Another new Clash of Clans update has come out for May. This latest Clash of Clans update introduces Spring Trap improvements and another Balloon level for the game. A release from the people at Supercell reveals all of the game changes, with many users seeing them for the first time on Thursday, May 19. Adding three new levels to the Spring Traps, beginning with Town Hall level 7, will help to improve the defense of every village in the game. This is a big improvement that will be accessible by nearly every user.
Cannon level 14, Lava Hound 4, Balloon 7 and more!

Not all of the new features in the latest Clash of Clans updates are available to everyone just yet. By giving more information about what will come during May updates, it seems that the game creators are simply trying to create more buzz. With the summer months coming up for many players, this may be a way to convince gamers to stick with Clash of Clans to keep working on improving their villages and armies.
Higher level gamers are going to see the most improvements from this latest Clash of Clans update. Those players that have a Town Hall 11 will be able to upgrade the Cannon to level 14, the Lava Hound to level 4, and the Balloon to level 7. A reasoning for the improvements was explained in the update tease.
“In Town Hall 11, air armies have dwindled in popularity. These new levels should help revitalize high-level air armies while helping to defend against the ground rush.”
For users who are using a Town Hall 10 or higher, the housing space for a Bowler has been reduced from eight units to just six. By taking up less space in armies, this is a proactive way for Supercell to allow users more freedom with the Bowler. It’s a big chance for gamers that have just moved up to Town Hall 10.
“Bowlers just didn’t seem to be providing enough value for an 8 housing space unit, and the bulky size made him a tough fit in a well-rounded army.”
Hidden within the new May Clash of Clans update are several features that could make playing even more exciting and gamer friendly. One is that the Builder will soon provide suggested upgrades to gamers. This is an interesting wrinkle, as typically users have to figure out for themselves which upgrade to make next, but now the Builder will suggest upgrades to each village.
Another new feature in the May Clash of Clans update is that clans will be able to show off their war logs to other clans. These war logs will now be available for public view, but a clan can disable that function in settings if they want to keep it private. There is also going to be a counter for live spectators watching attacks. While it is really nothing more than an aesthetic improvement to the game, users taking part in wars can now see just how many clan mates are watching them as they do battle.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, this isn’t the only Clash of Clans update that has been revealed recently. Supercell also announced that a new feature called Friendly Challenges will be available soon. This new upgrade will allow people within the same clan to challenge their friends to attack their village. It is a way to test defenses and to allow challenges within the respective clans. It isn’t live yet, but the blog for the main Clash of Clans website indicates that it will be coming very soon. Users should expect it to be in place before the end of May.

Until all the updates, primarily that which includes the Friendly Challenge go live, the game creators are providing a gem boost for users to enjoy. Through the use of one gem, users can double the production output of gold mines and elixir drills within their villages for 24 hours. It is an easy way to work toward upgrading armies and a quicker method of improving within Clash of Clans.
