Clash of Clans | June 2019 Update Recap: Release Date, Hero Levels, New Legend League, O.T.T.O, Hog Glider and more |

Hello Clashers, the Sneak Peeks for the June 2019 Clash of Clans update are over and the update should be released in a few days.

This update is one of the biggest in a long time. It's huge! We have O.T.T.O, Hog Glider, Lava Launcher, Builder Hall 9, Legend League rework with the end of the Clouds, Hero levels, Practice Mode, Research Potion and much, much more. So here is our recap so you don't miss any detail of the upcoming update:

Release Date

I will start with the most common question, the release date. The big Sneak Peeks are officially over but we don't have an exact release date. It might come as soon as tomorrow, but it might take a few days. It will be released when the development is ready. All we know for sure it that this is the June update, so well, it will be released this month.

New Legend League

Clash of Clans New Legend League Finding Bases

This is the biggest change to high level players. This is huge, I really mean it, this will change the game in a big way.

The new Legend League introduces a brand new matchmaking system that should end the Cloud issue - when a player wants to attack on higher leagues but the game can't find enemy villages. This is very frustrating because you want to play the game but can't because the matchmaking is broken.

Clash of Clans New Legend League Find a Match

Once you reach 5.000 Trophies you can opt-in on this new matchmaking system. You will be able to make 8 attacks every day without having to wait at all for the matchmaking.

On the other hand, your village will also be attacked 8 times. It's a fair trade. Depending on your performance on these attacks and defenses you will gain or lose trophies everyday.

On each attack you can gain up to 40 Trophies, but on each defense you can also lose up to 40 Trophies.

Clash of Clans New Legend League Over

Today Trophy Push is about patience because you have to wait hours for an attack above 5.500 Trophies. With this new system it will be 100% skill, it's a pro and fair space where everyone can show their true skills.

All players will have a chance to be on the top rank, as long as they are good enough. This is a true game changer.

For more information about the new Legend League, including the how the loot, shield and Trophies will work, check our exclusive Legend League tutorial.

New Builder Base Troop: Hog Glider

Clash of Clans Hog Glider

Two years ago when a few troops decided to go across the ocean to discover the Builder Base the Hog Rider never showed up on the other side. This is now fixed with the Hog Glider!

The Hog Glider is single target flying unit that targets defenses. Once he hits a defense, he stuns it for a few seconds.

Clash of Clans Hog Glider in action

Once he is destroyed he will automatically drop from the glider and act as a normal Hog Rider.

For more details and complete stats about this new troop, check the Hog Glider page.

Builder Base Level 18 Troops

All Builder Base troops can now be upgraded to level 18 on the new level 9 Star Laboratory. Here are the stats.

New Builder Base Defense: Lava Launcher

Clash of Clans New Lava Launcher

The Lava Launcher is a very long range defense that hurls slabs of molten rock and sets that ground on fire!

Clash of Clans New Lava Launcher in action

Once the troops run over the area affected by the molten rock they will take damage for a certain length of time.

Clash of Clans Lava Launcher Range

As you can see, the Lava Launcher range is massive! And what about the dead zone on the center? Huge! Basically you can only reach enemy troops outside the walls of your village, so always place it near the center.

For more information and stats about this defense, check the new Lava Launcher page.

New Builder: O.T.T.O

Clash of Clans O.T.T.O

O.T.T.O is the Master Builder latest invention, a new builder available on the Builder Base.

To unlock O.T.T.O you must build O.T.T.O's Hut (Builder Hall 9 required) and upgrade by completing tasks.

Once the Hut is level 5 you will unlock O.T.T.O. He is a robot that can work as a Builder. Yes, you will have a second Builder at the Builder Base!

Now there there are three options to attack on your main village: Single Player (Goblin Maps), Multiplayer and the Practice Mode.

On the new Practice Mode you can train new attacks, test troops and Heroes. However, all troops and formations are already pre-made so you don't have to spend resources on them.

Clash of Clans Practice Mode in Action

As you unlock new Town Hall levels and Troops, new army formations will be added automatically to the Practice Mode. For more information, check the Practice Mode explained news.


Clash of Clans Share Village

Now you can share your layouts with clanmates and the community. You can copy a link to the layout and share where you want, even outside the game.

Clash of Clans | League Shop Magic Hammer Cooldown

We know the Magic Hammers are the most powerful items on the game, they are capable of start (without resources) and finish an upgrade.

The only way to obtain them is through the League Shop. This will not change, however, the game will add a 7 day cooldown to the Magic Item you just purchased, meaning you can purchase the same Magic Time only 1 time every week. After the purchase, you will have to wait for 7 days to buy it again.
