Hello everyone, DamonDaBoss here with another Star Wars post! Today’s post will be about one of the two Star Wars games on this blog as of now, which is, obviously, Star Wars: Force Arena! This post will be about Star Wars because of May Fourth, the unofficial Star Wars holiday. The previous post about the holiday is above, like usual. Now let’s get into today’s post!
To the left of this test is an example of Kernel Writing Text Structures, and I’ll be using one of them in today’s post (But, the one I’m using isn’t in the left hand image).
The structure I’ll be using today will be the Going Against the Grain prompt. This prompt focuses on comparing what the majority of people believe in, with the view of oneself. This is perfect for a Star Wars: Force Arena post, because many people, like in Clash Royale, all use popular “meta” decks, while I always make my own unique decks in any games I play. The actual writing steps for this prompt are shown in the below image, in the last rectangular box below. But that’s enough about the educational, informative, and somewhat boring side of this post, let’s now get into the gaming part of this special Star Wars blog post!
Here are my two favorite heroes to use in the game, for each side. Since this game has two different sides, the dark side (Galactic Empire), and the light side (The Rebel Alliance), it has two different levels and decks; one for each side.
My first favorite hero, of both the two, is actually my Galactic Empire hero, Dengar.
Some people think that the best dark side deck has to have Emperor Palpatine; not going to lie, but he’s really quite good. He actually might be the best hero overall, but I tend to enjoy using heroes with guns and long range more than those with a shorter range (which the Emperor is at a middle ground, not quite melee, but not far range). Still, he’s considered one of the best dark side heroes due to his importance in the Star Wars movies, and the Emperor abilities he has.
This seems to happen because Emperor Palpatine has a very powerful and special Unique, that only he can have (as each hero has a Unique back-up troop that only they can use in their deck). The unique he has are the Royal Guards; cheap fighters that have decent health, good power, very fast speed, and a stun effect.
However I believe that Dengar is the best dark side hero because he has great range, good health, great attack, decent speed, and a special bomb bullet that he can use after consecutive attacks.
But I know people feel strongly that the Emperor is the best hero in the Galactic Empire because of his Royal Guards, his lighting attack (that hits multiple targets at once), and his strong attack.
Even so, I will always love using Dengar as my competitive dark side hero because of his bomb attack, his good range, and his Unique (which like the Emperor’s Unique, stuns targets. The differences, though, are that it’s name is 4-LOM, it has ranged attacks, and it was, “A rusty droid with insectile features, 4-LOM was originally a protocol droid, but logic glitches allowed him to escape his programming and become a bounty hunter. That proved a perfect occupation for the cold, calculating mechanical.” – Star Wars Databank.
Now here’s my second favorite hero; my first favorite light side hero, Bodhi Rook.
Some people think, well actually A TON of people think, that the best Rebel Alliance hero is Luke Skywalker. I mean, just like the Emperor in the Galactic Empire, he’s quite powerful, but again, I prefer the long ranged qualities of Bodhi Rook. He may be weak in attack and health, but his special that lets him summon energy (used to spawn ally troops) and health packs (used to heal heroes) makes him worth using. But still, Luke Skywalker has amazing speed, attack, and good health; all traits that make him one of the most used heroes in the game.
This seems to happen because his Unique is Obi Wan Kenobi, a very expensive troop to summon, but one that can turn the enemy troops against one another using his powerful force abilities. People often overlook the less used, and “unimportant” heroes on both the sides, but they often are the most powerful overall.
However I believe that Bodhi Rook is the best light side hero in the long run. His Unique lets him summon a ship that focuses a lot of fire in one area, dealing powerful area damage. This is great to use against cheap enemy troops, and it has often been the game changer for me. Not only does he have a good Unique, but if he’s used correctly, his attacks can be devastating over a long period of time, and his special can keep him in the fight longer.
But I know people feel strongly that Luke Skywalker, or even the amazing Ezra Bridger, who might even best Luke because of his special abilities, are the best heroes on the light side anyway.
Even so, I will always be a big fan of Bodhi Rook, especially since they’re “buffing” him, or making him better, in future updates. So even if I think he’s good now, and he is, I wonder what using him will be like after the future updates roll in.
That’s it for today’s special Star Wars Kernel Writing Post!

If you haven’t heard of this mini holiday, then I’m sorry for your loss. For today is the well-known holiday for all things Star Wars! As you might have guessed, I’m a big Star Wars fan, and I love all the movies (Some more than others, but I won’t get into that right now), the games, the comics (though I’ll hardly read any), and all the merchandise! I used to always ask for Star Wars legos on my birthday, for Christmas, and whenever I had money to spare. But that’s just one reason why I love this holiday. If I listed all of the reasons why I like Star Wars in one post, it would probably exceed the words you’re willing to read in a single post! Anyway, here’s a little description about this holiday, and some update post info.
So, just in case you don’t know the famous quote, “May the Force be with you” from the Star Wars trilogy, then you should know that it’s probably the most famous Star Wars quote of all time, partially because there’s a mini holiday about it, which is, May the Fourth [be with you]. It’s an inspirational quote said by the famous scoundrel main character, Han Solo, to Luke Skywalker when, as the google definiton states, “Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, while overviewing the plan to destroy the Death Star, General Jan Dodonna told the Rebel pilots. Similarly, Han Solo said it (the famous words, “May the Force be with you”) to Skywalker while preparing to leave Yavin 4, despite not being a strong believer in the Force.” If any of these words confuse you, that’s completely normal, unless you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan, such as myself. Alright, now that’s enough explanation of the holiday itself, there’s so much more to say, but all that can be found on anywhere on the internet, and it doesn’t have to be all on this one post. Now to the update!
As I already have a category for Star Wars, I thought it best to post about one, or both, of the listed Star Wars games on this blog very soon (to celebrate this holiday a bit, and to update everyone on how I”m doing in Star Wars Force Arena, and Galaxy of Heroes). Also, more blog applications will open later this month, so be ready for that if you have interest of joining the NGA community!
Below are a few quotes I thought you would all also like to see, as they bring in more of the Star Wars mood to this post!
Amazing, epic, and well known Star Wars quotes: (All acquired from the website page by Parade about the holiday)
Title card: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”
Darth Vader (A New Hope): “I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.”
Obi Wan Kenobi (A New Hope): “Remember…the Force will be with you, always.”
Han Solo (A New Hope): “Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, farm boy.”
Darth Vader (A New Hope): “The force is strong with this one.”
Obi Wan Kenobi (A New Hope) : “Use the force, Luke.”
Yoda (The Empire Strikes Back): “Judge me by my size, do you?”
Yoda (The Empire Strikes Back): “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Luke (The Empire Strikes Back): I won’t fail you. I’m not afraid.
Yoda: You will be. You… will… be.
C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): “I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.”
Luke Skywalker (Return of the Jedi): “No. You’re coming with me. I’ll not leave you here, I’ve got to save you.”
Darth Vader: “You already… have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister… you were right.”
Yoda (The Phantom Menace): “Fear is the path to the dark side.”
Qui-Gon Jinn (The Phantom Menace): “Remember: Your focus determines your reality.”
Shmi Skywalker (The Phantom Menace): “You can’t stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting.”
Anakin (Attack of the Clones): “Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi’s life. So you might say, that we are encouraged to love.”
Obi-Wan (Attack of the Clones): “Be mindful of your thoughts Anakin. They’ll betray you.”
Anakin (Attack of the Clones): “Someday I will be the most powerful Jedi ever.”
Padmé (Revenge of the Sith): “What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we have been fighting to destroy?”
Obi-Wan (Revenge of the Sith): “You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them. You were to bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness.”
Count Dooku (Revenge of the Sith): “I sense great fear in you, Skywalker. You have hate. You have anger. But you don’t use them.”

Cory’s First Blog Post! Check out his blog right here to see more of the content he posts weekly on his blog! Also, Mr. Boss is what he refers to me, DamonDaBoss, as. Now, without further ado, here’s his post about Clash Royale.
Don’t you just love Clash Royale? Me too! (Nah I’m kidding, I don’t even play this game anymore but I’ll write about it because I have nothing else to write about and since Mr. Boss’ blog is about Clash Royale, I’ll write about Clash Royale. (He’s totally messing with all of you, he actually likes the game deep down! – DamonDaBoss). I started to play Clash Royale I believe March last year. I remember playing on my friend’s account. His name was “moistytoes.” Yep, I know, weird name. He got it when it was first released and I remember playing with the OP prince on his account and I just spammed everything down and hoped to destroy my opponents. When I got the game, I remember my first epic as being a baby dragon. Fast forward to summer, I stopped playing a game, only battling like twice a week or so and I was beginning to get seriously bored of the game. A few months later during Halloween, I finally found my first legendary from the legendary chest I found from battling,(because everyone was finding legendaries so I decided to battle) and I got the graveyard. Pretty spooky right? A graveyard unboxed on Halloween. A few weeks later I bought a legendary chest and got the miner. So these legendaries got me back into Clash Royale, for like a week or two anyway, and then I just stopped playing altogether, occasionally coming on the collect my free chests and request cards. One day just two weeks ago, I nonchalantly opened up the game and sped through my free chests, and I got my first legitimate legendary; the log. I celebrated for a good fifteen seconds then was back to my calm state since I don’t even play this game anymore. This was my first legitimate legendary since the first one I got from a guaranteed legendary from the legendary chest and the second one I bought, which was also guaranteed a legendary. So today I only get on when there is a clan battle event going on. I am currently level 10 with 2869 trophies, which I’ve had since July. I don’t have pictures of the unboxing of the graveyard and the miner because they disappeared into the abyss. Below are pictures of my current deck, which I use for clan battles, and the opening of the log.
Hello world, it’s DamonDaBoss here with another Clash Royale post! I know, it’s crazy! Actually, there hasn’t been a Clash Royale post on NGA for some time now, so I thought it’d be appropriate to talk about some new cards, talk about how I’m doing in the game personally, and of course, give you some advice on the game! Today’s post is about… wait never mind I already did that. ANYWAY, let’s get right into the post!
Now, it’s been a long time since my last Clash Royale post, and there’s just so much to talk about so I’ll start from the beginning and summarize the unimportant parts. The last post had an image of the now Hog Mountain, which was actually Legendary Arena when I made that post. Now I technically can say I’ve never been in Jungle Arena (Since I was in the Arena 10 Legendary Arena when it came out) or Hog Mountain (At least ever since it’s been called Hog Mountain, since the moment the new Legendary Arena came out I was put into it based on my trophies; I’ve never dropped into Hog Mountain either).
From this being Legendary Arena…
To this new amazing arena!
Anyway, that’s just the arena changes, but here are a few more that I’ve had on my profile. I officially turned into a level 11 this Sunday, which is amazing for me, since I’ve been a level 10 for the longest time now, and it helps a lot with card interactions (health on towers and damage down by towers). This helps especially since more than 90% of the players I go against are level 11 or up (.5% are level 13s, and around 4% are level 12), and and I only battle level 10s around 10% of the time. But even as a level 10, my wins were very high for my level and skill, and I actually would rather battle level 11s because their skill level usually was worse than other “out of the usual arena” players like level 10s. Anyway, my personal high was 4486 trophies, which I got in the last season (the second season with leagues like Challenger 1 and up) in Challenger 2. During that season though, I was gone for a week because of the cruise I recently went on, so I know for a fact that I could’ve gotten to Challenger 3 with my deck, even as a level 10 at the time.
The deck to the left is a picture of my deck prior to my leaving of the cruise, as I’m still a level 10 in the picture, but the deck and levels in it haven’t changed in the slightest. Even in the post I did a long time ago, I believe, I used the same deck, since It’s been steady in all the metas (stages of card uses and declines) and balance changes that the game has had. I actually wanted to change one of the cards in it out for the heal, but I found that my deck works best the way it is, even without using the unpredictable level 7 heal spell that I have. I intend on using this deck until one of the cards, or more, are severely nerfed, and I hope it can take me to 5000 trophies and beyond. The chest I got for the now one month long (it used to be 2 weeks for a season) season chest was only decent, as it didn’t have a legendary this time, but here’s an image of it below.
I actually won 11 wins on the heal spell challenge as well, which was an incredible challenge with amazing rewards like a free giant chest, the new heal spell, and 25,000 gold (I used the gold to upgrade my fire spirits to level 12, making me turn level 11 in the first place)! I sadly didn’t get to 12 wins (My phone shut off on the last battle, as I didn’t charge my phone after my back to back battles in the challenge), but that’s alright since I only played the challenge once, using my free entry, and not wasting 100 gems just to get more heal spells. I also got a legendary Princess, and more heals, so I think the chest was still amazing to get in the first place. There’s also a heal spell offer as of today, but I don’t know if I should use 200 gems on the 100 heal spells, since I’ve taken a long break from paying money in the game, and I don’t intend to for a LONG time. COMMENT DOWN BELOW IF I SHOULD BUY IT OR NOT, BUT DO SO QUICKLY; IT WILL ONLY LAST A LITTLE BIT LONGER! Here’s an image of that card pack as well. I also had some other cool chests and challenges that I’ve done, so I’ll put a few more images together in a slideshow format at the bottom of the post for a bit more information. I honestly think that’s enough for the update part, because I just spewed a good amount of information at you, my viewers, in a short amount of space, so let’s move on to the advice.
What should you do when you encounter a heal spell in a real battle, since more and more people will have them in hog mountain and above as time goes on. Well…
First, notice the elixir your opponent just spent. If they used an expensive push like Elite Barbarians, Hog Rider, and then a heal after a few seconds, (Yes, I’ve actually seen these plays made in the heal spell challenge, and in TV Royale) you could counter the push with minimal damage with:
Goblin Gang, and some other support (Ex: Electro Wizard, Wizard, Ice Wizard, Valkyrie, Bowler, etc.)
Fire Spirits (Alone if the levels match up with the E-Barb levels, making them easy to kill by any other troop, or with another support right away if the fire spirits are underleveled compared to the Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians.)
These are just a few suggested counters to many big heal pushes like the example. I personally use my Ice Wizard and Mega Minion together to stop Elite Barbarians or Hogs, with other troops such as my fire spirits or skeleton army (depending on the rotation), and I love to use Lighting against combos like the Hog E-Barb combination, since it throws them off, and I can log, or fire spirit, them before they can start to heal. Like I said earlier, the heal spell is very new to the game, and just depending on your deck style, try to find a balance with counters and counter pushes relating to the heal spell (Also the Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians should have counters in your deck. Trust me, you’ll see those cards used a lot the higher you go in arenas, or in the lower arenas for that matter, and I mean these cards will be used A LOT; so be ready). That’s really it for the advice on today’s post. Just be ready for some crazy expensive combos, some goblin barrel and miner combos, and some other cheap combos with the amazing heal spell!
MORE FUN INFORMATION:
I’ve been checking this website called Stats Royale lately, to see my chest cycles and all statistics about the current meta, cards to use, most popular decks for challenges, tournaments, and ladder matches, and their win ratios, etc. and this website is amazing! Not only is it supported by Supercell, as it was shown on News Royale, but I highly recommend using it to check out what’s happening on the inside of the game with every update! I also suggest using deckshop.pro for a rundown on your deck based on your arena; letting you know what it’s good against, what it is weak to, what it’s great, amazing, or good with, and what you should change. It actually rated my deck as really good overall, and It said that I had no card weaknesses, but that it didn’t have many synergies between my cards (It only has 1 synergy, which means it there only is 1 really good card combination in my deck).
That’s it for today’s long post about Clash Royale! I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did making it, since I’m so happy to start up the Clash Royale section of this blog again! As always, have a great day, and please re-blog, like, comment, etc. on this blog if you liked the post (everything helps keep this blog running, and staying relevant to what YOU guys want to see)! Also, don’t forget to Clash On!
Hello everyone and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! Today we will be embarking on a new category in NiceGamingAdvice, the One Day Games category! This will be all about small games that become popular for a little time, and about how to play them in order to fit in with everyone else playing these popular games!
Today’s post will be about Ballz, a Ketchapp game. This game has swept the app store and has gained thousands upon thousands of downloads recently, due to its fast paced and easy way to play. But after getting farther in the levels, the game becomes much harder. Strategy is then needed, and that’s where NGA comes in!
In order to play, one must drag the ball in the position desired and release for the balls to go to that location, to either break the block, or bounce off of it until it’s broken. Every time the balls are released and finish their cycle of hitting the squares, the next “wave” starts and more squares are pushed down to the lighter grey line. If these squares reach the light grey line, they make the game end, and the player must restart to either gain more gold hoops (which are acquired by hitting the gold hoops in between the squares) to use in the store, or to reach a new personal best high score. When someone plays this game though, there is much more to know than to drag the balls (which more are acquired through hitting the white floating balls) at a single square and release. Here are a few quick strategy tips on what to do in this game, in order to beat all your friends!
Tip #1: Use the walls the to rebound the balls in order to hit as many squares as possible! The more contact that’s made with the different squares, the more value each ball will have.
Tip #2: Always aim for the squares closest to the ground unless there are weaker squares that can lead to desired gold hoops or even more balls. Strategy is needed for this game, and not always is it best to simple ram the 6 block (shown in the picture to the right of this test).
Tip #3: Have fun with the game, don’t always play to win, but play to enjoy this app. The best score can be fun to see by a player, but sometimes aiming for the hoops and taking a few risks can be more rewarding than simply playing to see how many squares you can destroy.
That’s it for today’s post about Ballz, and this is the first of many One Day Games with DamonDaBoss. I hope you all enjoyed your Spring Breaks as much as I did (especially if you actually have them :p) even if they were a few weeks ago, or if they will happen in a few weeks.
As always, have a great day and enjoy life! Also, don’t forget to follow, comment, or re-post this blog for more updates, content, and material for your own personal consumption.

Although Dark Magician isn’t really in the meta nowadays, it can be fun using it with all of its immense amount of support cards. I’ll be showing you a 40 main deck and 15 side deck that my friend and I have been having lots of fun with. This Dark Magician deck focuses on special summoning Dark Magician from the graveyard using Eternal Soul and using Rank 7 Xyzs along with DMOC.

Dark Magician – the deck revolves around him, can be used for rank 7 XYZs, use 3
Dark Magician of Chaos – the boss monster of the deck, can banish monsters when destroyed, retrieves a spell card from the graveyard when summoned, can be a brick at times so only use 1 or 2 if you’re bold

Summoner Monk – discard 1 spell card, special summon 1 lvl 4 monster from the deck for some rank 4 plays
Magician’s Rod – when normal summoned, can add a spell/trap card that lists “Dark Magician” in the text, can tribute 1 Spellcaster-Type to add to your hand when you activate a spell’trap card during the opponent’s turn
Allure of Darkness – banish Dark monster, draw 2 cards, use 1-2
Dark Magic Attack – when controlling a “Dark Magician” you destroy all their backrow, use 2-3
Raigeki – nuke their monsters, you can only use 1
Dark Magic Veil/Dark Magic Curtain – pay LP (Veil pays 1k, Curtain pays half your current LP) and special summon a Dark Magician from the hand or graveyard
Dark Magic Expanded – use 2, based on the Dark Magicians and Dark Magician Girls on the field or graveyards:
1+ : 1 Dark Spellcaster monster gains 1k ATK for 1 turn,

3+ : Dark Spellcaster monsters you control can’t be affected by opponent card effects for 1 turn

Dark Magical Circle – can search for Dark Magician and his support cards, when a Dark Magician is summoned you can banish a card the opponent controls

I will start you off with a position that allows you to write your own material, and edit it as desired, but which allows me to have the final say in the posting part. Your position on the blog will change as loyalty, dedication, and trust are shown. I will be very tolerable about what you post as long as it follows these simple guidelines: 1. Do not use vulgar, inappropriate, or “cussing” language in any posts. 2. Write about video games, keep the content consistent so that categories can be made about the topics. 3. Do not “hate” on NGA in any way, and show no political, religious, or racial views on any content, or in any comments (or risk losing the rights to the blog). 4. Lastly, use pictures, be entertaining, and try to be active in the blog when possible. There are so many possibilities on what you can do/write about, so be creative, and make it obvious that you enjoy what you do as a member of NiceGamingAdvice. Have a great day, get ready to post, and welcome to the NGA team!
Bloggers on the NGA team should also remember this extra info. Here’s another example message I would send after the first (The messages will vary and usually be more personalized, depending on the individual recipients).
Also, try to post similarly to my style, use my recent CONTENT in posts as examples. Try and use #NiceGamingAdvice as a tag as often as possible, write excerpts in the extra content part of the post, and get feature images (Appropriate to the topic). It’s nice when the posts have images, so use those, and even links, when possible. Thanks again!
If this wasn’t enough information, please contact me personally, or simply comment through a blog post. All of this is meant for new members of NGA, but some of it is for others to see for future use (such as the top part, letting others know when more blog applications will open up).
So, as many of you know, I sent out a post (this post) about blog applications and about the 30th post on this website. At first the requests were slow, but they sped up enormously near the end. Finally, there will officially be two members added to NGA! (A little advice: Sorry if any of you applied but didn’t make it, I was looking for 2-3 people and 9 applications were simply too much for NGA as of now. Be ready for next time though!).
The new members are Cory and gabenweb! Feel free to check out their blogs if you want! Also, I’m super excited to be working with these new members, and please let us know what we can do, as a team, to keep NGA relevant and fun to visit! Thanks everyone, and now expect some posts coming here and there from other bloggers (but they’ll still be on the topic of games of course).
They will be send some guidelines to follow, which I will be trying to incorporate to this blog ASAP.
