    guys, question

    you all know im on TH9, as the war matchmaking has changed so much

    i've been holding off building the 2 Xbows untill last

    From what I've read the Xbows carry a heavy 'war weight' which could mean you get matched with higher clans.

    Clan Wars Etiquette?

    Very confused. Previously in a clan where the leader threatened to boot you if you played other than the recommended targets.

    Yesterday evening, in another clan, got a 33% kicking on the recommended target and was told I should have gone lower. Threatened with the boot at which point I exercised the revolver option rather than wait for the firing squad.

    So anyone in a team that does battle regularly, what are your thoughts on this? It's a shame as good teams that speak English and battle fairly regularly are hard to find and this one did have promise. There's far too many dead teams or those consisting of two members and it takes ages to wade through and find a decent one. My level is still too low to join the OCUK one...

    You're welcome to join the OCUK clan. I'll just lower the joining requirements temporarily. We war regularly and usually have a plan for first attacks (e.g. Opposite number, 1 or 2 below your number). 2nd attacks is usually a case of clearing up remaining stars and using your common sense. Towards the end of the war we sometimes assign targets.

    Even if you were to persistently not follow instructions you wouldn't be kicked, just excluded from further wars.

    The clan is pretty easy going anyway, we war regularly but at the same time we're not completely war obsessed. The main thing is you enjoy it.

    Let me know your player tag and I'll invite you. Otherwise let me have your trophy count and I'll lower the entry requirements.

    Jim :)

    Thanks Jimbo.

    My player tag is #8PLOP2GCL

    (I think that's an O as in Oscar rather than 0 as in Zero).

    My current medal count is 1994 with Town Hall Level 9 (early stages).

    My clan tends to be equal or recommended if lower for the first attack then lower if there are stars free first.

    Managed 2 stars on my first battle for the clan, will do the second later.

    I find it very hard to counter dragons and balloons, as you need to keep relatively fragile archers and wizards to shoot them down, but once in range of the ground defences they're gone.

    What TH are you? Once you're in QW range it becomes easier to take out the CC.

    Alternatively, you can put a double poison down and just keep a couple of archers spawning to keep them inside it. The double poison alone will kill both.

    I'm Level 9 TH.

    I'll try that re the Clan Castle, I didn't realise you could keep them from attacking via poison, even if it gets you a 2 star instead of 1 star victory worth a shot.

    One other quick question, is there any way of holding back donated troops specifically for the war base? It seems pointless having extra troops which come out during a normal MP attack 10 minutes before you go to war, when you specifically want them for the campaign? Or is it down to blind luck?

    I've just gone to TH11... Still looking for a reliable layout for my day to day gaming plus a decent war base. Not having much luck with what I've found so far :(

    In my experience if someone gets matched from a higher level, they run through you like butter regardless of how you position the defences. The matching used to be fair but now it is getting as ridiculous as Samurai Siege where no skill or honour is required, just a resource smash and grab.

    My current layout seems to be 50/50 at the moment. I'm naturally sitting around 3000 trophies (give or take a hundred or so) without putting in too much effort. I know what you mean though, I go to work and come home to find ive been relieved of 400k of each... a littel depressing at times lol.

    I've noticed quite a few medal dumps on me as well recently, though I have indulged it myself from time to time - usually when farming resources. Now I've got a Queen and the witches they are quite useful at grabbing 200 - 300k gold and elixir from poorly defended bases, without incurring too much cost to replace your troops. Why can't Clash be like Boom Beach where any surviving troops, you take home.

    On another matter, with regard to having joined the OCUK clan, got a feeling it is operating somewhat above my pay grade. Haven't really got a high enough base (or troops to donate ;):rolleyes:) to make a really useful contribution. I'll see how it goes but might be better if I was to look for a group more my level (not easy) and perhaps come back in 12 months when I've levelled a bit more?
