Why Be a Leader?
You get the stress of trying to manage a bunch of uncoordinated team members who want everything handed to them except for a few who really help out and try to build it up with no tracking tools to figure out who is really contributing or not and with seriously flawed communication. So you have to do like I did if you really care about the alliance and develop your own tools and supplement it with things like discord. But if you have a bunch of extra time on your hands go for it! I created my alliance and we are now 50 strong and having a blast once we got a bunch of dedicated players. Of course there is always fine tuning but that will always be true.
