I hear this strange rumor on occasion, but don't believe it
Anyways, I think the hoards of 2-man clans that disappear after 1 day must be prevented. An official clan support mechanism would be nice, in terms of sharing stats and tracking overall clan stats. Also, clanners could share team logos or ship badges via their clan console, IF these are even in the game. Ranks could be designated. If a clan leader was defeated it might hurt the clan stats more than if a normal clan member were defeated... or a special icon/tag is granted the other clan/person.
Require players to have several games on their stats before being able to join a clan. Require a checkbox in the player profile to be ticked "yes" to allow clan invites. Require clan invites to a player, then the player accepts that invite to join up... this prevents players spamming a clan, and clans spamming players with invites both.
Allow leadership transferral, and clan name changes without making a whole new clan
Differentiate "Clan Battle Stats" from "Clan Total Stats" from "Clan Internal Stats" in that one is for tracking games where only clan members ally on one side. One is for a summation of all clan members' individual stats. One is for internal member vs. member games and is NOT counted in a players' total win/loss stats nor the clans total stats.
