Global Chat Will Be Removed on the Next Clash of Clans Update


June 2019 Clan Games

Hello Clashers! Today Supercell announced the Global Chat will be removed on the next Clash of Clans update. The use of the Global Chat has been declining for a while and it is not important as it used, but this is sad news for the game as the Global Chat still is the best way recruit new members to the clans and interact with other clashers.

Over the years there were many efforts from the Clash team to filter the Global Chat trying to transform it on a clean and healthy environment, but unfortunately it came to a point where it was no longer possible to be fixed. So they are removing it. For good.

To make recruitment easier without the Global Chat we will get an improved Clan recruitment tool, but we don't have any information of how this is going to work right now. Other Supercell games (Brawl Stars and Boom Beach) suggests clans (Teams / Task Forces) based on your stats and location, so we might get something similar on Clash of Clans.

This is the official statement from the Clash team:

We have some very important news we would like to share about the direction the team is taking with regards to social interaction in Clash of Clans.

In the next update, we are going to be removing the Global Chat channel from the game.

When we created the Global Chat channel, our goal was to create a central hub of social interaction that engages Clashers from around the world to interact with each other.

While this was a noble endeavor, unfortunately reality taught us a lesson. Over the years, we found ourselves putting no short amount of resources into policing Global chat with the help of dedicated Support and Anti-Fraud agents as well as implementing spam detection and trying different mechanics to shield players from offensive or inappropriate communications that have no place in Clash of Clans.

One of the main functions that Global Chat provides is a channel for Clans to find new recruits. This has been one of the main obstacles preventing the Clash team from removing Global Chat; without an improved Clan recruitment tool, Global Chat remained the primary method for players to find a new Clan outside of social media channels or the official forums. In the next update, we will be improving the Clan recruitment functionality, making it easier than ever for Clans to find new members and for players to find Clans that best suit their play style.

While we’re sad to see Global Chat go, we feel we can better dedicate the resources allocated to policing Global Chat towards improving the Clash of Clans experience for our players.
