Hi all,

I've been leading my clan for about 4 months now, taking over from the original clan leader whos job went to second shift. We have a very wide mix of players from an age perspective and capability. I've felt compelled to remove about 3 players from the clan in the last couple of months because the dialog in clan chat was either pornographic, homophobic, or borderline/very toxic. Each of the three that I've removed from the clan I've given 2 warnings to before their actual removal. I think to myself that if that is what they choose to put in clan chat, imagine what they say in game. I feel like it's my responsibility to make the clan at least somewhere that all members feel comfortable coming into every day. I've explained to the rest of the clan the reasoning behind the decision.

 

I guess I'm asking for advice on how other clan leads deal with toxic chat like this and how to maintain clan moral when having to keep a standard of civility in the game.

 

Thanks for any tips

Yes, I think that is the way to build a clan. Worry about having quality human beings in your clan first, then look at the stats.

You are walking the path of a good clan lead in my opinion. We have made it clear in our clan that infighting is frowned upon, as is toxic in-game chat. We clearly point out our expectations in our clan profile for new recruits: 4 bullet points. This particular topic is bullet #4.

Yep, we’ve had to boot a few for problems with chat stuff. Usually when given just a reminder about what is acceptable in chat these types go on a rage bender and quit anyway. :P

This^^^. Best way to have a good clan is to find good people first, and then worry about stats.

You got the power! Let them know what is ok and what isn't. Choose a deputy who can help you.

First off I would have a set of rules that follow your clan's description.  In those rules i would make it clear that u expect  players to be respectful of their teammates and others at all times.  Then monitor clan chat and go to private chat to admonish a player who is using extreme profanity or doing the things u mentioned.  Then remind team in clan chat what the rules r and that u expect the team to follow them.  I do not care so much if players use some profanity although we too are a mixed age group of young and old so i remind team that we have younger players on the team.  As long as it is not every other word out of their mouth and they r not directing any hate towards a group of people,  or going on a profanity laden tirade,

  I go with the flow. It just takes common sense  monitoring.  I am not the profanity police and since i am an active lead the team knows what is expected.  This took time though. doesn't happen overnight. Hope this helped

You can always edit your clan descriptions to say something like “No Trolls, No rude behavior in clan chat, we are classy”...etc.

 

COD sets a great example of that in their clans, and on their Discord. They practice what they preach and the clan 99% of the time is self policing. 

 

Regardless, your always gonna get a new member who’s gonna test the waters, but set the example immediately and call them out, and include your warning.  

 

Good luck man, I know it’s tough to take over a clan that’s already built, but all you can do is lead by example, weed out he riff raff, and RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT!  Remember, there’s a huge difference between Recruiting and Poaching other Clans, members. That’s a no-no in my opinion.

 

good luck! 


I Love it when you call me Big Poppa, I love it when she calls me Big Daddy!

I have a different opinion of COD, and what type of example they set.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.
