Yesterday was the first time Finnish developer Supercell hosted “ClashCon”, a gathering hosted in Helsinki based on all things “Clash of Clans”. Beginning at lunchtime, the event lasted until 21:00 GMT+3 and saw several clans face off in a war tournament, with “GLORY CHINA 1” taking first place.
Ilkka Paananen, CEO of Supercell, took to the stage before all the events began and gave a short speech before inviting Jonas Collaros, co-founder of the game, up. Jonas had a nice surprise up his sleeve as he connected his developer iPad to the big screen, followed by shouts of joy as Town Hall 11 appeared (or shouts of terror at how ugly it was). A demonstration of the new “Falcon” defense followed, before telling the crowd that this was just a small part of the incoming update.
Typically, big updates are released once per year and we are yet to witness that. A Halloween update was released on Thursday which brought the usual small changes, mostly graphics changes to incorporate the Halloween essence. It is rumored that this update will bring new buildings, new troops and several new features.
We are yet to find out when the new content will be pushed. Supercell did, however, hint that more sneak peeks will be released in the weeks following up to the update, so we can assume it will land between Halloween and Christmas (which also brings a theme update).
