Clash of Clans Banned in Iran Over Claims It Promotes ‘Tribal Conflict’

Clash of Clans

Supercell’s hit freemium mobile title Clash of Clans has been banned by the Iranian government, over claims it promotes “violence” and “tribal conflict”.

The decision was announced earlier in the week by deputy attorney general Dr Abdolsamad Khoramabadi, who said that the “vast majority” of the Committee to Determine Instances of Criminal Content had supported the motion to block access to the MMO under Article 15 of the country’s Law of Computer Crimes.

2012 report suggested that up to 27 percent of all websites were blocked in Iran; the number is now expected to be significantly higher.

Clash of Clans has been a huge commercial success for its Finnish developer, with a recent report suggesting the title generates more than $1.5 million in revenue per day.
