Yes, Supercell just unleashed its biggest update in over two years, if not longer. The most exciting thing about Town Hall 12 is that it’ll fight back and help defend your village. Town Hall 12 is the first weaponized Clash Town Hall. Once engaged, the building turns into a new Giga Tesla loaded with firepower and electricity. To combat that, we’re getting a new Electro Dragon that will help destroy everything in its path. Not to mention dozens of changes we’ll detail below.

Clash of Clans Town Hall 12 Update Highlights (Important Stuff)

There are far too many changes to mention in one post. However, we’ll highlight some of the most important changes in our bullet list below. Otherwise, click here and click here for more details, or read the full TH12 release notes.

  • Army Camp level 10 (+5 each camp at TH12)
  • Wall Ring price drop from 200 Gems to 100 Gems
  • Each Wall Ring covers 1M in resources
  • Town Hall 12 Gold & Elixir Storage increased to 12 Million, Dark Elixir 240k
  • Substantial price discount on walls
  • Star Bonus Reward drastically increased
  • Winnings in Clan Wars increased from 600% to 700%, draw increased to 350%, loss from 180 to 300%
  • Major changes to Freeze spell, lightning spell, housing space, training time & cost, and more
  • Miner Movement speed increased from 250 to 400, hides in 0.6 seconds (down from 1.2)
  • Builder Base gets 20 New Wall Pieces (4 segments)
  • Removed Eagle Artillery 3x damage bonus to Golems and more
  • Siege Workshop (Battle Blimp & Wall Wrecker)
  • Players must place all available builders before upgrading their Town Hall level (prevents engineered bases)
  • Electro Dragon is a powerful new troop.

Can you see the new Siege Workshop in the photo above? Afer the first few big announcements, Supercell has address problems in the game, community complaints, fixed engineered bases, then added a new gameplay mechanic and the first new troop in over 2 years. Basically, this is a massive update through and through.

Siege Machines will completely change how players attack. You can brew a Battle Blimp or a Wall Wrecker, then put it in the clan castle. These two machines carry your troops, and you can deploy the Clan Castle siege troops when and where you want. The Battle Blimp and Wall Wrecker blast walls or fly over walls and go straight toward the Town Hall, or the Eagle.

These two new “tanks” will make a major difference in how players attack, strategize, and use Clan Castle troops. And remember, that’s on top of higher troop levels, more powerful spells, and the Electro Dragon. Only Town Hall 12 can get the Siege Machines, but they can donate them to Clan members TH6 and above.

Town Hall 12 Giga Tesla

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Town Hall 12, aside from all the upgrades and changes, is that it’s the first weaponized Town Hall that will shoot back at its attackers. After you upgrade to TH12, you can upgrade it again to unlock the defensive side, the Giga Tesla. This will likely be an expensive and time-consuming update, but one absolutely worth waiting for.

Once you unlock the Giga Tesla your Town Hall will defend the village from incoming attackers. Once attacked, the Giga Tesla will emerge and fire beams of electricity at the enemy. It will target one troop at a time, but you can upgrade the Giga Tesla to level 5.

At level 5, the Giga Tesla does massive amounts of damage, targets 4 troops at a time, and has a new ability just like the Barbarian King or Queen. When the attackers take down your Town Hall 12, if it’s a level 5 Giga Tesla, it will explode doing massive amounts of area damage as a last-ditch effort to save your village. Even a level 1 Town Hall 12 just destroyed my entire army.

The Electro Dragon is a direct answer and counters the Giga Tesla. Not to mention the Siege Machines will help attackers reach the Town Hall before it destroys everything.

Clash of Clans Update Problems

With an update of this size and caliber, problems are bound to happen. We’re already seeing lots of complaints about people who can’t load the game or find the update, missing wars, and Clash of Clans not compatible bugs, to name a few.

Look through our detailed Clash Problems and Fixes post if you’re dealing with anything. Expect an update or two this week to fix any little issues.

Other Details & What’s Next

Sadly, we didn’t get a Builder Base 9 this time. However, this is a massive update that delivers tons of changes and more content than we’ve seen in a few years. Look out for another update later this week, then a bigger Clash of Clans July update to work out any Town Hall 12 kinks. We do expect Builder Base 9 in the near future, so keep an eye out for more details.

After playing this game for nearly 6 years, are you excited for Town Hall 12? Let us know in the comments below. I just like the idea of my Town Hall exploding and taking out an entire army of Bowlers at once.

Clash of Clans 2018 Update: 8 Things We Want Next

Versus Battles in the Main Village

Versus Battles in the Main Village

The home village and the Builders Base are completely different. They each have pros and cons, or strengths and weaknesses. However, one thing we see often and want is versus battles in the main village. Basically, something to make it exciting again.

In Builders Base you don't lose gold or elixir from battles, and instead, battle someone head-on and whoever deals the most damage gets the loot. This way we don't lose tons of resources and don't have to worry about gold or elixir while we battle.

Wouldn't it be nice if Supercell added the same vs battles to the regular base? Would it even work? Right now you can attack people with the battle button, Clan Wars, or Clan Games. That's it, but we want one more option. Versus would be a perfect way to earn more money and practice attacks without worrying about competing. Not to mention every percentage counts, and huge bases in the home village mean these will be very tight matches.

The only potential problem is matchmaking, and ensuring these vs battles are fair. With such big bases and tons of defensive structures, finding a fair balance is likely a huge challenge for the developers. I'm even up for two clan members fight two people from another clan, and the highest percentage and stars win. A new 2v2 mode, maybe.
