The long-awaited March 2016 update to Clash of Clans is finally here, and it adds a whole bunch of new things that we’ve covered over the past couple weeks. Unfortunately, not all is pleasant news, as developer Supercell has been hit by a barrage of complaints about the new update.

The latest update has brought with it a new Dark Troop, the Bowler, and raised Inferno Towers and Mortars while adding upgrades to the Hog Rider, Valkyrie and Goblins. There’s also shortened spell brewing times, shortened Dark Elixir spell cooking times and a revamped matchmaking system.

Complaints about the upgrade include the infamous “device not compatible” message when trying to install the update on Google Play and reports that the account switching is broken and the base layout editor is crashing games. Supercell has responded to the complaints by starting a Bowler Update Bugs or Problems Thread over on their official forum.

The forum has recorded well over 40 pages of complaints, including upgrades taking too long, game crashes when trying to redesign a base and so on. Supercell has promised that they will attend to the issues introduced by the March update, so it seems an update or two might very well be on their way soon.

    That. Clash of Clans OF submit to you the time to find the right items in the game for at least the time when the game is to play all over.

    None of the recent updates & changes have fixed the December 2015 catastrophe. It would be better if Supercell turned the clock back to before the Dec update and left the game alone except for a few changes. These are: adding the stars bonus, loot cart, 3.5 minute battle timer & a few features that brought better order/coordination to the game’s regular operation. The new troops, levels, def levels (for mortars & inf twrs) and failed war matching “tweaks” could have all been discarded. Most of the updates from Dec 2015 to Apr 2016 are completely useless and only failed attempts to try and appease the global displeasure caused by the Dec update. Supercell stubbornly refuses to admit their mistake and continues to pack on useless & unnecessary garbage in hopes of appeasing millions of unhappy players. Sorry Supercell, but you fail to see that most of us are not so stupid. As a result, more and more have left Clash. Our lv6 clan all quit. I recently deleted all 3 of my accounts. Enough was simply enough.
