Lately there’s been some “Town Hall 13 CONFIMRED!!!!!” hype around the community and I feel like I want to write down a few lines here to get things straight because this hype seems to, again, getting way off limits and might end up in wrong expectations and frustration at some point.
It’s true, Town Hall 13 is coming. Well, actually this shouldn’t bee that much of a surprise since TH10, TH11 and TH12 was introduced to Clash of Clans after the game was initially released in 2012 😉
So, what happened that creates such a hype now?
When looking back to the past developer video for the last update, Supercell said that they don’t want to have two and a half years in between the release of a new Town Hall like it was the case between Town Hall 11 and Town Hall 12.
They also said that they aim for having 18 months in between the release of new Town Hall level.
This whole thing got a little less attention when it was released but then got picked up by Judo Sloth in a recent video telling that Town Hall 13 is confirmed.
Don’t get me wrong, I really like his content and subscribed him on YouTube, but this video was, in my opinion, the hype getting started for no reason – there was no new information released at any point.
Please!!!!!!! Mind the words “they don’t want” and “they aim” – those are words that don’t confirm anything. I “want to” do dozens of things every day that I don’t do in the end, so this is just an intention and reality will show in the end what the real time schedule will be. I also saw people making videos and forum posts telling that TH13 will be in the winter update or confirmed for January, this is nothing that guessiing it. Supercell doesn’t know themselves so how should we expect anything?!
Sorry for lowering expectations here but I needed to say that.
What Town Hall 13 Will Be
Now let’s talk about what Town Hall 13 will be and there’s also a lot that will come into play here:
- Will there be a new hero? TH7… TH9… TH11… but how will that change the game with 4 heroes?
- What about the Giga Tesla? Will they remove it and get another defense there? They said they did that to not have to make the map even larger so might a new TH13 defense be on the Clan Castle? If so, how will this develop in TH14? Will there be a defense on the Spell Factory? 😉
- What theme will it be? Town Hall 12 picked up the electric theme from the Hidden Teslas and that the original blue walls had before they became the Lava walls. There’s currently no unconnected theme in the game so there needs to come something completely new.
Supercell said before the release of Town Hall 12, they don’t want to release new Town Hall level to just get new levels of defenses and new troops and spells into the game, “they want to do something unique”… I remember that sentence from Darian very clearly because I’m angry every time when I think about it.
The “unique” was just placing the defense on top of the Town Hall and everything else was just new levels of everything… Siege Machines and everything else was introduced in own updates so I don’t count that towards Town Hall 12.
The good thing about all of this is that the game is constantly evolving if you look back 2-4 years when there wasn’t much going on besides farming for upgrades and doing Clan Wars and Supercell understands that they need to do that to keep the game attractive.
I’m still looking forward what they will bring and I also like how they changed their communication and also how new content is introduced into the game in the past 1-2 years and I hope that the new Town Hall will really be more than just some Archer Towers Level 22 combined with a defense on top of the Clan Castle 😀
Sorry if I broke some high expectations with my personal opinion here but maybe I will save some of you being frustrated in the end.
Looking forward to discuss TH13 or anything else related to what’s coming in Clash of Clans with you in the comments below 🙂
