Lead your Clan to Victory

Today, a small share from me and RaptorJones will give you lots of ideas in order to lead your Clan to victory, to more Wars Wins!

Lead your Clan to Victory

The core players in my Clan have been playing Clash of Clans together for nearly 3 years and our Clan is about 2 years old now and currently at level 8 with the 120 wins streak (the win ratio is about 85%). It can be called a solid War Clan now but it wasn’t that good before. Like every other Clan at the beginning, it took us months to find out what could make us successful at Clan Wars. Back in early 2014, we though that the best way to win any Clan Wars was using Dragons, obviously we lost dozens of Wars.

Of course we are not the best Clan and you don’t need to follow the guidelines below but I hope they somehow can help you manage your Clan.

Know your Clan Members

Definitely this is the most critical factor. Your Clan just can’t be successful at Clan Wars If you (Leader, Co-Leaders and Elders) don’t know everyone in your Clan (their limitations and attacking abilities).

Your goal at War is to get as many 3 star wins as possible in the first attack wave, right? Sometimes, attacking the mirror is not the best choice. In Clan Wars, our top members usually take 2 of the consistent top enemy bases and the rest of our Clan just need to attack down. Since we used this strategy, our war win % has been skyrocketed a lot.

For example:

Clan War Plan

Most members of your Clan can easily get the 3 star win since they are attacking down. As a result, your Clan significantly reduce the amount of targets you need to attack again. If you follow this strategy, you will not have too many mid and bot bases to attack again after the first attack wave.

If you know your members well, you can easily control the second wave of attack by assigning members. Players should attack the hardest target they can hit for a 3 star win.

Using a Messaging App

Obviously lost of Clans out there are doing this to easily handle the communications. The in-game chat is abysmal, you just can’t understand anything after going offline for a while, and of course we just can’t stay in game anytime. It can be Facebook Message, Whatsapp, LINE, Skype, kik,… or some other ones.

By using the 3rd party messaging app, you can send pictures with notes and directions or even videos to help your members figure out how to attack easier. Also, your Clan should have a separate chat group  for new players (TH7 and below), where you can share and discuss basic strategies. Having a separate chat group for Co-Leaders and top players is also very necessary. It’s the place where you can discuss about who to include in the next War, who should attack the hardest targets and who should do the cleaning job.

To be honest, most of the time, we just chat about off-topic on the chat group LOL.

Clan War Win Streak

Nice win streak from Snakes Inc.

Search for the next War properly

What bracket (10 vs 10; 15 vs 15; 20 vs 20 or 50 vs 50) is the best for your Clan? If there area 23 green players, you should talk within the officier within the group chat and decide who should sit out in the next War. If there are 17-18 green villages, use a couple of alternative accounts at the bottom and start searching for Clan Wars.

Don’t include any TH9/10 players, who are upgrading their Archer Queens, in the upcoming War. We still can do decent attack without the King, but the Queen is necessary. Attacking without Archer Queen is an immediate impact on your War results. Also, don’t include any badly rushed players into Clan Wars otherwise they will affect your Clan weight a lot.

War Mismatch is also one of the most bothersome feelings in game. I just want to give up whenever my TH9 War Clan get matched up with a TH10 War Clan. I have posted a small trick about how to avoid this last week, you can take a look at here.

Everyone needs to be a Team Player

  • Creating a Clan culture is necessary, which help everybody in your Clan get motivated by the growth of your Clan, not by their own bases.
  • Selfishness in Clan Wars is unforgivable. I really hate it when someone doesn’t listen to other members, prefer to attack a higher target for the win bonus rather than clean up a lower target. We just lost the War last week because our #6 attacked their #3 for the loot bonus instead of hitting #12 for the extra star. Just ended up by losing 1 star…

How are you doing to lead your Clan to victory? Don’t hesitate to share your opinions guys!

      ~CLASH ON

    • Indranil Chowdhury

      Sorry mate ur dark troops were just lvl1 which isnt good for a th9. So i didn’t take u in war. You can alaways come back when ur troops are good. And that maybe the reason many clans dont let u in.

  • Krazynewf

    Yup I agree with this post completely,,,our clan went through a slump recently,,, we never really were assigning who to attack,,, we got into the horrible habit of our middle to low players always attacking mirrors early in war,,, we were getting off to horrible starts with too many 2 star attacks in the first wave,,,then not cleaning up properly,,, so I bit the bullet and started sitting people and making a rule that first wave attacks go 2 spots lower than mirror for the middle to low of the pack,,, our top guys usually wait to clean up and now we’re not wasting nearly as many attacks on lower cleanups,,,

    It sucks being the bad guy and giving people grief for attacking too high early or being selfish,,, but 1 or 2 members can ruin it for the rest of the clan,,, getting to the point where if sitting them doesn’t help,, I’ll have to kick unfortunately,,, but it’s for the greater good I guess,,, plus we have a few rushed TH’s that unfortunately I need to deal with…

    It’s not easy being a leader or Co but you got to do it for everyone else sometimes

    Cheers ?

    Ps 120 winning streak and 85% win rate is amazing,,, jealous lol

    • Will Potter

      LOL. Thank you Krazynewf!

      Personally, I’d rather be Elder/member than Co-Leader/Leader because I don’t have to do anything… LOL

      • Arrow

        Im looking for a clan.. Can I join yours Will?

        Or Krazynewf?

  • Indranil Chowdhury

    I agree that mirror shouldn’t alaways be atkd. Many clans force their players to do mirror in first atk but that’s not the way in case of ours. We sent a vivid war plan before any war, specially for lower players to follow. War plan is necessary for any clan don’t just give mirror atks. Anyways good article.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you Indranil!

  • Sanchit

    Will, do u even play COC, if yes, then can u plz tell me ur TH lvl nd in which clan u r in nd wats ur Account name??

    • Diane Acton (Buckner)

      My clan is level 7. AON is the name I posted a picture window below yesterday

  • sandeep rana
  • adit

    my ex-clan used this strategy where our no1 attacks their no1 and 2, and our no2 attacks their no 3 and 4.
    the disadvantage of this strategy is there is no back up for top players.
    you know, sometimes we have a bad day and cannot attack properly.
    or maybe because we are disconnected while attacking.
    I suggest to make some back up just like:
    our no 1 and 2 attack their no 1, 2 and 3. our no 3 and 4 attack their no 4, 5 and 6.
    this way, we can reserve 1 attack for back up.
    if top players doing good by 3 starring their match, we can use this back up for attacking middle or low opponent.

    Anyone plz send a th 7 war base

  • AJ Brown

    Here’s my profile and base. Any tips or suggestions?

  • Edan Hilario’us Other Side

    for me, the most important thing is all of your clan members is very active in war.. and you as a leader know the capability of ur members in getting 3stars or how to attack…
    normally, my members that are not good in attacking, i just ask them to attack first. then all of our “good” attackers will just go for clearing.. im just assigning 1by1 where to attack. im not into mirroring or +1/+2/+3 strategy attck… that’s one of my strat in CW.. i’ll juz share my other strat soon if i have time… 🙂
    so far, we got 185 win, 15 lose (because of mismatch.hehe), and 1 draw…
    Clan Name: COC Killers.. for short COCKS! 😀

  • Dario Macias

    I could really and SERIOUSLY use some help in my clan! My clan is lvl 3 right now, almost lvl 4, but we have A LOT of losses and more wins, and after reading this blog about how to help my clan in wars, I learned a lot, but I could really use the help of fellow clashers who are active. Please help me out and join, and when you do request to join, please say that “I am interested in helping you guys out, notified from cocland!” This way I know who I am getting and from where! Anyways, I look forward to meeting some of you clashers, and if I can get some other tips for my clan, it would be really helpful also! Thanks and CLASH ON! ✌?????

  • pranav

    outside of clan wars you could talk about feeders, types of clans(hardcore, farming, casual), recruiting and leveling up. (iOS)

  • binayak

    my clan is running good i recently made a clan and we won all 5 wars this was due to cooperation among all members

    • Will Potter

      Awesome!

  • G.K

    I agree 100% with this, I’m a clan Leader. Got to say as a baby clan, we did horrible honestly. Eventually we manage to get better organize have chat group, I personally know most of my members which has helped a lot. Even before reading this, I followed preaty much everything. Our wins have increased a lot, currently 48 lvl 6 clan. Our name S.E.C.T.O.R. I’m GoldKannabis we had 6 winstreak, I decided to give one of my new promoted CO a chance, and ended making a mismatch by putting too many High players with a lot of war weight and not strong enough troops. 6 Winstreak might not seem like a lot, but we have improved a ton since we made changes. I would recommend for any Leader reading this, to take them into account it will help you and your clan.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for sharing this mate! Good luck with your Clan!

  • Arnab Gharay

    thanks for this, we are now getting better. i learn lot from here and people this guide is the best. here is the prove .

    • Will Potter

      Nice War Logs mate! Good luck further!
      And thank you very much for sharing this!

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Speaking of leading your clan to victory. In one of the latest videos that Ash Lane put out in his Clash with Ash channel he said that if you are in TH 9 that it is totally worth it rushing your TH to lvl 11 simply to get the grand warden. That means you skip TH 10 and keep your TH 9 defenses and only get a grand warden. He said the game will still consider you a TH 9 for war purposes and you will face TH 9 bases with a grand warden and kick their asses. Has anybody ever tried this or verified this? Ash said many of his clan members are doing exactly that with much success.

    • Will Potter

      That absolutely works. I am working on a TH9 account with the Warden, but, It’s dang hard to find and get loot as a Town Hall 11. It’s not worth it at this time Daniel, especially the new troop will be out in the upcoming update!

      • Daniel M. Ramos

        Thanks for the advice Will. I suppose it only makes real sense for the type that like to gem their bases to high heaven like the youtubers such as Ash. Getting loot was one of my concerns. I suppose if you are already a max TH9 and have nothing to upgrade it might be something to try; otherwise, I believe it will make you cry when you are trying to farm.

        • Will Potter

          LOL yea. I totally agree with you!

  • Oupal

    just a tips: if you want to meet a weak clan, just bring some th5. My clan usually play with th8-7 and always matched with competitive clan (we have about 65% winrate). after devastating loss many members skip war and forced me to bring some newbie. System matched us with a weak clan. I tried to continue with this composition and we keep get matched with weak clan until now. (maybe because high level clan only bring high level th).

    • Will Potter

      Nice tip for sure!
      Thanks for sharing this mate!

  • Tiaso

    One of the best strategy I encountered is using rank No. 6-10 to at least 2* No.1-5(It’s almost impossible to 3* TH10/TH11 anyway, but of course they have to be good). Then No.1-5 can concentrate on 3* the lower rank with 100% success rate.

  • Diane Acton (Buckner)

    Thanks for the info. Clasher. Im in a lv7 clan that some friends and I started after leaving another clan we were in. We started Aon in August 2015. Our leader Aeternus has lead our clan this way and we have done very well. Like I mentioned we started 7 months ago we are a lv7 clan with devoted members we have won 86 wars with a win ratio of 80% although that has dropped some when we became lv7. Im not sure why this happened. But we are getting some challening matches. If anyone would like to come and join or visit us check out the pic here and read the info. When requesting post “COCLAND” so we know you are you are serious COCers.

    • Will Potter

      Good luck with your Clan Wars mate!

      • Diane Acton (Buckner)

        Thanks Will we also have a new feeder base. Texas AON for th6 and lower

  • Dragon Lord

    Wow nice post here. Our clan itself is just getting started. After a slow start to the first year with a couple of streaks, we are finally able to do 15 v. 15. Lol.
    And we haven’t been able to do that since our last streak. This war we are on top in the first hour too…
    This war stratagy you shared is actually what we use.

    • Will Potter

      Glad to hear that man! Congrats and good luck further to your Clan!

  • Vasu

    Can u tell me how to recruit some reliable and loyal players??

    • SirCreepus

      Well don’t be a begged.Don’t keep asking.No one likes beggers.Just be cool about it,explain your a new clan and are recruiting people to help you!

    • Oupal

      just never hire anyone who came and ask elder/colead. most probably they are kid who don’t know effort and suck at war

    • Will Potter

      Hello Vasu,
      You should give them a goal such as “3000 donates for elder” or something like that! But you should chat with them a lot to see how really they are.

    When the ‘1down from your mirror’ rule was imposed in our clan most players were too egoistic to apply it and continued to attack their mirrors but after losing a couple of wars everyone reallised it was the best way to redeem ourselves. We’ve had a higher win percentage since then

    • Will Potter

      I am very glad to hear this Ace. That’s just awesome!

  • SirCreepus

    my clan wdl before: 32-3-16
    now: 62-3-21.
    and from 5 loss, 2 loss are because some of our members doesn’t use their attack.

    • Will Potter

    • Will Potter

      Good luck with your Clan mate!

  • sai sampat

    Hey Will. I’m a co in my clan. I wanna tell them to implement the one down attack strategy. But I feel inferior to tell them. Max. of the co’s (it’s like 3 of the 4 co’s) are Th 9’s. I’m just Th 8. How do I convey this to them??? Please help me out… Thanks in Advance.

    • If you’re co, then you have no reason to feel inferior. Even if the others are TH9, the leader must have decided to make you co because he trusts you, although you’re a TH8. If you want to convey this to everybody, talk with the co’s about this and then send a clan mail if they agree 🙂

    • Will Potter

      You should give them the URL of my blog man :D.

  • Nathan Remaly

    I am a level 99 th9 with 10/10 heroes and lvl 4 minions, lvl 5 hogs, lvl 2 valks, lvl4 golems, lvl 1 witch and hound. should i upgrade valks and then go back to heroes or should i max out dark troops? also i am doing a system of 6 walls to lvl 10 and then upgrade 1 defense or trap. I have about 35 walls to 10 and so far it is working well. What do you think about that?

    • Will Potter

      You can upgrade your Valkyrie now and work on your Heroes right after that xD.

  • CG McHeaven Turks

    This one helps a lot… using messaging app is a good idea to avoid enemy scouts entering your clan anonymously, great nice thanks for the tip!! 🙂
