Clan Wars

  • Find an active Clan! You need a minimum of 10 Clan members to participate in Clan Wars
  • All participants need to be King Level 8
  • Only Clan Leaders or Co-leaders can start a war
  • Once your Clan has started a war, go to the Social tab and you’ll see the map.

Day 1: Collection Day

Battle with your own cards to earn Clan Cards. Clan Cards are used to build your War Deck for War Day!

  • You get 3 battles on Collection Day
  • The goal is to collect as many Clan Cards as possible
  • On the map you’ll find various game modes that change after they’ve been played
  • Battling on any of the game modes earns Clan Cards, but wins earn the most
  • The higher your Arena, the more Clan Cards you can earn
  • Build different decks to suit the different game modes
  • When Collection Day ends, War Day begins…

Day 2: War Day

Battle with the Clan Cards for all the glory! The Clan with the most War Day victories wins the war!

  • Test your War Deck in a Friendly Battle before your Final Battle
  • Make sure to cheer on your Clanmates when they play their Final Battle
