Ok, I'm new here, I see a clan called Illuminati at the top, does that mean they are the best clan?

Is there any benefit to joining a clan?

And special in-game powers or help/boosts you get?

or is it basically a square next to your name?

And how does one determine the best clan?

Sorry, noob questions I'm sure, if this has been answered elsewhere please simply give me the link.

Thanks,

There is ultimately no point in ever joining a clan, they're not really needed and you don't need to waste your time over them.

The clans are ranked by total accumulated points. Illuminati has many many members which means they rank highly. I cannot talk for their internal structure or if they really are a good clan, but most people seem to dislike them for their trolling.

Technically clans offer nothing but an icon and a private forum, however certain clans offer special internal benefits made by the managers within it - For example some are focussed on strategic gameplay and only allow in those who have a certain minimum skill. These clans are good if you want to take pride in battles and hope to win some tournaments with good teammates.

Many clans also engage each other in clan wars and battles, where we manually setup games and tournaments and special little leagues and fight each other. It's alot of fun, although technically nothing changes.

In my opinion, the best clans are those that encourage unity and have lots of internal clan activities, from the top of my head i'd recommend Warlighters, 101st and of course {rp} ;) .

If you feel you are super skilled you might want to try out for WG, WM, apex, [20] or gg(?)

I'm sure there's plenty i'm missing because I don't particularly engage with them so much anymore.

If you prefer roleplaying, there's LN (league of nations) and rr(? Roleplayers Realm) Which look good. Also my own clan. Apparently roleplaying clans generally have a bad reputation so you need to be very careful about those.


Sorry for the long ramble, in short: There's no best clan - No clan is more highly skilled than all of the others as the leagues tend to flip flop with who wins and loses, and lots of clans have fun internal and external games which make Warlight alot more fun.

If you'd like to put more meaning into Warlight, involve yourself in a community and fight for an arbitrary idea, join a clan! :D

Ok but then why is there stigma against clans such as rr, illumi, etc?

Does not having a clan make it a 'real clan' what is the difference between say rr and gg?

And for example even if you are say, roleplaying, you are taking it seriously, if you are doing it, then how does gg take itself seriously compared to a roleplay clan or the illuminati if they are all taking themselves seriously?

I don't really see a difference except childish; 'your not in my clan, so your clan isn't real'.

It's actually quite sad, and if they provide nothing but drama and a square next to your name, they seem pointless rather, and a waste of monetary funds.

What is the difference, I am clearly missing it.

Thanks Again,

no.


Is there any benefit to joining a clan?


not particularly. it's more of an inner community thing. there are talks of some clan wars features that might be implemented in the future in the game, but nothing as of yet.


And special in-game powers or help/boosts you get?


none. expect maybe people ganging up on you if they don't like your clan.


or is it basically a square next to your name?


pretty much, except someone paid 15 dollars for it to exist. and drama is likely to ensue at some point.


And how does one determine the best clan?


battle to the death!


Ok but then why is there stigma against clans such as rr, illumi, etc?


what stigma would that be?


Does not having a clan make it a 'real clan'


what?


what is the difference between say rr and gg?


different letters, different players.


And for example even if you are say, roleplaying, you are taking it seriously, if you are doing it, then how does gg take itself seriously compared to a roleplay clan or the illuminati if they are all taking themselves seriously?


why do you care? just have fun.


I don't really see a difference except childish; 'your not in my clan, so your clan isn't real'.


generates way more useless forum threads atleast!

sad clan drama indeed.

The benefit is you get teammates you can count on. You also get to play in clan only events, you learn from each other, and we have a good bit of fun chatting. We also do some training sessions evaluating other games.

I don't know what rr is, but the stigma against illuminati is because alot of their members are childish and troll. Atleast that's the impression I have received from the forums.

Every clan is real, it's just a group of players. Clans are very different, but they're all equally significant in my eyes. My own clan doesn't really take anything seriously, we just like playing together and having fun - It's nice to have a core group of people you can trust not to break rules in our "custom rules" games which require following an honour code. Also they're really great people.

Arbitrary fighting with other clans is also fun - In games and friendly of course. The drama is easily sidestepped.

You were the first to buy a clan, so you are the best?

Interesting theory.

Was that an invitation to join?

What are the benefits of joining a clan?

You'll never get in-game boosts for being part of a clan, except maybe clanmates allying you or people who hate your clan atacking you.


There are (according to me) 2 characteristics of clans:

The people inside:

-Elite clans: {rp} and WG... this clans have few members and are hard to enter.
-Noobs clans: some of the top clans... accept everybody, no matter if they have just entered
-Regular People clans: this ones have players that play for fun and are active but not very involved, although there isn't am exact line between all of these.
-Same country players: NL; BR and ESP are some examples, the plers share country, language or region.


The objective of itself:

-Roleplaying clans: very few clans of this kind, since they aren't so respected by the strategic players. {rp}; League of Nations (my clan) and some others are good examples. To enter one of these you must like roleplaying. This kind of clans usually make clan games that are full of roleplay, only good stuff there.
-Strategy clans: hardest clans to enter, although some are mid way to the top, depending on the percentage of victories, most of them use the 1 vs 1; 2 vs 2 and 3 vs 3 to allow or not their players, as well as the boot rate. Here you improve your strategy, playing for winning, basically.
-Common clans: just clans that gather a group of people that have played together or are real-life friends.

Everybody will be biased to an extent *coughFrancocough*

Some people *coughFrancocough* still think about clans in the old way. There are no noob clans, and he omitted troll clans. Not to mention there is now a permanent league using the clan system that is AT THE LEAST worth mentioning.

The only noob clan to ever exist was illuminati, and illuminati is done. Members fade every day, or become inactive with the game itself. I personally (amidst others) have never considered illuminati a clan at all. While always considered "a troll clan" that was never the intention. They were a self admitted attention clan.

True troll clans exist now. Trollitus Maximus has cleared the path for that.

Having no prerequisites for joining does not make you a noob clan. It makes you a clan that doesn't care how good you are or who you are. They're just looking for a place to have fun and play games with. Most of these "noob clans" are also part of another genre of clans. Whether it be Roleplay, diplo, or team based clans, having no prereqs does not make you a noob clan, and I'm sure I'm not the only person insulted by this statement.

When you play against players from a (other) clan. you'll see how good they are. (levels are not always represent the skill of a player due lottery games [other topic])
Some good clans I know by playing against different members of that clan are REGL, GG (Illuminati, used to be but I'm not seeing them anymore). And some other players from clans like 5v5 have a difference in skills.
Just play against clanmembers and you'll see how good they are.

My own clan is a mix of skilled players and players who can improve theirselfs.

Levels in some respect show how active players are, not their skill at all. It doesn't really show anything, it's just an additional extra feature to the game.

What skill do you mean? The only skilled players on warlight are the best of the best [20], Apex etc. Top map makers also but nothing else. On the other hand skill level can be a more suitable word. My god that ranges.
