Here is the Clan Wars main-page this is all about.

 

 

Currently, all players are playing on patch 1.06. To play 1.06, you need to download 1.03 and 1.05 first.  After that, Patch 1.06 can be downloaded directly through the T3A:Online launcher, or on T3A. If the default zoom feels too close, you can always download the _WSMaps.big which allows you to zoom-out further.

 

 

Clan Wars Introduction Guide 

 

Here is a basic guide to help people get started with the CW site.

 

Getting Started:

Creating an account: Go to the clanwars.cc website and click register, which is located in the top right of the page. Enter the required information and then click on "join clanwars".

- Next you will be asked to join leagues. Search in the league list and find The Battle for Middleearth league, then join the league. The name you put in there will be your Clan Wars name for playing Clan War games, so make sure you enter the right name you want play with. 

 

Creating a Clan: - You are now entered in the BFME league but you are not part of a clan yet. 

                             - To create a clan just click on the League Board "create clan".

 

post-110104-1389648882.jpg

 

- Now fill in your clans' information. When you don't have a clan website (most players don't have that) just fill in any website you like and finish this step. 

 

 

post-110104-1389648941.jpg
 

 

- Your clan is created but how can you invite clan members to your clan? 

 

- As clan boss your find this on your League Board named "Roster Invites". Click on it. 

 

post-110104-1389649417.jpg

 

- In the next step you fill in the name (the name he used in "join leagues") of your mate who you want to invite to your clan and click "invite".

 

post-110104-1389649429.jpg

 

- Now the other player has to accept this invitation of the clan boss to join the clan. Therefore he gets a PM of the clan boss which is shown in the right corner "1 unread PM". Open this.  

 

post-110104-1389649445.jpg

 

- Reply to the PM and check "Accept Invite". 

 

post-110104-1389648903.jpg

 

- Like this you can add as many players as you wish into your clan and start playing. =)

 

Reporting a Loss:

- After a cw match is played, the loser of the match must report at the clanwars website. It's very Important that you always do this, even after losing a frustrating game. Fairness in the most important value in Clan Wars.

- Login to your account and at the left side of the screen click on "League Navigation", then look down the list and find "report loss".

 

post-110104-1389649259.jpg

- Follow the prompts for selecting your opponents, select the clan first and then the warriors. Make sure to include what faction each participant was. Then click on "continue".

 

post-110104-1389649280.jpg

 

 

post-110104-1389649355.jpg

 

 

- You will then be taken to a summary screen, check over what you have entered and make sure it is accurate. Then click "Submit Report"

 

 

post-110104-1389649401.jpg

 

What to do when the opponent doesn't report the game? 

 

Auto Reporting:

- Auto Reporting (commonly called an AR) is a tool used by the winning clan to report a victory if the losing clan has not reported in a timely manner. Most clans will report soon after the match is over, but if the report is not there just kindly ask the clan if they could please report the match. If the loss continues to go unreported then you may file an AR. 

- Login to your account and click League Navigation. Look down the list and select "unreported match". 

 

post-110104-1389783520.jpg

 

- Fill in the match information and click "Proceed to Next Step". Make sure you put all informations in. 

 

post-110104-1389783544.jpg

 

- Check your entry and click "Submit AR".

 

post-110104-1389783544.jpg

 

- The site will now ask you to include the replay. Upload the replay of the game and the AR is done.

 

post-110104-1389783557.jpg

 

- All ARs MUST INCLUDE THE REPLAY. NO AR WILL BE PROCESSED WITHOUT A REPLAY. keep this in mind, there are no exceptions, no replay= no AR. 

  Because of this make sure to save every Clan Wars win to be able for an AR if your opponent doesn't report the CW. 

 

- Penalties for ARs will be handled by the Clan Wars admin. But you can be sure to lose much more points to an AR against you than reporting it by yourself right after the game. 

 

 

What to do when your opponent reported the games wrong ?

 

Altered Match (AM):

- Altered match, referred to as AM, is a tool used to edit the information of a match, such as wrong factions listed for a warrior, or to settle a disputed game caused by a bug or glitch that has greatly impacted the outcome of the match.

- If you feel a glitch/bug has occured and you have lost the match but feel it was directly caused by the glitch or bug, you must first report the loss as you normally would.

- After reporting look to the left of the screen and click on "League Board". This will take you to the forums for BFME cw.

 

post-110104-1389785785.jpg

 

- Click on "Altered Matches".

 

post-110104-1389785799.jpg

 

- On the right of the screen click on "File AM".

 

post-110104-1389785811.jpg
 

- You will need to enter the match ID of the game you reported which can be found to the left of the match under the battle logs section, which is located under the league navigation section.

- Fill out the required information and include a brief but concise description of what happened and why it affected the outcome of the game.

 

post-110104-1389785853.jpg
 

- Now upload the replay of the game and the AM is done.
- Admins will then watch the replay and conclude whether or not the AM will be granted.

 

post-110104-1389785866.jpg

 

Be sure to read over the league rules found in the support/info section of the site, especially the ones dealing with disconnections and bugged buildings/glitches etc

It is also best to save each replay from your matches just to be safe in the instance that a problem occurs and the admins need to check the replay for validity.

Now have fun on Clan Wars and enjoy this great league. =)

I would be interested in some history about clanwars. When did it start, who build it up first, are there old clans from the beginning still existing? What was the impact of 1.02 for example, was it more 1v1 or 2v2 in the beginning? What was the brightest moments in general activity/big tournaments, maybe even personally for you (meaning every cw player reading this :p)?

And maybe interesting: what has somebody to do of he/she wants to participate?

"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."

I don't know too much about the beginning days of clanwars. All I know is that it started sometime 2004/2005. I never played on 1.00/1.01/1.02 so I cannot tell you anything about that. I know that at the end of 1.02/beginning of 1.03 a lot of 2v2 was played in clanwars, since there was Quick Match for 1v1. I think it was pretty much the same when I started playing cw in 2009, there was definitely more 2v2 than 1v1. Nowadays I feel like there's a lot more 1v1 than 2v2, which is probably because there's less people playing cw and obviously no QM. But yeah, 2v2 players like me can still get a game in quite often in CW so it's not that bad, I guess.

 

 

And maybe interesting: what has somebody to do of he/she wants to participate?

 

Basically what yoshi said: You have to register on clanwars.cc (usual registration progress), then create a nick name you want to play under. You can create multiple names, so should you be in a position leave your clan to join another one, you can simply create a new nickname for that, or continue using the old nickname; it's up to you. I used to play with a different nick almost every month and therefore all my names got deleted since you have to have a minimum of games played on a name in order for it to not be deleted after a while (I think 70+, not sure though), so in case you want your success (or non-success =P) to be shown in your profile you better don't do that.

 

After you successfully created your nickname, you either join a clan or create one. I actually don't know whether you can apply for a clan membership as I always got invited into the clans I played for since I played with people I knew.

I would also like to remind that not reporting factions will cause you lose more points than you should from your lost.

Are there any clans for BFME 1 or just 2? I joined the BFME 1 league and there aren't any active clans. If not, than are there any xbox360 clans for 2? I only have 2 for the 360.

Are you playing bfme 2 with xbox360? I have to say that I have no experience with that and don't know any xbox player. 

 

About BFME 1 CW. This month you are right there is no activity. But this can change soon. There are "active clans" (including mine) but they are not playing at the moment. 

 

Nevertheless you can try to start the April-CW-season by hosting "CW games". Players might join. :)

Ty Duro :) 

Well the league in not active atm. There are always periods like this around a year. Sometimes it's enough that two or three players starting playing CW again. Others recognize this and coming back for a season and CW is active again. :) It just has to happen !

Well, do you think it will happen again? I remember the glory days of this site. Well they werent really gloryous, but you saw people always online, as i remember you couldnt really get a match quick but you were able to play on the site regularly. My skill in the EA days was not that great but i had my ways. The chances of the site getting alive again are probably slick right?
