Heads up: Supercell unleashed a massive update to Clash of Clans [Free] this morning that added a ton of new mechanics, new unit upgrades, and some important tweaks. The change list is exhaustive, so get a coffee, a blanket, and buckle up before you dive into it.

To us, the most notable tweaks, changes, and additions are within the new unit upgrades section of the update. With a level 6 laboratory, barbarians get sharper swords and new helmets, archers get new bow techniques, and giants become "heartier," to name a few of the new things. Also, Heroes have seen some changes, including the ability to patrol a much larger radius.

If you're into Clash, check out those notes courtesy our sister site AppShopper. If you aren't a big fan, well, you can always gripe about the game in the comments.

      LOL Yeah same here. There really isn't much to gripe about on this game besides the fact that it's addicting and sucks you in.

    Good guy SuperCell:
    Made universal, Game Center supported freemium(s) /games/ witch are fully playable without any real money need to spend.
    Even reinvent Farmville in a good way.

    Thay should make a Zoo Tycoon like freemium with build-able fences and environments, Zoo market and stuff like that.
    Or a premium Zoo Tycoon like game.
    I alway miss that game :(

      Hay day?

      I mostly agree..would fully agree if they'd release for android so I can enjoy the game on my Note 2 and sell off my iphone finally!

  • araczynski

    so do they still have the mechanic where other players get to steal your stuff? even if you spend real money on it? kinda quit playing as soon as that great feature was brought into play during the tutorials.

    • Holcman

      Why would you spend money on gold and elixir? If you mean gems, they can't steal that. This raid system is better than other games' because after being raided, there's a quite large period of time where no one can raid you. It gives you plenty of time to get back your resources and more.

      • araczynski

        3 currencies? JFC, in any case, getting your stuffz stolen just doesn't strike me as 'fun', personally.

      • Aafko

        At least it's not like that Valor: Trial By Swords game. When your city gets completely overrun, it's game over. I just had my maxed city razed and lots months of progress.

      • Money Loo

        I feel ya man, I just deleted the game this morning because I woke up to find I'd been attacked three times in the last 24 hours and lost 750K gold.

        And despite what Holcman up there is sayin, it's barely enough to break even sometimes and just NOT fun being essentially a farm city for someone else.

      • araczynski

        of course they conveniently sell IAP to alleviate the gang rapes for a few days.

        anyway, i'd pay good money to hire they art/animator person(s).
