What are Alliances?

At some point in time you might find yourself getting attacked by someone more powerful than you in King’s Empire. This is the time to either create or join an Alliance to defend yourselves or expand your empire. To join or create an Alliance, you must have the Embassy. Once you have this, you can create or join an Alliance with just a few taps. If you’re the Alliance leader, you can send messages to all members to coordinate attacks and make plans. Another way to stay in touch with your Alliance is to use that Alliance chat. To access this area, just tap on Chat and then navigate to the Alliance chat using the button at the bottom.

What are Gems?

As you begin to reach higher levels in King’s Empire, you’ll notice that upgrading buildings and training many soldiers at once begins to take a long time. Gems can speed up or entirely eliminate this upgrade period and serve this purpose. If you’re under attack and can’t wait hours for soldiers to emerge, use gems to get them immediately.

How can I type emoticons in World Chat?

You might occasionally see other players communicate in World Chat with emoticons and wonder how you can use these yourself. It’s quite simple, here’s how it works: you first must download the “emoji” app from the App Store. There are paid and free versions but the free version will work fine and achieve the same effect so we recommend grabbing that.

Once it’s installed you’ll have to reboot your device, and then you’ll be able to switch languages whenever you input text on your device (by tapping the globe icon) and switch to emoji. From there, simply tap on the emoji that you want to input and it’ll appear.

To switch back to ordinary text input, just press the globe icon and you can quickly jump back and forth between regular text input and emoticons. This doesn’t only work in King’s Empire, but in any iOS application that support emoticons.
