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!
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.
Activating our Alliance for the first time, we hosted Myiagros and kernel from Holger DK mini for what was our very first 50v50 Clan War. We knew going in it would be a tough fight with a half dozen inactives on our roster. We were undeterred and confident that we could still muster enough stars with our new guests on board. Our guests did perform well with both scoring 6 stars each. Which should have brought our 80-90 Clan War average to around 100. However, poor target choices, poorly planned attacks, missed executions, and some genuinely tough base defenses, courtesy of Anfield Legends, many of our most reliable members failed to get their requisite stars. Anfield Legends matched our participation but bested our attack prowess with crushing attacks and extremely well executed hogrider and dragon attacks. Their attacks kept coming and coming with a record 118 stars... the most we've given up to date in Clan Wars. Props to Anfield Legends for an exciting and humbling Clan War. After the dust cleared, we learned a lot about good base design and attack tactics. We will incorporate our learning into making our clan stronger and better for our next Clan War. Clash on!
Higher quality attacks meant that even though we were only ahead by 2 attacks, we produced 50% more wins and an average destruction of 88.1% vs their 77.7%. Quality win. End of story.
We went up against another well organized clan with a feeder of their own. The ClashofRaiders didn't have a bad turn out. In fact they were even with us during the first half of Battle Day, but the tide of attacks from The Gentlemen was unstoppable and at a certain point our opponents just lost their stomach for battle. The first 16 attacks went without a defeat with 11 of those being 3 star attacks. A new clan record. It shows that we are embracing the clan philosophy of using first attacks for stars and putting the clan and stars ahead of loot and glory. Superb donations insured our war castles were equipped with the best defenses. tjdowdy secured another clan record of 6 successful defenses going undefeated by end of Battle Day besting Chilomastix's previous record of 5. Turog secured another Most Heroic Attack, extending his record to 14. All of this leading us to the largest victory gap of 50 stars... another clan record! Absolutely proud of this clan effort. Great job guys!
