why is the clan tag 1-3 characters? our clan tag has always had 4 characters and this has been available in all other games we have played.
Even warcraft 3, which dota came from was 2-4 chars.

3 is a pretty workable character-count. I dont see why to raise it. Most longer clantags can easily be shortened (by for example simply not abbravating the frequently used "of")

why limit it to 3 is the real question. if everyone else lets you have 4 why be different and force people to change their tags to 3?
just seems illogical for the amount of effort it would take to change.

Take for example the displayed nickname. It's lenght has to be limited, for obvious reasons (limited space to display ;D)
The clantag adds to the displayed nick, thus making it necessary to limit the chosen nickname for a player on account creation to fewer characters in the first place.
Shortening the clantag allows for longer nicks. ^^
And I'm pretty sure there are more people out there likely to vote in favor of a long nick instead of a long clantag.
