I think I will tell the clan that if there is noone within the next month, I
will shut it down..

We got the same problem.  I can't even get my clanmates to play on our
server because of this ranking BS.

We too will pull up stakes if at the end of the month things aren't
different.  I had high hopes for this being "the next great game" for
our clan, but that is eroding because of the ranked server problem.
