We're Removing the Clan Chest - Find out Why!
We just wanted to give you a heads up about our plans for the Clan Chest, so it doesn't take you by surprise when the update arrives.
As you may have guessed from the title, we're removing the Clan Chest from Clash Royale in the next update. However, all of the rewards that the Clan Chest gives will be pumped into another feature.
We built the new feature in a way that allows its rewards to grow bigger. Which means you'll initially see less rewards, but through playing well and actively, you can get a lot more than what the biggest Clan Chest offered.
Before we add more features to the game, we always like to sanity check our current feature list to make sure everything is still as good as it should be. We know we can't simply keep adding and adding, because the UI alone will become cluttered at some point, so we like to trim back when/where it makes sense to do so, while we add new and better features to replace or improve upon what we're removing.
With the Clan Chest specifically, we feel like it's become less cool than it was originally, simply due to it being in the game for a while now and perhaps seeing some "feature fatigue." We think Clan Chests are completed more passively nowadays, compared to them being more of an actual event, as they were initially.
We know the Clan Chest provides a good way to monitor activity levels within your Clan and see who's still kicking around. That information is really important to running a successful Clan, so we're making sure this kind of "activity check" is still possible without the Clan Chest - stay tuned for that!
