CoC Jul 2014 Sneak Peek!

Yay!!! It's time for the Sneak Peek.
You will be SHOCKED! because...

Heroes Changes!!
Our Heroes remain at your service, Chief! But this time, with stronger abilities, readjusted strengths and smarter defending. The King and Queen are now much smarter on defense, have distinct strengths and weaknesses, and their abilities are more important than ever.

1. Heroes can no longer be lured out to some corner of the village and get smashed there. Now, they will become like a defensive building (they're still not defenses, they will not be targeted as such) and will only attack troops that step inside their territory; if a troop tries to lure them out of that territory, they will retreat.

2. Hit points and damage for the Queen and hit points for the King have been slightly increased at lower levels. However, hero hit points and damage have been decreased at higher levels in order to balance heroes on defense and allow for stronger abilities.

3. Hero Abilities now improve much more significantly with each new ability level so the best way to make your hero stronger when attacking is to increase their ability level!
Clash of Clans

Barbarian King
  • His damage has been reduced, but he now can heal himself greatly when using the Iron Fist ability (the health points being increased upon the activation of his ability).

Giant Bomb

What is Giant Bomb?
Giant Bomb is the bigger and deadlier version of Bomb. It is a bit expensive to use but the damage and damage radius are really worth the cost. With November 2013 updates, you can upgrade your Giant Bomb for more damage output and bigger damage radius.
Clash of Clans Trap
When you’re looking for a Big Boom, you need the Giant Bomb.
Giant Bomb level 1-2 / level 3-4

Similar to Bomb, Giant Bomb stays hidden until enemy walk close to it. When enemy reach Giant Bomb’s trigger radius, it appears and shortly explode itself dealing huge amount of damage in an area around itself.
Clash of Clans Trap

 Giant Bomb Fact
Trigger radius = 2 Tiles
Damage type = Area Splash
Favorite Target = Any
Targets = Ground
Clash of Clans Trap

Giant Bomb is great to use for the battle between high level Town Halls, it can instantly kill any small troops including Wizard. It also helps reduce some hit points of Giant group which makes your defense buildings to kill them off faster.

Defense Tactics for Giant Bomb

1) Outside you base
Place Giant Bomb outside you Wall help kill some incoming attacker before they can reach your base. The risk is that it will be useless to trigger by lone Barbarian or Archer that just walking pass.

2) Behind first layer of Wall
When attacker breakthrough the Wall, the troop will be funneled together. One big boom is generally good enough to weaken attacker’s army.

3) Key location
Place near Town Hall if you care about trophy. Place near Storage if you want to wipe out horde of Goblin. Sometimes, place Giant Bomb near key defense building like Inferno Tower or X-Bow is also good to protect them from getting swarmed by tier 1 troops.

What is Bomb?
Bomb is your first accessible Trap in the game. It is very cheap, and that’s why it deals very little damage. With November 2013 updates, you can upgrade your Bomb for more damage output.
Clash of Clans Trap
Nothing says ‘STAY OUT’ quite like a good old-fashioned hidden bomb.
Bomb level 1-2 / level 3-4 / level 5

Bomb stays hidden until enemy walk close to it. When enemy reach Bomb’s trigger radius, it appears and shortly explode itself dealing small damage in an area around itself.
Clash of Clans Trap

 Bomb Fact
Trigger radius = 1 Tiles
Damage type = Area Splash
Favorite Target = Any
Targets = Ground
Clash of Clans Trap

For the battle between low level Town Halls, these little Bomb are ok for dealing damage to low level troops like Barbarian and Archer. However, these Bomb deal insignificant damage to strong troop such as Giant and P.E.K.K.A.

Defense Tactics for Bomb
1) All for One – One for All
Place all of your Bombs together in one location, preferably at the location where enemy are likely to attack your base. This tactic allows all Bombs to explode together dealing cumulative damage, for example, 6 Bombs can deal lethal damage to Wizard.

2) Dual Bomb
Because Archer is the most prevalent troop in the game, place 2 upgraded Bombs together can effectively kill group of Archer. Place them at key location to kill 5-10 Archers can help weaken attacking army.

3) Interrupt troop movement
When Bomb explodes, it temporarily stops movement of any small troop in that area. Place in front of Storages can shortly stop Goblin from stealing your Resouce which allow Mortar or Wizard to kill them off. Place in front of Wall one space apart can stop Wall Breaker from destroying the Wall which allow Canon or Archer Tower enough time to kill them.
