A few days ago, the new Town Hall 12 update of Clash of Clans was revealed. Now, thanks to a post on Supercell’s forum, we are able to review all the balance changes that are included in the update.
Similar to all defenses in Clash of Clans, Town Hall 12 has five different levels that change as you start gaining experience in the game. The balance adjustments that will be implemented can be divided into three main categories: fixing exploits, buffing troops that were underused, increasing rewards and loot. Also, the most important gameplay change is hidden into the patch notes. It looks like upgrading the levels of the game now requires players to place the buildings. This will make it very hard for the manipulation of war weight needed for engineering bases to be accomplished.
As we know by now, Supercell doesn’t like to spoil anything for their fans, most probably because they have various things to work on in the same time and they want to make sure they reveal only final ideas regarding update changes. However, one thing has been already confirmed. It seems that we will get more than one update this year, maybe as much as three or four of them.
The first big update was expected to launch in the first half of the year, so we should have some official news soon.
What has been unsatisfactory for most players up until this point, is the situation with Clan Wars, as engineered bases can handle much higher adversaries than their war weight. So we do hope to see some significant changes made by Supercell when it comes to the matchmaking queues for engineered and non-engineered bases.
You can download Clash of Clans on iOS and Android. We do not have an official release date for the Town Hall 12 update yet, but hopefully, it will be announced not far from now.
