    and note to BB puII ur finger out and spend some money might make me change my views but atm settIers onIine sucks thumbs down

  2. Sylvia thinks this game suxs

    1. You talk in the 3rd person, therefore your input in invalid. Sylvia go back to cave now.

      1. Hahahaha!!! The best reply I saw for a whille. XD It made me laugh for almost 15 minutes.:-))

  3. no offense but, browser based + farmville/cityville like display?, you know what’ll everyone think.

    1. ….”farmville/cityville like display?”.

      Perhaps…the general concept behind the design is similar. However, this is nothing like either cityville or farmville strictly designed to hack money off of it’s users on nearly everything you do.

      There’s a trading (barter) system in TSO that allows players to trade almost anything, starting from resources; goods all the way to the decorations and buildings.

      1. this is shit , shut up .

        1. We need more people like you in the world.


  4. Very easy game, good for beginners. Once youve mastered the one simple concept of the game, it is more about building your city then strategy.

    1. well when building your city you must look at the strategic aspects such as rescources there by being an RTS that requires a complex city build economy to back up the strongest of armies

  5. One of the most fun building games I ever played. Its easy. And the trading is boss!

  6. It is easy to mess up at the beginning, basically do not pay with gold when trading unless its a small purchase for the initial quest. Otherwise your going to be stuck with no gold because no one ever buys anything with gold because you have to be level 30 before you can mint coins.

    Otherwise it is a great stride away from the normal, click to upgrade something that takes days and have to pay to actually get ahead versions of these games and I would highly recommend it. Do not be ashamed if you have to restart :p

  7. Settlers online actually let you settle for more fun and excitement!

  8. There was games out before Farmville. Settlers goes all the way back to the Amiga, 1993 actually so any crap like farmville is just a clone.

    I dont norm play these sort of games but I gave it a shot and its actually pretty decent and yea the trading does rock. just save your gold for upgrading buildins later on.

    I hate farmville with a passion but given the theme of this game and history it has I gave it a shot and so should others its not bad at all.

  9. whoa what a bunch of useless commentsm bloodly trolls if you have any other suggestions stfu, anyone can complain,

    1. This is the review section not the Beta-Developers suggested improvements forum. People are just giving their opinions on whether or not they like the game. Calm down.

  10. i like this game , very interesting

  11. Hard to figure out how to play. I read many useful guides, but they were a bit outdated. Mostly, the quests had imprecise language, or too few words to describe what you have to do. The tutorial does not actually walk you through things. You have to puzzle out the quests yourself.

    At one point, I could not finish one of the quests. It just would not give it to me, although I had accomplished the quest. Without it, i could not move to the next step. I ended up stuck, and shut it down. Wasted 2-3 hours.

  12. good game , i love this game , seriosly

  13. It reminds me very much of Anno 1404

  14. I was a fan of this game until I had to deal with support..

    I had one bug while I was at max level (takes about 6 months) and their solution was to wipe my account and reset it to level 1; they also offered me junk compensation of 0.1% of what I had ..

    It would have been a fair game if it wasn’t for critical bugs to trow 6-8 months of gameplay to trash.

    1. LOL Sucks to be you!

    2. Absolutely spot on. The game itself is great and does not require cash to enjoy, you simply progress a little slower which is no problem as its not PvP. However it is glitchy and requires vast amounts of time to maintain and when you have a problem support basically tells you “tough, not interested” Which when this tosses weeks of gameplay in the bin the attitude of the support makes you so disgusted you walk away. I’ll never deal with Bluebyte again.

  15. nice game!

  16. i plyed this game for a while, and while it can be called an economic, empire building game, unless you love just hunting npc missions and hate the pressure of pvp this game is not for you. This game lacks pvp, while there is a certain strategy to the missions it is essentially a coiners empire building paradise.

  17. I played this game for 3 months, got to level 40, only kept playing that long because I thought it had to get better. It doesn’t. The ‘adventures’ are the same every time, and are full of unnecessary time delay. In fact the entire game is full of pointless time-sinks. Even the quests are mind-numbingly dull. Seriously, quests like ‘have your friends buff 5 of your buildings!’ or ‘But 2000 Granite from other players!’. No other way to say it, this game is utterly dire. Checked back there today, they are apparently coming out of Beta, but I stopped playing & deleted my account 3 days ago, & the game was still riddled with bugs at the time. Thank Christ I paid no money for it. My advice – stay well away from this tedious dross.

    1. It’s true, way too many browser-based games rely (cheaply & lazily) on completely unnecessary time delays. Most games are just a pretty website the developers are hoping you’ll throw your money at (to get ‘special’ items or faster upgrades). It’s a time-sucking money-grab.

  18. play the offline version, better of this game here and anno online

  19. u should all try battle dawn its better than this game and its true strategy game

  20. A fun throwback to the original, I have played quite a while but now quitting due to the luck element involved in adventures- often you spend days building armies and end up with nothing in the end if your luck is bad. Also the community is rather rude, and the moderators are ban-happy, banning players for often little to no reason. I think this is because its just volenteers the moderate instead of BB staff. All in all I would say its not worth your time guys, great system but poor overall execution. Might try battledawn as suggested above, or back to the amiga version.

  21. I would actually advise against playing this game. Having played for a little over a year I can say that the game has gone down-hill since then… especially in regards to global chat. With the implementation of the new MOD program players are now being discriminated against for being in a certain guild. Players are now being banned from global chats for asking why they are being warned by these new MODs. Many players were informed to send in a support ticket if they were having an issue, but when the ticket is sent in, the player receives no reply from support. It would seem that Support is no longer concerned with its paying customers, which is really very sad. I have seen more players leave the game in the past month than I have in the past 6 months… It has become apparent that UBI has lost interest in this game and is now letting it be moderated by people who like to play favorites.

    This game is a waste, don’t bother.

    1. Thx for your post Menely.
      Any better browser based RTS you can recommend?
