Clans are a feature where players can congregate and try to push themselves to their best potential while receiving and giving help from friends and competing with other Clans, to prove their skill in Clash Royale. Clanmates can donate cards to each other and work together to fight Clan Wars. Once the player has completed the tutorial, they are allowed to join or create a Clan. However, the player must be at least King Level 3 to request cards. The player can initiate Friendly Battles in a Clan. One will not get any rewards from them, nor will they lose or gain trophies. In a Clan, players are able to share replays from both their own battle log and TV Royale. Clans can have up to 50 members.
Starting a Clan
- To create a brand new clan, the player has to complete the tutorial.
- They must also pay 1,000 Gold to create a clan.
- When these requirements are met, the player can choose the name of their clan, tweak the badge, description, and settings to their liking, and at last create the clan.
- Once the clan is created, the creator of the clan automatically becomes the leader of the clan.
Donations and Requests
- While in a Clan, players are able to donate and request cards to clanmates.
- Players can request every 7 hours for cards of their choosing. They are allowed to request for any Common or Rare card they have unlocked. Players in higher Arenas can both receive and donate more cards.
- They can choose to speed up the request cooldown using Gems at the rate of 1 gem per 10 minutes, the same as instantly opening Chests.
- On Epic Sundays, players are allowed to request Epic cards once. The number of Epics they can request at one time is equal to the number of Rares they can request.
- Legendaries cannot be requested.
- Players can respond to any donation requests by donating cards of their own. They will receive 1 XP/SP and 5 Gold for each Common card donated or 10 XP/SP and 50 Gold for each Rare card donated. For every Epic card donated, they get 10 XP/SP and 500 Gold.
- In the case that their card is at the max level, they can donate for free. In this case, the player will only get the XP/SP.
- Clan-wide donations are reset on a weekly basis at midnight GMT on Sunday.
|Arena||Donations||Requests||Daily Donation Limit|
|1||1 Common or 1 Rare||10 Commons or 1 Rare||90|
|2||2 Commons or 1 Rare|
|4||4 Commons or 1 Rare||20 Commons or 2 Rares||180|
|7||6 Commons or 1 Rare||30 Commons or 3 Rares||270|
|10||8 Commons or 1 Rare||40 Commons or 4 Rares||360|
Daily Donation Limit
- The Daily Donation Limit is a restriction that prevents the player from donating a virtually infinite amount of cards per day, which in turn prevents the player from earning large amounts of Gold and Experience per day. The Daily Donation Limit limits each player to donate a certain amount of cards a day. For example, if a player is in the Royal Arena, they are allowed to donate 270 cards, or 9 times the request capacity for Common cards in that Arena (30). As they enter higher Arenas, their donation limit will increase. As a result of this, a player can only earn a maximum of 1,800 Gold (except Epic Sundays) and 360 Experience/Star Points from donating cards per day.
- Donating a Common Card counts as 1 card to this limit, and donating a Rare or Epic Card counts as 10 cards to this limit.
- The Daily Donation Limit, as its name suggests, resets daily.
- Main article: Trade Tokens
- While in a Clan, players with King Level 8 or higher can trade cards with other members of the Clan.
- To do so, players need to use Trade Tokens to start a trade. Other players can accept the trade by spending a corresponding Trade Token of their own.
- Players can trade any rarity of card, and can even request a card they haven't unlocked if they could unlock it through other means in their Arena.
- Players can accept one trade every 15 minutes.
- The clan score is calculated using the following weighting:
|Ranks||Value (of the total)|
- Note that although this is commonly called "Clan Trophies", it shouldn't be confused with the purple Clan Trophies that indicates the performance of a Clan in Clan Wars.
- Clan Leaders can choose between three settings for "type of clan" when starting, which can also be changed later:
- Open: Anyone can join, provided they have the minimum amount of Trophies required.
- Invite Only: Players can request to join (provided they have the minimum number of trophies) and anyone invited can join regardless of the trophy limit. Clan Elders, Co-Leaders and Leaders have the position of power to decline requests.
- Closed: The Clan does not accept new people joining unless they are invited.
- The Clan Name is set at the Clan's creation, and cannot be changed later.
- The Clan Badge can be set and changed whenever a Clan Leader wants to.
- Leaders, and Co-leaders (see below) can change Clan Settings, including the required Trophy count and Clan location.
- It is important to note that clanmates will NOT be automatically kicked as a result of not having the minimum amount of Trophies.
- There are four different roles within a Clan: Member, Elder, Co-Leader and Leader.
- Members have no special privileges within a Clan. They cannot kick or promote, nor change the Clan Settings. This is the default role when players join a clan.
- Elders are the first level of promotion. They are able to kick members once every 20 minutes and invite or accept players to the Clan, but are not able to change the Clan Settings.
- Co-Leaders are the second level of promotion. They can kick/promote/demote members and elders, recruit/accept players, and are able to change the Clan Settings. They can also send clan mail by clicking "Message" on the Clan's main menu. By tapping on a player's name, they can tap "Nudge" to send a automatic message to that player which reminds them to complete their attacks in Clan Wars. They can also promote Elders to Co-Leaders, but cannot demote Co-Leaders.
- The Leader is, for the most part, the player who created a Clan, but they can demote themselves while promoting someone else to the role of Leader. They have the same privileges as Co-leaders, however, the Leader is the only player in the Clan who can kick and demote everyone, no matter the player's role. Transferring leadership of a clan will demote the transferring player's role to Co-Leader, and their desired player will take the Leader role.
- One may access a friend list and their profiles through the home screen.
- This lists one's Facebook/Game Center friends and shows which of them are online. For Chinese players, QQ/WeChat friends can be accessed here.
- From this interface, the player may start a Friendly Battle with any friend even if they aren't in the same Clan, or they can spectate them in a battle.
- The player can also directly invite friends to join them in a 2v2 battle.
