Last Final, Summer Plans, Slower Posting (For Summertime, and hopefully back to normal when School starts up again)

First things first, THANKS FOR BEING SUCH GREAT FRIENDS/FOLLOWERS/VIEWERS! This blog has been through a lot in it’s making: hate, support, uncertainty, but it’s still been around because of the support that I’ve received from all of you fellow bloggers, friends, and associates. I know I’ve been really absent on WordPress for like 10 days, and this will sadly continue, but here’s why. Also, I’ve been absent thus far because of Finals I’ve been taking in High School, which have been time-consuming and hard.

My Summer Schedule is packed, and you’ll see why.

  • 1 week of a fun youth camp
  • 1 week of choir performances
  • 2 weeks in Utah visiting cousins and relatives
  • Getting a Part time Job
  • and sooooooo much more!

That’s it for this little update, I can’t wait to be back on WordPress actively, but until then, keep being awesome and enjoy Summer!

Quick Update

Hey everyone, this is DamonDaBoss. Today’s post won’t be about gaming, as my computer is having issues, and I can’t efficiently do a good gaming post. I also have Finals in school, so I need to study for those anyway. But here goes nothing, a little update on what’s going on in NGA!

Update:

  1. I might have a company sponsoring NiceGamingAdvice… so that’s pretty cool!
  2. I only have two more weeks of school, counting this one, until Summer. There are days ahead of us!
  3. My computer is having issues, so I’m trying to fix it so I can do a planned post I almost have ready (also all the data and whatnot is on that computer, so it’ll take a long time to transfer that over to this phone).
  4. NiceGamingAdvice might get an upgrade, look-wise and video-wise, in the future (if It continues to get more popular)!
  5. There are polls on NGA, so check them out here!

That’s about it for today, I’ll make sure to at least do one post later this week. Sorry for the irregular scheduling! Spread the word about NiceGamingAdvice by liking, viewing, sharing, re-blogging, etc.! Bye, and have a great day!

 

Clash of Clans: The Biggest Update, and a Clash Expert

-Previous Post- (In this category)  

Be sure to check out the ongoing Blog Applications before they end at the end of this month!

Also, be sure check out the new polls in the polls section of NGA!

This post will be short, but there is much more that could be written about the new Clash of Clans update. Because, as many of you CoC players know, Clash of Clans is back!

Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! This post will be the first post that I’ve done, where the content inside it isn’t actually mine, besides the writing I do. (meaning the words, as I do use other people’s images, sites, etc. in my posts. But yes, I always give them credit for their work). As many of you know, and as shown above, I have been putting out blog applications for NGA in all my recent posts since early May. One of the bloggers who is joining the team, and who is not only an expert in all things Clash [of clans, and Clash Royal], but who is a great guy as I’ve gotten to know him better, is STLCardinalFan2. This very blogger is active both on his blog, and his youtube channel, and now he’s going to be a common sight on NGA, so knowing this made me pretty excited to have him on NGA’s team. Now, the reason I bring him up is because the majority of the content of this short post will be from his blog’s two recent posts on this update. There are only summaries of the posts on here, so feel free to check his blog out, follow it, and get quality Clash content regularly. With all that aside, let’s get into the “post.”


Complete Update List for Builder Base Update Here’s his first post talking about the Builder’s Base update in Clash of Clans. This one was a general run-through of the whole update, so definitely check it out to know more of the general facts of the new land, new troops, and new way to play CoC. I didn’t add this as one of the mini-excerpts because the other two posts he did afterward it fit this post best.

Here is the first excerpt from his advice (I know, he’s totally already doing what NiceGamingAdvice does!), and I hope it proves useful to all you who are curious about the new update that revived the Clash of Clans popularity (The picture for this one is the featured image).

Builder’s base is here in from the Clash of Clans May update and you will need to know how to start your new builder’s base as well as defend the home village. Here’s an introduction to builder’s base as well as some strategy on how to attack within builder’s base. So here’s a video I […] Keep reading by clicking the link below.

via Builder’s Base Intro and Strategy – Clash of Clans May Update — Clash for Dummies

Here is the second excerpt of STLCardinalFan2‘s post about base design tips and layouts for certain leveled bases. This post, along with all his other Builder’s Base posts, was a great read, and it was very helpful to me, and probably to many other Clashers out there who restarted their Clash of Clans accounts for this update (I’m a level 90 in Crysal League. I finally got my minions up to level 4 and my Barbarians King is level 10, my Archer Queen is level 5, and… You get the idea, I like the game again). I just want to say that if you once played Clash of Clans, and thought about starting it up again; do it now! What better time to get back in the game than when you can be, like everyone else, new to the game, with a chance to become one of the best in later days.

Just like in the home village, base design and base layouts are key to success in versus battles for Clash of Clans! Here are some great base design tips, as well as some of the best builder’s base layouts to win in builder’s base in Clash of Clans! Base Design Tips for Builder’s Base Now […] Keep reading by clicking the link below.

This post was really about letting you all know that I have a strong Clash of Clans blogger on NGA now, who I know I can count on, so expect some on and off content for games like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and whatever else he wants to post about on NGA! Thank you STLCardinalFan2! There are others on this blog’s team that will be mentioned in the future.

I hope you liked this post, as it was fun for me to make, and I hope you enjoyed the Clash for Dummies content by checking out STLCardinalFan2’s blog through the links given. As always, have a great day everyone, and don’t forget to like, follow, re-blog, comment, and share this blog for better content, more content focused towards what you want, and more posting in general!

Limited Blog Applications pt. 2

It’s time.

Time for more Blog Applications with DamonDaBoss! Here’s a little recap of what happened last time. I sent out the post, people replied via email, commenting, and contacting, and I chose ONLY TWO people to join this blog’s team at that time (a little over a month ago, I believe). There are three of us now, and I announced 20 days ago that there would be more applications going on. Here’s the difference between now and then. I’m willing to let as many people as I want to join NGA for this blog application, which I won’t do often, and I really think that more hard working members on this blog will equal to more revenue and publicity. It’s all about the help me help you system. If any of you want to join this great team, the process is simple. I copied my text from the last application post down below, so just read that to get the gist of things. You don’t even have to have any prior gaming experience, I just want to see eager people who are willing to post, learn, and most of all, have fun!

If any of you are reading this, please go to my contact page to talk to me, for a “blog application.” If any of you have any interest of blogging, but not necessarily full time, just let me know, I’m flexible with your schedules. All I need is for you to briefly describe why you would be a good candidate for writing on this gaming blog, and then I’ll choose the people by the end of the month (So take your time with your responses).

SO HURRY!

Time is limited, and every person who responds early on will get a more enthusiastic response from me. But, anyone has a chance of being a part of this great team!

If you don’t want to go to the contact page, simply comment down below, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks, and have a great day!

Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! Wow, that name is a lot to take in! Just refer to us as the NGA team, if that’s easier for you! Today’s post is simply an update post, so “enjoy” it the best you can!

That link right there is for a blog site called bloglovin’ (AND FOR SOME REASON IT ONLY HAS LIKE 11 OF THE 40 SOMETHING POSTS I’VE DONE ON THIS SITE!) I’m doing this post because it says that I need to add that very link in a new post on NGA to claim it as my own on their site, so I decided to do this as soon as possible, to avoid the chances of losing my claim on NiceGamingAdvice on bloglovin’.

May The Fourth Be With You! (And a post update)

may-the-fourth-yoda

Hello my fellow citizens of Earth, it is I, DamonDaBoss, with a post about Star Wars!

The other Star Wars 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 Foac2ffcdb59678919ac4b4bdf1a207bd46c15793c_hqurth [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.”


That will be all for this post’s updates! I hope you enjoyed this festive post, and if you did, please drop a like, a comment, a re-blog, or share NGA on any social medias to spread the word about this blog for more content, and more of what YOU want to see! Also, follow NiceGamingAdvice for constant updates of new posts without having to log into wordpress always. Thanks, and everyone have a great day! And, of course,

May the Fourth be with you!”

[12] Clash Royale: There’s been a few changes

-Previous Post- (In this category)

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).

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.

IMG_1077

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.

 

IMG_1079 (1)IMG_1081 (1)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 IMG_1096the 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:

  • Skeleton Amry
  • Minion Horde
  • 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, Image result for heal spellsince 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!
