From my perspective it seems that maybe in the future we will have mass clan wars , the reason I say this is that clans found being a lone single clan no matter how powerful had its disadvantages so the natural order was to form alliances . These became unreliable and a bit too mutable so this may evolve into the family clan structure of today. Already there are a number of powerful grouping family clans with effectively thousands of members and these have been formed to allow those clans to choose their direction and game play with a lesser chance of being bullied and a greater way to project force. I guess it will come to pass in the future that we may have THE GREAT WARS where maybe hundreds of clans are fighting each other at the same time. We might even get an extreme position far in the future of polarity where you are one side or the other Or we may find that these family's dissolve away and we have single clans again , still it will be interesting to see how it all develops.
