Clash of Clans may be getting updates in the month of October. This happens to coincide with the upcoming Clash Con gathering that will take place on October 24.

According to Android Origin, there may be a level 11 Town Hall upgrade. Previously, players saw the addition of level 10 Town Halls in September. The same publication predicts that Barbarians may be upgraded to Level 8. However, it remains to be seen if these theories will pan out.

Three Weeks Until Clash Con

Last week, Newseveryday reported a rumor suggesting that Clan War Tournament will be introduced during Clash Con, which will be held in Helsinki, Finland. At this time, Supercell is keeping mum on what will be revealed at the major event.

Previously, the game developer teased Clash fans with an ad showing four empty spots in the Dark Barracks, along with a "coming soon" sign. For now, the significance of this advert is anyone's guess.

Ticket for Clash Con went up for sale starting in late July, but have since then been sold out. The event features guests from the YouTube community including Chief Pat, Galadon, ClashwithAsh, Molt, Alvaro845 and Godson. According to the official Clash Con site, fans from over 30 countries will be attending the Clash of Clan gathering.

What Was Introduced in the Previous Update

When Supercell launched the Summer 2015 update, many goodies were added to the mobile game.

This included the level 5 dragon, which is available with Town Hall Level 10 players. The level five dragon costs 8 million elixir, and requires an updated Laboratory. Happily though, the cost of the level four dragon has been reduced to 6 million elixir without the need for an updated Laboratory.

For gameplay balance, lightning spells can no longer be used to destroy elixir storage to steal loot. The spell can still be used to kill enemy troops and resource collectors. Previously, the Lightning Spell gave players the ability to kill troops and destroy storage areas to seize loot. It was virtually impossible to counter this move, making it one of the more popular features of the game. After the Summer 2015 Update, the spell is starting lose some of its potency.

In the meantime, all spells now require less training time. For instance the Lightning and Healing spells now take only 20 minutes instead of the previous 30. Rage, Freeze and Jump spells now take 30 minutes instead of 45.

Regarding troops, lower ranking players can now unlock dragons. This serves as an excellent counter to more senior players who already have stronger bases. Training costs for Barbarians, Archers, Dragons and P.E.K.K.A have been adjust for some levels. The recent update also increases several building hitpoint values.
