Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 Guide

In Rise of Kingdoms, the KvKs are probably the most anticipated RoK Events. Indeed, the PvP strategy and great rewards are a huge attraction for players. In this RoK KvK 2 Guide, we provide you with all the details you need to know for your first Rise of Kingdoms Season 2 KvK.

Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 Guide Summary

Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 has had a huge impact on gameplay since it was added to the game. It is the next KvK Event you will experience after your first RoK KvK 1 Event.

To help newer players, the developer, Lilith, has released a variety of additional immigration rules to ensure that players have a balanced Rise of Kingdoms KvK Season 2 experience.

Keep reading this Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 Guide for all you need to know about this awesome RoK Event.

When is the RoK KvK 2

After finishing RoK KvK Season 1, players will be in an off-season. During this period you can take part in other events whilst you await the arrival of RoK KvK 2.

The time you must wait for the arrival of Rise of Kingdoms Season 2 will vary depending on the other Kingdoms in your region. Each region is made up of a group of 8 consecutive Kingdoms.

Rise of Kingdoms Kvk Regions

Each Kingdom within your region must finish their RoK KvK Season 1 before Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 will begin. Typically, there are 60-70 days of resting before RoK KvK Season 2 comes.

What is the RoK KvK Season 2

Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 is also known as the 2nd part of the Lost Kingdom KvK Events. The first part the player will probably know as RoK KvK 1. To learn more about all the different KvKs, check out our RoK KvK Summary Guide.

Although both RoK Lost Kingdoms KvKs are quite similar, the player will likely have a very different experience. Firstly, players will now know what they are doing and be more competitive. Additionally, the mix of RoK Commanders you can use will be different.

Lastly, players from older Kingdoms can immigrate to RoK KvK 2 Kingdoms to take part in the event. However, in a March 2022 update, the developers tightened this up to give a more balanced experience to new players as with RoK KvK 1.

How Long is the RoK KvK 2

The Rise of Kingdoms Season 2 KvK lasts for 50 days excluding the Pre KvK.

RoK KvK 2 Kingdom Seeding

RoK Kingdom vs Kingdom Season 2 pits 8 different Kingdoms against each other as with KvK 1. However, there are a couple of changes here that should be noted:

  • A match making algorithm will be implemented and rank Kingdoms based on the power of the top 300 players.
  • Every 8 Kingdoms will then be arranged into a specific seed.
  • Player with over 150m power will be counted as 150m power only.
  • Hospital filling won’t affect the power classification. Only deleting/dead troops will reduce the power for match making in KvK Season 2.

Differences Between Lost Kingdom and your Home Kingdom

Regarding the map, the Lost Kingdom map is a new location where you will meet with 8 other Kingdoms following the match-making process. The Lost Kingdom map will provide players with will provide super buffs and new holy sites.

New Holy Sites include the following:

RoK Kvk 2 Individual Crusader Rewards

If you are struggling to kill enemy players for this achievement, it can be a good idea to do a T1 troop kill exchange players from the other Kingdoms. This is a very low-cost and low-risk method to complete this achievement. However, it must be carefully negotiated.

More Quick Tips for the Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2

Some more useful things to know in this Rise of Kingdoms KvK 2 Guide.

  • Your city is safe when you are within your territory (your alliance flag and fortress).
  • Your Kingdom will have the same colored territory and you are free to teleport within your Kingdom land. However, it is only when you are in your alliance‘s territory that you are safe!
  • Always keep an eye on your city’s safety, activate shield or teleport back to the safe zone if needed.
  • Using 5 marches in KvK is not always good. If your commanders and their equipment are weak, then you are feeding enemy!
  • Use your best marches to optimize your gameplay, save resources and speed ups.
  • Keep note of your hospital capacity, especially if it reaches 75/80/90% of its capacity. Overloading your hospital will result in dead troops, play carefully!
  • Be sure to set essential troop presets for your marches. This will depend on your current objective e.g., marches for Barbarian hunting, rune taker, YSG counters, PvP, etc.
