I have found out too many times you recruit a new member and soon after they are MIA. I think that there are only a small handful of good clans out there with most of the players worth recruiting. To many times I have had members become inactive or just bail out on a fight. I think from now on I am just going to be a Lone Wolf and just have fun. There is not to many players that are willing to put in the time to build a good clan and many just give up, due to the fact that there are more and more Glitchers and Lag Cheats to deal with each day! I know that the haters will have cute words to say!

Most people in my clan are real life friends.
That must be nice. Sounds like you and your peeps have a good clan.
I sort of do the same, our core...the PLYMCO accounts, are all real life friends from my home town. Some of the other members are family of mine and then we have some long time members who might as well be family at this point. We mix in a bunch of randoms/noobs too though and some stay, some leave.
