    Let's try to be fair here. "Paper companies" can't grow if they're not given opportunity.

    If the larger, more well known tilt the table in their favor by suggesting this becomes a thing, how will any lesser organization get recognized?

    I have never recruited in game, I feel the recruits should pick the company of their choice regardless of membership size. All legal and historical companies are in the company tool for any and all to choose from.

    It should stay that way and membership greed needs to be checked.

    Ummmm they can grow by beginning active and not just sitting on their asses in the company doing diddly squat?

    A paper company is a waste of space. A small active unit that is in solid has the very same chance as a large active unit if all the inactive paper companies where swept aside.

    I think overall recruitment has become a cut-throat process to some extent. I heard one well-known commander try to recruit a bunch of pubs in-game 3 times in less than 2 minutes. "Did you like that attack I just led? You can get a whole lot more of that if you just join the ...." Then another commander came by and tried to one up him with more of the same.

    I'm glad I chose a Sharpshooter company that doesn't require a lot of guys and I've never liked aggressive tactics in trying to convince people of something. We do plenty of damage with the 8-10 or so guys we have in-game on average and I prefer it actually. It feels more like a family to me. I'm good with slow and steady growth. So recruitment happens but not in an aggressive and over-bearing way. When I recruit and tell people we're active that's no bull. Paper companies on the other hand...

    Back to the original topic. I don't have a problem with paper companies recruiting people as maybe they have plans to actually step on a field 'soon' but who knows? But when you hear how aggressive they are in sending many messages to people in a short period of time, then actually land said recruits that will never see the field with that company, that's a damn shame for not only the active companies searching for new recruits, and those people who were probably told they were joining an active company, but for the health of the game as well.

    It begs the question: Why recruit so heavily for a company that has never seen the field and maybe never will? I don't get it.

    Honestly these guys would be much better off just recruiting for other companies who are actually active then they can get their fix and the game will actually invite more of it's player base into the company experience they're seeking out to begin with.

    Ding ding, we have a winner.
    At some point the Company Tool will need a soft reset, hopefully before the game receives a proper release.
