Leader of Solamnia and Pax Tarkas

Clans Update

Friends,

It is with my heart in my hand that I’m writing this.  As you know participating in this game take a little effort. Being a clan Leader takes a lot more effort, and being the Leader of several clans takes a huge effort, something that I have jokingly referred to, on occasions, as a full time job. It is a job I could not do without co-leaders and all players willingness to work toward a common goal. For a while we have seen an overall decay in the quality of this effort by some members of our clans, while other work really hard to help us move forward. I am not willing anymore to reward laziness by keeping these people with us. I admit I have been too lenient in the past, and probably that has lead to the erosion of some of our values but from now on myself, and the co-leaders, need to reward those of you who truly make an effort to be a part of our family.
Clan Wars have changed everything, they have changed the whole game dynamics, but clan wars are here to stay and it doesn’t matter how much you dislike them, they are part of us now. Your effort is to attack twice and get as many stars as possible, it really isn’t a big effort. When you don’t participate you are effectively telling your clan mates that you don’t care if they spent tons of resources to fill War Castles or to create a killing army, same as leeching. It’s unacceptable and we will accept that behavior less and less.
Another point I need to make: if you’re a co-leader it is now MANDATORY to participate in the Leadership chat of the Line app. It’s were we get together and make decision, if you’re not in it you’re missing on our decisions and therefore you cannot keep yourseld and the rest of the clan members updated on what we are doing. If you can’t participate it’s ok, but please step down from co-leader position. It’s not a big deal, co-leader is a position to help our clans. Co-leaders are not better than Elders, they are just busier 🙂

And finally… we decided to make am alternate schedule of wars for Solamnia and Xak Tsaroth so there will always be a war going. So if you love wars you will be able to do that back to back… but there’s more, if you don’t want to war, rather than missing attacks and getting everyone else frustrated (and contributing to us losing) you have now two options:
Option 1) If you think you’ll be inactive for an extended period of time go to Heroes Rest, that’s our resting clan. It’s inactive, no donations necessary, no in-game chat. Once you’re ready return to your official clan (reminder: as of now level 0-69 belong to Xak Tsaroth; level 70+ TH8 at least belong to Solamnia).
Option 2) Jump between our clans before war starts. This way you can be active and not be counted toward war. This option requires you to be active.

Soon we will be publishing the war schedule and this will be permanent in order to avoid confusions.
If you have any comments or questions please write them below. If you haven’t registed here please do that using the same name you use in the game, so I know you’re legit and not some bot/spam.

We all need to work together. The very survival of our clans is at stake.
Solamnia has been alive for nearly 3 years, our goal is still to become #1.
Thank you for your attention, I know this was long…

War in Solamnia

As we temporarily put Solamnia at War to rest, wars have resumed in Solamnia. The first war in a long time just ended with a victory, our final score was 60 – 42 against the Clan French Kiss.
Only 43 attacks were used of the 70 available, which is not good. We need to do better guys.
N’taressa had the most heroic attack, and trust me, it was fun to watch. If you haven’t head to Solamnia’s war log to watch the replay before it disappears.
ÀHickle had the most heroic defense, unfortunately he didn’t use any of his attacks.

A new war was started (against my will) right after this one. You co-leaders, please do not start wars without checking with me first. Sometimes we need to warn or kick the inactive before starting a new war.

SAW is taking a break

After battling 3 back-to-back wars which ended with 1 victory and 2 losses in a row we decided to take a one week break to brainstorm on how to diminish our losses.
We will announce the next war in Line chatrooms as well as with in-game announcements. Stay Tuned!

Mega War is Coming !!

Set your Calendar!! On Thursday September 4th we will start the Mega War in Solamnia At War (SAW). What makes this war different? It will be a full clan, 50 of our members from Solamnia, Pax Tarkas and Xak Tsaroth will fight together to reach 100 battles and 150 stars!! We will allow members to join SAW up to (but no more) than 24 hours before war starts. You must be at least elder to fight in war.

Mega War is scheduled to start Thursday September 4th at 8pm Pacific Time (Los Angeles) and current members can join SAW starting Sept. 3rd, 8pm Pacific Time.
Since most of us live in a different time zone than North America Pacific here is a convenient website that allows you to convert the war time zone to the one you live in:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

It’s easy to use, do this:
In the first line “Select time and place to convert from
Set it to Sept. 4th 2014, 20/8pm
Location: Click on the “Time Zones” button and in the new window option 1 choose “PDT – Pacific Daylight Time North America”

Below, in the option “Select places to convert to” choose your Time Zone or the City you live in, for example, I’m going to type Beirut and choose the result Beirut, Lebanon

Click on “Convert Time”

The result in the new page will be:

Beirut, Lebanon  Friday, September 5, 2014 at 6:00:00 AM

So, the war will start when in Beirut is the time shown right above here.
If you have questions ask one of the co-leaders.

Let’s Clash!

War #4, Victory #4

Yes friends, SAW has once again proved its worth. This time we faced a pretty tough clan, they had strong bases and filled all their war castles… but we showed them!

Unfortunately we missed one attack, which hindered our goal of reaching 100% participation, but we finished the war with a very honorable 98% participation, as a matter of fact that was the very reason why we won. The enemy started getting 3 stars right away with their first 3 attacks while we attacked 8 times but only got 9 stars, but our commitment of fighting every battle and the untouchable defenses in our top bases allowed us to quickly moved ahead, one attack after another, relentlessly. While the enemy slowed down we kept attacking and we kept gaining stars… so here are a few fun numbers:

We Won 59 – 48
We won 39 attacks, they won 23
We used 49 attacks, they used 28 (as I said, at the end participation is what makes or breaks a war)
We had 14 attacks gaining 3 stars (Pixy 2, Ffynn, Blinky, Bukie, FeaineWed, Brightblade 2, $ibuu$, Mumin, Dark Knight 64, Brosef, SammieBeamen, Babalookan). Wonderful Job guys!!
and 8 gaining 2 stars
Our average destruction went up again to a wonderful 93.3%, while the enemy’s was down to 80.2%
We had an average attack duration of 2min. 15sec. similar to their 2min 13sec
Babalookan once again had the most heroic attack, SammieBeamen had the most heroic defense.
Pixy will be the Keeper for this round, we expect next war to start Monday 4th 7pm Pacific Time. You are welcome to visit SAW to watch attack replays, but please don’t stay more than an hour, after that return to your clan. In the request please write “Checking attack replays”

See you later friends and remember: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STARS !!  YAAAAA !!!!!

SAW’s War #3

We are definitely up to a good start with the 3rd War in Solamnia at War. Another Victory for us. Participation was again very high, although we did not achieve 100% because of one single attack.

Victory was achieved with a score of 39-24. This enemy (BlackOp’s) was a very confident clan at first but their motivation dropped as our clan went on an attack after another bringing home lots of stars. Our average destruction was a very high 92.1%, their was 72.1%.
We had 11 3-star attacks (our highest so far) and 2 two-star attacks. Our average attack was 2 minutes and 7 seconds, almost one full minute less than allotted time, which means our attacks were swift and deadly.
Babalookan had both the most heroic attack and most heroic defense. Good job Baba!

Next war will be Wednesday July 30th, 8pm Pacific Time. Hope to see many of you there!
REMEMBER: 2 attacks are MANDATORY, penalty Demotion for a month.

SAW’s 2nd War

Second war for Solamnia at War just ended with another victory. We scared the enemy clan right away and ended with a 46 – 22 score. Unfortunately we didn’t obtain a perfect attendance because we had two unknown members who were let in before war started (the rule is we do not let anyone in the war clan unless we know and trust that person to do his/her two attacks) plus one of our own who didn’t fight.
We had 20 members in this war (3 completely inactive).
Our average destruction was pretty high at 85.9%, just a little under last war’s.
This time we had 8 3-stars and 11 2-stars. Definitely an improvement.
Our two most heroic attacks were performed by Ffynn and Babalookan.

Next war is scheduled for Saturday 8pm California time/11pm Eastern (New York).
If you want to battle and commit to two attacks please join before war starts, but not too soon.

Solamnia at War (SAW) first war

Friends,

I’m very excited to announce that Solamnia at War (SAW) first war was a huge success. Not only we won by a landslide with a score of 34 – 20 but we had a 100% participation. That’s right! Every single member used his/her two attacks and that’s the way we like it.
Our average destruction was 86.5%, the enemy’s only 66.8%. We had six 3-stars and Eight 2-stars.
Good job all of you who fought and won this first war:
Pixy, Dev, Ffynn, BCloveday, FeaineWed, AA1lb, $Ibuu$, Kuzeed, Dark Knight 64, Abdullah, Jetty Plane 12, SammieBeamen, Noe, ChiefGu$$yWu$$y… and me 🙂

Keep up the Good Job!

Our New War Clan

Today “Solamnia at War” joins our family of clans. This clan is not a permanent clan, but used just for wars. Members from Solamnia and Pax Tarkas are encouraged to participate as these two clans will not fight wars anymore (for the time being). Members of Xak Tsaroth are also welcome to join although Xak Tsaroth will continue to fight its own wars as well. As soon as the two battles have been fought members should return to their original clans, war results will be posted here after every war. You will still be able to collect your loot. In this War Clan 100% participation is mandatory.

Please check the Strategy page for updated rules.
