Thought it would be good to ask why it is that we stay in alliances where the leaders have gone MIA or come back just for short stints only to disappear again?
Given my own experience I know I stayed because I really liked the friendships forged with a few of players. Yet as time wore on, I started to lose more and more respect for leadership and became disappointed with the lack of direction. The team became less active and DNA greed was on the rise. Yet there was still a push to get to 5/4 at the cost of core players. This experience brought on feelings of wanting to play less or just plain quit the game. It was a difficult decision since I had been there a long time but I decided to move on.
Now, I have a rejuvenated passion for the game because those around me in my new alliance share in the same excitement including our very active leaders. At the end of the day I feel leadership is very important and I would like to thank all of those Alliance leaders who work hard to keep their teams excited, motivated through example, and moving toward achieve the highest value for their time in JWA.
