    "No doubt he'd be the best commander for the majority of the Rise of Civilizations playerbase, hes the poster boy for the game ffs! I also like the fact that he specializes in cavalry since cavalrymen are important as you level up and you find less uses for infantry so kudos to this. 👌"

    "Unlocked this commander a week ago and I have to say, the guides were right in saying that Martel is one of the best rise of civ commanders. His defence is impenetrable and can let you stay locked in a defensive position for a longer time"

    "when playing rise of civilizations, i prefer to take on the enemies from afar and pick off the stragglers with my melees soldiers so i have to use a commander who can be devastating with bows and arrows. yi seong-gye is fun to use since half the enemys are already down when they get to my position."

DID YOU KNOW?

All Sid Meier's Civilization games have been exclusive to PCs? That's expected of an epic game of this size. It's best played and experienced on a big screen like a computer screen. That means that mobile players are a little left out at such a great game. There have been many games that have tried to replicate it. None have reached the level of polish and experience that Civilization games have. That is until Rise of Kingdoms by Lilith Games released on mobile platforms in 2018. This game aimed to bring the "civilization" game experience to the mobile space.

Rise of Kingdoms is a new real-time strategy game for Android and iOS devices. It features 11 Civilizations to choose from as well as 34 Heroes or Commanders to call to aid in your battles. The entire game takes place in a single huge dynamic map where all players and NPCs come together. This gives the game a seamless feel and a sense of continuity. You get the usual base-building and resource-gathering mechanics, typical 4X game elements. What sets the game apart are the commanders based on real figures throughout history. With this many to call upon, it's up to you to choose the best commanders in Rise of Kingdoms best suited to you.

    "Basic commander thats pretty balanced in attacking, but an absolute beast in defending points. fun to use against an aggresive opponent esp when you see his increasing frustration in being unable to beat back your defenses :D"
