I think it's great to see so many new clans forming! I think it will break up some of the monotony of the game. When there are just two or three clans it puts the game a couple peace treaties away from turning into stalemate. My hat is off to the former MacIn players for starting these new ones up!
I am also glad to see some of the newer/lower ranked players that are starting to band together unity, MNG i.e.
"May those who love us, love us. And those who hate us, may God turn their hearts. And if he doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping." -Celtic Proverbs
Grateful am I to have a sword in which to defend myself at all times, blessed am I for the days I need not use it.
