October '18 Update Patch Notes

October Update 2018: Introducing Clan War Leagues!

Everything has been building up to Clan War Leagues. Faster upgrades, new Town Hall level, new Troops. Now it’s time for WAR!

The Clan War Leagues are a brand new competitive Clan War system where one week each month Clans will battle to prove they are the best in the world and climb 18 Leagues and reap amazing new exclusive rewards.

  • Season-based League structure where Clans fight 7 other Clans in their League to advance to the next highest League.

  • Skill and performance are what determine your success, not war weight.

  • 18 individual Leagues based on you Clan’s performance: we’ve broken down the Clan War Leagues into 18 distinct tiers. Each season, depending on your Clan’s performance, your Clan will move up, down, or remain within the same League.  

  • 15v15 Wars but you can include up to 50 Clan members and rotate players during each day of the week. Each player can only do one attack per War - make every attack count!

New currency: League Medals!

  • Earn League Medals and Resources by competing in Clan War Leagues!
  • Use League Medals in the new League Shop to purchase exclusive decorations and the new Hammer Magic Items.
  • Depending on your Clan’s performance in a League, Clan Leaders can grant additional bonus League Medals to Clan members at the end of the League.
