The different types of being banned in Clash of Clans
When we’re talking banned we have to make a difference – you can get banned from Global Chat, temporarily banned from the game and permanent banned.

Banned from Global Chat – what to do?
I think if you sometimes actually write something in the global Chat you probably have been banned from the global chat once. The problem is that the curse word filter from Supercell is still just not working anywhere near properly as it doesn’t recognize languages. You can type in normal words that get recognized as abusive in some sub-somalian dialect and the automatism will ban you after a few times. Also if 7 people report you might also get banned from the global Chat – and what I’ve seen there are a lot of kiddies around doing nothing else than just randomly reporting.

In fact being banned from global Chat isn’t that big of deal because you simply can’t be there without getting brain damaged after a couple of minutes. Just sit it out but be careful – if those banns add up you might get a ban from the game but you only have to afraid of this if actually curse in the global Chat.

Temporary banned from Clash of Clans
There are different things that will get you this one so I have put here the most popular reasons so please avoid them to not get banned for life (coming later in the post).

Banned for abusive layout
Don’t make “funny” layouts in the game! Wall drawing can be fun but mind that children and also people of other cultures and religions are playing the game – even if you could laugh about a joke related to your culture or religion doesn’t mean they also have to live the same fun. This is something I call respect and having something in this way written with Walls or anything can get you a couple of days banned to think about it.

What to do if you just received this ban? Log in after your banned period is over and immediately DELETE the design. Just changing it to not active isn’t enough and could get you banned for a week!

Banned for no reason, I mean Clan Description
Having a good Clan Descriptionis important but many Clashers claiming they got banned for no reason are Co-Leader or Leader of a Clan and someone else put something into the description that is not appropriate. Supercell can’t track which one of you did it so everyone who has the power to gets banned. This is quite frustrating if this happens during a Clan War as you might imagine.

What to do? You’ll have to have a talk with your clan friends. Either find out who did it and remove his power or if you’re not the Leader think about getting demoted to Elder to not get into trouble for some else’s misbehavior.

Multi Accounts and Clashing via Mac or PC
I know you don’t like to hear it but in the TOS it’s clearly stated that you are not allowed to only have 1 account per device. Having multiple accounts might result in getting banned – even I don’t know how strict Supercell executes this so far you have to be aware you’re doing something not allowed.

Also using tools to play Clash of Clans on your PC or Macbook are not allowed and might result in getting banned. You have to know yourself if this is worth it but in the end it doesn’t really make fun on those devices anyway, am I right?

Third party cheap Gem provider or hacking tools
Buying an account, using third party Gemsor other hacking tools that will do whatever (keeping you online, farming, etc.) are getting hunted down more and more. I can’t recommend you something else than stop using it.

What to do if you got banned
There are three kind of banned player – the ones who are innocent, the ones who didn’t read the rules and the ones who exactly know what they did. In any case you can contact support via mail with your details but don’t expect them to answer quickly and to remove the ban.

When you got banned for life you have done quite serious violations to the Terms of Service and please note that making a new account is no fresh start in Clash of Clans. If Supercell finds out about you they will instantly get your new account where your old one is.
