Deploy Troops vs. Bribe Army Contractors

In the upcoming weeks, we’ll be working on some UX and UI improvements, with the goal to ensure our players can understand and use some features better. Let’s just give a real example of Deploy Troops feature.
According to some of our analyses, we’ve been aware that Deploy Troops feature offers a terrible experience when you get there for the first time.

In general: way too much of texts on the left and lots of different numbers on the right side that causes a complete mess in the players head. We believe we owe our players to create a way better experience on those function as we find it one of the most important features in Boot Camp. Players that haven’t experienced the value of Deploy Troops or Bribe function are not playing the best experience War Clicks can surely offer. That’s why we decided to make it clearer and that’s the result of our remake.

To give a bit more explanation behind the story of Army Contractors/ Investors and Bribe vs. Deploy mode and to ensure you understand the game and its features better…read below…

Army Contractors – are ‘’produced’’ when you progress through the Boot Camp. They don’t give you any value until you claim them. Once claimed they grant you a huge production boost, so you are progressing way faster – producing more units and so on.
Real example (based on the numbers from the picture above):
Let’s assume that you’ve claimed Army Contractors by :

using Deploy Troops mode
3.105B Army Contractors will be added to your account immediately
1.814T Production boost will be added to your current boost of 85.887M
You’ll send all of your currently produced units to War Zone where they will become a part of your Support Power and DPC
You’ll reset units, upgrades, trainers, trainer upgrades and Power points

Small Hint: Check your Gold balance and if you find enough Gold, spend it for Investors to gain additional Boosts on every Army Contractor!

– using Bribe mode –
3.105B Army Contractors will be added to your account immediately
1.814T Production boost will be added to your current boost of 85.887M
You will not reset your current progress
You will not send units to War Zone

How to progress through the Boot Camp faster?
1. Claim as many army contractors as you can
2. Increase your Boost per every Army Contractor you own

Competitions are LIVE!

On Monday, we’ve deployed an update that changes a bit how weekly competitions work to make them more engaging an fun! Shortly put, now they’ll only take into account active registered users, and their GAINS during a competition week.

Compete and collect great rewards

You will also notice that rankings widget is now separate from the competitions button, to make things more clear and easily accessible!

We are still resolving some minor display issues also considering some additional changes/ improvements to the country score competition. For more info feel free to check our previous post:

Stay tuned 😉

Competition Rework coming next Monday!

The next two months we have A LOT of important and cools updates planned for War Clicks, to improve your experience by making it more fun, engaging and smooth!

 

One of the first ones to come is related to some changes of how weekly competitions work, as there are currently some issues that keep competitions too stagnant/ boring/ results not changing and the way they are implemented also create massive implementation and performance issues on the backend, that simply are not prepared for scaling of our game’s user base, especially with the growth plans we have for the future!

 

So we are making some core changes to how competitions work, to make them more attractive and resolve the scaling issues they were/are causing:

1) So far competitions were available to & rewarding all players, registered or „guests“. And as registered users tend to play more actively, a large chunk of rewards were given to „guests“ who would likely stop playing much sooner and their rewards go to waste basically (instead of more active players getting them).

 

So that is the first change we will be doing – all competitions will from the update onwards be available and rewarding ONLY registered users. (A registered user is considered someone who registered on WarClicks.com or is a logged in ArmorGames player)

 

2) Besides the Weekly Levels gained and Contractors % Increase competitions, all the rest were looking at „fixed values“ instead of what a user gained DURING the competition. This caused a huge issue, where (i.e. For score competition) top users would constantly be getting the same rewards – even if they were inactive during the competition, simply because they clung to their place during it! The idea behind weekly competitions is to stimulate and reward activity during a week, hence why we will be changing all 5 existing competition types to rank off “gain” instead of just fixed/total value.

 

  • We will be also improving the clarity of the competitions AND the “your ranking“ widget. These will now be separate buttons – competition results will now be visible fully within the game without opening a new tab for you. Much more useful to see how and where you rank! A lot more people will be paying attention to the competition results now, so make sure to customize a bad-ass character in your profile, so people remember you when they see you in the top rankings!

Customize your War Clicks’ character!

The day has come to release our latest developed feature – customized profiles!
We added some new elements of customization to the game, to give you the best playing experience.

Characterization is divided into 6 different categories: Gender & Skin, Face, Hair, Outfit, Face markings and Other. You’ll now find a lot of different possibilities to create the most cool or bad-ass character, one that you best identify with!

Set your best character

Set your best character

Customize your profile, select your face shape, define your gender, choose your skin type, pick your eye color, choose your preferred hairstyle, set your army uniform – outfit, unlock some face markings/ covers, or add some other elements…

There are already lots of elements to choose from, and we will be adding more in the future!
Not all features are available from the start, as you’ll need to reach a certain Rank to unlock some of the elements. Others (Premiums) can be purchased by Gold.

Wondering why to create your character?
*  When your opponents will be checking your profile, they’ll find your personalized character
*  To feel better/ unique as your character will be ‘watching on you’ in the top left corner of the game
