Clash of Clans March Update – Clan War Improvements

Hello my friends, the new Clash of Clans March Update will be released soon in next 2-3 weeks and it will be mostly about the Clan War Matchmaking system in game. This is such a good news for the War Community. Lots of new improvements will improve the quality of the War matchups.


After this update, you will usually find you have to wait a bit longer than before as it will provide a more competitive and fun War for all Clans (At this time, it takes about 5-20 minutes to find a War).

Here are couples of the major changes in the upcoming update:

  • War 35vs35 and 45vs45 are going to be removed in order to boost the available Clans in queue.
  • The new update will place a greater emphasis on defensive buildings and less emphasis for troops. This is awesome for players who use my Town Hall 8.5 and 9.5 trick.
  • Powerful defenses and troops like the Inferno Tower, Eagle Artillery and Grand Warden will have a lot of more weight in Clan Wars. Another good news for TH8.5 and 9.5 players!
  • The Clan War will be based on the recent win/loss records of both Clans: In game, some Clans find it really hard to get a win, while some others can win most Wars with ease and rarely can find a fit opponent. With this new update, in order to help Clans find better matches, the matchmkaing system will also work based on the competitiveness. “Win streak” will face “Win streak” and so on.
  • There will be no imbalanced war matchups.

At this time, there isn’t any information about the upcoming troop. I am really waiting for that.

I will try to update everything about this new update as soon as possible. Thanks for reading my friends! Don’t forget to share with your friends this new update ;). Cheers!


  1. So, this time searching war should wait at least 20 minutes to get fair fight?
    Last time search need below 10minutes at least for my clan to get a bit fair war.
    If goes up usually match up with easier/harder clan.
    This mean no need to cancel war search if more than 10minutes?

  2. Hey, pal. Seems to be easy life for x.5 town halls. I’ve just entered on th9.5. But there is not so much information about it. How about super-mega-pro-guide with pros and cons of such town halls, war and farm layouts. Because my clanmates are so sceptic about that: full th10 or full th9 only. Can we convince them? Seems to me such expanded guide can do that 😀

  3. If the new matchmaking system emphasis on defensive buildings, what about defenseless TH10s hiding among TH5s? As long as .5 tricks are working, it still wont be fair and balanced. IMO, SC should emphasis more on TH level, so that fully maxed out THs become the best policy. Correct me if i m wrong.

    • thats the beauty of defenseless. I have a th7 with lvl2 drags which ranks below a th3 player. TH level shouldn’t matter, its the defense that should really matter imo. Coc is a game for attacking, so as long defenses are weak your weight must be low.

  4. The new update will place a greater emphasis on defensive buildings and less emphasis for troops. This is awesome for players who use my Town Hall 8.5 and 9.5 trick.

    …so it means we can get the witch/lava now from 8.5? 🙂

  5. The missmatches are absolutely crazy these days…last war our best player is a maxed out TH 10 and theirs is TH 11 with Eagle and level 7 Warden,current war 11 TH 9s or above each side but we have 7 with level 3 X-Bows whereas all of them have them,and the rest of their players are maxed out TH 8s which our TH 8s probably won’t 3-star…anyway -_-
    Got a question for you Will,is there a guide on the site about the use of witches?I just upgraded them to level 2 and am a bit afraid of using them in Clan War at the moment;so is it worth using them,how many of them and how to use them?Thanks a lot 🙂

  6. Th10$ should only be matched with th10$ not th11$ if everyone was matched with someone the same th lvl it would fix most problems my th10 shouldnt ever be matched with a th11 even if there rushed it can still cause an unfair advantage and the .5 trick needs to be fixed also someone with lvl5 wiz should never be paired with a th6 thats what needs to be fixed in my opinion
