Update TODAY! March 2018 Update Ticker

It’s getting about time that the first Clash of Clans Update in 2018 is heading towards us and I actually think we will see a real content update in March 2018 (might also be a smaller one)

In this FREQUENTLY 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 the first update 2018 – especially those of you who don’tΒ spend hours in the official forum and Reddit.

Clash of Clans March 2018 Update

SupercellID Bug & Update problem (March 5th, 2018)

There is a problem when trying to switch accounts with SupercellID with the new update – however, you can solve this pretty easily:

  • Supercell ID not working – close all apps that you have running in the background. Restart Clash, Supercell ID should work at this point. We’re looking into this!

The other one is the every-update-again issue with installing the latest version:

  • Update not visible in App stores – go to App Stores > Updates > Swipe Down the page, this should “force” the update to be visible

By the way, here’s the new loading screen without the snow theme:

Update Livestream (March 3rd, 2018)

Looks like we got all the Sneak Peeks and the War Tools haven’t made it into the update – tomorrow there will be an Update Livestream showing the new stuff, especially Builder Hall 8, and very likely the Update will be released on Monday.

Here’s the link to the livestream:

Sneak Peek #3 – Builder Hall 8 (March 2nd, 2018)

The announcement of Builder Hall 8 shouldn’t be a surprise, on one hand it was already confirmed in the Reddit AMA two weeks ago plus BH8 was over the net since the release of Builder Hall in May 2017 as it was already in the game files.

Builder Hall 8 Clash of Clans

Along with the new Builder Hall, there’s also a new defense and a new troop available:

  • Mega Tesla
  • Super PEKKA

Here are more details about Builder Hall 8:

Resource Buildings:
+1 Elixir Pump
+1 Gold Mine

Defensive Buildings:
+1 Double Cannon
+1 Army Camp
+1 Hidden Tesla
+1 Cannon
+1 Firecrackers

+2 Spring Traps
+1 Push Trap
+1 Giant Bomb

+2 Additional levels for all troops (up to level 16)
Access to…SUPER P.E.K.K.A.Β (NEW)

Battle Machine:
+5 additional levels

Builder Base Balance Changes:

Builder Base Versus Battle rewards now increase up until 5000 trophies
Sneaky Archer: Level 12 Cloak ability duration is reduced from 10 seconds to 8 seconds.
Drop Ship: HP has been increased by 10% across all levels.

Additional Home Village Content:

You can now upgrade a single Mortar in your Home Village to a Multi-mortar defensive building, starting at TH10.

Mega Tesla

Let’s start with the Mega Tesla, a new defensive building for your Builder Base. So what sets the Mega Tesla apart from its not-so-Mega cousins? Take a look!

Build Time: 24hrs
Range: 7 tiles
Targets: Ground and Air
Favorite Target: Any
Damage Type: Chain Lightning

mega tesla coc gameplay

So what is Chain Lightning? The Mega Tesla’s damage will hit the first target up to 7 tiles away, and then will arc to the next closest target up to 3 tiles away and deal damage to it as well. Shocking!

They share the damage it deals per level in the full patch notes on release day!

Super P.E.K.K.A.

She’s big, bad, beautiful, and goes BOOM! The new Super P.E.K.K.A. troop differs from her Home Village counterpart in one distinct way. So let’s take a look at her base level stats when you unlock Builder Base 8.

Units per Army Camp: 1
Spring Weight: 25
Movement Speed: 16
Favorite Target: Any
Damage Type: Single Target
Special Ability: Overcharge

super pekka stats coc

When the Super P.E.K.K.A. receives fatal damage, she does one final explosive attack called “Overcharge”. At level 1, her Overcharge deals 400 damage. And her Overcharge ability gets stronger as her level increases. That’s a lot of boom.

This is going to get interesting how the meta at BH8 will develop around this – the Super PEKKA will be an exloding tank but the Mega Tesla can take her down very fast. Hard to tell if this will force, along with the Giant Cannon, attackers to adapt to more mass troop attacking strategies as the Mega Tesla will also hit multiple targets with the chain lightning.

Also it seems like Supercell has some more info for us, I’m still hoping for the War Tools Darian mentioned in the AMA on Reddit but said that he isn’t sure if they make it into the game for the March Update.

What do you think?

Sneak Peek #2 – The Trader & Balancing Changes (March 1st, 2018)

The Trader is coming and it looks like it will be some sort of shop where we can get magical items.

“The Trader is a traveling merchant who, starting at Town Hall 8, will frequent your Village to peddle his exotic wares. Setting shop on the other side of the Clan path, across from the Clan Games carriage, the Trader will have 3 special deals for you each day. Perhaps you’d like to acquire a Magic Item or other rare and unusual novelties? The Trader may just have what you’re looking for!”

This is how he will appear in your village:

clash of clans trader post

So, basically the Trader will offer you magical items for Gems every day:

coc trader deals in spring 2018 update for clash of clans

I know many of you guys would have hoped to trade one resource into another or maybe even get magical items for resources, but I think the deals in the shop are still cheaper than buying the stuff for gems. Anyway, I’m not too surprised after having seen how Supercell handles the shop in Clash Royale, but there you can buy cards in the shop for Gold as well!

I really hope Supercell will make this happen in the future as well.

Now let’s talk some balancing!

Here are some infos to the new balancing of the Home Village:

  • TH11 Walls: Increased the number of wall pieces that can be upgraded to max level to 300 (was 125)
  • Wizard Tower: Decreased level 9 Wizard Tower damage from 56 to 54
  • Inferno Tower
    • Multi-mode damage changes:
      • Level 3: 42 to 45
      • Level 4: 50 to 53
      • Level 5: 58 to 63
    • Single-mode damage changes:
      • Damage has been balanced to increase the time it takes to reach max damage, from 4.25 seconds to 5.25 seconds.
  • P.E.K.K.A.
    • Level 4 is now available at Town Hall 9 instead of Town Hall 10.
    • Level 6 is now available at Town Hall 10 instead of Town Hall 11
    • Costs 8.5 million Elixir instead of 10 million.
    • Level 7 is available at Town Hall 11 – Upgrade times have been adjusted/reduced so the Level 7 upgrade is now 14 days.
  • Additional Trap levels added
    • Skeleton Trap level 4
    • Giant Bomb level 5
    • Bomb level 7
    • Air Bomb level 5

Here’s how the new traps will look like:

new traps coc spring update

Interesting balancing changes here, I thought the Inferno Tower Multi-Mode would get a far bigger buff and the nerf of the Single Mode wouldn’t be that big. I liked the standing it got after the December Update with the SIngle Mode could really destroy Queen Walks easily – buut the second more charging time probably doesn’t change that much here.

Rune Leaked (March 1st, 2018)

Nothing big, but the Japanese Twitter account from Clash of Clans just posted a picture how the Runes will look inside your Clan Castle – in this case, the Rune of Builder Base Gold:

Looking pretty nice in my opinion, I have a feeling this update will become a good one πŸ™‚

Sneak Peek #1: New Magic Items & Challenges (February 28th, 2018)

We just got first official details regarding the new magical items & challenges we will see in the March 2018 Update that will” likely coming very soon”.

I highlighted you the details that are not inside the news section notification πŸ™‚

New Challenges:

  • Win 3 Stars against a specific Town Hall level in Multiplayer Battles
  • Earn 5 Stars in Multiplayer Battles against opponents in Titan League
  • Get Stars from a Town Hall higher level than your own
  • Get Stars without using any Spells
  • Get Stars without using any Heroes
  • Earn 3 Stars from a Clan War battle
  • Knock out a number of level points of a specific Hero
  • Earn 5 Stars in Versus Battles using Super P.E.K.K.A.
  • Destroy a number of Mega Teslas in Versus Battles
  • that’s just a few,Β a lot more coming as well πŸ™‚

I really like how challenges of these kind will add more fun to the game and hopefully the rewards will get adjusted accordingly so it’s not just “fun” but also “challenging” and worth doing these attacks (e.g. no spells or higher Town Hall).

New Magic Items (including new type, the Runes & Rings):

  • Builder Potion – this Magic Item will speed up the progress of your Builders in the Home Village by 10x for 1 hour.
  • Runes – these Magic Items will fill the storage of one of your 5 resources, Gold, Elixir, Dark Elixir, Builder Base Gold, and Builder Base Elixir. Max capacity: 1 per resource type.
  • Ring of Walls – this Magic Item will increase the level of your Walls!Β  They can be used to upgrade Walls in both the Home Village and Builder Base. Max capacity: 25.Β Of course, the higher the level of Wall, the more of these you’ll need…

I really like the idea of runes as they can help out a lot and can get combined with books perfectly. The Ring of Walls will help out in Builder Base a lot as it’s pretty much impossible to max out walls without using Gems.

Overall, I can’t help the feeling that Supercell wants us to max out faster and faster to probably close the gap a little bit before their new “endgame content” gets released. I think I’d like it a little bit more when I would have more left than some last troop upgrades of troops I don’t use and walls πŸ˜€

Just like Clan Wars, your Clan will nowΒ earn Clan XPΒ at the end of each Clan Games, determined by the number of thresholds reached by you and your Clan mates.

A new Achievement! Complete the newΒ “Games Champion” AchievementΒ by earning personal points in Clan Games to earn some extra gems and player XP.

Tomorrow will come more info with Sneak Peek #2

Update Final Testing & Balancing (February 27th, 2018)

We all know that the upcoming Clash of Clans Update will be in March, but asked for a more precise timeframe, Darian confirmed that they are doing final testing & balancing and are confident that the update can get released very soon.

coc march 2018 update date

In addition, he confirmed that the balancing for the Sneaky Archers will be nothing else than a reduced ability time as with the additional Army Camp plus additional troop count per army space in Builder Hall 8, it would be possible to have 72 Sneaky Archers that will completely wreck not matter how well a base is upgraded.

March Update Info (February 20th, 2018)

The March Update will become a solid update in terms of content & quality of life things when taking all the stuff Darian mentioned over on Reddit yesterday:

  • Builder Hall 8
  • Balancing for Builder Base & Home Village
    • Inferno Towers nerf (Single Mode) & buff (Multi Mode)
    • Sneaky Archers ability
    • much more
  • New troop levels in Builder Base & Home Village
  • New Clan Games challenges
  • New Magical Items (one of them related to walls)
  • maybe some “War Tools” (did not said anything more detailed to it, I assume it’s for organizing the wars better)
  • Traveling character who brings interesting goodies (also, no more details said by him)

Yesterday, I was doing my best to keep the main things updated but I also promised you that I will share more detailed thoughts on this today.

First of all, sounds like an update we all can be ok with as the first update in a new year is never a really big one in Clash of Clans.

The only thing I’m disappointed about is that neither clouding nor matchmaking will get the long-hoped fixes. Darian said that matchmaking will hopefully see the world before summer and clouding is, due to it’s technical complexity, something they will look at after they dropped “their really massive content update mid of the year”.

Regarding the update I think that new challenges & magical items were something that they said will bring often enough to not be that surprised plus new troop levels are a every-update-thing.

I’m more curious about the mentioned “war tools” – I assume they want to help clans organize their wars to not have to use tools like ClashTrack – however, I doubt they can fully compensate all the features within the game. Making war management easier inside the game, however, is something that should have been done a long time ago so let’s see what Supercell came up with.

The thing about the “traveller that brings interesting goodies” is something I have mixed feeling about. When we look at the fact that Supercell will never ever allow us to trade resources, what purpose & goodies could that traveler serve us for? My first guess would be that he comes from time to time and sells magical items for either resources or gems like the shop in Clash Royale – but I can be totally wrong or maybe also Darian just dropped a little joke on us as he didn’t mention anything more about that. We will find out in the next weeks…

Here’s by the way an index of all his original answers on Reddit (the full AMA is insanely long)

I also put everything regarding the whole 2018 update roadmap together here:

That's Coming 2018 in Clash of Clans

AMA with Darian on Reddit (February 19th, 2018)

Darina is doing is Ask Me Anything thread over on Reddit right now and I wrap(ped) you up the most important stuff here.

I will just put the bullet points here first as I know some of you guys are extremely hyped to read it as fast as possible (will rework it with my opinion when the AMA ended):

  • Builder Hall 8 & More fresh content will get released in March 2018
  • Mass Sneaky Archer will find an end in BB as they will rework the ability (yeah!)
  • Beyond BH8, there is nothing planned for the Builder Base so far, so all the other work will go toward the Home Village the in coming months
  • Clan Games will become less frequent in March
  • New troop in some kind in 2018, not specifically said a new troop but he said they “recognize [the wish for a new troop and] that and will hopefully remedy that situation”
  • Inferno Towers will get some balancing in the March 2018 Update:
    • Multi Inferno get a buff
    • Single Inferno a nerf
  • They want to bring their solution for the current matchmaking with engineering in the first half of the year,not in the March 2018 Update
  • Engineering might become a big disadvantage (“I can’t go into details yet as to what the feature is or how it’ll work. But let’s just say this…Engineers will still be able to engineer, but in this new feature they’ll be at a huge disadvantage. That’s all I can say about it at this time.”) I assume he doesn’t mean that engineered bases will become useless, but rather trying to engineer the base will put people at a disadvantage – probably like missing new game content etc. as being forced to max out. I’m really curious about this one…
  • Clouding will get addressed later this year as it requires a big overhaul on how the whole game is built – after the “big home village content update mid of 2018”
  • More Magic Items coming in the next update (also one that has to do with walls)
  • He answered the question what else is coming in the next update with:
    • Some balance changes to both BH and Main Village, new troop levels in the BH, some new troop levels in the MV, more buildings for BH, a traveling character who brings you interesting goodies, and hopefully some Clan War tools.
    • BH8 release – Some balance changes, some new troops levels, some wall upgrades for TH11, some war tools, some new magic items, some new Clan Games challenges
  • …typing

Here’s the full thread.

Loot Bonanza Event (February 14th, 2018)

We’re heading towards some crazy days in Clash of Clans! Tomorrow the insane Lunar Games (read about it here) will start that will feature the Book of Everything for the first time ever plus 5 days where we get 2x the Clan War Reward & 4x Star Bonus.

Loot Bonanza Clash of Clans

Rune of Gold! Next Clan Games Rewards & Tiers

Hopefully Supercell adds enough dead bases so the clouding will be at least a little bit ok during that time.

Update Marathon Ahead (February 9th, 2018)

Are we looking toward a couple of content updates in the next months? According to Darian we do:

many updates 2018

Well the first thing he’s confirming is that there will be a big change to the war matchmaking – this time hopefully for good. What he’s also saying is that there will be a couple of content updates in the first half year where we have like 4 and a half months left. Hurray!

1 Gem Boost & Obstacle Spawn Rate (February 6th, 2018)

Today we got a surprising 1 Gem Resource Boost Event for the next 8 days, so do not miss the chance to get a lot of extra resources for little Gems!

clash of clans 1 gem boost 2018

Also many people are reporting that they did not get a seasonal obstacle (Money Tree or Fireworks) yet – me included. There are many saying that they seem to spawn a lot more in inactive bases, but nothing has been confirmed by Supercell so far.

By the way, here are some good base designs you might want to use to spawn the seasonal obstacles on the outside ring of your base:

Darian Interview (February 4th, 2018)

This weekend, Darian (Supercell Community Manager for Clash of Clans) got interviewed in the Spring Trap Show and was giving a lo t of interesting insights where the game is heading in 2018 and I really recommend to watch it.

If you’re not into watching the whole interview (what I really recommend to do!), here’s a reddit post that will wrap all the answers up.

Chinese New Year Event Update (February 1st, 2018)

Today the Lunar New Year Update is live and you can get it in the AppStore and Google Play and it will let the Money Tree and the Fireworks spawn in your Home Village.

Here are seasonal obstacles:

fortune tree and fireworks clash of clans

Also, the real festive day is the February 16th, so we can prepare for some special events coming to use there as well πŸ™‚

In addition there’s full support for the iPhone X included.

Full iPhone X Support (January 31st, 2018)

Many have been asking for full iPhone X support (well, not that “many” when considering that probably 0.01% of all players own an iPhone X…) and now Supercell Support stated that there will be full support (not the compatibility mode) in the next update:

iPhone X support for Clash of Clans

Chinese New Year Event Leaks (January 27th, 2018)

Through the chinese Twitter account from Clash of Clans, a new loading screen has been leaked and it points toward the next update as well:

clash of clans new update leak chinese new year 2018

As you can see, it celebrates Chinese New Year, which is February 16th – 18th and it makes perfectly sense that with the rise in the chinese market, Supercell also starts making events away from the “western” events like Christmas & Halloween.

The picture itself is pretty professional, so I don’t think it’s a fake and it would fit pretty well into the updating schedule.

In addition, there are also two special decorations coming along with this:

chinese new year obstacles 2018 coc leak

As these are from a early developer version of the game, the price & amount available is just a placeholder & I can’t tell you if it will be a seasonal or a permanent obstacle but I personally like the fact that we get more annual events πŸ™‚

BH8, Endgame Content, TH12, What’s Coming 2018 (January 24th, 2018)

I know you might now roll your eyes but I think I want to give you a brief overview of some interesting things that will show us where we’re heading.

Builder Hall 8

Many here, including myself, have expected that we will see Builder Hall 8 becoming available in Q1 2018 as it is finished and maxing out BH7 is by now possible if you are F2P – but Darian denied that they plan to roll it out before April 2018!

no bh8 update before april 2018

What I can read here is that Supercell doesn’t sound like they will add much of Builder Base stuff in the near future and just use it as a gap-filler. In addition, it looks like not that many F2P player actually play Builder Base anymore, as with F2P it is possible to become maxed BH7 by now (well, except walls).

builder hall 8 clash of clans

Town Hall 12

I know many think that Town Hall 12 is a sure thing, but in fact I wouldn’t be that sure about it, at least until end of 2018 – and Darian confirmed that.

no town hall 12 in 2018 clash of clans

So, those of you who saw a clickbait video on YouTube, don’t get too hyped – TH12 was not confirmed at any point in the past.

What’s coming 2018?

Well, I understand that this answer will be like that I could swear I have heard this a lot of times before, but it sounds that Supercell’s plans for Clash of Clans are huge this year:

clash of clans 2018 Update

Sounds nice and I personally believe that since Darian is the Community Manager, we have seen a huge improvement to the state we had before in terms of communication. Away from that I’m realistic and think we have some quality of life stuff at top priority right now (matchmaking, clouds…) as well as a refactoring of the league system in general and much more on the list.

I’m looking forward to a new year with this great game πŸ™‚

  1. You should have the ability to opt in or opt out of clan games to avoid people getting kicked imo:)

    Great article:)

  2. i don’t know y they kept trader for th8. my low th friends are crying for new things to them also. eben if they van upgrade the still they could keep th 6 or 7 at least for trader. is there any logic in that? update seems good but I don’t play builder base from 2,,months still in 2k trophies with b hall 6. waiting for new content in home

  3. isn’t this the most boring coc update.Supercell told that we will be rewarded for our patience………still feeling bored havingTh11 account……no change in home base gameplay…..and always on cloud😒😒😒😒😒

  4. Does the trader give everyone the same things to buy?
    I know that the shop in Clash Royale differs between players.

  5. What’s with the ring of walls……after giving such fantastic update they ruined it…..
    I am a th10 but I can only upgrade 6 walls with that one.
    I was hoping for the 25 walls update

    • Yeah but you understand that this would be too good to be true right? Also, there’s everywhere written that higher walls require more rings…
      I wouldn’t disagree upgrading one wall piece to lvl 12 with 1 wall ring neither πŸ˜‰

  6. They said update is available but there in no updates for clash of clans what’s wrong? My phone is iPhone 6 and iOS 11.2.6

  7. I keep trying to update and it keeps saying that one is available but it won’t update and so I can’t even load the game, it just keeps looping around. Any suggestions?

  8. Hey. Any1 looking for age 21+ usa clan, we currently got 15 members clan lvl 3 almost 4, we cycle new people for war n give every1 a chance, as for clan games we average 21000 points, looking for active people for next games. If intrested check out adultsarmy21+3 and request to join. Be patient and within the day some1 will accept you

  9. Under your BH8 update you list no new Multi-Mortar, but the image above clearly shows 2 of them.
    Same goes for the Air Bomb.

  10. Will clan games be every week from now on? There was no troop event this weekend, does this mean supercell is replacing those with clan games?

  11. surley , they won’t reales TH12 as soon. b cAz th11 needs still some balancing updat for troops and some defensive building.

  12. bro then the information you gave will it all be in next update? if then what about multiple updates ahead there is surely lot of new content. but where will trader be? and I think the passage they made with clan banner near it has some thing related to updates ahead

    • I’m just writing what I see coming from Supercell, I can’t tell you what’s in their mind – they said multiple updates until summer.
      This update will be trader, bh8 & balancing and no war tools or clan related stuff

  13. Awesome site man. I always check all your update!
    kindly check your latest update, there is a typo error, date should be March 3rd, 2018


  14. see bro if they release item that foils our storage which is called rune and there will be trader won’t he sell rune won’t it be a loss to supercell in terns of money

  15. Awesome page man. Am I the only person that would like refunded for every time I use 10 million coins or elixir or 200k dark, then they lower prices. Love the game, but frustrated that I grinded way more than others. Max townhall 11 problems….

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ The refund discussion, however, is something I don’t agree. When now Apple sells the iPhone 6 at a lower price than I paid 3 years ago, I also can’t get a refund and wouldn’t ask Apple to get one πŸ˜‰
      You paid the higher price back then because you thought it’s a reasonable price, otherwise you wouldn’t – and we’re not talking about real money when we refer to resources in CoC – besides, 10M Gold is something you can raid within 1-2 days, I wouldn’t waste time being angry about it and still be proud already having it.
      PS: You can start a mini account and have fun paying lower prices πŸ™‚

  16. Sneaky Archer Nerf to be announced tomorrow.
    Bye bye time wasting attacks πŸ˜‚πŸ‘‹


  17. Hey,
    I wanna ask a question,
    The Ring of Walls Reward in ClanGames will cost us to upgrade the wall or it will of Free.

  18. Can some one explain widely about ring of walls can we upgrade it to next level or maxed to town hallπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

    • End-game means those who are nearly maxed and don’t have many or no upgrades left to do – right now the endgame is a semi-maxed to maxed TH11 player.
      It has nothing to do with the “end” of the game, there is no end in Clash of Clans as long as Supercell will release new updates πŸ™‚

      • Comment*thanx for the reply. sjo i was worried for a second. imagine clash ending. what will i do with my life(joke)? thanx for this sit man i always come here b cause ur stuff is always legit keep up the hard work

  19. May not be high priority but I would like the option of moving special obstacles as well as removing them – anyone else think this ?

  20. Any chance the deployment of CC troops will change. It would be really nice if a person can pick the order troops deploy instead of perceived weakest first. Why not have golem drop ahead of wiz and arch, or giants to soak up hit damage ahead of arch, etc.

    Also, would like quick train feature to train troops/spells in oder of preference, not perceived weakest first.

    • They r deployed in the same series as their photos appear in your profile and barracks, i.e., barbs 1st then archers then giants so on… not weakest first

  21. Tim, when will the lunar new year seasonal obstacle stop spawning? Still only got 2 fireworks (right where i want it, the border of the village) and 1 fortune tree, which out of all place, despite i’m using specially design base to have it grow at the borders, grew inside my base! 😑😠. Would like to have at least one more tree at the border…

    • probably not they rather want to adjust upgrade times & costs to not make it a grind -> 2 builder now wouldn’t help that much as you can’t get the additional resources without gemming

  22. Hi Timmy!
    I have an idea!
    Added an option that “some guys who are new members in clan and listed in war, will have been unable to left the clan by own before they haven’t done their two attack .” This managing clan war tool can be in hand of leaders and maybe coleaders as a good controling option which is realy in need.


      • No timmy ! No man! Lol
        I have not to force someone to stay in clan! My mean is only whom players are listed in current clan war . But when they try their both attacks war then they can left the clan . No any force is here.!
        It can be like a garantee for you that new members of clan who are listed in currently clan war surly have to try both of their attacks AND then they leave the clan .

    • Won’t be useful to force them to stay. If someone is already planning on leaving the clan there is no motivation for them to do a proper attack.

      They can then just start the attack, drop 1 barb or something and quit.

  23. Please you won’t to say me when I saw you the town hall 12 is a confirmed or a not confirmed OK please I really love these game much more love love and again love this game 😍😍😍😍😍

    • no confirmation – he said there will be new end game content and it will not be a new town hall in the way we know it to make it a new grind – IF there will be a th 12 (what pointed out he DID NOT confirm) it will be different from how th11 came into the game

  24. Hey Tim, thanks for all info. πŸ‘πŸ‘
    Very excited to see traveler or whatever is it..
    Before BH was released, I have an idea that they should add a water base with defenses like hydro pump, etc with water troops….Just wanted to express ,so I can sleep well.(now it is useless)

    And BTW block this guy : tha**n
    Your Fan : Sting

    Probably u will also host a AMA. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Thanks πŸ™‚
      Well I don’t think there will be another base in CoC that soon after the Builder Base story. My guess was that SC hoped to make this new game mode a lot huger than the community took it so they will focus on home village this year – but you know, never say never πŸ˜‰

  25. bro thnks. for reply. but I was there during 5th anniversary but i dnt remember gift spell and leave roceteer but what about Garg, tiny,tinymite,flower,dark tower,etc., bro ill keep u all updated with info found. but I need help can anyone or tim get me app which can read (.sc) files,if u can then I can reveal all the upcoming events and upgrades and new troops because if supercell plans for new troop it adds something about it in its coding files also. thnks

    • I don’t think u r programmer .Looks like a script kiddie, trying to find a tool to find next update. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      I guess you don’t know what is script kiddie.. Google it.

  26. I read reddit post. so I don’t know what they planned. but in next update that will release some extra thing in app coding I’ll find. I found m any troops and apella. rocketerr and more and gift spell and more and there is new promo puzzle. I have already explained in comments below. but Timmy I have doubt see only maxed troops have fire in the troop level icon right. but one day one person attacked me with some minions and dragons and it had blue color fire in its troop level icon. eht is that. I have screenshot if u didn’t understand what I said . pls clear my doubt

    • Gift Spell was the seasonal spell in last years 5th anniversary event & rockateer is inside the game files for I think like 2 years. They often put stuff in there they’re testing out and never use in the end (or transfer into something completely different after long terms of testing)… So not every thing in the game files means it will become released πŸ˜‰
      Blie fire means they use the Power Potion to boost troops to the max level πŸ™‚

    • They said in the beginning that they wan’t to keep the one builder and the amount of daily loot to not make it another grind -> the upgrades with gold are pretty much balanced out anyway so far so without using gems you can’t get enough gold to keep upgrades running so I don’t see another Master Builder appearing anytime soon πŸ™‚

  27. Hey Tim, thank you for filtering out the important things.
    Personally the thing I’m mostly excited for is the sneaky archer balancing. I hope the cloak ability is nerfed way beyond recognition πŸ˜‚
    I find such attacks annoying when someone spends over 3 and a half minutes deploying a single one of those pesky things for the entire duration of the cloak just to lose with 51% on my base πŸ˜’
    Goodbye sneaky archers! You won’t be missed 😊

  28. so I have posted the post update info found in coc app programming. new troops are also there and new mode to game are also and also spells read post till end to know more. Timmy I pls ask you to kindly read till end because lot of info is there . just search clashing web in Google and go to site. I’ll send link in upcoming comment because sometime Tim may delete link pls bro. I want everyone to know about new things to game

  29. Honestly, I think you’re right about the Fortune Tree spawning more on inactive bases. I’ve been on a hiatus for the past few weeks while just collecting resources every once in a while and I have 6 Fortune Trees all on the outside edge and 1 Fireworks Stash.

  30. I uploaded video about update info found in coding. search update info found in coc coding in YouTube you’ll get its 4.34 minute video. I’ll explain detailed in post I’m working on it. new troops and spells and game types. see video till end. u also Tim. important Info’s are there I worked for 8 hours to let u know the info. pls share

  31. Seasonal obstacle spawning sucks this time around. I’m sitting on 4 fireworks stash on one account and one on another with 0 money trees. Disappointing….

  32. I hope they add a forfet button to builder base for once they already have more. I cant say how many times I get dqed from battle at the beginning and have to wait 3 minutes while my boosted clock gets wasted, or when i finish way before enemy, they already have more but they take the full time cleaning up with 1 remaining troop. Another good thing would be if they add a small info on how your enemy attack went if they finish first. Like a percentage and how many stars comes up at top of screen with how many people are watching. So the slower attacker knows if they dont need to continue and save their clock

    Also I prefer the clan games that give me 12 choices instead of 8. hope to get more of them

    About holiday trees if this helps figure stuff out I get on once a day and as of yesterday i have 8 money trees but no fireworks. might be I am inactive enough that I am getting money trees but too active for fireworks. I had 3 when I got on 2 days ago, then cleared all but my numerous xmas trees. got on the yesterday and had 8, cant wait to see what i have now

      • Yeah same here – I always ask myself how this could bring any fun sending in Archer by Archer watching the clock and knowing that any decent 2-Star already beat the sh*t out of one!? πŸ˜‚

  33. hi I’m tharun . hope Tim u remember me. I have found the plan of supercell in its coc coding and I’m uploading a video and post tommorow. and about obstacle I have received only 1 firecrackers obstacle but I have seen villages with more than 10 firecrackers obstacle and more than 15 golden tree and both of them. I don’t know what? I have screenshots also. I won’t reveal everything found in coc coding because its not good .bye thanks. nice post.

  34. I noticed more vagaries between accounts. We currently have a 24hr Resource pack offer on my TH10 and on one of 2 TH9 accounts, this isn’t the first time that the offer has been on just one of the TH9s! Don’t know why one of the accounts is being discriminated against but this happened before and it’s the same account that suffers.
    Timmy, you do an awesome job, keep it up!

    • Thanks Crusher πŸ™‚
      I’m sure Supercell uses a lot of algortihm behind who get the packs etc to maximize their revenue, maybe it’s the one where you purchased something in the past…

  35. I have a feeling theyre making the active players wait longer for these obstacles just to build suspence… this is easily the coolest tree yet to come and im going to be pretty happy when it finally spawns.

    • I dont think SC would risk upsetting more active players. In regard to any of the seasonal obstacles.

      Everyone has their theory on how it works. Mine is that you get the obstacles by being attacked.

      For example I had no money trees or fire works for a few days. But I also hadn’t been attacked in days. So when I searched a village to attack I noted less active.. (Villages had low level buildings and walls etc) they would already have a few obstacles.

      So my theory is you get these as a gift after being attacked.. not right away but with in an hour or two. I think I have a decent set up with my village. So more people are LESS likely to attack me which equals less obstacles for me. But more for inactive players. Because they are easy pickings, so get attacked more.

      I put it to the test! I put my TH out on a corner. Then used decorations you can buy from the store like the small flowers, the torches and some flags around the edges of my village to encourage obstacles to spawn around the outside ring of the base. Not in the actual village and it worked got 3 trees and 4 fire crackers! Over 2 days

      Give it a try…

  36. To add support to the Fortune tree spawn theory – in our clan inactive players have 5 to 6 trees already. Out of the 30+ active players we have a total of only two trees combined. I would love an, “Official” word from Super Cell on this. Thnx πŸ‘πŸΌ

    • I have put my main account stone dead since yesterday evening till I get the obstacles. Still nothing but hoping for the best.
      On my second account I have thrown everything in the garbage can. Pumpkins, christmas trees, haloween stuff…stfu, got enough of this corrupt game.
      It’s straight ridiculous that a billion-of-dollars earning company can’t -or is’n willing to- fix this stupid bug. But on the other hand, it’s Supercell, and Syupercell doesn’t communicatie with it’s clients as we all know.

  37. So…..on my main acct which is more active, only 1 gold tree had spawned. But my mini acct which is stick pretty active but not as much as 2 of each spawning. When I took a break from my main for 2 days… had spawned 1 more fortune tree. This explain anything?

  38. Hey Timm, would you mind answering me a little question?
    Can I use the 1 Gem-Boost and at the same time a resource potion ? Would I get x4 resource production?
    By the way awesome posts keep up the good work!πŸ‘

    • Thanks πŸ™‚
      When you use them at the same time the duration will get longer and not the boost stronger. If you boost for 1 gem and then activate the potion you get 2 days boost with 2x

  39. I refuse to swear, but what’s this? Just attacked a base with 5 fireworks and 1 golden tree. And I still got nothing πŸ™

  40. Still no seasonal obestacles here….I’m an almost max, very active TH11. Should I quit for a week or so in order to obtain them?

    • Not a strategy IMO and 2 weeks left where they will spawn… I remember that I also waited for the Christmas Tree like one week or so until I got the first one, so patience is probably the key

  41. I can confirm that of several accounts, the inactive accounts are receiving multiple fireworks, multiple gold trees, while my active accounts are only getting 1 gold tree or 1 fireworks.. There is a distinct and unbalanced spawning between the inactive and active accounts.

    • I have a th11 account, took a week to get a tree. One of my th9’s got the first tree a day earlier and a second tree a day later. Those are my two most active accounts. My third th9 I haven’t been on for over a week and a half and when I logged on to it I had nothing. I think I have one fireworks there now… don’t think inactive bases get a higher spawning rate since my main has 5 fireworks and 1 tree now and my busy th9 has 4 fireworks and 2 trees and my ignored rushed th9 is sitting with one firework…. not to say I debunked the inactive theory but I don’t think it makes a difference

  42. I don’t get the obstacles too….damn, don’t know why. Small base got 3 each, maxed out base got zero. I hope they’ll spawn soon!

    • I also didn’t got any so far. On reddit there’s a discussion that they appear to spawn much more frequently in inactive bases.
      The Chinese New Year is Feb 16th, so I think they will grow at least for 2 more weeks and I would be surprised if here’s one person that don’t get any of them after the whole time they have been spawning

  43. I came here to figure out what is that Fireworks Stash? Should I keep it,,or does it just give some gold?

    Now I am also curious what is that crypyic F2P ,acronym?

    • Well you can only get it during this period and then never again, I’d advise you to keep it instead of taking the gold you can get within one raid πŸ™‚
      F2P measn “free to play” and refers to those players who do not buy gems or spend money on the game

  44. I am Chinese, and I am really excited about this update. I can read the text on the first image. Surely, I will love this update, and I hope there are more things coming in here. I permanently keep all holiday obstacles, and this update obstacle is the first time that have Chinese New Year. I am now th9 and wishes all players a great Chinese New Year!

  45. Personally getting a bit fed up of updates. Could we not have a long period of stability to make the most of what we have already got. Just as I max troops and buildings and figure out good attacks another new wave of content gets released.

  46. Hello,i am a th10 almost maxed just walls and heroes left my heroes. my queen is lvl32 and king is lvl36. but i cant 3 star a maxed townhall10 in wars can u suggest me a good war strategy thank you!

    • Every bangladesh’s player expect there own flag.But if you ask supercell they will answer you, how much pleayer plays clash of clans on your country? I think it could be 10k plus…A simple flag does not affect the game but if every single clasher from bangladesh request supercell it could think about you.

  47. Thanks for the answers.As you said, queen charge is the best option but that requires higher level queen i only have level 15.I don’t think I will wait that long time to upgrade my queen as i have been max out my th9. If you ‘Help’ me I could upgrade that.In unlureable war bases I use GoWiVa to 2 star a th10 and 3 star th9.You know that, This strategy is same as GoVaHo(personaly I don’t like hog raider).So, I use kill squad to lure and kill cc troops.But with an addition:My queen kill cc troops,If she is upgrading I cann’t kill cc troops by using only wizards.If I Non-stoply upgrade her I will be out of war for 4 months. So is there any guide to take down clan castle troops without queen (upgrading) by using GoWiVa. If you kindly detail it clearly I will be ready to go non-stop queen upgrade…thank you.

    • I see… My feedback here is:
      1) Get your Queen to lvl 20 fast to make queen charges (actually I would say 25 is better, but with good skill it works at 20 as well) -> Use the Book of Heroes from Clan Games only on her (this wekend mini games will ofer one as well, btw)
      2) If you attack without Queen in Clan War, you can’t expect a 3-Star. Lucky if you get it, but don’t plan with it – sorry but she is the key element of almost everything. You can cover an upgrading King but not the Queen
      3) With GoWiVa without Queen you’ll need to attack into the CC and drop Poison & Rage to get them down (not go after cc setups with Dragons)
      I’m sorry but you’re searching for seomthing that is not possible – upgrading the Queen is the toughest thing and we all walked through that pain πŸ™
      So, this article here is on the upcoming update, so if you have more questions, kindly write me an email ([email protected]) so we have this comment section here for Update discussion πŸ™‚

  48. How to deal with an archer queen and clan castle troops (th9) when attacking with lavaloon.I have read many article accept all clash but no one detail it clearly.Can you please detail it.

    • It depends, so here are your options:
      – Suicide attack with your royals if the Archer Queen is reachable from the outside (maybe put some tanks in front of here)
      – Queen Charge (often used in War)
      – for farming just ignore and drop Poison on CC (if there are any) if she is next to defenses the splash of the loons will take her down
      => Without additional info where you’re using Laloon (war, farming, pushing) it’s hard to give a detailed answer πŸ˜‰

      • Of caurse,I want to use it in war.That does not mean don’t know how to attack with it. I use this strategy to push my trophie to champion.But with an addition:I attack on those bases where queen was upgrading or she is outside.So i clearly don’t know how to take her down. In the begining i used 1 poison that does not work.If she is proteting townhall i never 2 stared it.In war i want to use lavaloon but there were all unlureable bases. I don’t think killing cc troops with golem and wizard will be the best option to kill cc troops in lavaloon. That made the whole attack into heavy presure, controlling ground or air unit at the same strategy.So my answer is i want to use it in war so please give me a guide about how to take her down and kill clan castle troops in unlurdable bases by using only lava loon…thank you.

      • LavaLoon works for pushing, farming and in war, so this info is important as it requires different elements πŸ™‚
        So regarding war, you want to either Queen Charge to defending Queen and pull the defending CC troops (here you find a guide on that) and then start your balloon deployment with lava hounds clockwise around the base (4-5 balloons to take down defenses).
        If you go after a base with a very centralized queen that can’t be reached with queen charge, you will go in full forces with your loons to take her down with splash damage, but that is not happening in many cases πŸ™‚
        Hope this helps πŸ™‚

      • I do Simple laloon by luring cc & Dropping skeleton spell on the queen while she is engaged with lava & a rage spell which makes the skeletons crazy 😍

    • if the AQ is near the center, you can have a skeleton spell within a rage spell to take her down but make sure that there aren’t any nearby mortars and only drop it when most of the defenses are taking on your main army

  49. After builder hall eight is released do you think supercell will make a builder hall nine like they did in the home village after they made the initial 8 town halls and then released town halls not first included in the game once enough players were maxed out?

    • Well, I think this pretty much depends how the whole community plays Builder Base and the only people who have access to this data is Supercell.
      When the Builder Base was released, they already had BH1-BH8 finished and released BH6+ with small balancing – that’s no effort for them in Builder Base content since May 2017.
      Now that Builder Base is a F2P game and I don’t know anyone who spent Gems on it since the release of BH6, I can’t tell if they really put manpower into developing it any further – that’s bottom line a business descision.
      I personally have the feeling they wil release BH8 and it will keep most F2P players busy until end of 2018, so unless they will add extra gameplay features to the Builder Hall I don’t see much happening there in 2018
