In my squad we have absolutely no problem attracting new players. I am one of the officers and we are tasked with kicking every team member who hasn't logged in for 3 days. 4 days since last login = the boot.

At first I thought this was harsh but I came to understand that this was in fact very healthy for our squad. We have 30/30 active members. So if one member gets kicked we immediately appear on the featured squads list. Our squad is also upgraded to level 29. Aspiring members see these stats and join right away. Most of the time we get a new member in less then 40 seconds. It never takes more than 3 minutes before we are completely full again.

Granted, the majority of these new members are lvl 2-3 and pretty useless. Many of them become inactive after a few days and are removed. Every once in a while a promising member sticks around, is active and levels up to 5-6 and is accepted in squad wars. That's how we got a decent team.

Actually recruiting good players lv7+ is hard...

Typical strategies squads are using:

Have members reach top 10 in conflicts - that gets squad lots of visibility

Have recruiters search other squads. Those members "infiltrate" other squads and seduce members to leave and go to theyr squad

Post in forums. Post adds in forums to get higher visibility.

We don't allow recruiting in our squad. We believe good squads don't need to do that

You absolutely need to recruit to keep a good squad and keep growing. Unless you have a bunch of feeders like the huge families, eventually people leave or the squad gets too big for someone ... and you need to go find other players.

You should ALWAYS welcome recruiters honestly. Because if you are good enough, your players won't leave. If they want to leave, they should know there are other squads out there that might suit their needs. The ONLY players I have ever seen get defensive when I dropped by are those in bad squads that lose players.

In general, poaching or trying to recruit in an active squad is pretty bad form. I am not gonna drop in somewhere and recruit when they have 50 chats in the last 8 hours. But if they have 50 chats in 3 days ... then they are fair game. Players that want more than that should know that it is out there. If they got one good player trying to hold a squad together, he deserves to know that there is more out there.

I think that a ton of players leave the game because they do not know how to find a good squad. I got no problem with people trying to get them into one.

Recruiting on Windows become harder than it used to be. There are less layers with 10k+ medals coming to us than say half a year ago. Some other Imp squads say they have similar issue too.

I guess the majority of players with well developed base and high medals already have squads they like and are not inclined to seek new ones. Most of guys we get these days are lvl5-7 with 3-5k medals. Sometimes they grow fast - we have a lvl9 guy who have risen from 10k to 30k medals in 2 months. Sometimes they lose interest and play like 10 battles a week and get booted for inactivity.

Hello Midge,

I desagree with you on recruiters.

We have a full squad, 29 members we keep empty spot.

Our squad is super active lv7+, and we never recruited in other squads.

But in the end it's an opinion, I respect yours.

That's the main reason I signed up to this forum. We are active,addicted and war hard. We have zero issues with potential members joining. However they don't communicate and were barely on. So everytime we give the boot, a second later a new member joins but aren't living up to the expectations. We have some of the best players you can imagine. We have 6 openings that we could fill in seconds, but we'd prefer active players. It's tough.
