Version 10

Version 10.??? - 29th June 2018

Balance Changes:

Version 10.??? - 26th June 2018

Main patch notes can be found here: June 26 2018 update

Upgrade Times Reworked!

Upgrade times up to Town Hall 11 have been reduced:

  • Home Village building upgrade times reduced (by up to 50%)
  • Many troop upgrade times reduced, as are some spell upgrade times
  • Hero upgrade times reduced (up to level 39)

Also: Hero regeneration times reduced across all levels

Version 10.322.4 (?) - 11th June 2018 "Town Hall 12"

From this update, the minimum required system versions raised to iOS 9 and Android 4.1.

Town Hall 12 is Here!

Town Hall 12 itself is now a defensive structure capable of self-defending. If an opponent so much as scratches the paint, the Giga Tesla will emerge. The bigger brother of the Tesla family of defenses, the Giga Tesla fires beams of electricity at its attackers, doing lots of damage in retaliation for ruining its pristine paint palate.

The Giga Tesla will have 5 upgrade levels available. Each level increases how many opponents the Giga Tesla can target. Once your Giga Tesla is upgraded to its 5th level, you'll unlock the Giga Tesla's final ability: the Town Hall itself turns into a massive bomb doing blast damage to surrounding opponents.

Siege Workshop & Siege Machines

Deliver your Clan Castle reinforcements directly into the heart of your enemy’s base!

Siege Machines are mobile Clan Castles trained in the Siege Workshop, a new building available to Town Hall 12 players and will carry and protect your Clan Castle reinforcements into combat. While the Siege Workshop can only be built by Town Hall 12 villages, Siege Machines can be donated to Clan mates of Clan Castle level 6 or higher.

The Wall Wrecker

The Wall Wrecker will plow through Wall pieces (doing damage x10) and will hammer away at any other building along its path. Not only does the Wall Wrecker provide a way to shield your Clan Castle troops from oncoming assaults, it opens up new strategies for funneling your army as the Wrecker clears the way to victory!

Battle Blimp

The Battle Blimp soars over your enemy’s defenses. As it beelines directly for the enemy Town Hall, the Battle Blimp will drop a continuous barrage of bombs. The Battle Blimp is much faster than the Wall Wrecker but will take less damage before it ultimately is forced to drop its payload.

You can still choose to deploy your Clan Castle troops normally by pressing the Clan Badge icon and attack the old-fashioned way…or…you can choose to SMASH your way to the Town Hall with a SIEGE MACHINE!

When you deploy your Siege Machine, your Clan Castle troops are automatically placed inside and will remain inside until one of three things happens:

  1. they reach the enemy Town Hall
  2. the Siege Machine is destroyed or
  3. you self-destruct the Siege Machine to manually deploy your troops.

New Troop: Electro Dragon!

Available at Town Hall 11, the Electro Dragon can soak up a moderate amount of damage and dish out punishment that’ll make enemy villages quiver in fear. Its lightning breath weapon will strike its target and will continue along its path, chain-linking up to 5 different targets. When it receives fatal damage, it releases its stored energy as a final hail of lightning bolts!

New TH12 Buildings

New Troop Levels

Quality of Life Changes

Name Changes

  • You will be able to change your name more than once. The first name change remains free, but each name change will increase the price by 500 Gems to a maximum of 10,000 Gems. Each name change will include a 1-week cooldown period before you can change it again.
  • Now there is an improved feature that allows you to report offensive or policy-violating names directly from the player’s profile.

Clan Improvements

  • If the Clan Leader leaves the Clan, the Leader MUST assign a new Leader before they are able to leave the Clan.
  • Clan Castle sleep mode: Your Clan Castle can now toggle between “Guard” and “Sleep” modes. Sleep mode will prevent your Clan Castle troops from defending your village, keeping your reinforcements safe until you need them!
  • Copy base layouts: See a Clan mate’s village that you really like? When you visit your Clan mates’ villages, you will be able to copy their layout. Save precious time in redoing your base! This feature unlocks at Town Hall level 4 for the Home Village and Builder Hall 4 for the Builder Base. You are able to copy a base that is +1 or -1 level from your own.
  • The cooldown between sharing replays has been reduced from 30 minutes to 5 minutes.

Clan Games Improvements

  • New Clan Games Challenges have been added to take advantage of the new Town Hall 12 content!

War Tools Improvements

  • If an attacker has used all of their attacks in a Clan War, their target calls will now automatically be removed from the Clan War map.

April 9th marks the anniversary of this beloved feature and we have a special content release in celebration of Clan Wars.

War Tools Got an experienced War General your Clan relies on to dictate which bases to attack? Or perhaps you have a new recruit who could use some guidance during Clan Wars? The Clan War Tools are a new feature that allows you to add strategy notes on enemy bases and claim your targets!

During your Clan War, members in your war roster are able to tag an enemy base and leave a note on the Clan War map.

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

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!

NEW: 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

Favorite Target: Any
Damage Type: Single Target
Special Ability: Overcharge

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.
