The developers have put forward an idea to have a symbol for your clan put above your head.  This is against their own vision of Darkfall.  What they really need to do is make it so you can dye your armor or put clan colors and symbol on your armor.  Maybe even make it possible to put your clan symbol on a shield and cloak.  The developers are right as combat is bland to the eyes (everyone is the same color).  Allowing us to put stuff on our armor and shield would help make battles more colorful.

The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

I agree.  Throwing something on clothing would be nice..shield or otherwise would work as well.  I'm not a fan of the floating ID tag either.  We will see what they decide to do with this.  I'd rather have a robe or paint on a shield than anything floating above my head:)

Floating clan tags seems to really go against what DF has traditionally stood for.

Go with clan colors or talbards or shields.  DAOC used to let you go with shields and cloaks displaying clan logos

It's already there for parties. I really don't think it would be an issue as long as it's only on allies.

Actually, it really isn't against their own vision of DFO lol. This isn't the first time they've wanted to add floating icons over players heads. They actually have already been there and done that but then removed it later, then added it back in but made it so it showed up for only those in your party etc. It was revised a few times I guess. Seems they are going back to their original vision now though.
