Time & Cost Balancing
You might remember that we announced earlier some of the upcoming "Quality of Life" changes that will make it to the next content update in Clash of Clans.
Today we are here to tell you about some big reductions happening in troop training, spell brewing, and laboratory and building upgrade times!
Should you want to read about these changes in detail, we invite you to take a look at this thread in our official Forums.
In a nutshell:
Troop Training & Spell Brewing Costs Reduced
In the next update, we are making it cheaper to train quite a few troops (reduced training and brewing costs apply to all levels of the troop/spell unless otherwise specified):
Balloon (costs reduced at levels 1-3)
Healer (costs reduced at level 5)
Bowler (costs reduced for level 3 and 4)
Laboratory Upgrade Times
But not only will it be cheaper to train some troops and spells - some of them will also get faster upgrades from one level to the next! Laboratory upgrade times have been reduced for the following units and spells (levels vary, please check the Forum post for full details):
Witch (level 2 and 3 upgrade costs have also been reduced)
Building Upgrade Times & Costs
Now onto the buildings and defenses! We have decreased the upgrade times and/or upgrading costs for certain levels of:
Dark Elixir Pump
Dark Elixir Storage
Eagle Artillery (only time, no changes in costs)
Siege Workshop (only time, no changes in costs)
As a reminder, these changes will go live in our April release. Until then, stay tuned for further news about what's to come!

Builder Base Balancing Update
In today's post we're going to discuss some of the upcoming balance changes we'll be making to the Builder Base!
DPS reduced by 15%
3rd Cannon Cart unlocked at level 10
The Cannon Cart is one of the most popular and used units in the Builder Base in higher trophy ranges of Builder Hall level 8 players; however, it is not as popular or successful in lower trophy ranges and other BH levels. Coupled with its level 16 upgrade which adds a 3rd unit in each Army Camp, our statistics showed that the Cannon Cart at level 16 was a bit too powerful while levels 1-15 were under-utilized or under-powered. We felt that reducing the DPS while making the 3rd unit available early on will help offset this difference and make the Cannon Cart much more utilitarian across all levels.
HP increased by 7.5%
Statistically the Baby Dragon has very low usage across all trophy ranges. This is generally an indication a troop's utility is either too weak or doesn't provide a stable meta with other units. We have increased its HP in order to make the Baby Dragon more viable against air defenses and give it some additional survivability so it can be more effectively combo'd with other units.
HP reduced by 5%
When looking at the overall health of the game's meta, one of the things you want to look for is the frequency of how often a unit is selected. If players tend to favor one unit over another, resulting in less variety in the meta, we have to look at what we can do to increase variety. The Super P.E.K.K.A. is a unit, like the Cannon Cart, that is very highly used in higher trophy ranges. The goal of this HP reduction is to possibly reduce how often she's selected, thus creating the opportunity for a greater variety of options. Keeping a variety of options viable is one of the keys to a healthy metagame.
Upgrade times of Builder Base troops reduced
Once players find a strategy that suits them, it's natural for players to want to strengthen those troops to maximize that strategy's effectiveness. However, often times this means other unused troops will be left under-upgraded or under-utilized. What we've done is reduce the upgrade times for multiple troops in order to make using them a bit more tempting and, as mentioned earlier, keep the metagame as viable as possible with allowing greater options to be chosen.
Gem Mine can be upgraded to level 3 at Builder Hall level 3
While not a direct change in game strategy, this is in-line with upgrade levels of other buildings in the Builder Base. Furthermore, this should allow a slight increase in the amount of Gems available at BH3.
Join us tomorrow for one last sneaky peek into December's update!
As we're putting the final touches on our upcoming December 2018 update, first we wanted to touch on something that's being changed in the game.
We are making a change to how storing Magic Items won from troop events work. After this update, you will no longer be able to stack Magic Items beyond their intended capacity when you complete an in-game event.
If you have reached the maximum capacity of a specific Magic Item, you will receive a message stating you do not have enough room for this Magic Item until you clear enough space to obtain it (you can use or sell Magic Items to make room for new ones).
However, you will have until the in-game event finishes to clear enough space in your Magic Items inventory! During that time, there will be a button on the in-game event status tracker that will allow you to claim the Magic Item once you have cleared enough space in your inventory.
To sum it up:
- if you have free storage space for a specific Magic Item, then it will automatically be added to your Magic Item Storage once you complete a troop event;
- if you do not have enough free space to store a particular Magic Item, first you'll have to free up some space, and then tap the "Claim" button from the event tracker. Those Magic Items will then be transferred to your Magic Item inventory, as well as the XP won from completing that challenge.

Clan War Leagues Are Coming!
During our 6th Clashiversary livestream, we dropped a hint for something we’ve been working on just over the horizon...
We’re now ready to reveal the next Clash of Clans update! This October, Clans will be able to be a part of an exciting new feature: Clan War Leagues!
Skill-based matchmaking? Check! Competitive ladder? Check! Amazing rewards? Double CHECK!
We're introducing a host of tantalizing new content with the Clan War Leagues update. The premise of the War Leagues is simple! Your Clan will be grouped with seven other Clans into a League. During the course of the League week, you will wage a 15 vs 15 War against each of those Clans. At the end of the week, the Clans with the highest number of Stars will be promoted to the next highest League tier, while the bottom performing Clans will drop down to a lower tier.
How do we enter a War League? It’s easy! The opt-in period will happen once per month, and the War League will take place for eight days. Even though League Wars will be 15 vs 15, but there are opportunities to let others wage War during the League week as you can always rotate players in.
Oh and did we mention that each Clanmate gets only ONE attack in each Battle day, instead of the two attacks in regular Clan Wars?
There will be 18 League Tiers in total, with plenty of room to strive to be the best. The higher you climb, the more tantalizing the rewards are!
We’ve got more details coming in the days ahead, so in the meantime let us know your thoughts on our Forums!
