How Clan Games Work & How To Win Clan Games (Highest Reward Tier) – COC
The Strongman has arrived with his Clan Games, a new ongoing mode that will reward every clan for working together completing challenges with resources, gems and even the extremely powerful magical items. In this article, I will tell you how the Clan Games work and also how your clan will be able to reach the highest reward tier.
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 on 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:
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.
Exceed Your Cap!
There’s a cap of how many points you can contribute to your clans’ total score, but there’s also a workaround.
If you are slightly below the maximum and take a challenge that will exceed that amount, the extra points are still counted, although not shown.
Let’s say you have the cap of 500 and right now you have 480 points and take a last challenge that is worth 100 points, your score will show 500 after completing it but in total the full 100 points will get added to your clans’ total score – you have contributed 580 points but it’s not shown!
So always try to get close to the cap and then take the last challenge that has a lot of points as reward to make as many points as possible 🙂
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: 100 Gems each
- Book of Everything: 200 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.
