Well, I done it. Might as well give it a try!If you start your own alliance, it will take quite a while before you get in the top 100 rankings, but you can get more XP by completing tasks, and you will also be able to fly to special alliance destinations. If you're not being competive or wanting the rewards for being in top 100, it's a good move. Make it either closed or by request (open will have all sorts of non-forum members trying to join). If you want rewards like alliance maps, dice, fuel & passengers, you'd be better off joining an alliance already in top 100 or close.
There is a user guide on this subject matter, which you may like to read through, if you have not done so alreadyI got it. Ty!
