Today on the official Clash of Clans forum Supercell employees confirmed the company is aiming to release this huge update on December 10th for Android and iPhone. The made sure to mention they’re aiming for the 10th, but that things are subject to change. Here’s what to know.

The link above is a detailed breakdown of almost everything that has been announced over the course of the last two weeks, and the video above is our final look at the new Eagle Artillery cannon coming to TH11 players.

Town Hall 11 is getting the most changes with this update, as it’s geared at players who’ve enjoyed Clash of Clans for nearly three years and have nothing left to do. There’s a new TH11, a 3rd hero, a fourth x-bow, higher wizard towers and the eagle defense, all which are only available for TH11. Yes, the third hero is only for Town Hall 11 players.

It’s clear that this update is for people who’ve played the game for a long time, but there are also changes across the board for current users who aren’t so high. Town Hall 9 will get access to freeze spells, to better take on infernos and Town Hall 10 players, spell donations from other clan mates and other changes. Higher loot bonuses have been included and more. There will be more money to be made, more bases to attack, and changes throughout for Shields and more. We can even attack through a shield, without losing it, and not worry about getting attacked immediately after.


Supercell won’t be giving players a shield for losing a Town Hall anymore, which took away from the fun and main goal of the game, to attack and defend. Now everyone just hides behind shields by leaving the Town Hall unprotected.

The update will make the Town Hall no longer grant a shield, so players need to protect it, and it will hold 1/5 of their total gold, elixir, and dark elixir. This means that between today and December 10th, everyone should redesign their base layouts and protect their Town Hall.

Hit the Clash of Clans forum for more details, and stay tuned for the update to arrive. It should be on December 10th, but a slight delay could put it closer to the end of the week. Once a maintenance break starts, we know the update is coming. Stay tuned, protect those Town Halls, and get ready for a revamped Clash experience.

Clash of Clans December Update: 6 Details for Players

Extra Defense at TH11

 1 / 6
Extra Defense at TH11

Earlier this week the developers confirmed that part of the update will bring lots of new buildings to Town Hall 11. If they E.A.G.L.E defensive building we saw in October wasn't dangerous enough, Town Hall 11 is going to be very tough. 

Town Hall 11 players will get a fourth x-bow, along with another Cannon, Archer Tower and Wizard Tower. Essentially allowing for tons of defense, making them extremely hard to take down. Hopefully the 3rd hero and upgrades across the board will help TH10 players have a chance at defeating an 11, but it's not looking likely at this point.

TH11 players will have huge bases, likely more walls, and a lot of new defenses to buy, save for, and slowly upgrade.
