I have read so many posts about people trying to group together to take down big clans, 80% of the time these people are lone wolves sick of dying often. Just play it safe and carefully, I am intact a “lone wolf” and I rarely have trouble with clans, by playing it safe.
If you have stuff then you will most likely be killed. Best bet of staying alive is making people laugh imo. If you antagonise people they will just come and kill you more and more so top tip is to be funny or say nothing.
Also I found it difficult on my own until I had a group now its good and it’s always better playing with people. No one likes desperate people, if you can - get set up then approach a group and prove yourself groups are always looking for good, funny people who can hanndle themselves (and not cry/rage when losing).
