Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 5 2011 5:49 AM EST

this also mean that im recruiting new ppl and old clannies if they wish to keep playing in HB

AdminShade January 5 2011 7:06 AM EST

You're welcome but you have let it disband yourself together with your fellow clanmates...

Welcome back btw!

AdminNightStrike January 5 2011 7:46 AM EST

That's kind of sad. That clan was around a long time.

AdminNightStrike January 5 2011 7:46 AM EST

Thanks for not losing heart, though... or.... I guess... soul :)

Zenai January 5 2011 7:51 AM EST

NS: This is exactly the reson I gave a certain suggestion a while back when TK II got disbanded. Can we please have some kind of buffer for this. It is a true shame to see so much CB History go into the trash in the blink of an eye.

AdminNightStrike January 5 2011 9:35 AM EST

Propose your suggestion again. Maybe it'll work this time :)

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] January 5 2011 9:44 AM EST

Vacation modes for clans? Clan collects no bonus, maybe lasts for a week or two, with a week or two cool off. Can be turned on by leader. Clan affects cps in no way, so members don't gain or takeaway points.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 5 2011 10:56 AM EST

i propose a rollback so hb didnt disbanded, its way to short a time to get a clan disbanded

i lol'd

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 5 2011 6:12 PM EST

well lol all you want but 1 of the oldest guilds is still gone

AdminTal Destra [Forge Of Norn] January 5 2011 6:16 PM EST

shoulda like made your strategy better dude...


keep whining yes i know that the clan is gone, there's nothing you can do to bring it back with that date as the opener...

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:23 PM EST

It had nothing to do with strategy. Everyone in Hell Blenders was a top of the line strategist. It more had to do with afk players, I remember a couple days ago I predicted this was going to happen.

Can we get a vacation mode yet? Pretty please!!!!!!

ScrObot January 5 2011 6:27 PM EST

What I'm confused about is why do clans with active users get disbanded, but there are still over 600 inactive clans just sitting there?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 6:29 PM EST

from the wiki:

Clans with a net weekly negative score of -1000 are disbanded.

if all of the inactive clans are ever disbanded, our clan bonuses will suffer as well.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:31 PM EST

Because most all the inactive clans have tiny characters. No one wants to spend the ba to get them to -1000 for a week. If enough people from a clan where people are actively farmed go away and leave their char in it is easy enough to send them to negative -1000 for the week.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:32 PM EST

Unless of course your clan is numero uno

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 6:34 PM EST

number one wouldn't really change, but everyone else would...dramatically.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:35 PM EST

Kind of like early in the day on Monday.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:36 PM EST

I figure if you disband enough of the inactive clans there will reach a point where it will have a domino effect. Most of the active clans will leave because they can never get a bonus until. you are left with just a few clans who are vying for that 15% bonus and #2 gets 0. It might not ever get that bad but that is a potential situation of disbanding all the inactives.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 6:40 PM EST

i don't really see it getting that bad either, but if we only had 20 active that would mean five getting a bonus which might make it 15%, 12%, 9%, 6% & 3%. i am unsure of how it scales though so that is really just an example of how it could affect bonuses.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 6:47 PM EST

You are forgetting that those 5 clans getting the bonus would be pretty set. There might be 10 clans getting the bonus over the course of a week, the other 10 clans never see a bonus at all. How long would it be before the people in those 10 clans just get fed up with never seeing a bonus?

ScrObot January 5 2011 6:50 PM EST

Thanks for the clarifications. I'm just sick of seeing **Hornie_freakS** on the top clan list every Sunday night. (=

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 6:54 PM EST

true nat!

i never tire of seeing hornie freaks on saturday nights. ; )

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] January 5 2011 7:42 PM EST

the way the auto disband works is plain dumb.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 5 2011 7:49 PM EST

Do you have a suggestion to make it less dumb?

{cb1}dyno January 5 2011 7:49 PM EST

I am not a fan of the system but I will say this: Unfortunately AoD is one of the few targets I get a bonus on, and constantly their squad was in the negatives in the last few weeks... Not sure why they weren't attempting to recruit as they appeared to have space, could have prevent the problem. Again, dislike the system, but it's not like we didn't see this happen with Shade's squad last year.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] January 5 2011 7:54 PM EST

"Do you have a suggestion to make it less dumb?"

yea, don't disband clans with active players

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 5 2011 8:14 PM EST

I believe that the increase in cost to create clans should have included a change that eliminated clan disbanding. No reason to limit the number of clan targets.

QBOddBird January 5 2011 9:46 PM EST

"Do you have a suggestion to make it less dumb?"

best post in the whole thread

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 9:49 PM EST

i do agree that if members are actively fighting then the clan shouldn't be disbanded. unfortunately though a change like that would likely disband all of the dead clans.

i guess it could be a dual qualifier for disbanding. first see if the net score falls below as now and then see if any members fought that week?

AdminNightStrike January 5 2011 10:13 PM EST

Well, I think it's viable to at the very least make the threshold be -2000. It never changed when clan point values doubled from 1,2,3 to 2,4,6. So I'll do that now.

Done.

It'll be effective at cache flush. Feel free to post a CL.

AdminNightStrike January 5 2011 10:14 PM EST

We'll see how this plays out. Other options include a threshold of X required challenged fights.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2011 10:16 PM EST

woot, changelog worthy for sure! ; ()

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 6 2011 4:47 AM EST
