It’s a little bit of strategy, a little lesser known tricks, but overall some good ways to keep your base and troops growing bigger and stronger.
Also these easy tips can save you dozens of diamonds, costly raids, and even some time replenishing your troops.
When you switch out your troops with another type, you either pay the difference in gold (if it’s higher) or get a gold refund if the cost of the new troops is lower. For example I usually have 2-3 tanks loaded up on each landing craft (some very expensive units), and by switching to riflemen temporarily,
I get 100,000+ gold more to spend towards my upgrades.
If I cancel the troop training while it is switching troops?
I get 170,000 extra gold to spend! This also works in reverse as you can use your landing crafts as a mini-bank to store “gold” in the form of expensive troops. Might be best before logging off for the night.
Greed is good, and saving up that extra gold could help make your troops a powerhouse.
Here’s where smoke screens come in. Most often used with Warrior rushes to get them past major defenses, Smoke Screens prevent defenses from firing at your units under the smoke but also prevent your units from attacking. They are also very useful in saving your troops, especially when running strategies with Medics or Tanks. In the former case, while no units under a smokescreen can attack or be attacked, Medics will still heal all nearby units even if all the units are under the smoke screen. For a mere 2 or 3 energy you maybe be able to give your troops a much-needed break to heal up before pressing the attack.
As for tanks, they are very costly to build and losing a tank during a battle also greatly reduces your force’s damage output. Smoking a tank that is getting focused by a sniper tower could help keep it alive until your other forces destroy the threat, thus giving you an extra tank to deal damage later and saving you time and gold from having to rebuild your army.
Give this girl another life by saving her with a smokescreen.
However, a lesser known fact is that the longer you have a surplus of resources in your base, the more likely you will appear on another player’s map with those resources even though you may have spent them days ago. The reason for this is that whenever a player scouts you, a snapshot of your resources at that time will be saved. If they raid you, they will take the listed bounty even if your resources have changed since that time. Thus holding onto a surplus of resources for a long time will increase the chances people scout your base when you have a lot of resources, and as a result you will lose more from raids.
Hope these tips help you squeeze out every advantage and best of luck out there!
