were some clans removed or not? (in General)

after following the poll and the thread, i am not sure. the bonuses have been the pits all day and i was wondering who we could chase with pitchforks and such!

Only 48 clans have a positive score, currently. That would mean only 12 are getting a bonus right now.

but were some removed?

i also thought it was 15 percent, not 25?

You can't see the other clans until the lose or gain points that week. Resets on Sunday.

Doesn't get completely normal till mid-week.

Cube June 15 2009 8:39 PM EDT

are clan bonuses lower?

Any memory loss? =P

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 15 2009 8:51 PM EDT

hehe, i really do not remember it taking this long on mondays to get back at least closer to normal. ; )

Flamey June 15 2009 8:52 PM EDT

that made me chuckle

You can edit the page to include all the clans that were non zero for the past week, by changing 24 to 168.

nice one cube! thanks for that tip and it would be cool to link that in the wiki somewhere?


that almost makes up for the...d'oh, i forgot where i was going!

Currently, there are 22 clans receiving a bonus, out of 57 with a score greater than 0. There is a total of 90 clans thus far who have had any change in score (negative or positive) since the reset on Sunday. The wiki states that "The top 25% of fighting clans get a bonus to rewards per fight." It seems that this means the top 25% of active fighting clans, with active meaning that at least one member of the clan has won or lost at least one battle in the last 24 hours (or during the whole week?).

So it would seem that deleting inactive clans could, in fact, have a rather large effect on clan bonus levels overall, contrary to what Shade stated in the other thread about only positive score clans counting for that.

However, I can't recall a negative score clan ever receiving a bonus, even if they were in the Top 25% of fighting clans. I didn't think it was theoretically possible, but I suppose that any negative score at all puts you below every other clan that hasn't even fought yet for the day, meaning that this scenario could only potentially arise given a particular set of circumstances that would be most likely to occur if inactive clans are removed.

So it seems we don't understand completely how clan bonuses are determined. But it could also be coded as simply as the top 25% of "active" clans with an (if not < 0) condition or something on it.

"It seems that this means the top 25% of active fighting clans, with active meaning that at least one member of the clan has won or lost at least one battle in the last 24 hours (or during the whole week?)."

i do remember from that other thread that the percentage is based on non-zero clans.

You can get the same thing I did from the User and Clan Stats page actually I think - whoops.

But you can edit the URL for almost any stats page. If you change the right numbers, you can get the stats for SG and SS also. Hopefully, that will be linked on the normal page eventually.

dudemus, in short:

No I have not removed any clan from the game.
