The 10 Worst Mistakes You’ll Make in Game of War: Part 1

1. You Forgot to Put Up a Peace Shield

Brushed your teeth? Check. Put your kids to bed? Check. Switch to resource production gear? Check.

Set a peace shield so that you don’t get attacked while you’re offline…


2. You Tapped Too Soon

Relax your fingers before speeding up your research, or your click a 30 day instead of a 3 day.

3. You Attacked Someone You Shouldn’t Have

You’re new to the game and you just attacked a random person in a random alliance because you felt like it.

Later that day you received a mail for someone 100x more powerful than you saying, “WTF you attacking my alliance members for?! You better run and hide and hope I don’t zero you!”


You didn’t know what “zeroing” was so you felt curiously threatened and a little afraid.

4. You Didn’t Research

You spent all your time and resources training troops, only to have millions of troops destroyed from one solo attack.

Here’s a tip: no enemy can destroy research, so focus on that.

Knowledge is power. – Francis Bacon

5. You Didn’t Login Yesterday and Missed Alliance Gifts

You received 13 ruby gifts, 9 platinum gifts, 17 great heron gifts, and world turtle gift yesterday.

Oh, the random free stuff that could have been yours…

6. You Attacked Blind

Look at that guy at a measly 300M power. I think I’ll solo him…

OH SHIT he ate my whole march!

7. You Attacked Without Resetting Your Skill Tree

A troll keeps sending one troop marches at you, so you decide to burn him real quick.

You send out your march and go back to business as usual, but when you see the attack notification and check the enemy stronghold you realize it’s only smoking and that you forgot to reset your tree…

8. You Port Away from an Incoming Rally

You were new to the  game and thought that you could escape the rally by random teleporting away.

Nope… now all your troops have vanished and your stronghold has tiny dead soldiers in it.

9. You Forgot to Use Resource Reduction

Your 50% upkeep reduction ended right after you want to bed early, so you woke up to billions of food gone, and your food inventory blinking red.

10. You Crafted in Defense Gear Instead of Salvagers

You knew you were forgetting something after you pressed the craft button.

    You activated your best core set while taking a screen shot to show your teammates how good it was! (typical android users mistake).

    1. Ravey says

      Did that last night with full set of zeus. Was trying to put 7pc set bonus on. Was so excited to finally have set bonus I lost my mind. I had been zeroed and was under a 30 day shield so couldn’t even use it!

  4. Rodolfo Capetillo says

    Got all those T-Shrits, damn.

  5. Lu says

    When you are farming and send 7 marches out and the last march has hero, but don’t realize a big ported wearing frostbitten cores in on you because your troop screen is up while in Hermes gear, and you send that last March….. Ain’t for it BOOM screen turns RED alert, alert WTF hit every button but the right one just to see a good portion of your meat in beds and dead smart move note to self check the map big guy even the bigs can get touched

  7. Rick says

    You didn’t delete the GOW app immediately after installing it.

    1. eric-h. says

      I remember the first week I played, an alliance member posted that he had killed too much time and after four days of playing decided to quit. Years later I still think about him and wonder what-if that was me?

  8. Maketo says

    A) You switched to cores while the rally was a minute away…and they canceled march, or B) you try to wait until rally is closer before popping cores and turns out they started in Hermes and have already lit you up. FAIL X 2

  9. IB Mick says

    On a similar vein, starting L10 March research without switching to research gear. 10,000 days to go…tick…tick…tick

    1. Awesome456 says

      You can cancel research lol

      1. IB Mick says

        True, but at a significant penalty in RSS . It’s still downright embarassing

        1. Wilson says

          Use speedups. lol

  10. Miss Plague says

    Need a part 2 for this….

    1. Mfkn Kaos says

      “You tapped too soon” Happens a lot to me.
