Spring Update Full Release Notes

The Spring 2020 Update for Clash of Clans is here! With this update we are introducing a ton of new features, new levels, and Quality of Life improvements to make Clash of Clans better than ever. Below you will find the patch notes for this super cool update!

Introducing: The Super Troops

There is a new structure in the Village that sits next to the Trader. When you click on this barrel-shaped building you can see which Super Troops are available. Super Troops is an all-new feature that allows you to temporarily power-up existing Troops into Super versions of themselves. Each Super Troop will have a special ability that sets them apart from their normal version, adding a whole new dimension to your Home Village.

  • Your village must be at least Town Hall 11.

  • Troops must meet the level requirement in order to be powered up into their Super version.

  • Once your Troop has been Super’d, that Super Troop is available for one week.

  • While active, your Super Troop replaces the normal version in the Barracks. You can only train the Super version if that power-up is currently active.

  • You can donate Super Troops as reinforcements to Clanmates.

  • Once the Super buff has expired, the unused Super Troops will remain in your Barracks until they are used or donated.

  • After the 7 days have passed, you will not be able to use the same Super Troop again for another 7 days. However, you may still turn your other available Troops into their Super versions.

  • Only one Super buff is available at a time.

  • Every Super Troop has an available trial mode that allows you to perform a special practice attack using that specific Super Troop so you can test drive it before you commit to the Super buff.

With the release of the Spring Update, 4 different Super Troops will be available; however, we will be adding more in future updates!

  • Do not show CC spells in CC troop area in attack confirm screen if someone donates spells while the screen is open

  • Show boosts properly when opening attack confirm screen via War or Friendly Challenge scout view

  • Gray out

    Join Clan

    button if the player has insufficient Town Hall level to join the Clan

  • Don't show Hidden Teslas in Builder Base village preview of player profile.

  • Show gear ups, building attack modes and Sweeper aim angles properly in village preview.

  • Show correct frame of Eagle Artillery and Air Sweeper instead of showing the last frame which would show that the Eagle is out of ammo.

  • Show hidden objects such as Tesla's and Traps properly in player profile when viewed by the member from the same clan. Previously they were always removed from player profile view.

  • Fix visual rounding error for Gold and Elixir when using a rune for some specific amounts of resources (for example 17999999)

  • Fix a bug where if a player finished their last Clan Games task and went offline until after the Games ended then they could miss out on being eligible to claim the extra reward for maxing their score quota.

  • Fix Hero healing timer in training overview screen. The timer wasn't calculated properly when boost was active and boost timer was shorter than Hero heal timer. (+ Same fix for troop & spell timers)

  • Remove artificial limitation of 20 for minimum clan level in Clan Search

  • Do not spawn Tall Grass from stashed Ancient Barbarian Statue.

Stay safe, and Clash On!
