I was also an advocate of heavy recruiting and many people were against it. Now look at R&R.. we hit 300 members for the first time in our history (thanks to tancws and others). And for the first time ever, our tech ranking is higher than our infra ranking. And nukes.. I don't even touch that. You see, we finally discovered a mutually beneficial system where I focus on tech, aid and recruitment and the DoD works on nukes and most of the wonders.
There is very few if any internal clashes like there were in the past. And the results is R&R has grown by leaps and bounds. We have increased tech purchases in R&R by 100%, we went form 180 members for quite some time into the 250-300 range....
