Raven has been defeated! My mighty forces have crushed his evil ways, and his evil bird. And his evil beard. Really, the majority of Empires & Allies centres around the single player campaing. And now that I’ve finished it, now what?

Empires & Allies has finally implemented leaderboards! This is something I’ve been waiting for that I was hoping would make the game a little more competitive. Unfortunately, it is not done very well and actually makes the game worse!
BBGsite gives a quick overview of all the WW2-themed strategy games currently on Facebook. It’s not a great article, but it let’s you know what’s out there. Empires & Allies, Global Warfare, Army Attack, Battle Pirates… Keep Reading!
Let’s catch up on recent online strategy game news, shall we? First, if you didn’t feel my Civ World review was informative enough, check out the latest interview with Sid Meier over at Mashable. Anyway, after writing the review yesterday, I was inspired to play some Civilization V again. To my surprise, there’s now a prominent ad for Civ World right on the start screen!
Civ World is a gaming that I really wanted to like. Certainly Civilization has been one of my favourite series throughout the years, and even the latest version, Civ V, was brilliant. The main weakness of Civilization, in my opinion, has been the difficulty of multi-player. It still mostly relies on the players to organize themselves. By taking the game to Facebook, Civ World commited to fully embracing multi-player. Unfortunately, a lot of the original series’ appeal was lost in the process.
As always, more going on in the world of online strategy games than I could possibly cover. Let’s take a quick look at Empires & Allies, Civ World, and new servers for OGame and Lord of Ultima.
There’s nothing more annoying then logging in to Empires & Allies to see you have half a dozen invasions to repel before going about your business. However, I’ve put together a sure-fire defence strategy to make repelling those invasions as painless as possible, keeping your Empire safe and sound. Keep Reading!
There’s been a lot going on with OSG1 this last week, but I just realized there haven’t been any actual posts. So, let’s catch up!
First, for those of you who aren’t in Like with OSG1 on Facebook, you’ve missed a few links and updates which I’ll summarize for you here:
Travian just hit 400k fans on Facebook, which is cool. At the same time, Empires & Allies already has 400k. It’s interesting that there’s still such a separation between these two markets. Travian players have been playing browser games for years before Facebook ever showed up, and they haven’t really embraced Facebook. At the same time, the millions of Facebook users are just now being introduced to strategy games.
