One of the games attributes is that you will have the options to either join a clan or create your own (you can also just play solo).
So what is a clan?
A clan is a group of gamers who play as a group or team. The clan can be official and enabled through the clan management page, or it may be an unofficial clan by mutual agreement. Clans may have entrance requirements that a player must meet, such as the completion of tasks as part of an application process.
Pros and Cons of Clan Membership
Pros- Working as a team has many benefits. Part of being in a clan gives you a sense of protection from other players “you mess with me, you’re messing with us”. Clan members also help each other out with essential supplies that you may be short of, “everybody tends to share”. All members of the same clan are able to access, repair, and build onto each others bases which can be very helpful as chopping all that wood can be tiresome. Also; if you happen to be away from the game for awhile, days or even weeks, your clan members are able to make the needed repairs to your base so that it does not deteriorate and disappear by the time you log back in.
Cons- Ok so now you have multiple clan members who have full access to you base and its contents (other than your safes). Im sure you can already see where this is going… That means a clan member can enter your base at any time and take items from you storage boxes. Lets say you’ve made someone angry with you: they can enter your base, take all of your items, and/or destroy all your storage boxes as well as your whole structure. So while working as a team has many benefits you are essentially risking everything you’ve built and worked hard for by placing your trust in other players. That is why it is vital that you get to know any and all potential clan members before joining a clan or allowing someone to join yours.
How do I join a clan?
In order to become part of another players clan they will have to provide you with the clan name and the clan password which you would like to join. Once you’ve obtained the information you will need to access the main login screen and click on “Clan Management”. It will open a web page were you will be able to enter the name and password of the clan you wish to join. Once submitted it is best to log out of the game completely and reenter to to activate the clan changes.
How do I create my own clan.
Same as joining another players clan as you will need to access the main login screen and click on “Clan Management”. It will open a web page were you will be able to create the name and password of your clan. Once you’ve allowed someone to join your clan you can kick(remove) them at any time and for any reason. Once submitted it is best to log out of the game completely and reenter to to activate the clan changes.
***You can join or leave a clan at anytime; as many times as you want, but (officially) you can only be apart of one clan at a time.***
