The most important thing in a new member is a willingness to learn and the ability to execute what is being taught. As a new member you will be on an evaluation period for your first war with FAILED SAINTS. You will be required to attack a base either at your same TH level or one TH level lower. You will be evaluated based on your performance (not necessarily how many stars you win but on your attack strategy) and then the leadership will privately discuss next steps for each new member.
There are only 2 LEVELS of leadership in this clan: Leaders and Elders. (Co-Leaders carry the same weight as the “Leader”)
LEADERS: If you are branded with a “co-leader” title, you are a leader. The “co” means nothing. As a leader you are required to sign up for a GroupMe account. We will be using GroupMe as our main means of private discussions about member and clan issues. Leaders are required to be very active in the clan – offering advice to members about attack strategies, maintaining the highest donation rations, and keeping up the morale of the team in chat. Its a lot of responsibility, but its the most important role within the clan. If you feel that you would be unable to take on these responsibilities at any time, please ask for a demotion until you are in a place where you would be able to commit the necessary time to the leader role.
ELDERS: The elders in this clan are essentially the “co-leaders”. This promotion will be given out to members who have consistently performed exceptionally in war, support the leadership staff in their goal to teach members effective strategies, have maintained a high level of donations within the clan, and are very active members. The elder role seems to always go overlooked, but in this clan, it is a VERY important role. Elders will also need to sign up for a GroupMe account and will be involved in almost all of the leadership discussions (final votes on members and strategies will be voted on by the leaders, but elders will be polled for their position on clan issues) If at any time an elder feels they are unable to keep up with the elder duties, they may ask for a demotion and be considered for elder again when they have more time to devote to the game.
We love war in this clan. This being said, we have a very specific and organized way that we do war here.
DONATIONS: War donations are only to be made by the members in the clan with the highest level troops. War time is the only time that members are allowed to request certain levels of troops. If you do not have the level of troop or type of troop being requested, do not donate to the player who is requesting.
RESERVING AN ATTACK: For every war there will be an entry on our blog titled “War Base Claim”. The entry will consist of the name of our opponent and a brief kick off message. Each member of our clan is allowed to reserve one attack. To reserve an attack, comment on the thread under the entry with your player name and the number of the base you would like to reserve. Reserved attacks must be completed within 6 hours after the war begins. CLAIMED BASES TAKE PRIORITY OVER RECOMMENDED BASES! What this means is that if your rec has been claimed by someone else on our blog, you must wait until they attack it first before you are allowed to.
CHOOSING A BASE TO ATTACK:
At FAILED SAINTS we ask that you attack your equally ranked base, 3 above your rank, or 3 below your rank. More about this process can be found by clicking the button above titled “Choosing A War Opponent”. The most important thing is that you bring home the stars while leaving some meat on the bone for our lower level players. It is always our goal to win as a team, so be sure to think of the other members before thinking about your own glory.
We ask in this clan that you donate as much as you ask for (or at least within the same ballpark) If it is noticed that your donation levels are extremely off-balanced, a member of the leadership team will bring it to your attention and ask you to re-balance your donations. There is not a specific number of donations that any member needs to maintain, just be sure to give as much as you receive.
It is our goal in this clan to have fun, bring up new players, create strong warriors, kick ass, and have an outstanding time while doing all of this. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask in the chat room, or even better, post your question here on the blog so that everyone can benefit from reading it. You may ask a question that someone else was thinking of. I will answer all questions ASAP. If you feel like an important point has been left off of this list please let us know and it will be added right away! Thanks so much for joining FAILED SAINTS! Now go build your armies and pick a fight with someone!
