Hidden Tesla

The hidden tesla (abbreviated to “tesla”) is a defense that is unlocked in TH7. As with its name, it is hidden in the beginning of the battle and only “pops up” under certain conditions. The first way to activate a tesla is to come too close to one. If you are within 6 tiles of a tesla, it activates and […]

Day 358, OTTO unlocked!

Finally, after spending about 100 gems to skip the timer, I have completed him. I couldn’t get him to lvl4 earlier because gearing up was the last thing I did. If not for the OTTO, I wouldn’t have bothered doing any gear ups. They should also do more crossovers between the bases, at least implement something that would help higher […]

Day 357, BM lvl30

I woke up late, so I opted to use a rune of gold instead. That’s about 50 gems for 10.4mil loot? Its an ok trade. If I didn’t use the rune now, I would have sold it for 50 gems. The gems are actually useless for me now, but they would be really helpful when TH13 is released and probably […]

Builder base early game (BH5-6)

Builder hall 5 is where you unlock the builder machine (BM), currently the only hero in the builder base. It is a unique hero compared to the main base, because you can reuse its ability multiple times, regenerating health each time it is used. You can use the electric hammer once per 15 seconds and it increases damage for 3 […]

Builder base early tutorial (BH2-4)

Read my General BH advice before reading this. You want to rush asap in this section of the game. The earlier you rush, the faster you gain loot, the faster you progress and the stronger you become. Rushing quickly becomes a strong positive feedback loop which allows you to snowball your advantage. The in-game tutorial will bring you to BH2 […]

Day 352, progression

Spent some gold again to work on defenses, namely my wizard towers. They are halfway done with TH10 level which is surprisingly short. SC has made it such that TH10 upgrades don’t cost more than 6 days which is a huge discount compared to the past. In fact, I am currently upgrading my WT to lvl9 which used to be […]

Day 351, Sept 2019 Balancing Update

I am about a week late into this one but I think it is important to test out the changes and see how do people respond and react before giving my opinion on things. The first most important change is the nerf to hog rider. Hog riders lvl9 received a 30 hp nerf from 920 to 890. Despite being just […]

Day 348, hogs to lvl4

Sigh, loot is full again despite just upgraded some stuff. I usually store a ton of clan war and daily star bonus loot and collect it whenever I do a few major upgrades. This allows me to raid <4 times a day and still keep my builders busy which makes things way too easy. Even when dealing with major losses […]

Day 347, upgrading multi mortar

I’m currently upgrading my multi mortar in preparation of my mortar gear up. It needs to be lvl8 for this and my regular mortar in my home base has to be lvl8 as well so I’m upgrading both. According to this, I will need to do 3 more gear ups and a few more BM levels. I will use books […]

Battle boost/spelling champ/brawl brew/intense fence

They don’t have a common theme so I’m just going to name the title using the four packs and that might help with the google search algorithm. Time to analyze these new packs. This post will replace today’s journal entry so stay tuned for TinySin’s progress tomorrow. In short, only the middle two packs are anywhere decent, but far from […]

Day 345, BM to lvl25

Managed to farm enough to upgrade BM to lvl25, now I just need to farm enough for the next 3 levels before I can use runes and books to complete him. Also, I don’t quite like this design and my other account’s bases aren’t too good too. Does anyone have any suggestion on which base to use? The last few […]

Day 343, misconceptions of rushing

One of my very first posts in this blog was “Misconceptions of Rushing“. Looking at the post today, it is still very relevant and I can in fact lengthen the list and make even better arguments for rushing while dispelling even more myths. With some maxers trying to “debunk” me giving really outdated arguments, some even more than 5 years […]
