I recently lowered the level requirment for my alliance to let a new player join and it has been great!
He really appreciates being in my alliance because we’re active, have experience and answer questions. He has ready access to people who can carry in co-ops if needed and he can share some of the higher level event rewards and build quicker.
What’s in it for me and my alliance? I’m a nice guy anyway and like helping people out, but I do benefit as well. I get a new alliance member who is motivated and loyal to my alliance. Because we’re all helping him, he levels up quickly as well which just helps for future events.
We all have 25 spaces in our alliances, so we can all carry at least one or two new/lower level players, the inpact on your alliance ranking will be minimal imediately and improved in the future! I play the long game anyway, so I’m happy with this kind of strategy. Maybe you would be too, but you just haven’t thought about it.
Give it a go!

P.S. I’m taking applications for my next “New Player” send me an in game message and I’ll let you know when I have a space!
