This article is updated with the Spring 2019 update that changed the reward system.


Clash of Clans Clash of Clans Clan War Leagues Preparation

Clan War Leagues - also know as CWL - is a type of Clan Wars where your clan will battle against 8 clans and was introduced on the October 2018 update.

On CWL your clan joins a group of 8 clans to battle against each other on a series of 7 consecutive 24-hour wars. To start, a Leader or Co-Leader must sign up the clan to participate.


How to Sign Up

CWL happens once every month. This event is always previously announced on the events tab with a countdown for event. Once the the sign up period starts the leaders of you Clan have 2 days to choose the members and sign up your clan.

The minimum number of members to participate on this new War is 15.

Starting on April 2019, the Clan can sign up to 15vs15 or 30vs30 wars. After the sign up, there is no way to change and you must go through the 7 days of war with that size. Clans on Champions League can only make 15vs15 wars.

You can change the players on your team for each war

Even tough this is the minimum, you can pick more player to participate. Since the event is seven 24-hour wars you can substitute members every day. Think about this as a football team: if the player is not participating as he should, he can be replaced.

Tip: we recommend signing up all member to the CWL, so even players that won't attack will get League Medals for the victories.


8 Days, 7 Wars, 1 Attack/Day


The whole event lasts a total of 8 days, with the first day being a preparation day followed by seven 24-hour wars.

On the first day of preparation, you have to fill up the clan castles with defense troops. But this doesn't mean we will have only one preparation day, there are actually 7 preparation days. Once a war starts, the preparation for the next war starts as well, where not only you have to fill up the Clan Castles, but also choose the members that will participate on the next one. This is how you can replace bad players for the next war. The moment a war ends, the next one starts immediately.

Another very important change from regular wars is the fact that each member can only make one attack per war, making every attack very important. If a player doesn't attack, an enemy village will not be attacked at all.


Matchmaking / Unfair Battles


The matchmaking is based only on the current league your clan is. It's a ladder-based war. There is no war-weight, Town Hall levels, Engineered Bases, nothing, only the War League your clan is matters, making this a truly skill-based game mode.

One quick note, the first time you enter on a CWL your clan will automatically enter a specific league. This league is based on the 15 strongest players of your clan. The higher your league is, stronger your clan and enemies should be.

On the first CWL event there were many complains of unfair matchmaking, but as soon as the stronger clans level up, the battles will start to be fair. It will take some time, but eventually you will be match against clans just as good as your clan.


Clan War + Clan War League


A Clan can only participate in one war type at a time: Clan War Leagues, regular Clan Wars or a Friendly War. If your Clan decides to not participate on CWL, it can call regular Clan Wars without issues.

A member that was not selected to join the CWL can also leave the Clan, join another Clan and participate on their Wars, he will not be ineligible.


Clan Promotion

Reward Calculation

Every war will reward players with a Loot Bonus, similar to the Clan Wars.

However, on CWL players will also get League Medals as a reward. League Medals are a special currency that can only be obtained on CWL and can only be used on the League Shop, the only place that you can buy Magic Hammers.

The amount of League Medals you get on Clan War Leagues depends on your League, on the final position of your Clan on the competition and on the amount of Stars you've obtained during the League.

However, you will only get a the maximum reward if you obtained 8 or more Stars during the CWL. Here is the list that shows the % of League Medals you will get based on how many Stars you earned:

130%
240%
350%
460%
570%
680%
790%
8+100%


It's important to notice that even is you didn't earned any Star (or didn't attack at all) you will get a small amount of League Medals (20%), for this reason we recommend signing up all members of your clan, even if some members will not participate on the actual wars.


Extra Bonus
