Do MORE builders equal MORE fun?

Check out the answer from Supercell:

Boom’s build times were designed and balanced around the concept of building one thing at a time, and changing this now would upset the game’s delicate balance. Therefore we won’t be adding more builders.

FYI: 2 days, 12 hours is the longest building upgrade time (HQ to Level 20) – and 5 days, 10 hours is the longest troop upgrade time (max level Tank).

Also, contrary to popular belief, more builders do not equate to more fun! You can clearly see this in our super-scientific graph here:

note: this graph is not, in fact, “super-scientific”, but is actually a bit silly… 


We decided to take the experiment to its natural conclusion and see what happens to the fun when you have over 9000builders!

This is where it gets really interesting – the fun levels actually take a sharp dive when you reach over 9000 builders:

So more builders definitely do not equal more fun! The proof is in this pudding.

note: this graph is also quite silly.

  1. Supercell is dumb here. According to the graph THEY made, the level of fun stays the same no matter how many builders you have… until you get over 9,000 anyways.

    And we all know it’s all about the money. 1 builder means you have to buy more gems and pay actual money to get them. Because even in CoC, there are top level players that only have 2 or 3 builders. Why? Because they put in the time and waited for things to build.

    As a culture, we just don’t have patience anymore. I just Supercell would be honest about the fact that they want you to buy diamonds, and stop insulting me with these lies about the “delicate balance” of the game. Builders don’t throw off the balance… defense and attack points throw off the delicate balance, not builders. Builders never threw off any balance in CoC either. It’s still a well balanced game whether you have 2 or 5 builders.
