All those information and videos during the last week about Clan Wars, but what does really bother everyone? I made a wrap up of all the frequently asked questions

Essential Info

When will Clan Wars come?

No one knows for sure, but we probably see it wednesday or thursday (April 9th or 10th, 2014) as Supercell always releases the update 1 week after the first sneek peak (which was on wednesday 2nd April) or on thursdays.

What is Clan War?

Clan War is a optional fight your clan can start if you want to. It’s a two day long fight betweentwo clans where each participant attacks villages (called War Bases in Clan Wars) twice and the clan with most stars will win. There is a lot of war bonus you can get from this. More details can be found here.
IMPORTANT: New concept when talking about Clan Wars: WAR BASE means your home on war map. The war base is not the village. The war base is your home in the war map, and the village is your home in the normal game. For example, your village does not get locked during battle day, but your war base does. You do not donate troops to friendly villages during preparation day, you donate troops to friendly war bases. You do not defeat enemy villages in war, but you do defeat enemy war bases, etc. etc.

What happens to my village during a clan war? Does my village go to war or is it safe?

Your village is always safe from clan war attacks because clan wars are fought in a different area than the regular game: the war zone. In the war zone, players prepare and attack war bases instead of their regular villages. Your village’s resources, trophies and shield are never at risk during a clan war.

Starting a Clan War

How can I start Clan War?

Leaders and co-leaders can take their clan to war by opening the clan war screen and pressing the “Start War” button. This will start the search for an opponent clan, and you will be able to see the size of the clan war you are being matched for (e.g. 15 vs 15). The clan war will start immediately after an opponent clan has been found.

Can I participate in a Clan War when joining a clan? Can I leave a clan while a Clan War is happening?

To participate in a clan war, you must be a part of a clan when a leader or co-leader presses the “Start War” button. If you join the clan after this point, you will become a spectator and will not be able to actively participate in the clan war. After a leader or co-leader presses the “Start War” button, you are free to leave, join other clans and return to the clan to continue participating in the clan war. Your war base will remain in the war map even if you leave, so leaving a clan will not affect an ongoing war. However, you cannot participate in more than one clan war at a time. If you leave a clan while participating in a clan war, you will not be able to participate in any other clan wars until that previous war has ended. Other players will be able to see that you are still part of an unfinished war by checking your profile. You will be marked as ineligible for war until the previous clan war has concluded.

How are inactive members handled when starting a Clan War?

Inactive members are treated the same as active members in clan wars. They can still be the target of any actions during the war, including receiving donated troops and being attacked by the enemy. Inactive members will still count toward the total team size and their war bases will still appear on the war map. However, inactive members will not use their attacks and will not receive any bonus loot.

Can I cancel a Clan War?

Before an opponent clan has been found, you can cancel the search by pressing the “cancel” button. However, after an opponent has been found, the clan war cannot be cancelled. The preparation day begins immediately.

Matchmaking in Clan Wars

Can I choose a clan I want to have a Clan War against?

No. Clan wars matchmaking matches clans based on the strength of their members. Unlike multiplayer battles, trophies have no influence in determining your clan wars opponent. After an opposing clan is found, the war immediately starts. There’s no “nexting” in clan wars matchmaking.

How is this strengt calculated? Can I see it somewhere?

Strength is based on each member’s attacking power (troops, army camp capacity, spells and heroes) and defensive strength (defense buildings, walls, traps and heroes). Different layouts and base designs do not affect strength. The only way a member’s strength can be changed is if they upgrade their troops, defenses, spells, etc. Both clans will always have the same number of war bases in a clan war. Clan wars matchmaking will only match clans of similar sizes, and a few members (between 1-4 per clan) may be put into spectator mode when the clans are matched to even out team sizes. The members in spectator mode will be those with the lowest trophy count in their clan (or those who are ineligible for war). 10 vs 10 members is the smallest possible team size for a clan war. Other possible team sizes are: 15 vs 15, 20 vs 20, 25 vs 25, 30 vs 30, 35 vs 35, 40 vs 40, 45 vs 45 and 50 vs 50. Clan wars matchmaking will always match your clan into the largest possible clan war.

The War Map

What is this map?

This is a map of the war zone, where clan wars take place. Your clan will always be in the friendly territory on the left side on the map. The enemy clan will always be in the enemy territory on the right side of the map. You can press the arrow button at any time to view the other side of the map. Every town hall on the war map represents a war base. By tapping a town hall, you can view more information about that player, such as their completed attacks. You can also scout, donate troops, or attack a war base from this menu. The actions you can take will change with each phase of the clan war.
The bases are ordered from highest to lowest strength. The highest strength war bases are at the top of the war map. Trophies have no influence on the order of bases. War bases never need to have their traps rearmed, defenses reloaded, or heroes healed, as they are always ready for battle. The war base can not be directly upgraded or rearranged, but will instead mimic the arrangement and highest completed upgrade levels of your village during the preparation day. Buildings and traps will never be “under construction” in your war base. The War Base is only for defense in clan wars. All attacking armies must come from your normal village.

1st Day – Preparation Day

This is the day when clans prepare their defenses, gather information about, and start making plans against the opposing clan. There are no attacks during preparation day, but it is a crucial time for devising a strategy to win the war!
There are three main activities during preparation day: rearranging your war base, donating reinforcement troops to your clan mates, and scouting enemy war bases.

How can I donate troop for my clan members in Clan Wars?

The clan castle in your war base is different from the clan castle in your village and must be filled separately. The troops donated to a war base will be used to defend it against all attacks during battle day. Unlike your regular village, there is no need to request troops for your war base. Instead, all war bases are automatically open for troop donation during preparation day. To donate, simply tap on a clan mate’s war base during preparation day and donate troops directly. Remember, troops cannot be donated to war bases during battle day.

2nd Day – Battle Day

This is the day when clans attack, start scoring stars and pushing toward victory! War bases cannot be changed during battle day, so victory hinges solely on having superior attacking skill and coordination. Pay close attention to how the war map updates after every attack, and adjust your strategy as needed to try to maximize your clan stars! You can only attack 2 times during battle day, so make each attack count! Use scouting and clan chat to plan your attacks in advance. You can choose any opposing player to attack, but keep in mind that you cannot attack the same target with both attacks.
During battle day, you will always have a recommended target visible on the war map. The recommended target shows you the closest match for your attack strength based on the defense strength of your opponents. Base layout isn’t taken into consideration, though, nor is your favorite attacking style, so it is a good idea to also check a few bases above it and a few bases below it to see if you can find a target you like better.

What troops can I use for attacking another War Base?

Your attacking army must be trained and prepared in your village just like you’d do for a normal multiplayer attack. It is up to you if you would rather find a good target for your regular army composition, or if you would instead train an unusual army to take out a specific base with a certain weakness.

Is my village locked during this period? Will I loose resources if I get attacked?

No. Your shields and your resources are save. The loot you can get when attacking an enemy War Base is generated out of nowhere in the Clan Castle and only for Clan Wars.

End of Clan War & Loot

Aside from the glory of victory, every participating member of the winning clan will immediately be awarded the full bonus loot they accrued from their victorious attacks. In addition, the clan will earn a shiny new point in its “Wars won” stat, visible from the clan description. If you did not win (loose) members of the losing clan will suffer a stiff penalty to their bonus loot. Losing members will still be awarded their earned bonus loot, but it will be heavily reduced.

What is loot bonus?

Different bases are worth different amounts of bonus loot. The higher the defensive strength of the War Base, the more bonus loot it is worth, though the bonus is reduced if the base is many town hall levels below your own. You can see the amount of bonus loot an enemy War Base is worth by tapping on it in the war map during battle day.

Can I get loot from storages?

There is always a small amount of resources available in the storages of enemy War Bases. This loot is delivered to your storages immediately, just like with any other multiplayer attack. However, the amount of loot in these storages is fixed, and will always be much lower than the war win bonus. The loot that is available to enemies in your War Base doesn’t come from your village, so your resources are safe.
