CoC History


• It’s Tom here (@HouseofClashers) with another article about Clash of Clans. This time I’ll take a look at the Clash of Clans history.

• Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes when I’m talking with friends and clan mates some questions like these pop up: remember when the Heroes were introduced? Remember when there was no Dark Elixir on the game? Remember when the highest league was Champion? When was that? How many years ago? Well, I never know the exact answer, so I decide to create a timeline with the major updates from the game!
