Today on Under the Microscope, brought to you by *cough*a mysterious alt*cough*, we take a look at the DARKLORDS.

Number of members: 455
Link: https://www.warlight.net/Clans/?ID=140
Tagline: MAY THE WRATH OF HELL SWALLOW YOU
Created: 9/18/2014

Currently the largest clan on WL, DARKLORDS has reached the top spot on the clan list thanks to the efforts of notorious clan owner Darklordio. While his mass recruiting efforts have been the subject of much controversy in the past, it has been vital to accomplishing his goal of making his clan the biggest on the site with over 400 members. Darklordio has been previously accused on multiple counts for hijacking other clans, accusations that were later proven false.

With the vast majority of their members inactive and last seen months ago, the DARKLORDS have earned a negative reputation around the community as a clan that only cares about the number of members and not about the quality of those members. The clan page informs all potential recruits of the perks and benefits of the clan while also putting out a ranking system based on level and what looks to be an anthem of sorts to round it off. Everyone in the clan has a "dark title", which they are welcome to request via the clan forum. The clan does not offer inclusive clan games for their members nor is there a chat game. However a few members do offer 1 on 1 tutoring for practice in coins games. Overall the atmosphere, while very quiet considering how many members they officially had, was friendly, outgoing, and eager to engage.

Nice read

Maybe an interview with the clan leader would be a good addition to these.

I would suspect that might go south if you didn't grade them well.

Where are you getting your clan score from?

You rate 2 average (C), 2 above average and 2 below average. Shouldn't that equate to like a 5?

You may interview me instead of Darklordio, since I am effectively leading the clan at the moment. He's just there for invite spamming

When you get a chance, I'd like to see what you think of TJC. (Juggernauts)

How do you gauge these? Do you interview the clan members, or spend some time in the clan yourself?
