    TH 7 can't come soon enough. Was always confused about the DE storage at 7 but no passive generation until 8.

    They made it where you can't use elixir to upgrade walls now?

    I had been using gold for walls and elixir for troops anyway, so, in reality, the change didn't matter THAT much, to me at least.

    With the elixir collectors and mines each needing gold or elixir for the upgrades, and each making what's needed to buy the other's upgrades, and a giant costing 7 million elixir...and all the wall and $/E upgrades needing a builder, my walls are going to be coasting for a while.

    With the new gold mines cranking out 3,500/hr instead of 3,000/hr, that's 7 times 500 x 24 = 84,000 gold a day more that can be used for walls later, etc.

    They might upgrade canons and wizard towers and mortars, etc one day as well, add an upgrade level to DE or to the Lab or spell factory, and so forth...so, I'm SURE the added production rates will be handy.

    I know that before the capacity increase, after a war, I was out of elixir anyway...I'd be waiting on the collectors to get troops training for attack #2, etc.

    ONE L4 Dragon is 42,000 elixir to train, an L5 PEKKA is 50k, even an L6 Balloon is 4,500 to train, etc...these things slurp that stuff down in a serious fashion. The Inferno Towers and X-Bows eat elixir and get "reloaded", the traps and bombs at the max levels are even expensive to reset.


    I think reservoir capacities might be the next upgrade, because things are getting so expensive that their max capacity is being hit to save enough to buy one upgrade, etc. I'm at L25 Royals, and, to get my Queen to L26, one Level, is another 130,000 DARK Elixir, the King is another 120k DE to go from L25 to L26. The largest reservoir only HOLDS 200k, not enough to save enough for both, and by the time it gets to L40, barely enough for 1 of them to go one level.

    The gold/elixir storages max at 8 mill, and, for example, a max giant is 7 million all by itself...so if the NEXT giant, or PEKKA, etc, is going to be over 8 mill, there's no where to pay it FROM, unless they add a storage unit, or, add to their capacity, etc.

    It would be nice if they made it so you can do payments with SOME of one and SOME from another too...so, lets say you had 600 k of gold and 400k of elixir, you could combine them to buy one 1 mil item, etc.

    :D

    I'm done for a while....gotta leave $ for xmas presents and stuff.

    I just have too little patience to WAIT freakin FOREVER for these upgrades to grind out. Its WHY I always chew up the tootsie pop instead of sucking it.

    I am in no way, shape or form poking fun at people who play this game. I was addicted to WoW for 2+ years and it was a dark time for me, I spent too much money and time on it for that period. Anyways, how much does an average person spend on this game?

    Serious agree. Now I have no chance of wall upgrades. I can't spend 200K gold on one single wall piece when I have cannons and other defenses to upgrade. :(

    Over this year I've probably given this company about $100. I stopped buying in but the gems we're nice to have. Everything's so epensive now that you realize the gems aren't worth it anymore. It would take $10 just to upgrade my King to level 2.

    You can play for free....but, you do just need more patience. There is NOTHING that requires real $ to get, and, you can get the same stuff as the people who bought gems.

    Personally, I have too little patience, and, I DID buy gems to speed up the process.

    In COC though, the nice thing is that you don't HAVE TO build-up quickly, because the clan wars are matched by level....so, if you are a newb/not built up....so are your opponents....so its even.

    As you get stronger, so do your opponents...so, its still fun even if you're NOT the top dog.

    Our clan for example has some people with very basic beginning levels, and, they contribute exactly as much to a clan war, if not more, than their fellow clan members with longer playtime under their belts...because the wins they score count the same.


    I have not played WoW, so I can't compare them, but, COC has been a lot of fun, and I know a LOT of people who play it, so its also fun, outside the game itself, to discuss it with friends in person when out socially, etc.

    I wasn't going to pay anything but for one reason or another, I don't remember, but I dropped $10 once... Kinda just wanted to see how much that would put me ahead compared to not spending any money. It was not really a waste but I by no means made a huge jump with it either. Wish I hadn't spent the money now but at the time it made sense. Preeety sure I was not sober when I did it. Ahh well, $10.

    You do not need to spend anything at all. Probably one of the best "free" games out there. Always said I would never play this game, got 3 accounts now and thinking about starting a 4th.

    I am resisting any urge to even download this game because I'm fairly certain I'll get hooked. It's hard for me to play any social game casually. When I played WoW, I spent tons of time on it and luckily (or un-luckily depending on the view) I was single and had no other major commitments so I could play it a ton. The money spent on it wasn't too bad, and I justified it as a hobby. I was fortunate enough to make some real friendships outside of the game with people I met while playing so in the end I'd say it wasn't all bad. I also played MW3 competitively, consuming tons of my time.With that being said, I don't think I could ever play WoW again on just a casual basis. I'd want to get back in it at the same competitive level I was used to playing at which my current lifestyle would not allow me to do lol.

    I've been playing for 2 and a half years (since the beginning) and sometimes play a lot, sometimes not. Currently I only attack twice a day right before my shield expires. That keeps me in Champion league. I'm sure eventually I will go back to playing a lot more but I'm just not that into it anymore. To much time used to just give up however.

    I was on the road, and he posted the join request mentioning his 2009 Xterra....in english, so I assumed he at least had an xterra...so I hit the accept button.

    When I came here to see who he was....nada.

    He would NOT be the first to forget to post here first though...so he might be OK.

    :D

    I hope so, as Jeff was dropping an account to get us back to 20 because he joined, etc....

    Sorry but I'm MIA for this war. Got a new phone last night and COC is not available on it. The old phone I accidentally left at work.

    We seem to have a issue with others not helping out with battles again... Let me know who we may need to clean out..

    We haven't won a battle in a long time

    Tried to talk the wife into starting a base. She used to like to play AOE (the only real game I have ever gotten her to play). Then I remembered she only liked to build the city and upgrade her people but would never build a barracks until she was getting attacked. She would holler at me that she had people destroying her peons so I would take a look. Not 1 barracks built, no archers, no pikemen, nothing but the scout you start with. Ugh

    Someone made a join request, mentioning having an X, but, I hit accept, but, later, didn't see them....or any message that I'd accepted OR rejected them.

    That's how p-love got in....he said he had an X, so I hit accept, and he's been donating, in wars, etc....even though he never actually seemed to be on HERE at least.


    As far as winning wars, the other clans also have a few guys who were no shows...but, for us at least, if a person misses wars a lot, they are a liability, but, if they allow 4 OTHERS to battle because we have 20 not 19, to me, its worth it. When they make it 21, sure, then its not worth keeping them.


    Given the fact that some people have lives ( my theory at least....), sure, people will be on the road or otherwise unable to participate, as wars are not on a set schedule...they pop up randomly.

    If we had wars on set days, so people could plan around them (better at least...), it might help. This way, for example, if there's a war declared on Wednesdays and Saturdays, on those days, it would occur to people to at least log in. :D

    the only reason I haven't jumped into the clan is because I really only play this in spare time.
    So I don't want to be the reason you all get screwed or something.

    I found that I my experience that the emulators are not that good unless you have a tough screen for your computer. When using the mouse it was kind of difficult to zoom and navigate around.
