I agree and disagree.

I do think the intracacies of both gameplay and character set-up these days are on the verge of bamboozlement and if I hadn't been playing such a long time I'd have felt totally overwhelmed as a newb.

However, the way I look at it there's two types of games; quickies which are very easy to master (the sort you'd find on Miniclip, for example, which are tea-break games).

Then there's the long-haul games, Runescape being one of them, where you know you're going to have to invest the rest of your life merely learning how to move from A to B and kill a chicken.

So, yeah, while it's complicated if you're starting from a position of total ignorance (I don't mean that in the rude sense of the word), it's also part and parcel of commencing any of the long-haul games out there.
Being easy to learn does not mean it is a simple game by far. It just means the entry level layer is easy enough to grasp that you aren't turned off the moment you step into the door.

A good game should be like that. Easy to learn the basics, but be deep enough that it takes a lot of time and effort to master all the complexeties of it.

RS tends to fail on that first part though.

RS3 has a fully established
clan system
which has received many substantial updates this year alone already. Jagex also reinstated
Clan Cup
at Anachronia just a week ago.

Perhaps RS3 is not "the" most new player friendly game in regard to clans, but certainly it is a far more new player friendly one than other games without any in-game Clan System like
Clan Citadel
.
Heh. Fully established? No offense, but clans in Runescape are nothing more than glorified chatrooms. Not to mention they are missing some of the basic functionalities of a guild system such as an activity tracker listing when the members were last logged in.

They even went so far as to nerf functionality of clans not that long ago by removing all but one of the abilities of the Avatars.

Don't you realize most of the trash MMORPGs don't even have a in-game Clan features? As I mentioned, RS3 doesn't have "the" best Clan System, but it certainly beats the have-nots by a landslide. :D
Don't know what games you've played, but every one I've played has had better guild systems than RS.

Oh what? You have never played any game with no in-game Clan system like Clan Citadel in RS3? I am sure many old school gamers have and I know at least one such old school game has asked the game developer to make engine changes to develop a Clan System like Citadel. :D
You know, if the citadel really did anything, I would buy your argument. Citadel is just a cosmetic figurepiece.

But as of right now the clan system is not really any different than having a forum and IRC chat system.

The only real thing that clans have in RS3 is the Rated Clan Wars system, which nobody even bothers using.

There is so much more Clans could be, but as of right now, they really aren't much more than glorified chatrooms.
