Hey Chief,

Welcome back to our next round of previews in the Town Hall 14 Sneak Peek Week.  In the previous sneak peek, we pulled back the curtain on the main focus of the Spring 2021 Update – Town Hall 14.  We’ve got even more exciting features we’re going to share with you over the next couple of days and today we’re revealing a monstrous list of game changes, quality of life improvements, and cost reductions for low to mid Town Hall players.  So hang on to your hat, or Builder hammer, and let’s go!

Starter Challenges

Starter Challenges are a new way for players between Town Hall 2-6 to speed up their progress through a variety of Starter Challenges similar to the Silver/Gold Pass.  These new free to play Starter Challenges are unlocked with each Town Hall level and completing each Challenge will provide more Challenges to complete.  

New Starter Pass reward track

There are some deliciously tempting rewards that can be earned on the Starter Pass. From Rune of Gold to a Book of Building, the Starter Pass reward track has up to 5000 points for players to complete.

Once a player upgrades to Town Hall 7, all unclaimed rewards are automatically collected.

Recruitment Tool

We’ve made a number of changes to help improve the user experience when players use the Find New Member feature.

  • It is now possible for players to receive invites without also being suggested in the Find New Members feature. The Invites preference in the player profile now offers 3 settings.
    • Receive Invites + Be Suggested
    • Receive Invites
    • No Invites
  • Players who chose to be suggested in the Find New Members feature must confirm that they are still looking for a Clan every week to continue being suggested.
  • Invites to join a clan now expire after 2 weeks. This will prevent cases where someone joins a clan unexpectedly from a very old invite.
  • There is now an info popup in Find New Members that gives some detail on how the feature works and explains what controls clans have over the recommendations.
  • Clans can now set a language in their settings.

Cost Reductions

In this update, we’re introducing a series of reductions for various upgrade times and upgrade costs with the goal of helping players upgrade their Villages even faster! For a full list of reductions please check the info below.

Reduced training times

  • Ice Golem: 360 seconds → 300 seconds
  • Witch: 360 seconds → 240 seconds
  • Super Witch: 1200 seconds → 800 seconds 

Wall cost reduction

  • Level 12 Wall: 3M Gold/Elixir → 2M Gold/Elixir
  • Level 13 Wall: 5M Gold/Elixir → 4M Gold/Elixir

Low- & Mid-Town Hall level cost reductions

We have implemented tons of cost changes from Town Hall level 2 through Town Hall level 11 to help players upgrade faster than ever, with the biggest discounts applied from Town Hall level 7 to 10! 

  • Upgrade timers for Town Hall 2 have been reduced by 60%
  • Early Troop upgrades in the Lab have been significantly reduced
  • Upgrade costs for the Barbarian King and Archer Queen for levels 1-50 have been significantly reduced
  • Town Hall level 13 costs are largely unchanged
  • For a breakdown of the cost changes please refer to the following table s. The percentages display a rough average of the discounts applied to each TH level.Please note the costs do not apply to Walls.

  • Level 1/2 Barbarians – Training Cost changed from 25/40 to 15/30
  • Training Cost of Level 1/2 Archers changed from 50/80 to 30/60
  • Training Cost of Level 1/2/3/4 Giants changed from 250/750/1250/1750 to 150/300/750/1500
  • Upgrade Cost of Barbs/Archers reduced at levels 1-2
  • Doubled Storage Capacity of lvl 1-4 Elixir Collectors / Gold Mines so they don’t cap out after 3 hours

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:

181500030000
192400024000
  • Values for level 20 and beyond remain unchanged

UI Changes

  • Achievements are now listed in a more sensible order rather than the order they were first added to the game. 
  • There is now a confirmation popup when pressing the Finish Training button in the Training Screen.
  • New icon for max poison DPS to distinguish it from normal DPS
  • Lab research screen is accessible during Lab upgrade
  • Keep the level badge flame burning in combat hud when all troops/spells are deployed
  • Use popover to show what the new buildings/traps are in TH/BH upgrade screen

3D Assets

The default Skin for the Barbarian King has been given a slight polish by adding more triangles which better captures the character and essence of his royal highness. Furthermore, the custom textures take full advantage of the new shaders. We plan to do this with all of the default skins of each Hero.  We will apply this new shader tech to future skins but we have no plans to revisit older ones at the moment.  

Season Challenge Changes

  • When claiming a resource reward if the player only has enough storage space for some of the reward they can now take whatever amount of the reward will fit and some gems. The amount of gems scales from a max 5 down to 1 based on what proportion of the resources were taken. E.g. if a player takes 20% of resources they will receive 4 gems (80% of 5). 
  • When a Season ends any unlocked but unclaimed rewards from the Season will be automatically claimed. Any rewards unable to fit into storage will be converted to gems according to the same rules as if this was done manually.
  • If a player is close to maxed and cannot complete the requirements of a challenge requiring upgrading a certain number of walls or buildings, they will only have to complete as much as they can still upgrade. If they are fully maxed out and cannot upgrade anything the challenge will be automatically completed.
  • New Clan Games and Gold Pass challenges for Invisibility Spell
  • All Season Challenges relating to Winning Battles with a Troop or Spell have had the quantity needed per battle reduced to 1 each. 

iOS Changes

  • The default frame rate for 120FPS iPad Pro models is set to 60FPS in order to preserve battery usage. If you wish to switch to 120FPS, there is a new Higher Frame Rate option under More Settings that will allow you to revert to 120FPS.
  • On supported devices we now use Apple’s Metal graphics API. This offers more efficient performance and should reduce power usage while playing the game.
  • In order to use Facebook’s social features it is now necessary to grant permission for cross app-tracking. This is unfortunately required by Facebook for us to offer this feature. Check out Supercell ID for privacy-friendly social features!
