The hit mobile game Clash of Clans is over five years old, and it’s still going strong. Now that the Builders Base is a year old, what’s next? We’re expecting a lot of updates in 2018, and with that in mind here’s what might be coming and what we want to see next.
Now that players have two villages, more clan war options, and special events, there’s a lot going on. However, that also means there is plenty of room for exciting new changes, game modes, and additional features. We know Town Hall 12 is coming eventually, but here are a few other things we want too.
What’s next for Clash of Clans? Town Hall 12 of course, along with Builder Hall 9 and a few other things. For those keeping track, Town Hall 11 arrived in December 2015, so it’s almost three years old. It’s also the end-game in Clash, at least for now.
We have no concrete evidence that Town Hall 12 is coming soon, although talk at the Clash of Clans forum suggests it could be this summer, or in the fall. In fact, the last major update was one year ago, in May, the Builder Base. So, sometime in the next few months makes perfect sense for Town Hall 12.
That said, the main village is only one aspect of the game. The Builder Base is starting to mature, and Supercell could take a bunch of different directions for the future. Blend both villages into one, let players use both for Clan Wars, or just keep each one separate and continue to improve them.
New troops and balance changes can only take things so far when the game is over five years old. We need some drastic new changes. Excitement is starting to fade, and prices for upgrades continue to rise to the point that they’re out of reach for many. As a max Town Hall 11, I only play to finish my three daily Builder Base attacks. Even with Clan Wars, things just aren’t exciting anymore.
With that in mind, here are some potential new features or changes we want or expect in 2018. These are changes based on what the community wants, what I want as a Town Hall 11, and a few general changes we want to see. Whether they’re to Builders Base or both villages.
