But wait! We still have three Clashmas gifts to share with you, Chief! What could be inside these boxes? Find out next week when we open the first present! 🙂

Attention! This is the only Sneak Peek for the December 2016 Update! But there is more to come – read here the Update Ticker for up to date information.


Wow! What a Sneak Peek! I think this will turn out to be a pretty sizable update. The balancing changes are predictable and now Town Hall 11 starts to really get some exclusive items.

My (rather careful) predictions are that PEKKA, Golem & Witches will take over the meta in the next months and air attacks will work way better with Balloons dropping their packages faster. If you’re currently saving up some Dark Elixir for upgrading Bowlers, you should really save that for the next Golem or Witch upgrade instead.

I’m really stoked about the new events and I think the upgrade discounts will be something many of you will like! 🙂

  1. does anyone know if level 45 bk and aq gain an additional level of ability? Right now at level 40 they have a level 8 ability. Does it go to level 9? I can’t find this information anywhere. I assume it would increase but then again the CC upgrade is the first time that an upgrade did not add new troop slots to the CC.

  2. what’s the need for walls really ???
    but anyway i liked the speed increment of certain troops 😊😊😊

    PS : way too excited for the presents tooo ….

  3. Hello, Tim!

    I’m really enjoying the update. Since queen’s ability duration does not improve in lv45, do you agree that maxing the king is more important? I always prioritize the queen over the king, but this time seems to be different…

    • Well I don’t see that much of a difference for that since you will be maxing both of them anyway.
      I would go with the BK because I hate upgrading my AQ XD

    • Well they have plenty to unlock and TH11 is the worst balanced TH of all.
      Why do you want new stuff if you haven’t unlocked everything available so far? 🙂

      • I maxed TH10 every def, and i’m now upgading my walls!
        My king is 33, but I think, this game was not made only for gembuyers!
        Every update is incite the man to the rush!
        Now the different is very big between TH10 and TH11, but with this upgrade TH11s will be untouchable.

      • Well, IMO TH11 used to to be such a big difference so far – compared to a maxed TH10, you only have the GW and the Eagle Artillery – nothing else changed dramatically.
        With this update, TH11 really feels like a new level
        But that can just be my personal feeling, I upgraded to th11 when it was released one year ago

      • Guess you’re right, Tim. TH11 has become more challenging now.
        I’m a nearly maxed TH10, too, and I don’t have any problems with this update. More stuff for TH11 means more fun as soon as I’ll be a TH11 myself.

  4. Wtf, because of this update my max th10 base(heroes both 40) will be easily destroyed by a decent th11 attacker. I didn’t feel the change in cost of heroes coz mine are maxed already. Then there’s no additional attack improvement on th10, it crazy. Walang forever lol.

    • Youre strong baby. As a additional, there is an additional upgrade for wizard tower in th10, and the recently bomb towers. It is harder to 3s a max th10 even though this is just a small change.

      • It isn’t really that hard to do a max th10 but how hard as a max th10 is it to 3 * a max th9 its a dog eat dog world this game !

  5. Queens discount starts at 26 😒 Just completed lvl 33 upgrade, Kings discount starts at 31…. he is still lvl 26. Wish supercell changed those numbers lol but at least now it will get easier to finish AQ to lvl 40. Definitely completing both heroes to lvl 40 before going TH11 now. But I like the pekka and loon changes. Just wish I could catch up to these updates and get to th11 this lifetime 😂. Maybe sometime in 2017 I’ll make it, are they really only allowing 50 wall pieces to upgrade to lvl 12 or am I misunderstanding that?… and the next question, who would use those in the core and who would strategically place them throughout the base in their corner sections? I’m assuming players using island base layout will do them in core and ones with many compartments might pick and choose compartments like where the eagle is or around infernos. Sounds like a good one though. I like the continual push for balancing instead of just always new stuff. And glad bowlers aren’t getting any more changes. Happy clashing and happy holidays everyone!

  6. I’d like to have 2 army’s ready at the same time. So you can switch. For example: 1 GoHo and 1 GoVaWi. Or 1 war and 1 farm army. It would help a lot for practicing attacking or test out bases (in friendly challenges).

    Please remove the time on changed bases for friendly challenges in the clan.

    Until now it’s better to stay maxed TH9 for CW. Hope that the new update will do good to TH 10 & 11 to give a bigger chance of 3 star.

    Further, keep up the good work Supercell!

  7. This update is huge kinda pleased because just doing the extra 25 walls to lvl 10 so gr8 they will be cheaper and another 5 lvls on heroes is nothing so all gr8 as far as I’m concerned ! The pekka needed a buff one of the most expensive troops but useless past th8 tbh !

  8. A lot of information. The game is changing again. From what I can understand and predict there is one thing behind the update that is really hiddenas it is described only in two little phrases. AIR IS BACK! OK golem is stronger pekka and witches too. But this is incomparable to the change of the air units. We were expecting a new level air and a balance of the air troops. New air level did not come. Loons will rule! For smaller levels drags will be invincible. Just a prediction which I think is not very far from the truth.

  9. This is a big update! As a TH10 though, I’m preparing to get demolished more often by TH11s (which I suppose is fair because I can now easily take out TH9s)

    • Hi, I still believe they’ll put some new content into the game. This update may seem huge, but the only new thing is the events tab. The rest is Just balancing, new levels, etc. let’s wait and see

      • An additional elixer spell is big. Sometimes I find myself going with an additional poison just because I can, not that it changes the outcome. Or if I go with 4 eqs, I usually don’t have space for a poison so now you’ll be able to request one poison and one eq. Think thats a big difference.

        Plus don’t forget lvl45 queen walk?! And a lvl45 king will add more tanking ability with the new golems. So the troops behind it should last longer.

        Even though I’m not TH11, they needed an end game focussed update

      • It sure is, but when asked about new game mode, supercell answered that they would provide some interesting new content (no spoilers)… I hope this sneak peak is not all the new content they promised…

        I’m sitting on 10m gold, just waiting for the update to come… when do you expect it to come, Tim? Tuesday? Wednesday? Any guess? Tks

      • they said like yes it’s all but wait there’s also some more.
        I think in terms of content it’s all but what happens when they open the presents, idk 😀
