if you knew anything about the top 5 clans you'd know that Xpd is always under constant scrutiny for paying people off with war chests. Even the fact that he mentions a war chest is a stab at Xpd

I feel that trying to bribe someone or pull them from another clan is just dirty. There are plenty of clanless people.

That's completely nonsensical, so what if XPD uses warchests a lot, the fact that he mentions warchests isn't an insult to XPD. If I start talking about real estate, will Donald Trump try to sue me?

XPD gives warchests to players to join. Seems to work well.

It depends mostly on the recruit more than the recruiter and whether he is in his current clan cuz they are his friends or he just want a toon when he needs one and taking it as a transition till he gets better states and then enroll in a higher states clan.

 

That being said anything will attract him and not just an iTunes card or better position or joining a certain clan for the tag or maybe he just want the higher states toon.

 

As for the '' sniping '' part i find offering money to join is wrong....BUT asking to join the clan after he finds that the person has good play style and active is completely fine, Of course if the clan itself is active and doing lots of contests and countdowns doesn't consider shameful at all as the player will have to earn those cards with great games and what not.

Name another instance where a different clan is accused of buying people off with war chests and please show proof of this. Until then it's against Xpd. I doubt an NVA member would know anything about a top tier clan in this game

I think it's ok to let a player that you respect know there is a position for them in your clan. Its a nice thing to let someone know the door is open for them. Actively recruiting/sniping is another story.

This thread has nothing to do with accusing Expendables. Your insisting that it's about you is incorrect. 

 

Please discuss the the topic but do not turn this into "I incited this...." When I did not say any clan name or imply anything. 

 

 

The discussion is on recruitment and paying or compensating with a rank member to get thm to leave their current clan. Stay on topic please.

Yinz can't buy any of our people. We are all independently wealthy. Unless you have a 8 digit trust fund we don't even let you in. So no our people can't be bought for a few measly war chests Pitt.

Just don't recruit, and you don't have to worry about doing it wrong.

For a MEMBER, wanting to join another clan while in one's current clan is perfectly fine and the decision should be understood by any respectable clan leader.

 

For a RECRUITER, I don't approve of "sniping" other members into your clan. While it's fine to advertise your clan in general, messaging someone who's already in a clan and going "hey we made a new clan," nudge-nudge-wink-wink, is a bit dirty IMO. The decision to switch clans should be made solely by the switcher, and not influenced by any external sources.

 

Forget about flat-out bribery. That is straight up despicable and shows your clan is so bad you have to pay people to join.

This is pretty much how I always handled it when I was in Titan as a Recruiter and Deputy. I never liked the idea of contacting people already clanned up. Now if someone told me that Player A was unhappy and thinking of leaving, then I might PM them. That PM would consist of me asking them if they were thinking of leaving and if they were indeed unhappy to let me know if they chose to leave. But, I would not actively try to pull someone from another clan. 

 

If I was playing with a friend in another clan, I have said things like. "Man I love tooning with you. I wish you were with us." Something like that maybe. But never a full on recruitment of anyone actively and happy in another clan.

ok, if someone gave you $100 to join a clan, but you couldn't ever text in game a mean or nasty comment, could you do it?

No. There are too many incompetent players for me not to type something "mean" for the rest if my blitz career.

It's always so funny that an outsider would make such a bold accusation with no proof what's so ever. Mind your business and go play your 183 more because you still have no clue how to use it after 1199 battles

 

I think this post reflects badly on you.

 

Someguyfrompitt posted a very general question and in no way associated you or the XPD clan (which I respect greatly in game) with bribing members from other clan to join yours. I also was not aware of any association of this behavior wth XPD and I suspect most forumers are not either.

 

I also think that your jab regarding the totally unrelated topic of SomeGuy's stats with the FV183 is disingenuous and rubbed me the wrong way. Better stats in the game do not automatically give you the moral high ground in the forums, both have nothing to do with each other.
