In League with Your Clan

In Clan Battles, you and your Clan clash for points to climb to the top. The Clan Rating system is made up of four Leagues:

  • Squall League  (Start Here)
  • Gale League
  • Storm League
  • Typhoon League (Top Dogs!) 

Each League has three Groups, each requiring 100 points to ascend to the next. All points beyond that 100 roll over into the next Group/League. All Clans start in Group II of the Squall League. Your Clan gains or loses points in each Clan Battle depending on the outcome: 

  • Victory: Average of +25 points
  • Defeat: Average of -25 points
  • Draw: 0 to -3 points

Once they've climbed through every group in the League, your Clan must fight through a series of five Progression Battles and win at least three of them. A victory sends your Clan to the next League with a 35-point bonus, while a defeat keeps your Clan in the same league with a 35-point loss. If your Clan doesn't fight the Progression Battles, they don't advance! 

Alternatively, if your Clan loses enough points to fall to the bottom of their current League, they must win three out of five Relegation Battles to keep from getting kicked down to the league below with a 35-point penalty. However, they get a 35-point bonus if they succeed.  Once your Clan hits zero points in Squall League, Group 3, they've hit rock bottom and won't lose any additional points. 

At the end of the Season, the top Clan is honored in a special in-game loading screen.

 Clan Divisions

If you select the "Clan Battle" type, a Clan's Senior Command Staff (except officers) of Account Level 15 can form Clan Divisions using the standard Division interface. Any Clan member can join that Division. Multiple Divisions from the same Clan can be in queue to battle at the same time. 

"Clan Battles" Matchmaking: 

  • Your Clan's ranking is factored into the process
  • Your Division is matched up based on Clan's League and group
  • Your Division can't be matched against a Division you just fought
  • Divisions from the same Clan won't be matched against each other

Economics & Missions

The economics of battle winnings is a lot different in Clan Battles. 

Clan Battle Economics By the Numbers

  • Minimum Victory Payout per Individual: 2,500 Base XP + 300,000* Credits 
  • Minimum Defeat/Draw Payout per Individual: 250 base XP + 150,000* Credits
  • Service Cost for Tier X Ships: 180,000 Credits
  • Free XP Bonus per Battle: +300%

*Keep in mind that this is the base Credit payout before ammunition costs, repair costs, consumables, etc. Modifiers from camouflage, signal flags, Premium time, etc. also affect payouts. 

If a battle ends before four and a half minutes, neither team gets XP or Credit rewards. Individuals who go the entire battle without inflicting any damage and don't travel a minimum distance will also be exempt from XP and Credit rewards.
