    As part of the ongoing clan update, a few changes have been made.

    - A new iteration of the challenge system has been released.
    - Clans with shared members may now challenge each other if shared members are excluded.
    - The number of clans a person may now join is now limited to 3.

    I am already a member of four clans. Do I have to leave on of them?

    If you are in more than 3 already, then that is fine.

    As most people stay at RHP for at least the duration of an annual subscription, if not indefinitely, won't it soon seem a little unfair that some players are in 6 clans, whilst others are only allowed to be in a maximum of 3? I think the restriction is a great idea but feel it only fair that it ought to be implemented across the board.

    Ideally people would cut back to 3, but I don't want to force anyone.

    Russ I admire you for trying to be fair because you sure can't please everybody. I don't see how you do it.

    I'm with Exy here. What's the value of a rule, even a good one, if it's only applicable to part of the community? Why not just make it a suggestion, if you don't want to force anyone to do anything they don't want to do. Because, clearly, you're able to impose this rule on people before they join 3 plus clans.

    I should say, that somehow I feel cheated. And I hadn't even thought of joining 4 clans. Make it a rule or make it a suggestion, but this inbetween stuff doesn't work.

    Most people, myself included, have voluntarily reduced their clan memberships to three.

    Thanks Russ for the updates - the challenge system has improved at least 100%! Great job.

    This strikes me as a classic case of wet paint syndrome - you didn't want 4 clans until you were told you couldn't have them.

    This is a perfectly reasonable approach, implementing a new rule whilst protecting the staus quo of existing users. Happens all the time in life.
