Hello everyone! Welcome to my newest thread containing my ideas for Fast Clan Transferring and Sister Clan Designation, or simply, Clan Features. Throughout this thread, I'll go into a ton of detail, clearly explaining this feature, how it will look with the pictures I have created, and how this idea will make Clashing easier for almost every player in the game.
Just like my first thread (The Volcano Mage), this thread is long! Longer than the first significantly, due to the amount of pictures. For those who don't like to read, just take a look at the pictures. For those that have some time, I hope you enjoy this as I've spent a couple of weeks making this thread. And as those who have read my first thread know, when I make a suggestion I put in as much detail as possible.
This idea/feature request, rather than being a major game-changing update, is more of an idea that makes the Clash experience much more streamlined and connected, as well as being simpler to use and navigate.
Now, with all of that out of the way, let's get started!
A lot of us have been there before – whether we have friends who play the game and want to join their clan, but without having to go through the hassle of re-joining your clan and being re-promoted in your clan, or we are a leader of an entire group of sister/feeder clans and want to switch easily between them, or if we simply want to visit an old clan! Shouldn't there be an easier way of doing this?
I browse through these forums a lot, and I've played since August. I hear players in game and on these message boards. I've learned what people want, and heard what people complain about. Here are some things I've seen consistently since I've been playing, and issues that my idea will address:
- New way of designating sister and feeder clans
- Easier way to join clans temporarily without having to lose donations and rank
- Easier way to join clans temporarily then switch back without having to be invited (If your clan is closed or Invite Only)
- Way of transferring people between sister/feeder clans
- Faster way of sending important information between sister and feeder clans
- More reasons to join and stay in a clan
So how can all that be addressed? My idea for Easy Clan Transferring and Designated Sister/Feeder Clans could be the answer to these issues.
Part 1: Introducing Fast Clan Transferring
Oh hey! I'm glad you're here - there's a new feature I'd like to show you, and it's called Fast Clan Transferring. Let's go view the clan \/ahalla to get started!
As you can see, there are two new visible buttons under the bookmark option. The first one looks like a green plus sign - when actually it will enable you to easily switch between your clan and \/ahalla! It's very easy to use. To get started, just press the button.
Oh, cool! The green plus sign turned into a green check mark. That means that you are now allowed to request to transfer to and from that clan!
Now, that clan will be added to a list of clans (maximum of 10) that you are now a "member" of. You can see these clans by looking in your Bookmarks section.
The "join" button on one of your secondary clans will still be grayed out, but that is only to warn you that you are still currently in a clan. If you press join, you will receive a pop-up, that will say:
You will not be sent out of your clan until you are accepted by the other clan, to prevent complications. Once that clan has accepted your request, you can now move freely between those clans, unless you are kicked out. In that case it would remove that clan from your membership and you must wait to join again in 24 hours; from there you will be sent back to your primary clan.
When you switch clans, your rank and # of donations from your original clan will disappear - until you return to that clan. (It still will reset like normal once the two-week league reset happens.) Upon transferring clans, you will not be eligible for war until 24 hours, however, if you left your clan during war, you can still transfer back and attack.
You may ask, what if I am the leader of a clan and I want to visit another clan for a while? Here's what will happen - first you will be taken to your main clan page.
You will be given a list of all the members in your clan, and now you can choose one of them to be temporary leader while you are gone away. Let's say you choose M3LLO.
When you return to your original clan, you will be given your spot of leader back and M3LLO will be demoted back to his original rank, which is in this case Co-Leader.
Finally, this is what it looks like when you are a member of a clan that you can transfer between (See Below). Notice how \/ahalla, one of your clans, now has a green checkmark next to it.
Part 2: Sister Clan Designation
Beneath the transfer button, you will see a symbol that looks similar; it is still a green plus but it has an image of a clan shield behind it. This button enables Clan leaders to request a partnership with another clan.
This feature, which I like to call "Sister Clan Designation", is very simple. To designate a sister clan, you will press that button. When you tap it, you will be taken to your Bookmarks section, except it looks a little bit different now.
From here, all you have to do is press that "New" button at the top and search for the clan you want to partner with - make sure you get the right clan! In this case, let's say I picked the clan \/alhalla.
Only the leader can designate a sister clan, and only the leader can accept a sister clan request. The image above shows how it would look when you want to confirm a request for a partnership between clans. Oh, wait, you just got a request from \/ahalla to become their sister clan! Do you want to accept?
If you, the leader, accept that request, \/ahalla will now show up under the "New" bar seen when you click the sister clan button. You can designate a maximum of 9 more sister clans, (to make 10 total) and they will all show up here, ranked in order of highest trophies to lowest trophies - great for clan-wide trophy pushing!
Next to your sister clans, there is a red X button. This is for you to use if you want to break the partnership between the sister clan. Oh, wait, why are you pressing it?
Oh, good, it was just a mistake hahaha - you're sister clans still, and hey, now that you're sister clans, you have some cool new abilities!
First off, you can transfer a clan member to a sister clan! Just tap their name and press "transfer" which is located under "kick out". You can even view your sister clans' war logs to see how well they are doing, and can watch how their current war is going, viewing live attacks and everything!

Thank you SO much for reading this thread about my Clan Features ideas! If you read all of it, I really appreciate it as it took quite some time to finalize all of this! Before you go, check out my other threads:
Supercell is a great company and always takes into account people's suggestions, so I believe if this thread gets enough support these two Clan Features could end up in the game. I'd love to hear what SC thinks about this idea.
Special thanks to Mastermind for the inspiration on the layout of this thread, (Check out his Daily Quests idea if you haven't already) and NioTheDreamer, leader of \/alhalla. Finally, I'd also like to thank everyone who likes this idea and gives me suggestions on how to improve upon it, including TheGreatLach and Daddy for their support on this idea.
Here is how you can help! I'd love to hear your comments, opinions, suggestions, and questions as I can always improve upon this idea. Here are some things that would be great to comment on:
- Explain why you like or dislike this idea
- Ideas for small improvements I could make to make this feature more usable
- Any questions you have that you may not understand or I can explain better
- Ideas for additions I can make to this idea
Thanks for reading and happy clashing, everyone!
