Clash of Clans Nasty Internet Usage

 

 

Cordova, TN; November 2, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is warning the millions upon millions of members within Family Friendly Gaming Universe. You need to be aware of a potentional problem related to Clash of Clans. It is also possible there are other repeat pay to play apps with the same problem as Clash of Clans. What is this issue? What is this problem? A huge drain on your Internet usage. Why is that a problem? Because many ISPs are putting a ceiling on families. If you go over that ceiling then you have to pay massive fines, or your Internet is just turned off for the rest of the month. Be careful, and watchful of any games that have any kind of online game play. Your bandwidth can be drained quickly.

Family Friendly Gaming had a problem in October of 2015. Our bandwidth was pegged. In fact as it got later in the month the possibility of having to pay an Internet fine was becoming a reality. We turned down download codes for a whole slew of games because we did not have the bandwidth to download them. The normal thoughts of: “this is why physical copies are better, and needed,” came up over and over again. We stopped Steam from auto-downloading updates to games. We disconnected the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, and Wii U. We also turned off their auto-updating processes. There was still no change. In fact things were getting worse. Finally we put all iPads and all iPhone in Airplane mode. We had to get this problem solved fast.

One of the kids noticed they could no longer play Clash of Clans. Both of our children played that game all of the time, especially on the week of Fall Break (where they had a week off of school). We asked them to stop playing the game Clash of Clans, so we could see if that was the massive Internet drain. Guess what? It was. A few days after they stopped playing, things turned around. By the end of the month we avoided an Internet fine, and we actually had a little bit of a cushion. Family Friendly Gaming now has a ban on Clash of Clans because it is so damaging. Why can’t game makers give families offline modes? Why are they such a drain on severely limited resources? It is a shame that Supercell took the route of causing harm and damage to the Internet usage of families. Avoid Clash of Clans and games like it.


God bless,
