If you like your clans clashing, then you probably play Clash of Clans (Free) and are anxiously awaiting Clashcon 2015, the first ever to be dedicated solely to that somehow-successful game. First, let’s start with this fun event for the dedicated Clash of Clans players. ClashCon 2015 will take place in Helsinki, October 24th, and will feature a live Clan Wars tournament involving the top Clashers, a panel discussion on the finer points of army composition, attack strategy workshops that teach you the fine art of attacking, plenty of 5-on-5 Clan Wars, a single player challenge that has you fighting against the Goblin horde, a workshop on building your base, and much more. It’s amazing how much this game has grown; not many games are large enough to have their own Con and be sure that plenty will turn up.
The game also got an update to balance some issues. So, here we go. Some spells, like Lightning, Poison, Earthquake, and Freeze Spells (which now also affect defending air troops), have been reworked, and a new Lightning Spell level 7 has been added that ravages both buildings and troops. Twenty-five new Wall pieces have been added, available when your Town Hall reaches level 10. Total Destruction now works as a Clan Wars tiebraker to help break score ties, and Lava Hounds can no longer target air troops. If you want to check the changes out in more detail, go here. If you are one of the brave and willing that will make the Helsinki trip for ClashCon, you can get your tickets here.
