This is quite an interesting post/statement and I agree, we are the example:
I play with a CP of 4 and we are semi-active: Only in the evenings. There is not much to do for us although we like the b-grade pvp we have from time to time.
Of course, there are clan activities like epic raids and sieges but we don’t feel like joining a clan cause you need to be active (We get kicked out of the serous clans cause of activity) and all the other clans pull of too much drama as you can see in the posts above.
I know this is our choice but on the other hand we cannot even level our own clan? (Academy? , No change with 4ppl at serous raids...).
So what do we do? I guess in the end we need to join a clan....
A bit more action in the server besides the sieges and epic raids would be so much better, At least for us :)
