During the Dr. Terror invasion (preferably the second one; the one with a larger map since you are using Tank/medic) boost your resource rewards (and gunboat energy statues if necessary) and just clear out as many bases(including Dr. Terror and player bases) while trying not to lose any tanks or medics.

The idea is to store your resources in your map, not at your base where it can get raided and stolen. Trying to store resources at your base for a big upgrade is pretty much always a bad idea.

I just did this and got enough resources to upgrade my HQ to 16 AND upgrade my tanks to 6 with minimal diamond usage despite being raided twice between terror days, so thanks for the advice!

Letting my VPs drop by not clearing player bases as they raided and then re-rolling the higher-level ones also worked a treat.

Is anyone having an issue where when using mobile data boom beach doesn't save changes nor allow you to scout/attack bases? The phone I use has always worked for it, and when I switch to wifi when I'm at home it works perfectly, but even when I have a full signal logging in to boom beach shows me an accurate depiction of my base and I can queue up a new building or whatever, but after I log out and log back in it's as if I'd never selected the building nor collected any resources from buildings/boats and attempting to access an enemy base causes it to hang. Logging in with the same device ten minutes later on wifi and there's no problems.

Is anyone else experiencing a weird bug where the number of alerts near the map icon thing doesn't clear off once you've actually cleared captured villages, viewed battles etc?

I log in, it tells me I have 10 alerts, I navigate to the map and click the alerts button and only two of them are new, lather, rinse, repeat with a slightly higher number next time.

I think they changed it so that it counts another player scouting your base as an alert. In the activity log you'll see a little gray bar with an eye symbol on it. Those pop up every day to tell you how many times you were scouted in the previous 24 hrs.

16 appears to be a stumbling block for a lot of people. i think there is a reason why there are 4 levels between 16 and 17. How many victory points do you have?

The way i see it, I'm never going to afford the next sculptor without significantly improvin my defences so I'm not raided twice a day. I'm no longer attacking player bases just so my vp will go down and I'll no longer be matched with raiders 12 levels above me (I'm on 295 right now)

I did it for aesthetics.

I say it every time this comes up but dropping VP means shittier raid targets. It's not clash. Focus on GBE, th, TD, and RR statues, at least one each mp wise, with extra slots going to extra RR or GBE to farm faster.

I will admit two things:

1) I already maxed my HQ and I was hq18 or 19 pre loot nerf
2) both pre and post nerf, all my big ticket upgrades came from boosting my statues and tmed clearing my map in a binge session to avoid getting looted

Followed your advice, am now proud owner of a sculptor upgrade in progress.

What's generally accepted as the better blue statue upgrade, offence or defence? Im thinking with defence you're forcing your opponents to waste a bit more gbe, and rockets aside youre going to do more damage from maybe getting one more shot in from any one tower than for a 25% damage upgrade when you consider how fast they go down, but would appreciate advice as ive got nothing but bue gems at the moment.

i think building hp matters more, because damage doesn't matter if they're shocked and not able to fire, whereas if they have extra HP they may last through the shock to shoot again.

Under my current capabilities at base HQ16? 5*2xtanks + 2*3xMedics, Barrage and artillery the shock launcher and the boom cannon near it, land everything in rightmost corner, run them up the right hand side of the base to build more energy for barrage/art of topmost boom cannon and stun of the paired cannons in the middle, see if there's a 'pocket' of safe zone in the top right where you can hit the HQ and leftmost boom can't hit you.

E: also share your attempt with task force, I'd like to see it.

I would kill the lower right boom cannon with barrage/arty as well as the shock launcher then land my tank/med or grenadier/med on the left side and run them up the left.

Is this game still alive? I recently reinstalled and started progressing again but I'm at the point where you need stone to progress but can only win small amounts from the AI/other players, and its a massive pain in the rear end.

I'm generally too lazy to actively attack other bases, so I focus mainly on passive income. I keep my medal count low (im at around 275 medals at HQ20), and have almost 50% in building hp statues. I think the combination of these two makes me a poison pill to other players - my home base has not been successfully raided in months (rarely attacked) and my resource bases are pretty secure.

My biggest problem is I cant really capture those level 60+ resource bases. I can field 18 max level tanks and 8 max level medics but theres usually just way too many boom cannons.

Yeah I just do Dr. T, the attacking boat one, and ops, because getting raided by other people was actually losing me more resources than I was gaining from raids. I still get raided every now and then, but most of the time it's a failure.

I wish the crab event would come back. I liked how many resources i got from that!

What, HQ 21 and just over 600 medals here, you are saying you have almost 50% in building health statues and complaining you struggling to clear bases, The answer is right there get rid of some of your defence statues and get some more offensive ones. I am finishing of upgrades because I have too much resources just maxed out my gold storage again.

Does anyone else think that since the change to daily rewards has actually given a clear impetus to increase your medal count, matchmaking has suddenly gotten a whole lot better?

I've jumped from 280-359 medals in about a fortnight, but my matchmaking with player bases seems to be a lot fairer, and I'm getting people at max about 3 levels higher than my level rather than 8-10 levels higher.

'CUZ HE JUST GOT DUNKED ON!

Yeah, i agree with the matchmaking being better. I'm a lvl 49 with ~465 medals and I'm finally seeing player bases less than lvl 54. Its made the game more fun because I hit a period of doldrums where all the blackguard bases were lvl 59-60 and player bases were 54+. Made raiding a lot harder and I was making very little headway.

The new Cryo troop is absolutely useless. They stand in front of Heavies, and basically want to die.
