Clash of Clans Unlimited Gems in 5 MINUTES! iOS & Android
"Clash of Clans" is a powerhouse of an app, and its players are as hardcore as they come.
Since its release in 2012, "Clash of Clans" has dominated Apple's App Store, quickly climbing the ranks and claiming the title of No.1 highest-grossing app overall.
In 2013, its development studio, Supercell, raked in $892 million in revenue, and the app can bring in up to $5.15 million per day.
The game revolves around the idea of fortifying a base, defending it from invading players and their clans, and raiding the bases of others in order to gain resources and start the whole process over again. The gameplay is addicting, and because logging off means leaving your base wide open for a raid, the game's top players stay glued to their screens.
Few players exemplify the addictive nature of game as well as "Tyrael," a 21-year studying fire science technology in New Jersey. He's a part-time firefighter, and he's getting an associates degree in software engineering. Tyrael, who asked to stay anonymous for our story, says the app has been open for 8,000-9,000 hours.
He's played the game ~25% of that time, but he's tending to the app the whole time in order to train his troops. Troop training is a process which can take a while but is essential to building up resources to help win a raid.
"I ended up having to stay online 16 hours a day so I didn’t get attacked," Tyrael tells Business Insider. "That became something I did on a daily routine."
Tyrael is a top "Clash of Clans" player. He was one of the first players to fully upgrade his base to completion, a rare feat that only a handful have managed.Clash of Clans Overview
Clash of Clans by Supercell is an isometric 2D village builder and strategy hybrid with a massive community and consistent popularity. Players accumulate gold, elixir, and dark elixir to construct a kingdom with the ultimate goal of training increasingly powerful troops to attack and raid in the single player campaign or PvP. Defending one's kingdom is equally important and players must plan accordingly with walls, cannons, bombs and more. Upgrade your mines to increase your flow of resources and unlock 18 types of warriors and heroes through the 4 tier troop system. Finally join a Clan, combine forces, and take your battle to the global leader-board and make a name for yourself in PvP.
