Advice from a successful clan

Im sub-commander of a clan that fluctuates between 90-100 members and I wanted to share a few key things we've learned about trying to manage a clan this size. Some of out rules might seem harsh, but a clan is all about clan play. The biggest thing we did was download a second App to chat on as the ghosts app chat page is fairly limited. The app we have is called 'Line', it has a green background with a white chat bubble, it's much easier to use and you can have multiple chat pages open, so we have one for the 4 commanders, one for the Lt's, one where we post out goals, one where people can find teams to play with and so on. It's a great tool and we made it a requirement of being in our clan, either you're on the app or out of the clan. We also set a rule that anyone not playing for the target during the war will be kicked. Harsh I know, but you have plenty of time to play what you want with who you want when the war is not active, a clan is ALL about clan based played. We also set minimum play requirements during the war, so you can look at your clans weekly leader boards and see who hasn't been helping your clan out, then remove them to let in someone who will help. we also don't allow prima donnas in the clan, anyone who says 'I won't play this mode' or 'I don't play this' is kicked from the clan. Anyone who dashboards or quits a game to boost their stats is kicked from the clan. all of the clans decisions are shared amongst just 4 people in the clan with an addition 6 Lt Cmders who organize parties. With 4 of us sharing the decisions there is still some democracy, but we can still make decisions as implement them rapidly. my clan is called ART of WAR ELITE, current clan war score is 411cp with second place at 109cp in Platinum. We don't boost, hack, or cheat in any way, we're just organized. Feel free to ask any questions and I will try to answer.

Much better requirements than "must have 1.X K/D and do triple YY fakie noskope" to get in. You're about winning Clan Wars, and legit. If I wasn't in a clan with my two close friends (ripping up our Platinum Division) I'd wish to join such a clan.

Where do you go to check your weekly clan leaderboards? In black ops 2 you could see which clan members helped win a certain operation. Now it tells me I captured a node but doesn't tell me who made that possible.

Thanks,

You can go to barracks, then leaderboards, and under the score selection you can press Y or triangle on Ps I believe change the filter to clan and weekly. The score menu tells time played, but there are other menus you can use that are specific to each game type, that helps to let you know who's been playing what. You can filter by week and clan under any menu. The best way is to just keep an eye on things while you play tho. That's the only real way to know who's playing what and when they're playing it.

Pretty good info. I am the leader of Klutch Killas, I mean over 400cp is impressive. But you do have about 90 members, right now we are also in 1st in platinum. We have 330cp with 10 members.

That is great advice. We have a clan that has dominated all CW but 1. Almost all of our rules are similar to yours. Great advice on checking weekly leader-board.

IIt's easier to get wins when you're organized. As the last 2 clan wars started we had 5 full teams on, all working the same target. Even when a node is 100 points, you own it after 3 or 4 games. We capped all 10 nodes within 12 hours during both of the last wars.
