Intelligence Annex: Clans

Agents!

Welcome back to Intelligence Annex—our series of development blogs detailing all things in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. Today we are here to discuss the options available to you when searching for a clan, when managing one as well as a brief introduction to clan progression and the clan quarters.

OVERVIEW

A new feature in The Division 2 is the ability to create and manage clans in-game. Clans are designed to make it easy for you to find likeminded players to play with, and to make clan management a user-friendly experience.

Clans will focus on building tight knit communities with common goals, and will consist of up to 50 accounts, with up to four characters each. The ability to create a clan is unlocked early as a part of The Division 2's story progression. Anyone who has unlocked the feature can create their own, but to start progressing a clan, a total of four members is required.

Clan members can keep themselves informed through the clan feed, keeping you up to date with clan activity and progression. The ability to leave messages on the feed will enable members to easily stay in touch with each other and it also allows for leadership to pin important messages in order to coordinate events.

In addition, each clan will have access to two voice channels for up to 25 members each, allowing you to socialize with each other at all times, regardless of where in the game you are or what activity you currently are partaking in.

JOINING A CLAN

When searching for a clan, you will be presented with a number of options enabling you to find a clan that best suits your particular needs or playstyle.

  • Activities – The primary focus of the clan, PvE, PvP or both.
  • Most Active Times – The time of day the clan is the most active.
  • Atmosphere – The general atmosphere of the clan; would you prefer a relaxed easy-going clan, a clan focused on certain aspects of the game or a highly competitive PvP clan?
  • Mic Requirement – If the clan requires a microphone to be able to join.
  • Language – The primary spoken language of the clan.
  • Region – The geographical location of the clan members.

CREATING & MANAGING A CLAN

One of the first steps when creating a clan is to design your insignia, which will serve as the visual representation of your clan in The Division 2. When designing your insignia, you will be able to choose from a selection of icons, background and border types to create your own unique design.

Next, you need to name your newfound creation. A clan name can be between 4 to 15 letters long and the clan tag, which is visible to all players, consists of 3 capitalized letters. You can also write a presentation to introduce your clan to your players.

Finally, each clan can set their preferred privacy level, consisting of three distinct levels:

  • Open – Searchable and open for all players.
  • Invite Only – Searchable but requires an application to be sent and reviewed by clan leadership.
  • Private – A private clan is not searchable and can only be joined through an invite sent by the clan's leadership.

Clan membership is organized into four ranks, allowing for improved organisation and a clear structure:

  • Commander – The leader of the clan which has access to all administrative functions of the clan.
  • Lieutenant – The officer rank, which will be able to send out invites, review applications, promote and demote members as well as moderate the clan feed.
  • Agent – The established clan member able to invite potential recruits to the clan.
  • Recruit – The recruit is a new member of the clan with limited access to administrative clan functionality.

When reviewing applications as a Commander or Lieutenant, you will be able to inspect the applicant's characters, including gear, in order for you to quickly make an informed decision.

CLAN PROGRESSION

All in-game actions taken by members yielding experience points will also yield CXP (Clan XP), which is a new form of experience in The Division 2. Earning CXP will level up your clan, earning you and your friends additional benefits for each level on your Clans journey to level 30, as well as unlocking additional customization options for the insignia, showcasing your clan's veterancy.

Clans will collectively work towards common goals in The Division 2, in the shape of weekly projects and an upgradeable clan cache, both yielding rewards for all members upon completion. The weekly clan cache requires a weekly CXP goal to be reached with additional stretch goals. There are 3 tiers of reward - bronze, silver and gold. Reaching the bronze tier will unlock guaranteed rewards, while reaching the silver and gold tiers will further improve the week's rewards each time.

Clan projects are weekly tasks that grants a boost of CXP upon completion, each focusing on a particular aspect of the game. If your clan manages to complete all weekly projects, the clan will receive an additional, significant amount of CXP.

CLAN QUARTERS

The East Wing of the White House will serve as your clan's home, providing you with a space to socialize and regroup. Here you will find your clan stash to collect your weekly rewards, as well as the clan vendor, a unique vendor available only in the East Wing. As a natural part of the clan's level progression, the quality of the items offered by the clan vendor will improve. Certain levels will also unlock the ability to purchase unique cosmetic headgear, featuring your insignia, enabling you to represent your clan wherever you go.

The clan quarters will showcase your clan's top three weekly CXP contributors, giving recognition to your most dedicated members' accomplishments. There is more to discover in the clan quarters, that you will have to discover by yourself at release!

Thanks for joining us for today's look into clans! Be sure to join us over on the Official Forums or on the community Reddit to discuss today's article; we would love to hear your thoughts!

 

We will be releasing these articles regularly, so remember to keep an eye out!

I will say, glad the clan interface is in game. Hated using TCGRW network pages. An App is handy but it was limited and painful.

And maybe there are advantages or logistics with the clans all having The Whitehouse since it is the boo.

But I kinda hoped there be a few buildings in the LZ that clans could choose as their clan safehouse. For the sake of character.

All this news makes me even MORE excited about the game and it seems this is going to be a HUGE part of my first day or so playing the game. 

Unlike you I had a decent experience with the GRW network page, it wasn't ideal for sure though but I wonder how limiting an in-game UI will be to manage events or communication etc. 

For a PC clan/task force though I doubt we will make use of the chat channels, likely stick with Discord or TeamSpeak but its a GREAT thing to have for console players! Its a great innovation, not sure if any other games have this feature for console playing??

I'm loving this so much, I just can't wait to get started. 

 

I even updated my GRW Network Task Force page accordingly lol


In 2010, a crack commando unit still evading prison for a crime they didn't commit promptly escaped from another maximum security stockade near the Manhattan underground to the Washingon D.C. swamp land. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The Division 2 Team.
