I have played on five different realms. In all five realms the Chinese houses helped each other to get rid of the non Chinese houses. In all five realms the Chinese have by far the greater numbers, spend more money and in no time there are barely any non Chinese in the top twenty players. In all five realms the Chinese whales are unbeatable and take non Chinese cities one by one.
In my current realm, a group of people decided to try it one more time, resulting in us having control of Neferak. It started out real nice and we really thought we had a chance. Unfortunately, all Chinese houses have helped each other to get rid of the non Chinese houses in their kingdoms, carry the same flag, of course the top three whales are Chinese and have started to control the game. Except for Neferak, all king's are Chinese. We are in our third week and we are at the point where morale is low and continues to drop and we can safely say that again Chinese nationalism is ruining the game for all other nationalities.
Why do we even have an English forum? Why is this game available outside of China? I advice everyone not to play this game, don't give Lilith money, because the game is ruined. It is a great game with a lot of potential, but not like this. This game is even causing racism, because players are fed up with the Chinese and the Chinese are continually laughing at the foreign 'dogs.'
