Conquer the world for King and Country in this massively multiplayer online real time strategy game (MMORTS).This is an online real-time strategy game (rts) where you are an officer in the army or the navy of one of 25 different countries during the Colonial Era. You build your army and navy while climbing the ranks, getting stronger and stronger. Once you rank high enough you can unite lower officers (other players) and fight huge online naval and land battles to attack one of the other countries trying to conquer the world.
This army and navy battle game is a long running massive multiplayer real-time online strategy game (MMORTS) where you are part of the national and international military balance and politics. Your goals are first to improve your own army and your navy, but also to defend the territory of your country and make it the leading power in the world.
It is a time of change. Through the dawn of time great empires and kingdoms have risen and fallen. Weapons of war have been improved over and over again until mighty ships filled with cannons sail the seas, the first rifles begin to replace muskets and new artillery has been made. Revolutions throughout the world have shaken most nations and though most nations remain monarchies in one form or the other, those of normal birth are now given the chance to take up arms for their nations. Not just as soldiers or sailors, as cannon fodder, but they are given the ability to become officers on land and on sea. Where the revolutions in arms development and cultural changes had brought forth a weakness and emptiness in the armies and navies of all nations, brave new officers come forward. Officers from all classes of society, to fight for their nation on the stormy oceans and seas, to fight on hills and mountains, along the coasts and in the desert. These officers have come forward to claim their destiny.
As a new officer you get the choice, will you join the armies that march on land or the navies that rule the seas? Whatever you choose a path filled with fighting awaits you. You'll get money from your king or queen to finance the recruiting of your first troops, the building of your first ship. The seas and lands are dangerous, even with no enemies invading, and through accepting a lot of missions you will gain gold and prestige, allowing you to climb ranks and afford more and better troops and ships.
But a time will come, often too quickly, that enemies of your nation strike and you are called to defend your nation. Join bigger armies, led by the highest officers and fight alongside dozens to hundreds of other officers in mighty land battles, join strike forces to capture lands and cities. Or join the mighty navies, to block enemy ports, raid coastal towns and secure the naval trade of your own nation. With your army or your naval forces you directly influence the outcome of battles and the fate of your nation.

A serious bug occurred after an update that was supposed to fix a minor bug. This however had such big impact that it was necessary to restore a backup of the game database. The game therefore has been restored to the backup of last night (around 1 am).
Our sincere apologies for this event, but we feel that under the circumstances this was the most fair solution for everyone.
Players with a vip-account have their status prolonged with one day.
Next age will be played only on the maps of Asia and America,
Also, there will be some unit and ship type changes. Take a look in the FAQ to see what exactly changed.

Next age will see some significant changes to the game:
Also, next age will be random joining, but after that the ages will alternate between random and free joining.
- Merchant ships: they are given a random destination on creation and you get gold when you sail the ship to this location.
- Part of merchant money is taken as tax and distributed daily over all navy and army officers.
- Non-paying players also get two invites for random joining
- Convoys/Squadrons: fleets are split up in two types, convoys which can not attack and can be created by any officer and squadrons which can be created by sr post captain and higher and which can attack. Convoys can have up to 8 ships and squadrons up to 5 ships. Transports and merchants can not be part of squadrons, only of convoys.
- Medal for best merchants
- 85 skill crew for sale
- Ships built in foreign harbours only 1.5 times as expensive (instead of 2 times)
- Ships in own harbors NEVER defend in city attacks. Ships in foreign harbours defend if they are at war with the attacking nation (as before)
- Forts aim better.
- Smaller start garrisons, but increasing faster
- Less calms/storms and wind direction has less influence on sailing
- Transports less wind dependant
- navy players start with 50k gold instead of 25k gold
- Dukes can play as pirates, but only till 50% of the country limit.
- Ship stat changes (announced later today in FAQ)
- Army unit stat changes (announced later today in FAQ)
- Blockade bug fixed
- When random joining back to old country you are allowed to leave it again.
- Change to the seabattle defender 'AI', so that the defender may board an attacking ship
- Defending ships can capture ships in boarding if they have an owner with free ship spots and hometown set.
|Congratulations to British Africa, winning age 20 of KnC. Also congratulations to Nascar_Fan for winning the army rankings, El_Conquistador for winning the navy rankings, neko for being the best army pvper, PiratesInAge21 for being the best navy pvper and El_Conquistador for joining most SFs |
|Banners King and Country|
|We have made some banners for King and Country. You can use those banners for linking to the site.|
|Congratulations to France, winning age 19 of KnC. Also congratulations to Pablo_Escobar for winning the army ranking, KROPLIS for winning the navy ranking, lothar for being the best army pvper, vaups for being the best navy pvper and trampie for joining most SFs |
|Downtime on 14 november|
|We have some downtime due to a server moving to another location on november 14th. Planning is around 7.00 game time until 12.00 game time. During that time playing isn't possible and ticks do not count.|
Congratulations to Canada for winning age 18 of For King and Country! Also congratulations to Matrinards for winning both the army and the navy individual rankings! He is the first in KnC history to achieve this! Other congratulations go to lothar for being the best army pvper, dead for being the best navy pvper and having most fp and trampie for joining most SFs.
Next age will have some changes:
- Easier training for army grey ranks
- Change in the way fp works: fp gained becomes equal to SBP gained in a battle, but fp is reset when your country dies. Admiral promotion will be decided purely on fp, so no minimal fp and no distinction on cm levels. The fp medal will be removed.
- battlepoints given from a minimum of 100 BP (400 defeated soldiers)
- pikebonus back to twice the melee damage of the pike unit rather than just once.
|Please note that on KnC countries are only allowed to have one ally and that friendly wars are restricted accordingly. If countries are having friendly wars/alliances with more than 1 other country we can change the status of these wars to real and ban the person who declared the war or in extreme cases the HC of the country who declared it. |
|Congratulations to Spain, winning age 17. Also congratulations to ClayQ for winning the army ranking, Matrinards for winning the navy ranking, puruz for being the best army pvper, nick33 for being the best navy pvper and having most fp and zeta for joining most SFs|
Congratulations to Russia, winning age 16 of KnC. Also congratulations to Riggae for winning the individual ranking, BabyYates for winning the navy ranking, mirjam for joining most SFs and XxfirexX for being the best army pvper, best navy pvper AND for getting most FP!
Next age will have:
- About 30 starting countries
- Random joining. Paying accounts can take two invites with them BEFORE joining a country.
- Garrisons to 150/100/80
- No pirates for now.
This age will end tonight at 20:00. Next age will start tomorrow at 20:00
The age end will from now on change to a system like on "The Last Knights" where the number of remaining countries decide the age end. Nobility ages will be changed to months, so the duration of your nobility account doesn't depend on age lengths any more. There will be no refund of nobility for the early age end because the minimal 3 weeks promised for an age of nobility has already passed.
Next age changes:
- Variable age end, 4 days after only 3 countries are left or 24 hours when only 2 countries remain.
- Maximum of 7 ships defending in a city battle. This should change the fact that even the strongest defended cities can easily be defeated by a strong fleet.
- Less countries. I'll try out starting the age with only 12 countries. All the cities on the world map are divided between these countries. This means countries start with 40-70 cities and 60-70 players. The countries will be China,England,France,Holland,Japan,Kingdom of Congo,Ottoman Empire,Portugal,Russia,Spain,Sweden and United States.
- You are allowed to have only 1 official ally. Unofficial allies can't and won't be checked by admins but we count on fair play from the players and of course it won't be tolerated to end fighting with more than 2 countries remaining. Only wars with your official ally can be set to friendly and people can't be CMed for hostile actions against a country you have a real war with.
- Possible unit/ship stat changes
- Hardcap of 21% on healers
- Higher garrisons (250-130-80)

Next age will start tuesday at 11 am and will see quite a lot of small changes, mostly to the navy side of the game.
Provisional list of changes
- small change to the ship strength formula, removing the +1000 to the hull
- small changes to almost all ship stats so that as many ships as possible fall withing the 0.7-2.0 range of each other
- no fp for pvps onships/fleets with 8 or less guns
- change of the hit chance and board chance formula to make sailors and sailor skill more important in battles
- change of the ranking formula to make gold less and ships more important
- make graping less efficient if there is less crew on the ship (harder to hit people if there are less left)
- attacking a playing pirate will be a pvp and attacking a non-playing pirate a training battle
- blockades working for pirates
- sell ships you are on (even at sea, returning you to where you last embarked)
- sell ships when you are in a battle (but not ships participating in a battle)
- Larger shipyard capacity
- Crew improving slower
- New ship types: clippers, proas, sloops of war as special country ships
- 2 special ships per country
- Battleships (large ships of the line) of 90-104 guns, decided randomly when you buy one (no standard) for 18 million gold. You can only build a battleship if you don't own one already. Available to all countries.
- 2 new special events in battles: guns can be destroyed and a ship can lose a mast, greatly decreasing it's speed.
- HC can move and attack with the army lead by the leader
- Training harder at Lt Col/Col/Brigadier
- Reset the sf counter after death/suicide
- new country: Korea
- Coming as soon as it's coded: moving your own ships when you are not on them, not sure I'll manage to finish that before the age starts though.
|Age ending sooner|
The age will end 3 days earlier than planned and end 26th of march at 11:00
|Payment via Moneybookers accepted as well|
|We now also accept payments via Moneybookers. Go to the nobility page for details.|

Also congratulations to livioara for being the best army player with a huge lead over the number 2, to pecky for being the best navy player, Jewness for being the best army pvper, Chainz for being the best navy pvper, Pluto for joining most SFs and polomaxcom for having most fp.
Next age changes:
- Change to the winds algorithm:
- Wind can stay the same for a maximum of 4 ticks (with only minor changes to speed) , like it was now
- When the wind changes a "bad" wind (less than 0.6 or more than 3.5) always changes into a "good" wind.
- When the wind changes, it always changes at least 2 points in direction.
- Some ships stats changing
- Garrisons can't be bombed any more
- different joining system that gives more value to higher ranks than the current system does while balancing
because this is kinda experimental I might change the balancing numbers mid-age if the system turns out not to balance well.
- Larger sea squares in Africa, Asia and America
- Army unit stats changes
- New storage system of units, making (army) battles a lot faster, but with the few minor changes that are already on TLK now.
- Ships with less than 28 guns will never fight in city attacks
- You can join as a pirate (navy-only and extra-hard)
|Congratulations to Portugal for winning age 7. Also congratulations to Krogzar for being the highest army player, MICTLANTECUHTLI for being the highest navy player, Zeta for being the best army pvper, axi for being the best navy pvper, mirjam for having participated in the most SFs and Murcielago for having most FP.|
Next age changes:
Age 8 will start thursday at 19:00 and end friday 2nd of March at 11:00
- Sr Post Captains and higher can only command their own ships.
- SOTLs will be buildable all over the world
|A summary of changes next age:|
- Some unit stats changed
- Some ship stats changed
- Soldiers can build 4 ships, Knights and Dukes 5
- Knights and Dukes can save up healing turns from their carpenters/medics/sailmakers. They get one HT every tick (just like normal) but can save them up to 4 if they don't use them that tick.
- Knights get 10% more crew, Dukes 20%.
- You can add your ships to other peoples fleet, even if there is no player on your ship to do this for you.
- Fixed promotion levels to Jr Post Captain and Commander (dynamic seemed to be only annoying and had no visible positive effects)
- More admirals
- The way cities are defended from a naval attack changed a little:
+Forts always defend the harbour.
+If the forts alone are 3 times as strong as the attacker, no ships are called up to defend
+If the best 5 ships/forts would still only be half as strong as the attacker, no ships are called up to defend either and only the forts fight.
- FP changed a little: You get fp for defeating a city if there are ships defending. You then get 1+nr of participating officers fp points. You still get 1 fp for every officer participating in a won pvp.
- SBP for city attacks: For every ship you sink you get half the number of guns in SBP for your country (not for your own pvp ranking). For capturing you get 1 time the number of guns. Both are half the amount you/your country gets for a pvp at sea.
- SBP for bombardments: For every 10 injured soldiers belonging to a player, your country get's one SBP. Bombing garrison doesn't give SBP.
- You can't pvp ships stronger than 2 times your own strength (was 3 times)
- Hired post-captain takes, just like a playing post-captain, no longer a crew spot.
- Cities don't go neutral any more, even if they are cut off and don't have a harbour.
- A list of top 10 navy players on fp and top 10 army players on number of SFs is added to the stats page.
- Bug fixes:
+fleet pvp points should work now, you should get points for every ship sunk/captured, whether you win, lose or tie.
+Fleet leaders who lose their admiral rank should become Commodore now
+Crew should desert again when you have no more gold to pay them.
+When a transport sinks, the army officers go to a real random city and don't get an error message any more.
+Solved a possible balancing issue at the start of the game
+cap on the number of pirates fixed, this didn't work, so the number could grow unlimited. Now there can be max 1000 on the map, as it was meant to be.
|Congratulations to Kingdom of Ethiopia, no one could stop them in conquering almost half of the world and gaining a huge lead over even the very powerfull Malagasy. With number 3 Holland, the whole top 3 are first-time medal winners.|
Also congratulations to lucc for being the nr 1 ranked army player, dragonfire for being the nr 1 ranked navy player (after previous big time leader genius died in the war), Zalastra for being the best army pvper, *cough* Vinnie *cough* for being the best navy pvper ;), Puffie for joining the most SFs and Vinnie for winning in the new category most fp (catching up with countryman Kajara in the last hours of the age ;))

|Medieval TLK Beta|
|The open beta for medieval TLK will start at monday, 1st of januari at 20:00 game time.|
This game can be found at: http://www.lastknights.com
|For the first time in TLK/KnC history, an age is won by a dead country! They have the most points though, so congratulations to Kingdom of Congo for winning the age posthumous. |
Also congratulations to Skyscrapers, being the best individual army player, Saggi as the best individual navy player, DariusTheGreat for being the best army pvper, dead for being the best navy pvper and Eagelsnest for joining the most SFs.
Next KnC age will start friday 22th of december at 11:00 and end Saturday 13th of januari 2007 at 21:00
Next age changes:
- Ship of the lines made weaker
- You can attack weaker targets till 70% of your strength rather than 50%
- City attacks where the defence will be less than 70% of the strength of the attackers go directly to bombarding, so schooners won't defend against liners, and liners won't have to work through the schooners before they can bombard.
- Neutral ships don't fight in city battles (only ships that are in a real war with the attacker)
- Army unit stats changed
- Crew manament tool added on the My Ship page that can add or remove crew by typing a number, and remove all crew from a ship in 1 click.
- Selection added on the crew page to make manual crew management easier (still usefull if you are picky about which exact gunners should be on your ship)
- Hardcap on the promotion xp for commander and jr post captain (resp. 1000 and 2000 xp)
- FP (fleetpoints) added to decide who becomes admiral. You get FP in pvps and city attacks (one FP for each player participating in the attack). This is to stimulate cooperation and give the admiral ranks to the people playing for the country rather than those training by themselves.
- Only level 1 playes get admiral ranks
|Congrats to Egypt, winning age 4 of For King and Country. Also congratulations to Stinky for being the highest army player, Saggi for being the highest navy player, Zeta for being the nr 1 army pvper, axi for being the nr 1 navy pvper and Trampie for joining most SFs.|

|Zygomatic launches online photo editor|
Zygomatic launches an online image and photo editor: Onlinephototool.com. Now it is very easy to edit, save and share your pictures and photos online.
|The Navy pvp ranking was reset because the pirates turned Algerian and thus counted for the pvp ranking. Sorry for the inconvenience.|
|Congratulations to Uruguay, winning the 2nd age of KnC. Also congratulations to akroma as best army player, Milfeulle as best navy player, Fatih_The_n00b as best army pvper, Bergules as best navy pvper and Trampie for joining most SFs.|
Age 3 will start saturday at 20:00 game time, and end sunday, 5th of november at 12:00.
|City attacks after bombardments|
|There still is a bug when you attack a city with an SF directly after a bombardment. If you attack from the land, this will result in "city under attack" for 15 minutes, if you attack from a ship it will result in your SF getting sent back to a random harbour of your country.|
I still haven't managed to find what causes this. It doesnt happen all the time and I have a feeling the chance is less if you wait for 15 mins, or till at least 1 tick has passed, but I'm not sure. I will not restore any bad effects caused by this bug, so if it's not necessary don't bombard the garrison before your SF (bombarding players seems to be ok)
|Database from last night restored.|
Due to a powerproblem with our hosting centre, the database was corrupt and we had to restore the database of last night. All registrations of new players of today are lost, so if you registered today: please take your time to re-register.
|There was a reset a couple of minutes after the start because the balancing of countries didn't work. Sorry for the inconvenience. It is quite possible that you will not get in the country you were before since some countries had far too many players.|
|Age 2 changes|
|Only a couple of changes for next round:|
- No limit on the number of fortresses in a city, but each next fortress in a city is twice as expensive as the previous. This starts with player-built fortresses, so the standard forts do not increase the price. Only standard fortresses respawn.
- Nr of ships you can build is increased. Knights can build 3, and Dukes 4, soldiers can still build 2 ships. The total limit of ships is still 5.
- Every player can build/own one transport ship (transport or war galleon) on top of the normal allowance. Extra transports do count as normal ships. This means that players can still build a transport even if they have already 5 ships.
- Ship stats changed for some of the standard and special ships. Big ships have become more expensive.
|Congratulations to Kingdom of Benin, playing very active all age and escaping 4 or 5 countries in the end. Probably one of the first times this country survived the first week. Also first places for Polytechnic in the army ranking, Wynelee in the navy ranking, Robin in the army pvp ranking, Vinnie in the navy pvp ranking and Duppie in nr of SFs.|
Next age will start friday at 12:00, there will only be a couple of changes, which will be announced later today.
Age 2 will end on friday, 13th of Oktober at 20:00
|Age 1 end|
|Age 1 will end on thursday, 21st of september at 12:00. KnC ages will be a little shorter than TLK ages because I feel it will do the game good (less burden on HC for a whole age, more interesting game in the beginning) if the ages are shorter.|
Ages will last 3 to 4 weeks, and the end is known at least 3 days in advanced (though I might experiment with announcing the end time already at the start of each ages)
This might mean that the age ends when according to TLK standards it's not really over (as in there are still many real wars). That is on purpose. I think the game should be not so much about survival (and thus having most allies) as it should be about collecting as many battle points as you can in a certain period (lessening the need for many allies so that you have something to do).
People with Duke/Knight account will then pay for 4 ages instead of 3, people who already have a nobility account will get an extra age.
Age 2 will start after a 24 hour break.
|Thanks to all who participated in the beta age. A lot of bugs have been found and I've got a lot of ideas to improve the gameplay.|
Congratulations to highest army rank NW_Sim, highest navy rank Vinnie , best army pvper Bigpwner, best navy pvper Kajara and most active SFer duppie for their prestations in the beta age.
Some of the changes after the beta:
- Transports are now blocked also by ships they are not at war with, but not by allies
- xp formula altered so that you get really a lot more xp from fighting with larger ships
- People can own only 5 ships through capturing, if you board a ship and you already have 5 ships it's sunk and you receive the selling price for it (rather than half of it when you just sink a ship)
- Captured ships always go to the owner of the capturing ship, not to the captain.
- You receive a message if you or your ship fights in a battle (except when you yourself do the fighting)
- War Junks are no longer transports
- The whole country get's a message when a war is started.
- HC is limited to 4 people, but there's a War Council added that can have unlimited members. WC can't do diplomacy, but can do all the rest that HC can.
- I'm sure to forget some, and didn't mention bug fixes.
|Age 1 start|

Only recent news
|Age 1 start|
|The first real age of For King and Country will start on September the 1st.|
At August 26th, there will be age 0: a beta-age for everyone to join, try out the new features, find the worst bugs, mess up badly and such ;) Registration will open up a day before the start of the beta. All accounts from the previous beta will be deleted, but from then on they will be kept, so age 0 players don't have to re-register).
For King and Country is the successor to the popular game The Last Knights.
It's a massive multiplayer strategy game where you experience the 18th century warfare from the point of view of a single officer in the army of one of over 50 countries competing for world dominance. In For King and Country, the wars take place not only on the land, but also at sea. Ships of the Lines, Frigates and many other ships will meet in epic sea battles, supporting the land armies wherever needed.
