I just switched my iPhone and had some small issues when getting my Clash of Clasn village back – that was mostly my own fault, because Supercell gave us absolutely great functionalities to handle device switching and always keeping your game progress as I found out searching the web a little bit.
Always keeping your progress
Thats simple, just link Clash of Clans with your Game Center account. If you have a new or additional device (iPad, iPod, whatever) you just have to sign in on this device with your Game Center account and start Clash of Clans. When starting the game yoour device will tell you that there was found an account and if you want to restore it. Obviously choose “yes”.
Simple like iOS – the only difference is that you should sign in wiwth your Google+ Account. All other things are like with iOS devices
Linking your devices
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Play through the tutorial on the new device and use link BEFORE reaching Town Hall level 4 and before making in app purchases. If you need further assistance or experience any issues with linking your devices, please contact player support via the in-app reporting feature in the in-game settings menu! You’ll find it under the Help & Settings option.
In order to transfer your village between and iOS and Android device, it needs to be connected to Game Center/Google+. You can verify the Game Center connection on iOS by logging into Game Center and opening the game from the Game Center’s ‘Games’ tab. For Android, open Clash of Clans and connect your village to Google+ in the in-game settings by clicking the Google+ sign in button.
Everything verified? To move your village between your devices follow these steps:
- Open Clash of Clans on both your Android and iOS devices (source device and target device)
- Open the in-game settings window on both devices
- Press the ‘Link a device’ button
- Select OLD DEVICE on the device you would like to move your village FROM
- Select NEW DEVICE on the device you would like to move your village TO
Select which type of device you want to link your village TO.
- STOP!!!! Before you proceed, please make sure you have played through the tutorial and not made a purchase before TH4. Read the VERY IMPORTANT NOTE located above.
- Use the device code provided on your OLD DEVICE and enter it on your NEW DEVICE. You have a 5 minute window of time before your code is invalid!
After you have successfully copied the village transfer code from one device to the other, your village will be on both devices
