To set up the story, a few months ago, my 9 year old son (who doesnt live with me unfortunately) started playing Clash Royale on his tablet during his summer vacations. I was never into it but since every weekend and week day that my job allows me to go and grab him for a fun weekend or cringy dinners where I force him to eat vegetables, there are those spare times in the couch or in bed where we play a few games. So, I started to play Clash Royale with him.
When I started playing he wasnt in a Clan so I started one and promoted him to Coleader. He was amazed on the power he had… to promote or demote anyone at will! Bwaaahhhh…. After a few days some people joined, then left, others joined and left, and so on…
This Xmas holydays my son resumed his playtime since I dont let him play during school time. We looked at the clan and nobody was playing… many members didnt contribute to the Clan Chest. We werent getting any decent rewards since only a few were actually contributing to the chest. I noticed he was sad that our Clan Chest never got to max reward and suggested he changed clan. He said no, that he liked our clan. After Xmas, I was at my work break and I checked the clan of a friend and they actually got the Clan Chest to Max and they were accepting new members. I tried to call my son but his mother didnt answer. So.. I left my clan, joined the new one, entered my son account and joined this new clan. And all was well… until later that day.
I didnt got to talk to him that day… his mother didnt had her cellphone on. Around 11pm I got a call from him, completly stressed out and sobbing…
Him: “Dad, I dont know what happened but someone got into my account and changed my clan. Im sorry Dad, I didnt mean to. It wasnt me. I would never leave your clan, you´re the best clan leader I know!”
Me: “OMG… son… it was me who changed it. I changed mine too. Nobody was contributing to it and you said we never got a full clan chest reward. I thought it would be better to go to a more active one.”
Him: *akward silence and low sobbing* “Dad… You are not the clan leader anymore… I wanted you to be the leader so I could help you building our clan… together!”
**disc scratch and freeze frame**
My hearth froze and broke into a million pieces. I calmed him down and hang up. After that, I created a new clan and invited a few friends…. the next morning I called him and sent him an invite to join our new clan. Even though we are only 5 members… He stills loves the fact that we are in the same clan and I am his leader.
TL:DR- Left clan that my son and I founded. Nobody contributed to the clan chest, so I changed clan and used my sons account to join another (better) clan. My son thought he was hacked and didnt want me to think he betrayed me by leaving the clan we created together. I got heartbroken, created a new clan and we are now slowly building our clan legacy together again.
EDIT: To everyone who wants to join the clan I just want to thank you all for the gesture. But you dont have to… this is a very casual clan. 🙂
I donate cards everytime I can but im not that great of a player. Its just fun for me and my little boy. Even after reading this you still want to join, here it is: **#8cupryy9**
