Clash of Clans newest update, dubbed "Saved War Base," is now available for download. As revealed in the patch notes yesterday, the main focus of this update, like the name suggests, is on Clan Wars. The update contains a number of features aimed at improving the overall Clan Wars experience, like a separate war base layout and editor, more in-depth Clan Wars stats, and other interface improvements.
It's worth pointing out that the new update does seemingly have a few hiccups that Supercell is looking into. Apparently, there are some issues with chat and some other bugs that have popped up. Supercell is working to fix these problems.
Here are the official patch notes:
War Base layout and War Base Edit Mode!
- Been wanting to keep a separate layout for your War Base? Now you can!
- Your War Base layout now has a life of its own and will persist from war to war without the need to touch your regular village.
- War Base Edit Mode is available on the Clan War map during preparation day only. Layouts are still locked during battle day.
- Upgrades in your village are still automatically applied to your War Base, but remember to place any new buildings into your War Base layout!
