Recently, Clash of Kings developed by Elex has surpassed market sales champions Clash of Clans and Game of War. It is a strategy mobile game that was launched around a year ago and right now it’s quite surprising to see that this newcomer has taken over both of the top spots, replacing the long-time popular Clash of Clans and Game of War.
Both of these games have comfortably held their top positions in Google Play and App Store for quite a long time. Games which are featured on the top grossing charts of Google Play and App Store are chosen in terms of effective tracking of customer purchases in real-time along with their revenue intake.
Clash of Clans is currently available as a free download but players can purchase many in-game perks by making use of real cash. This, in turn, drives its popularity and offers it a quick rise in store rankings. Clash of Kings has secured the 1st spot on both App Store and Google Play when compared to that of Clash of Clans and Clash of Kings.
However, it has a low rank on Top Free charts, securing 135th on Google Play and 128th on App Store. As a result, it seems like a particular portion of users are demonstrating a greater-than-average ARPU. If the game reaches a ranking of No.10 in the Top Free Charts, things could get really interesting.
This game was launched 12 months ago in Google Play and around 7 months back in the App Store. Statistics indicate that this franchise was downloaded more than 50 million times worldwide, since then. Furthermore, Clash of Kings has been ranked in the top 5 grossing apps on App Store and the Google Play in 20 and 70 countries respectively.
In the meantime, the biggest Clash of Clans tournament to be held in Philippines is offering around 2 million in prize money. Nationwide Online Registration for the Philippine Clash 2015 has been started by Wireless Services Leader Smart Communications Inc.
(Smart), the mobile subsidiary of PLDT. Philippine Clash Tournament 2015 is the biggest Clash of Clans tournament so far and it covers five different regions with 2 million worth of prizes. Till date, this is the largest prize pool offered in a local gaming competition. The last successful Clash of Clan tournament was Clash of Summer and this was the country’s first COC tournament, held in Taguig City in last May.
This tournament was also supported by Smart and the company is presently thrilled to open the official registration for Philippine Clash 2015. Right now, the nationwide search for the country’s topmost COC team has been started, according to Mellissa Limcaoco, head of Smart’s Innovation and Product Development Group.
She further declared that this will be the perfect venue for COC fans and gamers to come face to face and take part in a friendly but a serious competition where gamers will surely learn new strategies from each other.
Philippine eSports Organization, Inquirer eSports, SM Cyberzone have teamed up with Smart in order to make this possible. They have also been joined by Philippine Clash of Clans Battleground which is the biggest online community for Clash of Clans players in Philippines.
Meanwhile, there are rumors suggesting that a New Town Hall Level 11 upgrade is coming soon. The players who have Level 10 Town Halls don’t really have much to do, other than attacking bases for fun, looting them and also taking part in wars.
However, this definitely gets repetitive for a lot of players and the developers should definitely think about adding some new levels. According to major rumors, this update is probably heading our way in Christmas 2015 or early 2016.
