Which civilization to choose in Rise of Kingdoms?

Choosing your civilization Rise of Kingdoms

Choosing one's civilization from the Rise of Kingdoms is no easy task. Should one prefer cavalry, harvesting, construction or anything else? This guide to the civilizations in RoK will help you compare them to make the best decision.

Comparative Civilizations in Rise of Kingdoms

RoK gives you no respite. As soon as you arrive in the game, you'll have to make a first strategic choice that will determine how you start the game: choose your civilization in Rise of Kingdoms.

After a few tries, you will have determined which style of play suits you best, but not all civilizations are the same in the field you are aiming for.

Comparative table

To assist you in this choice, I said to myself that confronting all civilizations in several categories would not be too much to ask. I have therefore prepared a small comparative table that highlights the strengths of civilizations.

Please note that this is not an accurate list of each nation's talents. You will already be able to find the detailed bonuses for each in the civilization choice menu in Rise of Kingdoms. In the area of troops and training, I've also included hospital and garrison abilities, as well as defense or attack bonuses for certain types of troops.

Advantages, specialities, what to understand

With this picture, we can see that China is the only one to really shine in building construction, whereas all other civilizations are equal in this field. Likewise, the United Kingdom and Spain have special advantages that enable them to face neutral units or barbarians more effectively.

Boadicea United Kingdom Rise of Kingdoms

Of the latter two, the United Kingdom still has the preference of the players at the beginning of the game because Boadicea is a good elite commander and longbow archers (special unit of civilization) can be useful. Spain is very specialized in cavalry.

If you don't quite understand what it's all about, just refer to the specialties in front of each name. Some Rise of Kingdoms civilizations focus on a specific phase of the game: the beginning, middle or end of the game. So I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you to take a look at our trick to change civilizations if you're not satisfied with your first choice.

Choosing the Right Civilization in Rise of Kingdoms

Now that you have a general idea of the points on which the strengths or weaknesses of a civilization can be judged, it is time to make your choice. Honestly, some civilizations are abandoned by players at the beginning of the game for reasons that you, as a new player, don't want to experience.

Spending tens of hours on an account that will automatically fall behind because of a bad first choice is very frustrating. And I think I can save you the trouble. So here's a little questionnaire worthy of a women's magazine with a few tips to guide you in this Rise of Kingdoms civilization choice.

When you start the game, you say to yourself:

  1. Attack!
  2. Let's go to new territories!
  3. What if I go farming to outsource my opponents?

PvP civilization specializing in the military

You chose option number one. You little stallion. If you're the type who wants to butcher anything that looks remotely like an able-bodied opponent, thenGermany is your best option, as isArabia with its special features.

These two civilizations work wonders in PvP or PvP. As a result, they are perfect for any player thirsty for blood and resources. I must warn you, however, that trying toattack players too early is a bad strategy. You will lose more resources in leading the assault than you will gain by stealing resources from your enemies.

Make the mist and villages disappear

Option number 2: make you the future Christopher Columbus of RoK. A budding scout e ager for new lands, that should please you. Japan offers a 30% walking speed bonus that makes this Rise of Kingdoms civilization excellent for all types of scouting. As a Japanese civilization, your goal will be to have troops exploring the battlefield day and night to clear the fog of war.

You will be able to quickly cross tribal villages to unlock economical technologies without spending anything or discover essential sacred places in RoK.

In fact, exploring the Rise of Kingdoms map can give you a good idea of what the game as a whole is all about and having a broader view of the gameplay will help you make better macro decisions for your future games. On the other hand, you might as well know that enemies won't be scared of you if you launch an attack against them.

The farming is beautiful!

You chose option number 3. Let it rain resources to grow your nation! It's France that's in the spotlight in RoK when it comes to farming resources. All players will tell you that. France is an iconic Rise of Kingdoms civilization.

In fact, it is a great starting point for your farmingaccounts to boost your main account. Knowing this, you will be able to easily identify which are the military accounts and which are only used to gather a maximum of resources for the war. Another excellent civilization for beginners is China, which has a unique construction bonus to rush your buildings.

In the end, it all depends on the style of play you want to give to your start. I don't say "to your entire game" because you have the ability to change civilizations in RoK, even after the game is well advanced.

Now you know which civilization to choose from the Rise of Kingdoms. Let the game begin!
