Even tho im one of those guys left outside my clan, i agree with this statement... Currently is not a priority, skills dont make any difference, and no clan has them so its totally pointless to point that out from the community. Eventually everyone will get in clan.
And yeah, since last time i played, things are more balanced in those terms, clans were really a pain in the ass (only 1 faction x side, avoid hitting each other, i was one of them myself).
Patient is key, and co-op with clan members by depositing 200A x day, in 5 days you will have clan lvl 5 lol (and no, you wont get behind for 200 A....)
