The End of Clouds: New Legend League Announced for the Next Clash of Clans Update
Hello Clashers, the update Legendary players have been waiting for years (yes, years) is finally here. The clouds are OVER!
But first, a little overview of what is the cloud problem.
THE CLOUD ISSUE
If you are on higher leagues you probably know this, but here is a short explanation: as you raise your Trophies, less villages are available to be attacked. On higher leagues the situation starts to get really bad and and the game can't find an attack anymore.
Yes, it comes to a point where there is no one without a shield on your Trophy range and you get stuck in the clouds. Yeap, for a long, long time. It can take hours to make a single attack and sometimes the game even gives up the search. Currently the clouds starts around 4.700 Trophies and get really, really bad at 4.900. Over 5.300 it may take hours to make a single attack.
This is probably the biggest real issue on the game as it affects the end game. If you upgrade everything and finally tries to show your skills on multiplayer, you just can't.
Today climbing trophies after 5.000 is more about patience/time than skill. And yes, this will change.
New Legend League
On today's Sneak Peek Supercell presented a brand new Legend League to finally fix this issue! Now when you reach 5.000 Trophies the matchmaking will be completely different.
Once you reach 5.000 Trophies a new Legend League screen will show up where you can "opt-in" on the new system. Once you decide to participate, you will be able to make 8 attacks and defend 8 times every day without having to wait at all for the matchmaking. Depending on your performance on these attacks and defenses, you will gain or lose trophies everyday.
There is no waiting to make these attacks (maybe a few seconds, just as regular attacks). Just press "find a match" and you will instantly attack another village. You can do this at any time of the day, with the limitation of 8 attacks/day.
Instead of finding a match as you go, the game already finds 8 villages to attack at the beginning of the day. This means they are already waiting to be attacked when you push the "Find a match" button.
The amount of trophies on each battle will be fixed, they will all be worth 40 Trophies for a 3 stars attack.
This feature is limited to 8 attacks/day, and if you don't use it, the attacks will be wasted anyway, it's not cumulative. Once you finish all 8 attacks you will no longer be able to attack on this system until the next League Day begins.
The Legend League will remain lasting an entire month and at the end all villages will be reset to 5.000 cups.
To access you must obtain 5.000 Trophies. If you drop below 4.900, you will be demoted to the Titan 1 league.
On this new menu you will have an option to choose your layout (you can pick a different from the one you actually use on your village). You can also choose the Clan Castle Troops.
Once you setup the defense configuration, there is nothing else you have to do over there. The Clan Castle troops will not be lost and there is no need to go back there to add more troops are they are killed on defenses.
With the new Legend League we have, obviously, a new Shield system exclusive to the Legend League.
If you want to give 8 attacks without waiting, your village will also be attacked 8 times. It's a fair trade. To do this, now you might be attacked even when you are online and there are no more time shields. This is a major overhaul on the Legend League.
This system rewards skills and well planned layouts. After giving all 8 attacks and defending 8 times, you might end up the day with more Trophies than you started if you are good enough. 100% skills.
If you want to take a break from the game, you can still buy a shield at the shop and you be out ot the matchmaking for a few days.
On each attack you can get up to 40 Trophies, but it no longer works as the old regular system: today each star gives you 33% of the available trophies for that attack.
Here is how the trophies will now be calculated:
- For 0 stars you'll get 0 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 10% DP above 0%
- For 1 stars you'll get 5 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 9% DP above 1%
- For 2 stars you'll get 16 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 3% DP above 50%
- For 3 stars you'll get 40 trophies
This new rewards better high percentage attacks. Getting 2 stars is no longer enough for a good attack, you really need to focus on high percentage attacks or you might end up the day losing trophies.
Another difference: you can't lose Trophies on attack. You will lose Trophies when your defense will be attacked.
The new Legend League loot works similar to the Clan Wars. There will be loot available on the villages, but they will not actually be stolen from the enemies.
The amount of loot is based on how strong it is, similar to Clan Wars. A maxed Town Hall 12 will reward:
- 450k gold
- 550k elixir
- 6.5k dark elixir
However, other attack "benefits" will work just as regular attacks. The stars will count towards the Clan Games and Season Challenges.
This was the last Sneak Peek for the June update, so it should be released in a few days. My guess is next Monday or Tuesday.
