Rise of Civilizations: Beginner's Quick Tips

Choosing Your Civilization or Faction

   - Any civilization can be effective depending on your playing style and if done right. Here are some tips that you might want to consider when choosing a civilization to play with. Note that these are just my opinion and is limited only to the ones available during this review.
Rise of Civilizations Germany


   - This is my personal favorite because it is cavalry based with fantastic bonuses for your cavalry units. Overall it's a powerhouse faction because of it's faster troops training and increased Action Point regeneration, allowing you to fight (faster XP) and/or farm (faster resource gathering) much better early on.
   - Germany's Commander Hermann is kinda lacking though but still usable early game.


   - Rome is a great choice if you like playing with infantries. Overall, bonuses are mainly focused on your infantries' defense, marching speed, and more.
   - Rome's Commander Scipio is also a great unit for attacker type infantries with defense and speed bonuses.


   - Japan is also a great choice that  can increase all of your troops' attack, a good buff for all around use. Abuse your scout's increased marching speed to map out the world a lot faster early on while gathering some freebies.
   - Their increased troops training capacity is also a nice touch for casual players that doesn't have enough time to login and play.
   - Japan's Commander Kusunoki is a decent unit to start with.


   - Britain is nice choice for players that prefers an archer based civilization, bonuses are focused on archers which is good, but there are some not so useful bonuses like wood gathering speed and 20% increased ally garrison capacity though.
   - Britain's Commander Boudicca is a decent unit and also a great jungler (good at dealing with Barbarians).


   - China is also a nice choice, a civilization that focuses on almost everything, like a jack of all trades. It's increased building speed is a great buff that could help you progress faster, while its Defense buff can reinforce your troops to survive longer.
   - China's commander Sun Tzu is an awesome unit for early game, would highly recommend focusing on infantries with him.

France, Spain, and Korea

   - I haven't tried them personally but based on observations and comments from experienced players, these 3 are the least popular civilizations because of their limited bonuses.
   - Still playable though as long that you know what you are doing, but for beginners, I would recommend the above civilizations instead.

Commanders and Their Roles

   - Commanders can be used for gathering resources, fighting, or for defense mode. You can check your commander's passive attributes (Leader, Support, Gatherer and more), together with their active or passive skills, to give you an idea on how to use them effectively.

How To Unlock Your Second Commander

   - The commander's number of Stars determines his or her maximum level and skills that can be unlocked.
   - Once you reach Lvl 20 and upgrade your Commander to 3-Stars, you can unlock a Support Slot (set it up while setting up new troops, check the new slot next to your commander), where a second commander can be selected to aid your leading commander in battle.
   - Note: Your second commander's Talents will not affect your army, so it's better to only focus on their Skills instead.
