Game Balance


In this update, we're also introducing a round of balance changes to a few units.

• Ice Golem:

When the Ice Golem takes fatal damage and is destroyed, it releases a potent Freeze Spell that can be devastating to attacks or defenses, depending on the role it's fulfilling. Because of this unique ability, we're introducing a re-balance to the Ice Golem that will change how its Freeze Spell functions based on whether it's being used defensively or offensively.

• Freeze Spell changes for "defensive" Ice Golem:

Level 1: 4s reduced to 2.5s
Level 2: 4.75s reduced to 2.75s
Level 3: 5.5s reduced to 3s
Level 4: 6.25s reduced 3.25s
Level 5: 3.5s (new level)

Freeze Spell changes for "offensive" Ice Golem:
Freeze radius increased by 36% for all levels.

• What does it all mean?

If you're using Ice Golems in your Clan Castle for defensive purposes, the Freeze Spell duration is shortened to the amounts listed above. If you are using Ice Golems for attacking/offensive purposes the original Freeze Spell duration is used and the radius has been increased by 36%.

• Tornado Trap

The vortex duration of the Tornado Trap at each level has been reduced.
Level 1: 6s reduced to 5s
Level 2: 8s reduced to 6s
Level 3: 10s reduced to 7s

• What does it all mean?

If your attacking units get caught in the Tornado Trap, the amount of time they're stuck in the swirling vortex of doom will be reduced based on the new durations listed above. Therefore, your Troops will spend less time twirling around and more time spreading destruction against your foes!

• Wall Breakers and Bomb Trap

Everyone's favorite donated ballistic bag of bones is getting a slight HP increase from levels 5-8. Furthermore, the damage for the Bomb Trap will be increased at levels 7 and 8.
Wall Breaker HP:
Level 5: 42 -> 53
Level 6: 54 -> 72
Level 7: 62 -> 82
Level 8: 70 -> 92

• Bomb Damage:
Level 7: 63 -> 72
Level 8: 72 -> 92

• Builder Base:

We've got a couple Builder Base balance changes that'll be going into this update as well.

• Giant Cannon:
The Giant Cannon will no longer hit the Battle Machine multiple times and cause massive amounts of damage. It will now do the listed amount of damage to the Battle Machine.

• What does it all mean?
Your Battle Machine will remain in action even longer in the face of the Giant Cannon and will no longer succumb to taking huge amounts of punishment.

• Battle Machine:
The Battle Machine's regeneration time has been reduced to match the training time of your Training Camps.

• What does it all mean?
Your Battle Machine will be ready even faster than ever, allowing you to attack sooner!


QoL Improvement


A Dark & Stormy Night:
As a final touch on today's announcement, we're adding a new option to darken the clouds screen. This new "dark clouds" mode will reduce the brightness of the clouds, making them a bit easier on the eyes; especially if you're playing in a dark room or if you're feeling especially photosensitive to bright, white lights.
