Wow, that’s excellent progress in only 7 months, congrats. Strongholds and heroes aside, make sure you are in an alliance that can challenge you and also help you grow. The stronger the titans you can face, the better, as you put yourself in a better position to gain ascension mats.
Your doing great. You joined right about the time Zynga bought out controlling interest in SG and changed it pay for play.
I’ve been playing 3x as long and you already have more HOTM than me. So yes, you seem to be doing quite well. It took me about 10 months to max my first 5*, but I wouldn’t be in a rush for those.
Work on maxing your Rigard, and Proteus. They are top notch 4*. Other good 4* to max are Sabina and Melendor. Grimm maxed works very well with Richard on attack for me in a blue stack. Grimm first to lower defense, then Richard hits harder. Same goes for combos with Tiburtus or Gormek. The stronger your 4* the better you can do in titans and quests for mats for the 5*, and in wars.
You’re far ahead of were I was after 7 month… with the heroes it’s luck that matters most and you seem to have lots of it. Level Proteus before all else. He’s the most valuable hero you got there. He’ll allow you to defeat rare quests and event bosses, giving you access to guaranteed rare ascension items. I’ve been now playing for 18 month and I have no HOTM. You have three… that is extremely lucky for a f2p… your base is also very advanced. You should focus on your food production and storage next.
By the way, would you mind sharing a pic of your profile page? I’d be curious to compare it with my lvl. 42 profile. It took me almost 10 month to reach lvl.42. You got there in 7… that’s really fast for a f2p!
It is impossible actually and everyone with minimum knowledge in this game knows that, but no one wants to say it. Of course, Scarecrow should do the ugly job
@CertainHeredity, it is incorrect to say f2p, when you clearly used VIP. You are c2p… In the first 6 months I was online 18 hours of 24. I don’t know if existed another player as active as I was. Always VIP. Since day 1. Continuously 2 buildings in progress and after 7 months, like you pretend, I also had such base as yours. Good story though… But a c2p story.
You put your finger on it… I also thought she must be using extended VIP at least.
Could of invited friends to get free VIP no idea how long a free VIP lasts if all has been completed.
Welcome you could level a few 3* as rare quest they needed plus tournament! Mats are available on both to help you.
Neh… total invite VIP lasts 120 days and you need to have 20 invited accounts reach level 10 to get that.
So basically 3 months free if all is completed in the invite thing there is no more?
Building wise makes sense as bought VIP 3 times in 9 months of playing and not near op stats on the buildings
Definitely a good f2p player. You’ve got a good core of heroes.
But I can’t believe Grimm, Proteus and Rigard haven’t see the light yet. They are the core of 4 *.
Keep it up!
I think you underestimate how minimum my knowledge is…
LOL I was thinking just that myself.
First 7 months I played maybe 1 hour a day - I have no idea what could be accomplished in that time frame.
A true f2p joined in January last year and only in June was able to upgrade SH 20… Let aside the other buildings. I see in OP two camps at 20, storages, mines, advanced buildings… Nice job, but I’m pretty sure had a second builder.
The player I was talking about, many of you know him, here on forum -> Journey for better heroes - A painstakingly long road to TC20 for a F2P
Also, I’d like @JonahTheBard to post in here, if he does remember, how long took it for him to reach those levels in his base…
Thank you kindly for mentioning me and the long winded post I made… I am not as well known, and just another player playing for free and visits the forum very often.
Also, let’s just say it’d have taken longer for me to get to my first TC20 (approximately 6 months, no VIP) had I not had the good advices of veteran players.
I haven’t made much recent update in that post, but will probably get a few updates in with the few (if any) new non-duplicated heroes I was able to get, as long as people still reads the post and find interests in reading my self inflicting play still. Still F2P, still no VIP Pass and battling RNGesus for any variety of heroes (the past Grimforest had me kind of downtrodden, but RNG is going to RNG right?)
Nothing wrong being a F2P, but you just have to be patient for the slow progress and share of disappointments for bad results. The upside is that you might not have as many disappointing spending summons and you have more $$ in your pockets.
I started Feb '18. I spent nothing until Dec '18. I had one TC20 running by July '18 and two by August. All while playing casually, an hour or so a day. Now I’m up to almost 2 hours a day, maybe 3 on slow weekends.
I also lucked out on some EHT’s and had probably 4-5 5* (including my two HOTM’s) by the time I got TC20 going.
Difficult to say @Scarecrow
I did find the post above, which shows that it took my five months to get s single tc20 with the others around 13 and 11.
And I’m confident that my other auxiliary buildings like houses were considerably less developed as a set.
It also shows that I am on the forum too often.
I see… But I don’t think you had also the storages (food and iron) maxed, also the mines, also the tower. And a single TC 20… Not to mention several advanced buildings in OP… Only these, with a single builder, takes several months
Just a thought. Perhaps OP didnt know the term C2P - I only learned about it when I started reading stuff here and on Reddit. I’m not much of a gamer and only knew the terms F2P and P2P. Even P2W was new to me. LOL.
Humm same feeling here, I m also at 7 months mark in and my base is close to the one describe here, my forge is higher but no training camp 20 and house are realy behind, also my watchtower is 17. Still I pursache vip everymonth since june.
My farms and granary are more developped.
So in my understanding the base was developped with vip pass.
The other difference is heroes leveling, I have something like 25 4* maxed, about 20 3* and 5 or 6 5*.
