Clash of Clans August 2017 Update: 5 Things to Know



Another big Clash of Clans update is coming in August, known as the 5th-anniversary update. At the same time, a lot of strange events are going on inside the game right now. In case you missed it, the Builder in Clash of Clans left our villages, and Builder Huts have for sale signs on them. Big changes are coming soon. Here’s what you need to know and what we think is coming next.

Currently, there is a one-gem boost in Clash of Clans, and the Battle Ram from Clash Royale made a brief appearance. Now, Giants are doing upgrades instead of builders. It’s an odd change, but just one of many that are coming soon. While most the recent updates were for the Builder Base, our original bases are about to get something new.

Is the Builder leaving Clash of Clans for good? If he’s gone, who is going to do upgrades and build walls? These are important questions. Additionally, you’ll want to know what is coming next or what rumors believe are coming next. We’ll cover that and more in our slideshow below.

If you head to Clash of Clans right now and check your village you’ll see some odd things. There are for sale signs on the Builder Huts, and the builders are completely missing. Are they actually going to sell our huts? Because most players spent real money to get more and upgrade faster. We’ll have to wait and see. Check out the teaser video above from Supercell.

We’re hearing they’ll return eventually, and hopefully with new skills and tricks. Potentially adding new aspects to the game learned from their journey.

For now, Giants are doing upgrades as the builders have gone missing. Before that, the Barbarians were in charge. We can expect Wizards and even the Witch to take over next. This month the developers have a bunch of special events planned to celebrate the five-year anniversary. Once those end, we should start to hear more information about the August Clash of Clans update.

Everything is pretty much a mystery, but we do have a few potential ideas, clues and information for gamers. Here’s what we know so far, what rumors suggest, and what to expect from the next Clash release.

Builders Will Return

Builders Will Return

Right now the Clash of Clans community is up in arms about this small change. People are worried the Builders are gone for good. The main reason is that Builder Huts cost real money. Each player received one at the beginning, and the game recommended we spend our first free gems to buy another one. 

Gems cost real money, a lot of money. I've spent a lot of money and have four Builder Huts. If they truly are for sale, will I get the money back? Or some gold and elixir? Who knows. 

Leaks and rumors suggest that nothing crazy is happening, this is just for fun. We've seen reports and videos showing a redesigned builder base will return with the August update. Our image above is one potential design change. 

However, another leakster said the new Builder Huts will turn into a defense, where troops come out to fight off incoming attacks. Right now Builder Huts deploy Giants to help defend your village during battle. It's safe to say they aren't going anywhere. Things are certainly a mystery, but we aren't expecting any major changes or the Builder to get removed from the game.

    well seems like fun for some, but i cant build or get trees, says my builder is busy with a cannon, wants 350 gems to finish, yet nothing is being built in my town.. sucks no to have a builder, and the game owners want 350 gems from me to finish a cannon that is not being updated… oh well time to try out one of the thousands other game applications.. way to loose your customers ..
