Experimentation Day 6: Another Defense Attempt


So upon checking my remaining troops, I have one village that still has a lot of troops. It’s in one of my small villages. Knowing that some attackers may take this village of mine lightly since it’s quite small, I’m leaving 2,000 troops to defend it.

Like what I said in my previous posts, many of my attackers don’t have more than a thousand troops in making their raids. So having this much troops to defend my village will have high possibility for success. Now, I just have to wait.

Yesterday’s experiment still has no results but I will report them all tomorrow. The current problem I have right now is that I don’t have resources to create more troops for my villages. Since raids come every 30 mins., there’s never enough resources left for me to build troops. I might have to make a solution for this because even though I have lots of troops left, if I keep up with my attacking and defending experiments, they’ll eventually run out.

Experimentation Day 5: More Attacks!


So the previous experiment in which Ieft 1,000 troops to defend my village somehow ended up quite well. I was right about when I said that attacks coming to my villages only had a few number of troops. I guess it surprised the attacker who sent less than a hundred troops when he found out that there are a thousand troops in my villages. Most of his troops were lost and I was able to defend my village well. So that’s a good start. Experiment 4 went smoothly and for the first time, an experiment led to a good result.

For today’s experiment, I’m continuing to send attacks to the most frequent raider. Although I’m a weaker player than he is, I’m hoping that he’ll realize to not take me lightly. I’m sending him this:



I know it’s not a lot of troops but I’m hoping it can match up to his. We’ll see about it in the next 33 and so hours.

Experimentation Day 4: Troops for Defense


challenge-accepted-memeSo I’ve noticed that many of my raiders think that I don’t have that much troops. Why I think so? It’s because the attacks on my villages usually have very little troops only. Some even don’t reach a thousand troops. I think they might be underestimating me a little that is why I’ll try to defend them.

To do so, I’ll try leaving troops in my village to fight off attackers. I’m leaving 1,000 troops to stand by. There will be an incoming raid soon and results won’t be long. I’ll report tomorrow the results, casualties and including the type of troops mine had to attack.

Let’s see how this will work out…

Experimentation Day 3; Previous Experiment Results



This is it. What’s 700 compared to more than 3,000 troops plus a hero? And aside from this, the enemy has now sent even more attacks to my other villages as well. His attacks/raids has troops ranging from 50 to the maximum of 6,000!

I really don’t have that much troops and I don’t have that much village. Now that my enemy knows how much troops I only have, I suppose that any further attacks I make will not be considered threatening. So for today’s experiment, I’ve decided to try and give him an attack he won’t expect.

Since now he’s probably thinking that I’m a weakling and I can’t overcome his attacks, I’ll send him a big one. I’m sending a raid with 10,000 troops. Yes, it’s a big big risk but I can take this chance to see how it will result to. Yes, I know that him being able to send an attack with 6,000 troops could mean he has more than that and he has a chance to defeat my troops but it’s worth the risk to try. I won’t learn anything sitting around waiting that these enemies will just someday stop attacking me.


Experimentation Day 2: Another Attack to the Raider


travSo yesterday’s experiment has no results yet since it needed 33 hours plus to complete. But today, I have made another attack on one of the other villages of the same player I sent an attack to. The plan is to continuously attack him and see how he reacts.

This attack will take 30 hours to complete and I sent 500 troops to raid another village he has. He’s a big player and he has an alliance. So pretty much, I’m not expecting anything spectacular or wonderful as a result of this. Because compared to him, I’m the ant and he’s the boy with the magnifying glass. He can wipe me out as he is a big player. In addition to that, the alliance he belongs to is ranked 3. I guess that’s pretty big too so I really don’t stand a chance.

We’ll see how all these will come up tomorrow. I’m getting really curious. But if ever I get pulverized, I’m pretty sure I’ll just laugh about it.

Experimentation Day 1: Attack on a Raider


travSo, I am planning on doing different experiments everyday for the next few days. Meaning, I’ll be doing things that may or may not result in something good but I’m doing it anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I have tried to do things in a careful and somehow strategic manner but being too careful has done me no good. I can’t just dodge attacks and hide from my enemies. Starting today, I’m taking risks.

For today, I’m sending an attack to a raider. He raided me with 400 troops so I’m sending an attack, a raid, to him with 700 troops. So that’s almost double the number of the troops he sent. But I’m not sending it to his capital because I think it’s too big for me to take on. The player has 16 villages for crying out loud! I’m taking in one of his smaller villages.I have many troops stowed away so I can use them. Although sadly, troops that I have distributed among my other villages are now gone because all my villages have attacks now. So the troops that I had made everyday are no longer there. It scared me for a moment though because I thought I had zero troops left. Good thing I still have thousands kept safe and I’ll slowly pull them out.

Yes, I know that this is not the wisest decision but I have to try something, somehow. Maybe, just maybe, I can get attackers to quit farming my villages. This time, there’s a harm in trying but I’m willing to accept what ever consequences this may lead.

Wish me luck!

It’s Time To Experiment!


That’s it! I give up!

I though it was a terrible thing already having so many attacks on one village. I kept on transferring resources and distributing them to each of my villages to dodge attacks. Now, all of my villages have incoming attacks and I don’t know what to do anymore. There’s nowhere for me to transfer my resources and troops to keep them safe. I’m all out of choices.

So today, I have decided. I’ll take risks on experimenting on different things. Win or lose, I don’t care anymore. I just want to see what will happen when I do certain things. Becoming too conscious and protective of my village won’t do my any good. I have to do something that hopefully will stir things up.

So from tomorrow on, let the experimentation begin!
