Upgraded 3 lvl10 walls and 1 lvl11 wall today (9mil total resources)
Started the upgrade of my first lvl12 collector to max. Now its just a small slog of 35 days left to having maxed elixir pumps (37 days for gold mines). After that, I can start focusing on upgrading defense.
I’m really not too sure when I want to upgrade my TH. Around May to July is a decent time but I’ll be taking a professional exam in November. But if I upgrade in Nov, I’ll be nearly maxed TH10 which defeats the purpose of the journal. I’ll see how my exams and semester pans out after I start my semester this 1st Feb, but tentatively I plan to upgrade to TH11 around June this year.
This is the greatest boon for the semi-casual/hardcore player:
The 2 hr guard costing 10 gems can allow you to have some real life and ease of mind that you will not be attacked for the next 4-7 attacks. This will make it possible for someone to farm while doing other things in life and not worry about losing too much resources.
I use it infrequently when I’m busy and still wish to raid. It allows me to play much more casually and still progress at nearly the speed of when I am hardcore
