How to Request Troops in Clash of Clans?

On opening the Clash of Clans game, you will first need to check if you have a repaired clan castle. That’s the first step in checking whether you’re able to request troops in Clash of Clans.

Clan Castle

If not, gather the required amount of gold and repair your broken clan castle.

When repaired, it is a building that houses the troops donated to you by your clan mates. To request troops, you need to be in a clan, as you can only donate to your clan members.

If you are not in a clan, join one by tapping on the “Join Clan” button. You can request troops by tapping on your “Clan Castle” and then tapping on “Request Troops”.

Request Troops

Alternatively, open the chat by clicking on the orange button with an arrow on the left side of the screen. The “Request Troops” button is the green button on the extreme bottom left of the chat window. Tap on it, and you can create a custom message for your clan mates or use the default, which is “I need reinforcements”.

This message is useful for letting your clan mates know what troops you want. After you have requested, you will be able to see your request in the clan chat until it is filled. Note that there will be no option to fill your own request, as only your clan mates can fill your clan castle.

It Depends on Your Level

Depending on the level of your clan castle, you can ask for 10-40 troops, 0-2 spells and 0-1 siege machines.

The number of troops you receive from your clan mates is also dictated by your clan level. You will be able to receive 5 troops per player per request at Clan Level 1-3, 6 troops from 4 to 7 and 8 troops at Level 8 and above.

If only one of your clan mates is active, they can fill your request even if the capacity is not met in one request, simply by the player requesting as many times as required. There is a wait time of 20 minutes to request for troops again, with increase in clan level this can decrease to 10 minutes.

After receiving troops, you can use them in your raids or as a defense.
