Shrink Trap Bug Heals Heroes! August 2017 Update Ticker

The next update is on the horizon and it’s time to gather all important info in one place.

It’s difficult to see what’s coming considering Supercell doesn’t have a fixed schedule for their updates or a fixed roadmap for new features. They seem to work more or less with “it’s done when it’s done” (at least they stick with what they say it will be).

I will always check any leak I find and if I see one that makes sense from a trustful source, I will immediately show it here – but also expect me to show fake leaks and tell you why they are fakes.

Shrink Trap Bugged & Heals Heroes (August 19th, 2017)

Reports lately grew that a bug in the Shrink Trap will heal Heroes when they get under the effect of the Shrink Trap. I also saw this happening myself so I moved the Shrink Trap to the very corner of my base designs (since there’s no possibility to “sell” built buildings or traps).

Here’s an example where you can see this happening – Click here.

I think this is because the hitpoints get converted when the Shrink Trap deduction takes part.

Now the big question for all of us is, of course, will Supercell pay attention to this with a fix? I’m not that sure since the trap is only supposed to be available until Friday (maybe you know the saying that there’s no use in cleaning paper plates…).

Bottom line I also don’t want to have this thing in my base for 6 more days when it heals up my enemy’s Heroes.

Shrink Trap Event Started (August 18th, 2017)

The Shrink Trap arrived and you can purchase it in the shop for 12,500 Gold and it will shrink down troops when triggered and give them a deduction in speed, hitpoints and DPS.

Once triggered, the Shrink Trap will shrink down every troop within the radius, also those who walk through it after it got triggered, including Heroes!

The effect of this trap can be huge, especially since it is also available in Clan Wars so make sure to update your War Base as well and place the Shrink Trap there.

You will also see a Witch taking the Builders role during this event, but there won’t be a Witch spawning when a Builder Hut gets destroyed!
