Release Date

The release date is confirmed, it's coming today, Monday (27/09)! Maintenance break is about to start!

Super Bowler

2021 Autumn Update Sneak Peek #2: Super Bowler, Quality of Life Improvements

The Super Bowler is a powered-up version of the regular Bowler.

Compared to the regular Bowler, he is around 6x stronger, does 2x more damage, has the same movement and attack speed, and uses 30 housing spaces instead of 6.

Special Ability: Tripple Strike

2021 Autumn Update Sneak Peek #2: Super Bowler, Quality of Life Improvements

"Boulders bounce to a third target and do extra splash damage."

The Super Bowler features a Special Ability called "Tripple Strike" which adds an extra bounce to the boulder. The regular Bowler boulder bounces only twice, while the Super Bowler will hit an extra building, even farther away.

Unlocking and Requirements

To power up your Bowler, transforming him on a Super Troop, you must have a regular Bowler level 4 or higher.

You must have a Town Hall 12 to unlock them.

For complete stats, visit the Super Bowler page.

Quality of Life Improvements

Gain XP for Donating Troops in Wars & War Leagues

You will now gain XP when you donate Troops during Wars and War Leagues, but not during Friendly Wars. The amount of XP earned is based on the donated Troops at the start of the Battle Day. Farming XP by removing donations and repeatedly requesting troops will not be possible. All XP from Troop donations are earned when Preparation Day ends. The amount of XP gained is the same as for other donations.

Hero Skin Randomizer

2021 Autumn Update Recap: Super Bowler, New Troop/Defense Levels, Balance Changes

When enabled, the Hero Skin Randomizer will randomly apply a different Hero Skin each time you load your Home Village, choosing from a list of skins you’ve selected to be on rotation.

The Hero Skin Randomizer can be activated from the Hero Skin UI, found on each pedestal of your available Heroes. Setting the Randomizer to “On”, you will need to select which of your unlocked skins you want in rotation. Any skins not selected will be excluded from the Randomizer’s cycle.

Therefore, if there are certain skins from your collection you wish not to be randomly applied when you load your Home Village, simply leave that skin deselected.

Once you’ve selected the Hero Skins you want in rotation, each time you load your Home Village the Hero Skin Randomizer will apply a different random skin from your selection to your available Heroes. Loading your Home Village occurs after events such as doing an attack or visiting another player’s Village.

It’s just like having your favorite music playlist on shuffle!

"Support A Creator" Improvements

If you want to support your favorite Clash of Clans Content Creator, we’ve made that feature even more accessible. In the Clash Shop, simply hit the Supercell Creator Club logo “C” to enter the Creator Code of the Content Creator you wish to support. Additionally, if you’re already supporting a Content Creator, the logo will have a green tick above it indicating your support is currently active.

API Changes

For those of a more technical disposition, we’ve added a couple changes to our public API:

Clan war opt-in/opt-out status is now present as the warPreference (in/out) property in the /players/{playerTag} response in the Clash of Clans API. The property is only present if a player is in a Clan.

The maximum number of attacks available per war participant is now present as the attacksPerMember property in the /clans/{clanTag}/currentwar and /clans/{clanTag}/warlog responses in the Clash of Clans API. As this is something new that we started tracking for Clans' war histories, friendly wars that took place before the introduction of this feature will lack this property.

Balance Changes

Inferno Dragon

The ramp-up speed of Inferno Dragon’s beam attack has been slowed down by 0.2 seconds. This means it takes slightly longer for its attack to reach max damage output.

Dragon Rider

Dragon Rider’s range has been reduced by 0.5 tiles. With this change, the range of Dragon Rider’s attacks has been shortened, which means it will need to move into closer range of its target in order to use its ranged attack

Mighty Yak

Splash damage has been removed from the Mighty Yak’s attacks.

More Walls

Finally, we are unlocking 50x more Wall segments for Town Hall 14 players to upgrade to level 15.

Bug Fixes

  • Builders will no longer become stuck in Walls when defending during Wars, Friendly Challenges, or Legend League attacks.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause a failure to save a Village in edit mode.This was caused by the Remove All tool to remove locked buildings. Locked buildings will no longer be removed when using the Remove All tool.
  • Wars with more than the desired number of participants should no longer be possible (e.g. 15 vs 16).

Halloween Scenery
