Just to get an idea of how many people here ... given the choice ... would want to play a clanner?

Yes, I've been waiting for this since GBL, my only consolation prize in recent years was the Clan Wolf ending in MW4 mercs.

I'd ofcourse play by the honor rules and grant hegira to respectable enemies.

This.
I may not like every house of the IS, and even hate some of them, but I will defend them all from the dirty clanners.

We're not that bad, we even sent a unit ahead to prep you guys for the invasion.

I've been waiting for the return of the clans since 31st Century Combat. I demand satisfaction. :)

Most definitely. Thankfully this is not that far from the invasion.

Inner Sphere all the way. I'd rather be a merc than a clanner. Fedcom all the way.

I'm torn. I like the teamwork concept of the IS, but at the same time, there is the greater sense of freedom with the clans. And on top of that, some clan mechs are pretty good

You know guys, I think the clanners will make me laugh.

I guess 80% of those that sign up as clanners once they become available are only after the easymode that clantech represents.
I know there are diehard lore-clanners here, but most won't be.

Then, if the devs are smart, we get canon countermeasures against clan superiority to keep the clans balanced for gameplay.
Something like a team size handicap (Binary vs Company, aka 10vs12) or a BV like system. Something like that: Yes you can sign up for combat with a binary of Timberwolves and Mad Dogs, but don't be surprised if you have to fight a reinforced company of Awesomes and Maulers.
Suddenly those guys would have to actually work for their victories, and would even have to be, as lore dictates, good pilots to archive anything.
Then there will be much whining, and us IS pilots laughing.

I'm kinda looking forward to it.

You know, I'm a huge fan of the Ghost Bears in the books and stuff... But as far as gameplay purposes go, I think I'd rather stick with the Inner Sphere and pray that I get a chance to salvage an Adder Prime, and maybe some extra weapons and equipment pods for it (Depending on how the advanced targeting computer works in the game - if it's even included - I'd think about swapping it for some salvaged jump jet pods). If I went clan, I'd want to stick with the rules of Zellbrigen. The IS just seems like it has better teamwork and more freedom in combat

Star Adders were not an invading Clan. So no.
