Sorry for the delay between updates. It’s not you, it’s me. I should have given you the same warning that I’d be MIA just like I gave my family. I’ve been busy with a super important project that I’m working on. Super important. What could be so important? Well I decided that I was finally going to make a push for my Clash of Clans town hall 9 upgrade.

I won’t get into the exact specifics but about 17 days ago I realized I wanted my TH9 upgrade to finish 20 days from that time. That’s 3 days from now if you’re a math expert. I had to make a pretty aggressive push, by my standards, to make that happen. Spreadsheets may have been involved. I decided after jumping a tad early to TH8 that I wouldn’t jump to another TH without maxing everything and getting all of my walls to L7. Essentially I had to make at least 1 million gold a day for practically 2 weeks straight in order to get all of those necessary upgrades complete and my walls to the purple level 7s. For some, that’s not a lot of playing time but for me, that was a commitment.

I’m happy to say though that I made it ahead of schedule, all of my important upgrades are now complete and I’m just finishing up some lesser important upgrades with the TH9 upgrade scheduled to finish on time this Thursday. That puts my time spent maxing TH8 at just over 4 months. I don’t know if I’ll ever max TH9. It’s probably going to be impossible given the amount of time (and no money) that I put into the game. However I’ll happily accept a 2nd D.E. drill to make getting an Archer Queen a tad easier and I’ll love looking at a couple X-bows sitting in the middle of my base, piecing up attackers. Mongolians! Stay away from my city wall!
