While Clash of Clans' June 2019 update doesn't completely overhaul gameplay, it features several quality-of-life tweaks that make a huge difference. Adding the option for a sixth Builder, for example, lets players focus on their Home Village if that's something they prefer to prioritize. The Legend League menu, on the other hand, drastically improves matchmaking in Clan Wars for the game's best players. There is a bit more glitz and glamor on the Builder Hall side with a new troop and defense, even if those are just slight riffs on the characters we already know. In short, the Clash of ClansJune 2019 update is light on new features, but heavy on fan service. For those who play religiously, the game just got a whole lot more enjoyable and approachable.

Clash of Clans is available now on Android and iOS.
