If you’re a fan of this MMO (Massive Multi-player Online) strategy game, then you know how frustrating it can be when one of your villages suddenly disappears, especially if you’ve sunk some real-world cash into fortifying said village. Nothing frustrates a gamer more than wasted progress. Luckily, there are ways you can get that village back. We’ll walk you through how to recover lost villages and how to avoid losing them again.

  2. Tap the Settings icon.

Not to worry, Supercell has you covered. Simply email then at [email protected] [1] and provide them with the following information:

Supercell may require additional information from you. If this is the case, they will communicate it to you via email. There is no guarantee that you will get your village back this way. If you’re not able to convince them that it was your village or if they aren’t able to locate the village due to a lack of identifying information, you could be out of luck.

Prevention is Better Than a Cure

Got your village back? Good. Now, don’t lose it again. Backup your village in one of two ways.

iOS (Game Center)

  1. Open Game Center.
  2. Log in with your Apple ID credentials.
  3. Your Clash of Clans account will automatically link with your device.

Recover the game from Game Center by going to Game Center and loading the correct village when prompted.

Android (Google Play)

  1. Open Clash of Clans.
  2. Go to In Game Settings.
  3. Locate the Google Play sign in.
  4. Tap Disconnected.
  5. Tap the sign in button and use your Google Play credentials.

Recover the game from Google Play by tapping on Google Play in your game settings and selecting the correct village.

Supercell Recommendation

Supercell recommends that users only have one village linked to their account. If you attempt to get more villages, you risk losing one or more of them. They also caution users who seek to use the email method to gain access to other people’s accounts and villages. Supercell promises that this will be met with severe disciplinary action.

What if you can’t get access to your village again? Well…looks like you’re starting over.
