Save the dolphin! (in General)

So I was looking through the different clans, and I stumbled upon Hell Blenders. The last time I was around, they were solidly number 2 behind Battle Royale. Now, they are struggling to maintain a positive score. Looking further, I found this:

Total CPs for one month: 63,650
Net CPs for one month: -9,314

Why is this a big deal? 63k CPs for one month puts him at number 28 for most points generated in the past month. I know, there are people who are above 73,000 CPs for the month (that is the number Dolphin would need to hit in order to be positive), but it just seems a bit unfair to me. After all, Dolphin has been in a clan "Since Feb 19 2005". Thats close to 5 years of continuous clan fighting!
Looking around a little bit, its not just Dolphin that is having such problems. bartjan, edyit, Shade, etc. are all getting hit so much that they barely net any cp's each month

What can we do about this? Perhaps in addition to the no penalty for fighting down rule, the 6/20 people could also have a cap on the amount of CPs that can be drained from them? IE, dolphin's total cp's could only go down by 2k a day or something.

Mountain out of a molehill? You decide. :)

Maybe a strat revamp... that usually proves how wonderful or useless a strat is, and helps with clan cp's

I don't farm any of them so I'm not contributing to it. :)

the only thing you can do is adjust your strat or you can leave it and dont care

I'm pretty sure that was removed, but I do think we should gain defensive XP. That would also encourage farm teams once again, which in turn means we would have "active" teams in the lower ranks.

It's very easy to get some defensive wins. Thus free exp.

Clan fighting right now is way tougher than it used to be. There are a far less amount of people in clans, for whatever reason. Which means those that are in clans are geting farmed that much more. I think something needs to happen quick. I also feel the clan system is having a strong effect on the dwindling community.

I don't mean to hijack Mian's thread, but how so? I see clans as supporting the community. First, it provides an optional layer of competition to draw in players. Second, it's another positive social outlet in the game (for English speakers, at least), especially with the addition of the clan wall.

Demi -

Basically user gets fed up with not being the 'top clan' or angry with the fact his clan scores are not up where they should be cause he/she was attacked 1,000+ times in a 24 hour period.
