As we reported previously, Clan Wars for Call of Duty: Ghosts will start on November 25th. Clan Wars is an evolved form of the Clan Operations features that was really popular within MW3. OneOfSwords has posted a new update regarding how Clan Wars will work in Call of Duty: Ghosts.

“The concept of having your Clan play together in some coordinated fashion,” says John Linden, studio head of Beachhead. “A lot of people did it — it was amazing watching the numbers — but it had several flaws, even though it was a cool concept. It wasn’t fully satisfying, it wasn’t fully integrated to the game. I talked to a lot of different guys,” says Linden. “We wanted to revamp Clan Operations, and they had some ideas floating around. We went through a whole range of different concepts — hex-based concepts, ladder-based concepts — all over the place. But we really wanted to have these team strategy type elements. So we took it and ran with it, and worked with IW to make sure there were some really strong integration points.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts Clan Wars will is a meta game that is separate from multiplayer in Ghosts. It isn’t something you are required to participate in or even be a part of. With or without Clan Wars, your multiplayer experience will be the same.

“It doesn’t hinder you,” confirms Linden. “Most likely, if you you’re in a Clan of at least three people but you never get the mobile app and never really pay attention to Clan Wars, you’re going to get bonuses in the game every now and then. But you’re not going to win the overall War if you’re not paying attention to it, or if you don’t have a Clan leader directing the team. If you don’t add that level of strategy, you’re not going to win.”

Clan Wars is based off of a new matchmaking system which will match your clan up with 7 other clans that have similar skill numbers and data to your clan. Making it this way, the Clan Wars can be a fair battle.

“We have a new matchmaking system, which takes into account the skill and size of your Clan at the beginning of the War. You don’t want to get one group with 100 people where they all play 15 hours a day versus a group of 100 people with four active players playing two hours a day. You’d get crushed; it wouldn’t be a good balance.”

The rewards for Clan Wars are for all clan members. The rewards for short-term are new in-game options, including Create-A-Soldier customization options and XP bonuses.

“Short-term goals are basically XP multipliers — those are tied back to the nodes, which are tied back to the game modes. So say our Clan took over a spot that was tied to Blitz, because we hit the target amount of wins as a Clan first, and we might get a 25% XP bonus — 1.25 times every XP point in multiplayer in that mode until we lose that node to another Clan. As soon as a Clan takes that away, you’ll see it in the game. You can see it in the playlist, even — you’ll suddenly see which of your modes you’re getting bonuses for in the game, and if you lose the node, you lose that bonus. If I take over a Core TDM node of the Clan Wars map, the XP bonus applies to all Core TDM matches in the whole game,” says Linden. That includes TDM matches that might show up in Moshpit playlists.

    All they had to do was bring back league play and fix ddosing and you’re good to go.

    • I7zlethal

      Can’t really fix the ddos issue.

  • CoDforever

    Its not league play, but hey might as well give it a try. I felt that league play was more accessible with the ability to play solo, and i didnt have to get all of my friends online at the same time. Fingers crossed this is good

    • Pappy1599

      You still get CP’s for the Clan even when playing solo. A win is a win and counts towards the clan.

    If it gives you more XP in a fair way and extends the lifespan of the game, then I don’t see any problems with this being there. I’ll be sure to check it out eventually.

  • Jon Cameron

    I still think it’s BS that the app is only available via phone or tablet. Some people don’t have such luxuries 🙁

    • Sloan Langedon

      100% agree that is complete B.S

    • disqus_5sEZ0i64KC

      what ? luxuries like playing a video game system such as ps3/ps4 or 360/1 in the 1st place, stop posting your 1st world problems, nobody gives a fuck

      • Jon Cameron

        And you don’t even bother to include PC in the possible systems that I play on. Wonderful.

        How is that even a first world problem? Get your shit together, dude. Just because I was able to spend a few hundred to play video games doesn’t mean I’m made of money and can afford a phone or tablet I don’t need anyway.

        It’s ridiculous that they would include the app for cell phone and tablet users, but not for the millions of people within their player base that own a computer. Please, use the logic you apparently deem infallible and tell me how I’m wrong.

        P.S. Your ignorance is showing.

        P.S.S. Yes, your stupid comment got me a little buttmangled.

  • brownsugavamp

    How do you start a clan war if our clan has signed up?

    • Pappy1599

      Your Clan Leader has to pick a
      Primary target. Then it is just a matter of playing the mode of your
      primary target. Example, your clan leader picks Hardcore Team Deathmatch
      as your primary target. Just start playing HTDM and the number of wins
      you get counts towards the target goal. Your play as a solo player also
      counts towards the goal.

    Hey anybody know how this actually works, as when I go on the app it just says you need atleast 3 clan members to proceed ( we have 11) and it says starts on the 25th Nov (it’s now 26th lol) We really wanna get into it but having no luck

  • combat knifin fool

    There’s no point in bitching about the game because its just that a game, people will find a way to cheat because they suck n have to feel good about themselves take nadesiot for instance I’ve jerked him multiple times but then his connection and scuff turned it around if they really wanna make a good game take away perks n attachments wat u do wit a gun is how good u are not using tracker sights or gay ass thermals

  • Jason Blowers

    Right so my clan are in platinum division, we own kill confirmed node. All we play really. Was wondering if we can just play this mode or do we have to break off to other game modes to be in with a chance to win? Or do we win if we own at least 1 node? Anyone explain?

    • Matty-2-guns

      Obviously, the scope of Clan Wars makes player diversity a valuable commodity. “You want to make sure you have different people in your Clan who are good at different modes,” reasons Linden. “There are some people who always want to play Domination, and that’s fine, but you’re not going to win the Clan War. But if you have a good mix of some people playing Dom and some playing Hardcore Kill Confirmed, some people playing Blitz and some Cranked, that’s when you’re going to increase the odds of actually winning a war.” – Beachhead studio head John Linden
