Chaturbate Guide

Hi there! I am from Russia, and I’ve been working for Chaturbate for the past 4 months and i’d like to share my earnings on Chaturbate, just like the other cam girls who published before. I signed up at the end of February because i heard it was a great cam site and i wanted to try. I already had experience with adult sites because i worked for some months for an adult cam agency in my home country.

I decided i wanted to make more money and started my research. One of things at the top of my list was to work for a free chat cam site. Working for private only sites can be extremely boring at times, the time passes and there’s not much to do until someone asks for a private. I wanted to change that and be able to do the shows my way. Chaturbate gave me that and to be honest with you, there’s a massive difference.

The first days are a bit difficult, because no one knows you and you have to make yourself visible. It’s the only way to bring customers and money. Luckily Chaturbate’s audience has been better than i expected. They proved to be really helpful right from the beginning and the most veterans users there always tried to help me. It’s like they were in love with me haha.

I’m not saying that Chaturbate is free from idiots, beggars or whiners, but they are quickly banned and they are not really a problem.

The feature i like the most is without a doubt the apps and bots. It makes your life so much easier! Once you configure them properly, you will only have to worry about your show, the tips you get and to say “thank you” to those who tipped. That frees up lots of time so you can concentrate on what’s really important. Making money.

Since i joined in February my earnings have been steadily increasing, which is normal because i get more and more followers every day and i hope to keep it that way. On you can find useful tips and tricks to help you make money. This is not rocket science, once you make a good shows, earnings will come. Spread the word and promote yourself on social media.

Before joining Chaturbate i already had an Instagram account with some followers that helped obviously. You can do the same. take some sexy selfies and upload them and you’ll see how much followers you get in no time.

Well, enough chit chat. You came here wanting to know how much i make on Chaturbate. These are my earnings from Dec 16 to Dec 31 2015.

More than $1500 by working 3 hours a day from home in just 15 days!. There are other girls that earn twice as much, but i don’t have the time or the will to do it. Anyway, those are great earnings in my opinion. Other cam girls can say the same, check Kate’s opinion on the best webcam sites and you’ll see why choosing the right one is so important.

There’s a lot of money to be made on Chaturbate

Hi, i am another cam girl here on Chaturbate. I just wanted to tell you how much i earned on Chaturbate to encourage other girls to try this amazing cam site. Like many others, i love sex and I felt interested right away by Chaturbate and the freedom they give to the performers. I’ve always been kind of naughty and felt like a perfect opportunity to make money.

As you know, working as a cam girl requires some dedication. To make real money you have to take things seriously and never give up. My first days were not the best but i changed a few things i was doing wrong, like changing my working hours all the time and then my earnings started to grow.

It’s quite funny to remember now all the things i did wrong but here i go, remember this and do not make the same mistakes:

  • Try to work everyday, at least a couple hours. You will be easier to find if you keep a regular schedule.
  • Do not change your habits too often. First try to broadcast at different times if possible, and see how well it goes for you and then try to keep broadcasting in the time frame that works best for you.
  • Try to offer something new to your viewers from time to time. Maybe bringing a friend to have sex with him, or a new sex toy, a new location… use your imagination.
  • This is quite basic, but remember to use the apps and bots, and use them to let your viewers know how much tokens you want to take action.
  • If you are having a difficult start, try to make a different show. Some girls start their shows almost naked and earn money by using sex toys or having sex with someone. The classic show where the model gets naked when the tips reach the target is not the only way. You can try many different strategies that work equally well. Spy the other girls and you will probably get some ideas.
  • It’s important to sell videos and photos. You can make a set of photos and upload it to your chat room. The same goes for videos. Once uploaded, you don’t have to be online to earn money this way. You can record yourself having a shower or having sex with someone and sell the videos for 400 tokens each. All the high earning girls do this and consider it a key feature

And now it’s bragging time! Here’s how much i earned on Chaturbate in December 2015. I hope it gives you the motivation to try!

Brave Trials Strategy Guide

Brave Trials is a free to play Action RPG Game / App on the Android platform. It was created by IGG, the same company that made Castle Clash & Clash of Lords. The premise of the game is that you are a hero (wayfaerer) who has the special ability to enlist mystical creatures (Faens) to fight by your side. You journey on a quest to rescue a kidnapped and defeat powerful enemies who seek to do evil.


There are 3 classes in Brave Trials: Mage, Fighter & Rogue. Mages specialize in long range combat & casting spells while Fighters & Rogues specialize in close range combat. Fighters have a higher base health and defense so they are usually the tanks while Rogues have higher attack values and focus on fast assassination techniques. I have played all 3 of the classes and they are all viable, however Rogues & Fighters seem to get the most play time. There is usually at least one of each class type in the top of the leaderboards so I would just pick whatever suits your playstyle. I have listed some generic information about the classes below, or you can see detailed information about each class here.

Mage Average Low High Average Low Low Average
Fighter Average Low Average High Average Average High
Rogue High Low High Low Low Low Average


Faens are your pets or summons which play an integral part in the storyline of the game as well as account for a large portion of your power. You can summon two Faen to fight by your side and an additional 2 assist Faen which support you off screen. Finally you can also pair up to 6 buddy Faen’s in your inventory to complete Faen combo’s which increases your active Faen’s power.

  • Grade 1 Faen (White): These are the weakest Faen in the game. They are almost exclusively used to level up stronger Faens.
  • Grade 2 Faen (Green): These Faen are relatively weak and are usually used to level up Stronger Faens.
  • Grade 3 Faen (Blue): These Faen are average strength Faen which provide good power in the early levels (1-25) of the game. Once you have enough Grade 4+ Faen these are usually converted into Gold/Faessence/Soulstones.
  • Grade 4 Faen (Purple): These are used by most mid level players (25-35) and can be obtained relatively easily through daily rewards, shards and free draws. 2 Identical Grade 4 Faen can be upgraded to a Grade 5 Faen. Once you have enough Grade 5+ Faen these are usually converted into Gold/Faessence/Soulstones.
  • Grade 5 Faen (Purple): These are top grade Faen and are used by the mid-high level players in the game. Once you have enough Grade 5 Faen, you should start looking for other Grade 5 Faen which combo with each other in order to further increase your strength. I would not recommend converting these Faen unless you have a big surplus of Faen as they could potentially be used for a combo in the future.
  • Grade 6 Faen (Gods): There are four grade 6 Faen’s in the game and they are extremely rare. They can be obtained through a game promotion or through extremely lucky Faen draws.
  • Grade 7 Faen (Unique): There are four grade 7 Faen’s in the game which are the strongest Faen in the game that I know of. As far as I know they can only be obtained through extremely lucky Faen draws.

Faen Slots

As mentioned above, there are different slots where you can summon Faen which affect your power in different ways. I will outline each slot below:

  • Combat Faen: Your first two Faen slots are your Combat Faen. These are the Faen which are summoned into the world which you can see floating next to your character. They have a regular attack and then a special attack. While the attack animations and area of effect differs for different Faen, the damage values for all Faen of the same grade are identical. What this means is that typically you just want to summon your highest grade Faen in your two combat slots. Your Faen’s “assist” skill is irrelevant as it isn’t active when a Faen is placed in a combat slot.
  • Assist Faen: Your next two Faen slots are your Assist Faen. In this slot, your Faen’s combat skills are irrelevant because they aren’t active so the only thing that you should worry about is their assist type and value. There are 3 types of Assist Faen: Attack, Defense & Heal. Attack Faen boost your ATK/MATK/SATK values by a percentage or increase your CRIT/CRIT DMG values. Defense Faen boost your DEF/MDEF/SDEF values by a percentage or increase your BLK/EVADE values. Finally, Healing Faen heal you by a % of your SATK value. While they all have their pro’s and cons, typically you will want to use either Attack or Defense Faen during duels and PvP combat since the fights are so short, whereas healing Faen are nice for long trials. You can mix and match your assist Faen and you can even stack your assist Faen for double the bonus.
  • Buddy Faen: Your final Faen “slot” is actually a page of 6 buddy Faen slots. Buddy faen only help you to complete Faen combo’s which are extra passive bonuses above and beyond your equipment. Your buddy Faen’s level, grade and combat/assist skills are completely irrelevant as they are inactive during battle. For this reason, typically you want to keep your buddy Faen level 1 with no upgrades. If you did accidentally level up or upgrade your buddy Faen, you can rebirth them to regain those stones/faessence as long as the Faen is Grade 3+ and has been upgraded. (Quick Tip: If you want to delevel a Faen but don’t see it in the rebirth section, make sure the Faen is not equipped in any slot and also make sure it is upgraded at least to +1. You cannot rebirth active Faen or Faen that have not been upgraded)


Trials (Dungeons) are the core gameplay component of Brave Trials. Normal Trials are directly connected to the storyline of the game and you can only progress as you beat consecutive trials. There are also special trials which unlock additional rewards. Each completed trial consumes 5 stamina. You can not do any more trials when your stamina reaches 0. I will explain the different types of trials below:

  • Normal Trials: The standard story line trials which reward XP, Gold & a chance at receiving upgrade stones.
  • Rare/Boss Trials: While completing the story you will encounter rare & boss trials which have an additional chance to receive a Faen or Equipment Shard on top of the Gold/XP/Upgrade Stones.
  • Elite Trials: Once you complete a boss dungeon in the story mode you unlock that bosses Elite Trial or dungeon. Essentially you are just repeating the same boss dungeon at a higher difficulty for slightly more rewards. You can only complete 3 Elite trials per day.
  • Party Trials: These are special team-oriented trials which can be completed 3 times per day per level and do not consume stamina. Party trials can be completed by up to 4 simultaneous players and can only be accessed by players above the level requirement (level 10/20/30/40). If you die during a party trial, you can stay dead and still receive the victory rewards as long as someone in your party is able to complete the trial.
  • Ancient World Trials: The ancient world contains special trials which can be completed once per day and do not consume stamina. Completing the boss trials in the Ancient World will reward you with crests to socket your equipment with. Completing an entire level (8 trials) of ancient world dungeons will allow you to open a chest once per day with additional crests and rewards.


Like any RPG game, your equipment is an integral part to your success. Each equipment slot benefits different aspects of your character. Helms increase your HP. Chest Armor, Boots & Necklaces increase your Defensive Power. Swords & Rings increase your Offensive Power. Each piece of equipment can be enhanced with Gold (& lodestones for jewelry) up to 2x your current class level. There are 14 grades or levels of equipment per slot, with the base stats and enhance +bonuses increasing for each consecutive grade.

  • Grade 1 Equipment (White): The weakest equipment in the game. As soon as you find green equipment immediately convert your white equipment for gold and lodestones and equip and enhance your new equipment.
  • Grade 2-4 Equipment (Green): There isn’t much difference in most green equipment. For the most part, the enhanced per level amounts are the same for all green equipment of the same slot, the only thing that changes is slightly higher base stats per grade.
  • Grade 5-7 Equipment (Blue): Pretty good equipment which will stay with you for quite a while. However, the enhancements per level are pretty much the same for all grade 5-7 equipment.
  • Grade 8-14 Equipment (Purple): Top tier equipment. The base stats and enhancements per level vary greatly from a Grade 8 to Grade 14 piece of equipment. Purple jewelry also provides bonuses to specific Faen when equipped. For this reason, most purple jewelry you find will stay with you for a while, and it’s important to make sure that you are equipping your highest grade equipment on the Faen which will benefit the most from it.


  • Gems (Blue Gem): Earned & Used for a lot of things. Purchasing gems with real money increases your star level, which in turn allows you to unlock special rewards and purchases only available to star members.
  • Gold (Gold Coin): Gold is earned through trials and quests. It is used to upgrade equipment and do Faerin runs
  • Prestige (Blue/White/Red Banner): Prestige is obtained through the arena and by participating in world boss trials. You can use prestige to buy upgrade stones and Thanatos (Grade 5 Faen) in arena.
  • Soulstones (Blue Orbs): Soulstones are obtained by converting Grade 3+ (Blue) Faen. They can be used to buy things in the Bazaar.
  • Stamina (Green Circle): Stamina is used to complete trials. 5 STA is used per trial run. Stamina is recovered at a rate of 5 stamina per 30 minutes or you can consume stamina bread to instantly recover a portion of your stamina.
  • Lodestones (Purple Stones): Lodestones are obtained by converting items or through rare trials. They can then be used to upgrade necklaces and rings
  • Faessence (Green Orb): Faessence is obtained by converting Grade 3+ (Blue) Faen. It can then be used to level up your Faen. White & Green Faen can also be used to level up other Faen.
  • Potions of Potential (Green Pots): Potions of Potential can be earned through duels, arena fights, or rare trials. They are used to train your Faen
  • Upgrade Stones (Gold Stones): Upgrade stones are earned in rare trials or can also be purchased with prestige in the arena exchange store. The stones are used to upgrade your Faen
  • Equipment/Faen Shards (Pictures): You can collect shards through rare trials, duels, arena fights or through the bazaar/war exchange store. Once enough shards have been collected you can fuse/exchange them for completed equipment/Faen

Hay Day Strategy Guide

Those of you who read me regularly (and thank you) know that I’m a big fan of Clash of Clans. Of course, given itsmassive popularity, this is hardly worth saying. Pretty much everyone is a Clash of Clans fan, or about to become one. But, popular as it is, I think it’s a little sad that this popularity has stunted a lot of the conversation about one of Supercell’s other big games, Hay Day. Like CoC, Hay Day has complex strategies, time-based challenges, and copious amounts of resource management, all of which must be competently navigated in order for you to progress.

But since it’s a completely different game (with completely different goals and design aesthetics), this means there’s a whole new set of strategies and techniques that a player has to master in order to do well. Some would just say play until you master it. In problem solving terms, this is what is referred to as “brute force”: trying every possible combination of solutions until you get the set up that meets your needs. Yes, this can be just as annoying, boring, and time-consuming as it sounds. It’s much better to have a system in place, and a few tried but true tips to get you started. I would say take all the Hay Day tips you can get and leap frog the competition in a matter of days. Sounds good to you?

Below I present some of the best tips and tricks that will be sure to give you the competitive advantage, no matter your experience level. Keep in mind some of these secrets are more beginner and some more advanced.

There is no silver bullet to becoming a Hay Day master, the best advice I can give you is to practice daily for hours and make sure you follow this guide.

“The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer… form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.” – Andrew Jackson

Best Hay Day Tips

Without keeping you waiting any longer, let’s dig into some of these tips you’ve all been waiting for. If you don’t already have the app installed, simply head over to the App Store on your iPhone or Android and download the app. It’s completely free but there are some in app purchases that will make the game go by a bit quicker.

Usually these are in the form of currency packs which you can use to speed things along. Some people will sink a lot of cash into these games and “buy power” (in game design terms, these players are called “whales”), and some have set up elaborate workarounds to keep from ever having to pay a cent. Personally, I like to strike a middle-ground: since I enjoy these games so much, I like to make sure the developers get a little something from me, so I might put a couple bucks into it if I can afford it. But you don’t need to pay anything in order to have a good time.

1. Make Money Fast

Let’s be honest, many of us playing Hay Day just want to make money and a lot of it, fast. (By this, I mean the in-game money. Although, I would like to make real world money fast, too. But there are better ways to do that than by playing Hay Day.) There are some ways that will get you there a bit quicker than others and planting wheat is one of them. I recommend planting wheat as often as you can and in any nook and cranny that you can afford.

Once you get the wheat crops up and growing you can harvest them and sell off what you don’t need. This is probably the easiest way to make money in Hay Day but it’s equally as boring so often times people want to do a bit more to make their money.

If you’re invested in the long hall of farming wheat, you can always use the extra money to buy more land that will then give you more places to grow and harvest your wheat.

2. Grab Some Diamonds

We all know coins are a useful currency in Hay Day but ultimately they pale in comparison to the diamond. If you can, make sure you get your hands on as many diamonds as you can. Of course, you can always buy packs of diamonds as an in-app purchase, but there are plenty of ways you can also earn them in-game. To help you in that quest, here are a few ways you can score diamonds.

  • You likely know that you get 1 or 2 diamonds every time you level up.
  • If you want an extra diamond, just follow Hay Day on Facebook. Easiest diamond you’ll ever get. Once you’re a fan, you can enter contests that Hay Day promotes on their Facebook page.
  • On top of that, to continue to encourage you to link Hay Day and Facebook, if you login to Facebook with Hay Day you will get another 5 diamonds.
  • As you progress through the game you can get more diamonds by completing an achievement.
  • You’ll find diamonds in mystery boxes sometimes so keep an eye out for them.
  • If you find a movie ticket this is a way for Hay Day to make extra money. Basically, they’re selling a 30 second trailer of another app for a free diamond. Ingenious advertising if you ask me.
  • Lastly, if you get to level 24 then you can get tons of diamonds just by mining, but you will have to make it to that level first.

3. Hay Day Newspaper Tip

You may have seen newspapers around when playing Hay Day and didn’t think anything about them. It can be easy to miss, but newspapers can be a super quick and easy way to make extra money. Don’t limit yourself to just using your own newspaper, you can steal someone else’s newspaper and use that as well. That’s right, although this is a much more peaceful game than Clash of Clans, there is the same opportunity for you to screw over your fellow players that you have in those games. Be warned, though: they can just as easily screw with you.

Look around for sales as they’re always worth it. You may find 5 for 400 sale for construction equipment, goods, dynamite, etc. Go ahead and spend the money to buy it and you can then sell them individually for a mark up. Usually, I find you can sell them for about 200 coins a piece. Super easy money.

4. Don’t Rush A Sale

You may find yourself in a situation where someone wants to buy your goods but won’t pay as much as you’d like for them. Given that you are within a realistic range, it will always be helpful to hold out and wait until you get a better offer.

Make sure you maintain your game so that you’re never desperately in need for money because you will be forced to sell things at lower than ideal prices. I find that selling your goods is best done along the roadside shops, where you can get better prices.

The creators of Hay Day want the game to be as realistic as possible so they will build in a natural flux of supply and demand where you have to balance both throughout the game. Of course, economics 101 says to sell when there is high demand and low supply and buy when there is low demand and high supply. This will be a quick way to get ahead.

5. Utilize Time Of Day / Night

Many users won’t think too much about optimizing their game to work for them while they’re sleeping, but for an extra leg up, you can do just that. Even if you’re not playing Hay Day that doesn’t mean the game has stopped and you will notice there is a gap of time while you sleep or are at school or work that you can make the best use out of.

I would recommend planting crops, specifically ones that take a long time to yield, during the evenings or right before a long stretch where you can’t check on your game. Don’t plant the easy crops like wheat or corn, but stick with indigo, pumpkin, etc. These crops take hours to yield so they will be growing while you’re sleeping.

Then, when you wake up all you have to do is harvest them and you’re ready to go. You can also use the same technique if you want to with many other things. If you find a process or production takes a long time then just start it right before you go to bed and it will be ready to go when you wake up.

6. Get New Deals

If you check out the newspaper and don’t like any of the deals, you don’t have to worry. These deals can be swapped out for new deals just like that. When you get a newspaper deal it won’t automatically load a new deal if you recheck the newspaper.

However, a little secret is that if you close completely out of the Hay Day app and reopen it then it will show up with new Hay Day newspaper deals. If you’re on an iPhone you will want to double click the home button and swipe up on the Hay Day app to get it to completely close the app. To close an app on Android, go to settings, then Application Manager. From there, search for Hay Day, tap on it and tap the force stop button. This will completely close out of the app.

If this is getting a bit too technical for you, you can simply turn your iPhone or Android off then restart it to in turn close the app.

7. Maintain Crops

You may want to just pull the trigger and sell all of your harvest and not maintain your crops, but this will limit your growth in the long term if you don’t manage all of your crops. Make sure you always have seeds left over in your silo, don’t ever sell them all as you will eventually just have to buy them again from another farmer at a higher price.

Also, keep in mind that every crop you plant will double the crop’s yield after harvest. No one wants to waste diamonds buying seeds that you used to have and sold for a few coins. It’s also good to have a steady supply of wheat, corn, and feed for your animals to maintain on.

8. Keep Playing

One of the best advice I’ve ever gotten is to continue to play often and whenever I get a free moment. I’ve found if you stagger short and long play times throughout the day that is the best way to continue to stay in the groove of playing and continue to maintain your crops, animals, etc.

Hay Day creators, Supercell, cleverly made Hay Day the same way as they made Clash of Clans. The game is run on a server and thus it never really stops. This continues to drive it’s players to constantly check it and play throughout the day. Therefore, respecting how the game was built, it’s important to continue to play it regularly.

9. Get The Treasure

The last tip I’ll give you is to help you get treasure from treasure chests. To find treasure search around for a tool box on someone’s farm. If you find that the box is closed, try tapping anywhere except the x button. Next, you’ll want to go to another farm and find the same tool box.

If it’s unlocked, take whatever treasure is inside. Now go back to your tool box and you should have all of the tools available. If it doesn’t work, continue to try several times until you get it.

That wraps up this guide and hopefully gave you a good sense of the Hay Day tips you’ll need to succeed at the game. It’s incredibly fun and takes a bit of hard work, but with time and effort you’ll get the hang of it quickly.

Boom Beach Strategy Guide

Afternoon Commander, and welcome to the shores of Boom Beach!You’ve probably already met the Colonel, got acquainted with the locals, and set up a sweet little base – now you want to dive deeper to make the most of your troops and resources eh?

Well, Commander we’ve put together some good intel for you right here, so let’s get to it!

Building Placement and Base Defense

First order of business is customizing your base and building up your defenses. The HQ is the brain and the heart of your operation, your goal on defense is to keep this protected at all costs! Don’t make the mistake of not setting up your base when you start – It’s costly and avoidable!

Some Critical Tips:

  • Place your HQ at a hard to reach position with defenses covering the area around it – front, back and sides.
  • Protect your defensive structures with non-essential buildings by placing them near, but not touching them. Also simultaneously protect your non-essential buildings with your defenses as each building destroyed gives the enemy gunboat energy
  • Leave a small spacing (1 square) between buildings, especially defensive structures. If you don’t, Artillery can hit multiple buildings if the building’s edges or corners are touching.
  • They can kill all your buildings except your HQ and you’d still win.

Got the points above covered? Excellent. Now keep an eye on those trees! The enemy can run through the trees with the Flare ability. This means if you have your HQ backed into the trees, it is extremely vulnerable from the woods!

Here’s a base that is not protecting its HQ with its defenses. Surround your HQ with defenses.

Aside from your HQ, you need to place your weapons strategically. Enemy units will automatically attack the next closest building, so by interspersing non-essential buildings with your weapons, you are giving yourself more time to eat away at the enemy’s health and energy.

Again, most importantly! Building spacing is vital in Boom Beach. Don’t give the enemy any freebies by letting them blow up more than one of your weapons at once with artillery.

You don’t have a lot of buildings in the beginning, but as your base becomes larger and gains more firepower, keeping these ideas in mind can be the difference between beating back invaders or losing half your resources.

Need more in-depth strategies for defenses? See some of our Base Defense Analyses here.

Game Style and Upgrade Order | How will you play?

There are two different schools of thought here in the Boom Forces.

Some guys want to go all out offense, attack-attack-attack. Others look for a more balanced approach, defending their turf and steadily claiming their enemies’ as their own. We’ll talk about both here, and maybe you’ll find your own path to be the best of both worlds.

Offense Strategy

  • Pros:
  • Very strong offense that can take on opponents of a higher level, and for the most part, raid anything in sight.
  • Contributes to Task Force missions through good military might.
  • Can quickly accumulate resources for expensive upgrades through raiding and thus advance through the HQ ranks swiftly.
  • Cons:
  • If you advance too quickly, eventually you will get matched with opponents 10-15 levels higher than you. This means you’ll have no targets or ways of generating resources. See how match making works here.
  • You will have to let opponent’s raid your base and HQ frequently in order to lose victory points and get matched with easier opponents
  • Your resources will be completely unprotected from raids so you cannot stockpile them for a big upgrade.
  • Little to no gems or intel will come from base defenses as your base will be extremely vulnerable
  • As one player has accurately described the cons of offense only, “This is just a consequence of playing offense on the edge of what’s possible. Sometimes you need to take your foot off the pedal for a while.”

Balanced/Defense Strategy

  • Pros:
  • Your defense will be good, potentially earning you lots of gems and intel from successful defenses.
  • You’ll have a well rounded economy to naturally generate resources when you aren’t raiding, and eventually you’ll build up a strong army as well getting the best of both worlds.
  • You’ll have a better understanding of base defenses, and this experience will assist you in raiding other bases
  • In case you can’t obtain all the resources you need for an upgrade in one day, you’ll have base defenses to help protect the resources till the next day
  • You’ll get to play the whole game rather than just the offense half of it
  • Cons:
  • You’ll advance slower due to splitting your upgrades between defense and offense.
Total War | Offense Strategy Upgrade Order

You aren’t here to make friends or build bases, you want to fight. This strategy focuses all of its efforts on building up a strong army at the expense of your base defense and natural economy. For this strategy, your upgrades are focused on your Landing Crafts, Gunboat, Armory, and HQ. You’ll also want to upgrade your storage buildings to house the spoils of war.

The Gunboat and its Artillery weapon is critical in the early game. Upgrading the Gunboat lets you fire more shots, and should be done as early as possible. Also once you can obtain Dark Power Stones, Gunboat Energy Statues will be a game-changing asset.
Landing crafts can be upgraded fairly cheaply and each extra space on the craft could be another Rifleman to boost your attack or sometimes an extra heavy to increase your army’s tankiness. Also try to aim for certain level landing crafts as they get a lot better when you can squeeze an extra heavy onto them (Levels 4, 8, 12).
The Armory will keep your troops in fighting shape and your gunboat ammunition potent. Of special note is upgrading your artillery so that it can dispatch key defenses (like cannons) in two shots rather than 3. This upgrade is worth its weight in gold and can be a single defining factor in beating a stronger opponent’s base!

The Heavy is a staple of most troop combinations, as he is the backbone that soaks up all the enemy fire and protects your Riflemen and Zookas. He should be strongly considered for upgrade to give him more health and a little more damage.

  • Main foes are Sniper Towers and Cannons.
  • Can absorb fire from Flamethrowers, Machine Guns, and Mortars with ease.
  • More info and strategy on Heavies here.

The Zooka is a very strong offensive unit and the other half of the very strongHeavy + Zooka (Hooka) combo. Upgrading her will increase your damage and give her a little more survivability if she should stumble across a mine.

  • Zookas have very powerful attack but are also fragile. Make sure to keep them out of harms way and behind Heavies or Riflemen to maximize their potential.
  • More info and strategy on Zookas here.

Artillery upgrades are good because the damage increase could decrease the number of shots you need to take to destroy a critical defense. The difference between firing 2 shots or 3 shots of artillery to destroy a defense is huge. A guaranteed useful upgrade at any time.Did you know: Landing crafts can only hold one type of troop, and while upgrading, they can not be restocked with troops.

Full Metal Fortress | Defense and Balanced Strategy

When playing a balanced strategy, you’ll still follow the same rules for the offense strategy upgrades (Landing Crafts, Gunboat, Armory, etc), but you’ll also spend time and resources upgrading your defensive structures.

You’ll want make sure your defensive structures are kept reasonably up to date, but strategic placement is the most important part of defense. Keep in mind that while a structure is being upgraded it will not protect your base so you will be more vulnerable during this time.

Here’s a quick breakdown at what they are good at and roughly the order we like prioritizing them in.

The Sniper Tower has great range and damage and is relevant against almost every type of unit.

  • Sniper Towers should be positioned to protect lower range defenses as well as cover areas near the back and sides of your HQ.
  • Sniper Towers should be spread out to cover more area and avoid being targeted at the same time.
  • An upgraded Heavy can take a lot of shots from a sniper tower, so having high damage defenses like Cannons defending them is a good idea.
  • More info and strategy on sniper towers here.

The Mortar can fire long range bombs which damage multiple units in an area.

  • Effective against masses of low HP units such as Zookas and Riflemen
  • Mortars are unable to hit close range targets, so other defensive structures should cover area near the mortar. Conversely, moving all units near a mortar will completely nullify them.
  • More info and strategy on mortars here.
  • While unlocked a little later Cannons are good against tough targets and are the staple of all defenses.
  • Cannons are unlocked at level 6 HQ and are powerful against large HP targets like Heavies, Tanks, and Warriors.
  • Level 3 is a big turning point for your cannons at HQ levels 9 and under. At level 3, cannons have just enough HP (2370) to survive 2 artillery shots and will require a third to be destroyed. Upgrading your cannons to level 3 is a great way to keep opponents from having enough firepower to destroy them at HQ levels 1-9!
  • More info and strategy on cannons here.


On the other end of a balanced strategy is your economy. Storage buildings are extremely important in both strategies, because you will be wasting valuable resources if you hit your storage capacity and keep on attacking.

Otherwise the Vault deserves an honorable mention as it will greatly reduce the amount of resources you lose when you get raided. Get these up ASAP! Of course some attention should be paid attention to your Resource Production buildings (Sawmill, Quarry, Iron Mine) which will generate you hundreds of thousands of resources over time.

Special Mention: Your HQ

Unlike in Clash of Clans, you should level up your HQ at every opportunity!

Leveling up your HQ at every opportunity has no downside. Your matchmaking level is not determined based on your HQ level. This means that you can be having more buildings and better units for no significant penalty. Take advantage of this to get a leg up on your opponents!

See what you get at each HQ level!

Ready to Raid

So you’ve taken out some NPCs, made and upgraded a few buildings. Where are all of the real people you were promised you’d be able to crush under your well groomed army??

  • Upgrade your Radar to level 2 for you to start finding players on your map.This also means you’ve entered the attacking pool of everyone else.
  • As you upgrade your radar, you will find more players and islands to reclaim. Resource bases can be seen on your map (explore there first!)
  • Once a player shows up on your map, the game takes a “screenshot” of his resources. This doesn’t mean that they can’t continue upgrading or rearranging their base.
  • Your matchmaking score is directly based on the number of trophies you have. This means that you might sometimes find enemies that are not quite your level.

Thus before you upgrading your radar, you will want to make sure your defenses are upgraded and that you are ready for invasion. Here’s an excerpt from Supercell about how matchmaking works:

The new matchmaking will be based on the number of Victory Points a player has. We will try to match players with a similar Victory Point score. This new matchmaking system should address many of the problems in the old system. Most importantly, the new system is more transparent and offers a better self-balancing mechanic: If you get beaten a lot, you should eventually meet easier opponents. We know that the new system will create some new challenges, but we think these new problems are more manageable.

Resource Bases

Resource Bases are a valuable way to get extra resources at your disposal. By exploring the map and uncovering areas with outposts showing in the fog of war, we can gain access to these valuable resources. Here on the right side of the map, we can see an outpost in the clouds.

Once explored, the resource base is ripe for the collecting. Unlike NPC bases, resource bases are controlled by players. A few things to note about resource bases:

  • You will be fighting back and forth with other players for control of your resource bases.
  • Resource bases are not limited to being contested by only two players.
  • Every time the base changes hands the weapons get upgraded. Sometimes this leads to weapons getting added.
  • If you ever get totally stuck against an opponent, like normal player bases, if you wait long enough (at least 3 days) you will get the option to find another opponent. However, we do not recommend searching for another opponent for resource bases. Instead we recommend leaving it be until you are strong enough to beat it. May seem opaque as to why, but you’ll thank us later.
  • Don’t forget! Once you take control of a base, it is yours to control and do with what you wish. This means you can move any of the buildings around to upgrade the defensive arrangement of the base. This is easy to overlook but crucial to keeping a tight grip on your base
  • Trees can also be harvested for wood which might also help with the re-position of your buildings.
What do I do with my Diamonds?

Diamonds/Gems have two uses: speeding up building/upgrading, paying for resources you don’t currently own when building/upgrading. You should save diamonds for a few scenarios.

  • You have too many resources and are afraid of having them stolen so you use them to quickly finish a building or upgrade.
  • You save them to pay for resources that are otherwise difficult to obtain – this is especially true when you unlock HQ 6 and first acquire stone. You will have no structure to generate stone until HQ 7 so using gems to upgrade from HQ 6 to HQ 7 is a great way of securing further stone. Similar problems will arise when upgrading from level HQ 9 to HQ 10 to obtain iron.
  • Upgrading HQ from level 6 to 7 because of stone shortage
  • Upgrading HQ from level 9 to 10 because of iron shortage

I would not recommend using diamonds to speed up troop training or speed up building or upgrade completion as they are very costly. Unless you have 1000’s of gems to spare, you’ll want to save them for later.

Castle Clash Strategy Guide

Castle Clash is one of the top strategy battle games on the iOS and Android platforms. Your goal is to assemble a cast of heroes and army troops, take on the world in isolated battles, quest through a seemingly endless array of difficult dungeons, and battle your team of heroes against opposing teams in the arena. Along the way you can earn tons of treasures, from the common (mana and gold) to the uncommon (HB, or honor badges) to the downright rare (Hero Shards and Diamonds). It’s a hugely in-depth game, so it’s hard to pick out just ten top tips, but nevertheless, we’ve managed to do it.

10) Place your buildings as close together as possible.
Do this so that you can completely surround your buildings with walls without having to build as many walls as you normally would. This also enables you to build walls further away from the buildings, so that it’s tougher for ranged troops to shoot over your walls.

9) Build the Arena as soon as possible so that you can start earning HB, and increase your rank to increase your hourly take of HB.
Build the arena and you will automatically begin earning a certain amount of honor badges every hour. You start off earning 50 at a time, but this increases as your arena battling rank does. The top player can earn thousands per hour. Use those HB to hire more heroes in the Heroes’ Altar.

8) Increase your Town Hall’s level as quickly as possible to maximize the size of your army.
The more you level up the Town Hall, the more army camps and hero camps that you can build, which will drastically increase the size and power of your army. Send in the largest armies that you possibly can every time that you battle, because you’ll save more troops this way, and winning the numbers game is most of the battle.

7) Use your four main types of troops strategically so that you can win easily.
You have four main troop types: The short-range quantity attacker that takes up little to no housing space, the long-range quantity attacker that takes up slightly more housing space, the magic user who does heavy damage but has low health, and the tank who has a massive amount of health and targets defensive buildings. Send in the tanks first to distract the watchtowers. Then send in your short- or long-range quantity attackers. Finally, send in your magic users to provide long-distance cover.

6)Target the Town Hall for a guaranteed win in battle.
If you destroy the Town Hall, you will win no matter how much damage you do. Otherwise, you need at least 50% damage. If you need a quick win and want to conserve troops, then end the battle right after destroying the Town Hall and you can move on to the next battle/s.

5) Organize your heroes effectively so that they can play a sound defense in the arena.
You should have at least five heroes, because five is the maximum that you can deploy as attackers or defenders in the arena. Spread them out evenly, and if you have multiple rare heroes, put your rarest ones in. After a hero hits level 20, upgrade it in the heroes’ altar to keep the level ups coming. Stronger heroes means that you can more easily fight off other players, thus increasing your rank even when you are not playing the game actively.

4) When raiding other players’ bases, skip the ones that don’t look like immediate wins.
Signs for an easy raid include: no walls, less army camps than you, and less hero camps than you. Tread lightly or take magic into the ones that look to be around the same strength level as you, or if a player’s base looks disproportionately strong, pay the small bit of gold and skip to the next base.

3) Keep the Gold and Mana flowing from your own base.
No matter how strong of an attacker you are, or how strong of a defender, maximize your gold mines, your mana mills, and your vaults, and upgrade them as high as you can. It’s always best to wake up, turn on the app, then have a full load to collect. This can start you off on the right foot especially when your whole army got killed overnight by opposing players.

2) Get three stars on the dungeons (especially the skull dungeons) to earn more hero shards.
Hero shards are exceedingly rare, even moreso than diamonds are, but you can earn them via the skull dungeons, which are extra-tough. Send the hugest army and the biggest batch of heroes that you can into the skull dungeons, and do 100 percent damage to earn the three stars and the biggest rewards.

1) Load up on the free gems/treasure using the tasks in the “Earn Gems” screen.
This is under the tab that looks like a Christmas present. There will be a ton of quests that can earn you free gems, as well as a link to all of the active events, and even in-app purchase bonuses that are going on at the time.

Clash of Clans Strategy Guide

Clash of Clans Guide

Welcome to the most detailed and effective Clash of Clans strategy guide on the internet. Throughout this website, you will find dozens of articles discussing the best farming strategies, base set ups, upgrades to get, offensive tactics, army compositions, and more.

Below, you will find my top 8 must-know Clash of Clans tips. Before you do anything else, read the rest of this guide to learn these tips!

The Top 8 Must-Know Clash of Clans Tips

Tip #1. Save Your Gems

When you start playing Clash off Clans, you begin with 500 gems. By the end of the tutorial, you end up losing nearly 50 gems by completing structures instantly as instructed by the tutorial. If you instead save your gems, you will be able to add extra builders at a quicker rate.

Here are the costs for each builder:

  • Builder 2: 250 gems (you add this during the tutorial)
  • Builder 3: 500 gems
  • Builder 4: 1000 gems
  • Builder 5: 2000 gems

While builders 4 and 5 are a long ways off, builder 3 is achievable relatively quickly if you save your gems. Extra builders allow you to construct more buildings at once and as a result are very helpful. With the new Clan War achievements and a trophy push, you can unlock the 4th builder within a few months of playing even without purchasing anything. The 5th builder will require a major Trophy push (to Champion’s League) or more time to unlock some of the other achievements.

Tip #2. Use Cheap Units

One of the biggest mistakes new players make is not considering the cost of the units they use to battle. While Giants are great, they also cost a lot more to use than Barbarians. At higher levels, Dragons are great, but they cost a lot more to use than Giants. There is also the time factor to consider. While Wizards are stronger than Archers, they not only cost more to make, but each Wizard requires 8 minutes. Meanwhile, you could create 4 Archers in less than two minutes (Wizards are a 4-supply unit).

As a result, when your primary goal is to save up resources, you need to make an effort to use cheap units that are quick to produce. The best units to make depends on your Town Hall level; see my Clash of Clans Town Hall Farming Guide by Level for more details.

Tip #3. Only Use Spells When Necessary

Just like units, spells are very expensive and take awhile to produce. While they can be very effective, you need to make sure that the battle you are fighting warrants the use of such a spell. You should know that the Rage Spell starts at 23,000 elixir and the Healing spell starts at 15,000 elixir; each time you use these spells, you need to be sure that using the spell will allow you to earn at least an additional 15k or 23k resources (spell depending).

Tip #4. Slowly Upgrade Your Town Hall

The Town Hall “loot penalty” is one of the most important things to know about in Clash of Clans, yet it is not a publicly advertised feature in the game. It is not even mentioned during the tutorial or anywhere in the game, yet it is extremely important to how the game plays out.

This penalty reduces the amount of loot you can get from enemies if your Town Hall is a higher level than your opponent’s Town Hall. If your Town Hall is one level higher than your enemy’s, you will only be able to steal 90% of the normal amount available for loot. If your Town Hall is two levels higher, you will only be able to steal 50% of the loot. For three levels, only 25%, and for 4 levels or more, only 5% of the total available loot. The penalty is reflected in “Loot Available” – you do not have to do any calculations on your own.

As a result, we recommend getting up to Town Hall level 4 and then sitting in this range while you max out your defensive structures, your army camps, and your research. You can even max out your walls for extra credit before moving on to Town Hall 5. Repeat this process for every level.

Tip #5. Start Matchmaking Early

When you first start playing Clash of Clans, you get a three-day shield. However, thanks to the previously-mentioned Loot Penalty, very few players will want to attack you even if you drop your shield. As a result, you can start matchmaking right away when you need resources with no fear of reprisal. You can skip around and look for a base with exposed resource collectors and use a handful of Barbarians, Goblins, or Archers to attack them.

Even if you do get attacked, low-level Town Hall players have very little to lose. You will only lose a tiny bit of resources that can be more than made up for with a single attack.

Tip #6. Use the “Next” Feature Frequently

When farming either resources or trophies, you should always be skipping around with the “next” button in order to find the perfect base to attack. It only costs a tiny bit of gold to jump to the next base, so make sure you have a good base before you spend all your units attacking one. Also, be careful never to spend every last bit of gold you have on an upgrade – you need to save some gold in order to be able to use the “next” ability to continue farming!

Tip #7. Put the Clan Castle in the Center of Your Base

The Clan Castle is perhaps the best defensive structures in Clash of Clans, but only if you place it in the center of your base. The way the structure works is that when enemy units enter the Clan Castle’s range (it has a very long range), the units will pour out of the Clan Castle and attack the enemy’s attacking units. Note that your Clan Castle troops are capable of hopping over your own walls.

If you place the Clan Castle outside of your base, the enemy can simply lure away the units inside the Clan Castle and easily kill them out of range of your towers. If you keep the Clan Castle inside your base, the enemy will have to take damage from both your Clan Castle units as well as your defensive structures in order to take out your base.

Generally, it is best to ask for Archers to keep in your Town Hall for defensive purposes. This works very well because Archers will often shoot at melee units from behind your walls, allowing them to shoot down Giants and Barbarians without taking damage. Very high level players may choose different units, such as Dragons or Golems, but this requires a clan where members will donate these troops.

Note that this tip really only applies to players at Town Hall 7 or above. At earlier Town Hall levels, you do not have enough buildings to actually prevent the enemy from luring out units in your Clan Castle. Town Hall 7 units can still be lured, but it is tougher. At Town Hall 8 and up the enemy will have to destroy some buildings or a decent number of units to force troops out of your Clan Castle.

Tip #8. Focus on Dark Elixir

Once you reach Town Hall 7 and beyond, your limiting resource will always be Dark Elixir. Through normal play, you typically will max out all gold and elixir-based upgrades long before you acquire enough Dark Elixir to max out your heroes and Dark Barracks troop upgrades. As a result, you need to place a priority on Dark Elixir above all other resources, saving your spells and hero units for when you stand to gain a large chunk of Dark Elixir.
