Supercell announced a new update in October 2014. It’s called the Halloween update or the Halloween event. It will feature a Halloween theme to the village obstacles and spells. You will also get the famous 1 gem boost for your spell factory, there will also be a special obstacle called the “Halloween Headstone” which will give you 50.000 elixir. We have a list with all updates.
If there is a maintenance break you will get an automatic boost pause for your spells, barracks and heroes. After the break you can tap on the “resume” button and your boost will continue. This way you don’t loose any boost time during breaks.
There will be new clan settings and there is a advanced clan search feature. You can search for clan location (by country or international), war frequency, member count and clan points .
Each clan will have a unique clan tag, there where several problems finding some clans due to duplicate names. Especially with the popular clans. With the unique clan tag this problem is gone.
There will be a new trap named the skeleton trap. It will cost 6.000 gold and the description is: “Ambush and distract unsuspecting foes with a surprise skirmish of short-lived, but sneaky skeleton troops! Skeleton Traps can be configured to pursue either ground or air troops.
The skeleton trap will have 3 levels, the higher the more skeletons it can spawn.
During the Halloween weekend there will be a few temporary features:
- The pumpkin bomb.
- Halloween themed obstacles.
- Some troops are lowered in training time and costs.
- 1 Gem boost for the spell factory.
There are going a few rumors that are not officially announced. It is not sure if these are true:
- 4th Mortar
In a few videos there are shown villages with 4 mortars.
- Town hall 11
A lot of Youtubers are talking about this but it is not officially announced. Town Hall 9 was introduced in the 2012 Halloween update so it is possible.
