Watch our clan war gameplays, I upload it everyday on YouTube and live stream on Facebook.
This post is not just for player that just begin playing Clan Wars it’s also a guide for the whole Clan how you can integrate the Clan War Beginner so they will help you win the next Clan War. If you’re experience please don’t stop reading here. If you’re really a new player in Clan War you might want to check out the Clan Wars FAQ to know how it works in theory. Remember that the 3 Stars from the lowest opponent base is worth as much as the 3 Stars from the top player and if your lowest clan members can score down there the others can use their attacks on higher ranked opponents so it’s very important to make them Clan War professional as soon as possible.
Show Clan War Beginner how your Clan handles the organization
First of all it’s important to know for a beginner how you pick bases – take a number around your own number or comes first get served first or maybe your Clan Members pick their tragets and may block them for quite a while. If the Clan War Beginner need some advice help them choose their target and help them scout. Always remember that Clan War is teamplay and you have to work as a team here so you will not only help them but also yourself when it comes down to which Clan has won the Clan War. If you’re the Clan War Beginner just ask which traget you should take the first few times until you understand the system.
Also make them ask for good troops if they use them for their Clan War attacks. A Level 3 Dragon will boost their army much more than it will boost the army setup of a Town Hall 9 player. It’s normally better for them to ask (or ask yourself) for specific troops instead of just “War Troops”.
Clan War Beginner attacking strategyNow it comes down to the attack so here are some things to mind that are different in Clan Wars from the regular game (if you’re the leader and want to improve how you new Clan War participants perform show them these rules):
Always mind the Clan Castle first
In Clan War you will always face a filled Clan Castle – if you’re lucky it’s not filled with the most powerful troops but it will be filled that’s what I can promise to you. When scouting the base you should click on the Clan Castle to see the radius and make a plan how you can pull the Clan Castle Troops and kill them. You can’t attack if they are alive! Some Troops are able to completely wipe out your whole attack and you don’t have second tries in Clan War.
After you know how you can pull out the Troops think about how you can kill them (either with Lightning Spells or Archers). But how do you know what’s in there? Simply wait until others have attacked some opponents bases around the one you’re going to attack and watch the replays. If you see a Dragon coming out of that Clan Castle it’s very likely that the base you’re going to attack will also have a Dragon in there so don’t bring a Lightning Spell for the Clan Castle Troops.
Don’t destroy the base and loose 1 star
In Clan War the resources are completely created out of nowhere so it’s good to place Gold or Elixir Storages in the very corners. This means you need troops to destroy them because you will loose some time between starting the attack and having killed all Clan Castle Troops and if you have slow troops they might not get all the outside buildings in time for the 3 stars. Bring some additional Archers in case you see corner buildings. Also remember that the Storages have a lot more hitpoints than the Builder Huts you might have seen in regular attacks.
Don’t step the Trap Clan War Beginner
Last but not least take care of Traps! In Clan Wars the Traps are always loaded and settled up so always try to make test-deployments before you send in your Giants or whatever in masses. If they get into a Spring Trap it gets dirty for you and you might not win the attack just because of that. I call that testing the water and made some posts here on the technique.
I hope this will help improve your Clan War performance. Sometimes we’re very blind when it comes to getting better so we use wild techniques on cloaking ourselves in front of the enemy, send spies, change the layout in the last minute but in the end we could have gotten 10 more stars just if we tell the Clan War Beginner how they can get successful in Clan War.
