The History of Clash of Clans – By HaVoC Gaming

What’s going on guys havoc, you know back with a video, and today we were to be taking a look at the history of clash of clans over the past seven years. What I thought I’d stop at five years, but here we are back at it again. Clash of clans is a well-aged game and It’s crazy to think we’re only three years away from a full decade to celebrate its seventh birthday, though we’re going to be going down memory lane seven years of clash of clans history now to keep this video short.

We’re going to be skimming through every single update, but only mentioning the key changes that made up the game. We know today it is seven years so uh you know going over. Every detail will probably make a seven-hour video. So no thanks. Don’t worry, though, everything you need to know is in this video. So with that being said, let’s get right into it. On August, 2nd 2012 clash of clans was gone belief released on iOS. You heard that right, no soft lunch just dove right in anyways.

The game was different: we had a waterfall, the max Tahoe was eight and the graphics were 2012 standard. Nothing crazy! You know people were playing on their iPhone 3G, so it couldn’t get crazy. Anyways. Few weeks later, on the 30th of August, the first ever update was made. This introduced some new cool goodies like the Tesla new decorations and graphic improvements to make the game look more tanked September 18 spells were finally added to the game, but only three slowdown.

This was the lightning heal and rage along with spells replays were added to battles, so you could now watch them over magic, huh, a new building. There was a tower and the time to build walls was finally removed. Yeah before this walls took time to build like any other building, well what a time to be alive a October 15, the kick message and clan children requirement were added to clans. Two weeks later, on October 27th, the first seasonal update came out Halloween, but that wasn’t everything townhall 9 was now here, and it was the highest tell hall.

There was along with this was the expo a jump spell. Unfortunately, though, this was also the update in which supercell removed the ability to sell your buildings. It was nice having that feature, but it didn’t last long plus it wasn’t exactly useful if you wanted to progress anyways. So trust me, you aren’t missing out on any they November 19. The first we’re update the village was covered in snow for the first time. Nutria obstacles and the Santa spell clan castle troops were now able to jump walls instead of just being in one small spots, because before this update clan castle, troops didn’t have the ability to jump walls.

The ability to boost buildings such as he spell factory and collectors was finally added, as well as a Christmas update special that later became permanent on January 10. This was one of the biggest updates in history. Wow feels weird to be talking about 2013 so long ago. Anyways, where was I oh yeah, big update? You know. Heroes were added which at the time was a big big deal, but it was just the key in Queen. Along with all this, we also had the introduction to dark elixir, obviously because it kinda need it for the heroes you know.

So we got a storage and a drill. The 5th of February, we got two new traps: the air bomb, any seeking air mine. Of course, there was many other small changes and improvements, but we’re going over seven years of history. So, let’s keep it short. Shall we March 12th 2013 dark glittered troops were introduced, the minions hog rider and Valkyrie and, of course, the barracks to train those troops about a month later, on April 17 leaves were added to separate players from being in one massive leak which, by the way, was None you literally had no League. The Golem was also added in this update. Back in the day, the Golem was seen as a glorified unbeatable troop. Moving on to May 23rd Town Hall 10 was introduced.

We got to see new stuff like the inferno tower. This update was huge. There was a lot of balance. Changes as well and spoiler alert. Town Hall 10 will be in a last Touhou for the next two years, well kind of feel bad for 14-year old me, 17th of June. A new spell was added called the freeze. This update wasn’t as huge, but that’s because it was more of a balanced update rather than an actual updates.

We had a ton of these down the road. So if I skip an update, you know why, just about a week later after that, as well, an extra mine and pump was added to tell all ten that’s about it, yeah literally July 28th. If we got a new dark electric troop, the which we got the chance to now share replays to the clan chats and the ability to mute players in global, because people can be annoying, you know on August 2.

This day was the day where clash of clans became available for Android kidney wood playing an Android phone until now, so yeah this day was pretty big. The 27th of August, the player profile, got a rework September 30th was a very important part of the history of clash of clans. You know why, because I started making videos now just kidding village, edit mode was added meaning now you didn’t have to move everything around the entire map to make a base.

This is also the reason why I started making videos, because it was now easier to showcase bases. October 10, we got the first ever optional bug fixed, update, nothing special, but I just wanted to mention that this was the first of its kind, because it was optional November 6. We could now upgrade traps previously. Traps were just traps, no level 1, 2 or 3. Now the button was also added to rearm. All of them at the same time also spells were updated to cost elixir instead of gold ever remember when this happened, and it was kind of weird at first, but I’m glad it did that because Academy Sense afterwards.

December 5, the last update of 2013 bought back the Christmas theme. A new multi target ability was added to your furrow tower, so we can now target a few troops at the same time, instead of one also level 3 was added to that same tower. So 2013 ended off pretty good January 29. 2014 heroes were given abilities, awesome co-leaders were added to clients. Yes, before this go, leaders didn’t exist. So now we had members elders, co-leaders and the leader on April knife.

This was a day that may clash of clans live up to its name. Yep, you guessed it right, clown, wars, okay! Now that was a joke by supercell. They actually pulled that not even getting I don’t know if you remember or not, but uh yeah. They finally revealed like a day later that it was actually client wars who woulda guessed. This was a massive update and, to this day It’s about 50 % of what the game is about.

Competition May 16th, they added the ability to save war bases and edit, along with other clan war improvements and fixes. They also made village edit mode available for town 3 on July 3rd. This was a huge, balanced update, stat changes, graphic improvements, hero, AI every work and finally live battle. Spectating was added to clan wars, to watch players as the attack back in a Southie. This was like magic. Oh, you can watch people as the attack. that’s crazy. Finally, the 16th of September and new dark electric troop was introduced, the lava hound October 22. We got a new track called the skeleton trap.

You could also now upgrade walls with elixir any level of walls. Literally, it doesn’t matter if it was level 3, 5 or 10. This didn’t last long, though, so you better take advantage of it. Well sorry, too, late, because now, on the level of December, the walls needed to be a minimum of level 9 yeah that went by pretty quick anyways multiple layouts were added to village edit mode. The ability to also watch live. Replays of your base getting attacked was also added. Before this update.

You could not watch what was going on why your base was getting attacked that was kind of lame, but now it was fixed enough. Complaining, 2015 came along and on February 24 clans now had levels. This make clans able to level up and earn perks that all clan members can benefit from April 30, a new defense was added the leafblower July 1st 2015. The dark spell factory was added, this meant dark spells, were also introduced, the poison spell earthquake and haste spell, and finally, more leagues were added TYIN and legend league moving on to September 9.

The main part of this update was a war tiebreaker. The war tiebreaker was pretty much a way to calculate who really won the war. Aside from that, though, tell 10 got 25 new walls, October 22, the usual Halloween decorations, but the next update on December 10 was bigger, and this update changed the game in many ways forever. First, off tell hall 11 we have Town Hall 11. We got to see the new ego artillery grand warden and extra defenses. This was also the update that made shield a big part of the game beforehand. You could leave your Town Hall outside and it wouldn’t matter now. If you left Town Hall outside the walls, it wouldn’t be a smart idea.

So now guarding your Town Hall was your only choice. They also added 30 seconds to the battle time. Since Tahoe 11 was such a huge base. You obviously needed more time to three-star. It’s 2016 was finally here and the loot cart was added Treasury in the clan castle and star bonuses, even though the loot cart, kinda didn’t work but yeah other than that, the ego artillery was giving the ability to deal three times more damage to golems March 21st. We got a new troop, the bowler.

There was also a ton of war changes, new troop levels and a lots of new defense levels. May 24 friendly challenges were added. We also got two new troops of the miner, any baby dragon and two new spells the clone and scallops of spell. Moving on to October 12th, we got a new defense from class Rico once again, add it over to clash of clans. This was the bomb tower Town Hall, 11 got 25 more walls and friendly Wars were added.

Finally, though, were already at the end of 2016, and on the 19th of December we got the Christmas update, which had deduced a new temporary troop, the ice wizard. We now had the freeze trap as well and he sounded surprised. May 22nd we got the biggest update in a while. The Builder base was introduced with new defenses and also a lot of cool stuff for the main village as well like multi, mortar and the archer towers fast or long-range toggle June 27th builder Hall 6 was introduced.

New troops, like the knight which came and new defenses, were all locked in the shop on September, 27, 2017 builder Hall 7 came along. We got the new giant cannon and the new dropship more levels for troops in the home, village and builder Hall clan war improvements and many more balance changes heading on to the 11th of October, though you could now stock, who was online, which was pretty cool friendly Battles for the builder Hall was added previously.

This was just for the home village and finally, a ton of rework for clan wars, more levels, clan restrictions and, more all the way. Over to December 18, the last update of 2017, we got a new feature called clan games, basically a new feature that would allow players in the clan to earn rewards other than that we got the usual seasonal changes and balance changes. Now, in 2018, on the 1st of February, fireworks and fortune trees were also added as an obstacle, a new loading screen and true support for the new iPhone X, the 5th of March. This update was huge.

Along with the new builder Hall eights. We got the mega Tesla super Pekka extra buildings traps and the batter machine got five more levels and for the whole village, more new cool features like this loader guy on the 11th of June. This update blew everyone at other socks. Where do we start? Talhah? 12? Yeah, let’s start there with till 12, we got siege machines and the siege workshop, the wall wrecker the Blin. We got the electro dragon. You can now change your name multiple times with gems clan improvements and much much more.

This update was pretty big but, of course, like I mentioned we’re going over nearly a decade of history. If you want to check it out for yourself, links will be down below for this entire article June 26. We got a lot of upgrade times reduced, and that was pretty much it just to make the game a little faster they’ve returned in October 23rd, with some more huge tank content. Clan war leaks we’ll get into the in just a second.

But this time the game was made even more faster new tornado trap, potions, magic items and more to sum up: clan war leaks though it was one week of the month where clans would battle to prove they’re the best, along with that there were now League medals. Fifty years later, on, the 10th of December supercell released the last updated 2018 new troop, the ice golem new bat spell new stone hammer, steed machine, a couple of new magic items, tons of new levels for buildings, the rest of the update was builder Home pace and Main village, quality of life changes and balance changes. Oh yeah, I forgot there was a maintenance break two days after this update, but hey that doesn’t really count as an update and then.

Finally, the first massive updates of 2019 arrived on February 20 seconds no way nevermind. That was another balanced update. This is awkward April, 2nd 2019. We got the real deal. Seasoned challenges, clang were leaked, changes, new levels and tons of balance changes. Now this update may not seem like it was a big deal, but all of these small parts is what really made it massive, so many new levels, economic changes, quality of life improvements and yet just in case you thought it was over, though it ain’t, because on the 18th of June 2019, the most recent update so far we got town hall 37.

You know, I’m aunt Bella tonight, along with Builder Hall, 9 was Neil elsword, of course, new buildings, new troops and a new defense. As for the main home village, though, we got some new hero levels, magic items, practice bill was introduced, new, allegedly matchmaking patterns and a ton of bug fixes but Jeff after the hats were literally right, where we are right now, so there hasn’t been in the update. So far, There’s probably gonna be one right after I upload this, but yeah so far.
