Why Boom Beach is Superior over Clash of Clans

Why Boom Beach is Superior over Clash of Clans

YouTube,. ‘Clash Of Clans Vs Boom Beach (Android Ios)’. N.p., 2015. Web. 27 May 2015.

Clash of Clans and Boom Beach are two of Supercell’s most popular games on the Android and IOS. Clash of Clans is a freemium MMO (massively multiplayer online) which was made in 2012 by Supercell. While Boom Beach is a freemium mobile strategy game which was made in 2013 by Supercell. In my opinion there is no contest between both games because its obvious Boom Beach is the better of the two. The whole point of both games is to make a base powerful enough that other players can’t destroy your town hall (for Clash of Clans) or your head quarters (Boom Beach). You fill your base with resources so you have enough money to buy things and defensive weapons so you can protect your base from other players during an attack. You can also train and level up troops so you can attack other people’s bases or play campaign mode where you deal with goblins (in Clash of Clans) or the Blackguard (Boom Beach). Clash of Clans has more medieval and mystical like setting with characters units such as Barbarians, Archers, Giants, and Dragons. On the other hand Boom Beach has more modern military like setting with units like Rifleman, Bazookas, Heavies, and Doctors. Now that I have given you a general Idea of both games now I’m going to show you why Boom Beach is better than Clash of Clans.

Boom Beach Has Shorter Build Times

The time to upgrade resources, building, and defensive weapons is so long in Clash of Clans that I want to rip out the small amount of hair I have left. Seriously the time for some of these buildings take forever, it takes two weeks to make a level ten town hall that’s ridiculous. The only upside to having these buildings take a long time to make is that they are multiple builders so you can work on upgrading buildings, defences, and resources. The beautiful thing about boom beach is that building times are a lot faster. I have been playing Boom Beach for about 3 weeks now and I’m at a level 6 Headquarters, it took me almost a year to get to town hall 8. This is because the time difference between upgrades for levels of resources, defences, and building is really short in Boo Beach compared to Clash of Clans.

Boom Beach has Better Unit Management/ Attacks

When I played Clash of Clans I felt like the invasions on other peoples bases were a joke now that I look back. Let’s say you want to invade someone’s base for resources you must first train troops for the assault. Also you have army camps to store your troops. I personally don’t have a major problem with the training process but compared to Boom Beach it’s slow and inefficient. In Boom Beach instead of army camps you have landing crafts to store troops for battle. Also replacing units in battle is very quick because you have the option to replace units you have lost in battle. The training costs are cheaper in Boom Beach. Furthermore, you can only hold one type of unit in each landing craft, I found that to be amazing because you can use a wide variety of troops in battle but in Clash of Clans I mostly see people spam one type of troop like Barbarians and Archers. The battles in Clash of Clans compared to Boom Beach like I mentioned earlier are a joke and here is why. In Clash of Clans you just put where your troops one to go then let nature take its course. There is next to no strategy in my opinion because after you put your troops into battle they have a mind of their own and they go and destroy who they please. On the other hand, in Boom Beach you have a weapon called the gunboat you can use before raiding someone’s base. I personally like this weapon because you get three missile with your gunboat and you can potentially destroy at least one defence son that’s were strategy comes into play. Also you have flares so you can actually direct your troops to the direction where they want to go.

Boom Beach Has No walls/ Other Benefits

The one thing that wants to make me rip my hair out more than building times are purchasing and placing walls in Clash of Clans. Walls are basically highway robbery because as you level up walls become expenses. At max level one wall part cost 4,000,000 gold which is half of the maximum capacity of gold you can have in the game. It gets worse the maximum amount of wall parts you can have is 250 which I find absurd. Boom Beach has no walls and the closest thing to it are mines which are really cheap. To add there are other benefits to Boom Beach they include:

  • When your base is invaded in Clash of Clans and they succeed in destroying your town hall you will lose part of your resources but, in Boom Beach you won’t and you gain diamonds (a form of currency in Boom Beach that helps you speed up building time and training troops) on the amount of troops you killed
  • The matchmaking for invading bases for Boom Beach is more balanced in Clash of Clans because if you fail unlike in Clash of Clans you have the option to try again until you win. Furthermore, you have the option to pick the opponents you want in Boom Beach but in Clash you got to keep going through random bases until you find one you think you can beat.
  • Boom Beach has a better campaign than Clash of Clans

 

I hoped you like my post please comment below to share your thoughts on both games and to tell me anything I didn’t mention. Below there is a video of a Boom Beach advertisement that inspired me to play the game hope you guys like it. Now Back to Boom Beach!

 

Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Song Analysis

Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Song Analysis

Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet is the most cheerful part of the play. This Act includes the famous balcony scene where Romeo and Juliet confess their love for each other and decide to get married. Romeo then arranges plans with Friar Lawrence and the nurse tells Juliet to meet him at the chapel. This act also includes the famous lines that make Romeo and Juliet still well known to this day

“But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.
Be not her maid since she is envious.
Her vestal livery is but sick and green,
And none but fools do wear it. Cast it off.
It is my lady. O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!”
(2.2.2-11)

Now I want to compare two modern day songs “Love Story” by Taylor Swift and “Closer” by Ne-Yo. I want to see which one better represents Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet.

 

Love Story

To start, “Love Story”, by Taylor Swift was clearly inspired by Romeo and Juliet and includes a lot of elements of the play in that song. The song lyrics reference Romeo and Juliet and so does the imagery display. The imaginary flashback takes place in 14th century Verona with the costumes and the setting resembling Romeo and Juliet in a high degree. Also the song is sung in Juliet’s perspective mostly then changing to Romeo’s perspective in some parts of the song.

The lyrics have a great connection to Romeo and Juliet.

“See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd
And say hello little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said, “Stay away from Juliet”
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, please, don’t go”

The similarities is that it resembles the Capulet party and both Romeo and Juliet’s parents are against them being together. The key differences between the lyrics and the play are in the lyrics where Juliet’s father tells Romeo to “Stay away from Juliet,” Capulet never told Romeo in the play to stay away from Juliet. Also she never goes to cry in a staircase.

“So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet ’cause we’re dead if they knew”

The similarity to the play is that during the balcony scene Juliet feared for Romeo’s life because if they were caught Capulet would probably have Romeo killed. The difference is they never snuck into a garden together, Romeo came by himself and startled Juliet

.“Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
I love you and that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It’s a love story, baby just say yes”

These lyrics resembled the play very well because Romeo and Juliet shared their love for each other during the balcony scene. They decided to get married so the play Romeo and Juliet is at heart a love story.

“Love Story” by Taylor Swift is the best representation of Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet. Now lets move on to the next song “Closer” by Ne-Yo and see how the song relates to Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare.

 

Closer

“Closer” by Ne-Yo isn’t something to get excited about. The song has almost no connection to Romeo and Juliet and the lyrics are very repetitive.

“I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
And I just can’t break myself no way
But I don’t want to escape
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop
I just can’t stop

I can feel her on my skin
I can taste her on my tongue
She’s the sweetest taste of sin
The more I get the more I want
She wants to own me
Come closer
She says “come closer”

The only thing relevant to these lyrics are that this is a connection to the feelings Romeo has to Juliet like how he can’t stop being with her. Then the rest of lyrics sound sexual rather than them being romantic.

“She’s the sweetest taste of sin”

In the play Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is considered a sin by their families but Ne-Yo probably put that in a different context.

 

Verdict
In summary “’Love Story” by Taylor Swift better represents Romeo and Juliet by using moments from the play, their lyrics, and their imagery display. They also incorporate the balcony scene and the ideas of running away and getting married. “Closer” by Ne-Yo has lyrics that show Romeo’s strong desire for Juliet but in the end its basically a sexual song.

The Jiblog Post

The Jiblog Post

Introduction

There are a variety of news stories on the internet that interested me when I researching news stories through sports, technology, music, and many more. This story I heard in Business class  today really interested me and I wanted to learn more about it and share it on my blog.

Barcelona school killing

Students, believed to be from the same classroom where a teacher was killed, leave the school

Facts

A 13 year old boy in Barcelona Spain, killed a substitute teacher and wounded 4 other students at his high school. The boy was armed with both a crossbow and a machete. He was taken into custody by police soon after the attack and they did not release the name of the boy. The police of Barcelona said that the boy had no motive for murder.

Joe Miguel Company, spokesman for the Barcelona prosecutor’s office quoted, “He was very disturbed and saying strange incoherent things.”

Those who were injured by the boy were expected to survive. But, criminal charges cannot be filed against the boy since he is under 14 (Under Spanish law, criminal charges cannot be filed against a suspect under the age of 14). But, he will be evaluated by both a judge and a mental health profession so he will either be sent to a mental hospital or juvenile detention hall.

Opinion

This story raised a lot of questions for me I’m going to list the 2 big ones I had,

  • How did nobody at the school notice he had such dangerous weapons at his possession?
  • Will the school increase it security and make any major changes to protect the students and teachers?

My overall opinion of this story is that the boy should be sent to a mental hospital because no sane person would commit those sort of actions. Also the Spanish government should consider laws of accessing fire arms like a crossbow. I also think the person who provided the boy with the weapon was extremely careless and should change his or her policy on selling weapons.

 

 

Conclusion

I want you guys to tell me your opinion on the story and address any facts or questions that you want to tell me that relates to this post.
