How to make the best clan in clash of clans: Tips to making a great clan–secrets revealed

So many try to make their own clan. Many try several times. Most fail. Why? To put it simply, it is not easy!!! It takes a lot of work, careful planning, and a good team around you. So many have asked me what the secret is. Here are my clan making tips.

  1. Get a partner: It is very very difficult to start a clan alone. Even one other trusted clan-mate can make the difference of succeeding or failing. Three is better than two, etc. A partner can be a friend or someone that you know from CoC as long as there is trust.
  2. Friends: It is always fun to play with friends. But, it is also hard to get rid of one if he/she is not cutting it. So choose wisely and look at the other criteria below.
  3. Trophy Push: It is human nature, people want to be with winners. So as a clan you have a few things to make you a winner or at least appear like one. For those who are recruiting in global chat, the higher your trophies (especially when recruiting TH7 and lower) the more attractive you look.
  4. The top must be strong: The top half of your clan must be ROCK solid. If so, you will win wars. So, it is here that you must choose very very carefully.  For example, if you are a TH7 and starting a new clan, you could TRY to make it TH7 only, or take TH7 and lower. To be safe, you would want 5 of your first 10 to be STRONG TH7s. By doing this, the bottom 5 don’t matter. They don’t have to get a single star in war. The top half will win your wars–if they are STRONG.
  5. Keep THs close: In a perfect world, a clan would be all the same TH and the same level (i.e. Maxed TH7). That works great. If you can’t do this (nearly all can’t), at least keep the top half of the clan (that will be in wars) VERY close (i.e. TH8 and TH7). If you start spreading it out, you run the risk of bad match-ups. Even better, if the entire group can be close (i.e. all TH9s and TH8s; or TH8s and TH7s). As a leader, it would be optimal for you to be the top player, if not then you should be very close and the top player is a trusted player.
  6. What to look for:
    1. Scout Base
      1. Not rushed—TH and defenses are in check (Not TH7 with level 4 walls). RUSHED bases will KILL the clan if they are in the top half!!! If there is one piece of advice that you take from this, this is it!
      2. Camp size–are they at max troops for their TH level or really close? If not, consider passing or keeping them out of war.
      3. Spell Factory–maxed for their TH level. Spells are SO important in war and should NEVER be underestimated.
      4. Base design–if the base is not well designed, well expect the same for their war base.
    2. Profile
      1. War stars(bottom left on profile page)–after all, if you are going to war, you want someone that actually does WELL in wars. Anyone in the top of your clan has to do well or the clan will not.
      2. Troops(type and level)–do they have troops that are appropriate for their TH level? Are they maxed? This is very important.
      3. Attack Wins–are they active? Are they in a league? If they are not, they might be very LAZY–just rely on war for base growth. These type of players are not the best for the clan.
      4. Level–this does not have ANY indication of a good or bad player. Usually, it means that someone donates troops or does not. Someone who donates is GOOD for the clan, someone who is a taker, is not!
  7. Make rules: This is so often overlooked. Make rules for who can join, who can be in war, how one gets elder, how one gets co-.
    1. I am not in favor of giving elder or co- away. It can kill a clan if it is in the wrong hands. Everyone must be on the same page of the rules–who to accept and who to reject–or only a few have this responsibility.
    2. Early-to get your first 10, you may have to give away Elder. Once you get to 10, tighten the reigns and give NOTHING away.
    3. ELDER–I recommend giving with donations, solid play, and some loyalty (3-4 weeks). With more mature clans, make it longer.
    4. CO-LEADER–this is a very serious position. I do not recommend giving it to ANYONE that has not proven themselves to the clan–donations, leadership, trust, and GREAT war play.

  1. I am in clash as the “IMMORTAL”, i am the leader of a lvl 7 clan i built myself. What i have run into recently is that if we use a winning team of say 10 v 10 and win 4 srltraight (we only war twice a week) then alot of the clan is sitting out and complaining that they arent in war. Its fun to have a big war but if we lose most of them then its a no go to me. I delegate in my clan and have war generals that i let run wars and they answer to no one but me. Its a prestigious rank and many in our clan reach for it. My delema is this, alot in my clan wish to war and have fun no matter the losses, i disagree, i feel if thats what they want then they can go somewhere else. So as a result my clan may be going through yet another rebuild. Also i see some better clans advertise with there own web page off of game or on supercel forums. How do i achieve that and any advice you have on anything i have said is most welcome. Thanx


    • Great comment. In short, if you do make big wars and lose, you will lose good players. Setting up wars is not easy and must be carefully planned. It can take me 30 minutes to figure out who is in and who is out. I know who is strong and who is weak. I ensure I have strong players to cover the weak players. At the start of war, I sometimes assign attacks so everyone knows who they are responsible for. In nearly all well planned wars, we win.

      Alternatively, one can use a feeder or sister clan. Those not in war can war there. Players can bounce back and forth and get troops from both clans. In short, it’s not easy.
