One of the things that my husband James and also Tauna said about MSF is that when your alliance fights another one, you don't really have the opportunity to communicate with them so there is no incentive to "talk smack." MSF also earns rewards on how your team does as well as individual performance, so that helps encourage group cohesion, but even so, people can feel pulled to "dominance hierarchy" each other within the alliance at times.
