Clan size limit? 9 replies

As I was thinking about if we wanted a clan ranking change, I think that a limit of clan size would be good. Obviously the more people you have in your clan, the easier it would be to top rank. I propose a maximum limit, and the minimum limit to display in clan rankings would be lowered (Presently 5, maybe more like 2-3 in the future).

Maybe a maximum clan size of 5 members or so? Any thoughts, pro or con?

Sounds like you're damning yourself to potentially see high traffic in the future. Don't give up hope like everybody already has!

I agree that clan size limit may need to be set due to current player base. At same time could this limit do more harm than good? I think a fair limit would be six players. There's roughly 40 somewhat active players now. A limit of six per clan would equate to seven clans if distributed evenly. I think a minimum limit to make clan ranking would be three or four members.

We could try it for a few rounds.

I'd say 7-8 members.

I don't think it's damming future players or traffic. I think that it just gives the rankings that much more competitive edge. It's not based around sheer numbers. I also don't want the whole of Nations allying up and not being able to attack each other... if that makes sense.

I think having the clan limit may hurt the new players comming in. When I first started I know I couldnt have kept up in a 6 person clan. And I know it would hurt a 5 person clan to add a noob to there clan.

I guess what im saying is it might leave the 40 of you to play on your own because it may have the new ones not learn the game or be able to take atvantage of the alliance option, and feel like they are noobs(or left out) for too long.

I'd say that would be a good thing to try out at the very least. The 5 player a clan limit that is. Seems logical.

As a side not, when I played and led my own clan, I always hated it when clans had too many alliances. Defeated the purpose of playing the game when all the clans but one or two were all allied. I also hated when people jumped clans so much. Like "Alright, round 48 I'm going to be a raider, then in round 49 I'm playing for IC"... And who hasn't been in IC?
