Early on, tribes do mass-recruit. Yes it works sometimes, mostly not. LIFE were lucky because there were bigger things going on so no-one noticed/cared about them, hence they survived to near the end. Anyone can survive until late stage without warring. Theres a tribe like that on every world, generally flamed to hell until the greats leave and the n00bs reign.
But PIT mass-recruited refugees and players kicked for not participating at the end of a world. Thats more fail then a mass-recruiter at the start.
LIFE has ALWAYS been at war with at least 2 tribes, greenie, and you know it. I don't know why you bother visiting these forums and lying through your teeth... There's a long line of our closest neighbors who have tried to kill us and all failed. There was EOD, .:SF:., tmod, TM85, MB01, a smattering of UNSF, then JG, AF, TBP, VX... lol who else is there to fight. Survivors like yourself had to run clear to the other side of the world to just to escape us.
