    Maybe we'll be hoping for another QoL:
    We can't get in to our opponent clan (which we are match against either in normal wars or the whole 7 other clans in cwl)... In this way, at least we can prevent spy. Although, people can just use another account from other clans/no clan to infiltrate their war opponents.

    You have 5 slots available for bases as most people only need 1 farm base. 5 in 7 days should get your through.

    You said yourself you can't prove anyone cheated. You lost and that's why your here, had you swept and moved on you would not be posting. Cheating is rampant in this game, always has been always will be especially with the new money on the line. But if you can't prove it...

    u do realize that people can record their attacks & share it on other platforms right?
    and for those saying its colluding is laughable. colluding is, when 2 clans give each other fwa bases to gain easy stars thus hurting other clans in star rankings. what the OP is stating is not colluding, its spying like providing information about bases/traps to other clans.

    unfortunately spying cant be prevented no matter what SC does in game, as spying can be done outside of the game.

    Agreed about the layouts, but people shouldn't have the need to go through that - hence my suggestions about the additional layouts.

    And no, I'm not the type of guy you are trying to make me look like. We ended up third. And I was voicing this for quite a while, plus I strongly disagree that a company that is trying to bring Clash of Clans to ESL level should allow any of this...

    Yes, I understand that as you surely must have seen if you read my post in its entirety. That I agree very little can be done about. There are, however, ways to at least make it harder for the clans, because as right now, it's way too easy.

    Anonymity or "replays only available to war participants" or agressive war base changing (extra base designs) are 3 different ways to solve the problem.

    Ahh yes I guess that's quite a bit different, is this against TOS now?

    Just a thought. But are you quite sure they got their heads together to win.
    Since they finished first and second, is it not possible that they simply know their stuff.

    I suppose SC could code lots of stuff to aid prevention. The fact that they openly dismiss spying suggests they arent likely to do anything real soon.
    Switch bases around if you feel the need. Or relax and take cwl one day at a time.

    Yes, I too would prefer CWL-Replays to be only visible to folks on the CWL roster until CWL is over.
    However, I do understand that the quick solution given, was the additional war base slots. And I do change my war base during the CWL week.
    Spying against yourself in CW is due to letting folks in. Yes, there are some very sophisticated clans and you can run into spies sometimes even if you are careful. Running non stop CW should not prevent your clan from recruiting.
    Yet in CWL you cannot prevent spying against you, as you have no control over what other clans you already faced off with will do.

    @OP: For now either change your bases, or your players, or at least have folks change trap positioning. It'll help.

    Have Fun

    its not "very little can be done" its "nothing can be done". most high level clans hav discord or other platforms. they dont even need to know opponent clan names, they can find out it on the net through clantags. there is no way SC can do anything about it. expecting otherwise would be a time waste. i would rather hav SC work on good content than to try to fix something which cannot be.

    if you are talking about casual clans doing it in lower leagues, by hopping clans, then may be. but i dont think SC would worry about that. if you want to be competitive, change bases. as for gem costs, i dont think SC would lower them anytime soon.

    A low effort way to try to make it a little more difficult to do this is to radically change your traps in between battle days. If someone starts out with a qw in one area, move all your seeking air mines there for the next war, or whatever. (Don't be stupid about it of course. )

    Ah, yes.. A technicality.. Colluding isn't allowed, but I'm not sure it's actually in the ToS.
