Yes, I've considered many options including merging with another outfit. There was one potential outfit with a similar mindset which was MoX. We were already doing operations with MoX, and have talked about merging but they've been around since 1998 so it's understandable they're not willing to do so. We could have kept doing operations with them, but with all our leaders burned out and having no interest I don't want want to put MoX into a position where they have to lead our members. Besides that we want our own strong outfit you know? It just doesn't feel quite the same if half of your platoon is another outfit. I had hoped it would've been different, we discussed issues a lot of times including the possibility of doing mass recruiting but that just isn't our style. Luckily SoV is a gaming community at heart, and only 2 members left. The other 30-ish active members stayed so that's great, in the end we're here to enjoy gaming and meet new people, make friends. That's all that matters, we're still doing small PS2 operations once in a while (we had one today) and we might continue recruiting for PS2 at a later date, al though a lot would have to be fixed with the game it's kinda unlikely but who knows!
