## Notes
Before we get to the actual information:

– [VIDEO] This tag means it links directly to a YouTube video. I wanted this to be a *mostly* Reddit-based guide so I tried to limit how many YouTube videos I linked to. Obviously there’s a ton of YouTube content and people are likely to already know their favorite content creators.

– [OLD] This tag means it links to something that is 4+ years old. I generally tried to refrain from linking to anything 4+ years old. However, there were some older guides that still looked mostly correct. I put [OLD] in front of these older guides so that you know the information should be mostly correct but just be aware of out of date info.

#Account Security/Protection
###How do I recover my old/banned/stolen account?
– [Steps to Recovery](https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/kelt9r/guide_steps_to_recovering_a_lost_or_banned_account/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)

###What if I don’t know the recovery questions?
– DO NOT GUESS. You risk being banned for “account phishing”. Currently, a phishing ban seems to be a month long for the first offense. Do NOT use a friend’s account to contact support for an account recovery (even if legitimate). They will still ban the account for phishing.

###How do I protect my account from being phished/stolen?

– [Online support](https://supercell.com/en/support/)
– [Directly message them online](https://help.supercellsupport.com/clash-of-clans/en/articles/contact-form.html)

###Why do people blur out their gems? Do I need to blur out my gems to protect my account?
– People block out their gems because it was at some point [it was a potential recovery question](https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/78jdm0/misc_block_your_gems_in_a_screen_shot/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf). Knowing someone’s gem amount alone isn’t enough info to steal an account. However, some people play the “better same than sorry” attitude and block it out anyways.

#Multiplayer
###When does the Season reset?
– [Find the exact date here](https://www.clash.ninja/guides/when-are-the-next-ingame-events)

###How do trophies work? Why did I lose so many/few trophies from an attack?
– [Guide to how the Trophy System works](https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/mwb7sx/guide_to_how_the_multiplayer_trophy_system_works/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)

### How do shields work?
– [Shields and Village Guard](https://www.clash.ninja/guides/what-are-shields-and-guard)

###How does Legend League work?
– [Legend League System explained](https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/c04zde/misc_new_legend_league_system_explained_with/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)

### How can I get a Legend League badge on my profile?
– As long as you finish above 5000 trophies at the end of the season, you will earn the Legend League badge. You do not have to sign up for Legend League for this to work. For example, if you are at 4990 trophies and earn +15 on your next attack, you will earn the Legends badge without signing up for it.

### Why is it taking so long to find a base to attack?
– During times when the Clash of Clans player base is more active and spending more time online (before/after a major update or during Clan Games usually), the game can struggle to find bases that aren’t protected by a shield.
– You might be too high/low in trophies compared to similar TH levels. The game tries to search for a base that is not too easy or hard for you to attack, but if you all the bases or too hard/easy then it will take longer to find an appropriate base.

###Why are people dropping 1 troop and quitting against me?
– Many players intentionally lower their trophies to stay in low leagues because there is often better loot and weaker bases.

### How can I complete the Unbreakable Achievement?
– [Guide to completing Unbreakable Achievement](https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/nym2mc/a_guide_to_completing_the_unbreakable_achievement/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)
