Clash of clan update coming HUGE

Balancing Changes! May 2017 Update Ticker

may 2017 update balancing changes
The next update is on the horizon and it’s time to gather all important info in one place.
It’s difficult to see what’s coming considering Supercell doesn’t have a fixed schedule for their updates or a fixed roadmap for new features. They seem to work more or less with “it’s done when it’s done” (at least they stick with what they say it will be).
However, there is always update info that gets thrown out before the official announcement comes. This can include extractions from the game code, developer publications in the official forum, or from people who are under NDA with Supercell (some YouTubers, Forum Administrators or other people).
I’m not one of those, so I’m not bound to any regulations. I can post anything I want and that’s what I do.
I will always check any leak I find and if I see one that makes sense from a trustful source, I will immediately show it here – but also expect me to show fake leaks and tell you why they are fakes.

Clash of Clans May 2017 Update

Note: Due to many requests I switched the order from the bottom (old) to top (most recent). If you’re visiting this page for the first time and want to get the whole story, you’ll need to start from the bottom.

Balancing Changes Announced (May 18th, 2017)

Supercell just announced the balancing changes that will be released along with the boat update in May:
Hey Chief!
As you know we are working on a massive update, completely different from every other update and we couldn’t be more excited to show it to you (very soon!).
In the meantime, learn about the balancing update for your home village that will go live at the same time as the BIG update! This round focuses on powering up late-game spells and helping the grind through Town Hall level 9.
The Balancing Changes are:
  • NEW: Clone Spell level 5 (Town Hall 11)
  • Clone Spell levels 1-5 clone capacity increased • Clone Spell level 3 now available at Town Hall 10
Weak Clone Spells are underwhelming, especially at Town Hall 10, so we’ve unlocked more cloning capacity. The newest Clone Spell reaches 40 capacity, letting you get 8 Balloons or even 2 Dragons per spell!
  • NEW: Freeze Spell level 6 (Town Hall 11)
When facing off against the Eagle Artillery, every second of a Freeze Spell counts. The newest level helps to give your troops the time they need.
  • NEW: Heal Spell level 7 (Town Hall 10)
The utility of Heal Spells becomes quite limited against the heal-blocking effects of the Inferno Tower. A new level will help make those healing opportunities more compelling.
  • 7th Gold Mine and Elixir Collector now available at Town Hall 9 (was 10)
Resources are tight on Town Hall 9, so giving earlier access to these collectors will help ease the grind.
  • Bomb damage increased
This highly important change ensures that one Bomb will always destroy a Wall Breaker of equal level.
  • Balloon attack rate increased
Balloons have enjoyed very high use rates since their latest “fast drop” balancing. This change doesn’t affect the speed of the fast drop or damage per second, but an increased attack rate means each bomb does less damage. This softens their initial attack, but makes follow-up attacks happen sooner.
Upgrade Time/Cost Discounts:
  • Freeze Spell levels 1-5
  • Clone Spell levels 1-5
  • Heal Spell levels 4-5

New Troop or not? (May 17th, 2017)

A new ad campaign from Supercell launched in Korea and since it was going around the web, people are discussing if we’re seing a new troop there or if that’s just splash water.

Obviously, it’s the Barbarian from the initial trailer who ran into the water.
This discussion is nothing new, since the leaked loading screen also had something similar on it (foot of the first Barbarian):

I personally don’t expect a new troop, since something water related would only fit for the new Versus-Battles that we will get in the update and wouldn’t be useful for the regular attacks in Multiplayer or Clan War (as there is no water).
However, it looks not exactly like splash water and it also can be something.
What do you think?
