Sometimes the players of opposing factions need to work as a team to face a larger enemy. This has become a reality on Mattherson where a permanent alliance between VS and NC was needed to offset the superior weapons of TR combined with the superior tactics and skill of TR players on this particular server. For a while it seemed like if TR wanted to do something it was just impossible to stop them if they wanted you dead you and all your friends just had to pick up and move to another continent. Part of it is superior players making the smart decision to pick the faction with the most powerful weapons but I think a large part of it is the player skill on TR and a few players really helping bring them together to work as a team. They will just walk across Indar in a single file line killing every single player they come across while taking all bases and nothing can stop them. After that they would use the canyons to trap all of VS and NC and make them fight for their amusement whilst shooting people as they please from the tops of cliffs. Ever since ATRA (Anti-TR Alliance) has formed the game is fun again. Now my friends and I do not get killed by unstoppable forces of red. The problem is now that I see a magrider on fire and I am sad that I cannot help them. Also sometimes it would be fun to meet up with fellow ESF pilots and trade them airplanes after a long hug. There should be a way to make everyone on a faction vote to ally with another faction. This would allow them to go into each others bases and warpgates and drive in sunderers and stuff with each other. What is someone started out as an NC player but over time slowly realized they are really a VS inside shouldn't they be allowed to ride in a sunderer with other VS? If the developers do not want to do this for all players then at least allow outfits to invite people other factions. This is an URGENTLY needed feature.
