Supercell has brought about the biggest update ever for Clash of Clans today, as it introduces Town Hall 11, the new Grand Warden hero, plus a new defence known as the Eagle Artillery.
Beyond changes at Town Hall 11, Supercell has also tweaked troop levels, defense levels and now you can donate a dark spell to clan members. The revamped Shield system means you can attack at anytime now, plus your Town Hall also acts as a storage, so say good-bye to trophy sniping.
Below are the release notes from Supercell on everything new in this massive update:

Since we started playing this (damn) game last year, we’re now at a mid-to-high level Town Hall 9, and we’ve outlasted some of our friends that told us to play this game. Let us know what you think of this update—I think it will make the game refreshing again, despite the changes.
