Sorry guys, been laid up in bed with a nasty virus this past week. Barely concious for most of that time. Recovering slowly and looking forward to getting updates back online ASAP. Thanks to fluppie and mikey for doing a great job managing the clan in my absense. Thanks to all my co-leads and elders who keep the clans running in the black. Thx guys!
When The Gentlemen was reorganized under my leadership, the goal was simple...get everyone to generously donate in an environment of trust. The primary advantages to clan membership at that time was getting your clan castle filed with the highest quality troops as quickly as possible. Since the introduction of Clan Wars, that goal has changed somewhat. It is still vitally important to exchange high level troops but to do well in Clan Wars, you now need to recruit and retain high level players with strong bases, tacticians who are skilled at taking down tough defenses, people who know how to work together as a team, communicating and coordinating around a war schedule. Strategy, tactics, participation, and communication are now equally important.
The requirements and responsibilities of a Co-leader has to change as well. All of our current Co-leaders have met the basic requirement of being generous donors who contribute high numbers of quality troops to both CCs and WCs. They also exemplify positive role models and continuously contribute to the development of trust and well being in chats. Going forward we also need to recognize the contributions of strong players who continuously defend our honor and reputation in Clan Wars with impregnable defenses and dominating attacks as well as veterans who show up for every Clan War ready with both attacks willing to make sacrifices in the best interests of the clan. These valued members continue to pad our coffers with gold and elixir after each Clan War win, allowing us to grow stronger as a clan. With that, I will be promoting several new members to the ranks of co-leaders to join an already impressive team of clan stewards. Please check the Members page* to see the active list of Co-leaders. I will also be updating the website to include the specific responsibilities of all Co-leaders. Thanks!
* The list of members has been moved from the About page to the Members page.
This was one of the closest matches we had since battling against our brother clan, HolgerDK Mini. The early part of Battle Day was a heated neck-n-neck race with less than 2 stars separating the score any any time. Then midway, The Gentlemen pulled away and never looked back. Looking at the clan sheet told the whole story. Out of the top 15 players for both teams, TG1 had 14 players who contributed 2 attacks while Cash Bandits could only muster 9. The remainder of Cash Bandits didn't have the skills or firepower to crack our superb defenses. One of our bases took 5 attempts before someone was able to 3 star it. Nice job everyone!
