I think the removal of clan Dilapidation would benefit all of the clans that play at their leisure and are smaller / more closely knit. Running a clan shouldnt feel like a full time job in a game for no pay. It should be a place for like-minded players to enjoy the game together and share experiences.
Since that update, it is now possible for 1 clan member with an avatar to collect all of the resources necessary for the weekly upkeep, even for a Tier 7 citadel. Then, all that is needed to prevent the citadel from dilapidation is for 4 more member to "visit" the citadel during that week so that you have a visitor count of 5.
