    I think we should have a better system so that we're not blind sided by wars. Under that system I already have one strike (because I have no elixir) and that is absolutely ridiculous. Lets not sap the fun out of the game.

    What about 2 in a row? Plus, you are kinda excused this time because the game JUST changed to be able to sit out. That, and you are usually there for them. We just have a few that are either NEVER there or only seem to pop up during normal game play, request troops, never donate, and just disappear.

    I also vote we have scheduled wars. Like Tuesday and Friday for example, it would make life easier for everyone. Knowing when war's coming would allow you plan accordingly.

    As far as the 2 war thing, it was just an idea. We all know who participates regularly and who doesn't. If we know someone won't be in the war, we can plan accordingly.

    That was my suggestion a while back...to have "War Days"

    Fridays are bad for me though, as Fri nights are sort of reserved....


    If you like Tue, maybe Tue/Sat? or Tue/Sun? (weekends are more free typically...)

    But timing the STARTS for our mornings/afternoons would work better than the wars that start at 11 pm, etc.

    IE: A war that starts at 11 pm means most of us don't even look at it until the next day sometime, and half the fight time is already over while we slept.....

    ....And, a lot of us only have ~ 12 hours of being awake, total, to fight/be there to send troops, etc.

    If it starts at noon for example, we'd have two calendar days to fight...and be more likely to catch the beginning and end at least....instead of waking up to see that we we went from being ahead 35 - 12 when we went to sleep, to having lost 35 - 39, etc....w/o knowing we needed a few more attacks to hold the lead, etc.


    Almost every war lost, has been us ahead, and then losing overnight. :D



    We could see if there's a consensus for what war days make the most sense.

    Back to back can kill the 'lixer pretty bad...so, SOME time between might be a good idea.

    Also, the known days make the timing of upgrades less painful. For example, esp for the upper people, a cannon or a top troop or a royal, can take WEEKS to upgrade. The ROYALS are probably the main limit though, as the others at least are still available, at the pre-upgrade level....but Kingy is gone until he wakes up again, etc.


    Mine are all maxxed already, but, others need time to do theirs. That means we might ALSO decide to do some Royalty Breaks...so people can let longer upgrades run w/o being short on attack power for the wars. (Its bad enough dealing with raids...)



    Food for thought.

    I agree with TJ; tue/sat would work best for me personally. We also need to do something about inactive members. With being able to sit out wars now there is no excuse for not participating in a war if you choose to be active.

    There is at least one member that pops on to request high level troops during wars and use them for personal gain not to help out the clan. when this individual does attack they only use one of they two they are alloted for the war; this bugs me more than anything. The one member that does this on a regular basis and does not communicate in any way that I know of.

    I'm not in your clan of course, but have been playing the game since it started. Have found that dedicated war days are best. That way everyone knows that every Tuesday and Saturday are war days (or any combination). This way at the very least you dont have people not participate and say they didn't know there was a war.

    Good luck...

    Yes plove... Does ANYONE know him? Is he even on this board? Does he even own an X? Is he/she even a real person? I have seen it say "hey guys" 1 time. Other than that, only requests for troops.

    He was active during the last war, but not this one yet. He's never responded to anyone asking him about himself.

    When he set the request he said he has an Xterra.

    Well if that's how it is then I vote for the boot as well.

    I mainly wanted to come to the topic to see if anyone has any good base designed for a TH8. I know someone said something about it the other day but it's buried under hundreds of messages now. Perhaps it was the Meeeeee account??

    I also remember him mentioning a 2nd gen X in his join request, and, he did do both attacks in the war before this one.

    He has NOT, ever, responded to any inquiries as to who he is, etc.....but he HAS participated in the wars, except the last one.

    He DOES donate troops, maybe not as many as some (I'm at 2,085 so far, for this 2 week period, P-Love was at 47), but Rebel was at 40, maillet at 39, guac at 17, etc...so, P-love is not THAT far out.



    I'm on the fence on him, because of his participation vs his anonymity.

    I say we put an ultimatum in the clan thread (On our COC chat), repeatedly for a week asking him for info/saying we will be booting him unless he goes to THIS thread and signs in.

    I think that ultimatum would most likely be the best option tj. Since it gives him a choice of posting up info on here or her might just leave the clan willingly but I would suggest that the ultimatum should come from an elder or drb as clan leader and not just a member

    I agree. As elders, we should be the ones to say something.

    I concur with your reasoning.

    LOL

    I have my base(s) calibrated (calibrating) to get as many 40% raids as possible, so that I get the win, stay in the Champions League (Over 3,200 trophies) where I get the best payouts/bonuses, and, still get a 12 hr shield.

    That means I tend to get raided MANY times per day, because in reality, some of those 40% are 38%, so, I was raided, won/got trophies, but some traps were sprung, bows and towers discharged, royals are asleep, castle's empty, etc....when the NEXT raid hits 5 minutes later.


    THAT all means that I might request troops all the time, at all hours....or, have an empty castle when the next raid hits.

    So, YES, Level 3 Archers are not as wonderful as L4 Dragons for example, BUT, I'd rather HAVE L3 Archers NOW, BEFORE the raid, than a Dragon after I've already been raided with an empty castle.

    :D



    I STILL get raided with an empty castle, a LOT. I do sleep sometimes, and, there;s this pesky annoyance called "work" that really interferes with my life...so, hitting the request button every so often is not always an option.

    But, overall, the system does work so far, because I get a LOT of trophies for defensive wins, maybe anywhere from 16 - 30, so if they don't star me, I get a good payout. If I have a defensive LOSS, I tend to only lose 1 - 10 trophies, so, even if I lose 2 -3 and win 1, I STILL end up with more trophies at the end of the day.

    If I get TOO MANY trophies, the attackers the game sends are progressively stronger, so, I get starred more often than before, and, it automatically means I drop down to where the 40% attacks work again, etc.


    I find now that my walls are stronger, I get a LOT of aerial attacks...loons/minions/drags, for example...and the barbs, giants, hogs and PEKKA, etc, in the castle just ignore them. Wiz and ARCHERS, for example, shoot UP/drags and mins...and CAN dogfight flying things...so, those shoot-up/shoot-down options tend to help the most.



    So, yeah, I LOVE your adorable wee L3 Archers.


    :luv:

    I wouldn't use this as a factor. I think the troop donation counter is the most inaccruate thing on CoC. I've donated far more than 40.
