Sure! A discussion is indeed the intention.
As to your first question, I don’t know, you tell me 😀
But on the second one: This idea that one is “almost forced into an alliance” strikes to me as a bit theoretical. Certainly anybody with those motivations would be turned away from YP recruitment before they’ve even seen the application form: we want people who are genuinely enthusiastic about team play, want to participate, and are not just doing so to protect themselves or because they feel it gives them an advantage.
The idea that there are people out there in alliances almost against their will is to me rather surprising. Why any alliance would want to take in dead weight like that is to me incomprehensible.
Lone wolves have always existed and continue to exist.
