Once you reach 5000 trophies in Clash of Clans, you can sign-up for Legend League. Each day you are given the villages of 8 other players to attack. You will also show up as a target for 8 other players. You have to get more trophies from attacking than what you lose in defenses to stay in Legend League. Once the month is over, everybody is reset back to 5000 trophies. The trophies over 5000 are shown in your player profile. Once you’ve signed up, you automatically sign-up for Legend League for as long as you keep your trophies at 4,901 or more.

Once you reach 5000 trophies, you can sign-up for Legend League. You are automatically signed up for consecutive Legend League seasons, but only if your trophies stay at 4,901 or more.
If your trophies drop under 4,901, you have until the end of the current League Day to get back to 4,901 Trophies or higher. At the start of each League Day, anyone who has signed up and is below 4,901 Trophies is demoted to Titan league. In this case, you will have to get back to 5,000 trophies and sign-up for Legend League again.
Should you not sign-up for the Legend League game mode, you can not attack anymore. Players in Titan League can still attack you.
You have to get more trophies from attacking than what you lose in defenses to stay in Legend League.
The amount of trophies you gain from an attack is determined by how many Stars you get and how much damage you manage to inflict. You have to inflict at least 10% damage to start gaining trophies from an attack. Scoring less than 1-Star in battle does not deduct trophies from you.
The trophies of your target do not affect how many trophies you stand to win.
An attacker has to inflict at least 10% damage on your village to start gaining trophies from you. The amount of trophies you lose is determined by how many Stars the attacker got and how much damage they were able to inflict.
Your attacker’s trophies, or your trophies at the time of the attack do not affect how many trophies you lose.
- For 0 stars you’ll get 0 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 10% DP above 0%
- For 1 stars you’ll get 5 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 9% DP above 1%
- For 2 stars you’ll get 16 trophies + 1 trophy for each full 3% DP above 50%
- For 3 stars you’ll get 40 trophies
If you sign-up for Legend League towards the end of a League Day, you might not get the full eight targets to attack. If this is the case, you won’t show up as a target for eight other players either.
This is to make sure that you can’t be attacked 8 times in a time period where you have no chance of attacking eight times.
When you attack in Legend League, you do not raid resources from your target. Similarly, you don’t lose resources in attacks against your village.
The amount of loot on offer is determined by your target’s Town Hall level, as well as the strength of the village’s defenses. The stronger the village, the more loot is on offer as a reward. Your own Town Hall level does not affect the amount of loot on offer.
Raided resources are added to your storages immediately after battle. They do not overflow your storages.
Raided resources are also added to your Season Bank.
Attacks in Legend League also reward the Loot Bonus and collect stars towards the Star Bonus.
When you sign-up for Legend League, you are instantly matched with 8 other players. After this, you will be matched with another 8 targets each day.
You only face opponents who have enrolled in the Legend League game mode, and who are of a similar trophy level. The offensive or defensive strengths of players are not considered.
Can I be matched with someone with a lot more trophies than me?
It is possible to be matched with players with significantly more trophies than you. However, this does not impact the amount of trophies you stand to win or lose in any way.
The more trophies you gain, the bigger the differences between your trophy count and those you are matched with start to be. This is because there are fewer players in matchmaking with such high trophies.
To change your Legend League layout for the next League Day, go to the Legend League menu behind the “Attack!” button. Then tap to the “Defence” tab.
Here you choose your Legend League layout from your existing layouts. Any changes you make to your choice of layouts for Legend League don’t take effect until the next League Day.
Please note that if you edit a layout in the layout editor, a 24hr cooldown begins for using it in Legend League. Also, after making changes, you have to remember to select the modified layout again in the Legend League menus for the changes to become active.
If you do not change your layout between seasons, you will continue to use the layout you used in the previous season.
Once you fill the Clan Castle in your Legend League layout, you don’t have to add troops back after each defense. The troops added into the Clan Castle will defend your village in all Legend League defenses until you decide to change them.
To change the Clan Castle troops, open the “Defence” tab, and tap on the Clan Castle button. Here you can choose to mirror the Legend League Clan Castle troops with troops from the Clan Castle in your active layout.
Any changes to your Legend League Clan Castle troops will only take effect on the next League Day.
You need to request Clan Castle troops for your own attacks and replenish them after each attack as usual.
If you are in Legend League but have not signed up, destruction to your village rewards shield accordingly:
At 30% destruction, an 8-hour shield is awarded.
At 60% destruction, a 10-hour shield is awarded.
At 90% destruction, a 12-hour shield is awarded.
For players who have signed up
You don’t get Shield or Guard when attacked. However, it’s still possible to take a break by purchasing Shields. If your Shield is active when the league day changes you get to skip both attacking and defending for the next league day.
If you have been matched with other players, it is no longer possible to purchase or remove Shield for the current League Day, but only for the next day.
If you buy a Shield while opponents are being found for you, the opponent search is canceled and the Shield takes effect immediately. In this case, you can not participate in the ongoing League Day, even if you remove the Shield.
If you have purchased a Shield for the following day, but drop out of Legend League, the Shield will remain effective in the regular multiplayer system.
When you sign-up for Legend League, your current Shield or Village Guard will be scrapped, allowing you to play immediately.
Signing up in Legend League means that you can’t attack or be attacked in Multiplayer ladder.
