Clash of Clans Events

Clash of Clans has started hosting frequent in-game events where you can easily get a lot of extra resources, XP and Gems.

On this page, I will show you all about the current and upcoming events and give you some help to get more out of these events. Some of them only offer XP and Gems, but you can get a lot more out of it with discounted troops and the right strategy.

You can always see the current event, in game, in the news center in Clash of Clans:

Pro Tip! You can actually EARN a lot of resources without even participating in the events. Simply queue up the troop that is on discount before the event ends and then remove them after the event is over. You will get the full price refunded and only 10% investment.

Not having the event troop? Those of you not having unlocked the troop featured int he current event will see a very low number needed to also unlock the gems for the event reward – you can also get it donated into your Clan Castle to participate!

Clan War Event

April 7th to April 18th, 2017

Clan War has been introduced exactly 3 years ago, so we’re celebrating the 3rd anniversary of it today (and for the next 10 days) by getting 3x the XP for our clans in Clan War.

We’re not just celebrating with the additional Clan XP, there’s also a Value Pack available in the shop rewarding 125,000 Dark Elixir when buying 1200 Gems plus the Clan Gift Packs that will give your clan mates some free Gems if you purchase them.

Supercell also released a new video regarding this anniversary:

Please keep in mind, that your clan needs to finish the war within this events duration to get the 3x bonus XPs.

For me, it’s a very important anniversary as I started this website shortly before the release of Clan Wars and the Clan War Update brought me the first frequent visitors here.

So when looking back, Clan War has been through a progress in the past 3 years. Here are some funny things to remember:

  • When released 2014, there was no dedicated War Base so we needed to always change our base on Preparation Day
  • It wasn’t possible to release troops from the Clan Castle

In the past year we got the Friendly War Feature to set up Clan Wars against a desired opponent and the CWL (Champions War League) raised.

CWL - The Champions War League in Clash of Clans (Week #4 Standings)

I’m looking forward to see what the future will bring.

UPDATE! Clan War Event EXTENDED for 1 more day!

    • WEll, I described you a way that gained me that much and if you follow that guide I wrote step by step properly you’re also able to get free gems (it might be less depending on the country you’re living in, but still you can get free gems)…

  1. Pls update a new th12 and new troops and spells and Valkyrie of level 5 has very high hitpoints so decrease it pls

    • If you gear up a defense in your Home Village (Archer Tower, Double Cannon…) the Master Builder from your Builder Base will use it to come over to your Home Village 🙂

  2. I wand lava hound and haste spell event and loon and this my clan #gcppqprv I am clan leader my name king of gopi

  3. I want one gem bost barrack event for shorter time
    its a easy to push up
    easy to collect de gold and exiler
    i hope ur next event is that also

    • the boost event around january was not doing well as it took waiting in cloud times to a crazy new level (20 mins and more), I’m not sure if Supercell want to do that again (and if I hope they do something about the clouds first) 🙂

  4. There’s a deal for 120k or so dark elixir and 1200 gems, my storage only holds 85k right now,. If I pay the ten bucks will it let me use 120k or am I going to get short changed?

  5. If the war we r presently in happens to end 1hr into the 3x event will we get credit for it or only after we start another war?

    • I think the end of the war is the moment when all gets calculated and accounted to your clan experience balance, so you peobly have to end in the time when it happens (BUT to be honest that’s just my common sense and I don’t know for 100%)

      • I asked supercell and they said if clan war ends during the event you gain the 3x experience

    • Get 3x Clan Experience Points for war – it’s the 3rd-anniversary celebration of the release of Clan War and last year the same thing happened as well.
      Prepare by being ready to war a lot (I’m quite sure this event will last for 1 week straight like last year)

      • Everytime you give the pro tip for the resources you never include back up storage. For example if the event for skeleton spells ended in 2 min, que 22 skeleton spells and when the event ends refund the 22 spells and get double the numbers you project. So i guess thats a pro pro tip for you

      • You’re right, I might refactor that tip a little bit to also state this – I was a little afraid that many people understand it wrong and then end up doing it too early and end up with 11 useless spells 😀

  6. It says Giant event rather than dragon event i quote your text.

    “Giant Event

    April 1st to April 3rd, 2017

    The Giant Event reduces the cost to train Dragons dramatically”

  7. sir I have two accounts . One is th 8, and other one is th 11. In the witch event or baby dragons event I get 30 gems in th 11, but I have n’t open the troops in th 8 . What to I do?

  8. Shortly before the event closes, fill up your Barracks by training as many Baby Dragons as possible in the queue. When the event is over, you can remove them and get a refund at the original price.

    This means you can train up to 40 Valkyries for a total of 570 Dark Elixir and then un-train for 5,700 Dark Elixir – making a profit of more than 5,000 Dark Elixir for doing nothing!

    I dont understand why you need to train Baby dragons while its the Valkyrie event. Is it a typo or what? Explain to me why you need to train BB dragons.

  9. Thank you ones again Captain Obvious… Good to know that what we have been doing for months, aslo found it’s way to this little all-add’s homepage 😀

    • LoL…no one asked you. And BTW somethings may not be so obvious to people who have just started playing the game. There is hardly anything to post about the game anyway. {And why did you even visit the website if you know everything I wonder 😉 }

      Good job Tim on the website. Many thanks

  10. Don’t you think the events afe unfair for lower level people who can’t train the prefered troop or can’t request for it. because their CC is cap is low.
    do you think there will be mulitiple events for each player to benifit?

    • I’ve seen lower TH with lower requirements e.g. TH10 required 5 baby dragon, TH9 4 baby dragon, and TH8 were 2 baby dragon which will fit in the clan castle. It doesn’t help that lower TH can’t benefit from farming with the lower troop but they can at least get the 30 gems.

  11. Hey Tim

    Just a question about a statement right near the top of the article.
    You said: “Those of you not having unlocked the troop featured int he current event will see a very low number needed to also unlock the gems for the event reward.”

    What do you exactly mean by this?

    Thanks heaps 🙂

    Also, great work on the website, loving it! Keep it up! 😀
    I’ve been noticing how more and more people are drawn towards clash royale, but I dont understand why. I play the game a bit but coc is tonnes better 🙂 I’ll be reading your content on allclash for years to come hopefully!

    • Yes, I used Disqus so far but they now either charge a monthly fee or include tons of adds and auto affiliate links in the comments.
      I don’t want that so I switched back to the native comment system.
      Hope this is ok for you guys but I really didn’t see any reason to let me blackmail from Disqus like that ?
