Mobile-based video games can have different genres like action, action-adventure, adventure, sports, simulation, and strategy.
Why Clash of Clans
One of the most notable mobile-based video game that took the gaming community by storm is Clash of Clans, which was developed by a Finnish game development company Supercell and was released in the year 2012. The game was released for both Android and iOS platforms. It gained huge popularity as soon as it was released and went on to become the highest grossing application in the year of its release. Clash of Clans is basically a multiplayer, strategy-based video game and the gameplay is set in an imaginary fantasy world. In the game, the player is in charge of a village and plays the role of the chief of the village. The primary task assigned to the player is, building the village from the scratch and helping it prosper and bringing about development by using several resources and defending it from enemy attacks by building defenses. The main resources are gold, elixir and dark elixir. These resources can be replenished in two ways, either by collecting them from the gold mines and elixir collectors situated in the village or by attacking and looting other villages. In the village, the most important building is the town hall, by upgrading the town hall using suitable resources a player advances in the game. Currently available town hall levels are from one to twelve. Other buildings can be categorized as:
- Resource (gold storage, elixir storage, dark elixir storage).
- Walls, that help in to strengthen the defense of the village.
- Barracks, the troops used in battle or raiding are trained in these buildings.
- Spell factory.
- Base defenses (archer tower, cannon, mortar, xbow, hidden tesla, bombs, spring traps), which are dedicated to defending the village from enemy attacks.
- Clan castle.
Use of Resources
An elixir in this game can be used in the following ways:
- Training of new troops (archers, barbarians, giants, wizards, dragons, baby dragons, p.e.k.k.a etc.) for attacking other villages.
- Research work in the laboratory to upgrade the troops.
- Reloading of x-bows that are important for the village’s defense.
- To build and upgrade specific building settings.
- For brewing certain spells (lightning spell, haste spell, rage spell etc.), that can be used to attack other villages.
Similarly, gold in this game can be used in the following ways:
- Building and upgrading defenses.
- Upgrading the town hall, which enables the players to unlock new buildings and defenses to strengthen their bases.
A player can access dark elixir at town hall level seven. Dark Elixir is used to train dark troops (golems, hog riders, minions, bowlers etc.), brew dark spells and unlock and upgrade heroes (barbarian king, archer queen etc.). The dark elixir is collected using the dark elixir drill.
A player can choose to join a clan and there they can choose to participate in the clan war, which a battle event takes place between any two clans. The clan leader or co-leader can start the clan war against any other clan, the opponent clan is chosen randomly by the Clash of Clan server. On the “preparation day,” the participants from both the clans strategies and modifies their external defense mechanisms as a prelude to the “war day”, where each participant is given two chances to attack any two of the opponent clan bases. At the end of the war based on the total number of stars won by a clan, a winner is determined and loot is credited to the clan castles of the participants of the victorious clan. In 2017, another base called the builder base was introduced to improvise the gaming experience, giving a player the opportunity of handling and managing two villages simultaneously.
- The amount of resources and number of gems available to a player that can be used to perform the tasks within the game is limited by Supercell, in order to optimize the gaming experience. However, there are ways through which these limitations can be overcome by using certain programs available. This way resources and gems that has a substantial collection time can be replenished in no time whatsoever, which enables a player to proceed with the game very fast, usually which takes a substantial amount of time. Although some might argue that this may take away from the actual gaming experience and anticipation factor.
There are many online sites available that enable a player to use the particular program and procedure in order to obtain unlimited resources and gems by using their Clash of Clans username. However, there are a very few actual sites that offer actual working programs for this purpose, as most of the websites are malicious and are designed to corrupt and crash the computers or the mobile platform used to access these sites by auto-downloading malware. The game rightfully becomes an addiction after a certain point in time because of its extremely captivating sequences and gaming inputs.

Despite the common notion that getting into real estate is an easy way to make quick money and profits, it is, in fact, a pretty risky business at times. During instances that the housing market isn’t doing well, it can be hard to make a steady income via being a real estate agent. In this article, we have explored some of the risks involved in real estate.
1: GENERAL MARKET RISK:
It is a known fact that all markets go through some highs and lows that are very unpredictable in nature. Inflation, market trends, interest rates all play a role in this. A large part of a real estate agent’s job involves taking risks and being able to keep up with the fluctuations in the market. He or she must learn to place bets based on instinct and live with the fact that they do not have a regular 9-5 job and hence not a steady and consistent paycheck.
2: CLIENT LAWSUITS:Suppose you introduce a new client to property placed in a fabulous neighborhood, the value of which has a definite chance of going up over the years. If you thus, sell your client the property stating its value will go up over time and this does not, in fact, deem true and the property value stalls, there is every chance the client will file a lawsuit and sue you for making false statements.
3: CLIENT INJURIES:
An open house can be very chaotic what with a large number of families walking in and out and examining every corner. There can be many things around the house that are out of order and can easily hurt anyone. An agent simply cannot have his eye trail every corner and if someone does end up getting injured on his or her watch, the agent can be sued. However, such lawsuits are fortunately covered by the general liability insurance.
4: VIOLATION OF YOUR CODE OF ETHICS:
If an agent violates his or her code of ethics or professional standards they can be sued by the client. For instance, if they fail to mention important details about the property at hand, purposefully or otherwise, like for instance, that it is located in a noisy neighbourhood; the client could consider this a huge mistake on his or her part and file a lawsuit against the agent. Thus, it is important that the agent stay very upfront and open with the client and remember to disclose all details regarding the property to them beforehand.
