Clash of Clans December Update: What We Know So Far



Session timers and the Personal Break

Session timers and the Personal Break

The developers also mentioned there will be new session timers and a "personal break" whatever that means. This will likely be a move to reduce cheaters who use a PC to always stay online. You've tried to attack someone in a revenge and get the notorious "this player is currently online" and it never goes away.

This is people that keep the game on for 6-8 hours at a time. Either by keeping their device on, or using cheats on a PC or desktop computer.

Of course a session timer won't limit how much we can play, because ultimately the developers want us playing as much as possible, and spending money on gems.

However, there was also mention of the "Personal break". Everyone has a life, and Clash of Clans requires a LOT of attention. If you don't get on multiple times a day the game is no fun. People steal all your gold and elixir, updates are impossible, and people give up. Not to mention going on a vacation leaves a base wide-open for a weekend for people to raid, and owners to be left helpless.

I'm hearing there will be some sort of system where the more you play, the more time for a "personal break" gamers will get. Then, if they need to take some personal time away from the game, go on vacation, or get busy in life, they can use that break (like a SHIELD) to protect their village and money. This could also tie into the village guard concept mentioned above.

Yes, this is a lot. The developers need to make sure there are still enough bases to find, attack, and raid, without making it no fun for at the same time. It's a hard balance, and there's a lot going on here, which is why there's such a big delay in this release.

As long as personal breaks can't be taken whenever, the basics of the game and raiding in fights shouldn't change too much. These comments have a lot of people concerned, but don't worry, the game will still be fun for everyone. Supercell is one of the most successful game developers for a reason, and they know what they're doing.

    What a bunch of clickbait crap. Nice stretching and padding this stupid article into 7 pages of advertising. You keep saying the same thing, just wording it differently. Very little info here.

    iv’e been reading other articles on a vast array of sites for this up coming sneak peak and i found this article to have been the best written. other articles have felt like a copy paste job but at least this person took the time to accually write their own speculations and opinions into the so far disclosed facts. the writer accually conveys a feeling that they have played this game and over all conveys to me a feeling that the writer accually cared enough to do a overall great article.

    Interesting as long as it doesn’t take away the enjoyment factor of the game or over complicate things.

    Seems like its gonna be more geared towards new players. Im a high lvl th10 and dont see any benefit to the new shield overhaul at all. Its going to create alot more trophy pushers which in turn will mean i get hit for 300-400k every raid and have no easy way of attaining a shield. I hope supercell knows what theyre doing or youre going to have alot of long termers dropping out.
