The funny thing about HTK (and I’m going to say it with objectivity) is that HTK is up because have Rising.
And I will not say if I consider Rising good or bad player, because it´s not the issue, but he, with all that expensive last generation equipment manages to beat almost everyone and stay for weeks in the first place.
And when Rising connects (which is connected for a good part of the day), most players from other clans disappear, only the members of HTK are left playing. And that is the reason why your clan is up.
The point is that Rising can be a time bomb, in the sense that he´s not fond of the clan, he just has his personal reasons to be there. So at any time you are left without Rising and then we will see who of the foals are going to go out on the field if want to climb again.
