Advice for New Players July 2020

Read the forums. Learn to use the search function. There’s a lot of wisdom here - and as you gain experience, you will be better able to apply the advice here to your own personal situation.

Pay attention to your play-style, and build your team accordingly. Choose your next hero based on what he/she/it will add to your current team.

Keep your expectations realistic. This game has a big luck element; sometimes you can beat a team much more powerful than yours, but not always. Sometimes you will get super lucky with summons, but definitely not most of the time.

And finally, remember - it’s only a game. :slight_smile: It’s a fun game, some people take it very seriously… but in the end, it’s only a game.

Replay levels! I know you may want to progress in the maps but to get recruits, ingredients and experience it is necessary to replay “ farm” easy levels. It is not wasting flags. Replaying a hard level and dying a bunch of times will not help you as much as winning an level you have already won.

Agree with that. The game improved (marginally, but as much as possible) when I quit doing raids or worrying about staying in diamond. Raiding is a legacy function that no longer means anything because of the programming changes and development of other content.

If I could give one piece of advice to new players (other than not to spend any money), it would be to ignore raiding.

Don’t spend money. Get the VIP pass and mayyyyyyyyyybe a super cheap offer here and there. Spending hand over fist will bring you nothing but frustration and an empty wallet.

Great game I love playing. When you think the game is to easy start using different hero’s on the world map, quest, events and other places. Make the game as challenging as you want. Save gems for pulling hero’s. Don’t fast level buildings.

Lock your prized heroes and troops. Don’t feed your first Bane to other heroes. Don’t spend gems on skipping wait time for building construction and research. Don’t automatically heed the advise of one person; always look for a second or third opinion. And most importantly, LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS on getting what you want. This game is not a sprint, it is a marathon. You’re in one very long run. Or stumble and quit while still early… quietly.

Find a good alliance!
Helpful teammates who chat, learn and grow together is key. The game is fun, and sometimes a little frustrating, but the people you’ll get to know are what makes it great.
Don’t stop looking for a good home until you find one.

3* makes 4* and 4* makes 5*

TC20!

Seriously. Get it as soon as you can.

No, it’s not guaranteed to give you a 5* every week (or month, or months). But it should eventually start dripping out 4* heroes that you can use in the meantime while you’re waiting on those precious legendaries.

And if you’re not patient enough to wait, you need more better heroes NOW?

Four TC20s.

You should eventually reach a point to where you have more heroes than AMs to finish them. Then you can cut back to one TC20, and set the others at 1, 2, 11 or 19 while you wait for those unfarmables to slowly start dribbling in.

Just goof around in the game and have fun. Don’t spend any money, because the game isn’t going to be around long enough for it to really matter, and nothing in the game is worth what it costs.

Put your expectation extremely low. Your pulls will always give you Dawas. If your summon is not Dawa, then you are already lucky.

Don’t dream of getting HotM. There are people with 3 years of playing time that never get any HotM.

Having A maxed 4* is better than two 3.70 5*. They are cheaper, faster, and easier to level. They are your real backbone, not 5*

Mystic vision is your friend. Check it 3x a day

Always try to complete 2 monster chest and 1 or 2 hero chest daily.

Do not buy any offer that did not guaranteed the item you’ll get. You’ll never get what you want. In fact, its better not to buy any offer at all. You can get it all from other source for free. You’ll only need time because time is money (you can pay with time instead with real money)

Remember your real life is your priority. This is just a game.

I completely disagree with this. Raids are the best way to try out new heroes, try out new hero combinations to see how the synergy works with your chosen heroes, try out new war teams, etc.

But ignore the cups and leaderboard (unless you enjoy being competitive).

First to understand…

This game is designed for slow progress, rushing and shortcut does not guarantee your success or enjoyment in the long term…

If you are hooked to the game and want to explorer things a bit faster, buy VIP and build army of 3* within the first 3 months and let’s float along the game progress. Participate in very 3* activities and do not expect anything much during the first 8 months.

You will probably land at TC20… and you will know what to do next

-Find an alliance that encourages and allows you to grow.

-Challenge yourself to become a better player.

-Most negative people think the game is the problem, but it’s the user. You control the experience. It doesn’t have to be awful.

-Don’t let negative forum users ruin your experience with their narrative.

-If you’re going to complain, complain ridiculously.
