Essentially what's happened is for a lot of people the actual fight, wherever it may be, holds very little value in comparison to the **** talking afterwards. People want to win just to be able to make their opponents look silly on forums/discord/twitter or wherever rather than to actually compete and be #1. A large number of clans seem to prefer to sit and wait for easy chances for some positive publicity, for want of a better word, rather than go out and scrap with someone who's a genuine rival.
Obviously not all clans are like that but the ones that are just contribute to the stagnation that people have talked about for years. I won't name names or point fingers but everyone knows of a few examples of clans like that. For the clans that do want to go out, be active and scrap just for the fun of the fight they'll just end up fighting the same opponents week in week out which just gets stale. This all leads to an inactive, stagnant clan scene which leads to fights getting crashed just because that might be the only decent action available.
tl;dr There's too much salt associated with losing and not enough clans willing to fight for the sheer fun of it anymore.
