Clan Wars and Bases

In this guide I will take you through the process of Clan Wars as well as some strategy behind designing a base for Clan Wars.

Clan Wars is a two day process, day one is "Preperation Day", where each clan member will redesign His/Her base to best protect it against attack as well as filling up the clan castle with strong defensive troops such as Wizards, Dragons, Witches and Archers which I will tell you more about later. Day two is "Battle Day" where each clan member (including or excluding the member with the least trophies in the clan, depending on the amount of players in the enemy clan) will have a chance to wage two battles against the player of their choice in the opposition clan, with the intention of getting the full 3 stars (so make sure that you attack someone that you know you can beat). The game however does select a "Best Match" Opponent based on mathematical calculations that take into account Base level, defensive buildings, walls etc. However it is the choice of the attacking player as to who he/she wishes to attack. After the player has taken His/Her two battles against an opposition, the best of the two battles will be selected and the amount of stars earned in that battle will be added to the total "Clan Stars" amount (The number of stars that the clan as a whole has racked up through victories in the war). After an individual battle win, the winning attacker will receive a loot bonus, whereas the defender has to make do with nothing until he/she attacks. After the second day the clan with the most stars won, takes the victory and an enormous loot bonus. The losing clan also gets a loot bonus but it is less than 30 percent of that of the winning clan. After the Clan War has ended the clan Leader/co-Leader(s) can begin a new Clan War immediatly.
During a Clan War there are certain differences in-game in the players "War base" when compared to their usual base. The war base is meant strictly for battle, this means that any recource storages are as important as say barracks's for example because the player cannot lose any loot therefore rendering the storage building irrelevant as a storage. Other differences are that all traps, and heros will be healed and rearmed automatically at no cost what so ever.

The War Base
A player will be required to create a base that gives them an advantage in defense over their normal base, a War Base does not focus on protecting any resource storages directly like a farming base does, but instead focusses on protecting the Town Hall and defending against attackers with the aim of preventing any stars. A War Base must have good splash damage coverage (splash damage is the kind of damage dealt by mortars and wizard towers, it does damage to large numbers of troops rather than one unit at a time) and should also be designed in a way that allows every available building to be in range of a defensive building. The clan castle will also play a major role in the outcome of a defense, make sure you fill your clan castle with good troop combinations:
-For a level 1 clan castle (10 spaces) 2 wizards and two archers is a great combination.
-For a level 2 clan castle (15 spaces) 1 witch and 3 archers is a good combination however it does not do as well as 3 wizards and 3 archers.
-For a level 3 clan castle (20 spaces) The best option is a dragon followed by 5 wizards then a witch and 2 wizards and lastly 4 wizards and 4 archers.
-For a level 4 clan castle (25 spaces) The best bet is to go with a witch 3 wizards and 1 archer.
-For a level 5 clan castle (30 spaces) The usual champions league combination of 2 witches 1 wizard and two archers works well.

Every outcome of an attack, or defense is based entirely on your choice. So make it good and just remember... Enjoy it!

    Valkeries are great in CW defense, they mesh in with archers and can go unseen until they take out your whole pack of archers or barbs that you planned on using to kill the CC troops with..

    Can other players that are not involved in the clan war attack you? I'm worried that if I make a clan war base and put my resources outside, random people will come and take all my resources easily.

    if you have things under construction, they revert to the level pre-construction and are still operational in the war from what I've heard. so if you have a level 5 wizard tower and upgrade it sometime before war day, it will still show as under construction on your regular base layout, but when its being attacked in war stage, it is still a lvl 5 wizard tower

    Thanks all, sorry about the minor mistake with the CC level 4, I meant to add a Witch to that list. And I also needed to mention that the upgrades of defenses dont at all effect your defense in your clan wars base. Thanks again people, will be releasing another guide very soon about clan prep and strategies for clan wars. enjoy and good luck!

    Is it possible to empty out your war clan castle (get rid of your clan castle troops to replace them with new ones). I can;t manage to figure out how.

    Oops, sorry you did tell us about the rewards. But still. Maybe get them into seperate parts with spaces inbetween? Strategies of who to attack, and how? You are pretending like it's something done solo here. ''select the base you feel like attacking''. NO. Go to your clan chat and ask around what bases should be done. Communicate...

    how about you just say Witch > wizard > dragon > archer in clan castle? Fill up with whatever first of those still fits in? I stick to that for defense... works pretty good.

    there is no point in protecting your storages because when you are attacked only a very small amount of loot is actually taken

    The level 4 Clan Castle troops combination only adds up to 13 Spaces. And also, there arent any level 6 Clan Castle.
