Clash of Clans December 2016 update for Winter features

By Alan Ng - Nov 30, 2016

Gamers will be getting excited for the next Clash of Clans update, which should be the main CoC December 2016 update or Winter update on Android and iOS which will follow on from the recent update, which brought Halloween 2016 to players and a new Gem Boost.

With the Clash of Clans Halloween update now finished, we can see that players are already looking forward to the next update and to see what Supercell will add to the game next to improve on gameplay which some have criticised this year.

New Clash of Clans December 2016 features: Judging by feedback seen on social media, it looks like two of the biggest requests that the community want to see are more achievements, arranged wars without the planning and a sleep mode for Clan Castles.

Supercell usually updates Clash of Clans on a Tuesday, or if not then typically the day after. This always happens after at least 4 Sneak Peeks so when that happens you know it is time to get ready for the release time – We can also give you a heads-up that the next Clash of Clans update should be out at the end of Novembe.

Some are still not happy with Clash of Clans on social media, but Supercell cannot please everyone. Are you fed up with all of the ‘hate’ that the game gets?

Bookmark this page and we’ll always keep you updated with release times for the update and also give you the first information on the next Clash of Clans October 2016 update.

Leave a comment like other Clash players below and tell us what features you personally want to see before the next CoC update for November goes live if there’s something you really want added to the game.

It seems a little early to start thinking about Christmas Trees in Clash of Clans, but what do you think will be coming next?

    Editor note: A new maintenance break in Clash of Clans today, with no warning or clues from Supercell. Are they making early plans for Christmas guys? Let us know what you want to see the most!!

  • NgTurbo

    The halloween update is now over guys, maintenance break is on to remove the 1 gem boost. What should come next to the game for the November patch?

  • ben green

    and generally speaking supercell better always upgrade defense before offence in future upgrades.if they want the game remain balanced a and exciting to play.

  • ben green

    and yet some guys in th11 complaining about that u cant 3 star th11 here is a question what do u want super cell make for u a game that freaking 2 years old can 3stars every thing that make u happy.

  • ben green

    it sad seeing dgb effect on hogs gone in addition to removing effect of tesla on pekka. those features of the game made the game very balanced and exiting sp in wars but now they r gone. with this recently updates th11 is very well balanced now, where as th9 is not and th10 is sth in between.

  • ben green

    hi

  • 访问您的博客已成习惯!

  • Fiona

    sick of waiting if they aren’t ready they shouldn’t tell us it’s happening… when its not

    • NgTurbo

      Coming today Fiona I think

  • NgTurbo

    Patch notes for October update are live, added them below. Update is coming very soon, who’s excited??

  • ben green

    its great if supercell make mortar 8 available in th9 because we th9s also get attack by miners mass troops and loose lots of loots to th10 players, and if super cell do the same thing to wizard tower as they did for mortars that makes alot better for the game in general.

  • ben green

    good change and upgrade for the mortars, it was really needed, now how about same upgrade for wizard tower. wizard tower 10 will boost splash damage and make it harder for mass troop attack.

  • ben green

    great news great updates

  • NgTurbo

    Sneak Peek 1 coming soon!

  • NgTurbo

    Next Clash of Clans update is coming in October guys, according to Supercell. Anyone else bored with the wait?

  • osman

    At th8 we should use elixir for walls. It is not balanced. If you wanna upgrade townhall after every thing finished, you waste elixir for a long time.

  • NgTurbo

    Rumors about a new Spider troop again, would you guys want to see this?

  • ralph regie macalam

    How about in clan war there is bet either elixir/gold or gem and much fun if have an entrance fee per war cause looting in war now a days not that worth

    • NgTurbo

      Nice idea Ralph

  • NgTurbo

    Guys, game is down for a maintenance break right now, only server fixes though. What features should Supercell add next for the big September update?

  • ben green

    rewarding few gems to the winner after each war would be amazing.

  • ben green

    how about having two base per players in each war, this way three attacks in war would be viable.

  • ben green

    to make the game more amazing. how about having clan war league . and at the end of each league players of champion clan can be rewarded by gems, this also solve the problem of shortage of gems in the game.

  • ben green

    another way to balance power of miners mass attack is make mortar or wizard tower damage 2x on miners

  • ben green

    and how about 5 stars instead of 3. 2 for town hall 1 for 50 percent 1 for 80 percent and 1 for 100 percent destruction. this way people will be less eager to put their town hall outside because their lose more trophy than before. and in clan war it makes players to go for more different ways of attack. and of course it would be great after u upgrade the defense.

  • ben green

    miners HP is WAY TO HIGH.

  • ben green

    make mortars and wizard towers great again.

  • ben green

    the only town hall which remain balanced to some degree at high level town halls 9/10/11, is th9 . u really need to do sth about th10/11 defense as soon as possible.

  • ben green

    introducing miners and bowlers into the game, push the players toward mass troops strategy which is not good at all. no body use any other strategy in th10/11 rather than mass miner and bowler.

    • ralph regie macalam

      I agree with this

      • ben green

        ”unsubscribe”

  • ben green

    although improving canon dp is good idea generally but it does not do any thing good against mass miners or bowler attacks. may be u need to make wizard tower and mortar stronger or introduce level 10 mortar and wizard tower.

  • ben green

    another drawback for miners that they ant that expensive so people use them for framing. with using them being economical they can just make flat any base and take out the hard earned loots easily and for lower level th9 who dosent have miners but yet they get attacked by miners its not fear at all. they lose every things every time they get attacked even if they r maxed th9.

  • ben green

    as a fan of this game i do not expect super cell to address all these tomorrow but these r issues that need to be considered in the long run.

  • ben green

    u can not add too many features like all kinds of new troops and spells for attack without any thing significant for defense and still expecting a balance game

  • ben green

    the other aspect of defense is cc troops which is pretty useless these days. if it is possible to make cc radios adjustable, lets say from 5 tiles to the rest of the base. this would boost the defense a lot.

  • ben green

    currently players just use mass miners and bowlers to 3 stars bases in th 10 and 11 with no particular strategy. just mass miners/bowlers + heroes and that’s it. this is not cool if u add new troops it should add verity to the types of attacks not make amazing troops like valks/hogs/pekka useless.

  • ben green

    right now th10 and 11 r quiet imbalance. u really need to do sth more about it

  • ben green

    if i emphasizing on skeleton traps as an army to defend the base is because this types of defense give players this opportunity to defend their base more strategically. and this make the game more interesting.this way we can plan both offence and defense.

  • ben green

    strengthen the defense with increasing the number of skeleton traps and giant bombs. increasing them by one or two and also ad different types of skeleton traps. u can introduce the type of skeleton traps beside normal ones with the option of targeting particular type of troop as their prime target. if this is not feasible u can introduce giant skeleton with the ability of attacking both ground and air troops in a same time with special weapon like flame thrower.

  • ben green

    there is also another way to balance the game even without any big change in miners and bowlers abilities in the long run. strengthen the defense.

  • ben green

    but seriously 4 points decrease is not significant for miners speed. i know its a game and it shouldn’t be too realistic. but how miner is the third fastest elixir troop after goblin and archer. while they r digging underground but yet they r faster than wizard and barbarians.once again their HP, DP and speed r still too high and need balancing, i recommend speed of giants for miners and their HP also need to be as half as it is.

  • ben green

    got the update

  • NgTurbo

    Update is going live, today! Fantastic news.. maintenance break is still on, anyone have the new update yet?

  • ben green

    bowler is another troop is too strong. and why with that big stones they carry their housing space is just 6. it should be 8 as valks who carry ax which is lighter weapon have housing space of 8. this way their power will be a bit more balance as players cant take less numbers of them to the battle.

  • ben green

    great balancing specially toward miners and power of canons which make defense stronger. and about miners u can also decrease the hp of them because its just reasonable. look they have HP of 500, 5 times more then barbarian level 5, why ? for a unit which goes under ground and the defenses have such short time to hit them 500 HP is way too much.

  • NgTurbo

    Hi guys, just added the latest patch notes. The balancing update should be going live soon, let us know when you have it!

  • NgTurbo

    Clash of Clans down for maintenance, Aug 9. 1 Gem boost coming to an end, no update today guys! Just keeping you in the loop

  • ben green

    very important point for strengthening the defense is too make cc radios adjustable, lets say from 5 tile to all over the base.

  • ben green

    bowler and miners r too strong, too balance after strengthening the defense u can upgrade valk and hog rider to one level higher instead of upgrading bowler and miner who r already too strong. hogs and valk r amazing troops becouse of miners and bowlers they r not used often in th 10 and 11

  • ben green

    u can ad one more skeleton trap and two giant skeleton trap which have two units inside when they r maxed. this way the whole skeleton units in th11 will be 20 units.

  • ben green

    to strengthen the defense u can introduce giant skeleton which is much more power full than normal ones. u can give them special weapon to target both ground and air troops in a same time, weapon like a flamethrower device. also u can give them nice outfit like pirate outfit rather than being fully naked.

    Updated coc app last night and played at least for 4 hours and slept . but when I woke up and tried to open it , its irresponsive . I tried 100s of times , uninstall and downloaded again . still irresponsive . its pretty upsetting for those Clasher like me . hope you will respond this comment

  • NgTurbo

    Wow, one gem boost for all collectors for ONE week! Happy anniversary guys. Didn’t see this coming!

  • NgTurbo

    Doesn’t look like another update is coming in July, so what does everyone want to see from the next Clash of Clans update in August?

  • NgTurbo

    New mini update is live! Details updated above, also added video for you guys. Who is liking the new levels?

  • ben green

    but most importantly strengthen the defence

  • ben green

    clan war is most exiting feature of the game should play more significant role in player total points and clan total points. now it is just the trophies. time of preparing for war can reduce to 12 hrs. number of players attack can increase up to 3 attacks.

    • jijijiji2004

      3 attacks would mean 100% destruction on both sides for most wars!! No way!!

  • ben green

    offence is ridiculously stronger than defense coc dev must upgrade the defense, they can add some more g bomb like 1 more giant bombs lets say in th9 and above increase the number of skeleton traps and make the miners their first target, miners are toooo strong. clan c troops radios should be adjustable.
    also they should decrease the time for upgrading defensive building. they can also add some more walls in th11. and in trophy hunting defense win should not get any trophy so players have to play themselves rather than their defense to win trophies. clan total points should also be based on trophies and clan war points. there should be some sort of points for clan war to add on clan total points.

    • jijijiji2004

      nooo winning on defense is half the game, or it’s supposed to be

  • NgTurbo

    New update details are above guys, Supercell has an optional update live on iOS, Android stores with some important fixes from yesterday’s update.

  • zinwine1359@gmail.com

    hi

  • Why cant I view War Details as a Spectator now? I am Leader of my clan and currently upgrading Barb King. But now I cant view war Details ?

  • James Bond 007

    Oh Yeah!

  • NgTurbo

    Update is LIVE! Enjoy

  • James Bond 007

    What?

  • Quinnie Thomas

    I just don’t like that you can’t watch replays after the break when you are in war

  • James Bond 007

    Plss Make The Baby Dragon Upgrade On Th8 And Miner On Th9 And Spell Positions Are Gud! Pls Accept The Requirements…Thnx…

  • Sam

    I can’t wait this is probably the best update so far

  • Juney Windross

    My clan are really looking forward to the friendly challenges. In particular, I like the idea of a baby dragon in the th9 (I’m quite a noob in th9). However, I still find the 3 min attack frustrating 3 min and 15 secs?? All will be revealed in less than 2 hours now.

  • Hope they can Dark Elixir on Goblin Challenges

  • RangeRoverII

    Supercell instead of improving is becoming worse… the updates are not at all so good..
