Let's say we are all trading clan tags. There are 0 tags being traded for the Paper Tigers. Thus, supply is 0. But everyone would want to be that one person in control of a clan -- therefore, demand is high.

We're not currently trading clan tags. But it would be interesting if we did! I'm not mathematically inclined enough to start this idea, but maybe someone else could take the reins, and create a 'stock market' for trading clan tags? The clans with more players would be valued less per tag due to high supply, but tags from clans with fewer members (and perhaps high competitive skill) would be worth more due to rarity.

Aren't tags automatic? Or am I just stupid?

no they aren't. I don't have a tag. But the little picture is.

The trading of clan tags would be like fantasy football. No trading in 'real' items.

So what's defined as a "tag" then?

The tags next to players' names. So, one player = one tag. The LEA, for example, would own 129 tags in the market as of 1/6/2015, whereas the Wolves have saturated the market with 210, and clans like Hail Hydra are very rare at one tag.

To make this work, some kind of trading system would have to be put in place and tags would have to be assigned a value based on a combination of arbitrary judgement and math. Since math isn't my forte, I'm not going to take a project like this into my own hands; I'm just speculating how it could happen.

Perhaps it would make sense if only clan leaders were able to initiate trades, or perhaps non-leading clan members would only be able to trade their own tag.

But that means we would all have to put a tag next to our name... I don't really want a tag.

What about new members joining clans? The last thing this weak system needs is market inflation.

After_Dark tags would be very rare as only two of our clan members have them :D

Alias brings up a salient point. The number or WL memberships in a clan ought to increase that tags value some. For instance, of the 9 current members of [20], 7 of them have memberships, whereas, of the 9 current members of Inget stoppar oss, 0 of them have memberships. Aside from the obvious skill difference between those two clans, the membership tags alone should increase the value of [20].
