Average Clan Size?

Recommended Posts

I did some number-crunching using a very scientific process which I shall term "winging it" and discovered that the top 50,000 clans, sorted by number of clanmates, vary from 9-500 people and have an average of 31 clanmates.  Total, they have a combined 1.56M members, approximately.

 

Of course, this is mostly just an intellectual curiosity.  It doesn't account for inactive accounts, multiple accounts owned by the same person in a clan or different clans, or inactive clanmates, but I suppose it is a start.

 

What do you think the average number of clanmates for a clan is these days?

Clan sizes are bigger today than what they were 7+ years ago. The current clan I'm in has 300+ members, but active wise...maybe 50ish or so. Years ago, my old clan was 80 to 100 members but we always had 75+ active. So, nowadays clans have larger member count, but less activity than before. I prefer the old days myself.

Keeping track of activity is a major pain too :P.  I guess you could write an API to check if clanmates were in/had hiscores change in the last 90 days and auto mark them off, but I don't have the programming skill to manage that.  So for now I'm stuck with a spreadsheet of hundreds of members and just kick the ones that haven't been spotted for the longest time as space is needed.

^ Yes it is, which is why old clan ways, aka: forums, was so much better. It showed the last time a member logged in!! So easy to keep track and boot inactive members.

There's like 3 big clans now who have 80+ members each. Rest probably have a small memberbase which will bring down the average alot, so it isn't really a suprise

Nope, when I came back to playing rs again, the clanning community was a complete 180 flip. Took so much time to get use to it, and I still don't prefer how "clans" are today.
