A while ago I started a thread to see if we could improve the Clan system and experience within Tanks.  Here is part of my initial post:

 

1.  Tank clan logo - If you join a clan you gain access to the clan emblem for ALL your tanks.

2.  Display Clan Banner in garage, on one of the vacant walls.

3.  Regular 'Clan Chained Ops' which require clan members to platoon up and work together to achieve the set goal.  Make it a difficult target which would require a combined effort from majority of clan.  Also, possibly bonus ops linked to normal ops (i.e. destroy 100 vehicles get 150,000 silver - clan bonus if 5 or more clan members achieve it then clan participants get bonus 3x xp boosts or similar)

4.  Ability for Commander's to leave messages on clan page for all members.

5.  Info on Clan page as to where clan is based, i.e. US, Europe, Asia, etc.

6.  An actual list of clans on website by region, i.e. for clans of 10 or more.

7.  A clan ladder, especially now that WG are listing the top xp earner's each month in Battle Heroes.

8.  CLAN WARS!!!  (Coming soon me thinks  :izmena:)  Remember the E3 preso announcing Arena!!

 

Some other idea's which I think need investigation are:

 

9.  Ranks within Clans, i.e.

 

Commander - Col - 1

XO - Lt Col - 1

Major - 2

Lt - 4

Sgt - 4

Private - Rest.

 

I'm sure the community can come up with some brilliant ideas and it would be nice to get some feedback from WG on whether any of this can be implemented.

And here is a post I submitted for the recent Developer Livestream, which wasn't answered.

 

1. Can we get some improvements in clan structure, i.e. Ranks within clan.

2. Can we have a Clan Ladder, and monthly comp?

3. What's happenning with in game tournament's?

4. Clan chained Op's, when can we expect these?

5.  Clan contribution Op, have an Op with high requirements for a clan reward and enable clan members to contribute towards overall prize.

They've pretty much said that clans will be as they are. No further development planned.

Great post sir!:great: Very good ideas many are things WG has said in the Twitch streams that we might see down the road and many are new. The one thing WG said that we would not see though is clan wars "as they are on the PC". I love the Clan Operations and clan structure ideas.

Some great ideas, especially like the Clan Chained Ops for a special Clan only premium tank!

Are there any plans for Clan-created emblems?

Not currently. Integrating user-created content on console is very difficult.

 

Any hints on upcoming features in the works?

Just to name some: Customizable Crews, Ranked Battle changes, tournaments, new tank customization options, new achievements, female crews, national crew voices, audio upgrade, improved AI, Co-Op, and more! 

Any thoughts on Clan members sending Silver/Gold to each other?

We're hoping to add gifting to the Store soon. Fund transfers are tricky because laws vary by state and country, so direct currency transfer isn't likely.

One idea would be to add a clan logo and motto to the web portal clan page for a fee of 300 gold.

An idea I've been considering for some time now is a Clan Ladder Competition.

 

If you've ever read the News section of the WoT Console webpage you've probably seen the weekly 'Battle Heroes' update and you'd know that WG often lists that week's top 5 XP earning, or damage earning clans for Xbox & PS4.  Therefore WG is actively compiling data on the performance of ALL clans in the game.  Why don't we take this a step further and utilise this as a way to drive clan involvement and reward players for there dedication to their clan and the game?

 

PROPOSAL:

 

Establish a monthly Clan Ladder Competition which is divided into sizing groups as follows.

 

1-20 Members

21-50 Members

51-80 Members

81-100 Members

 

If a clan has 100 members, but only 79 members play Tanks in that month then the clan will contest the 51-80 division for that month.  If in the following month they have 85 members who are active they will contest the 81-100 division.

 

Likewise if a clan participates in the 51-80 division in one month, then in the following month only has 11 active players then they would contest the 1-20 division.

 

Each month there is a reward for the clan which came 1st in each division of say 7 Days Premium for all participating members of that clan.

 

There could be a 6 monthly reward for the clan that wins the most months in that period of say 30 Days Premium and 250,000 silver for all participating members of the clan in that period.

 

You could limit it to individual performance, but to encourage teamwork you could require clans to have platoon's of say at least 2 people and no more than 4, or set it for different sized platoon's each month, or specify particular tier's for that month.

 

In a way this could be a way of having RANKED battles for Clans.

 

There would also need to be a Ladder tab in the garage where you can go and check how your clan is performing and rated against other clans.  The tab would need to show the different divisions and would need to accommodate a clan moving between divisions as active member numbers fluctuate each month.

 

This is an idea I've been mulling over for awhile, and my thanks go out to Steampunk Pagan for his idea of focusing on Active members of the clan for each month.  I think this proposal has merit and can be implemented relatively easily given the progress with Ranked Battles to date.

I'd be glad to see most of these ideas implemented. WG has a vested interest in improving the clan experience. Clan members likely are more active than solo players which in turn makes WG more revenue. Do it for the money WG!

I think WG may be listening, this April Clan Event is an awesome start.

I think the effort the guys involved in the WCL have put in in arranging those events has been awesome, but it still creates a problem in that it is limited to a set number of people in the clan.

 

We need an event, or large Op within the game, whereby a Clan reward is available and all members of the Clan can contribute to the overall target.  If the target is attained then all members of the Clan that contributed become eligible for the reward.

 

There could be small rewards that a clan member can achieve whilst assisting the Clan to reach the overall target.

 

Has anyone else got any idea's?

I really appreciate what you do RaiBOT01, but lack of clan features is a big reason I'm seeing veteran players lose interest in this game.  

 

I certainly hope there is time.

Perhaps you should wrap your head around the concept that forums are for complaining.  Not many customers go out of their way to express their satisfaction with a product.  You go to bitch and moan when you think something is wrong.  Not when it works like you think it should.  That is why forum posts are always going to be skewed toward the negative.

Why is it that players can put together terrific proposals for clan functions, but three years later the actual developers have implemented nothing? Are they spending literally all of their money on new paint jobs for existing tanks?

I know this is reaching and more than likely not doable at all. But just trying to think outside the box a bit with this. How about a clan throwback weekend event where clans only would play Ranked Battles in Tier VII tanks on old throwback maps with the original spawn points. Platoons no larger than three would be allowed with battles being 7 v 7 tiered rewards and the rankings would not be individual as ranked battles are now but clan based. Only clans of five or more with min. battles played for clan to be ranked set at 50.


 

Again just thinking outside the box and looking for something different from the regular stuff you see and read posted in the forums.


 

Thanks,

SteampunkPagan.

Awesome idea, this is the sort of thing we need to see in this thread.  The more idea's the better chance we have of seeing things improve for Clans.

 

The idea of Rankd battles for Clans would be great.  I agree limit size of platoon's but not sure if feasible, we'd need clarification from WG.  We need Chuji's input.

 

We want CHUJI, we want CHUJI, we want CHUJI!!!
