wow i just popped by to see how my old guild was doing and then i saw Forbes mention us, lol.
I would love to have you guys in our alliance and i think you'd fit in but the rules thing would be an issue (assuming you still have the same rules). We dont have any crazy rules just less rules but more expectations. basically if ppl cant follow the "We are all friends or will be so treat each other as such" then we dont want them in our guild/alliance. We are also luxon (you were kurz i believe) and also our alliance is almost full (but not completely full). Not that we have tons of ppl just a group of smaller guilds. But we do still have room so give a shout if you wanna be turncoats and switch to luxons, LOL. We do have lots of PVE stuff going on but we are also laid back. Basically, if your social and nice we'll love the crap out of you
My 2 cents (back on topic):
there are good things about more active alliances and bad things
good: you can still chill and do your own thing in an active alliance, some ppl will embrace the activity and some will simply spectate and sit back, it makes recruiting easier if you have a solid alliance, theres generally more features available (TS/vent, websites, forums, build sharing, tips, give aways, etc), and you can learn a lot from others that are more active.
bad: in a larger alliance there are generally more problems and more problem ppl (of course this is solved with careful recruiting but let be honest, not all guilds have great recruiting practices), and you might feel your voice isnt heard in a bigger alliance.
just try to agree on what kind of alliance you want and youll be good to go
My p.o.v. on alliances: i prefer lots of activity but small in size, then you get to group up with a lot of the same ppl and it just makes the GWing lots of fun.
EDIT: dont worry, i didnt vote in your poll
