5 Years of Forge of Empires!

Can you believe that Forge of Empires is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year?
We went through many ups and downs and achieved numerous milestones since 2012. We would like to thank you for playing Forge of Empires and for supporting us during the last five years :). We’d also like to extend our special thanks to all of the regular forum members who constantly provide us with feedback, as well as supporters and moderators, who helped make the community what it is today :).

Below, you will find some funny statistics about the game:

As we are in a celebrating time, we will launch our first contest in the blog! The first player who can tell us in the comments when the game was launched exactly will win 500 diamonds! (don’t forget to put your player name and your country in your comment), good luck!

  3. Hi, I am hoping this message reaches a developer directly. Are there any plans to optimize FoE to use less memory and system resources? How about reducing the load of images+features so that the “eternal bar of death” is less of a problem? Last night flash was using almost 4 GB of RAM on my system and I was only running Forge of Empires. It is a huge problem and I hope to see it get addressed at some point. Thank you.

      1. Good evening. I also am unable to log back into this great game. I started playing about a month ago in the US (East Nagatch?) on my cell phone. It has started acting up, battery not holding a charge and I want to upgrade. I didn’t register my account w. Google or Facebook and have been playing as a guest. I tried to register my account these past two days but the app closes each attempt. I am no longer allowed to play as a guest. I believe that your customer service link presumes that the players have successfully registered their player names/emails. Can some please one contact me so we can save my progress and link my name and email address?

  7. Please forgive me. My previous post was incorrect. Please do not take it into consideration.

    The EN server started on April 17, 2012.

  10. Happy Birthday and thank you for the brand new royal garden. :-)

    The polian (or polish) server started on 3rd May 2012.

    1. Hi Hega,
      The DE winner is already picked up, but if you play in the PL market let me know :)

  11. Boa noite,

    Sei que o assunto é outro, mas não sei como chamar atenção do idealizadores e responsáveis pelo jogo Forge Of Empires para um problema existente e que venho mencionando há vários dias, semanas…

    Eu andei excluindo edifícios na minha cidade pois sempre que estou com alguma atividade abre outra janela com edifícios que não solicitei.

    Acabei por excluir um edifício premium e ao apelar para o suporte, eles dizem que lamentam e que nada podem fazer, e atribuem o erro ao jogador the king is dead.

    É justo?

    https://forum.br.forgeofempires.com/index.php?threads/erro-nos-pontos-forges.18146/page-2

    1. O Fato que gostaria de citar é que ganhei 500 diamantes aqui ao responder em que dia e ano o FOE iniciou em meu país.

      Alguns dias depois por conta de um erro (bug) eu acabei por excluir um edifício cultural premium e tive que pagar 600 diamantes.

      Muito injusto, pois trata-se de um erro claro em que manifestei reclamações mesmo antes de ocorrer comigo.

  12. Is there any plans to reduce corruption by the moderators and the forum allowing ideas to reach the developers that allow normal players to not have their game controlled by others
    Many in game forum ideas have not been passed on due to allowing game players to moderate and be bribed by their in game friends

    1. Hi,
      Thank you for your comment. Be aware that the game can’t implement all the players ideas. We took some of them but we also have our own team with a roadmap so if your team don’t pass some ideas it’s just because they know that the change can’t be made :).
