Thread: Bring back the 3:30 timer!

    Bring back the 3:30 timer!

    I really wanted to make the title BRING BACK THE 3:30 TIMER!!!!!! but didn't want to yell right away.

    Seriously, the thrill of getting a 3 star is what war is all about. Missing out because of a time limit is so infuriating. This is targeted at the every day casual-serious player. Yep, if you nail your attack the 3 minute timer is plenty and you'll swag a heal, queen ability and have a ton of troops left. If you do that consistently then great! Congratulations, go join one of the elite clans and kick some butt.

    Now back to most players. I don't have a youtube channel, I don't spend all day clashing, I don't have 3 hours to plan a war attack. But I like the game, I like war and I'm reasonably skilled. So it feels like a punishment to have a really good attack with a mistake here and there that would've been a 3 star except for the timer. Maybe leave the elite players their 3 minute timer to separate the elite from the near-elite but give the rest of us commoners some extra time.

    How about waiting what the next update brings with all new "super" troops.

    Let me list of the many reasons why we SHOULDN'T:

    1. TH 11 was chaos due to 3:30 timer.
    2. Super Troops.
    3. Super Troops.
    4. Super Troops.
    5. Super Troops.
    6. Balance Changes.
    7. Now there are enough heroes for all 4 corners of the map.
    8. Siege Machines.
    9. Super Troops can be donated.
    10. Super Troops can be donated.
    11. Super Troops can be donated.
    12. Super Troops can be donated.
    13. Cannon Nerf.
    14. New Troop and Spell levels > Defense nerfs and new levels.
    15. Due to how OP troops get, you can destroy the town hall in ~30 seconds in almost any base.

    I understand the frustration for sure! I do believe the game goes through it’s cycles of balancing offense and defense. I think there are better ways to compensate instead of having more time during the attacks. I personally believe that it is already difficult to have successful defense and the timer is a nice final straw that peeps have to get through.

    This is historical, but ...

    Disagree with 1. TH 11 was chaos due to 3:30 timer. That one thing was good. When they took away the 3:30 timer, TH11 became too hard.

    The real answer is: 8. Siege Machines.
    Siege engines let you make a big fast assault on the toughest base.

    Do you have siege engines yet?

    I think the worst complaint about 3:30 was the queenwalk being too dominant.

    I think the time is good, if you can't beat the base in 3 minutes, its unlikely you can at all.

    No, then it would simply be too easy, too many 3 stars.
