Clan Components Preview
There's a lot to consider when it comes to running, taking part in, and/or joining a Clan. From Rank to Medal Count, we're going to cover all the things that make a Clan what it is.
As you can see in the image above, there are 5 primary aspects of a clan:
In addition, a player's clan and its respective Badge will be shown on their entry in the player leaderboard.
In the future, we plan to expand what Clans can unlock, including:
One of the best parts about being in a Clan is the ability to connect and talk with your in-game pals and have an accessible information feed of all relevant, clan-related information. The Chat functionality will provide this and more:
Included in the chat will be:
While we will launch a variety of functionality, there's some that will be added at a later point after initial release. That future functionality includes:
Lastly, in the image above, those who look closely will discover a few more teasers and reveals, which will be officially announced at a later time.

CREATING CLAN PREVIEW
The time has finally come! As we recently announced, the next major feature players can expect to be added to War Alliance is Clans. While it may not have been visible to our players, we've been slowly laying the foundation of Clans for a while now, building up the architecture and related features that will all contribute to making Clans a reality.
With that said, we're going to take the next few weeks to lay out what players can expect on day one and lastly speak about what we plan for the future of Clan functionality.
In this first preview, we're going to start at the beginning and talk about what players can expect when they want to get their own Clan up and running - Clan Creation.
As you can see from the image above, players will be able to set the following aspects of their Clan:
These options will more or less contribute to Clan recruitment and identity.
At launch, the Types available will only be:
After launch, we'll plan to later add the option for Clans to be set as Private, which will provide a means for Clans to have players "apply" to their Clan.
The Badge customization options will allow players to have a Clan Badge that is truly their own, complete with various icons, colors, and other options that will make it truly unique. There are plans to continually expand these options and how players can gain more unique and exclusive customizations as well. Please look for a more detailed overview of customization options in a future blog post.
In a final spoiler, the cost for creating a Clan is tentatively set at 1,000 Gold, but there will also be a Rank restriction, which we will reveal at a later point.
Again, we're excited to finally add Clans to the game and then start building on that foundation to expand it even further in the future. As part of that, we'd love to hear your thoughts on Clans over on our Discord server. Be sure to head over there and join the conversation!
