The Finnish Flash
That's absurd. If there was a function like that built into the game, and the attacks were random, Dynami would have gotten hit hard at some point, since everyone else has at some point. At the very least its safe to say they odds are very high that they would have, and there is no reason for the staff to selectively tamper with the numbers. Plus there probably would have been some sort of confirmation by now if that was the case. IIRC, the staff has actually revolked the popular Network Attack theory which is essentially the same as yours.
I wouldn't count on it.
Let's take a closer look. Here're the forces of clans and their member counts courtesy of AQStats.
Igneus, 1st in members, 2nd in forces: Members: 23,343 Force: 1,048
Aerodu 2nd in members, 8th in forces: Members: 16,580 Force: -200,483
Nocturu, 3rd in members, 6th in forces: Members: 10,406 Force: -22,840
Lucian, 4th in members, 4th in forces: Members: 6,585 Force: -9,917
Glacius, 5th in members, 7th in forces: Members: 4,699 Force: -29,484
Geoto, 6th in members, 5th in forces: Members: 4,148 Force: -14,004
Nautica, 7th in members, 3rd in forces: Members: 3,985 Force: -204
Dynami, 8th in members, 1st in forces: Members: 2,981 Force: 13415
The clan with the second most members' force count is over 6 times worse than any other clan. The two clans with the least members are 1st and 3rd respectively in force count. There's hardly any correlation whatsoever in member count and forces, and there should be. This and the odd regularity of the intervals at which these numbers change suggest that something's up.
Whatever's decreasing our clans' numbers (abnormal or not), it doesn't really matter, peace and defense is the only way to bring these numbers up.
