How to Play Clash of Clans?

Clash of Clans is a strategy game where you will build your village and protect it. To do that, you will need resources and defensive buildings. The game offers troops, buildings, heroes, and much more stuff, that you will know once you start progressing. To understand the game, first, you need some basic tutorials that are in the game. For example, when you will first install the game and play on your device, there will be some tutorials that will teach you about barracks (where you will train your troops), resources (gold & elixirs, and gems), attacking guide (single player goblin stages), and some other stuff like upgrading buildings, buying army camps (the more capacity your army camp has, the more troops you can take in a battle).

Key Features of Clash of Clans

In Clash of Clans, you can do so many things, lots of things to take care about, check below to know more.

  • Firstly, you need to collect resources to make sure you can upgrade buildings in your village. From buildings, I mean, there are so many including Defensive buildings such as Cannons, Archer Towers, Wizard Towers, and so many more. Also, with resources, you can upgrade your resource storages as well, so that you can increase the limit that your village can have. Without resources, you can’t do anything in Clash of Clans. There are basically three types of resources including Gold, Elixirs, and Dark Elixirs. All of these resources can be collected from multiplayer battles, goblin stages, practice modes, etc. Gold helps you to upgrade your defensive buildings, walls, training siege machines (that unlocks when your Town Hall reaches level 12). With Elixirs, you can upgrade storage buildings, your heroes (Grand Warden), train troops, spells, and walls as well (once you reach Town Hall 9).
  • Now, let’s talk about another important thing and that’s training troops, spells, and doing multiplayer attacks. Remember, you can’t just train any troops and get three-stars from multiplayer battles because there are different types of troops, and their strategies, and also, there are so many unique bases you will find when doing multiplayer attacks. Those are real players, just like you, they will try their best to make their layout pretty good, so your strategy won’t work, so, you need to train troops and attack with unique strategies. There are ground troops and air troops, remember, air troops such as ballons, they can’t attack other air troops, like, if your opponents have something in their Clan Castle, like minions or baby dragons, they can kill your ballons pretty easily. So, there are many strategies to learn. You can train troops in Barracks and Dark Barracks. For training troops in barracks, you will need Elixirs, and for Dark Barrack Troops, you will need Dark Elixirs.
