1. What is Arcane Battlegrounds?

Arcane Battlegrounds is a free-to-play online strategy game inspired by Arcane Legends. The game features direct links to Arcane Legends, and Gustav will play your tutorial guide! Fun right?

"Arcane Battlegrounds lets players take control of hearty Warriors, brutal Trolls, and fire-breathing Dragons to defend the citizens of Arlor against a tyrannical ruler. Through strategy, cunning, and courage, players will build a kingdom, raise an army, defeat enemies, and bring peace once more."

2. What can you do in Arcane Battlegrounds?

Arcane Battlegrounds has a few distinct features as to what you can do in the game.

For those to BaB, There are two main modes to the game. You can play through the storyline and plot of the game by building different structures, or battle other players Kingdom. The story allows you to complete goals.

Form an alliance with your friends to support one another with troops and resources, ensuring victory on and off of the battlefield.

Play with Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime™ – Android and iOS players from around the world compete with each other on the same network.

3. Is the game out now? (iOS Status)

The game is currently available for download on all Android devices as an exclusive, with iOS release in the coming weeks.

4. Game Options

If you have played Battle Dragons or Battle Command, you will understand the interface, and how it works. For new players, I have taken the liberty to post what the buttons do.

On the top right, you will see your name you have chosen for your Kingdom to be called. This will prompt after the tutorial. Clicking on this tab will show you a list of available options.

Battle Log - The Battle Log can be used in order to see what players have attacked your Kingdom recently. These will show on the Attack's battle log. Your defences will show on the defences tab.

Mail - The mail feature will make more use later on in the game. The mail feature allows the player to send boosts, messages, and all news will show here as well. You may be asking, what is a boost? A boost is an enhancer that will make building times and troop production times reduce. Boosts can be applied at any time. Players can visit other Kingdoms to send these.

Alliance - If you have joined an Alliance, your alliance will be listed here. You can start an alliance for 50,000 coins, or join an existing alliance for free. By pressing on join an alliance, you will see all the alliances made by players. Once you've seen one that you'd like to join, select it to view current members, then you can request to join the alliance, or report the alliances name. This will go straight to spacetime support.

Google Play - Selecting this will allow you to sign into an existing google account. This will allow you to save your progress so you can move from device to device and play the existing Kingdom you have created.

Friends - You can currently log in via Facebook, which will allow you to send boosts, shorten build times, and join allies with other players.

Achievements - Arcane Battlegrounds features an achievements system. You can check these whenever you want to see if you are close to a goal or not. For example, the first achievement is to complete up to a specific story mode level. Others include upgrading your gold mine, mana mills, upgrading buildings, unlocking troops, removing obstacles, destroying a specific number of enemy buildings, and sending or receiving boosts. The game is very expansive in a sense that you can go back to these mad claim platinum from completed achievements.

Settings - The Settings Menu allows you to tweak settings such as sound and music, moving buildings and a notification toggle for certain aspects. You can change language, access help and support, or sign in with Google.

5. Where can I find more information about the game?

6. How can I keep up with content and client updates?

Update #1 - http://www.spacetimestudios.com/showthread.php?157095-Content-Update-5-29-2014

7. Are there any starting strategies I should use?

It is important that you don't break your 3 day shield (the newbie shield)! You will be vulnerable to attacks and you will start to lose your resources.

Use the 3 day shield to build gold mines and mana mills. Also, increase your storage capacities for gold and mana (by building gold and mana storages).

At the end of day 3 (the last day of the shield duration), build up your defences. Build cannons and fire towers, they build up quick and you'll have enough time to upgrade them to lvl 2 or 3.

One thing I forgot, do quests while you have your shield. You will make easy money and learn how to use your troops efficiently.

After your shield expires, try to focus on getting enough gold to upgrade your castle. The upgrade will provide you with a lot of useful stuff to build, such as more cannons and fire towers + one more waypoint.

Wage war! Earn trophies and bring destruction to enemy bases.

Nicely done Skeletonlord. You have invested time in this and it shows. I gave you a "thumbs up" because you deserve it. Also, I would like to add a few things.

A friend of mine asked me for some tips on how to build up his base. This is the original message I sent to him:


Hello! Nice to see that I'm not the only PL forumer around here. I will give you some tips on how to build up your base fast and efficient.

1. *Note: This tip is really important, it will help you progress.

Don't break your 3 day shield (the newbie shield)! You will be vulnerable to attacks and you will start to lose your resources.

2. Use the 3 day shield to build gold mines and mana mills. Also, increase your storage capacities for gold and mana (by building gold and mana storages).

6. Wage war! Earn trophies and bring destruction to enemy bases.

That's all from me, enjoy the game :)

Ty for mentioning me in your guide, it means a lot to me.

Also, I would like to add a reply to my friend's thread. It's from Maalice and he wrote:


Here is another valuable tip: with ur newbie plat buy a peasant house!!! This is a must!!! Then either buy or free offer ur way to another 1000 plat and buy another house, then, and only then, buy the new hero pack. If u buy the pack before the 1000 plat house ur fourth house will cost 2000.

This is really useful, I have totally forgotten about this. As Maalice said, this is a must. Could you add it to your guide?

No problem. Still needs a little work here and there (still need to explain chat, build and menu options!). Anything else you suggest?

@ShoneX Great find again. Will update as soon as I can. I am pretty busy tomorrow but I will soon! :D

You might want to add that this game requires IOS 6 and above, so first gen IPad users are SOL.

You can't sign out. The thing is that iOS uses game center, while Android uses Google+. The developers said that you can't go from iOS to Android. But you can use Google+ to login on any android device (your base will be saved). And use game center to login on any iOS device. But as I said you can't go from android to ios.
