This final weekend was the Clarion Call – an occasion by which all XP beneficial properties have been doubled for gamers in a clan. Yesterday, Redditor spoffman7 posted another thread calling for an announcement on the XP cooldown, which they argued made the Clarion Call “completely pointless.”
As if to verify their level, the top-voted reply is an image of a fractional budge to the XP bar, when the UI signifies the acquire ought to be 15,000.

Sadly, it appears to be like prefer it’s being hamstrung by this XP charge cap… which they have been additionally below no obligation to implement.
