Clash of Clans 2016 Update: 4 New Details for Players

After the huge Clash of Clans update in December the game changed in a lot of ways. It added a lot of major changes for the better, but has also caused issues for a wide array of players. That said, another update is coming very soon with key improvements to the loot system. Today, we’ll go over four new details about the incoming update that players need to know about.

Since the update added Town Hall 11, new troops, a third hero, bigger maps and more, users have been complaining at the official Supercell forum. There are countless problems plaguing Clashers, money is hard to find or save, and upgrades have slowed to a halt. Don’t worry though, because this developer team is one of the best at balancing things out, and that’s exactly what’s coming.

Last week a Supercell staff member and forum moderator finally broke the silence and confirmed some major changes are coming to ease the situation. The company knows the game has changed a bit, and are making some quick improvements. Below we’ll explain all four big changes coming soon, and what they mean for gamers.

Clash of Clans is one of the most popular mobile games on the planet. It has over 100 million downloads on both Android and iOS, and is still one of the most popular and top-grossing games on both platforms. It has millions of dedicated players, and more are coming daily thanks to some neat new commercials being aired on TV.

The problem with the big update from December is that while it had good intentions to prevent cheaters, fix easy shields making the game unfair and more, it changed too much. As a result users can’t find bases to attack, are spending more money fighting than they earn, and can’t progress as fast as before. Making it more of a frustrating grind, rather than an enjoyable experience.

Supercell, the developers behind the hit game extended the one-gem resource boost to keep players happy, and this week announced four big changes coming to “fix the Clash economy” and add more money into the game for all players. The slideshow below is what we know will be coming, but a release date has yet to be announced.

Star Bonus (Daily Goals)

 Supercell announced yesterday that some big changes are coming in order to boost the economy and put more money back into the game. Loot that has gone missing since the latest update.

A new "Star Bonus" or daily goal will be rewarded to those who play every day. We've been asking for daily achievements for a while, and this is one form of that.

Once the next update arrives users will get a daily resource bonus of gold, elixir and dark (amounts unknown) in the form of a "Star Bonus" if they achieve 5 stars during multiplayer attacks each day. This should be relatively easy for most, and is a welcomed change. We'll know more details regarding how much in the near future.
