So its come to my attention that to play hardcore clans you need to have 20 hours of casual experience, for a game mode that requires quite a large player base to be fulfilling I find it quite hard to believe why something like this would be in place. For several reasons : 1. It only decreases the chances of any new players wanting to join as all the casual server have nearly no players meaning no one wants to run around on an empty server for 20 hours, afking isn't allowed as you will get kicked so you literally have to stay active. To put this in perspective you would literally have to stay on a dead server doing nothing just to play on a server with an actual dedicated player base. 2. Following that point if there are no players that means you will not be experiencing clans either and therefore taking a large reason why this requirement was even implemented in the first place which I imagine was to teach players how to play the game, this would work well if people actually played the casual servers but they don't. 3. Lots of people have been telling me its good to get rid of hackers, which I agree is true however hackers are more likely to have access to sophisticated afk tools so that they won't be kicked allowing them to do it overnight to get alts, so this once again would only harm the genuine potentially new players from joining. 4. Finally, sorry if this is blunt but clans is dying and it needs all the new players it can get you don't want the player base to be split even more. I played clans mainly during the beta when only legends had permission to play it and I really enjoyed it I have come back to play with a friend and show him that it can be a thrilling experience but I don't expect to make him sit through 20 hours of boring gameplay doing nothing. So I have come to request he gets to bypass the timer even if this is special treatment. His player name is Dexterity_Gaming I hope you consider it as it would add two new dedicated players to clans. Thanks. Another idea: I also think it would be a good idea to take the number of servers down to 1-3 servers as I have noticed that the player base is always so split and it would be a good idea to make all these servers mix together as a low population of players with a wide range of server choices to play on will only decrease the clans experience. Thanks for listening I hope you take my opinions and my request into consideration.
