Join an Active Alliance

An active and powerful alliance is necessary for you to be competitive in King's Throne. Early servers usually have a couple of competitive alliances, and mid game or end game servers usually only have one alliance that's ranks high in events.

Top alliances usually have Kingdom Power (KP) requirements, so it helps to be as powerful as you can as early as possible before you submit an application for high level alliance.

There are many events which have an alliance component or are alliance based. For example, alliance tourney score and alliance championships require the entire alliance to work together to take down other servers and alliances. Ranking highly rewards very well.

It's wise to have a small stockpile of gems so you can put those to work during events with the best reward. For example, most primary events have a "limited offer" section for you to spend gems to gain an advantage over the competition.

There is often one or two packages that are very valuable in the limited offer section, or very high value items for gems. It's helpful to do a cost analysis of how much value you are getting per package, relative to gems spent.

Optimizing on package purchases for limited offers are critical to ranking high in an event without breaking the bank.

In addition, common events often offer the opportunity to spend gems to make further progress, like Picnic or King's Pass. Sometimes it only costs a few hundred gems to boost you up 10 ranks or get a particular reward you need. Having that extra gem on hand before an event ends can make a big difference.

In the offers for the event pictured above, we see that first package offers 1 heart card for just under 288 gems, whereas the last one offers 4 heart cards for 2688. This means 672 on average for 1 heart card.

If we wanted to optimize the event for maximum heart cards, we should focus on the packages that have it for best value first.
