Lords Mobile combines open-space MMOPRG, strategy, and world-building mechanics. Its gameplay consists of several game modes. the most notable of which are PVP-battles. Players should develop their own base and build an army in order to attack enemy bases, destroy them, seize resources, and capture enemy leaders. Usually, players can attack only enemies from their own kingdom, but during the Kingdom War , all servers are opened for attacks (excluding new servers which protected by shields). Players can attack monsters and other world bosses that periodically appear on the kingdom map in order to claim resources from them. In addition to the usual attacks, players can participate in contests, the purpose of which is to capture a location on the map, earning bonuses to either his or her profile or the guild he or she is a part of:
Wars for Wonders;
The game also has several additional gameplay modes:
Heroes Trial – PvE-mode, the player fights through a series of challenges using unique Heroes. Completing the challenges can earn the player new Heroes, Hero experience, and materials for Hero equipment.
Colosseum – PvP-mode, the player, selects up to five Heroes and fights against another player’s preselected Heroes. Victories result in Hero experience and higher position on the Colosseum ranking. The game’s premium currency, Gems, is awarded to players based on their rank.
The Labyrinth – PvE-mode, the player can challenge a boss in order to claim various resources and speed-up items. On occasion, players may earn a jackpot of Gems.
Attacks and defenses in the game require developed tactical and strategic thinking. The player should not only know which heroes to take into battle, what ammunition to wear, but also be able to make quick decisions that are correlated with the current situation. Capturing locations (f.e. Wonders) requires in many respects the coordinated action of several players of one guild.
Players can join or create guilds in order to collaborate with other players regardless of location. Guildmates are able to assist their allies with build time and research time. They can also earn rewards for their allies by defeating world monsters and making in-game purchases.
