Time to focus on V1?

V1 had a huge streak and is now nigh-unbeatable (though that might change with the update). V3 had ups-and-downs for slightly longer, but also seems nigh-unbeatable now. Yet both clans are struggling to fill out their rosters and mostly fight tiny 10/15 person wars, which simply aren't as fun as bigger wars and get us less experience.

At this point I think we're better off joining forces and having our TH8s/TH9s stay in V1 for 20-30 person wars. A unified V1 will have better wars, more active chat, and will be more attractive to recruits. We can still do occasional wars in V3, especially if enough war newbies and baby bases join, but I'd rather fill V3 up *because there isn't room in V1!*

I get the sense like more people are now on board with this mindset. And I want to be clear: this is possible because everybody in V1 sees V3 as being full of high-level players! V3's development has been a great accomplishment, and it's a testament to the leadership there. Now is time to reap the benefits for everyone. 

Feedback welcome!

Ok. I am up for it. The only issue to solve, imo, is how and who is going to lead v3 if this happens. I guess 90% of our TH8-9s are eager to make this true, and being a full time part of v1 is indeed an honour, but this will leave v3 with mostly unexperienced members, or more casual players.

Main solution would of course be alts, but we gotta see who has time to do it as Raj did at the dawn of v3.

This issue of course doesn't apply if there are some trusted v3'ers who don't wanna pick up the challenge of warring at a whole other level. But I don't think we will ever force someone tto stay there and take leadership.

Lastly, all of this applies assuming that Raj wants to be in v1, and that he doesn't have time to lead v3 at the same time. I'll let him express his feelings about that.

Anyway, i'm in for the challenge.

Oh let me add this: i'd like v3 to remain the "dojo", so the leadership for this to work is the key. Newbies will need to see v1 as their objective, their goal. Like it was for us.

I agree that V3 should be the place for prospects. And that means having a couple experienced players there to train newbies.

First of all, I’d like to thank ditch for complimenting v3’s progress and current status. We are very proud of our clan and it feels good to read that our achievements registered in the eyes of v1’s leaders and core members. I'd also like to acknowledge the calls of support I have received from long-standing members of v3 here and over there after this discussion started.
 
This is not the first time that the idea of merging troops from v1 and v3 is floated, but in my opinion, it has never been as timely as it is now. I do recognize the irony of the situation (i.e. two clans that are both having long-standing winning streaks struggling to put up numbers within the same family) and agree with ditch that this does not make sense.
 
In the view of the above, I would like to propose the following:
* We will encourage all war-tested >TH7 members of v3 to fight most of their wars at v1 (but nobody will be forced);
 
* We maintain v3 as a training clan (I will stay there with my two lower accounts to provide continuation, but move Raj_*1sp to v1);
 
* v1 should remain a war clan, so that people can fight as often as possible (after all, this is the essence of this game);
 
* v3, on the other hand, would have max. 1-2 wars only per week; always at the same times (e.g. search starting at Tue & Fri eve US Eastern), the emphasis would be on teaching;
 
* While upgrading heroes or spell facs, v1 members should consider dropping down to v3 for the whole period to teach and donate ;
 
* We should continue nurturing our relationship with the Angels and have cross-clan fights together with them.
 
So much for now,
Let me know  your opinion: Raj

I strongly agree with V1 upgraders spending some time in V3. This will be even more important if/when V1 gets full.

I agree with all the above. That said, we must find a way to recruit for v3, and be strict on whom to keep. If we don't constantly have 10-15 promising recruits v3 might just die
