1) Why is my global chat showing the wrong language?
The language of both the global and local chat is influenced by the location of your first village. Either the village was made when you were overseas, or people of different languages are playing in the same server.
2) How many stars do I need to win a battle?
You only need one star, which is received after wrecking the town hall or destroying half the village. But it’s better to get three stars by destroying your opponent’s entire village.
3) Why does the game lose connection often?
Clash of Clans is an online game, which means that your internet connection should be fast and stable. But if you’re playing it while you’re out on the road, your wifi or mobile data coverage can fluctuate and lead to game disconnections.
