Get ready clashers! Clan War Leagues has arrived and here is the complete tutorial, explaining what it is and how it works.
Have a question? Send me on Twitter @HouseofClashers!
This is a new game mode where your clan will join 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.
The event will happen once every month and the minimum number of members to participate on this new War is 15, since all wars will be 15 vs 15.
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.
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 will start too, where not only you have to fill up the Clan Castles, but you must also choose the members that will participate on the next one. This is how you can substitute bad players for the next war.
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.
The moment a war ends, the next one starts immediately.
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, mas eventually you will be match against clans just as good as your clan.
A Clan can only participate in one war type at a time: Clan War Leagues or regular Clan Wars or a Friendly War.
Once the war is over, the clans with more stars will be promoted to the next League. The worst ones, demoted. The number of clans promoted/demoted depends on the current league the clan is.
Each member will get League Medals as a bonus. You will get medals based on how many stars you've got during the war, and also extra ones for winning, even if you were not selected to participate on the battles.
The amount of stars changes according to the War League of your clan.
At the end there is one last cool feature: the Leader of Co-Leader must give a special bonus to the players they think deserve the most.
A table with complete stats of the participating members will be showed and the leaders will choose is going to get the extra bonus.
You can spend the League Medals at the League Shop. You can buy the exclusive Magic Hammers, other Magic Items or decoration items.
That's it guys! If you have any question please let me know on Twitter @HouseofClashers. Also special thanks to the YouTuber Galadon, since some gameplay pictures I got from his channel. :)
Cheers and Clash On!
