Version 9.??? - 27th September 2017 "Builder Hall 7"

In this newest update for the Builder Base, we are introducing a bevy of upgrades including two units: the Giant Cannon defense and the Drop Ship air unit. We're also increasing the Versus Battle Rewards to 4000 trophies!

Here’s what you can expect to see in the Builder Hall 7 release, and make sure to scroll down to learn more about the latest round of War matchmaking improvements!

NEW: The Giant Cannon

What else says your base means serious business than a massive barrel capable of demolishing several troops in a single blast? The Giant Cannon is the ultimate deterrent against ground attacks. Its projectile is so effective, once released it will continue on clearing everything in its path until it reaches the end of the map! Watch Skeletons, Bombers, and Archers get tossed like confetti. Even the Battle Machine can only endure a couple hits before it’s taken out of commission.

Additional Defensive Buildings:

  • +1 Hidden Tesla
  • +1 Firecrackers
  • +1 Army Camp
  • +4 Wall segments (x20 wall pieces)

The addition of another Hidden Tesla and Firecrackers helps take care of those pesky Baby Dragon spam attacks and adding a fifth Army Camp gives you greater tactical flexibility as you advance your attack strategies with the new Drop Ship air unit. Along with the increased defenses, all of your buildings, traps (except for the Spring Traps), and walls can be upgraded to Level 7.

However, it’s the Giant Cannon that really makes your Builder Base defenses shine!

NEW: The Drop Ship

In your Town Hall, the Balloons drop explosives. However, in the Builder Base, these hot air attackers drop Skeletons in mass hordes to sow chaos and confusion among your opponent’s ground defenses. Use the Drop Ship to obfuscate your kill squads and ranged damage from ground defenses, or use them to clear ground defenses like the Giant Cannon to allow funneling.

New Offensive Levels:

Your offensive units gain benefits in the Builder Hall 7 update. Not only can your Troops be upgraded to level 14, but the Battle Machine can be upgraded to level 20 as well. Those upgrades come with a plethora of added bonuses too! Check out the perks you’ll receive when you upgrade your Troops and Battle Machine. And finally, enjoy the brand new Drop Ship air unit!

Level 14 Troop stats:

  • Raged Barbarians: +5 units per Army Camp
  • Sneaky Archers: +2 units per Army Camp
  • Boxer Giants: Improves the Power Punch ability
  • Beta Minion: Improves the Long Shot ability
  • Bomber: Improves the Big Bomb ability
  • Baby Dragon: Improves the Tantrum ability
  • Cannon Cart: +20 damage per second
  • Night Witch: +20% Bat spawning speed

Last but not least...

Clan War Matchmaking algorithm changes.

With the recent changes implemented to the Clan War matchmaking algorithm, based on the feedback we have been receiving and also after reviewing our data, we felt further changes needed to be implemented. These changes will reflect a more accurate measurement of a player’s and clan’s offensive power. Furthermore, we are also adjusting the search time required to find a better War match. This will increase the search duration in some cases but not all, and allows the system longer to find a more even match.

Version 9.105.4 - 27th June 2017

Big news Clashers!

Greetings Chief!

As we continue to develop Clash of Clans, we will be releasing updates, features, balance changes, and new content for both the Builder Base and the Town Hall. While we are proud of our accomplishments with the Builder Base, rest assured we are not forgetting about the Town Hall – in fact this update is primarily focused on your Town Hall (although there is a much requested feature for the Builder Base listed at the end!). So check out what we have in store for your Town Hall below!

New defensive content

NEW: Cannon level 15 (TH11)

  • Cannon levels 10-14 upgrade time or cost has been discounted

NEW: Archer Tower level 15 (TH11)

  • Archer Tower levels 9-14 upgrade time or cost has been discounted

NEW: Inferno Tower level 5 (TH11)

  • Inferno Tower levels 2-4 upgrade time or cost has been discounted
  • Inferno Tower level 4 multi-mode damage has been increased
  • Inferno Tower single-mode 1st stage damage has been changed to match multi-mode damage

New offensive content

Conversely, we have also added additional levels along with balance updates to the following Troops to ensure additional offensive power is available as well.

NEW: P.E.K.K.A. level 6 (TH11)

  • P.E.K.K.A. upgrade time or costs have been discounted across ALL levels

NEW: Wizard level 8 (TH11)

  • Wizard levels 6-7 upgrade time or costs have been discounted

NEW: Healer level 5 (TH11)

NEW: Miner level 5 (TH11)

  • Miner upgrade time or costs have been discounted across ALL levels
  • Miner level 3 is now available at Town Hall 10 (was at TH11)
  • Miner levels 2-5 hitpoints have been increased

NEW: Wall Breaker level 7 (TH11)

  • Wall Breaker upgrade time or costs have been discounted across ALL levels

Dragon levels 4-6 hitpoints have been increased

Hog Rider levels 6-7 hitpoints have been increased

Builder Base

With the upcoming Builder Hall 6 Invitational Tournament on the horizon, we wanted to share with you the new features being released in this next content update. In this upcoming release, we are adding two incredible new units to the Builder Base while also increasing the level cap for units already available.

Here are the features you can expect to see in the Builder Hall 6 release, including the two new units.


  • +1 Archer Tower
  • +1 Crusher
  • +1 Mine
  • +1 Mega Mine
  • +4 Wall sections

Yes you read that right...a second Crusher, the Bane of Barbarians, Affliction of Archers (who get too close), and Jammer of Giants (ok I know that's rough alliteration). Furthermore, in correspondence to the Builder Hall's increased level, all defenses, traps, and walls can now be upgraded to Level 6. The only exception to this is the Spring Trap, which can be upgraded to Level 4.


  • Levels 11-12 for all Troops after upgrading the Star Laboratory to Level 6
  • Levels 6-10 for the Battle Machine


Resource Collectors, Storages, Gem Mine, and Clock Tower can be upgraded to Level 6 A single Archer Tower in your Town Hall can now be Geared Up, similarly to the Cannon. Requires Builder Base Archer Tower Level 6 and Home Village Archer Tower Level 10. Players who have created accounts in India will now be placed in a Global Chat channel specifically created for their region. We want to ensure players are able to communicate with each other, find like-minded Clashers, and create communities of their own and we feel this is a step in a direction to help facilitate this.


  • Clock Tower cooldown reduced from 8 hours to 7 hours
  • Clock Tower duration reduced by 50% to 2.5 minutes
  • Clock Tower speed multiplier reduced from 10x to 8x

After careful consideration we felt the Clock Tower provides too much free upgrade time. We are changing the Clock Tower cooldown from 8 hours to 7 hours and reducing the duration by 50%. We felt the Clock Tower provided progress too rapidly and that it required rebalancing to bring it in line with relative upgrade times. Reducing its cooldown will allow it to be boosted 3 times per day rather than 2.

NEW: The Night Witch The Witch's nocturnal sibling, the Night Witch is available once you upgrade your Builder Barracks to Level 8. Though there are some similarities between the Wtich and the Night Witch, there are a few differences that make her stand out as well. Check out these abilities:

  • The Night Witch does ranged attacks that hit both ground and air units
  • Spawns bats that attack ground and air units
  • Will spawn into a swarm of bats after receiving fatal damage

The Night Witch is a great way to take out those pesky Crushers, which is why we're introducing the Woe of the Night Witch: The Roaster.

NEW: The Roaster We couldn't add a cool offensive unit without coming up with a way to defend against it. The Roaster is a great solution against the Night Witch. It is a flame-spitting defensive building that will bathe your foes in scalding plasma with the following details:

  • Range of 7 tiles
  • Burst fires 15 shots
  • At Level 6 it does 16 damage per shot
  • Hits ground and air units
  • Does Area Splash type damage

Version 9.24.1 - 22nd May 2017 "Builder Hall Release"

From this update, the minimum required system versions raised to iOS 7.

Set Sail for a New World

Welcome to the Builder Base, Chief! This exciting new land is run by the Master Builder. He’s your only Builder on this side of the sea, but his superior smarts have helped him develop some awesome new advancements. Once you make it to Town Hall 4 at your home village, you can rebuild the boat and set sail for the other side.

Things work a little differently in this realm. For starters, the Builder Base is powered by different resources. The elixir and gold you collect over here can’t be used in your home village, but Gems will cross over. And a brand new world means brand new achievements. Complete them all!

New Features

Thanks to the Master Builder’s talented touch, you’ll see interesting twists on familiar buildings, such as:

  • The Archer Tower's switch toggles between fast attack or long range.
  • The Multi Mortar's multi-barreled attack is tough for troops to dodge

New Buildings

He’s also dreamed up some exciting new buildings! These brand new additions include:

  • Crusher: A powerful new defense that does exactly what it sounds like— crush enemies!
  • Push Trap: Scatter attacking armies by tossing troops in a direction of your choosing.
  • Gem Mine: Collect gems over time! Upgrade it to increase its output.
  • Clock Tower: Boost the speed of everything in the Builder Base, from build time to resource mining!

New Abilities

The crystallized elixir found on this side has given familiar faces a new look with new tricks that they can use in combat! Upgraded troops gain powerful special abilities, such as:

  • Sneaky Archer: "Cloak" makes her invisible to enemy defenses for a short period of time.
  • Boxer Giant: "Power Punch" makes his first attack do huge damage!

New Troops

The Master Builder has harnessed the power of this new resource to train up new troops. For example:

  • Bomber: Tosses big bombs that can blow up several buildings at once.
  • Cannon Cart: A four-wheeling fortification brought to the front line.

New Hero

Some heroes are born, others are built. Once unlocked at Builder Hall 5, the Master Builder will join the fight in his Battle Machine! Upgrade this mechanical monster to level 5 to unlock its “Electric Hammer” ability.

New Battle Mode: Versus Mode

Introducing a brand new way to fight: Versus Battle! This new battle style lets you take on opponents in a head-to-head attacking competition! Similar to Clan Wars, both competitors attack one another and the best attack wins the prize. Resources won’t be lost on defense.

Win three Versus Battles per day to get the biggest loot payout, then continue battling for new Versus Trophies. Follow the competition on the new leaderboard!

New Game Mechanics

The Builder Base’s setup has ease of management top of mind. Over here troops train automatically, Walls come in segments and you cannot be attacked while away. Troops are trained in groups and each Army Camp holds one group at a time. Upgrade troops to fit more units per camp and build more camps to diversify your ranks. With no Master Wizards around spells haven't made it to these shores, so take advantage of your troops' special abilities instead!

Where Old Meets New

Leverage the Master Builder’s expertise to enhance your home village. Once your Cannon is at a high enough level, you’ll see a “Gear Up” option when you tap on it. Gearing Up this defense will give it the same awesome abilities as its Builder Base counterpart: the Double Cannon! “Gear Up” is only available when the Master Builder isn’t busy in the Builder Base. It’s a long trip, so make sure he’s free. Keep an eye out for more Gear Up options in the future, too!
