Clash of Clans for Noobs
Clash of Clans has been around for a long time–2012 for the iPhone and 2013 for the Android platform. After the Super Bowl, the game became became ubiquitous on the handhelds of millions. The game became so popular tat by the end of the year it ha climbed the charts and was earning 1.5 million in revenue per day. Simplistically, the game involves a base, troops, and other players that you battle. Clash of Clans received largely favorable reviews from the major gaming magazines. Seems simple enough right? Here are some basic strategy tips to get you started if you’re new to the game.
If you are a fan of strategy games, you will know that some prefer defensive bases rather than bases setup to support early attacks. I focus on building a defensive network so that I have a backup plan if my offensive attack fails. Offensive that produce units are known as army buildings. Building a barracks will allow you to begin growing your army. Upgrading buildings allows you to produce more experienced units.
Defensive buildings allow you to contain and counterattack against enemy units. Constructing and protecting your resource buildings through defensive structures allows you to focus on your troops rather than allocating them to the defense of resource buildings. Depending on the gameplay and your opponent, you will often be in between the two rather than solely on the defense or always on the attack. You’ll certainly lose an entire army at some point, and all you have left are those lousy armed fortifications back at the base. At that point, I’m frantically building defensive posts so that my base isn’t overrun.
If the Town Hall Collapses, You’ve Lost
The town hall is the most important feature of your village. Since the town hall is the center of the village, if your town hall is threatened it’s likely that you’re uncomfortably close to losing the game. Overall, this game is very enjoyable, especially the fact that you can take it on the go and play wherever you have a few minutes to spare–no waiting until you get home to play this one. One of the biggest advantages to this game is its multiplayer modes where you can play along with friends. Just remember, if you are playing with other people n your team, please strategize.
I just wanted to provide a quick overview for those of you new to Clash of Clans, but there are plenty of other resources out there for you to learn even more tricks and tips.
