    Been some good responses already, and I agree with the sentiment about the primary motivator for war being the challenge and now the loot. However the loot is nice, especially since it goes to your treasury where it has more protection than storages. Can be nice to tap into that when you're close to a major upgrade.

    But that's definitely not the main reason to war for me.

Random raiding is just troop spamming and hoping for a good result. Couldn't care less about loot. I'm fine living off of collectors and a few war spoils.

    CoC has taken a back seat to other apps I have taken up now.
    Spot on; farming is mindless, albeit necessary, work to upgrade. Cracking a base for three stars is the only thrill in this game for me...

    Think of Clan Wars as like the Olympics.
    Usain Bolt sprinting down the track to collect the ultimate prize....Olympic Gold (again!).

    So, does Mr Bolt enter this race for the $?

    No, he earns his money from regular track meets, sponsorship and endorsements etc
    History will tell it's own story of Usain Bolt, but it won't be about farming more loot in Brussells or Prague, but about winning Gold medals in London or Rio!!

    p.s. still think I could beat him!!

    War is not about the loot. If you only care about loot, don't war, or at least, please don't war in a clan with me

    War is about the challenge, the pressure, and the thrill of a 3 star on a tough base, when the chips are down and your clan really needs a result.

    War is about the winning. Most of us have to lose a bit too, but no need to enjoy that, suck it up and go again.

    War is about doing your best, putting everything in to a war, and seeing if you can best another clan.

    I suspect war is not for you OP. Though perhaps see the FWA thread?

    All of the above. Farming is for loot. If you don't want to spend the resources to war, then it isn't for you. I know that I've personally kicked people from the clans I've been in over the years for using garbage farming armies to make a war attack, that they've failed miserably. 'But a war army is so expensive ' Bye bye

    All haste spells? Or do you prefer rage? Lol

    I'm in the war hits shouldn't ever take cost into account camp. Best attack you got for the base layout. Farm on your own time.

    The most fun thing about playing Clash of Clans is war, the thrill of attacking, knowing if you'll win or not... I don't make war to win resources, on the other hand, even if I win the war, I always lose because the two best of the clan donate all the troops to the others, including the castles of the war map.
    So if you fight for resources, you're not doing well.
    You learn a lot in warfare and above all, it's a lot of fun. It's the moment when people are most active.

    As others had mentioned, if you war for loot or concerned about resources used for war army, your clan would be in serious trouble.
