Agree with most of previous suggestions. 

Totals from previous THREE weeks since one week's statistics can be a fluke:

Victory Marks earned

PVP Marks earned

Combat Marks earned

XP earned

Gross economic activity of clan and members

(And while we're talking about clans, warehouse logs please!)

Also, presumably we want to balance things out a bit...

Yes, include the strengths of the clans you list but perhaps call it "Clan List" instead of "Clan Leaderboard". A large percentage of players will gravitate to someone called the leaders without reading deeper.

We need Looking for Group as well... thats how you truly get new recruits. Its better to play with them than to just join.

We already mentioned somewhere that we are going to send new players to the clans (it will be part of the tutorial orders). 
And will post their arrival to the Caribbean into national chat once they pass the MC exam.


In this regards
Lets discuss what should be on the clan leaderboard to sway the rookie to join one or another clan/guild just by looking at the numbers?

Examples

  1. Ports controlled
  2. Active fleet (players logged in today)
  3. PvP marks last week
  4. PvP battles last week
  5. Port battles won last week

most active timezone would be needed as well.

Please also list:

  • hours of activity of players (eg. a graph showing active players through the whole week would be a dream...)
  • number of ships (BR, tonnage) built by planers last week
  • number of PvP and PvE fights last week (total)

This would allow for players to get clans that fit their play time, as well as their style (eg. PvE clans, eco clans etc.)

 

Please change:

  • port battles won is not the best incentive. It shouldn't be a decisive factor. It's inaccurate and even if people follow it, it would mean snowballing of clans.

I've thought about this as an actual new player, after posting the suggestion quoted above by Bobbit1. 

However the developers choose to set this up, here's what I need to know in order to pick a clan in-game, without having to refer to outside resources.  It needs to have decent filters so I don't have to scroll through endless pages.  As an usable interim alternative to in-game (IF this is easier to deploy) read live data from the servers and post it with daily refreshes either in a module accessible at the shards list/server signon, or on a page at the Naval Action website.

What I need, as a new player.

  • Active clan.  Default display only Yes, based on last member logon, if inactive clans are displayed at all.
  • Seeking new members.  Default display only Yes, if closed clans are displayed at all.
  • Active member count.
  • Nation.
  • Primary time zone.
  • Language spoken
  • Ports
  • Primary clan focus (trade, raid, conquest, etc).
  • Player focus sought (trade, raid, etc.  Smaller clans might actually need new members with a different focus).

AND what the participation exceptions are.  Life outside the game may only allow for logging in a couple times a week.  Which might not be suitable for a tight-knit clan attempting conquest half-way across the map.

I do like the idea of doing the tutorial before being able to join a clan.  It saves existing clan members from having to completely orient someone from the ground up.  On that side of things, clan officers might want to know basic stats about prospective members, such as a permit count, first logon date, etc.  This does not need to be exhaustive, just fodder for chat questions.

And an observation about PvE (which is where I am currently learning the production mechanics).  Improving clan access/visibility will not improve playability on PvE.  The player population is currently too low.  The trader tool needs to be improved so buyers and sellers have a better idea of where the contracts might be.

Honestly having an activity graph that highlights active timezones is the most important thing. If a new player joins a nation that is not active at their playtime it will not go well.

I would like that in an ideal world but as a new player not currently in a clan I can live with a stated primary timezone.  I suspect that tracking and displaying this kind of data might add to server load.

Well allow clan lead to plot his clans peak population on a chart including timezone.  A clan's peak activity period is critical information.

Which I would be more than happy to see.  All I am expressing is the minimum I need as a new player.
