Not too long ago, Supercell announced that Clash of Clans now has Friendly Challenges. Now, they’ve announced a couple of tweaks to how Friendly Challenges work, based on feedback from actual players. The tweaks include layout replacing restrictions and changes to the war preparation day. Read on to find out how these tweaks affect Friendly Challenges and what exactly is different now.
First off, layouts that have been modified within the last 24 hours will no longer be available to Friendly Challenges if you are Town Hall 9 or above. This restriction is not imposed on Town Hall 8 or below. It appears to have been brought in place so that friendly challenges will not affect Clan War dynamics, because Clan Wars are all about getting your attack right in the first go itself. Being able to grind and practice over and over again would ruin the appeal of that.
Next, because the layout cooldown is now 24 hours, scouting has been changed up as well. You will no longer see the opponent’s War Base layout during Preparation Day. Instead, you will see their active Village layout. When Battle Day dawns, scouting will remain as is. Let us know what you think about these changes in the comments below. We’ll keep you updated on more changes to Clash of Clans as they come.
