I don't about some of you but i am struggling to attract decent chainers to join my faction. I would understand if it was a new faction but it isnt.My faction has some decent upgrades for its age and i offer full access to my members (not money).
But i still find it hard.
Am i doing this all wrong?
And what do big hitting chainers look for in a faction any info would be most gratefull

its hard to even find potenial to many ppl want a easy ride and expect to join the best faction but wont do sod all for it. to many ppl with high opinions of themselves
thats how torn seems to be these days, even not so good players want everything handed to them and to be part of the best factions and give nothing in return.
keep at it though, call on help from friends if needed, try to get some wars going and chain with the members you already have, it looks more appealing to see a faction already doing a good job warring.
As has been stated previously you need more steadfast, for now try recruiting younger high-potential players and grow as a faction, this will give you a great 'core group' as the faction develops and as you get better Steadfast you will begin attracting stronger members
Faction life provides lots of opportunity to gain merits provide information on how they can obtain them for example: Respect gained, total wins, you get attacked more so possible defends, 100 hits with a particular weapon is good to get them to chain but included in that should be at least an option for everyone within your armoury
Free meds would help people to stay
You don't always need loads of big hitters just a number of willing chainers and possibly 1 bigger hitter to put the bonus attack ona particular faction.
This is where a 50 member cap would help. Yes, I know it is controversial. However, it would spread out the dedicated players, of which there is a limited supply, and likely create more wars.
/me waits for the crying post about how someones faction mates are their "brothers" (cue the violin music) and they couldn't possibly separate from a single one of them without it taking a piece of their heart.
building cohesion within your faction is the most important but most difficult aspect of growing a faction.
you can do this by coordinating activities or giving out rewards for your active people. try to get them to talk to each other on irc to build some bonds.
you can also try finding another faction leader thats in a similar position as yours and merge the two. thats how MnC came about. i went from gunslingers return merging to secret service and later the most active group from secret service merged with rockers to form Mnc.
if you have the money you can pay for guest chainers to help you get your faction bonuses up.
