I like playing games, but I am a terrible gamer (so please be kind).
For myself, strategy involves, mashing the keyboard, and hitting whatever button lights up first, and hope for the best.
There are still elements to this game which I do not understand,
to me it seems to magically happen.
I would like to be a better player; and so since this is the player help player part of the forum,
maybe someone can explain a few things to me.
TROPHIES: one thing I know is that when you go to war, it tells you how many trophies you will win for a 3 crown victory,
and I have felt the sting of loosing to an opponent the game feels you should not have, a win can get you 5 trophies, a loss can cost you - 20 trophies,
but when I log and go to sleep I notice IF I had 1,550 trophies, in the morning I have 1, 015 I guess your castle defenses matters,
if I loose when attacking, does the player I attack get those trophies or do they just go poof! I also notice that players who are several player levels than I am
often have more trophies (not like 5 or 6) I am talking hundreds. Trophies are an aspect of the game which are still a mystery to me.
EVENTS: ALLIANCE WARS etc: currently this is day one of an Alliance War, most of my Alliance have had their 6 battles, and here comes that trophy thing,
my Alliance mates are lower level than I am, also have lower trophy counts, and yet somehow have over 1K more skulls than I do.
When I choose an opponent to fight, I try to find someone, who is in my level bracket, or just under, a player who has equal or lesser amounts of trophies
than I do, and who is most likely to give me a 3 crown victory. Should a player bite off way more than they can chew, attack a higher level player, with more trophies
and hope for the best? I was thinking attacking an opponent that you think you can beat, is wiser than seeing huge skull counts and going for wishful thinking.
However my Alliance mates all seem to do way better than I do. I do not want to be top gun and be number one on the leader board, but I also do not want to
be at the very bottom of it either.
I am hoping that someone out there has some constructive advice, or information about playing, to maximize my playing potential.
This is still an Awesome game, I just want to not be one of the “Knights Who Say n00b”
