I AM currently drafting an apology letter.
“Dear clan mates. It is with great regret that I write this letter. Very recently, I have failed to oversee the progress of my village. But more so, I have treated the last clan war against (real clan name withheld for privacy) with a degree of neglect resulting in a tough and bitter loss. I humbly beg penance and absolution from you...”
The rest of the letter is too personal for publication.
A few days ago, I decided to download one of the apps that mobile games developer Supercell was promoting on its Clash of Clans (COC) game. It’s called Clash Royale—not Royal (because that lowercase “e” makes all the difference in the world. Why would a James Bond flick use it, right?). The characters featured in the game play are more or less based on the characters in COC, although new characters and rewards are introduced in the latest game.
If anybody here is new to Clash Royale, here are a few tips:
Don’t use your gems as much as possible. I don’t know what else they’re for. But I’m pretty sure an update in the near future will show us some reason why these gems are precious.
There are “chests” in the game (like silver or golden) that a player collects every after a win. These chests contain new characters, gold and gems. These chests take time before they “open.” Some take three hours (silver), some take eight (gold). So for starters, open a silver one during the day and a gold one when you’re about to sleep. You’re welcome.
Pacing is key. And counter-attacking is also an option. Once you start playing, you’ll see what I mean. When I play chess, I hate having to play the black pieces because I’m used to “attacking” first and fast; I prefer playing white. But in Clash Royale, playing “black” could be key.
