- Clan War Leagues is a feature that was added in the Version 11 update on October 23rd, 2018.
- In War Leagues, groups of 8 clans compete against each other to progress through the leagues, as well as win rewards. The highest leagues offer the best rewards and show that the clans in them are the best of the best!
How Leagues Work
- Each League runs once per season, at roughly the same time as each other.
- Once every season, there will be a two-day League sign-up period, where Clans can sign up for the War Leagues.
- Once a Clan has signed up, they will be placed in a group with seven other Clans in the same league as the Clan is.
- After the group has been set, the War League begins, and lasts for eight days. The Clans will begin a round-robin tournament, where each Clan battles every opposing Clan once.
- At the end of the War League period, the best performing Clans in the group will be promoted to the next higher league, while the worst performing Clans will be demoted to the next lower league.
- Players receive League Medals as rewards for their participation in the War League, and these medals can be spent on various items.
- When the Clan War Leagues begin, there will be a two day sign-up period. During this period, the leader who enters the Clan into signing up must choose a roster of players who will enter the League. The roster must consist of at least 15 players, though the roster can include everyone in the Clan (i.e. 50 players), provided they are eligible for war.
- Anyone in the roster will be able to play in the War Leagues. Anyone outside the roster cannot participate in the War League (though they can still play an outside role, by for example donating troops for attacks in the League).
- During the sign-up period, regular Clan Wars will be unavailable, though ongoing wars can still continue. Clans in ongoing wars will not be able to sign up until the war is concluded.
- Once a Clan has signed up for the War Leagues, they are placed in the League they are in.
- Clans that sign up for the first time will be placed in a League based on the strength of the top 15 players in the roster. Depending on this strength, the Clans can be placed as high as Master League I.
- Clans that do not sign up for the War Leagues can still play regular Clan Wars and Friendly Wars during the War League period.
- Anyone not in a Clan's War League roster can participate in normal Clan Wars and Friendly Wars in another Clan. They can even join another Clan's roster so as long as that Clan has not yet signed up.
- Players in a Clan's roster can still participate in Clan Wars and Friendly Wars, but only in a Clan that did not sign up for the War Leagues. To do so, however, the player must leave their Clan and join the Clan doing the regular wars.
- Players can only be in one Clan's War League roster at any one time. Once they have been signed up by the leader for a particular Clan, their War League participation is only limited to that Clan. The player will only be eligible for War League rewards in the Clan he/she participates in.
The War League
- Each group in a War League consists of eight Clans.
- Each War League lasts for eight days, during which each Clan will participate in seven wars; one war against each opposing Clan.
- Once a group has been formed, preparation day for the first war begins.
- During each preparation day, two things are done:
- The leader chooses 15 members from the roster to enter the war;
- Participants can donate defensive Clan Castle troops to one another, like in a regular Clan War.
- Once a preparation day ends, the battle day for a war begins. At the same time, a new preparation day for the next war begins, unless all seven preparation days have passed.
- To summarise, a schedule for the War Leagues would be as follows:
- Day 1: preparation day for the 1st war;
- Day 2: preparation day for the 2nd war, and battle day for the 1st war;
- Day 3: preparation day for the 3rd war, and battle day for the 2nd war;
- ...and so on, until Day 8, where only battle day for the 7th war occurs.
- During each battle day in the War League, each player gets only one attack. This is in contrast to regular Clan Wars, where players can use two attacks.
- Aside from being in a league setting, Clans can still earn war loot and Clan XP in the same way as they do in a Clan War. Players can earn war loot that they've won even if they leave the Clan before the relevant war concludes.
- Clans compete to obtain the most stars, as that is the first criteria for rankings in the league. Aside from stars obtained normally, clans will receive a 10-star bonus for winning a war.
- During a League, anyone can view the standings of each clan in the League under "Group", and also the scores of each war in "Rounds", including those wars involving other clans.
- Under the "Clan" tab, players can view the statistics of how each member in the roster performed so far in the league, breaking down the number of stars collected by each member, the total destruction accrued, and the number of attacks completed.
- Players can navigate between the seven wars by seven buttons in the War League interface; each number corresponds to a war, in the order your Clan fights them in. There are three symbols that can appear on top of each number:
- A colored tick appears for each completed war. The tick is colored green if your clan won that war, red if your clan lost that war, and white (?) if your clan tied that war.
- A shield with a sword in front signifies a war in which a battle day is ongoing.
- A shield with a gear in front signifies a war in which a preparation day is ongoing.
- If a number has no symbol above it, it signifies an upcoming war where preparation day has not started yet.
- At the end of the War League, each clan will either remain in their own league, get promoted to the next higher league, or get demoted to the next lower league, based on their performance relative to others in their league.
- Clans are ranked by number of stars won (including bonus stars won by winning a war). If Clans have the same number of stars, then the tiebreaker would be the total destruction accrued throughout the course of the league.
- Depending on the league, the clans in the group with the most stars will be promoted to a higher league, while the clans in the group with the least stars will be demoted to a lower league. The table below illustrates how many clans are promoted and demoted from each league.
- While Clans may be "unranked" prior to joining a War League for the first time, once they have joined, they cannot be demoted from Bronze League III.
- Likewise, as Champion League I is the highest league, clans cannot be promoted from that league.
|War League(s)||Clans Promoted||Clans Demoted|
|Bronze I & Bronze II||3||2|
|Champion II - Silver III||2||2|
- Each player in each clan's roster receives League Medals depending on how they performed in the League. The players earn a certain number of Medals for every star earned in the League, in addition to a bonus awarded to everyone in the roster for each war win the clan earns.
- At the end of the War League, the Clan leader can choose to award bonuses of League Medals to players in the roster as he/she desires. The leader will have a base number of bonuses to award, and gains one more bonus to award for every war win. The number of bonuses, as well as the size of the bonus, depends on the League of the Clan they participated in.
- The leader has 21 days to choose the players that will be awarded the bonuses, and must award all the bonuses at the same time.
- Once the leader has decided, the players will be notified in Clan chat which players were awarded the bonuses.
- The bonuses can be awarded to anyone in the roster, even players who have left or were kicked out of the clan.
- The number of League Medals awarded for each win and each star are shown in the table below, as well as the size of bonuses and number of guaranteed bonuses that can be awarded by the leader is shown in the table below.
- League Medals awarded for each war win are awarded to all players in the roster.
- League Medals awarded for scoring stars are awarded only to the player scoring the stars.
- Note that leaders can award one extra bonus for every war win.
- When you finish reading the Clan War Leagues tutorial by the Villager, you'll be given 50 League Medals.
- After the tutorial, League Medals are obtained through the methods as explained above:
- By winning a war against another Clan in the group, or
- By scoring stars against players in the opposing clans, or
- By being awarded a bonus by the Clan leader.
- League Medals can be spent in a special section of the Home Village shop. They can be used to purchase various items, which are listed below. Some items, particularly the decorations, require the player's Clan to be a certain league in order to be unlocked.
- Players can only have up to 2,500 League Medals at a time. If the player earns any more, the excess will be converted into Gems; one Gem will be earned for every 10 medals in excess. This should be avoided, as players can buy a Resource Potion for 10 medals and then sell it for 10 gems (although this is not a good trade either).
