You can train up to 20k+ units in a single training queue.

Do the training before the event starts. You can easily know when the event starts by checking the Event Calendar. Time it correctly so that you can collect the trained troops immediately when the event starts. That way, you will be ahead of everyone else and you still have 24 more hours to train troops and get more points!

  • Train a Tier 1 Unit: 5 Points
  • Train a Tier 2 Unit: 10 Points
  • Train a Tier 3 Unit: 20 Points
  • Train a Tier 4 Unit: 40 Points
  • Train a Tier 5 Unit: 100 Points
  • (Receive a Point Difference for Troop Upgrades)

Stage 2: Defeat Barbarians

Duration: 24 hours


It is always a must to use lohar Lohar or any high level Peace Keeping Peacekeeping Commanders you have during this stage of the The Mightiest Governor Event.

This is because they have the talent called Insight. It’s going to reduce the Action Point action point attack cost 10 attack Barbarians by 10. Isn’t that amazing?

In additional, Lohar could go a lot of extra damage to the Barbarians and Neutral Units, helping you make the most of every single action point.

Send all of your dispatches to farm Barbarians and always camp them after every attack as the attack cost reduces after every attack as long as you do not get back to the City.

Remember to always share the location of the Barbarians you are attacking with your Alliance members so that they can help you attack a lot easier and quicker. Everyone will get the rewards. Focus on Barbarians level 25 as it gives the most point, up to 3600 points.

Defeating Barbarians:

  • Defeat a Lvl. 1-6 Barb: 300 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 7-9 Barb: 600 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 10-12 Barb: 900 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 13-15 Barb: 1200 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 16-17 Barb:1500 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl 18-19 Barb: 1800 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 20 Barb: 2100 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl 21 Barb: 2400 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl 22 Barb: 2700 Points

  • Defeat a Lvl. 36-40 Barb: 5000 Points
  • Defeat a Lvl. 41-55 Barb: 10000 Points

Stage 3: Gather Resources

Duration: 24 hours


Tip: Before this stage starts, Send the join of joan-of-arc Joan of Arc and sarka Sarka to your Alliance’s Resource Center! And when they are about to return home, camp them next to your City. Do not let them in. Once the day 3 started, collect the resources from them and you will be ahead of everybody! You can reinforce them to the Alliance Flag to protect them before the Gathering day If you want.

Alliance Mother Lode gives the best start for the Stage 3!

At level 50 commander, you can gather up to 6M of resources or even more at one turn.

Joan of Arc has the Fresh Recruits talent which increases the maximum troop capacity by 3%.

The reason why you need to focus on the Integration path at the late game is because Joan already has a guy gather bonus passive skill. And you also just need to sit for a long time before collecting the resources.

To maximize the resources you could load, couple Joan with Sarka as she has the Lost Treasure skill, which increases the troop load up to 30%. Also, her last skill Short-lived Heroine increases the troop capacity up to 10%.

This combo allows you to bring tons of troops in just one dispatch.

If your Alliance opens a Alliance Mother Lode right before the 3rd day, you could gain tons of points. Gathering Gold gives you way more points than gathering other resources.

  • Gather 100 Food Food: 1 Point
  • Gather 100 Wood Wood: 1 Point
  • Gather 100 Stone Stone: 2 Points
  • Gather 100 Gold Gold: 5 Points
  • Gather 1 Gem Gem: 150 Points

Also if you guys want to maximize your gathering speed, make sure you get the runes for boosting farming speeds. So if I focus on gathering wood, I would get the Wood Farming Rune.

You also want to activate the enhanced gathering Gathering Speed +50% buff. You can get it from the Courier Shop, VIP Shop, Alliance Shop and some events.

In case you want to know, the Queen title gives you the gathering speed of 15%.

So if you’re gathering using the tip I showed above, I don’t recommend to gather it so fast because you need to make sure you keep an eye of it. If you know that you can keep track of it, get all of the runes and buffs but make sure you set a timer on your phone and make sure you go back to your game and before your commanders reach the City and then camp them somewhere else before the event starts.

Stage 4; Increase Power

Duration: 24 hours


Increase your total power to earn points! The total power can be found right on the top left of your screen!

  • Increase Troop Power by 1: 2 Points
  • Building Power Increases By 1: 2 PointsTechnical Power Increases By 1: 2 Points

A few days before the event even start, I usually upgrade two of the most power increasing building. And then use some speedups to finish them when the stage 4 starts.

Also, just do a Academy research right before the event starts and then collect it once the event started.

I also train troops constantly during this time.

So the key thing here is that if you’re in the higher stages of the game, your upgrading time takes a long time so upgrade them couples of days ahead. Time it to the time when stage four hits and then you will get the maximum amount of points for the research you can held off on collecting them. And also the troop training, you can also held off on training on collecting them.

Stage 5: Eliminate Enemies (Kill Event or KE)

Duration: 48 Hours


Kill or severely wounding to the other governors to earn points!

Now, this is pretty straightforward all. You need to do is basically battle. This is the whole point of Rise of Kingdoms anyway.

  • Severely Wound/Kill a Tier 1 Unit: 1 Point
  • Severely Wound/Kill a Tier 2 Unit: 2 Points
  • Severely Wound/Kill a Tier 3 Unit: 4 Points
  • Severely Wound/Kill a Tier 4 Unit: 8 PointsSeverely Wound/Kill a Tier 5 Unit: 20 Points

Usually, we have a skirmish mission that we attack the alliances we don’t like and sometimes we can be a mercenary, getting hired in by other Alliances like they are in a war.

We also usually have an exhibition. What we do is that we  have a spot on the map where we invite the other Alliances to come and do friendly battles to earn points together.

That’s something that you guys can do! Just be creative on it!

The other thing you can do is to attack the inactive players. There are a lot of inactive players at the late stage of the game! Just destroy them and get the points out of them.

Also, during the kill event, this is probably the best time for you to test your commanders. You can either ask the other lives players for a duel!

  • Train a Tier 2 Unit: 8 Points

Rewards

Here is a quick look at the rewards you could earn as being the top ranking governor in The Mightiest Governor. How crazy those rewards are?

The Mightiest Governor Rewards

That is why everyone is crazy about this event and everyone wants to get that top spot!

Every MGE is around a specific commander. During the first 5 MGEs, top players will get Lucius Caesar Sculptures. The next MGEs, players will get Charles Martel, etc. More details can be seen in the infographic below!

MGE Guide for Free-to-Play Players

For Free-to-play players, it is a bit hard to get in the Top 10 ranking to get the best final rewards, however, it is not an impossible task. If you prepare well, especially in the early game, it will give you a huge advantage over other players.

In this article, we are giving the most tips and tricks for F2P or Low Spender players on how to participate wisely in the MGE to earn a large number of Commander Sculptures among other rewards.

Which MGE to Participate in for F2P?

As F2P players, it is super important to bear in mind that the MGE is a very competitive event in speed, resources, and playing time, that is why you should not and cannot get involved in every single one of them! You will end up with terrible rankings while losing a lot of resources. And it is totally not worth it.

  • Participate in MGE that features commanders excelling at the type of unit you are working on (Infantry, Archers, or Cavalry)
  • The first MGE of any kingdom is the most difficult and you must skip it. It’s best to participate in the next MGEs, after the KvK 1 or 2, when you’ve saved up a decent amount of resources and speed. Patience is the key. You can just keep waiting for the perfect moment!
  • Most kingdoms establish rules for the participation of players. Adapt to them!

How to Participate in Each Stage of MGE Effectively

Troops Training

You only need to train or upgrade troops.

If you are dark age T4 players, we must have a certain amount of iron age T3 troops ready to upgrade them to dark age T4 to quickly gain many points! Each troop upgrade is essential in this stage.

feudal age T5 players obtain a greater advantage since the accumulation of points when upgrading dark age T4> feudal age T5 is greater. However, it consumes a certain number of resources and speeds, that is why we must choose when to participate, being dark age T4 or feudal age T5.

Use any troop training buff! Go to top Alliances, get runes from Holy Sites, ask for Duke’s Title and wait for the activation of the Kingdom Buff for troop training! All of this will help reduce the training time by a lot.

Take advantage of the MGE to train or improve your special Civilization unit since this is supposed to be your focus in terms of commanders and activities.

If the rules of your kingdom for MGE establish a limit of points per training, much better, reach it and you will have more possibilities to fight in the other stages that are easier for F2P.

Defeat Barbarians

Defeat as many barbarians on the map as possible.

This stage is very simple and straightforward. Everyone can participate and win the stage. You only have to defeat Barbarians on the map. That is why we recommend the use of the 5 marches and a certain amount of time when the stage lasts to defeat barbarians as many as you can.

Choose zone 2 or 3 of the original Kingdom to defeat only Barbarians level 24 or 25. They are the ones that accumulate the highest score. In KVK Season 1, 2, and 3 it happens similarly, the barbarians have a considerable score increasing according to their level, if we take advantage of this, we can get a lot of points.

Don’t forget to use commanders with the talent tree Peace KeepingPeacekeeping” or who is effective in “Chain-farming” like Aethelflaed Aethelflaed to reduce the consumption of AP and time!

Use runes and damage buff to reduce as many wounded troops as possible so you don’t have to return home to recharge the marches.

Once again, it is important to make the most of your Action Point Action Point Items for this stage by using them effectively! Perhaps taking advantage of some other events to defeat barbarians at the same time. If you want to obtain a good position in this Stage, you must spend many AP.

Gather Resources

Gold, a lot of Gold!

Before this stage starts, you must farm gold on the map or from the Alliance Resource Center in advance so they will return home right after the event starts and score a lot of points quickly. This is a great initial start that everyone must have to compete in the top ranking.

Gathering Gold all the time for the highest possible point! Have all of your 5 marches gathering gold on the map.

Monitor your marches carefully to send them out farming immediately once they’ve returned home to not waste any time! Activating the notifications or even alarms on your phone is recommended.

  • Tip: Don’t forget to use Enhanced Gathering Speed.

Increase Power

Build, Research, or Train Troops!

A few days before the event even starts, I usually upgrade two of the most power-increasing buildings in my city. And once this stage starts, I use speedups to finish them to achieve points.

Start doing Academy research right before the event starts and so you will be able to collect it once the event started.

You can train troops or upgrade them, only that spending speed and resources again is not recommended for F2P once we have participated in the 1st Stage.

Eliminate Enemies (Kill Event / KE)

Attack other governors!

This is the best stage to score points fast!

The kingdoms usually have some specific rules for this stage. However, normally when in KVK, players can freely make as many points as possible.

dark age T4 and feudal age T5 troops give a huge advantage here. As F2P players, it’s recommended to participating in open-field battles at all times. Do not attack any city, do not lose troops unnecessarily.

Fight to the limit of your capacity! Don’t exceed the hospital, resource costs, or speed. Be smart in your battles.

The Mightiest Governor  Final Sprint

All previous stages combined, giving points at a lower rate

In the last stage, we can add points via any way from the previous stages!

For F2P players, it is recommended to increase power through building or researching, so you can develop your city faster at the same time

Continue defeating barbarians or fighting in KE if the conditions of our reservations allow it.

Conclusion

This guide is focused on the best and simplest ways to participate in Rise of Kingdoms MGE as F2P players.

The most important thing is that you must know how to participate wisely because it is indeed very difficult ti win without having good preparation. Winning MGE guarantees you a certain number of incredible rewards.

Your moment will come!
