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 ūüôā

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.
√ÄHickle 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!

War Record

After a definitive win, our record now stands at 10 wins – 3 Losses – 1 Draw.

SAW will be doing 3 back to back to back wars starting Sept. 29th @ 8 pm Pacific Time Zone.  We are doing a one week trial run where Pax and Xak do not war, and join SAW instead.

YAAA!

War #9, DRAW!!! (Record 7 – 1 – 1)

This war against ‘Khmer Style’ surprisingly ended in a draw 43 – 43.¬† At the last minute, Blinky, starving, bleeding, limping on one leg,¬†attacked against the odds, and the king made what looked to be an improbable B line right towards the TH to get our clan an unlikely two stars ending our war in a draw instead of a loss as many were expecting at the end.¬† I was floored Blinky!¬† U DA MAN!

On another note, everyone attacked twice, which we are very thankful for, except Abdullah.¬† Abdullah is MIA.¬† We will be conducting a search and rescue operation immediately.¬† We will stop at nothing to find and rescue him.¬† However, rumour has it, his mother confiscated his phone.¬† If that’s the case, you are on your own Abdullah.¬† We don’t mess with mom.¬† Abdullah, you must still declare your love for Justin Bieber.

007 award goes to no one because no one could spy.

Golden Warrior award goes to Baba for getting six stars in war!  You rock baba!

Silver Warrior award goes to Fynn, Hades, AA, Dark Night, Viking for getting at least one three star attack.

Deadly Defender award goes to Chief, Honey (3), Baba, Viking, Hades for successfully defending your base at some point in the war.  Props to Fynn for being too intimidating to attack.

Note on strategy:¬† It’s really important that the bottom 75% of players use their first attack right away.¬† That will then give other players a good idea as to where they need to fill in the gaps.¬† Similarly, top players should not hold on to both attacks¬†until the end.¬† That creates a domino effect of other top players not being able to attack.¬† Top players should use their first attack shortly after many have attacked.¬† It’s always hard to judge, but I was thinking that some of us attacked some opponents who were too low, while others attacked opponents who were too high.¬† Don’t go too low or two high.¬† An attack too high is a wasted attack.¬† An attack too low takes attacks away from our fellow lower players.¬† Don’t overthink too much as sometimes at the end you need to throw this logic out the window and do whatever you have to do to win.¬† Also, good job, giving and receiving advice guys.

Clash on!  YAAAAAA!

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 #8, Loss #1 :( Can’t win them all.

We were defeated by treeslayerz 45 Р53.  On a very positive note, we received 100% participation, which is something to congratulate ourselves on!  Our high participation has won us some wars in the past, but not this time.

We’ve got a lot of good things going for us, but I notice that the vast majority of the time in wars in Solamnia and SAW, we seem to always average less stars per attack then our enemy.¬† This could mean that many of us have poor attacking strategies for some reason.¬† If that is you, allow someone to coach you or check out some better attacking strategies online or on youtube.¬† We need to improve in this area.

I want to acknowledge Hades for donating the vast majority of the war castle troops.

007 award goes to Angel.¬† You rock my world!¬† Abdullah messed things up by spying when he was in the war and got caught!¬† Please don’t spy if you are in the war.¬† Let someone outside the war do the spying.

Gold Warrior Award goes to Dev, Flames for getting six starts.  You guys are my knight and shinning armor.  We want to be like you!

Silver Warrior Award goes to Pixy, Hades, AA, $lbuu$, Baba, Abdullah for getting one 3 star attack. You guys rock the kazbar!¬† There should be more guys on this list.¬† ūüôĀ

Deadly Defender goes to Blinky, Viking Max for defending at some point in the war.

Most heroic attack goes to Pixy.  Most heroic defense goes to Viking Max.  

Noe is the gatekeeper.  Next war is Monday.  Peace out!
