What will happen about clans that have since disbanded? Will medals be awarded retrospectively for the members of a clan that won a war, even if the clan no longer exists?

The minimum should be 40 games. There is no reason there should be a 1-game difference between privileges and medals. A 10-game difference would at least make some logical sense, but 1-game just seems to be there to be annoying. The 40-game rule and that there must be a winner should suffice. The only reason the single game is thrown in there is to avoid ties, but the other rule already covers it. If clans tie, they either break the tie and get medals or let it stand and not get medals.


I'm glad you didn't put a minimum percentage of types of team games on the requirements, but single games shouldn't have been thrown out. Put in stipulations such as only 10% of the points, 5-game minimum per point, and no player can play in more than one series and it will suffice as a component of a clan war. There are always key 1v1 match-ups in any major team sport, so there's no reason to outright ban them here.


Minimum games per player and winning one game look good.

The short answer is yes, if they meet all the criteria for wars and players. We do have a few wars where the documentation is a little poor, but overall I knew the clans well enough to know who was with whom and when. I did quietly correct some of the war threads, and did contact 2 or 3 clans to locate game numbers that may have been missing or not updated. Plus by linking teammates in games, you get to the clans be process of elimination. All analysis has several points of reconciliation and game spots by each clan is one of them, as well as comparing actual games vs the total score etc.

It is not mentioned above, but medals will be issued out historically, and chronologically based on the war and work done.

Perhaps a dumb question as I am fairly new to the clan side of CC. Are there ever multi-team wars? And how do the medals work around that?

Is it 40 games total or 40 games per team?

Clan A v Clan B v Clan C.

Set up for 42 games, 14 home games, 7 against each rival.

War is more than 40 games but each clan plays 28.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

Another short answer of yes for those of the minimum size; some discussion has been had in the CLA around penalties and forfeits etc. so a decision on one of the matches has not yet been made. The CD's will cross that road when we get to issuing medals around the one on everyone's mind.

That has not happened yet. If there are ever non-standard wars/events/challenges the clans involved will need to seek council from the Clan Directors.

And obviously it also depends on if the 1v1 games restriction is released.

Keeping 1v1 out entirely is too much, in my opinion. As long as each 1v1 "game" is actually a best-of series (5, ideally), and the maximum allowable is not too high (10-15% seems reasonable), I think 1v1 should not be a problem to allow.

Just for the record, I wasn't trying to start trouble. I was wondering whether the battles of the first two rounds were "historical" enough to pass the 36 game rule, or if the current 41-game rule was being applied to them, in which case, only the semis and onward would be counted, if the Cup wars were to be counted at all. I wasn't referencing the war-that-shall-not-be-named. It was a question of where the cut-off is for historical/current, if the dividing line was now, the creation of the medal, or some other point.

Sorry, my initial question could have been a lot more precise.

Few things...

1. 1 vs 1 games should be allowed.
2. 41 games kills many historical great battles, which were 40 games.
3. Having to win a game is semi backwards. Yeah sure it would be good to win, but if someone plays and their clan wins then should not matter how many they won or lost.
4. This whole participation level stuff is rather lame if you ask me. Anybody who takes part in the winning side of a war should be getting a medal. If someone only plays 5 games in your example then they would be out? Seems backwards if you ask me. As long as they play in 1 game win or lose, they should be getting one. That is the whole "team" aspect. In American football the kicker does not play every play, rather sometimes only 1 play per game. That 1 play could be the game winner.




I would just like to say this a good step in getting clans in the right direction as far as CC goes. We as clans have been growing and if the admin thinks this will help more, then more power to them.

1. That will be discussed further and there are a couple of options
2. Historical wars are 36 points and above, going forward is 41. There are over 100 historical wars getting medals.
3. Based on the win% discussion in the CLA, this is the lowest we are willing to go. This was a huge compromise to the original proposal and subsequent ones. In order for a clan to win, they need to win games, if you can't win a single game, then you have not contributed. This is way more than fair and won't be changed.
4. Then you don't agree with upper limits than as well? The minimum is 3 games regardless which is similar to a simple 16 bracket 1v1 tournament. It also works well for freemiums even though they make up very little of the clan population. This formula is very generous and should be easy to achieve. We will give this some time, but this is unlikely to change. I will put this on the future consideration/discussion list.

that would be someone like me who plays very few games in our challenges (yes.... most of the time under 3 games) but we have never lost... so i would receive no medal? :lol: just silly... that makes them pointless and pretty much a waste of valuable time that could be used to focus on something more constructive..... in my eyes anyway ......

but hey..... you go boy!

i may even get one or two medals but that wont change my mind....
