Clash of Clans Update: The latest


Clash of Clans update January Bats Supercell

Clash of Clans update: January Bat Spell balancing

Released: January 7, 2019

The January update is a small one, and it’s focused on a single thing. Despite the nerf in the previous Clash of Clans update, the Bat Spell still remained too powerful in comparison to other spell choices. The number of Bats spawned has been reduced (again) and their first attack delay is longer.

Clash of Clans update: December Balance update overview

Release date: December 12

It looks like the December Clash of Clans update might have needed a bit more tweaking before being released, as the development team has released a balance update just two days after the big one hit. Fans complained, and Supercell responded quickly.

This balance update is entirely focused on two new elements introduced in the December 2018 update. More specifically, it nerfs the new Dark Spell Bats and the new Siege machine the Stone Slammer. See below for the full list of changes introduced in this new Clash of Clans update.

Brace yourselves, because Winter is here, and with it comes a huge amount of new content in Clash of Clans’ new update. The December 2018 update introduces the Ice Golem and Bats, both of which will be familiar to fans of Clash Royale. Plus, there are loads of holiday goodies that will continue to come out over the next month.

Clash of Clans veterans can rejoice with the Stone Slammer, a new siege weapon that’s available at TH12. It drops boulders that deal massive AoE damage to defenses, and like other siege machines, it houses Clan Castle troops to boot!
