Clash of Clans 2017 Update: 8 Things We Want Next

Recently Clash of Clans updates have slowed down and the game is getting stale. In fact, only two have been released since October of 2016. However, a brand new March Clash of Clans update has been revealed, and teasers suggest something huge is coming in the near future. Read on for what to know, and what we want to see next.

The developers at Supercell have been listening to feedback, and made countless changes to improve the overall balance. And while lately the game has started to slow down, they haven’t. In fact, the March update has welcomed changes, and more are coming in 2017.

Lately they’ve added a Bomb Tower, stronger Air Defense, special offers and even special events. That isn’t enough though. Now that things are more balanced than ever before, what’s next? We’re not sure, but here are a few changes that we’d love to see in the future.

Confirmed on Twitter, the “Battleship” is coming soon…

Town Hall 11 has been available for over a year, and is getting stronger than ever. Considering they’ve added a third hero, a Bomb Tower, EAGLE and more, we also received 25 more walls in March, again.

Over the past year all of the exciting news has been about Clash Royale, not Clash of Clans. That said, they are two completely different developer teams at Supercell. And while we thought they’ve been quiet for no reason, something huge is coming. We’re hearing a “game-changing” update will arrive in 2017. This will surge the game back to its old popularity, get players enjoying it again, and appeal to millions of new gamers. How though, we’re not sure yet. Check out the video below, and then our slideshow with leaked photos and some speculation.

New troops and balance changes can only go so far after a game has been available for 3-4 years. Excitement is starting to fade, and newcomers are disappearing by the day. As a nearly maxed TH11 I rarely play anymore. The video above explains what’s coming in March, and hints that something big is coming. All of the popular YouTubers are saying something similar.

Below is a collection of images for new features or possible changes based on what the community wants, what I want as a Town Hall 11, and just in general. Most of these will likely never see the light of day, while some may arrive in a different fashion. Here’s a few features we want to see in the next Clash of Clans update. It’s worth nothing that the official Clash with Ash account believes the “ship” update is coming soon, and will change the game forever.

Gem Mine

Gem Mine

Every single time Clash of Clans posts to Twitter or Facebook, somewhere in the comments someone asks for this. It's what makes the developers money, so we're pretty sure it will never, ever happen, but it's possible.

Just like we mine gold, elixir, and dark elixir, we want a Gem Mine to be added as an option to buy. This could only give users one Gem a day, which is the most valuable in-game currency. Rather than thousands per day, just one, or two. This wouldn't be enough to drastically dig into the pockets of the developers, but would give gamers something to collect, save up, and use in the future. The special events help, but we need more. 

Those who are willing to slowly save up gems over the long haul could use this to their advantage. As long as we don't get too many, this shouldn't be too much of an issue, and be worthwhile for Supercell to add to Clash of Clans. Add in the fact that there is a gem storage, they can be stolen during attacks, just like regular loot. Making the game even more interesting, and giving users more of an incentive to not only use them, but attack when someone is sitting on a pile of gems.

I don't see it ever happening, but it's one of many things everyone wants in the next (and all) Clash of Clans update.
