Clash Of Clans Banned In Iran Due To Psychological Issues
Clash of Clans is among those mobile games of today that are highly celebrated across the world. Players, regardless of race or country, all come together to clash and showcase their talents. Apparently though, the government of Iran has decided to put some restrictions to whoever plays Supercell's hit title.
According to BBC, a government committee from the aforementioned country decided to ban Clash of Clans for psychological reasons. Based on a study, the entity found out that the game encourages unacceptable outcomes such as tribal conflict and violence, among others. Moreover, the app is believed to affect a person's relationship with his/her family.
The governing body rules that Clash of Clans, in one way or another, changes a person's view towards life. It might not be noticeable at first, but the change becomes more apparent in the long run. For instance, teenagers who are addicted to the mobile game can portray unpleasant behavior or whatnot. This is most especially to how they relate with their respective families and/or friends.
In a statistical study, nearly 64% of players of Clash of Clans players hail from Iran. Obviously, the ban implemented by the country's government could affect Supercell's sales or revenue significantly. The decision to do so was made official across the nation on the 27th of December this year.
As a result to this ruling, a good number of Clash of Clans Iran players are reportedly having issues accessing the game. Of course, fans are certainly not happy with it. There are those, however, who suggest that age restriction should've been implemented instead. But, for the time being, this should affect all players in the country.
It's worth noting that Clash of Clans isn't the first game to receive such restriction from Iran. Sometime in August, Pokemon GO from Niantic was also cut off. This is due to the game's location-based feature, which could infiltrate privacy or result to injuries (and even death).
