actualy the idea was completely 100% used by all FA except for switching clans, hackers just hacked the first two layers after which the clan finished it, defenses and everything was highly coördinated by the people in the faction.
I must say however that the dedication of before has gone down, especialy with myself.
Before, I gave rare parts to anyone of this faction away for free, I worked for free, I instantly genrepped to locations where FA where in need of help when I was able to.
Now I'm just more into myself, I no longer give rare parts away for free(except to clanmembers), I think twice before taking the large effort to help another runner in a fight far away, and when I'm busy I think twice before going down to help defend TH, I still work for free tho, but I don't tell everyone that I'm AV as fast as I did before. (right now I'm not much of a tradeskiller anyway
For those new to the faction, it has only been a few months since Dark left FA, and when they did this faction was put upside down, everyone left.
At the lowest count we had no more than about 10 to 15 people active in this faction ( thus not always online at the same time ).
Working together was our only way to keep our head out:
small detail, phoenix was the last active clan in FA, if phoenix was not here I wouldn't have been here, if I wouldn't have been here killer wouldn't have been here(he left and returned in one week), if killer wouldn't have been here TgR would never have split from phoenix into (restarting) a fighting clan. Also if Mirrorshades didn't restart and exist and TgR did not exist there would have been no real defense for TH, if there would have been no good defense for TH then FA wouldn't get more popular, if FA didn't get more popular than this faction would have died.
You can understand how important it all was for us to work together, that need is no longer as high as it was back then. ( oh btw zane I think you can call yourselves the saviour of FA in a way
I'm talking to much cause I long for those days, altho the attacks shocked us every time and we hated it at the time, it gave us a goal, we where all friends, everyone knew eachother as good as they knew there clan friends. Those days seem far out of reach, as to many people have left this game that I called close friends.
