    What the hell is this?? I cant fight warlord 3 or 4 anymore? Im high 70’s and my teams well oiled and capable. But now I have to play against pip squeak teams that get one shot.. Its not as fun. And once you take away the fun and the challenge. What do you have left?

    Anything below 100 and fighting on warlord 4 was probably because you were taking advantage of a game bug and didn’t know it. Once you build out a team that is pushing 6000 warlord 3 and 4 will fall with ease.

    There was a lot of bug patching in this last round, however there were still quite a few they thought they got patched that still are causing problems. Give it time. In the meanwhile save your diamonds and buy Dragon Armor. Once your money starts rolling in then you should be able to level up faster.

    How do I get the trophy for capturing 20 kingdoms? I’ve already captured 26 and I can’t get it to pop.

    Splash screen after a defeat or victory in PVP, Arena, and PVE story line on Xbox one will freeze many times. Occasionally the screen will freeze and timeout and only option is to quit game and reload. Please fix. Thank you much!
