I started my clan The Playboys, about seven months ago. My motivation was to have a group of players who wanted to have familiar teamates and play together in divisions, co-op, clan battles etc..My wife told me "No one will want to join a clan called the Playboys". After 43 days I was beginning to believe her, then I met a player (will not name), who I liked and invited him into my clan. After he joined I decided that he should be the commander because he knew a lot more about clans than I did and i did not want to be responsible for running this clan as a inexperienced gamer. As the weeks passed we both invited more in and our clan grew to almost thirty right before Clan Battles started. I am a 63 yr old Viet Nam U.S. Navy veteran and my new commander was a 26 yr old full time gamer. I made the mistake of thinking that the gaming world was different than the bricks and mortar world and I woke up today and found that my clan of 32 had become 4. Myself and three deputy commanders were left. We have a fully set up base with all perks and a member cap of 40. I learned a lesson in playing online games. It is like the "bricks and mortar world". There are those out there who place the game above honor and friendship. I am currently inviting players to join my clan who want to play for fun and not to place this game above honor and respect for fellow layers.

Looks like a win win then, he got a bunch of friends and built you a great base, then left with his friends to do his own thing. 

MCGA wishes your clan luck!

I'd only call it a takeover if he took your base.  You can rebuild with someone who will be more upfront with you.  Enjoy your bonuses until then!

Hostile takeover would have left you out of the clan entirely. This was a mass exodus away from you.

If you are interested in a group with structure and honor you may like ATLAS and ATL2S. I have a thread here full of details if you want to read it.

I used the term "Hostile take over" because of the method that was used. One of the members who left with the previous commander I had just unwittingly appointed as a deputy commander. Before he left he used his authority to exclude all of the members except myself and three other DC's. Some have returned to find out why they were kicked and are back in. It has been a few days now and I am recovering from the event. I appreciate all of the comments and advice posted in response. Thank You!

That seems to be going on alot. Some member/ or members think it is funny to boot others from the Clan. My solution was to promote ALL members to Deputy Commander. now no one can remove another.
