Share: twitterTweet facebookShare

Supercell has released its winter update for its popular game Clash of Clans. Aside from snow on your village and animations of the fluffy white stuff, there’s a new layout editor to save different home and war bases.

Other ‘new goodies’ include: level 12 gold mines and elixir collectors at town hall 8; level 7 giants for those at town hall 10; and the ability to compare clans with those in local leaderboards.

The full list of changes are below:

Other improvements

  • Under attack? You can now watch a live replay while waiting to load your Village!
  • Hero ability icons now show remaining hit points and will start flashing when low – use their ability to recover some HP!
  • Resume boost button now shows how much time is remaining for the boost
  • Improved level display for troops/heroes/spells
  • Pending join requests are now limited to 10 per clan to prevent spamming (additional join requests cannot be sent)

Economy balancing

  • Upgrading Walls with Elixir is now available only when upgrading to Wall level 9 and higher
  • The first Dark Elixir Drill is now available at Town Hall 7
  • The second Dark Elixir Drill is now available at Town Hall 8
  • Dark Elixir Drill maximum capacity has been increased on all levels

Combat balancing

  • Archer Towers now shoot twice as fast to better take down weak hordes (total damage remains unchanged)
  • Inferno Towers now shoot for a longer time before getting depleted (loading cost remains the same)
  • Army camps have heavily decreased hit points – no more stubborn campfires!
  • Cannons, Barracks, Laboratory, Spell Factory and Dark Elixir Drills have higher HP on almost all levels
  • Hitpoint values have been adjusted slightly for many other buildings
  • Lava Pup HP has been slightly decreased

Back in October we told you about the game’s Halloween update and how we had just started playing the game. Well, I hate to say it but I’m full-on addicted now (Town Hall 7 now)–you guys should have warned me. This is the first game where I’ve succumbed to in-app purchases for gems, but luckily they were funded by Rogers.
