Boom Beach: MegaCrab Speed Serum Event

One of our favorite mobile gaming companies has released one of their most notorious baddies upon us this 4th of July weekend.   Dr. T’s dreaded creation MegaCrab! This time MegaCrab brought with him a new update called the Speed Serum.  The Speed Serum introduces a new aspect in the fun filled level ladder climb of MegaCrab.  The MegaCrab Speed Serum has us enjoying MegaCrab in whole new light. Last time we saw the introduction of the Freeze Bombs or Cryo Bombs.  We also have a new troop the Cryoneer in our arsenal to help take this MegaCrab speed serum release down.  I am extremely curious how Boomers will use the Cryoneer in strategic ways to beat the MegaCrab Speed Serum Levels.  Unfortunately, I am still progressing my account, and will not be able to use the Cryoneer.

MegaCrab is one of my things to attempt, and I am always happy when supercell releases him upon the Boom Beach World.  MegaCrab offers us a break from our daily island plunder hopping grind.  The introduction of megacab has been a great update to the Boom Beach Mobile Legacy.  On top of that we have been fortunate to have encountered him three times thus far.  He’s been appearing almost every two months, and as stated before I am happy SuperCell is giving us new dynamic opportunities to stretch our boom beach troop gaming skills.

My MegaCrab Speed Serum Strategy will be utilizing my Heavy, Zooka, and Medic troop types.  I will try to use good pathing to beat each stage while keeping in mind that I definitely will be making several attempts at some stages.

In the past I have been able to progress fairly far in the MegaCrab event.  In the first MegaCrab event I was able to get to Stage 20.  However, I was never able to quite overcome it.  Luckily since then I have been able to progress my account much further along.  However, I do believe with each additional MegaCrab release SuperCell has done an excellent job of making the stage progress in the MegaCrab event much more difficult by adding things like the freeze bomb and speed serum.

Stage 20 First MegaCrab Release:

Here is some game play of taking down the MegaCrab Speed Serum Stages 1-10 Update:

I want to wish everyone good luck in their ladder climb, and resource collection.  MegaCrab offers us a great boost to our resources other than our typically daily raid.  Megcrab also gives us a great pay back.  It’s very invigorating watching fellow boomers tackle MegaCrab, and makes for some friendly task force competitions.  MegaCrab has been a great boost in the past for my account, and usually allowed me to stockpile resources to progress my headquarters.  However, I need to stay vigilant in spending them as well, because MegaCrab offers a great weekend of raiding your neighbor’s bases as well.  I highly encourage you to keep a close eye on your neighbors this weekend because I am willing to bet you can score some big paydays off them as they participate in the MegaCrab Speed Serum Release.

Have a Happy 4th of July weekend, and enjoy the MegaCrab Speed Serum Event! Happy Crabbing!

Clash Royale: Tutorial and Initial Review

Clash Royale: Tutorial and Initial Review

Clash Royale was dropped for Global Download today by Supercell, the makers of Clash of Clans.  Since, I am a big fan of Clash of Clans I decided to check it out.

Tutorial: Training Grounds

After playing through the Training Grounds, I have really grown an appreciation for the new Clash Royale App.  It offers a unique way of playing live person vs. person tower defense.  It combines a cards aspect with that of a Role Playing Game to level your troops.

Tower Defense

Virtually Clash Royale is a Tower Defense Strategy game.  The idea is to pummel your opponent’s three towers to smithereens, before they get yours.  Clash Royale gives you an assortment of gameplay options to accomplish that task.  The unique cards you can use are things like the Fireball to directly target your opponent’s troops or towers.  Each card has its own elixir cost, and you get a maximum of 10 elixir for casting.  The initial cards you get range between 2-5 elixir to cast.  As you collect more cards you are able to change out your deck for different cards.

Cards

Cards will either represent resources to replenish thing like your gold which is used to level your troops for one.  They also represent new unique troops in Clash Royale.  The Troops have some cross over with Clash of Clans (Giant, Mini PEKKA), however we see some new unique troops from Supercell.  Some of the early troops from the training we get are Knight, Musketeer, and Baby Dragon (one of my favorite troops so far with splash damage great for taking out groups of troops).

Chests

You get new troops by defeating your opponents and collecting chests!  You can only have four chests available to open, and can only open one at a time.  Each chest has a time clock associated with it before it can be opened giving you new cards.

Beginner Strategy

One of the things I have been doing so far early on is amassing my elixir to drop my bigger cards that I have allotted in my deck.  I also like to wait for my opponents plays so I can try and counter what they have.  I particularly like when they drop giants so I can focus fire on my side of the river to let my troops group up.  I try to mainly focus on one side of the map, as the troops have two bridge options while approaching your opponent.

To me in my initial review it has all been about control and setting up your troops for success in Clash Royale.  By focusing on one side, I think it’s easier to get the King’s Tower down faster.

Trophies & Arenas

As you continue past the training grounds you will get into different arenas.  You are able to fight other opponents with similar Trophy ranks in those Arenas.  The different Arenas will open you up to a lot of different card types and ultimately change your gameplay!

Good luck and enjoy Clash Royale!
