    We are a causal clan, older adults, jobs, kids, and busy lives. We find a war base that works we keep it until it stops working. First war the enemy clan has "anyone can join" so any of our enemies from war 2 onward can go to our enemy clan from war 1 and see our war bases.

    And if were required to spend more time on an aspect of the game most dont enjoy (build new war bases for every war". To get fair wars many would get fustrated and quit playing.

    Thanks OP, Excellent idea!! The clan that's in 7th place right now is set to "Anyone can join". Our last two wars are against the 2nd & 3rd place clans (we're in 1st, toot toot), which have already battled this 7th place clan. I'm going to jump over there to watch some replays!!

    our normal wars I don't care, all they will see is some easy to best base layouts and empty CCs. lol: plus the sea of red in out log anyhow..

    But this CLW is a splash back in to the competitive realm. cant be giving out any edges, we need all the help we can get!
    We closed our clan at the start but we have no control over what the other clans who we are match against do.

    I agree with 2222 shouldn't be able to see other clans in clan war league. Not letting anyone, whos not in the roster, see replays would work to. Since we put everyone in the roster whos active, so most of our perment members would be able to watch and cheer us on.

    We all learned from Friendly Challenges, that practicng for three stars is NOT as time consuming as we thought.
    And, yes, I agree, it will become a problem more and more and espescially in the high leagues, you can be 100% sure of that.

    A quick solution:
    Have enough players to cycle through, with three bases each you can make sure of a different player/base every war.
    Downside:
    Your best base can only be used once every CWL, your best players canít be in every war.

    Another quick solution:
    Change your trap positioning from war to war.
    Downside:
    The sensible placements are limited and you might run out of places to put them in.

    Last quick solution:
    Change your saved bases regularly.
    Downside:
    Time consuming, you canít use your best base every war.

    General solution:
    Replays only visible to folks on the roster, anyone else and visitors can see season standings and in-clan standings only, nothing more.
    Downside:
    None (other than it wonĎt be here any time soon, if ever)

    Have Fun

    That would pretty much kill spying, and would still let you see the rest of the info about your opponents.
    Yes, I always like that suggestion. It would help the spying issue a lot. It wouldn’t help the cooperation between known clans issue that will happen here in CWL since clan names are visible, but would end the spying.
    Contact SC here. Click here to see how trophies are calculated. Main clouds thread here. My tips/thoughts on Legends here. My suggested legends changes found here. Although now I expect we will just wait for project blue skies. Fingers crossed.

    If someone has that much time on their hands, god bless them.
    If anyone is worried about it close your clan.
    Of course closing your clan doesn't help if they go to one of the other clans you've already warred and check out your base.

    After a CWL war was done, I had a guy from one of the clans we faced wanting to join us. Seems innocent, but I'm sure the purpose was to get a look at the war bases form ALL the clans we have warred with to see exactly that. It was of no consequence to us as we had already warred then and won. This is a HUGE issue. And no, its not about who you let in, it's about who the other 7 clans let in to spy. You have no control over that.

    I agree. For all those saying “just close your clan” you are completely missing the issue. It’s the other 7 clans you need to worry about. Members of those clans might have no idea that they are letting in players for nefarious motives or they might realize it immediately and help them out to ensure a tough time for your clan. Either way, if SC intends CWL to be truly competitive, especially at top leagues, they need to address this issue.

    Spying is not an issue rather it's an "infamous" strategy in War/Strategy games to gain an advantage over the opponents.

    One doesn't have to like it but I, personally, respect it for it requires "Wolf in a sheep clothing" like clan players and a fool target/clan to make it worthwhile.

    Like stated by others don't let unknown players in during clan war and hope the other clans in your group are equally, if not more, smarter to do the same & don't let in unknown players in during Clan War League.
