Clash of Clans

iOS PvP tower defense/attack game.  You build a village, try to optimize its defensive layout, build troops, and then attack other villages to try to steal their shit.

I was worried it'd be a hardcore game where you lose months of work when you fuck up, but attacks never actually damage your town, just your troops and resources, which are easy to regain.  And the game doesn't let you target specific players, nor does it let anyone get plundered multiple times a day.

Troops can't be controlled directly; you pick where to deploy them and then they do their thing.  A big part of the game is therefore trying to manipulate the troop AI -- build defensive patterns that will funnel them to their deaths, etc.

If your clan is well ranked (judged by the scores of the members) you get credits dispensed every ranking period.

Some friends played this obsessively for a while. I'm glad to be done with it. Takes a lot of repetitive time.

I've been playing this a lot for work related purposes. There is a new game by the same developers called Boom Beach. It's a lot more engaging than CoC while retaining the same core loop. I think it's only available in the Canadian app store for now but expect it to be wheeled out globally soon.

Just did a remodel on the base - hopefully it makes my base a less-enticing target

I almost made a Bat Country back when I started playing this but didn't because there were already like 10 of them, which would make it problematic to find the "right" one.  My clan is "Cacophonists" and I have lots of upgraded troops to donate.   awesome, for real

Finally put some time into this game.  Upgrading my Town Hall to 4 today, and I should be able to rebuild the clan hall after that.

Also, I made it into Bronze 3  awesome, for real

Started futzing around with this on the tablet, for something to do while at work. Progress seems a bit slow and it feels a bit farmvilley to me, but the combat/defense mechanics are at least interesting. I don't think I'm allowed to join a clan yet, though, but I will seek out BC once I can. Are clans OS specific or will I be able to play with you Apple guys on my Android?

I found the clan, but I don't know how to join it. There is no button, despite it saying anyone can join.

Edit: Just realized you can build more than one of each resource production and storage facility. That speeds things up considerably.

You have to rebuild the clan hall building that you'll find somewhere on your land plot in ruins.  Takes about 40k elixir or something to do.

I'm stuck in the low to mid 800s in the ladder.  I need more force to overcome the people that are higher, but it's hard to find lower people that actually have resources to plunder.

#firstworldproblems   why so serious?

Anywho, still having a good time with this. Almost maxed out everything I can do with a lvl 4 Townhall, save for making the jump to lvl 5.  Really appreciate the troop contributions from everyone, and I hope mine are helpful as well.

If you're maxed out where you are, you need to either pay the people or just farm up time wise.

My buddy recommended putting your town hall outside your walls. Losing the town hall ends the fight sooner, giving them less chance to get into your storage bins to really pillage. Granted, you are going to lose trophies this way but it keeps the shield up as much as possible.

I don't really have a problem there.  The only time I'm loosing defenses at this point is to people with

A) a shit-ton of forces
B) a small ton of highly laboratory reseached forces
C) Tons of flying

Tier 4 walls are holding up well.  I already have plans for tier 5 for superior  awesome, for real

Is it worth doing all of the PVE battles or should I start attacking players? I've done a few PVP battles but never gotten a decent amount of cash out of it. I'm also not sure if I have a decent base layout or not; I've only been attacked twice and won both times so I guess I'm doing something right.

Does putting stuff in a corner even work? I haven't seen anyone else do that at the silver levels, so I assumed you are required to have walls all around.

I had the same thought and researched it.  People can place troops on the grass border, so sticking it in the corner doesn't help.

http://clashofclans.wikia.com/wiki/Dokugan%27s_Strategy_Guide

The PvE battles are good to start with, but I found that after the first 6 or 7 I was needing to build my base up to levels that it was easier just to stomp around the bronze III level and farm them instead.  You lose your shield eventually anyway, so may as well jump in once that happens.

Putting valuable stuff in the corner is the classic noob mistake that everyone makes until they watch one of their defense replays.   awesome, for real

The PvE battles are definitely worth doing, but since each one gives you a finite amount of loot it's more cost-effective to do them when you have a strong enough army that you can three-star them on your first try.  While they last they also give you a nice "safe" loot source for when you're trying to save up for something big and don't want to break your shield.

No reason to hold off on doing PvP.  At the low levels it's actually at its most rewarding, because at the bottom of the food chain you have a lot of fat newbies who either don't know how to defend their loot or who quit playing after a few days and left their mines to run endlessly until someone comes along to empty them.

Here's my village layout BTW:


Note that I'm currently doing the (mostly) unprotected town hall cheese because I'm trying to save up goop for upgrades, and that's easier when people aren't rolling over my entire village with hog riders every day.  Once I spend down my goop vats I'll swap the town hall back with the laboratory in the middle so I can build up trophies (which is useful insofar as it gives you a better loot bonus when attacking).  Right now I'm spending my gold on wall upgrades as fast as I get it (upgrading the level 7 purple walls to level 8 black walls at 500k a pop -- almost done!).
