Change Internet Source
In most cases, this error is caused by internet problem, either due to slow loading speed or low coverage. Hence, you can change your internet source (by connecting to a new Wi-Fi network or a different mobile network) and see if the issue is resolved.
If the connection error lingers, the problem is probably not from your internet network or ISP. Hence, you can try the next fix.
Clear Clash of Clans’ Cache
You can navigate to your smartphone’s application manager and clear the cache of the game to free up space. This could fix the error, provided the connection error was not originally caused by your internet network. Also try and restart your phone after clearing the cache.
