I think having clans already at grade 7 will bring more drama then resetting them to level 1. It will immediately start the whole "well we've been here before you, we were here since Leonis server" or "we are better than your clan, look we have all these alliances and and stuff already"....
This gives a fresh restart, and everyone who cares enough will have to work for it and fight for it. The "bad behavior" happens whether the color of a clan name is purple or blue either way, so saying that it will entice unnecessary drama doesn't really make sense when in reality the people that do things to get themselves reported, are going to do those things no matter if it is clan upgrading point farming or game arena, or wherever it may be. I'm not arguing here, but trying to show you that what you are basically stating is that by clans taking the effort to clan point farm(play the game regularly) is gonna cause drama? That literally doesn't add up at all, rather than just not wanting to upgrade your clan again because you "had" to before. It really is simple here, if we care enough about our clans they gave us the option to reserve the name... and we can choose weather or not we want to farm them back to grade 7 or not.
I think it is inappropriate to assume that just because certain people don't like this minor change, or work effort they will have to do again.... They decide to say "oh will it will cause major drama and problems" when in reality, that is putting fear into peoples minds of something you simply don't know will happen or not. Again I think putting clans straight to grade 7 will cause more problems because of egos, and others going right back to "afking" and showing off their IM spending/lucky spin skills and showing off their riches rather than this will entice people to actually start playing the game again, which YES may cause clan wars....THAT IS A GOOD THING!
