Clash of Clans Update: Clan War Matchmaking Improved



While Supercell recently released an all-new spin off game of Clash of Clans called Clash Royale, the company isn’t abandoning the original. In fact, a huge Clash of Clans update is coming in March or early April with major changes to Clan Wars, adding a new troop for Town Hall 10, and more. Here’s what players need to know.

Back in February we learned about a big Clash of Clans 2016 update coming in March, but now the company is sharing more details and being very transparent about its plans moving forward.

Clash of Clans now has over 100 million daily players, and is one of the most popular mobile games on the planet. As a result millions of players want to know what’s new and coming soon, what’s changing, how they plan to fix Clan War mismatches and more. We have all the details below.


In February Supercell, the developers behind the game, shared some important details on Facebook. Confirming there will be a big update in March or April aimed at adding more features, fixing problems, and adding additional troops for Town Hall 10 players. Town Hall 10 was the max for a long time, but was recently replaced by TH11 and is completely outmatched.

The next update will introduce multiple new features, unlock another Dark Elixir troop or two at Town Hall 10, and more. However, that’s not the latest news. Last week Supercell made a major announcement on its forum about Clan Wars. As we all know, Clan Wars are a mess. Clans are often outmatched, facing very heavy armies that aren’t fair, rushed bases that look weak but have Inferno towers, and it’s becoming less fun. This update aims to fix that and more.

Clan War Changes

Recently Supercell’s lead Moderator and spokesperson Anoushka revealed a big revamp to Clan Wars is coming soon. Loads of under-the-hood changes will be made in an effort to make Clan Wars fun, competitive, and fair.

The entire matchmaking system has been overhauled to find better matches, even fights, and even pair clans that are on a loosing streak with other clans on a loosing streak. Not to mention wins will be taken into account. That way a 30 War wins group won’t be fighting a level 8 Clan with over 130 wins. That just isn’t fair, nor fun. Here’s the changelog:

The changes coming to Clan Wars matchmaking are as follows:

  1. War sizes 35v35 and 45v45 are being removed in order to boost available matches in other war sizes.
  2. Clan Wars matchmaking will place a much greater emphasis on defensive (village) progress, and less emphasis on offensive (army) progress.
  3. Powerful, late-game defenses and troops like Inferno Towers, Eagle Artillery and Grand Warden will have much greater matchmaking impact.
  4. Clan Wars matchmaking will favor matches between Clans with similar recent win/loss records in their recent wars.
  5. Team-versus-team compositional checks have been added to help weed out imbalanced war matchups.

A detailed explanation of what much of this means can be found here. Essentially the developers will be putting more emphasis on defensive units, and big units. So now a Town Hall 10 can’t have Town Hall 8 everything, but add Infernos. It will be matched against smaller opponents, but win because the huge Inferno towers.

Every detail, powerful defense, and more will all be considered during the matchmaking process. There will also be last minute team-vs-team checks to ensure the match-up is fair. This may cause matchmaking wait times to increase, but it will be worth it. Here is additional information.

According to Ash this will be a very welcomed update for Clash of Clans as a whole, and for the Clan War community. He explains that upgrading certain aspects of a base, but not the rest, will be crucial. Called a .5 system. Like a Town Hall 9.5 that has strong offense, but not defense. Allowing for a better match-up during war vs another Town Hall 9.

From everything we’re hearing it looks like Clans of Clans will be getting at least two big updates in the next few months. The first is rumored to arrive sometime in March with a new Town Hall 10 Dark Elixir troop, matchmaking improvements in Clan Wars, and other small things. Then over the course of the next few months more and more improvements will be made to refine Clash of Clans as a whole, not to mention the entire Clan War experience.

Clash of Clans 2017 Update: 8 Things We Want Next

More Gem Mines

More Gem Mines

Every time Clash of Clans posts to Twitter or Facebook, someone in the comments asks for a gem mine. We never thought this would ever happen, but it did. The May update finally added a Gem mine, but only to the Builders Base. Gems work in both villages, so it's helpful, but also very slow. In fact, it only produces a few gems a day and isn't really worth the cost to unlock it. 

Allow another Gem mine in the regular village or faster production. Nothing crazy like hundreds a day, just a few. Enough to mix things up for players without digging into Supercell pockets completely.

Those who are willing to slowly save up gems over the long haul could use this to their advantage. Then, like regular gold in the game, attackers should be able to steal your gems from Gem mines. We don't have a Gem storage but attackers should be able to earn a few. This could even give players an incentive to not only use them but attack when someone is sitting on a pile of gems.
