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!!!

It’s so easy to pre train troops and sometimes you keep your training queue full because you raid often. If you want to donate troops to a friend you’d have to delete some troops to train some for them. So! The idea is a new building. The Cantina! It holds up to 20 troops at town hall lvl 8 and +5 for all the levels that you decide to add. With this cantina building an new tab is present on your training/brewing/quick train screen labeled ‘Cantina’. In this new tab you’re able to train troops that cannot be used in battle, but can only be donated. The building should be the size of a camp but that’ll be annoying to protect so maybe 4x4 or 3x3 like the clan castle. I should probably go to supercell to leave this idea but I’ve already tried and could not find it. So if you’re a random fan and have an account feel free to pass this on. It’ll probably get rejected idk. Five out of five stars I’ve been playing this game for years!
Edit: maybe the Cantina can be place on the beach and they set sail to the builder base and the can stay there
New idea!!: emotes! If we are watching our base get raided I want to be able to laugh at my attacker for only bringing goblins and realizing that all the loot is in the storages and not in the collectors. Just a laughing king barbarian at the corner of the screen would do. Nothing in the way so I don’t interrupt his attack
WOW, CWL changed my life
My previous review of this games was only 3⭐️. I won’t go into the reasons, it would be too long. The October update with CWL was amazing. This new league war where players are placed in a league based on war weight, but once they are in a league they will only get matched with other clans in the same league. It’s all about teamwork and good clan strategy to get to the next higher league. The rewards are awesome if your clan is active and does all attacks. This games rewards active players, and makes me want to play even more. I remember the days when the pro war community would stay at max th9. With the CWL update and getting matched based on league encourages players to progress.
SIDE NOTE: Heavy clans that are new to CWL will always start in Champions 2 or lower. Champion 1 is a league that you have to earn. To prevent higher town halls from rigging the game and getting into lower leagues all CWL matchups are 15vs15. I see no reason why Champions 1 is limited to 15vs15 wars. Many clans in the higher leagues have lots of strong players who are sitting on the bench. Making Champions 1 20v20 would encourage clans who want more players in the war map to get there asap. Maybe in the future we might see titans or legends league in CWL. And if those leagues are lock from new CWL clans they also should have larger then 15vs15 wars.
Great game but....
So i had come back to clash of clans from not having played for years upon signing into game center i realize my account was my lower level Town Hall 8 i then tried getting my stronger Th9/10 back to which i answered the questions to my best knowledge getting some correct and clearly telling the person who was helping me that its been years later on in the day while the “agent” is still trying to help me i go in to see what his reply was and then was met with the screen “your account has been banned due to account psyching attempts” so basically i got banned for trying to get my years old account back and without any warning or anything got banned with my first attempt to actually get my account back i was a town hall 8 player who poured hours into the game with two account the other being more advanced and i got treated as a town hall 1 account who was just made to actually try to steal accounts upon trying to get my account back i was just emailed back saying the reason for my account being banned to which i already knew the reason i then emailed back explaining it was just a mis understanding and i would like to actually play on the account i poured years into to which i never got a reply to i would just like to get my account unbanned and actually play the game which is love.
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!
Great game, but fix the AI and the clan matchups
The game is great: fun, interactive, and more. But when I attack sometimes the Ai in the troops doesn’t make sense. It might just be part of the game, but the Ai should at least follow some common sense. For example, if there is a giant, and he is 5 tiles from an archer tower that is surrounded by walls, but 15 tiles away from another archer tower with no walls, the giant will go for the archer tower with no walls, regardless of wall level or archer tower level. If there is a closer object, those troops should target that object, such as in the giant example, where he should have targeted the archer tower with walls.
Second of all, the clan matchups are not balanced. I am in a lvl 3 clan with decent players, but we only have around 5-7 players th 9 and above in wars. We get matched up with clans that are lvl 8-10, with almost all player having a th above 8. In the matchups, the war is already won, before anyone even battles. The wars usually end up either us demolishing the opposing team or vice versa. There was never in an inbetween where the players are tied in stars. My recommendation is to match up the clans based on a win-loss ratio. For example, a clan with 50% win rate might get paired up with a 45-55% win rate clan instead of a 30% or 85% win rate clan. Anyways, this is a great game, but some things can be really frustrating.
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.
