    ✔ Personal breaks enforced (What does this mean?)

    The new update states:
    "✔ Personal breaks enforced for players who stay continuously in-game for very long periods of time"

    Do any players or mods know what the time frame on this new rule is? How long can a player play for? and How long is the "break"?

    Apologies if this has already been asked.

    It means that if you have been online for "x" amount of time, the game will log you out and you will have to re-open the app.

    This is why Vizia is now losing trophies. Or at least, so it seems.
    If you haven't read the rules, read them here.
    If you have an idea, make sure it is original by reading this.

    I am curious to know what "x" amount of time will be. Also will we get a warning message "Its time for your break". And is the restart instant or does the game lock you out for a period of time?

    Seems to me like nobody will know for a while.

    I doubt Supercell wants anybody to know what "x" amount of time is, because then people could alter their schedule and get around it. I wouldn't be surprised if "x" is a randomized number from (??)-(??).

    Personal Break

    How long do you have to be on before you are logged off? And, how long are you locked out of the game before being allowed back on?

    from texts.csv from unzipping the game on my PC:

    The phrases used are:

    TID_ERROR_POP_UP_PERSONAL_BREAK_TITLE : Take a break
    TID_ERROR_POP_UP_PERSONAL_BREAK : You have been playing for too long and your villagers need to rest for a few minutes.
    TID_ERROR_POP_UP_PERSONAL_BREAK_BUTTON : Reload

    Haven't seen anything about how long. Hopefully a few hours at least.
    Classic Joke:
    Patient:
    Doctor, it hurts when I do THIS! Doctor: Well, don't do that!
    Clash of Clans version:
    Player:
    It hurts when I play in Champion. Logic: Well, don't do that!

    Yes, it's probably irregular to make it harder to find a loop hole.

    I've got to stop saying "How stupid can you be?" Some people are starting to think it's a challenge!

    And to answer to your questions:
    - Loot percentage hasn't been changed
    - You can play for 8 hours, then you have to charge your potato (Personal break was introduced due to some high level players using questionable methods to stay online all the time, and they never got attacked. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this brings to some enthusiastic human players, but I hope you can enjoy the break too. Maybe by coming to the forums and having fun with your fellow Clashers )

    Just to reiterate, the breaks will have to be randomized otherwise players will find workarounds.
