    Only thing I have seen suggested to date to possibly prevent, or at least curtail, CWL collisions (acknowledgement to 2222 for this idea): Blind CWL Matchups - All clans within group outside your own clan are generically identified (Clan A, Clan B, etc.), same for the players within the clan (Player A, Player B, etc.). Only after all 7 rounds are completed are the true clan names revealed.

    To collude, or even spy, on someone, you need to know who they are and how to contact them first. Simply take that indentification away.
    The spying part of what you said, made me think, they could just leave their clans to anyone can join and visit each other. Even without names, they could figure it out. Then close the clan before many others notice.

    They could set a time to open their clans, not at the beginning of CWL. People would be very unlikely to notice that.

    I think we just have to accept it will happen and hope that SC's built in delays to prevent collusion work most of the time.

    It's annoying for sure, and I wish it didn't happen. They will get a handful of more medals than normal.

    Will it actually affect the outcome of the standings when it comes to promotion/demotion? If not, then does it really matter?

    In our current league, 3rd place is 50 stars below us, and first place is 16 stars above us. I think the overall ranking in our league is set in stone and the two strongest teams will get promoted regardless, but I'm hoping we can beat #1 today to go 7-0 for the season.

    Speaking of pints... have you had a couple Ajax?

    As to the topic at hand - we had 2 clans do this in season 1 of the CWL. Both clans failed to advance as they didn't play particularly well the rest of the days. That being said, if they DID happen to move up, it's unlikely that they match in the same group a 2nd consecutive season and would likely lose and be demoted if they don't belong in the higher league.

    Super Cell has stated that they fill multiple groups at the same time when clans are searching, so if two clans search at the same time they aren't necessarily going to be grouped together. (don't ask me where, I'm not going to go look lol).

    I think it would help if placement was based on wins first, not total stars.

    In season 2 for us, there was a 4-way or 5-way tie where the clans went 5-2 for the season, and it was decided by stars. I think stars is fine.

    In season 1 my secondary clan went 7-0 and took 3rd. Turns out we probably belong in Master 3, not Master 2. Season 2 and 3 we've ended up right in the rank 3-5 range and feel pretty competitive, even if we are outmatched at the TH12 level by 6 or 7.

    what are the odds that they were actually able to get in the same CWL?

    seems unlikely to me

    Simple fix for this would be don't let people change their base. The base is the same across the entire CWL week. Also don't let CC change. You fill the CC for the first match and that carries throughout the week.

    Not so simple actually.... People would get around this by simply swapping out players.
