I took a break from blogging about my progress through the latest HQ25 update since there wasn’t much to talk about recently so I could save everything for Friday’s Imitation Game. As always, Friday ends up being the best day for resources (outside of the Mega Crab event) so pretty much I go all out with the offensive boosts to handle the event but my PVP battles as well.
Today, I felt was the first real test of the post HQ25 drop against Hammerman Strikes Back. I think if either of my HQ were not at level 25, I would have fared a bit poorer in that the attacks were much fiercer, using stuff like Cryoneers from stage 4 and quite a bit of Grenadiers and even some Bombardiers at the higher stages. Still, I prevailed.
Got through my Sunday by completing a stage 7 Dr T Volcano Island on both accounts. I did lose 1 tank on my secondary account but it occurred at the last stage which is my final attack of the day usually, meaning it would have little overall impact.
Saturdays and Tuesdays tend to be boring as far as upgrades go. Dr T’s Tropical Island doesn’t really provide much resources these days for worthwhile upgrades while the upper levels can be harsh, especially as they probably will be adjusted in difficulty as troops receive new updates. Nonetheless, one can still find a few worthy upgrades even with the HQ25 update from time to time.
Today is another Imitation Game days. In short, plenty of resources, fully boosted statues and getting the chance to see the potential full power of my squad as both accounts barrel forward.
Well, we’re back to the daily grind on both accounts. One thing I wanted to mention before diving into this post is that my ancient iOS iPad allowed for the update. I think that if I was prevented from updating Boom Beach on my iPad, I probably would have quit the game entirely just because I would only have one account to play and lose out on operations. More importantly, I wouldn’t want to spend $200+ for a refurbished iPad just to play a game.
After a week delay, the Boom Beach HQ 25 finally has arrived. This update is a bizarre one because it is said that it will be done in three parts. I have seen some YouTubers post the developer’s build to their channels, which looked incomplete or that there were bugs. So I’m going to share what I’ve seen today from my accounts and perhaps what we will see from various YouTubers.
I’ve been reading the reddit forums as well as perusing various YouTube comments and it seems that HQ25will be a thing. I saw a video which implied HQ25 where one of the upgrades mentioned requiring HQ25. The questions are when will it drop and what will drop with it?
