COG on Yoogames:

We finally had our servers merge recently, one year of waiting Finally paid off or so I though….


For a bit of history I’m from server 14, we got wacked on our first merge and then we waited 1 year and 3 month before being merged again. I almost stop playing but the idea of a merge brought me back to life, I was prepared, I even reread my guide and Koram guide.

It might took us more than a year before being merged, but It took 3 fucking days for the server to be finish and now we are back to sim city for another year. We’re still in the adjustment period and the server is over….

This is my troop while watching my league mate getting attack

I couldn’t even attack to help because I moved my troop too late, so I could only send support and watch my brother lose there capital in agony.
Sure they’re the multi-server that make sense to keep playing but I don’t want to wait another year…

I think the servers merge seriously need to be rethink, the idea is good but they’re too much stuff that kind of get in the way and it’s kind of boring that we waited a year for that and it took like 3 days.
At least our initial Tiamat S14 vs KE s20 (not sure the server no) took around a week but that was pretty fast too.
I’ll try to think of something that could be done to have a decent merge and post it in the suggestion forum.

Let me know what you think, here or in the forum thread

My Story from the merge of server U5 (S14 & S20)

Koram guide

city in flame

King of the Hill is series of battles between leagues to occupy and hold different locations for a specified period of time. It is the only way to receive the kingdom tax (regional and national) and other prize.
From the beginner guide: (

  • King of the Hill lasts for 30 minutes for both regional and national wars.
  • Regional War: Starts every Saturday at 10:00-10:30 (PST)
  • National War: Starts every Sunday at 19:00-19:30 (PST)
  • The first attack may be sent out at exactly 10:00 and 19:00 respectively
  • NPCs will defend the city first. When the NPCs are destroyed, players will defend the city.
  • Players from opposing leagues will attack each other.  (Does not matter if the league is a "sister league")
  • Players from the same league will help defend each other.
  • King of the Hill is where players can receive a tax license.
  • Capitals are defended with units that have the high defence.  Units that have a lower defence rating than your main defence unit already defending the capital will be sent back to your city.

Other thing they forgot :

– The time provided here is not always true, they sometime change the time to accommodate players who cannot play in those hours.

– Troop deployed to a King of the Hill target (KoTH) will take the same amount of to reach the city, you troop speed, heroes ability and upgrade have no influence on the time. However you state location have an influence on how much time it will take to arrive at destination. It for minute if you are in the same region (north, east, west, south) than the capital and 8 if you are outside.  here how north, east, west, south is separated :


– Regional KOTH targets can hold up to 2,000 player defending units. National KOTH targets can hold up to 5,000 Player defending units.
– They are 6 prizes per city in the regional and 9 for the national war.
note that only the following player that achieves the following goal will receives a revenue license (tax) (among other prize).

Master of Marching: Player who occupies the target city for the longest time.
Lord of Slayer: Player who have the most Kill
Lord of War: Given randomly to any player who occupied the KOTH city during the event.

On revenue license (tax permit) : Regional war give the tax permission for your region and national war give it to the whole server. When you have it you need to chose a league to tax.
You get a lot of resources when you use it , it always depends on which league your tax but it always a decent amount my lowest was around 150k of each resources and highest 500K-600k.

Tips and tactical note:

I noticed player knock out the troop then leave to prevent lost, so that mean you can always try to send from you sub and you might be able to grab a city (this happen specially in the regional)
Just by occupying the city you can get the lord of war so it might worth it.
I haven’t really try any fancy tactic, most of the time there not much players that are doing it any way since for some of us its during office hour or in the middle of the night.
Most of the time if you’re in the top league you’ll end up hitting your own sister league or supporting your league member if you arrive late, so try not to be late.

However if you have a huge force it can help you get kill and become Lord of slayer, then withdraw your troop to prevent lost.


Hope it help and check those guide with image and stuff for more info on King of the hill.

Beginner guide to KOTH

Gehrshi On King of the Hill

I’ve been suggested to look at a new game call DDTank. I seem pretty recent since most review date from the end of 2011.

DDTank is  kind of Worms like game with mmo element to, where to aim you give the angle you throw and how much power you put behind it. I might not have the nifty weaponry of worm but have a lot of element to it. They’re a weird thing with the name, there no tank in the game which is misleading.

When you start the game, you much first create a character and then you start with a basic weapon, a Hammer.
After a quick tutorial where they explain how to shoot, equip weapon, do mission and how to play vs other player you get a good sense of the game.

You can fight up with 3 others player, bigger fight would probably be a lot of fun too but it currently only support 4 player fight.
From what I played getting the physic right is really hard. In my first fight it took about 10 shoot before me or my opponent to hit each other.  That probably due to the only 10 second to aim which is not a lot. Another things that weird it’s it can by your turn twice or your opponent cans go twice before you, it prevents some kind of abuse like oh no he’s next so better hide but it remove at the same time the sense of what should you really be doing. Oh and once you shoot it seems you can move, maybe that only me but I would like to use my whole 10 seconds.


One thing I found from the few game I played the fact that there leveling and pay for advantage might be a great idea but in the game sense it feel unfair. On my first game my opponent was using a better weapon and boost and did 2-3 time the damage I did. Lucky for me he seems to have no clue how to aim when we are close so I was able to win anyway. In even if you both have the same weapon and number of worm, the map and who started the turn could do the whole difference between victory and defeat, with DDTank you have the same element but other can have a weapon advantages which increase the feeling of unfairness.
What to do
If you’re not playing the city provide you with a lot of stuff to do, from training to mission and shopping for new gear. You can even have a wedding with your other DDTank friend.

The idea behind DDTank are great but not exploited to its fullest. Since it’s new, they probably have a lot of good stuff coming so let keep a good eye on the game.

I’m currently trying a new game called 1000ad. I a turn based game were instead of playing real-time like tribal war or TKO you accumulate turn and can play them when you have time.

However there a twist, the number of turn you can have is caped so once your at 320 your cannot accumulate turn again.

Here a screen shot of how it look like:



I’ve played some game like that in the past like King of chaos, but this game seem to be more strategic than King of chaos though.

I’m currently playing my first round of the game, the last 28 days then the server restart.

I’m still trying to figure stuff out but they seem to already have a good community around the game, A youtube channel with tutorial and a beginner guide.

Give it a try, click on there link or the image at the beginning of the article.

I’ll probably bring a full review later this week, but hope you like trying out the game.

Last entry we got how the training work, how to manage your team and how to set you up for the game.

How to Build your team

1- Getting player :

The only way to get new players is through the Waiver Market.
The waiver market is where you can bid credits for players. If you bid a amount that you have and that you are the highest bidders, the player will be added to your team roster and have the amount of credits that were bid will be deducted from your account.

Not that you have to have a player that have been place on the waiver market so the new player will take is place. If you don’t have any player that are place on the market, you wont get any player even if you win the bid.

Remember only way to be a winning bidders is to have the highest bid and to have the credits your their account. There is no cost to place a bid.

What happens to the player that I put on waivers?

He go in the minor and you pays half is salary… no wait that the nhl. In order to bid on a player, you have to make room for him on your roster by putting a player on waivers. When a new player join he replace the player on the waivers and that player is then gone … forever.


In player management click on the player you want to put on the market. In the player information screen you can place him on the waiver market by clicking on the exit sign that say Put on waiver market.


if you change your mind, You can take the player off waivers, by clicking the TAKE OFF WAIVER MARKET button.
A player that is replaced by a winning bid is retired from the game. The manager receives 0 Credits for the player! You are buying a new player from the Waiver Market.

How many players should I put on waivers?
Place as many as you like. It probably better to start slow, putting one or 2 player on the market. The player are replaced when you win a bid, since there no limit to bid you might end up wining a lot of them. So what I did in the past is to put on the market a group of the same player (2-3 defence or winger) and bid only on the type of player I want to replace.

The players that you bid on may be with your team for 6 seasons or longer, so make sure that they are a good fit for your team.

When does the bidding process take place?
All bids are processed in the morning a 3h00 am GMT. Players immediately join their new teams and replace the player(s) on waivers. Any players on waivers who were not replaced remain with their teams.

How much should I bid?
I tend to bid really low and somehow tend to still get decent player. If you want a star player you need to be more aggressive but I noticed that if your team is in a lower division you seem to get player even if you have low bid.


Check the number of bidder near the player you want, 23 probably mean the minimum wont get it but sometime you’ll be surprise there might 22 that all bid 500 credit and you can go and bid 750 and win.

Let take this example, today there to player that are interesting and you really like to get them on the team.
So if you want them both you need at least two of you players on the waivers. If both bid are successful you will get both if only one win the first player in you list will be replaced (the one with the lowest roster no). So, if the waived players Roster Numbers are 3 and 6, the number 3 slot will be the first one filled.
Remember, a winning bid is a new player. If you waive a goalie and a center, and have 5 bids out on goalies and 3 bids out on center, if you win 2 bids on the goalies, then you will get 2 goalies added to your roster. CAUTION: When trying to acquire players at different positions with more than 1 bid per position, you can get more players at a position than you really wanted.

How are bids resolved? (from the shl forum)
Bids are resolved by position: goalies, defensemen, wingers, centers respectively. All goalie bids are resolved, then defensemen, then wingers and finally centers. Within each position, your highest bid of the highest overall rated player is considered first. Tie bids go to the manager with the lowest manager rating number. Recommendation: don’t try to bid on 2 players at different positions unless you only place 1 bid on each of those players. You’re probably going to have to pay a premium to get them, too. It’s better to place several lower bids on players at one position to get the best deal. Don’t forget to check Waiver Market History the next day if you didn’t win a bid, to see what the player went for. You can also check to see what team acquired the player by clicking on his name; this will let you know who is active in the market.

How much should I bid for one of these Star players? (from the shl forum)
When a star player is available, usually there are many more bidders that are interested and the player will go for the maximum possible bid. Since this means there will be several tie bidders, the manager with the lowest manager ranking will be awarded the player. The auction process becomes a kind of lottery. The question is, is this player worth the 10,000 credit price? If a manager is patient, he can usually acquire a very good player for even the minimum bid of 500 credits. Training a team for one season costs approximately 1500 credits. That’s 75 credits per player per season. Over the course of 6 seasons, that’s 450 credits in training per player. So, for 950 credits you will have an almost star player for several seasons. Is it really worth 9,000 more credits to have that “star” player right now? To some managers, the answer is yes. But if you’re just starting to build a team, probably not.

How should I build my team?
Plan for the future. Start with a good goaler, then go for a defenseman, and a scoring forward or a center. Remember, like we said before, players attributes will decline in their 7th season with a team. For some reason even training won’t help these veteran players, no matter what their age is. Taking that in consideration it’s probably better to split acquisitions over the course of several seasons, so after 6 seasons, you don’t have to replace all 20 players in one shot. And during any given year, each position has some veterans and some rookies. Bid only on the best players available. Players that are second or third rate will not catch up to the others, even with training. Many managers only have 2 goalers on their roster, it’s probably better that way since they don’t tend to get injured. After that it’s more up to you, I still recommend defence over offence at first but if you have 4 strong Def and 2 good line you can do pretty well specially in most division.

Is there a better time during the season to bid on players?
At the start of each season, winning managers get credits from SLH, so there are many managers bidding on players. At the end of the season, the bidding seems to fall off. If you can wait, the best the deals are probably to be had at the end of a season.

How to know if a player is good does the overall is enough ?

When buying players do not go by their Overall rating. Like we say before, this isn’t worth shit.

You need to check the other Players Attributes to decide on the best buy, these are different between position.

Here what attribute is the best to look at :
Goalkeepers – Goaltending, Puck Control, Speed, Passing
Defender – Hitting, Strength, Stamina, Puck Control
Wingers – Speed, Passing, Shooting, Puck Control
Centers – Shooting, Speed, Passing, Puck Control
Stamina is an attribute that you should look at before every player bid. Try to always bid on players with a minimum of 70 stamina.

Other things to check when bidding
Don’t forget to check how many bids the Player has. If it is lots then you may have to put a good bid in but if it is only one or two then you may be able to get a bargain. Not that defensemen tend to have a lot of bid, it’s because computer controlled players will bid on these but put in minimum bids the defensemen.
If a bid is tied then the team with the lowest manager rating gets the Player. If you don’t get the player then go into waiver Market History and look at your unsuccessful bids. Here you can see how much he cost and then click on him to see where he went.

Note that new need credit to bid so here how to get credits.
Top ten way to get money in shl

Extra information :

Players Age
Should I just bid on younger players? I did notice major difference between young player than older player. Some say that younger players progress faster during training. But other say they can be a little irresponsible and tend to have more AWOL. Older players can be more reliable, but they may not respond to training like a young talented player would. Then again, some older players respond very well to training because they have never had a good manager before.

Promotion and Relegation/ Changing Divisions

If your team is really shit and your division is to strong, it can be a good idea to switch for a lower division and build a team from the lower end by wining playoff and division title. You have the option to switch during the first 5 game weeks to Join a Division. If you select that option, it costs 500 credits and the Manager leaves his old team and players and takes over a new team, in the Division chosen, with players that are already on the new team’s roster.

That all for the guide hope you’ve enjoyed it.

I was feeling old school and I decided to bring out my old nes and play a game that really loved then Destiny of an Emperor.

Destiny of an Emperor is old NES RPG game (made in 1989) that is based on the Romance of three kingdoms novel.


It’s not the actual story of the Luo Guanzhong’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel since you control Liu Bei and is general and you can actually take down the Wu and wei Kingdom.


So for you fan of Clash of Kingdom and Three kingdom online, I think you will love that game. You will see all the good old general from the Three kingdom Area.


I don’t know if I’m going to write about it but if you want to check some walkthrough you can check lord Yuan Shu site for there review and walkthrough of the game :

Peng Guo created this web comic about the story of the three kingdom but on is own view. Zhang Fei like Mc Donald, Cao Cao have a duck hat and the Red Hare is a red hare… Some might be a little offensive or be NSFW but there are all awesome.
