I've added an About us... section to the About page. A little statement about our clan's demographic and culture. Please let me know if you'd like any additions or changes to the About us...
A decisive victory against an opponent with such low activity levels we wondered if they ever were going to make a push. In the end they should not have even bothered. It was easy loot pickups for most of the clan. Notable mention goes to vjoflo who racked up Most Heroic Attack AND Defense. Woot!
An early lead quickly disappeared as Pinoy Utopia made their push and fought a close battle til the very end. Alicia (mikey) had to pull out all the stops again and score 3 stars at the very end to tie the score. Loot bonuses were a disappointing fraction of the total usually awarded for a win but better than a loss. Reading the stats, we came out ahead in every category except the win/attack ratio. Well fought Gentlemen!
Another exciting win for TG1 as the gang rallys at the end to put the Mob in the ground... like six feet deep. Great job by everyone!
The voting was overwhelmingly for twice a week. More than 50% of you asked for wars twice a week. The other half was a mixture of wars once a week and sometimes and "other". Surprisingly, no one voted for the 24/7 option, revealing that even warmongers need a break. If we split the data between twice a week and less then that, we have an even split. As a compromise, we will continue to war twice a week but will take a 48-72hr break in the event of a loss so that we can regroup and gets some upgrades in before our battling our next opponents.
UPDATE: It's official. Clan Wars twice a week until we lose. Then we break for 2-3 days during which time warmongers can jump to feeder or our brother clan to get their warring in.
I'm taking an informal poll on how the clan feels about the frequency of having Clan Wars. Pros for having it often is that there is constant activity and the opportunity for bonus loot. Cons are that it can get expensive and slow down upgrades. Pros for weekly Clan Wars is that it gives time to plan, analyze, and upgrade defenses, giving us a better chance to win wars. Cons for weekly wars are that there is a lull in activity which may deter members actively looking for war.
My personal opinion is that we need to keep growing as a clan. That's what was exciting about Clan Wars for me when it was introduced. It put a stop to the BS and put the money (or loot) where your mouth was. It's one thing to say we have the best clan, it's another to prove it. It brought members out of inactivity and created a social hub around exciting battles. I love that we get better with every war... every opponent that we lost to taught us something and we incorporated it into our strategy and tactics... thus making us stronger for the next war. Our War Castle formula was adapted from one of our early losses. We learned and got better. Lately, we haven't had the time to regroup and analyze much less adapt. Our last two losses had a lot to teach us and we missed those opportunities because we jumped headfirst into the next conflict.
I love Clan Wars. I hate losing Clan Wars. I want us to get better because we can and should. My 2 cents.
Please vote and post any comments below so the clan can respond. Thanks!
An easy, and much needed, victory for TG1 after a couple of tough and humbling losses. Mexico didn't offer tough enough defenses to stop a focused TG1 on a mission. A mission to destroy! Yours truly suffered some distractions and turned in a shameful 1 star from a single attack. The rest of TG1 did not suffer that fate as 3 star after 3 star attack pulverized Mexico's bases up and down their war map. Nicely done Gentlemen! Welcome back!
TG2 continues their impressive streak of wins, continuing the tradition of quality over quantity. Grats!
TG1 faced another tough clan skilled at hog-rider and dragon attacks and tough base defenses. Speaking of bases, they were employing a very effective design (dragon and hog resistant) on almost a dozen of their bases. We did not have an effective counter for their set up. They were patient and volleyed hard at the end cementing the battlefield with destroyed bases. They were employing the attack strategy that I've wanted to execute for a long time. Well done Arg Clash Clan. Well done.
