First Day of CWL Two

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

Our first battle will be against AE AN NINH. They are out of Vietnam.  They have more TH12 than we do and at first glance, it looks very bad for us.  However, they are weak at the bottom of the map with a TH6, 7 and 8. We have all TH9s, 10s, 11, and 3 TH12s.  One of our 12s is very weak defensively.

However, they have four bases that may not be able to get a single star and that will put them in a deep hole. Hopefully, out 10s and 11s can put a  decent fight at the top of the map against their fairly weak TH12s.

Weight Comparison for Ae An Ninh


I think we will win this war.

The Action During the War

Twenty Hours Remaining in War

The score is 9 to 17. We have attacked three times while they have attacked 8 times.  They are dipping on a lot of their attacks. I suppose because of the three weak bases at the bottom of the map that can contribute very little.

Battle Map vs Ae An Ninh
After War Battle Map vs Ae An Ninh


They have already attacked out bottom two and failed to three-star them.  One of their TH10s failed to three-star our top TH9 with a mass miner attack. They used their wall-wrecker to pull the CC troops and kill them. To me, that seems like a major waste.

They are not very good attackers but their massive advantage in Town Hall levels will make it hard for us.

Our number 2 TH9 used a GoWiPe to three-start their top TH9. It took less than two minutes as the base was a box.

.

Nineteen Hours Remaining in War

The score is 15 to 17. We have attacked 5 times while they have attacked 8 times. They have only two TH12 attacks remaining. I don’t think that will get them six stars. Maybe only 4.  They have not attacked our number 1 and got a 1 star on our number 2. We have a TH11 that has not been attacked yet. They also have a TH11 that has not attacked. That will probably add three more stars to their score.

Sixteen Hours Remaining in War

The score is 24 to 24 We have attacked 9 times while they have attacke 12.  I think they can get four to five more stars at most.

Results of Round 1
CWL 2 Round 1 Results

They have one TH11 attack remaining that will likely three star one of our 9s. After that, they have a TH9 with level 2 dragons but level 4 lab. I think the most it can get is one star, maybe two. They also have a TH8 with level 1 dragons and level 3 giants so it maybe can three-star one of our bottom two 9s but they have already been two starred. I doubt it can three-star one of those.

Fourteen Hours Remaining in War

Their last remaining Th9 attempted to three-star our bottom base and failed.  They have a TH8 with an attack left. If they attack, I suspect they will add no stars. Their TH11 will 3-star one of our 9s so they will end up with a score of 27. We have 24 stars and six attacks remaining. I think we’ll get four more stars.

It appears they made the choice not to attack our number 1. They got only a 1 star on our number 2 TH12.

Mr. Rasche made his first war appearance with a solid 2-star on a TH12 with his TH11.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle Day One

We won this war with a final score of 37 to 27.  There TH11 waited until the last thirty minutes to take out one of our 9s.   I see that a lot. I think that clans hope we won’t notice they have an easy three-star and that we will slack off thinking we have the war won. It’s mostly clans that are full of children that do that.

Victory vs Ae An Ninh


The star of the show was happy with a 3-star attack on a TH11 with her TH10.

Second Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

Harvest Loon is out of Ghana.  They took all TH10s and higher to their first war but gave us a gift and brought five TH9s and a TH8 to war against us.

Profile for Harvest Loon
Clash of Clans Profile for Harvest Loon

I thought they would bring those 10s again and we’d have very little chance. But since they brought those nines and only one 12, I think we will win this war.

The Action During the War

Seventeen Hours Remaining in War

They had an early lead but ever attack was a two-star.  We were slow to get started and now the score is 21 to 11. We have attacked 8 times and they have attacked 6 times.

Harvest Loon Battle Map


Our TH9s have opened up a lead for us with nothing but three-star attacks so far. Except, one of our nines had to attack a TH10 and managed an 81 percent two-star attack.

Two of their 11s have attacked and both got 2 stars.

Fourteen Hours Remaining in War

Their number 1 attacked our number 7 for  1 star and 48 percent.

We have attacked 9 times. The score is 23 to 12.  They have attacked 7 times.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We won this war with a final score of 37 to 23. They didn’t attack our top two bases and we three-starred their top two.

Final Score  vs Harvest Loon


They left three of our bases with no attacks on them.

Third Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

JC’s clan is out of the Philippines. The troubling thing is that they have only 1 TH9.  They have a TH11 at the bottom so a TH9 might have trouble getting three stars on even the bottom base.

Profile for JC Clan


Most of our TH9s will face Th10s so I expect our three-star rate to be lower than normal.  Their score in the last war was only 26 points though. A clan we scored 37 points on.

They have only 1 TH12 while we have three and our bases are generally much stronger than theirs. We do have one weak TH12. It appears they like to use Electro Dragons at the top of their map but you never know.

This appears to be a one-person clan.

It’s hard to predict the outcome but I think we will win.

The Action During the War

Sixteen Hours Remaining in War

The score is 17 to 10. We have attacked 7 times while they have attacked 4 times.

They appear to be dipping and plan not to attack both of our TH12s. I don’t think they are going to be able to do that.

Two of our nine did get only one star. One of those was vs a Th10.  The result of the other attack is not making much sense to me.

I think we will struggle a bit in the middle but the chance of five three stars at the top is very high.  

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We won this war with a final score of 38 to 12.  JC’s clan attacked only 6 times which highly surprised me.

The final score vs JC Clan


Their last attack was their number 1 on our number 1. He used Edrags and gave us our first and only outright defense. He attacked with three minutes left in the game. I’m guessing he wanted to show us what his Edrags could do. Well, he showed us.

We finished day three in first place in our league with a total of 142 stars. Hokage is in second place with 138 stars.

Fourth Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

We are facing 94.IDT.HOI in our fourth battle in this CWL.

Profile for 94 IDT Hoit

They appear strong with 2 TH12s to our 3 TH12s. The issue is they have six TH11s to our 1 TH11. So our TH10s will be going up against TH11s and even two of our TH9s are facing TH11s.

It appears they will be using a lot of mass miner with a QW in their attacks. Of course, that could always change but I don’t think so. That’s all they have cooked in their top bases for the last two days.

War Map vs 94


The good thing I see is that they are doing very poorly in the wars so far. They have scored only 62 points in total for the first three battles while we have scored 142.  

For that reason, I think we will win this war.

The Action During the War

Nineteen Hours in War

Not very many attacks yet but the big news is that their defensive CCs are empty. That will help us a great deal.

The score is 11 to 2. One of their TH9s went up and attacked Stormheart for two stars.

Destruction vs 94

Jessie used three of her TH9s to three-star their bottom 3 bases in the first few minutes of the war.

Stormheart has attacked a TH11 with an Eagle Artillery for 2 stars at 58 percent.

We have attacked 4 times while they have attacked once. That attack on storm means that TH11 will not likely to be attacking our Stormheart.  Of course, it can go down and take out another 9. Still, that leaves Stormheart still standing. It was a bad call.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We easily won this war. The final score was 37 to 21.

Defeat of 94


The attacked only 10 times.

They played it to get stars and never attacked our 12s. Still, they obtained only 3 three-star attacks.

Fifth Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

This day brings us Calgary ready for war. They are, of course, out of Canada.


It looks bad for us.  They brought only 2 9s but on prep day they had no nines so they helped us out a little. On the bright side, they have no TH12s in the war. But, they do have a TH12 in the clan so they do have access to siege machines.

We should lose this war but this clan but they lost to Harvest Loon. We dominated Harvest Loon in day one of this CWL.  They may be very poor attackers. For that reason, I’ll cautiously predict we will win this war.

The Action During the War

Twelve Hours Remaining in War

The score is 19 to 5. We have attacked 9 times while they have attacked 4 times.  

Battle Map vs Calgary

There number 10, a Th10, gave us an outright defense when attacking our TH9 at the same map position.

We have two three-star attacks while they have 2 two-star attacks, a 1-star attack, and a no-star attack.

They are in a deep hole that I don’t think they can get out of.

Two Hours Remaining in War

They have given us three outright defenses.  

The score is 26 to 15. We have attacked 12 times while they have attacked 10.

We have three attacks left that will come from one TH11 and 2 TH 12s.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We easily won this war.  They ended up giving us three outright defenses. No way they could come back from that.


Final Score vs Calgary

The final score was 35 to 23.

We ended the round in first place.  

Standings After Round Five
First Place after Five Rounds in CWL 2

Both clans took all 15 attacks.

Sixth Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

Golden Alpha is an international clan and part of a large clan family.


Profile of Golden Alpha from Clash of Clans

They have been doing very poorly with fewer points for the season than we have scored in fewer points for the season than we scored for a single war.

For this reason, I think we will easily win this war despite their TH advantage. They have only one TH9 in the war. We have one more TH12 but they have many TH11s. Our TH9s will have to attack TH11s.

It appears they are intentionally losing in order to gain an advantage in following CWL seasons.

The Action During the War

One Hour Remaining in War

They have attacked only 2 times.  The score is 38 to 3.

We have completed all of our attacks.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We easily won this war but that was expected. This clan is just gaming the system for an unfair upper hand in their next CWL.

The final score was 38 to 3.

Golden Alpha Loses


The only attacked twice. We took all of our attacks.

We had 9 three star attacks and Tertius with a TH10  got a 98 percent two-star on a Th11.

Seventh Day of CWL

Opposing Clan and Initial Assessment

The final day of CWL 2 brings up against another undefeated clan.  We will face, Hoakage.Ph CL who are out of the Philippines.

Clash of Clans Profile for Hokage.PH CL

It’s a fairly even match. We have an extra 12 and they have an extra 10. The TH11 that our TH12 is matched against is a max TH11 and I will be the TH12 going up against it. I’m not very seasoned at TH12.  I still should have the advantage but I know I’m not all that strong when attacking at TH12. I badly need to three-star because they have an extra TH10 in the war. Very unlikely our TH9 can three-star a TH10.

I don’t have a good feeling about this war. I cannot predict that we will win nor can I predict we will lose. I can predict with some confidence that it will be close.

Battle Map vs Hokage


Most of their bases are max on both offense and defense. Giving us little room for mistakes.

Based on their previous wars, it appears they like to save one or two low bases to pick up stars on during the last hour of war.  That tactic will have no effect on us.

The Action During the War

Eighteen Hours Remaining in War

We are not off to a fantastic start.  My TH9 got into trouble due to golem being dropped about three tiles from where it should have been. The left side healers go on the golem and the witches died. The other side got into the double AD and their healers died. That was not unexpected. That misplaced golem ruined my attack.

Thunder had a good attack but only a sixty-six two star. The base was very difficult and I didn’t expect much more. One Cannon could have done better vs a max TH11. I think I was a little burned out at that point.

Hokage STats 1

MrRasche had an early three-star attack. At least we’ve had no one-star attacks yet. Their TH9 bases are all good and anti-witch slap. So I’m worried.

The good news is that most of their CCs do not have any defensive troops. A few have 5 troops and those appear to be goblins hoping to spoil a queen walk.

Hokage Stats 2


The score is 9 to three. We have taken 4 attacks while they have taken two. One was a hog attack on Jessie for only 1 star. The other was a mass miner with a queen walk attack vs our number 1 for a 75% two star.

It appears they will save our two bottom bases hoping to pick up three-stars at the end of the war. Do they think we won’t notice?

Sixteen Hours Remaining in War

The score is 22 to 15. We have attacked 9 times and they have attacked 6 times.

Final Standing CWL 2

It’s going to be a close war but that has been expected from the start. Their first TH9 attack got them only one star but the rest have been three-stars.

We have not been able to three-star any of their TH10s so far and probably won’t. If they can three-star our tens we will lose this war.  One of their TH10s is a TH10 only in name. It’s defenses and offenses are still all at TH9.

We had a heartbreaking 99 percent two star on one of their nines. Only the Queen’s alter was left behind.

Fifteen Hours Remaining in War

The score is 23 to 15. We have taken 10 attack and they have taken 6.  We had a one-star effort at TH10 so we lost our advantage there. We have two TH10s that are new to war at TH10 and my TH12 is also new to war.  


Round 7 CWL 2 Results

I’m not feeling too good about things right now.  We have not lost this war but we are not winning it either. Only one person has attacks left and he has five attacks. He’s good but I don’t know if he can do enough.

One Hour Remaining in War

I really hoped we would go 7 and 0 but we have lost this war.  The score is 35 to 38 with all attacks taken.

Promoted to Crystal 2


They never attacked 1 cannon and instead went opted to three-star a TH9 what had already been attacked. They re-attacked with a TH10.

Results of Clan War Leagues Battle

We lost this war. The final score was 35 to 38.

We had two 99 percent attacks but we still would have lost by one. We also had two 1 star attacks. Those four foul ups would  have given us the win.

Loss to Hokage


The two 99 percent attacks are partly just luck but mistakes were made there too. Those just always hurt the most.

Destruction Comparison vs Hokage

The golem that I dropped about two tiles in the wrong place is going to haunt me. I had a three-star base and I ended up with 2 stinking stars on it.

So we could have won this war but they were good and they beat us.

Season Results

We ended this season in our group at second place. With a record of 6-1. Hokage remained unbeaten.

Trolls in CWL

One clan threw their season and scored only 36 points for the entire season.  They want to fall to an easier league where they will just dominate the next time. This is not a good strategy. They could have gotten hundreds more points by fighting in both seasons. In my opinion, the only reason to do this is to troll. Or they just think they are beating the system which would be misguided. The only thing that beat was themselves.

Next season we will be in Crystal 2. I wonder if we’ll be able to compete. We need to progress more.  Then we can compete.
