Lot of big updates in the mobile gaming world that myself and many blog readers are part of, so lets talk about them!
First, did I know Damian Schubert works on Dungeon Boss? He’s the hotbar salesmen from SW:TOR right? It kinda makes sense actually; Dungeon Boss is a good mobile title, but its business model is not only Pay-4-Power, but also has a lot of ‘that makes zero sense’ built into it. I bet Damian did all of that work, and others did all the work that is actually good.
Moving on, a big update has hit DB that added Guilds (again, I’m guessing the fact you have to pay 500 gems to create one is Damian Shubert’s touch). If you are playing and want to join up, the name is Inquisition. The update also added a new dungeon where you fight up a tower, with damage and energy from each battle carrying over, but you can switch heroes after every battle. I’ve only done a few levels, but I do like that this will encourage leveling up more than just four heroes, especially because there are a lot of cool and interesting heroes in the game. Finally there is an Evo combination system, but the hotbar saleman basically ruined that by adding a gem cost for the stuff that is actually hard to get. Nice work buddy.
Clash of Clans also had a huge update, most notably adding Town Hall 11 to the game. No one in our clan is THAT close to moving up to TH11 (I’m near-max TH9, so likely won’t see TH11 for a good number of months if not a year), but since our clan is level 5+, the new troop levels at TH11 will come into play for us during wars from donations. In particular, I’m curious to see how strong level 3 witches are going to be. Plus there will be the ‘fun’ of being matched up with a clan that has a TH11, that should be really interesting.
Speaking of donation, you can now also donate one dark elixir spell, which is a HUGE power boost, as this means you can now take out two air defenses with lighting/quake. I expect a lot of air-focused attacks in wars at the TH9 level because of this. I also wonder if using 8 quakes to take out two large sections of walls with a GoWiPe attack is going to be a thing.
Between those updates and the somewhat recent Boom Beach update that added HQ21, things are busy and a lot of fun in mobile land. Our CoC… clan is full, but feel free to apply to our Boom Beach task force (Hardcore Casual) or the Dungeon Boss guild (Inquisition).
