Maybe the main reason is because there is no figth. Only diplomacy.
Loffe told that many try to NAP whit his alliance. And is only day 7 of the server.
I think this tell a lot of what is the bigest problem in the game.
Hardly you find a server where you can have a good figth for the conquest of your quadrant.
As i said im not a leader or anything.. just a regualr player..
In fact, in my last server when i was leading (com4) i refused to take anymore alliances to join me. i had my owen alliance and that was enough for me..
but every alliance that i refused to the other side recruited and thats how i found my self 150 players against 500.. (it was a server with barely no techs btw)
i get your point and i agree with it. i wish you could only be allied with 60-100 players and thats it, server would be much more interesting that way.
but it isnt.. and if you are not taking alliances with you they can go with the other side like happened to me in com 4. so i understand Gow leadership offer for Duat to join them (if thats true)
Because if not with them they might join forces with Gunners or whatever other side that will just cause the game more unbalance..
