Syncaine over at Hardcore Casual has been writing about Clash of Clans on the mobile platforms for a while now, and I figured it was time to give it a little try. He is running a clan called Suprme Cream and if I can build up fast enough, I just might be able to join in. Apparently you need to build a castle to gain access to clan warfare, so it may take a bit.
In the mean time, I did the standard starting things…building up a few resource buildings – you can only have 2 gold mines and 2 elixir collectors, so I built them and got them to level 4. They still seem to be generating resources awfully slow. I also built and improved my barracks to level 3. I can generate Barbarians, Archers, and Goblins who get the job done in the starting campaign. They do seem to be pretty mindless though and get killed a lot, so I built up my Army Camp to level 2 so I could station 30 troops in there.
One thing I am finding odd is that when I attack, whatever troops I use, I automatically lose regardless of if they survive the battle or not. I'm gonna have to look into this as it doesn't really seem right. Anyone that survives I would think can run home for the next battle. In any case, it is a real resource sink as it costs elixir every time I want to go on an attack.
I'll keep at it though and see if I can make it high enough to join the clan before I get attacked.
