Q1. Is this a serious war clan, or a chill social clan?
A1. Some clans in Mutant Tribe are more serious about war than others, but all of them should be friendly enviornments that help you get better at war. We focus more on effort, teachability, and learning, than on actual war outcomes (although we do try to win as much as possible). We strive to have a chill social environment, and do not tolerate mean or toxic personalities.
Q2. When do we start the wars?
A2. We spin (start war search) on Sun, Tue, & Fri at 4:30pm EST. Battle days start 23 hours after matching (so around 5pm, Mon, Wed, & Sat).
Q3. Can I be in the war (or CWL)?
A3. If you are in a required war clan, you will be put in war, regardless of your “Clan Wars” preference. In optional-war clans, set your “Clan Wars” preference to “I’m in” (green), and we will put you in war.
Q4. What happens if I miss a war attack?
A4. If a member misses (fails to use) one or more war attacks, they will be kicked from the clan for 7 days, the first time, followed by 14 days the second time, and 60+ days the third time.
Q5. I need to sit out next war, is that ok? What about the next 2 or 3 wars?
A5. If you need to sit out for a war or two, opt out by moving to an optional-war clan (Y, F, or 0), and setting your “Clan Wars” preference to the red “I’m out” option. Any player that had opted in when the war search started must use their attacks.
Q6. Should I opt out if my heroes are down?
A6. No, you can move to Mutant Z if your heroes are down.
Q7. Can I move on to the next TH level? If so, can I stay in the clan?
A7. Only move to the next TH level if your current TH is mostly maxed out - offense and defense. If you aren’t sure, ask a Co-Leader to check. We do not allow rushed bases. For upgrading, we recommend:
- Understand and follow Smart Upgrading: War Weight vs Defensive Value.
- Don’t upgrade defenses at new TH until you can already 3-star a TH with those defenses.
Q8. Which base should I attack? My mirror? The “suggested target”?
A8. Disregard the “suggested target” given to you by the game — you know better than it does. Also, pay no attention to the ranking of opponent bases (e.g. your mirror). They are ranked according to defensive weight, which may only coincidentally align with your attack strength.
Instead, find the highest base which you are sure you can 3 star. If it’s your first (of two) attacks, you can even drop down one lower to ensure the 3 star. If you succeed at that one, your second attack can be the one above it. Otherwise, drop down lower.
Keep in mind that our goal is to maximize the total number of stars for the team to ensure the win. So make sure to attack bases which will help the team net the most stars given the other attacks still remaining. If all bases are 3-starred, attack a harder base than usual in order to gain practice. Clan leaders may ask some people to do scout attacks to reveal traps and clan castle troops to help another attacker get the 3 stars.
Q9. When should I attack in war?
A9. Attack as soon as possible! People above you in the lineup are waiting on you to attack. Leaders may ask some people to hold off on attacking while waiting for other attackers to go first.
Q10. How can I get promoted to Elder or Co-Leader?
A10. Elder is earned (and maintained) by following and promoting our Core Values. Co-Leader is earned (and maintained) by an Elder who is leading or co-leading an organizational function (Operations, People, Recruiting, War, Technology). Ask Kip if you are interested in helping with any of those functions. Promotions are done at the end of each season’s CWL.
