Never Ending Games

I've decided to quit playing Clash Royale & Galaxy of Heroes. The grind in Clash Royale was just too much & the constant needs for character shards or shortage of gold/materials in Galaxy of Heroes was just beginning to bore.

I also did not see an end point for either game which is the main reason I stopped I'm not a fan of never ending games.

Give me a good campaign I can enjoy & by all means add a multi-player section that I can dabble in but once I am done with the campaign I am usually finished with the game.

I am sure time plays a huge part is this because the older I get the gaming time I have seems to decrease. I've only managed 2 hours this week playing Helldivers with the Claptrap Boys which by the way is a fun co-op game.

Need to find some time to finish off Batman, I'm at a difficult driving section near the end which I have tried on a few occasions & just cannot complete.

I'll leave you Limahl


Clash Royale – That winning feeling

Winning a hard fought match is very enjoyable & it is even more satisfying if you manage to win in the last second of the game.

With 3 seconds to go till overtime I launched some arrows which destroyed the enemy tower with no time left on the clock.

I am firmly in arena 4 now with around 1300+ trophies (it fluctuates depending on my wins/losses).

Need some more gold to upgrade the Prince & then aim for 1400 trophies to make it into arena 5.

Clash Royale – Skeleton Army

Yes, finally got it !!

Skeleton Army is great for taking care of tank type enemies like the giant, prince or skeleton giant.

Although they can easily be defeated by the arrows, I will still keep them in my deck.

Clash Royale – Clans

You can join a clan once you have reached level 3. Being part of a clan gives you access to donate & request cards. If you donate you are rewarded with experience & gold.

You can also chat with clan members & have friendly battles.

If you are looking for a clan to join, search for ugvm

I'm level 6 at the moment & hovering around 925 trophies. Seem to be getting quite a few drawers lately.

Clash Royale – Deck Building

The game let's you have three decks, my first has all the lowest characters 1's, 2's & some 3's this gives me an average elixir rate of 2.6 good for an assault on enemy towers but you have to be careful when facing off against some of the tougher characters.

I tend to play with deck 2 mostly because it gives me a good range with a couple of strong characters like the Giant/Baby Dragon & basic characters like archers, knights & bombers. I do like the bomb tower which can defend a large area.

Deck 3 is the strongest with all the big heavy hitters but the average elixir cost of 4.2 takes a while to recharge.

I would say anything between 3 to 3.5 is about right to have a strong team. I've level 5 at the moment & nearly have 800 trophies to unlock Arena 3.

Outside of iOS I'm still plodding along on Game of Thrones & completed Episode 3 yesterday evening. I've not yet deleted my MGS5 save so may yet go back to play Part 2.

New Game – Clash Royale

Once again thanks to Satsuma, I've been playing the new game from the Clash of Clans developers Clash Royale. It uses a similar style to Clash of Clans but this time you use a battle deck & elixir to attack your opponent's tower.

It has a few timers on chests unlock & you need quite a bit of gold to level up characters past level 3 but I'm enjoying it for the 5 to 10 mins a day I play it.
