Opponents with a similar score will fight against each other, this means that your clan will be matched against clans with a similar amount of trophies. The amount of trophies each clan has represents the group’s skills and is how matchmaking is determined.

As your clan begins to climb the rankings by gaining more and more trophies, the trophy difference may become bigger and bigger. Some of the reasons for this may be caused by the following:
  • Fewer clans further up the ladder don't have as many trophies as your clan, so the server widens the trophy pool to search for another clan.
  • Some clans around your clans trophy amount may not be participating in the next war
  • You may have played a clan with similar trophies recently and the server is trying to match your clan to someone you haven't battled against.
