Tips to win almost every Clan War

What is your clan’s win ratio in the last 10 Clan Wars? We had some problems in our Clan and put some effort into improving our ratio, which was below 50% won Clan Wars. You’ll want to avoid losing streaks, paltry loot bonus’ will scare off members and lead to low participation rates, which quickly spirals into even more lost clan wars. In order to make a real profit from Clan Wars, you should win lots of them because each Clan War costs tons of Elixir. Below is the result of my clan after some improvements:


Disclaimer: Please mind that I reworked this post after having lots of more additional tips regarding Clan Wars. I really want to include them here so also have a look at the posts I recommend inside this post.

Improvements during the Preparation Day of Clan Wars

The first things to mind are actually something to take care BEFORE you start the Preparation Day. The most important things are:

  • Starting your Clan War at the best time
  • Knowing how you can get a better matching Clan for a fair Clan War battle

Both guides can be found here:

With those strategies in mind, you’ll be able to set a great foundation to have a successful Clan War.

The Base Layout

Simply taking your trophy base is not enough – you will need a proper war base layout in Clan War.

The internet is full of bases that claim to be great war bases, but in fact like 90% of them are just trophy bases that won’t be good fits for a Clan War – what you need is a proper Anti 3-Star Base.

I have gathered my favorite ones here:

Max your Clan Castle potential!

Your Clan Castle is your most powerful building so always have it in the center and filled with the best troops for defending. Lots of people in my clan did not really understand the difference between troop donations to the Clan Castle via the clan chat and the War Castle with troops that will defend your War Base during Clan War. I recommend using either Witches, Wizards or Dragons and compliment with Archers. Don’t hesitate to release troops you don’t like and be clear with your preferred troops. You have to edit the standard “I need reinforcement troops” text. If you want to have a look at this post about defending Clan Castle troops you can read it here.

Using Hog Rider to pull enemy CC Troops

Organize before Battle Day!

Here is where we got most of our improvement. You have to have a Feeder Clan where inactive or lower level clan mates are staying so everyone in the Clan War clan is active. Also, try to build those players up before accepting them in your Clan War clan and don’t cold-accept them.

This is also a good way to prevent espionage from your current enemy clan. Also, I’d like to point out three very essential rules for Battle Day:

  1. Weaker players should attack during the first 12 hours and the stronger players in the send part of the Battle Day. The weak players should have first dibs on your opponents’ weaker players to max their star potential.
  2. Bottom to Top in Clan Wars: Never start fighting the best 3 to 10 opponent bases (depending on how big the Clan War is regarding 15 vs 15 players or 50 vs 50 players). For regular Clan Wars, it is enough if 80% of the bases get destroyed to win and every star is equal – no place for playing the Hero here.
  3. DEMORALIZE! This is the best push we got in our clan: Tell everyone that the first attack should aim to get 3 stars. In this case, your enemy will lose faith in winning and maybe some players will not even attack with their expensive army because they think they don’t have a chance of winning anyways. Imagine you log in on Battle Day and your clan has 10% of the possible stars while the opponent clan already got 50%. You think that this is not working, but I promise you it will!

Use A Tool

Using a solid tool will boost your clan victory rate a lot – and there is a new tool that works great. It’s called ClashTrack and I also wrote a tutorial about all the tools there.

Clan Wars Battle Day tweaking

Always attack with a full army and have all Spells and Heroes with you. Nothing is more frustrating if you only got 90% because you told yourself you will not need the 2 Healing or Rage Spells.

Scout and watch Replays! If you see that an enemy War Base got destroyed for only 1 star from one of your clan mates check out the replay. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find where the Traps are and what troops are in the Clan Castle. Think about taking this base instead of a “fresh” and unknown base if you are not sure. Remember that a fresh base will have surprises for you while the other base has been exposed, which should help you to destroy it.
