Hello all!

Recently, there was a small issue which popped up within our clan, which happened in a match between our clan in another clan, in an 8v8 format. I am still not sure of all of the details, but it did result in two of our better members to leave the clan, and more that are seriously considering. As a result, I am trying to find a way to counter the situation, as I do not want it to happen again. I am seriously considering rebooting the clan entirely, but I feel that would be a bit extreme. However, after the incident. I know that this is not what I want my clan to be. I feel that a few members could use a bit more maturity, for one thing, and a few others could use a little bit more patience, for another.

So I have a few options:

Do I:

-Reboot the clan entirely? And start from scratch, with a few players I know who are dedicated?
-Reprimand the players I feel that caused the situation?
-Increase the strictness of the recruiting process? I feel that this would be tough to do. Maybe change the Eldar position to 'prove why you should be in the clan' from 'prove why you should not be in the clan'?
-Get a clan mentor for the clan, that helps to improve the maturity of its members?
-Something else entirely?

I appreciate any serious input.

Thanks!
-Aura Guardian

1) 8v8? I'm guessing PoonSquad...

2) Without details, we can't really know what happened. All we see is someone asking for how to fix a problem without saying what the problem exactly is

Maybe they weren't fully satisfied with FCC and left for other clans?

@Zepyh- The 8v8 was actually vs CORP. I am not sure myself as to what exactly problem is yet. I shut down the clan chat in order to prevent the issue from snowballing further. I am in discussion with both my council and now have initiated discussion with those who have left in order to figure out exactly what happened.

Until then, the FCC is basically frozen.

@Onoma94- I doubt it.

Easy solution:

Kick the players that aren't the sharing the same ideas and philosophy as the clan.

Start on your recruiting policy and review it. Ask them that extra question..

Worked for me..

Other advice's:

Get rid of that bullshit ranking system. Ranking system only attracts squeaky kids, Stick with a VS approach where ranks don't exist and be as one.. This means more mature members. Yes maybe have a council and a leadership position you need some organisation.

This is a blind judgement and revealing 0 details is not going to get any solutions.

If you find this helpful and want to chat feel free to mail me.

Their Rank system is more or less just a less straightforward management method. It's not really a system based on ranks.

First, you have to know what exactly is happening, did you try mailing the leavers? Try to get some clarity rolling, you can't fix a problem without knowing what it is.

According to one of my other clannmates, there was an issue in the 5v5 as well:

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=10452343

Problem is, the gist is in the team chat, so you cannot see much here... I have found the source of the commotion after looking through the 8v8 team chat a little more closely. Its... nasty. If you want to know more, PM me about it. I dunno if I want to share it on public chat.

Tbh CORP has now been a trending clan, clan activity at its maximum,I think members like CORP because of its perks.
But I dont think our clan steals players,So i wish you luck in having a stronger management build on to serve the members of the clan just so you are able to keep the members from leaving and may i know the ones who left the clan kindly

It's a shame we have another clan falling apart (I didn't realise this happened so often until I joined a clan myself). It's fair to say every clan has their dark days, CORP is no exception (Loli; the hijacking e.t.c.), try and pull through though.

Steps to Prevent it happening again:

1. Cut off recruitment.
2. Kick any new players in the clan if they were aggravating the situation.
3. Improve the recruitment process.
4. Try to encourage quitters to come back.
5. Re-Open recruitment.

What does this have to do with anything in this discussion?

The original Clan leader's account name was Jack Wolfe (his pen name for a time). He was an author from Minnesota. His original intention was for the clan to basically become a "creativity center" on NationStates, then Warlight, where if its players had any good book ideas, he could help them try to solidify and develop them, and perhaps help to even publish them. Of course, this being a strategy game and all, he did not find too many people interested in the idea. So it became a small group of very strong players banded together by an author. It was a fairly well known group on warlight- before clans were official, so a long time ago. Currently, there are only three players in the clan who remain from that time- [FCC] Deniz, [FCC] Spudnik 2.0, and Sinistral Gamer- old players of the game who are not seen very often. Of those, Deniz is probably the most consistent. Spudnik is now risking removal from the clan due to inactivity. And Sinistral Gamer- Who knows?

In any case, that is a bit of insight from a historical perspective of the clan. The clan was dying when I first came to it, and when I came back in December from my hiatus, it was basically dead. So I went about the process of trying to revitalize. A lot has happened since then, this being the most recent event.

With that in mind, I am reforging the clan to being dual purpose- I have new vision of what this clan will become- a strategic and map development focused clan. Both divisions will be headed by the master of the sword and the master cartographer, respectively. The master of the quill will take input and give ideas on how to improve the clan, and the Eldar will be the recruitment head. Not sure if we need two VPs, but this is all preliminary, and subject to change... who knows? I have some people I am extremely grateful for currently helping to rebuild the clan according to this vision, and I am extremely thankful for it.

In any case, that about sums it up. This issue that popped up is beginning to prove to be the catalyst to bring change to the clan, and give it new substance and form. I am exited at what it may become!

The major structural change is completed. There is a new blurb on the clan page, as well:

https://www.warlight.net/Clans/?ID=17

Obviosuly, it will take time to fully implement this.
