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.

Every time one of these topics comes up, I feel like it just reinforces the idea that people shouldn't come back to the clan world

Serious question is there still a clan world? From what I have seen most people moved with their lives and don't seem to care anymore. 

 

There is, it just has transitioned into P2P, but it seems the push from P2P clans to fight more F2P will help clans like TR who are mainly F2P to prosper and find some fun in fighting new people.. that is unless they decide it's not something they want to continue overall. But the clan world does get smaller every time a clan closes (and there's been quite a few small & big ones just this past year). Most members end up quitting, with very few actually continuing to clan.


Clans are wondering why the scene is so dead, meanwhile they are kicking members for missing one event...

 

LMFAO this is golden

I guess Crest had the last laugh after all. In a fight with Dfall he said something along the lines "How long till you leave 'The' "


It's not blind trust. In order to get the moderator rank, you need to show your loyalty to RSC by working for years as a CL, and you need to prove your trustworthiness in that time. Think of CD staff as a clan in and of itself: who do you think a moderator would be more loyal to, the clan they were in for a few weeks (or literally just joined), or the clan they worked hard in for years? To assume a moderator would throw all his hard work away just to impress his new buddies is absurd.

If you still are concerned, then use a proxy just like you would do if you visited a rival clan's board, but I and the entire admin staff are 100% confident our moderators do not and will not leak IPs.

The day DK mass joined you a DK member asked VR what they would do if CT hit you guys.  Your leader Kaochinx responded "if worse comes to worse we'll just dox them".

 

Don't @ anyone about how the clan world should or shouldn't be.

This is an interesting thread. I wondered if this place still really existed, and I'm somewhat surprised to see that it does.

 

I think the big question you need to ask yourselves is what it is exactly that you want from it all? What era of clans are you looking to recapture? What type of community are you looking to create? What type of expectations do you have of one another? What is considered "important" to different clans?

 

One thing worth keeping in mind is that no one clan is/was responsible for things becoming as negative as they got. The people describing the clan-world as toxic, uninviting and unappealing for those outside the scene are absolutely correct. And it has been that way for a very, very long time. 

 

I'd be interested in a discussion on what made certain eras of the clan world enjoyable if anyone wants to have it. Maybe you guys will find something that might be of interest or value.
