Default [Q] playing games while charger plugged in

Would It be detrimental to battery life if for example playing a game like clash of clans while plugged in, due to the huge battery drain caused by this app? I notice that the phone gets fairly hot as a result of this.

I would not recommend playing games which generates heat whilst charging the battery which generates heat.

playing games and change at the same time killed the battery of my last phone...
This doesn't go fast, but if you do this over a long time, your battery will inflate (happened to me )
