Lvl 300 Player Reveals his 30K Daily Troop Donation

  • Mar 05, 2015 (33 months ago)


    How Does Brandon Do It?


    Today we are bringing something new to you that we haven't done yet here on CoCB. We were given a very awesome opportunity to do an interview with a very predominant player in Clash of Clans. His dedication and insane amount of hours devoted to our ever so loved Clash of Clans has enabled him to push to the top of the leader boards. Read on to hear how he accomplished such a massive feat!



    Neggs: Tell us a little bit about yourself? Do you do anything outside of Clash of Clans?

    Brandon: I live in Singapore and just finished my 2 years military service for my country 4 months ago. Currently working my career in the Insurance industry. Yes I do, basically a normal person's life with just an additional game to accompany me anywhere i go.

    Neggs: What other games did you play prior to Clash of Clans?

    Brandon: I played many other console games such as Final Fantasy VIII-XIII, God of War, Kingdom Hearts, and other various games, though I play RPGs most of the time. I would say the game that I was playing really hardcore before Clash was MapleSEA (which is the SouthEastAsia version of MapleStory) which I played and was the top in that game.

    Neggs: Are you playing any other games at the moment?

    Brandon: At this point of time, no. But I'm waiting for some games to be released, such as Final Fantasy 15.

    Neggs: What was your main motivating factor in grinding to the max level?

    Brandon: Let's talk about how I started with even leveling. When I was level 185, I saw my good friend/clashmate, Silky Ng from UnderEarth, being at a rather high level and we do meet up in real life to clash together with our local top clashers. So at that point of time, Silky was level 220+ and he kept talking about his level. So then I decided to join his clan to donate for awhile to see how it was like to do some donations. After 2 days, I was hooked to leveling.



    Neggs: How many troops do you donate on a daily basis?

    Brandon: With 6 barracks boosting only, gets me around 30-40k donations per day. With 6 barracks boosting+instant of troops, gets me around 80-120k donations per day. (Max I've done in a day is 130k)

    Neggs: How long did it take you to reach level 300?

    Brandon: I started playing Clash on the 28th March 2013, just playing it normally as how others do. I only started doing my leveling in Oct 2014, when I was level 185, and eventaully reaching level 300 on the 11th Feb 2015, so it's around 5 months, however during that 5 months, I was overseas for roughly 2 months on vacation with my family from Nov-Dec 2014.



    Neggs: You're over 4,000 trophies and your clan seems to rank very competitively. Is that currently your main motivating factor in playing Clash of Clans?

    Brandon: I have been to 4,000 trophies 4 times before, so I don't think that is the motivation factor for me. As for my clanmates, I would say they are the ones causing my Clash experience to be more fruitful as I do meet up with them in real life to Clash together and also talk about other personal stuff which in a way has allowed me to make great friends. All I can say is, if Clash isn't this popular with a good community, many people would have quit the game.

    Neggs: So how did you do it? Upon upgrading all structures to the max level you should be around level 104, so how did you get to such a high level while everyone else is so much below you? What is your secret?

    Brandon: (On a side note, I'm rather impressed that you guys know that one should be around level 104 if he/she were to gem up a max base. Wikia has the details, so I know it's right and also one of my clanmates did it, lol. Back to the question)
    Yes, it's right to say that one should be around level 104 if he/she were to gem up a max th10 base. If you check my profile, I've got around 56k Attacks Won for my Conqueror, which contributes to the exp. However, the main contribution of exp would come from my donations which I get it from clan hopping, which is essentially going around to random clans to donate troops (Barb, Minions & Giants). Would be good to watch my donation in action as I explain it as it will be clearer to see it, so do check out my video where I explain how I donate to gain exp.Click Here to View My Donating YouTube Video

    Neggs: As the game has gone on there have been several ways in which high level players stayed on top. Could you name a few interesting mechanics that people used to maintain a high ranking or perhaps not lose ranking?

    Brandon: I've heard of people using some sort of program on their devices to stay online. I think the most interesting method I've heard is to place an orange on the screen and it will cause the screen to shake, allowing them to stay online. Also, I've heard of people taping a stylus to a fan and let the fan spin at low speed to let the stylus touch the device to stay online. I'm honestly quite amazed by the extend people go to play Clash, haha.

    Neggs: Do you have an arch-nemesis? A player that whenever you see them in the base rotation you attack him, destroy his manliness and take all his loot? Does anyone come to mind?

    Brandon: Actually, no. Clash is a game where you attack anyone, and when I mean anyone, I really do mean anyone, even if it's clanmates, provided I'm searching for a raid outside of my own clan, and I have attacked some of my clanmates before.

    Neggs: What things do you want to see added to Clash of Clans in the future?

    Brandon: A bigger village area. A new league (Legend league, 3800+ trophies). A new defense as the Inferno Towers have been out since May 2013 and no new defense has been added since. Daily achievements where people are able to get gems as rewards. A new chat system where people are able to private message a particular person. A new chat system where people will be able to chat with people of the same leagues. Achievement Leaderboard so that people can look forward to something else to push their way up instead of just using trophies as the only form of Leaderboard.

    Neggs: What is your favorite troop on offense and why?

    Brandon: Archer Queen. She is the strongest troop in the game especially when she uses her ability.

    Neggs:What is your favorite troop on defense and why?

    Brandon: Archer. I usually use 35 archers in my clan castle when I go for defense in high champions league. The way it works is to have the archers exiting the CC in different directions cause the opponents' troops to go haywire especially their heros.

    Neggs: How often do you attack other players?

    Brandon: (Do u mean at high champs? or last time when i was farming? I will answer both. u may choose which u r referring to)
    Currently at 4400+ trophies, it takes around 30mins-4hrs to find a base to attack. I usually attack bases with 7 trophies or more for now. Sometimes it even takes 30mins for a base to appear, and usually it's a 1 trophy offer base.

    When I was farming last time, I was boosting my barracks while I cooked Barch army, which made me do a raid once every 3-5mins, depending on how many troops I used in my previous raid.



    Neggs: Tell us about your clan. They are extremely competitive and have some of the best players in the game. What main factors would you attribute their success to?

    Brandon: My clan, MegaEmpireAsia is part of our main family clan, MEGA EMPIRE. We have many family clans such as Megacity, Mega Empire Uae, Megatown, Mega Empire-X, Mega Stoney, Megafarm, Mega Academy, Mega Turks, Mega Mutiny, Mege Sabah, MegaUSA, MegaHighlanders, MegaAus and also a few in Chinese characters. I'm just part of their family as a high trophy pusher, contributing my Clash knowledge and clan points to them.

    Neggs: What would you say to all those other Clash of Clans trying to make a name for themselves by grinding out levels or obtaining high cup counts?

    Brandon: All the best in whatever you do, don't give up, treat it like a marathon or shall I say a Clashathon. Different people have different ways of playing a game, if you choose to farm your base without gems, it's a good choice, but if you wish to spend money to buy gems to progress faster, it's a good choice too. Most importantly will be for you to be happy with your decision and not let others dictate your Clashing experience. Clash On!

    Neggs: Would you like to shout out to any players, friends or foes?

    Brandon: Just wanna shout out for my clan and alliance namely: MegaEmpireAsia, MEGA EMPIRE, Megacity, Mega Empire Uae, Megatown, Mega Empire-X, Mega Stoney, Megafarm, Mega Academy, Mega Turks, Mega Mutiny, Mege Sabah, MegaUSA, MegaHighlanders, MegaAus, Sg Gladiators (My Farming Clan). Will be a super long list if I carry on naming, but I'm pretty sure those not mentioned especially my close clanmates, will know that it will be to too crazy to mention all.

    when people do pushing like this it exposes shortcuts and limits in the game, when brandon reached lvl300 we all discovered that that was the limit, you could not get any highe, so they had to fix that, i recon there was also a limit of 5000 trophies so they fixed that when it looked like someone would reach it
