Giant Skeleton Permanent Troop? December 2017 Update Ticker

The Clash of Clans Update in December 2017 will be the second huge content update we will see in this year along with the seasonal exciting stuff like Gem Boosts, seasonal troops & a snow theme.

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 DAILY UPDATED 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 in December 2017 – 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.

Will the Giant Skeleton become a permanent troop (January 2nd, 2018)

The Clashmas Event with so many events and stuff is coming to an end, but there is one thing about the Giant Skeleton that could be interesting for us in the coming months.

There are several things that point towards the Giant Skeleton might become a troop permanently available in the game, although Darian said before that they actually don’t have plans to make the seasonal troops permanent ones to keep the fun up when they make their appearance.

One thing is that the Giant Skeleton shows up in the Laboratory while other seasonal troops & spells like Ice Wizard, Santa’s Strike or Battle Ram haven’t.

This shows that there is a difference in how the Giant Skeleton is integrated in the game (on the source code level), plus it also doesn’t have the “limited availability” in the description neither.

giant skeleton coc permanent troop

This is still only light evidence and although Darian said some time ago that there is no plan about making it a permanent troops, the huge popularity and the fact that there hasn’t been a new troop in more than 1 year could have changed their minds.

However, this is nothing that we will see in the next days or weeks, but I personally would appreciate the Giant Skeleton as it adds a lot of new aspects to attacking. Anyway, when making a comeback as permanent troop, there needs some balancing to be made, especially to the death damage and also how it would work as a defending Clan Castle troop 🙂

What do you think?

So Many Events (December 27th, 2017)

Out of nowhere, 3 new Events have started just a few hours ago. It’s a 4x Star Bonus Events, the 1 Gem Army Boost Event plus a 2x Clan War Reward Event.

clashmas events 2017

On one side I love all the events as they can keep you busy all the time and making your Builders go nuts with all the resources you can get – on the other side, I was a little frustrated after the first attacks as the clouding issue that has been getting better yesterday after the Clan Games finished got back at a very bad state with long times in the clouds:

Clouding Problems in Clash of Clans

Well, but to be honest I rather take all the events than crying about the clouding times.

Also, there a new Value Offer Pack available in the shop for the next 7 days, rewarding you with 2 Magical Boos plus 500 Gems.

magic book offer

The pack itself offers quite some value being worth 3,400 (500 Gems + 7 Days Hero Upgrade worth 1000 Gems and 14 Days Building Upgrade worth 1900 Gems), but be careful and mind that you can only store 1 book of each kind in your Clan Castle! If you already got them from the past event in your Clan Castle, you need to wait or you will simply waste the extra value from the Value Pack!

War Weights Update (December 26th, 2017)

I just updated my guide with all the war weights, specifically added spells and the new Hero levels plus what happened to the war weight of the Inferno Tower. Check it out here:

Clouding Problems (December 25th, 2017)

Clouding is getting worse and worse, I have been writing together the reasons why clouding is such a problem, why the solution is not easy and also how you can make the best of waiting in the clouds right now:

Ice Wizard Guide (December 23rd, 2017)

The Ice Wizard is available and I have been writing a guide for that will show you how to win using him and the best attacking composition:

The Return Of The Giant Skeleton (December 21st, 2017)

There might be a small surprise to all of us with the third Clashmas seasonal surprise – last year that was the Freeze Trap.

However, there have been some bugs and it might be the case that Supercell hadn’t the chance or didn’t want to fix it and decided to bring the Giant Skeleton back – a troop that most of use really liked most of all seasonal troops and remember well from the Halloween event a couple weeks ago.

In the Play Store, the next update info shows us this:

giant skeleton december 2017 update clash of clans

As you can see all the dates fit with the next Clan Games starting tomorrow.

Next Clan Games (December 21st, 2017)

The next clan games are announced and they will become a whole lot bigger than the first ones that finished a couple hours ago, with bigger rewards, adapted resources and up to Tier 6.

next clan games

It’s not stated directly, but I think we will be finally able to get our first books to skip upgrades in this Clan Game 🙂

The first Clan Games did reward 200 Gems in total, not that bad actually – but read here more about selling magical items and also how much you get for them:

Fix Clan Game Reward Selection (December 21st, 2017)

Some players have problems turning their first Clan Games rewards into Gems, so another maintenance break is incoming in the next minutes

Maintenance Break & Clouds (December 20th, 2017)

In a few moments there will be a maintenance break to do some server fixes:

Also, there’s quite a huge issue with the clouds right now because there are so many more attacks due to the Clan Games:

That’s not the best solution, but when looking back to last year at this time we had a similar problem. Clouds are a problem because so many more players want to attack but the number of villages becoming available is not equally rising. I hope Supercell finds a solution and I might remember right that they have been adding more dead bases to the pool last year to keep the cloud times in halfway acceptable dimension.

If you’re at Legend League or higher Titan League, you might also consider dropping trophies, as abandoned bases will not be added there, or let’s say the number will be smaller than in lower leagues.

However, please don’t expect to now find abandoned bases everywhere it’s just a small addition.

1 Gem Boost Started (December 19th, 2017)

Not only did the first Clan Games in the history of Clash of Clans start one hour ago, also the Santa Strike Event (seasonal spell) and the 1 Gem Resource Boost that will last for 8 days and only costs 1 Gem to boost a Mine, Collector or Drill for a whole day have been activated.

Update Problems? (December 18th, 2017)

Update not in the AppStore? The message “your device is not compatible with this device”? Every update several players among us have problems updating their Clash of Clans app and play the new update – here’s what you need to do to fix it:

Christmas Trees Are Growing Already (December 18th, 2017)

The update we have been getting like 1 hour ago already has the winter theme we’re used to activated, including the seasonal obstacle – the 2017 Christmas Tree that is already growing and some have been lucky enough to get it. Here’s how it looks like:

Dev Video on Magical Items (December 18th, 2017)

Here’s the video we’ve all been waiting for the whole weekend, Devs talking about the update:

The important thing is wrapped up here:

  • Clan Games will not be seasonal but ongoing, Supercell still figures out the perfect duration
  • There will be plenty of challenges you can finish, not only attacks but also destroying a certain number of a certain building and so on
  • Magical Items can help you boost and also finish certain upgrades (e.g. Hero Upgrade)

clan games challenges

UPDATE TODAY (December 18th, 2017)

The update maintenance break just started it will last for at least one and a half hours:

It’s a little unexpected as we all have been waiting for the video that is supposed to reveal the “Q” to us and show us more details about the upcoming Clan Games and the “Magical Items” we can achieve within it.


Here are the release notes from the AppStore:

Clan Games

Get your clan together and prepare to do your collective best in Clan Games! Complete Challenges together with your clanmates and climb through the reward tiers all the way to the top to earn resources, gems and Magic Items!

Magic Items

Powerful items with magic properties have appeared! Magic items have wonderful powers that range from helping you with upgrades to boosting various things in your village and army. The treasury in the Clan Castle has been modified to store them safely!

I highlighted the interesting parts. It sounds like there will be different reward tiers for the clan games, a system that many other mobile games have for a similar feature, I’m really hoping the tiers are incentive enough to keep us motivated.

The magical items are exactly what many here have been suggesting – (very likely consumable) items that you can use to boost your collectors, army production or builder – sounds a lot like a “free” gem boost you can use from time to time but without knowing more about reward tiers and durations it’s too hard to tell if that disappointing or not. I personally would have hoped for more unique things, including things you can build in your village to personalize, but we’ll see about that in about 1-2 hours 🙂

Video Delayed (December 17th, 2017)

The video that is supposed to reveal the big “Q” this weekend just got delayed to tomorrow 🙁

Finally we will get to know what the mystery “Q” will be this weekend.

Sneak Peek #3 Balancing Changes (December 15th, 2017)

As part of our Winter 2017 Update, we are introducing balance changes that will affect Town Halls 10 and 11. We understand there is a significant barrier of entry going from Town Hall 9 to Town Hall 10 and an even higher one when going to Town Hall 11.

This is not only noted by how many players prefer to remain at Town Hall 9, but also looking at the drop off of success rate of 3-Star attacks at higher Town Hall levels. We want the game to be challenging and fun, but we also don’t want it to be discouraging where a steep learning curve can cause people to be demotivated by its difficulty.

Addressing these balance issues has been a challenging task. While we’ve introduced new troop levels, wall levels, and other upgrades over the course of the year, we are taking a slightly different approach for this content balance.  Here are the changes that are coming in this update:

Golem HP has been adjusted:

  • Level 1 (4500HP -> 5100HP)
  • Level 2 (5000HP -> 5400HP)
  • Level 3 (5500HP – 5700HP)

Lava Hound HP has been adjusted

  • Level 1 (5700HP -> 6100HP)
  • Level 2 (6200HP -> 6500HP)
  • Level 3 (6700HP -> 6800HP)

Giant HP has been adjusted

  • Level 5 (670 -> 720)
  • Level 7 (1100 -> 1220)
  • Level 8 (1260 -> 1440)

Miner Housing space increased from 5 to 6 per troop

Barbarian King and Archer Queen

  • Added 5 more levels (to a max of level 50), and previous level costs have been adjusted.
  • See comparison between old and new Dark Elixir costs for Barbarian King here and Archer Queen here.

Inferno Towers:

  • The effect that prevents healing while receiving damage from Inferno Towers has been removed.


  • 25 additional wall pieces may be upgraded to Level 12(so now you can upgrade 125 wall pieces to level 12)

Army Camps:

  • Army Camps at Town Hall level 11 will gain an additional level (Max: Level 9)

X-Bow DPS has been adjusted:

  • Level 2 (70 DPS -> 60 DPS)
  • Level 3 (90 DPS -> 80 DPS)
  • Level 4 (100 DPS -> 90 DPS)

There are a lot of things that have the potential to mix around a lot like Inferno Tower healing removement and more troop space for TH11.

More Clan Games Hints (December 14th, 2017)

With the Sneak Peek #2 released earlier today (see below), we know now that the Clan Games that get introduced in next weeks update will make you and your clan mates collect points together that result in a price – in the forum, Darian has been giving some more smaller hints that will go deeper than what the Sneak Peek #2 has shown.

First of all, the mentioned “magical items” will not “exactly” be another resource or a gameplay related item:

clash of clans magical itemscoc magical items coc update december 2017Ok this doesn’t make it a lot more clear, but this comment made me think that these items MIGHT be consumable items:

I think we have to wait a little bit longer to get a final answer to this, but it sounds interesting.

Now, some think that the Clan Games will just be the adaption of Clash Royales Clan Chest (all clan members collect trophies during the week and depending on that everyone will get a reward at the end of the week). Darian said it will NOT be like the Clan Chest in Clash Royale:

clan games gameplay info

Last but not least for now – the important question where is the letter “Q”? Supercell will release a developer video that will explain everything about that, so I think the roadmap will be 2 more Sneak Peeks that might show more hints until we finally see on Sunday how this whole Clan Games feature will work.

dev video clan games coc update december 2017

Sneak Peek #2 – Clan Games Details (December 14th, 2017)

Finally some more info about the upcoming clan games:

clan games infoI really had to laugh when seing the images of the different “games” as this was also suggested in the forums yesterday 😀

Of course, clan games are challenges that we are doing along with out clan mates at it looks a lot like this is going in the direction of quests. I know the letter “Q” is missing in the name, but after going through Darians answer in the Q&A Interview where he said that, it could also mean that the feature starts with the letter “Q”.

However, already in the text you can see that there will be different tasks and the more you and your other clan members complete, the more points you will get and the higher the reward will be – that’s pretty much what I have been assuming since the October Update when the “foundation” was done with the additional Clan Levels & Badges.

I really hope that the tasks will be also more interesting than just winning as many Multiplayer Battles or Versus Battles or Trophies to collect to keep this an entertaining thing.

I like the first impression, but the next question is – what are the magic items they speak about?! I really hope these are the special clan decorations they have been talking here and there from time to time in interviews when talking about the future of Clan Level 😍

Sneak Peek #1 – Clan Games Are Coming! (December 13th, 2017)

First update info is out and it announces the “Clan Games”:, you can watch the 10 second Sneak Peek here:

There’s also another version from the forum and from Facebook but none of them tell anything more about the Clan Games. It looks pretty much as we have to wait.

I think this will be either some competition inside your clan or more likely clans competing against each other in a kind of bigger pool than Clan Wars, like having a leaderboard for clans.

I’ve been checking all my sources and it looks like there’s nothing more official I can show you for now 🙁 I hope this won’t end up in something similar than the boat trailers in May before the Builder Base Update.

e info on the forum by accident but deleted it shortly after and unfortunately I missed it – so if you have a screenshot of it, please feel free to link it in the comments or send me an email ([email protected]) – of course I will give you some credit for it 🙂

Sneak Peeks Incoming (December 12th, 2017)

Darian changed his “hopefully this week” …this week, I promise!”

december update sneak peeks clash of clans<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
out the way Darian handles the community since the time when he started his work as community manager and even if the “soons” are still dropped frequently I have the feeling that the communication gets better.

Looks like we can be looking forward to see a (hopefully nice and big) update ready for us before Christmas holidays start 🙂

Sneak Peeks This Week & Balancing (December 11th, 2017)

Good news everyone, Darian did just confirm that Supercell plans to show the Sneak Peeks for the upcoming update starting this week!

december 2017 sneak peeks clash of clans<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
you? No problem, he did get more on point 🙂

uff, he also did get into more detail what we can expect:

coc december 2017 update balancing changes<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
d already been stated for quite a long time now, but the fact that there will be a ton of rebalancing for the highest Town Hall Level is new. From what I also heard, Supercell wants to incentivize those being TH9 for a long time to go to TH10 and higher – unfortunately, I don’t have more information on how they want to do it and what the rebalancing really is. On one side I’m quite ok with the current state of balancing as TH11, but it also is quite boring seeing only 2-3 different attacking strategies over and over. I start getting hyped again and hope this update will be a good one 🙂



Sneak Peeks Soon (November 30th, 2017)

According to Darian we will see Sneak Peeks for the Update very soon. He also made clear one more time that there won’t be TH12 or BH8 coming:

o see some real stuff instead of hints, but with the update cycle if the past years I believe we will see the Sneak Peeks within the next 2 weeks as it would be hard to believe that Supercell would not release the update before Christmas…

Let’s Talk Quests (November 28th, 2017)

I think many of you have heard the info that Darian told the hint for the next update feature will start with the letter “Q” (see below in the Clash Talk Interview #2). He also stated that it’s something that many of us have been waiting for for a long time so it’s quite obvious that many have been thinking about Quests.

I want to slow down expectations here a little bit since too high expectations in the past year have been leaving many of us disappointed and there’s no real evidence that it’s really about Quests! The letter “Q” can also have something to do with “Quality of Life Changes (Clouds, Matchmaking…)” or something different.

MasterMind did create a mockup in the feature request forum back in 2013 with several pictures how he hopes that Quests could look like, so the picture below that many of you have been seeing as a “leak” is actually a 3-year-old fan mockup, nothing else.

Clash of Clans Daily Quests in december 2017 update
Daily Quests Mockup by MasterMind


ou can see the whole fan request here in the original forum post from October 2013 in the official forum.

Please don’t get me wrong, I would love having a solid implementation of quests in Clash of Clans and I really hoped for it for many years but just because the letter “Q” has been thrown into the ring shouldn’t get our hopes too much focused and we might see something very different. I will let you know as soon as I have some more info about that 🙂

Q&A Episode 2 (November 21st, 2017)

Some of you might have forgotten about the second part of the Q&A interview with Darian from Supercell that was initially scheduled for September but then delayed for “internal reasons”. Today, the 2nd part of the interview is finally released and there are some interesting things in it that I wrapped up for you below the video (in case you can’t/don’t want to watch the whole 40 minutes video).

rking on is something that Supercell will roll out in multiple stages that will add more functionalities to the clans and also more incentives for the clans (clan levels) and the first part of it will be rolled out in the December Update (annotation: in the video Darians says “hopefully in the next months during the winter update” but the recorded material was a couple weeks old). Darian also confirms that the next update will pe primarily focus on Home Village content but not in the way of new troops, levels etc. it will be “adding a new dynamic to the game”. He says it’s something that “so many players wanted for such a long time” and also the hint is that the word starts with the letter “Q” – could it be quests?!

  1. Books are, as being said in the beginning in the release video, extremely rare because they are very powerful – you can skip a 14 days upgrade that’s worth 2k Gems… that’s because they are not giving them away easily
    But I’m sure they will also host a clan game that will run for 1 week and has a lot more tiers in the future (my opinion, not official)

    • They are right now still testing, in detail gathering data so they try different frequencies, durations & reward tiers in clan games to find a good balance between challenging (to not give books & potions out too easy) and yet still obtainable for smaller & less active clans (those who benefit most from these items).
      I agree with you that we probably see a week-long clan games sometime soon that will finally also reward the book of everything 🙂

  2. Great site ya got here… Helps alot… nice to see that u reply to every comment ( like some ppl post stuff but never go thru comments)… Thnx for the info abt the Christmas update… Good job (again)

  3. Anyone else having issues with clan games???? Whenever I go to click start the button goes from green to grey back to green again….. it won’t let me start a challenge!!!! I am like the only one in my clan that hasn’t completed one!!

    • Yes sone do have this problem i got several reports it seems to be a bug that some have.
      Or dis you finish a challenge in another clan and then went to your current clan by any chance?

  4. This update is very much the same as the builder base..Complete waste of time. Needed to find a way to reduce the wait times for legend league..Can’t even find a base to attack..Stuck in the clouds. Very disappointed.

      • Find a way to make it more attractive to progress to a higher league. Again today after a half hour in the clouds I get a message unable to find an opponent. No way to attack to get loot to do the new upgrades. There needs to be a way to find opponents to get loot. Only option is to drop trophies, which means trophies are virtually useless if most people drop them to get to lower leagues so they can loot to earn resources. Funny thing is now I can’t even drop to a lower league because I can’t find an opponent to attack. I really like this game…I enjoyed it more at th9….Because trophies mean nothing to most players, staying at th9 is what I’ve done with another account I have…Again fun game, I really enjoy it, but a little frustrated at the moment..

      • Jap clouds are bad but right bow they are worst for everyone. I also would love to see that trophy ranks are worth more and it would be super easy if they would make a price at the end of season depending on your standing or highest trophy count during the season (resources gems magical items etc) to incentivize pushing at least a little bit

      • 1 more thing, even though my heroes are maxed…or near maxed now. I’d like to see everyone be able to war with all heroes even if they are being updated. It would make for bigger wars…I’m sure you’ve heard both sides of this …

      • Yes I would also love to, i think for that reason they introduced the magical book that will help you skip the upgrade right away. Still not like using them while upgrading but at least a workaround here and there

      • I would also like troops that don’t die in a raid be returned to the army camp with the ability to choose from all troops that have been trained to use in the next attack

      • Issue I have with the clouds is after I search for 5-10 minutes it gives me a Titan base anyway with only 6 available trophies. Why not just offer those quicker or is Titan bad for searching too? It wasn’t last time I was down there but that was 6 months ago.

      • Update – I’m at 5224 cups. Last 10 attacks in log are all bases below 5000 with lowest at 4498 and highest at 4918. most in 4500 to 4600 cups. Personally though I thought clouds were actually better this week. Depends on time of day. Saturday and Sunday mornings US east coast time are horrible. Usually can never find an opponent after 3-4 trys.

  5. Any thoughts on Clan Games Update so far? Im personally very disappointed in this update. Its basically just more of the same thing as personal challenges but clans can acrue points towards a goal. My clan is a war clan and all this update seemed to do was nerf defenses amd buff offenses (if you thought LavaLoon was META before, just wait). These balances are supposed to encourage TH9s going to TH10 but they just made TH10 weaker. Im thinking of pushing to TH11 now and only upgrading Army camps for extra spaces. I hate engineering but if you cant beat em, join em. The addition of the BH was a much more impressive update in my opinion. Im personally much more impressed with updates to Clash Royale that COC over the past year.

    • I understand that hardcore war clans are not very pleased with this update, but try to see the big picture for the future…
      Clan Games & Magical Items is just the start and there is many room for enhancement like different magical items etc. and even limited time decoration and much more.
      Also they have (don’t know where exactly I heard/read it) the plan to also let clans compete against each other in Clan Games, so there will come a lot more in the future.
      I’m also no big fan of nerfing Inferno Towers, but this seems the direction we’re heading right now and if that will help get more people get to TH10 it’s not the worst thing to do, isn’t it?

      • Please do something about wait times. Finding a base to attack is near impossible. Can’t take part in the new clan games, making it useless to me. Why get to legend league? No reason for it. After you base is maxed all there is are wars. The rest of the game is useless. Would have been better to stay at th9…

      • But nerfing Infernos plus buffing Lava hound, golem, etc just made TH10 more insignificant. I have 3 towns, 2 x TH10 and 1 x TH9. This makes me think i should stay at TH9 or push to th11 just for offense benefit. Th10 is just the middle child now. I’m probably going to push my th10s to th11 now but be more of a th10.5 or th10.25 (if that is a thing). Im not going to add EA or any other defense. Not exactly how i wanted to play the game though. As for clan games, well… Its great if you have loads of time to do random attacks/farming etc but i really dont. So not sure if my clan will even participate much in this new update. Thus, very undetwhelming at best

  6. I have collected 500 points for my clan. If I leave my clan now will I get to choose the prizes when I return to the same clan & Will that clan keep my 500 clan games’ points or those points will go to the clan in which i’ll be when the event ends?
    I know these r a little lengthy questions
    But i’m hoping for answers from u Tim buddy😄

    • No you won’t be able to do clan games in multiple clans. You can leave your clan and enter a new one and when you return to your old clan, your old score is still up (even if you have an active challenge in your old clan you can continue finishing it).
      TLDR; You can leave your clan and re-enter without any penalty 🙂

    • what gift do you mean? If you mean the gifts from the santa strike spell, you can simply tap them like the tombstones – but your village has to get attacked first by a player that uses the santa strike spell…

  7. I see they have no iPhone X screen optimization with this update. Is there any more info about that or when it may by coming?

  8. i am currently at th 10[max] and thought of upgrading to th 11 . these new updates have motivated me more to upgrade to th 11

    • I’m not 100% sure if they will bring the Ice Wizard again TBH, maybe they even bring another seasonal troop that’s completely new… however, I think it will be around Christmas (this weekend or next week) when the first seasonal event starts

  9. Tim do you think reducing x-bows and nerfing infernos will lead to more engineered bases since it seems there will be no reason to have them? I hope this doesn’t lead to more loopsided wars.

    • General Logic points toward it, but I hope they also reduced the weight of the IT in the matchmaking – I’m on it checking everything out but there’s a ton of new stuff I have to keep an eye on right now.
      My feeling says they have this covered somehow, this discussion is ongoing for a long time and it would be just extremely amateur from Supercell to not have that in mind. Also, they are working with 80% data so I’m sure they have their reason for doing this (maybe also removing the extremely heavy defenses to make engineering less effective)

    • Fix = Repairing something that is broken. Due to the fact that there has never been a 6th Builder, you should use the word “add” 😉
      I would rather see reduced upgrade times instead 😀

  10. Desire for a extra builder which will just upgrade walls…..sometimes storage gets full and we have to buy flags with soo much loss soo plz Can u fix this in another upgrade may be in next year but plz do it…..☺

  11. come on i just upgrade my x bow to lvl 3 and here’s they reduce the damage less 10… LOL super cell.If someone ask me “what you wish for next update ?”….my answer will be somethings like that -once a week super cell member should read the “”fair play and respective”” term .

    • They always do, you can expect some seasonal troop, trap & spell and in between a 1 Gem Resource Boost and also a 1 Gem Army Boost as well (at least that was the procedure in the past years) 🙂

  12. Time to wreck th10s with my th9 and push to titans! Using GOHO with heal….muahahahahahahaha. Inferno nerf is bad because it makes freeeze completely useless.

  13. I find this inferno nerf F***ing ridiculous. SO YOU NOW ARE GIVING TH 9 AN OPPORTUNITY TO 2 STAR A TH 11… HOW BROKEN IS THAT. Everything else about the update seems fine…
    SuperCell needs to seriously rethink the Inferno nerf cause they WILL loose players if that breaks the game.
    Practically you are making the Inferno the most useless defence a Th 10+ can have if it doesnt negate healing.

    Alot of people will be very annoyed if this happens.

    • Yeah I also have very mixed feelings about it and really hope that this turns out to be a good decision, but we’ll all have to wait and see I guess there’s not much we can do about it… Also I hope they will reduce the war weight of the Inferno Tower due to this change otherwise this will bring the lopsided base discussion to a whole new level

  14. If you really want to stop discouraging people, rather than making TH 10 & 11 easier, you should work on pairing people better. The number one complaint I hear among clashers is that as a TH 9, 90% of the time they get TH10s and even 11s when searching for a battle. And as a TH 10, you almost always get TH11s. Often times maxed TH 11s. You should change the game so that 90% of the battles that come up are your own TH level. I know several people who have quit playing because of this issue.

    • I remember that they worked on that quite a while ago and I get like one TH10 as TH11 in Titan II or III every 50-100 matchups. Of course there are enough TH11 that Next until have found a TH10.
      Bottom line what I‘m saying is that the matchups also focus on trophy count and reworking the reward system of the leagus should motivate all the th10 and th11 to move to the league they belong to and not hang around in Master League etc

    • That still happens to me as a TH10 after you hit Champion 3. I’m in Titan 3 now but at least I get a 2 hour shield. They need to fix the trophy system where I don’t lose 27 trophies because a TH11 with max heroes and troops can 3* me. If I win against a TH11 I’ll sometimes only net 2-9 trophies but risk losing 30+.

  15. Hi Tim thanks for the daily sneak peeks and rumors you provide really helped a lot of curious minds in my clan. Hoping all the waiting for the mystery “Q” and Clan Games is worth it. Keep it up cheers 👍😁

  16. Hey I just had a couple thoughts towards the inferno nerf just to throw an idea out there. So I guess I’m indifferent about the nerf on the inferno tower. I think it will make defense for th10/11 significantly less, but I think they could make this into something that could be good.
    I think that if they do take away the healing effect of the Inferno, they should increase the DPS and maybe add a 3rd IT to th11.
    Also instead of completely taking away healing and making 1 party happy and the other long time clashers done with the game, maybe look to reduce healing by 50%.

    Thanks for your time and really look forward to the updates

    • Yeah I‘m also pretty concerned about the IT healing removal… on ine side you are now able to 3-Star but I also think that defensing Th10/11 will be almost impossible… on the other hand hog rider will become a lot more used at TH10/11. Hatd to tell what‘s going to happen, hopefully SC doesn‘t destroy the balancing completely

      • This is bad ,really bad ( maybe ) .Removing anti healing effect will ruin the IT. Both IT and Freeze will be lost. And we will see increase in healing spell & yes ,hogggg ridddder.

      • I can feel you, but try to stay positive. Just seing the same biwler withch laloon style attacks can use some alternatives and finally it makes sense that there have been 2 additional hog levels in the recent updates 😊

  17. Hey Tim,I M happy to back in COC .Heroes costs r reduced ! That’s great . Waiting for the update.
    Emoji’s in comments section r too big.

  18. Darian[Supercell]
    There are no sneak peeks today. But we have more sneak peeks yet to come
    i got this message from darian when i talking to him

    • Darian Said No New Troop Coming or New Defence Building.
      Except if they will be pushing down some defence to lower th.
      Like th9 getting one inferno.

  19. The inferno adjustment Is a great deal.
    I mean this defence makes situation worst.
    A Th10 cannot get up to 70% from TH11 initially without super skills.
    I am on Th10 and inferno stops me from climbing up the league to titan and legend.
    Now we can see more players going up.
    I love the miner adjustment… They should not forget hogs too.
    Inferno is almost useless now.
    I will like its range being adjusted to be longer…and maybe its DPS to 50 for multiples on lvl 4.
    Freeze will be useless now.
    Miners will return
    Hogs will rerurn
    Goblins will return.
    Bowlers will return.
    And Queen Charge will be almost everybody thing.
    We will see more th9 attacking th10 n even daring th11.
    The update is accepted for me.

  20. In less they fix this war matchmaking problem that just keeps getting worse I dont really care what they bring to this game anymore. Starting to feel like government red tape they study the problem to death but fix nothing trying to please everyone.

  21. @AJ_PRO =>(The guy down there, since I cannot reply directly to you ☺)

    It’s just a few less miners to fill your camps. Do the maths and see for yourself sir!!

    Minus the inferno healing effect plus good funneling, I might as well plunder your core.

    They are only and mostly good for “FARMING -> DE”
    I wouldn’t take them on a full scale clan war attack 😋
    With those few lines I say; Miners, Yayyyyyyyyy………

    PS: Sorry for bad English

  22. I am hoping that inferno nerf will not affect the ongoing war.If update comes in between war than those attacking late may get unfair advantage over those attacking earlier.

  23. I am at th 9, really growing much faster.but they are making game more big. I am just looting all the day to upgrade fucking queen to 30. But they giving more and more levels.same for troops.My friends say one day will come when this game will die or it will have lvl 100 heros haha. Its kinda disgusting.better if the try to elongate smaller townhalls rather than elongating th11 a lottttt.🤔

  24. Well, there’s goes any “difficulty” to 3 star th11’s. I’m in legend league hitting max th11 bases with bitched attack and lvl 2 witches…. and getting the 3 star. Only time I find It difficult is on war bases but with added camp space and more hero levels that won’t be a problem. Although I feel the golem and hound increased HP for lower levels doesn’t seem needed. Th10 and 11 players have wellpast lvl 3 golem if they aren’t rushed. Mass miners will still be a thing for farming DE, guess I’m glad I maxed them recently their slightly cheaper then dragloon. Added camp space allows for another dragon in dragloon attack so with clone spell max that will be an easy 3 star strat against th11 especially if we can heal those bastards under inferno fire. Sounds to me like they want to give the rushed th11 guys who never caught up to max th10’s that went th11 a chance. Remember when th11 dropped and a majority of players anywhere from th8-10 just jumped right up there for the warden? Some of them are still playing catch up. Almost seems like this is for them. Infernos should block healing abilities and I won’t be surprised for them to revert back from that very quickly. 1 extra space for miners with additional 20 overall space won’t change much regarding them so not exactly a nerf. Although xbows dealing less damage… that one I don’t agree with. Let’s see how things go after the update drops. Save your elixir and open your builders kids. Time to push 4 camps lol

      • Because now that infernos won’t negate healing a queen charge and mass miners with mostly heals and a rage or two for AQ. Simply take out the EA early in the raid and there’s nothing left to really stop miners from trashing a base. And their count going from 5 housing to 6 is due to the additional camp space available at th11. With 20 more housing you only really lose 2-3 miners from previous count.

  25. Magic items r what? Is this ur question no problem I’ll explain what I know… The first thing is base boost item it can boost our base.. The next is new weapon magic item that can give our troops new weapon.. Like barbs shield… If u play farmville 2 u can find power pins these r like magic items am I right reply me Timmy bro

  26. Tim, just wanted to say what a great job you have done over the years. Been following your site for a while now. Was a slightly rushed th9 when I first started checking out allclash. Im now a max th11 with not much do to lol. 😁. Builder base has been a nice addition in my opinion. I need more max walls to do lol. Anyways keep up the good work.

  27. bro contact form is not working fr me if I click it won’t show any contact form can I pls mail @ your email plsss it is a private talk pls pls pls bro

    • The idea has a lit of potential and should have been in the game way earlier – the success now just depends on how creative the tasks are (hopefully not just how many stars earned in HV and BB attacks) and the rewards. I really hope they prepared some incentive soecial rewards and not only resources that we can win 🙂

  28. no problem bro.pls bro can I mail u I m looking forward for great relationship with u please only 5to 10minutes per day after I success surely I’ll give you credit.pls I wan’t help tips.I won’t trouble u promise

  29. bro pls y deleted link im your always visitor and subscriber y did u edit link ,in comment im looking forward for greater relationship with u ,for some reason i cnt explain everything here ill mail u pls kindly reply me and i want everybody to know about ,it i don’t want any money but all must know this thing . pls watch .i helped u also .i was in forum whole day there was no info posted .hey nice post bro

  30. PLS see this. Timmy and others important update is it linked with builder left in next update see here

    • There isn’t IMO… the Builder “Holiday” was just a promotion thing for the 5th anniversary, nothing more and I doubt that Supercell plans that much ahead. They work on one update at a time and release it when it’s finished – they have been telling this a couple of times 🙂

  31. Looking in dictionary for the letter word Q.But imo i wont be that much impressed if they give quests…its not that kind a big deal…for me…actually.

    • No it will focus on clan. Reply me r they going release a stuff like clan chest in clash royale ? When will they release sneak peak???

      • I’d be very surprised if there wouldn’t be some new defense/troop levels though 🙂
        I personally think we get some info this week since I don’t think they want to make the update after next week (they are on holiday beginning christmas anyway…)

  32. Just leaved playing COC ,,for a while,(Switched to clash royale) .Both games r awsm but COC Really need some new content . Otherwise many players will leave playing it. BTW I don’t know why some players hate BB.

    • It’s mostly the people who haven’t figured out that the only way to progress is to push trophies. So many reg base players are just farmers and it’s a whole new concept to push to be able to farm. If I had never done a push on main base I would hate builder base too. Only just went BH7 recently and waiting for fifth army camp so I can break the 3200 range. Haven’t been able to once I go against players with the extra camp and giant cannon. Especially when that thing is leveled up, when I go air raids it usually helps but a good anti air base and I’m sitting scratching my head on an attack strategy lol usually always around 60% 1 star with a Knick of health left on builder hall. Once my camp finishes I should be able to solidly two star 70%+ using mass baby drags, I also play with boxer giant and cannon cart. Or mass witches. My second account I did beta minion so half baby drag and half beta minion aren’t too bad either. All depends on the players abilities to adapt. Some are great at adapting and others just don’t reach the capability. Also builder base AI is hard to judge so lots of times the raid fails early due to a slight miscalculation, I find raiding th11’s in main base easier then builder base attacks lol

      • At BH7 there are only 2 working attacking strategies right now, Bombers & Barbs is what hits my base like 80% of the time (4200-4800 trophies) and I personally use 2 army camps Night Witches and 3 Army Camps Beta Minions and get 60-70% 2 Stars in 90% of all raids, so that’s what your upgrade order in your Lab should be 🙂

      • Barbs were definitely gonna be my main focus, I’ll have to pop by into your guide for bombarian strategy soon lol final army camp will be done tomorrow then using builder to start giant cannon and gonna try to push over my 3200 limit 😂 I rushed to BH6 but sat there till just the other day and almost have everything (except walls obviously) maxed out and was wasting elixir. I’ve heard the battle machine additional levels aren’t great? So thinking once I start getting into those longer upgrade times and have some excess elixir I may put him down but having a lvl 10 already I’m not putting him very high on priority list at all. New Xmas tree is looking awesome, can’t wait for sneak peeks to start getting released.

      • here comes the hogman bringing together a plastic bottle with a hole in bottom of it made by the nose of pekka which was already too frustrated catching butterflies alongwith a skeleton of charge 9.03 coulombs and finally i think that the sentence ends

  33. Based off of past December updates they usually fall around the 14th or 15th of the month. And more prodiminately on the Thursday. So hoping to see sneak peeks starting tomorrow and possibly the update to drop on Thursday Dec 14. Wishful thinking with a little insight 😉

  34. Hey Tim, did u closed(or stopped working at that) your Clash Royale site.
    There r no new Post’s or guides.
    Sorry for bad eng.

  35. Hey tim… I don’t know if you people have noticed it or not… But with the additional names added in the single player campaign map there is something more that might was not there before…
    You see at the first level (payback) there is an another prescribed path along the lake of pekka… Are we going to an another realm fit clashing just see it…

    • Pretty sure that path going up is from the TH towards the first level and something that was used in the tutorial….. I could be wrong though

    • There are different opinions, including that this new map was only activated accidentally by Supercell with no connection to the upcoming update since the new names etc have been in the game files since 2013… we can only wonder for now and see what the upcoming update will bring

  36. Well inactive clans will die off. And active ones will benefit if it is in fact “clan quests” and I don’t see how they can create any sort of reward for a clan since clan perks won’t be expanded. Basically clan quests would be another method of gaining loot or gems and honestly neither of those would appeal to the max th11’s or players who have almost maxed more then one account. I’m still very much hopeful for something amazing. As there have been past updates that got the community active again. But we’ve also had some duds. (Minor tweaking, or the worst of all…. miner “bug fix” that wasn’t mentioned to be happening and pissed off a majority of spammers who couldn’t attack properly) overall supercell may not voice their opinion or future plans but with the hit and miss scenarios of the past. I feel this update is in the time frame of a “hit” and should be something pretty awesome. Clan quests could be interesting depending on how they play it. Also could be a total waste of their development time for the past few months. But just before th11 I remember people speculating of a “goblin king” so I’m assuming it will be such as boom beach had (didn’t play it much but remember hitting a “boss”) where clans need to bring players together and defeat an opponent boss, aka goblin king. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. And if anything I mentioned becomes what’s added. But overall I’m excited and hopeful, most of my hope is that they bring the update soon enough that they have time for tweaking and re working in case it brings further balance issues with whatever new mechanic they are implementing in game. And most of my hope is set in war matchmaking. Our last one or two wasn’t too terrible but I would prefer to be able to start a war and not wonder how many engineered accounts are gonna be on the opposing side.

    • Yap they need to find a way to make the new clan features work also for newer clans or otherwise nobody will start a new clan because nobody will join at all.
      I like the idea that some achievements should be hard to earn and long-term rewards but if that in return excludes new clans/players it’s not worth it. Bottom line they have been talking about this so many times that I have my hopes up that they found a way that will work out for both fractions, the new and the veteran players & clans.
      Matchmaking on the other side is something I really don’t believe is something they can fix unless changing the whole system radically – they’ve been simply waiting at least 12 months too long until starting to address this and now they can only piss off one side or the other

  37. If supercell doesn’t give th12 in this update then I don’t think game is going to stand on the mark coz this year after all under rated so called updates has given nothing new to older or new comers.lets hope supercell doesn’t spoil all hopes!

    • Aditya K.,

      If TH12 is launched this year, I personally think there will be more unhappy people than happy…
      Darian said in his informational video that TH12 wouldn’t come till earliest next Summer. So, I wouldn’t set your expectations too high for TH12.

  38. How about removing the Builder base from the game? Let’s face it!!! It is a HUGE waste of time. AI is bad! Concept is bad! If you are upgrading a major defensive structure, you can spend hours losing and and getting perfect tie’s. Why make people wait 5ish minutes for every loss??? Sometimes they give horrible machups and you have to wait 5 more minutes to try again! They could try using some brain power and make the game more fair! How about a partial star for ties??? or make the wait time decrease after every loss/tie??? Better yet, just remove the builder base all together.
    -Kinda Pissed at how Stupid the builder base component is

    • Then don’t click the ship.

      Just because YOU don’t like it doesn’t mean some other people don’t.

      I for one came back to clash because of the BB. And I enjoy it. Yes the AI sucks. Yes the wait time between matches is just plain stupid. But I still enjoy BB more than just grinding main base to no end.

    • The problem Supercell faces is that they can’t please us all. I like the builder base. But I don’t like those stupid new levels each time. Archer tower level 15, pekka lvl 6, queen level 45….shut up.
      The truth is, nobody forces you to play the builder base and nobody forces me to upgrade my archer towers to level 15. Overall, the game is still free ware and fun after more than 5 years. And that’s more than most other online games can claim.

  39. guys builder base 8 is already there only thing is its locked megatesla level 8 tesla and mortor gearup etc are all packed for an update th12 is possible with new defense and hero i guess(i wish)

    • Are you dumb? It was implemented in the game since Bh came out…….BH 6-8 was out but Supercell didn’t “unlock” it for us yet. And if you know how to read and write, it says up above that Bh8 isn’t coming out this update and th12 isn’t either…. (for a long time)

  40. This update hype is just as the one we’ve experienced earlier in the may this year .That builders base demolished our expectations, ruined our suspense, and sucked the fun out of every single evidence found .
    I checked allclash every single hour (honestly) and I’m doing the same now.
    But yet ,brace yourselves this one must be good..

    • If there will be some really well-working additional stuff for clans coming, including a new way that will make clans gather together something in order to unlock something else, I’m sure this will be a big relief.
      I believe SC thought if they implement a lot of long-term requests they couldn’t fit into our Home Village (Gem Mine, Clock Tower, Versus Battles, Night Mode…) into the game by making a second base will make many of us happy but bottom line that wasn’t the truth so they were pretty much empty-handed during late summer when they realized that the Builder Base wasn’t the big shot they believed they created…
      bottom line I have my hopes up that this update will finally make something great 🙂

  41. Why do clan castle troop donations not count towards your donation count? Also, I feel like they should incorporate a “net gain” of some sort for winnings while attacking

    • I assume you mean war castles for prep day being filled. I mentioned something and all I got was “without giving donations or any bonus for filling clan castles on prep day it’s helps to incentivize low level players not to just drop a crap tonne of troops (like all giants) into everyone’s clan castle on the war map for an easy way to level up and have higher donations” kinda a: it sucks to fill them but better they get filled with good troops and most of the time it’s the high level players who are nearer to the end and don’t really need much more incentive other then having strong defensive troops to battle and bother the opposing attacker. So overall it makes sense. In a higher level clan you still do get your donation refund and at lvl 10 clan I believe it’s 50% so not too terrible. And as a th11 player with max heroes and nothing to spend DE on while lab is busy for two weeks straight and it takes 4 days to fill my storage. I tell my clan mates leave any DE requested troop so I can dump some of it. but the problem that arises is not with players like me. But with the clans that are starting out or lower level and have players th9 or lower who have trouble not only filling them, but getting members to help out with filling them as well. But ultimately supercells decision so I left it at that.

  42. Is there any news regarding the maintenance break we seen this morning? (Nov 29, 2017) i figure it has something to do with adding info to the game file for the next update. Hopefully some of the community players who know how have extracted game file info to see if we can get a sneak peek before supercell implements their own lol

  43. I admit I am an old man. I have ‘toyed’ around with CoC for several years, hardly ever raiding, never a clan war, just something to do.
    However, since the Builder’s Base came along, I have been an AVID player. I really enjoy the challenge of plotting an attack on a base you are looking at for the first time and deciding what troops to use and how to successfully attack this unique base!

  44. Maybe a new loading screen I have seen in the videos of VoV Vowson. Or if it starts with Q, then it must have something to do with the Queen.

    • The queen is clearly the most powerful (troop) in the game. I really don’t see her getting a buff in the next update since no one has complained about anything besides her AI at times. Quests are more likely as it’s been requested by the community since before clash royale became a reality. And knowing supercell, Queens AI won’t be changed. Not for the better anyways 😂

  45. War matchmaking is a joke. The 15-15 wars that have max offense TH11’s as their #13-14 ranked bases is a scam. When you have a #13 3starring a #4 there is a problem. They must buy a lot of gems because it’s ridiculous that SC would seem to encourage that kind of war clan. Since war balancing updates started we have been going against more engineered clans than ever. Our war record has dropped from 70% win record before war matchup balancing updates started to 40%. It’s not a coincidence.
    IMO – TH levels should count substantially In war weight, That would encourage players to completely max their bases on offense and defense before moving up to next level. Or make it so you have to max out certain defenses before you can move up.
    Also SC should reward clans in war for using all of their attacks, like extra %. So for instance in event of a tie, the team that used all their attacks would win over a team that didn’t. This would help with dead bases that are just used to fill in to lower war weight, bases that don’t even participate in any function of the game besides as filler base for war.
    And why not allow 7-7, 8-8 and so forth war sizes ? There’s enough players worldwide to get matchups with any size war. That way we wouldn’t have to use dead bases just to get to required number or drop players that want to war.

    • It’s set with a rule of 5, 10, 15 etc so it can narrow down matches already. If we went individual like 7v7 or 8v8 there would be less likelihood of matches with similar bases and war weights (not saying it’s good now). But using low accounts as a filler is more for the sake of if you know someone won’t attack would you add another th10 in a war ranging from th8-11? Probably not cause it adds another base and you already lost 2 solid attacks for either clean up or scouting. It is what it is and it sucks sometimes. But you gotta deal with it. Chances are if you change your war lineup to only th10-11 for one war then th9-10 for another or something similar you could help your matches. I know when we do 15v15 and only have th9-11 in war we get a better match then say if we do th8-11 in a 10v10. Range of TH levels and number of players in the war helps or hurts matchmaking greatly. Tightening up your war roster is currently the only thing I’ve found that helps. We tried a 5v5 of th10-11 exclusive and with 3 11’s and 2 10’s we were matched to 3 11’s a 9 and a 10. Pretty fair match as our lowest th10 is fairly new to it and their th9 was fully maxed with mediocre heroes. They considered it a loss off the hop and didn’t attack but our side only 3 starred the th9 and left a th11 with 1 star giving them a chance to 2 star everyone and winning by % had they tried. Not the greatest match but about as good as I’ve seen them lately. As for TH having a higher war weight I agree. Focus on TH and warden specifically cause all the engineered players go there for him and his eternal tomb. Luckily most engineers have one or two attack strategies maxed so if you properly evaluate your opponent and get your clan active in changing war bases to be anti-air when the engineers have max drags and zap quake upgrades but nothing else it should start tipping the tables your way. But I feel adding weight to the TH and warden will help most people who haven’t engineered be deterred from doing so. And those who have will just have to work harder or spend more to make their base what they need for a chance to have their advantage back. Either way engineers are an issue and supercell has always said there’s the way they intended the game to be played. Then there’s the way you choose to play. To each his own. Personally I’m on the look for a fair play clan involved in league wars so I don’t have to worry so much about engineers or try to spend extra time on prep day planning around them and then hoping the clan takes my advice.

  46. I am pretty sure its QUESTS since darian said many have been requesting it for a while! and it does add a dynamic to the game and starts with ‘Q’ !

    • No they shouldn’t because a lot of kids play clash of clans and kids take huge risks but cant handle losses so when a kid decides to try and get a lot of gems and it goes south, guess how much shit coc will get from parents.

  47. Out of curiosity. Do you know if the maintenance break this morning (wed nov 15) was the one introducing 5v5 clan war size and warden increased war weight? It did say in the news feed it was coming in the next maintenance break and we’re currently in a war so waiting to see if it’s active when our war ends. Ill update here if it’s possible in case you haven’t found out yet or no one else comments letting us know. Be nice since our last 2 10v10 had extra th11 on their side then our bottom was a th7, th8 and 2 th9’s. While the opposing clans both had 3 max th9’s on the bottom of their roster. For two wars in a row. We admitted defeat last war with one th10 still holding 2 attacks and down by 6. This war has only just begun to play out but recently the number of engineered accounts holding grand warden has caused us issues in war matches. We won 5 in a row despite the unmatched advantage but their clan only had dragloon upgraded so I informed the clan to set anti air designs and we came out on top. Until this last war where 6 of our attacks were useless against the defensive strength of the opponent. Despite two th11 dips for 6 stars in the war. Bottom wasn’t cleaned and caused our loss. But looking forward to maxing heroes on my th11 and getting back into wars, currently 43 BK down to 44 now, 45 AQ, and 17 warden down to 18. Warden is a couple days, BK just started, so about 3 weeks and I’ll be back warring and having decent possible matches would be nice lol hoping full December update holds more for clan war matchmaking.

    • 5v5 was available but we did 10v10, war match wasn’t great, two th11 on our side, with 2 th7 at the bottom with 1 th8 and two th9 the last 3 th10. Opponent team had 1 th11…. 1 th9….. and the rest th10. Instead of th11 engineered accounts were facing th10 engineered accounts. So if grand warden weight change made any difference I don’t know yet lol

  48. Betting gems in a friendly challenge would be fun. Clans being able to set up some tournaments in main village or bb could jazz things up. Being able to have clans form teams or associations and face off against others in wars would be fun. No interest in a new troop. New war size is nice touch but hope we significantly more than just that.

    • Betting gems is a stupid idea. You want to change this fair game into gamble. Another bad thing is ,players can get lots of gems by creating two,three, or more account and losing Battle ,so there main account got gems.


    • This will never ever in a lifetime come… this would open the coc world to third party gem traders and even more scamming services.
      Although tournaments are a thing that could be interesting 🙂

  49. Since prob not a new th lvl, maxed th 11s need something to spend loot on. I.e. all lvl walls, new troops, more or higher defense, heroes to lvl 50 is bound to come but when is sc doing it? The Oct update was a joke as th11s have all ready upgraded all sc offered, and without gems. Sc needs to remember what got the where they r today…it’s not hay day, bb, bldr village, it’s the MAIN VILLAGE

    • Why you say “prob no new th lvl”? 😀 It’s 100000% sure there won’t be a new one in 2017 and not anywhere near at all.
      Otherwise I agree as I also have only a few walls and cannon upgrades left and would need some new stuff to do. I think SC did not see the fact coming that so many doesn’t enjoy and focus on the BB…

      • stopped playing for 6 month this year th11 still maxed after going up as max th10 last nov , not enough content at th11 golems ,hogs mainly a waste of time due to eagle /inferno . Eagle not powerful enough ( still look at infernos /queen /cc placement ) BB matches are a load of rubbish. Th11 attacks mainly bowlers or air combo s , this update a make or break for me!

  50. It may sound stupid but I hope they give us nothing with the Christmas update 🙂
    With every update I feel like Alice in Wonderland. Not yet there and a new update getting me further away again.

      • I just want a coliseum…. tournament based wars you can opt your clan into with set bases, for obvious reasons it would lock your clan from regular wars and those not opted in at the start of the competition would not be able to war until said competition ended or your clan was defeated and removed from the competition. But it would allow a much easier way of doing “arranged wars”. Search time for those could be much more difficult and I imagine it would be a couple days to gather enough evenly matched clans to create an entire tournament roster but it could also be set so you have to have “X” number of th11’s, th10’s etc. that is the one thing I want to see in clash of clans over anything else. Basically arranged wars without the hours and hours of required homework to set it up. Maybe we can push this idea to the dev team and get it by next christmas 😁

  51. Due to my work schedule, I never get to revenge an attacker, unless I want to sacrifice my shield. Coc should make something to where you can revenge your attacker without some stupid penalty.

    • Just gonna say if you go raid normally, you lose a portion of your shield. So a revenge attack is the same. You don’t completely lose your shield. It follows the same criteria. First attack 3 hours and second 4 then 5 etc. if you’ve done one attack since your shield was earned then doing a revenge will be your second attack and cost you 4 hours. Be glad this system was implemented. I remember back in the day when hitting search initially left you without a shield even if you didn’t attack anyone. The downside of the revenge button for higher league players is your likely to never find any of your revenge attacks available due to minimal time between shield break and when a multi guy decides to hit your base for either loot or trophies. Since hitting Titan I’ve never been hit on revenge or been able to do one. I gave up on that button since champs league.

  52. I think they should fix it so a maxed th11 can give it loot to another base. That way it benefits the clan. We would have stronger clans this way. I also think we should not have to play against a engineered base let them play their own kind.

  53. I think it would be cool to have a whole other base that you can start anew. You can basically begin playing the game all over again, while still maintaining your first base…Just an idea i like

    • I also think they should add a map to the boat and have more places to travel to and bases to make like the builder base, and loot bases and cool features like that as well.

      • You do realize it’s possible to make another account right? Watch any of the supercell competitions and some players say they have th9 and th10 and a th11 account and will be playing on a max th11 for this competition. Android users need to make a new google play account and iPhone users need a new gamecenter account. I have a max th9 with 25/25 heroes and a th11 newer (about 4 months) previously completely max th10 with 43/44/17 heroes. Currently recruiting players th8+ active non rushed to join “the crusaders” #P82P0L2Y

    • can’t believe it, u need a third base . We already have two. Probably u have lots of time to play.

      I think they should add more goblin map’s with DE.

      • Totally agree, update the goblins map to get more DE. 2017 was not a great year for coc. They could do so much more if they wanted to..without coming up with builders base game. I am not surprise that only 35 % people play. In my clan of 45 people only 7 people play it continuously.

      • I think they should add a new goblin base which lasts for like 2 or 3 days and they should do that like every couple times a week so there is always single player loot available because even if they add new goblin maps, there are going to be people who beat them all and then they will have no more single player for a while. But if the bases come and go then theres always loot from single player as well as multiplayer.

  54. Instead of getting nothing in friendly challenges, in a December update we would have get any reward or betting money will be more interesting and interest to do some challenge with friends

  55. Well I don’t want Th12 this time (maybe at may,2018). Something we need is :
    2. A NEW TROOP

  56. kim jong un’s nuke will launch.. world war 3 will comin’ but you guys are still talking and playing this stupid game????


    Lord Jesus will coming.

    • Lord Jesus will come? That’s interesting. Lord Jesus as the new hero in coc. Walking over the water to the third village, I presume.
      Giok, please leave your dope alone and come back to Earth.

      • erwin: Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
        galatians 6:7

      • It wasn’t my intention to mock God king. Sorry if you feel it that way. I was mocking giok with his conspiration theory actually. And indeed, I don’t believe in the end of het world. I’m an optimistic person. You won’t come anywhere with dull thinking to my opinion.

  57. I think they will add something related to builder hall friendly challenges as it is the only thing in last update that can be extended

  58. supercell just needs to add more troops. that’s all I want in the game. I don’t care if 4 people are online, or new looking clan badges. I want to have more fun by trying new comps, and coc has so little variety its very sad. hopefully Christmas update is the big one. I don’t want to be disappointed like every update the past year or so.

    • I don’t know your TH lvl or exp lvl or whatnot. But from personal experience there’s currently a massive amount of army comp possibilities and new ones with the current troops keep getting discovered constantly. Also old compositions are getting minimal revival with small changes. Jump7go? Used to be 4 golem and wiz with jump spells to carry the army through the base, now same idea. 4-5 golem and basically all wiz with 4-8 hogs for back end. Same principle, new attack. The game is great if you are creative and not just going on YouTube and trying to mimic attacks you see on completely different layouts. Sounds like you need to revisit how to funnel and learn troops AI to be more viable with different troop combinations. Also th9+ all have a massive amount of options and anyone below shouldn’t be asking for new material or new troops. When I was TH7 we didn’t get a dark drill… and had to loot all our DE for King and all his upgrades! We older players have struggled through the original levels and now new members of the community are asking for new troops for th6-8…. it changes the balance of the entire game and would totally destroy everything supercell adjusted in recent years to be where we are today. No new troops needed. AI for builder base troops and heroes should be adjusted and a change for war matchmaking is desperately needed. Otherwise they can leave everything else. Give TH11 another 25 walls (cause we know they are adding them slowly to stretch out the life of th11) and work on the current problems before adding more content generating new problems and taking supercell employees away from fixing the current issues in game. Ranting a bit but I feel it’s all valid

  59. Okay i would like to know if it is a good idea to upgrade both my king and queen to lv13 at the same time or should i upgrade one at at time . I am a th9 btw

    • Are you able to win multiplayer battles without both of them? (depending on your troop level, trophy range etc…)
      I rather upgrade one by one to be able to attack during the upgrading period, but if you can do both without both of them go for it 🙂
      BTW I wrote a guide on Hero upgrading… CLICK HERE

    • Honestly if you have a decent army at th9 you can keep both heroes down indefinitely until they are max. I’m working on my second account pushing heroes at th9, I do a hero as soon as I have the DE to do so. If both heroes are down, you just be more picky about the base you plan to attack for loot. I use GoVaPe with bowlers in CC. Without either hero I can still destroy th9 bases and get the core down. If your serious about maxing your heroes at th9, or just sick of having them low and missing the 3 in war cause of 2-12% of the base being left heroes are the best answer. My only recommendation is if a hero has the ability upgrade coming next (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 etc..) then do that hero first, if your hero is 13 and you put it down to rest and have the DE to drop other hero but have minimal time remaining on the hero going to 14. Then wait and put the hero that awakes at 14 back to rest to go 15 to upgrade that special ability. Otherwise I go back and forth one for one with my heroes. Ps, I have a newer th11 with 43/43/17 heroes atm and queen is down, also th9 maxed except dark spells and heroes 25/25. I’ve also done another th9 with medium level heroes that I’ve been ignoring. Pushing walls and heroes gets old fast. Especially on multiple accounts.

  60. If you want a challenge play Call of Duty Heroes. COC is good for quick plays but CODH takes more strategy and time.

  61. I think 2017 was a great year for Clash of Clans. I don’t know why you guys are upset. IMO, 2017 is the year when CoC came back to life. I am just loving the game now. I have a daily routine and in that routine, there is a specific time set only for CoC ! I quitted Clash Royale mostly because it became boring but CoC is also another reason. Hope that future will be more good !

    • If you enjoy the Builder Base, yeah then it was 🙂 but that was the ONLY big new thing that we got and according to multiple polls only 35% of the players play the BB heavily and 20% don’t even play it at all so you see that a big part haven’t been seing that much new stuff plus the fact that matchmaking and clouds are still a big issue that got rather worst than better…
      Also SC promised a Home Village Update after the August Update part with BH6 and all we got was some few new levels, a new clan badge looking – that drustrating for many but the december update might be the big comeback we all need 🙂

  62. Something good.

    Is that something similar to the dog shit they call builders base?

    Fixing AI?

    Fixing war match making?

    Anything Darian says can be pretty much ignored.
