Sneak Peek in Superbowl Commercial?

Clash of Clans Superbowl Commercial

As most of you know, tonight is the most watched game in America- the Super Bowl! The game is great, but the advertisements are even better. It costs 4.5 million dollars for just 30 seconds of TV time! That’s 150k for each second. Clash of Clans wanted to get in on the action too and…

Big Changes to Builder Huts

Builder Huts are the key to this game. Imagine having only one builder!! The game would be painstakingly boring since you would have an overflow of resources due to long update times. Granted, even 5 isn’t enough for some people. I have some ideas which would greatly improve builders in general. 1. Add a 6th…

Clash for Dummies App

Hey guys! So I really think it would be cool to create an app to provide you an easier way to access Clash for Dummies. It would be linked to all of the posts and have some cool features as well. Maybe a mini-game? This would save lots of time than going to the website…

Did you know that there is a set rate for obstacles spawning? That’s right; trees and logs don’t spawn randomly, but rather on a tight schedule. Also, the amount of gems you receive from clearing these obstacles doesn’t come randomly either. The sequence for the obstacles is as follows: 6-0-4-5-1-3-2-0-5-1-0-3-4-0-0-5-0-1-0 This sequence is over a…

grinding, adj, “to produce in a routine or mechanical way“ Walls are some of the most despised upgrades in this game. They are extremely expensive, with 1 wall costing as much as a building upgrade.

Bigger Trophies Ranges in Multiplayer Attacks

If you haven’t been raiding recently, you should definitely go out and complete a raid. In this recent maintenance break, Supercell changed the trophy range that you could gain trophies in. Before the most you could gain was +34 and the least was +13. Now, I have found as high as +43 but also as…

How to Get a Christmas Tree in Clash of Clans

Fake December Update List: Is it Real?

If you haven’t read about the last two sneak peeks, they have both matched the “fake” update list almost exactly. So is the update list actually real, leaked information? My leading theory is yes. The tweets by Supercell have matched the update list almost exactly, so it can’t be a random guess. However, I believe…
