“With Clan Challenges, Clans will be able issue a friendly War request to any other Clan daring to accept the challenge!” announced Supercell in their Clash of Clans forum. “Choose war participants, set the duration of preparation/battle days and send your Clan Challenge request! As soon as the opposing Clan accepts the request, preparation day will begin.”

The developer also made it clear that the feature will not be replacing Clan Wars, but is simply meant as an upgrade to offer better support for events, meet-ups and online or offline Community activities.
