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 […]

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 […]

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 With some maxers trying to “debunk” me giving really outdated arguments, some even more than 5 years […]

Day 341, CWL ranters

The beginning of the month is always the best for me because I can read and enjoy the tears of players who do not understand the CWL system. The system rewards progression much more than skill so being a skillful TH9 is useless because it is a weak base. (Read: Four pillars of clash) Many players especially in reddit don’t […]

Day 338, failed clan games

Had a small break from upgrading my BM because I want to unlock super pekkas on this account. I never bothered to upgrade my barracks because I was lazy. Drop ship minions, while being a really good army, does fall flat at higher leagues. In preparation of that, I want to start working on super pekkas so that I can […]

Day 337, pekkas to lvl5

I am halfway done with my lvl12 archer towers which mean they would be officially “TH10 level”. Wizard towers are nearly TH9 level now, I need another 4 levels on them before they are maxed. Looking through my tracker, it seems like I’ll run out of cheap and easy upgrades soon as my defenses reach TH11 level. The disparity between […]

Day 336, attack logs from both bases

Attacking in the builder base can be really frustrating at times, at least this day isn’t bad at all. I got my 3 wins within 5 attacks which is great. Sometimes you hit losing streaks in the builder base which just makes you want to quit playing it altogether. Sometimes you lose a ton despite getting 90+% every single attack […]

11th Month, builder base showcase

Nothing much going on in the main base today. I’m still updating my guides, just done with TH11 and now going to finish TH12 guides before moving on builder base guides. 3 upgrades completing in 12 hours but I already have enough gold to start all 3. I can’t believe how much was discounted for TH9/10, it is currently around […]

Day 333, general planning

This was what my rewards screen looked like just 6 days before the end of the season. I still had a ton of things unused. In the end, I just sold my power potion, training potions and hero potion for 70 gems. Runes were much harder to use, I think I just sold my rune of elixir. My rune of […]
