Ok, seeing as I am new to this game, and am already hooked. I had a few questions on alliances. Now I know you can message certain members and ask (if they have open membership) and by that logic I'm sure some alliances will message you (try to recruit)? I have read everything I can find on alliances. What in your opinion is the best route to go as it pertains to joining an alliance? Or should I just sit back enjoy for just a bit and not decide on an alliance?
