Is it possible to cheat in Rise of Kingdoms?
Yes, cheating is absolutely possible in Rise of Kingdoms using tolls such as mods, hacks, mod menus, bots and other game hacking apps in order to get more free gems, gold, resources, VIP levels and so on. There are ways to cheat in RoK on both Android and iOS, but usually there are more downloads available on Android.
Hacks are ways to modify or extend the code, memory or data sent by the client that allow for users to gain an advantage in Rise of Kingdoms. The most common ways of doing this are hacked clients also known as ‘mods’, game hacking apps which are available for both Android and iOS and sometimes packet editing, which is the manipulation of information sent to the Rise ok Kingdoms game servers.
Features included in the most popular hacks may include speedhacks, automated building and farming, troop hacks, automated defense and resource saving, auto raiding, damage hacks and more depending on the version and build of the Rise of Kingdoms game app, the OS (Android or iOS) and what hacks are possible at any given time based on server vs client side processing of data. However, cheats or tools for unlimited gems, gold, resources and VIP level are sadly impossible, since that data is stored on the Lilith Games servers exclusively and cannot be modded using any means.
Modding is by far the most easy and convenient way to use hacks in Rise of Kingdoms. Since a mod is basically a version of the normal RoK game app that has been tinkered with to run cheats by default and therefore can simply be downloaded, installed in place of the original game and played just like the normal game. However, some mods will require you to change some system files and while some will require no root or jailbroken device, others might. So it is important to follow the instructions included with the download of a Rise of Kingdoms mod when trying to cheat in this game, else one might we wasting their time trying to get them to work.
While modding is done on both Android and iOS mobile gaming platforms, it is generally much easier to find mods on Android (Mod APKs) than it is to find mods and mod menus for iOS. This is due to the fact that Android is easier to develop for and easier to install unsigned apps on among other reasons. To find working modded game clients, go here.
Scripts, Macros and Bots are software that is able to automatically play Rise of Kingdoms for you and farm goodies, such as gems, resources, gold, Commander Sculptures and others automatically without you having to play the game yourself. A good bot can save you lots of time, can play on multiple accounts at once, can automatically farm barbarians and players, auto scout and attack, build your city, research automatically and perform other automated actions in order to get you as little downtime as possible and keep you progressing through the game 24 hours every day.
Bots are the best way to get unlimited gems, gold and legendary commanders / gear over time, since actual generators or hacks for unlimited gems do sadly not exist, since Rise of Kingdoms is an online game. If you would like to learn how to set up your own bots for RoK, check out this tutorial. Or you can find working bots using your cheat finder tool.
There are other ways to gain an edge over other players in Rise of Kingdoms that are not quite as mainstream, readily available and obvious as mods, bots and hacks. However, these are still often used by the top players and in some cases are the reason why the best players in RoK are the best players.
Exploiting is a way of cheating that uses bugs in a specific build of the game or multiple builds in order to gain an advantage. The most well-known kind of exploit in online games is of course the duplication glitch that can allow for item duplication, currency duplication and so on. In Rise of Kingdoms specifically an exploit may one day enable infinite gems, resources, troops, legendary commanders and equipment, VIP level 20, item duping and so on. However, if such powerful exploits are ever discovered, they will only be usable until they get patched from the game and using them will very likely lead to an account ban.
Multi account play is of course something people do in almost every city builder online mobile game out there and is considered cheating in some and not in others, but multiboxing takes the concept to another level, allowing you to control 10, 20, 30 or more accounts all at once and is often used along with bot software in order to create whole alliances of bots and coordinate the accounts to dominate a server. While this is extremely hard to do and will require quite some know-how and resources, it is certainly possible and is being done by pro players in Rise of Kingdoms.
As in most mobile games you can also simply spend money and support the developers to get an advantage, but since that is technically a feature of the game, it cannot be considered cheating. Truly the best way to get unlimited gems, gold keys, legendary goodies is to simply have a high credit limit on your credit card. On a more serious note, you should support the developers of your favorite online mobile games, even if you are using other less convenient ways of cheating.
Mod menus are a very special and premium kind of mod that usually comes packaged with an ingame menu that allows users to customize and enable / disable individual features. Mod menus are the best of their kind and usually only available for download to people getting a premium subscription. However, very rarely free downloads can be found.
