I'm going to say this simply and if you aren't able to accept it then it's on you. There is NO such thing as "poaching" players from clans. That's the exact same thing as saying that the players in your clan is your property which claiming people as property is highly illegal in the US. Players in a clan CAN leave a clan for another WHENEVER they want for WHATEVER reasons. You all just need to grow up and stop whining about little stupid crap like, "he stole a player from my clan". It's childish and alot of us mature players are starting to get really sick and tired of it. If a player leaves your clan and joins another that has invited them then it's because of something they don't like about your clan, not because someone invited them.

And then the third forum flame war began.

 

Actually still considered poaching though.

I disagree. How would you feel if someone "stole" players from your clan and you were the leader? Would you feel happy? No. It's inconsiderate. It's not illegal, true, but just because it's possible certainly doesn't make it acceptable. Let them come to you, not vice versa.

When someone from One clan goes in and tries to recruit a player from another clan saying the we dont want our members and that we say they suck and that our clan members should join their clan thats poaching. Further more its slander and defamation which is highly illegal in the United States

That's a pretty misguided view. At the bare minimum reaching out to players already in a clan shows that you don't have respect for the clan they're in. You can use any shady practice you want and call it anything you want but you don't then get to be upset that you get a trash reputation for doing those things.

'poaching' as deemed here, seems perfectly fine in my opinion, unless it is used in excess to target one specific clan in order to destroy them. Players have the right to chose which clan they want to be with. Most of us here are capable of making our own choices

When I moved from SPUD to SPUDX, they enticed me with monthly back and foot rubs. Best thing I ever did, though occasionally I wished I had held out for daily hugs.

if a player leaves my clan for another, I won't get all pissy like the rest of you do. It means to me that the player didn't want to be in the clan for some reason and it'll be harder for them to rejoin if they want to come back. And here's the definition for Poach.

Poach: verb: to hunt or fish unlawfully usually on private property "to trespass on"

The way you all use Poach is like that the clan is your property and the players in it are yours. The players are individuals. They have a choice to leave or not. Nothing is or can force them to chose

Well, if someone leaves your clan, better do something about it, or you might just end up as a one man clan. I disagree, and do say there is something called poaching clans. Clans are like a business, to stay ahead, you need to think a head, and sometimes thinking ahead involves poaching.

putting this into the world of sports, how come it is not allowed for teams to go talk to a player from a different team unless he is an unrestricted free agent or initiates the talk? its considered poaching otherwise...

Jesus Christ... This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a couple weeks. You're in an non-competitive clan trying to talk to a (mostly) competitive community. Holding on to players is how you stay competitive and relevant, which is exactly what you aren't.

Doesn't matter how many rants you post about this. You're going to get a bad reputation if you poach members. The fact that you don't think there's anything wrong with it will never change the fact that others think there's something wrong with it.

I'd just give up man. These idiots need educating. It should be a players choice to change clan, not a leaders.

however some of the top clans love drama and so therefore will create it. No one likes losing players but you can't treat players like property. The top clans want to keep their players which is fair enough

I think posting a rant in size 25 font has already elevated him to bad reputation status.

the idiots are you guys with the patheticness of the way you try to recruit other clans members. For a clan to stoop so low as to have to lie in order to get its members is so laughable no wonder yall are in the forums trying to clear up your trashed name

And in the end, there is NOTHING you can do to keep a player forever if for whatever reason they want to leave. There is a very simple thing to do.... recruit.

I know. It's sad how many people get so serous about a mobile game that might disappear in a few years. They act like its real when it's not. I see [edited]like this in alot of MMOs that has clans and this is the first time I have ever came across players whining about "poaching"
