    Questions about Clan Wars

    Pats vid says if a player is in a clan and leaves for another he'll have a cooldown period before he can go to war with the new clan, how long is the cooldown? Also if a clan is at war and a new member joins who hasn't been involved in a recent war can he participate in an on going war? Or will the player be locked out. Also, what if a player is involved in a war, leaves the clan and then returns. Can he continue to participate?

    Can only the leader of a clan initiate a war, or co-leads as well? Does the leader/co-leader have to get a certain number of clan members to click a confirmation button of some sort showing they want to participate, or does the leader just start a war and hope the clan participates?

    Once a war ends do the clans participating in it have a cooldown (similar to a player leaving a clan at war for another clan) or can the leaders immediately look for a match for another war?

    If a player is upgrading his defenses normally, and a war starts will his village in the clan war have defenses offline or will they be working in the clan war only? (This could be a huge participation killer in farming clans if you are at a disadvantage in a clan war due to defenses upgrading.)

    Is there a minimum town hall level to participating in a Clan War? Would a clan full of TH2s be able to initiate a war against other clans full of TH2s?

    Pat's video says defenders don't lose resources, they will be generated. What kind of loot will be involved for the attacker? Will it be as if the defenders storages are full to capacity, or 1/2 or some percentage?

    How many Attacks do we start off with, anyone know?
    Quote Originally Posted by Anarchos View Post

    Once the match making finds you a suitable clan to war with, will you be able to hit next and skip it like in normal match making? I mean, can you keep searching until you find a clan you want to clash with?
    Quote Originally Posted by SuperSteve[Supercell] View Post

    Will the matchmaking take into account stats like gold grab and heroic heist? I'm not saying it should, as I'm looking forward to clashes between top farming clans and top cup (gemming?) clans, but just curious if the means by which players have developed their base is taken into account.
    Quote Originally Posted by SuperSteve[Supercell] View Post

    Will the leader/co-leader be able to determine which clan mates will participate in the war? For example, can they exclude inactive members or low level visitors?
    Quote Originally Posted by SuperSteve[Supercell] View Post

    ---SC UPDATE---
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    Will the war base persist from one war to the next (not between the 2 battles, but from one 2-day war to the next), giving you the chance to stick with it or overwrite it with the current village base? Unless there are enhancements to the village edit mode to save/load different base configs, it will be a pita to have to keep changing between farming and war bases. Hybrids are always a compromise.
    Quote Originally Posted by SuperSteve[Supercell] View Post
    Agreed, a huge pita. We hope to work out village edit mode saving in the near future, though we cannot promise that for the next update yet. We realize it makes tons of sense now and would have preferred to have it in before this came out, just wasn't in the cards. Your war base will not persist to the following clan war, so for now, you will have to reconfigure it again if you make changes after you save the war layout.
    How does the matchmaking work? We know it's based of TH level, hero level, weapons levels, and wall levels, but is everyone in the clan weighed the same? Or is it like in trophies, your top 10 players make 50% of your clans total? Also do any of the matchmaking tools (TH, hero, weapons, walls) get weighed more heavily than the others?
    Quote Originally Posted by SuperSteve[Supercell] View Post

    - Hero levels
    - Town hall levels
    - Weapons (Defences I presume)
    - Walls
    - Number of players
    I can't get more specific than that. Perhaps we'll provide additional information on matchmaking in the future, but I cannot be sure at this point.
    What if some of the strongest bases in clan are inactive, will still be selected? And then since they're inactive what type of layout would an inactive member have? and those that don't want to do clan wars are they forced into it? Because they may have the strongest base, but just prefer to farm or cup hunt?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

The amount chosen will depend on your starting clan member count and your opponents (to the nearest 5, rounded down, excluding uneligable players from clan hopping). the ones chosen are then based on trophy count, so if you have anyone going inactive they need to drop trophy count. Anyone not chosen will become a spectator instead.
    Is it true only the top 30 bases in a clan will be able to be attacked/participate?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    Is there a reward for the winning clan?

    Will there now be "save layout" options for switching between your "clan base" and regular base?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    When will this be released?

    What happens if you kick someone out during a war.
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    How will the "strongest base/most trophies work?" What if say I am farming and I am say 17th in clan for trophies, if I am th7 and another person is Th10 but has awful defenses, and lvl walls? Will I be selected over the TH10?

    How do we farm during a clan war?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    What happens if the war ends and both clans have the same number of stars?

    During matchmaking can we manually select a clan to war with or is it automatically done?

    Is there a minimum number of members a clan needs to participate in a war?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    Will there be a clan war leaderboard showing clans or individuals that have excelled in wars?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    What happens if a clan starts a war, a players base is locked in, and they are kicked from the clan or leave?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    Can a clan declare war on another clan of their choosing?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

    Youtube videos show you can deposit troops in a clan members CC on the clan war page. Is this the same CC as your out of CW CC? Or is it a copy?
    Quote Originally Posted by Sneakydave View Post

Any chance a mod or CM could give a little insight to the answers? :-D

    thanks in advance!
    this is sums up just about most questions surrounding cw, some of these were partially answered in the vids, so instead of adding those, I hope to hear from someone with concrete knowledge, good post

    Thanks guys, hopefully someone like Marika or Steve can help shed some light on the answers. Or Patrick and Daddy if they have the answers from their time in Helsinki.

    I've wanted to know about #4 as well, considering I started an inferno tower upgrade only three days ago…

    leader and co-leader

    I don't know, i don't think so though

    You can lose resources but it is a LOT less than in normal game play - I recall about 1/3 to 1/4 of normal loot

    Hope that helps, SC will have a FAQ out soon by the way.

    Defences are likely to be as they are when the base is locked in so if they are upgrading they are not active, i'm 99% sure of that

    Clan Wars Video

    Here are some of my thoughts on Clan Wars

    There is no cooldown between Clan Wars!

    4.) If a player is upgrading his defenses normally, and a war starts will his village in the clan war have defenses offline or will they be working in the clan war only?

    Thanks a lot Daddy, appreciate it. I'll for sure check out the FAQ once it's released.



    i am pretty bummed with the answer to #4 if it's how it really is. I understand if you're upgrading defenses and you get raided then that's the way it is because you chose to upgrade and your punishment is trophies and or loot. However when it comes down to the fact everyone needs to upgrade defenses, and your defenses being offline hurt your clan, you would hope that defenses being upgraded would function during a clan war, just not during a normal raid. It is something that can probably turn a lot of people off from participating with their clan, due to the fact if they have xbows or infernos or whatever being upgraded it can give the opposing clan a leg up on your base.
