The removal of Clash of Clans global chat has come as a surprise to many fans as it was a staple feature in Clan recruitment and general chat. It gave Clash of Clans a more social platform for many players. It allowed them to relax and enjoy communicating with others while waiting for a building to finish construction, or troops to be trained. Finding Clans was made easier, and especially finding a particular clan that best suited you.
What happens now?
The question that is on everyone’s mind now is: What happens now? Supercell’s answer to this was:
What will this next update include? Can we expect an in-depth, clan searcher, with lots of unique variables? Or perhaps a link to an external site or platform, where clan recruitment is dealt with?
Most important things for the replacement of Clash of Clans global chat
1. Keeping the social side of Clash of Clans alive
This mainly refers to the idea that the removal of the global chat function could also remove life from the game. Clash of Clans global chat used to tie the players inside the game (leaving the toxicity aside).
2. Creating a useful function
When this new update goes live, players need a tool that actually helps and provides an option to search and locate clans. If executed correctly, a clan finder assistant could replace many functions that the official forums provide.
3. Not replicating the global chat
It would be easy for Supercell to narrow down the new function to a series of smaller chat rooms, organised by clan types (War frequency etc.). This isn’t what the player base needs. They need a forum-like structure, with in-depth search-ability, and a clear and open format.
