No, it’s a serious question. I honestly can’t think of another purpose that Klans serve in this game that can’t be served by something else that already exists.

You are aware that you are in a clan, correct? And that clans have such useful features as private forums (Tubmail is private but limited to two people at a time.) There are klans like 70 character storytellers that… tell stories or something. I’m not sure. But I do understand that some klans are like-minded people who enjoy discussing things in their private forums.

A joke Klan consisting of only myself. And a lame joke at that. Its purpose could be served just as well by a custom title or something in my profile, if I cared enough about it to even go that far.

And that clans have such useful features as private forums

Google Groups, phpBB, email lists, IRC… there are a lot of alternatives for that. They might not be as convenient as the Super-Secret Forum, but I would consider balancing Domination to be more important.

EDIT: BTW, you could get around this problem by allowing Klan members to choose which set of brackets to be placed in. If they want to play in the individual brackets for that week, then they won’t be considered in raids.

If it was sorted by clanned and unclanned, people would just unclan, scoop for easier bracket, then reclan

Seems like a good idea. On the other hand, is it worth the effort to create two separate brackets if one is only going to be for … two, maybe three, klans? (Not to mention that the members of klans to consistently lose would likely stop participating.)

Well, that’s part of the general problem, which is much harder to solve than just separating Klanned and Unklanned, I agree.

separating Klanned and Unklanned for competition.

Great Idea! Kinda sounds like the Special Olympics.Log in to see images!

Hm, 200 vanilla scoops…

One klan raid producing more than a solo player can feasibly hope to get in a single week.

All day. You’ve been going every time I popped in to peek around. Kudos? Raiding is boring as ****, I don’t see how you’ve had the patience for it.
