I'd be interested to hear the details of the rule that allows them to do it before I make a full opinion; atm I'm inclined to simply state that if linked clans can just swap with each other (whether equal in skill or not), then they have an unfair advantage. Separate clans, however linked, should be considered separate clans for the purpose of CL. I know it's a bit more complicated than this, so I'd be happy to hear anyone's explanation of the relevant rules.
We are not talking about any clan, we are talking about MASTERS. It's not as if the integrity of the competition is compromised by letting some underqualified clan slide into Division A.
This seems really bad logic to me; just because a clan is good/well-known they get to jump to wherever they want? Clans should be treated equally, and a clan that's left CL should not be allowed to jump back in where they left off, in my opinion.
But we're talking majority rules here, and not gonna lie, Div A and B hold the power, and it sounds like a lot of those clans have previously benefited from this (or similar) rules. So they're not likely to vote against this rule.
For what it's worth, I think a rule that allows a clan to leave and then jump three divisions when they want to come back is not a very fair rule. Especially if they are doing it by means of a linked clan, which gives an unfair advantage to the clans that are linked, which I don't think should be allowed. In my opinion, all clans are separate and equal, and the only difference is skill level. Which they can prove by beating the clans they are better than, not by jumping over them.
(I think my opinion got stronger as I I went on. 😉)
