Events Main Banner

Events in Clash of Clans impact some aspect of gameplay for a limited time. Many events either enable training units or boosting various aspects (resource or army production) at reduced cost, or increase gameplay rewards (e.g. increasing the loot won from Clan Wars). Some events provide tasks that can be completed for additional Experience, Gems and/or Magic Items.

Players can view active and upcoming events in the Events tab accessed through the news button next to the Shop.

If event rewards can be claimed (i.e. if there is sufficient storage space for the Magic Item rewards, or there are no Magic Item rewards), they are awarded to the player immediately after they complete the event objective. If some rewards (i.e. Magic Items) cannot be claimed, they are held in the events tab and can be claimed at any time until the event expires. Attempting to claim the Magic Item reward while storage space does not permit will prompt the player to sell the excess Magic Item rewards for Gems.

Home Village Army Events

From the 2016 Christmas Update onwards, there has been a continuous series of events featuring certain troops or spells. These events are time-limited mini-achievements, in which players need to win a certain number of multiplayer battles, each with a certain number of the said troops, to claim some Experience, Gems, and/or Magic Items. Prior to this update, there were also several Events that featured troops, but which didn't reward gems.

Using the exact number of the said troops is not required; it's totally OK to use more than the number of the required troops, as long as at least one star is achieved. The troops in the Clan Castle also counted for the number of troops, and are essential for players with lower Town Hall levels that can't train the said troops by themselves. If the Town Hall level is low enough such that neither training nor requesting the said troop is possible, a number was still displayed, but the mini-achievement reward was unattainable unless you rushed the building.

For multi-troop events, there may be separate rewards for each individual troop, but players can aim for them simultaneously. The requirement for each individual troop was equal to the requirement of that troop's single troop event.

For most troop events, players needed to have at least one fifth of total Army Camp space possible at the Town Hall level being that troop, the number of troops required is rounded to the nearest integer. If the Town Hall level was not enough to unlock the said troop, the requirement became filling as many as possible to the maximum level of Clan Castle at the Town Hall level.

Below is a table about how many troops were needed in each type of event, assuming that the required number of troops is indeed one-fifth of the total Army Camp space.

The Town Hall level might be the sole factor of the troop requirement, regardless of whether or not the Barracks or Dark Barracks (to unlock the said troop), Army Camps and the Clan Castle are at the maximum level possible at the TH level. For example:

  • A new TH 9 with two level 4 Dark Barracks still requires 4 Witches for the Witch Event, and is therefore locked outside of the reward without using Gems or Magic Items to upgrade the Dark Barracks to level 5. If the Town Hall upgrade did not finish during the event, the event could possibly have been cleared at Town Hall 8 by using two Witches as Clan Castle troops.
  • A new TH 10 with four level 7 Army Camps requires 10 Balloons rather than 9 for the Balloon Event.

Army Discounts

This section describes content that has been replaced or removed from the game. This information is kept here for historical purposes.

Until the Summer 2022 update, these events also allowed players to train these featured troops or brew spells at reduced cost for a limited time. Most Events' discount rates ranged between 70-90% (i.e. reduced to 10-30% of normal cost) when a single unit was discounted in this manner; if such events discounted multiple units at the same time, the discount would often be lower (e.g. 50%).

In all these events, players got a chance to gain some resources by queuing just before the end of the event and unqueuing after the event ends. Theoretically, an Event of 90% discount on Electro Dragons and Jump Spells yielded the maximum amount of Elixir possible (964,800 Elixir) and an Event of 90% discount on Bowlers and Earthquake Spells yielded the maximum amount of Dark Elixir possible (18,561 Dark Elixir). For multi-troop events, players could also choose to get a mix of both resources.

The tables below was the number of resources obtainable this way at each Town Hall level, assuming a 90% discount (and no other modifiers from the Gold Pass or otherwise).

Star Bonus Events

  • During the Star Bonus events, the Star Bonuses are multiplied by a factor. If a Star Bonus Event lasts for n days, players are able to get a maximum of n+1 increased Star Bonuses during this event, probably having to waste some "Star Bonus Time", but still beneficial to do so.

    • Before the release of Town Hall 14, another "Hammer Jam" event occurred, reducing all upgrade costs in the Home Village by 50%. However, as Town Hall 14 released in the month of April, it didn't receive the "Winter Jam" name despite being the exact same event.
    • A "Hammer Jam" event occurred prior to the release of Town Hall 15 in October 2022.
    • A "Hammer Jam" event occurred prior to the release of Town Hall 16 in late November 2023 and early December 2023. This affected only building and trap costs, and did not affect Hero upgrade costs.
