What are the real benefits of being in an Alliance anyway?
e.g. does it actually increase LF's etc, etc
It cost you 1% to be in an Alliance which I presume just vapourises into AWS thin air? So there needs to be a benefit or two.
I joined an Alliance this time around and have found the forums to be useful so that is a definite benefit, but it is also non-tangible e.g. can't be physically counted as to what benefit it provides, like a LF could be.
There is one big disadvantage in being in an Alliance being that you then get tarred with the same brush when people go on an Alliance bashing warpath, therefore there needs to be outweighing advantages to get and keep people in Alliances.
PS - For the record, I am actually enjoying being a part of Skyconnect as it is helping me to get a better understanding of the game.
