[xyz-ihs snippet=”middle”]
There will be no one looking this post without prior knowledge about this game. But as this article completely sticks to the game, I hope a little introduction will not be bad. Clash of Clans is one of the most popular aggressive strategy game ever seen in Play Store. If some one plays it for a week, it is too difficult to uninstall from his device as well as from his mind. The game worth 50 MB in size where we are asked to build a village and attack other villagers to loot their gold and elixir. Two or more member can join together and send and receive troops and participate in wars that longs for 2 day.
Timely updates made this game more user friendly and thus the game enlarges with millions of villages. With in 2 years the game covered with players from 120 different countries. While we are online in clash of clans, others can’t attack us. No one can attack until the shield time get over.
Unfortunately I am in an awesome clan with 45 active members. We haven’t lost last 10 wars. All people are chatting well, donating well, attacking well, sharing tips well. We also chat through our private whatsapp group. We hope that kind of conversations can help in active war fighting. once our members had discussed about some problem while using the game. Most of them pointed that they want to know why Client and server out of Sync messages is showing repeatedly.  Many ask support from Supercell but never get replied. That’s why we started finding the solution for this error message.
client and server out of sync

Reason behind “Client and server out of Sync” – this is what we found

One and only one  issue is the Internet Problem

From this error message itself, it is clear that the client [our device] and the main server can’t get sync. All of us know that the game is instant game and what we do get instantly updated to the main server. So that we could start from where we stop. Consider the situation that we are going for an attack. From the starting moment itself, we released all our troops. But after a few seconds, our Internet connection disabled. What will happen? Whether the game stops or not? A big NO. If our troop releasing had figured out in the main servers, the remaining game will continue until the time get over or till our whole troops get destroyed. It is because our game is continues playing in its server.
This game is complete client-server game. So that you must establish unbreakable synchronous communication with your device and the servers. If there a lagging occur, there may not be an re establishment. If this happens while you are playing, you may suppose continue in your device. But after the game is over and you score a 3 stars, this may not get updated on the servers and you may loose the game.
I don’t think that there will be any other reason for this issue. You can try the below solutions to overcome this problem.

#1 Take a look on your Internet Connection
This is what to advice for Asian guyz especially from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc. Because they are getting cheap and comparatively poor Internet connection. They not receive Connections like how people getting in gulf, American and European countries. Internet Speed may comparatively slow and may slower that the sync speed of client and server. Game in the servers get executed and game of client may get slower due to bad Internet connection. Also make sure that you are receiving continues Internet access from your providers.

#2 Check the distance from your WiFi
If you are playing this game from the end point of your WiFi, there will be some connection and Internet accessing problems. This also could result in Client and Server out of sync issue. Once I received 5 Continues client and server out of sync issue while playing at a long distance from Wi-Fi

#3 Messing up with Virtual Private Networks and Proxies
Are you using any VPN or under some Network proxies? VPN probably blocks if it is free service. Check out VPN also. There may be issues if you are playing this game under college WiFi. Same time there will be hundreds of other connection and proxies. this may reduce your Internet speed show network error.
