While i understand the reasoning behind the rankings change, i dont personally agree. Everything that im about to say is just my opinion, and i respect everyone that disagrees with it. Also, my clan didnt changed any positions in the leaderboard, so its more a discussion about the principle behind it than anything else.
Of course that the question to "what is the best d3 clan in the world" can be answered in multiple ways, depending on how you define a good clan yourself. But i liked the idea of seeing the clans that could consistenly put players in high rankings at the top. If you want to be the best clan out there, you shouldnt be able to "choose" in wich leaderboards you want to compete. It should be about how well you can compensate your weak classes with high placements on the strong ones.
With the changes, i can easily spot two big leaderboard climbs. CRC getting top1 NS over Reign, and ZE getting around 10 leaderboard positions in S5, being now top 5. While i consider both clans amazing examples of the top clans out there, i would like to see them getting high in the leaderboards by conquering all of them. Instead, ZE got over 4300 points from the removal of the two weakest leaderboards, and CRC got over 2600. Again, i dont think either of them should be that low on the leaderboards, but ultimately this should be decided by their clan, and ZE didnt even tried to put a crusader in the top 4k world (something extremely easy to do), just to use the most extreme example. That becomes really unfair to Reign in NS, since their worst leaderboard is top 17, but now they are 16points behind the top1 clan, since now you only have 7 available leaderboards to use, and they are at least top 13 in all of them (removing the 2 worst positions).
Im not in Reign, and im not even a NS player, so that doesnt affect me, but it still looks weird to see a clan with a top 2.5k solo in the first position.
Anyway, regardless of what you guys decide to do, i still think that this is the best "clan leaderboard" out there, so my respect for the website stays the same.
Also, i wanna say that i have the biggest respect for all the clans that i mentioned, and strongly believe that all of them would eventually be around the top positions, score adjustment or not.
