Update: March 2016 – New Troop + Troop & Building Upgrades

March 2016 Clash Update

It has only been 3-4 months since the last major update on December, which brought us Town Hall 11. There were numerous small UI changes that affected the looks of the Air Defenses, Army Camps, and regular functions like war icons and war events. 

It only took Supercell about 3 months to come up with these new balancing tweaks that should adjust gameplay with the new addition of Town Hall 11. Here are some of the quick highlights of some major upgrades for buildings and troops.

Troops Upgraded

  • Hogs – Max Level 6 (Previously 5) – Reaches Max @ Town Hall 10
  • Valkyries – Max Level 5 (Previously 4) – Reaches Max @ TH10
  • Goblins – Max Level 7 (Previously 6) – Reaches Max @ TH10

New Troop

  • Bowler – Max Level 3 – Available at TH10, Maxes at TH11

Building Upgraded

  • Mortar – Max Level 9 – Reaches Max @ TH11
  • Inferno Tower – Max Level 10 – Reaches Max @ TH11
