I left a clan to go create my own and I had others join who also left clans, so what this means is none of us can cap.. Does this mean that the citadel is going "dilapidate". We all capped from other clans but I assume it does not carry over? Help please and thanks
Yes and no, leaving a clan and making your own isn't a mistake ! but opening the citadel could be if none of you can cap.
The 7 day ruling will stop anyone from capping at another citadel within 7 days of leaving a clan, regardless if whether the clan is newly made or not. So unless you can recruit 5 people in and have them cap for you, you are looking at your citadel locking at the tick. On the bright side, at least you aren't losing resources already gathered, and you don't have a tier to lose.
Use the time you would have spent capping to your advantage, check out the recruitment threads, spend time skilling/killing and chat to those around you in an attempt to get more members into clan. Be open and honest about your situation tho, and reward them for their efforts to help you
If its a newly formed citadel worst case scenario and will lock itself up as you dont know any plots and dilapidate and a tier 1 timber can't dilapidate either, on the tick you can restore the same getting twice the cap
For future use to you form a clan wait 7 days till you open the the citadel
Thanks guys, yeah got it sorted now, even enough resources for an avatar as well as upkeep. However Since im new to owning a clan. does it just take 3000 timber to get the first avatar on tier1? when next build tick comes? I have put the order through.
So yup, the tier 1 avatar habitat costs you 3k. timber - on top of your upkeep, and as you have the order placed for it, it will be built at your next build tick.
( as an aside, If you are going to take your citadel as far as you can, its a great idea. to upgrade the storehouse as the first of any upgrades after the citadel itself - since it is the level of this that determines the size of your weekly cap).
Best of luck
