We can confirm that Clash of Clans is down for a maintenance break on May 17, 2016. This is for a number of reasons, one is to put a 1 Gem Boost in the game and also to prepare for the new CoC Friendly Challenge update.
As far as we’re aware, the Friendly Challenge isn’t going live today. But to get you ready for it, Supercell will give you 1 Gem Boost until it is ready for deployment.
Below is the confirmation of this from Supercell confirming the maintenance break for today, which should now be happening in your region.
Friendly Challenges are going to let clanmates attack one another for practice, competition, or just plain fun which is a really nice addition – we’ll explain more about this later today.
For now, can you confirm that you already have the 1 Gem Boost active on your account? Leave a message below if CoC is down for you right now.
