Here's a free tip for those leaders trying to recruit players to their alliance:

WRITE A MESSAGE, don't just send an invite! Tell potential recruits about who you are, what the goals are for your alliance, what kind of players you are looking for, what your experience is.

Also, find out about who you are trying to recruit by asking questions - you may not want them after all! I want to be in an alliance where the leader wants to know what kind of player I am.

Communication plus activity are the two key ingredients of a successful alliance.

I've been in a world recently for 350 ticks and have been sent 16 invites to join various alliances (some top 10). Not 1 has sent me a message or asked me anything about myself. This puts me off, as it suggests the leader doesn't give a monkeys who they recruit as long as they have a reasonable rank.

Yeah, it may take a bit more time, but at least you'll be upping your recruitment success rate, and will be recruiting better comrades.

Go on, COMMUNICATE, you know you want to ;)

Hey!! good one ;)

I haven't played this game much (new here) but I can tell you that this tip applies more than only on the game, :P

Some people have told me: "If u don't talk, God won't hear you" ;)

This is true. But most alliances are recruited outside of the game. Ingame recruits sometimes dont work.

So why did I receive over 15 invites including top 10 alliances between tick 450 & 800?

Ingame recruits are bound to fail if the alliance leader & the recruit know nothing about each other...

Out of game recruiting can't happen without in game recruiting. How can you really know someone without watching them.

Now I am going to get spammed with messages from the leaders of alliances rank 4-63 that I don't really want to be spammed with.
