Silverwing Clan Information and Rules

This article is about the Silverwing Clan (tag#9VGUV0Q9) in the multiplayer, internet based game Clash of Clans. A United States team consisting of a large number of family and friends, with a number of guests from around the world to keep it interesting.

Our clan is about team enjoyment of the game. Winning is fun, but having fun is more important than winning.


Silverwing Clan History

After playing Clash of Clans for a few months in another clan, Delphineous and Kaliyah ventured out and created Silverwing Clan on May 5, 2015. Soon after, our children joined us along with some friends from other clans. The first few wars were tough as we worked to build up the clan. By the end of June we had a reasonable leadership established and a full clan.

Full Rules Detail

To ensure fairness with the clan and ongoing support of the team, the following rules are enacted and enforced by Silverwing Clan Leadership. All Silverwing Clan members are expected to observe the rules, subject to demotion and/or termination from the team.

  1. All members shall speak English within Silverwing Clan.
    A unified language within the clan helps ensure understanding and ability to communicate.
    This includes clan chat, troop requests, etc.
  2. In Game Name (IGN) of members should contain multiple Roman or Latin characters (alphabet/numbers).
    Silverwing Clan Leadership and other members need the ability to identify persons to which they are speaking. Icon, special character and other non-roman characters are not available on our devices to use.
    – Clan leadership may kick out a member with an offensive IGN.
  3. All members shall mind their manners.
    Please and Thank you go a long way in relationships.
  4. Don’t fall for gem and resource scams!

    Respect all members and do not use profanity.
    Name calling, personal attacks and profanity simply are not appropriate or tolerated.
  5. Members are expected to donate troops to other clan members.
    Players received 50 or more troop units, but have failed to donate any troops may be kicked during the open period between wars, or during war if not included.
    – All players should maintain donations relatively equal to or higher than troops received, with a 50% tolerance.
    If a player receives 100 troops, they should donate at least 50 troops, but preferably closer to the 100.
  6. To be considered for war, a Town Hall 9 or above member needs to donate at least 50 troops to the clan and follow all rules of this clan.
  7. Only members with Town Hall level Thirteen and higher should donate to war castles. Typically done by clan leadership.
    The better the troops in War Castles, the harder it is for our opponents to get stars.

    Game design by Supercell – War Castle donations are not included in troop donations counts

    – Witches shall go into all War Castles first.
    – Wizards and the arches should be used to finish filling war castles.
    – Goblins, Healers, Giants, Balloons and Wallbreakers should not be placed in war castles – ever. Neither should Minions, Hog Riders, Valkyries, Golems, Miners or Bowlers.
  8. Requests for troops should not exceed one level beyond what the member can produce themselves. The same applies to spell and siege machine requests.
    If a player can only make level three Archers, they should only request up to level four archers.
    If a player can produce up to Balloons, they may request wizards, but shouldn’t request Healers or higher troops.
    – Only Town Hall level Seven (with dark spell factory and dark barracks built) and higher should request Dark Troops.
    – Be reasonable with troop requests; too high of troop level reduces your chance of getting the troops requested, since fewer players can produce the highest troops.
  9. In line with the prior rule, do not donate troops that were not requested.
    Donating higher troops than requested is delightful, but please don’t donate lower level troops or troops that aren’t desired. (in example, don’t donate goblins if giants are requested)
  10. Protect your Town Hall in War Villages by having them near the center of the base and completely surrounded by defenses and walls.

    Goblins are for looting, not attacking in clan war.

    Town Hall destruction is an immediate star; make it harder for our opponents to get them.
  11. Participation in War is required, making both attacks with an honest effort.
    Established clan members (Elder and above) should opt out of war to be excused from the next war. All new members are expected to participate in war.
    Speak to the Leader or a Co-leader if extended absence is necessary.
    – If after two wars a member doesn’t qualify for war, they will be removed from the clan.
    – If a Member is opted out of war for two consecutive wars, they may be removed from the clan.
    – If a clan Elder or Co-leader is opted out of war for more than two weeks, they may be removed from the clan if not otherwise active.
    – Opting out of war does not guarantee excuse from war. If additional players are need, opted out members will be drafted. All opted out players should double check that they were not included in the current war.
  12. Goblins should not be used in clan war attacks.
    Greedy behavior is not tolerated and subject to being kicked out of the clan.
  13. Attack only with full camps and castle. If you have spell capability, full spells are expected as well.
    You don’t have to use all troops if they are not needed to reach three stars, but don’t go in short-handed.
  14. RULE OF THREE- Only three up or three down from your village until six hours remain.

    In Clan Wars, each player shall first attack only their mirror. For their second attack, they may attack a base which they truly believe they can three star, with the following limitations:
    Clan Wars with 30 or fewer players – Do not attack below three villages lower than your village nor above three villages higher than yours until there are only 6 hours remaining in war. The bottom eight villages are reserved for our bottom eight players until 6 hours remain in war.
    Clan Wars with 40 or more players – Do not attack below six villages lower than your village nor above six villages higher than yours until there are only 6 hours remaining in war. The bottom ten villages are reserved for our bottom ten players until 6 hours remain in war.
    Attacking too low prevents lower members from having fair battles; attacking too high risks wasting potential stars and are considered greedy attacks.
  15. In Clan War League, each player may only attack their mirror, with two exceptions. If someone has already attacked and their mirror has at least two available stars, then it is fair for any team player to attempt to make a better attack.
    – When three hours remain in the round, all bases are fair game provided the believable goal is three stars.
    – As always – You must have full troops, heroes, castle and spells for your attack.
  16. Don’t bother “claiming” a base in Clan War. We do not recognize these claims. Battle when ready on appropriate bases.
  17. Attacking a base that already has three stars is not appropriate.
    These “repeat” attacks contribute no new stars to the war and may result in being kicked.
  18. Remain in the clan at all times.
    Clan hopping is not acceptable behavior for our membership.
  19. We’re not your Bro! Overuse of this term is obnoxious and kickable.

    Be patient after submitting a request.
    It takes time to train troops, especially big and expensive troops. Wait at least 15 minutes before re-requesting or posting comments for troops.
    Our clan is based in the United States. We might not be online during our night-time.
  20. Be mindful of how frequently you are posting.
    Posting multiple times in a very short period, which is not part of a valid conversation, is obnoxious and not well tolerated.
  21. Participation in Clan Games is preferred for membership in the clan; it is a requirement for promotion to Elder or Co-leader.
    – Players that participate, but contribute less than 500 points per Clan Game session each time may be kicked or might not be promoted.
    We want team players, not coat-tail riders.
    – The first team members to max clan games are likely to get bonuses in Clan War League.
  22. Although rare, it is the prerogative of the clan leader to act outside these rules as he deems appropriate.
  23. Contribute to the Clan Capital. Participation in weekend raids is required for promotion within the clan.

    Upgrade Clan Capital base components in the following order:
    • Army Camp
    • Barracks
    • Defensive buildings
    • Traps
    • Factories
    • Stores
    • Other buildings
    • Walls
    • Hall

    Upgrade one component at a time. Do not start another upgrade until the previous one is completed.

    Allow a player to complete their attacks before taking over attacks on the base which they were just attacking.
    – If a player does not resume their attacks within 10 minutes after their last attack, the base is fair game for another player to attack.

Attack only when camps, heroes, castle and spell factories are full.

Aborting an attack in clan war and attempting an attack without full camps, spells and castle are not acceptable. The game shows your troop status and requests verification before going into an attack. The game prompts to verify Surrender, too. There are no valid excuses for aborted or undermanned attacks. All Zero and One Star attacks are reviewed by Silverwing Clan Leadership and violators are removed from the clan.

Clash of Clans Limits Players in Wars

Supercell, the maker of Clash of Clans, has set limits on the number of players in war, this is particularly true for Clan War League (CWL).

Clan War

Clan war can have 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, or 50 players. There is no option for any other quantity. We wish they’d put 35 and 45 back in, but alas they’ve left it out since those two counts were removed a few years ago. That means we have to leave people out of war sometimes, or draft opted out players. The first people to be cut are those that do not qualify for war. The first people to be drafted are those that joined the clan in an opted out status.

Clan War League

In CWL, they limit us to 15 or 30 players. Fortunately, this is the per day limit. We add everyone into CWL and then we rotate the players each day to give everyone a chance to play and collect rewards. Our top performers tend to be left in for most days of CWL.

Bonuses are limited to what Supercell allows us to distribute. Since we can’t give bonuses to everyone, we give them out based on a number of factors. Naturally these factors are discretionary

  • The first members to max their Clan Games contribution are considered first. Members that do not participate, or minimally participate, are less likely to receive the bonuses.
  • Members which are behind on donations might not be given war league bonuses.
  • Minor infractions of the rules may lower the odds of receiving a bonus.

Some may consider these bonus conditions unfair, and depending on perspectives that may be true. The goal of handling the bonuses this way is to ensure players are rewarded for overall contribution and loyalty to the team.

Number of stars earned in CWL is typically not considered a fair measure for giving bonuses, since Supercell limits force us to leave players out of war league each day and we rotate players.

Asking for a Promotion is Asking for Trouble

No one is considered for promotion until contributing for at least five wars.

Short Story – Promotion to Elder or Co-leader is earned. Our clan does not give away these titles.

Elder and Co-leader are given to members that have proven themselves to the clan leadership that they are reliable and contribute to the team spirit and success of the clan for an extended period of time (Co is awarded no earlier than three weeks after earning Elder).

If a player is worthy of a promotion, Silverwing Clan Leadership will make it happen without prompting from the individual. Persons reminding clan leadership to promote them may be deemed not ready for promotion. (Might delay promotion or queue kicking)

Basic principles:

  • Anyone asking (or demanding) to be promoted has a much lower chance of being promoted.
  • Anyone that needs to be reminded often to donate troops has a lower chance of being promoted
  • Anyone that attacks in war undermanned, too low or high, or does not participate will not be promoted; in fact they might be kicked.
  • Participation in Clan Games and Weekend Raids are required for promotion.

The basic principles can be summarized as – Anyone that plays only for themselves and does not act and contribute to the team is not a team player.  Only team players get promoted.

Clan leadership is expected to not only lead by example, but to exceed the minimum requirements.

Check out some tips and strategy ideas that I have written as I learned the game myself. My personal strategy has changed slightly since the document was written, but the advice within is still valid.

Leadership Rules

New members may not be accepted during war.

New members might not be accepted into the clan during war, regardless of player level, unless approved by Co-leader or Leader. A trusted member of the clan should vouch for exceptions. This is a protective measure since spying is a common practice during war, and also to conserve team resources for war.
When evaluating a member, consider their Town Hall, War Stars Won, and Friend in Need statistics. The following table represents the preferred minimum per Town Hall level.

Town Hall LevelWar Stars WonFriend in Need

Position of Elder within the Silverwing Clan is an earned role for persons that participate in wars, clan games, weekend raids, donate a significant number of troops and help other players in development.

  • The game design does not allow elders to start war searches or modify the Clan Capital.
  • Elders should only Kick Out members that repeatedly break clan rules.
  • Only known, trusted persons should be allowed into the clan during war.
  • Refer to the Terminated Members Page for members that have been banned from the clan. Don’t allow them to join the clan; kick them during open enrollment.

Co-leader opportunities are limited to persons that are well-known and trusted by Silverwing Clan Leadership. Just like Elders, Co-leaders participate in wars, raids and clan games, donate a significant number of troops to members and help other players in development, when requested.

  • Co-leaders may start a war search no sooner than 60 minutes after a war has ended and standard preparations (clan clean-up; see “War Preparation”) have been executed.
  • Co-leaders should only Promote Members to Elder upon agreement with minimum of three Co-leaders or clan Leader.
  • Co-leaders should only Promote Elders to Co-leader upon agreement with minimum of three Co-leaders and clan Leader.
  • Co-leaders should only Demote and Kick Out members that repeatedly break clan rules.
    During war prior to both attacks used by the player, please only kick for extreme cases.
  • Do not change the clan logo or description without approval from the Leader.

The Silverwing Clan Leader will also participate in wars, raids and clan games, donate a significant number of troops to responsible members and help other players in development.

  • Leader will start war searches or delegate to a Co-leader as necessary.
  • Leader will Promote Members to Elder as they meet the requirements here-in.
  • Leader will Promote Elders to Co-Leader as they meet the requirements here-in.
  • Leader will Demote and Kick Out members that repeatedly break clan rules.

Persons with multiple accounts that have become Co-leader on their primary account – one additional account will be promoted to Elder, while any remaining might be left as regular member or promoted to elder as deemed appropriate by the clan Leader.

War Preparation

Between each war Silverwing Clan membership is evaluated based on war participation and donation levels, in accordance with clan rules. Persons found out of compliance may be demoted and/or removed from the clan. Special consideration is given whenever appropriate.

The clan is opened to ‘Anyone can join’ for a period of 1-24 hours at the convenience of leadership to allow players to join the clan between wars. After the new members are evaluated and joins/leaves stabilize, the clan may be changed to ‘Closed’ and a war search may begin. Consider the following in evaluating new members:

  • Any player banned from the clan will be kicked.
    Verify player ID matches our terminated list.
  • Persons ineligible for war may be removed from the clan to make space for eligible players.
    Anyone ineligible for war with a period of more than 23 hours will be kicked from the clan.
    Persons kicked out of or abandoning another clan during war are not welcome here.
  • New players that are opted out of war may be removed from the clan to make space for other members, or they may be drafted into war.
    All new players must participate in war. Only established teammates may take breaks from war – be sure to let leadership know and ‘opt out’ when appropriate.
  • Persons not speaking English or having non-roman style characters as their IGN should be removed.
    It is difficult to work as a team if we cannot communicate.
  • Player names with sequential letters or numbers, only one character repeated numerous times and seemingly random characters are considered invalid and the player may be kicked out of the clan.
  • Donation history (“Friend in Need” statistic) is considered when clearing the clan. Refer to the chart above for minimum requirements.
    Part of being a team is supporting each other. Those with poor history of supporting their team are not welcome here.

Accounting of Records

Silverwing Clan Leadership maintains a roster of all members and war activities. The information is used to determine when members should be promoted or terminated. Terminated persons will not be permitted to return.

    1. You are welcome to join. What is your Game Name? I’ll watch for your join request and approve it.

  2. This the best clan i had join.!
    Thank you for all happiness that you gave to me and other clan member DELPH during my time in Silverwing. Hope this clan have more succesfull. I’m Happy to play with you and all leadership. Apologize for my bad english. Once again, Thank you so much, Delph and other Leadership.
    Best Regards,
    Al-Aufaa (Rahma Al-Aufaa).

    1. Unwillingness to obey the clan rules. Particularly, failing to participate in war (multiple times) and repeated inappropriate troop requests. Ironic, since you made a comment in clan chat complaining about others not obeying the rules.

    1. You can, right here on the Rules page – or within game chat in the clan. We do not have a channel on any other communications system beyond that or our facebook page.

  3. Rose77 was kicked out of the clan I have no idea why. Could someone please tell me why. Is it because I wasn’t donating enough, if that’s the cause I was trying to catch up with them by not requesting for troops unless I really needed them. But if it wasn’t for that then was it for not attacking properly in war/not being able to get 3 stars? If not that either then what rules did I break? Please reply ASAP.

    1. Rose – we do not kick people for not getting three stars. That would be quite hypocritical. You were kicked due to significant donation skew, for an extended period. You joined the clan at about June 28. In two weeks period your donations fell further behind. Clan leadership was very patient, due to your player level, but the patience eventually wears out.

      1. Yep – You’re absolutely right it is a game, and games have rules. Without the rules to the games, it is too difficult to play fairly and too many players take unfair advantage.
