It’s no news that Clash of Clans is one of the most played mobile games of 2019, reports suggesting that it generates over $5 million per day, even though it is a free to play game.
In order to get to the top level, veterans of Clash of Clans spent more than two years to achieve such great progress. Players admittedly report that the game can be frustrating at times.
Here’s a list of tips to enhance your gameplay:
Create a good village layout
Starting with a good village layout is essential, especially if your aim is to win trophies.
Carefully choose where you store your loot right from the beginning when there are few walls: Many players place storages centrally, having the Town Hall outside, used as some sort of distraction.
When there are no more upgrades to save for, just protect the Town Hall. If you find designing a base too much of a struggle to be worth it, just look up base designs on the internet. You’re surely going to find one that suits your preferences.
Save gems for bad days
As gems are useful for speeding upgrades and boosting the gameplay overall, you should avoid wasting them and try to keep hold of them for as long as possible, even if you feel like going on a spending spree. It’s better to have them and not need them than the opposite. Some players end up spending real money on gems they carelessly wasted.
Put the Town Hall outside the walls
If you are looking for loot instead of trophies, this strategy suits you: Giving attackers simple access to the Town Hall, you avoid them attacking collectors.
If you are interested in saving for an upgrade, it might be a good idea to place the Town Hall on the outside, as it gives you a costless 12-hour shield after each attack, allowing you to either celebrate the attack or recover from defeat.
Patience is a virtue, and Clash of Clans heavily relies on this saying, as you need to spend over two years to complete the game without gems, and bad luck can strike at any time, so getting angry over it only makes it worse.
