Clash of Clans (CoC) is a free-to-play mobile strategy video game developed and published by Finnish mobile game developer Supercell. The game was released for iOS platforms on August 2, 2012, and on Google Play for Android on October 7, 2013. Since then, the game has been one of the most popular games on mobile, with over 500 million downloads globally. As of 2021, Clash of Clans remains in the top 50 grossing apps in both the Play Store and App Store, more than eight years following its release in 2012.
The game is set in a village scene, where each player is a chief of their respective village. The building block of this village, or in simple words, the heart of the village is the Town Hall. As the level of Town Hall gets upgraded, players can add more buildings and resources to widen their base and unlock different troops and upgrade them. Players can collect the resources gained from attacking other players through the game’s fighting features, and producing them themselves. The main resources are Gold, Elixir, and Dark Elixir. Another resource is the Gems, which are used to buy the bigger bounty or even to speed up things like building progress or an upgrade.
Players can conjoin to create clans, which are groups within the game that can go up to a maximum of fifty people, with whom they can participate in Clan Wars together, donate and receive troops, and chat with each other. Competitiveness can be measured with players fighting for the top spot in the Legend league, where the one with the highest trophy count is considered the leader of that season.
After the introduction of Builder Base, players can switch between Home village and Builder Base at any point in the game. Following a similar pattern to that of the Home Village, Builder Base offers an instant matchmaking option along with a real-time battle experience against your opponent. While you are attacking your opponent’s base, the opponent will be doing the same to your base too. In a battle that has a maximum time of up to 3 minutes once started after a 30 second initial time, the one with the most percentile damage or with most stars is the winner of that battle. In a case where both have the same damage, the match is a draw.
Players will get an extra builder in the Builder Base, and can be used in the Home Village as well. Players can farm Gems in the builder base, or even speed up production without using spells or special items with the help of the Clock Tower.
