Clash of Clans Shield

Village Guard

Village Guard is a new “short-term way to prevent attacks on your village while your shield is down.” With the new shield system, 30% destruction is the lowest threshold to get a shield; however, the automatic 15-minute Village Guard period will activate after attacks that cause less than the 30% destruction required as to give shieldless defenders a chance to rearm traps. reload defenses, and request defending troops. Here are the specific details:

  • While Village Guard is active, your village acts as if you are online, even if you close the game or get disconnected

  • Players can freely attack through Village Guard with no penalty

  • Free Village Guard time activates automatically when shields expire, from 15 minutes to 3 hours long based on League

  • 2 hours of extra Village Guard can be bought for 10 gems every day in the shop, when your shield is down (23 hour cooldown)

  • Active Village Guard can be dismissed at any time

  • Buying a Shield from the Shop will dismiss active Village Guard

In the end, Village Guard should help with players who return a few minutes after their shield expires, as well as top-level players suffering from unintentional disconnect due to inactivity.

Personal Break

In addition to Village Guard, Personal Break will place a time limit on how long you can stay online without a shield until the game decides it’s time for you to defend. At that point, you’ll be kicked offline for a few minutes to allow attackers a chance to attack you. The Personal Break system will also be undergoing some changes, detailed below:

  • A player is forced offline for 6 minutes after 3 hours of cumulative online time (or Village Guard time) without shield

  • This Personal Break 3-hour limit is only reset after getting a shield, or in some special cases covered below

  • Buying the 2-hour Village Guard from the Shop will extend a player's current Personal Break 3-hour limit by 2 hours

  • The Personal Break 3-hour limit for online players is paused during server maintenance, but not reset

Village Guard and Personal Break Working Together

Village Guard will be granted for free to plays in two instances:

After a shield expires to prevent being attacked immediately. The amount of Village Guard awarded is based on your League:

  • Champion I League players and below get a free 15-minute Village Guard when their shield expires

  • Titan III League players get a free 1-hour Village Guard when their shield expires

  • Titan II League players get a free 2-hour Village Guard when their shield expires

  • Titan I and Legend League players get a free 3-hour Village Guard when their shield expires

Shield Guard will extend the Personal Break 3-hour limit by 15 minutes, but will not reset it unless the Mercy Rule (explained below) kicks in.

  • Every defense that results in a shield will reset the defender's Personal Break 3-hour limit

  • Every defense that DOESN’T result in a shield will instead result in a 15-minute extension of the defender's Personal Break 3-hour limit and Village Guard time

  • Every 6-minute Personal Break kickout period that doesn't result in ANY defense will also result in a 15-minute extension of the defender's Personal Break 3-hour limit and Village Guard time

  • "Mercy Rule" - The 3rd consecutive 15-minute extension will instead fully reset the Personal Break 3-hour limit and trigger the automatic Village Guard based on League

  • If an offline player is not attacked for 3 hours, their Personal Break 3-hour limit is reset, though no Village Guard is awarded
