have contacted them many times but they offer no help. I have a training camp in my Spectral outpost, where u cannot build one. They have not replied to me about it though i sent over 10 messages to support. Though the game idea is nice, i dont recommend it due to absolutely "NO" support from the KABAM team.

      • mUrDeReR says:

        Also, I lost 300,000 troops to some weak player with only 60,00 troops even though i had put up defensive buffs on my army. I have sent the report and the complaint to KABAM, because i know the mechanics and know i had no way of losing it but still they didn't reply since 4 weeks.

    • Anonymous says:

      How do you know his Wall level?

      Losing food is normal, it's a good sign which means you have troops. I'm -4M per hour, and some bigger players are at -60M.

  21. James says:

    *** DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME:

    1) Full of bugs
    2) Full of cheaps
    3) Pay 2 Win Game = expensive and a waste of time!

  23. Ri.PO.ff says:

    Don't waste your time.
    The company (Kabam) have useless support.
    Their game keeps crashing.
    You end up with days were you cannot play.
    You file for support – wait days for a response – and it's useless.

    You can buy Rubies … yet even that doesn't get them to pay attention or get things fixed.
    Instead they simply take your money and leave you with a game you cannot play.
    (No refunds – asking for one simply gets snotty replies)

    Do Not Play Kabam Games

  38. Jantje says:

    One of the best games to waste your time on, I guess..

    It was reasonably fun (besides being able to do fuckall at times cause of build times etc) in the start but after
    reaching a certain amount of troops which costed me over a week to get, I lost them all in one attack on some crappy ass wilderness, that's when I said, BB DoA!

    nao to entendendo nada nao sei como pega armaduras como deixa tudo forte tem que comprar as coisas ou se ganha

  44. melody says:

    if you are looking for a game to play i would not recommend DoA. the site is substandard and is full of technical glitches. in game chat is unreliable-often not posting at all forcing you to refresh the page. there is not a pm option that is part of the instant mssg ingame, you must mail a person for a pm.

    if you do not click the site every few seconds it boots you and the refresh process is slow and is stunted with advertisements for game items to buy. HOWEVER, if you do play the game and click every few seconds while playing the game, YOU ARE BANNED FOR ONE HOUR " YOU HAVE MADE TOO MANY REQUESTS OF OUR SERVER, PLEASE MAKE FEWER REQUESTS OF THE SERVER". it is clear to me that the developers are trying to save on server space rather than meeting the needs of the players.

    all of that being said, the game could be awesome because the game is fun, but due to mismanagement and poor software technology it is one to pass by at this time.
