Dogs of War Online is a free multiplayer online game focused on tactical turn-based battles in a tabletop miniature wargaming manner in the universe of Aarklash, based off the board game Confrontation and Aarklash: Legacy from the same developer. In the fierce rivalry between the Light (humans & mages), the Darkness (undead & unholy) and the Destiny (inhabitants of Aarklash), you will start your mercenary company and fight over reputation and riches.
Turn-based battles are in the center stage of Dogs of War Online and the primary mode is to duel other players. Careful planning and a good knowledge of your units are the first step down the path to victory. Because of the Army Point system you can’t simply pick up the strongest of different roles but need to strike a balance between each unit’s cost and utility in battle. Use your limited points and create a team with the best synergies – that’s the first layer of strategy.
Once on the hex grid battlefield you have more to handle to crush your adversaries. It’s a part of tactics to work the environmental objects to your ends like taking covers behind obstacles and seizing advantageous checkpoints. More importantly, you need to work out an attack plan and adjust it with the ongoing battle situation to give the proper tactical order in using unit skills and effects like stun, fear or debuff and choosing battle stances to be defensive or aggressive for each turn. You can fathom into great depth of tactics and relish battles where you win with surprising moves, planned or stumbled into.
In addition to the multiplayer skirmishes you can also send your mercenaries to do solo missions. The greater the risk, the heftier the reward. With cash and exp earned through battles you level up to access more units and can also upgrade and evolve them to be stronger forms.
With its polished graphics and truly tactical battles Dogs of War Online is a wonderful game if you love virtual miniature wargaming.
