Time is a major factor in vp pushing. I wouldn’t expect you to go much higher without more time, ice & protos. Others you see at full offense at higher vp levels once had ice. It’s so much easier to maintain a high level after you remove ice. My account was around 1450 a few months ago when I was statue swapping ice & reds daily and I’m still hanging out in the 1300 range. This account hasn’t had IT for about a year now but still finding it fairly easy to maintain with no ice. Just replaced 2 th with gbe for ops which wasn’t a good idea for increasing my vp. But if you are pressed for time statue swapping won’t work.

Enjoy the ride as long as it’s fun! Hoping our paths cross again soon. 😊

Thanks Whirlwind, aiming for 1400 once I have time, reckon it might just be possible without ice and prototypes. Kicking myself for not having time during this shieldless period but I need more practice on iced shield bases not shieldless ones. My operations have improved markedly but still at mambo level unboosted. Practice, practice, practice for me then Warships will come out and I won’t know a thing again🤪

Cycle ending 17 mar 2019

1308vp, 531 no boost, no ice, no protos, (100 local, 3217 global), 2134pp, 9021 shards), 2600 protoparts, rzcm ur and hz t, no tribe boosts.

Forgot to update the last entry. Joined a new task force to try and learn from better players. Certainly being inspired and sharing hits and doing ops with new people has greatly increased my enjoyment of the game. Not trying to increase my vp as I mentioned before but rather trying new things and trying to git good 🙂

My original goal in the game was to play until Xmas and support family/friends members in my original task force as they played the game. Two xmas’s later I am still here.
My next goal was to get onto my local leaderboard and probably stop there as vp pushing (and the intel grind) is very time consuming.
My next goal is just enjoying the game and getting to 1500vp (depending on Warships ofc).
I won’t get to 1500 until I get better so that is my immediate goal. I do think boosting and dropping ice could get me so far to 1500 (well duh 🤪) but I am not in a rush just now. I will hang around 1300 for a while then when I am happier with my skills will give myself a wee push.

Didn’t take any of the tribes last cycle as they were a waste of raw crystals and I didn’t want to spend anything on them even if I was sort of wasting resources as a result. These tribes should invigorate and excite players, those didn’t.

Cycle ending 31 mar 2019

1314vp, 531 no boost, no ice, no protos, (94local, 3077 global), 2218pp, 9387 shards), 2674protoparts, rzcm ur and hz t, Medic healing, rifleman speed, gold reward.

Wow what a difference a cycle makes, so much fun and experimenting. We had some great tribes 👍👍👍 and 90% off all troops for ages which made for the most fun 🎉🎉🎉 Well done Supercell 🙂

I had real life commitments all through this cycle which restricted my play time quite a bit so my vp didn’t change much but I got to try out alternative hits which was invaluable.

We also had the remote hack which made every base a walkover. Leaderboard vp pushers seem to have hated it but it made no negative difference to me since my base is a walkover anyway 🤪

I listed my troops as rzcm and hz which was most common but really it was everything...except scorchers. Looking back I didn’t use them even once which is odd but they don’t feature in my normal game play either. I think their randomness just doesn’t appeal to me.

My op hits have much improved this cycle too, building confidence to try stuff and pretty much executing what I thought but I have had some face palm fails. Being in a task force of players that are better than you has really helped my game and I recommend it for anyone.

Cycle ending 16 mar 2019

1300vp, 531 no boost, no ice, no protos, ??? local, ??? global, ??? pp, ??? shards, ??? protoparts, hz t and rzcm ur, zooka damage

Wow what great tribes we had and coupled with 90% off troops I had a blast. I went shooting up the vp and had some fun operation hits. The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that my vp has dropped... illness right at the end of the cycle meant I lost all the vp I spent the cycle gaining and then some. Still not right hence slow and short posting of stuff on the forum like this etc

Hopefully will update this soon.
