The Clash of Clans Spring 2020 update will cut prices across the board to numerous buildings, troops, spells and traps.
Last week, Supercell confirmed that the next update for Clash of Clans is in the works and likely coming this Spring (probably within the next few weeks). The new update probably won’t introduce a new Town Hall, as that came in December, but we can still expect new content, quality of life improvements and other tweaks to gameplay mechanics.
In fact, last week, the developer details a pretty lengthy list of Builder Base changes coming with the Spring 2020 update. It will include a controversial tiebreaker mechanic as well.
While it seems we’ll have to wait a bit longer for the sneak peeks at some of the new content to start rolling in, Supercell did share some Quality of Life improvements that will be going into effect with the update.
Chief among them is a price reduction for upgrading various buildings, troops, heroes, spells and traps. In some instances, the price to upgrade has been reduced by as much as 50 percent.
Walls from level five through seven will be discounted by 20 percent while the later levels (9-11) will drop by a whopping 50 percent. The Barbarian, Archer, Giant, Goblin, Wall Breaker, Balloon, Wizard, Dragon, P.E.K.K.A, Baby Dragon, Miner, Minion, Hog Rider, Valkyrie and Golem will all have their upgrade prices reduced at varying levels, as will the Archer Queen and Barbarian King. For traps and bombs, the price reductions will apply to Lightning, Freeze, Skeleton Spell, Bomb, Spring Trap, Air Mine and Seeking Air Mine.
Most of the reductions are around the early to mid-levels, which is good for newer players as well as those who may not have as much time to grind. Clash of Clans is notoriously known for its grind, perhaps turning off players early on.
The 2019 Spring Update featured similar reductions in what looked like an effort to address the game’s downtime. Troops and buildings had their upgrade cost and time reduced. Currently, Supercell has only detailed upgrade price reductions but it will be interesting to see if they also announce changes with upgrade times.
These upgrade price reductions coupled with the changes being made to Builder Base — like removing training times — are all welcomed improvements as Supercell continues to try and make Clash of Clans a more active game experience. There’s nothing worse then logging in and being unable to do anything meaningful because you’re either saving for resources or waiting for troops to train or buildings to upgrade.
