Mine is I always craft the number of items to get to a total stored of a multiple of 5, even though as soon as I use one The system breaks down!
+1 for me
i also used to have to resist the urge to feed feeders away as soon as i got them. of course, the first time i had a 3* reach 3/50 with a special skill level of ⅜, made me stop with that pretty quickly …
Multiples of 10. Always in 10’s
I do 4 tc 11s. One has all my recruits. The other 3 i like to have same days and hrs of training.
Also like to wait 3 hrs before collecting all food and iron
And i never raid within an hr of war hits
Before I go to war I check my boards, do some farming or something.
If things are really bad I continue to play until the boards improve a little.
If I get half a dozen diamonds of course I’m upset, dang, I should’ve gone straight to war!
Kind of embarrassing: I have to knock the dragon out of the sky before I do a 10 or 30 pull. Logically I know it doesn’t change anything but… I got Kingston last Atlantis and Gefjon today.
I do the same exact thing! Hahahahaha
Practically everything I do in this game is irrational. But okay, I’ll list some of the main ones that are almost certainly signs of OCD tendencies.
I, like you, am also a fan of having things in multiples of 5. If I have excess resources I need to use, I’ll check my stockpiles… if I see that I have 267 antidotes, and enough mats to craft several hundred more, I will craft exactly 233 of them.
I get very annoyed when I level up a 3* hero to 50 and it’s special skill doesn’t get up to 8. It’s still not done!!! There was a time when I would single feed them, hoping for them to level up. Quickly figured out what a waste that was. Decided to wait until I had enough feeders to guarantee 100% ascension. A couple of times, I only had 9/10 of them… and made the foolish mistake of thinking “hey 90% chance, that’s practically 100%, right? What could possibly go wrong?” Oh, right, I forgot how much RNG absolutely HATES MY GUTS!!! Will only do 10/10 on those now.
99% of the time, I only do on-color feeding. Unless I have a hero that is very very close to leveling up… I look at that stupid bar and how close it is, and say “@#$% it! I’m feeding an Aife to my red hero! Yeah, that’s right, I did it! I’m a freaking rebel, man!”
If I’m about to level up and there is no titan to kill… I will play season 1 province 1 quests until I’m about 50 xp away from leveling, then put my phone down until the next titan appears.
I keep exactly 3 days worth of recruits in TC11 and at least 30 days worth in TC20 at all times. The 3 days worth is in case I get busy for a couple of days. I try not to allow myself to skip more than that.
Embleming heroes… ideally I like to emblem each finished 4*+ hero up to level 4 at least whenever possible. Then to 7, then 10, then 12, etc. I get a little bit annoyed when I only have enough emblems to bring them to one of the “in between” tiers.
Get very annoyed when my food or iron gets full (I know, I know, it’s certainly better than the alternative… seems like I always either have too much or not enough). I will intentionally go and craft, build, or research stuff on purpose just to get rid of excess, even if I have no use at all for the buildings or items themselves.
If I get a costume for a hero, I must keep 2 copies of that hero. I must level up both the original and the costume to max (including max special). Then, once they are both complete, I must set one permanently with costume and one permanently without. No switching back and forth later. At that point, they are two completely different heroes in my mind.
Boards… if I get bad boards initially, I might hold off on doing anything important. Wait an hour or so before trying again. Conversely… if I get good boards, I will keep going until I start to get a nervous feeling that my luck is about to run dry.
Probably got 100+ other weird irrational things I do. Far too many to list.
Wow. I’m speechless at the dedication and focus described in this statement.
Same here but I’ll add some of my own:
I have to wait a minimum of one hour between Raid Tournaments hits to allow RNG to reset rather than doing all at once.
Even though you only have to kill 11 ducks for PoV, I can’t leave any left over from that flock
That’s all I can think of right now.
I subtly feel that it’s worse feeding a weaker colour hero to a stronger colour hero than the opposite. I have to force myself not to care!
It’s very much an OCD thing. It’s not rational at all, and it’s probably an overall terrible game strategy.
Other ones that come to mind:
When embleming heroes, if it’s a mostly offensive hero, I will go for the sword path. If it’s mostly a defensive / support hero, I go for health and shields. When forced to pick between health and shields, I compare each hero to other heroes of similar level. If the hero I’m embleming has lower shield strength than others in its class, I go with shield; and vice versa. I like to keep my heroes balanced.
I almost always only level up one hero in each color at one time. Occasionally I will branch out and work on two at a time… in those cases, the hero whose special is not maxed yet eats all the 1* feeders. The one whose special is already done eats all the 2s and above. If I pull a 3*+ feeder, I check my roster to make sure their twin(s) are already finished. If not finished, I feed them their twin. If finished already, I allocate the dupe hero to whatever other hero in that color that I’m currently working on.
I like to keep at least 10 WE and 10 titan flasks. I will gladly use titan flasks to help kill a titan when necessary as long as I have more than 10. WE flasks I will gladly burn when there is a guaranteed quest item I need, and don’t feel like waiting for flags.
Though when it comes to flasking, I do not like using a flask if I am more than 50% towards getting my next “natural flag”. By that I mean… I won’t use a WE flask if I have 1 WE flag and am about to get another. I will wait until I have 3, then autoplay S1 8-7 before using a flask. When it comes to titan flasks… if I am going to get another flag in 1 hour and the titan is not going to escape for say another 2 hours, I will wait until I get my “natural” flag before using a flask.
Same. I know some people joked on here that they leave one alive to warn the rest of the ducks… if I kill one, I have to kill them all. Even if it’s not in the PoV daily.
I have a similar issue when it comes to offensive attacking. I have been told on here that special skill attacks do not count as elemental attacks, but I still feel like my red heroes’ special attacks will be more effective when targeting a green enemy vs. a blue one.
I’m guessing you don’t have any 5* costumes then…
I did that for Tibs, simply because I got tired of swapping his costume back and forth for titans.
Most I only use the costume or not though. Until the tower, when c Rigard and Mel became MUCH worse than their normal versions.
I like to have battle items in multiples of 5s. But if I’m down to 11 tornadoes and need to burn just a bit of iron then I’ll only make 2.
Which leads me to my real insanity… I don’t like being low on ANYTHING. If I’m below 1M food or iron I consider it low. I’m usually hovering around 2M just so I don’t go below 1M if I need to ascend someone. If I get below 10 of a 4 star battle item, 30 of a 2 star, or 50 of a 1 star I’ll build more before using them!
I’d realistically be better off running lower on food/iron. I know this. But I can’t make myself do it.
Not yet, unfortunately. Though even if I did… if I had 2 copies of that hero, I’d be keeping them anyway. Unlike some people here, I don’t have 30 maxed 5* heroes. If I happen to pull 5 Vivicas in a row? I’m keeping every single one of them, at least until I have enough other yellows to replace her. And even then, if I have her costume also, I’m going to keep 2 of her.
Not saying I will finish both of them anytime soon… far from it. I still have several twins that aren’t done yet. But they all go into my “to do… eventually” list.
That list is currently full enough to keep me busy for a long, long time to come.
EDIT: I do have 3 Richards. 1 is done. Will start working on a second one if I don’t get any other blues worth working on.
Same here! Yet I constantly run out of backpacks. Kills me.
I have over 1000 rugged shirts saved up but I only use them occasionally because well, I don’t want to run short on ham in case I need to emblem somebody or something.
So I also need to keep my ham & iron supplies balanced, God forbid one is drastically lower than the other.
I crack a beer, then pour chicken soup on my head and dance around the room when I do a 10 or 30 pull screaming the said hero’s name I want. Then down the beer.
I tried that once, but I must have used the wrong brand of soup or something.
Keep emblems and troop levels equal.
Mats 2x what’s needed, so I always have a spare
Stockpiling ingredients … but not actually “making” the items until I need them
I don’t think it’s OCD as much as being the youngest sibling and a dad that spent his entire childhood in Boy Scouts… A decade in the navy … then spent my life being the Rainman of “being prepared” —
I have 11 maxed… 12 soon. Odds that I’ll ever level a second identical 5 is extremely low simply because the materials are so rare.
I do know people with 30+ maxed though… and they’re STILL rare. But they’re overflowing with 3 star ascension mats. I’m not having THAT issue yet…
Off topic, but wow, I’m having a lot of fun reading this thread! Glad I’m not alone in my strange “must use flags” “must save flasks in multiples of 5”
