One of the biggest issue with clans that I have observed is that they seem to be generally useless. Unless you are part of the top 3 (or top 6) competitive clans, the chances for rewards are low.
Sure, having a nice clan name and a cool emblem is nice. Having clan members to talk to and test mech builds with are both nice. Yet these can also be done outside of the clan...
So how about a clan feature that would help lower ranking players?
How about "Donating" items (non mythical - hell even regular items only if that is the best) for fusion use.
I believe that this would promote growth within clans, and would be an incentive to pull new players under a veteran's wing.
What would be the benefit of the one giving items, though? I really don't know. A nifty achievement after a lot of donations? This can be up for discussion.
This may not be "trading" by definition, but it can be used as trading. A sort of "send me fusion, I will give you on in exchange". But what would be the point of sending a 150 power item in exchange for another 150 power item? Unless... you are hoping to get one of those ultra rare Normal Items that rarely drops now... say a Bully so you can complete that push mech you were building but have not gotten any drops lately. (this would be obsolete if the Shop would be returned)
So how does this work?
- A member must Request for Help. ("Need Help for an Upgrade")
- there is a limit to how much total power of items he can receive (say only 500 ? )
- there is a daily limit to how many times a member can request for Upgrade Help (daily/hourly/ i don't know)
- anyone in the clan can pitch in.
Anyway, any thoughts or comments on this (whether it is even possible) would be helpful.
Have a nice day.
- Yes. Donation is good.
- No. Useless and not a good idea.
- No. Still Trading. Trading is bad.
