I keep constantly trying to create a PS3 clan but it keeps giving me errors. When I try to create one on the elite website, it says "This clan name is already taken" but when I search it, there are no results. I even typed a clan name I know no one has and it gave me the same thing! I have my elite account linked with both my PSN and my Xbox and my FB and twitch and twitter accounts. It's linked to everything. If the problem consisting is because I have it linked to my Xbox and PSN account on the same accounts, then tell me why. Because why would they have that option if it's going to give me errors.
Thanks for posting. Sorry to hear you are having an issue with creating a clan. When creating clan and choosing a name results in it's already in use, you may have to try a more unique clan name. We'll look into the issue as to why the name does not appear in your search results. If you like, you can shoot me a DM of the clan name and we'll check.
Also, what is the specific error message you are receiving when creating a clan. Are you using the console app when you receive the error message?
The clan name I'm trying to create is "ZombieZAlliance"
I'm using my computer to try to create the clan and I've also tried using the console. Both have resulted in failure.
If I was a betting man I'd bet that having your account linked to both XBOX and PS3 at the same time is the source of your problem. It probably doesn't know if you are trying to create a PS3 clan or an XBOX clan. I'd try unlinking one of them and see if it solves the problem.
I will try but the thing I use, I use my xbox FAR more than my PS3. Like, I'm only using my PSN for the clan, not for forums or anything else so it'll be a real hassle.
We checked the clan name and it doesn't appear to be in use. It may sound basic, but please try clearing the cache/cookies on your web browser or try another browser to see if the same issue occurs. We recommend using Firefox or Chrome.
Let us know the results.
Lets see, can you this time around, only link your ps3 account, and then try to create the clan.
One alternative thing you can try, is to create a brand new ELITE account using a new email, then only link your PS3 tag and once again, try to create the clan once again.
It did not work. I created a new account and it re-linked my xbox and stuff accounts so I signed into this one and neither of them were linked so I linked my PSN account and it still didn't work. I disconnected my xbox account and it didn't work.
