Ever came across the “rule players”? What does it even mean? Players who obey the rules? Well, these players are having their own unofficial rules. Usually these players have certain rules, which they want their friends to follow as well.
These rules are easy to understand, nothing special or difficult:
Never attack your friends!
There is a way to avoid attacking players who are not in your friends list: When you get attacked, press revenge and choose random. The result is you will mostly attack people, which are not in your friends list. Players are following this unofficial rule to hurt damage each other.
If you are about to raid your friends you send them a message on Facebook first. You wait for a couple minutes and see if you hear from them. Basically you ask them if you can dig or you let them spend all the coins first. Here is the trick: You can still dig the coins, even if the person just spent all the coins. This means no one losing anything. You gain coins and your friend is able to react and spend all the coins first.
Not all people play this way, so if you don’t know a person you are connecting with just check it or be clear about the way you play yourself. If you are not a match it might be best to just unfriend and look for other friends.
Of course not everyone is playing in this way. There are a few groups on Facebooks, which are only playing in this way. The best is to hit your “new” friends up with a message to know if they follow any rules regarding raids or attacks. If you follow these rules, but your friends doesn’t its best to remove them from the friends list.
