What do I get when I refer people to this game?
When you refer people and they become active players you will get some nice ingame bonuses. These bonuses are given the moment your referral enters for the first time the headquarters of some country.
You can receive a maximum of 5 referal bonuses per age, you get your bonus only one time.
What are the referral bonuses:
One free special unit:
Penguin (100 HP, 0 Str, 0 Rgd, 10 wage): 67% chance
Rocket Penguin (100 HP, 0 Str, 20 Rgd, 20 wage): 33% chance
You can hire 5 more crewmembers
It is (of course) not allowed to make multies and refer yourself. We will do an extra check on multies for referrals. On top of this, it is not possible to refer someone from your own ip adress. In this case they refer-id will be ignored.
How does the country leadership works?
There are 3 levels of leadership in for King and Country:
LD: The leader
The leader is the head of the country. He is elected by the people in the headquarters. To be electable as leader you must have access to the headquarters as a land officer (have privilege level 1 and be brigadier or higher). A country can elect a leader as soon as there are 5 players in the headquarters (brigadier or higher in army or Jr Post Captains or higher in the navy) out of whom at least 2 are electable for leader.
If the leader has a marshal rank (Vice Marshal or higher) he will get a custom leader rank. Vice Marshal becomes Warlord, Field Marshal King and Grand Marshal Emperor. These ranks can lead all other players in their army and don't have a wage cap.
HC: High Command
The High Command consists of at most 4 members, appointed by the leader. They help the leader in ruling the country. They can declare wars and form alliances. They can change the HC message and start court martials. When they are in the army of the LD, they can move the army and attack with it.
WC: War Council
They assist the leader and the HC. There can be an unlimited number of people in the war council. They have the powers of the HC, except for diplomacy (wars/alliances)
What are medals?
At the end of the age, you can win medals for your achievements in the past age.
There are 7 types of medals you can win for the top 3 places in:
Individual Army rankings
Army PVP rankings
Individual Navy rankings

How long does it take before I get my Knight/Duke status?
The Knight or Duke status will be activated as soon as Vincent or Bram has verified the payment. Bank payments usually take 3-5 working days. PayPal normally within a day unless it is an eCheck.
How long does an age last?
There is a variable age end; The age ends 4 days after only 4 countries are left or 24 hours when only 3 countries remain. After 21 days the age ends automatically though.
My brother/sister/roommate also wants to play for King and Country, can we play from the same IP?
Having more then 1 account on the same IP-address and computer is not allowed, but you can ask prior permission of an admin.
To ask permission use the contact form on the site to notify us that you intend to play from the same IP; include both your usernames. Then you will get permission to play from the same IP, unless we see a reason not to give it (at our discretion).
Not asking permission means there's greater chance of getting one of the two accounts banned. Appealing such a ban would be very hard, since no permission was given.
Is there an official game chat room or channel?
No, there isn't. Most countries do have a chat though; these are made and maintained by players for easier communication in the country. Those chats are not an official part of the game and it is in no way mandatory to join them, but it's always fun to be able to chat with your fellow countrymen and usually you'll be able to get some help or advice there when needed.
Is there a special mode for people who go away for a while?
No, there is no special mode (such as temporary account suspension or vacation mode) for people who go away for some time. You'll just have to make sure you have enough cash on hand (if you have negative income) to last the entire period.
After 3 days of not logging in to your account is marked 'inactive' and is removed from the game for all purposes (such as defending cities). When you get back you can activate your account again simply by logging in.
I haven't received my activation email, what do I do now?
It can take a while for the activation email to arrive (depending on a lot of factors). If you really didn't get it, check the following:
- Make sure the activation email didn't go into your junkmail/spamfilter/thrash.
- Make sure you typed your email address correctly (you can only check by trying to make a new account with the same email)
You can request game staff to manually activate your account by sending a message by the contact form in the menu. Please only do this if you are sure you typed your email correctly and the activation email wasn't filtered.
Why should I vote for For King and Country?
You don't have to vote, there are no benefits to your personal account, but voting is only two clicks (after this the message disappears until you can vote again) and it put's For King and Country higher in the rankings of rpg games on the site where you vote for us. This will make it more visible, attracting more new players to the game, which benefits all of us.
Why can't I post/reply on the Country Talk?
People ranked lower than Lt Colonel or Commander cannot post on the Country Talk or send mass messages. This is done to prevent low ranked people to spam all over the forum.
Also the Court Martial can remove access to this feature if someone abuses it.
Why can't I send messages to all in my country?
People ranked lower than Lt Colonel or Commander cannot post on the friends forum or send mass messages. This is done to prevent low ranked people to spam all over the forum.
Also the Court Martial can remove access to this feature if someone abuses it.
I'm Lt Colonel/Commander or higher. How do I send mass messages?
Go to Your Friend and select the players you like to send the message to and press search. You can select on City, Rank, Commander, Name, HC and Online. (note, Colonel/Commander and below can’t see the location and other info of a higher ranked player.
When you have the list of the players you like to send the message to, you scroll down. There is a post box for new topics. Next to that list is a drop down box to select what type of message this is. Select “Send to selection” from that list. If you like to send the message to all players of your country you can also select this.
I'm not happy with the country I'm in. How do I change it?
Your only option will be to commit suicide. When you suicide, your entire account will be reset, and you will be able to join another country.
If you also play navy, you also need to suicide for this character to change country.
What codes can I use in the HC message?
you can use normal text and a couple of html tags:
<font color="red">red text</font>
<img src="image web adress">
Do you have banners for the site?
Yes, you can find them on the banners page.
