The Mirror Strategy is a strategy most clans use in clan wars. It involves attacking your "mirror", or the player in the enemy clan who is ranked the same of you.
First Attack: All players attack their mirror.
Second Attack: If you didn't three-star your mirror in the first attack, attack them again. Try a different army composition. If you did, good job! Wait for someone else to use both their attacks. If they don't three-star their mirror in both attacks, and you think you can three-star their mirror, attack their mirror for them.
This strategy is used because players are generally evenly matched with their mirrors.
This example shows a 10v10 war. All star numbers are randomly generated.
- Friend 1 attacks Enemy 1: 2-star
- Friend 2 attacks Enemy 2: 1-star
- Friend 3 attacks Enemy 3: 1-star
- Friend 4 attacks Enemy 4: 1-star
- Friend 5 attacks Enemy 5: 3-star
- Friend 6 attacks Enemy 6: 3-star
- Friend 7 attacks Enemy 7: 1-star
- Friend 8 attacks Enemy 8: 3-star
- Friend 9 attacks Enemy 9: 2-star
- Friend 10 attacks Enemy 10: 3-star
First, the players who did not three-star their mirror attack.
- Friend 1 attacks Enemy 1: 2-star: Best: 2
- Friend 2 attacks Enemy 2: 2-star: Best: 2
- Friend 3 attacks Enemy 3: 3-star: Best: 3
- Friend 4 attacks Enemy 4: 3-star: Best: 3
- Friend 7 attacks Enemy 7: 1-star: Best: 1
- Friend 9 attacks Enemy 9: 1-star: Best: 2
Friends 5, 6, 8, and 10 still have remaining attacks. Enemy 1 has been 2-starred, Enemy 2 has been 2-starred, Enemy 7 has been 1-starred, and Enemy 9 has been 2-starred. The remaining friends each pick an enemy they think they can destroy. Friend 10 will attempt Enemy 9. Friend 8 will attempt Enemy 7, and Friends 5&6 will both attempt Enemy 2, as neither believes they can defeat Enemy 1.
- Friend 5 attacks Enemy 2 first: 3-star: Best: 3
- Friend 6 decides to wait, in case Enemy 7 or 9 are not three-starred.
- Friend 8 attacks Enemy 7: 3-star: Best: 3
- Friend 10 attacks Enemy 9: 2-star: Best: 2
- Friend 6 then decides to attack Enemy 9: 2-star: Best: 2
In the end, the clan got 28/30 stars.
