Balancing

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.

Quality of Life

A number of Quality of Life changes have been made in this update:

  • Gain XP for donating defending war Clan Castle troops. XP is awarded at the start of Battle Day, so farming XP by repeatedly donating and removing troops isn’t possible.
  • Hero skin randomiser added. When enabled, you can pick which of your hero skins to include in the cycle and when your village is loaded, a new hero skin will be active.
  • “Support a Creator” button added to the main shop screen to enable entering a creator code there.

Fixes

Some fixes have been made in this update:

  • 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).

API Updates

Some additions to the API have been made in this update.

Player War Opt In/Out Status

It is now possible to retrieve a player’s war opt in/out status from the /players/{playerTag} endpoint. This will allow tools using the Clash of Clans API to be able to see if a player is opted in or out for war. The name of this property in the API response is warPreference. If a player isn’t in a plan, this property won’t be present.

Number of war attacks per player

The maximum number of attacks per war player is now returned in the /clans/{clanTag}/currentwar and /clans/{clanTag}/warlog endpoints. This is useful for retrieving information from friendly wars, commonly used in tournaments where a single attack format is used rather than the usual 2 attacks. The name of this property is attacksPerMember and will be present for wars that occurred from when this feature was implemented.
