"Clans are an optional feature in Clash of Clans, but it is strongly recommended that every player should join a Clan. Collaboration is a very important and helpful aspect of this game."

Invalid Clan Names

If you're trying to create a Clan but the game tells you its name is invalid, you must try something else. The one you attempted either began with, or contained a special character (or emoji), or contained a string of characters black-listed in one of the many languages Clash of Clans supports.

Inactive Clan Leader

When a Clan Leader hasn't logged into Clash of Clans for 90 days, the game selects a new Leader automatically.

Members, as well as the Leader, are notified throughout the rotation process via messages in the game.

  • 60 days of inactivity:
    • An in-game message is sent to the entire Clan, informing that the highest-ranking and longest-serving active member will be the new Leader.
  • 74 days of inactivity:
    • A screen notification is sent to the Leader.
  • 83 days of inactivity:
    • A second screen notification is sent to the Leader.
    • A second in-game message is sent to the entire Clan.
    90 days of inactivity
    • The new Leader is appointed.
