There is no single small doubt that there will be a Clash of Clans Update in December 2017, like every year we’ll be getting at least a snow theme, a seasonal Christmas Tree and when looking at last year very likely also a Clashmas Event with seasonal troops and Gem Boosts.
I think most of us will agree that 2017 wasn’t a great year for Clash of Clans in terms of new content (and I’m saying this although I’m enjoying Builder Base a lot personally!) and Darian already has been getting the excitement high with his announcement that there will be something good coming. Well, they are working on it since May 🙂
In this update article, I will put up all important things (rumors, my opinion and of course official statements) together to give you guys a good overview what’s coming – especially those of you who don’t spend hours in the official forum and Reddit.
Clash of Clans December 2017 Update
Please note, the order is from the bottom (old) to top (most recent). If you’re visiting this page for the first time and want to get the whole story, you’ll need to start from the bottom.
5v5 Clan Wars (November 13th, 2017)
In the next maintenance, we’re excited to introduce a new Clan War size: 5v5 Clan Wars. Want to try an elite strike force of Town Hall 11’s? Or perhaps test your mettle with five Town Hall 10’s or any other interesting lineups? The 5v5 Clan War size lets you concentrate your attack force in pocket-sized wars.
Not only does this new Clan War size give you more options in the wars you wage, it gives Clans greater flexibility for smaller Clans, or larger Clans who like to alternate War sizes each war! Keep in mind that, as usual, you’ll only be able to run one War at a time.
Additionally, the next maintenance will bring further matchmaking improvements to Clan Wars (including a slightly higher attack weight for the Grand Warden).
Update Info Soon?! (November 3rd, 2017)
Is there any better way to start this trip towards the next update than the first hints from people that know what’s coming telling that there will be some first info coming soon?
In the official forums this just happened and I think it’s a great start to get you all onboard so we’re on the same page.
Well, Town Hall 12 is something many people are looking at (i get like 20 emails every day from people asking if TH12 is coming…), but indeed it got ruled out already to be something that’s coming this year or anywhere soon.
The December 2017 Update is what the recent (frankly spoken underwhelming) October Update was laying the foundation for with the Clan Badges. Here’s the original text that Darian wrote during the Sneak Peeks in October:
Darian (Oct, 8th):
In this second Sneak Peek, we want to give you a glimpse of some Clan improvements we will be releasing in the next update. This update is just the beginning of laying down the groundwork for new content we will be introducing in the future. But one thing at a time…
While it’s hard to see in which direction this all moves, Supercell already ruled out that there will be more Clan Perks in the way we have them now because this would give new clans a disadvantage that’s too large.When looking at the different styles, we can clearly see that they adapt to the symbols of the different Trophy Leagues and I’m quite sure that there will not be a specific new game mode but that Supercell will develop something that will motivate us to compete as a clan.
Many other games have something like a clan collecting something together during a season and get rewarded depending on the League and the results and that’s, in my opinion, the logical step that Supercell might be going with these changes. If they will do something like that, it’s probably collecting trophies, stars or loot within a certain period of time to unlock rewards.
So, hopefully we will get some first info soon – please comment what you think will come in the December 2017 Update for Clash of Clans 🙂
