    Awesome! Have been waiting for this!
    I'm currently in a clan with 10 active players. We have in all the leagues we have played in conquered and easily held all regions. Only 1 of the other clans actually tried to take a few regions(without succes of course).
    So this is really good news soon to be able to play with equals.

    Thanks Ian

    The clans with the monstrous number of members are expected to rise to the top tier and the smaller clans distributed into the lower tiers.

    Are you serious???

    The CLAN-cometition is waste of time. You can't beat Clans with many members, because of the lack of a ratio wins/members. Most Clans do not care about the competition. How can you avoid that Clans in the better time zone use their advantage by playing the last 3 hours before end of season? They can climb up to rank 1 or 2 and the former leading Clans, whose members are sleeping or working/go to school at this time, can't do anything against. The Clan-competition is nonsense now. Can't you see that?

    in all fairness, the war never sleeps. So you can either recruit members in other timezones or live with it

    Dear IanRox

    there is a very urgent need to balance the mp conquest map further. The easiest method would be to seperate clans of every tier in groups regarding to their number of members within in steps of 10 - so 0-10 Members Group 1 - 10-20 Group 2 - 20-30 Group 3 and so on.

    See my post on current stats in tier 2 group 1.
    it is ridiculous!

    there are a lot players, including me that wishes penalty for losses aswell. it is not a mind of competition to play and loose with no effect on the results.

    i think it wouldnt be hard to code that a loosing battle would cause loosing same points on the regions the players stood on.

    I kinda hope they don't make losses affect the clan standings. If you are just starting out you don't want to think that all your losses are a direct detriment to your clan. If you are getting all losses you are not contributing and that is bad enough in my view. When people play they play to win (even if they happen to lose a lot). If they are trying to get their legs they should be encouraged not discouraged by a dynamic that would start making the better players seriously resent the worse players in their clan.

    Imagine it a bit like a stagnant pond... the dross sinks to the bottom and the scum floats to the top... in between you have all the "proper" clans.
