And now at the writing of this comment, you are a raw cadet. =)
Seems to me, going over your games that you play a wide diversity of maps and strategies. Perhaps you just have not figured out what works where with which. As a graduate of the SoC you should know that the basic strategy for escalating spoils on the classic map is one that is sure to raise your score and your rank in the position you are in now.
Being in a clan should be a means of improving your understanding of a great many strategies and winning tactics. If it is not doing that for you, then you should really consider the usefulness of being in the clan. The whole point in being in a clan is to form a team that will help you to raise your score and rank. But I also understand that there are problems and learning difficulties in clans as well.
Some times it's just a simple question of finding what works and sticking to it. So perhaps if something does not work then Change it and see what happens. Sometimes being in a clan is not the best that you can do, depending on the kind of clan and clan members???
The student asked, "Master, of all the different kung fu styles, which is the best?" The humble priest replied, "That would depend on the fight. A tiger may never hope to defeat a dragon but against a lion, the king of Beast's, the tiger's paw, rules supreme. Even so the snake's subtlety can bring the tiger down." To this the student ask, "Then would it not be wise to learn all the different styles there are?" To which the Shaolin munk replied, "It may take a lifetime, to truly master just one style."
Think about it.
