Can someone let me know when we can expect to see the game "Stormfall, age of war" , as advertised?


I would rather see what it has to offer over this game,because they surely are not the same thing.

I know Plarium would not partake in deceptive advertising, as they are trying to increase the player base. So I can safely assume this is an upcoming update,,, perhaps for the new year upcoming???



Edit: I did find the ad again and followed the link,as suggested by another player.It does indeed go directly to Stormfall pc/net game start/login page. Not for facebook, android, or any other such place.

I would like to see the level 32. Interesting use of graphics though.

I think this is an idea from someone with artistic talent. If you look at Sparta the do change the appearance of buildings at certain levels. This would be a great incentive to level up troops just to see what they can look like. Notice stat and armor changes as well.

so it is false advertisement then?

it looks like archers get a health points bonus at lvl 24.  the defense bonus turns into a raid bonus, melee attack 45 turns into melee attack 85 and the potions/alchemy,  i did not even know we had potions/alchemy, goes up by 20.

developer funds at its finest.  new content always good for an lol.

i checked the acc of a friend his pikes are lv 29 now with the discription of the advertisement his pikes should look different now or any big changes in the stats. But they look still like the normal pikes and all what changed are the that the basic stats are higher for the higher lost art lv.

You are correct. Like I said earlier, I like the idea and a player spent a lot of time being artistic and showing how things COULD look different.

Artistic venue aside,,,This is what Plarium uses to entice new players,, and wonder why  they can not keep newer players....

They simply do not get the game advertised...

With the exception of alphas and a few betas, I always find actual gameplay of games I may consider playing. Had I not been in TD and had to go off of descriptions and artwork,, expecting such,, I would not still be playing this game.

Simply put, if I clicked on a banner link to play the game, and had none of the content in the banner advertisement,I would never return to the game, and can not blame others if that is the expectation.

Meanwhile on Steam they made it so all screenshots from games in the store need to be actual ingame screens and hot concept drawings and such :p

i guess it is not that much of a big deal 


it is not like they advertised a car and ended up giving you a horse 


the only thing missing is the change of units appearance on higher level ( and we all agree that the female archers are better 


and yes maybe the stats are far from accurate but still there is an increase for each level 

I'am me and that is what i care about :)

the concept of the dark hairy archer with fewer clothes is not new the wall paper exist very long. But if you play you get a blonde archer.

That is still ok but i think the prob is that all Plarium games in basics they are equil but you have still other mechanics. In Sparta the buildings change with the lv ups, in Nords you have fighting animations...

Maybe it is that Plarium lost what they have in which game and now they try to make it equil in all games and that works a quite bit worse. The performances are slow again, a lot of bugs ruin the fun part the list is long

YAP we don't have a male archer, because it all in the Lord of the rings, LOTR have male elves, not female, A female was introduced by The trilogy of the Hobbit, to avoid copy rights, and over paying on such. Even plarium is doing the same. they introduced female elves, and three levels of dwarfs(4)

I though think that instead of introducing more levels they should have introduced more units. 

Biohazard has killed the forum.

Hi! No, it's not a future update or something. In our games Units don't change visually when you level them up. Also, you need to use different ways to boost different stats of your Units. 

Those pictures are game banners that were created by artists to point out that you really progress in the game, and your Units become stronger with each level.

But it confused the customers if they see they get visual changes for lv ups and dont get them they are disappointed if they made the whole upgrading work and nothing happen like on the home page. And stats/features we dont have like the potions/alchemy. Plarium offer on their advertisement features the game doesnt have. If i want buy eggs and get mushrooms im not happy too.

In other countries its illegal to do this.

In a game like this, the visuals doesn't really mean much. Can compare the unit cards to like unit cards in total war series. They just for informative purpose. I think the "high" boob factor they got on marketing (add banners and the like), is worse. 


Games such as this is all about the gameplay, and sadly its lacking a lot looking at the big picture :(

Informative purpose right but they inform all on home page that archers have potions/alchemy do we have this ? No...

Is planned that we have this ? No...

So the informative purpose is wrong

It seems to be they got it a bit wrong though as they are getting more clothes as they level up. This seems very wrong and counter-intuative to rewarding you for progress :)
Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation
