The Battle List

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:44am

The battle list is where you can find opponents who are currently actively playing the game. Everyone you see on your battle list is either currently active, or they've logged in within the past few minutes.

All targets on your battle list will be within your hit range.

I’ve been banned from forums! Help!

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:44am

If you've been banned from forums, it's probably because you violated the RoC or ToU. When you get banned, you will get a notification from kaw telling you the reason for your ban and possibly some guidance about the length of the ban and appeal procedures.

If you've been banned, DO NOT create a thread or ask a friend to make on on your behalf - this will only make your situation worse. Your best bet is to send an email to support@athinkingape.com to ask for clarification and find out how to reverse the ban. Most bans can be appealed within about a month, so you'll have to wait until your appeal period is over before you can submit a request to reverse the ban.

When you send your email, be sure to include the game and your username. Write clearly and use proper grammar. Explain what you did wrong and tell the support staff why you think the ban should be reversed. Be nice. Be courteous and respectful. If you've been banned from forums, you don't have the right to have the ban reversed - it's up to the discretion of the support team whether to reverse it or not.

Only send one email and wait patiently for a response. Sending repeated emails will only delay your response time, and in some cases, will result in your email address being blocked by the support team, so be careful!

Sticky Threads

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:45am

Q What is a sticky thread?

A A sticky thread is a thread that the moderator and support team have determined are of the utmost value to the KaWmmunity. They are "stuck" at the top of each section of forums for quick and easy access. Players should become intimately familiar with sticky threads to ensure they master the basics of the game.

Q My guide didn’t get stickied. Why?

A There are many guides posted by players. Not all guides will make it into the sticky section. Typically, only guides that are relevant to the vast majority of players will become stickied. It's not that your thread isn't useful - it's just that it may not be useful to ALL players. Sticky guides also tend to be formatted and worded very well. Spelling, grammar, BBCode, and formatting errors will reduce the probability that your guide will not be stickied.

Also, if you make a guide that has already been made, chances are that it will not be stickied unless it includes information that is not available in the currently stickied guide. If you want your guide to be stickied, make sure it is something new that hasn't already been done and that it is relevant to MOST players.

Defending Against Much Bigger Kingdoms

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:46am

There is a large stat ratio that players can hit each other. Sometimes it works in your favor where you can hit someone much smaller than you. Other times, you may be getting hit by someone much bigger than you. This is how the game mechanics work, and you will need to find a way to defend yourself. Complaining about this in the forum, WC, or other players will likely make your situation worse.

For some words of advise, find the section of this thread that talks about the basics of defending yourself.

Finding War Clans

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:47am

    System War Clans

The top system war clans can be found by going to the "leaders" menu and then selecting "view top clans." Then look at the clans listed under Prestige. Prestige is a measure of the number of wars a particular clan has won.

These clans will typically have subclans you can join that will train you.

    Off System War Clans

These clans are a bit tougher to find. And because of changes in alliances and loyalties, they can sometimes become amorphous, meaning their members spread throughout KaW or form an entirely new clan from which to fight.

Other clans let their members roam freely throughout KaW until it they are engaged in a war, at which point they may choose to come back together at a central home clan. Two clans that are notable for this technique are Black Hand and LSA.

A few amorphous alliances exist, such as the OMETS and Assassins Guild, who never fight from a central clan during OSW with the intent to prevent their opponents from being able to easily target the entire group or knowing how many members they have.

Many OSW clans have formed massive alliances over the years that may be known by another name, such as ZAFT, Apocalypse, oG Alliance, Umbrella Corporation, YA_Jugement_FI, and WDGAF. These alliances span multiple OSW clans that include feeder clans and banks. They typically have forces that number in the hundreds, and some even have thousands of warriors.

Here is a short list of OSW clans. This is by no means an exhaustive list. This is just a short list of clans that I have noticed making a name for themselves in WC and forums. In other words, these clans have a public reputation for OSW.

These clans are in no particular order.


  • iG
  • Foxes
  • No Bully Network
  • VooDoo
  • Knights of the Fire Emblem
  • Zodiac Alliance Freedom Treaty (and any clan whose name starts with ZAFT)
  • Regulators
  • Heart Of Gold
  • Wrath_Of_God
  • -ProTake-
  • LSA
  • Assassins Guild
  • OMETS
  • The Outlawz
  • .Alpha.
  • Defenders of Asgard
  • Divine Regiment
  • Last Rights
  • Taka
  • Black Hand
  • A B A N D O N A L L H O P E
  • You Ask For It
  • ___JUDGMENT___
  • YA__JUDGMENT__FI
  • True Spartans
  • Warriors of the Ancient Realms
  • -WiG-
  • -WiT- (Whatever it Takes)
  • I.S.S (Insomniac Smash Squad)
  • Chaos Reborn
  • Forty Six and Two
  • Sicarius Noctis
  • New Age
  • LOS (Lords of the Shadow)
  • _RCA_
  • The HiT Squad
  • Fury
  • X Factor
  • RESILIENCE
  • VR1

Off-System War

Postby Imitation-Cheese on Jan 18 2014, 2:47am

Q What does OSW mean?

A OSW stands for Off-System War. This means any type of war or battle that takes place under the control of players and occurs outside formal game system matchups. There is no formal declaration, and there are almost never any clear winners. These wars typically end up with both sides agreeing to a mutual cease fire to end hostilities.

OSW has no time limit, and they can last as short as a few minutes to as long as several months. No, single OSW has lasted longer than one year as of the writing of this post.

Q What does tracking mean?

A Tracking is when a particular kingdom is monitored to determine what time their lowest level of activity occurs. This is done to prepare for a full strip of the target and can take several days, weeks, or even months, depending on the target.

What does stripping mean?


Q What does CF mean?

A CF stands for cease fire. This marks the end of hostilities between two opposing forces. CF agreements are usually made in private chatrooms between the leadership of both sides.

CF agreements typically come with conditions by the winning side, such as hiring allies for war reparations, disbanding of clans, kicking of a particular member, and/or disbanding of clans.

Individuals can also sometimes request personal CFs if they no longer wish to participate in the OSW or surrender due to overwhelming attacks by the opposing side.

Q What types of CF are there?

  • Personal CF - as described above.

  • Mutual CF - as described above

  • Full surrender CF - this rarely happens, but when it does, the losing side is at the mercy of their opponent for CF terms and conditions.
