Many have strives to play CoC on their PC instead of having to keep charging their device in order to play for a long period of time. Well, there are many other reasons and advantages of playing CoC on PC, one of the most common reasons being the ability to do precision troop dropping (especially during Clan Wars).
Clash of clans is one of the most anticipated mobile app/games currently in the market. It’s a strategy game that offers various kinds of strategic game plays such as castle buildings, base defending, instantaneous PVP (by attacking people’s bases), fighting goblins (PVE), and most importantly, Clan Wars, ranging from 10 vs 10 to massive war 50 vs 50.
Well, there is currently still no official announcement from Supercell that CoC will be in anyway available for PC, Mac or any other computer OS. It will continue to support only the touchscreen users because of its original game design. However, with the help of android emulators, it is possible to download and run Clash of Clans on PC for free.
Download Clash of Clans for PC via Bluestacks
As we already know that Clash of Clans is a mobile game and is never made for PC or Mac. It targets only the users who have a touchscreen device.
So, what makes playing clash of clans on a PC possible is an android emulator. There are many android emulators available now on the internet. Some require you to pay for it while some are free to use. Among the free version of android emulators, Bluestacks is the most popular and most used to date.
To understand how it works, we first need to understand what Bluestacks does. Bluestacks, as we know, is an android emulator that emulates a virtual android device on your computer. It means that you can run an android version of phone or tablet virtually on your PC without the need of porting any external devices.
So, after we have installed this emulator, you will virtually have something like a tablet on your screen which display and act exactly like an android mobile phone or a tablet. We will then install Clash of Clans onto the emulator and runs from it.
How to install Clash of Clans in Bluestacks
The very first step is to, of course, install Bluestacks. Head to Bluestacks.com and look for a download link that match your Windows or Mac OS version (if it doesn’t already detected yours). Download and install it.
The installation should be plain and simple unless if you come across the most common Bluestacks error, the Bluestacks 25000 Error. Visit the page we have linked there to quickly fix the problem if the error pops to you.
If nothing goes wrong during the installation, when you run Bluestacks, it should look like the screenshot below (ignore all the installed app, you will get to install them soon enough).
To install Clash of Clans in your Bluestacks App Player, click on the “Search” appeared as the first icon in the Bluestacks window. Search for Clash of Clans and click on it. Before you get to download it, you will be asked to sign in to your Google account as you would on your mobile phone. Your Google account will also be needed to sync with your Clash of Clans progress if you have already played the game on your devices.
Don’t worry about your account getting hacked or stolen. Bluestacks is perfectly safe and it’s one of the most used software on the internet.
After you’ve signed in, you can then click on the download button on the clash of clans page in Google Playstore. When it’s done, you can run Clash of Clans from the Bluestacks App Player’s home screen.
Another thing worth noting is that Bluestacks will gradually show you two choices which are compulsory for you to choose one. You will be asked to either pay 2$ a month to continue using it or install 2 sponsored App and continue running Bluestacks for free. There is no downside of installing their sponsored app at all. You might as well just install the sponsored App and use Bluestacks freely. Well, if you are so generous enough to pay Bluestacks, pay and save the hassle from having to install these apps from time to time.

Clash of Clans is a slow pace mobile game that takes 5-10mins each day for casual progression (if you are looking to get yourself into the ladder, you may need hours). You will be given 2 builders by default which will be used to build buildings for your base. You can have as many as 5 builders either by completing achievements (which usually takes months) or by paying for gems. The more builders you have, the faster you can upgrade your buildings and thus further advancing your base.
It’s a very competitive game with highly tense gameplay environment which makes people willing to pay for the game. When they pay, they pay a lot, and I meant a lot like thousands of dollars per enthusiastic player. Well, personally, I paid a couple of dollars just to quickly get all the 5 builders and keep them busy.
The main currency in this game is GEM. These gems can be used to purchase more builders, as mentioned earlier, and complete your upgrades without the waiting cooldown, exchange for other currencies such as gold or elixir, or to instantly produce troop. The most common usage of gem is, of course, to complete upgrades that take days or even weeks (that’s what I meant slow pace and I’ve been playing CoC for years now, cheers).
Gem can be earned for free from completing achievement or what they often called, quests, otherwise you would have to pay for them. Don’t waste your gem onto anything except for getting builders. When you have collected all 5 builders, excess gem can be used to complete long term upgrades (at least 10 days to be worth it).
Gold and elixir, however, cannot be purchased directly by cash but can be converted by using gem. Don’t do this because it’s extremely inefficient and not worth the money. Well, other than collecting from your gold miners and elixir collectors daily, the best way to farm for gold and elixir is by farming (and this is what you need maybe an hour a day to be on CoC). We have a farming guide containing all the crucial tips and things you should know to save your time here: Clash of Clans Attack Strategy – Farming Guide.
We have also written a dozen of Clash of Clans Advance attack strategies and trophies farming guide compiled in this page: Clash of Clans Attack Strategy Tips and Cheat Sheets. Feel free to check that out and you will find yourself with a handful of advance clan war attack strategy and farming tips to save time, energy and money.
