So there was some discussion today on the message board about what the best way to go about attacking was.
I disagree with the idea that we should attack every single player in the other clan. I think there is some value in making sure you get 3 stars from your battles.
There are going to be inactive members in every clan. We need to plan for that. I think 3 staring the bottom 25-30 members would get us a win. I think we will only find out with time but I think it would be pointless to spend our time on the top members when we can get easy stars from the bottom members.
If we all go for attacking the weaker players, then OUR weaker players will not have anyone to battle. We all get 2 attacks so we will eventually HAVE to attack everyone. I think we need to let the weaker players attack first, make sure they get their 3-stars, then the stronger players can kind-of "bat cleanup". If we can all find one player that we can get a guaranteed 2 stars, I think we will win. No clan is going to have all their players get 3 stars but I think if we average > 2 stars then we can win.
As for the bonus, I believe everyone gets a different bonus depending on who they attack, what level they are and what is available for loot. Then on top of that, there is a bonus for winning as well as a decrement for losing.
That would be good but it couldn't be a firm schedule since we have people playing from all over the world (US, England, Hong Kong, etc.). But I think just use good judgement on when and who to attack. Also, MagicD and I are putting together some rules that I want to post eventually. We need to get together to discuss this too.
