It appears to me to be a major bug where if your server has lag and you attempt to create a clan and it doesn’t create so minutes later you try another name, everything seems to rubberband at once when the lag stops and this is resulting in the person creating the clan losing everything.
While this might not be a big deal for someone established in a clan, it is devastating for solo players that have spent months or years acquiring property to lose it simply because they decided to create a clan and add a couple friends.
After losing my base, ten vaults ect, I discovered that even though I am lead of the new clan, I have no authority to do anything. This means that I cannot even promote members so they can access a vault. When I attempt to leave clan, I get an error stating that I am lead and must promote someone even though I am unable to promote.
Keep in mind, I simply attempted to create a clan (I did not crash like the OP did) and add two people and neither myself or these two people had ever been in another clan (they were completely new) nor had any of us left or tried to delete a clan.
The interesting part to me is that one minute I am standing in my base and the next minute the base and everything else is under a name I have never heard before and which did not match any of the three clan names that were attempted. How is this even a possibility???
Interestingly, my thrall which was on follow turned on us the minute the clan actually created and that kill is attributed under the first clan name attempted that failed, a clan name that is currently in use and I cannot even access. It shows up in logs ONLY if I change my current clan name to another name that I tried that failed, and not even the one the kill is shown under!
I messaged Ignasis several days ago providing some details and have received no reply from anyone.
The silence on this is amazing considering we are not talking about a little bug, we are talking about the possibility of the loss of ALL work/possession in game through no fault of our own.
I guess they are too busy addressing things like how weapons look in a display rack and working on things to make their next buck than to update this issue.
