The Clan Battles have officially begun so it’s time to raise your flags high and proud. Prepare your clans with the ultimate fighting strategy and you could be victorious in the battle for triumph and glory.
24 hours later
The epic Clan Battles begin through the Games of Glory page where your clan leaders and generals can start the search for an opposing clan of similar power.
Once an enemy clan has been selected for the battle, you will have 24 hours to get ready for battle.
Using this 24 hours period wisely to prepare your fellow clan members, discuss tactics, and create a strategy, could make or break your victory.
This preparation period is vital for deliberating the ultimate strategy with your clan members to decide which colosseums to attack. Will you all follow the same path and focus on long-duration capture of colosseums with the highest points, or will you all attack all the colosseums to capture as many as possible for a short period of time?
Sharing is caring
As we outlined in a previous blog post, the Clan Building brings some very special time-limited bonuses created from orbs that the clan donate.
The Clan Battle is a perfect opportunity to strategize the use of these bonuses and may persuade you to act for the greater good of the clan and donate some of your orbs.
Discussing this strategy in the clan chat is vital as no one will benefit from orb bonuses if no one donates or if everyone requests.
Having a select few members requesting orbs (particularly the green and orange orbs for defensive and offensive combat bonuses) will be more beneficial to the clan overall than if everyone receives 2 orbs for instance.
If some users use these bonuses during the Clan Battle, their chance of success in the arena increases which will increase the amount of points won and therefore improve your chances of clan victory and incredible prizes!
Command a fantastic victory
An important tactic for battle strategy is consistent communication with your clan. Not only is the clan chat easily accessible on the left of your clan battle screen, but also your clan leaders and generals will have the opportunity to signal colosseums to the clan.
Powerful clan members will be able to choose a colosseum and “command” the clan to attack it.
Using a command on a colosseum will place a flag on it which will act as a signal to the other clan members about where the leaders think would be most tactical to attack.
Up to 5 commands can be made at any one time, and each one will last a limited duration, so think carefully about how to share your strategy.
Power is a dangerous thing
During the Clan Battle the power of clan generals is fully exploited. Clan leaders can promote clan members to become generals, and demote generals to a regular clan member status.
Whilst there is no limit to the amount of generals you clan can have, it should be incorporated into your battle plan.
Too many clan generals and the battle strategy may become confusing or conflicted, with commands not tactically making sense across the arena which could cost you the victory.
Clan leaders have the ultimate power to demote generals from their authority through the Clan Building by tapping on the member’s name.
Will your clan be full of equality and allow for a balanced power and discussion of strategy, or will you prefer a hierarchy of power within your clan?
The ultimate Clan Battle strategy
Whilst there is no perfect strategy for the Clan Battles, and each clan will have a different battle plan, there are certain key factors to consider.
Some colosseums require more points to capture. It can be strategic for all clan members to attack the same place in order to secure a capture, particularly when the colosseum has a higher number of points generated whilst captured.
Make sure you keep an eye on the colosseum point scales as you need to ensure your colosseums remain captured, therefore protecting your pathways across the map.
The colosseums furthest away from your starting side of the arena generate the most points once captured, however they are are more challenging in combat and also require more points to capture. Reaching these and securing them could be the key to victory!
The centre colosseum is also a gold mine for capture, with only one access point, making it more challenging for the enemy to threaten once captured by you.
This colosseum provides some of the highest numbers of points across the arena, and is less challenging to reach due to its central position.
Capturing the access point and the centre colosseum would generate a large amount of points over time, increasing your chances at victory.
The gateway to success
There are also 4 main gateway colosseums in the arena: two on each side, and two on each end of the map.
These provide a single access point on each side of the arena to the other end of the map which means capturing these colosseums provide protection to your end of the map (which would be the most valuable colosseums for your enemy) as they cannot pass a colosseum territorialized by your clan.
The same goes for the opposite side of the map. If you capture both sides of these gateway colosseums, you have access to the enemy’s most valuable colosseums that generate the most points, and also close off the rest of the map for the opposition.
