Can you get more builders?

No, one builder is the max. The Economy, upgrade duration & costs are designed and balanced on building one thing at a time. This is done on purpose so that users will have to choose a more strategic path for their upgrade plans.

How does the Player Matchmaking works?

Other player opponents in your map are referred to as ‘Blackguard mercenaries’. These players are selected from players with a similar matchmaking score for the right level of challenge.

Each time a new mercenary base is shown on your map through exploration or invasion, your matchmaking score goes up. It will go down if you have several player opponents in your map. Therefore if there are many opponents which you are unable to beat, they will eventually be switched by easier opponents. Your matchmaking score is not visible.

How does NPC Matchmaking work?

The NPC opponents shown on your map are also selected by the matchmaking proces. It will attempt to give you opponents with the right level of challenge.
In contradiction to the player matchmaking, your NPC matchmaking score cannot go down. Each time you’ll defeat an NPC opponent you score will go up. Therefore every new NPC opponent will be an more difficult one.

Can you get a Shield to protect your base from getting attacked?

No, unlike Clash of Clans there is no Shield functionality in Boom Beach. Whenever you are offline your base can be attacked by other players. Plan your attacks and upgrades before you log off. That way the resources will be low for the attackers.

What is the Envelope button for?

It is a way for Supercell to send all players a message and link. The reason this is important is that players may not realise when important changes to the game are made.

How do I save my base?

Make sure you are logged in to Gamecenter when you play Boom Beach. This will save your village so that you are able to play Boom Beach further on multiple IOS devices with the same village.

I was attacked while I was online, how is this possible?

Normally you can’t get attacked when you are online. However, to prevent players to remain online day and night other players may attack you if you were online several hours a day. You will first receive a message before you can get attacked by other players, despite the fact that you are online. After this grace period, your game can be interrupted at any time by an enemy attack. The only exception is when you attack another player.
