Decent Gameplay...Timings Irritating

The tutorial was well-constructed and gave insightful information on how to play. However, as construction timings become increasingly high, the game becomes less enjoyable since it discourages you from playing. Games similar in the construction preface, such as clash of clans, make it possible for simultaneous construction projects to occur, giving multiple "builders." This game provides 1 construction yard with a ridiculously priced (in gems, the premium currency) upgrade progression that adds more queue SLOTS, meaning there is no simultaneous construction, rather the construction can be planned in advance. This doesn't help the game become any less tedious; in fact the only thing it does is to further disconnect players from the game. I think that if construction could be simultaneous through more reasonably priced means, this would help increase the player base to an amount this game desires. I'm giving it 3 stars because although it lacks this right now, both the graphics and the game plots are charming elements.

I gave it an honest go but no thank you

Gameplay is slooow, the build times are long, and the in-game costs are wacky!
The economics are truly wacky....some things are in line with what would be expected then some are just far off by thousands of diamonds (rarest of resources that you can buy with real $) for some basic item. You must check in on the game at specific intervals as coins must be collected on a schedule or you loose them. There is too much waiting around after every choice made. Repairs after someone attacks or does some sabotage take DAYS to repair. There is no "time out" after an attack or sabotage so a person or an alliance can pound you over and over and over again. With repairs taking so long you cannot get battle ready before the next attack (unless you spend $). There is no player level alignment in battles so high levels can and do easily bash lower levels. Some level 40s (top level), with nothing left to spend resources on, create huge numbers of attackers and "pick on" lower levels. Not much fun in that.
You don't actually get to see your opponents base or attacks; you only see their name with some stats and a win or lose outcome.
No one gets to see your base either other than you. No strategy of base design comes into play.

I also call Baloney on the multiple recent 5 star one line ("best game ever") reviews. They don't seem genuine.

3 months

I've been playing for 3 months and this game has gotten me hooked. I run an alliance and warfare is crazy. The community is what makes the game really fun. It doesn't get too intense until you hit lvl 20 but there are a lot of tricks in this game that if learned, can put you at the top. Level 10 is the best to farm gold and gems because your attacks go out takes 10 minutes compared to lvl 40 takes 1 hour. Trust me, give this game a chance I play everyday and can play up to 4 hours before running out of objectives.
