Clash of Clans, the popular strategy mobile game, received a new update yesterday (30 April) from its developer Supercell that added several new features and tweaks to the game.

The update included a new anti-air defense system – The Air Sweeper -- that will push back the enemy air attacks, slowing down their progress. The update also includes the ability to bookmark a clan, army preview, and many more.

One of the most important parts of the update is the Air Sweeper that is tasked with halting enemy air attacks. However, fans were not excited with the new air-defense unit and have taken to Facebook to show their disapproval of the new update.

Facebook user, Alvin Lim Voon Chune posted: "air sweeper is if you agree," which went on to receive nearly 5,968 Facebook 'Likes.'

"This is THE most stupidest update, why not make another defense to piss off all your fans? (insert middle finger here)," said another user. Others called it "just so lame".

Some fans have commented that the new Air Sweeper blows away the balloon traps that have been put up.

However there were  a few comments that supported the new update. "Nice air sweeper defense, forced all troops back my xbow on fire," wrote a fan, while another added, "Air sweeper is awesome."

Another Facebook user, Kingcraft Plays, had a piece of advice for those who did not like the new air defense unit. "You guys need to quit complaining. "Air attacks aren't dead they just had to nerf them so it actually requires skill to 3 star with them. Besides, the air sweeper only has 1/8-1/4 of a circle that it can shoot in. Modify your attack strats and get over it," he said. Another user demanded Supercell to "Bring back elixir wall upgrade."

Others had some suggestions for the next update too. "Please make an update that walls don't cost so much gold. The upgrade given with the cost available isn't balancing."

"Make air sweeper hidden... so that you will not know the direction where it will attack you," added another. 

Errors in the Update?

Some players have reportedly had issues downloading the new update, but it happened to be a simple issue of not having enough space in the mobile phones or tablets.
