Version 7.200 - 22nd October 2015 "Halloween Is Coming"[]

A Frightful Night Returns To Clash

For a limited time, experience the spooky Halloween Clash theme with possessed Poison Spells, bubbling Cauldron obstacles and more!

It's that time of the year again! So here's a spooky Halloween update with a couple of limited-time treats:

  • Harvest some bonus Elixir from special Halloween Cauldron obstacles.
  • 1-gem Spell Factory boost special is back! Running through Halloween weekend!

Version 7.200.7 - 9th September 2015 "Spell revamp & War tiebreaker"[]

Spell Superiority and a Clan War Tiebreaker!

  • Improved Lightning, Poison, Earthquake and Freeze spells!
  • Lightning Spell level 7 and 25 new Wall pieces have been added to Town Hall level 10.
  • Total Destruction is now a Clan Wars tiebreaker – if the score is even at the end of the war, the Clan with more destruction percentage in their best attacks will be the victor!
  • Attack and Defense tabs have be added to Clan tabs in the War Stats to quickly see all best attacks in the war for either clan.
  • The appearance of Wall level 11 has been revamped and looks TOTALLY EPIC.

Recharged Lightning Spell

  • Increased damage for Lightning Spell levels 5 and 6.
  • Lightning Spell bolts now strike closer together to miss less often.
  • Lightning Spell level 6 is now available at Town Hall 9.

Reworked Poison Spell

  • Troops in Poison Spells now take less damage at first, but much more over time.
  • Poison Spell damage now increases to huge amounts and lingers after leaving the spell.
  • Poison Spells now also reduce the attack rate of defending Troops.

Reworked Earthquake Spell

  • Earthquake Spells deal much more damage, regardless of a building's current hitpoints.
  • Repeated Earthquake Spells now deal diminishing damage to the same buildings.
  • Four Earthquake Spells will still always destroy any level of Wall!.
  • There are no longer any special "building execution rules" for Earthquake spells - a building just needs to be reduced to 0 HP.
  • Example: If an Earthquake Spell has 25% damage, the first Earthquake spell cast on a building will ALWAYS deal 25% of maximum HP damage, thus destroying any building with under 25% HP remaining. Repeated Earthquake Spells on the same building deal less damage: 25/3 %, 25/5 %. 25/7 %, etc. This diminishing damage means that it is still impossible to destroy buildings only using Earthquake Spells.

Game Balancing

  • Freeze Spells now also affect defending air troops.
  • Lava Hounds can no longer target air troops.
  • Attacking troops will now engage defending troops from further away.
  • Titan III and Titan II Leagues can now buy 1 week shields from the Shop.
