Clash of Clans is a free-to-play mobile strategy video game developed and published by Finnish 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 it is an old game, it has a lot of interesting facts which players might not know. In this article, we are going to share 10 interesting facts about Clash of Clans.
Clash of Clans is set in a fantasy-themed persistent world where the player is a chief of a village. The game tasks players to build their villages using the resources gained from attacking other players’ villages; earning rewards, buying them with medals, or producing them at their villages. To attack, players train different kinds of troops using resources. The main resources are gold, elixir, and dark elixir. Players can conjoin to create clans, groups of up to fifty people, who can then participate in Clan Wars together, donate and receive troops, and chat with each other.
Top 10 best Clash of Clans facts
1. Numberings on Buildings
Two of the most useful and important buildings in Clash Of Clans, the Star Laboratory, and the Clock Tower has their respective level number written in Roman numerals on the outer wall of the buildings. Players can easily check the level of the building by seeing the number on the wall. It is one of the most interesting unknown facts of the game.
2. Max Walls with Gems
After research done by some Clash of Clans players, it was revealed that maxing out the wall from level 1 to level 14 takes only 673,895 gems in total. So if any player wants to max out a wall quickly, they will just be needed this not so little number of gems and it will be done. It is a great time-saver.
3. Secret of Elixir
Elixir is arguably the most important item in the game. Almost everything in the game needs elixir to sustain. The word elixir came from the word ‘Al Iksir. The actual meaning of the latter word is ‘magical substance’. The meaning justifies its name since elixir does almost magical stuff in the game, be it training troops, brewing spells, or upgrading buildings.
4. Development of Clash of Clans
In an interview, Supercell revealed that the game was developed in a period of almost six months. It was stated that only two-game developers worked primarily to complete the development of the game, which is a great feat for the company. Usually developing a game takes lots of time for developers, but this theory was not applicable for COC according to the statement from supercell.
5. Naming of the Lava Launcher
Before the update, the lava launcher was set to be called by the name Poison Mortar since the damaging effect of the lava launcher was similar to the damage pattern of the poison spell. Later, in a last-minute change, the lava launcher name was fixed instead of the poison mortar name because there was another mortar in the game.
6. Max amount of trophy from a match
The maximum number of trophies a player gains or lose from a match is 59. A player will not be able to win or lose more trophies than 59. Many players and game researchers tried to win or lose trophies more than 59 but the result remained the same.
7. The Air Sweeper
Air sweepers are the only buildings in the game that max out at Town Hall level 11. Every other building in the game takes more town hall levels to upgrade and max out. Air sweeper is one of a kind. Air sweepers can be used to keep away flying troops like Dragons, Bats, Balloons, etc.
8. Time to max out Town Hall 13
After research by some COC players, it was revealed that maxing out a Town Hall 13 village takes approximately 3 years 5 days 29 minutes, and 30 seconds in total. It should be noted that this experiment was done using all five builders and without using any gems or magic items. It is one of the most interesting facts about COC.
9. Master builder’s favourite building
In the builder base of Clash of Clans, the favorite building of the master builder is the Star laboratory. In the introductory starting screen of the builder base, players could see that the master-builder is stating that the star laboratory is his favorite building. The Star Laboratory is a building that allows the player to upgrade their troops, much like the Laboratory in the Home Village. The Star Laboratory is unlocked at Builder Hall level 2.
10. Ruins of the Flying Machine
At the dock of the builder base, players can see the remains of the flying machine card of Clash Royale. It is a direct hint to the flying machine card which was operated by the master-builder himself in the Clash Royale game. It is an easter egg fact about COC.
