Are there any comp servers where the clans are relatively evenly matched and also nice to each other?... Just asking for a friend :D

This is actually a really good question, is there such a thing as friendly competition in CH? Or does it always end up being hostile?

It's not entirely hostile group vs group. In morrigan it was usually player vs player. Each clan has their loud mouth players. Certain mentalities rub other clans wrong. At least in morrigan our only clan that's competitive towards mine, most are nice and quiet. Sometimes they help, and sometimes we help them. Just depends on who wants to be a jerk. A lot of it is in whispers now. Back in 2011-2013 I think the hostility was a lot worse, but OTM started temp bans on griefing and being hateful to other people. Warnings were given, and if the player didn't adhere to the warnings it was a 72 hour ban or longer.

In Taranis we had a somewhat friendly and respectful competition between two-three clans around 2011-13. Both leaders punished their members for bad behaviour.
Nowadays for the past 2-3 years it's nearly every time hostile. Wether we had clans locking against each other or a united server as we are right now. People keep insulting each other for the smallest mistake.

90% of the time competition turns hostile and it creates an environment that’s not as good as it should be. 2 big factors are usually the 2nd clan hating on the dom clan for being dom/greedy or the dom clan hating the 2nd clan for being jerks, or simply because of select individuals. In extreme cases you’ll have extremely hostile competition in which players from both sides exchange hateful words whenever possible and/or griefing... although griefing seems to be a rare scenario.

Competition overall is a dying trend anyways at the endgame level.

Mm agree with what's being said, from what I have seen people don't create a comp clan just for fun, it's usually a break off of people who don't like how the main clan run things or have experienced issues with the people there, which means naturally there is a level of animosity. That combined with people having played for 5 years and taking it all pretty seriously means that tensions run high o.O
