With every free-to-play FPS game comes a set of rules unique to it, and Crowz is no exception. Though the game isn’t all that different from other shooters, it has a few of it’s own gimmicks to keep in mind while playing.

Basics of Crowz

In Crowz, you take a role of a mercenary deployed into different hot zones in order to collect the game’s unique resource called Q-on. Your main goal is to gather enough in order to summon the Evac Helicopter. Of course, this also happens to be the goal of every other player on the map – and there’s only so much Q-on for everyone…

Game Modes

The game has two modes – Squad Operations and Blood Zones. Squad Operations, despite their name, focus less on teamwork, dumping you into enemy infested territory where you’ll have to gather Q -on yourself. In Blood Zones, you’ll play as a part of a squad, fighting to capture specific Q-on extraction points.

Gathering Q-on

The Q-on come in two forms – there are solid ones, that can be picked up, and those in form of a gas. The gaseous ones need special eq2uipment to be collected, and this process takes time, which might require you to protect your position.

After gathering enough Q-on to summon the helicopter, the game’s still not done. Every player will be alerted, and the one who ends up getting in the helicopter wins the match, so expect a violent fight if you’re trying to get out with your loot.

Capturing Command Points

In the Blood Zones mode, you’ll be fighting over two types of command points – rectangular ones and circular ones. The rectangular points can be captured any time and give more Q-on, while the circular are less profitable and can only be captured at specific moments during the match.

Fighting for Survival

Before deployment, you’re given a chance to customize the equipment of your mercenary. Choose the types of weapons that suit your playstyle, but keep in mind that these are only basic pieces. Better equipment can be found on the maps, and it comes in a few colors, indicating it’s rarity. You’ll also have limited inventory space, so don’t be afraid of discarding common items in favor of rarer ones,

Vehicles

You’ll also find some vehicles on the map that can give you an advantage over other players. Some of them, like tanks and helicopters, are particularly powerful, with no way to damage them using conventional weaponry. You’ll need tactical equipment, such as sticky bombs and rocket launchers to deal with them, but in most cases, the best course of action is to avoid confrontation with those entirely, by sneaking pas them.

These are all the basic information you’ll need to understand the general rules of Crowz. Of course, as you play, you’ll probably come up with your own, advanced strategies, but these few simple tips should make your first contact with the game a little smoother.

Shameful display!

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
