Clash of Clans: Game Cheats, Tips and Tricks

It's been awhile since I last played a game in my phone. I usually just play short games that would be over within 5 minutes or less. It's good to have those while waiting for something or when not doing anything just to fill the times when we are bored the most (like waiting in the bank). Early this year, I started to play a game my brother was playing. I was just asking around at first then I decided to try it.

I've seen some news articles about Clash of Clans (by Supercell) recently. It's a huge phenomenon. It's so big that if you can be part of the top players, you'd be an instant celebrity. One of the first few top players was George Yao. You can read his story in New York Times titled Master of his Virtual Domain. If you think that this game is just a game, think again. Clash of Clans is raking in millions of dollars a day for Supercell from in-app purchases. Players can buy 'Gems' to help them in developing their base, hasten the building time and they can even convert the purchased gems to in-game gold, elixir and dark elixirs which are all used to either build buildings or troops.

So like others, I've been hooked for a couple of months already although the momentum is a bit dying as I don't play as often anymore. Let me share with you some tips, tricks and cheats I found in playing the game. I'm no expert but I love over-analyzing things so might as well share some ideas to co-Clash of Clans players out there.

Clash of Clans Tips and Tricks: 
1) Free Shield
To get shield, you'd have to use gems to purchase them. To get gems, you have to pay for it using real money. If you don't want to spend real money, you'd have to consider placing your Town hall outside your perimeter wall and away from your defenses (as seen in the photo).

This way, people who attack you just wanting to gain a few trophies can easily attack you and getting your town hall destroyed gives you a 12-hour shield. Remember that you still have to have good defenses so they won't rob you completely. Regardless if you've been completely destroyed or not, it's okay. Just remember to spend almost all your money so that you won't be easily targeted. You get a 12-16 hour shield after each successful attack done to you.


Here's an explanation on why it's okay to leave your town hall vulnerable outside.
My defense log 
The defense log above shows people who have attacked me while I was offline. Since my town hall is outside, they mostly take around a thousand gold and elixirs from destroying my town hall and a few higher amounts but still less than 10 to 20k.

My attack log
But every time I attack, I get more than what they take from me. I don't even mind losing a few trophies as long as the amount of loot is good. Trophies are easy to gain back anyway. If you notice, my attacks get me 80 to 200k+ resources. This is why I do not mind placing my town hall outside. (But remember to protect it during the war phase in clan wars)

2) Earn more gold and elixir using barbarians and archers
I got this tip from a friend. One of the fastest troops to build is the barbarian. Another is the archer. Combine both in numbers and you can rack in 200-400k easily. How? Whenever you attack other bases by finding a match, look for those signs that a base is unattended. If you can notice below, the gold mine on the left most is overflowing compared to the 2 others. Overflowing gold mines contain a lot of gold! Better if these resources are outside their perimeters and easy to reach using archers or barbarians. Going back to what I said, barbarians and archers are fast to build. Do this multiple times and you can average in around 1 million resources in an hour.

3) Maximize and Always leave one builder behind
My style is to maximize the base before upgrading my town hall. This way, I won't be overwhelmed with all the structures I need to build. For example, from town hall level 7, I made sure that nothing else can be upgraded or leveled up. With 35 minutes left, I upgraded all my structures, research and walls (even traps) to the maximum level possible on town hall 7 and I even got spare money to use to build for those new structures I can build when on town hall 8 already. Leaving one builder behind ensures that you can slowly upgrade your wall so that your resources are almost always used up. This way, others will hesitate to attack you.

My town hall is inside because clan wars is about to start
4) Clan Wars: Build, upgrade etc before clan wars start
I discovered something. When upgrading or building a structure, do it before the preparation day phase in clan wars end. Why? Whatever you build, currently building or currently upgrading will be FULLY USABLE immediately in clan wars even though in your actual game, you can still see it being fixed up. Also remember to place your town hall inside, fully protected before the preparation day ends. Once the war has started, you can place it back outside. Clash of Clans somewhat "screenshots" whatever your base arrangement is before preparation day ends and makes that as your base in the clan wars.



Clash of Clans Cheat: 
Wanting to get over the game quickly, I searched for the best way to "game" the game. There's only one thing I found which could be useless to some but might be useful for others. Since the device I use to play Clash of Clans is jailbroken, I was able to download iModGames. If you've been playing Playstation before, it's similar to GameShark. It's a cheat vault for various games and Clash of Clans is part of it.

To download iModGames,
1) Open Cydia (Available for Jailbroken devices only)
2) Go to Manage -> Sources
3) Tap Edit -> Add
4) Enter http://cydia.imodgame.net
5) Tap Add Source

Then, search for the app "iModGame" inside Cydia, download and install.

The top portion would contain games that you have installed in your iPad and there are tons of other games below. Take note that this app has a point system, meaning, to activate the cheat for a certain game, you need points. Points can be bought (real money) for like $10 for 1000 points and for Clash of Clans, it only required 100-200 points, I think.

Cheat: Search for Gold, Elixir and Dark Elixir automatically
Basically, the option "search Gold, Elixir and Dark Elixir loot" are simply assistants as you search for an enemy you want to attack. You still pay the amount required when you click "find a match" via the attack option. What this does is, it won't stop searching until your conditions are met. For example, you set that you want at least 100,000 gold loot. As long as the app doesn't find you a match with at least 100,000 gold loot, all you'll see are just the clouds (the same clouds you see when looking for a match). You can either let the app sound off or vibrate when match is found to alert you. This will save you time.

Cheat: Shield-like feature
The other important thing is the "keep active". This will sort of act like a shield but the downside is, you have to keep your game and iPad active. In short, you'll need to deactivate standby mode or sleep mode. This function is important if you are saving up for an upgrade and you just need a few more. This will prevent other players from attacking you and prevent the app from asking you, "are you there?". There's a limitation though. If you play or activate the app for 6 straight hours, you'll get a notice like this:
It's okay. Don't panic. You can play again for 5 to 10 minutes.
Cheat: Attack ANYONE you like
Another important feature is the "simulate attack". I find that feature very important in Clan Wars. Why? Activating this will make you simulate an attack on the village you are visiting. You can try it out first before actually attacking your target. But take note that whatever you do after that attack won't be recorded. Your app will just crash and you have to start the game again. It's also great if you do not want to lose troops and you can practice attacking just anyone over and over again without the need to build new troops after every attack. If you currently have shield, this won't be affected as well. You can have shield and use simulate attack without affecting your shield.

This is the nearest thing as far as a cheat code for Clash of Clans I can see. Let me know if you know one by sharing it in the comments section.

That's it so far. Hope you get a good idea or two from this article. Feel free to share to help other players.
