Unfortunately, I don't have screenshots, but I can verify that I am in a very similar situation. When I started the Cyanex research, I was (iirc) 7k affinity from reaching Rank 10. Now that I've finished the new sniper, The Cygnus Order is sitting at 18k affinity left. I've been looking forward to this Rank Up for some time, as I've told my stalwart-few members that we'd be expanding and recruiting more members after we hit this milestone. I'm eagerly awaiting a resolution to this, as while it's unfair to me, the primary contributor to the clan, I find it more an offense to my members. I want them to have a larger pool of players to reliably work with to accomplish greater and greater tasks.
