Today, Supercell has introduced another new feature of the upcoming update – Village Guard. The new Village Guard feature is an impressive short-term way to prevent attackers from raiding your village while it isn’t shielded.
Basically your village will have the Village Guard after the Shield expires or after a weak raid (overall damage <30%) so you will have enough time to ream your traps. Unlike the new Shield, you can attack when having Village Guard without getting penalty (the new Shield costs you a decent amount of shield time each attack).
The Village Guard time after a shield expires depends on your League:
= free 15-minute Village Guard when the shield expires.
= free 30-minute Village Guard when the shield expires.
Titan III = free 1-hour Village Guard when the shield expires.
Titan II = free 2-hour Village Guard when the shield expires.
Titan I and = free 3-hour Village Guard when the shield expires.

New Personal Break System
Another small change in this new update is about Personal Break: After 3 hour online (including Village Guard time) without having a shield, you will get kicked off for about 6 minutes. This change makes sure every player in game defends regularly.
