June 2019 update, day 3

I stayed up till 1.30am one night just because I grew addicted to single player. Since loot isn’t that good from 8pm to 3am, I elected to do single player instead so that I could continue playing and it lead me down a deep rabbit hole. I actually never played the new 50 single player maps because I wanted to […]

Day 246, May clan game rewards

Just realised that my base is now 8 months old. With 43/60/30 heroes at 8 months, I think I’ve done pretty good progress. Working on teslas now Someone asked me why is my current base not upgrading teslas. This is because I upgrade stuff based on time to completion, not their relative importance or anything. If I have an upgrade […]

Day 244, two levels of BK

With a low level BK like this, I can upgrade BK twice easily with full DE storage. 240k storage and the next level costs 138.4k Collect DE from the gold pass and my treasury storage. Used a book and I could upgrade BK again, then I spent all my DE to upgrade BK to lvl43. Almost halfway done with BK […]

June 2019 update, day 2

I cheated. Bought and used a hammer of heroes because builder potions would be useless after I maxed my AQ. Using builder potions to speed up mortars doesn’t seem too worth it so I’m basically using builder potions to speed up heroes only. I also have AQ at lvl64 already so skipping one level to get her maxed was really […]

Day 242, legendary whiners

While reddit is talking about research potions, we have gems in the forums whining about legends. The entire system was explained by the videos, FAQ etc yet people were caught off guard and were unable to drop out of legends. People are complaining about loot, not enough attacks, being too weak This is the greatest gem I’ve found in the […]

June 2019 update, day 1

Time to stretch my farming muscles again and max my heroes. How fast would it take to get 65/65/40 heroes, I wonder? No joke, this post was delayed because I spent my entire day farming. (And no joke that SC had to force a maintenance break for me to stop playing the game) I just finished my thesis about 2 […]

Day 239, legend league rework

Bowlers will be max tomorrow, not sure what I upgraded next. Probably witches or bat spell Just upgraded BK today, going to lvl41 now. Workshop going to lvl3 now, so I was wrong yesterday. DE is so abundant that I can upgrade BK today and start a DE upgrade tomorrow Ah, operation blue skies, the update that made me laugh […]

Day 236, thoughts on 6th builder

All 5 builders busy and I have no real place to put my farmed loot. Looking at my current base now and this picture (almost 1 month ago), I realised that I upgraded a shit ton of walls. This is because I farm loot way faster than I can spend it, so much so that sometimes I have free time […]

Day 235, thoughts on BH9

Nothing much here on my base, just finishing my last few gold mines. DE tank is half capacity and BK is nowhere near done, farming is easier than ever right now. It might get tougher after the update for a while but usually it will resolve quite quickly. Lvl11: 45*9 = 405mil 165*5 = 825mil Total wall cost = 1.23bil […]

Day 234, BK to lvl40

If I were a TH10, I would say that my BK is nearly maxed, not knowing that I’m less than halfway done. He’s going to lvl39 in this pic and I used a book of heroes here I don’t understand most people in reddit and the forums really, you are not “done” until you have lvl60 heroes. This accomplishment is […]

Day 232, thoughts on balance changes

Woohoo! Finally done with my thesis and I can finally write blog posts. The last 168 hours have been crazy and I have barely gotten 15 hours of sleep. Not much progress in my base at this time. After maxing AQ and warden, everything else is just slow upgrading with not much impact. Good thing SC is adding 5 new […]

Day 231, thoughts on research potion

Upgrading all my gold storages now, I need the 12mil storage to upgrade giga tesla to max which is probably the single biggest defense upgrade in TH12. Unfortunately upgrading eagle is only decreasing its utility because it takes more troops to start it. Eagle is already half useless because it only fires once or twice before it is taken down. […]

Day 228, attack/defense logs

Wall progress going ok right now. With the 20% discount and free 50mil per season, it is now pretty easy to do a ton of walls. I’m very confident that I can max walls in the next few months. I’m only now upgrading my gold storages which is a little late. With the gold pass, there is actually no reason […]
