Increasingly popular gamers platform to add tools for Clash Royale and Clash of Clansp>
Clanplay, the new community platform for mobile gamers, to launch features supporting two of the world's most popular games: Supercell's Clash Royale and Clash of Clans.
Feature set for Clash Royale include a constantly updating list of free-of-charge tournaments - a very helpful tool for all Clashers as in-game tournaments search is hard to navigate; and the Clash Royale Chest Prophet that predicts the chest to be awarded for winning the next battle. Clash of Clans' new features include a private chat room for clans that synchronizes with the game’s dynamic players list and the War Caller, an operative tool that enables real-time managing of clan wars.
The new features, which were immediately embraced by players all over the world, express Clanplay's vision; to create a gamer-centric community that provides an equipped communication solution, paired with tailored tools to enhance their gaming experience. The platform is seeing tremendous growth with thousands of users joining every day.
"As gamers ourselves, our main goal is to provide great features for other gamers who enjoy these games, just like we do," says Leonard Frankel, CEO and Co-Founder. "We are all huge fans of Supercell's games, we play them all the time and at some point, we realized there are tools that could improve our gameplay and help us collaborate better. We developed them off the official Clash API and released them recently; it became immediately clear that other players love them too! You can expect a lot more features and a lot more games added in the near future."
The platform provides an innovative alternative for the games’ basic and limited chat function. It enables various capabilities such as automatic record of all your clan members’ aliases and ranks as contacts, and keeps it updated in real time. By linking their game accounts, players can easily manage all of their groups centrally from ClanPlay, keep track of their clan's progress, synchronize & strategize, draw and comment on images, call opponents in war, and even keep in touch with friends that have moved to another clan.
Clanplay was founded a year ago by executives from Israeli game companies; Leonard Frankel served as VP of Business Development at Plarium that was recently acquired for $500M, and Asaf Semo, formerly leading technology at Dragonplay and Oberon. The team got a major reinforcement with Etya Geller joining as VP Product in September. Etay previously lead the product for Gigya (acquired M350$) and Minute Media. The startup is backed by leading members of the Games Industry and other angle investors.
