Giants Surprise Event! August 2017 Update Ticker

Author:cheap clash of clans gems Release time:2017-8-12 13:31:28 hits:312

The next update is on the horizon and it’s time to gather all important info in one place.

It’s difficult to see what’s coming considering Supercell doesn’t have a fixed schedule for their updates or a fixed roadmap for new features. They seem to work more or less with “it’s done when it’s done” (at least they stick with what they say it will be).

I will always check any leak I find and if I see one that makes sense from a trustful source, I will immediately show it here – but also expect me to show fake leaks and tell you why they are fakes.



No official release date yet, expected in August 2017

Please note, the order is from the bottom (old) to top (most recent). If you’re visiting this page for the first time and want to get the whole story, you’ll need to start from the bottom.


Giants Building A Suprise Event (August 11th, 2017)

The second of four Clashiversary Events just kicked off and as we already have seen in prior leaks, it will be the one where a Giant will be in every Builder Hut and defend when the Builder Hut gets destroyed.

A lot of questions are around this event, so please let me give you some answers:

  • Will the Giants also defend in Clan War during the event? Yes they will
  • What level do the defending Giants have? Level 1

This can have some impact on your attacks, not because a Giant Level 1 is dealing a crazy amount of damage but the retargeting can get a problem.

Therefore I’m not a very huge fan of this event and I would have liked to see this not occuring in Clan War because many would simply not think about this when attacking and it’s just annoying when you miss out a Star just because a Giant retargeted troops.

More Info About The Future of Clash of Clans (August 8th, 2017)

Darian, the new Community Manager at Supercell joined Clash With Ash for a very interesting interview you shouldn’t miss.

The whole interview is more than 40 minutes long, so in case you don’t want to listen through everything, I have also wrapped up all the important bullet points for you. They talked about the new Matchmaking Algorithm that we will shortly see, the future of the game and also about the modders as well.

Here are the interesting thing I took out from this interview:

  • The new Matchmaking Algorithm will take offensive weight into account more equally than the older one that was focused very much on defensive weight (Minute 9:11) to make sure, more equal clans are matched together
  • This new algorithm is a tweak and improvement of the current one and no complete new designed one, so it will not take individual weights in the clan into account and just match up clans a whole thing (let’s say you have 5 engineered bases in your clan, the algorithm won’t try to find another clan with 5 engineered bases, etc.) (Minute 14:30)
  • After a certain time, the algorithm will become more flexible to match you up, so the longer the search takes the higher the possibility that you can get mismatched in Clan War (like it is today)
  • Darian confirms that switching languages in Global Chat is just a placebo (Minute 13:48) as a side-note, but that’s what I’m telling for years now 🙂
  • Supercell will focus on the Main Base in the near future and the new Builder Hall Level 7-8 will probably be the only new thing for the Builder Base in the next few updates (I guess in 2017) but they will also work on new features for the Builder Base in the future
  • They plan to work on fixing the cloud issue for higher Leagues, but are not on it right now (Minute 21:55)
  • Darian also talks a lot about modders and why Supercell addresses it in ban waves like they do (Minute 25:50) and also explains why they investigate every report but don’t give a individual feedback to not give modders the opportunity to see what they are specifically looking for

Battle Ram Tips (August 4th, 2017)

The Battle Ram is available and it’s also offering a decent amount of Gems in the Battle Ram Event that you don’t want to miss with up to 250 Gems at Town Hall 11.

The thing is that you will need to win the battles and not just only use the Battle Ram which is more challenging than you might think – first things first, spamming all Battle Rams will not get you anywhere above 20% on Town Hall 9+ because it’s nothing else than just simply spamming Barbarians.

I tried it a couple of times and the Battle Ram bonus will often time be used when the Battle Ram hits some walls and then you have just a big group of Barbarians left.

I recommend you to use it in addition to your normal army and luckily you only need to use 5 of them.
