are clan bonuses lower? (in General)
Rank / Bonus: 10 / 4.6%
that number seems low for the rank, anyone else notice issues?

Total # of clans fits on 1 page; maybe that's why?
i am not entirely sure, but i think i am only getting 1/2 of what i should for clan fights.

it's fine, we're third and we only have 12.7%
dudemus they cleaned up the clans
January 26 2009 3:09 PM EST
How did they decide which ones to get rid of?
i guess it is just that most of my opponent's clans aren't earning a bonus.
who cleaned up clans?

They probably went into the negatives for too long and were auto-disbanded.
I suppose the recent clan points contest had something to do with it.
Well, I for one hope they go back to the old bonuses.
1st place is still getting a 15% bonus, but now the next best is only 13.8%...

Since the beginning of CB2, on Mondays clan bonuses are not as high for the lower clans as later in the week.
As more clans start fighting, more get a positive number and then the higher clans get a higher bonus.
It seems that a % of clans with + score get a bonus. Therefore more + clans = more with bonus and bonuses are more concentrated.
IE: Monday at 6am, only perhaps 20 clans have any positive number, so the bonuses are spread out.
by Tuesday, many more clans get a positive number and the bonuses clans get are closer together.
yeah, it is 25 percent of existing clans i believe. but since we are down to just over 50 clans that means that only around 13 to 14 clans are going to be getting a bonus until more reform.
how many clans had we been having recently?

Sweeeeeeeeet! At least I can stop being in a clan if my bonuses are zero anyway! It's a lose-win for me!

Weren't clans always cleaned up in some automatic fashion? Why the seemingly lower bonuses on this particular Monday?
January 26 2009 4:37 PM EST
Because a lot of fighting to specific targets of last week.
btw, first clan always gets 15% and the rest is just fitted below it. With 10 clans, the steps are different than with 100 clans.
If you want better clan bonuses, fight low clans and get them into the negatives ;)
my theory is that many in clans were targetting the clan supporter maker solely. these people would normally have been maximizing their clan points and thus generating more clan points through fighting clan members with a bonus.
so basically we had fewer clan points being generated which meant fewer to go around which also meant more clans were disbanded than normal. it does all hinge on the fact that we had very few clans to start the day with though, of that i am sure even if i am not certain of the reason for it.

It happens every single Monday, since no points are gained on Sunday. IIRC it's a percentage of nonzero Clans, so tapping a few clans with zero points should help.
going from over a hundred clans to less than fifty does not happen every monday. today was different for some reason, surmised above. ; )

Total number of clans has almost doubled within the last couple of hours...

I like this better - less bonus for me, but makes clan fighitng much more competitive!
" I like this better - less bonus for me, but makes clan fighitng much more competitive!"
it used to be more like this all of the time. it would actually stay more like this if people didn't spread out so much into smaller clans but rather bunched up.
i like more people getting bonuses though, it means more six point clan targets!
I'm guessing that clans that have scored no points (positive or negative) are considered 'inactive' (and useless!), and aren't counted, seeing as the 0-point clan showing has lost and gained some points.
I think it's a good change. Clans could use a bit more competitive spirit. :D
so it is looking like the percentage is based on true non-zero clans as cube said and that true non-zero clans aren't shown in the standard clans list until such time as they are no longer true non-zeroes.
one suggestion was to "tap" the non-zeroes to change their state, my question is this...how do you find them if they aren't listed?
