New Elements on the Battle FieldRifleman, Heavy, Zooka, Medic, Tank, Warrior are the troops for your battles in the Boom Beach. Each has his strength. For example, the Heavy has a higher Hit Point but a lesser attack point. While the Zooka is the opposite, dealing a higher damage but moving slower. Apart from that, there are boosts such Artillery, Flare, Medkit, Shock Bomb, Barrage and Smoke Screen to aid you in the battle fields. If those skills are applied strategically, it is going to increase your chances of defeating the enemies significantly. The key point of a battle in the Boom Beach game, is to destroy the enemy's headquarter.
|Here i intelligently use the Flare to direct the troops to the rear side of the base which has a much weaker defense.|
Having said that, all you need to do, is to make use of your troops and the Powers to come out with a plan to destroy the Headquarter as soon as possible! If the base has too much towers placed together, use Shock Bomb to effectively avoid their attacks. If there are Rocket Launchers equipped, use Shock Bomb/Artillery on them while approaching them. If there are Machine Guns or Mortars, prepare Medkit for your troops. Analyze your enemies' base first before landing your troops.

On the other hand, you may get busted too, if you are loose in your base development. The good thing is that, there always come with a video showing how (poor/breathtaking) your base is being raided, playable the speed 1x, 2x or 4x. Learn a lesson from that and become stronger next time.
The Bases are evenly distributed across the map.You may discover that in the Boom Beach game, you won't come across some jokers (who have reached much higher level than yours) around your base (after exploring with the Radar). Depending on your levels and the Victory Points, you would be placed/arranged in such a way that the enemies around are good to be your opponents. This is something that i really favor. I used to play this kind of combat games in the Facebook before. But this Boom Beach has indeed done much better in the placement of our bases.

Money doesn't dominate the gameLast but not least, this Boom Beach doesn't allow someone to dominate the game with money. Yes, you can use money to buy diamonds which boost your base development progress. However, it doesn't mean that you could always bully the weaker with your troops (due to the almost evenly distributed bases algorithm). Moreover, the enemies that you have defeated would be replaced with a stronger one. Apart from that, you have limited troops according to your levels. And the Power in the battle field only depends on your action points accumulated, but not the money.
In short, i really look forward to playing this game in my Android devices soon. But i believe it may still take a while, as i still experience glitches in the iOS version now (sometimes the servers are under maintenance).
