Its nice that you are all one family, dont get me wrong, but MRA literally translates to Mass Recruiting Alliance. Everything you just said to counter my argument, further proves that you are a MRA. I text in bold above is evidence coming from you yourself. Also, if you pull up a map, you are spread thin across all 4 core oceans with the bulk of your players in Northwest 45. You will likely survive in your core, but the competition is to strong to be spread that wide this early. Hope you are a good diplomat Mr. MRA.Interesting take on the MRA part on Indie.. I knew this would be the first thing said..
We took on 3 divisions because we had enough players request to join us to fill 6, we have a waiting list and from that alone I could set up a 4th division and it would also be around the top 12 ranking, that is how popular this alliance has become. People like our no frills style.. I will not be doing that but if players leave we will recruit from that list and alliances we beat the tar out of.
Indie traditionally do have 3 divisions, we won Nicaea with 3 divisions and a similar cap. Although we have played with less that is our ideal formula so we'll stick with it. Remember we don't do all the coalition, huggin and cuddlin so we'll need them.
Look at the players, look at the rankings of all 3 divisions, all 3 are in the top 7, all 3 are in the top 6 for fighters.. There is an even balance of good players in all 3 divisions. The II and III divisions have players ranked higher than the top ones in the first division, not that any of that matters to us because as I've said before Indie is one family, it's the server who make the cap, not us.
If you want to look further down the roster and point out players who aren't as strong as our top players fair enough, but look at every other alliance and try telling me they don't have smaller players too? Of course they do so who is to say that their small players will do any better than ours?
Anyway if that's an MRA then it's the best one I've ever seen..
