    Haven't seen any thread about this game oddly and I'm sure many iOS users play it. Anyway shameless plug, just left my clan to create one and I'm looking for some members :p
    Clan name is Sulfuric Acid, requirements are in the description ;)

    XBL: Shadow Thi3f

    I play! I've been meaning to start a thread here for a couple of weeks to see if I could sort out an EG clan, but I'll just hop in with you. Edit: or not, as I can't find your clan.

    Hopefully there will be some more players here. It's a really simple game but I find it quite addictive, and it doesn't require any money spent.

    Yeah, I've started up on this recently too.

    Sort it out, Glen, go on.

    My understanding is that this was less of a game and more of a cash sponge?

    Adverts keep popping up for this during the wonderful Score. It looks terrible. I genuinely don't understand why anyone plays these sorts of games.

    I think I tried it a few months ago and the silly long build times seem to be there purely to get you to fork over some cash to insta build.

    Late to the party and I know this is the apple forum but anyone play on android? Couldn't find a specific thread for it.

    As far as I know Android and iOS are in the same universe so you can still play with iOS players.

    It's worth trying Samurai Siege, very similar game but has some fun features. I don't really play CoC anymore.

    Ah very cool. Wish more games did this.

    Is Eurobobbins the clan or a user?

    Will check out Samurai Siege.

    So this game as overtaken my life. Amazing game. I am currently very worried for my sanity and health though. It really takes over your life.

    I looked at the pictures of this, and it made me nopenopenopenope. It just looked like a money soak, the kind of game you hear parents tell horror stories of as they left their credit card details on their iPad and gave it to their kids.

    Would much rather play one of the actual paid-for titles on my phone, like Talisman, The World Ends With You, Frozen Synapse, etc.

    There's no money sink until a certain point, where the grind gets too long and dull. The idea is to PvP more but that requires you to put far more time into it, and you stand to lose more than you gain if you don't (when you're raided yourself).

    So there's a point people tend to stop. You can play a few months before you hit that point though.

    So... it's Pay-to-Win then? You pay to increase your stats or whatevz to better points to then raid/defend against other big boys in the playground and to minimise your losses?

    Not really, as paying doesn't give you any advantage other than less time spent, and you'll always be grouped at people around your level, so the higher you go the tougher it is.

    It's a pretty well balanced game and it isn't really exploitable. They just lean on you to give them money after a certain amount of play time. It's a common model.
