Clash of Clans Update Arrives Today; Air Sweeper Included

Attention Clashers! Supercell has released a brand new Clash of Clans update that is being downloaded to the game as we speak (at least on my device it is).

If you have kept tabs on everything that the developers have been teasing through sneak peaks in the recent days you would have a fairly good idea of what is coming your way.

However, fret not if you haven’t!

When the 90 minute long maintenance break ends, the most prominent thing you will notice is a new addition to the Shop. An item called Air Sweeper is being added to Clash of Clans. It is a brand new air defense system that instead of killing the enemy units, pushes them away with gushes of air. This unlocks at Town Hall 6.

  • Push back groups of flying enemies with strong blasts of air!
  • Air Sweepers deal no damage, but are great at slowing the progress of air attacks
  • Air Sweepers can only face one way, but can be rotated to a direction of your choosing
  • Unlocked at Town Hall 6, Air Sweepers gain more pushing strength when upgraded

Next up, you are going to be able to bookmark up to 30 clans. This will allow you to keep tabs on their progress and also let you compare them at a later date.

In order to let you go in prepared for the Clan Wars, you will get an army preview before you finally attack. You are also getting a one time name change option and an overview of the changes made in the clan settings through the chat.

Moving on, in Clan Wars matchmaking the strength calculations have been improved and also “loot values for many lower level single player maps have been improved, along with some slight layout tweaks and surprises.”

Last but not the least “you are now more likely to find targets at or near your Town Hall level in multiplayer matchmaking.”

The official forums of Clash of Clans have more details on the changes that are being made.
