    Why did people change their name to the same thing

    Hey guys, Iím curious after looking at last seasonís global leaderboard and seeing so many players by the same name and many players in a level 1 clan called the same. Iím assuming this is a funny little prank that the players decided to pull, quite amusing. Very impressive if itís the one account, I mean having 1 account in the top 200 global is amazing, but multiple, thatís awesome!

    It's not at all a 'funny little prank'. Do some searching (google is one's friend) I'd say...

    It could be a secret organisation that is planning on taking over CoC bit by bit👀, and they are now recruiting more and more people.





    I was being sarcastic.

    1(the mild, clean nose side) it just might be another alt of there main account.

    2( the sketchy side) it could be players just doing something funny.

    3(the you-will-get-banned side) they could be trying to screw up the legends leader board.

    the way i heard it, supercell does a massive ban spree at the end of each season-usually against the players in tier 3 that i mentioned before.

    Supercell never made an official statement that they do these bans afaik.

    Anyways there's a simple solution to this which Supercell has refused to implement time and again - hide player name and player's clan till the attack is over for every legend attack.

    I did a google search and can't find what is being implied. One thing, I don't like being confused and many accounts with identical names confuses me. It would especially be confusing if there are different users on the other side. Maybe it's because i don't understand the legends leader board yet...i just assumed the leaders boards are based on player tags and not on names.

    The implcation is that the person with the original account pays people to change their name to his/her. They also agree as to which account should be pushed into 1st place, etc.

    As someone already stated: "money matters."
