    I posted about this a few months ago. If I recall correctly Darian said they want there to be a choice or a cost to upgrading Royals. I think it's a mistake to take them out of action while upgrading BUT, I've never developed a billion dollar game so I may not know what I'm talking about. I'll admit it.

    But, I think this is the problem. What you mentioned about uninstalling. I didn't, never considered it. However, not long ago I did get irritated enough to install another game just after putting Royals down on several bases. I didn't want to raid. But, I wanted something else to do. So, I tried another game. Is SC in danger of losing me? No. But others? I think so. Yes. I'm sure they have considered it and all the other factors they need to consider including sales. Sales are important and I get that. They would be important to me if it were my game. But, as a player I see it as a problem. I suspect they have given this MUCH thought and it won't be changing.

    I don't see it as a choice. If I can upgrade the most important item in the game. I'm going to upgrade it. However, I will tend to only do it when I have a book where the AQ is involved. Mine are closing in on max though. So I have the luxury of that more than a new player. Mine won't likely be closing in on max in about a month though. I'm not going any where. Others?

    I think there are many reasons for people playing an additional game, and they most likely do..
    I guess you are like me.. Only the one game at a time..
    But I guess people will continue to play, or one day will get bored and move on..

    There are many mentions of people taking a break, then coming back when they are ready.. Probably this is why we have all those dead bases.. They dont squash them, so folk have something to come back to..

    Those long upgrades are a bind.. But I dont push, so simply need them to war..
    Things arent unbearable with the casual approach I have.

    Absolutely. I noticed that obstacles, gem boxes and events allowed me to buy a book from the trader maybe once a month. Clan games, CWL provided another few books with rewards or hammers and the ive also taken 2 gold passes (google opinion rewards paid for that).

    Not had my heroes out of action for months and I'm able to be perma green (Wife permitting). Queen is now maxed, king and GW not far behind. My only issue is burning dark when its full but raiding with dark heavy war comps helps to build elixir.

    I rarely buy one from the trader but I've usually get at least two and usually four a month. I raid 2 to 6 hours a day on most days so I get loot fast. I get one from clan games often, one or two from seasonal challenges with gold pass, and from time to time they are cheap in the shop. I might get them from there too. The trader, not too much. My gems usually go toward boosting barracks. I sometimes run out of training potion. I don't like to raid without those either but I will.

    My Royals go down a LOT. On my formly rushed 12, had my AQ upgrading for the last 3 days. She's still got 2.5 to go. I was overstocked on training potions due to the gold pass so I raided anyway so I could claim the five sitting in my seasonal rewards. I don't usually use ED because they take so long to cook but with the 30 percent troop boost from seasonal challenges and the training potions it was pretty quick. Not using any dark at all. Ended up with my BK upgrading now too. So both are down. I won't be raiding there for the next 2.5 days. Though with ED the royals are not super important for looting. I could but I won't.

    That base also has it's mortar in gear up so the builder base is without a builder for 12 days. Just before clan games is bad timing on that. But, I need the sixth builder. I've had five down a lot.

    My main has had all six builders down for the last several days so I have not raided with it in three days. I have three builder free tomorrow. So back to the main.

    I have always upgraded a hero when ever I had the resources to do so, and if you farm enough to overlap upgrade times, the end game is that much closer.

    Up until books there was no other way to do it, other then straight up gems, some people seem to forget that yes you can raid without hero's, just need to find the sweet spot league for your play style and time available.

    I always upgrade queen first. Always. Everything I have goes towards her until she’s of age, books, gems, medals, etc. I’ve never regretted it. Warden runs on a different resource and I don’t have problems farming so keeping other things upgrading and lab going is pretty easy especially if you are waiting out your queen upgrades.

    j/k the autocorrect made me, well, giggle. Back to the topic:

    Right now, I'm not sure how I will approach this. I prefer to have my heroes up, which means I sink books and hammers into them whenever I can. I'm also in legends, and I'm not sure how feasible staying there is without heroes. So, I will either: (a) upgrade heroes only using books/hammers, slowing my hero progression, but staying in legends, or (b) upgrade heroes whenever I have loot (using books/hammers when available), and dropping from legends, as heroes will be down from time-to-time.

    I always UG my AQ to max first and use my BoH on her only until she's amxed. Having said that, I do not use a lot of gems or spend money on this game, so whenever my heroes are not maxed, I just sit out of wars for months until they are. I stay down in Crystal hitting dead bases and ug all 3 of my heroes simultaneously. It's a giant PITA but since I don't spend a money on gems, it's the most efficient way for me to do it. Sucks to be out of war for months but once the grind is over, it's mostly over all at once.
    Someone else may have another idea, but that's how I'd do it™

    Sorry ,the uninstall was more just an exaggerated joke. Just showing how much I hate having my queen down
