Now with the Black Market coming to an end, lets talk Clan Wars!
As probably very few of you may know, there soon will be another Clan Wars campaign in June/July called “Fire Trail".. Like the SoF campaign, all 6 CW tanks will be up for grabs, so I decided to give you all some information regarding the event for those who are already in a clan. In addition, I've listed some competitive CW clans, organized by ELO, WR, WN8, and other factors on the NA server, as well as some information and tips for the upcoming event.
Special "Bulat" style for the upcoming campaign (Top 10 % of players)
Details are limited about the Fire Trail event, but according to WoTExpress, the 907 and Chieftain will be included in the prize list, meaning that this will likely be a very competitive campaign considering that many people now know how OP the Chieftain is.
If you are interested in participating in the Fire Trail event, now would be the best time to join a clan since you will have plenty of time to get to know the people of the clan and show your abilities in Advances. Callers usually will pick the people they have some experience with rather than a new guy who is just in it for a tank.
Obviously if you are an experienced clan wars player, this guide may not be very useful for you, but for those who have never tried themselves in CW and are interested in acquiring tanks like the Obj. 907 and Chieftain this short guide may be useful.
For those who have never participated in a CW campaign and are looking for a clan that will likely be participating, I’ve listed some below broken down by different categories. Obviously any clan can participate, but the better the clan you are in the more likely you are to get a tank with less time and effort put in.
Right now is the best time to join, as very few people know about this event (until now), there isn't any rush to join clans since the event hasn't been officially announced yet.

I hope some of you found this information useful, I did my best to rank the clans fairly and accurately, but there may be a few mistakes here and there. Not every CW clan was listed in the ratings, my intention was just to give an idea of the types of clans that usually participate in the campaigns and what types of players they usually take. If you know of any other great clans to join to participate in the event, suggest them below! GL HF everyone on the Fire Trail campaign!
