The new update is still very fresh and the community is not calming down about it. It’s about time to get some of your feedback together and share my point of view.
I delayed this a couple of days so things could settle down a little bit. The hype created a mood that I found to be too heated to get some honest results.
This update has turned out a lot different than expected when it comes to feedback. I know many out there feel that all the effort they’ve spent building up their main base is basically lost since Clash of Clans seems to start over with a new base, the Builder Base.
I admit, it feels like the new Builder Base is a lot more separated from the main base than necessary. The new Versus Mode should have been included with the main base. I have been thinking about this for a long time and, in the end, it would not bring the same feeling – a REAL, new game mode. If the Versus Battles would take part with our main bases, it would not really be a new game mode. It would simply be attacking ring base after ring base after ring base.
The fresh feeling of this new game mode (that I personally enjoy a lot) is only possible on a fresh field and I think Supercell did manage to implement that in a nice way.
In general, you should stop thinking about the Builder Base as the future of the game were we all need to start over. It’s more like a mini game inside Clash of Clans where you can spend some time having fun while your troops are training or all your Builders are busy.
We all knew that this was coming at some point, just look at our bases. Pre TH10 was nice, but after that it turned into a mess. My TH11 base is just so crowded. Ring layouts are the only thing that really works on defense in Champions League up. There’s literally no space for new troops, defenses or other elements to add. I think this is a good step.
Here At AllClash
I frequently get comments (or emails) that are inappropriate, but this time it reached a new level that I want to talk about. I was insulted for having a positive feedback about the update and for removing comments.
I want to point out that I removed several comments, not because they included a negative opinion about the update, but because they were full of insulting curse words and I don’t feel like editing them out manually. If someone thinks the only way to express their opinion is by using insulting words, I don’t feel like discussing with this person in a reasonable way at all.
This is my blog. I spend my time creating it and maintaining it, so it’s my own decision. If someone is coming here cursing, insulting somebody else (or me) and accusing me of something or even threatening me (or my family), I don’t need to let that happen. You wouldn’t allow someone to do that at your home and this is my “digital” home.
Those of you who have followed me for quite some time know that I always try to keep you updated with news and strategies, but I also include my own opinion.
If I like the update, that’s my opinion. If you don’t like the update, that’s your opinion. That doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it in a commonsensical way. Respecting other opinions is the key. You’re welcome to do that, but keep in mind that I don’t earn a dime from the game or from Supercell, so please see me as a player like you – because that’s what I am.
I’m happy to discuss with you in the comments and read your feedback, no matter if we have the same opinion, but just mind some general rules:
- No cursing, accusing, insulting
- Comments with links are often times held for moderation automatically
- Comments with curse words are held for moderation automatically (and also deleted most of the time, by me, because I don’t want to have this here on my website that gets viewed by children)
Update Feedback Polls
I created several polls to see if the community is really hating the new update as much as the official forums or some comments here claim.
Please help me put your votes into context by providing some info about your Clash background.
Now please let me know what you would like to see on AllClash in the future (multiple answers if possible)
