New this week in Thunder Run:

Level 16 Sapper and Elite Stinger Gunner

πŸŽ† Happy New Year, Commanders! πŸŽ‡ The Level 16 Sapper and Elite Stinger Gunner are here.

As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Sapper/Elite Stinger Gunners will feature improved stats and no increase in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there is an increase in cost, production time, and repair time.

The best part about it? No blueprints are required for upgrading. As long as you have TOC12 and the new building levels for your Academy and Barracks, you can upgrade away!

Elite AH-64 Apache Updates

As pre-announced in the patch notes 2 weeks ago, the Elite AH-64 Apache gets an update to its space requirements. Effective today: the space requirement increases from 70 to 160.

Please note that this is part of a helicopter unit tier rebalancing that also saw the Elite AH-1Zs space requirement drop from 200 to 70, and the Elite OH-58s from 160 to 115.

End of Season 16 Clan Tournament

From January 2nd – January 9th, 2020, rally your Clan and head to the regional map for your chance to be the strongest Clan of Season 16!
