The Pen-Ultimate Guide to Leadership!

  • Aug 25, 2014 (39 months ago)
Ok, so I have been running a clan for about seven months (which btw is 14 CoC years). We have done well in war (17-0-2) and have a cadre to great folks. So I am writing the penultimate clan leadership guide. Notice, it is not the ULTIMATE guide because that just seems to piss off Ironic Ninja.

This will be broken into three parts; 1) So ya wanta be a leader? 2) Recruiting and 3) kicking and promoting. There is no war guide because I wrote one a while ago and it is still awesome! Go read it!

Part 1: So ya wanta be a leader?

Yeah, yeah, I know we all want to try this leadership stuff out at some point. Either the clan we are with is run by 12 year olds, they are inactive, or you just know you could be better at it (which may be true). Here are the rules!

1. It is a time sink! If you are not willing to put in substantial time being online when not attacking, donít do it! A lot of stuff comes up in the chat, fighting (and leading wars) etc. It takes time, care and feeding. Be ready!
2. Donít be 12. Seriously.
3. Be at least at level 60 with a TH8 base. This means you have played for a while and know the ropes. Donít know how many times I have been on global chat and have seen copper, level 19s, trying to start a clan. Forget it! Leadership has to be able to donate AT LEAST L5 troops.
4. Be the example: give the most, be on the most, and always be encouraging!
5. Train your mates! Make them better, post attacks, watch their attacks, ask for and give advice on war bases etc.
6. Never start a clan alone! Always bring at least one other person. You need them to help you run the new clan and as a shoulder to cry on.
7. Post the clan rules in the header early on so people know them. Kick appropriately!

Part 2: Recruiting

What a pain in the butt! I hate it, but it needs to be done. Here are the rules!

1. Advertise, advertise, advertise: Use CoC, write a good guide (which shows you know something), go to other sites you have credibility on. Heck most of the members from my current team came from a Texas College football site, and they are awesome! (Of course it doesnít hurt that we can all get together during the season at a tailgate and drink a few beers).
2. Global chat is the Devil! But when you are starting out it is a necessary devil. I donít think I have EVER gotten anyone of substance from there, ever! Hoppers, hoppers, hoppers! And I am not talking about Dish network.
3. Just know that this game is full of pre-pubescent boys and teenagers. They are immature and need demand your attention. They can be great, but donít have a whole team of them or prepare for at least one coup attempt, at LEAST one! They do be crazy.
4. NEVER offer promotions for joining. It cheapens eldership and co-leadership. If you donít value it your clan wonít. If they donít value leadership they wonít listen to them. It must be earned! And for crying out loud NEVER EVER offer leadership unless you want to quit.

Part 3: Kicking and Promoting

Kicking!

Look, it needs to be done. In my personal opinion it is not done enough. If someone violates the rules (which should not be crazy hard) give them a warning, if they do it again kick. Otherwise no one will follow the rules and the clan becomes like a payless shoe store on back to school night.

Personally I donít care if my clan is 10 people or 50 people. I want to enjoy being there. If I am not having fun and youíre the reason why, see ya! Here are the rules when you should kick (but not all of them):

1. Your clan should be invite only: Always!
2. Anyone (early on) who keeps asking for a promotion (had a dude, lvl 88, do this when I started my clan and kicked him after two days. Hello Froster if you are out there!)
3. Anyone who is a jerk. Seriously if they are some high level douche is flexing their level 6 giants then boot them out.
4. Anyone who does not follow the war rules. Look war wins are bragging rights in the CoC world. The better you are the more likely you are to draw more quality players to your team.
5. ONLY leaders and co-leaders can kick! Elders cannot kick. And in the beginning you should be the only one kicking.
6. I also kick if someone misses two wars in a row. But in the kick I tell them they are welcome back when they have more time for the game.

Promoting!

I love promoting people. It is a sign of trust in them and an acknowledgement of their leadership potential. BUT! Donít do it too early or too often. Here are the rules:

1. No one should be immediately promoted to co-leader EXCEPT the person you started the clan with. Too much power! Unless you love random wars started, the header changed into amusing phallic symbols (or how jerky their girl friend is being), and people being booted you donít want being booted.
2. Elders: My rules are: good donators (at least 500 troops per season), 30 war stars they earned while with your clan, and they have been in the clan at least two months. I donít really have a number of elders in mind. Eldership is a sign of respect in the clan.
3. Co-Leaders: If you have more than four you have too many. Co-leaders run your clan, look over the clan website, are the BEST donators and are high level mates who consistently help others get better. I have three co-leaders and they are awesome
4. Demoting! If you have an elder or co-leader who goes inactive, demote. If they miss 3+ wars kick. Itís a bummer but sometimes people get tired of the game

So there you are! A not so concise and penultimate guide to leadership. I fully expect many criticisms and relish the verbal tete a tete likely to ensue!

    CBD, first and foremost, what an amazing guide! I am a writer by trade, and very much appreciate your style – informative and direct, yet personable and sprinkled with humor. I look forward to reading your guide: " clan wars, how to survive and thrive!".

     

    I believe that your guide has value not for just for those who seek instruction on the fundamentals of clan leadership, but in some respects for those who want to be more highly-functioning members of a clan as well. So kudos to you for a very well written guide, in addition to the time and effort you put into your replies on this lengthy forum thread.

     

    I am currently in a German-based clan (which I speak less than very poorly), and while I have excelled rather quickly in the short time that I have been playing (currently an Elder, and very active), I feel I am doing the clan a disservice and greatly hindering my growth and ability to participate by remaining in an environment where bi-lateral communication is handicapped.

     

    Therefore, I ask you principally Michael (i.e. CBD) - as we are fellow Texans (i.e. Sharing the same time zone), but extend the request anyone: Are you aware of a clan that is English- or Spanish-based, that offers a learning, brotherly environment with fair rules of engagement?

     

    Player Name:        Marcsen
    Town Hall Status:  TH7 (Basic/Newly Acquired)
    Strengths:            Defensive & Symmetrical Layouts, Generous Contributor, Frequency
    Weaknesses:         Attack Strategies, Warring & Clan Educate, Army Building Strategies, etc.

    I've been running my clan for almost eleven months and I still have to deal with opening the clan and having no less than fifty hoppers go in and out and gain like five crap people. Is something wrong with this?

    In my clan we have a ton of co leaders and elders and we pass the leadership around between all of the co leaders as well of a extended clan of at least 60 members which is odd to get used to as we are all hoppers which seems really weird to new people who wonder why suddenly the leader and some others leave the clan who had evidently been there a long time but to members who have been there a couple of months will always come back we have a laid back attitude and we have been going for over 2 years with around 300 people having been through our clan!

    Nice guide. Our clan requirement for eldership is at least 500 donations per season for 3 consecutive season. Not so hard for those who really want it :)

    Valk, good question. Starting a clan is hard regardless, so many out there, so many hoppers around. I have a member of my clan who started his own clan and is lower level. It took a long time to get it going and he used our clan to help get him started. If you really want to start a clan you really need 2-3 people to go with you. Otherwise it is not gonna work. Even if you are high level. Remember from above: "global chat is the devil." Stay frosty!

    Hi, I want to start my own clan, but every time I start my own no one joins. I think it is because I just upgraded to TH7 and because I am in Silver League 1. Almost to Gold. I agree when you say, if you are in a higher level the chances of people joining is a lot higher. Mostly because you people like leader which has lot of experience, can donate high level troops and high league. So I will try your Guide out when I have my TH7 base at max. Do you think it will work at TH7?
    Thanks!

    Co leaders,....co lead. If you need more people to this then promote. If you dont need them to help run the clan then dont. I do not look at the co leader rank as a prestige rank like elder. They are functional leaders. As such you dont need very many.

    I agree mostly, I run a clan with 60 members (including our new feeder clan), and I think the number of Co-Leaders should not only be based on the number of members you have in the clan, but also if you already hit your "max" amount of Co-Leaders and someone is deserving of the promotion, then they shouldn't be neglected!

    I agree with most of this guide, except promoting that first person to Coleader. That person can easily wait until you get offline and kick everyone. I would only suggest that if you actually know the person. Great guide! :)

    Ya and those who read it enjoy it, yet you wrote it in such a good way that once they read it they dont need to read it again to know better, bad for business, good for doing something good LOL. I personally loved leadership when i still played, I was the leader of a clan with 19k trophies and its feeder had 12k trophies. It was so dang friendly until i quit the clan and the game, so me and my clans name went down in history together

    My guess, leadership does not light everyone's jets like the latest guide on how to use loons to get two stars with a th8 base. But it has been a great discussion. Those who care read it.

    My elder rule: Elder is deserved through elderly behavior. That is high activity (plenty donations and online every day), good clan wars skill, and general maturity and helpfulness in chat. Elders can kick as much as they see fit. Miss a war means demotion. Miss two and you are kicked (with a friendly invite). The problem is with new members and being sure that they will attack in clan wars.

    Now, successfully implementing an attack strategy going into wars as far as what bases should be ignored, ensuring people go for a three star attack their first attack, etc. -- I'd love to see that guide..

    In my clan, we'd have at least a few more wins if we had just ignored the top 4-5 bases, allowed our lower attackers to try three starring their respective bases first, etc... - but since being online simultaneously is not a common occurrence, people do not scroll down in the clan chat and learn these things...

    Even the high guys who continue to one star top bases for win bonuses that often don't come, which is blames on non-attackers who, as co-leader, I have been asked, "why'd you kick that guy?" - well, we've lost two in a row now according to you? Lol...

    Not sure what you mean by strict, but if you mean do i follow my own rules, then yes. Super great group of folks who self manage therefore not a lot to enforce. We also play fantasy football together and I will totally own them this year in that too!

    Btw, no we did not know each other before this. It was a matter of constant culling. Keep the good get rid of the bad. Use the war record (19-0-2 now btw) as a way to draw in good players. We have several younger players who are excellent as well.

    I LIKE THIS - ITS TAKEN ME 7 MONTHS TO LEARN THAT CLASH OF CLANS IS FUN - BUT THE REAL REWARD OF THE GAME ISN'T THE FIGHTING - ITS THE STRUCTURE OF THE CLAN - THE PEOPLE - THE RULES - THE IMPLEMENTATION - SEEING PEOPLE GROW AND BECOME LEADERS - DISCOVERING WHO IS A GREAT LEADER - THE HOPPERS DON'T GET IT - MANY ARE TOO YOUNG TO GET IT - I'M ALL ABOUT TEACHING AND GROOMING THE YOUNG ONES - BUT THE BIGGEST REWARD....TEACHING THEM HOW TO BECOME LEADERS...THAT STARTS WITH GREAT LEADERSHIP AND RECOGNIZING POTENTIAL AND KNOWING WHERE TO CUT YOUR LOSSES - I'M THE LEADER OF MY CLAN - WE ARE "THE APOSTLES" - COME AND BECOME GREAT WITH US! YOU NEED TO DONATE 500 IN A SEASON TO GET ELDER - WE TRACK IT AND WE WILL REWARD YOU IF YOU EARN IT - TRUST ME...GET IT WILL BE FEEL GREAT - YOU'LL HAVE EARNED IT...SOMETHING TO BE SAID ABOUT THAT!

    In my experience, no matter what, leadership always corrupts. It's human nature, power goes to your head. If you make a clan, be a fair leader. Trust your coleaders, be nice to new members even though they suck. Don't make dumb desicions, it takes time to make a perfect coc family. Don't **** it up by being an @$$hole and letting power get to your head.

    Zane, happy to invite you. What trophy level are you at? I will lower it for you. I keep it high to avoid random requests from coming in. Which seems to happen a lot. We are in a war right now so you will have to sit the sidelines but it will show you how we fight.

    Red dwarf is the clan name. I am the leader, Michael. We have 38 members. Our shield is the red half, white other half shield. Have a look and tell me what you think.

    I do apologize for the run-off sentence at the end, I should've proof read my post (realized after lol....smh). Again these run-off sentences and ramblings are just my humble opinion and your article was a good read. Please don't get me wrong I think the wars are cool and was an excellent add-on. However I do see your points about team cohesion and this is why I do like the war debate (lol). One must be open-minded in order to learn.

    I guess to clarify my stand point would be to say that I feel that if your a new clan "getting on its feet" I would recommend focusing on membership and growth first and foremost then entertain the idea of wars etc.

    On a side-note I am curious CBD what your clan's name is, if you don't mind indulging me. if not no worries.

    Wow Piwpnoff (if I may call you that) quite a review. So long that I am writing this in Word using several spell and grammar checks.

    I see the reason for ‚Äúanyone can join‚ÄĚ but I have friends, who are leaders, who have used this strategy and really it creates a herky jerky roster without much cohesion, or at least so they tell me. But as a beginning strategy I can see the merits.

    Wars: I love wars! I believe it creates a real team out of your clan rather than simply a bunch of archer donators. Also it helps everyone get better at attacking and knowing how to defend. It is a time sink though and might not be for everyone. In fact, we have gone using our website for all war calls and have several rules around them.

    During a war leadership is pretty much glued to the computer. This is why we only have one war a week, mid-week, to allow us to have real lives (though some more real than others) and actually talk to real people. Plus my wife would kill me if we had any more than one war a week.

    Thank you very much for your comments. You made me smarter just reading it!

    I pretty much agree with everything here, however I believe there are a few alternative strategies. I don't necessarily agree with the "Invite Only" rule, although I see the angle. I feel this rule is good once you have a clan that is upper echelon and established, however when first starting a clan I feel that you can set it to "Anyone can join." This will alleviate the constant need to recruit. I find it easier to set minimum requirements to join utilizing the minimum trophy level and unit level. I like minimum level 4 units because it allows you to meet and keep future up-and-comers and level 4 units are better half of level 6 units (of course I refer to regular elixir units and excluding healers, dragons, and pekkas - max is level 4). Then I also make sure to follow up on the new-comers to see that they aren't players that simply hit easy town halls exposed in the corners of maps to reach high trophy levels but had town halls that were weak. In other words players with less than level 4 units.

    Now on the topic of wars, and I do love this topic and my perspective may start a good debate here (lol). Simply put, I agree its merely a bragging right for a clan (good war stats); waste of time, unless you and your members are minimum of town hall 9 - 10 and are running out of things to do in the game (i.e. max upgrades). My reasoning for this opinion is as follows: wars require a great deal of clan communication, such as pre-selecting targets for each player, ensuring that your clan mates, including yourself, aren't so weak defensively that you will give up stars to your opponents easily, and lastly, the amount of elixir dedicated to wipe your opponent is high, because lets face it, your not going to war with your trusted, tried and true farming load-out. You will be using all those cool units that you rarely use. This is expensive as I previously mentioned and those resources are better used to for your upgrades back at the home front. The conundrum is this: yes I "could" win big payouts from participating from wars but this is solely based on the active participation of my clan mates, and getting 40-50 members to be online to communicate and put together strategies for your enemy becomes difficult. Our members have real lives with real stuff going on. My point is basically this, If you and your clan mates can dedicate the required time to put together a successful war operation that kudos and kick some a$$ sea bass, but if this is not the case for your clan, then avoid wars and concentrate on farming raids all day everyday because the payouts are much more lucrative, cheaper to accomplish and can be done more frequently then waiting several hours to train 9 dragons etc to get 3 stars and then repeat, while hoping the rest of the clan follows suit just to lose large amounts of time and elixir. In that same amount of time you could've acquired the same, if not more, war payout that day then a two day war.

    I dont completely disagree with free elder, I actually give free elder for these reasons:

    Everyone can invute therefore the clan gets bigger.
    Everyone can accept new members to the clan if the clan is set on invite only.
    Newer members that just joined could he kicked if hoppers or people who want co leader and kick or people who swear, so i dont think of it as a bad thing

    I love the way you write. I hate it when you see some stupid guide that says
    1. Place your giants.
    2. Place your archers behind your giants
    3. Place a healer.
    4. Watch yourself win.
    You write it with a humor that I try to incorporate into my guides.

    The only things that I disagree with is that you cant get anyone good to join on global. I am the leader of a clan and I have gotten many great players to join. Also another thing is that I was low TH7 when i started and is now high TH7 and I have gotten over 25 member which are all high th 7 and up.
    Still a Great guide and cant wait to see more from you.

    Not um um, recruiting. Didn't write an um um section. That would be a dietary requirements section and i dont have a firm opinion on that other than eat more roughage.

    Hahahaha No one is "mature" at age 12 and most 20 year olds aren't that mature either the don't be twelve is a great rule that i have in my clan and you shouldn't feel bad that 12 year olds are immature it's natural and yes maturity does come with lifestyle but the only 12 year olds that have that life style have younger siblings and their parents have abandoned them leaving them to care for their siblings. Oh and don't be in such a hurry to grow up adult life kinda sucks sometimes dude.

    You are an aberration. The fact most people think you are in your 20s proves it. Congrats!

    Im a 12 year old and th7 (lvl70 almost 71), and have a clan with a best trophy push of 19,036 clan pts, the dont be 12 is very stupid, not like 12 year olds are immature, that really made me feel bad about other people that think of 12 year olds as immature people, guys in my clan thought i was in my 20s because I was mature, maturity comes with lifestyle not age.
