VIP Class Notes (Tibo) [S]

Today we focused on:

self introduction

Speaking

I’m in grade 6, I like to play basketball and lego. I’ve built a huge castle, some spaceships and I like to have some lego men fighting with my little brother.
He is 7, I’m 12. We often fight, sometimes we can play happily together but after a while we often get mad with each other. He is always breaking the rules and he always blame me with no reason.
I play at school with some of my friends and sometimes I play with my father. I just like to play basketball but I don’t think I’m really good at basketball.
My dream is to become a video game designer. So I can know more video games and create some very good games for people.
I like games like clash of clans and games about building something and fighting. I like PUBG.
I prefer PVP games, if it is only PVE it is not very interesting and I can VS my father and my brother in PVP games.
I like to draw the environment or design the characters in the game I have drew one before.
Actually I have designed 2 characters and I’m interested in programming too. one of my designing is a big, it’s about fighting and farming and the other one is about spaceship fighting like this.

Many things frustrating because I have been killed for several times when it is just 2 people left and one time I even killed myself with a bomb.
I’ve killed myself in PUBG with a bomb I wanted to throw it but I clicked the wrong button and it just killed me instead.
My clan was fighting against 6 or 7 other clans, we are just gonna win and in my clan the last surviving person forgot to play for 2 weeks. So just survivors in other clans attacked him and he didnt attack other players so we lost.
Its like you have a HQ and you must upgrade it to build more buildings. these buildings can be like cannons or bombs. sort of things like that to defend.
And also you can train your soldiers to attack other people, villages and you can upgrade the soldiers and buildings. There is a clan fighting.
If you win you will get some sources … the mine … the gem mine and a lot of gold and those medical waters.
The game was keeping to like get more thing you can build.

if you have enough resources such as gems you can buy anything you want and develop your village to a very high grade in no time.
You can do some quests and open some chests or you can buy it with money and you can get it from the mine.
There is a special mine it produce gem like 2 gems a day. My HQ is grade 6 now, if I want to upgrade it to grade 7 I will need 120 gems. the chest is very rare but if you open it you can get 50 gems and a quest can give you 5 or 10 or 20 gems.
I have 2 accounts for this game, In my another account my HQ is grade 10 now. In my father account the HQ is grade 10 too.
The highest HQ now is HQ 12 and you can get stars for it. They are for HQ just like you upgrade it. When you get 5 stars your HQ can have a special weapon a lighting thing, it is really powerful it can give all your enemies a huge damage.

everything in Minecraft is a cube, I think it is really ugly. The game itself is fun but I don’t like the style.

In the game you run a HQ/castle and you need to build more buildings and upgrade them.
these buildings can be defense facilities like cannons or archer towers…. or production facilities such as gold mines.

And also you can train your soldiers to attack other people, villages and you can upgrade the soldiers just like you do it with the buildings.
There are clan battles / you can also fight against other clans
If you win you will get some resources. There are several kinds of them. Gold is used for construction and trading, magical water  is used for training soldiers and gems can be used for anything. Gems is the currency of the game.

The game continues to be updated and developers always include new buildings and units with new patches.
The game was keeping to like get more thing you can build.

if you have enough resources such as gems you can buy anything you want and develop your village to a very high grade in no time.
in order to get gems you can do/complete some quests and open some chests or you can buy them with real money and you can get them from the mine.
There is a special mine which produces about 2 gems a day. My HQ is grade 6 now, if I want to upgrade it to grade 7 I will need 120 gems. Chests are very rare but if you open one you can get 50 gems and a quest can give you from 5  to  20 gems.

your HQ can be upgraded up to grade 12 / the current limit is grade 12 and you can get stars for it

When you get 5 stars can obtain a special weapon it is like lightning, it is really powerful it can inflict/deal all your enemies a huge damage.
