KVK Season 1 & 2 Guide for Beginners

The first KvK seasons could be a little difficult for new players, with little experience or Free-to-play Players.

That is why we bring you this KvK 1&2 guide to achieve the best results in each of the stages during the 2 months of fighting.

What is KVK or the Lost Kingdom?

KVK or Lost Kingdom is a map that opens between days 85 – 105 of all the initial kingdoms for everyone to fight in a new map to conquer the Ziggurat.

Firstly, let’s explain some basics of the 1st and 2nd of KVK or Lost Kingdom:

  • KvK has a duration of approximately 60 days in the first season and 50 days in the second season.
  • Players need to complete the stage “Eve of the Crusade” first, which lasts 1 week, before being able to move to the Lost Kingdom map.
  • You can teleport your city to Lost Kingdoms once it is open, but the target location will be random within the territory of your kingdom.
  • Alliances of 8 different kingdoms will participate:
    • In the 1st season, the Continent where their kingdom is located will be the participant.
    • In the 2nd season, the KVK matchmaking system will begin, which is based on the power of the 300 strongest players of each kingdom.

How to Teleport to the Lost Kingdom Map?

To enter KVK, players must have the City Hall level 16+, this is the most important point to be able to access the map!

Once the map is open, you can find some icons on the right of the screen, giving you a lot of information as well as a series of tasks and achievements during the KvK.

Most Important Tips for KvK 1 & 2

  • Once you do teleport in KVK, you must always locate your city in the effective territory of the Alliance, thus preventing the enemy from attacking you directly. Guard the territories.
  • Rise of Kingdoms Hospital Building Improve the level of Hospitals to fight for much longer and avoid deaths due to overcapacity.
  • Save Resources, Speed-up, Peace Shield, Teleports, Troops Expansion and Enhanced Attacks / Defense. All of these items are super important for the fights here.
  • Spend all our daily APs killing barbarians or forts to farm Honor points.
  • Always gather resources on the map whenever you are offline as it also adds Honor points and resources are important for the war.
  • ancient ruins Do not forget to participate in each Altar or Ruin occupation schedule to obtain Honor and minutes that will add up to the “Crusader Achievements”.
  • Diplomacy is one of the most important things in KVK! It’s a must to coop with other KVK kingdoms in order to achieve victory. It’s impossible to win the KvK alone.
  • Participating in the schedules established by the kingdom to farm guardians in the Holy Sites! This is one of the best ways to increase the commander XP. Guardians in KVK give much more XP than the common ones of normal kingdom map.
  • Mighty Army As Free-to-play players, it will be difficult if you face P2W players with T5 units and well-geared commanders, so you must be smart when fighting to not get completely defeated in the Open-field.
  • Defend Garrisons and reinforce Rally only when it is necessary, since your troops will die in these combats and you don’t want to run the risk of running out of units. Fight with your best ability!
