There is no such thing as a single small doubt that there can be a Clash of Clans Update in December 2017, like yearly we’ll be getting at the very least a snow theme, a seasonal Christmas Tree and when taking a look at final 12 months very probably additionally a Clashmas Occasion with seasonal troops and Gem Boosts.
I feel most of us will agree that 2017 wasn’t an important 12 months for Clash of Clans in phrases of new content material (and I’m saying this though I’m having fun with Builder Base so much personality! and Darian already has been getting the joy excessive along with his announcement that there can be one thing good coming. Nicely, they’re engaged in it since could!
On this replace article, I’ll put up all necessary issues (rumors, my opinion and of course official statements) collectively to offer you guys a very good overview what’s coming – particularly those of you who don’t spend hours within the official discussion board and Reddit.
Clash of Clans December 2017 Update
Please word, the order is from the underside (outdated) to high (most up-to-date). For those who’re visiting this web page for the primary time and wish to get the entire story, you’ll want to start out from the underside.
Pleased Birthday Finland (December fifth, 2017):
This morning we had one other Upkeep Break for server maintenance, however the “downloading data” proper after made so much of folks hype once more. Actually, there was one thing that just a few folks acknowledged when opening up their recreation after the Upkeep Break within the Information part and that was a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINLAND!” entry which disappeared after only a few moments.
Tomorrow, on December sixth, Finland celebrated their 100 years independence from Russia and lots of corporations do celebration occasions in Finland for this event so far as I heard. To rejoice that, Supercell had added the Finnish Language Suomi to the sport however perhaps we’d see one thing extra tomorrow (perhaps a Worth Pack or particular occasion or one thing else) – nonetheless, this has nothing to do with the upcoming replace so far as I can inform.
Goblin Adjustments (December third, 2017)
Because the final replace there was a small change to the Goblin Map that some won’t have noticed – there are some names on the map that haven’t been there earlier than, see your self:
So essentially the fascinating query is: why does Supercell secretly replace a really outdated and outdated recreation function? I assume this was half of the “laying the foundation of future changes” half prior to now replace and the “Goblin King’s Hideout” on the very backside makes me take into consideration a brand new approach how the Goblin Map will work, like each day altering duties there that you just and your clan mates will be capable to unlock and in the long run get an excessive reward when doing this – I completely wish to level out that that is my private perception and it may be added one thing utterly totally different or perhaps even one thing that can get launched to a later level.
What I don’t consider is, and that’s what I’ve seen in so much of non-sense movies prior to nowadays, that there can be a brand new Hero coming to the sport for us just like the Goblin King (additionally there can’t be 2 kings and we have already got one). I quite take into consideration one thing just like an evil enemy like they’ve in Growth Seashore and perhaps add one thing to the Operations accessible there.
UPDATE! Apparently, these new names have been within the recreation records data since 2013! (Here’s the proof) So nonetheless the necessary query: why did Supercell activate them not too long ago when it was within the recreation records data for four years?!
Sneak Peeks Quickly (November 30th, 2017)
In accordance with Darian, we are going to see Sneak Peeks of the Update very quickly.
He additionally made clear yet another time that there gained’t be TH12 or BH8 coming:
I’m actually wanting ahead to see some actual stuff as a substitute of hints, however with the replacement cycle if the previous years I consider we are going to see the Sneak Peeks inside the subsequent 2 weeks as it might be arduous to consider that Supercell wouldn’t launch the replace earlier than Christmas…
Let’s Discuss Quests (November 28th, 2017)
I feel many of you could have heard the data that Darian advised the trace for the subsequent replace function will begin with the letter “Q” (see under within the Clash Discuss Interview #2). He additionally acknowledged that it’s one thing that many of us have been ready for a very long time so it’s fairly apparent that many have been serious about Quests.
I wish to decelerate expectations right here slightly bit since too excessive expectations prior to now 12 months have been leaving many of us disenchanted and there’s no actual proof that it’s actually about Quests! The letter “Q” can even have one thing to do with “Quality of Life Changes (Clouds, Matchmaking…)” or one thing totally different.
MasterMind did create a mockup within the function request discussion board again in 2013 with a number of photos how he hopes that Quests might appear like, so the image under that many of you could have been seeing as a “leak” is definitely a Three-year-old fan mockup, nothing else.
You’ll be able to see the entire fan request here in the original forum post from October 2013 within the official discussion board.
Please don’t get me flawed, I’d love having a strong implementation of quests in Clash of Clans and I actually hoped for it for a few years however simply because the letter “Q” has been thrown into the ring shouldn’t get our hopes an excessive amount of targeted and we’d see one thing very totally different. I’ll let you understand as quickly as I’ve some extra data about that 🙂
Q&A Episode 2 (November 21st, 2017)
Some of you might need to be forgotten concerning the second half of the Q&A interview with Darian from Supercell that was initially scheduled for September however then delayed for “internal reasons”. Immediately, the 2nd half of the interview is lastly launched and there are some fascinating issues in it that I wrapped up for you under the video (in case you possibly can’t/don’t wish to watch the entire 40 minutes video).
1:05 – What ought to Clans be working in the direction of after they attain Clan Stage 10?
There is not going to be extra clan bonus perks for increased ranges to not abandon new clans. Nonetheless, Supercell desires to incentivize pushing the clan stage even additional and so they work on one thing that can make us pushing the clan stage additional (extra on that later).
Three:58 – What was the aim of the Builder Base? Why not add PVP straight to the Foremost Village?
The rationale for this (and I did point out this already after I first noticed the Builder Base again in Could) is, that Supercell needed to implement many participant options (Gem Mine, Clock Tower, night time mode and so forth.) without radically altering the sport from the bottom up. General a clever selection after we have a look at what number of gamers simply dislike the Builder Base…
There are additionally proper now no plans so as to add any extra gear ups to the Foremost Village (besides the Multi Mortar that’s already applied however not unlocked but).
9:41 – What’s the Clash Workforce’s imaginative and prescient for the end-game of Clash of Clans?
Supercell doesn’t have a transparent imaginative and prescient of the end-game, that’s what I bought from Darian’s solutions. They need each participant to proceed farming, trophy pushing, Clan Wars and Builder Base relying on what every single participant prefers – however that is what the entire recreation consists of from the start. Including new stuff we spend sources on like new ranges is only a factor to maintain the TH11 gamers busy properly now whereas balancing the opposite facets of the sport.
For me personally, it is a very unsatisfying reply as a result of Supercell thinks they are going to make all of us with excessive stage to maxed TH11 bases joyful by simply fixing clouds and matchmaking and throwing in a pair of new ranges right here and there – I hope this isn’t the true intention of Supercell as a result of this gained’t be sufficient to maintain the long-term gamers joyful and within the recreation for an extended interval.
21:53 – Why can’t we use Heroes in conflict whereas upgrading?
There’s probably not a solution that is sensible, however, the fascinating half of Darian’s reply is that it’s in dialogue to make this potential to see a rise in Clan Wars because of the truth that we don’t need to determine to improve Heroes or go to conflict. I hope we’d see at the very least a lower or improve time for Heroes at the very least to make it higher, however, to be trustworthy, my hopes should not actually robust since this has been an ongoing want for greater than Three years now.
25:09 – Why doesn’t the Clash group share what we’re engaged on prematurely and get suggestions from the Group?
Mainly, the explanation (from the view of Supercell) is, that there isn’t any sentence in the neighborhood suggestions. Nicely, I do play Clash of Clans for a few years and after Supercell promised at the very least Three instances to speak higher with us that tuned out to not change something I don’t anticipate any change right here sooner or later. I bear in mind when Pleasant Challenges have been launched and the group replied that this can enable sandboxing assaults for Clan Struggle, Supercell did make some last-minute adjustments to forestall that – with asking or telling their plans extra prematurely they may have prevented many of conditions like that as a result of hundreds of thousands of eyes see greater than a handful of eyes.
31:30 – Why can we not have a couple of identifying change?
Status follows your identify so that is a facet to maintain your identity clear as a result of you possibly can’t change it that always.
35:59 – What’s the Clash of Clans group engaged on subsequent?
The following massive factor they’re engaged on is one thing that Supercell will roll out in a number of levels that can add extra functionalities to the clans and in addition extra incentives for the clans (clan ranges) and the primary half of it is going to be rolled out within the December Update (annotation: within the video Darian says “hopefully in the next months during the winter update” however the recorded materials was a pair weeks outdated). Darian additionally confirms that the subsequent replace will be primarily dealing with Dwelling Village content material however not in the best way of new troops, ranges and so forth. it is going to be “adding a new dynamic to the game”. He says it’s one thing that “so many players wanted for such a long time” and in addition, the trace is that the phrase begins with the letter “Q” – might it’s quests?!
5v5 Clan Wars (November 13th, 2017)
Within the subsequent upkeep, we’re excited to introduce a brand new Clan Struggle measurement: 5v5 Clan Wars. Wish to strive an elite strike power of City Corridor 11’s? Or maybe take a look at your mettle with 5 City Corridor 10’s or every other fascinating lineup? The 5v5 Clan Struggle measurement enables you to focus your assault power in pocket-sized wars.
Not solely does this new Clan Struggle measurement offer you extra choices within the wars you wage, it provides Clans better flexibility for smaller Clans or bigger Clans who prefer to alternate Struggle sizes every conflict! Take into account that, as typical, you’ll solely be capable to run one Struggle at a time.
Moreover, the subsequent upkeep will deliver additional matchmaking enhancements to Clan Wars (together with a barely increased assault weight for the Grand Warden).
Update Data Quickly?! (November third, 2017)
Is there any higher method to begin this journey in the direction of the subsequent replace than the primary hints from people who know what’s coming telling that there can be some first data coming quickly?
Within the official boards, this simply occurred and I feel it’s an important beginning to get you all onboard so we’re on the identical web page.
Nicely, City Corridor 12 is one thing many individuals are taking a look at (i get like 20 emails day-after-day from folks asking if TH12 is coming…), however, certainly it bought dominated out already to be one thing that’s coming this 12 months or wherever quickly.
The December 2017 Update is what the current (frankly spoken underwhelming) October Update was laying the muse for with the Clan Badges. Right here’s the unique textual content that Darian wrote in the course of the Sneak Peeks in October:
Darian (Oct, eighth):
On this second Sneak Peek, we wish to offer you a glimpse of some Clan enhancements we can be released within the subsequent replace. This replacement is just the start of laying down the groundwork for brand spanking new content material we can be introducing sooner or later. However one factor at a time…
Whereas it’s arduous to see wherein path this all strikes, Supercell already dominated out that there can be extra Clan Perks in the best way we’ve them now as a result of this may give new clans a drawback that’s too giant.When wanting on the totally different types, we will clearly see that they adapt to the symbols of the totally different Trophy Leagues and I’m fairly positive that there is not going to be a particular new recreation mode however that Supercell will develop one thing that can inspire us to compete as a clan.
Many different video games have one thing like a clan amassing one thing collectively throughout a season and get rewarded relying on the League and the outcomes and that’s, in my view, the logical step that Supercell may be going with these adjustments. If they are going to do one thing like that, it’s most likely amassing trophies, stars or loot inside a sure interval of time to unlock rewards.
So, hopefully, we are going to get some first data quickly – please remark what you assume will come within the December 2017 Update for Clash of Clans!
