lol this topic.
can i share my experience?
only once i try partecipate in a pb (i was in a inger in a 4rate pb btw) and now i know all the jobs my mother do at night (i really don't care but others maybe care)
so, i stop caring about it and i go around/near pb with a frigate ganking lone/late players.
Hell i escorted a russian player last week to Azua i wasn't even interested in the pb but the last thing he said was "now go away noob we don't need you", LOL is not like he asked (try to think when one of his clan ask again for an escort what i'm going to answer...)
if this is the case you can think the defense too
btw this is why i don't even care anymore when people call in chat "every ship needed for the defence of xxxx" and i think there are more people like me
if we can't join cause we ruin your pb why lone/rogue players are blamed if they don't show at the defensive pb? really that piss me off.
it's hard to write "follow x player we got a strategy" or "focus z" or "insert things here" in chat.
because you think they do it on purpose? really? all are spy exept your clans member? lol
On my part i play the game like i enjoy it but really stop saying your is the only way to play the game because your clan did an alliance/agreement with a clan from swerige/pirate/french/insert nation here.
And especially after this week when, after the brits buy a flag, the chat become a hell of different letters (imho those are hieroglyphs ) of people that insult eachothers (devs we really need need a translate button or a way to copy more line of text) and as result there is only chaos like this topic where the OP said something that clans need to comunicate more to the plebs and you ended again talking of how you like the game in one way and fox2run(or others) in his way.
now btw all this discussion about politics is ininfluent because the alliance and war system make even rogue and lone players more focus in the direction chosen by all or the make less money and xp from pvp (even if they don't want)...
