One of the most common game types on Clash of Clans are the raids. The matter of the fact is, that if you want to climb to the top of the leader boards in Clash of Clans then you will need to raid other players successfully.
The way the Clash of Clans raids game type works is that is matches you up with other random offline players that are within your Trophy range.
If you are using a shield to protect your village there will be a pop up telling you that attacking another player will disable your shield. You will then have the option to click “okay” in which will allow you to attack others. However, just don’t forget that your village can now be attacked as well.
Clash Of Clans Raids
There is a small cost to find any enemy to attack and it is all based on your Town Hall level. The higher your Town Hall level is the more it will cost to find an enemy to attack.
The cost is minimal compared to what you would receive if you were to successfully defeat the other player’s village.
When searching for a village to raid, Clash of Clans will show you a list of the Clans and players with the highest trohpy count and will also give you an option to search for Clans as well.
It will also show you and compare you to other players that have earned around the same amount of stars earned in the Single Player Campaign.
At the end of each raid you will be judged on how well you did by receiving either 1, 2 or 3 stars. If you only receive 1 or 2 stars then this means you only completed part of the level and only stole some of the resources.
If you earned 3 stars then it means you completed the entire village raid and stole everything from that player. Congrats, this is what you should aim for every time.
If you receive zero stars then this means you didn’t complete any part of the level and you can’t proceed to the next one. If this is the case, perhaps you need to build up your army or need to change your strategy.
