Clan Games can have reward tiers that are hard to reach, but the best rewards are those at the higher tiers – here I have put together for you details how the Clan Games work plus a ton of tips how you can get the best out of it and how your clan will get the best result in Clan Games.
How Clan Games Work
Clan Games are, very basically, a bunch of challenges that will reward you clan points that will reward everyone in your clan with resources, gems and magical items, depending on how many of them you and your clanmates complete.
You won’t compete against other clans, you only compete against the time – the more challenges you and your clanmates complete, the higher your reward tier, simple as that.
So, when you click on the strongman’s camp, you will see a bunch of challenges available.
All of them are not only available to you exclusively, the same ones are also available to your clanmates.
You don’t need to be afraid that you can’t complete all of them, you clan mates with higher Town Halls Level will be able to complete challenges that you can’t complete – it’s all about working together as a team.
When you take a look at each of the challenges, you will see how many clan points they will reward to the clan pool and how much time you have to complete it to get the clan points for your clan.
In the case here, you would have 5 hours time to donate 100 housing space to your clanmates to get 50 clan points.
Once you press the “Start” button, you will get the challenge and your clan mates can’t start this very challenge.
Once you started a challenge, you can’t take another one, but you’ll be able to trash it if you see that you can’t finish it (for whatever reason).
Of course, when you trash a challenge you will not get any clan points no matter how much you have reached, so make sure to only take challenges that you’re able to complete!
Also, trashed challenges WILL NOT be available to your clanmates, they’re gone, so make sure to not just take an easy one that you might trash because maybe another clanmate would have completed it.
You’re not collecting the points yourself! All points that you earn and all the points that your clanmates earn will get put together in a pool that will determine how many rewards you will get (as a clan).
You will also be able to choose between multiple rewards, depending on the reward tier you’ve reached, but you need to have finished at least one single challenge during the Clan Game.
As you can see, there are 4 reward tiers and you will be able to choose ONE from EACH tier unlocked.
So, if your clan scored 7000 clan points at the end of this Clan Game, you will be able to choose from 3 rewards in total, one from Tier I, one from Tier II and one from Tier III (e.g. take 180k Gold, 20 Gems & 2 Resource Potions in the example above).
The prices do also change each time a new Clan Game starts and you can expect the very rare and extremely valuable books to be only available in the reward Tier 4+.
If you would like to learn more about the available magical items, I have been putting them together here in an article that teaches you all that you need to know about them:
Resource Rewards & Magical Items
The reward structure is always the same for every clan during that very Clan Game, so you will always get the same things you can choose at every reward tier.
This means every player will see the same potions & books at every tier but also the Gold, Elixir & Dark Elixir as well as Gems are the same, but the amount of resources change.
There are many theories about how the amount of Gold, Elixir & Dark Elixir is generated – the easy answer is it depends on your Clan Castle, or better said your Treasury limit.
As we all know the Treasury limit is always depending on your Town Hall Level (not your Clan Castle Level), so it depends indirectly from your Town Hall
It’s always something between 10%-50% of your Treasury limit.
Plan Your Rewards
It’s always important to plan ahead with the rewards. You can leave your reward from the Clan Games 7 days after the Clan Games finished until you need to pick it up (or, in case a new Clan Game starts earlier you need to collect them inorder to start).
This gives you the great opportunity to spend books & potions until you have enough space in your Clan Castle to collect them.
Let’s say you have a Book of Spells in your Clan Castle so you can’t collect another one – keeping your rewards uncollected until you have anough resources to start an upgrade, use the Book in your Clan Castle and then collect the rewards is a better way then selling books or not collecting them.
Clan Games Leaderboard
Many of you did ask me, how the game decided who will be on top of the Clan Games Leaderboard when multiple people have the same amount of clan points.
Well, first of all, it doesn’t matter if you are on the first or the 25th place there. Every player who did complete at least one single challenge will get the same reward as any other clanmate who participated.
The algorithm that determines who will be higher when multiple people have the same amount of points is this:
- Experience Level (the higher XP level will be higher in the board)
- Amount challenges done (fewer is better)
- Time it took to finish the challenges (fewer is better)
Find the Leechers
Every clan has a problem with members that only complete 1-2 challenges and get the full rewards – a frsutration for those member that always get all points.
You can now find out who those members are easily with CGLeech, a free tool:
Strategy To Get The Highest Reward Tier & Magical Items
As being said before, only the highest reward tiers offer the strong and powerful magical items and more resources and gems. Here are some simple strategies that you (and your clanmates) should use to get the highest reward tiers.
Patience & Motivation!
Don’t rush, there’s a maximum of points that you can contribute to the total clan pool!
No matter how many challenges you complete, only the score shown there is counted towards the pool. On one hand a motivation for your whole clan to take part but also disappointing for those who always perform good in challenges when half the clan is not taking part that will make the highest reward tier unaccessible for your clan.
Make sure that all of your clanmates take part and complete challenges!
It’s About The Team!
The rewards you get are determined by how many clan points your whole clan collects, not how many you finished!
A simple rule here is to not take challenges that are supposed to be done by lower level players – if you take the one that needs 15 Gold Mines to be destroyed as a TH11 and leave the TH8 in your clan the challenge to destroy 5 Eagle Artilleries you will see that your whole clan won’t reach the highest reward tier.
Simply choose those that you can do but leave the easy ones for the lower players.
There is no reason to be greedy, your whole clans’ reward depends on the reward tier and not how many points you personally got.
Mind Your Cap!
There’s a cap on how many points you can contribute to your clans’ total score.
If you are slightly below the maximum and take a challenge that will exceed that amount, the extra points are not counted.
Let’s say you have the cap of 500 and right now you have 480 points and take the last challenge that is worth 100 points, your score will show 500 after completing it and only 20 points will get added to your clans’ total score – you have just wasted 80 points that one of your clanmates could have contributed!
So always try to hit the cap as close as possible to not waste valuable challenges that your clanmates should finish 🙂
Hit It & Quit It
Sometimes you only see challenges that are pretty bad and none of your clan is picking them – so in order to progress for the team sacrifice your cooldown.
When you just finished a challenge and your army is training anyway, select an unpopular challenge and quit it. You will get the 10 minutes cooldown, but now a new challenge appears and when your army is trained you can pick a new challenge without any disadvantages 🙂
With every trashed challenge, it will add 10 minutes to the timer – the first one will give you 10 minutes cooldown, the thrid time youdo it 30 minutes until 60 minutes max – sodon’t do it too often, but it will help your clan (and therefor your own reward) a lot 🙂
You have the possibility to sell any magical items if you don’t want to use it.
You will get Gems for selling them:
- Potion: 25 Gems each
- Books: 50 Gems each
- Book of Everything: 100 Gems
So make sure to take that into account when choosing your rewards! Here you can see a perfect example where choosing Gems in Tier II would be a big mistake because the 2 Potions are worth 50 Gems when you decide to sell them:
If you take a challenge just to take it without being sure that you will finish it, you will waste power and time of your clan.
Clan Games are a game against the clock and if you take a challenge and trash it after a couple of hours again, you took your other clanmates the chance to finish that challenge and now they have less time to do it.
Also, if you trash or not complete a challenge, it will NOT be available to your clanmates again so don’t take the easy ones if you’re not sure that you will finish them!
Do! Not! Gem!
I know you will see several challenges there that you can easily do, but you’re having another active challenge right now.
Do not gem anything in order to finish a challenge to get another one before one of your clanmates take it! This is the wrong attitude for Clan Games.
It doesn’t matter who get the most points, all that matters is getting the most challenges done as a clan and if someone else takes a challenge and finishs it, no problem! The reward for you is the same, no matter if you or your clanmate finished the challenge 🙂
There will also be plenty of new challenges popping up, so you don’t have to be worried that you’re leaving out of fresh stuff to do.
