Controversy strikes again within the Supercell world of Clash of Clans. No matter the opinion, the game has staying power.

Clash of Clans is another game in the Supercell line up. Published on August 12th, 2012, Clash of Clans in the second Supercell game published. Clash of Clans is essentially the model game for all the future Supercell games released after it. The game is played from a top-down perspective, and similarly to Brawl Stars and Clash Royale, it uses a the same cartoon character drawing style. Just like the other Supercell games, this game too is heavily criticized for its in game microtransaction store, and pay to win play style.

Similar to the other Supercell games, Clash of Clans undergoes frequent updates and content additions. The game receives regular updates, ranging in size and content. Unlike the rare but large updates Clash Royale and Brawl Stars receive, Clash of Clans receives constant small updates, with a large update every couple of months. “Clash of Clans is great when it comes for content, there’s a content update like every couple of months” said Clash of Clans player Nick Justice. The latest update for Clash of Clans is very promising as it makes changes to the Clan War League, adding changes for rewards, and improving the Clan War League search browser.

Just like any other Supercell game, Clash of Clans does have it’s fair share of haters. “Clash of Clans is actually bad, it takes forever to upgrade the building and unlock new stuff” said former Clash of Clans player David Gillespie. Clash of Clans does suffer greatly from this problem, upgrades on building can range from a couple of minutes, to weeks depending on the building level. Since every player has dozens of buildings, it would take years to fully upgrade everything. “Supercell games want too much money, they want money for every upgrade” said another former Clash of Clans player, Triston Seaford. Since Clash of Clans is free to play, microtransactions in the form of gems exist within the game. They follow the same layout Brawl Stars and Clash Royale follow, allowing the buyer to use the gems to buy resources and speed up upgrades.

Although Clash of Clans does have its flaws, the game essentially pioneered future Supercell games. Releases so early on, the game served as a template for future Supercell games such as Clash Royale and Brawl Stars. Hate it or love it, Clash of Clans is here to stay.
