  • How Do You Play the Game : Three Fingers Droppers, Two Hands Users, Anyone?

    I've been long told to use 3 fingers to drop bunch of troops more effectively and also use 2 hands to play, but I just couldn't! Not that I haven't practiced 😆
    I usually only use my right hand, drop troops using 1 finger, pan and magnify also using the same hand (right hand). Left hand is used only to hold my 6" phone.
    My other difficulties to use 3 fingers are : smaller hands and also longer nails.

    ​​​​​How do you guys play the game, hardware wise? Is it single handed, 1 finger - 3 finger dropper, else?
    Any tips for more efficient gameplay?

    2 hands, 3 fingers on my current smartphone (xiaomi note 5).
    2 hands 4 fingers on my previous smartphone (oneplus X).

    The difference is massive between using 1 finger and 2hands/3 fingers. It takes no more than 7 secs to have all my troops deployed. Hitting hard the enemy base right from the start. I even recorded myself doing that and uploaded to line for my alliance members to see and learn.

    You should master that technique. Everyone should do that

    P.S. check the first secs of this attack....I recorded it live while playing...see how all the troops get deployed...

      Those attack helos on the corner? I would assume the range when we used 3 fingers would be a little farther, never figured it would have been done in corner drops, looks nice and very easy (just couldn't understand why so hard for me 😑) Think I will start doing 2 fingers before I practice 3 fingers again

      OOT, but are XNote 5's cameras good wrathchild_78? 😅 Are yours pro or regular version? I'm looking for 2 front camera phone with better ram, mine Asus Zenfone 5Q has double front camera 20MP but it only has 4GB ram, I know Note 5 has the 6GB ram version.

    if 1 hand 3 fingers is difficult for you try 1 hand 2 fingers. still twice as fast as 1 finger

      Play on a mobile phone, drop demolition using 2 hands. Use one hand 2 fingers to speed drop troops. The key is start with one finger once that's start dropping troops keep it there and add your other finger(s) and they will be deployed very fast.

        I am practicing 2 fingers now. Any tips to make the left (other) hand more efficient?

          0. you turn the smartphone a bit sideways (say 30 degrees).
          1. tap on rally icon.
          2. use 2 fingers from your left hand and tap on the spot you want your army to deploy and keep them there.
          3. use one finger from your right hand and start selecting your troops one by one. Each time something is deployed quickly go to the next.
          4. Job done
          I would upload the training video for troop deployment but you wouldn't understand a thing. It's in greek.

            Think to set the drop points without dropping any troops. Think the rally will not be activated because there are no troops. Working so unable to test myself.

            Lol ok Berend_War that's the most senseful thought. I'm gonna try in Campaign 😄

            exactly what Berend said. No accidental dropping and you set drop points correctly. Smartphones can sometimes behave weird with the touch screen

          2 hands? Really? I never realised the game is that difficult that it requires two hands!
          2-4 fingers to deploy or alternately slide finger(s) left-to-right to deploy.
          From then onwards I've found 1-2 fingers will suffice.

          Pro tip for quicker deployment: bite your nails.

            How do you magnify and pan then Manifesto ? With the same hand to control troops? Some people manage to use the other hand to pan, magnify, and probably do other things. I assume it could ease gameplay.

            ​​​​​​​I bite my nails but they keep growing 😉

              My other hand is usually busy holding my drink.

            Did have a few tries on the rally point drops like suggested by Wrathchild. But wasn't really successful. Must say playing on a mobile phone and the drop points where invalid according to the game ;-). Will try some more soon.

              yes it is perfectly normal. Do it like 10 times in a row and you will be fine.

                It didn't work wrathchild_78 😭 the rally stuff. It's probably depending on our touch screen/handset?

                  it shouldn't...tap on rally, place 2 fingers on the desired spot, with the other hand tap alternatively the troops. That is all. Practice again!

                2 hands and ideally you don't have a device with a defective touch screen or by now you know your device well enough that it requires less more pressure. Of course all these methods become trickier when you're doing multiple corner/location drops than I feel like there's just more tapping involved. Usually for me, 2 hands and first dropping the generals and mercs in whatever area they go than I select my next unit (Usually apcs) and than left hand 3 finger tap the screen to drop them and once they're done than I quickly switch to next unit by selecting with right index. It's weird but it's the only consistent way I've been able to get it to work. The trick is timing of being able to select the next unit immediately because if you do it incorrectly than you have to pick up the left hand and tap screen again and you lose some time. I suggest practicing on wherever it doesn't cost anything like challenges or single player.
