I think the update is a bit of a wash for me, there's some long-overdue new stuff, but the mechanics changes aren't totally thrilling me to bits. I guess I'm in a place where I can weather them well enough, but I don't really feel that my relationship with the game has changed at all for me.

In contrast I feel that the Boom Beach team has really moved the game forward, and it actually severely outclasses Clash for both the diversity of things to do and the fun to be had doing them. Clash has raiding other players, the clan wars (which can be fun, but are also a bit of an exercise in frustration), and a one-time PvE campaign. Boom Beach has a mix of two types of PvP raid (player bases and resource bases), constantly refreshing PvE bases, a daily PvE challenge (Dr T, Hammerman, or the Weapons Lab) and now they've just added the Mega Crab, which is really fun and a bit of a loot pinata. All in all there's a lot more to do in boom, the meta feels less stale, and I feel like I'm progressing all the time. I'll always have an upgrade on the go and a building being improved, whereas in Clash it feels like I spend huge gaps where I'm just saving for the next incremental increase.

This new treasury mechanic looks good on paper. I'm also looking the daily 5* reward, which is 200k/200k/1000 for crystal II. Could be a decent and needed resource boost.

They still need to think about new game modes though, because Boom Beach is far more fun on that front

How long have you been playing?

I burned out on that game so fast once I was attacking like 12 times a day to retake the same islands over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.  I noticed that pattern with myself, any game where there's enough to do to eat up an hour or more straight becomes a chore eventually.

According to my achievements, about a year and a half of Boom. Judging by your description I'm guessing you quit before they made the changes to Dr. T. There's now a a daily event which cycles through four different formats, and there are the taskforces, which are clan PvE stuff. There's also the new Mega Crab event which was another different challenge. And you've still got the islands, but honestly you can get plenty of loot from the events, you don't have to obsessively clear. It's a much richer and more enjoyable game now imo.

Welcome back!

I also like this new "treasury" mechanic.  And the "loot carts".  Anyone know how "safe" the treasury is?  Is it completely impregnable?

The Warden is a lot more fun now that I've got him to level 5 and can use his special.  Dropping 3 seconds of invuln on all my dudes is pretty awesome.

The treasury appears to be based on your clan castle - I lost my (lv1 ignored upgrading it) clan castle, and lost about 5% of my treasury loot.  So now I'm upgrading my clan castle...

5% is still a much better percentage than the standard loot stores.  Nice.

Found online... "One major difference, however, is that destroying castles offered attackers 5 percent of their contained loot. With the Treasury, that number has been decreased to three."

So, 2% buffer, not bad at your levels Sam, but I'm hearing grumbling from TH11s that it stores too little to be much help

Mine holds 3M gold/goop and 15K DE, which is a pretty significant help IMO.  Doesn't trivialize the task of saving up 10M gold, but not having to sit at 9M for a long period while trying to save up that last million (and getting raided for a half million at a shot or whatever) is going to be nice.

Valk's also got switched up a little. Lower HP, higher Damage but also significantly decreased attack delay so they should be much more effective.

Skeleton's got nerfed, they had their HP reduced and no longer set off traps so archer towers should be able to 1 shot them if the level isn't too much higher and witches are now vulnerable to a variety of traps.

Not super impressed by the bowlers so far.  The bouncing rocks trick is neat in theory, but their AI doesn't take particularly good advantage of it.

Okay, I need to start manually tracking a shitlist of active people who opt in to clan wars and then consistently don't do their attacks.  Usually I'll make a quick mental note of who flaked on the war after it's over and try to remember to not pick them for the very next one, but by the war after that I can't remember any more.  I keep asking people to just opt out, even calling them out by name, but either they're non-English speakers (although the ice cream test is supposed to weed those out) or they think they're funny.  Either way, I'm thinking for habitual offenders I'm going to wind up giving them a quick boot with a message saying they're welcome to rejoin, but please opt out of wars first.

The metric I'm thinking I'm going to track is how many attacks each person has made (good karma) vs how many they've forfeited (bad karma).  Once bad karma exceeds the good by 10 attacks or so, they get a warning kick.  Does this sound like a reasonable thing?  People with small children in the clan, speak up (or borrow their phone and opt them out) before I hurt their feelings.  :P

According to the tally from the last two wars, the only ones who might be in need of a swift kick are Jacob, Brennan, and Ariel.  Everyone else who's opted in has made at least one attack at some point.

No, there's nothing stopping a kicked person from sending another request.  I don't think the game even has a "ban" feature; if someone wants to spam you with requests the only way to stop them is to set the entire clan to "closed".

I'll admit I do miss some wars, sorry about that. Having them non-stop doesn't always align with life though.

Currently have my mass-valk exploits on pause while I try to save enough DE to get them to level 5. After that it's valk time baby!

Sounds reasonable to me. My big issue is usually getting raided an hour or so before I'm ready to launch a war attack and then not getting CC troops until most way through a war (cause everyone's training troops for their own attacks).

Also apparently Supercell is currently cracking down on modders and hackers, quite a few of the 'high level' clans have disbanded or seen like 2/3 of their members just up and quit because they can no longer do practice attacks or keep their device on-line as much as possible.

Yup, zero dollars!  I still gotta max my queen (5 levels to go) and do a few DE lab upgrades, but with the king maxed out it feels like the end is in sight.  Witch donations for all!
