After upgrading the Town Hall to level 14, the Builder will also take part in defending your village. He will repair damage which is done to your base’s structures.

Upon destroying the Builder Hut, the Builder will stop repairing buildings.

New achievements

Supercell has added new achievements aimed at high-level players to accomplish.

  • Not So Easy This Time – Destroy weaponized Town Halls in multiplayer battles.
  • Siege Sharer – Donate Siege Machines (Note: Since Siege Machine donations are now counted towards this Achievement, they are no longer counted towards the Friend in Need Achievement).
  • Superb Work – Boost Super Troops.
  • Bust This! – Destroy weaponized Builder Huts in multiplayer battles.

Gameplay

  • Boosts on Heroes or Buildings are no longer cancelled when an upgrade is started and will continue to run in the background.
  • Practice mode levels are now only available at the same Town Hall as the level, not one earlier.
  • Ongoing Lab upgrade timer continues normally when Lab is upgraded and can be finished with Gems or a Book. New unit/spell upgrades still cannot be started before the Lab upgrade is completed.
  • Move some of the obstacles from the new Village starting layout closer to the edges so there’s larger continuous empty space for the Village.
  • The rewards for the first 19 Goblin Map levels after the tutorial have been increased for a better new player experience:
    • Values for level 20 and beyond remain unchanged.

Miscellaneous

UI changes

IOS changes

  • Supercell now uses Apple’s Metal graphics API on supported devices. This offers more efficient performance and should reduce power usage while playing the game.
  • To use Facebook’s social features, it’s now necessary to grant permission for cross app-tracking.

Bug fixes

Supercell has fixed a number of bugs in the game ranging from gameplay-related ones to issues affecting the UI, VFX, and layout editor. Players can find the full list of bug fixes in the patch notes.
