Great game, but a few changes.
Overall Clash of Clans is a very enjoyable game. I love being able to be in a clan with my friends and building it up will other good players. However, ever since global was taken out of the game, it has been much harder to find and get new non-rushed, kind, and loyal members to join our clan. I know global was taken out because many players abused it and were mean to other players, but I believe it was a very important part of the game to find new friends that you would enjoy talking to, and playing the game with. The new thing that helps find clan members (in my opinion) is not very useful. Most of the players are very rushed which don’t fit the requirements of the clan I’m in.
One other change I would like to see is the time it takes for buildings and troops to upgrade. The gold pass is a very good option to shorten the times, but I’m still a kid without a job, so I’m not always able to use 5 dollars to buy the gold pass. I have gotten it many times before, but without it I’m struggling to “stay on schedule.” I’m a TH11 at the moment in the ending stages of it. I only have walls left and a few troop upgrades in my laboratory left. The troops left are dark elixir troops and I have no problem getting the needed materials, but the time is almost unbearable. This reason made me come to the conclusion of why I want the time to upgrade buildings and troops to decrease.
My Favorite Game, but one thing...
Ok, so first I would like to start off by saying that your game is absolutely awesome. I play at least an hour a day every day and usually more. It combines fun, strategy, resource management, and action all in one magnificent bundle. I myself am a Town hall 9, but I rushed through the game way too fast and am very behind. Despite this, I love this game more than any other mobile game I have ever played. 10/10.
The issue, however, is not how expensive upgrades are or how the game is super pay to win (it’s not). My issue, is the time. I don’t mind saving up my gold to strengthen my defenses, or get a exciting new building, even if it’s really expensive. I hate it when you finally get the 2 million gold for an x bow, and it makes you wait 3 days on top of that. It makes the game so much less enjoyable. Same goes for training troops. I love attacking and forming strategies with my troops. But it is kinda annoying that it makes you pay for the troops AND wait an hour and a half to even use them. I don’t mind some of the waiting, but waiting for more than 1 day for a seven dps upgrade that also costs you 1.5 million gold is ridiculous. I’m not saying remove the wait time, but definitely cut down on it by quite a bit.
But anyway, this game is super awesome and I don’t mean to make it sound as though it’s a bad game. I really do love this game, it’s a brilliant work of art.
Amazing game, only one fix
I got this game back in 2014 and have deleted and re-downloaded it as I have time to play it. I’ve always loved it and have enjoyed going through all the new updates, from the introduction of clan wars all the way to the latest super troop update. My favorite part of the game was the community you could find just by going into global chat and talking. You could meet people from all over the world, compare bases, brag about your clans, or just get to know each other. Upgrades and troop training take a long time, so to pass that time I’d just hop on global since you could always find someone to talk to. I just got back on the game after a year long break however and was amazed to see they had REMOVED GLOBAL CHAT. That was literally the biggest reason I played this game as opposed to other knock offs. I really miss it and know that the vast majority of players do as well. I know it saves money and work to have it gone but maybe they should consider having a paid version of the game that includes the global chat or even a subscription bc I would literally pay to have it back again. Other than that failure of a decision the gameplay is great, well balanced and entertaining. Every match feels like I’m playing a match of chess and getting three stars against a town hall above me makes me feel like an absolute legend.
TLDR: Love the game, plz bring back global chat!
Battle Machine AI needs work
The game is fine and i’ve been playing it for years but never really payed much attention to the builder base until recently. I was so excited to finally get the battle machine and use it in my attacks until i started noticing the really bad targeting it has. I tried using funneling strategies to try to get the battle machine to attack where i want it to go, but it will choose to go towards the most useless buildings every time. I try to funnel it to go directly for the builder hall, all other buildings are destroyed, the path is clear, but it decides to go for the army camp way in the other side of the base instead. The most apparent problem it has is that it will target the guard post troops even if they are way out of range. If anything, the regular troops like barbarians and archers should be the ones to target them while the battle machine does the damage, but it’s the other way around. Even if the guard post troops are way inside the base and the builder hall is right in front of the battle machine, it will still go for the troops and die immediately because it’s surrounded by literally every defense, and the attack just goes downhill from there. A similar thing happens with the archer queen since it’s a ranged hero but it’s not as bad as the battle machine. It’s pretty much useless most of the time. If that could just get fixed, attacks would be much more successful.
If you’re looking for a great game, you found it!
I would first like to say I have never left a review, or at least that I remember I never left one but this game is something else. I have nothing negative to say about this game. I downloaded this years ago, it was honestly one of the first apps I got. I’ve played it and I will be honest, I also have taken some breaks. To this day it continues to be my favorite game and my friends and I have invested a lot of time into clash of clans. The way you you can design your base and think strategically is absolutely perfect and Supercell continues to add great new features and balances to the game overall. I am always excited for another update and I’m proud that supercell keeps coming up with good ideas and that they listen to their community. Supercell does not push sales on you though when you do make a purchase it’s actually worth it unlike other games. It’s especially worth it for when you’re a daily player and you buy the season pass. If I had to make any change to the game at all I would have a feature to attack your own base so that way you can pin out some weak spots while designing a new base. Other than that the game is amazing and if you never played it before I totally recommend you give it a download. I just want to warn you, it’s quite addicting!
Good game, but...
I really enjoy the game overall! Nice mixture of strategy and base-building. But a couple of things...
First off, I’m only town hall 8, and I’m already complaining about how ridiculously long upgrades are. Whether it be troop upgrades or building upgrades, them taking days at a time is really time consuming. So is the troop training times, even when I have maxed barracks! The game is fun at first when you start playing it for the day, but once you get those two maybe three battles in for the home village, I end up relying on my other games to entertain myself. Troop training takes a little too long😬. Please shorten those times.
The other thing is global chat...I understand that people were being mean on it and so you took it away. But the thing is, one of these days I’m probably going to want to start my own clan. Global chat would really help with that. I think the punishments will work just fine for people who are mean. People might mute them, or y’all will ban them. As an example, when I was cussing on the clan chat with my friends, the next day I find I’ve been banned for a couple days, and that future actions would lead to a permanent ban. Trust me, that shut me up QUICK AS HELL. Perhaps you can make new punishments as well, like losing gems or resources maybe as an example.
This is about clan leagues
So i dont wanna give this 1 star just because im mad, because its a great game and even the leagues still work well. The problem is how there is not a very clear explanation of starting one. So im the leader of a clan, and i have a couple cos who were in the last league, and they saw you could change the members before a war at any time. Let me just say that starting league looks very similar to starting a normal war, so when one of my cos saw the menu of who to add to league, they thought it had to be either 15 or 30 depending on the league type they chose. Because normal wars you cant have any extras it has to be exact. It also tells you how many people youve selected at the bottom. So they selected a random 15 just to get league started thinking that they could just change it later. But now theyve started league with a random 15 players and we have no way of canceling or changing people out, even though preparation day for the first war barley started. Now 60% of my clan cant participate in league and we cant do anything about it. I would just like to see this changed in a future update. Like if you can change the members at anytime before a war, why would they make it so you are limited to those you selected before hand. It would make more sense just to let you change out the participants with anyone in the clan.
This Game WAS Good
By The man of destiny23
I’ve never stopped liking this game ever since I got it 3 years ago. There has been so many different things that they’ve added to make the experience a whole lot better for everyone. I remember when I was in a huge clan and all of us would have lovely conversations about our days and how we were fighting in the next war. This game has made so many GREAT memories for me that I’ll never forget. But that was all in the past. The past updates that have been happening recently have really started to change the way this game makes itself original entirely. They’ve added a “Battle pass” sort of thing to try to trend with all the other games that have one like Fortnite. But in turn, it started being less creative and just boring, like ALL the other games. Making a game fun, in my opinion, is having it stand out from all the rest. Which this game is starting to lose. They have even removed World Chat, which I know some people don’t like. But World Chat was how random people bonded and became friends, and was the easiest way to get new members for your clan. Now all you do is invite people on a list and HOPE they join you. This game was at it’s peek around 2017 to 2018 but after they started adding so many things that made it unoriginal, it started to fall apart.
a Absolute Mobil Game Trend Setter
Clash of Clans is a game best played with friends. People will constantly say stuff like MicroTransactionMania but this just is not true. Yo can easily get gems in game, sure you might speed up the process with MicroTransactions but I never felt like they were a huge problem. The biggest problem this game has is what I call the silver crisis, this happens around silver league 3. At this period you hit a natural road block at which many people seem to quit. This road block being that once at silver 3 you will encounter lots of people with higher skill than you. This will lead to you attacking much higher bases than yourself and failing some people do this cycle of over confidence and failing will lead to some players to quit the game. There is also a issue with the walls being over priced playing some of the top single player missions and getting millions of gold will only allow you to upgrade a couple walls to level 12! And if your wondering at the time of needing to upgrade walls to level 12 you will have around 250+ walls! Another thing great about this game is the fact that it’s free game. It’s also been a around since 2012 and right now it’s November 2019 and there are still 100 million players that get on a day. This game is the best Mobil game in history.
I’ve been playing this game for years... and there is a lot that has changed.. I think the worst part that has changed is the global chat. That was prob the best part. You got to talk to all kinds of people. Talk about their clans and how things ran in them. But now you just have to guess and pick a clan. Don’t know if they speak your language or around your age. If they talk a certain way in their. Who knows?? You just pick one and go with it and keep jumping till you find something. Then the time wait on stuff is crazy. The best part is the new challenges you can do to earn rewards. Since everyone is most likely broke as mess since everything costs sooooo much. I’ve even spent like $5 on this game and that barely put a dent in what I needed to upgrade. It is a fun game to play and talk to people in but that part is cut out for some reason.. literally the best part. It made clan finding easy! Also I don’t really care for the other castle thing over the sea.. a lot of people don’t care for it since they are grinding their main base all the time. It was way better when it was simple. Just a base, clan, clan wars, clan chat, and global chat. But the loot after you get raided is nice! Really like that feature! The others people don’t really do except clan games. Great rewards in that! That’s it for right now I think. Well time to go hop in and out of clans all day to find a decent one I fit into and like 😒
