- Clash of Clans is available on iOS and Android, and can also be played on PC using Bluestacks if you have a Google account.
- To join, you will first need to rebuild your Clan Castle which is easily possible within the first week of playing without spending real money. You should do this as soon as you can anyway as it will greatly assist your progression in the game.
- Search for us by name or our Clan Tag.
- Identify your forum handle when you request to join if your chosen 'Chief' name is different.
- No-one expects you to join and start winning wars for us 15 minutes later. You will have plenty of time to figure things out, all the time you need.
- You should spend your first few days getting used to the game and trying out the single player (goblin) missions.
- Ignore prompts in the tutorial to spend gems except on the second builder. I consider the builder mandatory.
- Your base cannot be attacked in your first three days, unless you choose to attack first (goblin attacks do not affect your shield). If you are completely new, take it slowly.
- If you rush your Town Hall levels or rush into battle too soon, you WILL get raided all the time and picked clean and face an uphill struggle. You will also face SEVERE loot penalties relative to your TH level and be dead weight in the war. DO NOT RUSH YOUR TOWN HALL LEVEL, take things slowly.
- You can only be attacked while you are offline and destroyed buildings snap back as soon as you log in.
- When you get raided it's not the end of the world, everyone gets raided. The game has an awesome feature - 'Revenge' - pick the right moment and you can take back what was stolen from you, and with any luck even more! Revengers cannot be revenged in return so all your opponent can do is QQ and FML about his terribad choices in life. This is the only time outside of war you can scout a base before raiding it. Use it to your advantage.
- Your biggest losses will always be in uncollected resources, which can easily be made up (and more) in a single 3-minute raid against the right opponent.
- Build your base, build your defences, raise your army, request reinforcements from us, crush your opponents, burn your invaders.
WHAT YOU STAND TO LOSE WHEN ATTACKED
- As above, all you can lose in a raid is resources, nothing else

- Gems are the ENTIRELY OPTIONAL pay-for part of the game
- You are given 500 free to begin with (although you should spend 250 on another builder as the tutorial insists, ignore the nags to spend on anything else)
- Rather than pay real money for them, you can earn more by completing achievements and clearing the recurring obstacles in your base.
- The best way to spend them is far and away on builders till you have the maximum of five. (1, free; 2, 250; 3, 500; 4, 1000; 5, 2000)
- In my opinion the game is well worth the £3.99 spend on a third builder at the start, but you can just wait and collect the gems instead (probably 3-4 weeks for another 250 gems)
- 'Boosting' the Barracks is a great use of gems if you're not saving for builders. Over Christmas boosts cost only 1 gem. This quadruples Barracks production. Higher production = more raids = more loot.
BAD WAYS OF SPENDING GEMS:
- Rushing your Town Hall level. Do not rush your TH. I cannot over-emphasise how catastrophic a move rushing your TH is.
- Buying shields: Want a shield? Leave your Town Hall outside your walls out of range of your defences and log off. Five minutes later when the first trophy hunter raids your base he will destroy only your TH and give you a 12-hour shield for a measly 5-10 trophies and an insignificant 1,000 resource.
- Buying resources: Steal them from other players don't pay for them. The gem prices are extortionate.
- Using 'REQUEST NOW' on your Clan Castle immediately after splurging your reinforcements on your first raid. This is incredibly expensive, just wait the 20 minutes.
- Speeding up upgrades. A bit debatable this one. Time costs the same on any building. The longer an upgrade takes the more it costs to finish it immediately. It's useful if you desperately want an upgrade in time for war or something, but really you should just wait unless it's only 10 gems or something, which will be under an hour so you're still better waiting.
- Boosting mines/collectors the return is not worth the spend. The Dark Elixir drill does give a slightly better return owing to the scarcity, but all resource is still better stolen.
- In short, anything that can be got another way, should be got the other way, not via gems.
- We are a warring Clan, if you just want to farm, this is most likely not the clan for you.
- War Search begins every Friday at 9pm for now.
- When an opponent is matched a 24 hour clock counts down preparation day.
- On preparation day, our highest level Chiefs, reinforce all of our bases, and we can scout our opponents' bases.
- In the subsequent 24 hours Chiefs are free to use their two 3-minute attacks whenever they choose. (circa 9pm Saturday - 9pm Sunday)
- Each Chief is allowed two attacks only which must be used on different opponents.
- The aim is to completely destroy the opponents' bases and win stars, whoever has the most stars wins the war - and the most loot.
- War Chiefs are matched in multiples of 5. If the clan is not a multiple of five, the game automatically selects the highest multiple available from the Clan roster based on who has the most trophies when the search for an opponent is started.
- You MUST request reinforcements before you attack, otherwise you will be utterly disadvantaged and will most likely lose as a result.
- We will not take you to war if you have rushed your Town Hall. This is effectively a 3 to 9-star handicap before the war even starts - wars can be won or lost on a single star. Further to that it will completely skew the match-up in favour of the opponent if they have no TH rushers. Do not rush your TH, have I mentioned that already?
BASIC WAR TACTICS:
- Read the clan chat/clan mail. Don't just blunder in and faceplant on any old base you fancy.
- Come loaded for bear. Best troops, best spells, REQUEST REINFORCEMENTS.
- Ideally you should first attack your opposite number on the war map, unless they have ninja upgraded on prep day and you are outmatched, or the game has balanced the overall clan matchup in such a way that means your are facing a higher TH opponent.
- Second attacks should be saved to clean up missed stars.
- First priority is the enemy Clan Castle, bait out the reinforcements and destroy them (surround with archers/use lightning/Dragon)
- Your resources are not in play in the war. All you stand to lose is the resource you spend on your two raids.
- Resource rewards are a fixed amount based on the strength of base you raided against your own relative strength.
- Win the war to receive the full resources bonus at the end. 50% for a draw. 30% for a loss.
INTERMEDIATE ZONE: TROPHY ABUSE
- Trophy abuse is easily the best way of efficiently farming resources through raids.
- The amount of trophies you have dictates who you can raid and be raided by.
- If you push as high as you can in trophies you will face tougher bases and most likely take away less resources.
- However if you fail a raid, you lose trophies.
- Fail enough raids, deliberately, and you will significantly outmatch the majority of the bases you face.
- This can be done by placing a single unit in the field and immediately surrendering (Heroes are great here as they cost nothing to deploy) .
- When you've dropped enough trophies, you can then raid bases using only the cheapest of troops and gain huge amounts of resource for very little spend.
- Use 'boost' on your barracks and you can easily expect 1,000,000 gold/elixir within an hour with very little effort, in back-to-back raids with Tier 1 troops. (Tip: An army made up of 2:1 Archer:Barbarian 'barch' works well in most situations)
- It's incredibly easy to pick the trophy level you want to raid this way, find a sweet spot for your strength of army and clean up.
INTERMEDIATE ZONE: GOOD PRACTICES
- Try to leave as little loot in your base as you can. No loot = no invasion. Empty your collectors at least once a day and spend resources
- Your builders should constantly be busy unless you are upgrading walls. If they are running out of things to upgrade, time to do the Town Hall.
- Time your TH upgrades to finish with your final base upgrades for that level. You don't want to be sitting for days with your loot maxed out waiting on your TH to finish
- Personally, I always leave my TH outside the walls (not including in the WAR - terrible idea there - free win for your opponent). This means every time I am raided I get a 12-hour shield no matter what else they take. The worst situation to be in is to have all of your collectors taken out and only 39% (or less) of your base destroyed. 39% = no shield. A couple of these types of raid back-to-back will be pretty severe losses if your base is loaded with loot. I can make up a single raid in minutes, even if they wipe my entire base (at TH7 this would require a raid costing 300,000-400,000 elixir, or a TH9 raider who would suffer a 50% loot penalty). Needless to say this happens very rarely, normally I only lose my TH.
- Always upgrade your army first. Camps > Laboratory upgrades > Clan Castle> Barracks > Spell Factory. Stronger army = more loot.
