Great Game, Characters and Options.
My only complaint is the cost to upgrade defenses using gold compared to the time it takes to acquire the gold. If you have 100 Walls to upgrade at 9,000,000 in gold per section, but it takes you 6 months or more to earn 4,000,000 in gold, then it would literally take you over 3 years to get all of your Walls to the same level. Keep in mind, that in order for your gold coffins to hold 9,000,000 in gold, you have to collect enough gold first to upgrade the coffins to a level that allows them to be big enough to hold that amount in gold. And to do that, it would mean you have to spend the gold you're trying to save up to upgrade the walls. So after upgrading all of your gold coffins you have to start all over from scratch and save up 9,000,000 in gold just so that you can upgrade ONE section of your 100-sectioned Walls. I've been playing this game for over 5 years, and i still have purple diamond-like walls, with a combination of some black marbled-stone-like walls. I can't acquire enough gold to get my walls matching, because it takes so long to collect, upgrade and wait for things to finish upgrading, as well as it costs so much to build your defenses up. Just to upgrade a bomb tower to level 2, costs over 2,000,000 in gold. 2million for a level 2? Anything that's level 2 will be destroyed in 2 seconds. Over-priced!!!
I played clash of clans today and it said their was an update available. I clicked on the update button but it didn’t work apparently this has happened to a ton of people. Supercell said on Twitter how to fix this but it didn’t work. I need an answer soon to this problem so I can fix it. This update was the update for March 5 it is for the th8 builder base. I am a important leader of my clan and I need to get in to help them but it is not working. Again I need an answer soon this is really important I will lose my league today if I can’t log in. I don’t expect you have time to listen to my review I also sent an email plz check your email today. I know your working hard on this and you have for a few hours, but I really need to log in. If you are able to get an answer back to me and fix this problem that will be appreciated. Thank you for your time reading this very long review and taking your time to fix this problem, I am sure others will appreciate it if you fix this problem, thank you to one of my favorite game companies. Send me an email back to tell me how to fix this, I tried the answer on Twitter multiple times and it didn’t work. If you can get an email back to me that will be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time
Cool dude #1,
Awesome game, one problem.
By Erin Rieck
I love this game. It’s super fun and super addictive! I started playing it a couple months ago and I’d recommend it to anyone! Some things get pricey as you get to the higher levels and that slows progress but most games are like that. The only problem I have had with the game is Supercell’s customer service. They are absolutely terrible. I just had an incident where I upgraded to a new phone and had problems loading my village to my new phone. First of all, they won’t let you call them. It’s email only and they take days to respond. Secondly, they told me they found my village and that I would need to answer 10 questions in order to verify. I answered the questions and thought ‘great! I’ll have my village back in no time!’. Man was I wrong. They told me that my answers were precise enough and that they wouldn’t give me my village back. I went back and forth with them for days. With them continuously telling me that they can’t help me and that I couldn’t have my village back. I finally just created a new Apple ID in order to re-save my old village on my old device. It was all such a hassle and they didn’t end up helping me at all. 10/10 would recommend the game but know going into it that the customer service is completely terrible.
Walls aren’t overpriced
Hey guys. I’ve been playing this game non-stop for 2.5 years and I still love it just as much as the beginning. I have 3 accounts with the biggest being a maxed th9 about to be a th10. Clan games are interactive, wars are fun and genius and attacking is practical and requires strategy and tactic. The reason i think people think walls are overpriced is because people focus too much on progressing the base and getting bigger and less about the teamwork that makes clash stand out from other iOS games EVEN clash royale. Supercell did an INSANE job at matching up the amount of elixer needed AND gold needed to build and max ones base. If walls were any cheaper, Wed see massive stockpiles of gold on people bases when u try to attack a near-maxed TH. My th9s troops and walls are going to max AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME. After about th8 it mostly becomes a focus on getting into a clan that suits you and trying to build a war streak with other buddies. It’s really the construction of a strong clan that makes the game fun. U can do that at most any level. Not good at wars? 1. Get better, 2. Clan games! Everyone can do those and they make the clan look good. If ur impatient, we’ll that’s why they made clash royale. If ur a strategy and businessman like me, this is the game for you. Thanks for reading!
Decent game, one glaring issue.
Clash of Clans is an alright game, with some fun, albeit unoriginal base building and attacking gameplay. It has a fun art style, and some nice animations. If you reach some of the higher leagues, sure, it becomes grind for 3 weeks or pay to win, it is still a nice competitive bracket. The main issue I have had with this game is the servers. Supercell has the insane amount of players playing this game on just a set of relatively cheap servers. Connection is honestly never stable, they do not allow client side modification, and the servers cannot properly handle the amount of players on at any one time. From personal experience, this device loses connection to the servers at least every 6.5 minutes the app is active. This is not ok. I do understand that setting up new servers is expensive, could shut the game down for a few days or weeks, and may have them lose some money they could've made during that time, but I believe it is the best option for the longevity of this game. They probably don't care, because no matter what people will keep paying them for gems or loot, but if they actually care about having an enjoyable game with minimal issues, I think something has to be done. Apologies for the rant.
TLDR; Decent game with nice graphics,not quite original gameplay ideas (fun nonetheless), servers are not good enough for the amount of players.
It’s great until...

This game has been my go to mobile game for about 4 years now. I’ve played on and off in those years, and in that time I’ve gotten myself to level 102 and about halfway finished maxing my th9. This and Clash Royale are my all time favorite mobile games, and I have nothing but positive things to say until this. When you get into a high level clan, you will inevitably have some guy’s level 12 little brother in the clan with you, who will always wanna be giving you troops. It shouldn’t have to be said that when I request for balloons, I’m not asking for your little level 2s. But the kid won’t quit and no one will ever say anything cuz they don’t want to offend his level 135 brother, who happens to be co-leader.
Supercell, I’m begging you. Put in request settings. When you go to request for troops, rather than typing up what you want in the box, I would like to see something where it just pulls up the little menu that has all the troops (sort of like when you are training troops) and you just tap the troop(s) you want, how many of each, and then maybe have a little slider bar with the minimum troop level that you will accept. This way people can’t troll you and give you stuff you don’t want.
Game is fun, but needs improvements
Hey guys, hopefully this review will make it to the supercell team. I have played this game for awhile and as a player I’ve noticed the dificulteis it is to climb to the top. To start with I want to talk about upgrading the walls. I’m at a point where my next walls upgrade will be 4mil per wall. This seems very unbalanced compared to what it costs to upgrade the buildings. I do want to say tho, thank you supercell team for coming out with the magic books!!! I just couldn’t bear the idea of waiting a month for a TH upgrade! Anyhow, the walls, way too expensive to upgrade, 4mil for a single piece of wall when a defense building costs only about twice as that, “maybe a way to add a less expensive way to upgrade the walls if you choose to let your builder work on it for awhile? Just an idea!” Many players have very rushed walls and it seems like a general issue. Another thing are the heroes, I mean, come on, 3 heroes, and my queen now costs 90k DE to upgrade. It would be fine if it was 1 heroes, now upgrading all 3, plus the lab troops with just a couple DE colector. By the way, thanks for adding the boost for 1 gem only for the collectors!! Overall I think the game is cool, but the people at the bottom are struggling to get to top, need to ease a little on the costs of these things. Thanks for reading!
Great Game/Suggestions/My experience
I am a 5 year player. I love the game and love how it isn't pay to win you can easily get all 5 builders with achievements being completed. I would like it to be easier to switch accounts so I can check on my iPad account every now and then on my phone, on Samsung you can go and easily switch google plays on Apple you can't. i don't know if you can make that happen or not though. Costumer support is great as well I lost my account and they guided me through how to get it back considering I forgot my Game Center but they sent me a thing to fill out and I got that account back. I do think that dropping trophies is easy but getting them back is hard now. If you get 16% or lower you should lose 3/3 trophies, if you get 17% or higher 2/3 lost, 33% and up should 1/3 trophies lost. Their shouldn't be a timer on challenging a new base or at least a shorter timer and maybe allow heroes to be in challenges even when their down for a upgrade. The path on the left side of the base should lead to some other base. The waterfall would be cool to bring back into the game considering the game is less laggy now. Hope it was helpful great game only game I don't get sick of.
Great Game! But, One Problem
I love this game to be completely honest. It has a great sense of progression with you upgrading your base over time. The upgrades are for the most part, balanced. The addition of Builder Bases was a great idea. Although I feel there are several great things about this game, there is one problem. This is, the people who you are matched up against in Builder Base battles. I upgrade all of my defenses and yet I am still being beat by people who are an entire Builder Base level higher than me. This gives them an upper hand. People should be matched against people of the same Builder Hall level so that everyone that is matched together will have the capability to get all upgrades that your opponent has and there is no advantage. This would make it so that you aren't being beaten by someone who has things you don't have access to at all. With this also being your main source of resources, you can barely upgrade due to the rare wins. Even when adjusting troop setups and strategies, I can't get a success. Now don't think I all of a sudden hate this game for that. It's a great game with one problem that doesn't even affect the entire game because this only affects your Builder Base and not your main base. Overall, I love this game.
Broken meta that has no signs of change
So I've never felt the need to review a game on the App Store, but this one is a special kinda game and I felt needed mentioning. If you plan on playing this game long term and want to get the new builder base as decked out as you can you play vs other people in real 1v1 battles, Just don't do it. This games meta is so broken that there is almost nothing you can do but to do the same thing EVERYONE else does. Which in this case is to lvl up your air units to max and that's it. Air defense is a joke in this game and they give your base 2-3x the amount of defenses for ground units si air can do whatever it wants. It's beyond stupid that you can play 10 games and lose 9 of them because your base is being 100% by people maxing baby drag or night witch. Then you watch the replay and realize there is nothing you can do to counter it, but to do it too. I consistently get above 70-80% dmg on bases and lose solely because of dumb meta choices. Just do yourself a favor and stay away until they decide to nerf air units or give you better defenses for it. I mean it's not to much of a surprise considering clash royal has 78 cards and you see a whopping 25 of them or less in ranked. Everyone once again spams the same kinda stuff because no one can win with real strategy or diversity and they made it like that 100%.
