Not just the forum, Rusty, the Clan system itself is dying ....
Down from its peak of 30 pages of clans now down to 5, with a page of 1/2 player clans or no longer accepting challenges
The systemic use of sandbagging by the top clans over previous years to maintain their stranglehold is finally (and sadly) bringing the system down
The fact that r ...[text shortened]... ed to resort to sandbagging
Saying the forum is dying is like Nero fiddling while Rome burns ....
The only thing I haven't liked so far is lemon giving you points on a silver platter.
Although they haven't been enough to make much difference.
Clans seem to be moving faster in Challenges against your group than in others in lets say the top 10, I've been following and that is a FACT. I can appreciate that happening though as no one wants the same Clan winning in what I think would 8 years straight? One could see there was going to be a point this would happen.
Other than that your clan has done a very good job having those points to take into this year was a move right out of Metallica's play book, well done!
I believe my new clan is playing it straight as I checked it over pretty good, before deciding to join. Been watching them the past 3 years and they are improving it seems each year. I believe good enough to play anyone.
I don't know how the sandbagging will stop unless the Clan Challenges have their own rating separate from the other ratings. Your Predictions could very well end up proving to be true unless something radical is done as you've pointed out.
We both know you had it won by March for sure, no one had a chance of catching you! Good Job!!!! You must admit you've had a little help by Clans not moving as fast against other Clans as your Clan. As I said to be expected with one Clan winning it all each year.
EDIT: Please note I speak for myself and not my Clan.
