Recruiting in game is a mess. You have to slog through ad after ad and there seems to be more recruit seekers than actual recruits.
Why not add a section that is not a chat but a want ad sort of thing divided by a few categories. War/no War, casual players, active players, TP, # of Cups or along those lines and allow players to post with their personal defense team TP, # of war teams available w/top and bottom teams TP level, # of Cups, Casual or active player etc. and then add an invite button.
If categorized correctly, recruiters could find the types of players they’re looking for and chats can go back to being just chats since actual recruits rarely engage there…and in general chats move so fast the chances of anyone seeing what they’re looking for is slim.
Also could do the same for mergers.
