The first big update to the Clash of Clans Builder Base just arrived and added plenty of new content for gamers. Here we’ll discuss some of the most important changes, what’s new like the Night Witch, and what to expect from Builder Hall 6. Not to mention new additions to the original game.
Supercell added the Builder Base to Clash of Clans in May, and since the release gamers have voiced their frustrations. From not having enough troops, the battle limits that slows down progress, to game balance and more.
And while some of that changed, the update is mainly geared at new content and Builder Hall 6. We aren’t expecting some of these early problems to get solved right away. Still, this is an exciting update you’ll want to know about.
Sadly the “loot limit” isn’t going away anytime soon, and one of the best features, the Clock Tower, lost 50% of its abilities to slow down game progression. There are other changes and a few update features that got removed at the last minute. Click here for more details.
What’s New in the Builder Hall 4 Update
- New Night Witch: Spawns Bats and wrecks havoc on bases, more spawn after she dies (Builder Barrack level 8)
- New Roaster Defense: Similar to the Inferno Tower only this is more like a flame thrower. A perfect counter to roast down swarms of incoming bats (hits ground and air troops)
- New 5th Army Camp: (Canceled, and was not a part of the update)
- Levels 11-12 for all troops at Star Laboratory level 6
- Level 6-10 upgrades for the Battle Machine
Additionally, Supercell is adding more defensive buildings and traps to help balance gameplay, as if attacks weren’t hard enough already. Below is a list of all the new builders coming in BH6.
- +1 Archer Tower
- Another Crusher Defense
- One more exploding Mine
- A second Mega Mine
- Four more wall sections
Clock Tower Changes
One of our favorite features in the Builder Base is the Clock Tower. A building that speeds up progress throughout the entire game. Supercell felt it had too much value and cut down on its effectiveness. However, the cooldown period is 7 hours instead of 8, so players can use the Clock Tower three times per day.
- Clock Tower cooldown reduced from 8 hours to 7 hours
- Duration reduced by 50% to 2.5 minutes (from 5 minutes, upgrades will apply)
- Clock Tower speed multiplier reduced from 10x to 8x
Other Builder Base 6 Updates
Another exciting new feature is “Watch Live” which will allow players to watch attacks on their base live in real-time if they finish the battle first. This is one of the most requested features. Then, expect these other small changes.
- Resource Collectors, Storages, Gem Mine, and Clock Tower upgrades to level 6
- A single Archer Tower in your Town Hall can now be Geared Up, similarly to the Cannon. Requires Builder Base Archer Tower Level 6 and Home Village Archer Tower Level 10.
- Players who have created accounts in India will now be placed in a Global Chat channel specifically created for their region. We want to ensure players are able to communicate with each other, find like-minded Clashers, and create communities of their own and we feel this is a step in a direction to help facilitate this.
YouTubers had early access to many of these changes, along with live gameplay footage of the two new troops Night Witch and the Roaster. Take a peek below and try them yourself at Builder Hall 6.
Town Hall Upgrades (Original Base)
A big problem with the Builders Base update and this upcoming update is the lack of new content for the original game. Millions of players love Clash of Clans and have enjoyed it for over 3-4 years. Thankfully, Supercell did a big round of balance changes, lowered upgrade times, and cut costs in the original game.
Supercell announced a June balance change update for Clash of Clans, and here are all the details. There are tons of discounts on prices and upgrade times, new troop and building levels, and changes to offensive cards. However, there are no new troops or defenses for players.
This update arrived on June 27th and is available now in the Google and Apple App stores. This requires a full update to the game. Additionally, some small user interface tweaks were made for Android devices like the Galaxy S8 and some Clash bugs fixed. Give it a try today.
