On 3 May 2016, Supercell announced their May 2016 update. The headline is unquestionably the army build time reduction. The posts on the Clash of Clan forums are applauding Supercell’s announcement as this will provide opportunities to build stronger armies quickly, which will enable more attacking, which in turn should convert to happier clashers.

This emphasises that Supercell are certainly not resting on their laurels, despite their continued dominance of the mobile gaming sector. An analysis of top grossing iPhone apps on 2 May 2016, reveals that Clash of Clans is ranked as one of the top 5 “free” grossing apps in 59 countries. On iPad it’s even more impressive where it’s the number 1 “free” grossing app in 24 countries and top 5 in 67 countries.

The countries where it’s the highest grossing “free” app includes France, Canada and Germany. Other heavyweights aren’t too far behind with it reaching number 2 in the UK and 3 in the USA.
