Why do people waste too much time on Clash of Clans

  • 1 Troops get ready in short intervals

    In Clash of Clans, troops take time to get prepared. This time is usually around 30 minutes. This forces many players to come back to the game to make an attack every now and then.

  • 2 Upgrades are almost endless

    While the game has a maximum upgrade level for everything, it still requires an extremely long amount of time to get all of those upgrades done. It's not abnormal for a person to spend years building a base in Clash of Clans.

  • 3 You need billions of resources

    You literately need billions of resources to max out the base's upgrades. Collecting those resources requires having to fight endless battles. Players thus waste most of their time fighting those battles to collect resources. See why Clash of Clans is so addictive.

  • 4 Too many things are happening

    In Clash of Clans, too many things can take place in a given day and thus the player will always find something to bring them back to the game.

  • 5 The game has two bases

    Supercell has added another base to the game. This means that the player will have to manage two bases at the same time. This forces players to return to the game more often.

  • 6 You can attack twice

    Supercell has changed the game in such a way that the player can make two attacks before they need to create a new army. The double attack features motivates players to spend more time making attacks.

  • 7 The game is extremely addictive

    Clash of Clans was designed in such a way that it makes people extremely addicted to it. The game targets people's strong emotions such as frustration and impatience to force them to keep coming back. See why Clash of Clans is bad.

  • 8 Time investment leads to more commitment

    The more a player spends time building a base, the more they will feel like coming back. The long time spent on the game makes people more committed to their bases.

  • 9 Too many notifications

    With so many things happening, you get a lot of notifications from the game. This is also another reason people keep coming back.
